Summer is just around the corner. You know what that means: it’s time to rummage through your dresser drawers, pull out that swimsuit and face the mirror. Hiding under sweaters and long-sleeved shirts is no longer an option with all of those pool parties, beach weekends and vacations on the calendar.
Social media is everything today. As much as I hate to admit it, it took me awhile to get on board. But once I did, it was instant addiction! The wealth of information, the ideas, the motivational tools and the easy ways to make connections with real people—what’s not to love?
Pre-workout routines are easy. You eat a light, healthy meal about an hour before exercising, mentally plan your session, pump yourself up with motivating music, stretch, warm up and get to it. But what about after your workout?
Have you resolved to lose weight in the new year – but seem to be stumbling? Wishing for a way to support weight loss safely? The latest studies indicate that eating more protein just may be your path to weight loss success.
We all want to gain fat-burning, lean muscle, but in order to do so we have to feed our muscles protein. If you don’t get enough protein from the foods you eat, your body’s ability to make new protein slows down, and it may even break down existing protein (i.e. muscle tissue) in order to supply its needs. If your body starts breaking down its own muscle tissue, your metabolism slows down further, which results in burning fewer calories and fat.
Sports nutrition supplements can be intimidating. With their tough, often masculine-sounding names, many women wonder if they’re OK to take and if they offer any real benefits beyond hardcore, muscle-building goals. One example might be amino acid supplements. Sound complicated, don’t they? But amino acids serve many important functions in the body, and taking a supplement can be helpful for anyone, regardless of fitness goals.
What are your goals for 2013? Most of us resolve to improve our lives in some way, whether it’s shedding pounds, getting fit or eating more healthy foods (oops, are those chocolate chip cookies lurking in my cabinet?!). And when it comes to enhancing your health by slimming down, Vitacost wants to help with these tips for weight loss success:
