Set goals, receive definitive data regarding your efforts and make changes where necessary. Again, if you would like to know more information about it or how you can get one, call me at 214-603-8287.

Here is the information I got about The biggest Loser

New Fitness Technology
One of the new tools being used this season by all the contestants is Apex Fitness Group’s Bodybugg – “the world’s most intelligent calorie management System.” You’ll notice that every Biggest Loser contestant this season is wearing an armband 24/7. Kim later explained in the second episode that this gadget is “weight management on your arm.” The BodyBugg is the latest advancement in calorie expenditure prediction. Using sensors to measure skin temperature, skin resistively and ambient temperature, the BodyBugg is 92% accurate. The Biggest Loser trainers are able to track each participant’s daily calorie expenditure, similar to a GPS device, as the device communicates with software on a PC. The trainers can then pinpoint the exact time of day when a contestant is lying down or resting and burning little calories and suggest ways to modify activity and diet to keep those calories burning! By simplifying the tedious chore of calorie counting and calculations, the Bodybugg allows you to reach your weight loss goals but at a price of $500 plus ongoing subscription to the Bodybugg web service. Access to the latest advancements in nutrition and exercise technology and gadgets, such as the Bodybugg, is one of the Biggest Loser’s weight loss secrets!

Diet
With a formidable team of nutritionists and doctors, the Biggest Loser contestants have top-notch diet and nutrition information and tips. In an interview with MSNC, Dr. Michael Dansinger, a consultant on The Biggest Loser Season 2, explained “the people in the show are in a fantasy, unrealistic environment where everything is optimized for weight loss.” He notes that having nothing else to do working with a trainer makes it possible for participants to entirely reconfigure their diet and exercise routine.

Dansinger says that “50 to 60 percent of [contestants’] weight-loss success comes from dietary change.” The Biggest Loser contestants are used to consuming almost 3000 calories a day in their daily lives, but on the show they are consuming only about 1500 calories a day. Also, the trainers focus on substitution of sweets with sugar-free deserts and fruit and increasing contestant’s lean protein consumption in order to rev metabolisms.

Past contestants have revealed the following about their weight loss successes on the Biggest Loser in an interview from TvGuide.com:

~ “Eat 5-6 meals a day to your keep metabolism burning and never more than 2-3 hrs without food.”
~ “Eat protein at every meal and always couple carbs with protein because protein helps your body process carbs more efficiently.”
~ “Counting calories is key.”
~ “Don’t skip breakfast. It’s very important. You’ve got to get the motor running. I equate my body to an engine, and you’ve got to get that engine started first thing in the morning.”
~ “It’s all about choices. You can have a beef patty for 300 calories or substitute lean turkey at only 150 cal for the same 4 oz.”

Some of the diet advice the trainers, Bob and Kim, regularly emphasize is:
~ “Sit down at the dinner table when you eat; don’t stand up. People eat more when they’re standing up.”
~ “Make friends with fiber. Not only is it good for digestive health, it fills you up so you don’t get hungry as often.”
~ “Carry healthy snacks with you so that when you get hungry, you won’t cheat.”
~ “Make friends with fiber. Not only is it good for digestive health, it fills you up so you don’t get hungry as often.”

With the help of the show, the overweight contestants establish new healthy food relationships and learn about nutrition. And with such a restricted diet, it is no wonder the Biggest Loser participants shed such big numbers on the scale each week!

Fitness
So if 50 to 60 percent of the Biggest Losers weight loss success comes from diet, where is the other 40 to 50 percent coming from you ask? Through three to four hours of intense exercise every day, with at least an hour of strength training and two hours of cardio! This amount of activity allows the contents to burn an extra 1200 to 1500 calories, almost eclipsing the amount of calories they are taking in! Dansinger says. “It’s hard to do by yourself, but on the show it’s easy to do. When people allow themselves to be put in that kind of environment … when you pull out all the barriers to weight loss, that’s when the weight loss can come very quickly.”

The Biggest Loser Pete Thomas shared more secrets of the reality show’s exercise regimen in an interview with the 700 club. Pete revealed they were not allowed a television or phone on the ranch and had no contact with their families. Every day participants completed a four hour intense workout, especially cruel for how out-of-shape the contestants all were.

Pete says about the fitness routine, “Well, first thing in the morning, we were required to do an hour of intense cardio, so we had to keep our heart rate above a certain number of beats per minute. And in the afternoon, Jillian would come in, and she’d work us out an hour doing the resistance training and another hour doing the cardio. Then in the evening, we’d do another hour of cardio. In between, all you had time to do was get something to eat and rest because you were sore all the time.”

Not wanting to excessively stress the contestants joints, high impact cardio such as running and skipping rope were not the staples of the Biggest Loser fitness regimen in the beginning. The elliptical machines, treadmills and bikes of the Biggest Loser gym were the staples of the exercise program.

With exercise routines specifically formulated by personal trainers and diets tailored and timed around workouts to burn fat and build muscle, the Biggest Loser contestants chief weight loss secret is their fitness plan!

So how was Jerry, the oldest contestant in Biggest Loser history, able to lose 30 pounds the first week at the ranch? As a male he has the advantage of increased muscle mass and with a history in athletics, the workouts came easier for him. But the dramatic weight loss results on the Biggest Loser are due mainly to technological advances like the Bodybugg, first-rate personal trainers, Jilian, Bob and Kim and at least 3 to 4 hours of intense exercise a day combined with a calorie-restricted diet. The shocking number of pounds the contestants drop each week is also due in part to sheer size. It takes more effort and burns more calories to move a 300 or 400 pound body then a 150 pound one, hence the significant weight loses. With an almost 50% calorie consumption decrease and no television, phone or family distractions, it’s no wonder the Biggest Loser contestants lose weight so quickly. The question, however, is if such rapid weight loss is healthy and in the long-term what matters most is if you are able to keep those pound off or not!

What is the truth about Fat Burning? What are some good Fat burning exercises and workouts?

blog

What are some truths about Fat Burning and Fat Burining Exercises?

We all want to burn more fat for weight loss, body shaping, health and wellbeing or for sporting purposes. This helps give you some fat burning exercises and fat burning tips.

What are some of the 101’s of fat burning?

Energy in, energy out. Calories in, calories out. This all depends on what you eat and drink during the day and also how many calories your body burns in a given day. When you exert more energy that you actually eat or drink on a consistant basis, you will lose body fat. The key is to continue to hard work.

The key to all this is to be constistant. You can not starve your self and then eat all your calories in one sitting each day. You body needs small well-balanced foods throughout the day. Starving yourself or going long periods of time with out eat will not help your body burn extra fat.

What is a Fat burning exercise or workout. Every gym has the cardio machines that have all types of levels. One level is called interval training. This is a great fat burning exercise or workout if you do them correctly.

Your body burns a greater percentage of fat at much faster speeds or intensity if you perform this type of fat burning exercise instead of going at a stead pace the whole time you do cardio.

An example of doing a fat burning exercie of Interval Training:

If you are on the tread mill,
Minutes 1: Walk Fast
Minute 2: Jog
Minute 3: Run
That would be one cycle. do 5 cycles and move on to the next cardio machine. Do the same thing on the next machine. Say it is the stair stepper. Go slow 1 minute, medium paced for a minute, and hard for a minute and start back over. Do 5 cycles before stoping. That would equal to 30 minutes and your body would have burned more calories that about 45-60minutes of doing cardio at the same pace in a low heart rate zone.

That is one example of an exerice or workout you can start doing today to help burn more fat!

Tip of the Day- Be HEALTHIER Today than your were Yesturday!

blog

Coppell, TX – Fitness and Health Tip of the WEEK – Make today HEAHTHIER than YESTERDAY!

Did any of you get into watching The Biggest Loser this season on NBC?? I have talked to a few people in our boot camps about the last episode that was on recently.  For ANYONE looking for motivation, The Biggest Loser will definitely get you off the couch and get moving. I always am amazed at the amount of work the contestants do in the few short months they are on the show. The Biggest Loser contestant’s main focus is to lose weight and lose the biggest percentage of weight loss. If you have not watched it, all of them come in with terrible habits and are VERY UNHEALTHY. They eat junk, are lazy, and most of them have NO confidence because of their situation.  It is so inspiring to  watch people both young and old change their WHOLE LIVES being on the show. You can see their personality change as their bodies change. As you are watching the show, you seem to hear yourself say Amazing, Unbelievable, No Way, and other words to describe the transformation that occurs for them. They truly are life changing.

The show gives the contestants an opportunity to change their health and fitness the old fashioned way…HARD WORK (with exercise and diet) and EDUCATION. Professional fitness trainers (Bob and Julian) help teach them the science of fitness and how important resistance training is to short and long term results. They also get the most advanced team of doctor’s and nutritionists to help them reach their goals. They are given all the tools to help motivate them to achieve their own goals. Tools like nutritional journals, frequent weigh-ins, professional help, and a group support group.

Does this sound like something you have heard before? This sounds a lot like the Get You In Shape Boot Camp Program. We have done the work for you and provided each of you with all the tools you need to achieve the results you are looking for. We help you with accountability. We make ourselves available to you for any help you need to achieve your goals.  Our Boot Camp program allows you to come 14 days in 26 days and encourages each of you to do off-day cardio. The group support is also there. We also help each of you with a nutrition plan and help you learn about the foods you are putting in your mouth and educate you on what, when and how to eat. What more do you need? We also provide each of you with an opportunity to hear about the 40 Day Challenge , which is a proven step-by-step program that is all laid out for you. People ask about price and there is NO COST except for the proven nutritional products that help with RESULTS, energy and cravings.

MY POINT IS THIS>>>>You have all taken a huge step in signing up for our program. Some of you it was the first in years. Some of you just needed more accountability and motivation from what you were doing.  Some of you just need the professional programming I do to always make the workout different and tough.
WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK- TIP OF THE WEEK – Be healthier today than yesterday????
The first step you each of you should shoot for is to be healthier today than you were yesterday. Being healthier will help EVERY area in your life. Yes, it is good that you FEEL better about yourself, but YOU being healthy will help your family, friends, co-workers, and everyone around you.
BE MORE HEALTHIER TODAY THAN YOU WERE YESTURDAY. Being healthier than yesterday just means making more healthier choices.

Let’s say you did NOT do a good job yesterday on the Get You In Shape program. Being healthier TODAY will be your first step. Then tomorrow, when you wake up, you try to be healthier than you were today. Each day is a new day! A new step! A new chance to change! If you can focus on JUST that, then your choices will slowly begin to change for the better. Not only will you begin to feel better (mentally and physically) but your body will also naturally begin to LOOK better.

The key is to just try to be healthier today then you were yesterday. For each of you, this will mean something different. Some of you have the exercise part down but struggle to eat healthy. Some of you just cannot seem to drink enough water. Whatever it is, try to do better today than you did yesterday. I promise you will look up in a few months and be proud of the changes. You will feel better (about yourself also) and the results will come.

So this week, your focus should be being healthier today than yesterday. In 5 days you will have worked on many of your habits just from this ONE FOCUS.

Healthy Recipe – Advocare Meal Replacement -Alternative to fast food smoothies

blog

Today’s Healthy Recipe comes from Elizabeth Cawthon. She is a Boot Camp member since January 08 and has also been successful in the 40 Day Challenge.

Please send all healthy recipes to us so we can share.

The Advocare Meal Replacement shakes are really a no-brainer when it comes to after a workout. They have just he right blend of proteins, carbs, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and calories to make for a very easy, convenient, and GREAT TASTING shake. After a workout, you have a window of 60 minutes when you need to fill your body with good nutrition. I always like to ask if it is not the meal replacement shakes, then what are you consuming that has all the nutrition that you get in the shakes. We go share at least 20-30 boxes of shakes each month to all the participants in our programs. If you have not tried them, let me know and I will bring you one to try for FREE.

 Advocare Healthy Smoothie – Elizabeth Cawthon, Boot Camp since Jan. 2008
I have one of these after workouts.  They taste like the
chocolate frosties at a fast food place we all know.  
Chocolate smoothie1 envelope Advocare chocolate “Trim” meal replacement
5 ice cubes
1 banana, frozen (peel banana, cut it into chunks, and freeze in foil)
1/4 c  water
2 Tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt

 

Blend together in a strong blender for 1 minute until very smooth.  

Use a little more water if you want a thinner consistency.
