He couldn’t have done it without her

- March 14th, 2011

As the saying goes: Behind every successful man is a woman.

In David Moreno’s case, it’s an understanding wife.

Moreno, the 27-year-old owner of MOB Fitness in Ancaster, Ont., credits spouse Laura with helping him drop an astounding 120 pounds.

“To come home after an eight- to 10-hour workday — you’re tired, you’re busy, your wife, she’s a stay-at-home mom, she’s home all day with the kids — and then to tell her, ‘Honey I’m going to the gym for an hour,’ or ‘I’m going running for a couple hours,’ and not to get a frying pan on the side of the head is quite a nice thing,” he tells me with a chuckle.

“You need to have the support of your family and friends around you.”

Dieting, exercise rarely work for belly fat: author

- March 11th, 2011

Dr. Berg

Traditional dieting and sit-ups don’t work for eradicating midsection fat, says Dr. Eric Berg.

Here’s a press release from the good doc’s PR people:

Belly fat, also known as visceral fat is highly sensitive to stress and is under control of hormones. Dieting or the restriction of calories tends to increase stress activating that belly fat hormone called cortisol.

Everyone knows that exercise increases the burning of calories. However, exercise is a type of stress and workouts tend to add stress unless the intensity is low. You may be burning calories but very little fat calories. Instead, the type of calories you are burning are mostly sugar calories — triggering the cycle of cravings-binging-weight gain. This explains the eight months of treadmill with very little results in the midsection.

No one diet will work wonders for every body. Bodies have different reasons for weight gain, one to the next. There are exact reasons that cravings remain or become worse, why omitting certain foods won’t lose inches, and also why certain types of exercise won’t reduce weight at all. Dr. Eric Berg, 24-year-veteran chiropractor specializing in weight loss, has made breakthrough discoveries that isolate these reasons and principals and details them in his new book The 7 Principles of Fat Burning.

7+PrinciplesIn his book, Dr. Berg goes well beyond dictating a traditional counting-calories-and-exercise regimen, giving the reader a thorough understanding of how the body burns fat and handing the control right over to the person doing the dieting. Through his research, he isolated some 6 hormones (elements secreted by glands which affect various bodily functions) that either burn or produce fat within a body, and the dietary and exercise “triggers” which cause them to act. These triggers, activated by poor diets and the absence of or incorrect exercise, result in one of four principle body shapes, each based in a particular weakened gland.

Thoughts, anyone?

How much is too much?

- February 16th, 2011

smallbeforeafterfront

Andrew Flynn, of Guelph, Ont., lost 57 pounds last year — in just 100 days!

That’s about four pounds a week, according to my calculations.

Doctors commonly recommend one to two pounds per week.

Is this too fast? What do YOU think? How much is too much?

For more on Flynn’s amazing transformation, check out next Monday’s Keeping Fit column in a Sun Media newspaper near you.
