Jump Start 2011...

Lose weight, eat right, exercise... health related resolutions for the New Year are the most promised and broken. Our Fitness Supervisor, Susan Pelfrey shares some tidbits of knowledge to keep you on the right path towards a healthier YOU in 2011!

  • Increase metabolism through weight training. Train each major muscle group twice a week. Perform 8-10 exercises and 2 sets of 12 repetitions. This will improve your muscle to fat ratio and increase calories burned at rest
  • Hip to waist ratio is a better indicator of heart disease than BMI. Divide your waist measurement into hip measurement. Women should be below .85 and men below 1.0.
  • A healthy diet should include no more than 40 grams of added sugar daily. That is equal to just 6 teaspoons! A 12oz soda contains roughly 8 teaspoons of added sugar!
  • Keep a journal of your exercise and eating habits. Studies show we are 50% more successful of improving lifestyles and losing weight when we write things down.
  • About 70% of overeating is emotional. Food is intended to nourish and fuel our bodies. Learn a new coping skill when you’re stressed, bored or just mad at the world.
