The best way to lose weight is NOT to cut calories!

When we eat too little, our body believes that it’s starving so our metabolism slows down and holds onto fat as a potential energy source.” A much better approach: Eat more often, but eat less food at one time

The Seven Cs of Successful Change
Taking charge of your health and your life
Many of us want to make changes in our habits. Sometimes it’s a New Year’s resolution;
sometimes it’s advice from the doctor. Sometimes it’s just a desire to be stronger or have more
energy. We want to eat better and be more active, but we don’t always know how to make the
necessary changes. Taking some time to consider these seven “C’s” of change may help you
understand how to get from where you are now – to where you want to be.
1. Caring enough to treat your body really well.
Caring about yourself is essential for making any behavior change. Self-care is not selfish – it is
what we have to do in order to stop doing one thing and start doing another. Taking good care of
yourself also helps you be in better shape to take care of those around you.
2. Choice to take small steps in a new direction.
Change is all about making choices. It is making the choice to do one thing (like taking a walk)
rather than another (like watching TV). It doesn’t mean that you have to give up all television
programs. It just means that sometimes you make the choice to be more active.
3. Creativity to find a variety of food and fitness options.
The world is filled with stressful situations that can get in the way of our plans to eat well or to
be active. The key is to stay calm and to brainstorm a variety of possible solutions. If you are
out of fresh produce, you can still enjoy some canned fruit or frozen vegetables.
4. Courage for new adventures and everyday challenges.
There is no way around it. It takes courage to make a change. There are many ways to find the
courage you need. You can discuss your struggles with friends or family; read inspiring stories
about people who have made difficult changes; or find strength in faith and prayer.
5. Comfort through tough times with relaxation (or even pampering).
Change is hard work and can be stressful even when it is a positive change. When you are trying
to do things differently, you need to rest and recharge your internal batteries. Take time to
read a book, to take a nap, to play with the kids or just to do nothing for a while.
6. Confidence to take risks and to make normal mistakes.
Optimistic people are generally healthier than pessimistic people. Being confident that you can
make positive changes is at least half the battle. Sometimes it helps to make a list of all the
changes you have already made,like eating more whole grains or drinking less soda.
7. Celebration of the progress toward a strong and healthy you.
Rewards and celebrations are an important part of successful change (think about why we
celebrate graduations or job promotions). Give yourself plenty of pats on the back just for
moving a step closer to your goal. Gold stars on the calendar aren’t just for kids anymore!

In 1889 Eugene Sandow came to public prominence when he upstaged the local talent at an exhibition in London where a strongman  was performing for the crowd of enthusiastic spectators. He immediately captured the attention of everyone in the room by defeating the prevailing darling of the muscle crowd “Cyclops,” and the career of the world’s first internationally recognized “bodybuilder” was launched.
Initially Sandow performed feats of strength, but gradually posing took on a special prominence. The crowds were awed by his shape and form, so reminiscent of the Greek and Roman statues of antiquity. In 1894 he consulted on a book by G. Mercer Adam “Sandow on Physical Training – A Study in the Perfect Human Form.”” Much of the book is devoted to the telling of his life story but the last hundred pages are written to describe the human anatomy, the function of the muscles and specific exercises to do shape them into ideal form.
Sandow opened his chain of “Institutes of Physical Culture” about 1896. They were among the first of the early gymnasiums that were open to the public. His ideas on physical fitness had a tremendous impact on the field. Then in 1897 he authored his own book, “Strength and How to Obtain It.” The year after the publication of his first book, he started a monthly magazine “Physical Culture.”  
In those years, other than coffee, there were essentially no performance enhancing drugs. All physical training was “natural.” And yet the achievements of the early strongmen and bodybuilders are achievements that we can be envious of. It has been 125 years since Sandow burst upon the scene. The foundation of knowledge laid down those many years ago has been refined and built upon, gradually turning what had been an art into a science. And science itself is now able to demonstrate, on a molecular level, how strength and muscle growth occur. There is no magic. And while every body is slightly different, and there are no doubt individuals who are genetically gifted, it is within the power of all of us to improve our condition, our strength and our shape to achieve our personal goals. And our current understanding of nutrition, vitamins, minerals and how the human body functions gives us a tremendous advantage over those old time strongmen.
