Don’t Worry, You Won’t ‘Bulk-up’ from Working Out…Unless you want to!

First of all ladies, we are not made to get as big as men. We simply do not have the composition. Lifting weights increases muscle tone, which in turn burns fat at a much more rapid pace than doing 30 or 60 minutes of aerobic activity. Weight training is also excellent for increasing bone density which is critical for preventing osteoporosis and broken bones.

Adding weight training to your workout regimen will only help you reach your weight loss goals faster. In addition, toning your muscles will help you to maintain your weight loss. It really takes a lot of work and even years to grow large muscles, if you decide to take that path.

Tips to increase your fruit and vegetable intake

In an earlier post, I posted a diagram of the importance of water and its effects on the body (why water is so important). In addition to taking in the proper amount of water (at least 64 ounces per day), eating vegetables and fruits are also very important. Incorporating them into your diet are essential.

Many diseases develop in the body when it does not release wastes properly, particularly digestive diseases. Green vegetables and fruits are two of the key elements that help the digestive system eliminate potential harmful bacteria from the body.  If you struggle with getting these into your diet, checkout >>  Tips to increase your fruit and vegetable intake.

Top 10 Foods That Fight Flus And Colds

fluIt’s that time of year, #flu/cold season is upon us. How do you stay well? I’ve learned to incorporate many foods, herbs, and spices into my diet, which along with regular #exercise, keeps my immune system up and running well. It is extremely important to me to support my #immune #health due to my #colitis. Catching a cold or the flu will only make my condition become active or worsen. I’m all about staying in remission, because active #colitis is no joke.

Below are my top 10: 

  1. Bone broth / chicken broth – great for a bedtime snack. Broth, alone, is actually packed with all the essential amino acids that the body needs. Aids is recovery for many internal illnesses.
  2. Garlic and onions – many people take garlic pills, which are more potent than simply crushing and consuming a small bulb of fresh garlic.
  3. Citrus fruits – I buy frozen fruit and mix them in my protein shakes.
  4. Ginger – great for warming up the body and fighting colds instantly
  5. Fermented Foods – yogurt, kefir, etc.
  6. Cold-water fish – a protein-rich food
  7. Sweet potatoes – a great complex carb for after your workout. I eat one a day. LOVE THEM!
  8. Mushrooms – great alone as a side dish (which is my favorite way to eat them) or mixed with your green vegetables
  9. Brazil nuts – I grew up on these. My parents always kept nuts in the house.
  10. Pumpkin seeds / sunflower seeds – great for the gut as well.
