Fat Burner HIIT

.

Recent research and a few other influences piqued my interest to read a little about Fat Burner HIIT and test it to see if it actually works.

Fat Burner HIIT is actually recommended to those with PCOS, which seems like a huge mistake as it would raise stress in a person who’s health is already compromised.  Realistically most HIIT programs out there would be a mistake for most people – it’s brutal.

Best exercise to lose weight

Bicepsmaller

Do you know how much daily exercise for health we are supposed to be doing? How much is too much, where it starts to negatively impact your health? Do you know the best exercise to lose weight?

I was visiting my parents who live two states away and I have a running joke with my father, where I ask – “Dad have you been lifting your weights a little?” He always replies, “I’ll start tomorrow.” He has said this for the last 30 years!

Cardio Workout at Home – Fast Metabolism

This little cardio workout at home is about the limit of what needs to be done for health. Did you know that intense cardio can actually damage your health?

There is no exercise that can actually increase your metabolism per se, only exercise that can lower it. When it’s too hard and extreme it may damage your thyroid and engage stress hormones too often.

Home Workout for a Fast Metabolism – One Ten Toned

home workout, exercise, muscles, weight loss, metabolism, belly fat

I’m so excited to advise that I’ve created a new home workout for a fast metabolism called…

One Ten Toned

– An easy exercise plan for a fast metabolism and a healthy toned body.

It’s been a labour of love and there are a few people to thank, but first you may be wondering, “Why exercise, isn’t food your thing?

Yes indeed it is, but for real health, exercise is part of it too. However just like extreme diets, people have been going whacko over extreme exercise like Cross Fit, marathon running, super heavy weights or exercising twice a day for an hour at a time, and all it’s doing is breaking people down and damaging their bodies. They think it’s healthy or helps with weight loss and actually for most, it’s not true.

Kayla Itsines Thinning Hair and Stretch Marks

kayla itsines, bbg, bikini body guide

So interestingly, after my last blog post – Does low carb dieting making your hair fall out? – all over the news in the same week, there was this confession from workout queen Kayla Itsines:-

“My natural hair is actually super short. I have genetically really thin hair,” she wrote, adding that her grandmother and her mom have thin hair as well, and that there is a family history of female pattern baldness. “I can see my hair getting thinner and thinner the older I get.” See articles below.

 TeenVogue.com; FoxNews.com;

And in most of these similar stories, the reason given for it is Female Pattern Baldness that runs in Kayla Itsines family. The message of being happy and proud no matter what your issue is commendable. (I learned long ago that worrying what other people think is a waste of a happy life.)

So far so good.

However then in another two articles, there is a mention of hypothyroidism….

Exercise for weight loss? Not quite the remedy we’ve been led to believe.

exercise for weight loss

The articles published recently about the questionable effective relationship of exercise for weight loss mirror my experiences.

It’s funny because I have worked things out for myself for a long time now regarding weight loss based on how it feels for my body. It has led me to the place I am now – happy, healthy the weight I want to be without much effort at all.

It helped me wade through the information overwhelm which is mostly conflicting and arrive at my truth.

The new paradigm is…

Best exercise for losing weight – One Ten Toned

best exercise for losing weight

The best exercise for losing weight is less intense than you think. We’ve been led to believe that we must thrash ourselves constantly for it to be effective. However all that happens is it raises stress and lowers our metabolism, making it harder to lose weight.

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “I really should do some exercise” but that was 10 years ago, then ONE TEN TONED is the program for you.

Short, fun, super simple, yet effective to develop long lean muscles without the bulk. Avoiding all those hurtful, hateful exercises like burpees, jump squats, sit ups, straight leg lifts, planks and running, which can be really damaging to the knees, back and neck.

Go at your own pace and build up slowly.

Why it’s great…

  • only 10 minutes of light weights a day building to medium weights
  • clearly explains why this method works for muscle tone
  • 30 day planner of exercises
  • pictures showing each exercise
  • explains why cardio may be damaging your health
  • explains the link between the right exercise & weight loss & how we’ve been doing it wrong
  • song playlist to make it fun
  • suitable for beginners
  • it’s the best exercise for losing weight

Finally an exercise program I actually want to do!” – Linda Z

“Love that the exercises are so doable.” – Anna D.

“I bought One Ten Toned in an effort to find a sustainable simple workout for my mom and I. I’m used to the concept of “workouts” entailing high stress, high impact sensations, and was intrigued by the prospect of a low impact, low stress but effective workout. I was blown away by everything I read. The workouts definitely work my muscles, but without the impact and pain I could no longer manage from a workout. They are simple and easy to incorporate every single day. I have been telling a lot of my friends about this unique system!” – Maggie Miller – Natural Health and Wellness Tribe

“I recently purchased your book, One Ten Toned and I must say, words truly can’t express how grateful I am to you for writing this book.  It has freed me from years and years of struggling with my workout  inconsistencies. I’ve started and stopped numerous exercise programs. I fooled myself over and over, believing that I was working out consistently but what I was actually doing was finding every excuse not to work out on many more days than when I would actually do it.  I don’t know how you thought to come up with this marvellous and very unique exercise program.  It’s so perfect, not only in that it is just short enough to want to do it every day, but also simple enough to do even when I’m having a hectic day.  Again I can’t thank you enough.” – Isabel

Really appreciate that Emily took the time to get in touch and share her experience with One Ten Toned. She goes on to say…

“...bought a copy of your eBook about three months ago and since then have been (most days) getting my daily 10 minutes of exercises. Your instructions are so helpful and really make exercise stress free and fun. This is coming from a super busy mama of three boys under 6 and sufferer of an auto immune disease and adrenal fatigue! I had tried and failed so many times to put in place regular exercise practice until I found your book.

I already feel stronger and real improvements to my posture – and this summer I got into my swimsuit with confidence that I have a more toned and able body! Looking forward to keeping this up in 2019! Thanks so much for all you do.” – Emily Clare.

So thrilled it’s working for Emily, me and others too.

Muscles burn calories faster – apparently

Barbells_Shot400

Muscles help burn calories faster so therefore you should get muscles first to lose weight – apparently…

Ok so it’s no secret that I don’t like going to the gym. It just doesn’t do it for me from a number of angles.  Despite the fact that the fitness crew out there still blast away that it’s the best thing ever and many, many weight loss programs insist that you must go to the gym to lose weight, I am finally at peace with the facts:-

a) I don’t need to go any where near a gym to lose weight

b) I don’t need to feel bad, less than or hopeless because I don’t go

c) it’s perfectly fine to know what you don’t like and it doesn’t mean you are lazy

d) some people love it – so go for your life! Just leave the rest of us alone.

(In fact truth be told, apparently the stats are that only about 10% of the population go to the gym, so there is way more of us who don’t – interesting!)

Running for weight loss

 

I was just checking out some other weight loss blogs and some on social media and about half of them said something about finding a new love of running. I will bet anything that none of them have a clue that running actually lowers your metabolism.

Sorry but I hate running. Jogging as well.

It all hurts too much from my boobs bouncing and hurting (even with a super dooper hold ‘em up, squish ‘em in sports bra. Two sometimes.)

Bad personal trainers

personal trainers

It gets me every time. I can’t stand it!!! Bad personal trainers and the whole wrong concept of torturing yourself to lose weight.

Every time I see something like this, all my own weight loss struggles, feelings of hardship, dread, exasperation, disappointment at trying all different things that never worked and just plain hopelessness come flooding back.

I just feel it. I feel for the person, I feel angry at society, I feel disdain for the fitness and weight loss industry who are preying on these people and I just feel frustrated that I can’t help more people faster!

This post covers some ground that I have previously covered but because I keep seeing it over and over, it makes me want to keep saying it over and over in a slightly different way. Hopefully maybe people will get it and stop all this unnecessary suffering. It’s driving me crazy. Continue reading
