One Size Fits None

Don't worry about others when you work out -- fitness and healthy living is a personal experience.

By Susan Howard

Out on a 3 mile jog, my wife can run quickly past me kicking dust up from her heels as I plod behind.  I, on the other hand can get on a bike and speed past her little chicken legs, especially while hill climbing.  We are not the same in so many ways.

She has more slow twitch muscle fibers that suit her endurance runs, while I have more fast twitch muscle fibers that burst me up an incline at quick speeds.

Everyone is different.  Some people like red wine, some white (sorry Aziz).

The optimum workout for one person is not the best for another.  The optimum diet is not the best for another.  I think I was born a vegetarian and have to this day not really enjoyed eating meat products. In LA, the carb-free thing is really popular, but I hate it.  My body craves healthy carbs, it’s what I look for.  Certain seeds, nuts and products I really don’t digest well and others I love.  I can’t eat pine nuts, but I love almonds.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.

Don’t follow the trends, follow yourself.

Do you have good energy? Are your poops good? Then good on ya!

Stay Ready.
