I drink, you drink, we fat!

Drink, sometimes, with friends, with family is good! Sometimes, not all weekends! One night can affect one week! I drink sometimes and it’s awesome! But, when you want results don’t forget:

1. Alcohol gave you extra calories, without nutritional value;
2. Increases appetite with a empty tummy, normally “high-calorie” stuff;
3. Dehydratation, water loss, urination! You loose minerals, fluid balance, vicious cycle;
4. Slow metabolism, minimizes your capacity to burn fat;
5. Increases body fat.
6. Drink sometimes is good, just that!

Go Mental Healthy

To  the weigh loss or other objective is important to have  a good mental health,  focus in the results, reduce the stress level (cortisol), sleep well, detox and stay well in family. Everything of this is important because you don’t have a mental health, you do a mental health!

– Eat well, sleep well, exercise well, stay well,  think by yourself, enjoy yourself!- You exist, you are, you!

1. Five Posture Cues To Perfect Your Exercise Form

The reality is, great exercise form is just the ability to maintain good posture throughout the movement. 

“If you get into a good postural position, odds are your form is good. And odds are the right muscles are doing the right work”.

2. Regulation of Food Intake, Energy Balance, and Body Fat Mass: Implications for the Pathogenesis and Treatment of Obesity

“Obesity has emerged as one of the leading medical challenges of the 21st century. The resistance of this disorder to effective, long-term treatment can be traced to the fact that body fat stores are subject to homeostatic regulation in obese individuals, just as in lean individuals. Because the growing obesity epidemic is linked to a substantial increase in daily energy intake, a key priority is to delineate how mechanisms governing food intake and body fat content are altered in an obesogenic environment”.

3.  What Trainers and Gym Owners Need to Know

“The mouth is the source of all calamity. If you talk shit about people, your employees will talk shit about you. Then employees will start talking shit about each other. Pretty soon employees will start talking shit about customers. Before you know it nobody will feel safe around you. Congratulations! You have completely toxified your business”.

4. Saturate, Incubate, Illuminate

“Our goal is not corrective exercise and our goal is not screening. Our goal is no negative results from conditioning and professional fitness coaching or athletic coaching. Unfortunately, no single program can achieve this every time for everyone, which is why data is critical to maximizing results through program modification”.

5. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

“Now, while not giving a fuck may seem simple on the surface, it’s a whole new bag of burritos under the hood. I don’t even know what that sentence means, but I don’t give a fuck. A bag of burritos sounds awesome, so let’s just go with it”.

1. What Happens To Our Brains When We Exercise And How It Makes Us Happier

“Exercise has been touted to be a cure for nearly everything in life, from depression, to memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and more. At the same time, similar to the topic of sleep, I found myself having very little specific and scientific knowledge about what exercise really does to our bodies and our brains”.

2. 17 Things Every Clean Eater Needs to Know

“As above, the thermic effect of calories from macronutrients is different, but a calorie is always a calorie. It can never be anything else. It can never be an antique chair, a bowler hat, or a monkey riding a tricycle. So please stop saying “a calorie isn’t always a calorie.”

3. Troubleshooting the Deadlift

Three common problems that arise with this movement are:

  1. Not pushing the hips in a posterior direction
  2. Flexing the back
  3. Turning the exercise into a squat.

4. The Unspoken Darkside to Training for Performance and Focusing on What Your Body Can Do

“Getting obsessed with reaching a certain goal, and if you don’t reach it quick enough, or worse yet, not at all, it’s easy to feel discouraged. Let’s say you want to  perform a chin-up for the first time, or perhaps you want to squat one and a half times your bodyweight. These are great performance-based goals, but you shouldn’t become obsessed with achieving them”.

5. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

“People often say the key to confidence and success in life is to simply “not give a fuck.” Indeed, we often refer to the strongest, most admirable people we know in terms of their lack of fucks given. Like “Oh, look at Susie working weekends again, she doesn’t give a fuck.” Or “Did you hear that Tom called the company president an asshole and still got a raise anyway? Holy shit, that dude does not give a fuck.” Or “Jason got up and ended his date with Cindy after 20 minutes. He said he wasn’t going to listen to her bullshit anymore. Man, that guy does not give a fuck.”

Spring, The Strength Season

“Always the Spring but never the same flowers “(Chinese proverb)

tumblr_nlrigjAvFP1skla5oo1_500

More light, more day, brighter, hotter, Nature awakens from its sleep of winter and look forward, here is the Spring! Everything is reborn, it rejuvenates, life expresses itself, stronger!

Observe nature and get a better understanding of the human being.
With the rest of winter, necessary, appears in the spring the “eagerness to go” for risk, with a clear vision and a sense of purpose. Urge the acting, the plant and seed ideas, formulate new ideas, believing that better if will reap fruit, make the right decisions!

As necessity, in winter we were more at home with the family, the metabolism down, we need to preserve more fat mass, calm the spirit, to reflect, to stretch more, the fireplace. With the arrival of more heat, took the family into the street, take the heat, emotions,  and food ideas, friendship! We want to grow and show us like the almond trees in blossom.

In the spring we will show us more, watching us, watching others, knowing and not knowing. Sometimes costly because it can be difficult to convey all that we want. Let’s take this slowly, spring is a challenge.

In traditional Chinese medicine, Spring represents the liver and gallbladder. The liver is called strategic planning officer, the great architect of our vision of the future, the official who see what courses we have to live our lives in harmony with nature “. Its companion, the gallbladder gives the ability to make decisions and judge wisely. A decision is not a matter of choice between equal alternatives. Through these employees we can see both the new possibilities and the wisdom of the past and thus view the field of clear and appropriate to take. Without a vision and a plan, decision and direction, no movement is possible – there is only frustration.

The element tree within us governs our sense of sight, the emotion of anger, to the sound of “screams”. Want to see better? Take good care of your vision and have one! The scream of wanting to live is the better communication but don’t turn it into a negative emotion. If we’re right, we all will hear without screaming, literally. Have you ever noticed that the problem of emotions of this season may be the anger, the frustration, but do you remember someone who has achieved everything you wanted? Let’s take this slowly, one step at a time. Grow and be reborn takes time, give it to you!

Flourish naturally and ferment of ideas. The fermented, the pickles are good for this season. Clean your liver, eat more sprouted and learn more about the turnip, radish and radishes. Give some strong psychedelic to your life as the plum vinegar, rice, and sauerkraut. The liver’s not too fond of animal products, alcohol, sugar, stress and polluting environments. Freshness is important, and green is the color!

The strength training starts making more effect because ligaments, tendons and muscles, which attach themselves energetically to the liver and gall bladder, are stronger. Take care of your knees! No Crossfit’s WOD and an exaggerated form. Start the day early, be outdoors and gardening can be a great discovery.

It’s time to reread “Walden or life in the Woods” from Henry David Thoreau, of hugging a tree, a friend, hanging out with friends! Where there are trees is also because it is spring. Go ahead because the spring doesn’t arrive until the summer. Use your abundant energy wisely and more than that, to paraphrase Pablo Neruda – “let life do what Spring does with the flowers”.

I’m intolerant to the tolerance and extremes

The cultured man has the obligation to be intolerant.” —  Nicolás Gómez Dávila

I am intolerant to gluten, lactose, strength training with maximum loads (1-3 reps) and a lot of things they say that i need  to carry in the body.
No, I’m not resistant to change. Human beings must work to change for better and and not affraid  of the unknown. But….

tumblr_lsb04oJzqq1r3itrwo1_500

Yes, i’m are “intolerant” of extremists of ideas in the ” knowledge”,” science “,” common sense “. Our story  prooved that right?  I think that ….

Yes, I’m  intolerant  at the bread that is not bread, milk which are hormones and other wastes, the olive oil that doesn’t smell like olives, chicken and eggs that is fed from the remains of animals and processed cereals, the cow that don’t know what is herb and don’t laughed, the fish that looks like the planet Mercury withou any balance between Omega 3 and 6, the fruit juices with little fruit, salads filled with sauces that seem more like pesticides, product that enhances the taste because the food has no taste, or be in decay?

I am intolerant to the ones they think that “protein” is “animal protein. Common, really? Yes, you could be vegetarian ore reducetarian and be very strong! Talk (?) to rhino what he eats!

I am intolerant to grains and fruits that came from Cochinchina (exist), on the other side of the world, destroying the population and land just because we say they are miraculous, in fashion.  In my country, Portugal, and here in Switzerland (where i live) we are rich in fruits, vegetables, cereals. I am intolerant to such marketing. Local markets, season, organicc! But it costs so much? Preferable to eat less but with quality (nourishes, feeds) than eating more and “trash”, right?

tumblr_mwenykMHx91s8psp2o1_1280

I am intolerant to those who change their opinions like they change a jacket. A study/opinion  says that it’s bad make stretching and they spread the word; After a few months a new study contradict this and ups, we changed our minds/opinion. Above all we must realize that some people need more strength work, others resistance, others mobility, flexibility, and all, etc, etc. Do you really think for a person that “charged all stress in the shoulders” a lesson from stretch/yoga/pilates/chi-kung/massage  would hurt? Reflect before responding. But, Yes, always depends,….Just move, do it!

I am intolerant to fervent defenders of strength training with maximum loads. Nor is critical neither essential! Strength training, it is essential! But, wait, ah ok: must be to sell more Personal Trainer sessions. Do you really think is functional? How many times are you rised big loads daily/in the week? 0? 1?  If you are an athlete and you need, ok!  but if not: move, carrying loads (not big), turn, pull, push, squat, am I right? Just do it!

Still want to talk about gluten, lactose and dead lift? Be resistant to the “noise”!

Respect food, your body (your temple), your family, read labels, follow the science and: use your intuition by the way. Be!
