91 Percent of Teens don’t Get Recommended Daily Exercise says Study – Everyday Diabetes

91 Percent of Teens don’t Get Recommended Daily Exercise says Study

Each of the subjects wore an accelerometer device that tracked how much they moved during a week. Apparently it wasn’t much.

SHARE

A new study says 91 percent of United States high school students are not getting the recommended amount of exercise. What’s worse, is the research suggest that the lack of fitness related activities may well follow them into adulthood, Medical Xpress reported.

Dr. Kaigang Li, a Colorado State University assistant professor for the department of health and exercise science led the study that followed 561 sophomores in 44 high schools over the course of four years.

This study really confirms the low levels of physical activity in adolescents, which appear to be maintained over time as they transition into young adulthood.

Each of the subjects wore an accelerometer device that tracked how much they moved during a week.

Based on the Center for Disease control recommendations that adolescents get at least 60 minutes exercise every day, only 9 percent of the students studied did. The findings were published online in Pediatrics. 

“This study really confirms the low levels of physical activity in adolescents, which appear to be maintained over time as they transition into young adulthood,” Peter Katzmarzyk, a professor at Louisiana State University’s Pennington Biomedical Research Center, told Medical Xpress.

“Any way that we can increase physical activity levels in adolescence might translate into maintaining higher levels of physical activity in young adulthood,” Dr. Li said. “So physical education in high school is certainly an important outlet for this.”

However, according to the CDC, only 29 percent of high school students participated in a daily physical education class in 2013. In 1991, it was 42 percent, and in 1995 the figure went down to 25 percent.

Li said colleges and communities can do more to promote exercise among their residents. “Communities could create more walkable environments, public parks, bike trails, or low-cost or free exercise programs,” Li told Medical Xpress.

Check out These Great Tips for Staying Active with Diabetes – Everyday Diabetes

Check out These Great Tips for Staying Active with Diabetes

SHARE

Here are some great tips on being active with diabetes. It doesn’t take much, just determination and consistency and the next thing you know, you’re active! And feeling better all the while.

Ok? Let’s get to it!


How Much Activity?

Start by doing what you can do, and then look for ways to do more until you reach 150 minutes a week of activity. Find the time that works best for you to add up to 150
minutes.

For example:

  • 30 minutes at one time five times a week.
  • 15 minutes at a time 10 times a week.
  • 10 minutes at a time several times a day.

Do It Your Way

  • Brisk walking is a great way to be active.
  • Try dancing, gardening, following a video, or taking some sort of class.
  • Be active with a friend or family member.
  • Start with 10 minutes a day and build up over time.

Be Safe

  • Check your blood sugar before you are physically active.
  • Carry a snack with you in case your blood sugar goes too low.
  • Carry identification that says you have diabetes.
  • Wear shoes that fit well and are made for the kind of activity you do.
  • Check your feet every day. Call your doctor or nurse if a cut, sore, blister, or bruise on your feet or toes does not go away after 2 days.

Ask Your Doctor or Nurse

  • What physical activities are safe for me?
  • Are there any special things I need to do to protect my feet?
  • Do I need to make any changes in my medicines before I raise my level of physical activity?
  • Do I need to eat a snack before I’m active?

This helpful list was put together by The Centers for Disease Control. You can visit them at: www.cdc.gov

Jennifer Lopez Dishes up Some Fitness Secrets for Staying Healthy – Everyday Diabetes

Jennifer Lopez Dishes up Some Fitness Secrets for Staying Healthy

SHARE

With a successful career spanning two decades, the proud mother of two children and still working harder than ever, how does Jennifer Lopez manage to stay in great shape?

Here are the highlights from her interview with Your Fitness magazine. Now you can find out for yourself.

On her diet: “I always start my day with a BodyLab TastyShake in the morning, a healthy lunch, and then another protein shake for dinner. That shake at dinner is key, because when you’re dieting it seems like you’re always your hungriest at night, so having some calorie-smart protein can help fill you up and kill those night time cravings.”

On fitness: “I love the way working out makes me feel, so I try to keep my body hydrated and well rested after every workout so I’m ready to hit it hard again the next day. I drink plenty of water, fuel my body with healthy foods and make it a priority to get eight hours of sleep a night. I also love to relax with my kids after a workout and share a healthy snack with them!”

On skincare: “Washing my face after training is essential. That helps keep my pores clean and my skin feeling healthy. Then I’ll usually put on moisturiser and sunscreen and maybe just a little make-up if I’m going out, or a moisturiser and eye cream if it’s the evening.”

You can read the full interview in the October issue.

Getting and Staying in Shape – Simple Rules to Live by – Everyday Diabetes

Getting and Staying in Shape – Simple Rules to Live by

SHARE

One of the hardest things about exercising is exercising. As silly as that might sound, it’s true. Actually getting out there and doing it, taking that first step, is often the most difficult one of all.

Whatever your targets are, sticking to these simple rules will help you achieve your smart fitness goals. Go for it!


Intensity over Duration

Just because you’ve been in the gym for 2 hours doesn’t mean you’ve had an effective workout. Interval training will burn those extra calories in a shorter space of time. Don’t fool yourself, if you’re reading a magazine on the treadmill or flicking through newspapers on a bike (I have seen this plenty of times before), you are definitely not working hard enough. If you take your training seriously, you can’t multi-task.

Weight training is key

The more muscle you have the more calories you’ll burn. It is as simple as that. Ladies, did you say: “I don’t want to bulk up”?  You won’t… Women simply do not have the testosterone levels to sustain muscle gain as fast as men. If still skeptical, just adapt higher reps and lighter weights to increase tone and shape. Gents, heavier weights and fewer reps for you to increase size, adapt your reps, weights and rest periods between sets.

Fitness body and mind Diabetes - Everyday DiabetesTry to use your body as a whole

Total body weight exercises, functional training and multi-dimensional cross-fit type routines will work multiple areas at the same time whilst integrating the core. Important to jack-up your heart rate and muscle burn in your training. Instead of doing an old-school static lunge, incorporate forward and backward-stepping alternating lunge (sagittal plane) by adding a torso rotation twist whilst holding a weighted medicine ball to train the transverse plane at once.

Stretch!

Stretching will ensure a balanced body and mind, whilst relieving any aches and pains following your high intensity workout. I used to have no time for it, but hot yoga is now my favorite way to challenge my strength, core stability, flexibility and endurance, testing my focus and pain threshold in a different dimension yet somehow I manage to walk out feeling totally de-stressed and light-weight every time.

Eat to lose weight

Eating little but often will keep your metabolism high. Something wholesome, natural, unprocessed, ‘paleo’ and healthy of course. Avoid anything nasty including refined carbos, oils, deep-fried, sugars, salts, sauces and dressings. Avoid eating out of a packet (unless they are natural wholegrains such as quinoa, barley, brown rice, old-fashion rolled-oats, they are usually processed food). Each time you feel ‘peckish’, drinking something nutritional (such as protein shakes, skim milk, low-fat soy-milk, fresh vegetable juices) will ensure that you stay well hydrated and those pounds will eventually come off.

Sticking to these very simple rules will give you a beautiful body, inside and out.

5 ‘Incidental Exercises’ – Small Effective Ways to Add Fitness to Your Day – Everyday Diabetes

5 ‘Incidental Exercises’ – Small Effective Ways to Add Fitness to Your Day

SHARE
Running Stairs great exercise

Ok so I am going to let you in on some of my secrets: I am an ‘incidental exercise’ fanatic, and I am a fan of incorporating small, short but effective exercises into as many parts of the day as possible. These types of simple and quick exercises can seriously add up throughout the day to form an overall workout. My friends and family have long ago gave up frowning and giving me ‘crazy person’ looks!

Let me give some examples…

1. Rather than staring at yourself mindlessly in the mirror whilst brushing your teeth, start doing 10 rear or side leg raises whilst bracing your core. You can also do 10 oblique side bends on each side whilst washing your hands each time you go to the bathroom. (Almost kicked my friend Tiff when we stayed in Macau together. Sorry girl!)

2. When you wake up in the morning, roll onto your stomach and do 2 sets of 50 back extensions, then onto your back again for some short sets of ‘bicycle’ crunches.

3. Buy yourself a couple of cheap 10lb dumbbells, and while watching your favourite TV program or movie at home start doing a few front and side lateral raises to slowly but surely tone your shoulders.

4. Take the stairs once a day, as opposed to the escalator.

5. Get off one or two stops before your usual bus or subway stop to increase walking.

The half to one minute it takes to do some leg raises or back extensions is over in an instant – after 3 months, you will have formed solid habits which will gradually build and tone muscle and reduce fat in those hard to reach areas!

Fitness Trainers Gain 60 Lbs. and Drop it Again to Show How Hard it is to Lose Weight – Everyday Diabetes

Fitness Trainers Gain 60 Lbs. and Drop it Again to Show How Hard it is to Lose Weight

SHARE

Fitness trainers, and husband and wife, Sharny and Julius Kieser, wanted to show that after gaining weight that they could gain it back and lost it again. So they purposely gained 60 lbs.

Sound strange?

According to the Queensland, Australia-based fitness experts had already packed on a couple of pounds after the birth of their fifth child, “We just let go with our eating. Let the food take us wherever it wanted to go,” said Sharny, 36, told People Magazine.

According to the article:

By May, about three months after Magnus’ birth, the couple had started the slow process of losing the weight they’d gained, but had a late-night revelation.

“We were scrolling through Facebook and looking at all the fitness people and thinking, ‘What do they know about being fat, about being parents, about being addicted to food.’ ” she says. “We were just about to start losing weight quietly again, so our followers didn’t know we’d gotten to this state. Then we remembered why we had gotten into fitness in the first place. We wanted to be completely transparent.”

“We are not fitness models, we are just a mum and a dad who use fitness as a way to connect with each other and spend time with our kids. By hiding the fact that we were getting fat, we were being dishonest. We were perpetrating a myth that fitness is a permanent state and is easy.”

Exercise Excuses – 7 Ways to Talk Yourself Out of Working Out – Everyday Diabetes

Exercise Excuses – 7 Ways to Talk Yourself Out of Working Out

SHARE
As the nights draw in, it’s easy for our good exercise intentions to collapse by the fireside. But if you’re tempted to go into winter hibernation mode, remind yourself that exercise is more – not less – important for our health than in the summer as it helps wake up sluggish systems. So here’s how to sweep aside those exercise excuses.

It’s cold outside

The first excuse that comes to lack-lustre fitness wannabes at this time of year is… the weather. The reality? A bit of fog and drizzle needn’t put you off your stride. All you need is the right kit (see below) and a bit of common sense.

Read More: Is a Good Breakfast Essential?

Adjust your route or timing if you need to, and embrace what­ever sen­sory expe­ri­ences stem from the changes in season. If you’re a runner or a cyclist, plan your route in well-lit areas and if icy, on well gritted paths. Ensure you only take safe and familiar routes after dark and start to see the misty mornings and changing light as a bonus of your daily workout.

I haven’t got the right kit

Leaky waterproofs, worn out running shoes or tires that slip in the mud are not exactly going to inspire you to head out of the front door in unseasonal weather.

The only person to compare yourself to is you. Everyone has their own goals and progress rate – are you faster, stronger, fitter, healthier than you were last week, or month?

Invest in the right kit for the weather – be it warm, rainproof and  breathable clothing, supporting footwear or a bike that is guaranteed to cope with muddy paths. Get your kit ready the night before so there are no excuses. Knowing you’ve got all you need to stay dry and comfortable, and support your fitness goals, is guaranteed to get you off to a good start.

I’m too tired

It’s the time of year when our energy levels dip. So if you always promise yourself you’ll go for a post-work run, but end up collapsed on the sofa feeling exhausted, rethink your timing. Likewise if you end up pressing snooze more times than you end up heading out for a pre-work swim, change things around and maybe take a break mid-day. Work your workout to your advantage; an early morning burst can really wake you up for the day, whereas a lunchtime class can boost your energy levels for the rest of the afternoon.

Running Stairs great exerciseI’m not good enough

A sure fire way to kill your enthusiasm for exercise is to compare your progress with a friend, or the person lapping you in the pool. Who cares if they can swim/run/ride a mile faster than you. The only person to compare yourself to is you. Everyone has their own goals and progress rate – are you faster, stronger, fitter, healthier than you were last week, or month? If the answer is yes then keep doing what you’re doing because you’re on the right track to fitness success. And if you miss the occasional workout – inevitable as we come up to the festive season – don’t beat yourself up. Everyone lapses sometimes – remember, it’s your overall progress that counts.

It hurts!

At some point in your quest to improved fitness, you may have pains and even injuries. To reduce your chance of injury, particularly in cold weather, you need a good warm-up routine – you may even find it helpful to warm up before going outside. Combining this with some post workout stretches will help minimise injuries, as will the right kit (especially trainers if you’re a runner).

Exercising purely to see the scales go down is a recipe for failure – exercise alone is not actually that effective for weight-loss.

If you do get an injury – don’t panic! There’s still plenty you can do to keep your fitness levels up. See a doctor and a physio, if necessary, and keep active in some other way. Injured your knee or ankle? Try some upper-body strength training, gentle walking, or some low impact cardio.

It’s not doing any good

Exercising purely to see the scales go down is a recipe for failure – exercise alone is not actually that effective for weight-loss. That said, exercise helps reduce stress (including our cortisol levels, which when raised can lead to weight gain around the waist, a key contributor to metabolic syndrome/type-2 diabetes). It also has benefits for our mood (endorphins released when we exercise are known as ‘happy hormones’ and as fitness fans will know, they’re rather addictive!).

Read More: Crawling Around on the Floor for Better Fitness?

Then there’s the boost to our self-confidence, both from the achievement and seeing our body tone up – which only encourages us to look after ourselves more. All things that can help us through the winter season. When you look at exercise in this way it gives you a much more holistic view of the benefits, which should keep you motivated and the excuses at bay!

I can’t afford it

Yes, swanky gym memberships, personal trainers and weekend bootcamps can be prohibitively expensive, but with a trip to your local pool costing around the same as a fast-food coffee and cake, or a couple of drinks at the pub, it’s all about prioritising what you invest your budget in.

Placing value on getting daily exercise will help you get creative as to how you get active. Instead of meeting friends for a drink, why not meet them for a walk or a cycle instead? Putting one foot in front of the other, whatever your pace, costs nothing – in fact, if you ditch the car and walk or cycle to work getting fit could even save you money. Especially good news coming up to Christmas, as it can be such an expensive time of year. You might even think about putting some health and fitness items on your Christmas list – or as the perfect gift for others.

An Interview with Daniel Puddick – Founder of Sundried Activewear – Everyday Diabetes

An Interview with Daniel Puddick – Founder of Sundried Activewear

Sundried is a recently-launched ethically and environmentally conscious collection of activewear designed and tested by top triathletes.

SHARE

What if you could feel completely confident that the product you’re using is ethically made while at the same time feel satisfied with its performance?

That’s what Daniel Puddick has set out to do with the founding of Sundried activewear.

Puddick, a personal trainer, triathlete and father, was determined to build a company that not only produced quality activewear, but one that his children could one day view with pride.

“I think there aren’t many brands who can say they’re proud of how their products have come to market.”

Every piece of Sundried activewear comes with a special tracking code on the label that allows consumers to explore the whole journey of the garment through the production process –ensuring that the highest ethical and environmental standards are adhered to along the way.

Not only is Sundried an ethically and environmentally conscious brand, its collection of activewear was conceived by some of the world’s best designers, from brands like LuluLemon Athletica and Sweaty Betty.

Everyday Diabetes Magazine recently spoke with Daniel Puddick about this unique concept in socially conscious, high quality clothing.


Can you tell us a little about your background and how Sundried got started?

After successfully selling my first business The Sunglasses Shop when it was the biggest online sunglasses retailer in Europe, I knew my next venture would have to be something good.It had to be something I was (and am) personally into and it has to have strong ethical values.

Being a parent makes you think about the bigger picture for the world, so business for me now is more than just creating a financially successful brand. I gathered the best in the business and told them I wanted premium ethical activewear that was stylish and functional, flash forward to now and we have just successfully overfunded for our second and third collections on Crowdcube, which will launch next year.

Sundried Activewear

The driving force behind Sundried is ethical activewear. Can you talk about what that means?

How can we call ourselves ethical activewear, without taking care of our staff throughout the supply chain? For us being ethical means being as good to the environment as possible, whilst protecting our staff. We regularly visit our factory in Portugal and make a donation to Water for Kids with every Sundried purchase. To me, it’s very much about sharing my success with those less fortunate and helping to keep the planet around for my kids and grandkids!

How are the ethical standards benchmarked and monitored for compliance?

We partnered with the Low Carbon Innovation Fund who have strict polices on how our clothing is produced, which we adhere to. We then also have our Product Development and Sourcing Expert who regularly visits our factories to ensure everything is running as it should be.

Sundried ActivewearThe company description talks about having a “heritage in triathlon and outdoor pursuits.” Tell us about that and what sort of customer Sundried is aimed towards.

Sundried is aimed at those of us who grab the chance to be active wherever we find it. Whether it’s competing in a triathlon, to cycling back from the office. Our first collection was designed to be transitional, so you can work and play in it. I’m excited for our further collections as we are now going to explore competitive Tri gear. Sundried is for those who want to look and feel great whilst exercising, knowing they are also doing something good for the environment and those who are less fortunate.

What is it about Sundried that makes it a better choice than other brands of activewear?

I think there aren’t many brands who can say they’re proud of how their products have come to market, we use the finest fabrics with the latest technologies and create our products in a way you can be proud of.

What are you most excited about looking to the future of your new venture?

It’s all very exciting, but I can’t wait for my children to grow up and be proud of the brand Sundried becomes.

Mary Helen Bowers

@balletbeautiful

Give ballet a shot. Natalie Portman got her sleek and slim body in the movie “Black Swan” by the training with Bowers, a professional ballet dancer from New York. If you’re tired of the normal treadmills and stairclimbers, ballet will work muscles you never knew you even had. Bowers now works with celebrities such as Lily Aldridge and Zooey Deschanel, and runs a full time ballet fitness program called Ballet Beautiful.

Anna Kaiser

If you want a burning cardio workout that doesn’t include running, get on Kaiser’s feed now. This legend has created workouts that completely focus on lively dancing that even includes yoga. She has a brand of her own and owns a studio called AKT in Motion. This is not your typical ‘zumba party.’ Kaiser has trained Shakira, Kelly Ripa, and Sofia Vergara.

David Kirsch

@davidkirsch 

A PHOTO POSTED BY DAVID KIRSCH (@DAVIDKIRSCH) ON

If you want a brand spankin’ new butt that’s not artificial, this is your go-to guy. His alias as “the butt guy” has earned him a reputation with many stars that simply have an excellent backside. Kirsch trains many celebrities looking for a ‘lift’ such as Liv Tyler and Kate Upton. His instagram features meal plans, fitspiration quotes, and hot workouts.

Justin Gelband

@modelfit

A PHOTO POSTED BY MODELFIT (@MODELFIT) ON

This man has made it big working with some of the top fashion models in the industry, including some of the hottest Victoria’s Secret Angels. He trains them with high intensity workouts that are far from boring –including jumping on trampolines. Gelband also incorporates resistant band workouts and light weights to sculpt toned muscles. He co-founded the program ModelFIT and works with big names like Candice Swanepoel and Karlie Kloss to get them runway-ready.

Ashley Borden

@ashleybordenfitness 

Her name is one of the most popular amongst the biggest stars, including Ryan Reynold’s, who before lighting up the screen in Deadpool ruled as “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2010.

You can check out her specialized techniques and follow her for great inspiration to become fit and look cute while doing it.

Mark Langowski

@bodybymarkwellness

This self-made trainer made his mark with the Body by Mark program. A lot of his training is for clients who have a very tight schedule and routine, and can only go to the gym for short increments of time. Since his workouts are made for the super busy, they are always very high intensity –pushing you to the max. He works with the popular Ginger Zee (weather anchor for Good Morning America). If you want to fit in that tiny tight dress but your work is extremely demanding, check out some of his signature plans.

Holly Perkins

@hollyperkins

This tough trainer who still maintains a delicate look is calling your name if you want to lift heavy weights and strength-train. She inspires both men and women to sculpt their bodies and compete in bodybuilding challenges.

Gunnar Peterson

@gunnarfitness 

Another man for keeping some famous butts their most firm and round, Peterson has trained the Kardashian women, Ciara, and Jennifer Lopez.

He has over 20 years of fitness expertise under his belt, and is always coming up with the most interesting ways to keep in shape!

Astrid Swan 

@astrid_swan 

A PHOTO POSTED BY ASTRID SWAN (@ASTRID_SWAN) ON

Remember when Justin Bieber went from skinny 16-year-old to a buff and a sculpted young man? Yeah, you can thank Danny for that. This man is a two-time world boxing champion and his fitness is based around just that. His intense workouts circle around letting your anger out and learning how to punch and kick your way to a toned bod. Not only has he given more people the ‘Bieber Fever’- he has also worked with Hilary Swank and Jessica Simpson. Discover your ‘inner beast’ by simply looking at his personal pics.
