What is "Effective Exercise" ?
All health care practitioners recommend exercise to their patients but then leave the patient hanging ..and I don't blame them as there is so much conflicting information out there.
You know that most of the programs offered on TV are way too overwhelming for you yet you want to do something right?
And the typical health club model is obviously failing miserably... frustrating millions.
The dilemma "What Do I Do"?
The common wisdom on exercise today is all WRONG equating low intensity, long duration exercise such as running, jogging and aerobics with fitness.
Recent research has shown this type of activity to be very hard on the joints, to be very "oxidative", has little impact on weight loss, no benefit in reducing osteoporosis, and not even the best way to protect the heart or develop endurance!
Wow! So much for the common recommendation.
Our 2DF Program is a first...a program that walks you through the relationship of foods and hormones...provides an explanation of what effective exercise entails , that is a program with its emphasis on weight loss, health and fitness not athletic performance. A program that addresses the fundamental metabolic imbalances or glitches that may be slowing the metabolism down such as thyroid, hormone, allergies etc.
The traditional focus to losing weight is on the amount of calories you burn while working out and limiting the calories you take in. Our 2DF program explains why this recommendation doesn't hold water.
2DF does a 180 from other programs emphasizing plenty of the right kind of foods and an exercise program that challenges the largest muscles of the body to evoke a hormonal response "protein synthesis" that will step up the metabolism 7 days a week.
Over the years, resistance training has proven as a great way to add exercise to a limited schedule. It can be safely performed by all age groups and fitness levels and is more beneficial to overall fitness than any other exercise protocol.
Resistance training delivers improvements in strength, endurance, flexibility, conditioning, muscle tone, and in all cardiovascular parameters. It is a stress reliever, limits repetitive activity on joints, and minimizes oxidation. Resistance training also taps into the fat stores to supply the energy for "protein synthesis" (the recovery stage ).
The big news is that science and decades of experience with thousands of clients has demonstrated that the benefits of resistance exercise can be achieved with just two workouts a week!
