Sometimes overtraining IS wonderful

OK, we should this, we should that, but sometimes we do what we just like to do. Today I went to the gym after 6 days off ( DUE TO THE COLD). I needed so much to have an exhausting workout. Finally I did one hour on the treadmill, 1 hour on the bicycle, 37 min on the elliptical machine, and about 20 min in the weights and the abdominal trainer. I could do more, but at about 6 pm. the gym was like the one where Sly was exercising in Rocky 2 ( you know, with Apollo Creed).
 It was too much, I know it, but it was WONDERFUL!!! ( I guess I was too low in my endorphins level ).

The Perfectionism Trap - Why striving for perfection is not the path to weight loss

Image
In this week's episode we watch one contestant teeter on the edge of being obsessive about food. Though mindfulness is a good thing when it comes to eating, obsession, which can lead to a tendency to try and be perfect, is not.

Some of characteristics of a perfectionistic dieter are:
They typically begin a new diet on a Monday.They try to speed up the process by under-eating and over-exercising.They enjoy the thrill of eliminating certain foods.They battle strong urges to eat unhealthy foods and skip exercise.They use the words "good" or "bad" to describe certain foods and their eating behavior.They fall off the wagon after just one bad night and sometimes even after just making one bad food choice.They are convinced that past failed attempts were a lack of effort, or failing to stay focused.The perfectionistic dieter typically sees great results and feels completely in control for a few weeks or months. If this is you, then you know how the bottom can fal…

Early birds get cardio boost; afternoon exercisers can cut down on stretches

Image
We all know a few people who swear by working out at the crack of dawn every day. They naturally enjoy waking up and heading straight to the gym, and claim to get more out of their exercise routines in the early-morning hours.
Then there's another group that wouldn't dream of getting on the treadmill, StairMaster or bike before 6 p.m., when the day is behind them and their muscles feel stretched and loose.
So which is better? Personal trainers and experts on exercise say the effectiveness of your gym time depends partly on your body rhythms as well as what exactly you're trying to get out of it — whether it's losing inches around your waist or putting inches on your biceps.
Primed in the P.M. First, you have to pay attention to your body's abilities, says Cedric Bryant, chief science officer for the American Council on Exercise, the nonprofit fitness certification and education provider. He counsels people that the best time to exercise is the one th…

Are Bite-Size Veggies Better?

Image
According to horticulturist Dr. Leonard Pike, these little carrots contain about 70 percent less beta-carotene than full-size ones. That’s because they’re actually pieces of larger carrots that have been specially bred to ripen faster and grow longer (real baby carrots also contain less beta-carotene). They’re still a fantastic source of beta-carotene, though, and since you’re probably eating more carrots now that “baby” ones are on the scene, I see no reason to dust off your peeler.
By the way, if you’re really concerned about getting enough beta-carotene in your diet, you should cook your carrots. Cooking breaks down the veggie’s tough cell walls, thereby making available more of this antioxidant vitamin precursor.

Ginseng -Side Effects , Precautions and Interactions

Adverse reactions to high-quality standardized ginseng preparations are uncommon and usually minor.
1. Long-term use of ginseng may cause menstrual abnormalities and breast tenderness in some women. Ginseng may have estrogen-like activity resulting in mastalgia and postmenopausal bleeding in women.

2.Ginseng may also have a hypoglycemic effect requiring monitoring in diabetic patients.

3. Overdosage can lead to nervousness, insomnia, headache, skin eruptions, stomach upset, and increased menstrual bleeding and breast tenderness.

4.Ginseng should not be combined with anticoagulant drugs such as Coumadin, or with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that tend to cause bleeding.

5.To avoid hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), even in non-diabetics, ginseng should be taken with food.

6.Consuming caffeine with ginseng increases the risk of over-stimulation and gastrointestinal upset.

7.Ginseng should not be taken by people who have hypertension.

8.Ginseng should be discontinued at …

Top 5 Foods that are Excellent Fatigue Fighters

Image
Water

Up to two-thirds of your body is made up of water, and many basic body functions rely upon this simple substance to run smoothly. So it comes as no surprise that fatigue is the top sign of dehydration. Starting your day with a large cup of water will not only help you stay hydrated, but it can rev up your metabolism too — bonus. If you find drinking plain water difficult, make your own flavored water or add sparkling water to juice to make a refreshing spritzer.





Magnesium-Rich Foods

The unsung mineral hero, magnesium is vital to energy production. It is rare to be low in the mineral, but a little extra dose of magnesium can give you a much-needed boost. Nuts and seeds are both high in the mineral, as are leafy greens like chard and spinach. Don't overlook tofu as a valuable source of magnesium, either. You can find these three food groups in one of my fave recipes: indian spiced chard featuring cashews and tofu.

5 Things To Know About Multivitamins

Image
Most doctors agree that taking a daily multivitamin is a good idea.
Whether it's supporting a healthy heart,
supporting the immune system or promoting eye health,
the reasons to take a multivitamin are almost as diverse
as the formulas available.
To help you choose the one that's right for you,
here are some things you should know. Diet is not enough. No matter how well they eat, Americans – especially women – tend to be short on certain critical vitamins, namely calcium, folic acid, iron, and vitamin D.

Not all vitamins are created equal.
Take a calcium supplement. Because calcium is bulky, a daily multivitamin doesn’t contain enough to meet your daily requirement, especially if your diet is deficient in that nutrient.
Prenatal vitamins are different. 
Pregnant women and those who
plan to become pregnant have special needs when
it comes to multivitamins. For example,
adequate folic acid may reduce a woman’s risk
of having a child with a brain or spinal cord birth

Raw Food Bodybuilders Diet

Image
OverviewA raw food diet is one that eschews any foods that have been brought above about 116 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit at any point in production or preparation. To raw foodists, these temperatures destroy crucial enzymes in food. Though many raw foodists are also vegetarian or vegan, and eat primarily organic foods, this is not strictly required. Raw food bodybuilders use only raw foods, primarily those with beneficial proteins and fats, and dietary supplements to sculpt their bodies. FunctionThe essential function of a bodybuilding diet is adequate calories to trigger an anabolic state and enough protein to foster production of muscle mass. Imposing a raw food diet on bodybuilding makes this basic challenge more difficult because many raw foods are low in calories and protein, and physical activity burns significant calories. Healthy fats are the most calorically dense foods generally available to raw foodists. A raw food bodybuilding diet carefully combines the most c…

Magnesium in Bodybuilding

Image
Magnesium takes the number one spot not only because it has a theoretical mechanism of action (a plausible way it can help bodybuilders) but also due to recent studies identifying the performance enhancing benefits of magnesium supplementation.       Magnesium's role in bodybuilding revolves around energy production and protein synthesis. Studies on many different types of athletes have revealed excessive magnesium losses in sweat. Unfortunately, bodybuilders probably don't make up for these losses in their diets, as many food high in magnesium (nuts, legumes, etc) do not typically top a bodybuilder's grocery list.       Brilla and Haley from Western Washington University in Bellingham recently published the results of a research study in which magnesium supplemented lifters exerted greater quadriceps force that unsupplemented lifters. Considering magnesium's role in bodybuilding, factors leading to a possible suboptimal magnesium status in athletes and results o…

Magnesium- Useful Information

Overview:Every organ in the body -- especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys -- needs the mineral magnesium. It also contributes to the makeup of teeth and bones. Most important, it activates enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate calcium levels as well as copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients in the body. You can get magnesium from many foods. However, most people in the United States probably do not get as much magnesium as they should from their diet. Foods rich in magnesium include whole grains, nuts, and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are particularly good sources of magnesium. Although you may not get enough magnesium from your diet, it' s rare to be truly deficient in magnesium. Certain medical conditions, however, can upset the body's magnesium balance. For example, an intestinal virus that causes vomiting or diarrhea can cause temporary magnesium deficiencies. Some gastrointestinal diseases (s…

Predictors of physical and emotional recovery 6 and 12 months after surgery.

AbstractBACKGROUND: A proportion of patients do not recover fully from surgery or they develop chronic postsurgical pain. The aim of this study was to examine the incidence and predictors of unfavourable long-term outcome after surgery using a prospective cohort design.
METHODS: Some 401 patients undergoing various elective surgical procedures filled in the RAND 36-item Health Survey 1.0 health-related quality-of-life questionnaire before operation and at 6 and 12 months of follow-up to assess changes in pain, physical functioning, mental health and vitality. Preoperative psychological assessment was obtained.
RESULTS: Most patients showed improvement in the various aspects of health-related quality of life after surgery, but a considerable proportion (14-24 per cent) still showed deterioration at 6 and 12 months. Multivariable linear regression analysis identified acute postoperative pain, duration of the operation and preoperative physical condition as the most importan…

Gym Training Exercise Addiction - Bigorexia

Image
In a society where being ‘ripped’ or ‘buff’ and having a steel ‘six-pack’ is revered, is it any wonder that some bodybuilders have crossed the line to addictive behavior? While many of us can barely muster the energy to walk over to the treadmill, many others spend countless hours in the gym. Exercise is a good thing; a great thing! It must, however, be done in moderation. Only you and your doctor can decide what a healthy exercise regimen is for you.
When training, exercising or bodybuilding becomes excessive it can lead to eating disorders and a generally unbalanced life. Anytime someone is so focused on anything (substance or behavior) to the exclusion of all else, they run the risk of becoming an addict.
Those who become addicted to working out and those who suffer from eating disorders are likely to have similar experiences:
Perhaps overweight as a child, this person has a very negative body imageNo matter how this person looks today, they still feel like the ‘over…

Top 10 Vitamins For Bodybuilders & Daily Doses

Image
One of the most confusing issues for any athlete is supplementation. What to take, how much, when to take it, blah, blah, blah. Figuring out a supplementation regimen can be so frustrating at times that it becomes easy to lose sight of the forest for the trees, to forget the purpose of supplementation and to overlook exactly what makes successful bodybuilding.
      It's sometimes easy to forget that the cells in our bodies, particularly muscle cells, rely on certain biochemical reactions for proper metabolism, growth and maintenance. These reactions, in turn, depend upon specific vitamins to help catalyze, or facilitate, their actions.
Without these vitamins, nothing happens. Even if only one of these critical substances is deficient, a bodybuilder's progress can be stifled without warning. Virtually every energy production or muscle growth process we rely on so heavily (and that we sometimes take for granted) is dependent upon, in one way or another, a vitamin.

Biotin in Bodybuilding

Image
It has critical functions in amino acid metabolism and the production of energy from many sources. It also may be one vitamin that some bodybuilders have trouble when attempting to maintain an adequate supply.
The reason bodybuilders may have difficulty with Biotin is because it can be blocked by a substance called Avidin. Avidin is found in raw egg whites, a staple for many athletes. In fact, bodybuilders who eat raw egg whites or who don't cook egg white well enough may experience growth problems with Biotin deficiency if their egg white consumption approaches 20 per day.
