For years I have used the scientifically developed Access Bar as part of my work-out regime, to burn fat, provide energy and prevent stiffness, whether I am power walking or marathon gardening. It is an amazing food product that does what it promises to do!!
It accesses the body’s stored fat, instead of the sugar in the muscles, as the primary source of energy, allowing the body to:
1. burn 2x the amount of fat during every workout,
2. eliminate lactic acid buildup, so no soreness and stiffness the next day, and
3. utilize more muscle fibers to build more muscle (which helps burn calories on an ongoing basis)
The added bonus is that it tastes like a yummy chocolate bar, a nice treat to help us be brave and stick to our exercise routine!!
Now, along with the Access Bar, we have a Simple Steps program, that helps us to melt away excess pounds, without being on a “diet” or feeling deprived! more
A key component to good health and good looks is being fit and not carrying excess body weight that puts a strain on our entire system – joints, heart, liver, kidneys – you name it, it takes its toll! Fitness and exercise have always been important to me. As a child, I ran and played outdoors daily – skipping, hopscotch, bike riding – anything to be active.
How often have you heard the expression, “I need to get my beauty sleep”? That’s no joke! To be truly healthy – mentally and physically – we need regular, deep sleep and we never truly “make up for” the sleep that we’ve lost. Here’s a link to an article that was in McLean’s magazine, recently, that really delves into the ways that lack of sleep undermines our health.
An important part of good health and good looks is being properly hydrated. We all know that our body is about 60% water and we all know that we need to drink water daily. How much is enough and are we really keeping track or are we carrying our water bottle around with us all day and feeling virtuous?
There are varying degrees of eating healthy. Just look up a few of the thousands of fitness and diet gurus available to us nowadays and you’ll get a different story about what it takes to lose weight and/or eat nutritiously. So how does the average guy or gal make sense of it all?
I’m going to simply share with you what I do – what I’ve tried over the years and where I’ve noticed the most success. I like to call this the “middle of the road” method – not too difficult, not too extreme and easy for people who are busy and “on the go”.
