  • Why I'm Avoiding Maltodextrin

    18/05/2023 Duração: 24min

    In a journey to try to find something to flavor my water, I came across the ingredient Maltodextrin and found out:It can be used as an insecticideIt hurts your gutCreates a MAMMOTH sugar spike in your bloodIt's made from Corn, which (most of it) is GMOIt increases E coliIt is in EVERYTHING (including my protein powder from GNC or a Vegan protein powder). When I looked at all the ingredients to flavor your water, I wanted something that didn't have any of the following:MaltodextrinHigh Fructose Corn SyrupAspartameI was amazed at how this stuff is just in everything. Why? Because it's CHEAP.Cirkul Flavoring Your Water Your WayThis is an exciting system where you can buy a bottle or just a lid, and you slide this capsule into the top with a flavor packet and pick how much of the flavoring you want (so you decide how much flavor you get).I was drinking an Advocare product with a lot of caffeine that wasn't cheap. So far, one capsule (about $4) lasted me a few days (which is much less than what I w

    Why do we lose the motivation we have on the first day of the year?I'm listening to the book The 6 Habits of Growth on Audible, and it really got me thinking.AMBITIOUS FUTURESWe get excited about the future on January 1st, and we say things like, "This will be the year," and for the next few days, or weeks, and for a few, a few months, we take steps. But eventually, we fall back into old habits.So to figure out what to do, just repeat January 1st.Think positively about your future. Make ambitious goalsKeep the goals in front of youStart off the day in the right directionMonitor your successDAILY ROUTINEStart off your day doing five minutes ot:Reading something positiveMovingREVIEWING YOUR GOALSAnother strategy to stop being overwhelmed is to think of THREE things you need to do today and ONLY focus on those three things.I have been doing this and I am AMAZED at how good doing little things like "Putting my dishes in the dishwasher into the sink" or "Clean the fan today."

  • Who Wants to Do a Monthly Challenge?

    21/11/2022 Duração: 11min

    I took some time off, and now I'm back and ready to play.I've tried weight loss competitions before like Healthy Wage where they lure you in with the chance of earning big bucks. Their goals are long-term, and for me, the money wasn't a great motivator, and with the shortest challenge being six months, I would end up forgetting about it.So I love the community we have for the Logical Losers, and I wanted to combine the community with a challenge. So I've combined the community with a challenge. Here is what I've put togetherA free app that works on Apple or Android phones where we can leave messages for each other via text, audio, video, images, etc.While I found some apps for the weight loss challenge that I liked better it was hard to find one that works on both Apple and Android that was free and allowed me to set the goal.You can sign up at www.monthlychallenge.fitand sign up and join the community.When it comes to weight loss, you have to turn off the voice that brings all the negativ

  • Cubii Review - Safe HIIT

    10/02/2022 Duração: 24min

    Lose weight while you watch TV right? Well, while using a Cubii does burn calories, I see this more as a rehabilitation tool. I would classify at as "better than nothing" so if you're doing nothing, this is not a bad choice. I have been using it while I watch TV, however, if you're watching a movie and you're going to be there a while, for me, my butt got hot, and it became weird. After all, I don't want to push a bunch of butt sweat into my couch (yes I had jeans on, but if you do this enough... well). These are not cheap. I bought my pro version used. As always what is the best exercise? The one you do. WEIGH INPrimarily due to my birthday being yesterday (I'm 57) I am up a pound setting a new record of 237. Ugh. But I'm back to drinking water, getting more sleep and counting calories. I already lost a little. How to do HIIT SafelyI got this by watching a video from Dr. Eric Berg DC.

  • Its Time to Do Something Different - New Year - New Strategy

    30/12/2021 Duração: 38min

    Well, when what you are doing is not working you have to try something new. After hitting a new weight loss high of 236. I knew I had to do something.SIMPLE FASTING APPI am trying a new app at https://simplefastingapp.com which has me documenting what I ate (but not calorie counting). The idea is to put in the data easily, so I can use the app as a mirror and see my bad habits. It's more than a fasting app (even though at its core it is a fasting app).It works as in addition to fasting, they have articles to read, graphics to show you where are you to keep you focused on how the choices are making could be better. When you make better choices you get better results. I've used it for about a week, and it is holding my attention.For me fasting 14 hours is a no-brainer. I no longer snack in the evening. Anything I was eating after 7 PM was not helping my goals.FLEXISPIT SIT2GOI normally sit in a mesh office chair.I saw a product from Flexispot called, The Sit2go has a mesh back, but a wide, well-cushione

I interviewed her back in 2020.She explained these three questions and I wanted to share them with you. 1). What can I eat that is better than what you "typically" eat.

If you do "not so good" it provides exercises for you to get back in shape. I plan on doing this as I realize the older I get the more putting on my shoes feels like an Olympic event. The Halo is $99, and comes with six months of membership.

While I would appreciate a larger number, I am grateful to be going in the right direction.SAY YOUR MEALS OUTLOUDIn the past, I've been in some weird health-related situations. When I said, "OK, I'm in my 50's, I have a tightness in my chest, and I'm having a hard time taking a deep breath" hear those words out loud inspired me to go to the hospital. When you hear yourself say, "I could drink some Huel right now and it will tie me over until dinner, or I can catch some hamburgers in the dive-thru, it can make your choices a little more easy to see (hear) which one is the better choice. You may hear it in your head, but hearing the words come out of your mouth can be more powerful and inspire you to make a better choice. HUEL?Huel is "Human Fuel." It'

  • Tips to Cut Back on Sugar

    31/05/2021 Duração: 26min

    WEIGH INWeigh In: 235.7 (down from from 237)Today we are looking at Sugar. Depending on who you read the recommended amount of Sugar is25g for women38 g for men.According to this video she said the world health recommends 50g or less with a goal of 25 g. (four grams of sugar is 1 teaspoon of sugar).This is not so much the sugar that comes in food, but the sugar that is added.Some associations say 10 g per day. The bottom line is, if you're listening to this podcast my guess is you're getting more sugar than you need (I know I am and in June I'm going to purposely try to cut back).The fun thing about sugar is it has 60 NAMES (WTF?!?!). see http://sugarscience.ucsf.edu/hidden-in-plain-sight/#.YLVHS6hKiUk (right-hand side column)Become a Logical LoserDo you get value out of this podcast?

  • Losing Your Dad Bod

    10/05/2021 Duração: 21min

    Will Smith is going to document losing his "Dad bod" (a big belly) on YouTube. He didn't say how. When I asked uncle Google how to lose a Dad bod here are some tips from the top results:Lose Cardio and Do More Weight TrainingYou can get the benefits of cardio by doing HIIT like a weight lifting circuit trainingGet a Scale that shows weight and body fat. See the resources page. This way you can measure more than one level of fitness.Eat protein and veggies for breakfastDitch the booze and SodaDrink plenty of waterGet plenty of sleepTake Vitamin DInteresting InsightsChili is the ultimate dad bod buster thanks to its mix of vitamins, minerals, protein and, especially, its beans. Think of every bean as a little weight-loss pill. One American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study found that people who ate ¾ cup of beans daily weighed 6.6 pounds less than those who didn't even though the bean eaters consumed, on average, 199 calories more per day.Researchers at the University of Utah monitored the met

  • Resitance Bands Struggles

    26/04/2021 Duração: 25min

    Weigh In I'm sad to report that I'm up 1 lb and I'm at 235.Resistance Bands HurdlesI bought a Hyfit resistance band set. It's high-tech portable, and kind of geeky. It needs a door that opens out. All of the doors on my bedrooms open out (not in). I also noticed that to work all of your muscles you will need to work different muscles you will need to move the location of any door anchors. What I did was bought multiple door anchors and used a closet that I don't need to get into too often. I have one on the top and bottom and one in the middle. If you're new to resistance bands this has a set of bands and the door anchors I mentioned built-in.The last thing I bought was a good old-fashioned door stop. By adding three-door anchors and the doorstop, I think I've got a working system. As always be careful and contact a doctor before doing any exercise. Fit After FiftyI purchased a package from Fit After 50. Seems a little gimmicky, but I'm going to give it a shot

    Vitamin D is a nutrient that your body produces when you are exposed to sunlight. It is also found in food, including fish and eggs.
