Fitness Not Fads

by Michele Pesula Kuegler on May 4th, 2011

Spring is well under way, which means that summer is just around the corner.  As the temperature rises, shirtsleeves switch from long to short to sleeveless, and bottoms go from full-length to capri to shorts.  For many people, the thought of donning less apparel is frightening after a winter of eating hearty meals and engaging in less activity.  What is one to do?

Unfortunately, many people turn to fad diets, miracle foods, or pound shedding devices.  For most of these products, the only thing they will help you to lose is money.  This week, one of our columnists highlighted an energy drink that claims to help with weight loss.  Read her article to learn why this drink won’t help with weight control in the long-term.  Another columnist reviewed a variety of new gadgets, the most interesting of which is supposed to help with firming the abs and thighs.  See why this gadget is deemed useless by our writer.

So, if gadgets, pills, and drinks won’t help, what will?  How about a healthy diet and an exercise routine?  To find the best exercise routine for you, check out our fitness site, My Fitness Tunes.  Whether you want a cardio workout, strength training regimen, or tips on improving your walk, they’re all there.

Summer may be right around the corner.  Get ready to embrace it in a healthy way.
