Why did you start the business?
I have been a multi-sport athlete since my childhood, so growing up I had been always physically active. However, with my life changes in school, family and work, I was once struggling with sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits like so many people. I finally got myself back together in good shape. In my journey, I found my passion in fitness training, nutrition education, and helping people discover their powerful body and mind. To get fit and stay in really good shape, particularly after 40, you have to have healthy habit and mindset, be 100% in your diet and 100% in your workout. It is my mission to make a difference in people’s lives by enhancing the quality of their lives through fitness training, wellness & lifestyle coaching, and education. I’m specialized in helping busy working professionals, business owners and parents who want safe, effective workouts with maximum results in minimum time.


If you could do it again, what would you do differently?

If I could do it again, I would have enrolled in a business coaching and mastermind program that could have saved me time.

What's the best business advice you have ever received?
Do what you love. Love what you do.


What personality trait helps you the most?

Indomitable spirit, perseverance, and self-discipline through martial arts and sports training help me the most to get through the ups and downs in personal life and business.


What's the hardest part of the job?

The hardest part of the job as a personal trainer and fitness coach is to help people understand that they’re worthy of everything by investing in their body, their health, and the ultimate benefits of joy, happiness and life satisfaction. Just visualize the self-confidence, looking good and feeling great after losing weight, getting in shape and living a healthy lifestyle. Invest now. Don’t pay for it later!


The easiest?

The easiest part of my job is to develop customized training program and workout routines for my clients. This is the part I love to do and am the best.


What's your least expensive product or service?

The least expensive product (and it's free) is my introductory 5-Part "Jump Start Your Body!" e-Course on muscle building, fat loss, nutrition & recipes, training strategies, core conditioning. You can download the free course by visiting my website. If you feel I’m the right trainer and coach you want to work with, simply go to my website to request a complimentary fitness consultation and discuss how I can bring values and benefits to help you transform your body, and change your life to a whole new YOU!


The most expensive?

The most expensive yet the most effective program is the "Shake Those Pounds" Intensive that consists of my signature 6-Step Dream Body BlueprintTM body transformation system, private one-on-one personal training, accountability coaching, kitchen makeover, grocery shopping tour, and shadow living. I only two clients in this program at any given time.


Describe your most unusual customer, job or work experience.
I have many baby boomer clients who want to lose weight, get in good shape and improve their health. An 60-year-old client starts kickboxing (a modified version) as part of her training program and is loving it! She feels like 50 or 45. Age is just a number as she quotes herself.


When you leave the business, what will you do?
Health and fitness is a lifelong journey. It’s true for me personally and for fitness business in helping people transform their body and improve their fitness. I would never leave the fitness and helping-people business. In fact, I'm raising capital to build my own Integrated Fitness and Wellness Center through real estate investment.

In one sentence, tell us why customers should use your services.
I have strong desire, passion, knowledge, and expertise to help people improve their health, fitness and quality of life. I’m specialized in helping busy working professionals, business owners and parents who want safe, effective workouts with maximum results in minimum time.

Do you have any new program or service coming up for the community?
I will be teaching a series of fitness training and nutrition topics in Morris Hills Adult Education program next Spring. I'm also gearing up for Spring Fitness Bootcamp class.

Jump Start Your New Year's Resolutions by Taming Holiday Bulge

This is the time of the season again when people are stressed out with holiday shopping. The economic downtime (albeit on the way of recovering) has added salt to the wound - pushing many people out of jobs.

One of the biggest traps for people wanting to lose weight is to use foods as a way of comforting themselves or soothing their stress and anxiety and make them feel good.

Many people eat even when they are physically hungry. When eating food is nothing to do with fulfilling basic survival needs and fueling your body, it becomes emotional eating - from stress, boredom, anxiety, frustation, loneliness, sadness, etc.

Holidays, parties, social functions, weather are all triggers to binge eating or emotional eating. If you feel guility after eating, that's unhealthy eating behavior. You should feel satisfied after eating for physical hungry.

On the New Year's Eve, almost everyone is reflecting the past year and looking forward to the coming year. The New Year's resolutions seem to become cliche. Many people stop making them since one-third of them quit in the first month. Half of them will be gone after six months.

Starting a new page for the New Year requires letting go of some of the bad habits and beliefs that didn't serve you.  Here are the top 7 holiday diet traps and some strategies to beat them before making a clean start for your New Year's resolutions.
  1. Dinner buffet and cocktail party. The social and family gatherings are inevitable. We're in the world of abundance - plenty of food selections and feasts. No wonder two-third of Americans are either overweight or obese. To avoid social overeating and binge, you can eat a light meal or snack packed with lean protein and fiber about one to two hours before the event. When you're not that hungry, you're  less likely to make poor unhealthy choices.
  2. Eat while you cook. Have you been wondering why it's rare to see a fit chef? When you cook, you're likely to taste a little here and there. These calories do add up. You can try to chew mint-flavored gum to keep your mouth busy. You can try to sniff peppermint oil. It helps depress appetite by stimulating the area of the brain to make you feel full. So you'll eat less even you do.
  3. Eat everything on the table. This is the one you want to be picky eater. Before you sit down to chow, "survey" the foods to be served including drinks, appetiziers, entries, deserts, etc. Instead of eating everything, choose a few (hopefully balanced out with good carb, vegetables, lean protein and essential fats) that you really like and enjoy them. Leave some room (discretionary calories) for special dishes that you can only have during the holidays.
  4. Portion, portion, portion! This is a no-brainer. But most people are still side-tracked or put themselves in situations that they don't have control. If you use a smaller plate or bowl, you'll fill up less amount of food at every meal. It will help you eat less (or the right amount). Pay attention to the recommended porition size. For example, one serving of rice is half a cup; not a full cup. That's 100 calorie difference!
  5. Mindless eating. Notice that how much more you eat when you watch TV, read magazine or listen to a CD or tape than eating alone or in silence? When your mind is busy with something else while eating, you don't fully savor the taste and tend to overeat. So start practicing 'mindful' eating.
  6. Winter domance or hibernation. The bitterly cold weather in winter makes many people become dormant or go into hibernation. They don't move much at all and certainly are less likely to burn enough calories to maintain their weight. Stay active. Do short 10 to 15 minutes of exercises using bodyweight or simple free weights at home even if you can't go to gym.
  7. Lack of quality sleep and rest. We're already a sleep-deprived nation. The hustle and bustle over the holidays just make it worse for many people to get enough 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep. When you sleep less than 5 hours, your body produces lower level of leptin, a hormone that controls how full you feel. You also have higher level of ghrelin that stimulate appetite. In the end, you tend to eat more and gain weight.
It's your decision now to release the old bad habits and make room for the new healthy positive changes.

My best wishes for the New Year!

A New Healthier YOU for the New Year

Whether it's a resolution you set for January 1, or a goal you start mid-year to reach, you can make the next year of your life a healthier one.

The first step is to take a look at what your nutrition and exercise habits have been like for the last 12 months.

Think about questions like these and write down your answers in a notebook so that you can look back at them again a year from now:

  • How does your weight compare with a year ago?
  • Do you feel healthy and have a lot of energy or are you tired all the time?
  • Do you take vitamins or other nutritional supplements?
  • Do you eat at home most of the time? If so, what types of foods? Whole fresh foods, boxed foods or TV dinners?
  • If you eat in a restaurant, what types of restaurants do you go to and what types of foods do you choose?
  • How physically active are you? Do you exercise regularly?
  • Do you eat healthy size portions, or do you stuff yourself with every meal?
  • Do you smoke?
  • How much alcohol do you drink each week?
It's important to take an honest look at your health habits in order to set goals for your health and diet.

The next step is to set goals.

  • Do you want to lose weight?
  • Do you want to be able to run up and down your stairway without becoming winded?
  • Do you want to reduce cholesterol or lower your blood pressure?

Decide what you really want to achieve for your health and diet over the next month and over the next year.

One good goal for your first month could be to resolve to take your lunch to work four days per week for each week this month instead of eating lunch in restaurants every day.

Another example of a monthly goal would be to resolve to walk for 30 minutes four days per week each week this month.

The next step is to determine your nutritional needs. Here just some ideas you might want to consider:

  • How many calories do you need to eat each day to reach your weight gain or weight loss goal?
  • How do your eating patterns fit your lifestyle?
  • Do you feel better with three large meals per day or five smaller meals per day?
  • Will you continue to eat in restaurants often?
  • What types of fruits and vegetables do you like?
A healthy diet should give you five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day, 25 grams of fiber per day, five or six ounces of protein per day and a small amount of omega-3 essential fatty acids each day.

To stick with your new diet, you'll want to include foods you enjoy. If you love hamburgers, that's OK. Make them at home with whole grain rolls and cut down the size of the hamburger patty, or use ground turkey. Add lots of lettuce, onion, and tomato. Add a salad instead of fries.

Learn which foods you can substitute for the unhealthy foods you've been eating. Here are some ideas:

  • Choose crunchy raw green beans instead of chips and serve them with a little of your favorite dip.
  • Replace high fat hots with soy dogs.
  • Choose whole grain breads and pasta instead of white bread and white pasta.
  • Skip the sugary desserts and have a small dish of fresh berries with a dab of whipped cream or non-fat whipped topping...add a sprinkling of walnuts on top.
  • Use lemon juice instead of salad dressing.
  • Choose low fat ground turkey instead of high fat ground beef.
  • When you shop for healthy foods, use a shopping list and stay away from the snack food aisles and the prepackaged foods aisles as much as possible.
  • Choose fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads, lean meats, fish and legumes. Avoid foods high in saturated fats, sodium, trans fats and sugar.
  • Cooking methods are also important for healthy nutrition. Sautéing is better than deep-frying your foods. Frying foods adds fats and calories and doesn't add any nutrition.
  • Steam your vegetables instead of boiling them to mush. Steaming will preserve more of the vitamins found in the vegetables. When you cook your healthy meals at home, be sure to make a little bit extra to save as leftovers to take to work or school as a healthy lunch the next day.

The next step to a healthier new you is getting enough exercise.

If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, you need to get out and get moving. Walking, running, aerobic exercise and weight lifting are all great options. Working with a qualified fitness professional is the best and safest way to get started and stick with a regular exercise program.

Getting started and staying on road to a healhier new you is not so easy. Many of us will hit road-blocks due to busy schedules, loss of motivation and weight loss plateaus.

I hope that I give you enough tips, ideas and motivation for you get started. But I don't want to leave you alone. Join me in the next New Year Resolution Start-Fast-Finish-Strong Challenge. Check out the group program, 100 Day Challenge and your personal strategic plan by visiting http://bit.ly/buTskW .

Wish you a Merry Fitness and Happy New Year!

Review of Strength Training Over 50 Fitness Program

People are living longer than ever before, and the single most important aspect of quality living after age 50 entails maintaining optimal health. Strength training exercises are an important part of every comprehensive health equation, and Strength Training for Seniors focuses on the health needs of men and women over-fifty. Its opening chapters specify separate preparatory exercises for lower body and upper body strengthening, then proceed to instruct in the following foundational exercises—


For lower body strength: the basic squat, squats with a stability ball, one-legged squats, the wide plié or goddess pose, the door squat, and the cross-over stretch

For upper body strength: wall or counter push-ups, knee push-ups, straight-legged push-ups, and the supine chest stretch

Chapters that follow focus on putting it all together, with exercises for the gluteals, the hamstrings, the quadriceps, the adductors, and the abductors, as well as the calves, shins, chest, upper back, biceps, triceps, lower back, and abdominals. The book’s concluding describe recommended cooling-down routines, and then discuss special concerns that include regimens for osteoarthritis sufferers, as well as modification of exercise plans to suit the extremely unfit or for those of advanced old age. Detailed illustrations and diagrams accompany all exercise procedures.

Study Shows Postivie Benefits for Breast Cancer Survivors by Lifting Weight

A new study published shows that weight lifting can benefit breast cancer survivors in many different ways.




In fact, the study found that lifting weights under supervision may lower women’s chances of developing lymphedema, according to results that will be published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Lymphedema is a painful and potentially debilitating swelling of the limbs that occurs when lymph fluid cannot drain from lymph nodes as it does in healthy people.



Breast cancer survivors are often told to avoid lifting children, heavy bags or substantial weight with the arm on the side of their body from which armpit-area lymph nodes were removed. Doctors feared any stress to the arm could trigger lymphedema.



But Katheryn H. Schmitz, an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, and other researchers wondered if this advice left women with weakened arms and, ironically, at greater risk for lymphedema when they were not able to avoid lifting a weight.



Schmitz and colleagues followed 154 female cancer patients who had at least two lymph nodes removed in the past five years. Half of the women were randomly chosen to participate in a 13-week supervised weight-lifting program. The other half were not enrolled in the exercise program.



A year later, 11 percent of the women in the weight-lifting group developed lymphedema, compared with 17 percent of the women in the no-exercise group.



Lifting weights, under the watch of a trained supervisor, can lower breast cancer patients risk of lymphedema.

Baby Boomers Now Can Exercise Safely, Build Strength and Prevent Injuries with Denville Senior Fitness Expert and Personal Trainer

Denville Personal Trainer Carey Yang designs a BoomerFitandTone™ training program to help baby boomers exercise safely and effectively, build total body strength and conditioning, and improve balance and prevent injuries.


DENVILLE, NJ -- December 6, 2010 -- Aging baby boomers now can learn from the best personal trainer and fitness expert on how to exercise safely, improve cardiovascular conditioning, build muscular strength and endurance, improve balance and flexibility, and prevent injuries through the BoomerFitandTone™ total body conditioning program.


“BoomerFitandTone™ is a total body conditioning Senior Fitness program borne of my years of training baby boomer clients to meet their ever changing needs and demands,” says Carey Yang, a certified personal trainer, fitness expert and the owner of Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC based in Denville, New Jersey.

Americans are growing older and living longer. By the year 2030, approximately 21 percent (or 70 million Americans) will be over 65 years of age. As baby boomers start to reach retirement age, they are looking for ways to extend their longevity, rejuvenate their youth and improve their quality of life. Senior fitness is a growing new trend.

“Exercise in senior fitness is an important factor in preventing or at least slowing down many age-related declines in physical functions and performance,” Yang says. “In addition to losing weight and eating healthy, aging baby boomers are concerned about cardiovascular conditioning, muscular and bone strength, flexibility and balance.”


All these factors need to be taken into consideration altogether to help baby boomers improve overall health and senior fitness. Many baby boomers have pre-existing medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Medications may limit their exercise capacity. “It’s prudent for baby boomers to train with a fitness professional who understands their needs and has experience in developing an exercise program just for them,” says Yang.

“I have many baby boomer clients who enjoy modified kickboxing. They’re loving it! They feel powerful, strong and younger. They absolutely enjoy the workout without feeling that they are exercising,” Yang says. “This is the best gift I can give them.”

Yang advocates lifelong fitness and health. He offers a few tips for baby boomers to start an exercise program.

1. Consult an orthopaedic surgeon or sports medicine specialist if you have any prior sports or orthopaedic injuries.

2. Always warm up and stretch before any physical activity.

3. Train with a qualified fitness professional, at least in the beginning, to guide

4. Invest in good equipment and proper shoes.

5. Start slow and progress steadily.

6. Listen to your body.

Why Choose Young Living Essential Oils?

90% of essential oils sold in North America are Grade B or lower (perfume-grade) oils. They only contain 5-10% essential oils and the rest is chemical solvents, synthetic, and other toxins. These oils could irritate your skin and cause other health problems.

Young Living Essential Oils are pure, 100% Therapeutic-Grade (Grade A) Essential Oils. They enhance health and well-being without burdening your body with more chemicals and toxins. It’s a great investment for your long-term health.

Review of The Holy Grail Body Transformation System

They Told You It Was Impossible To Gain Muscle And Lose Fat At The Same Time...


They Were Wrong!

New Breakthrough In "Cyclical Dieting" And "Nutrient Timing" Flips Your Metabolic and Hormonal Switches, Allowing You To Burn Fat and Build Muscle At The Same Time, Without Dangerous Drugs...

Even If You Don't Have Fitness Model Genetics

Tom Venuto, Best-Selling Author And Body Transformation Expert, is releasing his next program called:

'The Holy Grail Body Tranfomration Program:
How to Gain Mcle and Lose Fat at the Same time"

In his new Holy Grail Body Transformation program, Tom will share his 20 plus years of experience in bodybulding, personal training, fitness coaching and research.

Tom's fat burning programs have helped dozens of men and women lose over 100 pounds, and up to as much as 256 pounds. Why then, did I show you the success stories above instead of 100+ pound massive weight loss stories?

There are 3 major reasons:

1. I wanted you to see real-world proof that it IS possible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time...

2. I wanted you to realize the difference between weight loss and fat loss...

3. I wanted you to finally give up the notion that weight loss is the only goal that matters.

You may have a lot of weight to lose (body fat), but weight loss is not all there is to a body transformation.

Many people are not seriously overweight, but they are seriously unhappy because their body is soft and flabby without tone and firmness. Fat loss with muscle gain is exactly what these people need.

You've probably been told for years that it's impossible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, but that's a load of bull! If you couldn't achieve this elusive goal in the past, it's simply because you didn't have the right nutritional strategies.

The best part is, once you understand how to use these techniques for simultaneous fat loss and muscle gain, you can also use them if your goal is strictly fat loss. How?

The Holy Grail Body Tranfomration Program




This is a new type of body transformation system that has just been published for the first time in digital format (e-book and MP3 audio), so you can download the program instantly, read or listen to it in an afternoon and get started the same day.

But before you download the program or even read another word, I have to warn you. This not an easy goal to achieve and I have no miracles to offer you inside this new book. This is a serious and very strategic program for committed people who are analytical thinkers and hard workers.

Concurrent muscle gain and fat loss is the most difficult goal to achieve. That's why people call it the "Holy Grail"; because it's so elusive. But...

MAKE NO MISTAKE: IT IS POSSIBLE
TO GAIN MUSCLE AND LOSE FAT AT THE SAME TIME.

Losing fat is a frustrating challenge for millions of overweight people. Building muscle is downright HARD to do as well, and thousands of bodybuilders and athletes struggle for years to make gains. Doing BOTH at the same time is near impossible unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing.

HOLY GRAIL is the type of strategic program that you NEVER discover casually on your own. It's the result of meticulous scientific investigation combined with years of experimentation, testing and tweaking. If you get lucky and "accidentally" gain muscle while losing fat, you'll have no clue how you did it, which means you won't be able to do it again and you won't be able to explain how you did it to others.

If you want the shortest, fastest, straightest path to muscle building and fat burning success, you need a guide...a plan, a roadmap... and the Holy Grail e-book is it.

If you're serious about physique transformation, then grabbing a copy of The Holy Grail Body Transformation system is a no brainer decision.

Tom is sweetening the deal with loads of bonus and gifts.

America's Obesity Rate Continues to Grow - 3 in 4 Overweight by 2010

According to a new study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation, three out of four Americans will be overweight or obese by 2020, and disease rates and health care spending will balloon, unless governments, individuals and industry cooperate on a comprehensive strategy to combat the epidemic.
Read the news from Chicago Tribune.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/health/sns-ap-eu-oecd-getting-fatter,0,6072194.story

The projection seems in line with those made by some American researchers. About 86 percent of U.S. adults would be overweight or obese by 2030 if current trends continue, according to a study led by a Johns Hopkins University researcher and published in 2008 in the journal Obesity.
The lifespan of an obese person is up to 8-10 years shorter than that of a normal-weight person, the OECD said, the same loss of lifespan incurred by smoking.

The Best 5 Cancer Prevention Foods Recommended by Dr. Oz

Certain foods, eaten in the correct portions and frequency, can provide cancer-starving benefits. Below are 5 foods to eat that can prevent cancer growth:




Bok Choy This type of Chinese cabbage contains brassinin; a powerful cancer-fighter, also found in broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Bok Choy should be eaten 3 times a week, in 1/2 cup servings to obtain its full benefits.

Cooked Tomatoes have more cancer-fighting properties than raw tomatoes. Both contain the molecule lycopene, but heating the tomato changes its chemical structure and makes the benefits more readily available to your body. You should eat 2-3 (1/2 cup) servings of cooked tomatoes a week.

Flounder This fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and low in mercury. Three 6-ounce servings a week is ideal.

Strawberries The antioxidants in this berry help fight cancers. You should eat 1 cup a day, including the juice.

Artichokes contain 3 different cancer-fighting molecules. Enjoy ¼ cup of hearts per day.

Muscle Building Workout Routine for Chest and Triceps

It's a great combination to work on your chest and triceps.

Here is a workout routine:

Trisets (4 sets)
- Flat bench Dumbbell Flye @ 30/30# x 12 reps
- Flat bench Dumbbell Triceps extention @ 30/30# x 12 reps
- 1-Dumbbell Overhead Triceps press @ 60# x 12 reps

Straight Set (5 sets)
- Smith Incline Chest Press @ 175# x 6 reps
Finisher @ 135# x 12 reps

Top 9 Secrets to Releasing Your Stubborn Belly Fat

1) Go Spicy. Red peppers, the spicy ingredient in Mexican and Indian dishes contains Capsaicin which can increase the metabolic rate by effecting the Sympathetic Branch of the Nervous system. Spiking your chicken dishes with red peppers might be a small benefit or you can gulp 5 to 10 encapsulated grams of Capsaicin from your local health food store. (Journal of Nutrition 116:1272-1278, 1986.)

2) Don’t Be Cardio Crazy! Radically reducing calories slows the metabolism short circuiting fat loss. Same is true with radical caloric expenditure. You know: 2 cardio sessions a day. Excess cardio slows the metabolism, promotes a loss in muscle and even can lower testosterone levels. For real results, stick to 4-6 sessions a week, 30 – 45 minutes at a clip and maintain a high level of intensity.

3) Separate Cardio From Weight Training. What happens when you do cardio first and follow it up with weight training – you don’t build as much muscle density. How bout cardio after training? You risk overtraining and the negative hormonal milieu that can stifle the metabolic rate. The best scenario; hit the cardio in the morning – on an empty stomach – get in a few meals and return to the gym later in the day to build muscle density.

4) Serotonin Control. Serotonin is a brain chemical that helps controls hunger. Guess what? It can take a nose dive with dieting. ( R.J. Wurtman and J.J. Wurtman, “Brain serotonin, carbohydrate-craving, obesity, and depression.” Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology 398 (1996): 35-41.) One way to prevent a drop; smaller, more frequent meals.

5) Garlic Chicken! Mother earth’s flavor enhancer stimulates adrenaline and uncoupling proteins (UCP). Adrenaline triggers fat breakdown and UCP, located in metabolically active “brown fat” increase calorie burning. Garlic also controls cortisol levels which can supports muscle retention while dieting. For best results use fresh raw garlic in your salads or on your other meals, but if you can't handle raw garlic then use fresh bulbs in you cooking or give supplements a try. (Oi Y, et al., Allyl-containing sulfides in garlic increase uncoupling protein content in brown adipose tissue, and noradenaline and adrenaline secretion in rats. J Nutr 129:336-342,1999.) (Wang HX, Et al., Natural products with hypoglycemic, hypotensive, hypocholesterolemic, antiatherosclerotic and antithrombotic activities. Life Sci 65:2663-2677,1999.)

6) Sip Green Tea. Green tea contains caffeine and polyphenols called epilgallocatechin gallate which have been shown to increase calorie burning. These special calorie burning compounds help burn an extra 100 or-so calories a day about that equal to a brisk walk. In maximizing fat loss, every calorie counts. (Dullo, A.G., et al., Efficiency of a green tea extract rich in catechin polyphenols and caffeine in increasing 24-h energy expenditure and fat oxidation in humans. Am J Clin Nutr, 1999. 70(6):p.1040-5.)

7) Fat? Yes Fat! To rip up, you have to eat fewer carbs, but on occasion – say once a week - you can add a little healthy fat, 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, some red meat, walnuts or cashews. The reason? Dietary fat can make the body more effective in using and burning fat – as long as calories and carbs remain under control. (Thomas CD et al. Nutrient Balance and Energy Expenditure During the Ad Libitum Feeding of High Fat and High Carbohydrate Diets in Humans. Am J Clin Nutr 1992;55:934)

8) Thyroid Support. Irony of Ironies. When you eat less and try to dump body fat, a lot of times the metabolism adapts and burns quite a bit fewer calories. One way to get a round the slowdown is with phosphates. A combo of 537 mgs of calcium phosphate, 107 mgs of potassium phosphate and 25 mgs of sodium phosphate given to strict dieters yielded a 12-19% more elevated metabolism than dieters who did not use phosphates.

9) Write It Down. This one seems simple, but it’s one of the most overlooked tips in shedding fat. Dieters who record what they eat, meal by meal, day by day, not only make better choices, but cheat less and eat fewer total calories. Writing it down “keeps you honest” and is a tool for reminding you that getting lean is a day by day process.

Cancer Prevention Diet Tip: Focus on Plant-based Foods

The best diet for preventing or fighting cancer is a predominantly plant-based diet that includes a variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. A plant-based diet means eating mostly foods that come from plants: vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, and beans.
The less processed these foods are—the less they’ve been cooked, peeled, mixed with other ingredients, stripped of their nutrients, or otherwise altered from the way they came out of the ground—the better.

There are many ways to add plant-based foods to your diet. A nice visual reminder is to aim for a plate of food that is filled at least two-thirds with whole grains, vegetables, beans, or fruit. Dairy products, fish, and meat should take up no more than a third of the plate. Keep in mind that you don’t need to go completely vegetarian. Instead, focus on adding “whole” foods, which are foods close to their original form. Just as important, try to minimize or reduce the amount of processed foods you eat. Eat an apple instead of drinking a glass of apple juice, for example. Or enjoy a bowl of oatmeal with raisins instead of an oatmeal raisin cookie.

Simple tips for getting more plant-based foods in your diet

Breakfast: Add fruit and a few seeds or nuts to your whole grain breakfast cereal (oatmeal!).

Lunch: Eat a big salad filled with your favorite beans and peas or other combo of veggies. Always order lettuce and tomato (plus any other veggies you can!) on your sandwiches. Order whole grain bread for your sandwiches. Have a side of veggies like cut up carrots, sauerkraut or a piece of fruit.

Snacks: fresh fruit and vegetables. Grab an apple or banana on your way out the door. Raw veggies such as carrots, celery, cucumbers, jicama, peppers, etc. are great with a low-fat dip such as hummus. Keep trail mix made with nuts, seeds and a little dried fruit on hand.

Dinner: Add fresh or frozen veggies to your favorite pasta sauce or rice dish. Top a baked potato with broccoli and yogurt, sautéed veggies, or with salsa. Replace creamy pasta sauces, with sautéed vegetables or tomato sauce made with healthy olive oil.

Dessert: Choose fruit instead of a richer dessert. Or a single square of dark chocolate.

Buy organic or local produce, if possible.

Some pesticides found in commercially-grown produce are also suspected carcinogens. Organic foods are free of these pesticides, and locally grown produce is less likely to have been treated with chemicals to prevent spoilage.

Program Review Rapid Fat Loss to Get Ripped Six Pack Abs

Master Trainer Blows The Lid Off
The Fat Loss Industry And Reveals



The Shocking Reasons Why Most



People Can’t Lose That Last



10-20 lbs Of Ugly Belly Fat…



And How YOU Can Lose Yours With

Ease And Finally Unveil Your Six Pack!





By John Alvino – Fat Loss Expert , Master Trainer & Strength and Conditioning Coach



Performing Ab Exercises Such as Crunches, Sit-ups and Leg Raises. These are among the LEAST effective exercises for getting six pack abs. In fact, most traditional abdominal exercises do your abs more harm than good.



In just a second, I'll share with you what types of exercises REALLY work to sculpt your midsection.



Eating “Health” Foods. Everywhere you look, the diet food industry has literally stocked the shelves with their “low-carb” and “low-fat” diet foods. But these so-called “health foods” are actually nothing more than cleverly marketed junk foods.



Many of these supposedly healthy foods actually CAUSE your body to gain even more belly fat…but the industry won’t tell you that fact. Instead, they will continue to lie to you so they can make millions at your expense.



Doing Cardio Routines. Cardio is definitely NOT the best way to lose belly fat and reveal your six pack abs. Most people who make this mistake end up hitting plateaus they can never overcome. Below, I'll show you totally unique workouts that will burn 300% more fat than any cardio workout ever could!



Dieting. That’s right, you heard me! The truth is, 95% of all dieters fail in the long run. If people really knew how to eat properly to lose fat, we would all look great, and diets would cease to exist completely. In just a moment, I'll show you the nutritional key to effortlessly losing even the most stubborn belly fat.



Using Traditional Weight Training Programs. Contrary to what most trainers recommend, the majority of weight training exercises do nothing to burn belly fat and sculpt out a six pack. That’s why so many weight-lifters have big muscles and a big belly to go with them!



If you really want a fit and trim midsection, read on to learn dozens of unique and effective exercises that will sculpt your abs and your entire body in ways that traditional weight training never could.



Now You Know What Doesn't Work. On The Next Page,

I'll Show You What DOES Work For Losing Stubborn

Belly Fat And Getting A Sculpted Midsection.

Morris County Personal Trainer Carey Yang Advocates Parent Participation to Fight Childhood Obesity

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Jersey Fitness Expert and certified personal trainer Carey Yang urges parents and family participation to fight increasing adult and childhood obesity rates.

DENVILLE, NJ — August 23, 2010 — America’s unstoppable obesity rates would account for more than $860 billion healthcare cost by 2030. “This is an alarmingly tough uptrend to fight againist,” says Carey Yang, a Certified Personal Trainer, fitness expert and president of Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC based in Denville, New Jeresy.

According to a recent report, Americans are continuing to get fatter and fatter, with obesity rates reaching 30 percent or more in nine states last year, as opposed to only three states in 2007.

“This is a trend reversal from a study release earlier this year that, obesity rates have remained constant for at least five years among men and for closer to 10 years among women and children,” Yang says.

Yang says, we have so many government agencies, non-profit organizations, communities and schools involved to fight both adult and childhood obesity with a variety of programs. Even the First Lady Michelle Obama early this year launched a campaign to fight childhood obesity by improving childhood nutrition and physical activity.

“Nutrition and exercise start from home. Parents hold the key to educating their children,” Yang says. “Parents should be good role models for their children. If your children see you slouch in front of the tube and dig into a bag of chips along with a bottle of beer, it’s hard to resist the same lifestyle. Chunky Mom, plus chunky Dad, often equals chunky kids and pets.”

Yang advocates parents and family involvements in fighting against obesity. Health and fitness is truly a family matter. He offers a few solutions to promoting active lifestyle and making healthy choices.

1. Be a positive role model. Parents have to set a good example for themselves and for their children such as regular exercise, being active and eating a healthy balanced die.

2. Set family time to prepare meals and exercise together. Research shows that families eating and exercising together also stay closer.

3. Assign household chores. Children can learn the value of responsibility by sharing active household chores while increasing physical activity.

4. Limit sedentary activities. Watching TV and playing electronic games have taken so much time and opportunity out of moving around and exercising. Studies have shown that reducing TV time is associated with reductions in body weight and body fat.

It’s a day-to-day process and a series of repeated small steps that add up to awesome health habits. “Every time you choose the vegetables over the chips, a walk over a drive, and an active game over T.V., you’ve just made another donation to yourself and to your families lifetime health and fitness fund,” Yang says.

Is Raw Food Diet Good for Losing Weight?

Obesity has taken the shape of an epidemic in the modern world. More and more people are falling prey to obesity due to an unhealthy lifestyle and bad food habits. But obesity can have disastrous effects on a person’s health.




Weight gain doesn’t necessarily come because of the number of calories you eat. It is what type of calories you eat. When you eat foods that are highly processed they cause digestive disorders which cause you to gain weight.



A raw food diet has proven to be of great aid in this regard after people following different variations of the diet have claimed drastic weight loss in a relatively short period of time, and without feeling hungry or miserable like you would with most diets. There is an ample amount of truth to this claim as the diet practitioners have proven that the raw food diet truly helps in losing weight quickly and effectively.



Going on a Raw Food Diet will help your body to cleanse itself of all the junk that has been piling up in your organs, intestines and of course your fat cells. Due to the nature of the digestive and cleansing enzymes in the food itself, the more you eat the more cleansing occurs. There is no need to worry about consuming too many calories because they will not get stored as fat.



Some medical experts see great benefits in the raw food diet. In addition to enabling weight loss, the diet can ostensibly increase one’s metabolism, making calorie burning easier. Some medical experts have also suggested that a raw food diet is a good antidote to eating disorders. In addition, it can help make your immune system stronger, and help the body rid itself of harmful toxins.



Starting a Raw Food Diet is fairly simple. Some of the best raw foods you can eat are obviously fruits and vegetables, but there are others such as seeds, nuts, grains, beans and sprouts. If you are trying to lose weight fast, you will want to know about some of the raw foods that have the best fat and calorie burning properties.



For fruits, these include apples, grapefruits, mangos, pears, peaches, lemons and cherries. These vegetables are great for a midmorning or mid afternoon snack to stave off those hunger attacks.



For vegetables, artichokes, brussel sprout, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, cucumber, red pepper, mushrooms and cabbage are all great foods to help promote fat and calorie burning. As far as herbs, garlic and parsley leaf are great additions to your raw foods to add additional flavor. This is one of the best natural weight loss.



If you decide a raw food diet is for you, you might consider supplements to compensate for the nutrients this diet is lacking. Some supplements to consider include vitamin B12, copper, zinc, and chromium.



Another thing to consider when taking up a raw food diet is that most of the fruits and vegetables that you see in your supermarket are loaded with pesticides. Therefore, it might be best to consume only organic raw food.

Morris County Fitness Expert Carey Yang Interviewed in Suburban Trends on Exercise Benefits of Gardening

Gardening is one of the most popular past-time hobbies in the world. It helps spruce up your home or property. Some people plant their own fruits and vegetables. Gardening has many health benefits for your body and mind.

I was recently interviewed and quoted in Suburban Trends on “Mend your body & mind in the garden”.

Here is a full write-up by the correspondent KARA ROMANSKI.

WEST MILFORD — In addition to the beauty it brings to your own space as well as the entire neighborhood, gardening has many health benefits that can help you nurture and strengthen the mind and body—along with those perennials and peas. And, you do not need a green thumb to reap the rewards of this growing past-time in our communities of combining gardening with exercise.

Exercise benefits

Along with biking five miles in 30 minutes and walking for two miles, The National Institute of Health lists gardening for 30 to 45 minutes as one of its recommended activities for moderate levels of exercise to combat obesity.

Gardening contributes to physical health since activities, such as pulling weeds, digging holes, planting flowers and plants, are all part of three important types of physical activity: endurance, flexibility and strength. Gardening is included with other moderate exercise that can help burn calories and lose weight. You just have to be active for at least 30 minutes to enjoy the physical benefits.

Karen Gureasko, of Denville, a former freelance garden designer has always had a garden.

“I like gardening because you set a short-term goal and get immediate results,” said Gureasko. “There’s a great deal of stretching and weight bearing exercises that you do at your own pace.”

Weight bearing exercises, such as lifting bags of top soil and mulch, pushing wheelbarrows and shoveling, and raking help enhance bone growth and stop bone loss. And, anytime you hold on to handles or tools, you’re working on your forearm and biceps.

“If you choose gardening as an exercise, just be sure to do it properly to avoid injury,” said Carey Yang, a certified personal trainer based in Denville, who trains Gureasko. “Warm up with a stretch before you start to avoid back and knee pains. Also, stay hydrated and cool every 30 minutes.”

Lift your spirits

Nurturing your garden can be a real stress reducer, helping alleviate feelings of anxiety and providing a meditation break from the rush of the everyday.

Multiple studies show that a green-filled environment helps people relax, raises pain tolerance for people with chronic disorders, and improves moods. One of these studies, published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, found that regular exposure to natural environments such as gardens help people recover from the ill effects of stress more quickly.

“The process of watching your garden grow is therapeutic and rewarding. If you’re digging a hole, mending the soil or carrying 40-pound bags of fertilizer, you can not answer your cell phone,” said Gureasko.

Don’t stress if you do not have room for a garden in your own backyard. There is most likely a community garden near you. Perhaps you do not have enough green space or your yard does not get enough sun.

“It can be difficult to garden in West Milford, there’s a lot of rocks and boulders,” said owner David Watson-Hallowell of Sustainable West Milford, which offers a sunny piece of land where residents could gather to garden and learn.

Community gardens

The Community Garden in West Milford is an organic garden, which means no chemicals are allowed on or in the soil. Becoming a member is open to the public and free-of-charge.

While members are welcome to purchase organic seeds from any source, there are several local farms that sell organically grown seedlings to the members too. And fertilizer (horse manure) is donated by local stables.

Thirty West Milford families utilize the plots in the garden, growing vegetables, herbs and flowers.

Members are comprised of master gardeners and novice growers, children, retired folks, and every one in between. The food they harvest is for their own enjoyment. Any harvest in excess of what they can use is donated through its Ample Harvest program to local food pantries.

“There is a real sense of community and friendship among our gardeners,” said Watson-Hallowell. “Members take care of each others plots and each other in the process. It is a great way for people who are not familiar with gardening to get introduced to it in a high success rate environment.”

Working Out at Home Can Save Time and Money

Working out at home is convenient and can save you a lot of time. The biggest problem most people run into with working out at home is that they feel limited in their exercise selection because they have limited or no equipment at all.

By changing the speed you perform your exercises, you can create an unlimited number of progressions and variations without having to learn a single new exercise. There are three types of muscle action that need to be defined in order to clearly describe tempo. First off is eccentric action, which describes lowering the weight or your body (imagine going down to the bottom of a push-up).

Isometric action describes muscular contraction with no movement at all (imagine holding a push-up at the bottom). Concentric action refers to overcoming resistance (imagine now lifting yourself up to the top of a push-up). The collective process of adding timing to exercises is known as tempo.

These three phases of movement can be modified to burn more fat and build muscle and there is real-world evidence that modifying tempo can lead to great results. The kings (and queens) of bodyweight exercise are gymnasts. Gymnastics involves frequent use of slow eccentrics (demonstrating body control on rings and bars), isometric pauses (iron cross and other holds), and explosive eccentric and concentric actions (flips).

While the average person is not a gymnast, we can still apply these principles to home workout routines to increase the challenge without needing more equipment. For example, rather than do a simple push-up, you can lower yourself over 3 seconds, pause 2 seconds at the bottom, then explosively lift yourself to the top, trying to launch your body into the air. This push-up is much more advanced (and challenging) than a normal push-up.

These principles can be applied to any type of exercise to improve your home workouts. Slow down the eccentric and add pauses to movements to make them more difficult. Squats, lunges, push-ups, and abdominal exercises are a great place to start. Start out slow and experiment with a variety of tempos and pauses to find out what works best for you.
