James here, i hope you’re well.
How have you enjoyed the recipe book i sent the other week? Tried any yet?
The world is full of people out there that think that exercise is the answer to weight loss, and there right for about 30%.
I mean i don’t blame anyone for thinking like this. I mean all you have to do is stay up past 11pm, flick on the telly and see dozens of weight loss machines promising you this and that. No wonder people are so miss informed.
Check out this ‘cheeky’ pic i found? I posted this on my FastFatLoss4Life Facebook wall and its been the most popular pic I’ve posted all year!
Now the question is did heaps of people click on it because they agree or because they really like that brand of flour?
Enough of my lame jokes lets start this weeks 60sec with James.
“Hi James, just wondering about the benefits/disadvantages of compression type clothing like ‘skins’ or ‘slyx’?” - Pauline
When you apply tight clothing to a body part it accelerates the blood flow in that area. This gets more oxygen to your muscles and boosts performance.
The disadvantages of these clothes is you may find them a little uncomfortable and you may look a little silly Im a fan though.
“I have a torn muscle and ligament in my right hip that about two years old, pain from lupus in my joints, sciatica and Im using Visalus diet shakes and I need to do some exercise. Can you tell me the best low impact exercise thats not going to play up with my arms and back. When I try to do anything too strenuous I get pain in those areas. Thanks.” - Leesa
Congratulations on taking these steps to get in shape, thats one of the best things you could do.For exercise i would simply recommend the stationary recumbent bike, you can find these at any decent gym. Zero impact on your joints and also supports your back.You can also try a slow moving yoga. Yoga is low impact and will build your strength and if you can do it in a hot room, the temperature is usually around 35 degrees your flexibility improves and is less strenuous on your joints.
“I need 2 lose at least 30kgs but i get very bored with diets and i cant stick 2 some of the diets as it makes me more hungry” - Eva
Eva I’m going to give you some tough love. Suck it up. Don’t think eating healthy as a diet. Think of it as your new way of eating. Use my 52 low carb recipes to get started or at least get some ideas to get started. Avoid weight loss shakes, magic pills and all that crap.
A good friend of mine Craig Leonard wrote a quest post here called Eat Carbs, lose Fat & build Your Ideal Physique. I think you may like it
Start cutting refined carbs from your diet, avoid soft drinks and alcohol and eat more fruit, vegetables, meats, nuts and seeds. Eat until you feel comfortable, don’t eat until your plate is empty if your feeling full.
Eva check this recent post of mine – What Can Make You Gain Weight?
What you eat is 70 – 80% what you will see in the mirror. If you’re serious about losing 30kg’s then you really have to go after it. Losing that much weight will NOT be easy and you need to start sooner rather rather than later. You need 21 days to form a habit, so go do it.
“Can you tell me some high protein foods please?” - Belinda
Belinda try, chicken, turkey, beef, fish, kangaroo, lamb is also great but don’t eat it every day and finally juicy pork. Grab organic if you can to avoid all the hormone crap that gets pumped into most farming animals.
Thanks for reading.
Let me leave you with a quote from the Dalai Lama
“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions”
Have a great weekend.
Yours in health,James Ramage
