The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:
*1) Burn more calories then you’re consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm
Get an online, desktop, or cell phone diet and fitness calculator. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.
Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.
Here are two articles on how to break through a weight loss plateau:
*2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.
Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

Has anybody worked as a tennis instructor for Lifetime Fitness or any other tennis club?
I have just been offered a job at a Lifetime Fitness as a tennis pro and also offered a job at a smaller competing location. I am wondering if anybody has had this job in the past or currently. Could you give me details about the job and whether or not you enjoy it. Be as descriptive as specific as you can.
I just really want to make the right decision for my career.

If you haven’t already, I would consider joining USPTA, PTA, MTMCA, or some such organization for teaching professionals. A bachelor’s or master’s degree in Physical Education is also a very good thing to have.
Do you actually enjoy helping other people with their tennis? It’s not about you, it’s about helping *them.*
Having said that, some clubs seem to do better than others. You might try and find out how often a prospective club turns over its tennis personnel. If they get a new tennis pro every six months or so, that’s not good, IMHO.
My old coach used to say “A bad lesson will hurt you more than a ton of good lessons will help you.” Therefore, keep up the planning before all your lessons, and do your damnedest to give the highest quality lessons you possibly can, for *everybody* you teach.
Jim Loehr had a good article about 30 or 50 things that a tennis pro must do, in order to get along. It was printed in ADDvantage magazine a few years ago. It is not as easy as you might expect, being a teaching pro.
All the best
How can I become a really good tennis player?
I am a 15 year old girl. I play 3-4 times a week with a coach for 30 minutes for a private lesson, then I take a group lesson once a week with different coach. I’m a little inconsistent but I have good strokes with great top spin. I would like to get a scholarship to a good school. How can I get really good. I read articles but they all say the best tennis players are natural players and started playing in tournaments when they were like 11. I have never played in a tournament before so they are making me feel like I have no chance of becoming really good. So what are some things I can do?? (Keep in mind that I am still in school)
I have been a Tennis player for almost 10 years, and played a lot of international tournaments around the world. Actually Tennis is a game that you need to practice for at least 5-6 days a week, with 3-4 hours a day of practicing. You can’t just practice 3 days a week, it does not help you to improve you Tennis skills and make you competitive player.
Another thing which is playing tournaments. It’s actually true that you really need to play tournaments and compete with others. The reason why is because the more you play matches, the more experience you will learn from your mistakes. As a result, you will increase your Tennis knowledge and experience and then become a very good Tennis player.
Just to conclude what I already said, I will write some Steps for you, try to follow them literally … ^_^ !!!
1- Play as many tournaments as you can, (weather they are local or international tournaments)
2- Improve you fitness, Improve you fitness, Improve you fitness (Tennis is all based on individual player which is you, so you need to be able to play matches that last for 2-3 hours without getting tired.
3- practice at least 5-6 days a week, with 3-4 hours
4- Eat healthy food that contain a lot of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins to improve your physical and mental heath
5- Be patient and hard worker all the time, and one thing which is very important, DON’T STOP PRACTICING FOR ANY REASON, even if you have certain issues, family issues or health issues or you feel you R tired, go and practice at least for 1 hour.
I am pretty sure that you will be an amazing player, just follow the steps a gave to you.
GOOD LUCK !!! ^_^
Are humans wrecking evolution by allowing the weak, obese and handicapped to reproduce?
I just read an article on Darwin and evolution is basically survival of the fittest. I don;t see the fittest having too many babies these days?
No, I am not a “Hitler” just wondering if the species is degenerating.
I have a serious answer if you are looking for one!
Evolution can’t be ‘wrecked’ – it is simply a pattern of biological changes within a population over a multitude of generations due to the pressures of a particular environment. Don’t let the dry terms of ‘selection’ or ‘fitness’ fool you – evolution is all about struggle, suffering and, most importantly, death. No population ‘wants’ or even ‘needs’ to evolve to be ‘better’ – the changes that arise occur simply because organisms that are less ‘well fitted’ to an environment all die. In fact, one could say that all living organisms struggle against their population ‘evolving’ as they individually desperately fight against their environment to survive and reproduce.
Through our capability to reason and form complex societies that support one another humans (in general) have essentially removed ourselves from the pressures of our environment – we create shelters and clothes to protect us, grow enough food to ensure starvation will not occur and have developed medicines and medical treatments help all humans live longer – whether they are genetically predisposed to certain heath problems or not.
So genetically, in the modern world there are very few environmental factors (hungry predators, weather changes, diseases etc) that can select (AKA kill) enough humans to cause a significant change in the genotype of the population. In short – we have not ‘wrecked’ evolution and natural selection, we have won the battle against it.
Of course this only means that we are safe from NATURAL environmental factors- the environment we create through our laws, societal rules, norms, and policies could also potentially cause genetic evolution/change. For example, as interracial relationships become more accepted we could see a greater dispersion of different physical traits in the future population which is not seen in our current quite tightly culturally enforced ‘racial boundaries’ on reproduction. Or, as a more fun example, if significant parts of the world’s population were to be killed in some sort of nuclear war, the remaining population would have a different dispersion of traits which may result in some becoming more common. Hurray evolution!
In short evolution is not ‘good’ – we are not evolving ‘towards’ something which we would miss out on if we ‘stopped evolving’ – it is just a thing that happens. Evolution is what occurs after individuals struggle to live and reproduce but die without succeeding – and frankly I’m glad that most humans don’t have to deal with that so much any more.
