Working Out with a Whole Body Vibration Machine

Lose the fat just by standing in place? It does seem a little unrealistic. It’s no surprise that so many people have a really hard time believing that it is true. But whole body vibration machines are showing promise in delivering many results, as was demonstrated in recent research studies.

Believe it or not, now there is an exercise device that is able to make it easier for you to reduce your weight, and the only thing you have to do is just stand on the vibration plate.  It might be hard to imagine, but researchers are finding that it is not that unrealistic after all.  Working out on a vibrating machine provides quite a few health advantages.  One example is that you can eliminate belly fat by working out on one of these machines.

Russians were the first to use vibration machines during missions. However, they weren’t the first to make use of the technology.  A doctor from Battle Creek, MI produced a vibrating chair for his patients way back in the year 1895. The physician who introduced this piece of equipment was none other than Dr. John Kellogg, one of the two brothers who developed Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.

So just how is it possible to slim down by standing still?  It is due to the simple fact that even though you are immobile, your muscles are not.  Your muscle tissues are tensing several times each and every second you are on the machine in response to the machine’s vibrations.  These quick contractions help tone and strengthen the muscle tissue.  It does not take a lot of time to complete your daily workout with the vibration exercise machine.  It takes just ten minutes each day.

For many people, the weight loss and fat-burning that result from the use of the vibrating machine are plenty, but that isn’t all the device is useful for.  Some of additional advantages are improved flexibility and strength.  You will discover that as the muscles in your body strengthen, your performance in some athletic abilities will improve as well.  Vibration exercise machines may also help delay osteoporosis by reducing the loss of bone density.

Perhaps you are tempted to shop for a vibrating machine by analyzing the asking price alone.  However, you should be careful not to purchase a vibration exercise machine that was manufactured in China from inexpensive materials.  The shaking that the device has to withstand puts a great deal of stress on it, so you should consider a version that is made of steel.  The form of vibration is something else that you should take into consideration before you buy a vibration machine.  Don’t purchase a vibration machine that has piston, or tri-planar, vibration.  The most effective kind of vibration is pivoting vibration, which is also called oscillating vibration.

Clean Eating – A Delicious Way to Eat Healthy!

When someone tells you that they eat clean, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?  If you are like most people you are probably imagining a diet that is boring, loaded with carrots, celery sticks and dried out grilled chicken.  In truth, this diet certainly would be considered clean, but clean eating doesn’t have to be boring!

Although you will want to consume foods as close as possible to their natural state, these foods can and should be prepared in a way that is delicious.    Just yesterday I enjoyed some low fat French fries that I made of baked sweet potatoes drizzled in a smoked jalapeno cream.  I can ensure you that in no way did I feel deprived!  With a little practice just about anyone can learn to prepare wholesome foods in a way that is delicious.

If the idea of eating clean is new to you, there are a couple of things you will want to keep in mind.  First, you will want to have three meals each day as well as two or three snacks.  Eating frequently has been shown to increase your metabolism and even more importantly it can help keep your blood sugar levels stable.  This means you will be much less likely to overeat later on in the day.  Each meal should consist of complex carbohydrates as well as protein foods from lean sources.  You should also include at least six servings of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

Although you will only be eating healthy foods, understanding portion size is key.  There is no need to count calories but portions should be approximately the size of your palm for protein and carbohydrates.  The approximate portion size for fruits and vegetables is what you could fit in two palms.

Steer clear of processed and refined foods as well as those that are high in saturated fats or those that contain trans fats.  Rather, focus on getting healthy Essential Fatty Acids in your diet.

With a little planning, a clean diet that is also delicious is possible!
