Dr Webster and I discuss the latest research from the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports who examined the effects of different types of exercise on the body’s ability to process glucose.

One group already had healthy glucose metabolism.
The second group included those with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.

Here is what we address and have known for years.

HIIT/burst training and it relation to fat burning, cardiovascular health, detox/cleansing
Benefits of Burst that directly benefit bone health- physical impact, reduced cortisol/stress, lowered inflammation.  

What I find interesting/frustrating is how science doesn't interview or care to interview the practitioners such as personal trainers and the results they receive with their clients.

If they had, they could have learned about the results we/I was having with my clients more than twenty years ago.

My guest is Ford Baker who contacted me because he felt it necessary to share his story on air to help others who struggle with his former poor habits.
 
Ford is a former overfat person who lost over 150lbs and has kept it off for three years
Ford has 3 goals. 
 
1. He wishes to help others who judge overfat people for eating horribly and not exercising to understand that they are fully aware of how they look. 
 
2. To share what the impetus was that created this huge change
 
3. To motivate others with his Today I Can message for everyone who struggles the way he did. 
 
We will learn the mind of a former fat guy, the impetus behind his change, how he changed his attitude toward himself, and how he committed to positive change and persisted through hard times.
 
How did he stayed consistent in his effort to keep his weight off and be the example he needed to be for his family and others who struggle with their health?

With advances in technology and the advent of the internet, people are well informed and have read every diet book and health blog about how to lose fat.  Most people often say they know what they should be doing yet they fail to do it, and do so with consistency.
 
So if the lack of information is not the issue to losing and keeping fat off. What is?. Executing our learned info with consistency and the emotional impediments and habits that shape us.
 
So many people have intentions that extend beyond fat loss, yet they fail almost as soon as they begin to create the new habits they seek.
 
Have you been told you lack willpower?
 
Too many people experience shame and self-criticism and do not need someone else telling them they are weak. 
 
As a health professional, it's crucial to identify how your client best receives information and what motivates them. There is no, one-off program unless you use genetic testing, but then even those results have to be implemented.
 
The Heath brothers who wrote, Switch. How to Change Things When Change Is Hard. They break down our thoughts and decisions expressed by “The Rider” and “The Elephant” as two mental/emotional triggers, and a third, “The Jungle”  created by Dr. Jade Teta and Dr. Keoni Teta from www.metaboliceffect.com.
 
Which one are you?
