KISS CARDIO GOODBYE!

Yes, it is true....just ask Jim Karas. He wrote Kiss cardio goodbye and lose weight. I saw a little segment on Good morning America this morning on this very book. Needless to say I have got to get the word out. Okay yes it does just sound like the newest fad! However, he really does make sense. He claims that if you want to change your body you have to increase muscle mass...and decrease calories. He says that heavy intense cardio like running ruins your joints causes injuries and MAKES YOU HUNGRY!!!!! He says to lose weight and change your body shape you must count and cut calories, and strength training three times a week for twenty minutes. I really think this is something I could do!!!! I think after all these of dieting (since about age 10)....that it does not matter whether you eat cake, vegetables, meat or carbs....if it is too many calories you will not lose weight. I for one am more than anxious to try this theory out!

http://abcnews.com (Click on Good Morning America, and is under As Seen on GMA Book) Okay I have been trying to find his book, but can't, I don't think it is out yet.


Just a few photos from the weekend. I love this tree, it turns this fushia color in Spring and fall. so pretty!

I definitely agree that it is essential to build muscle mass to lose weight because the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn. However, don't kiss that cardio goodbye entirely because it's still essential for your heart health!

This guy says that the short bursts of activity are just as good, but then I haven't read the book yet to get all the information.

I agree that your going to lose weight when you cut the calories...exercise/weight training will help you to lose weight faster and stay healthy. I have known people to lose weight by just watching their calorie intake, but for me, exercise/weight training makes me feel better and helps me to stay on the right eating track. I'm glad you've found something that you think will work for you!

Beautiful tree! I'd like to see some blossoming trees around here!

Hi Dawnae,
I was in S. Jordan this weekend and thought of you. I wish I'd thought ahead and got your number and I could have given you a call. Your kids look really cute!

dawnae said...

Well if you ever back in SJ let me know....would love to have you over!

OK, ever since you told me this it has really been a depressing thought. I like the high I get from a good cardio work out. NOW, if it is doing me really no good. That is really sad, depressing and annoying@!@ :(

dawnae said...

Well, I think if you want to do it go ahead....but I think some of my knee problems are from the running I did a few years ago, plus other injuries, and of course all the weight....so don't get too depressed, just make sure you are doing the weight thing too. You must be doing something right since you are at your goal weight!

dawnae said...
