In-Home DVDs: I am a huge fan of beachbody's line of in-home dvds and subscribe to many of them myself. Check out p90 &; p90x.

That said, one should never exceed the comfort zone suggested by responsible medical advice. ...Read more

Walking, bike, swim: In general, I’d recommend an aerobic activity such as walking, cycling, or swimming. You can self adjust the intensity and stop when fatigued.

Also, some gentle stretching is helpful especially after doing some aerobic exercises to prevent the muscles from tightening up. ...Read more

I workout every day. I do cardio 7 days a week and lift about 5-6. On my easy day, I feel like I can't eat as much or any protein. Should I eat it?
Yes: Sounds like you're pretty active into fitness and protein should be a big part of your diet. The amount of protein you take daily depends on your goals, muscle building vs. Cutting down vs. Fat loss. I recommend 1.2 to 1.5 mg/kg of protein a day in order to maintain positive Nitrogen (anabolic) balance. Go to www. Bodybuilding.

Is it best to rest easy when you have sinusitus or can you work out out if you feel your up to it?
Not really: Weight loss requires reducing calories consumed below calories burned. Without exercise this is difficult to maintain, thus the weight tends to return. Start with a short daily walk and progress until you reach 30 minutes of exercise daily. Combined with a low-glycemic index diet this will allow you to steadily lose weight and then maintain it. ...Read more

Find partner: Workouts, whether upper body (in your case), lower body or cardio can be a 'drag' after a while. My best advice as a sports medicine physician and endurance 'athlete' is to find a work- out partner w/ similar work- out goals as you and train together... If unable to do so then work w/ a certified personal trainer who can keep your work- outs more fun and goal/ oriented. Best of Luck! ...Read more
