Alexandra and I went to the Fitness and Health Bloggers Conference last week and I lost weight! Yup– two pounds gone in two days. And I wasn’t even trying. Hiking up a mountain and eating healthy food all weekend can do that for a person. And if YOU are a person with a weight loss goal, then the info below is for you.
Alexandra and I culled the key exercise and eating points from a presentation from Dr. James Hill, Executive Director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, University of Colorado. Dr Hill is a high falutin’, cutting edge, biggie wiggie PhD researcher in the weight loss, overweight, and obesity world. You can see how intimidated Alexandra was when we got to meet him up close at dinner* the evening after his talk. (see note at end of post)
Follow along with us via the twitter stream to catch the highlights direct from the most current studies on weight loss, diet, exercise, and weight maintenance. For those of you unfamiliar with twitter, just ignore the hashtags (pound signs #) and the letters or words that come after them. Go for the high fiber, nutrition dense, calorie burning main points in each tweet.
And just like in school when we were young, some people goofed off and passed funny and off-topic “notes.” So pay attention and read along to get the insider scoop as if you were in class with us — Laughing, learning the latest and most accurate info on obesity, fat, weight management, diet, and … seeing pictures of men in kilts.
If any tweet is hard to read, just click on it and it will pull up bigger. Just be sure to come back to this page to read, learn, comment, get smarter and more fit!
Watch for our radio interview of Dr James Hill coming in July. We ask him to share his research results on the BEST way to manipulate diet and exercise to decrease obesity.
* Dinners at the conference were sponsored by Chipotle, and the Anschutz Center‘s very own Bistro Elia. Breakfasts were also provided free and de-licious-leee by Attune Foods, Choose Cherries, and Driscolls Berries with Love Grown Foods and Better Whey of Life contributing food-food-glorious food as well. They are a big part of how I managed to come home 2 pounds lighter and in such a good mood!
