I was reading in my idea fit magazine about obesity in kids. One of the things it said was that due to the kids increasing weight their lifespan is going to be less than our own. I look at my own kids and as a Mom, of course I am always worried about them. Especially since I have battled my weight. I hope I have been teaching them enough about nutrition and how to cook good food for themselves. I Was watching Joel Osteen who spoke about a person he knew. He said that if we continue to act as we have it will continue to be a problem through generations.
1.Avoid most saturated fats.
2.Avoid all trans fats.
3.Eat only 100% whole grains.
4.Eliminate added sugar.
5.Never eat sugar syrups (high fructose corn syrup is part of this felonious grouping)
REMEMBER SUGAR IS THE ENEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is important to set exercise and wellness goals when you are beginning/maintaining your fitness journey. Make sure they are attainable and measurable! When creating goals, thing about your time commitment and your starting fitness level. You and your best friend or workout buddy might have completely different schedules and you may have more experience than he/she.
The headline says it all, "US Waistlines Expands Despite More Exercise". So if we're exercising, why are we still obese? Isn't exercise the "cure"? As a personal trainer and fitness professional, I'd like to say yes. However, Americans can't lose weight until we become honest about how we eat.

Its summer time and everyone is going outside so let’s talk about HYDRATION! If you are out doing anything that raises your HEARTRATE and makes you sweat a good rule of thumb just like in exercise is that if you are out and/or exercising about 1hr or less water is a sufficient replacement.
Do you enjoy grilling outdoors during the summer? For many, nothing can compare with the taste of a meal cooked on the barbie. However, studies show that grilling meats at very high temperatures can create heterocyclic amines (HCAs), chemicals that can increase cancer risks.The American Cancer Society provides the following tips when grilling meat, whether indoors or outside. Avoid overcooking to the point where pieces look charred and black. Choose lean cuts and trim excess fat.
