How To Take Advantage Of Summer Weather And Lose Weight

Posted by Saito on May 18, 2009

I find that I have to take certain steps and plan ahead for summer time workouts, mostly because of the hot weather. I’ll explain why:

1. Hot temperatures keep me from doing my workouts in the middle of day when it’s the hottest, I have to do everything mainly in the morning.

2. I seem to have the most energy in the morning anyway so all of this works out, I think everyone on average workouts out in the morning.

Here is what I suggest you do in order:

1. Early in the morning you should start out with your aerobic routines. Doing this first will actually help you have more energy during the rest of the day, anytime after morning hours you won’t have the same amount of energy as you started.

2. After aerobics you should go into your weight lifting routines. Try to do it in the morning as well.

3. When after you’ve completed your work out routines (if you don’t already have a routine check out the Workout Routines section) lunch should be nutritional and balanced. Milk, veggies, fruits, grains you know a completely balanced meal.

4. After lunch try and spend some time outside, the sun is very good for your skin and body growth.

5. When you feel wiped just rest, even if it’s outside. Rest is always important.

If you keep a schedule like that in summer time you should see results within at least a month, keep a good schedule going and enjoy summer vacation!

Stay tuned for the next update!

Balanced Diet: How To Start A Balanced Diet…

Posted by Saito on March 3, 2009

Food Pyramid

I’m sure most of you have heard about the Food Pyramid, it shows you the best way to start a balanced diet and keep a balanced for the rest of your life.

Q & A

Okay then, what do I do first?

By starting a balanced diet you are taking a big step in life, you have to break some bad habits. Like eating unhealthy snacks when your hungry, or having multiple deserts (I’m sure you can think up some unusual eating habits on your own). Give your self time to make the transition, have your parents start buying you healthy natural foods. That is what you do to start…


Do you have a schedule I can use? What should I eat at what times?

Okay I’ll start:

Breakfast:

Start your breakfast with energizing food, full of protein and Vitamin C. I suggest eggs (protein) you can make them anyway you like, for bread I suggest Toast and last but not least for a drink try milk (calcium)/orange juice(Vitamin C) (you probably have more then one glass of orange juice/milk, try them both; have one glass of milk and one glass of orange juice)

Time between Breakfast and Lunch:

Sometimes most people have a snack before lunchtime, try munching on some cheerios (your daily grains) or have vegetable/fruit something healthy.

Lunchtime:

For lunch were all normally at school, so I suggest when you pack your lunch you should take food items that will last through the entire school day. I normally have a tuna sandwich, with a banana (protein again). For a drink I have water, cool and refreshing…try something balanced and nutritional like that (I’m sure you can think of something).

Time between lunch and dinner:

If you’ve just come home from school and want another snack, try crackers with peanut butter (or cheese, you know something edible like that =D). For a drink to go with it try having some more milk.

Dinner:

Normally as teens were not in charge of dinner (mom or dad takes care of that), why not ask them to make a balanced meal? I would suggest you ask them to make a pasta dish, or a rice dish; something with plenty of grains. You could also suggest a meat/poultry dish (chicken, beef or ham). On the side you would want a vegetable group, try broccoli or cauliflower. For desert try dark chocolate (just plain dark chocolate, its good a very good for you), or try a fruit dish.

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

That’s the schedule I recommend, of course its normally you can’t keep a perfect schedule this is just an example. Try making up your own balanced meal schedule, stick to the Food Pyramid rules and you’ll be fine :D.
