Fitness Myth No. 5: Yoga can help with back pain.

The truth is that yoga can help with back pain, but it’s not equally good for all types. If your back pain is muscle-related, then yes, the yoga stretches and some of the positions can help. It can also help build a stronger core, which for many people is the answer to lower back pain. But, if your back problems are related other problems (such as a ruptured disc) yoga is not likely to help. What’s more, it could actually irritate the injury and cause you more pain. If you do have back pain, get your doctor’s OK before starting any type of exercise program, and we would also recommend seeing a highly accredited Doctor of Chiropractic. If you feel your core is weak, I would highly recommend our wood-chop, torso-twist and reverse wood-chop series of fit body band exercises. I have combined many core exercises into all of our band workouts and they are for all ages and fitness levels.

3 Easy Tips to Start Losing Weight Today

 

After working with thousands of clients, I realize one of the most common struggles people have with healthy nutrition and weight loss is eating more frequently throughout the day.  Skipping breakfast or only eating 1-2 times per day can lead to fatigue, sugar or salt cravings, and over-eating (especially at night).  Set yourself up for success by following my top 3 tips for healthy weight loss.

1.  Eat breakfast – Research shows consuming a high quality protein shake first thing in the morning can boost your metabolism by 25%!  My Fit Shake not only has the highest quality protein on the market, it has 6.1 grams of branched chain amino acids, 200mg of antioxidants and a full b-vitamin complex.  It’s gluten-free, soy-free, has NO artificial sweeteners, fillers or preservatives.  And, it tastes like a vanilla milkshake!

 

2.  Stop thinking of eating “meals” as sit-down, large-portion, energy-draining events!  Instead, start thinking of food in terms of small-plates, small-portions, whole food, energy-DRIVING fuel for your body!

 

3. Perfect pairing.  Let’s be honest – it would be nearly impossible to never eat a carb again for the rest of your life.  Instead, learn to eat the right time of carbs at the right time of day to leave you feeling satisfied, full of energy, and burning fat for fuel so you can finally maintain your weight loss results for a lifetime (find my perfect pairing meal planner in my Dr. DelRae Detox manual that comes with my Detox & Weight Loss System).
