Fit 079 Essential Fatty Acids, Get Fit TV, Daily Goals

Learn about Essential Fatty Acids- what they are, how to use them, what they can do for you!  New Get Fit TV times saver combo exercises and daily goals to add up to big results!

NUTRITION
Essential Fatty Acids are important for weight loss, memory, muscle gain, joint support and so many  more vital body functions! Since most people don't get enough EFAs, it's a supplement you may want to consider! In this podcast,  I try to narrow down some of the scores of information out there on EFAs, such as Udo's Oil High Lignan 3-6-9 Blend.
Here are some of the highlights:

What are EFAs?
  • EFAs cannot be made by the body, thus must be supplied through the diet
  • Two basic categories of EFA's: Omega-3 and Omega-6
  • EFAs are the good, "fitness" fats ans are unsaturated
What can they do for you?
  • can improve skin and hair
  • reduce blood pressure
  • aid in prevention of arthritis
  • lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels and reduce risk of blood clot formation. 
  • EFAs are essential for rebuilding and producing new cells.
How do you use EFAs?
  • best dosages for health are 1-3 grams, and up to 5g/day. 
  • Check with your doctor before beginning any new supplement, s some medications can have negative interactions with EFAs.  
  • Take EFAs throughout the day, liquid form is better than the pill form
  • It is beneficial to rotate/change your source of EFAs every 10 days ie- change brands since many are vary in ratios.
EXERCISE
Get Fit TV: Video instruction of one of my favorite times saver combinations: squats and shoulder press!

MOTIVATION
Daily Goals: sometimes reaching a goal is much easier in little pieces. From my twitter daily motivations: Set a goal for yourself each day. Many little accomplishments add up to a big result!  Having a small or simple daily goal can provide the motivation you need to stick to your long term plan. Examples:
  • walk 5 minutes more on the treadmill 
  • do 10 chair squats at my desk before lunch
  • drink 1 glass of water 30 minutes b/f dinner or lunch
Take the Poll: Remember to take the poll if you would like to see additional podcasts on certain topics!
