You are a hardworking person who gets up early, works a full day, exercises, and takes care of the kids at night. Life sure is easy, right? Riiiight… Something is already telling me you could use some tips to manage cravings during your weakest hours.
OK, maybe your story is a little different, but most likely you are living a busy life, full of stress, anxiety, and deadlines. While you sit at your desk or drive your car, your daydreams shift to thoughts of salty chips or a smooth, sweet chocolate bar. You most likely are not thinking about healthy foods.

It’s crucial to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle during all stages of life – but as we grow older, our needs change drastically. There is now substantial evidence that regular exercise has many health benefits for elders – and more people are turning towards taking up an active lifestyle with senior exercise classes rather than staying inactive.
In this article, you’ll learn the benefits of exercising when old, why it’s so great for senior citizens and some exercises that might not be safe for seniors, along with which senior exercise classes you should choose.
Exercise can be defined as any movement that requires your body to work and burn calories. There are different types of physical activity, such as running, walking, swimming, and dancing, to name a few. Although many people know that exercise is good for them, they may not be aware of all the benefits it can bring to their lives, both physically and mentally. In fact, anyone can benefit from incorporating more physical activity into their life, regardless of age, sex, or physical ability. If you need more convincing to stay active, here are seven ways physical activity benefits your health, and can lead to a healthier and happier life.
Let me preface this post by saying: “I eat these foods.” Yes, it is true, I do eat about 50% of the foods listed. Especially peanuts, Smartfood, and some of the carbohydrate foods listed at the bottom. Despite calling them all out as unhealthy foods, they aren’t all technically that bad for you, it’s just good to examine the nutritional details and figure out where we can make the best decisions.
If you take this list literally, it will just aggravate you, so take it with a grain of salt… or maybe a grain of whole wheat.
There are many terms that are misleading in the food advertising industry today. Think of how many times you see healthy phrases plastered all over food containers. Don’t allow yourself to be swayed by these words of trickery, none of these catchphrases mean ‘healthy food’ inherently – you have to read the labels.
Let’s take a look at some of the most common attempts to convince consumers a food is healthy when perhaps it’s really not.
Being healthy is not always easy to achieve. You have to work hard to stay fit and healthy. Especially during this global coronavirus pandemic, it has become a tough challenge to maintain a healthy lifestyle. As we stay home, isolated day after day sometimes unhealthy lifestyle habits start to set in. We can possibly start to reverse those habits by introducing regular exercise.
Let’s take a look at how the addition of exercise into your routine, can help reverse those unhealthy habits.
Since the late 1990’s Dr. John Berardi has published 8 scientific abstracts; 15 scientific papers and textbook chapters; presented at nearly 50 scientific, exercise, and nutrition-related conferences; and published countless articles online.
His first articles at Testosterone Magazine so many years ago provided me with the basis for everything I knew about nutrition in my early years as a personal trainer. Now I will turn some of that knowledge over to you in the form of Nutrition Tips written by Dr. Berardi himself.
Today’s Topic – How Much Water You Should Drink
Water is important for maintaining proper health.
I have always advocated drinking at least a gallon of water a day, but then some media outlets over-hype the fact that drinking too much water can make you sick, so people sometimes dismiss the importance of drinking water. So whatever you believe, the all-important question must still be answered, how much water should you drink?
I think it all had to do with some radio contest to see who could drink the most water in the shortest amount of time. The fact is that you would have to drink many gallons of water in a short time frame to make yourself sick.
Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should basically drink as much water as possible each day.
Most vacations mean people take a break from their everyday life. Vacations can be great for health as well, by eliminating the daily stress from working 8-10 hrs, commuting, and having stressful responsibilities. They leave their routines at home and go away to have some fun. It’s great to get away and not think about work, but it may not be so great if you’re trying to stick with some daily habits. You’ll want to attempt to workout on vacation to keep your muscles limber and your blood flowing.
One of the most popular routines is a full-body workout. It can be difficult to keep up with this routine while you’re away for various reasons such as lack of equipment and training facilities. No matter the reason why you think you can’t get it done, here are a few tips to help see that you do.

To regain and take control of your body and your overall health, you have to put in the legwork. Maintaining a healthy and strong body all year round requires dedication to a few lifestyle fundamentals.
you have to prepare for results – mentally and by keeping your body healthy
you have to follow a healthy, maintainable diet and nutrition plan
you have to follow a proven workout routine customized for your personal needs
If you do not have a mix of all of these elements, then you will struggle to get your body looking and feeling how you want it to. When it comes to getting in shape, there is no overnight fix. You need to put in the work, and you need to maintain the work to get visible results that last.
Hundreds of weight loss programs will promise quick results, but the truth remains, there is no shortcut to long-term weight loss results. The foundation of losing weight remains a healthy lifestyle which includes a calorie-controlled diet with more physical activity. If you want long-term successful weight loss results, you need to make several permanent changes in your lifestyle and health habits.
As much as they say it will be easy, the fact remains you will have to get uncomfortable and put in the effort required to get results. How fast it works depends on a number of things but primarily the amount of effort you are putting in. So stick around to learn several strategies that will help you shed some weight.

Look after your BACK! Because once that goes you are FINISHED!
It really is that simple.
The spine and the muscles surrounding it are the backbones to our physical existence ‘Pun intended’.
However, it is a part of our body that is prone to injury. Now, prevention isn’t a difficult thing to do. But one thing I am certain of is that trying to cure the issue of back pain is an entirely different matter (Yes… not always easy).
All of those things are highly important when it comes to protecting your back. Heck, embracing good posture isn’t even something you need to worry about in the gym only. In fact, that has a lot more to do with your activities outside of the weight room.
How you sit at your desk in the office.
In your bed and how you sleep (sleeping on the floor is still one of the best things you can do).
How you position your body when using a computer at home, which of course, is where most of us spend most of our time in today’s world on Facebook and the like.
These lifestyle habits are highly important in regard to back injury prevention. Now let’s see how you can change your lifestyle to proactively protect yourself from back injuries.
Are you one of those people who always have “join the gym” on their new year’s resolution list? If yes, then the good news is that it is actually going to work this year. In this blog, I am going to explain how you can manage to go to the gym with the help of marijuana.
The first and the most important thing that you need to know about this is that using marijuana for any purpose is all about finding the right strain. Green Relief has different strains that you can use after the gym to ensure that you go to the gym again the next day. So, just consult them about your problem, and you’ll get the strain that will work for you.
According to studies, people spend 7.6% of their time outside. That’s it. Less than 8% of our time is spent in nature. A lot of people are stuck indoors, chained to their screens, and uninterested in stepping outside to breathe in some fresh air. Rarely does outdoor exercise occur to most people as an option to improve their lifestyle.
While these statistics sound defeating, it can actually be a great call to action, especially for athletes and people looking to get strong and fit. Exercising outdoors can completely transform not only your workout routine but your mental and physical health, and it’s entirely possible to introduce outdoor activities into any program.
Still not convinced you need to go outside? Let us explain why it’s so beneficial and what kind of activities you can do.
