4 Reasons Why Women Need Weights and Protein

Posted on June 6, 2018 by Leave a comment

blog_getleanIn the 1970s, a young Austrian by the name of Arnold Schwarzenegger burst onto the world stage in his full shiny, muscular glory. He won the Mr. Universe bodybuilding contest when he was 20 and then went on to win the Mr. Olympia title six years in a row (and ultimately won a seventh). Intense behind-the-scenes preparation and training for one of his wins was captured in the documentary, “Pumping Iron,” which helped to catapult him into legendary stardom in strong man roles, like Conan The Barbarian, Predator, and The Terminator. In homage, Saturday Night Live channeled him in Hans and Franz’s famous clap, “We are here to pump you up!”

“Ah-nold” showed us what weight lifting and protein diets did to our bodies. It made us HUGE.

And maybe it was the image of a pumped-up Arnold that kept women out of the weight lifting room and in the aerobics class. Of course, cardio exercise is critical to weight loss and especially healthy weight maintenance, but many women have been missing out on the incredible weight loss benefits of strength training with weights.

Protein: the Key to Medical Weight Loss?

Posted on January 17, 2011 by 6 Comments

proteinWant to lose weight without hunger and keep it off? Protein makes it possible.

Numerous studies have shown that making sure protein intake remains high when cutting calories for weight loss can help prevent muscle loss (which keeps metabolism high), satiate hunger, and reduce cravings and binges. Low-calorie, high-protein plans also encourage the body to tap fat stores rather than muscle to get by on fewer calories, making maintaining weight loss easier over time as well.
