What The Hell Is Far Infrared?

So you try to eat a balanced diet most of the time but daily life can get in the way.

You get to the gym as often as time allows but it’s not as often as you would like.

Most days you feel well but you always feel like if you’d had a little more sleep or not as much on your plate (so to speak) that you’d feel even better.

Do some or all of these sentences resonate with you?

Read on as I have an amazing energy (hear health) booster that I want to share with you.

That Sun Bathing Feeling…

Imagine you’re on a summer holiday.

You’re lying on a quiet beach with warm sand supporting your back and the sound of the ocean waves gently crashing beneath your feet.

The suns rays heat your skin & all of this instantly puts a smile on your face.

Remember how you felt the last time you spent the day at the beach? 

That warm fuzzing feeling throughout your entire body.

Your mood was great, relaxed but energised, sleepy but energetic.

What if I said I can help you recreate that exact feeling every single day no matter where you are in the world? Would you try it out…

It’s True…

The latest Far Infrared technology delivers these benefits directly to you.

This system is tried & tested with hundreds of studies & reviews backing up the research.

It’s very simple.

A compact blanket of minerals is slowly heated. As they are heated they emit light rays that penetrate your body to the deepest level.

If you’ve ever had trouble detoxing or losing excess body fat this could be the answer.

If you suffer with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or just get moody in the winter this could be a saving grace.

If you haven’t been on holiday for far too long & therefore haven’t reaped the rewards of being in the sun this could be invaluable.

Get The Sun Tan Benefits Without The Skin Worries…

I’m teaming up with a great company called Get-Fitt.

They provide this technology in the latest form – beds, sleeping bags & mats.

You can take a nap on one of these devices or sleep on it all night long.

You can place a mat on your seat while you write you daily emails or work from your desk.

It’s simple – It’s easy – It’s healthy

You will instantly feel the benefits from your first session.

Each session could last ten minutes or a few hours, it’s really up to you.

There is so much I could tell you about this system that we’d be here for hours!

So I’ve arranged with Mark, the owner of Get-Fitt to be at my book launch on Tuesday 26th April 2016, from 19:00-21:00 so that you can have chat with him & his team yourself.

He’s a great guy & I know you’ll enjoy chatting with him on the night.

One Of The Experts On The Night…

  Mark Givert – www.Get-Fitt.com

Here is a video I filmed with Mark at his office recently…

Do one small thing for me (which takes fifteen seconds) so I know how many people are coming –

Even More…

I’ll be sharing some more breakthrough stuff with you that will enable you to achieve your personal best & unleash your full potential real soon.

Circadian Rhythms & The Best Time to Workout

What time do you usually go to sleep?  Is it the same time every night?

 

I am asleep by 10.30pm four or more nights every week. This is a goal that I’ve set for myself & I stick to in order to help me have successful & productive days as well as support my productive.

3

What is a Circadian Rhythm?

This is your body’s natural biological clock.  Katherine Sharkey, MD, PhD, assistant professor of internal medicine & psychiatry & human behaviour at Brown University & associate director of the Sleep for Science Research Lab explains:

“The human clock is about 24 hours, thanks to Earth’s 24-hour light-dark cycle.  But some people have a slightly longer natural cycle, & some are slightly shorter.”

Sharkey says, “There’s a developmental piece to this puzzle – school-age children are generally early birds, while teenagers tend to be night owls, & then as they age, adults gradually transition back into morning people.”

 

Early Bird or Night Owl?

So which are you?  Do you tend to get up early & feel most active & productive first thing?  Or are you one who tends to get a burst of energy later at night?

Good news for the early birds: “night owls tend to be more depressed, have a higher dependence on caffeine, & use alcohol more,”

Sharkey says.  According to a study from the University of Toronto morning people also tend to be happier & report feeling healthier than night people.

 

When to Workout…

So what does all of this have to do with your workouts?

Well, once you know about your body’s rhythms you can work with this internal clock to schedule workouts to get maximum results.

In terms of your circadian rhythm (sleep/wake cycle) it’s best to work out earlier in the day. Between 8am & 2pm for example.

Your Cortisol levels are naturally higher (or should be) at this period of time so it would be wise to take advantage of that.

Also, as your day progresses you will begin to experience more fatigue. So in order to keep your workouts intense enough to generate results you should aim to workout as early in the day as your schedule permits.

The night-time is for relaxing and recovering.,, & the occasional wild party.

 

Keep up the good work.

Why Eat A High Protein Diet?

You may have seen the two recent articles I wrote around protein intake & it’s importance.

I want you to take on that information easily so I have created a highlights version of those two articles.

Apply this knowledge to your daily life to watch & feel your energy & performance soar…

There are three types of macronutrient:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrate

 

12 Benefits of Protein…

  • Greater muscle mass & lean tissue
  • Lower hunger & calorie intake
  • Easier fat loss on a calorie-restricted diet
  • Decreased belly fat
  • Greater muscle development
  • Greater strength gains from training
  • Better bone density & lower risk of osteoporosis
  • Better brain function
  • Better sleep
  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Stronger Tendons & faster recovery from injury
  • Greater lifespan & better quality of life as you age

 

 

You need protein for:

  • Growth (especially important for children, teens, pregnant women & those who train regularly)
  • Tissue repair
  • Immune function (the second thirty grams of protein you ingest goes directly to your immune system)
  • Making essential hormones & enzymes
  • Energy when carbohydrate is not available
  • Preserving lean muscle mass (this is essential if you want to control your body shape & remain trim & fit for life)

 

These Techniques Are Logical. Do You Know All Of Them? – Click Here

The Power of Powders…

The most common protein supplement due to it’s bioavailability (easy for your body to assimilate) is whey.

However if you have a dairy intolerance this can cause some people issues. The best whey supplement I have found is Vital Whey. It is hormone, pesticide and preservative free, made from organic grass fed cows milk.

There are also vegan options where the protein from brown rice, pea, cranberry and other plants has been extracted & concentrated.

Protein from animals provides all the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) for optimal absorption & application.

Plants do not contain all of the essential amino acids but do contain varying amounts of the eleven non-essential aminos.

So therefore they are important within a balanced diet but in most cases do not provide the full spectrum of amino acids for optimal health to become available.

A total plant based diet will likely leave most people with some deficiencies. That is why both approaches must be applied.

A high protein diet in combination with a high vegetable intake from the majority of your meals is the most effective way to achieve & maintain optimal health & performance.

 

 

How Much Should You Eat?…

As a general rule of thumb I suggest:

  • Male: Around 3 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day

Eg. 80kg man should ingest approximately 240 grams of protein per day.

 

  • Female: Around 2 grams of protein per kg of body weight.

Eg. 50kg women should ingest approximately 100 grams of protein per day

Burn Out: The Price Of Success? Executive / Corporate burn-out & how to avoid it

While aiming high helps you achieve greater success, at times your ambitious nature may lead to such a level of stress that you risk ‘burn out’.  New studies on this topic show that while great pursuits are not a bad thing, there is a level of perfectionism that is so high that it can lead to stress, frustration, depression & more.

2

The Perfectionist

Studies discussed at Livescience.com describe new research showing that 90+% of highly ambitious people refer to themselves as ‘perfectionists’.  The study also revealed that the trick to keeping stress & potential burnout at bay is to keep your high standards but avoid beating yourself up when you don’t meet every expectation or goal.  A fine line to walk basically!

 

The Risks

While the above strategy may seem difficult to balance perfectionism + forgiveness for failures, consider the alternatives.  Stress related to perfectionistic tendencies & high-goals has been linked to:

  • Mental health problems
  • Physical health problems
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • …& even early death!

So is it worth trying to find this balance to avoid any of the above?  After all, any of the above problems will set you back on your goals far longer – or even permanently!

 

How to Avoid Burnout

Study author Andrew Hill, a sports psychologist at York St. John University in England explains that:

Perfectionists “tend to be rigid,” Hill said. If they set their goals too high, they may burn out or bow out at the first sign of failure. Thinking of achievements in degrees, rather than as pure success or failure, can help reduce the stress that causes burnout, Hill said.

So what can you do today to start on this path?

Start by outlining your goals & thinking of all of the steps involved in achieving them.  While you still want to outline dates & deadlines, remember the ‘degrees of credit’ advice suggested by Hill.  Instead of thinking of everything as success or failure give yourself a rating: ‘70%’ & then use that as an additional motivator to continuously improve your rating/scores on all fronts.

…After all, 100% is not achievable 100% of the time – so remember to give yourself partial credit PLUS a bonus for the overall amount of projects you are tackling at once!

To Your Best Health,

ShapeTrainer Daniel Grant

The Importance of a High Protein Diet: Volume Two

Why is Protein Important?…

As protein is involved within so many essential processes within your body & the fact that so much of your body is made out of protein blocks (amino acids) it is critical that you ingest optimal amounts on a daily basis.

protein

You need protein for:

  • Growth (especially important for children, teens, pregnant women & those who train regularly)
  • Tissue repair
  • Immune function (the second thirty grams of protein you ingest goes directly to your immune system)
  • Making essential hormones & enzymes
  • Energy when carbohydrate is not available
  • Preserving lean muscle mass (this is essential if you want to control your body shape & remain trim & fit for life)

Protein is found in meats, poultry, fish, meat substitutes, cheese, milk, nuts, legumes, & in smaller quantities in starchy foods & vegetables. You can also supplement protein using protein powders.

The Bottom Line…

An average sized chicken breast will contain approximately thirty grams of protein. Therefore in the example above, males would need to eat eight chicken breasts per day while the female example would need to eat just over three to get their daily requirements.

As always I strongly suggest you vary your source of energy & nutrients by varying your diet with the many choices of protein available to us all today.

So for example have fish for breakfast, lamb for lunch, chicken for dinner and use turkey or venison as a snack.

Or any varying combination that you prefer…

The choice is yours…

And by eating a high protein diet the world is your oyster – which is handy as oysters are also high in protein & packed with healthy nutrients.

Happy eating.

The Importance of a High Protein Diet: Volume One

You may not realise it but protein is an important element in every cell of your body.

For example, both hair & nails are made up of protein. Your body uses protein to make enzymes, hormones & to repair & build different tissues. Protein is an important component in bones, skin, blood, muscle & cartilage.

What Are Macronutrients?…

Micronutrients provide calories or energy. In order to grow, repair, digest or perform any bodily function you require specific amounts of macronutrients on a daily basis.

The word macro means large, this indicates that you need a lot of these types of nutrients regularly.

There are three types of macronutrient:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrate

Each provide energy as explained, but they all provide different amounts of energy in a different form for the body to process.

Protein provides four calories for gram, carbohydrates seven calories per gram and fat nine calories per gram.

Aside from macronutrients the only other substance that provides energy is alcohol at seven calories per gram.

This is not considered a nutrient as we do not require it to survive… much to the surprise of some people I’m led to believe!

Alcohol provides what is termed ‘empty calories’. As you’re taking calories on board but without any nutrients that help perform vital processes.

Stress Management, Anger, & Benefits of Living a Less Stressful Life

I rarely lose my temper, no more than once or twice a week on average.

How often do you find yourself getting angry?

Are you aware that anger is the psychological manifestation of stress & worry?

How often do you lose your temper?

stress

My LENS questionnaire will point you in the right direction. Takes less than five minutes to complete & you’ll receive a personalised report – Click Here To Take The Questionnaire Now.

 

We’d all like to be able to live a more stress free lifestyle. The benefits of less stress can be seen, not only in the way you handle situations, but in what you decide to eat, how your body reacts to stress & the shape of your body & where you store fat.

Case studies that directly correlate with the benefits of anger management, as well as how a person handles stressful situations have proven the benefits of stress management.

 

 

Symptoms of Stress…

Have you experienced any of the following issues without knowing why?

  • Trembling or tremors
  • Grinding of your teeth
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Cold or sweaty hands or feet
  • Frequent colds
  • Frequent infections or sores
  • Unexplained allergy attacks
  • Heartburn
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Frequent crying spells
  • Feelings of loneliness
  • Increased frustration
  • Nervous habits
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Heart racing or palpitations
  • Increased number of minor accidents
  • Overreaction to petty annoyances

…Any of these can be symptoms of being over stressed!

Stress affects the body in other ways as well… The tendency for heart disease is a more obvious & well known correlation.

Numerous studies have indicated that due to consistent heart rate increase created by stress, we are stressing our hearts physically more so than on average, & the correlation of heart disease & stress is long standing.

 

Case Study – Stress vs. Diabetes…

Those who suffer from diabetes, for example, have seen positive results when they address & manage stress.

Stress management training was associated with a small (0.5%) but significant reduction in HbA1c.

The term HbA1c refers to glycated haemoglobin. It develops when haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming ‘glycated’.

By measuring glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), clinicians are able to get an overall picture of what our average blood sugar levels have been over a period of weeks/months.

For people with diabetes this is important as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications.

HbA1c is also referred to as haemoglobin A1c or simply A1c.

 

My LENS questionnaire will point you in the right direction. Takes less than five minutes to complete & you’ll receive a personalised report – Click Here To Take The Questionnaire Now.

 

What To Do…

It’s obvious that any or all of the symptoms above can decrease your level of heath, your wellness or even your life if experienced on a long-term basis!

So what’s the cure? 

Obviously – trying to find ways to limit your stress as best possible.

Begin to say ‘no’ when people ask to add new things to your plate, especially when it is already full.

Take time to implement systems that help you manage overwhelming tasks or problems.

Delegate tasks. Be smart with where you spend your precious time. If someone else could be completing the task for you then pass it over & spend a fraction of the time reviewing their work before completing the job.

Talk; to yourself, outloud, to co-worker, to friends, to complete strangers!

A problem shared is a problem halved.

Not only will it help you feel less stressed by talking out the issue(s) but the person you share with may come up with additional solutions on how to manage, decrease or eliminate specific stressors in your life that didn’t come to your mind.

It’s worth a shot.

 

 

Food & Exercise…

Also – remember: eating healthy & exercising are great ways to stimulate feeling good, strong & energetic while at the same time reducing stress levels.

Eating well helps to increase serotonin which is the ‘happy hormone’ & exercise also helps to increase endorphins – other hormones that help stimulate happiness & positive thoughts & emotions.

Be aware of your stresses & what causes them.

Always look for better ways to manage & reduce your stress & promote positivity, wellness & longevity!

Why Your Workouts Should Be High Intensity

New studies show that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) may be even better than regular aerobic exercise.

Emerging research indicates that HIIT may be more effective in reducing subcutaneous (beneath the skin) abdominal fat than other forms of exercise.

0002

Instantly GAIN Understanding of What Is Working For You AND AGAINST You from Your Current Routines and Habits – CLICK HERE

 

 

The Benefits of HIIT…

According to research by Stephen H. Boutcher, High intensity exercise helps lower insulin resistance & results in a number of skeletal muscle adaptations which help enhance skeletal muscle fat oxidation & improve glucose tolerance.

Basically put this form of exercise will increase muscle tone and burn off body fat.

Tests were performed on sprinters as they often have quick bouts of intense exercise with periods of rest in between.

Beyond the health benefits mentioned above HIIT has also proven to be more time-efficient & helps you to get results more quickly & efficiently.

…Particularly when you’re focusing on the abdominal area.

Try HIIT…

HIIT can easily be modified for anyone at any fitness level & even for those with special conditions such as diabetes or weight problems.

Examples of HIIT exercises includes but is not limited to:

  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Aqua Training
  • Cycling
  • Eliptical
  • Cross-training
  • Treadmill walking, jogging or running (sprinting)

 

An Example Workout…

Try this as a workout next time you’re in the mood to shift some belly fat.

Two minutes steady pace – this will act as a warm up. Slowly increase your speed over the two minutes.

At the two minute period hit the gas and go into a sprint (or something resembling a sprint). Keep this pace up for 30 seconds. Just do your best, that’s all that can ever be asked of you.

At two minutes thirty slow it down to a steady/slow pace. This is active recovery. Actively recover for one minute – then repeat the process.

Complete at least five sprints and work your way up to fifteen. That is a goal.

If you try and complete fifteen on your first attempt you may experience nausea like you just downed a glass of thick salt water – so aim for five and build yourself up.

At the end continue the movement slowly and easily for two to five minutes as a cool down – keep the blood flowing for a period of time after the intensity, then apply some light stretching.

Enjoy.

Stress Chemically Affects Willpower…But….

Have you ever been totally on track with your diet & eating habits, happy about your overall diet & then get hit with a big bout of stress?

 

Maybe it’s work related, family related or just a combination of everything but suddenly your willpower to make healthy choices lessens until you no longer care to make those good decisions.

 

…In fact, you may even feel a bit rebellious – when stress is impacting you & there’s nothing you can do to eliminate the stress, eating poorly seems like a small (albeit inner-child serving) impulse to do one irresponsible thing in your day.

 

Here are some totally quick and realistic stress busters. Determine what yours are right now… Click Here

Don’t worry.  Not only is it understandable from a human standpoint – but even new studies performed in Switzerland prove that even moderate stress led participants to choose food that they liked over food that was healthy.

 

 

 

 

The Big Why….

 

The study actually showed that there are neural pathways in the brain that influence a person’s desire for immediate gratification.

 

When stress is increased, the areas of the brain that help to control willpower are actually affected & the desire for immediate gratification increases.

 

According to Silvia Maier, a co-author of the study & doctoral candidate in neuroeconomics at the University of Zurich, “The findings show that self-control is mediated by a complex & distributed network in the brain.”

 

She outlined that any number of disturbances in any of these complex regions of the brain can weaken self-control.

The Good News…

 

It’s not all your fault.  The point is that willpower is not 100% a production of your mind thinking through what’s going on & making choices.

 

There are actually chemicals in your body that are affected, particularly in times of stress – which help to weaken your resolve.

 

 

 

The Big “BUT”…

 

Then again, knowing that it is not 100% reliant on your own thought processes does not provide an excuse!

 

If anything, knowing that there are even more things affecting your willpower you need to be that much more dedicated to working against all of these factors & keeping yourself motivated, inspired & dedicated in any & all ways possible!

 

 

 

Motivation Techniques…
Below are some ideas on how to help stay motivated, particularly in times of stress:

 

  • Mater Mind Group: We all know it helps to talk through the stress, plan to meet for a walk or a workout at the gym while you talk about the issues and think through solutions.

 

  • Do anything & everything you can to eliminate or reduce the stress in your life – if there are areas that you’ve been avoiding (i.e. talking with a spouse, co-worker) tackle them head-on & get these conversations out of the way as quickly as possible so to reduce the stress as soon as possible.

The Best Way to Boost Your Energy Is…

Before you get in that long line for Starbucks coffee to help wake you up tomorrow – consider the following studies & think about fitting in a 20 minute workout instead.

Research suggests that regular exercise can increase energy levels, even more than caffeine.  Better yet – exercise is even effective at boosting the energy levels among those suffering from chronic medical conditions such as cancer & heart disease.  (Now that’s some powerful ‘medicine’!)

In a study published in the Psychological Bulletin, over 6,800 people were analysed to measure the effects of exercise on their fatigue.  By the end of the study, more than 90% of the people who completed a regular exercise program reported improved fatigue over the groups that did not exercise.

In fact, the study showed that exercise was often even more effective than – not just caffeine, but even greater than the effects of stimulant medication used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) & narcolepsy.

According to researcher Tim Puetz, PhD of UGA: “We live in a society where people are always looking for the next sports drink, energy bar, or cup of coffee that will give them the extra edge to get through the day, but it may be that lacing up your tennis shoes & getting out & doing some physical activity every morning can provide that spark of energy that people are looking for.” (Source)

So if you have just 20 minutes to spare in the morning – try the following challenge: replace your detour for coffee with a quick bout of regular exercise for a few weeks.

For example: 10 bodyweight squats, followed by 10 full-body or kneeling press-ups. Complete two to three rounds.

Be aware of your level of fatigue & see if the little extra movement actually increases your energy levels.
