“Water Water Everywhere” but people never drink enough

We are often asked about weight loss recommendations our customers as many people struggle with their body image and self esteem. However the most important factors that people rarely focus on is the strain extra weight puts on our internal organs and more importantly our joints. As we get older our joints often get weaker and more won but this does not have to be the case when we begin to understand about the load extra weight puts through our moving structural parts of our anatomy. It is absolutely critical that people with injured or arthritic joints learn how and continue to optimize their weight.

Weight Facts (Excerpt from knee clinic)

“The reason is simple: the average person takes 2 million steps per year with an impact measured at 1 – 5 times their body weight, depending on the height of the step. If you lose as little as 10 pounds, your joint sees up to 50 pounds less force per step, 2 million times per year. Ten pounds adds up to an enormous impact.”

Here are some very simple and effective guidelines for weight loss and optimization. They really work if you follow them and have worked well for people that we have worked with before.

So, how to lose weight? People vary. Schedules vary. Weight loss is extremely difficult for some people and not a big deal for others. The following describes our recommendations to our patients who are often busy executives who travel and cannot control the meals they are served. This works for us. Let us know if this works for you.

Weight Loss Target: 1 pound per week.

1. Drink and finish two tall glasses (16 oz) of tap water before lifting the fork at each meal.

2. Eat whatever you like except desserts.

3. Drink two tall glasses of water before bed.

4. Do not eat between meals.

5. Only drink water as a beverage during the day. (Except when exercising use isotonic fluid replacement drinks or Joint Juice®.

6. Drink a glass of water between any glass of liquor or wine. (So if you empty your scotch glass, next is a glass of water, then another drink.)

7. Exercise one hour each day, seven days a week.

8. Never, ever watch TV or read when exercising. You lose half the benefit of exercise if you are not focusing on your body, heart rate, sweat, and exertion. By feeling the workout, you get the wonderful addictive endorphins from exercise, you understand where your conditioning limits are, and you are able to push through them the next time.

Quite Simply; This program works because the water acts as a portion control device limiting how much you eat by physical satiation rather than mental rules. At first, this can cause frequent urination, but this gradually subsides. The daily exercise builds an addiction, and eventually you feel bad if you miss your exercise. The glass of water between alcoholic drinks reduces your alcohol volume, greatly diminishing the caloric load and lethargy of the next day. Try it for a month.

Lastly, play rather than workout whenever you can. Exercise is supposed to be fun, relaxing, and rejuvenating. Working out somehow sounds like work. Sign up for sports teams, play with friends, and join exercise groups.

Ultimately we find these tips helpful to optimize your weight, your fitness, and your mind for a healthy and satisfying existence.

Many people in our classes are aiming to lose weight and become more lean stronger and flexible. However when recovering from joint injuries and arthritis a personal will begin to fully understand the extensive benefits of Yoga and Tai Chi in strengthening without impact.

    To be able to tighten loose skin after weight loss is tough unless it is done alongside the weight
    loss process. Not exercising these muscles correctly can actually build muscle bulk making your trouble spots worse and more pronounced, totally
    defeating the purpose of exercising in the first place, all while risking
    the possibility of serious injury. The claim is that somehow getting a good massage “breaks up” your adipose tissue (fat)
    making it easier for your body to “flush it out.

    Hi. I see that you don’t update your blog too often. I know that writing
    articles is boring and time consuming. But did you know that there
    is a tool that allows you to create new posts using existing content (from article directories or other
    websites from your niche)? And it does it very well.
    The new articles are unique and pass the copyscape test.
    You should try miftolo’s tools

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is
    added I get four emails with the same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you can remove me from
    that service? Thanks a lot!
