In the Zone

Why is working out so important you ask? The body is meant to be in motion, being sedentary is not our normal state of being and although this is what humanity has created with all the modern gadgets and so called conveniences, we are slowly killing ourselves by falling into the modern trap. Be in the Zone, make it a point to create movement on a daily basis, whether it be a brisk walk in the evening or morning before going to work, or whether you decide to lift weights, do a yoga class, or just go dancing. Make sure to use the stairs instead of the elevator, park your car further away to force in a walk, and if you are in a sitting job get up move around and stretch. By adding movement into your life you will be in The Zone. Loving Thoughts Mark Angelo

Eating for Health

Whenever people want to lose weight, it almost seems as an emergency wake up call of sorts, they want to lose all the weight they gained from a life time, in a minute. The key to permanent weight loss is changing your eating habits, cutting down your portion size and eliminating the junk. Give yourself a long term goal, and start by taking short term steps. When you learn to eat for health and not for quick weight loss vanity, you will reach your goal.

Quick Loss/Quick Gain

if you think you can shave off years of poundage in a few months think again, all you are doing is telling your body you are in starvation mode. It will eat away at your precious muscles and decrease your metabolism, so when you go back to your style of eating, guess what, you will add 3 folds what you lost. The body is only doing what it knows to do best and that is protect you from starvation mode. Diets don't work it is a lifestyle, once you learn that you will reap the rewards of health and looking fabulous.

Digestion how important is it?

Many people are not aware of the importance of proper food combination. Without the proper enzymes your body cannot digest what you eat, this in turn creates problems which leads to fat storage and sickness. Animal Protein places strain on your digestive system, it creates all sorts of issues in your intestines and carries it over into your blood supply. Protein and carbs have two different enzymes which neutralizes each other and the final out come is fermentation. One of the reasons people feel tired all the time is because their bodies are constantly digesting and this in turn prevents your bodies ability to fight disease. Small meals properly combined will not only help you loose weight, it will also keep your metabolism working properly and give you better health. If you have problems digesting it is recommended that you take enzymes to help it along, but remember to eat small amounts in one sitting and to learn the rules of food combining. Your health is in you hands. MarkAngelo

Break Free from old Programing

Sometimes we forget what is most important in life, the old programing tells us that the more material things we collect and the more money we make is what makes us successful and happy. In my travels and interaction with many people around the world, I found that those that lived the simpler life and had freedom away from the corporate machine where the happiest. As a trainer and past owner of a personal training gym, Bodies Under Construction I catered to the wealthy and they were the most unhappiest people I ever met. Money can buy you many things, but it can't buy you health, love and happiness. I find that living with in your means, having time to spend with your family and friends and doing what you enjoy keeps one healthy. Learning how to negate the negative, breathing correctly, exercising and eating the right foods will enhance and add years to your life. Baby steps are needed to accomplish this. Create a life that you can lead, including your eating, exercise and spiritual habits. Take time to breath, take in the good from life and focus less on what you don't like. Visualize the world you want to live in, the body you want to own, and the people you want to surround you. You and only you hold the key to your happiness. Now make everyday a great day, and don't beat yourself up when your feeling down or depressed. Accept it, feel it then let it go.

Much Love to all Mark Angelo

Group virtual Training

If you have a skype account, and a few friends that are willing to go in with you to help you learn how to eat properly, work out efficiently without having to spend hours at a gym and are dealing with emotional issues that are preventing you from reaching your goal, then you are in luck. I will provide virtual guidance via skype for a group of 4 or less twice a week, at a selected time that is good for the group for only $40.00.

Genes or Habits

Many people try to blame their genes on weight gain and appearance. However I find that as an excuse to give up and not try to change how you look or feel.  My father's side of the family have high cholesterol as well as my mom, but the day I decided to change my eating habits, my cholesterol and appearance changed. I use to be an over weight female with many hormonal complications. As soon as I decided to change my lifestyle to a healthier one, my cholesterol dropped as did my weight and all my ailments went away.

We are the masters of our Universe and life and we need to stop blaming others for our life and appearance. Food is meant as fuel, and if your family ate bad most likely you do too. If you take the time to listen to your body and treat yourself with utmost respect you will find great rewards in health and appearance.

Buyer Beware

Okay I know that most people will do anything for quick weight loss, and that includes buying into the diet hype and quick weight loss schemes; and then there are those that will go through drastic measures as in getting their stomachs stables, bypassed and lipo sucked. To understand weight loss one needs to look into the physiology behind it.

Most people don't realize that the reason they are over weight is due to being malnourished because they are eating food without nutrition. Your body is craving real food and will continue to bug you as in always being hungry to fulfill the cellular need for nutrients. Stay away from liquids in a can or a bottle that claim to provide you with vitamins and minerals and fake protein, or claim to help you loose weight.

Eat whole foods that your cells recognize instead of storing it into your fat cells. Increase your metabolism by eating many small meals of real food such as fruits, greens, grains with minimal animal proteins if any. All vegetables, legumes, grains have all the protein you need and will not turn your system into an acidic night mare which in turn will bring on diseases such as osteoporosis, kidney problems, neurological issues and more.

Change the way you eat and exercise and you won't have to worry about a diet ever again.

A new start

changes are not easy, in fact breaking old habits can be very difficult. But if we want to succeed we must strive even if it's all in due time and small steps. Set up short goals to achieve your long term goals.  Keep a journal, practice visualization techniques to help you get there. If you fail, wipe your knees and start over again, do not give, never give up.

Hope everyone has a wonderful 2013.

Much Love
