HUFFPOST PERSONAL 11/05/2018 12:38 pm ET By Jamie Feldman “I could never run a marathon.” “The longest I run is from the couch to the fridge.” “You’re crazy.” That’s pretty much what I heard when I told anyone with ears that I was running the New York City Marathon. And I did tell anyone with ears. It wasn’t all that long ago that I would have had the same reaction. A longtime listener and first-time caller, I’ve ugly cried on the streets of Brooklyn watching thousands of runners glide by in neon waves and questioned year after year why anyone would willingly put themselves through one mile of running, let alone 26.2. Then, about a year ago ― Oct. 14, 2017 ― I ran my first race, a half marathon. It was only eight weeks before then when ran more than a mile for the first time. Ever.

We now know that this type of fat, called visceral fat, is metabolically active and churns out stress hormones like cortisol and inflammatory substances called cytokines that affect you body’s production of insulin. The result is worse than just being generally overweight; you’re looking at increased risks of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, some cancers, and even dementia.Unfortunately, some women are just more prone to carrying weight in their middle instead of their hips and thighs. Sometimes, it’s genetics—maybe your mother was more apple-shaped. Belly fat can also increase around menopause, or … [Read more...] about 13 Ways to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat For Good
Price: $115Type: RoadWeight: 8.0 oz (M), 6.7 oz (W)The Right Shoe For: Steep climbs and cushioned descentsBuy Men’s Buy Women’sThe original Hupana marked Hoka’s foray into the running-lifestyle category—a shoe that looks good casually, but will still get the job done for your daily miles. Its sequel shares nearly all the DNA from the first version, and performed in the lab nearly identically to its predecessor, maintaining Hoka’s classic firm cushioning and quick, rolling ride. The biggest changes in the Hupana 2 are purely aesthetic, which is certainly not a knock to the 2, because they’re why we really love it. Hoka outfits the model with a brand new knit upper that’s styled enough for kicking around in jeans or running errands—something that is hard to say of the brand’s beefier rocker-soled shoes. And combined with its light weight, testers liked that the shoe had them covered for workouts and weekends alike, especially if they … [Read more...] about The Hupana 2 Has a Sleek New Style, but Still Rolls like a Hoka
FILE (iStock) Of all the things in life that people might really want to delegate, losing weight has to be close to number one. In a world in which kids get participation trophies; test scores can be enhanced and special interest groups lobby for set asides there is one area in which the merit system is supreme – getting in shape. And so many of us have that on our To Do list. In a “shocking” report out this month, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that almost half of Americans are trying to lose weight. And, wait for it, almost 6 in 10 women were working it. I would love to meet the other four women to learn their secrets in avoiding the perennial New Year’s resolution that has the permanence of a tattoo on so many people’s lives. They certainly are saving money. In fact the one thing you are sure to lose when seeking weight loss is your cash. Americans spend more than $60 billion dollars trying to lose weight each … [Read more...] about Hey America, lose weight, not your temper. You can do it!
When Amber Dodson needs a break from her rigorous workout regimen, she steps nearly naked into a high-tech machine that looks like a giant energy drink can. Only her head is visible as the temperature in the chamber plummets to minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit for three minutes, liquid nitrogen vapor billowing down the sides.“I tend to get extremely inflamed and I don’t like taking days off,” said Dodson, 36, who pays $299 a month for up to 30 sessions at Coast Cryo in Marina del Rey. “It’s been a lifesaver because I can’t deal with sore muscles and bad sleep.”Cryotherapy, a freezing treatment used by elite athletes such as LeBron James and Michael Phelps, is just one of the pricey injury recovery and prevention strategies that are exploding in popularity in Los Angeles — despite a lack of scientific evidence in many cases to support their efficacy. Cryotherapy alone is expected to grow to a $5.6-billion global industry by 2024, up from $2.5 … [Read more...] about In L.A. today, fitness can mean IV drips, vitamin shots and a daily freeze at -292 degrees
