Old fashioned manual labor could be the key to tackling obesity!




    Before office jobs or tech jobs were the majority, most people held manual work or "blue collar" type jobs. Farming and construction used to be on top of the workforce list.  Families ran businesses together.  Getting up at 4am to milk cows, plow fields or build homes was an everyday occurrence not a once in a while, go in early to get out early thing.  You started early and you ended late.  That was it.  What about the health of these types of people? Grant it the life expectancy was a bit shorter, but most folks just did what they had to do to provide for their families.  There wasn't sick days or vacation days.  They lifted, pushed and pulled all day, everyday.  Their bodies were muscular and their hearts were strong. They didn't get sick, they couldn't afford to.  The only thing that stopped them was their diets. Smoking was acceptable and butter was in everything.  Cholesterol was high, but thats a different story.  The physical nature of the work completed kept them strong and healthy. 

What if we could mimic that type of work, but in our workouts?  Traditional machines wouldn't be necessary.  All you would need is heavy things.  Your body will change.  This is the ultimate resistance training.  The long periods of "work" give it a cardiovascular benefit. 

Getting back to basics to tackle future health problems.

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
