Weight loss journeys are never easy, but planning your weight loss journey can make the process easier. This article will discuss how to plan a successful weight loss journey, so if you want to know more, keep reading. Why is it important to plan your weight loss journey? Weight loss journeys are not easy. You have to be willing to set a goal and reach for it, but they’re also not impossible. In order to achieve your weight loss goals, you may need to take some time planning. Planning can help you understand yourself better and what resources or things that will help push you forward.  It will also help keep all aspects of your life on track while dieting, since it’s easy to let other parts of life slip while focusing on weight loss goals.

If you have been wondering how to lose weight in the face or specific parts of your body, planning your journey will make it easier to accomplish set goals. It’s always best to plan rather than wonder what to do next.

1. Plan small goals

Small goals are easy, and they’re a great way to stay motivated and keep you on track. For instance, if your weight loss journey goal is to lose 50 pounds in 2 months, that’s a lofty goal that can be difficult to achieve even with hard work and determination. If you break that down into one pound per week, it’s easier to reach the same result by losing 14 pounds (one pound each week for 7 weeks). When planning out small goals, make sure they’re not too easy, or else you’ll never get the motivation you need to continue moving forward. Small goals help you focus on eating healthier foods rather than just limiting your calorie intake.

2. Plan out your workout schedule

When planning to lose weight, you need to plan out how much time you will be exercising each week. If you are not currently working out, it’s important to start slowly. Don’t try to jump right into an intense workout for fear that you won’t stick with it or that it will take too long. You should start by walking 15 minutes a day at least 5 days a week and build from there as your endurance allows until you’re able to do more intense cardio workouts several times per week for 30 minutes or more at a time depending on the intensity of the exercises selected. By starting small, you’re more likely to stick with your workouts and less likely to get discouraged when you don’t notice a difference in your body after a week or two.

3. Keep a food journal

Keeping a food journal can be a big help in keeping you accountable. A simple notebook or app on your phone is all you need. Record what foods you’ve eaten and how you felt after eating them. Over time, this will make for great feedback if certain foods don’t work well with your

THURSDAY, June 17, 2021 (HealthDay News) — Your health and fitness apps may have privacy issues that put your personal information at risk, researchers warn.

“This analysis found serious problems with privacy and inconsistent privacy practices in mHealth [mobile health] apps. Clinicians should be aware of these and articulate them to patients when determining the benefits and risks,” lead study author Muhammad Ikram and his co-authors concluded. He’s a computing lecturer at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.

The researchers looked at more than 15,000 free health apps in the Google Play store and compared their privacy practices with a random sample of more than 8,000 non-health apps.

Health apps — including step and calorie counters, menstruation trackers and symptom checkers — collected less user data than other types of mobile apps. But 88% of health apps could access and potentially share personal data, the research team discovered.

About two-thirds of health apps could collect ad identifiers or cookies, one-third could snag a user’s email address and about one-quarter could identify the mobile phone tower linked to a user’s device, potentially revealing the user’s location.

Only 4% of health apps transmitted data (mostly user’s name and location information), but that’s a substantial percentage and probably less than actual data transmissions by the apps, according to the authors.

The report was published online June 16 in the BMJ.

The investigators also found that almost 88% of data collection operations and 56% of user data transmissions were on behalf of third-party services, such as external advertisers, analytics and tracking providers. And 23% of user data transmissions occurred on insecure communication channels.

The top 50 third-parties were responsible for most data collection operations (68%), most commonly by a small number of tech companies, including Google, Facebook and Yahoo!, the study authors noted in a journal news release.

The researchers also found that 28% of the mobile health apps did not offer any privacy policy text, and at least one-quarter of user data transmissions violated what was stated in the privacy policies. But just over 1% of user reviews raised concerns about privacy.

While there are some things users can do to safeguard their privacy, “we must also advocate for greater scrutiny, regulation, and accountability on the part of key players behind the scenes — the app stores, digital advertisers and data brokers — to address whether these data should exist and how they should be used, and to ensure accountability for harms that arise,” Canadian researchers wrote in an accompanying editorial.

It appears the era of “a couple of Motrin should do the trick” could be nearing its end in the Army. 

“My sergeants major right now, they hurt. Their bodies hurt,” Col. Phillip Kiniery, the commander of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, told Task & Purpose last week. “I need to make sure that the next group of leaders and senior leaders in the Army don’t feel like I feel physically. That they’re healthy … I wish we thought this way when we were going up.” 

The 4,500-soldier brigade is part of an effort to address injuries early and give soldiers more access to physical and occupational therapy through the Army’s holistic health and fitness program, which was announced in 2017 and officially put into Army policy last year. It focuses on total wellness, not just physical fitness, and urges mental and spiritual wellbeing, getting enough rest, eating well, and, more simply, just taking care of yourself. 

Referred to internally as H2F, the holistic health and fitness program encourages soldiers to take better care of their minds and bodies, not simply push through the pain after an injury, and emphasizes learning how to physically train properly. And at least one brigade commander is hoping that with that kind of change, the next generation of Army leaders won’t have the same kinds of aches and pains as, you know, all of you do. But to do that will require a certain level of humility from leaders. 

Paratroopers assigned to 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, utilize the physical training strength and conditioning coaches at the Falcon Holistic Health and Fitness Center (H2F) on October, 18, 2021 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. (U.S. Army/Staff Sgt. Andrew Mallett)

“That’s what I’m fighting every day: ‘We’re the 2nd Brigade, 82nd, we’re going to jump into combat anywhere in the world, we’re the 82nd Airborne Division,’” Kiniery said. “Like hey sergeant, I got it. You can kill anything, you can jump out of every aircraft, but just stop and listen to this strength coach because you’re doing it wrong.” 

While the program could bring positive changes to soldiers everywhere, it will likely be years before it’s implemented Army-wide. There are currently 28 Army brigades — located at Fort Bragg, Fort Drum, Fort Polk, Fort Bliss, and Joint Base Lewis McChord — who have started implementing the holistic health and fitness program. In 2023, the Army will start pushing it out to 10 more brigades a year for the next 10 years.

Kiniery, whose brigade was one of the first Army units to start integrating trainers and health professionals, walked Task & Purpose through the brigade’s training center on Oct. 18. Inside the facility, soldiers can find the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) office, the equal opportunity office, and the chaplain’s office, as well as a sports medicine clinic, nutritionists, and a gym. It serves as a place where “a paratrooper can come to one location … and ideally get

ACL damage is among the most common knee injuries. If left unmanaged, this condition can sideline most people. Athletes and non-athletes alike are vulnerable to this painful condition. If you seek treatment for Bayonne ACL tear, contact James Lee, Jr., MD. Alongside his team, the doctor understands the complex components of the knee joint. He has unmatched skill and experience in handling knee complications so that you can resume your regular activities. Book your appointment online or by phone today if you encounter problems in your knee for effective treatment.

What is the ACL?

ACL stands for the anterior cruciate ligament. Your knees comprise three bones that form the hinge joint: the tibia, kneecap, and femur.

The thighbone is the femur. Ligaments refer to tough, fibrous tissues that connect bones and keep the joint together. They work to stabilize the leg so that it can bend and maintain flexibility without the knee separating. The ACL runs diagonally down the middle of the knee, beneath the patella (kneecap). The principal purpose of this ligament is to keep the tibia from pulling ahead of the femur and stabilize the knee, preventing it from rotating.

How Does the ACL Tear?

Sports and exercise are the most common causes of ACL injuries. Cutting, whereby you suddenly slow down and change direction, is a common cause of tear in athletes. When a basketball player tries to pass the ball and change direction quickly, they may cause an ACL tear by pivoting from the knee instead of the foot.

Other causes of ACL tear include:

  • Jumping
  • A blow to the knee
  • Sudden stopping

Partially or fully severing the ACL is a possibility. Overextension, which weakens the tissue, is the cause of injury for specific individuals. Dr. Lee evaluates the knee to see how much damage the ACL has sustained.

Symptoms of an ACL Tear

ACL symptoms vary depending on the intensity of the injury. Some common indications include:

  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • A popping sensation
  • Giving in of the knee
  • Poor range of motion

If you seek to avoid any potential damage, every knee injury should be treated by a doctor. An ACL tear can appear as a result of damage to another region of the knee as well. Because the joint has so many aspects, any knee pain should alert you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lee.

What is the treatment for an ACL tear?

In most cases, reconstructive surgery is required after a ligament injury. Dr. Lee will examine the joint’s damage and develop a treatment plan that includes the following:

  • Physical therapy
  • Rest
  • Surgery where necessary

Other Services

Besides ACL tear, Dr. Lee and his team further specialize in numerous top-notch treatments, including:

  • Rotator cuff
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP0
  • Sports medicine
  • Direct anterior hip replacement
  • Shoulder replacement
  • Knee pain
  • Arthroscopic knee surgery
  • Hip replacement
  • Hip pain

Bottom Line

Irrespective of being an active athlete or not, you can suffer an ACL tear. As such, it is imperative to partner with an outstanding provider for … Read More...
