    Curtis Harwell Discusses Do You Really Want To Be a Vegetarian?

    in Fitness

    To eat meat, or not to eat meat...This is the question on many people's mind. The negative impact of animal foods on health, the damage associated with animal foods and the environment, religious beliefs, and the desire to protect and respect animals are some of the reasons for the increase in the number of people consuming vegetarian diets. Many people express an interest in consuming a vegetarian diet but don't do so because they are unsure of how to do it or are not ready to give up meat. Fortunately, there are options and lots of great resources available to help. The key to making this diet work for you is to understand what nutrients you are missing from the foods that you are not consuming and to learn how to balance your meals without these foods.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses The Top Fitness Myths Pepetuated In The Gym Everyday

    in Fitness

    Think you know the facts about getting fit? You may be surprised to learn how many are really fiction.


    It's easy to fall into the trap: A workout buddy passes along an exercise tip, and then you pass it on to several folks you know. Your kid’s coach gives you advice, and sure enough you hear the same thing from several other parents. So you figure it must be true. But experts say that in the world of fitness, myths and half-truths abound – and some of them may be keeping you and your family from getting the best and safest workout.


    "Some myths are just harmless half-truths, but many others can actually be harmful," says professional triathlete and personal coach Eric Harr, author of The Portable Personal Trainer. "They can cause frustration in working out and sometimes even lead to injury," he notes.


    One reason myths get started, says Harr, is that we all react to exercise a little differently. So what's true for one person may not be true for another.


    "In this sense you sometimes have to find your own 'exercise truths' – the things that are true for you," says Harr.


    That said, experts say there are also some fitness myths that just need busting, and the sooner the better!


    To help put you and your family on the path to a healthier, safer, and more enjoyable workout, gEt the lowdown from Curtis Harwell on what's true and what's not when it comes to exercise tips.

    Curtis Harwell Has Open Mic Friday With Questions From You The Listeners

    in Fitness

    Question #1


     What are Some of the Best Exercises to Do After Having a Baby?


    Many women are told to wait six weeks (or possibly longer) before getting back to your regular exercise program. While you are busy enjoying—and experiencing ecstasy—for the new addition to your family, getting your body back to its pre-pregnancy state can be frustrating to deal with. After delivery of your baby, begin walking as soon as possible. Walk for as long as you can, and as the weeks pass, increase the length and speed of your walks.


    After speaking to your doctor at your six week appointment (and being given the “go ahead”) incorporate a yoga class into your routine and increase strength through pelvic tilts and the supported bridge and warrior poses. Pilates is another great workout to try, as well as some light weights. Go slow, and tweak your workout if you experience any discomfort.


    Where there’s a will, there is always a way. You deserve to have the best body possible, so focus on being proactive in your approach to fitness. In no time at all, you’ll have the body you deserve!

    A Better Person to be President Is On Blog Talk Radio At 5:30pm - Curtis Clinton

    in Elections

     


    The title says it. Why? It makes sense. My place is not so different from yours, maybe a little better. We have more common ground than the others. I am not campaigning for your money, am not a Politician, will not be, will be among the best smart Commander-In-Chiefs, even protecting our military men and women. Your day to day is closer to ours and we live it with nearly similar DNA: Daily Numerous Adversities; Daily Numerous Ailments; Daily Numerous Aspirations. Yes, an unknown person has little chance to be seen by you. I know that it appears stupid to do this. It may even look more than stupid. But it’s not that stupid when you consider all the stupid things that are going on right now, that have just happened or will with politics. Please see me in a better smart light. I say things that you may not like or want to hear. But they are said for our own good. They need to be said and brought to light and right. There are some well known people running for President. I am not one of them. I am one among many, if you can understand that in all its fullness. It is surmised that when you reach the White House, things change you. Except for becoming better, I will not change the good, right, smart within me or what must and should be done. I want much better for all, even you and our cohabitant animals and our earth. The White House belongs to you, with a person of the people, ordinary if necessary and not to a Political Party. If you see it that way, could you and will you put together 120,000,000 Write-In Ballots for a Presidency being for us, with just one of us in there seeing to a better United States and for Americans of all blood types of O's, A's, B's and AB's. If that many are cast, we will not have a divided country or Congress. One willing caring for all doing person can start a better world. You can begin with such a President. This idea is for you, c2it, i am Curt Clinton, c2…

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why To Never Use a FAT Trainer or Coach Ever

    in Fitness

    I can speak from a client’s perspective & fitness professional. I have used trainers over the years and if they did not look like they were fit, I felt that they could not get me there. I wanted someone who not only talked a good game–but took the time to put their fitness first. In the back of mind I am thinking, “how can you motivate me when you’re not motived enough to train yourself?” Fitness professionals that were holding some excess body fat seemed like hypocrites. How can you tell me this move will get you a six pack when you dealing with a 1.5 pack?


    Now that I am in the business as a studio owner & fitness consultant, I am even more aware of the competitiveness of our industry. With more people entering the health & fitness industry everyday, it makes good sense to stay on top of your game. My clients always say, “you don’t need to lose any weight–you look great.” I always appreciate the compliments but know there is always another trainer out there vying for their business. So on that note, I’ll be keeping my appointment with the gym today


    Bottom line, being skilled & knowledgeable can’t pay bills if no one calls you back. What do you think–should a trainer be fit to give fitness advice?

    Curtis Harwell Discusses What Happens To Your Brain and Body When You Eat

    in Fitness

    Most of us know that junk food is unhealthy. We know that poor nutrition is related to heart problems, high blood pressure, and a host of other health ailments. You might even know that studies show that eating junk food has been linked to increases in depression.


    But if it’s so bad for us, why do we keep doing it?


    There is an answer. And the science behind it will surprise you.


    Why We Crave Junk Food


    Steven Witherly is a food scientist who has spent the last 20 years studying what makes certain foods more addictive (and tasty) than others. Much of the science that follows is from his excellent report, Why Humans Like Junk Food.


    According to Witherly, when you eat tasty food, there are two factors that make the experience pleasurable.


    First, there is the sensation of eating the food. This includes what it tastes like (salty, sweet, umami, etc.), what it smells like, and how it feels in your mouth. This last quality — known as “orosensation” — can be particularly important. Food companies will spend millions of dollars to discover the most satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip. Their scientists will test for the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the sensation that your brain associates with a particular food or drink.


    The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food — the blend of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that it contains. In the case of junk food, food manufacturers are looking for a perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain and gets you coming back for more.
