Exercise tips

Beginners as well as more advanced fitness levels will see the biggest benefits if they work out three to four times a week. The main thing is that you schedule a rest day between the different sessions. You should take at least one day off after two consecutive days of strength training.

Before starting a workout you must ensure a proper warm-up is completed to heat and loosen the body. Different forms of sport and exercise require different warm-ups, but as a general rule, a dynamic warm-up will get all the joints moving one at a time, then all together, taking the body through progressive movements that loosen and stretch your muscles. 

Both cardio and strength training with weights will return a positive result on your body posture and mental wellbeing. Remember to always consult your doctor or personal trainer if you are worried about certain activities or sports. Always set realistic goals and maintain regular consistency with your workout regime to achieve the best results.

Remember that even if you follow all these tips, there will be ups and downs, setbacks and victories. Just be patient, and don't give up, hang in there, and you'll see solid results.

Nutrition tips

Sugary drinks are the most fattening things you can put into your body. This is because liquid sugar calories don't get registered by the brain in the same way as calories from solid foods. For this reason, when you drink soda, you end up eating more total calories.

Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy. They are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber and various other nutrients. Studies show that nuts can help you lose weight, and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

The importance of getting enough quality sleep can not be overstated. It may be just as important as diet and exercise, if not more. Poor sleep can drive insulin resistance, throw your appetite hormones out of whack and reduce your physical and mental performance.

Our bodies are about 60% water and drinking enough water can have numerous benefits. One important factor, is that it can help boost the amount of calories you burn. We need to drink water to keep our body systems running smoothly, optimize metabolism, boost energy levels, and promote good digestion, just to name a few.

Vegetables and fruits are the "default" health foods, and for good reason. They are loaded with prebiotic fiber, vitamins, minerals and all sorts of antioxidants, some of which have potent biological effects. Studies show that people who eat the most vegetables and fruits live longer, and have a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and all sorts of diseases.

Eat leaner meats, cut any visible fat from meat before you cook it, remove the skin from chicken and other poultry and eat lean cold meats like ham, turkey or roast beef rather than fatty meats like salami, devon, fritz or metwurst.

A healthy diet is rich in fiber, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, "good" or unsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids. These dietary components turn down inflammation, which can damage tissue, joints, artery walls, and organs. Going easy on processed foods is another element of healthy eating. Sweets, foods made with highly refined grains, and sugar-sweetened beverages can cause spikes in blood sugar that can lead to early hunger. High blood sugar is linked to the development of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and even dementia.

Physical activity is also necessary for good health. It can greatly reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, breast and colon cancer, depression, and falls. Physical activity improves sleep, endurance, and even sex. Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise every week. Strength training, important for balance, bone health, controlling blood sugar, and mobility, is recommended 2-3 times per week.

Just remember, you don’t have to be ridiculously good-looking to be successful at online dating. What does increase your odds of meeting more people in person is when your profile shows your hobbies, your sense of humor, your full life, pets, and interests. They tell us that we have things in common with you, lots to talk about, and that it looks like fun to hang out with you.
