I am a Zumba instructor and love to try other intense cardio workouts.

In this article you will find my review of Turbo Fire as well as information on where you can get it and other Beachbody fitness programs for a great price.

I first saw Turbo Fire on an Infomercial one night while flipping through channels. What drew me into watching the whole commercial were the dance music hits and the fun moves that went along with them. The moves also looked like they were mixed with cardio and resistance training. This was a huge plus in my book.

In the beginning, you definitely have to go slow in order to learn the moves since they can go pretty fast.

This program is great in that there is a ‘New to Class’ option that is like a tutorial for some of the moves.

When you start the actual workouts, you just jump in and go. There is no stretching exercise at first; only a brief warm up. This is the same for my Zumba classes and I love how my heart gets pumping right away. I feel as though I am definitely getting a better workout.

Turbo Fire is a combination of kickboxing and dance moves which is what makes it so much fun.

If you have done Zumba before, this program is like Zumba on steroids. It is a lot more intense and will get you a lot more toned than just having a regular cardio workout.

The HIIT classes that Turbo provides are like intense fat burning workouts. And the best part is that you get 3 DVDs filled with these great little workouts.

There are also 2 Fire EZ classes. These classes are not as intense, but they hold their place in the program still offering a good part to the fitness routine.

With all the intense classes that come with Turbo Fire, Chalene (the fitness guru of TF) definitely did not forget the stretching classes. Stretching is essential after warming up the muscles, and Turbo gives you a nice 40 minute routine, as well as a 10 minute stretch included with each workout.

For those of you who have never done HIIT classes before, this program comes equipped with a prep schedule in order to get your prepared for these workouts.

I found the toning classes to be some of the best I have taken yet. Chalene definitely favors push-ups, and her push up routines will definitely get your upper body in shape.

The kickboxing includes jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts, round-house and push kicks, pump its, zigzags and many other forms.

There are also a couple new moves named after this product, as well as other new combinations and variations of older ones.

There is a good amount of plyometrics (jumping) so it’s best to make sure that your knees are in pretty good shape before getting heavily involved in this program.

The music that is chosen for this workout set is great. There are a lot of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and modern dance hits all included. You will get songs like “Push It”, “Bad Girls” and “Proud Mary”. You will also hear great performing artists like Donna Summer, Flo Rida, Tina Turner, and lots more.

Where To Get It At A Good Price.

As you can probably tell from my review of Turbo Fire, the program is absolutely great. The only thing that was a turn off for me was the price.

The good thing was that I was able to get the entire workout at Amazon for a really great price. Even better, the program came with some other cool stuff.

Although this program is on the more expensive side for fitness DVDs, it is definitely worth it. I have never been in better shape.

Lipodissolve, also known as injection lipolysis, is a fat treatment method in which small deposits (usually .25 to .5ccs per injection) of a solution are placed immediately under the skin. (.5cm) When this solution comes into contact with fat, and it has a zone of diffusion of about 1 cm. from the injection site, a ‘fight’ takes place known as inflammation. This inflammatory reaction helps break down the walls of the fat cells allowing their stored fat to be released. While there is some debate as to what actually happens to fat that is released, it appears that it is removed by the bloodstream and carried to the liver where it is broken down and eliminated as waste products.

Most LipoDissolve solutions use a mixture of synthetic emulsifying chemicals which are well tolerated by the body. Lecithin, also known as phosphatidycholine, and cholic acid (bile salt) are always the two main ingredients. Both have emulsifying properties to break down fat cell walls and there is some debate also as to which one is really the most effective at doing so. Since these LipoDissolve solutions are not FDA-approved, they are mixed and distributed by compounding pharmacies. (which are also not FDA regulated) The compounding pharmacy industry is usually unknown to most of the general public and many non-pharmaceutical drugs and compounds used in the wellness, anti-aging, and alternative medicine world are made by them. Some practitioners mix other agents into the LipoDissolve solutions but no clear cut benefits has been proven for these ‘cocktail’-like mixtures. I prefer to stay with more pure compounds that use lecithin and cholic acid only as I have never had a negative reaction in a patient yet.

The key to getting a safe and effective outcome with LipoDissolve is one of limited dosing. Keeping injections for the body to less than 50 (total volume of 25 ccs) and in the neck to less than 15 (7.5cc) produces results that appear to have no side effects other than the temporary swelling which is an expected part of the treatment process. I have treated many neck and jowl areas successfully but will not use it for any other facial areas. The use of LipoDissolve injections into the fat pads of the lower eyelids, for example, seems dangerous and does not produce a near similar result to what is achieved with the far safer and more predictable lower blepharoplasty procedure. Injection into the buccal fat pad can also be done but knowing that you are into the correct area is an impossibility.

Does ResVer-Xp really work? What is resveratrol anyway….and can it help me look, feel and “be” a younger, healthier and happier version of myself? In this article we are going to take a quick look at Resver-Xp, and see if resveratrol supplements can truly help you live a healthier life, starting today.

First….what exactly is ResVer-Xp?

Good question! It’s a popular supplement that is manufactured by GNS, that offers natural resveratrol in a pill form.

How much resveratrol is in each capsule?

50 mg per serving.

Is that a lot or just a little?

According to the company, this highly concentrated form of resveratrol is the very best way of getting the anti-oxidant into the human body for maximum absorption and benefit.

Isn’t Resveratrol found in red wine? Can’t I just drink more to get similar benefits?

Another good question…and trust me, I’m a BIG fan of red wine, so you wont’ hear me discourage it! But, unfortunately, the amount you would need to drink to get the benefits of a single capsule would be too high. ( some scientists say 500 bottles a day) And moreover, your liver wouldn’t like you too much if you even had 2 bottles of wine a day, or even too many glasses over a prolonged period of time.

Is all of this stuff proven to work? Or are we still in the “speculative” phase?

In my view? Still the speculative phase. While many people swear by resveratrol, and many of the scientists who are developing these products are household names, there still is NOT conclusive proof that anti-oxidants extend healthy life, nor that specific “super” supplements like resveratrol will be the answer. Like anything else though in life, you’ve got to evaluate it all on the basis of the evidence, AND how these supplements make you feel…and finally, are they like little, mini “insurance policies” that we take with the hopes that they WILL be everything they promise! On all of those fronts, in my view, ResVer-Xp fits the bill as a smart investment for sure!

Most if not all of the time, diet, weight loss, and fitness programs involve strict diets which for some, can be difficult to follow. The key here would be to discipline yourself and your food intake. And more often than not, this includes abstaining from eating your favorite food. This then becomes the trouble for many people who go on a diet especially when they are just starting to get used to it. But do you know that there is actually a diet program that allows you to still indulge in your favorite food without having to sacrifice your weight loss goal?

That diet program is none other than the Cheat Your Way Thin program by Joel Marion. A lot of people actually like this diet program for a number of reasons. First and foremost of course is the fact that it delivers results. But the second point is the fact that sets it apart from all the other diet programs. And this is the cheating part. Basically, this is all about working with your body system and not against it. Thus, you can help your metabolism to run faster for a longer amount of time so that your calories will be burnt. But at the same time, you can “cheat” by infrequently indulging in fatty food that works in three ways-it boosts your metabolism, burns more calories, and provides you with more motivation to carry on with your diet.

While most diets involve the tactic of cutting up or totally depriving yourself or nutrients like carbohydrates, protein and fat by starving yourself which is working against your body, the Cheat Your Way Thin program lets you work with your body by making you find a different way to eat that will accommodate certain instances when you can eat your favorite food.

Basically, you will undergo a cyclical diet. You will have a low carbohydrates day, a low glycemic day, and a high glycemic day. Then at exact and scheduled intervals, you can have a “cheat day” when you will eat whatever you want. This tricks your body in such a way that it will still think that you are on a diet and that it is still getting all the nutrients and things that it needs but you on the other hand are eating your favorite, unhealthy food. And there lies the beauty of this fitness and diet program.

The medical care industry is continuously growing and there’s no sign of it slowing down soon. The growth can also be seen on the allied health care services closely tied up to medicine.

The reason for this growth is the continued demand for medical care. It was further fueled in the past decade by the fact that the world population is aging and is therefore requiring more health care services.

Based on this knowledge we can easily see that one of the best industries to start a career is in medical care. With its continued growth this industry promises a stable career as well as possible fulfillment knowing that if you are a professional in this field, you are helping directly in making people’s lives better.

However, it’s not a secret as well that the traditional ways of obtaining a job in the medical industry isn’t easy nor expensive. It takes years and a lot of money to study for a health care career especially if you are working on the clinical side.

The good news is that there’s another side to the medical industry where accountants, programmers, encoders, and people from other professions can go into. That is the administrative side of the medical care industry.

Though the clinical side of health care is the hearth of this industry, allied services are also required to keep the medical care system working. Accountants, marketers, purchasers, stock room custodians, computer programmers, encoders, transcribers, and back office staff are also needed in the administrative side of the health care system.

So if you are thinking of starting a career in the medical care system but you don’t have the money to invest for a profession in the clinical side of things, you can study for one of the allied health care services. One of the fields you can go into is medical billing and coding.

Medical billing and coding is the part of the administrative side of medical care that deals with the revenue cycle. Medical billers and coders are the people that process the health insurance information of patients, the services rendered to patients and finally make sure that claims for services rendered to insured patients are submitted and settlements are received.

Though working on the administrative side of health care that particularly deals with the health insurance system, the medical billers and coders are still adept in the theoretical knowledge of medicine. Medical billers and coders won’t be able to directly provide any form of medical care to patients and are not licensed to do so but they have working knowledge of the entire body anatomy and of the diseases that affects the body. They are also adept in medical terminologies.

The working knowledge of medical billers and coders in medicine is a must. They are interacting with physicians and medical care workers so it’s a requirement that they know how the theories of medicine.

So the best way to become a medical biller and coder if you are interested in becoming one is to have professional training and learn all of the following critical knowledge required from all medical billers and coders:

1. Human anatomy, physiology and diseases

2. Medical language and terminology

3. Health insurance and reimbursement process

4. CPT and ICD-9-CM medical coding databases

These are the subjects that you must learn and master if you want to get into the health care industry by becoming a medical biller and coder. Though it will still take time to study these subjects it won’t be as hard and as expensive as studying for a career directly involved in the clinical side of medical care. Good luck!

Just a couple weeks ago I posted this epic guidance: “8 Ways to Debunk Wellness and Health Promotion Research Papers.” It obviously rocked the world of the scientific health-publishing community.

Since then, editorial review boards of respected research journals in the population and workplace-health fields have called emergency meetings. The boards admitted a need for more diligence in evaluating article submissions, and then improving objective, peer-review standards prior to publication. My phone is ringing off the hook. HA! NOT!!

In fact, the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Medicine (JOEM) just published an article titled, “Does Whale Oil Illuminate Darkness Effectively?” Well, that wasn’t exactly the title. But it was close. It was actually, “Do Workplace Health Promotion (Wellness) Programs Work?” The article manages to include most of my eight warning signs for being invalid.

My colleague (defined as another person who knows the lyrics for the great tunes of the 60s and 70s) Jon Robison, PhD (see note below) just asked 13 questions about the JOEM paper of the lead author, which I think should be answered.

The reference to “the parallel universe” means that the conclusions Goetzel and company came up with have no relation to our known laws of science. The conclusions are not of this earth. In essence, you have to suspend reality to accept Goetzel’s claims. That’s a fair criticism.

Al Lewis, PhD, and Vik Khanna, have been calling Dr. Goetzel on these issues for years. If you haven’t read Lewis and Khanna’s book, “Surviving Workplace Wellness, With Your Dignity, Finances and (Major) Organs Intact,” you should if you’re working in workplace wellness or health promotion. And of course, don’t miss the most in-depth (and sometimes scathing) review of that work, which I bravely posted, “Al Lewis and Vik Khanna criticized me in their new book, Surviving Workplace Wellness. And now my life is over.”

Khanna (once again) took exception to Goetzel’s JOEM paper in his post, “Do Workplace Health Promotion Wellness Programs Work?: Ron Goetzel’s circularity.” Lewis makes a comment on Khanna’s blog opening with the statement, “It might be nice if Mr. Goetzel actually responded for a change.” Indeed.

What You As a Wellness or Health-Promotion Professional Should Do

Often employers and some brokers are unknowingly complicit in allowing these invasive and ineffective wellness programs into workplaces. Workplace wellness as it’s currently practiced is starting to be challenged by mainstream media and the weakness of the concept is becoming more widely understood.

And not too long ago I published, “5 Questions That Will Make Your Wellness Vendors Think They’re Having a Bad Nightmare… A Workplace-Wellness Critique.”

I don’t suggest an anti-wellness movement. But the entire paradigm, our thinking about it, and new solutions are needed. There are a lot of good people out there with better ideas based on common sense and sound science. That’s why I remain optimistic that workplace wellness can transition, change, and evolve into a meaningful and effective way to help people enjoy their careers and to be healthier. But we have to let go of what doesn’t work.

Which reminds me of a popular old quote, “There is no right way to do the wrong thing.”

I’m sure I can speak for most people, that we want to sustain a healthy life so that we have the ability to live up to a ripe old age. One such sore subject we never like dealing with is weight loss. It’s the type of thing that we can turn on like a light switch, and on the opposite end, turn it off. But not exactly to our own free will. Weight loss and exercise was something I have always wanted to pursue and keep doing, but what are the right things for a man my age that I can easily do. I’ve decided to give the Green Tea diet a check for thirty days and see what all the buzz is about. I’ve heard so much good things, and doctors and scientists believe this herb has many positive elements that can help me curb my appetite, lower my blood pressure, and feel young.

Just an overview on what I have to deal with. First of all, I’m about 40 lbs over weight, I don’t have the best metabolism but I do live an active lifestyle full of sports. Secondly, I have inherited hypertension, it is in both my father’s side of the family and my mother’s, it’s inescapable! That is the overall realization I’m faced with, a foundation for my study. Let’s see what some of the results come out to be.

I dove head first into this diet to achieve one thing, not to lose the weight, but to see what it does to my blood pressure without depending on blood pressure medication. I’ll still eat my three square meals a day and use the green tea solution as my snack in between meals. Because believe me, I love my in-between snacks, and who doesn’t? So in the beginning of March, I took my last blood pressure pill, and bombs away!

After drinking green tea for the first week, I’ve noticed a drop in my blood pressure readings close to what they were when I took blood pressure pills. I was shocked because I didn’t think there was something that could have dropped it like that. I’ve also noticed a less desire to eat when I drink the tea, I don’t know where it comes from, but it could be a result on filling up on fluids. After another couple weeks, my blood pressure has held steady, so I know it is doing its thing. And after the final days, still no spike in the readings, so I was hooked. In the thirty days, I have also lost seven pounds, very nice! It seemed to me the urban legend was the truth! The one negative, green tea is not the most tastiest of teas, it kind of has that hint of grassy seaweed taste, but you get used to it.

In addition, from what I understand, green tea has antioxidants to prevent sickness, make our skin feel smooth, and protect our memory. But by seeing the short term effects, I can say that I will make green tea a regular staple in my diet. I would not recommend green tea pills as they have caffeine in there, don’t want to be up into the wee hours of the morning! All in all, my thirty day test has proven that green tea has great positive properties that just can’t be ignored. Let’s see what other effects it has six months from now!
