Fit for Healthy Life

Dream.

Believe.

 Succeed.

So why should exercising and maintaining a healthy diet be important to you?  Let's take a look at a few of the reasons:

Reduces the Risk of Heart Disease

Exercise lowers one's blood pressure and increases what's known as good cholesterol (HDL), which transports fat away from the arteries and back to the liver for processing. Excercise can also reduce levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), which forms fatty deposits in the arteries and contributes to heart disease.

You should try to eat certain types of fish, such as salmon and tuna, at least two times per week.  These fish are rich with Omega-3 fatty acids, which may cut the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Reduces the Risk of Diabetes

Research studies have discovered that moderate weight loss and exercise can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes among adults at high-risk of diabetes. 

A diet high in calories, which can make people overweight/obese, raises the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, especially if there is a history of this disease in the family.

Avoid red meats and processed red meats (bacon, hot dogs, etc.).  Instead, eat nuts, whole grains, poultry and fish.

Reduces the Risk of Cancer

Physical activity may lower the risk of cancer by preventing obesity, reducing inflammation and hormone levels, and improving insulin resistance and immune system function. Research shows that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of several types of cancers, including breast cancer and colon cancer.

To help prevent cancer, eat a wide variety of foods rich in nutrients that protect your body's cells from damage.  Get your fruits and veggies!  Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, rasberries, etc. contain powerful antioxidants.  Vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower, may help to fight against and prevent cancer as well.

Reduces Stress

Seems logical that if you feel better physically, your mental state will also improve. Exercise and other physical activity produce endorphins—chemicals in the brain that act as natural painkillers—and also improve the ability to sleep, which leads to stress level reduction.

Foods such as spinach and oatmeal can be good stress-reducers.  Sipping on some hot tea can help with stress as well.  Though you should try to stick to the decaffinated and herbal teas.

Increases Energy

Keeping your body active is the best way to stay alert and energetic.  Exercise can improve energy levels by strengthening the circulation and the heart muscle, and in return will improve energy levels. Scientists have concluded that one of the best ways to beat fatigue and boost energy is to exercise more, not less.

Eat foods such as whole grains (bran cereals), nuts (cashews and almonds), and fish (Halibut), all of which have magnesium.  And eat your breakfast - the most important meal of the day!  Include in your breakfast meal some nonfat yogurt, a high antioxidant fruit, a good fat like nuts or seeds, and raw or toasted oats.

Boosts Confidence

Exercise helps to make us feel and look good, and, thus, plays a big role in making us feel happier and more confident about ourselves.  When you notice your body transforming as a result of excersise and healthy dieting, you feel a sense of accomplishment.  It's something that will be noticeable and transparent.

Some foods that may help boost your confidence include dark chocolate (also helps with stress and anxiety), cheese (eat small portions moderately), and garlic, which is also heart healthy, good for weight loss, and helps with blood pressure.




​Diet & Nutrition

Workout Programs

Supplements

Exercise is only as good as your diet.  The old adage, "abs start in the kitchen", is completely accurate.  To see results requires fueling the body with essential nutrients.  You may be a workout monster, but if you’re not feeding those muscles, then there will be nothing to show for it.  

If your diet is full of unhealthy foods high in bad cholesterol (LDL), sodium, saturated fat, etc., then it's time for you to change things up and get on the right track to eating the foods that your body will reward you for.
