6 Reasons Exercise Won’t Counterbalance an Unhealthy Diet

Think of that time in your life when you never had to think about calories. A time you could consume an endless supply of pizza and stayed thin as a rail. How times have changed! But even if you exercise around the clock, your body won’t transform if you repeatedly give into cravings for high-fat foods and sweets. Flat abs are made in the kitchen and polished at the gym. No amount of cardio or sit-ups will sculpt your midsection if you put no thought into the foods you eat.

Regular physical activity is crucial for women facing menopause says the Mayo Clinic. Regardless of whether you’ve always been active or been a couch potato, menopause is an important transition in a woman’s life and a great opportunity to make a fresh start for the latter part of your life.

5 Reasons Most Diets Fail Within 7 Days

Written by

When it comes to diets, 2 out of 5 people quit within 7 days, 1 out of 5 will last the month and maybe make it to 3 months, this according to a recent UK survey. Each attempt can yield some weight loss, but the truth is that the short-term deprivation is just not sustainable.

As professional personal trainers in St. Louis, time and time again, people contact us with the same frustration – “I’ve been doing all of the ‘right things’ but when I get on the scale, I’ve not lost a pound!” While we are all different, here are five reasons why you may not be seeing results at the gym.

Ever starve yourself or severely restrict your diet to lose unwanted pounds? Or are you an emotional eater? A binger? Often, we accept misleading beliefs about food, even make food our enemy – it’s what causes us to feel or look less than ideal in our own eyes.

Here are 14 behaviors people with a healthy relationship with food routinely do. Our Registered Dietician Nutritionist in St Louis offers 14 tips to help you maintain a healthier relationship with food.

Written by

Manage Your Weight In Winter – 5 Tips

Written by

With artic temperatures knocking on our doors this week, here are some simple tips from our St. Louis nutrition coach to help you maintain a healthy weight when it’s just too cold to exercise outdoors or even get to your gym.

1. What are you drinking?

Stop drinking all those calories you don’t need. Processed fruit juices and sodas are loaded with sugar and actually promote weight gain. Even those creamy hot drinks – the lattes, pumpkin or otherwise – are often high in calories.

Tip: Wean yourself off high calorie drinks. Buy natural fruit juice (no added sugars) and gradually add water to it. Work more water in until you reach a level you are happy with. Also, you can add fruit slices, drink an herbal or flavored hot tea, or make your own lattes using lower calorie milk and a pinch of sugar if needed.
