Did you know that pets can suffer from heatstroke? Contact your veterinarian immediately if you notice that your pet is displaying any of these symptoms after being in the summer heat: excessive panting, staring, anxious expression, refusal to obey commands, warm and dry skin, high fever, rapid heartbeat, vomiting, or collapse. If you suspect heatstroke, stay calm and act quickly by applying towels soaked in cool water to hairless areas of the body to help bring your pet to a more stable state.
Nutrition is so important if you want to keep your hormones properly balanced. All hormones are made from either cholesterol or amino acids (proteins). So, diets high in carbs and low in protein (and believe it or not, cholesterol) can cause hormonal imbalance.
Since all hormones are related and connected, excessive levels of one may throw others out of balance. For example, the high insulin levels created by many typical American diets high in refined sugar and other simple carbs disrupt the function of thyroid, reproductive and adrenal glands.
Clients often ask me if I do the same things I suggest to them, whether it be a lifestyle decision, strength move or stretch.The answer is...yes.About keeping a food journal...absolutely, positively, yes; I keep track of what I eat. It has been proven over and over again, over many, many years, that food journaling equals diet success long term. Who wouldn't like that?

However, then I was a young man without a care in the world and hardly any responsibilities. How times have changed.

Taking one- to two-minute breaks from sitting throughout the day could help trim waistlines and reduce levels of C-reactive protein, an important inflammatory marker for heart disease, according to a study in the European Heart Journal. This study examined the health effects of prolonged sitting in sedentary and active people. If you find yourself sitting at your desk or in front of the computer for hours at a time, try scheduling brief walking breaks into your day or even just get up for a minute or two.
So far this week I have seen more free advertisements then ever before about how to lose weight. To me this is crazy because each one will only give you a taste then require you to pay an amazing amount to get the rest. Stop wasting time and energy on the free information. You need to hire a "Qualified" professional to design a personalized program for you.
