Thinking about Weight Loss plans and the the 5BX program

Weight Loss Programs: Which weight loss program will really work?
well why not call it a diet ?

Hi Laxmi

wihout meeting eyebal to eyeball
I think it is very presumptious for anyone to make such a diagnosis

I did not download your spread sheet because I dd not trust you
- spread sheets may contain active code and you are an unknown.

Obviously you hope to indirectly increase the sales of your book
and when dieting is going well we all feel like born again christians trying to make converts
and singing "come and join us"

One of the two points that you make that I will give you is "the psychology of the mind" is critical
but you express that concept very very clumsily, as if english is not your mother tongue,
or you do not think very clearly about the definitions of the words you use.

Substituting the definition for the word shows why
. . . .""The science that deals with mental processes and behavior." of the mind.

http://www.answers.com/psychology&r=67

I studied at an ashram in London and was taught how to meditate using a mantra
I do not believe in any religion - hinduism or christianity - and both are mechanisms of social control for example.

But an effective method of entering a meditative state of mind is however a very useful tool to have in ones mental tool box., part of "know thyself".

The other point you make is that walking is an essential part of any program of self improvement,
but for the pathologically obese (double so called "ideal weight")
too much walking could damage joints and limbs.

Swimming three lenghs three times a week is a far better way to start because the water supports all the bodyweight, and when muscle tone has been improved then serious walking may begin.

About 30 minutes exercise at a comfortable rate three tiems a week
or 11 minutes a day in your own home doing 5 Basic eXercises

"• The canadian federal government's first fitness initiative was researched in the 1950s by the RCAF. It resulted in the 5BX program.
• The program became famous worldwide. Even Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, regularly performed the exercises.
• The intensity of the exercises varied from level one to six. In the most complicated level, a person scored an A+ for performing many repetitions of five complicated exercises and a one-mile run in 11 minutes. "

I got the Penguin book in about 1960 and now yellowed,
I still regard itas one of my most treasured posessions.

I replaced the running and star jumps by gentler walking or swimming

ONLY two or three reps at first (2 or 3 repetitions)

1 - sit ups - stomach muscles
2 - lie on stomach and arch back - back muscles
3 - push ups with knees bent at first - arm and shoulders muscles
4 - bending and stretching - touching the floor between ones feet

(I like to add twisting here too)

5 - aerobics for 5 minutes vigourously
or 20 to 30 minutes gently (the best in my opinion)

get the book for the progession and targets
oops I see my version is not quite right LOL

For Teachers - CBC Archives

Students can continue the 5BX or XBX systems for a longer period of time, following their progression through the levels and charts. They may also choose to research other outdated fitness fads to determine which were ineffective (such as vibrating belts), and which were dangerous (such as stiff leg deadlifts, toe touches).

DOWNLOAD Getting fit - staying fit - personal fitness program 5BX.

Getting fit - staying fit - personal fitness program 5BX.: "NOTE: As with any exercise program if you are over 40 , I suggest you check with your doctor before undertaking any exercise plan. Also as with any unsupervised fitness program...take care..don't over exert.
The 5BX program was developed for the Royal Canadian Air Force by Bill Orban. They stopped using it 25 years ago. Some people say that some of the exercises are outdated and could be harmful - others use it and have no problems at all. In the end the choice is yours whether you take up 5BX. I personally have had no physical problems doing 5BX up to Chart 2 - C+"
