    Vitamins, these are vital, Part 13 , CoEnzyme Q10, almost a Vitamin.




    Vitamine was the term coined by Casimir Funk, a Polish Biochemist, (1884-1967) for the unidentified substances present in food which could prevent the diseases scurvy, beriberi, and pellagra. This is the pioneer work in the study of vitamins in which Funk reviews his research work and postulates his theory of the existence of vitamines, essential factors in the diet.  We continue our series on the Vitamins.   Part 13  CoEnzyme Q10.

    "Toxic Fat: When Good Fat Turns Bad" , Dr. Sears' new book! 

    Dr. Sears has done it again.  This is his 10th book and it continues his conversation about how inflammation caused by excess body fat (especially the visceral, beer gut fat) is the culprit behind many of our acute and chronic problems.  Fat can also create a vicious cycle in which we are in a chronic state of hunger which leads to more overeating and more fat and more inflammation.  Many Americans are in this chronic spiral and find themselves helpless to cut back on their eating.  A victim of their fat!!  The Zone Diet with it's emphasis on High Doses of Quality Fish Oil, adequate low fat protein, lots of fruits and vegetables is the perfect recipe for this dilemma.  Remember the Zone is only a meal away!!

    Let's learn about NEAT, Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis and Weight Control

    Dr. James A. Levine at the Mayo Clinic has devoted much of his career studying NEAT.  He writes that "You can expend calories in one of two ways. One is to go to the gym and the other is through all the activities of daily living called NEAT (Non-exercise activity thermogenesis). It appears that NEAT is far more important for calorie-burning than exercise in nearly everyone."  These two graphs from Dr. Levine's work show that those who walk and stand more are more likely to be lean.  Recent studies in mice have also shown that our desire for more NEAT activity may be genetically based.  In other words some people may have genes that make them do more NEAT activity resulting in leanness. You may have been born to be a couch potato. There may be a Laziness Gene!!!  It is postulated that couch potatoes could try to sit/lie harder or faster, or....

    "Muscles Matter", American Medical Association Newspaper Article!

     Jeff Williamson, MD, a geriatrician at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina, can be persuasive about the benefits of building muscle. "I like to say there are really only two reasons why older people end up in a nursing home. One is that their brains stop working, and the other is that their muscles stop working. Especially their leg muscles." This echos precisely one of my slides in my SuperSlow Seminar about the Science behind Strength Training in which I say that the only two things that we really fear as we age is Loss of Mental Function and Loss of Physical Function.

    Ralph Bender, Long time Client, honored as Champion Child Advocate

    The DEXA Scanner is Fixed and Salute to John Garcia, our Hologic Regional Engineer!!


    We are happy to announce that the DEXA Bone Density and Body Composition Scanner is now FIXED!!  It required the primary Xray Tube to be replaced and it is working great.  John Garcia, shown with the guts ripped out of the the scanner is our Regional Field Engineer for Hologic who manufactures and provides service for the Scanner. John is a San Antonio native and has worked on these scanners for the past 4 years.  The DEXA Scanner is just one of the ways we at Inside Outside can provide a unique level of service not available at other gyms.  The Scanner is a research level tool for body composition and only a few of the scanners in San Antonio have this capability.  Thanks John for all your help!!
