1-1 Exercise Consultation

I am considering several sessions with someone to fine-tune my exercise program. I'm in my late 50s and want to do this in-person assessment to age as well as possible. I've exercised regularly (strength/aerobics/flexibility) for many years and am in good physical shape. Any suggestions as to the be...

Ever thought of asking you doctor?!?!?! people on discussion boards tend to go beyond their scope of practice. You never know what types of issues may rise from training after your surgery, always always always take the safe route and ask your doctor, the worst case senario is you'll be referred to...

I'm now concerned about how to begin weightlifting exercise again and am wondering if any of you have any suggestions. My surgery involved a 5-inch vertical cut thru the midline of the abdomen from th...

This is not a complete book about food in the sense that it does not list nutritional values, etc., but I'd like to suggest Walter Willett's book 'Eat, Drink and Be Healthy' as a good source of information for scientific studies about nutrition. I'm not a big fan of a particular diet plan, but think...

I've self-experimented over the years with eating times, and amounts and types of food. I find that I function better eating six times a day--modest sized main meals and three snacks, including something to eat before hitting the hay. If I don't eat before bed, my sleep tends to be more fitful. I do...

Has anyone rooted the cause of such high rates of prostate cancer? Is this cancer happening regardless of location or diet? Here are a few facts: There seems to be some connection between a high-fat, Western diet and developing prostate cancer. In the US, African-Americans have the highest incidenc...

Prostate Cancer Update

This is to let you know that I had surgery on 6/21 and am on the mend. No strenuous exercise yet--walking only--but I am reading on this site and getting my exercise vicariously. The surgery (prostate removal) was a complete success. The cancer was confined to the prostate. None was found in the lym...
