Do you over-exercise?
Posted on December 26, 2013 3 Comments
Years ago, when I went to a store where herbs, supplements and various tinctures are sold the herbalist asked me how much I exercised and when I said “an hour a day,” he replied, “that’s too much.” An hour a day is ideal, but many people spend three or more hours a day exercising.

A triathlete told me he is drinking butter coffee before running, his timing has improved and he’s not hungry even after a hard training session.

Well, some people may have been eating more calories since exercising leads to an increase in appetite, but there’s more to this. Let me explain. When some […]

“When is the best time to exercise?” I was recently asked. It really depends on the individual, when they have the time, and the most amount of energy. I know that if I don’t exercise first thing in the morning, it will never get done. Some people are not morning people, or they don’t have […]

Back when I was in high school I would go to the gym and jog on the treadmill every day. A senior male gym member told me that I shouldn’t exercise every day so I stopped going as often. I think back and wonder why I listed to him. He was overweight, didn’t work at […]
