Walking is Good, with Strength Training, Even Better

Walking is great exercise. Enthusiasts reap many health benefits, both physically and emotionally. Walking and other aerobic activities help to improve sleep and to decrease symptoms of depression, the risk of developing heart disease and Type II diabetes. Walking also helps to reduce obesity while decreasing body fat and improving circulation.

However, to increase and maintain bone and muscle mass, strengthening exercises are the way to go. Little by little, fat replaces muscle and bone tissue as you age. While the bathroom scale may not change, your body composition does — unless you take action.

The Benefits of Strength Training
In comparison to walking programs, strength-training programs are more effective in increasing muscle mass and bone density, with as little as two half-hour sessions per week. In addition, strength training provides benefits similar to aerobic exercise such as decreasing depression, improving sleep, helping with weight management and decreasing body fat.

Increased bone density reduces the risk of osteoporosis, a condition in which bones become thin and brittle and are easily fractured during falls or other accidents. And maintaining muscular strength is extremely important for continued independence and physical function as you age.

Integrating Strength Training into Your Exercise Program
If you are walking an hour every day, six days a week, substitute a portion of your walking time with strength training to receive the maximum benefit from exercise. For example, on three of the six days, decrease your walking time to a half-hour and reserve the second half-hour for strengthening exercises. On the other three days, continue to walk for the full hour. It is important to take a day off in between strength-training sessions. Walking everyday, whether strength training or not, is fine.

To Modify Your Current Walking Program to Include Strength Training, You Have Several Options for Getting Started:
At home — To start a program at home, you will need to purchase equipment and instructional materials. My two books, “Strong Women Stay Young” and “Strong Women Stay Slim,” outline at-home strength training program. The second book also includes nutrition and aerobic exercise components.
At a fitness facility — To utilize the equipment provided at gyms and health clubs, it is important to receive instruction from a trainer on staff before starting a program. Be sure to ask your questions as they come up.
Using a personal trainer — Either at home or at a fitness facility, you may also want to work one-on-one with a personal trainer who can give added motivation, guidance and instruction. You can find personal trainers through local gyms and health clubs, or in the phone book.

All physical activity, be it gardening, walking, biking, hiking, swimming or strengthening exercises, is important for maintaining independence and function as you age. Regular physical activity also decreases the risk for developing various chronic diseases, including heart disease, arthritis and osteoporosis. However, the best way to maintain bone and muscle mass and cardiovascular function is to do a combination of activities that includes both strength training and aerobic exercise.

Eating and drinking season is coming at the corner. Walk more after eating and drinking. It’s easy 1000 calorie taking in, 1000 calorie taking out. And your weight never changed.

Raw food or cooked food?

 Certainly, there are benefits to consuming plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. These foods supply us with high nutrient levels and are generally low in calories too. Eating lots of raw foods is a key feature of an anti-cancer diet style and a long life. Raw vegetables are dramatically low in calories and we probably only absorb about 50 calories a pound from raw vegetables.

And we have to eat live food. For instance, brown rice is better than white rice, same as wheat bread is better than white bread. Fish is also same. Raw fish is better than cooked fish. So, eating sashimi or sushi is very reasonable thing. Sashimi is just like fresh vegetable salad right?

Eating raw food is necessary for good health and is an important feature of a healthy diet. Baking, frying, barbecuing and other high heat cooking methods that brown and damage food form acrylamide, which is potentially carcinogenic. Browning and other high heat cooking methods should be avoided. Cooking techniques like steaming vegetables, stewing foods in a pressure cooker and soup making, do not have these drawbacks. They do not brown foods or form acrylamide.

Are Brown Eggs Really Healthier Than White Eggs?

 

Brown eggs and white eggs are, nutritionally at least, exactly same: about 70 calories, 6 grams of protein, and a generous helping of B vitamins.

So why the different hues? “White-feathered chickens lay white eggs. Brown feather chickens lay brown eggs. It’s as simple as that,”

Chances are that brown eggs owe their superior health reputation to their inflated price tag. But brown eggs cost more than white eggs simply because they cost more to produce. Brown chickens are larger than their white cousins, so they eat more food, which in turn costs farmers more. And guess who pays for that? You.

I tried to close the business on February 20th but changed to at the end of February because of the new place opening will delay.

 

Eat Salmons ski for your good skin.

Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function. In fact, infants who do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids from their mothers during pregnancy are at risk for developing vision and nerve problems.

Salmon skin is 100% made from collagen, It is better than pig collagen, must eat salmon skin at sushi restaurants. Right?

Closing TAKA

Some people know this. We need to evacuate at the end of February 2016. I can say the last business day is around 20th.

And I found a good location in Sandy Springs. It is just north of Buckhead and current customers can come this location. It is about 10 minutes from current location.

I will sign the lease very soon, maybe. And the opening date will be in March. I gave up to move to Hawaii and stay here for a while.

 

Coca-Cola and Pepsi contribute to nearly 200,000 deaths every year

Sugary drinks such as Coke and Pepsi kill nearly 200,000 people per year worldwide, according to a study conducted by researchers from Tufts University and published in the journal Circulation.

The numbers are based on prior studies showing that sugar consumption can lead to heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

“Many countries in the world have a significant number of deaths occurring from a single dietary factor – sugar-sweetened beverages,” senior author Dariush Mozaffarian said.

“It should be a global priority to substantially reduce or eliminate sugar-sweetened beverages from the diet,”

The study’s abstract was previously presented at the American Heart Association Council on Epidemiology and Prevention in 2013.

The study is the first to take a detailed look at the global health impact of consuming beverages sweetened with sugar. It focused exclusively on any sodas, fruit drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks, teas or homemade drinks sweetened with some form of sugar and containing at least 50 calories per 8-ounce serving. Due to its different nutrient content, 100 percent fruit juice (not artificially sweetened) was excluded from the study.

The researchers used 62 separate dietary surveys conducted on a total of 611,971 people in 51 countries between 1980 and 2010 to estimate sugar consumption country-by-country. They combined this with data on how available sugar is in 187 different countries, in order to calculate variation in sugar consumption both between and within countries.

Drawing on prior studies delineating the health effects of consuming sugar-sweetened beverages, the researchers determined the effect that the sugar consumption they had calculated would have on death rates from cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. They concluded that in 2010 alone, sugar-sweetened beverages killed 6,450 people from cancer, 45,000 from cardiovascular disease and 133,000 from diabetes, for a total of nearly 185,000 deaths.

Although 76 percent of the deaths from sugar-sweetened drinks occurred in middle- and low-income countries, the United States came in second among the 20 most populous countries in terms of per-capita deaths, at 125 per million adults. It was surpassed only by Mexico, which had 405 deaths per million adults.

My opinion is like this. It is not only Coke or Pepsi but the word of “Too Much” is the key. We can drink Coke but 1 can a day is fine. Not large bottle or not 3-4 cans a day. Same as anything like Alcohol, Ice cream, French fry, Pizza, Steak, Mush Potato and more. American’s over eating habit is really bad. It is same as sushi. We can make money if you eat a lot. But I feel bad for your health. Portion problem is for all American people. Just think of it. “ Your body is not hungry, your brain is hungry.” This is my word. TAKA
