Fitness Questions?: Kerrie Blumson has your answers!

Q. From Melody:
I need to tone up and lose some flab. How often a week would I need to exercise to do so?

Hi Melody,

For most people, the old saying 'Eat less, move more', is the answer to losing the flab. Sensible nutrition and sensible exercise that fits in with your lifestyle will give you the best results over the long term. Walking if you are currently inactive is a good start. Aim for 3 times per week for a min of 20-30 mins. or the first few weeks to allow yourself time to adjust and to get into the habit of allocating exercise time in your life. Then, you can start challenging yourself by increasing the duration of your walks and/or making them more challenging by increasing speed and including some hills. Strength training is the quickest and most effective for toning muscles. Once or twice a week is all you need for 15 - 30 mins (no you won't get huge muscles and look like a bloke!) All of my ladies do it and it works. The stronger you are and the fitter you are, the higher your metabolism and the more fat you burn each day. Controlling your weight is a whole lot easier. Good Luck! Kerrie

Germany puts on a happy face with Hypericum

Need a reason to smile? How about 66 million of them? According to recent figures that’s how many prescriptions are written yearly in Germany for the anti-depression herb hypericum (also know as St John’s wort). German doctors – and their patients – are so happy with the results they’re getting from hypericum that they’ve made it the most popular first line treatment for mild to moderate depression.

Don’t get mad, get Vitex

Hot off the press at the British Medical Journal is news of a trial that shows vitex agnus castus is “an effective and well tolerated treatment” for the relief of the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Results from the placebo controlled trial published in January 2001 revealed that symptoms including irritability, mood swings, anger, headache and breast soreness were all significantly reduced by taking an extract of the vitex herb.
