Exercise and Diet ? For Your Waistline
Caring for your body is the most important thing you can do in your life. You only get one body, and it needs attention. Too often in society, we let things get out of control and then we try to find the easy way out. In weight loss, this means crash diets and diet pills. These are not the best for our bodies, as they suck out the energy and don't provide enough nutrition.
It really isn't that hard to eat well and get some exercise. You don't have to start running in the mornings, and you don't have to join one of the famous weight loss institutes. Simple answers are out there for the taking. You just have to be willing to find them.
The Diet Portion
A diet should consist of common sense. You and your body know what is right to eat and how much of it to consume. Your mom told you to eat your fruits and vegetables, and she was right. Some east diet tips and things to remember:
Stocking the cupboards and refrigerator with healthy alternatives will reduce your impulse snacking, or at least minimize the junk food you put in your body. Every major diet talks of portion control. You might feel hungry the first couple of days, but your body will adjust. You'll start burning stored fat.
The Exercise Element
The bombardment of exercise advice is not subsiding, and won't any time soon. But you just can't pick and choose bits and pieces that you find convenient. On the contrary, your regimen doesn't have to be so structured that it will push you away. Common sense is king here, too. Getting exercise for your body doesn't have to come at the gym. It can be done in the everyday places, doing everyday tasks:
Finding the simple solutions are easy. It just takes a little common sense in your everyday life to get the most out of it. Not everyone was designed to have six pack abs, but everyone can be healthy. Your body mass index, or BMI, a measure of health in relation to your weight, signals what medical conditions you are in line for. Break the trend, just one habit a week. You'll soon realize that you feel better and you'll desire more results.

Exercising - Ways of staying motivated!
The number one reason people say they do not exercise is lack of time. Not long ago, a twenty-year study was completed centering on the theory that, "There is not as much time in the day as there used to be." The study concluded that just the opposite was true. It showed that with all the technology today, we have 1.5 more hours in a day than we did twenty years ago. In other words, with all the gadgets out there to help us communicate and manage our time, we should have an hour and a half more time for ourselves. What is the solution?

When Exercising Right Looks Wrong II
Enter any health club and a concept is very apparent, the same exercise performed again and again. Crowded floor space taken up by machines designed to make exercise easier, and a thought process called 'gym science' which involves no science at all. My last article touched on some of the thought processes or lack of thought that goes into proper exercise. With the advent of the computer exercise science has changed drastically. Particularly needle EMG (electro myo-gram) testing, this is where a hair thin needle is inserted into a muscle and its electrical and contractile properties are measured. The results of these studies have drastically changed how we exercise. Exercises that we did in the past have been proven ineffective and better exercises have been proven more efficient and effective.

The Truth About Lactate and Exercise
For years exercise scientists and physiologists have preached that lactate/lactic acid build-up in the muscle is the direct cause of muscle fatigue and a decrease in performance. It is proposed that lactate builds up in the muscle cells during intense exercise and literally "poisons" them, essentially shutting down activity biochemically by reducing the pH or increasing the acidity level. Lactate has therefore been dubbed a metabolic by-product or dead end and as the enemy of human exercise and performance. This may be far from the truth as this article explains.
