So good health – but be careful and note the warnings in each of his books before exercising.

Zanna Van Dijk STRONG 80 Exercises and 40 Recipes Fit Healthy Balanced Body

For a balanced approach to Health and Exercise, to become STRONG and lose weight and belly fat – another interesting book by Zanna Van Dijk called STRONG: Over 80 Exercises and 40 Recipes For Achieving A Fit, Healthy and Balanced Body was published just towards the end of the last year (2016).

My new theme for @Cook_BookReview FoodBlog is to research the most current books and ideas that offer the best potential for developing our health, body and mind.

So a really good candidate is STRONG: Over 80 Exercises and 40 Recipes For Achieving A Fit, Healthy and Balanced Body – click the link to read more and see offers to buy on Amazon from £5.99.

It seems current trends lead to the conclusion that we need exercise, movement and healthy foods to maximise our potential.

Zanna Van Dijk has come up with the concept of making us strong, by exercise and eating with balance as the core concept.

Book Content:

There are three sections in Zanna’s book:

MOVE, NOURISH and THRIVE

MOVE:

Considers how best to move, through the most efficient forms of exercise.

Resistance, HIT and preparation, recovery.

A comprehensive list of 80 exercise, with sets and reps to target each of the key body areas, with beginner and advanced sections.

NOURISH:

A selection of 40 recipes for the main meals, with sensible, healthy balanced ingredients.

What food is, the need for balance in meals and a number of tips and tricks to enable healthier choices.

THRIVE:

Reflection and self-evaluation. 

A very good guide to health, exercise and food to improve your body.

Though as with all books of this type, ask your Doctor for advice before starting any new regime – but with numerous beginners sections – the book is a gentle start to exercise that can transform our physical and mental health.

James Wong How to Eat Better How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood

James Wong has released a number of books – however a new release – April 2017 – How to eat better , where we are guided as to How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood- is a cracker of a book.

I noticed James Wong’s @BotanyGeek book in Sainsbury’s and bought it immediately.

How to prepare blueberries so they release more health giving nutrients. How to prepare Garlic – this book is a gem. A must have in my opinion. Recent price is £6.99 from Amazon.

The range of foods we have available – vegetables, fruit, can all be transformed if we now how. How to store, or cook a particular ingredient. How to combine foods for maximum effect. Supercharge the nutrients inside the food to make them Bio-available for the maximum use in our bodies.

See the Daily Telegraph article 10 ways to make your food healthier and turn ingredients into superfood by James Wong.

Buy from: £6.99 How to Eat Better: How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood

Delicious Magazine says: ‘James Wong brings some welcome sanity to the world of healthy eating…its genius is his advice on how to get more nutrition from fruit and veg. It’s fascinating, and better than cutting out food groups or paying for so-called superfoods’ 

In the book some very clever and research based advice:

  • SELECT a Braeburn apple over a Fuji and get almost double the antioxidants from a fruit that tastes just as sweet.
  • STORE strawberries on the counter, instead of in the fridge, and in just four days they will quadruple their heart-healthy compounds.
  • COOK broccoli with a teaspoon of mustard and send its levels of cancer-fighting potential skyrocketing ten-fold.

Check it out, you can get more for your money in health than you think!

Thanks James, great concept, lovely to read and all the best with the book!

 

 


Joe Wicks – Lean Shape Shift Sustain books for a longer healthier life

The Body Coach, Joe wicks. Can we apply the Lean Shape Shift Sustain series of guides by Joe Wicks for a longer healthier life?

After a period of reflection, I have been working toward a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and health as the basis for enjoying the choice of food we eat.

The basis for a healthy lifestyle is to achieve optimum health, a happy and productive life for when we are young and into our later years.

When we are young we don’t worry (or know much about) the effects of ageing. Pains,  aches and gradual wear – that can cause serious disease – is not something younger people normally have to concern themselves about.

So as I get older the need to avoid the usual ‘wear and tear’ of daily life, knowing how to help to repair my body, keep well and have an enjoyable life is something worth making changes to achieve.

Nothing comes easily in this regard and we need to research, plan and act on a lifestyle that will help us achieve these goals. However it is worth it.

Where to start?

One very popular and trend setting ‘guru’ is Joe Wicks. He suggests a combination of meals and exercises to help you attain a healthy body. For really good videos on You Tube see The Body Coach.

An example of the delicious food: Banana and chocolate overnight oats / The Body Coach Blog

Previous Joe Wicks blog

Before setting out on a plan such as Joe Wicks provides, please ensure that you are able to cope with the exercises and able to make the food choice changes required.

However without seeing food from a different perspective – we cannot and will not make the changes necessary for good health. Without realising it, what we eat is deeply ingrained in each of us. We tend to eat what we like – as opposed to what is good for us.

Small changes in the choice and combination of foods combined with the correct exercise can provide significant health benefits.

I will continue a series on health, food and exercise over the next few blogs.

NEW: The Hairy Bikers’ Great Curries cook book

Recipes:

The food that we enjoy, but lighter – less calories. Keep the good stuff but loose the fat!
Food and entertaining go together. So the challenge tonight is to redo party food.

The guys do a weigh in and find they are almost there….

And then the pampering…in a seaweed bath… unreal… a massage and spa treatment…brilliant!!!

The amazing ending is with Si and Dave getting their new weight confirmed almost 3 stone of a loss each. The Doc is very pleased and when they visit the dietician – she has the lost weight as lard on two trays. They guys try carrying these about for a while to see what it was like when they started at their original weight.

It is a wake up call and while they guys make it funny and enjoyable watching, we all should consider what they have managed and if we are overweight – to consider getting a plan in place to reduce our size.

Recent research seems to indicate that a lower intake of calories helps prolong life and maintain good health. So good health to all and keep the calories down.

Who are the hairy bikers? – check Si and Dave out at their BBC page.
