Why do people fail to keep weight off after they diet?

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Dear Dr. Mirkin: Why do so many people fail to keep weight off after they diet?

A new study shows that older people who diet without exercising lose huge amounts of muscle. When weight loss was combined with exercise, they did not lose muscle ( Journal of
Applied Physiology. October, 2008). Loss of muscle slows
metabolism even further because larger muscles burn more calories at rest.
In this study, elderly sedentary people were placed in three groups: 1) Diet only, 2) exercise only, 3) diet and exercise.
Those who dieted and exercised for four months lost more fat and less muscle than those who only dieted. Most of the exercisers chose to walk on a treadmill, which is not a very vigorous endeavor.
This also explains why losing weight repeatedly through dieting shortens a person's life span. Many people go on diets and lose weight, quickly regain their lost weight and then go on a diet again. These people then become fatter at the same weight because they have lost so much muscle. Therefore at the same weight, they have fuller fat cells. Full fat cells produce immune stimulant called cytokines that turn on a person's immunity continuously to cause inflammation, which increases risk for cancers, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and other harmful diseases .

Row, Row, Row Your Boat (Or Machine)

Row, Row, Row Your Boat (Or Machine)
The Better Life Experts | September 22, 2008


Rowing is an exercise that is often overlooked as a way to work the whole body aerobically and strengthen upper torso muscles. A rowing machine, rather than a real boat, has many advantages, especially for beginners. Many gyms or health clubs have rowing machines and rowing has the advantage of exercising the whole body with virtually no impact to the skeletal system.

Although rowing is performed in the seated position, it still works both lower and upper body as well as abdominal muscles. A solid rowing workout at a moderate pace can burn about 270 calories in 30 minutes (based upon 160 lb. person). Many rowing machines have the added benefit of showing stroke rate, heart rate, distance, duration and calories burned.

For those of us who recognize the need to exercise but lack motivation or are bored with the usual gym machines, try rowing Ė you just may enjoy it more than you ever imagined.

Better Life Unlimited recommends that you always check with your doctor before beginning new exercise routines if you are currently taking any medications or have been diagnosed with, or are under the care of a physician for any medical reasons.
