Answer by bigcountry456
I think you just need to focus on consistency. It seems like you have a lot on your plate. Maybe try to focus on 1 or 2 fitness activities and keep the nutrition under control. Do you buy your own groceries? I just don’t buy junk food, plain and simple. Go with the whole grain over the white. 2% or 1% milk is much better than whole if you want to lose weight. Soy milk (silk brand isn’t bad) is a great option. Focus more on veggies especially steamed and raw. Use low fat dressings like vinaigrette. Chicken, turkey, and fish over beef and other red meats. They are just flat out better for you and have less fat. I was a huge bacon guy and switched to turkey bacon. Mix the meats with the veggies just to incorporate the veggies. Snacks are always a good idea, but make sure they healthy(apples, oranges, carrots/cucumbers and ranch).

Healthy eating and fitness tips?

Question by shrenie: Healthy eating and fitness tips?
I’m on a mission to start eating healthier and lose weight. Any tips on things to avoid or things to help?

Best answer:

Answer by Aren
1. No soda. Period.

2. Dessert and other SMALL “unhealthy” things are ok once in a while if you’ve been working really hard.

3. Great workout includes 20 minutes of weights and 30 minutes of cardio- BOTH GUYS AND GIRLS. Add extra if you wish.

4. Drink water to fill yourself if you’re hungry and it’s not time to eat. Sugar free gum works well too.

Travel tips to Montreal!?

Question by rajeever: Travel tips to Montreal!?
Hi,

I’m travelling to Montreal from Boston on May 24th (Thruday) and returning on May 28th (Monday).

I want to see the city, meet lot of people and party…

Any ideas and recommendations where i should go and stay. Also i’m planing to stay in the youth hostel. BTW, i’m 28yr old straight guy.

Best answer:

Answer by Marie
Unfortunately the youth hostel is located on the near west side, mostly English speaking and usually inundated weekends by American kids that come up to party and get drunk and get laid and make noise. However, the McGill university area, and a couple of the best Museums on Sherbrooke Street are also a short walk away.

Otherwise, you are probably going to be told to visit Old Montreal (where the movie “The Score” was filmed) and the adjoining port and it is nice but also touristy, not too much different from your Fanueil Hall and Chris Columbus waterfront park but quite a bit larger. Actually there are just a handful of truly old buildings in Old Montreal; most of it was actually the financial district in the first 2/3 of the 20th century but taken at that the 1900-1925 bank buildings’ architecture (the buildings now converted to restaurants and shops and condos and artists lofts) are quite interesting. And nothing has been torn down and turned into parking lots. Although touristy as I just wrote the district is worth an afternoon and early evening’s wandering and dining.

The REAL Montreal, with the people that define its true character, much as the REAL Boston is an amalgam of Back Bay and South End and Southie and Allston and Cambridge and Somerville, etc. etc. is found in the more French speaking (though all are bi-lingual; still remember to be courteous if you do not know French and first say “Pardonnez-moi. Je suis ameriçain/e et ma français est mauvais.”) eastern side, areas called The Plateau and The Main and the Quartier Latin with the principal streets being St-Laurent and St-Denis and upper Park Avenue and to a lesser extent Ontario and East St Catherines. Plenty of places to party, to meet and see people, with a large music scene and hundreds of restaurants and shops. To a much lesser extent but still very interesting is the Atwater Market and St-Henri district on the near southwest side. Beyond those areas (and seeing more museums – Montréal is a much greater museum town than Boston) it will also be interesting to visit the vibrant ethnic areas. Immigrants mix well in Montréal and are not ghettoized (kind of like your Everett-East Somerville-Malden area), in fact there is an area with notable populations among others of both Hassidic Jews and fundamentalist Muslims and as yet they are not bombing or shooting at each other. Wandering around areas like Côtes-des-Neiges, Jean-Talon, Outremont-Park Ave and Beaubian is very pleasurable and interesting. There are no slums in Montréal to speak of and although there is crime it is less than in the States and there are no specifically dangerous neighborhoods like parts of your Roxbury and Dorchester.

Most of the aforementioned areas are easily reachable by métro. Our public transit system, except for commuter rail, is somewhat better than Boston’s and several bus lines run all night.

Of course while here you should treat yourself to at least one great Québec French restaurant. Most menus have at least one or two game dishes and bison and occasionally horse (chevaline) dishes should you wish to try something carnivourous not usually offered in the States. And also have a sandwich meal from a renowned “Montréal smoked meat (viande fumée) place, which is our version of pastrami. Most people who know both Montréal viande fumée and New York pastrami feel Montréal’s is better; unfortunately we Canadians suffer from an inferiority complex and are afraid to agressively promote our stuff in the States (did you know that 90% of maple syrup is harvested here, not in Vermont, as are 85% of the lobster catch, not from Maine waters?); but just try to tell me after you’ve had a fine viand fumée sandwich
if there would not be lines of people at Montréal smoked meat places if they were to be in the Boston area (especially before games at Fenway Park of the Bank North Center!). (By the way, the version of “Montreal brisket” sold by your DemoulasMarketBasket chain is pure crap and I have called and complained vorciferously). But if you like spicy brown mustard on your pastrami bring your own; for some cockamamie reason it was not sold here until just recently (French’s brand, not Gulden’s, has just come to our market); most viande fumée places offer only the traditional sweet yellow, although occasionally some will be able to find a jar of dijon if a customer demands.

PS: You may be straight but know that Montréal is a very gay tolerant city, more than San Francisco, but with a gay population that does not show off and rub faces in it. Also, as you probably have heard, we Canadians and particularly Montréalers are generally more libertine (and without guilt or denial) than are most Americans. Public partner-swapping clubs are legal here, for example.

Workout/Fitness Plan Tips?

Question by Vman: Workout/Fitness Plan Tips?
Alright so I have recently decided that I want and need to get fit again. The thing is, is that I used to be involved in baseball, tennis, and track. The only sport right now that im in is track. I am trying to work out a fitness plan that will allow me to get thinner, and more fit, wihtout having to specifically see a weight room. Im more of a cardio guy, so I prefer to stay away from the weights as much as I can. But I often hit the weights for track and muscle strengthening. I guess what im asking is that, what is a good cardio workout plan? And is it healthy to do just specically cardio? Im thinking about getting into swim, but I feel like an idiot when I try and ask someone what to do, lol. So any help would be appreciated.

Exercising Tips?

Question by Alyssa(:: Exercising Tips?
Does anyone know any tips about losing some fat around the thigh area? Any tips on toneing abs?

Best answer:

Answer by personalizedfitnessprograms.com
Unfortunately there is no such thing as spot specific reducing which means doing exercises to make one area of your body change. But what you can do it tone your entire body, meaning working out your entire body and the places that you want to see change in will change and the places that you are already happy with will only get better. Cardio is a great way to lose body fat overall, so as you lose weight the weight will come off of the thigh area along with the rest of your body that you have fat to burn. As far as tips on ab toning, the basic crunch is going to be good, bicycle crunches, leg raises etc…. any of those will help with the toning of your abs. Here is the link to a site that gives away one free workout and fitness questioner try it out, hey it’s free nothing to lose (but weight icon wink Exercising Tips? ) it’s http://www.personalizedfitnessprograms.com/

Exercise for couples with kids?

Question by RickyRicardo: Exercise for couples with kids?
My wife and I both want to lose about 50 lbs each. We have two young boys that take up a good deal of our time, and by the time they are in bed (8pm Sun-Thurs, 9pm weekends) we are both pretty worn out and just want to sit down and watch TV or play games.

We’ve tried exercising before…I built DDR pads for us to play on, we’ve bought a weight bench, we have various other odd things that we’ve tried, but we have problems staying with a program because it gets so darn boring. We’d like to find something more fun that we can do without having to have a babysitter over three times a week or spend a fortune on.

Best answer:

Answer by ME®
Making exercise a priority is a challenge for everyone. And for parents it can be especially difficult to find time to workout because of the full plates that they often juggle. When summer arrives the juggling act becomes even more tricky with kids home from school and involved in extracurricular activities.

But, finding time for regular physical activity is so important that it should be a priority placed on your calendar, just like your kids’ softball game. A parent needs to exercise not only for themselves, but also for their kids benefit. It’s important to set a good example. If your children never see you engage in fitness or if they hear you complain about working out, then they are going to have a negative image of exercise. Let them know that you workout to stay healthy, to be strong and to have more energy and stamina (so you can keep up with them)!

The big question is how to make it a priority that fits in your schedule. Well, it’s actually easier than you may think. With a little planning you can find ways to incorporate workouts into the time you spend with your children. Regardless of what age your children are, there’s a way to find time to workout (often even with your kids)! Here are some tips based on the age of your children.

Age: Infant through pre-school

Fit in exercise time while they are napping. Try a home exercise video, walking or jogging (if you have a treadmill), jumping rope.
Occupy them for even 15 minutes with a video or toy while you do some toning exercises like squats and tricep dips.
Grab your stroller and go for a brisk walk*. Or, buy a jogging stroller for more flexibility. With a jogging stroller you can walk faster, jog or even run at a fast pace. And, for veteran rollerbladers, you can even use the stroller for some skating time.
For younger children, you can use a back carrier to transport them while walking. This can burn even more calories as the extra weight makes it more challenging.
Turn on some music and dance together. Toddlers love dancing, especially when their parents joins in.
Push your kid on a swing. And, after every push complete one squat.
Use an infant carrier or bike trailer to enjoy a bike ride together.

Age: Grade School

Try rollerblading or skating together.
Spend an afternoon at a park with a playground, but don’t spend the whole time relaxing on the sidelines – join in on the fun. Spend some time swinging to help workout your legs. Try making it across the monkey bars – even just once (it’s a great upper body workout and you’ll be amazed that your kid does it with such little ease). Try some pull-ups using a bar on the playset. Do some tricep dips on a nearby park bench.
Play catch with a ball or get a small group together for a kickball or softball game.
Make Saturdays family bike outing day.
Involve your kids while you strength train. Let them count your reps out loud for you and/or clock your rest time in-between sets.
For pool outings, don’t just spend time soaking up the sun. Walk back and forth in shallow water while your kids have fun splashing about.
On rainy days that force you inside, walk or run up and down the stairs. You might even make it a contest to see who can finish 5 complete rounds first.

Age: Teenagers

Register for a fun run (or walk) event and spend time together training for the event.
Purchase a family gym membership and workout together weekly.
Play tennis or basketball together.
Consider joining a community volleyball or softball team that includes enthusiasts of all ages.
Don’t just sit and cheer your kids at their sporting events. Every few minutes do some walking or jumping jacks or squats.
Implement a daily family walk each day before or after dinner.
Work together in the yard raking leaves, planting flowers, trimming trees.

So, with all the above recommendations, you no longer have the “I’m a parent – I don’t have time to workout” excuse. If you implement these activities for just 30 minutes three times per week, you can easily burn an extra 450 calories or more! Plus, working out sets a great example for your children that will teach them at an early age how important (and easy) it is to make physical fitness a part of daily life. Exercising with your kids also provides the extra bonus of spending quality time together.

does anyone have any workout tips?

Question by : does anyone have any workout tips?
i am 17 years old and i never really worked out seriously before. i am a member at a gym and when ever i go in to lift some weights i never know where to start. can anyone give me some tips on what i can do?

Best answer:

Answer by ClickMaster
It’s rather impossible to give you meaningful tips for working out when you haven’t even suggested what you mean by working out.

One tip, however, applies to just about everyone and that is “goals”. The very first thing you should do is create a list of realistic goals; things you want to achieve with your workouts. Then put the goals in order of importance. From there you can begin to decide what “workout” will mean to you.

Here are a few possible goals you may want to include on your list. Excellence in a sport or occupation, strength, explosive power, endurance, flexibility, systemic fitness, speed and agility, physical dexterity, stress reduction, general health and well being, body sculpting, body awareness, coordination, poise and comportment, balance, body composition, peace of mind, mental acuity, increased life expectancy, etc.

The reason goals are important is because without them you have no way of measuring success. Measuring success is important because success is the greatest motivator. Once you see your new self materializing whether in aesthetics or performance, you will be motivated to continue. And, that’s important because working out is hard and motivation doesn’t come easy.

After goals you should start studying the basics of anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, nutrition, etc. That’s important because it’s your body and no one will care about it or care for it like you. It’s your’s for life so you need to understand the fundamentals of the science of it so you can become a good steward or your health an well being for life as opposed to wandering from one “trainer” to another “trainer” getting bad information, big doses of gym rat mythology, etc. The world of fitness is full of really bad information and a veritable sea of it flows through this forum every day.

Use the links below. They’re excellent sources…most of them courtesy of the US government. And beware dot coms (that stands for commercial which means commerce which is buying and selling) and websites full of advertising and plans which sound too good to be true. Try to stick with good sources of information.

Good luck and good health!!

Physical Fitness Test Running?

Question by Max: Physical Fitness Test Running?
Hey. I need to get at least 21 minutes or below on my 3 mile run, but right now, I am at around 24 minutes. I have everything else on the PFT set, but I need a score of 280 or higher. Do any of you guys have advice for improving on your 3 mile? I can run at a decent pace at first, but then after a while it’s hard to breath.

Also, is there a way to improve a 6:48 mile to a 6:30 or below mile in one week? Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by Anon
I’m in the same place as you. You are one minute faster than I am at the 3 mile run. What helps me a lot is to make sure I have a cadence in my breathing; like breathe in for 2 steps and breathe out for 2 steps. It helps a lot, since you aren’t erratically breathing.

Also, try lifting your knees up a little when you run.

One thing that helps me a lot is to make sure I’m leaning forward just a little, not not arching my back. Good posture.

Make sure when you bring your foot off the ground, “spring” your foot. Extend your foot like you would when you’re on your tip-toes. It helps a lot when your tired elsewhere and need an extra boost. Try it out in a few test runs to see if you can do it the entire time. If you can’t, then do it in the end when the rest of your body is tired. That way your ankles are fresh and ready and you can run a little faster.

Don’t cross your arms across the center of your body. Keep them on their respective sides. Not doing so will cause your whole body to twist and slow you down.

Relax your face and especially your arms/hands. Don’t pump them like sprinting, and don’t clench your fists. It wastes energy. Loose, relaxed motions, but not to where you’re dancing or flopping around.

Eat a solid meal filled with GOOD carbs. Not sugary, easily-burnt carbs. Eat seeds, nuts, bananas, etc. Also have a water bottle filled with slightly salty water for electrolytes. Do this all an hour before you run.

When you run, look forward. Looking down restricts your airflow. Have your head up. Breathe through your shoulders, not your stomach. Your chest should move up and down, allowing all the air possible in. Bring your shoulders back a little; still comfortable and relaxed, but enough to puff out your chest just a tad.

If you gets cramps, breathe in as deep as you can and breathe out everything. Cramps in your side mostly come from excess carbon dioxide building up. It is heavier than oxygen. If you don’t take full breathes and breathe all your air out, it may collect over time.

Hope this helps. Good luck with running. Don’t give up.

Q&A: Question about eating healthy?

Question by Sarah Jessica: Question about eating healthy?
Hey:) so summers coming soon and I want to tone up for a new bikini(: I was wondering if eating stuff like dark green salad, drinking lots of water, & raw carrots, raw broccoli, and stuff like that are good for you? I’m no where near fat, just gotten a little chubby because of winter and lack of exceirse, and eating right. I’m also doing some jogging and stuff like that. Any more tips to tone up? And is that up there gonna help me lose weight + working out? Let me know, thank you very much :))

Best answer:

Answer by goo_head_83
Well I hope you plan on eating more than just a green salad and carrots. Basically, all fruits and veggies are going to be good for you to eat along with whole wheat carbs. However, since you said you wanted to build muscle, you are going to want to have protein and lots of it. So don’t forget things like low fat dairy products such as cheese, cottage cheese, and milk and lean meats like fish and chicken. Try to limit red meat intake to once a week or less and drink lots of water or tea.

Can anyone help me score a 300 on the Marine PFT?

Question by Jeff: Can anyone help me score a 300 on the Marine PFT?
Im trying to get into PLC and I want to have the best score possible on the PFT. Im currently at 13 pull-ups, 64 sit-ups, and can run 3 miles in about 20 minutes. Im trying to get better but am not making any progress. Also im underweight by Marine standards and am having trouble gaining weight so any muscle building tips would be appreciated.

Best answer:

Answer by jasin
You are at a 217 right now. I suggest you do a lot more pull ups and cardio. Work on your forearms, biceps, and triceps mostly. Use light weights (20lbs) with high reps. You want to get cut and increase core strength NOT bulk up and get massive. For the crunchers do more cardio, lots more running. That will reduce fat around your abs and mid section.
