Leg Cramps?

After noticing the wonderful health benefits of changing the way we eat, we sometimes can look at some of our health issues and wonder if there is a magical food to add or remove which will help heal us.

I learned this tip about leg cramps from Dr. Michael Klaper. If you are suffering from leg cramps, you may find this helpful. 

If legs cramp while in bed, be sure that your covers are not tucked in as it can hold your foot in prone position creating a cramp. Yup, that’s it! It has helped many of my clients and I hope that you will find it helpful too.

Dr. Klaper has so much helpful information! Check out one of Dr. Klaper’s videos!

Fitness and Exercise, Need to know

Is Exercise Necessary?

Before I changed over to this lifestyle, I began with a Zumba DVD. I barely made it through the beginner version. Over time, as I transitioned to this way of eating, Zumba was not challenging enough (if you don’t break a sweat, you are not working).

I now rotate through DVD’s like P90X, P90X2, Jillian Michaels, etc. I struggle with finding DVD’s which match my level of fitness and also keeping it interesting and new. If I do not exercise every day, I risk eliminating it totally. I rotate through weight lifting, cardio and yoga. I average 45 minutes of DVD workouts, 30 minutes walking the dog and of course house cleaning and yard work too.

If you need group support, join a local class in a community center or health club. There are so many types of classes available; like yoga, weight training etc. Many of these classes have various levels from things like beginner chair yoga to advanced boot camp.

I think the point of the 90 minutes is that we sit too much. If you don’t have access to a community center, health club or DVD’s, you can deep clean your house, wash and vacuum your car, walk your dog, etc. If possible, don’t sit for more than an hour.
