How Computers Keep You Fat!





Ask Glen!




Q. Glen, I sit in front of a PC all day, I get very tired and stiff any suggestions?


A. One of the best ways to increase your performance at work and in the gym is to take a break from the computer. Sometimes we get so caught up with work that it's hard to remember to get up and stretch or go for a walk, but doing so will help minimize stress, improve your concentration and encourage you to burn a few calories in the process. Performing the same actions again and again without rest can lead to Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, tenosynovitis and thoracic outlet syndrome. Make it a point to get up and walk away from the computer every half hour, and your body, mind and eyes will thank you.


Glen's Bottom Line: Get up and Get moving!


Any personal health questions or problems mental or physical or before starting any diet or exercise program. Please consult your physician !

There are non surgical treatments for thoracic outlet syndrome that work very well. Here is a presentation I did on that very subject at the 12th Annual World Congress on Anti-aging Medicine, Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas Nevada, December 4, 2004
