Ok people I am here to assist in any way I can. I have just returned from a 4 day intense conference and will be sharing new info about weight loss and how our diet, environment, relationships and stress effect our ability to lose weight.

If you are stressed it makes it difficult to lose weight. However certain nutrients and phytonutrients help the body resist the effects of stress better.

One of the best ways to stop the negative effects of stress is exercise. But you have to do it for at least 20 minutes for the effetcs to happen. It doesn't have to be vigerous. Approaching 20 minutes of continuous exercise the body begins to shut down the cortisol cascade which is a major stress hormone. Chronic cortisol release signals fat storage around the mid-section and creates chronic inflammation.

Let's be real, exercising 3 times a week isn't going to be cut it.

The best exercises for weight loss are aerobic exercies like walking and weight bearing exercises. Begin slowly and always get your doctors approval before changing your diet and beginning an exercise program.

A bad diet supplemented is still a bad diet.

Your NutriBullet is a great tool that can superchrge your nutrient intake!

Start blasting off the fat!!

Healthy wishes

Out of curiosity Wally, what conference did you attend? Looking forward to some new ideas and research :) Thanks!
Here it is it was very intensive 5 classes a day some were 1.5 hours some were 3 hour classes. Speakers were very qualified in their respective fields. Lots of notes, now just digesting them and extracting the info into my brain. You know how it goes. The AFPA is unique in their field in that they are very pro plant based nutrition and lifestyle. The CEO is a great guy. I usually do at least one a year and certainly have to do them to keep CEU's up. http://www.afpafitness.com/_pdf/BJ2013_Web%20copy.pdf Thanks Wally

Thank you Wally! I'll look into some of the speakers. I could discuss, read, and learn about health and nutrition all day :)
Me too, my wife gets tired of hearing me run on an on sometimes! She is a good sport for putting up with me. However she is incredibly grateful for the knowledge because it brought her from being disabled with severe fibro to no more fibro problems. I just can't get enough info or quit talking about nutrition and fitness. Thanks Wally
