You Want to Really Sweat Out Toxins and Burn Fat? Here's What You Should Do

jimbuchan.com
I wake up at 5 am but go out to run at 7 am or later. Why? I need to do a lot of house chores first. My wife and high school kid need my help in the morning so they can make it to their schools on time.

Before that, last summer vacation, I was able to run earlier---at 6 am when the day was still cool. But these school days, this seems almost impossible.

But I discovered something.

I found that jogging at 8 am made you sweat double or triple than if you ran earlier in the morning. Like this morning. I ran at past 8 am and man, did I sweat a lot! And I feel my stamina has also doubled, being able to run under harsher conditions, like a hotter day.

Just make sure it's not too hot for you. Avoid suffering heat strokes. And drink enough water before, during and after.

If you can jog on a hot day (but not too hot), it'd make running on a cool day a piece of cake. You can easily beat cool-day runners in physical endurance. It'll also strengthen your heart and lungs.

Just don't punish yourself too much. If I feel I've run fast enough for some seconds and my lungs are about to give way, I often slow down or brisk walk. Then, after I catch my breath. I run again. But never stop. You have to keep walking. You may slow down walking but don't stop.

Check with your medical doctor first before you try this.

Jogging and running at 8 am and onward makes me sweat a lot, and I mean A LOT! Imagine the immense detox and fat burning you get! But make sure to stop before 9 am. a 30- to 40-minute jog is good enough for the day. Anyway, I still have my shadow boxing right after.

Here's how to complicate your run on a very hot day (if you don't want to complicate matters, don't run on a very hot day. Running at 8 am is enough. But we can get some lessons from this video, anyway/ So, here it is:

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
