Are you getting enough protein? If not, there’s no shortage of powders to help you up your intake. They’re convenient, easy to use and can be measured so you know exactly how much you’re getting in every shake. But not all protein powders are created equal. You may choose a product for its ideal protein content only to discover it tastes terrible and mixes up with clumps.
They teach our children left from right, fractions from percentages, similes from metaphors. They teach them how to speak in an “inside voice” and to raise their hands instead of shouting out the answers. And if you’ve got little ones, they might even be teaching them how to use the potty. So how do you say “thank you, thank you, thank you!!” to your children’s teachers?
Ever made fudge without sugar? Here’s your chance to give it a try. This easy-peasy, pudge-free fudge is naturally sweetened with honey and spice, so you don’t need that added sugar. And, you won’t miss it. The pumpkin and peanut butter punch it up with a flavor you won’t find at the candy store. Read more →
You’ve got the basics covered, right? Whey protein at breakfast and before the gym, a pre-workout with creatine and caffeine, BCAAs while you train, glutamine when you’re done and a casein protein shake at bedtime. Sports nutrition supplements support all your efforts, but without a clean diet to supply the nutrients your body needs, you’re not going to get very far. It’s always best to fuel up with vitamins, minerals and other essentials from real food, but for back up, bodybuilders should consider taking a multivitamin.
With Thanksgiving in a few weeks, we’re getting into the full swing of the holiday season. You may already have party invitations in the mail and travel plans on the calendar. Do you feel a bit worried about getting it all done while managing to stay fit and still enjoying the special occasions that come only once a year?
It’s definitely possible to have a healthy holiday season without having to deprive yourself of goodies and special treats. Here are a few guidelines to help get you through:
Do you find yourself tearing open a bag of chips and crunching away after a heated debate with your hubby? Or maybe all that late-night tossing and turning finally drives you from bed, sending you straight to the freezer for a few spoonfuls of ice cream? It happens to the best of us. Food becomes a source of comfort, a distraction or a reward rather than the fuel and nourishment we need to stay healthy and strong. When it happens often, the extra pounds can start to creep on.
Bra bulge. Muffin top. Love handles. Whatever you call it, that puffy extra layer of fat cushioning your upper and lower back can be maddening. Like belly fat, back fat can be hard for women to lose. But just as doing a gazillion sit ups won’t magically melt away the mound on your midsection, there’s no single exercise or diet secret that’s going to zap the flab on your back. So how can you reshape your rear side and finally rid yourself of those t-shirt ripples?
