How Social Media Can Help You Eat Healthily

By Stacey Thompson

Just about everyone who has tried to make radically healthier changes to their daily food consumption have realized that this is easier to accomplish with some kind of support system aside from your own will to succeed. It is a great help for people to cheer you on, support you, give you advice, or even criticize you on your way to better eating and overall health. Sometimes, you just can’t trust yourself as you are prone to self-rationalization (you are the best person to convince yourself to do anything), and an external perspective can be very useful.

We live in an age that a community can be in touch with one another, regardless of where they are physically. Health and fitness communities span countries, or even continents; they can share recipes, compare notes, and keep tabs on each other’s progress. Despite the widespread contagion of contaminated food, questionable chemical and genetic concoctions supposedly for human consumption, and strains of resistant bacteria, there has never been a better time in human history to sculpt the healthiest human beings ever to walk the planet.

The Correct Body Building Training Techniques To Avoid Injury

Body building training is indeed very important for your health since it helps to ensure that all your body organs function properly. However, injuries may occur in the training process. One of the sure ways of avoiding injuries is by following the instructions provided by your instructor to the letter. Here are some additional injury prevention steps that you can use to achieve the full benefits from your work out.

Tip 1: This entails purchasing top quality equipment which will be required. You may choose to join a gym facility instead of buying your own personal equipment.

Tip 2: Cramps are usually experienced by people who have a meal at least 30 minutes before the work out. Of course, you should not exercise on an empty stomach but you need to eat at a recommended time. It is wise to consume food which can supply the required energy at least 40 minutes before your training session in order to give your body enough time to digest the food. Ensure that your body has enough fluids by taking enough water before and after the exercise.

Tip 3: Warm Up- This helps to prepare the body for the body building activity. In addition, it helps to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood stream and this in turn helps in preventing muscle soreness. An example of a good warm up can (Read More....)

Between Sandy and the Snow...

If you have checked the news recently, no doubt you have noticed it is not the best time to be living in New York or other parts of the East Coast.

Back in October, just before the presidential election, residents of New York and Long Island were graced with the presence of Superstorm Sandy, a monster of a hurricane that dealt utter destruction and flooding to low-lying coastal areas.

Just as residents began to recover from Sandy, along came a blizzard that dealt anywhere from a foot of snow in the Manhattan area to three feet of snow along Long Island and up towards Boston.

According to The New York Times, $82 billion in damage was spread among three states alone (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut), and Congress was slow to approve a $60 billion emergency-aid package. It will take plenty of time for this money (Read More....)

The Shortfalls Of Old Age

Authored By Dave Webb

One of the big chips in the progress of the Human Species is medicine. With successful medicine comes an increase in the aged population of the planet. Everyone of these aged individuals takes up space. A lot of them have no useful productive use anymore. A lot of them require expensive nursing facilities to survive. A lot of them have aging diseases such as Alzheimer disease. All of them eat food until they eventually succumb to one disease or another. In effect, we all age, we all deteriorate, and eventually we all die. I don’t care if you are worth 2 cents or 200 billion dollars. The same rules apply to all of us.

How we handle this problem of aging populations is going to take genius level intelligence. Most likely that will not be found in government leadership. I refer to all government, not just the government here.

The maximum amount of time given us on this planet is very variable. I think the maximum age of any individual on this planet in modern times has been 126 years and that is not documented very well. The Bible says 120 years is the maximum and I believe that might be a better answer.

Industry generally gives up on people at the age of 62-70 years of age. Though a lot of modern companies try to get rid of their (Read More....)

Go Organic When You Go Hiking

When you go hiking you often give importance to your hiking gear and shoes. You also make a checklist of what all you need to carry with you like first aid box and torch and camping equipment and so on. But you forget to give importance to the most essential part of hiking- that is food and water. Not many of us attach importance to our diet when we go to the mountains. I would like to stress here that food and water should be the most essential part of your hiking list.

I Go Organic when I hike

As a marathon runner my trainer advised me to go hiking to strengthen my thigh muscles. Thigh muscles and calf muscles play a vital part of running and so I decided to go hiking to the mountains to work them out. Since I hike for almost an hour or two the glycogen content in my body gets used up and what better way to store up glycogen by taking carbohydrates. A good carbohydrate diet consisting of organic fruits, vegetables, rice, potatoes and pasta, stores up the energy for me to expel during my hiking trips.

Eating small meals from time to time and a light supper the night before you hike will take 24 hours for the food to get processed. Hydrate with pure mineral water and you can also drink liquids consisting of (Read More....)

Best Fitness Machines for Losing Weight

Don’t be Intimidated by Gym Machines- Shape Magazine-11 Ways to Rev Up Your Metabolism

Think of when you first walk into a gym: fitness machines scatter the area. Bikes, treadmills, elliptical machines, weights, and more are separated into their own sections, and here you stand. Do you head to a treadmill?  Do you concentrate on cardiovascular exercises, or focus more on strength training?  Your workout depends entirely on what your fitness goals are.  Every piece of equipment targets a certain muscle group in your body, but some machines may work up more of a sweat than others.
