Patient discussion about workout

Q. What do you eat after a workout? What do you recommend a person eat after a cardio session? what about a lifting session?

A. I hear swimming is good for you also. Very low impact and the benefits are amazing.

Q. Is beer a good post-workout drink? We have an argument here within our friends. Please settle our argument. Is beer a good post-workout drink?

A. no, beer is not good for you after a workout.

Q. What is a best home workout for weight loss around the stomach and waist? I can't go outside a lot, so I do Pilates. I want to know more workouts for weight loss.

A. There is no natural way to target your stomach fat. You can pay for lipo suction, but that is the easy and expensive way out. Plus if you don't put the work into it then you won't appreciate the results as much.

I would focus on a total body fat loss program. Combining cardio with resistance training and sprinkling in some high intensity interval training is a great way to boost your fat loss. Then focus on eating healthier. Start off slowly though so that you don't get overwhelmed and feel like quitting. Go for walks, eat a few meals a day that are healthier with fruits and veggies, then eat regularly for the rest of the day. The point is to gradually transform your habits into healthier ones.
