Our blog usually addresses dieting (i.e. reducing your “waist”). In honor of earth month and mother earth let’s talk about reducing your waste (“sustainability”). As you read, you may realize that many of the same concepts apply to both dieting and sustainability.
For generations we have been trained to associate “meat” with “protein.” How many of us grew up with steak, chicken or fish as staples on our dinner tables? Advertising agencies have worked hard to reinforce that artificial bond and make beef “what’s for dinner.” But as we begin to search for healthier, alternative diets, diets that will help us lose weight, feed our bodies with good nutrition, and even diets that have less of an environmental impact, many of us have turned to plant-based proteins. Why?
Does the thought of hitting the gym bore you to tears? How many times can you listen to the same playlist and flip through the same old magazines while you pound the treadmill for miles? If you’re like 90% of the people who have resolved to live a better life and exercise more, you’ve failed in the past. Why is that? If your active routine isn’t fun and/or exciting, chances are you won’t stick with it.
How often have you heard that dieting alone isn’t the answer to your weight loss problem? The best way to lose weight is by combining a calorie restrictive diet with moderate amounts of exercise. It makes sense—if you eat less and burn more calories, you will lose weight.
But the term “exercise” scares a lot of people away, and that fear eats at their willpower. Thankfully, a new study shows that you don’t have to hit the gym five days a week to get health and weight loss benefits. In fact, something as simple as walking a little more every day (say three hours per week, which is less than 30 minutes per day) can have a dramatic effect on your health!
We’ve all had a sleepless night now and again. Maybe the new promotion, the big move, or your daughter’s impending graduation kept your mind racing. Maybe that burrito you had for dinner wants to fight. Maybe the neighbors are just too loud. But if your sleeplessness is something more than the occasional restless night, it could be doing irrevocable harm to your mind and body. Chronic insomnia has been linked to all sorts of negative impacts on a person’s health from their mental well being to their waistlines.
Losing unwanted weight can be hard. Breaking bad habits, prioritizing your health, and changing the way you’ve always done things requires commitment, effort, and an inner drive that can be hard to maintain when you don’t see results fast. But when you know the secrets behind how your body and mind work together to influence your waistline, shedding pounds, and burning fat, taking control of your life can be easier. Follow these 5 fitness tips from Pilates expert & fitness professional, Kit Rich, to see results fast!

Why Slowing Down Could Be the Key to Lasting Health and Weight Loss
You may have noticed that fitness trends seem to be pushing us toward more intense and extreme exercises. The popularity of CrossFit and HIIT (high-intensity interval training) have made working out fast-paced, difficult, and perhaps even detrimental to our health. While physical movement is important, you could benefit from a slower, gentler approach.

Have you noticed a fairly rapid weight gain after a certain age or struggled with weight loss for years without seeing any real results? If so, your personal body chemistry might be the culprit. While many people who struggle with excess weight have a history of making bad food choices and limiting their physical activity, a certain percentage of the population may actually suffer from hormonal imbalances that make gaining weight far too easy and losing it next to impossible.
