Health Begins With A Solid Foundation - Anthony Tornambe

When it comes to health and fitness, there are a great deal of sites which confuse the subject with weight loss and weight loss supplements. If you are looking for a quick way to shed the pounds, then this is not the blog for you. However, if you have a desire to have a long and healthy life and to feel better about yourself in the process, then read on. Health and fitness is an issue in America. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) more than one-third of the U.S adult populace is obese. And while the information of eating healthy and exercising has been available for years, the truth of the matter is that the general public is just too busy to dedicate the time to some of the nonsense which is published concerning Health and Fitness. However, this article should help you. It is specifically catered to you the busy person.

Why does this and most fitness advice start with your diet?

It is all about the input. Regardless of the exercises that you perform, the stress that you reduce, and the other elements of a healthy lifestyle that you practice, if your body is consistently poisoning itself with a diet which is less than ideal, then the former things will be moot Consider the following normal situation:

A person goes through a mega burger drive through and orders a salad for him/herself and a diet coke. They then order a kids meal for the child. When the meal arrives he or she snatches a few fries and passes the food back. Where it may appear to be harmless, there are a few points to consider. First, while you are eating a healthy salad, you are enabling the child to practice unhealthy living. Secondly, those few fries everyday will add up and add to your overall poor health. Finally, regardless of whether a soda says diet, it is mainly comprised of Sugar (and not the good kind). Anthony Tornambe

Now, I Anthony Tornambe, understand that busy schedules and the hustle and bustle from point A to point B may not allow for the average person to spend time in the kitchen cooking a balanced meal. That is OK. Yes, you should try to do so, but if you cannot there are alternatives to jumping in the mega burger fast food line. For example, you could:

• Stop by your local grocery story and purchase some sushi or seaweed rolls
• Go to a deli and purchase a whole-wheat sandwich (go easy on mayo and condiments)
• Pack a snack of almonds, nuts, and fruit in the morning to snack on until you get home
• Make a fresh salad by going to a whole foods grocery story or marketplace
• Stop by a buffet and fix a small plate of vegetables, fruit, and fish

Do you have to give up those foods you love?

No, you do not. Granted you do not want to be shoveling down a quart of ice cream after eating a large supreme pizza, but if you keep your portions and your appetite in check then there is no reason why you should not be able to enjoy the foods that you love. Health and Fitness is not a diet plan. It is a lifestyle choice based on the everyday decisions that you make. Consistently choosing to down fried chicken (or any fried food for that matter), sodas, chips, and junk food will result in poor health, obesity, and frustration at reaching your health and fitness goals. Anthony Tornambe

Remember, you are unique

One of the things which perturbs me the most about the health and fitness misinformation is that there seems to be a focus on diets and eating habits which support everyone. This is simply not so. You are unique. As such, your metabolism, your digestion, your blood pressure, cholesterol, and such are unique. If you are hypoglycemic, then your diet will have more sugar than a diabetic. Men, your balanced diets should have more proteins (do some research, the hunter and gathering genes come into play) than women. Likewise, women should have more soy based products in a diet.

Build up a good input to get a good output

As stated at the beginning of this article, health and fitness is not a diet plan. That being stated, you must have good input if you want to have a good output and longevity of life. It is just common sense. A vehicle cannot run properly if you wait 50,000 miles to do an oil change. The engine would lock up. In the same train of thought, your body cannot run if the fuel being put into it is deficient. If you know that your lifestyle has poor eating habits, talk with your doctor or nutritionist about what changes you can make and then consider doing a detox on your body to prepare it for a healthier way of living. - Anthony Tornambe

Get some rest before it kills you - Anthony Tornambe

All of the articles in this series so far have been about active things which you, the busy person, can do in order to live a healthier and longer life. And while activity is important, so is inactivity, specifically sleep. Yet, because we are just so busy, we neglect, as a whole, to get the proper amount of sleep each night.Gallup reports that about 40% of adults get less than the suggested 7 hours of sleep each night. I would venture to say that the number is higher simply based upon this fact. The time that you lay down to go to sleep and the actual hour you fall asleep are quite different. While you may lay down to go to sleep at 10pm if you do not fall asleep till 1am and have to get up at 5am you really only got 4 hours.  For your health and fitness, you need to have sleep, there is no way around it. Anthony Tornambe

Why is sleep so important?

Sleep is your reset button on your body. When you sleep more is going on inside of your body than when you are awake. Your body is realigning itself and getting everything in working order for the next day. Your brain is cataloging information which is relevant and what information needs to go into your vault of information that is not relevant. Your muscles are relaxing from walking around, typing messages, going up and down stairs, running errands, etc. The less time that you allow for your body to recoup, the more fatigued the muscles and your brain will become. 

How to fall asleep quickly

When I have visited friends and family members and they have complained about not being able to get to sleep, my first question is “well, is your room set up for you to sleep?”. In many cases I hear about the type of mattress that the person has and the type of pillows, but not really about the room. If you want to fall asleep quickly you need to make your room for two purposes and only two purposes: Sleep and procreation. That’s it. This means:

• Remove the television from the room. The odds are you have Tivo or a DVR, record and watch your program later.
• Remove distractions which can catch the eye
• Absolutely no cell phones in the bedroom. This eliminates the temptation to log onto social media. Anthony Tornambe

Additionally, I would argue against having a book beside the bed. Some people claim that reading relaxes them and helps them to sleep. This only works if the book is not engaging, and as a book which is not engaging is not often read, I would state that reading a book while in bed just encourages you to turn the page to see what happens instead of turning off the light.

What about naps?

Napping for short periods of time during the day is not a bad thing, unless of course you are on the clock in which case napping can get you fired. My suggestion in this would be to use your small breaks (15 or 30 min) to take a cat nap. Be sure to set an alarm that you will wake up to. Please note: If you are already extremely fatigued and you take a nap, then your body may actually become more fatigued as your consciousness is trying to tell you to slow down and reset.

I get a ton of sleep but I am still tired, why?

If you are one of the rare people that can get sleep in abundance, then you probably are not as busy as you think. But to answer the question, if you sleep more than 8 hours a night then you have reset your body’s clock. Studies from various universities have concluded that the pivot time for resetting your body is 8 hours (with a few exceptions). Once you get to 9 or 10 hours your body actually treats it as though you have only gotten 1 to 2 hours of sleep. So keep your sleep to 7 hours and you will be find. If you are anything like me, finding 7 hours will be hard enough to find.


There is a big difference between rest and sleep, and busy people should know the difference. Rest is something that is done while the mind can still focus on other tasks which need to be conducted. It is a brief break before activity is conducted again. Sleep is an unplugging from the cares of the world to reset. Ensure that you allow yourself sleep every day, the troubles of tomorrow will be there when you awake.

Should you have abnormal sleeping habits or find that you just cannot sleep consult a doctor or go to a sleeping clinic. They may be able to help you find a solution to your problem without having to use a sleep aid. - Anthony Tornambe
