Greetings! 

Thank you for reading our newsletter.
ASK GILAD

Q: I'm 60 years old and I have never exercised. Is there any point in getting started now?

 

A: Of course there is. In fact, the people that achieve the greatest and most noticeable benefits from exercise are those who have never exercised before. Many studies have proven that even people in their eighties and beyond can achieve significant physiological improvements in muscle strength, bone mass, lower body fat and cardiovascular health by beginning on an exercise program. You are never too young and never too old to begin a fitness program!

 

Look below under the section fitness tips for suggestions how to get started.


  

FITNESS TIPS

 

Getting started if you are an absolute beginner.

 

First of all please see your doctor if you have not exercised before or for many years. Your doctor will most likely be very happy with your decision to get started on a fitness program.

 

The best place to get started for beginners and people that have not exercised in a while is with a simple walking program.

Begin by walking slowly for a few minutes then gradually pick up your pace. Set an exercise goal for yourself. A good starting rate  is 15 minutes of walking three times a week.  If you know this is too easy for you, start at 30 minutes three times a week or somewhere in between.

After a few minutes at a slow pace as a warm-up, walk as briskly as possible. Be sure that you are walking quickly enough so that you feel yourself breathing faster, but not so quickly that you cannot hold a conversation as you go. The 'talk' test is a good check to see that you are working hard enough to receive cardiovascular benefits, but not so hard that you will tire too fast or get dizzy.

 

When you can do this comfortably and want to have some fun while working out... you're ready for our Beginner workouts.  

  

 

 

HEALTHY FOOD TIPS
Collard Greens
 

  Of all the cruciferous vegetables collard greens are among the greatest when it comes to lowering your cholesterol. Cruciferous vegetables include Kale, Brussels sprouts, arugula, cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, etc..

 

In a recent study, steamed collard greens outshined steamed kale, mustard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage in terms of its ability to bind bile acids in the digestive tract which will, in turn, lower your cholesterol.  

  

 

One half cup of cooked collard greens has as much fiber as a cup of brown rice and as much calcium as 4 ounces of Greek yogurt. Collard greens are high in vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and folate.

 

One of the unique benefits of collard is its ability to protect us from cancer by supporting our detox and anti-inflammatory systems.

 

You should include collard greens as one of the cruciferous vegetables you eat on a regular basis. To enjoy the health benefits of cruciferous vegetables eat at least 1-1/2 cup 2-3 times a week. For maximum benefit consume 2 cups of collard greens and cruciferous vegetables 4-5 times a week!

 

To help cook collard greens more evenly slice leaves into 1/2 inch slices and the stem into 1/4 inch pieces. Let them sit for 5 minutes to bring out the health promoting qualities then steam for 5 minutes.   Serve with your favorite healthy dressing.

 

   

Here is a quick 5 minute recipe 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound collard greens, chopped and steamed
  • Your favorite healthy dressing
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 medium clove garlic, pressed or chopped
  • 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1-1/2 TBS sunflower seeds

Optional:

  • 1/2 red onion, sliced (add to steamers with collard greens)
  • 6 kalamata olives, sliced
  • 3 TBS pumpkin seeds
  • 5 drops soy sauce
  • dash of cayenne pepper

SUCCESS STORIES

Lisa lost 31 lbs.

I had been overweight since I had my fourth child almost three years ago. The final straw for me was when I weighed in at nearly 160 pounds and I couldn't even walk out to get the mail without huffing and puffing. I called my sister and asked her what workout she uses and she recommended that I use Gilad's DVDs.

I've lost a total of 31 pounds since beginning my workouts with Gilad. I'm more fit, more happy and most of all more healthy! I workout with Gilad five days a week and follow a meal plan based on Gilad's recommendations! I feel wonderful and am even getting compliments now! It's not just a great workout but it's fun and I love it. Thanks Gilad.


You look great Lisa and well done.
Gilad
