Dr. Karlfeldt shares with us what you need to do to let go of emotions after performing. Plus are the vapors from e-cigarettes harmful to be around?
I am an actress and just had a baby. I still have an extra 20 pounds or so in baby weight. What can I do to get rid of it?
It is important to clean up your diet getting rid of those excess carbs, sugars, and bad fats. Most people think they need to eat less to lose weight. The fact is that you need to eat more protein to support lean muscles and a healthy fat loss. To find out how much protein, multiply your weight by 0.72 and that is how many grams of protein you need to eat. That is about 110 grams for someone weighing 150 lbs. Focusing on a paleo diet can be helpful when trying to figure out what to eat. To lose fat, high intensity interval training is the best way, you should be opting for 10-20 second intervals for eight reps with one minute rest with an ideal length of time for a HIIT workout session is 25 minutes for anywhere between two-four times a week. Drink a gallon of water daily to flush out the fat cells. Nutritional supplements that can be helpful include the amino acid l-carnitine, green tea, green coffee bean, CLA, and glucomannan.
I get very emotionally tied to a lot of the scenes I do and I have a hard time releasing those emotions when I go home. What can I do? I feel kind of psycho!
Emotions go with blood sugar. Make sure you eat some protein every 2-3 hours to balance your blood sugar. The herb St. John’s wort, B-complex and litium orotate can help to stabilize your mood. Also, the technique Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can be very helpful in releasing the energy of the emotions experienced on the set. EFT is a tapping technique that helps to balance your electrical circuitry and meridians in relationship to an event or emotion. It is very user friendly and can be used anytime and anywhere.
Several times, on the set, people have had to vape for a scene. Is it dangerous at all for me to be around it?
Because there is nothing burning while vaping there is the conception that there is no secondhand smoke. A small study published in the International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health in December found that vaping worsened indoor air quality, specifically by increasing the concentration of nicotine, particulate matter, PAHs, and aluminium — compounds that have been linked to lung and cardiovascular disease and cancer among other health effects. There is still much to discover about the potential health hazards of vaping. It took decades before tobacco smoking was considered harmful to your health. My thought is to play it safe and avoid secondhand vaping whenever possible.
Is it safe for me to carry my cell phone in my bra when I’m filming?
The World Health Organization has classified mobile phones, and any wireless devices that use microwaves to communicate, as a group 2B risk − which means that they are linked to cancer in humans. Many feel that research already points towards mobile phones as definite cancer causers. It has been clearly established that the incidence of cancer is in the direct proximity of the location of the cell phone. For example, testicular cancer in men occurring more frequently in the testes closest to where cell phones are carried or in women in the breast where the cell phone is carried. Cell phones emit pulsed microwave radiation. The younger the breast the greater fluid and fat in the breast which equals greater microwave absorption and risk for cancer.
