Can FDA Approved Diet Drug Belviq Claim Victory Against Obesity?





OMG! There comes another big promise from the big pharma and government to save the overweight and obese Americans.

FDA just approved another new diet pill for doctors to prescribe to obese patients.


The new drug is called Belviq.

The FDA had denied approval for this drug in 2010 when scientist showed concerns that the drug may actually cause tumors in people.

Tumors!

The FDA just approved this drug after "new information" was produced by the manufacture.

Mmmm, some kind of conspiracy?

The studies show that this drug has helped obese people lose as much as 5% of their body weight within a year.
That means that a 300 lbs obese woman can lose as much as 15 pounds in a year.

15 pounds or 5% weight loss in a year?

Give me a 300 Lbs woman and I'll help her lose 15 pounds in 2-3 weeks by two simple tweaks by adding 15-20 minutes of walking to her lifestyle and removing some starches from her diet
You and I know that what you do and how you do it is the ultimate fat loss solution becuase you teach a lifestyle change, exercise, and good nutrition.

But the general public doesn't care.

All they're going to see is the ten o'clock news when the talking heads tell them that the FDA has approved a new weight loss pill.

Then they're going to see the TV ads from this drug company touting the new weight loss drug and encouraging them to "ask your doctor about it".

The public is going to see hope in this drug.

But you have an ethical obligation to educate and enlighten your clients, prospects and community on this new drug and how like all other drugs that were once approved and are now banned, this may end up the same way.

And that ultimately the hope of losing 5% of your body weight within a year shouldn't outweigh the risk of side effects like potential TUMORS.

Other side effects?

Including serotonin syndrome - a potentially life-threatening drug reaction that causes the body to produce too much serotonin and causes symptoms of agitation, diarrhea, heavy sweating, fever, muscle spasms, tremors or mental health changes. People taking antidepressants or migraine drugs that increase serotonin levels may be at an increased risk for this side effect. The drug may also cause "disturbances in attention or memory, according to FDA.

Use with caution in people who have congestive heart failure, according to the FDA.

Why Cross Training Can Help You Lose More Fat, Build More Muscles, Reduce Aches and Pains


NJ personal trainer and fitness expert Carey Yang interviewed on why and how to do cross training to help lose more fat, build a stronger well-conditioned body, heal and prevent injuries.

Carey Yang, Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Expert


Millions of Americans suffering from overuse injuries from exercises or sports now can learn why they should do cross training and how to do it right with New Jersey celebrity personal trainer and fitness expert Carey Yang.

Yang is the owner and master personal trainer at Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC — a leading in-home personal training and weight-loss management company serving and helping clients in Morris County, Sussex County, Passaic County, Essex County and Somerset County areas in New Jersey.

Cross training has been used for years although it’s a relatively new training concept. Athletes have used exercises outside their sports for conditioning due to weather, seasonal change, facility and equipment availability, and injuries. Cross training add many benefits to sports training including injury prevention.

Cross training is one type of training methods used to achieve well-rounded overall conditioning. The exercises are normally very different from what an athlete does in a particular sport. It gives a chance for the muscles, tendons, bones, joints and ligaments to take a break from repetitive use from sport-specific activities. In the meantime, cross training provides complementaryconditioning to balance an athlete. This concept is also very useful for amateur athletes or recreational weekend warriors.

Another benefit of cross training is to help reduce or reverse muscle imbalances in the body. For example, a baseball pitcher may develop an imbalance laterally between the two sides of the body as well as in the should girdle of the throwing arm. After thousands of high-speed forceful throwing, the throwing arm and muscles become stronger but potentially overused and injured. Rotator cuff injuries are very common. Cross training can help balance the strength on both sides. It helps stabilize muscles and realign the body. In addition, since you’re participating in different activities during cross training, it adds variety to your program and reduce chance of burn-out due to boredom.

One caution for cross training is that it doesn’t help develop skills for a specific sport. It isn’t a skill-specific drill. A football player can lift weights or slow-jog 5 miles a day all summer during off season. But he won’t be in great “football shape” when the pre-season starts. By all means, “cross” training should not be used as the sole training program. You still have to start slowly with cross training and increase intensity progressively without getting injured.

There are many ways to apply the concept of cross training to your fitness program, sports or activities all year round. Some examples are listed in the following.

* Aerobic Cross Training I
Use a variety of cardio equipment within one workout session; e.g., ten minutes on the treadmill, ten minutes on the bike, ten minutes on the elliptical machine.

* Aerobic Cross Training II
Use a variety of cardio equipment or modules throughout the week or month; e.g., run 30 minutes on Monday, bike 30 minutes on Wednesday, step class on Friday.

* Mixed Cross Training
Use a variety of activities that emphasizes different body functions and fitness; e.g., total-body weight training on Monday, kickboxing/martial arts on Wednesday, Yoga/Pilates on Friday.

* Cross-Over Training
Use activities that require totally different body functions or energy systems; e.g., A cyclist can do boxing (mainly upper body movements) during off-season so that he can rest his legs (lower body) for a while. Cycling requires more aerobicendurance while boxing demands more anaerobic energy output. Both energy systems are important in overall cardiovascular fitness.

* Seasonal Cross Training
Use or train for different sports or activities over large blocks of time or seasons; e.g., running for Spring, playing golf, tennis or swimming for Summer, outdoor rock-climbing for Fall, skiing or snowboarding for Winter.

* Functional/Complementary Cross Training
Use different activities to train similar function used in the main sport; e.g., Runners may use mountain biking to target the legs from slightly different actions. Cyclists may use cross-country skiing to maintain leg strength and cardiovascular endurance.

Although an advantage of cross training is decreased risk of injury, one still has to start the sports or activities slowly. Don’t fall into the same pitfalls in your main sport. Learn the basics. Perform adequate conditioning exercises in advance. Increase the intensity and duration progressively.

Many sports and activities share the same fitness characteristics of strength, power, speed, agility, endurance, balance, and flexibility. But each sport is still different with somewhat shift in performance requirements. A cyclist certainly doesn’t want to get injured from downhill skiing. In the same token, A football player would be sorry for sitting out on the bench for the season from motorcycle accident.

Dream Body Coach Disputes Top 3 Myths about Getting Ripped 6 Pack Abs




Carey Yang, Certified Personal Trainer
Fitness Expert & Abs Specialist

The quest to getting a set of ripped 6 pack abs has been a world craze as far and as long as I can remember. The media is so obsessed about the flat stomach or ripped abs image. We're brain-washed that we gotta have to them be good, fit, and desired person.

Over the years, many "myths" or half-baked truths have been rumoring around. Most people are confused by different opinions from different experts. The lightening speed of internet and social media makes it even worse.

Each of the following myths have some merit. They become a myth when an unethical fitness professional or expert takes a narrow perspective in order to stir up controversy in an effort to get you to buy their hyped up fat loss program. It's time to cut through the chase and set the record straight.

Myth #1: Abs Are Made In The Kitchen

It's important to watch what you eat and how much you eat in the kitchen. You simply can't out-train a lousy diet to build muscles, lose fat and sculpt 6 pack abs.

However, I have been many scrawny men or skinny women dieting down to low percent of body fat and still don't have abs that pop out.

So if you want to develop eye catching abs that really stand out, you still need to train your abs and work them hard in addition to following an effective diet.


Myth #2: Crunches Are Bad For Your Back

Unfortunately most people do the crunches wrong and strain their necks and back. They conclude that crunches are useless and bad for their back.

Performed properly, crunches or curl-ups are effective exercise to directly work on your abdominal muscles. Abs - short for "rectus abdominis" - is designed to flex for spinal flexion movement.

Performing crunching movements with proper form is the best way to fully develop them. Floor crunches, stability ball crunches, cable crunches, and double crunch are all great exercises for developing your abs.


Myth #3: You Can't Train Your Lower Abs

Some fitness trainers argue that you can't work your lower abs, because the Rectus Abdominis is one long muscle.  It's only partially true. Just like any muscle-building exercise, you can put more emphasis on certain part of the muscle by performing the exercise in different angle and range of motion.

The key here is "emphasis" not to complete isolate lower abs. Hanging Knee Raises, Reverse Crunches, and the Jackknife among several other exercises place extra emphasis on the lower abdominal muscles. Basically any exercise where the movement involves tilting your pelvis up toward your chest, will place extra emphasis on the lower section of your abs.

The word "emphasis" is the key here. With each of the above abs exercises your entire Rectus Abdominis muscle will be working, but you should "feel" more tension and contraction in the lower abs compared to how they "feel" when you are performing other crunching movements.

If you want to sculpt a sexy set of six pack abs while developing a strong core  and look your best, you must follow a strategically designed workout program that includes functional exercises, crunching movements that emphasize the upper and mid section of the Rectus Abdominis, crunching movements that emphasize the lower section of the Rectus Abdominins, and exercises that work the Transverse Abdominals and Obliques.

In a final word, remember, your diet is equally important as your abs training routine. Check out Metabolic Masterpiece for Fat Loss Quckie.

Happy, Healthier Baby Boomer Client Thanks Personal Trainer Carey Yang for Motivation, Coaching, and Training to Healthy Path





Testimonial from a happy client for Morris County NJ personal trainer Carey Yang.
“I’ve had back problems for the last 5 years that prohibited me from participating in any significant exercise programs. As a result, I had become unmotivated and reluctant to commit (physically or financially) to any type of training. After speaking with Carey, I decided to give it one more try. Carey’s professionalism, knowledge and most importantly, patience – has made my training a positive experience. He was sensitive to my physical challenges, yet consistent in his training and expectations. The progress has been steady and I “honestly” have had less back pain and more mobility than I’ve had in years. Carey has definitely provided a rejuvenation for this baby boomer and I will continue on this path to a healthier lifestyle.”
— Sharon F., Madison, NJ
