juicing

Juicing is good for your Health; you should include juicing as part of your Diet. I’m sure you must have heard of this advice one time or more and you must be tempted to do as told, especially if you are having some kind of a health problem, be it a weak immune system with you falling sick frequently or simply thinking of shedding a few pounds through juicing. If that’s you, then I suppose the most burning question that you would like to ask is: “How should I get started?” Well, you would most likely be given the standard answer and that is: “Just buy some fruits and vegetables that you like and throw them right into the juicer, simple as that” “What? Is that all?” Yes, it’s easy but there’s more to it if you want to get started off right.

 

Here are 7 Tips to help you get started on Juicing in the right way

 

  1. Take on a gradual start

 

Don’t be too anxious and start off juicing all sorts of vegetables and fruits. Instead take a more gradual approach and start off with the fruits and vegetables that you like and then gradually add-on some vegetables that you don’t really fancy in increasing amount. This will allow time for your taste buds to be more accustom to the various tastes and in due time, you would get to like the taste of those vegetables that you don’t used to like previously. Also, it’s best to get started on milder vegetables like carrots, cucumber or celery first before adding in more powerful leafy green vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli and cabbages which may tend to cause some bowel problems in some people. Also, add one vegetable in small amount at a time so that you would know whether your body can take it or not. If you add a mixture all at one go, it would be difficult to determine the “culprit” should you experience any adverse effects

 

  1. Avoid Consuming Too Many Fruit Juices

 

Fruit juices taste delicious and it is understandable that you would want to juice more fruits than vegetables. However, the sugar content in fruits is high and taking purely or high amount of fruit juices may lead to a sudden surge in your blood sugar level which is not the best thing for your health.

 

  1. Include a Variety of fruits and Vegetables

 

Chances are people tend to stick to their favorites fruits and vegetables but it is advisable that you should include more variety in your juicing diet to reap the maximum benefits. Different fruits or vegetables have different nutritional values and the only way to ensure that you get the best and a more balance intake of nutrition is to vary your choices of the produces that you juices. Try to include a variety from each color group for maximum benefit.

 

  1. Keep Fruits and Vegetables Separate

 

It’s best not to mix fruits and vegetables juices as they require different enzymes for digestion. Combining them together will create bad digestion and in turn affect your absorption of the nutrients. This contradicts your juicing purpose and is not something that you would want. The only exception is apples and carrots which have more of a neutral effect.

 

  1. Drink Your Juices soon After Extraction

 

Always make it a point to drink your extracted juices within 20 minutes of extraction. Juices left to stand unrefrigerated will be exposed to heat and oxygenation resulting in loss of vital nutrients. You can easily tell by looking at the color of juices. Freshly extracted juices have a bright color whereas juices left to stand for some time would appear dull and brownish.

 

  1. Juice Regularly

 

Once you get started on juicing, do it regularly to ensure that you reap the maximum benefits out of it. One way to encourage you to juice regularly is have your juicer always in sight to serves as a good reminder to you to juice. Juicing will do wonders for your overall well being.

 

  1. Last but not least; Get a Good Juicer

 

Find yourself a good juicer to meet your juicing needs. As you would be expecting to juice often, make sure you look for one that is lasting and one that comes with a good warranty period. Also you would want to look for one that is easy to assemble and clean after use as I wouldn’t expect that you would stayed interested should it takes hours for you to clean up the machine after each use.

 

How to Get Abs in a Week

How to Get Abs in a Week – Quick Solution or Long Term Fix?

When you look in the mirror at your abs, are you happy with what you see? If the answer is no then you are not alone. Many of us are unhappy with what we see in the mirror, which means that we start to look for miracle promises. If you search online, then you will find plenty of people telling you how to get abs in a week. However, it probably comes as no surprise to you that these schemes are often fruitless. Getting rid of belly fat is a lot trickier than that.

 

The truth is; if you want to get a flat stomach fast then you probably won’t lose weight in the long run; it has been shown that most people who go on fad diets and diets that are designed to make you drop weight fast are not sustainable in the long run. This just means that once you fall off the diet wagon, you end up putting back on more weight than you lost in the first place.

 

Instead, what you should concentrate on is making changes to the foods that you eat to lose belly fat and weight from the rest of your body. Lots of us get stuck in a rut with the foods that we eat and end up eating more or less out of habit rather than eating foods that we want. Busy life styles mean that we don’t always have time to prepare fresh and healthy food, or at least that is the excuse that we make. That’s not exactly the best way to get abs.
The truth is that rather than looking at how to get a six pack fast we should look at how to eat better in the long run. Taking time out to prepare healthy meals in advance can help. That way you have no excuse when it comes to eating your meal because it is already prepared. Plan meals in advance so when you go shopping you know what you are buying already and are not tempted just to grab microwave meals and foods which are quick to prepare that have little or no good nutritional value.

 

You can lose weight, however asking yourself how to get abs in a week will likely only end up with disappointment. Rather than thinking of it in this way, think of the long run and how you can improve your life, your health, and your weight forever rather than just a quick fix solution which will not do you any good.

 

Building a great set of abs is something that takes time and effort to achieve. Most people will simply give up hope after the first couple of things fail that they try. Remember the old saying “quitters never win, and winners never quit”  instead of getting mad and quitting; you should simply keep trying until something does work for you. People are different and one thing that works for one person, might not work for another. So if your friend was overweight and suddenly he/she became toned with flat abs and it only took them 2 months to do so, the results for you could take more time or even less time. The time it takes you to become slim and toned is going to be partially based on your body type and your habits. Judge your progress based on your own contribution to your weight loss goals, not based on someone else’s experience. However, you may use someone’s experience to get an idea of how long it could take you to firm and tone your own body. Remember there are a lot of other factors that can come into play when you judge your success based on someone else’s experience. Believe you can be trim, do what you need to do as outlined in this and other articles and do it.

Protein Rich diet is the best way to lose weight. The following weight loss tips will help you in selecting the right protein rich foods that will enable you shed lots of weight in the shortest time possible. Having a protein rich diet will give you a head start with shedding pounds.
Why you need proteins to lose weight

Most women perceive the foods rich in protein as fattening or being high in calories, but a protein rich diet will cost you more calories than veggies and fruits does. Additionally, proteins are not as portable as other foods.

The best sources of proteins including dairy, fish, meat and beans are not as convenient or quick as many carbs or fruits or even as veggies. Traditionally, most proteins sources are not usually grab and go and if they are, then they are usually fried or unhealthy.

This may help explain why over a third of women aged between 20 and 40 do not get their RDA of protein as the most recent data from the US Department of Agriculture shows. As a matter of fact, a growing number of nutritionists believes that most current dietary guidelines for the mighty macronutrient are very low.

Furthermore, a study conducted by Hopkins University showed that diets which included around 60% more lean proteins than the recommended 10%-15% reduce blood pressure, triglycerides and bad LDL cholesterol levels are better than the traditional high carbohydrates diets. Some other studies showed that high protein diets can help prevent obesity, diabetes and osteoporosis.

You can easily reduce your waistline by eating larger amounts of proteins. To digest high protein diet, your body will do more work to digest; to metabolize and to utilize it and as a result you will end up burning more calories. The proteins will also take a longer time to leave your stomach and therefore you will remain fuller for a longer time. And the cumulative effects have many benefits for any person desiring to shed any amount of weight.

A study published in Nutrition Metabolism showed that dieters who increased the level of proteins in their diets to 30% ate 450 lower calories each day and also lost around 11 pounds in 12 weeks without employing any other dietary measure.

And if you are a person burning calories and also counting them, protein is essential in ensuring that you lose more fat and gain more muscle. Your body will use the amino acids in the protein to build more lean muscles which will make you stronger and also toned. It will also burn calories including when you are inactive.

The amounts of proteins you need

It’s important that you consume between 0.5 grams and 1.0 grams per every pound of your body weight – 70 to 140 grams per day for people weighing 140 pounds. Scale up or down based on your body weight. Skew on the high end if you are very active and on the lower end if you want to lose more weight. And if both apply to you, select an amount at the middle – roughly 130 grams from the example given. Try to get at least 30 grams of the proteins at breakfast; which equates to about 3 eggs and a bowl of oatmeal. Some of the best protein sources include hard boiled eggs, string cheese, protein powder, roasted soy nuts and jerky. Please check out my
