Funny how the emphasis is always on the carbs…not the eating.
It’s the link.
It’s the molecule that allows carbs can turn into fats and why the low fat diets don't always lead to low fat waistlines.
What can you do about it? Nothing. Not the molecule itself, anyway. But you can do something about the eating.

The low carb vs low fat bout?
Low carb vs low fat. Atkins diet vs Ornish diet.
The fight rages on…even the renowned referee, ‘science,' has its doubts.
One thing we know for sure…too much of anything is almost always a bad thing.
In this battle, choosing one diet is likely to be better than none at all.
Personal trainer Sydney CBD can help.
Do this. Don’t do that.
When its from one trusted source it’s easy to follow.
When there are two trusted sources, one which says 'do this' and the other which says 'don’t do that,’ psychological ambivalence ensues.
Psychological ambivalence describes a state of mind whereby an individual is presented with two opposing points of view from two trusted sources.
The resulting confusion leads to apathy.
‘Is it eat fruit or don’t eat fruit? Too hard, I’ll eat a burger instead.'
Personal trainer Sydney CBD is worried about this phenomenon :/

Imagine if you could simply melt away areas of unwanted fat on your body?
Most Personal trainers Sydney CBD would be skeptical.
You too might think it sounds too good to be true? Well it might just be. But then again, freezing off areas of unwanted fat from the body might not be so far fetched.
Cryolipolysis is a medical treatment used to destroy fat cells by freezing. By using a controlled form of cooling, within the temperature range of +5 to −5 °C, this non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, can reshape the contours of the body. The degree of exposure to cooling causes the cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue, without apparent damage to the overlying skin.
As a medical procedure, cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, and the early indications are - it works!
It's that time of year...spring has sprung. Many Personal Trainer Sydney CBD clients begin to suffer from allergies and the dreaded hayfever.
For those with mild or episodic symptoms it can be managed with one of the following options:
●A second-generation oral antihistamine, administered regularly or as needed (ideally two to five hours before an exposure). Loratadine, and fexofenadine are similarly efficacious and are available at most chemists.
●An antihistamine nasal spray
●A glucocorticoid nasal spray, which is more effective than antihistamines, administered regularly or as needed. For predictable exposures, I suggest initiating therapy two days before, continuing through, and for two days after the end of exposure.
It should be noted that each of these therapies is more effective when taken regularly, although as-needed use may be sufficient for very mild symptoms.
For those with persistent or moderate-to-severe symptoms — Glucocorticoid nasal sprays are the most effective single pharmacologic therapy for allergic rhinitis and are, in my opinion, the best initial therapy for patients with persistent or moderate-to-severe symptoms. All of the available preparations are equally effective, although the newer agents are more convenient and probably safer for long-term use than the older agents. Talk to your local chemist about which preparation may be most appropriate for you.
For those with concomitant asthma (up to 40 percent of patients), the leukotriene-modifying agent, montelukast, may be a particularly useful additive therapy for patients with either asthma or nasal polyposis.

The term "obesity" refers to an excess of fat. However, the methods used to directly measure body fat are not available in daily practice for your local Personal Trainer Sydney CBD. For this reason, obesity usually is assessed by the relationship between weight and height (ie, anthropometrics), which provides an estimate of body fat that is sufficiently accurate for clinical purposes.
The body mass index (BMI) is the accepted standard measure of overweight and obesity for children two years of age and older. BMI provides a guideline for weight in relation to height and is equal to the body weight (in kilograms) divided by the height (in meters) squared.
Adults with a BMI between 25 and 30 kg/m2 are considered overweight; those with a BMI ≥30 kg/m2 are considered to be obese. Obesity in adults is subcategorized as class I (BMI ≥30 to 35), class II (BMI ≥35 to 40), and class III (BMI ≥40). Because children grow in height as well as weight, the norms for BMI in children vary with age and sex. If you find yourself overweight or obese, a personal trainer in the Sydney CBD might be able to help.
For some reason, this winter your Personal Trainer Sydney CBD has noticed that gastro has been rampant amongst his clients.
People ask, what can I do?
The short answer is, not a lot. Acute viral gastroenteritis is usually self-limited and is treated with supportive measures (fluid repletion and unrestricted nutrition). No specific antiviral agents are available.
Fluid maintenance and repletion
For most adults who suffer with acute viral gastroenteritis, dehydration will be a major concern but generally fluid levels can be maintained with sport drinks and broths. For adults presenting with mild to moderate dehydration, the evidence suggests oral rehydration solutions may be superior to sports drinks in maintaining electrolyte balance along with hydration. Patients with severe dehydration require intravenous fluids. Soft drinks and fruit juices that are high in sugar content should be avoided.
In adults with acute viral gastroenteritis, we do not recommend adherence to any restricted diet. Patients should be encouraged to eat as tolerated. Smaller meals may be less likely to induce vomiting than larger ones. Bland, low residue foods may also be better tolerated than others. For healthy adults with acute viral gastroenteritis without signs of dehydration, sport drinks, diluted fruit juices, and other flavored soft drinks augmented with saltine crackers and broths or soups can meet the fluid and salt needs in almost all cases. Broiled starches/cereals (potatoes, noodles, rice, wheat, and oat) with some salt are excellent foods to consider. In addition, crackers, bananas, yogurt, soups, and boiled vegetables can also be consumed.
While the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) is often recommended, the evidence to support it is weak. Similarly, while many authorities advise patients to exclude milk and dairy products from their diet during the episode of diarrhea and for several weeks after symptoms resolve, the evidence to support this is weak.
The value of oral probiotics in acute viral gastroenteritis is not well established, and further research is needed to determine the optimal type, dose, and regimen of probiotics before they are recommended for routine use.
The effect of zinc supplementation on duration of diarrheal illnesses in adults has not been studied, and its use is not the standard of care.
Antimotility agents (drugs that stop you pooping)
In adults younger than 65 years of age with acute viral gastroenteritis and with moderate to severe diarrhea or signs or symptoms of severe dehydration, a one- to two-day course of loperamide (4 mg orally, followed by 2 mg after each episode of diarrhea, up to 8 mg/day) may be appropriate. For adults ≥65 years of age, loperamide is not recommended for self-medication, and patients should be closely monitored if taking it under the guidance of a physician.
Antiemetics (drugs that stopyou vomiting)
Although studies in adult populations are lacking, for patients who cannot tolerate oral rehydration due to excessive vomiting, I suggest treating with an antiemetic (eg, prochlorperazine or ondansetron) as needed for one to two days to facilitate oral fluid repletion.
In adults who clearly have acute viral gastroenteritis (eg, outbreak with known etiology), I do not recommend the empiric use of antibiotics. In general, empiric therapy for community-acquired acute diarrhea (of unclear etiology) may be beneficial but does not appear to dramatically alter the course of illness in unselected populations. If patients initially treated with supportive measures do not improve after seven days or symptoms worsen, then they should be reevaluated and possibly treated for other causes of gastroenteritis.
When to hospitalize
Potential indications for hospitalization include the presence of alarm symptoms or signs, or individuals at risk for complications (eg, dehydration), including:
●Abnormal electrolytes or renal function
●Excessive bloody stool or rectal bleeding
●Severe abdominal pain
●Prolonged symptoms (more than one week)
●Age 65 or older with signs of hypovolemia
●Comorbidities (eg, diabetes mellitus, immunocompromised)
Personal trainer Sydney CBD really hopes you don't get gastro this winter but if you do, see your local doctor for further advice.
