Tweak of the Week: Burn 100 Calories Anywhere
Exercise will help you reach your weight-loss goals — we know that. But a recent Scottish study of roughly 20,000 adults also found that exercise reduces stress, eases anxiety, fights depression, and boosts happiness and energy levels. The study found that participants could get these benefits with as little as one 20-minute workout per week.
Focus On One Healthy Habit
Making healthy changes to your lifestyle can be very, very overwhelming. There is so much information out there about what you should eat and what you shouldn’t eat. What exercises you should do and what exercises you shouldn’t do. For someone just learning about fitness or healthy eating, it can be a lot to take in.
Fitness Tip: Persistence! - Violate this step and you'll never achieve permanent results. A10-year study was recently conducted which proves that persistence is the single most important aspect of any diet or exercise program. The study followed a group of people (Group #1) who exercised and dieted very strictly, but sporadically. They were compared to a group of people (Group #2) who exercised mildly and followed a very basic diet, but Group #2 never varied from their routine.
Nutrition Bars…or Candy Bars?
"If you’re running a marathon or embarking on a rigorous three-day hike, there may be a place for more traditional energy bars with high calorie and carbohydrate counts, but for most of us, who are just boarding a plane or bouncing between meetings, an apple or handful of nuts is a much better option".
Do you eat protein bars? If so - when?
