Advances in nutritional supplements, vitamins and even drugs has given rise to bigger & more muscular bodies, but not even muscle enhancing drugs will work without a consistent exercise and diet regi…

Timely Live Well and Feel Better Ideas

Image
One important effort you can make to boost your well-being is to exude confidence. And the first step towards that is to walk talk and strut through life as if you know exactly what you are doing. Take pride in yourself and know you are a unique individual. Strive each day to learn something new and increase your knowledge. There is no greater feeling of authority than that which is gained through knowledge and awareness. Pinpoint what you would like to learn and become more proficient. What stops you from reading books, browsing the Internet or just asking questions?

Learn to love yourself and the life you lead. Yes, it could be better and you can make it so. But if you don’t like how things are going, that is no reason to waste what you already have in hand in the hope of what you can make of it.

Remember, a bird in hand is worth two in the bush! There will always be those extra pounds to lose, those qualities you wish your partner had, that car you wish to buy, or the house you w…

Weight Loss: Low Carbohydrate Diets Need Consistency

Image
Low carbohydrate plans such as Adkins have been popular off and on for some time. 
Following a low carbohydrate diet is what I am doing for weight loss. The key is sticking to them for a period of time and after several months I find it gets easier the longer I stay on the diet.


Variety is the key to the diet. 
Low carbohydrate diets do exclude such staples as white bread, rice, and potatoes. Many people find that they can stick to a meat and vegetables only diet for a couple of weeks but begin to lose interest in the food thereafter. 
At that point, they begin to cheat on the plan. As a result, they gain all of their weight back which is true of any diet. However, because of the extra protein in a low carb diet I find combining it with exercise including strength training, you maintain muscle mass. 
Maintaining and increasing muscle mass will help to keep weight off longer plus less fat gain.

The key to any plan is to stick to the diet. 
Low carbohydrate plans are no different. In …

How Diabetes Has Adverse Mental Effects

Image
Type 2 diabetes can be reversed and the affects can minimized if you eat right and exercise frequently. I know this for a fact because I have managed to do so.

Once you have “cured” your diabetes you are not completely out of the woods, you have to maintain what you are doing to prevent it from returning.

Maintaining your anti diabetes diet and exercise routine requires keeping the mindset that your health comes first. Try to make your work outs fun and enjoyable, listen to music, try team sports or just walk your dogs often. Whatever gets you up and moving.


Try your best to avoid sugar and simple carbohydrates. If you do consume sugar ensure that you consume fiber at the same time which slow and minimize the negative effects on your body. That not mean as long you eat fiber you can have all the sugar you want.

As with all medical conditions and most everything else knowledge is power. Learn all you can from the best sources you can find. Even then you find varying opinions even from…
