Running To Lose Weight

“For me running has always been the easy way if I wanted to lose five pounds in a couple of weeks. Running has been the only thing and the quickest thing that works for me. So, I really started running when I came to LA, that would have been back in 1996 when I started with Access—and I was having to stand next to all these Hollywood celebrities. And then I was running consistently.

I’ve been running five days a week now straight for about 3 months and I’ve already lost 12 pounds. That was nice. I do it now five days a week, probably 45 minutes per run. It’s tough to try to fit it all in. But it makes you feel so much better and I enjoy it.”

Ab Lounger (Ab Lounge)

From EverydayHealth.com:

Q: I am wondering if using an Ab Lounger will provide a good exercise on the days that I am not riding a bike or walking to lose extra weight?

A:  The Ab Lounger — a piece of exercise equipment regularly advertised on television — uses resistance training to create a “fancy” sit-up that helps to tighten and tone abdominal muscles. It is not going to burn a significant amount of calories, however, and thus does not significantly contribute to weight loss.The Ab Lounger is NOT a substitute for bike riding, walking, or other aerobic activities that burn calories effectively. To lose weight — and more importantly, keep it off — you need to exercise at a moderate intensity for about 200 to 300 minutes per week. Walking and bike riding are two great examples of moderately-intense exercises.

Deli Chicken/Wedges/Veg Dinner Has More Calories Than Big Mac Meal!

“With 905 calories, 46 grams of fat and 2,498 mg of sodium, the quarter-chicken dinner has more calories, about the same amount of fat and twice the sodium as a Big Mac and medium order of fries.”

This is surprising!  This was one of my stand-by meals.  Go to Sobey’s and pick up something at the deli.  Now it’s shown that the chicken white meat meal with a side of veggies and wedges has more calories and salt than McDonalds!  Crazy.   Guess we really need to switch to salads.  Check out the article here.

To save your meal, do the following:

  • Remove the skin to help reduce the fat
  • Pass on the potato wedges, which are indeed cooked like French fries to cut more fat.
  • Skip the stir-fried vegetables, likely awash in oil, to make the fat and calorie count even better
  • The best option is to pair the quarter (and now skinless) chicken with a fresh green salad and a whole wheat roll.

Work Out (Harder) in Less Time

Study from McMaster University in Ontario:

“Short-duration, high-intensity training sessions may be just as effective as longer duration, less intense exercise. Simply put, you can do your workout in just 20 minutes and still see the benefits.”
