Fitness Friday-Articles to Check Out This Week

There's so much information that gets circulated that it's hard to figure out what right and whats wrong or misguided information.  Weight loss is a trillion dollar industry, yet we still have a rising obesity epidemic.  It takes hard work, consistency, and perseverance to lose weight, and no amount of "miracle cure or pill" is going to help when your diet and exercise programs are out of whack.

Speaking of which, the biggest perpetrator of said "miracle pills or fixes" stood before congress and was made an example of.  Science does not back any of his claims or anything he "endorses" and the public eats it up.  Why?  Because he is a doctor...on TV!!!  If these actually worked, would we be having the obesity epidemic we are now?
Diet Scams

Lift heavy!! Lift heavy relative to your strength and your abilities.  There is the perpetual myth that lifting heavy, especially for women will make them bulky and huge and She-hulk.  Couldn't be further from the truth.  Why, in a world where you might need to pick up child that could weigh 25lbs would you only choose to lift 3-5lbs?  Doesn't make sense to me.  Challenge your muscles to get stronger, because your body will thank you for it.

The "perfect diet" is going to be the one that works for you and is healthy.  It is not one made up of strict rules of what you can eat, what you can't eat, what you should only eat at this time or that time.  How about instead you strive to get better at your choices?  Choosing healthier options over crappy ones will lead to better habits, and one day you'll wake up healthier and probably in way better shape.
