Must be Stay Fit and Healthy

Your first step would be to assess your current state and work on the areas that need improvement. You may need to vary your routine, so that exercising becomes a pleasure, not a torture. Consider your options – a walk in the park, swimming at the club, home exercise equipment – perhaps you can attempt something new every day so that it does not become a chore.

Whatever your choice, weight training to build muscle, aerobic fitness for the lungs and heart and stretching exercises should be a part of your plan. It is important to remember that while exercising, you need to pay attention to your diet. Depending on the length of your work-outs, your diet will affect the fuel used by your body. Weight training and exercise may increase your calorie intake almost to 1500 per day. Your diet will need proteins, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates. Plenty of water is necessary to avoid dehydration. Eating frequent small meals may be better than two large meals. Avoid junk food and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.

Healthy Fiber Facts

You haven’t really taken a good look at fiber sources and what is it in them that can do all the healthy stuff you read or hear about. Here are just a few of the amazing fiber facts:

1. Grains are the most common sources of fiber. Dietary fiber is simply plant matter that is not easily digestible. Whole grain and concentrated grain products are great fiber sources. Unfortunately, although these are really healthy foods, most people will stay away from them, perhaps because of the bland taste.

2. Fiber rich foods are known to lower bad cholesterol which is the cause of most chronic diseases such as hypertension, stroke, cardiac diseases, kidney ailments and colon cancer. With the right amount of fiber, you can reverse the effect of high cholesterol that usually comes from consuming too much animal fat.

Reducing Sugar Intake

1. Pass up on prepackaged foods.

Sugar or any of its components are added by food producers in their canned or frozen products, such as those stuck-into-the-microwave, ready-to-use foodstuff you use for your Italian meal preparations like spaghetti or pizza.

2. Stick to organic.

When sugar craving hits you, go for unprocessed alternatives such as fruits, honey or molasses. These are better for your health than refined sugars, such as the white sugar that you put in cakes and cookies and candies, brown sugar and corn syrup.

3. Sugar Capping.

Fix your day by day consumption of sugar and stick to it. No tricks! Give up puddings or confectionaries after meals. Your passion for sweets grows less when you get used to skipping desserts.

Get Rid of Unwanted Fat

1. Keep Your Mind Healthy

If you have a lot of chaos of drama going on in your life, it is going to be hard to concentrate on losing and weight and getting healthy. If you need counseling, now is the time to get it. There are many online resources that can help you get through the rough times. If you are an emotional eater, it will be hard to lose the weight if you do not find a way to stop using food as comfort.

2. Plan your meals

To avoid side effects, it is advised to simply eat well-balanced meals. Eat a variety of food, each coming from the four food groups.

They also aid in regular and easy bowel movement. Water-soluble fibers take more time to digest. They stay in the stomach for a longer period. This will give a longer sensation of being full.

Another good idea is to keep a pocket notebook. Write down anything that goes into your mouth. It

Good Nutrition

Every meal should consist of a balance of complex carbohydrates (brown rice, wheat bread, pasta, etc.,) also simple carbohydrates (fruit), lean proteins (chicken, egg whites, fish) and or low fat dairy products that contain high amounts of protein (cottage cheese, yogurt etc.). Use minimal amounts of fats, examples of good fat would be: all natural peanut butter, olive oil, almonds, avocados, and flax seed oil.

An example of a great breakfast would be 3 egg whites, a piece of wheat toast with a tbs. Of natural peanut butter, and an apple. A healthy snack would be a cup of low fat cottage cheese, a hand full of grapes and maybe some baby carrots with a tablespoon of non-fat ranch dip. A perfect dinner would consist of a 6-ounce piece of halibut, a side of broccoli, and a 4-ounce baked potato with a tbsp. of non-fat sour cream!

For quicker results, always pick some kind of lean protein to eat first, and then match it with a complex carbohydrate rather than a simple sugar. This will even out your blood sugar so your body will burn fat rather than excess sugar in your blood stream!

With organs not getting the blood they need, fluid builds in places it shouldn’t, the lungs, the gastrointestinal tract, the liver and even the arms and legs.

The symptoms often appear slowly, at first only when you’re very active, though over time you might feel breathing problems and some other symptoms even when you’re resting. At age 40 your chance of heart problems at some point during your lifetime is almost one in five.

For the current lifestyle and heart failure study, 38,075 subjects in Finland were examined to compare the chances of heart failure between men and women. After a follow up of 14 years, 638 of the men and 445 of the women had been diagnosed with heart failure.

Even after accounting for risk factors we know impact heart failure (high blood pressure, heart attack history, diabetes), healthy lifestyle choices brought a lower likelihood of disease.
