?did you make a new years resolution to get healthier this year? kolo 8 news nows chris buckley talked with a local fitness expert about how to keep your goals in sight. "exercise is about 20 percent and food and nutrition and stress levels is about 80%" camie cragg fitness offers classes and training programs for all fitness and intensity levels... and here they take the same individualized approach to nutrition. "every person is a different person with food so a lot of the time there is stable macros and micros caloric intake but really waht it comes down to is that persons digestive system and that persons allergies so lately what i've been doing is asking people about their blood type." she says is all about finding a balance "so your'e looking for just the right amount of sugars, the fibers, the proten, all the essential minerals and theres a balance between the protens and the carbs and essentail fats and that calls for variets, fruts, vegetables, some lean meats." and a good place to start... is a diet of 40 percent carbs, 40 percent proten and 2o percent essential fats. if that's not working... you can adjust those ratios... but try not to cut out entire groups
4:43 am
"i love sugar so much, you tell someone to get rid of all sugar and its like telling a kid not to pick up that toy, instead, place those sugars in your carbs so you can have a little bit instead of completely cutting them out at that point you're just going to crave, crave crave and overindulge and then go through that guilt." if you do get off track... she says its important to get back on as quickly as possible. "lets say i had a doughnut for my 1 pm meal and my next meal is at four, the average person says i've already had that doughnut and i'm just going to screw up the rest of the night, don't do that, jump back and have some chicken and quinoa so you can lose that guilt off all night rather than one serving." and finding that balance in the rest of your life... can make food choices that much easier. "when you're looking to restart and refresh and become the best version of yourself, do your best to look at the important pillars of your life your workplace, relationships, your physical activity whatever it is, increase those and allow stress levels to become al little lower as well which means your relationship in most cases becomes better with food." that was chris buckley reporting now to a new study suggesting smoking a hookah, or water pipe, may not be a safe alternative to cigarettes. andrew spencer explains why. as cigarette smoking
4:44 am
popularity of hookahs is on the rise. however, a new analysis puts the notion of hookah as safer than cigarettes in doubt. the university of pittsburgh school of medicine found that smoking hookah exposes the user to 125-times the smoke... 25-times the tar... two-and-a-half times the nicotine... and 10-times the carbon monoxide... compared to a cigarette. the researchers looked at the results from 17- previous studies to come to the conclusion. here's why this is important... the c-d-c says hookah smoking is slightly more common among high school students than cigarette smoking. the pittsburgh researchers admit its difficult to compare the two forms of smoking, since people generally smoke multiple cigarettes in a day... and hookah smokers may only use it a few times per day. ultimately, they believe the practice needs to be examined more closely
