The Importance of Exercising

If you're more of a couch potato than a gym junkie, then you might not realise just how important exercise is. Alternatively, you might know that you should do more exercise, but currently don't.

Here's what you need to know.

1. Exercise can help to keep you healthy. Because so many people are overweight, it's important that people get as much exercise as they can, to avoid being obese and to reduce the risk of serious health problems later in life.

2. Exercise burns off excess calories, so that you maintain your current weight or lose weight. You might be looking to lose weight, or perhaps you're exercising in order to build muscle and gain weight.

3. No matter what sort of exercise you do, you can make it exciting and enjoyable. Instead of thinking that you have to go to a boring aerobics class, why not see what other exercise classes are available near you? You might be surprised to learn that you can learn yoga, spinning, tai chi and much more.

4. Exercise can also help you to learn new skills. You might want to learn martial arts, or perhaps you never learnt to swim. You don't have to stick with running or weight training in order to exercise.

5. If you go to the gym, take an exercise class, or join a fitness club, you'll meet new people, and are bound to make new friends, with common interests. You might find people to train with, and they can help you to reach your health and fitness goals too. Exercise doesn't have to be done on your own, so if you're not exercising because you haven't got the inclination, why not see about joining a gym?

6. Being fit and healthy sets a good example to your children. If you spend all of your time on the computer, in front of the TV, or playing games, then they're likely to emulate you. Why not take them swimming, or kick a football around the park, or play tennis in the garn with them once in a while? You'll be helping their development, and reducing the risk of them being overweight too.

7. Exercising can help you to set, and achieve personal challenges, and better yourself. Perhaps you'd never have thought that you could learn to swim, run a 10k race, or be flexible enough to perform yoga. Maybe you want to reach your healthy weight loss goal, or become stronger, or change your lifestyle to become healthier and fitter, through exercise.

8. Regular exercise can prevent or reduce the risk of some medical conditions, especially when combined with healthy eating. If you want to reduce the risk of diabetes, through being overweight, or just don't want to have joint problems or back problems from sitting at a desk in an office all day, then you'll want to make sure that you get some exercise.

9. There are lots of ways to exercise, from doing the gardening, to running a marathon. You might want to go for walks, or run 5k races, you might want to go swimming regularly, you might want to go to exercise classes, or you might want to go to the gym, or get out on your bike. No matter what you do, the important thing is that you're doing some sort of exercise.

10. If you've changed your diet, and been going to the gym for a while, but are not making the progress you want to, then perhaps you'd benefit from a personal trainer. They're not just for the celebs, and can help those new to exercise and gyms. No matter what you health and fitness goals, your personal trainer will be on hand to help you reach them.

Now you know more about exercise, and how important it is, what's stopping you from getting fit and healthy?

Weight Loss Technique Eliminates Emotional Overeating: Halts Need for Comfort Foods

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) -- Most diet and exercise plans require will power - and that's why they fail. But a simple "emotional acupressure" technique eliminates the need for will power along with the underlying causes of emotional overeating.

"The real drivers in weight loss cases are emotional issues such as self-worth and anxiety," explains The Editors, the Stanford-trained engineer who developed EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). "Until these emotions are properly resolved, will power will take a back seat and the need for 'comfort foods' will win out every time."

New York City therapist Carol Look, LCSW, DCH, agrees. "When you use sugar or overeating as a way to numb your feelings," says Dr. Look, "no diet in the world can help you. Even the latest surgery does nothing to correct underlying emotional imbalances that trigger overeating. EFT doesn't focus on calorie restriction. Instead, it targets emotions that lead to immediate cravings, hunger pangs, and poor eating habits, such as emotions triggered by daily stress, issues from the past, a family history of obesity, limiting beliefs about ones ability to lose weight, fear of the future, and other factors that trigger binges."

EFT addresses these issues by combining focused thought with gentle fingertip tapping on key acupressure points. Dr. Look and other EFT practitioners worldwide report a 50- to 80-percent success rate for most who try it for weight loss, and the results, especially for specific cravings, are often immediate.

"Clients soon notice that they begin to 'forget" about eating binges," she says, "and they become engaged in activities other than secretive eating or food shopping. Their weight comes off as the underlying issues are addressed and the basics of symptomatic behavior are tapped away."

As word about EFT spreads, a growing number of medical doctors and other health care practitioners are teaching it to patients.

"Some day the medical profession will wake up and realize that unresolved emotional issues are the main cause of not only compulsive overeating but all illnesses," says Eric Robins, MD, a Los Angeles urologist. "When that happens, EFT will be one of medicine's primary healing tools. It already is for me."

"America is in the throes of an obesity epidemic," says Craig. "Public health officials are concerned because people of all ages, including children, are at risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems. These are preventable tragedies. EFT is a new technique, but it already has an impressive track record in helping people lose weight, get in shape, stay active, and improve their overall health."

The Perfect Meal Plan For Flat Abs - Top 5 Picks of What Your Diet Should Have

So, you are looking for the perfect meal plan to build those flat abs? You are in good company. A lot of folks looking for a sleek, awesome midriff start by tweaking their diet. Lets get started on that path shall we?

Here are our top 5 choices for flatter abs:

1) Almonds
These nuts are delicious and a great source of protein, fiber, vitamin E and magnesium. Vitamin E is a great antioxidant that helps your body fight free radicals (bad stuff, trust me on that). Magnesium is a mineral that helps produce energy, build and maintain muscle mass and keep blood-sugar levels stable. This helps reduce cravings which can lead to overeating and then weight gain. Some research also indicates that they help block calories by helping reduce the absorption of fat. It doesn't get better than that does it.

2) Soy
Soybeans have long been a wonderful source of fiber, antioxidants and protein. They too are very versatile. You can have dry-roasted soybeans as a snack and add edamame into soups. Adding silken tofu to your morning smoothie is a great start to the day. Some studies indicate that participants who consumed a soy milk-based meal replacement instead of a traditional dairy-based one lost more weight.

3) Berries
Berries with their loads of fiber are a great friend especially if you are looking to lose weight. Adding more fiber to your diet helps your body absorb the other stuff that eat. Fiber traps food particles before they are fully broken down and helps them on the way out of your system. In addition, berries are also great sources of antioxidants and other cancer-fighting nutrients.

4) Leafy greens
Mother was right. Those leafy greens are definitely a great addition to your meals. The cartenoids (fancy name for stuff that helps prevent cancer) are awesome but the best part of having leafy greens is that they are a source of calcium, fiber and are low in calories.

5) Quinoa (KEEN-wah)
We bet that most of you have never seen or heard of this. Half a cup of this whole grain contains 11 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Some brands require rinsing prior to use. Besides that, you cook it like you do any other grain. The nutty flavor and crunchy texture give you the feeling that you are eating something between a couscous and brown rice. Your waistline will love this.
