Experts reveal health secrets for busy people

CNN) -- The mirror doesn't lie. Those buttery cookies and slices of ham from the holidays are showing up in the wrong places on your body.

Make specific goals and put the list in a place where you will be reminded of them, said Dr. Melina Jampolis.

1 of 2 To help you start the new year right, CNN.com asked a few well-known nutritionists and personal trainers for tips on keeping those resolutions to eat right and get healthy.

The most common excuse for not exercising is that people don't have enough time.

Keeping in mind people's hectic schedules, the experts suggested ways to fit in exercises during work, grocery shopping and family time. Even a 10-minute workout can help people inch closer to better fitness, trainers said.


Dr. Melina Jampolis, a San Francisco, California, physician nutrition specialist, is the diet and fitness expert for CNNhealth.com. She focuses exclusively on nutrition for weight loss and disease prevention and treatment.

1. Go for very specific goals.

Make an actual list. Don't be vague. Instead if "looking better," write down specifics, such as being able to run around with kids at the park or not wearing a baggy T-shirt to the beach. It's an internal motivator.

"When I see their motivation wavering, I say, 'Remember why you're doing this? Isn't it super important to keep up with kids in the playground next spring?' " Jampolis said.

Put that list where you are constantly reminded, such as inside a wallet or the office desk, she said. iReport.com: Tell us about your healthy New Year's resolutions

2. Volunteer.

Good karma could be good fitness. Volunteer activities such as coaching a youth soccer game, walking shelter dogs or cleaning up a beach encourages movement and exercise, Jampolis said. When it comes to burning calories, think outside the gym.

"Look for active volunteer opportunities with any form of movement," she said.

Cheryl Forberg is a behind-the-scenes nutritionist for NBC's show, "The Biggest Loser." She is a registered dietitian and chef. She has a weekly blog and is the author of the book "Positively Ageless."

1. Make over your kitchen.

Get rid of foods that have lower nutritional values, such as white sugar, bread and pasta. If junk food isn't in your kitchen, you can't be tempted, Forberg said.

"There are so many temptations from the morning, stopping for coffee or someone has doughnuts in break room, or you go out for lunch and there are not many healthy choices," she said. "You're bombarded all day long making compromises for your eating habits. At home, count on everything that's there providing optimal nutrition for body."

2. Healthy snacking helps.

Having a snack sustains healthy blood sugar levels and energy. This way you don't feel famished and end up overeating. She recommends a piece of fruit with a protein or healthy fat -- perhaps a few nuts with an apple, a cheese stick or a carton of yogurt for a snack.

"Combining protein and carbohydrates keeps you full longer and sustains blood sugar longer and keeps your energy levels," she said.

The 100-calorie snack packs are not high-quality calories, she said. "It's processed food, and it's not healthy ingredients."


Cathe Friedrich is a certified group fitness instructor who launched a video empire of step aerobics in the 1980s.

1. Sneak in a workout at the grocery store.

Carry a basket instead of pushing a shopping cart around the store. Switch the arms and bend them to hold the basket at a 90-degree angle to isolate the biceps.

"Pop out a few curls with it if you don't care what people think," Friedrich said.

Lifting heavy items such as 40-pound dog food bags can also be a form of weight training. When you're lifting heavy things, engage your core, bend your knees, stand up and exhale, she said.

2. Do easy workouts in the office.

"If you're officebound, get a stability ball," Friedrich said. "It puts you in good alignment, and you're getting work done."

The ball forces the body to balance and activates the lower back.

If you have a private office, squeeze in a few lunges, squats crunches or push-ups.

Patrick Murphy is a personal trainer who has worked with celebrities including Eva Longoria, Mario Lopez and Judd Apatow. He trains stunt coordinators and actors for action films.

1. Schedule your workout at the same time

"We're creatures of habits," he said. "One way to reach a fitness goal to becoming healthy is to create a body clock for exercise. If you exercise at 7 a.m. two to three times a week, your brain will trigger it -- telling you it's time to go and you'll crave exercise."

If your workout time fluctuates all the time, you won't acquire that body clock, he said. By the eighth or ninth time of working out on a schedule, it develops into a habit. "Consistency over time will get you there," Murphy said.

2. Visualize what your body is going to be.

In the same way that athletes visualize achieving their goal, use this mechanism to reach personal fitness goals. Visualize what you want your body to look like.

Murphy said it's like meditation, to be done before going to bed or after getting up. Visualize your ideal body and try to shape your habits and behaviors.

"Whenever you want to have that muffin or that junk food, visualize what you don't want your body to be," he said. "It keeps you away."

Robert "Trainer Bob" Dothard is a personal trainer, martial arts expert and motivational speaker. He owns a Fitness Together franchise in Atlanta, Georgia, and has worked with CNN's Fit Nation programs.

1. Make a daily 10-minute workout commitment.

"People have a million and one excuses, and many are legitimate," he said. "Ten minutes is a great start. It's a creation of habit, that's going to move you in the right way."

Although a 10-minute workout will not make you fit or lose much weight, it's a step toward change.

2. Get a workout with your kids.

When Dothard weight trains in his basement gym, he brings his youngest son and a few balls. This way, Dothard can keep an eye on his son while exercising.

"He throws [balls] around the room while I work on weight training," Dothard said. "He wanders around the room, and I get 30 minutes of exercise in."

Busy moms can use this strategy to squeeze in a workout, he said.

Dishing up tasty morsels of wisdom

In the wake of holiday gluttony, the "Biggest Loser" nutritionist is headed to the Twin Cities to spread her wisdom on shedding pounds and staying youthful.

By PAUL LEVY, Star Tribune

Cheryl Forberg left the land of hockey pucks to become a chef for Wolfgang Puck. Now Forberg -- who grew up by the State Fairgrounds, where deep-fried curiosities on a stick are considered delicacies -- is the consulting dietitian for NBC's "The Biggest Loser."

"I definitely did go to the State Fair," said Forberg, whose specialties are far cries from the cheese curds or lefse she became acquainted with in St. Paul. "I developed a cherry chili. I guess that's a little out of the ordinary."

Forberg, now a California-based anti-aging nutrition expert who lectures and gives cooking demonstrations across the country, has had a career that's been anything but ordinary. A presence on the set of the most popular weight-loss show on TV, Forberg returns to Minnesota Friday to talk about her latest book, "Positively Ageless," at a dinner at the Edinburgh USA Golf Course in Brooklyn Park.

From grade school near Como Park to the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, Forberg says she's always been interested in food. Her dad baked bread on weekends and her mom was a great cook, but Forberg never intended to make a career of it.

Before culinary school, she was an international flight attendant.

"I was from Minnesota and I'd never been anywhere," she said. "I enjoyed the travel, but I got tired of saying, 'Chicken or beef?'"

But after culinary school, she didn't want to just prepare meals -- which she did for restaurants, private clients and for Puck.

"There weren't a lot of chefs who knew about nutrition," said Forberg.

She earned a nutritional degree at the University of California, Berkeley, then got a real education working with menopausal women who had breast cancer.

Forberg learned about the aging process, was introduced to "The Biggest Loser" and co-wrote the eating plan for the show.

"Two seasons ago, 225,000 people auditioned for the show," Forberg said. "I don't know if they were all morbidly obese. That's the state of affairs today, which is sorry. But it was nice to know that so many people wanted to get their lives on track."

After a final cut, the winners who hope to be Biggest Losers are flown to Los Angeles for a "very comprehensive" physical, Forberg said. When tests are completed, a "cast" is selected.

From there, what you see on TV is hardly the whole picture. Off camera, there are medics on the set, monitoring contestants who go through a rigorous exercise program. And there is Forberg, the hidden cast member who became so popular that she started a "Biggest Loser"-related blog, www. cherylforberg.com/blog, to share information with viewers.

Many of the morsels of wisdom Forberg offers TV contestants can be found in "Positively Ageless: A 28-Day Plan for a Younger, Slimmer, Sexier You."

"There are common denominators with people with weight problems," she said. "They eat lots of fast foods, skip meals and have no idea how many calories their body needs. They eat in the car. Or standing up. And some of them know that their days are numbered if they continue what they're doing."

'Biggest Loser' standout visits Grand Rapids

Sunday, January 04, 2009 By John GonzalezThe Grand Rapids Press

Is your New Year's resolution to lose weight? Pete Thomas of "The Biggest Loser" lost 185 pounds when he was on the show three years ago, and now he goes around the country, meeting fans and motivating others to get into better shape.

I first talked to him in March when I was writing in my "Going Gonzo" blog about Detroit auditions for a new season of "The Biggest Loser: Couples."

Thomas, who is from the Ann Arbor area, was offering tips about how to get onto the weight-loss reality TV show.

He knows what he's talking about. Not only did he win $100,000 as the "at home" winner of "The Biggest Loser" Season 2, his tips led to several Michigan couples landing on a new season of "The Biggest Loser: Couples," which debuts at 8 p.m. Tuesday on NBC-TV.

You'll find more information in another "Going Gonzo" blog about the new cast, which features several firsts, including some of the show's largest contestants.

The Michigan couples include: Carla Triplett, 36, and her best friend, Joelle Gwynn, 41, of Southfield; Ron Morelli, 54, and his son, Mike Morelli, 18, of South Lyon; and Helen Phillips, 47, of Sterling Heights, and her daughter, Shanon Thomas, 29, of Centerline.

"I think it's the best season ever," Thomas said of the new show. "It has the most ethnic diversity, the biggest contestant, the oldest couple and the youngest person."

Thomas has managed to keep off the weight dropped from his original weigh-in of 401 pounds on the show.

Since his workouts with trainer Jillian Michaels, Thomas has made several national appearances, including spots on "The View," "The 700 Club," and been featured in People magazine, Runners World and TV Guide.

He recently launched his successful Web site, WinningMan.com, and continues to inspire people every day with his free, trademarked seminar, "Lose it Fast, Lose it Forever."

In it, Thomas said, he introduces "the principle that to win at health and wellness, you must master your mind, manage your mouth and multiply your muscles."

The Biggest Loser: Couples Begins Fresh

January 6, 2009 08:37:36 by DA Southern

The Biggest Loser Couples begins the New Year bigger than ever as we see a slew of firsts for the show. The sad part of this season is the amount of weight the couples are carrying; a whopping 7000 pounds spread among the 22 people who comprise the 11 couples. Not only that, there are a bunch of records falling immediately for The Biggest Loser from the heaviest woman at 379 pounds, the heaviest contestant ever at 454 pounds, the oldest couple and the youngest man at 18 years. Season 7 looks to have all the ear-marks of a great season full of dramatic results and with the excitement of the last season fresh in our minds, and the season for diet and exercise among us, it looks to be quite a season of first for The Biggest Loser and Bob and Jillian look to be at the top of their games.

Bob and Jillian started off the show by telling us how big America has gotten and how you are not helping yourself if you are sitting there eating Ice Cream while you watch. Great, already with the guilt.

The contestants were first informed of their being selected for the show by Alison Sweeney and everyone screamed in joy. That

The Biggest Loser Couples Sends The Oldest Home

January 13, 2009 08:28:58 by DA Southern

The Biggest Loser Couples, minus all but two actual couples, gets down to serious business as each of the teams work at losing weight without their partners at staying on the ranch for thirty days; the amount of time host Alison Sweeney told then they would have to remain at the ranch for their partner to return. With the stakes so high, the pressure to lose has never been greater for The Biggest Loser contestants.

Each of the remaining members of the couples pledged to be the last one standing at the ranch as we watched the other members of the couples go home to train for their journey back to the ranch. As the home-bound couples cleaned out their refrigerators and set a course on training, the losers at the ranch were embarking on their next challenge.

Host Alison Sweeney told the losers that this was a game of choices and lined the losers up at a line and started offering money to the losers to leave the game. Alison

The Biggest Loser was still recovering form the surprise elimination of Damien over Joelle last week as even Bob thought his unmotivated team member was probably headed out the door. With another exciting week of Joelle trying to get her team mate, Carla, back and Bob pulling his short hair out, there are destined to be fireworks as we edge closer to the couples reuniting that were pulled apart during the opening episode of The Biggest Loser.

The Biggest Loser Episode Recap: "Week 5"

Feb 3, 2009 10:00 PM ET by Robyn Ross

It's official: Six players are back on the ranch and ready to help their partners compete for the $250,000 prize. Rejoining we've got Aubrey (yellow), the mother of five; Laura (green), a former model; Shannon (pink), who's been overweight her whole life; Cathy (Purple), a recovering alcoholic and smoker; and Carla (silver). Bob reminds his team that they have to stay on course after hitting big numbers last week, while Jillian tells her team that they really need to fight because they're outnumbered and Bob is notorious for not allowing his teams to vote one of their own. Although I can't see Jillian doing that either.

Right away, the returning players weighed in, giving them a chance to prove how well they've done at home. It also provided an opportunity to win immunity for their team this week. The numbers, though admirable, seemed low in comparison to those on the ranch, and while some were still pleased, others were pretty disappointed. Shannon from the pink team was up first. She lost 15 pounds (in 30 days people!) for a percentage loss of 5.56. She did a nice job, but was disappointed, thinking she had lost more. Next up was Laura from the green team. She lost 7 pounds and was also upset, but her tough partner Tara told her to nut up and calm down. Team purple's Cathy lost 8 pounds, (2.85 percent), and was very happy with her progress. Aubrey from yellow team weighed in next, and the poor woman only lost 2 pounds (.85 percent), in the 30 days at home. She went on about how at least she knows she gained muscle, etc.Jillian quickly shot her down by saying that she shouldn't candy coat it because it's all B.S., and she still needs to lose 100 pounds. Period. Even Bob said that there were no excuses, and it's a good thing she's back in the house. I'd be pissed if I worked out four hours a day like she said she did and barely lost anything. Carla from the silver team weighed in next. She lost 20 pounds, (5.43 percent), and although her goal was 40, she thought this was more realistic. Then came powerhouse Sione, who lost 25 pounds (7.16 percent) and won immunity for himself and Filipe.

The first workout with the returning players involved some straight up butt-kicking, care of Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper. I have to say, I did one of Jillian's workout DVDs this weekend, and I'm still sore! I can only imagine what it's like in person. I loved when she explained her rules to the newbies. "You can throw up, scream, yell and swear. But no crying." Over on Bob's side, Sione was unstoppable, even making Filipe look bad. Blue is my new favorite team for sure.

This week's challenge proved to be a bit of a guessing game. The teams were each tied to a rope that was looped around a large barrel. The teams had to unravel enough rope to cross the finish line. The key was to keep looping around to gain rope, but guessing when you had enough to allow you across was the tough part. It sounds confusing, but it was pretty straightforward. Everyone became pretty exhausted early on and the yellow team decided to be risky and attempt to cross the line first. Luckily they had just enough rope to make it and won the choice between $5,000 dollars or a two-pound advantage at the weigh-in, the latter of which they chose.

The weigh-in was the first to be done in pairs since Week 1. Here's how the numbers fell:

Filipe and Sione lost 3 and 8 for a total 1.73 percent.

Mandi and Aubrey lost 6 and 10 for a total of 3.90 percent (with the advantage)

Carla and Joelle lost 9 and 0 for a total of 1.44 percent

Blaine and Dane lost 9 and 11 for a total of 3.04 percent

Laura and Tara lost 13 and 12 for a total of 4.84 percent.

Mike and Ron lost 9 and 4 for a total of 1.83 percent.

Helen and Shannon lost 9 and 9 for a total of 3.75 percent.

Kristin and Cathy lost 11 and 5 for a total of 2.74 percent.

OK, let's go back to Joelle and her whopping zero-pound weight loss. She did not get off easy with that one. Aubrey started to cry for Carla, who had clearly pulled her weight this week. Joelle tried to defend herself by ever so calmly saying, "I got into higher intensity this week and challenged myself to do things I hadn't done." Is she kidding?

So Silver and Brown fell below the yellow line, and during deliberation, Aubrey asked Joelle if she really wanted to be there, a question on everyone's mind I'm sure. She started to spit out her "higher intensity" diatribe again but was quickly shot down by Aubrey then Carla, who began to scream at her just as she did in Week 3. "It's not about you, it's about us," Carla said. When Joelle kept saying, calmly, that she has worked out, Carla became more upset. "I really want to be here and this is the second time I put my faith in your hands, and twice you failed me," she said. Can this friendship ever be repaired?

For once, the elimination ceremony had no surprises, and the message regarding who deserved to go home was read loud and clear. Pink, yellow, blue and green voted silver out (there was no need to reveal the other votes), and most of the cards were written with a huge "Joelle" and a tiny "Carla." Joelle felt she needed to say something, and although I agree with everyone for wanting her gone, it must be tough to feel like an outsider. She proceeded to tell her fellow contestants, "I don't want to get things twisted up here that I have not worked, that I have not leaned, that I have not pushed, that I have not persevered." She then went on to say that she's proud of the work she did and that although the scale has been low, her work ethic is good. I don't quite know about that one. In the end, there were hugs all around, but mostly for Carla and not Joelle.

Do you think these two will continue to lose weight at home? Which remaining team is your favorite?

'The Biggest Loser: Couples': The United States of Tara

By Sarah Jersild

February 17, 09:55 PM

It's topsy-turvy week on The Biggest Loser: Couples. A rock-hard competitor crumbles, an advantage turns sour, the gym is abandoned, and the strong don't necessarily survive. Plus -- Annoyances! Tears! Puking! And that's all from the same person!

This show is all about time spent in the gym. So what if the gym were off limits? Well, most of the teams will get to find out! Everyone has to schlep up the nearby mountain to pick a key, then down to see if said key opens one of the locks on the gym. Only two keys work, so only two teams will have gym access. People freak out -- what could we possibly do outside the gym? Well, you could jog up and down a mountain a lot. Just a thought...

This is one of those affirmation of humanity episodes, as everyone helps Ron. His bad knees mean he has a lot of trouble navigating the hill (and running is right out.) My favorite example: Helen tells Ron to lean on her because a certain patch is slippery. "If I fall, what are you going to do, pick me up?" Ron says. "Yes! I'm strong now!" Helen says. Those Bob workouts make anything possible!

Teams Pink and Brown get the keys -- Shanon uses her third eye, which Bob has opened during yoga, while Mike discovers that the ninth time is the charm. Both teams celebrate. Tara does not -- she was determined to get that key, because she needed to keep track of everything Laura is doing and she feels like she can't do that outside the gym. Oh, and then she pukes. A lot. And then some more. Tara's esophagus must be in really bad shape from all that stomach acid. Seriously -- get that looked at, Tara!

And now, we enter the Tara Meltdown show. Tara doesn't want to work out outside the gym! Tara can't deal with the 80s-aerobics-meets-lumberjack-fun-time workout that Jillian devises! Tara needs a break! Tara needs to shut up, is what Tara needs to do. Every time she freaks out and backs off of a workout, she tells Jillian that her REAL problem is that she's worrying about Laura not pulling her weight. I've been carrying her, and now I can't watch her every move! Tara has some serious control issues -- which is even more annoying than usual, because every time she complains about this, Laura is actually working, while Tara is whining. Jillian (and most of the viewing audience) tells Tara to worry about her own damn self, but Tara seems unwilling or unable to do so.

While it is never easy, especially for the trainers as they have to watch as the Losers find their own way for a while, it will be a test to see how the real world reacts to their dramatic weight loss to date and how they react to the real world.

The Biggest Loser Couples Are Teams No More

March 24, 2009 08:21:38 by DA Southern

The Biggest Loser Couples has finally reached that point in the season where it becomes Loser against Loser as we lose the teams and everybody goes the weight loss road alone. With a season that has seen more team changes than any previous season; we have still seen the most congenial group that has ever inhabited The Biggest Loser Ranch. With no teams to bind the Losers together, it will be interesting to see if the previous alignments will still hold.

The Blue Team dragged them selves into the common area and the Black Team was shocked to see Aubrey still at the ranch. After the Black Team consoled Kristin after learning that her mom, Cathy, was gone, Kristin was more committed than ever to stay to the end to make a difference.

Host Allison Sweeney met the Losers at the gym and the Losers all saw a bunch of t-shirts on manikins. Allison informed the Losers that they were all different colors and on their own and all got their original colors back. Allison then announced that they were all to choose their trainers for the rest of the journey.

It was a foregone conclusion that Filipe and Sione were going with Bob, but several of the other contestants struggled with their decision between Bob and Jillian. Tara was first up to choose and chose Jillian; Mike chose Jillian, which shocked Bob, because it came down to a coin-toss; Helen picked Jillian; Kristin decided on Bob, giving Bob his first trainee; Filipe and Sione went with Bob, of course; Ron went with Bob; Laura chose Jillian and Aubrey finished the trainer

The Biggest Loser Couples under goes yet another transformation as host, Alison Sweeney, leaves for some much needed baby action, and we get the past winners of The Biggest Loser, Season 5 winner, Ali Vincent and, Season 6 winner, Michelle Aguilar, who will take over for Sweeney, at least for the week. With records falling all over The Biggest Loser ranch and as the Losers continue to dwindle, we know that Ron will face a major medical condition that could threaten his remaining time at the ranch and, oh yeah, some eliminated Losers are coming back for a chance to get back into the game.

The Losers walked into the gym to greet Ali Vincent and she told the Losers that Allison had herself a baby girl. Ali told the losers that there were several Losers, Estella, Nicole and David, who were eliminated because of their partner
