Gilad:

What is the best way for me to stick to my New Year's resolution to lose weight?

 


Answer:

The best way I have found to stick to any diet or exercise routine is to do it with another person who is just as determined as you are to stick to the routine. Both of you will have built in encouragement and motivation to reach your goals. A great alternative is to join my DietBet challenge. More about that in this newsletter. Happy New Year everyone.

Your 'Get-Off-The-Couch' DietBet has just ended. Do you intend to do another?

The answer is yes! The first DietBet was a big success. We had a lot of winners and we are following it up with another starting January 5th. Now is your chance to get some help with your New Year's resolution. It is great to see everybody involved participating and encouraging each other. Weight loss programs always work better with positive reinforcement from other participants. And remember, I will be checking up on you on a regular basis. I encourage you to sign up today!

Gilad:

What is your favorite location to shoot your videos and TV shows on?

 


Answer:

Hawaii is just overflowing with incredible locations. In the last couple of years I have really started to appreciate 'Sharks Cove' on the North Shore of Oahu. It looks like we are in a spectacular picture postcard. We shot the 'Bodies in Motion' 30th Anniversary shows there and the 5 DVDs in the 'Lord of the Abs' series. Take a look at them here and see if you don't agree.

Gilad:

Hello Gilad, I have lost weight everywhere but I can't seem to get my midsection reduced. Any suggestions?

 


Answer:

It always seems that the area you want to lose weight from the most is the area you lose the weight from last. This is very common problem for many people although the problem area varies from person to person. Some hold the extra weight in the abdominals, a common problem for men, while woman tend to hold extra weight in the hips and thighs. Regardless of your specific problem area the solution is simple: PERSISTENCE! Look at what you have accomplished already as your motivation and let it lead you into conquering that last stubborn area. You can also spend a little extra time on specific exercises to target your problem area. In the case of the abdominals, I recommend my "Lord Of The Abs" DVD series. This is a "Core Cross Training Program" that will get your entire body in shape while focusing on the core. I am a firm believer that if you stick to your fitness program and eat healthy that you will be able to accomplish your goals and even get rid of that last bit of stubborn fat.

Gilad:

Hello Gilad, I have recently had Surgery for lung cancer and have since felt weak ie 0 strength! I’m 56 year old and intend on getting fit and healthy, the eating part I’m good with but could use your help on how to start a weight training work out with your DVDs please advise. Thank you

 


Answer:

Hello! I think the best DVDs to help you start up again would be "Sculpt and Tone" and the "Beginners Weight Loss and Toning" DVDs, they are both designed to get you going without being overly challenging. I think this would be a good one for you to get back in the groove. All the best to you!

Gilad:

How many calories do I burn walking at a 10% incline on treadmill at a medium pace? I am 5’5 and 130 lbs. Also can you recommend some high protein snacks? Thanks, Jill

 


Answer:

I would estimate that you are probably burning about 300-400 calories per hour depending on the amount of exertion. If you are working within your 'aerobic zone' (65%-80%) of your maximum heart rate then I think that would be a fair estimate. In regards to protein shakes there are many to choose from, some are vegetarian based such as soy protein and others are whey protein. Best thing to do is read the ingredients and get to know what the different products offer and what you feel suits best your goals and.. taste buds!

Gilad:

I have reached a plateau in my training/weight loss, what should I do?

 


Answer:

The word "plateau" in my opinion is often over-used. It is typically a condition that describes professional athletes who have been over-exerting their bodies on a regular basis and are in need of more rest. Many times it will happen after months of intense competition. In the case of us "regular folks" we tend to use that term when, for some reason, our weight loss has stopped for a period of time or when we feel like we are not improving in our fitness program. Remember, when you are on a weight loss program and are working out, you are losing body fat and gaining muscle at the same time. Often the scale will not show weight loss because of the simple fact that - the muscle you gained weighs more than the fat you lost! - Also keep in mind that muscle takes up less space than fat in the body because muscle is denser. That is why often you will see inches lost but not weight loss... I would simply stick with the program understanding that the body needs time to adjust to the new regimen. If you are eating healthy balanced meals and adjusting your fitness program as you are becoming more fit, you will keep improving!

Gilad:

Hi Gilad! I love your videos, and have been watching them for many years now, I just have a quick question for you. I had a heart transplant and a kidney transplant and I'm looking to just get into good shape, but don't want to  do too much lifting just want to stay very lean. I was just wondering if you have a workout that you would suggest for someone like me. Thank you my friend. - Mike


Answer:

Dear Mike, Sorry to hear about your medical challenges, but it sounds like you are ready to get your body back into motion! To 'ease' you into a fitness program I would recommend the following DVD's: 1. Beginners Weight Loss and Toning Program. 2. The 60 and 30 minute Low Impact workouts. 3. Sculpt and Tone. - Although this program uses light weights, you can chose to do modify the movements without the weights using only your body for resistance, you will still get a workout!

All the best and please report in! would like to know how you progress.

Gilad:

When you lunge forward you always say not to let your knee go past your toe. Why?

 


Answer:

It is very important for your body to be in the right position any time you do any exercise. Not only will you get more out of each exercise but you will also keep your body's working parts safe. Any movements that involve deep flexion of the knee (beyond 90 degrees) needs to be very carefully executed as it is potentially unsafe. In most cases it is not necessary to go into a deep flexion in order to get the benefit out of the exercise. A classic example is the forward lunge. The best way for you to gauge that your knee is not bending below 90 degrees is to make sure that your knee ends up in a vertical line to the middle of your foot and that it never goes past your toe line. You will notice that even in professional sporting events it is rare to see any athlete go into a deep forward flexion, if they occasionally do so, it is not in a repetitive movement such as you do when you exercise. Have a safe workout!
