    Upper body recommendation (during lower body injury)

    I do the same thing. I have anterior ankle weakness from an ankle injury five years ago. I wore unsupportive shoes for a week while walking a lot at work. This caused my ankle to give away and all of my toes bent backwards and are severely bruised/overstretched. The day after the injury i mapped...

    How do I jump again

    After a severe left ankle sprain and a broken 4th metatarsal, I lost the ability to jump on the left leg. I cannot do the power-up jumps while stepping or jump on one foot. I can jump with two feet but I do not know how to start jumping even a little bit on the left side. Any ideas?

    I am so HUNGRY!!

    Add some good carbs such as a piece of fruit, whole grain English muffin, etc. Carbs are not the enemy. The processed stuff we call food is what messes our bodies up.

    Burned Out......[emoji16]

    I would take a break from working out - but only if you want to. Movement is so important for your health. Change from 'I have to workout today" to "I want to workout today" and change your work outs from high intensity to workouts that recharge your body and mind. Leslie Sansone's 20 minutes...

    No time to workout

    dgmon: been there, done that - it will get better. You do not have to do exercise videos to stay in shape. Put the little ones in a stroller and take a walk or take the kids to a park where you and the toddler can run around freely chasing a ball. It is a lot of physical labor carrying the baby...

    question about healthy produce

    Ditto! Organic foods are a huge industry and the science is still out if they are any better than traditional foods. Even a regular apple in your diet is much better than no apple. The Internet is full of pseudo-science and opinions are stated as facts.

    Scale is not budging!

    You should keep a food journal. I always thought I am at my set point weight and my body loves to be at that weight. However, then I started tracking my calories and I realized my current weight is the cause of eating on average 3400 calories a day. I started with a body weight of 170 lbs and...

    Low Carb-High Fat

    If you add fat and/or protein to food with a high GI, it lowers the GI. Potatoes with butter have a lower GI than a plain potato, the same goes for a slice of bread with butter and slices of turkey (note that I am not talking about the typical american sandwich bread - I am talking about natural...

    Low Carb-High Fat

    I still believe, in the long run, a balanced diet which does not excludes any food group is the way to go. One cannot ignore the science of how our teeth and our digestive system are designed to process ALL food groups. - Now, highly processed human foods are a different matter - but there is...

    Low Carb-High Fat

    I eat a lot less when I eat full fats, too. One is not tempted to eat junk when you had a satisfying whole foods meal. Eating processed foods is one of the greatest risk factors for chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Many mental illnesses can be traced to chemical imbalances...
