The #1 New year’s resolution every year is to lose weight. Time for a paradigm shift. Remember we need to design SMART goals – there is nothing flippant about goal setting.

Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timely
Let’s focus on adopting a healthy lifestyle – and I promise the healthy, fit body will follow. Fadi shares with us his 5 fitness secrets, turning your body into a fat burning machine (yes it is possible!), how we build muscle mass, & most important of all – keep it simple & ensuring longevity in your new lifestyle!

As the Holiday Season is upon us – Dr. Ariel Ortiz & the Obesity Control Center & I would like to share our wishes for you & your loved ones over the holiday season – and into 2012 and beyond:
The Holidays are about sharing time with loved ones. There is absolutely no better way to show love for another than by contributing to their health. May your create new, healthy family traditions. How ’bout a paradigm shift. Instead of saying “its the holidays its time to indulge” – how bout learning new ways & welcoming new traditions that respect health. Instead of watching football- go out and play a few games of football with friends & family. 75% of our chronic illnesses are attributable to poor lifestyle choices. Help everyone at this year’s family holiday gathering be at many more – healthy & not ridden with diseases such as heart disease or cancer.

Eat, Exercise, Live – CancerFitCare

Please join us for an encore appearance by Eric Durak of Cancerfitcare. Today we review once again from our previous show about cancer prevention – but we also discuss the new program being unveiled in 2012 – Cancerfitcare – fitness & nutrition for cancer recovery.
There are numerous studies backed by every major organization – Center for Disease Control, National Institute of Health, American Cancer Society – up to 50% of cancer could be prevented with proper nutrition & exercise – the problem is – less than 50% of Americans are meeting the minimum suggested amount of physical activity. We are writing our own prescription for cancer with

physical Inactivity…..Obesity…….smoking……A toxic diet……our sugar addictions causing over production of insulin……….alcohol…….unmanaged hormones

Eric provides us with an understanding of how a tumor grows – which will clearly explain why many live a carcinogenic lifestyle.
For cancer prevention, we discuss vitamin D, Omega 3s, antioxidants, exercise.
Unfortunately, there are still unknown forces in the development of cancer – but fact is the stronger & healthier we go into such a medically demanding crisis – the better physiologically equipped we are to go to combat. Eric introduces the new Cancerfitcare program to us – a program which is being heralded as the “goto” cancer recovery program by medical fitness professionals. It is imperative when choosing a fitness expert to support cancer recovery to choose a provider that is specifically trained to meet the demands – there is no quick fix here, training is very different – exercise with cancer care becomes about self care. Eric will also share with us progress in getting incentives in health plans – incorporating cancerfitcare into health plans – improving health of members and reduce the amount of health care costs.

Stay tuned for Game Plan at the end of the show – I refer to many previous shows where many of todays topics were discussed in great depth with the researchers.

Every show here on EEL is dedicated to enabling you to make great lifestyle decisions – and help you create your own perfect little ecosystem that works for you. We have researchers, doctors & experts bringing us all of the latest research.

Click on the orange b on this page – and check out her photo – now you know why I say her mile can light up time square.

All of the shows on Eat Exercise Live center around living a heart healthy life. Women are dying of heart disease in record numbers. I would like to share with you a daunting ad on television now from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. Yes, creepy but very effective. Please watch.

She shares the challenges, how building her physical strength & endurance built her emotional stamina, how Jillian Michael’s tough love & metaphorical words “you play your sports how you play your life” inspired her to a passion for fitness – well beyond the show. Jenn & her brother & father just ran the NYC marathon – a childhood dream fulfilled. Jenn also opens up about the importance of truth in our life & overcoming our fear of failure – very inspirational – makes us all do a little soul searching.

Our own Dr. Ortiz shares his insights on “its not just about information its about transformation- it takes a drastic change in our life – the microenvironment, our home, small little increments that will eventually become our lifestyle habits”. Dr. Ortiz further advises us building our own little ecosystem – microenvironment – that will be supportive of us living a health centric life. Make sure you stay tuned for Game Plan at the end of the show – where I help you fine tune your own personal ecosystem.

Eat, Exercise, Live – The Omega Diet with Researcher & Author Dr. Artemis Simopoulos – My gift of love to you on Thanksgiving! A very Happy & Healthy Thanksgiving!

You are what you eat. Period.
We are what our foods eat – this is called the food chain. We are products of evolution – which happened over centuries. We have tried to changed the food chain – and unfortunately created mayhem with our health. The American Academy of Pediatrics & the National Institute of heath just released new guidelines for child health. Children should all be tested for high cholesterol between ages 9 and 11 and again between 17 and 21 years of age, regardless of their family history – in other words – family history is not as an important indicator now as lifestyle habits.

Our diets have created havoc with our health. Its time to go back to our real roots – how our bodies were engineered by the omnipotent power – evolution.

The Omega Diet – by my guest today – Dr. Artemis SImopoulos - is my coffee table book. I always say there is absolutely no better way to show love for another than by contributing to their health. My loved ones always thumb through and I know they are learning how to eat – and our health depends on how we feed our bodies & our physical activity.

Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, is the Founder and President of the Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health, a nonprofit educational organization in Washington, D.C. Dr. Simopoulos was a Founding Member of the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL). She is the Founder of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/ Nutrigenomics, Past President and Founder and Chair of the World Council on Genetics, Nutrition, and Fitness for Health (WCGNFH). she is a physician and endocrinologist whose research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was on the nutritional aspects of genetic and endocrine disorders; evolutionary aspects of diet and fatty acids; and the importance of a balanced ratio of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids in health and disease and in growth and development. She is the author of the fabulous MUST read The Omega Diet and has edited numerous books and journal supplements in addition to publishing over 345 scientific papers. Please welcome Dr. Artemis Simopoulos to EEL.

Dr. Simopoulos explains to us the role of essential fatty acids in our life – why they are vital to our existence. Much of our chronic diseases – cancer, heart disease, COPD, asthma, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, auto- immune diseases – are thought to have a common cause – our diets. Our diet has changed from healthy Omega 3 gifted foods to being strong armed by a very unhealthy dominance by the Omega 6 fatty acids. We discuss why the oils we should be using are canola & olive oil, how the presence of Omega 6 worsens the influence of saturated fats, how we can easily increase our consumption of Omega 3 and reduce Omega 6s, why low fat diets do not work and why they are so unhealthy, how omega 3s fight obesity, & how Omega 6s contribute to obesity – how they actually alter fat cells. Dr. Simopoulos gives us many shout outs for exercise – how our obscene consumption of omega 6 fatty acids, and our physical inactivity epidemic both need to be addressed to reverse our health crises.
We also hear from our very own Dr. Ortiz of the Obesity Control Center – as he shares with us his insights on how veering away from our Omega 3s over the years and the lack of physical activity has caused us much of our illness and obesity. He further explains how our bodies evolved to eat an omega diet – certainly not our typical North American diet.

Make sure you stay tuned for Game Plan at the end of the show – I’ll tell you more about fish & also more about cooking oils – a guide on knowing which one to use for what. Oils have a smoke point – a point at which if they are heated above this they become carcinogenic by releasing free radicals – really important we use the right cooking oil – depending on what we are preparing. I also discuss the new set of guidelines for children released by the NIH & the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Eat, Exercise, Live – A Heart Beat is a Love Beat

A healthy resting heart rate is probably the most under appreciated and under utilized vital sign of all. Fact remains – heart disease is still by far our #1 killer – and the most tragic part of all – these are very often preventable deaths – a product of poor lifestyle choices. The ultimate question to ask yourself – if I had a crystal ball and knew I would be spending the last third of my life plagued with pain, chronic illness, debilitation & my daily activities would be moving between hospitals, cardiologists, oncologists & figuring out how to pay for the pharmaceuticals – would I be living my life differently now? Would I stop smoking, find time to exercise & prepare healthy meals? Once again on Eat Exercise Live – I bring you another researcher – who helps you reap the rewards of a healthy, fit lifestyle.

Dr. Eva Lonn is past director of echocardiography for many years at McMaster University Hamilton General, Ontario Canada and is professor of Medicine. Her clinical interests include cardiovascular prevention, coronary care unit and general cardiology. She earned her MD at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. Part of her research is finding if there is a correlation between resting heart rate – and the chance of suffering a major coronary event. She served also on the Executive Committee of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society and has published over 300 peer reviewed articles, and has delivered numerous invited lectures at various major national and international meetings. We discuss the significance of our resting heart rate, stroke volume, cardiac output, why exercise & muscle mass are so critical for heart health therefore overall health, salt intake & provides us her list of the top 10 heart healthy habits for all. Dr. Lonn tells us about the Interheart study a world revered study by McMaster University- a case-control study conducted in over 50 countries, was to determine the associations between a range of risk factors and acute myocardial infarction within populations defined by ethnicity and/or geographic region, and to assess the relative importance of these risk factors across these populations. We discuss stress as a major coronary risk factor – and how many of our lifestyle choices which we deem “help us deal with our stresses” really in fact create physiological stress – exacerbating the lifestyle stress. Be sure to stay tuned for Game Plan at the end of the show – where I bring you more information on salt intake & stress – physiological stressors. We also hear from our very own Dr. Ariel Ortiz of the Obesity Control Center – how excess body fat dramatically effect our heart rate – the miles of extra vascularization & pumping our heart needs to do in order to accommodate. I think his metaphor for how hard our heart must work will resonate with all of us! I will also share with you more great upcoming shows – designed to help you love you healthy lifestyle. Check out the orange “b” on the show page for a sneak peak – with great thanks to our very appreciated sponsors!

Where would we be here on Eat Exercise Live without the integral contribution to our shows from Dr. Ariel Ortiz of theObesity Control Center.

Eat, Exercise, Live – Alcohol kills

The number of alcohol related deaths each year is obscene – a combination of alcohol impaired driving and alcohol related disease impact. Alcohol is the third leading cause of preventable death in the United States – it follows physical inactivity & obesity.
We are our own worse form of terrorism.

I have a serious objection to the expression “social drinking” – everybody who drinks thinks they are a social drinker. Well, happily, my guest today despises that expression as much as I do & clarifies for us what is acceptable drinking & besides the obvious effects of alcohol – he discusses the more insidious ways alcohol destroys our health. Dr. Sam Zakhari is the Director, Division of Metabolism & Health Effects National Institute on Alcohol Abuse & Alcoholism (NIAAA) part of NIH. Dr. Zakhari discusses people who should not drink at all, fetal alcohol syndrome, the cumulative effects of alcohol, psychological impact of alcohol on the person & on the family, alcohol & cancer – & the ongoing research on alcohol & breast cancer. You will learn about alcohol & fat storage, nutrient depletion & how alcohol contributes to our diseased obesity state. We discuss teenage drinking and college students binge drinking – much more than a hangover. One of the numbers the Center for Disease Control analyzes to understand the impact of alcohol is YPLLs – The Years of Potential Life Lost – how many years of life are lost due to alcohol attributable deaths – this number each year is in the many millions. The cost of alcohol related accidents & deaths costs our government each year is nine times the total annual budget of NIH. I would rather the money go to NIH for research.

As always a huge shout out of thanks to our sponsors The Hair Club & The Obesity Control Center.

Eat, Exercise, Live – Discipline Dazzles

Hit the orange “b” on the show page here and take a look at my guest today Nicole Wilkins, 2 time IFBB Figure Olympia Champion. This is the picture of a person who has not had fast food in 10 years, does not drink alcohol, exercises faithfully, eats a seriously clean diet, redefines self discipline and her healthy, fit lifestyle is on her mind 24/7. Nicole & I discuss what self discipline means, food preparation to save time, money & health, the importance of positivity in our lives & integrating healthy goals into our lifestyle. Nicole shares with us her training during competition as well as off season. And don’t let photos scare you off – Nicole spills the secrets of why she looks so pumped – ladies – we don’t want to hear the excuse of not resistance training because you are scared you will get “ripped”. Nicole has overcome challenges in her life – she did not win the genetic jackpot, it took 10 years to achieve this look – not “6 weeks to a bikini body” as magazine covers will tell you. She is an inspiration – and a strong as her beautiful physique clearly is – I promise you her mental strength & focus are much stronger.
