For many people, trying to lose weight is a never-ending battle. Despite much dieting and physical activity, the desired weight loss fails to appear. Sometimes there are even more pounds added to the scale than before the diet. The alternative medical approach, “metabolic typing”, considers the individual metabolic type of each person in order to make a diet more successful. According to that method, every single person has a unique metabolic system with varying needs for nutrients. Therefore, for a healthy weight management, an individual diet must fit to the metabolic type.
Running seems to be so simple: Just put on your shoes and go! But there are a few obstacles waiting on and off the track. Even experienced runners often unnecessarily face health risks or performance setbacks, always trying to achieve a new personal best. Everybody, from beginners to pros, needs to consider some basic rules and guidelines in order to run good times as well as finish healthily and safely.
The barbecue season has started and invites all fans of grilled meat to join. In the right atmosphere, with family or friends, it is more than alluring to enjoy some delicious food. But the things that taste so good on BBQ’s are often mean calorie bombs. Even though the spring was spent with disciplined training and conscious eating to get rid of some extra pounds, the images and scents of juicy steaks, fresh baguettes and tempting sauces get us off the track. Of course, there is no need to miss out on everything, but a lot of the food is not a good and healthy basis for a trained body. With a better understanding of the containing calories, one can easily avoid the biggest calorie traps and maintain a perfect beach body!
The usual method to lose weight is to go on a diet. But once the extra pounds are defeated, it is important to stay ambitious and active. Otherwise it quickly grows again – often even worse than before the diet. Unfortunately, this effect is familiar to many people. Disappointment and frustration are the results. Nevertheless, this does not mean that going on a diet cannot be successful on the long term. There is a simple recipe for achieving one’s weight management goals: more sport!

Apparently there is no time to follow a sportive activity. The right balance between everyday life and sport depends on the inner attitude and a consequent time management.

In order to record the personal performance, a training tool like the Walking Style III by Omron Healthcare is the perfect workout companion.
