High Intensity Exercise vs Aerobic Exercise

By Longevity February 18, 2013

Transcript:

Over the decades aerobic exercise has developed into a quasi-cult. But the latest science tells us that short intense bursts of exercise are more efficient at shifting our metabolism than long stretches of aerobic activity. If you change your exercise routine into four or five short intense bursts of exercise that leave you breathless, separated by three or four minutes of gentle exercise that allow you to recover, your body quickly shifts into fat burning mode. Studies show that these bursts of activity separated by gentle rest periods effectively lower your risk of diabetes, increase fat burning and enhance both sexuality and mental acuity. The great advantage is that 15 or 20 minutes of exercise in this pattern is

Alcohol Prevents Fat Burning

By Longevity February 18, 2013

Transcript:

Alcohol is a potent metabolic poison that makes you fat. While many enjoy the occasional glass of wine with dinner, or an evening cocktail, most people don’t realize the impact that this has on their weight. As long as there is any alcohol in your system your liver puts aside other tasks, such as carbohydrate metabolism to pay attention to getting rid of the alcohol. The result is that virtually every calorie that comes through the liver in any form gets rapidly turned into fat, so the liver can give its full attention to burning the alcohol. From a practical standpoint, this means that as long as you have any alcohol in your bloodstream, you are making fat rather than burning it. Over time, those few extra hours of fat

Do You Want to Make Fat or Burn Fat?

By Longevity February 18, 2013

Transcript:

Danger, evening snacks will make you fat. When you fall asleep at night your metabolism will slow to its lowest possible rate. If you had an evening snack and there’s food in your gut, digestion is going to continue throughout the night. Energy will be released and those calories need to go somewhere. Because you are burning almost nothing, the excess energy is going to be stored as fat. On the other hand, if your last meal was at 6 or seven o’clock, and your stomach was empty when you went to bed, there will be no extra energy coming into the system. But you are going to burn calories to live until the sun comes up. Your body will get the energy it needs by burning your fat stores. Every night of your life, you are

Green Coffee Extract and Weight Loss

By Longevity February 18, 2013

Transcript:

I’m often asked about the best supplements for weight loss. Most of the things I see sold have very little science to back them up. The exception to this rule seems to be green coffee extract. Several well done peer-reviewed studies show that green coffee extract, in the range of 1100 to 1200 mg per day, does a good job of enhancing weight loss. Those who use an adequate dose of green coffee extract coupled with a reasonable diet and exercise program do a better job of losing weight than those who eat the same diet and do the same exercise without using the extract. There are also some indications that green coffee extract may have a beneficial effect on brain function, and prevention of some neurologic conditions such as

Exercise: As easy as taking a pill?

By Dr. Jerry Mixon November 6, 2009

Recently there have been several reports making the rounds on the various news outlets of a new drug called 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-1-β-d-riboside (or AICAR to normal people) that seems to mimic the effects of exercise…at least it does in rats. The rats were able to build muscle, gain endurance, and lose weight. Even their ability to metabolize sugar was improved when they took AICAR. Click here to read the study.

A lot of people will have knee jerk skepticism that any drug can ever take the place of good old fashioned exercise. I, however, would not be one of them.  Now, I’m not saying that AICAR is necessarily going to replace the need for exercise but sooner or later something probably will.  After all, exercise fundamentally just sets off a series of bio-chemical changes in our bodies that have an awful lot of beneficial effects on us. There’s no
