Eat For Energy Try These Nutrition Tips

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Everyone would like to make more better choices in what we eat and drink, but all too often, we are either too busy we don’t know how to start or we believe it will be harder than it is. Here are some ideas for people like you who are looking to improve their nutritional health.

healthy eatingTry to make start eating vegetarian for some of your meals. This will help you build your meal around your vegetables and fruits. It is a great way to eat healthy. You may find that you enjoy the vegetarian style of eating and may plan to continue to do so with more meals. This will provide you with a reason to try different preparation options for vegetables. You may not realize how good eggplant really is when it is cooked in, say a lasagna. I mean really good.

Eating a healthy diet that supports exercise levels and gives the body the required materials to rebuild itself, is an important component to physical fitness. Make sure to add plenty of protein to your diet to allow for muscle growth. Providing enough carbohydrates will give the body fuel for the day. Providing too many carbs will just get stored as fat. The right diet makes a huge difference.

Ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, is crucial to keep in your diet. It is used for the maintenance of multiple body systems, most importantly the repair pathways and as an antioxidant. It is found in many popular fruits and vegetables, but it is also sometimes added to foods. Try to get it naturally but I also take a vitamin c supplement.

If time is an issue on a daily basis and has inhibited you from creating healthy meals then you may find it is easier to take one day a week, to cook and prepare enough meals for the following week that can be stored in the freezer. Then each night, you only need to take one out and heat it up to have a healthy, homemade meal.

Go with protein shakes for 2 meals if you are trying to lose weight and 1 if you just want to maintain your weight. These meal replacements are full of nutrition and the protein you need in a very easy and convenient form.

PROTEINAs you age, it is can become more difficult to digest food and get the nutrients that your body needs for optimum health, energy and longevity. In many cases, the closer your food is to being in its original form, the easier it is for you do digest it and get the nutrients from it that you need. A good Herbalife product to add for better absorption is the Formula 3 and for protein absorption is Aminogen

One of the best ways to cut calories is to stop drinking beverages that contain calories from sugar. Most fruit juices, sports drinks, soda and coffees contribute little if anything to our dietary needs while increasing our caloric intake dramatically. Even diet soda may have the opposite effect.

If you are trying to increase your nutrition, eat foods that are natural. Processed foods can be very bad for you. You should focus your eating on fresh produce and lean meat. If you struggle with buying the processed foods in a grocery store, try to staying away from the aisles that are the most tempting for you.

Nutrition, as you have seen, does not necessarily have to be a set of complicated regimes or instructions. Very often it can mean that you really just need to pay attention to what you are eating and take small but useful steps that guide you gradually toward better nutritional health. You will notice, if you apply these tips consistently, that your health will reflect the better nutritional choices you are making.

Master Your Metabolism

Metabolism Booster

When it comes to losing weight and the ability to keep it off, your metabolism and how it is working is the main factor. Your metabolism is your body’s the process of converting calories into energy. If you have a slow metabolism, that means you are burning off less calories and fat. There are some simple tricks to speeding up your metabolism.

1) Eat smaller meals more often One reason a metabolism may slow down is that your are not eating enough. Some people eat very little through out the day but once they get home from work they are like eating machines. This is a very bad time to eat because it is so close to bed time. If you eat and then soon go to sleep your body is naturally slowing down because this is your body’s time to rest so you will burn less calories and the longer the food stays in there the more your body will end up absorbing and by eating little throughout the day your body will conserve energy thinking its not getting enough food and it is conserved as fat. Eating more often but smaller portions keeps your metabolism working through out the day and you are less likely to gorge when you get home.

2) Drink plenty of water Water is vital to the proper functioning of your body, because most of your body is made up of water if you are not drinking enough water your body will also think it needs to conserve water and that can lead to up to 5lbs of water weight alone.

3) Exercise and weight training Exercise will help you to burn fat, especially cardio style work outs but you should also incorporate weights into your fitness plan. Muscle burns more fat. By building muscle you will automatically burn more fat no matter what you are doing.

4) Avoid sugary foods When you eat excessive amounts of sugar, your body tends to store more fat. Your blood sugar levels spike and dip erratically and if you don’t control this bad habit, "insulin resistance" can result – which means your body will have a harder time processing sugar and more of it will get stored as fat. As you probably know high sugar foods also have more calories, so you may be sabotaging any weight loss efforts you have made from the start. The more sugar and carbohydrates you eat the more of these types of foods you crave. Break the habit by replacing sugary treats and drinks with lower calorie high protein foods.

5) Green tea Green tea has long been believed to be a fat burning metabolism booster. It is also used as a very popular energy tea. It does contain caffeine but less than a third of the caffeine in coffee. On the plus side green tea is also loaded with natural antioxidants to help fight free radicals which may help to boost your immune system and fight against premature aging.

Weight Loss and Fitness

Monday, November 17th, 2014

 

Weight loss and fitness begins with better health and nutrition and a conscious decision to make better choices about the foods you eat, how much you eat and when. As well as beginning an exercise routine that is do-able with your lifestyle and schedule. If you plan too big an exercise routine that takes up too much time or is difficult to follow you probably won’t do it.

Healthy Choices

You may not always choose healthy foods when snacking    or eating your meals, but for those times that you do you    will never regret it. Not like a big piece of chocolate cake    or a giant bowl of pasta. Catch yourself before you get too    hungry and you will make better food choices.

Waiting until you are "starving" is a bad idea because at that point you may over indulge and generally it will be on quick and easy foods that are high in calories, fats and carbohydrates. You will have more control over what you eat if you plan ahead. For more on weight loss, health and nutrition visit

Shopping

This is the best place to start if you are trying to lose weight or improve your nutrition and health. Do not choose foods that are high in fats, carbs and calories at the store and you won’t have to choose when its hardest to do so, at home. If you make good choices in the grocery store the choices at home will be that much better for you.

Green tea has antioxidants, specifically a high content of flavonoids. According to a Harvard article the antioxidant bioflavonoids in green and black tea may have many health benefits.

“Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder.”

Antioxidants are also believed to help prevent early signs of aging. WebMd says  green tea can help with the heart, blood pressure, and even the brain.

Herbalife Antioxidants

Herbalife offers several products that contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are important to a healthy immune system, and have shown in studies  to help prevent premature aging. Antioxidants support the body’s natural defense against oxidative stress.

Oxidative damage has been implicated in the cause of many diseases, such as cancer and heart disease. It has also been shown to have a major impact on the way your body ages.

One example you can think of is an apple. Once you slice an apple the oxidative process begins immediately and you start to see that apple slice turn brown fairly quickly. The cells begin to die or become damaged. In the case of our bodies, many or even most of our cells regenerate but over time we end up with too many damaged cells called free radicals.

The reason for this is that one free radical will try to steal electrons from another healthy cell to stabilize itself and set off a chain reaction of damage to other healthy cells. Antioxidants help to replace the missing electrons and help to balance these cells.

There are many things including genetics, your environment and diet that will affect your overall health and well-being but  if adding antioxidants to your diet may help your body help itself to operate at your optimum level. Why wouldn’t you?
