Fitness Doesn’t Work for Me!

Hey TriSystem friends:

I have some important news.  I haven’t posted in a long time, and after weeks of  reflection and contemplation, It’s time to make some changes.   After over 25 years of studying, research, thousands of client assessments, programs developed and literally hundreds of thousands of body fats measured, I’ve come to a conclusion:

Fitness just doesn’t work for some people!  Why?

I’ve seen diligent clients do more than  other clients around them.  They seem to be eating right and working out regularly and just be discouraged by their lack of results.  They force themselves to eat strict and rarely miss a workout while others eat haphazardly and miss exercise sessions with better results.  It just doesn’t seem fair!

I hate Exercise

  • “Why is this so hard for me?”

  • “I only eat healthy, nothing that really tastes good and I’m not losing like the cookie eater over there, WHY??”

  • “I hate exercise, but, I do it anyway because I have to.”

  • “The gym is full of self centered mirror-lovers. I hate the mirror.”

Regardless of diligence and discipline, regardless of how technologically advanced your workout routine or how clean and pure your eating is, there is one factor that influences success in fitness more than any other.  I’ve discovered and proven it in my years of experience and it’s time to share my discovery…

Mood

Simply stated it is MOOD.

Don’t discount this.

Let me explain.  There is specific physiology and psychology that govern regenerative processes in the body that directly correlates to feeling energetic, optimistic and finally happy.  This means that you can’t just like the idea of fitness, you have to embrace the process to the point of enjoying what it takes to be healthy and fit and finally, you have to accurately think of yourself as a fit person.

So if you are forcing yourself to get fit or think what you want is just unachievable or deep down,  you think fitness is  fleeting or temporary, then you’ll never achieve your goal of getting there, regardless of what type of exercise or nutrition plan you are following.

How many of us have been in better shape than they are now?  Most of us! Why is that? 

It is because of our mindset right now.  It is because of our mood and attitude.  I have observed very similar clients with similar goals get very different results because they approached fitness and life with a different mindset.  This has been shown time and time again in research.  Those who had the right psychology had a definitive advantage in beating a life threatening disease, surviving a disaster or even surviving combat.

So ho can we get this “right psychology” and thus develop our mood and mind-set and develop the right attitude?

I can confidently say I’m in better shape at 45 than I was at 20, 30 or 40.  I can confidently say I’m in better shape than when I was an active duty Marine Officer, 20 years after the fact.  Shouldn’t the aging process count against me?  Shouldn’t the economy, loss of family and friends to cancer and an uncertain future drive me down?

It is expected that it should by many today, but it should not.  Armed with these specific methods and nutrients  that constantly refresh my mood, my metabolism, my recovery from daily stresses and ultimately change my attitude and mindset for a successful and fit life, I’ve busted through several fitness plateaus, injuries and other invisible roadblocks to my success.

It is time for you to bust through your roadblocks as well.  It is time to be better and get an EDGE on life.

Meet me on April 5th, my birthday, to start your plateau busting springtime transformation.  I promise, this will be different than anything you’ve done before.  I’m not asking you to abandon your favorite gym or your current fitness program.  I’m asking you to get the most out of them.  I’m asking you to take this journey with me through a six week program that will make you better and keep making you better.  Be your own experiment and prove  that this works.  It did for me.  Will you join me?

I NEED Your Prayers and Support

This has become very personal for me.  My dad, Robert Kotterman, just got diagnosed with a melanoma skin cancer on his abdomen and has a consultation with an oncologist this week.  The mole is about a centimeter big.  Tina, my wife just had to go back yesterday to get an ultra sound on her breast after a mammogram showed a 2 inch cyst in her breast.  She is still mourning the recent death of her mother from cancer.  She has a family history of breast cancer.  Her uncle had it!

I need your help in this Cancer Fight!

I'm not special.  Statistics show that cancer has touched everyone's family.  I know if you are reading this, you know several people who have had it.  You know people who have died from it.  A lot of people think that exercise and eating right is just for vanity.  They think of fitness as a luxury for those who have more time, money and energy.  It's not.  Of course I'm going to say that, I'm biased.  Yes, I have a continual urge to help people get fit, but it is not just so they can feel more sexy,  its much more than that!

  • My father-in-law died of throat cancer before I had a chance to meet him.
  • My mother-in-law recently died of lung cancer.
  • My mother has had basil cell cancers removed.
  • I had an aggressive, rare form of melanoma that needed surgery.
  • I've found melanoma on my clients while doing body fat testing.
  • Clients have had several surgeries, lost body parts and even died as a result of cancer.
  • In our church, we have lost close friends, young children, teenagers and parents to this disease

I have personally worked with clients with cancers of the;

  • skin
  • breast
  • prostate
  • liver
  • lung
  • stomach
  • blood
  • brain
  • muscle
  • bone

Research shows that cancer deaths are 80% preventable!

We can prevent this horrible disease through healthy lifestyle change.  The easiest thing we can do to is to take antioxidants.  These are nutrients that fight free radicals, the things that cause cancer.  TriSystem Edge has a combination of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet.  It is a natural supplement that is a weapon against this evil disease.

What you can do to help…

  1. Please pray for my dad, Tina, your family and anyone else you know dealing with cancer.
  2. Help me to make this supplement.  We have about half the money we need to produce it.  Please, Find someone you know who will invest in this supplement.  It has a guaranteed 25% return on the money invested and we only need $10,500 more.  It is what we can do together to fight CANCER! at the year end, this could even be a tax advantage for some.

Jeff Kotterman Receives Official Title…

I am pleased to announce that I've been selected to be the Official Pageant Physique Consultant for the Miss California Intercontinental Pageants.  This includes consulting for the Junior T.E.E.N California and The Miss T.E.E.N California Pageants as well.  Miss California Intercontinental is the official state preliminary to the Miss United States Intercontinental Pageant. The coveted tiara that the winner of this pageant wears is the most expensive crown used in all of the events of this nature, valued as it is at 335,000 USD.  The pageants will be Presented by AJ Beauty, the pageants will be held the spring of 2013 in Southern California. 

Because of my strong convictions towards good health and a healthy physique, I am an advocate of conveying a balanced, healthy image in a community where beauty, high standards and the American obesity epidemic intersect.  There is still a lingering stigma among the ignorant  that pageantry promotes unhealthy, underweight  images of women destined for the fashion runway.  At the same time the standard of acceptable and healthy weight keeps rising as the average American gets heavier and heavier each year.

As a Licensed Master Sports Nutritionist and the current Director of the National Association of Sports Nutrition, I am proud to have the opportunity to consult these fine young women and to provide the latest nutrition and exercise strategies for optimum results.  It has become more difficult than ever to maintain a healthy body in this highly technological, fast paced society.  Mindful eating and purposeful exercise just seem to be more of an idea rather than a reality.  With 2013 fast approaching, the up and coming women of our modern society are not only exposing themselves to the traditional challenges of pageantry but, also the hyper criticism of being viewed as too thin or too fat or both by the scrutinizing public.

It is my job as the official pageant physique consultant for these pageants to ensure these women achieve their personal best and to validate  that they are as healthy and as happy as they can be.  I provide professional assessment, program development and follow up that includes specific nutrition and exercise advice.  My experience has spanned over 20 years with thousands of clients, many who have achieved different titles in all walks of life.  For more information about how I can help you present your best at your next pageant go to http://trisystem.info/contact/ and tell me more about you or just call 858-694-0317 and ask for Jeff.

If you'd like a reference, any of the women below will gladly speak on my behalf or just ask Liz Eddy or Robin Senne.

What to Do About Holiday Eating…

Battling those Holiday Pounds!

Studies show the average weight gain around this time of year among those who are weight conscious is five to ten pounds. Those who are not concerned about weight could gain a whole lot more.   So what’s the answer?  Avoid all the delicious, good food surrounding the various holidays this time of year.  Dramatically cut back on everything else.  If this was the answer, the holiday weight gain statistic would not exist.  Forgo the food connected with our holiday celebrations and you might as well skip the whole holiday season.  Since becoming a hermit is not the healthy answer for  weight and body composition maintenance, we must find another answer.

That solution, in a nut shell (pardon the pun) is variety and moderation.  Specifically, the number of meals you eat per day will definitely influence pending weight gain.  Even the most meticulous calorie counters realize that they need a specific amount of calories per day.  So they save up their calories for that one special meal.   Have you every skipped breakfast or only had a light snack to eat before Thanksgiving?  It seems to makes sense.  If your limit your calories to 1,500 a day, why not in one delicious, holiday splurge. The problem with this calorie math is  your body is only capable of processing food at a specific rate.  For example: if a man is dying of dehydration, it will not benefit him to connect a fire hose to his mouth.  The water just can get in that fast.  Therefore, to be in energy balance, over the time it takes to consume a meal and the time it takes to digest and absorb that meal, we should be burning close to the same amount of calories.  It is not the amount of calories we eat per day that matters but, the amount of calories and nutrients we consume per meal.

So how do we apply this to the holiday season.  Don’t think your doing well by sleeping late, skipping meals, waiting for that one big meal.  Don’t set your body up for laying in the couch, watching television while it attempts to process this breakfast-lunch-and-dinner-in-one.  You’ve just lowered your daily calorie expenditure, increasing the chance that your body will store most of what your eating as fat.

Skipping meals and then exercising very hard, right before the big meal increases calories burned but, if you haven’t eaten very much since the night before, you could actually slow your metabolism, burning muscle.  Exercise helps curb the appetite in some people but, actually increases it in most because of the temporary calorie deficit.

The right way:  Your body likes routine.  If you normally get up at a certain time, get up at that time.  Try and eat as soon as you wake and eat breakfast, snacks and lunch like you normally would.  If exercise is part of your routine, then keep it there.  If it is not, this is not the day to start.  Eating meals at the time you normally eat them will actually raise metabolism (compared to skipping) and give you nutrients and calories when your body needs them.  This will reduce cravings and hunger before your holiday meal, especially if you have a snack or meal right before you get together.  Don’t deny yourself the traditional holiday foods.  Fighting to avoid them usually ends up in one or two melt downs that are worse than if you served yourself with various samples.  The key is portion control and variety.  A plate that has a little of everything is better than a plate that only has the biggest baked potato.  Try and put a little of everything on your plate, even if you don’t particularly care for something.  The more you try new and different foods, the more likely you are eating a balanced meal.  Don’t use the biggest plate, either.  Choose to fill a smaller plate or, when given a larger one, fill your plate out to the sides. Try not to stack food high.  Keep it all the same level.  If there is a boarder or pattern in the china, attempt to serve yourself within the lines.  Be sure to get some protein, carbohydrate, vegetable and a little fat.  Drink between eight and sixteen ounces of fluid with your meal, water being the first choice.

With a snack before, a full day of eating, routine exercise and a well balanced plate, we should all survive the holidays with little weight gain and a good taste of everything.  Having a little of everything eases the pressure of trying to decide what to eat, satisfies your taste buds and balances your meal.  Have fun with family and friends this holiday season but, not at the expense of  growing out of those jeans around New Years resolution time.  Good luck and God Bless!!

Letter to a Smoker :(

Mary, I send this to you out of brotherly love!

My mother-in-law was just diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She has lived with us for close to fifteen years and now, she is on hospice in our home.  She has lost 25 pounds in recent months and can't stand on her own anymore.  She is in a lot of pain, has no appetite and struggles with going to the bathroom.
 
 
I'm begging you, from the bottom of my heart that you would do everything you could to prevent this from happening to you.
 
She is angry!  She is mad that this happened to her.  She has been smoking for more than 50 years.  When she started, no one knew what it lead to.  Now we know.  I'm experiencing it first hand, watching my wife's mother die a painful, miserable death.  She is starting to cough more.  She feels so weak.  I don't want anyone to experience this, especially those I love.  What can I do to prevent this from happening to you?
 
Well, I can plead with you to stop smoking.  Cold turkey is best but, will you at least cut down? 
 
We can start exercising again to help heal your lungs and push the tar and nicotine out. You could even do it on your own.  I can help you, and hold you accountable.
 
Take my new anti-oxidant.  Research shows that this combination of herbs is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants on the planet.  I can drop some by or mail it to you for free.  This is that important to me.
 
Eat your fruits and veggies.  Veggies, veggies, veggies. 
 
 
Mary:  too many people depend on you.  Too many people love you and need you in there lives.  Please take the "loaded gun" out of your mouth and let me help you.  I want to save you from this inevitably painful death.
 
With HIS love,
 
Jeff <><
