"By Living A Healthy Lifestyle You Can Lose Weight Permanently"
Eat Your Veggies to Lose Belly Fat
You're doing hours upon hours of sit-ups, crunches, and leg raises and still can't lose that unsightly fat around your waist. You've also put yourself on a rigid diet plan but it seems as though you are just spinning your wheels.
It's not your fault. The food you eat, the water you drink, and the air around you contain chemicals known as xeno estrogens which promote abdominal fat. Fight this fat by eating cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, collard and turnip greens.
What Is "Living A Healthy Lifestyle"?
Living a healthy lifestyle is not as easy as it once was. When I was growing up in the '50s to early '60s there weren't many activities that could keep us indoors instead of playing outdoors (we didn't have video games, 24/7 television, cell phones, Internet). Our food was a lot healthier too.
But modern technology has changed all that. Living a healthy lifestyle in the 21st century requires careful food planning, shopping, and a consistent exercise program. But don't let that discourage you. It can be done.
This website will show you how, and what to avoid in order to lead a disease-free healthy lifestyle. Living a healthy lifestyle requires a solid nutrition program, a consistent exercise program, and a healthy mindset and outlook on life.
The first step to living a healthy lifestyle begins in the mind. You've got to believe in it and want to do it. But once you learn the benefits that a healthy lifestyle brings, you will want to put it in place immediately.
When your mind is made up, the next step is to implement the lifestyle and do it consistently. This takes discipline. Since you have already developed a healthy lifestyle mindset, the discipline is as easy to follow as the yellow brick road.
This particular yellow brick road will not lead you to the wizard of Oz, but to a lifelong passion and pursuit of living a healthy lifestyle.
Living A Healthy Lifestyle For Women Can Be Challenging
You will find more health and lifestyle information on women than on kids, men, and seniors. The women's web page is therefore much larger and more inclusive than the others.
Women face unique challenges. In her report entitled "Trends in Health Status and Health Care Use Among Older Women," Kristen Robinson, Ph.D. says:
"Older women live longer, develop different chronic conditions, and experience a higher prevalence of functional limitations than older men."
Source: Senior Journal.com
As an example, women face a greater risk of developing osteoporosis than men. Chronic conditions that greater numbers of older women face than men include high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, and bronchitis.
Take your time and read the information presented. You will discover nutrition and health procedures and nutrients which will protect you from chronic disease, and potentially harmful mainstream medical treatments.
Build a toned
midsection with these exercises If you want rock-hard abs like these, you have to melt
away that body fat. But exercise is needed to tone and build abdominal muscles. The armor plating you see at left is the result of
the stripping away of excess body fat and an intense abdominal workout. My workout included some weights because I wanted to enlarge the
muscles. But if you don't want to build up these muscles, skip the weights.

Must read-A humorous look at America's love affair with junk food--contrary to living a healthy lifestyle. The author of this hilarious piece is unknown.
I don't want to make it sound as if weight training is complicated - that you have to be a rocket scientist in order to do it right. But on the other hand I don't wish to paint a picture of 'tip-toeing through the tulips' with careless abandon either.
There is a right way and a wrong way to do anything. That includes lifting weights. And although it isn't difficult, doing it the wrong way can lead to injury (which is counterproductive to your goal.)

Strengthen your lower back by playing "Superman"
As I was flipping through the pages of Muscle & Performance magazine, I came upon an exercise movement that targets the lower back.
I happen to have a bad lower back which I need to keep strong. To strengthen it I perform hyperextensions. For that I use a sit-up chair at the gym I attend.
But what if you were on vacation, or didn't have access to that special chair? Well this movement which I will describe fills in nicely.
This lower back exercise is called the "superman." Lie flat on your stomach with your arms outstretched above your head and palms on the floor. Now lift your arms and upper body while at the same time lifting your legs. (Don't bend the knees.)
Return to the starting position and repeat. The movement is small but extremely effective.
