Primary Food: Movement

"Specie" by Allison L. Williams Hill

(Written May 1, 2012; expanded on March 2013.  I upload it today, March 24, 2014 because I think the information is still relevant.-Allison) 

A new series of studies on the effects of prolonged sitting showed the average adult used 90% plus of their time sitting. Greater than half of one’s daily involved sitting doing activities like watching television and driving to work and other places. Prolonged sitting was associated with positive death risk and it also increased the risk of osteoporosis. Activity up to 7 hours/wk is insufficient to mitigate the effects. 

Positive moves include:
  •  taking breaks and walking around or walking a flight of stairs up then down;
  • creating a stand-up desk so you will not be sitting as your work;
  • drinking more water to encourage walking to a rest room for elimination;
  • setting a timer to remind you to take a break, or
  •  increasing the distances between office equipment.

In my design work, I used the kitchen design rule that established the triangle setup distances between the refrigerator, the stove and the sink should add up to no more than twenty one feet.    Larger, more open kitchens have greater distances between these appliances and no one has complained about it.  Kitchens include more appliances like microwaves and may have an island containing smaller appliances usually organized along the perimeter.

To reduce weight:

- If you need to sit, remain upright.  By all means, do not lie down.  Digestive process slows down when the body is horizontal. 

-Reduce sitting immediately after eating.  Take a walk around the block. 

-Combine tasks by taking a walk around the house doing light chores.

-Don’t underestimate the power of gravity.  It helps move matter through your digestive tract. Movement may help form the shape of the accumulated of feces in the lower part of the colon aiding elimination.  Large masses can rip the rectum causing bleeding and pain.

Health Focus:
 Recently, it was estimated that Americans ate over a million chickens per hour.
I became a vegetarian 25 years ago.  If I am not eating any bird, who is eating my share?

A health coach (or health counselor) is a wellness guide and supportive mentor. Together, we’ll work to achieve your goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, food cravings, sleep and energy. Through working with me, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.  
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that we look at how all areas of your life are connected and affected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
I lead workshops on nutrition, and offer individual and group health and nutrition counseling on weight management, emotional eating, self-image issues to professional women, caregivers, and healers.
