Healthy tips for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday season (AKA eat too much, feel guilty, make a promise to lose the extra weight, give up and keep getting bigger and more unhealthy.)
Tips to losing weight from The National Weight Loss Registry
According to the Registry, most of the members reported they maintain a low calorie, low fat diet and continue with high levels of physical activity in order to lose weight and then successfully keep their weight off.
Health tip: Why am I sore after working out?
The simplest answer to the question, why am I sore after working out, would be to say that you did too much. But that's not really a good answer is it because there are a multitude of reasons why a person gets sore after working out.
The most obvious reason someone gets sore is because they aren't used to doing what they just did and their muscles are rebelling. Another reason is they may have placed too much of an emphasis on one muscle group and overdid it in the last session. On the other hand, they could have gone too long in their workout, or they haven't been working out at all before the one that induced the soreness.
Strength tip: Cooling the body for athletic performance
The development of a superior athlete takes careful forethought, innovation, dedication, planning, proper training methods, and technology. The latter, in this case, means using cooling apparel that allows higher training intensities due to the cooling effects on the athletes’ body. As will be seen in the following there is a goodly amount of research behind the use of these cooling tools.
Health tip: Excess sodium where you would least expect it.
A Canadian study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine revealed that patients ordering their meals at the hospital ended up with an average of 3,033 milligrams of sodium each day. That is 1,000 milligrams more than the recommended daily amount of 2,300 mg for a healthy adult.
Health tip: Save money, eat better and weigh less.
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer research Center in Seattle recently studied 123 overweight or obese postmenopausal females. The results of the study published in The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Diabetes listed four strategies for losing weight and keeping it off. The most important one was keeping a food journal.
Maintaining a daily food and drink journal showed a strong correlation to greater weight loss for those in the study. The women in the study who did keep one lost approximately six pounds more over the year than those who did not keep a journal.
Strength tip: Keep Cool and Work Harder
Exercising in the heat of the summer can be a challenge, but we all know that we should. Luckily, keeping cool while you work out can be easy—just grab a bottle of cold water. Literally! A recent study showed that people who used a special palm-cooling device worked out longer and lost more weight than those who didn't use the device. The device isn't available to the public, but researchers say you can get the same effect by holding a bottle of cold water during your workout. The cold water bottle keeps you from getting too hot too fast, so you can push a little harder.

Strength tip: Stretching Strength and flexibility training
Stretching and strength training go hand in hand. Start your workout with a general full body warm up then move to a dynamic upper, mid or lower torso stretch and end up with your movement specific stretch.
If you are unsure of how to make the most of your stretching exercises here is a handy twenty nine page booklet to look at and learn from. Stretching tips was written by my Australian stretching guide cohort, Brad Walker.
Stretching a the end of your strength training session helps prepare your body for the next one.
