The Benefits of Regular Exercise


The Benefits of Regular Exercise


Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing to exercise? Check out these seven ways exercise can improve your life.


No. 1: Exercise controls weight


Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.


No. 2: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases


Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.


No. 3: Exercise improves mood


Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.


No. 4: Exercise boosts energy


Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.

No. 5: Exercise promotes better sleep


Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don’t exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.


No. 6: Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life


Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there’s more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise.


No. 7: Exercise can be fun


Exercise and physical activity can be a fun way to spend some time. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a soccer team. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. If you get bored, try something new.


The bottom line on exercise


Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more. Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you haven’t exercised for a long time, have chronic health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes or arthritis, or you have any concerns.

Why Do You Have Cellulite?

jim-coover-quoteWhy Do You Have Cellulite? More important…….how can you get rid of it????

In case you didn’t know, there are two types of fat:

Fat Type #1: Visceral fat

Fat Type #2: subcutaneous fat.

Visceral fat is the fat that gathers around your mid-section
and surrounds your organs.

This is the most dangerous fat. It’s linked to heart disease,
diabetes, stroke, and metabolic syndrome.

One of the easiest ways to stop its accumulation is to make sure you
avoid trans-fats like the plague, and clean up your diet by eating
more REAL food – instead of processed foods.

But there is a completely different fat called subcutaneous
fat, which is found just UNDER your first 3 layers skin.

Only the very top layer is subject to cellulite.

What are probable causes for cellulite?

–    Stress hormones like cortisol
–    Metabolic changes (dieting, starving then bingeing)
–    Poor circulation
–    Lymphatic system not draining well
–    Eating too much processed salt
–    Breakdown of collagen in the skin

The result?

Swollen excess fat cells protruding to the surface of the skin
that appear like ugly looking cottage cheese.

…And to make things worse, any decrease in blood flow, any
type of dehydration or local inflammation will make you retain
more water, which will make it look even worse.

Now, if you’re thinking that short cuts and quick fixes, like
liposuction are the answer – think again.

The American Academy of Dermatology claims:

“Liposuction will WORSEN the appearance of cellulite.
creating more depression in the skin.”

Other than eating cleaner and avoiding processed foods,
what else can you personally do?

What is the Secret to Being Healthy and Fit????

What is the Secret to Being Healthy and Fit????

This is a loaded question. I think you will be surprised by the answer. Is it the gym? Is it the kitchen?  The answer is no and no.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe truly, correct answer is YOUR MIND!!!

Your mind and thoughts can be an asset or an enemy within you.

It seems we are programmed to question our own capabilities and SELF-DOUBT RULES!!

FEAR seems to be a dominating emotion when it comes to diet and exercise. When I say diet, I mean what you are eating each day. Are you feeding your physical body or do you eat to feed your emotional body? This is very a common practice to stressed out people.

We are on a journey. We all start from scratch. We are all born with advantages and diadvantages. Some build lean muscle and burn fat with ease. Others have to work much harder.

You may be starting your fitness journey now at a less than desireable weight, or you might be thin but weak and desire to be stronger and healthier. Make health your goal and the weight loss will come. Most healthy people have been on  the path toward better health for a long time. It doesn’t happen overnight and it starts in your mind!!!

STOP bashing yourself and your poor innocent body. Remember your body didn’t get here on its own. Commit yourself to the desire to see progress and you WILL become a success. Dont sweat it if you missed a workout or ate a few cookies. Tell yourself over and over I AM STRONG!!! I will have a healthy fit body. Encourage yourself and your good habits. Embrace your baby steps toward better health.

There will always be times when you question if it is all worth it. Do you really want to feel miserable for that moment of pleasure you will get from eating that bag of chips. Can you justify that? It is your responsibility to change your thoughts and make wise choices, noone can do it for you.

Bad days will pass and we don’t have to eat to feed our emotions. It will only bring you more self doubt and self anger. Instead concentrate on your new found energy and the fact that your clothes fit you better. Encourage the flow of continuous good habits by embracing even the small victories.

This is part 1 of 2.

If you need help on your journey. I am here for you.

How Important Is It To Eat Your Vegetables?

How Important Is It To Eat Your Vegetables?

Health Benefitsgrocery bags filled with fruits and vegetables

  • Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for heart disease, including heart attack and stroke.
  • Eating a diet rich in some vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may protect against certain types of cancers.
  • Diets rich in foods containing fiber, such as some vegetables and fruits, may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
  • Eating vegetables and fruits rich in potassium as part of an overall healthy diet may lower blood pressure, and may also reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and help to decrease bone loss.
  • Eating foods such as vegetables that are lower in calories per cup instead of some other higher-calorie food may be useful in helping to lower calorie intake.
  • Nutrientsalmonds, lentils, and eggs

    • Most vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories. None have cholesterol. (Sauces or seasonings may add fat, calories, or cholesterol.)
    • Vegetables are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C.
    • Diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure. Vegetable sources of potassium include sweet potatoes, white potatoes, white beans, tomato products (paste, sauce, and juice), beet greens, soybeans, lima beans, spinach, lentils, and kidney beans.
    • Dietary fiber from vegetables, as part of an overall healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease. Fiber is important for proper bowel function. It helps reduce constipation and diverticulosis. Fiber-containing foods such as vegetables help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.
    • Folate (folic acid) helps the body form red blood cells. Women of childbearing age who may become pregnant should consume adequate folate from foods, and in addition 400 mcg of synthetic folic acid from fortified foods or supplements. This reduces the risk of neural tube defects, spina bifida, and anencephaly during fetal development.
    • Vitamin A keeps eyes and skin healthy and helps to protect against infections.
    • Vitamin C helps heal cuts and wounds and keeps teeth and gums healthy. Vitamin C aids in iron absorption.

Ten Ways To Tame Belly Bloat

chocolate isaleanTen Ways to Tame Belly Bloat

The “pooch”, belly bloat, “poof”, and all of the other ways you describe a bloated belly can be easily undone. There are so many reasons that the lower and upper abdomen can swell, and yet there are also a lot of immediate remedies. For instance, belly bloat could be water retention due to a diet too high in sodium. It could be caused by gas in the digestive tract. It could be because of constipation. Many women experience major bloating on a monthly basis thanks to the menstrual cycle. So, there is a huge number of reasons that your belly may be sticking out a bit, and it could even be a combination of issues.

It would be great if you could know precisely why your belly has a bloated look or feel, since that could steer you towards the perfect solution. However, the ten tactics below are good “general” answers:

Ten Ways To Tame Belly Bloat

  1. Exercise, exercise, exercise – Movement is one of the best ways of addressing belly bloat because it helps the body to cut stored water, fights constipation, strengthens the abdominal shield (the famous “six pack” muscles), and improve circulation. Just twenty minutes each day can work wonders.


2.Eliminate soda – Soda is a horrible “food”. It is packed with sugar and chemicals and is just to be avoided in general. If the lack of nutrients and harmful side effects are not enough of an incentive to cut it from your diet, perhaps the fact that the carbonation leads substantial belly bloating will be. This is true of all “bubbly” beverages that use carbonation, so even that seltzer could be a culprit behind your bloat.


3.Tackle fluid retention with potassium-laden foods – If your pants feel a bit too snug in the morning, don’t skip breakfast. Instead, down a banana, some mango, half of a cantaloupe, a handful of raw almonds, some spinach, a sliced tomato, or even a few stems of asparagus. Each of these foods is high in potassium and are going to help you shed excess or retained water. Click her to Try this Perfect Breakfast to get you going in the morning.

4.Just skip sugar – We struggle with our sweet tooth, and use substitutes to give us that answer to a craving. However, many people cannot digest these artificial sweeteners and this leads to gas and major digestive upset. If you crave a sugary sweet – have the cheat and eat real sugar instead – just keep it in moderation.


5. Zip it – We all have habits that actually introduce a lot of air into our bodies – we might chew gum, smoke, drink through straws, or speak a lot during meals – and each of these activities can lead to bloating and gas. Keeping your mouth closed and being aware of these bloating behaviors may be your ideal solution.


6. Not after 3 PM – Carbohydrates are a good source of fiber or energy, but they can also make you retain water and wake up feeling very bloated. Bread and pasta are not the only sources of carbs. If you find that you wake up feeling sluggish and swollen after a delicious spaghetti dinner it is likely that you should stop eating carbs after 3 PM.


7.Menstrual solutions – Any woman who usually experiences belly bloat during menstruation should be sure to get adequate magnesium and calcium, just before and during that time of the month as it tends to limit the amount of bloating experienced.


8. Probiotic – In line with the previous remedy is the use of “good bacteria” known as probiotic. Natural yogurt is a good one for this and it is a way of reducing bloat, constipation, and menstrual symptoms. You can also take supplements with probiotics to help improve digestion and cut back any bloating.


9.Self-massage – Your belly is out more than you want…what do you do? If you are like many, you press down on it. This is actually something that can help with bloating. Just massage your belly in a clockwise direction from the right hip and you will feel and see relief of symptoms.


10.Fresh breath and flat tummy – Parsley is a food long used to freshen breath after meals, but it is also a major diuretic. Munch a handful after each meal and you’ll enjoy natural relief of water retention. Try ENZYMES after meals.

Easy, simple, and effective – these are ten ways to tame any sort of belly bloating symptoms right away!


New Fat Blasting Core Workout


New Fat Blasting Core Workout Is Here:


Core exercises are an important part of a well-rounded fitness program. Aside from occasional sit-ups and push-ups, however, core exercises are often neglected. Still, it pays to get your core muscles — the muscles around your trunk and pelvis — in better shape. Read on to find out why.


Core exercises improve your balance and stability


Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles.


Core exercises don’t require specialized equipment or a gym membership


Any exercise that involves the use of your abdominal and back muscles in coordinated fashion counts as a core exercise. A bridge is a classic core exercise. Lie on your back with your knees bent. Keep your back in a neutral position, not arched and not pressed into the floor. Avoid tilting your hips. Tighten your abdominal muscles. Raise your hips off the floor until your hips are aligned with your knees and shoulders. Hold the position for as long as you can without breaking your form.
