Holiday Calories

Let's face the beast of Holiday Weight Gain Now! Start your program BEFORE The New Year. Click Here and you might be even leaner this Holiday Season -Nate
                        AthletesThe Fat Burning WorkoutPolice, Fire, Military

Q: Sometimes caloric intake goes up during the holidays. What are the best ways to combat the inevitable?
A: You figure it takes an extra 500 calories a day for a week to gain one pound. Try and have some days where you compensate for the days you overeat. During the holiday season you don't have to overeat every day. What people should keep in mind is that they're going to maintain their normal eating pattern during the holiday season but allow themselves a couple of treats a week. You don't have to have this mentality that it's the holiday season so you're going to overeat every day. You have to go into the holidays saying you're going to be in control, sticking with your normal eating pattern. You can even calorie bank.
What I do a couple of times a week is eat a light dinner so I know if I'm going to a party on Friday and Saturday nights, I've saved up some extra calories so I can have a couple of drinks or eat extra treats. Be careful a few days a week and do some extra exercise to help compensate. The main thing is the whole mindset, that you don't give yourself permission to overeat all the time just because it's the holiday season.
We all have bad days, and if you have a couple of bad days in a row, you just have to start fresh. You can't beat yourself up over these indulgences. So many times people have a couple of bad days and they feel totally out of control, and they just keep binging. You need to say, "Okay, I had a couple of bad days, I'll get back on track tomorrow." Overeating a couple of chocolates is not the end of the world, but if you do it everyday then it will be. What's important is forgiving yourself, not beating yourself up, and just starting fresh.

Burinato and Dimante Headline ECC Women’s Tennis All-Conference Awards

Central Islip, N.Y. - Senior Sara Burinato (Barcelona, Spain) from New York Institute of Technology has been named the ECC Women’s Tennis Player of Year, while University of the District of Columbia's Laura Dimante (Riga, Latvia) took home the Rookie of the Year honor, as voted upon by the conference’s coaches.

Burinato, a four-time ECC All-Conference First Team selection and Preseason Player of the Year, earns the second major honor of her career after winning the Rookie of the Year award as a freshman. For the season, she has posted a combined overall record of 24-3 between singles and doubles play. Her record in ECC play is even more impressive, tallying a perfect 8-0 mark in both singles and doubles mostly at the No. 1 position.

Dimante earns the honor of the conference's top rookie after putting together a standout debut season in the nation's capital. She was the only freshman in the ECC who played more than five matches to post a winning record, compiling a 7-3 overall record in both singles and doubles against Division II competition. In ECC play, she accumulated an identical record of 6-2 in both singles at the No. 3 flight and doubles split between the No. 1 and No. 2 flights.

Alan Nagel of Queens College has been tabbed as the ECC Women’s Tennis Coach of the Year by his peers. This marks the 10th time in his 36th seasons leading the Knights and second straight season that he has been named the conference's Coach of the Year. Nagel led the squad to the second seed in the ECC Women’s Tennis Championship with a 7-1 conference record and a 9-1 overall mark in dual matches.

Dirty Little Chemo Secret Exposed

by Andrew Scholberg

This is the first of two reports about the 2014 Cancer Control Society Convention and Doctors’ Symposium, held over Labor Day weekend at the Sheraton Universal Hotel, Universal City, California
One of the most compelling speakers at the Cancer Control Society’s 2014 Doctors’ Symposium was Dr. Bradford Weeks, M.D., from Clinton, Washington. He spoke on “Inflammation and Cancer.”
Dr. Weeks wasted no time exposing a dirty little secret about chemotherapy: even if chemo shrinks a patient’s tumors, the shrinkage is just about irrelevant to the patient’s survival. This will come as a surprise to a lot of cancer patients who break out the champagne on news their tumor has gotten smaller. You need to know what’s really going on. . .

Sweating and fat loss.

Don't sweat the sweat. Its good to sweat mind you, but really all that means is that your body temperature is rising. Not an indicator of fat loss.  -Nate
Many people think that when they sweat while they're working out they're losing fat. It's not true. When you sweat during your workout you're losing water. If you weigh yourself before your workout and then again afterwards, the difference between the two is water weight, not fat weight.
How much fat you "lose" during exercise depends on several factors. These include fitness level, body mass, the duration and intensity of your workout, and when you ate your last meal. Wearing plastic pants or a fleece sweat suit won't make you lose fat weight more quickly than if you dress comfortably. Wearing excessive clothing during exercise may interfere with the body's ability to cool itself and result in mild to severe heat illness.
VIDEO Reveals SECRETS to Transform Your Body Faster
Another common myth about sweating is that it rids the body of toxins. Sweat is nothing more than water, salts, and ureas. The body isn't detoxified when it sweats; the only thing it gets rid of is water and a few salts.
Your ability to sweat is not a measure of your fitness. Sweating is nothing more than the most efficient factor in your body's temperature regulation ability. Some people sweat more than others.
The most effective way for you to keep your "sweat mechanism" healthy is to drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise. Then you don't have to worry about overheating, dehydrating and feeling awful after you work out!

Tendons, Ligaments And Bones

Remember when you strengthen muscle, you also have the opportunity to strengthen connective tissue. Thus, as you are getting stronger, you are also reducing the chance of injury.  -Nate
At both ends of every muscle, the fascia covering the muscle tapers to form a strong, rope-like length of connective tissue called a tendon, which is connected directly to one of your bones. One end, which connects to a relatively unmoving skeletal part, is the origin of the muscle. The point where it's attached to a moving bone is the insertion of the muscle. (The bicep's insertion is in the forearm, near the elbow.)

When a muscle contracts, it pulls its origin and insertion closer together. Often a muscle is attached to two adjacent bones whose ends are joined together in a closed, fluid-filled capsule known as a joint (your knees, elbows, shoulders and knuckles are all examples of joints). Contraction of the muscle creates movement around the joint, allowing the pushing and pulling motions that make up physical movement.

Most often, this movement involves a shortening of the involved muscles, such as when you lift a heavy weight off the ground. This is called a concentric contraction. If the opposing force is greater than the muscle force however, the muscle may actually lengthen as it works to contract. For example, when you lower a heavy weight down to the floor, your bicep muscle lengthens even though it's tensing. This is called an eccentric contraction. Finally, if the muscle doesn't change length at all during the contraction, when you push against a stationary wall, for instance, the result is an isometric contraction.
Other types of connective tissue also help to create smooth, controlled movements. Ligaments are tough, elastic bands that connect the bones together and help stabilize a joint. The best way to think of ligaments is as tethers that hold the bones together at the joint. The ligaments help guide how the bones move in relationship to each other. Nerve receptors in the ligaments and tendons also send information to the brain, to help regulate the intensity of muscle contractions. Fluid-filled sacs, called bursas, cushion and lubricate your tendons as they slide back and forth over your bones.

Because tendons, ligaments, bursal pads and joints all take longer to adapt to activity than muscle fibers, these connective tissues are particularly vulnerable to inflammation, tears or other injury, especially from any type of repeated movement, whether it's walking, hitting a tennis ball or typing at a word processor. Avoiding such overuse injuries is one of the keys to maintaining a lifelong exercise routine.
