Is Workout Better Than Depression Drugs?

Can workout beat depression drugs?


Working out can eliminate signs of depression in people who are already taking medication, but still having symptoms, according to a new University of Texas study.

“About 70 percent of people on medication will still have signs of depression,” explains study author Madhukar Trivedi, M.D., professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. “One treatment usually leads to improvement, not remission.”

In the study, 28 percent of people who worked out on a treadmill or stationary bike for 30 to 45 minutes, 3 to 4 times a week eliminated their symptoms. When another group exercised 2 to 3 times a week for 20 to 30 minutes, 16 percent saw symptoms disappear. “When we compared to other studies, we even found that exercise was just as effective as taking an additional medication,” says Dr. Trivedi.

This was especially true for men. Researchers found that men had a very low remission rate when they exercised only a little, but a high rate when they exercised a lot. (Women were less polarized.)

Researchers aren’t quite sure why depressed men need more exercise, but it certainly effects your hormones. “Exercise releases serotonin, which can help reduce symptoms of depression,” explains Dr. Trivedi. “We think that the feeling of accomplishment plays a role, too.”

If you’re feeling low, sign up for a 5K to boost both your serotonin and confidence, or better yet, hire a personal trainer to give you customized training program and workout routines.

Trivedi also notes that exercise can’t replace a doctor when it comes to depression treatment. “Think of it like diabetes,” he says. “You’d eat right, but you’d still go for check-ups.”

15 Minutes of Daily Exercise Helps Cut Risk of Death and Increase Life Span

Exercising just 15 minutes per day can effectively increase life expectancy compared with little or no exercise at all, according to a recent study in Taiwan involving over 400,000 individuals.

Don’t despair if you cannot fit in the recommended 30 minutes of daily exercise. Growing evidence suggests that even half that much can help.

It’s still no excuse to slack off. Regular exercise strengthens muscles, reduces the risk of some diseases and promotes mental well-being. The more exercise, the better.

However, not everyone has the time or willpower. So researchers set out to find the minimum amount of physical activity needed to reap health benefits. The findings by a study in Taiwan suggest just 15 minutes of moderate exercise a day can lead to a longer life.

This “may convince many individuals that they are able to incorporate physical activity into their busy lives,” Anil Nigam of the University of Montreal said in an e-mail.

Nigam had no role in the research, but wrote an editorial accompanying the Taiwanese study published online on Monday in The Lancet.

Fitness guidelines by the WHO, the US and other countries recommend that adults get at least a half-hour of moderate workout most days of the week. This can include brisk walking, bike riding and water aerobics.
Realizing that it might be difficult for some to break a sweat, health groups have suggested breaking it down into smaller, more manageable chunks of time such as three 10-minute spurts a day on weekdays.

The latest study, a large one led by researchers at the National Health Research Institutes, sought to determine if exercising less than the recommended half-hour was still helpful.

The researchers said that east Asians — including Taiwanese, Chinese and Japanese — are generally less physically active than their Western counterparts and their workouts tend to be less intense.

About 416,000 Taiwanese adults were asked how much exercise they did the previous month. Based on their answers, they were put into five groups of varying activity levels from inactive to highly active.

Researchers kept track of their progress for eight years on average and calculated projected life expectancy.

The study found those who exercised just 15 minutes a day — or 90 minutes a week — cut their risk of death by 14 percent and extended their life expectancy by three years compared with those who did no exercise. Both men and women benefited equally from the minimum activity.

Each additional 15 minutes of exercise reduced the risk of death by another 4 percent compared with the inactive group.

Researchers did not report how additional exercise affected life expectancy.

There were some limitations. Answers were self-reported. The study, though large, was observational, which means the health benefits may not be entirely due to exercise.

However, researchers said they took into account other factors that might affect health such as smoking and drinking. And outside scientists said the findings are in line with other studies.

For the sedentary, the key is this: Some exercise is better than none.

“Get off the couch and start moving,” I-Min Lee of the Harvard School of Public Health said.

People should strive to do the recommended level of exercise, but should not be discouraged if they can’t achieve it right away. Start slow and gradually build up.

“As inactive persons start moving, they may very well find that they become more fit” and reaching their exercise goal becomes easier, Lee said.

The Big Fat Lies about Weight Loss

You've been lied by the news and commercials about weight loss.

The truth about weight loss is that anyone can lose weight. The truth behind the truth is that how long one can sustain the weight loss and keep it off.

The real-person testimonials in product and program advertisements are indeed powerful and inspiring. However, most show only the before and after pictures. They rarely show what happens to the subject or model after 3 or 5 years. In addition, read the fine prints at the bottom. It typically reads,"xxxx's results are not typical." What a bummer!

This is the time frame for long-term adherence of a successul weight management program including healthy lifestyle change, regular strength training and cardio exercise, and proper nutrition plan.

Many people are so fired up after New Year that could actually serve them no good. They start strong and begin to wane after a few weeks. It is how strong you finish it that matters.

Here are 3 motivation boosters that will help you put things in perspective when you're stuck.

1. Be realistic. Dreaming about the body of your dreams is exciting. Dreaming without a realistic plan is fantasy. Compare only to yourself, not the celebrities or models.

2. Shift your focus. Women, in particularly, are constantly on the diet. It's the most guarded open secret in the company cafeteria. Foods and dieting cracks are the gossips of the queen. Divert your attention in foods for losing weight to the good cause of staying healthy for youself and for your family.

3. Treat yourself. Allow your favorite treats in small portion so that you don't feel deprived. Otherwise, you may binge whenever you get a chance.

Don't lie to yourself. Be truthful to yourself about weight loss.

Morris County NJ In-Home Personal Trainer to Launch Cellulite-Busting 'Firm Butt and Thighs' Workout Program

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Morris County Personal Trainer, Fitness Boot Camp Coach and Dream Body Workout Expert Carey Yang is scheduled to release a new cellulite-busting workout program 'Firm Butt and Thighs' for women over age 40.

Denville, NJ -- August 7, 2011 -- For women over age 40 who have challenges in getting rid of cellulite to firm up their butt and thighs now can try the new 'Firm Butt and Thighs' workout program to be released by the leading Morris County, New Jersey personal trainer and dream body expert Carey Yang.

Yang is owner and master trainer at Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC -- a leading in-home personal training and weight-loss management company based in Denville, Morris County in New Jersey.

Cellulites are fat cells that have bulged through cell walls into the skin’s middle layer, where they pull on connective tissue to create an unattractive, dimpled skin surface. "To repair cellulite, you need to strengthen and hydrate your body’s cells and the connective tissue in your body," Yang says. " You can see great reduction in cellulite when you start to make lifestyle changes like giving up smoking and excessive alcohol."

There are many cellulite remedies in the marketplace including medical cellulite removal, spa treatment, massage with essential oils, detox and cleansing, and supplements.

"These are all good, may or may not work." Yang says. "You need to adopt a healthy lifestyle, eat a healthy diet, and start a fat cell metabolizing workout routine. There is really no short cut."

The new 'Firm Butt and Thighs" workout program focuses on full body strength training with interval cardiovacsular exercises to boost metabolism and energize fat cells to release the lipid fats.

Here is a sample total-body fat-burning workout to bust cellulite, melt fat and tone muscles. This dumbbell whole-body workout incorporates, Dumbbell Jump Squat, Pushup and Dumbbell Renegade Row, all in one smooth move.

Weighted Jump Squat works the quads, hips and cardio resistance. Pushup is the best overall upperbody exercise that works the chest, front shoulders, triceps and core. Renegade Row is like doing one-dumbbell row at the pushup or plank position.
