How To Get Fit By Summer; Life123 Helps Feed Your Mind and Improve Your Health
Date:4/14/2009

BOSTON, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- With summer quickly approaching, the consequences of those long abandoned New Year's resolutions -- such as joining a gym you'll never visit, or swearing you'll eventually start eating better -- can no longer be hidden under bulky sweaters.

Before you begin crunching those abs or counting calories, start by exercising your mind! Plan a program that fits your needs, or those of your family. Health and fitness articles at Life123.com can help you make informed, intelligent health and fitness decisions.

First, figure out where you stand. Calculating BMI (body mass index) for yourself and your family will tell you how much, if any, work is in store. If your child is your focus, the BMI calculations for children will help you determine if you have an obese or overweight child.

Next, get ready to begin with a clean slate. While purging your system of toxins may sound scary, there are plenty of recipes for a detox diet that include yummy foods you'll enjoy.

After that, it's time to plan a healthy diet. Learn about cholesterol lowering foods and make them part of your routine. If you're ready to get radical, consider starting a raw food diet. Familiarize yourself with list of raw foods to maximize the nutrition you get from fresh and dried fruits and vegetables (not to mention nuts). If the idea of eating raw isn't for you, consider the benefits of juicing.

Finally, accept the fact that eating healthy is only half the battle. You're going to have to get a little physical, too. Don't get overwhelmed. It doesn't have to be intense! Just 10-15 minutes of low-impact exercise a day will help. If weight machines and running aren't your bag, you can investigate Pilates and Yoga. What is Pilates? It's a system of exercise which requires focused attention and concentration on core strength, stretching and breathing. Explore the benefits of pilates for an easy but effective workout. Not a Yoga expert? Check out yoga positions for beginners and approach your first class with confidence!

Now go get fit!
