The Queen of the Starvation Scene!!
It isn’t just men who are guilty of leading a mostly sedentary lifestyle and succumbing to the temptations of
being a couch potato. Women can easily fall into this trap, too.
I admit that I do have this TV addiction -I spend hours in front of the television watching sitcoms, “Grey’s
Anatomy” and other TV series -even when they’re reruns!
What’s someone like me to do to finally get rid of this sedentary lifestyle?
This article from Life Hack tells us exactly how we can lose weight while watching TV:
What would happen over the course of a year if our average TV watcher got off the couch and did some
simple, easy-to-do step-ups (stepping up and down on a box, step, platform) every time the ads were on?
The answer is quite staggering.
The author went on to provide the figures. Here’s one example:
Weight of subject: 150 lbs (68 kgs)
Daily stepping commitment: 15 x 3 mins
Additional energy expended per day (8 inch box): 460 cals
Additional energy expended per day (12 inch box): 552 cals
Additional energy expended per year (8 inch box): 167,900 cals
Additional energy expended per year (12 inch box): 201,480 cals
Potential weight loss for the year (8 inch box): 48 lbs (21.8 kgs)
Potential weight loss for the year (12 inch box): 57.6 lbs (26.1 kgs)
Imagine that! You can do some simple step-up exercises in between commercials, and you can shed off
at least 48 lbs in one year!
Okay, so it’s time for me to don those sweat pants, get a 12-inch box and do those step-up exercises in
between the TV ads -most of them are annoying, anyway.
Start by taking into consideration the fact that if you have time to sit and watch Television then you must
also have time to go to the Gym, for a walk or a run. Or do some housework as that is also a good fat
Start by lying on your back, head flat on the floor/couch/bed (floor recommended) and pulling your knee up
towards your chin (they do not have to touch), then SLOWLY pushing it flat. Do not let your leg touch the
floor. Do this 25 times each leg.
Lie on your side, make your bottom leg straight and the top leg lifted a few inches in the air, bent at the
knee. Now lift your leg up until it won't straighten any more. Do this 30 times each leg.
Take the weights; depending on your strength, take one or two (five pound recommended; if you don't have
weights, anything heavy like soup cans that will fit in your hands will do) and stand up and put your arms
over your head. Bend at the elbows so the weights and your hands are behind your head. Do this 25 times.
Lie down on your back with one weight in each hand. Start with your arms an inch or two over your chest.
Lift all the way up and all the way to the sides (your left arm to the left and your right arm to the right). Don't
let your arms touch the ground. Do this 25 times.
Lie on your back and hold the weights to your chest. Lift your back several inches off the ground (do not
use your head to pull yourself up--your back needs to be off the ground, not your head). Do this 25 times
at least twice a day. If you cannot do 25 crunches in a row, then do three, take a breath, then three more.
Do at least 10 sets.
 TipsDoing this every time you watch TV will help, especially if you make a habit of exercising during
commercials. Don't skip!
Another thing you can do is find a good music channel and dance to every song that comes on. Dance with
your whole body!
You don't have to do every exercise; mix it up and do different ones during each commercial break.
Don't eat while watching TV.
Sit on a stability ball instead of the couch while actually watching the program. Bounce a little.
Use commercial breaks as an opportunity to do pushups or other exercises that take your eyes
permanently from the TV. Keep the volume on if you find yourself constantly looking to see if the
commercials are over.
Work yourself hard during the commercials, and then stretch for a short time when the commercials are
over. After stretching, continue your standard exercises.
Some good exercises to do are push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, running in place, squat thrusts, jumping
(be careful of the ceiling), crunches with your legs over the back of the couch, and any of the regular
body-building movements (curls, butterfly presses, overhead presses, squats, calf raises, etc.)
A dark, winter evening in front of the TV doesn't have to be sedentary. Why not do a little multitasking by
doing one or more of these exercises while watching your favorite shows? Start by performing one set of 10
to 15 repetitions for each exercise, then work up to two sets. Before starting any exercise program, check
with your doctor.
1. Diagonal crunch—tones and trims your abdominals and obliques.
How to do it: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat. Clasp your hands behind your head.
Raise your head and shoulders 3 inches off the floor and hold for one second. Rotate your shoulder so
that it points to the opposite knee and hold for one second. Lower your back down to the floor, and repeat
on the other side.
2. Knee push-up—strengthens and tones the chest, triceps, and shoulders.
How to do it: Place your hands on the floor, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. On your knees, slowly
bend your arms and lower your body until your elbows are at least at a 90-degree angle. Straighten arms
and push up without locking your elbows. Keep your body aligned and your abs tight. If this is still too
difficult, instead of placing your hands on the floor, place them on the edge of the couch or coffee table.
3. Chair squat—shapes your hips, buttocks, and thighs.
How to do it: Stand with your feet hip-width apart with your back to a chair. Squat down, keeping your back
straight, and extend your arms out for balance. Don't let your knees move forward beyond your toes. Stop
just enough so that your backside is lightly touching the chair and stand back up.
4. Calf raise—tones calves and strengthens ankles.
How to do it: Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Rise up so you're standing on your toes, hold, and then
slowly lower down. To make this exercise more advanced, you can hold weights in your hands.
5. Front-lying chest lift—strengthens your lower back muscles.
How to do it: Lie facedown on the floor with your chin resting on your hands. All together, lift your head,
chest, and arms 5 inches off the floor and hold for at least three seconds, then lower. If this is too difficult,
place your hands on the floor to the side of your chest, and use your arms to help support yourself as you
6. Shoulder pinch—strengthens the middle and upper back, stretches the chest, and helps train your
shoulders to stay back and not slouch.
How to do it: Stand or sit with your shoulders relaxed. Keeping your elbows bent, raise your arms out to
your sides. Pinch your shoulder blades together by moving your elbows together as far back as you can.
Hold the position, then slowly move your arms back to the starting position.

Today’s urban warriors are much the same. Ginseng, caffeine and Eastern medicine are still being utilized.
Now as it was then, you are no where without the basics namely sleep, smart eating and exercise. First aim for at the minimum 6hours of
sleep a night, for some a brief nap may lead to greater alertness and productivity.
Pack in energy-promoting foods. The definition of energy is calories so make them count. Veggies provide fiber, vitamins and nutrients.
Nutrition bars are a great source as well ...
Caffeine is America’s most popular drug some 85% of Americans drink coffee or some type of caffeinated product. Americans usually are
not the healthiest of the planets people there are better choices to make. South Central America they use a product called Yerba Mate and
Guarana. West Africa the caffeine choice is kola nut and leaf.
Caffeine works by stimulating the nervous system to speed up the heart rate, raise blood pressure and rev up the metabolism (helping the
body lose weight.) It also heightens alertness and concentration...
The facts about "Carb" depleting You cannot completely delete "carbs" from your life. You need them to keep energy and focused. Their
are many diets and products on the market today that can confuse anyone. Even someone who actually knows!
I measure myself everyday to see where I am at. I weigh myself everyday. I read all the diet information I can get my hands on and I check
my body fat .
I concentrate on my thinspiration and keep motivated. I stand on my head for ten minutes a day and do 50 push ups and 60 sit ups
everyday without fail!!
This is something not proven but does seem to work for all who try it. I wear magnetic rings on different fingers for different results. This
is something that works for me. I wear to magnetic rings on both of my pinky fingers when I sleep and I do have a magnetic mattress pad
this is supposed to prevent all types of illness and eliminate swelling, not to mention keep you looking younger.
I keep a food journal, this is a proven weight management tool everyone should try.
I exercise everyday.I have a part time job as a "floater" in a gym. A "floater" is someone who just comes in to teach and leaves. It is great
because I work out for free, and I have to because it is my job. I learned that if you gain muscle you lose more weight because your body
continues to burn more fat. I sleep at least 6 hours a night and drink plenty of water. To keep my skin healthy at bedtime I massage pure
almond oil into the areas I want firmer I also use some moisturizing products to really enhance the skin, and I take one aloe vera capsule
two times a day to avoid looking older or you can drink it for quicker results... Aloe juice.
I take a Cayenne supplement to boost my metabolism.I take a multi-vitamin and I drink a pro-biotic to avoid any yeast. Yeast can make you
stop losing weight even in starvation mode.
When you don't eat very much your metabolism can slow down and you stop losing weight. Because heavy spices bother my stomach I
take a supplement. It is preferable to actually eat the spices. I use apple cider vinager on my salads and in a tincture to help better my
digestion and quicken my weight loss.
I suggest that everyone who wants to lose weight and look great, do some of the same. Try some of the diets on my site and recipes.
Follow the tips. Stay focused!!
