What if there was a diet that was simple to follow, safe for the whole family, promoted a lean muscular body, could help prevent cancer, and tasted absolutely delicious? You’d think you hit the health and fitness jackpot right? You might even think it sounded too good to be true...but you’d be wrong.

There is such a diet, and it’s called clean eating. Clean eating isn’t so much a “diet” with a prescribed list of yes foods and no foods, rather, it is a concept that revolves around eating foods that are as close to their natural state as possible.

Studies show that sitting could be as detrimental to your health as smoking, increasing your long-term health risks and potentially shaving years off your life. This lack of movement causes our bodies to stop providing the energy and blood flow needed to regenerate cells and build muscle, and can lead to increased risk for long-term health issues including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and even heart disease.

Poor posture can not only appear unattractive, it can cause physical changes that left uncorrected, can lead to postural dysfunction, eventually causing structural changes that are very hard to reverse.

Your posture is the result of lifestyle habits, patterns and positions you hold your body in during the things you do every day. Working to improve your posture can improve your health and immediately appear taller, thinner and more confident.

I will share with you how you can quickly improve your appearance, however, long term, proactive postural improvements will take work, but it is well worth it! If you choose to do nothing, imbalances will eventually develop into conditions that will cause you pain.

Lose the Tummy Pooch

From an aesthetic point of view, an “anterior pelvic tilt” posture, doesn't look good, as this posture leads to an exaggerated low back arch making you look like you have a belly. Anterior pelvic tilt is common in people who sit a lot (that's pretty much all of us). We've sat in school for 12 years and if you went on to college and/or are at a computer for work you have sat a lot in your lifetime. This condition is also evident in people who resistance train the front of their legs more than the backside.

THE PROBLEM:

Tight Quads/Hip Flexors - If your quadriceps are stronger than your abs, they will pull the front of your pelvis down, shortening your front hip flexors.

Weak Hamstrings/Glutes/Abdominals - If the hamstring and glutes are not strong enough to hold the back of the pelvis down, the low back overcompensates, pulling the pelvis up and the hip flexors take up the load of what the hamstrings and glutes are supposed to be doing, making them that much more tight.

Other areas of your body try to compensate - For the strain on the low back, causing misalignment in the spine and other joints such as in the feet, ankles, and knees, or cause a forward head posture, placing a tremendous amount of strain on the upper back/shoulders.

QUICK FIX:

Immediately make your waist look smaller by tilting your pelvis backwards and contracting your abs and glutes.

Proactive Long Term Approach:
  • Strengthen your core, glutes and hamstrings
  • Loosen your quadriceps and hip flexors.
Stretch – overly tight muscles (quads, hip flexors and low back)
