BASIC TRAINING.

Byline: Kathy Kaehler

The Twist Lunge is just what it sounds like, a lunge with a twist. This is a great exercise to work the legs, butt and abs.

1. Hold a 3-to 5-pound weight, or heavier if you are in a strength-training program, in each hand. Stand with feet hip-width apart with the arms extended in front, shoulder height.

2. Lunge back with the left leg so that the right thigh is parallel to the floor and the knee is aligned over the right ankle. Tighten your abs and twist the torso by rotating the arms to the right and hold for a second. Rotate back to the center and repeat the twist to the left. Hold for a second and rotate back to the center as you step your left foot back into a standing position. Repeat on the other side. Alternate legs for six to eight lunges.

KATHY'S 5 WAYS TO CURB CRAVINGS

1. Wait them out. When the irresistible urge strikes, resist momentarily. Take a walk, phone a friend or meditate.

2. Shut down your kitchen. Most cravings happen after dinner before you go to bed. Clean up the kitchen and turn out the lights. This may help you from going back for snacks.

3. Brush your teeth. You'll be less likely to eat more of your favorite snack if it's going to taste like spearmint.

4. Eat every three to four hours. If you are running errands and forgot to eat, you will get overly hungry and most likely grab a high-calorie snack. Plan your day, pay attention to the time, preplan your snacks and meals for the whole day.

5. Eat whole food. Focus on eating more whole foods, such as whole grains, veggies and fruit. An apple instead of the juice, a baked potato instead of the fries. Less-processed foods contain less sugar and less fat. They also have more fiber, which fills you up so your cravings go away.
