Dear Dr. Jeff,
Dr. Jeffrey Tucker

I know there is a big difference between wanting to exercise and diet, and actually doing it. In this weeks newsletter, I provide
motivational  tips to inspire you to exercise-and provide better food choices to stick with a better diet. Let’s face it, at the root of this problem is motivation, or the lack thereof. I also added a piece on office chairs and low back pain.
 
Thank you to my friends for spreading my natural health message all around the world! 
 
Keep checking www.DrJeffreyTucker.com so I can keep you updated on important and valuable health information. 
If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please feel free to email Dr. Tucker at:  DrJTucker@aol.com

Motivational Tips 

1.  Find an “accountability” partner.  It helps if that person is supportive, positive, and will encourage you in your weight loss efforts. Often times you will want to look outside of your family members and best friends for support. Tell your accountability partner what you’re doing, what your goals are and how they can best support you. Talk to them on a regular basis and anytime you are struggling and need support. 
 
2. Be as intentional as you can by telling people what you are doing. Don’t be afraid to tell people about your intention to lose fat or start exercising. 
 
3. Begin working out even if it is only 10-15 minutes per day. If you are already working out regularly, it’s time to step up the intensity again!  In the morning, do a 4 minute circuit of squats and lunges. Add a 4 minute circuit of some push ups, bridges and abs. Then add another 2 minutes of running in place or jumping jacks. In the evening do the same thing.  So that’s 10 minutes of work in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening for a total of 20 minutes of workout time. Keep the exercises simple – don’t feel like you have to be at the gym to workout. Do it at home or at work. 
 
4. Go shopping. This is an important part of the process. 

 

.Better Healthy Food Choices…

EGGS:  The protein found ineggs has the highest “biological value” of protein — a measure of how well it supports your body’s protein need — of any food. In other words, the protein in eggs is more effective at building muscle than protein from other sources, even milk and beef. Eggs also contain vitamin B12, which is necessary for fat breakdown. Even during all those years eggs were considered bad for you, I never saw it that way. Eating an egg or two a day will not raise your cholesterol levels.


BERRIES:  Berries carry powerful levels of antioxidants: all-purpose compounds that help your body fight heart disease and cancer. The berries’ flavonoids may also help your eyesight, balance, coordination, and short-term memory. During the summer months plan on eating a cup of raspberries or blueberries a day. One cup has about 6 grams of fiber and more than half of your daily requirement of vitamin C.

BEANS & LEGUMES:  Pick whichever you like – Black, lima, pinto, navy. They are good protein, fiber and iorn sources, and low in fat. When people think of fiber they forget to think of beans as a great source.
Researchers in Australia, Indonesia, and Sweden studied the diets of 400 elderly men and women, and found that those who ate the most leafy green vegetables and beans had the fewest wrinkles.

Is Your Chair Causing Your Low Back Pain? 

Eighty percent of adults suffer from back pain. One of the greatest causes may be your office or home chair. Improper sitting can compress, crush, and irritate low backs. Even if you use the adjustable armrests and hydraulic height control, the most important thing to help your low back is to stand up and move around every 20-30 minutes – if you have a bad back it is critical to do this one simple thing.

Feel free to forward our newsletter to your friends, family and coworkers.  And please feel free to contact me with your questions, comments and suggestions. 
Please stay committed to your health, fitness and nutrition efforts.
 
Warm regards,
