Slice-Your-Age-PodcastJuly 17, 2014 – Episode 42 – We take listener’s questions in this episode! Glenn asks how he can stretch out during his long driving/commuting times. Joe asks how he can get rid of his “love handles!” Mike, a long time runner, wants to know if he should see a chiropractor! Much more!
 
QUESTION:  What can long distance drivers do when legs get sore and stiff?
Glen, a hiker from Maryland, legs get really sore and stiff from sitting in the car for hours at a time for his job. What can he do about his sore legs without changing his job?
 
ANSWER:
Many people have no choice in their work and have to do a lot of driving for their jobs. First he needs to get out and stretch every hour or two. He needs to get out of the car.
 
First, get out and walk around and get your circulation moving around. It would be great to even do some good old-fashioned jumping jacks.
 
Next, it is great to do some stretching. Hamstring stretches are a great stretch:  http://www.fitsugar.com/5-Easy-Hamstring-Stretches-1983373.
 
Another tip is take a rolling pin are roll out your muscles. Yes, a rolling pin from your kitchen. You can easily take this in the car and is easier to use than a foam roller on the roll. Here is the idea: http://www.rearickstrength.com/2010/12/how-to-use-rolling-pin-for-soft-tissue.html.
 
These are also GREAT things to do if you are sitting at your desks and computers for hours!
 
MINDFULNESS MATTERS
Be mindful when you drive. Do not zone out. Be present in the moment of where you are and where you are going when you drive.  16-20% of all motor vehicle accidents are caused by distracted driving.  60% of people admit to driving while fatigued and an astounding 15% of people have admitted to even falling asleep while driving. Be mindful while driving and when tired, please PULL OVER! Also, due to the body’s circadian rhythms they are less alert between 2:00-4:00am and 2:00pm-4:00pm. Be especially aware during these times and again pull over if you need to – your life and the lives of others are just not worth it.
 
QUESTION: What can you do about love handles?
Joe, a runner who runs 15-20 miles a week, called in wanting to know what he can do about his love handles.
 
ANSWER: FOOD!
The answer is one word = FOOD! If you are truly just eating lean meats, fruits, and vegetables then you will not have love handles. If you are having pie, cake, donuts, beer, and snacks and goodies that goes right to the love handle area – especially for men. “Great job on your running Joe! This comes right smack down to eating my friend!” says Dr. Dave. “Eat your biggest meal in the morning, then less at lunch, and least amount at dinner,” says Yoko.  You really need to get rid of all the artificial foods and sweets. Try to have as much fresh whole foods as possible. You will lose weight and lose those love handles. You can take your measurements and do the “naked test”. Stand in front of a full length mirror naked and look at yourself head to toe and see where it is you want to lose some pounds.
 
JUICING
Dr. Dave and Yoko want to thank Dr. Dave’s brother, Richard Madow, for his Breville juicer. They eat a wonderful healthy breakfast and wanted to take it up a notch. Here are the Breville juicers to check out: http://www.breville.ca/beverages/juicers.html. They also didn’t want a store bought juice without any preservatives. Just today Dave and Yoko had a juice with romaine lettuce, apple, cucumbers, pear, celery, and radishes.
 
There is a guy named Joe who was over 100 pounds overweight who inspired them to get a juicer. His movie and story is very interesting and we encourage you to check him out: http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/.
 
QUESTION: Should I use a chiropractor?
Listener and fan Mike called in and just read an article how chiropractors can help runners. Mike would like to know what are some of Dr. Dave and Yoko’s thoughts about chiropractors for people into fitness and exercise.
 
ANSWER:
Getting checked out by a professional massage therapist or chiropractor or doctor can be a great idea. Ask them questions. Ask if they deal with people into physical fitness. Ask them how their treatment plans work. “Chiropractors work on bones and Massage Therapists work on muscles,” says Yoko. These two can be a great combination for your health.
