9/12/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 10. September 2013 15:53

In the August, 2010 Shape Magazine, they interviews Dr. Kay Kirkpatrick, M.D. and she reflected on the top 5 lessons she learned as a mother and a doctor for 30 years.  Her advice was:

-“A junk food diet will come back to haunt you.”  We talk about that in this blog when discussing clean eating. Junk food adds pounds, zaps energy, spikes your sugar levels, and adds mega calories without contributing nutrition.

-“You only have until age 35 to build bone.”  We spoke recently about calcium supplements and weight bearing exercises to build bone density.  Try to get the recommended daily value of 1000 milligrams of calcium and try to lift weights ( even at home with 2 sets of dumbbells) at least 2-3 times per week.  The best time to build this bone density reserve up is before 35 years old.

-“Smoking adds years to your face”

-Exercise improves your outlook”   I can attest to this one!

-You have to put yourself first.”   To take this step makes a lot of people uncomfortable.  You need to get past this.  You take care of ourselves helps everyone around.  If you fall (figuratively and literally), what happens to all those who count on home, at school, or at work?  You deserve the best!
