Fortunately, we were able to come up with a list of the top diets in the world today that thousands of people follow in their daily lives. Chances are you’ll find your lifestyle choice right here.The Ketogenic DietThe ketogenic diet or keto diet is a low carb diet plan that aims to push your body to burn more fat by using it as a fuel source. It leads to a process of ketosis in the body, allowing the body to produce more ketones.Ketones are by-products of fat breakdown in the liver which can be used as fuel by the body, the brain included. Ketosis typically occurs when your body is deprived of blood glucose and you can allow your body to do so by consuming fewer carbs and moderate protein levels. One obvious benefit of the keto diet or ketosis is that it leads to fat loss and overall weight loss. You also build your performance at the gym and boost muscle growth.Mediterranean DietThis diet has been a popular choice among many dieters for several great reasons. It’s a Mediterranean-based diet that allows food staples that are normally consumed in countries surrounding the Mediterranean sea, such as Greece and Italy.Your prime focus should be to get a lot of good fats into your system. Some great sources include fish, olive oil, nuts and seeds, whole grains, fruits and vegetables and legumes. The diet also promotes the consumption of red wine in moderation.South Beach DietDesigned by Florida-based cardiologist, Arthur Agatston, MD, the South Beach Diet was created to prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other serious ailments among patients.The diet follows a simple rule: Have your meal before you feel hungry. Most people are likely to overeat when they’re hungry, which ultimately results in weight gain. The diet encourages you to eat before you’re hungry, so that you eat less, until you’re satiated.It promotes the consumption of lean protein, low-fat dairy and good carbohydrates such as those from fruits and vegetables and whole grains. The first phase of the diet is pretty strict but as you go into the maintenance phase, you’re allowed to have your occasional treats.Atkins DietOne of the most popular diets today, the Atkins diet is an effective low carb, high protein regime that comes with a stringent set of rules that will help people lose weight.You’re allowed to consume 20 grams of carbs every day for the first week and then slowly increase it every week.Your aim here should be to stop consuming processed junk entirely and foods containing refined flour, starches and sugar. Healthier high carb sources such as whole grains are to be eaten in moderation as well, until you are at the maintenance phase.Download Mevo app now from –App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/mevo-weight-loss-fitness/id1082646969?mt=8Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mevolife.mevo&hl=en...

Running Your First 5K Race

You’ve been going to the gym for months. You’ve finally braved the treadmill and built up some endurance. The person that’s been running next to you has told you at the water fountain that they’re training for their sixth 5k run. You go home and Google how far 5k actually is. Three miles! Three miles doesn’t sound too hard. You’ve been running/walking up to a mile for the past month.You start doing your research and find a couple of programs that say they can get you to your first 5k in a matter of weeks. You feel pumped and confident in your ability to complete this run. So, you sign up for your first 5k and tell yourself you’ll be a champion is six short weeks. How hard is it to actually run a 5k race, and how do you train for one?Getting Started: How to Train for Your First 5k?Make a plan and actually sign up for a race. If you’ve devoted your money to something you’re more likely to devote your time as well. The difference between training and working out is that with training, every workout is purposeful and brings you closer to completing your goal. Training takes time and dedication. You won’t be fast at first. You probably won’t even be able to run that long. Don’t let that detour you from completing this task you’ve set out to do. Champions aren’t born overnight.Review your schedule and find time wherever you can and set it aside specifically for training. Before or after work if a great time for a workout, or bring extra clothes and start training midday. Running gets your metabolism pumping and gives you a boost of energy. It’s best not to run or exercise right before bed. Remember to stretch before running, especially if you’re a beginner. You can cause muscle cramps or shin splints if you don’t prep your body.Start off with sprints of running during your walking routine, slowly building up your pace to a “run-walk,” eventually running 30 minutes altogether. This allows your mind, body, and spirit to all get on the same page. Focus more on going farther and not necessarily harder. Increase your distance before you increase your speed. Don’t run more than three days per week and alternate run days with rest days. This allows you to recover, adapt, and enjoy running.Take Time to Recover and Train ComfortablyThe key to completing a 5k run is to listen to your body. Did you know that the body actually grows stronger when it’s resting? This is why alternating between run days and rest days is so important. It allows your body to be stimulated by the exercise and then recover during your rest days. Many beginners make the newbie mistake of over-training and running too much too soon, causing energy like leg splints to arise. If you listen to your body, you can prevent not only body aches and fatigue but mental and physical fatigue as well.Another good way to train comfortably is by taking the “talk test.” If you’re running at a comfortable pace you should be able to talk through running. If you’re gasping for air, however, that means you’re at a pace that you are not ready for. Adjust your pace accordingly, and when you can talk through running, you know you’re exactly where you need to be.When you run too fast, for too long and too quickly, it can destroy your mental confidence when your body doesn’t respond the way you had planned. Simply put, the fun factor drops, you start to count the seconds until you’re finished, and your risk of injury goes up. Once your heart is out of it, it can be hard to keep your head in the game. The secret to finishing your 5k training is knowing you can run a little further each day, bringing you closer to completing your goal and being a champion in your own right!Download Mevo app now from –App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/mevo-weight-loss-fitness/id1082646969?mt=8Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mevolife.mevo&hl=en...

The Importance of Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that’s naturally found in the body and is present in many of the everyday foods you consume. Magnesium can also be found in supplements and medicines normally found in your medicine cabinet, such as antacids and laxatives. This powerful mineral aids in biochemical reactions in the body, muscle, and nerve function, blood pressure regulation, protein synthesis, and blood glucose control.Magnesium is imperative for energy, bone, and DNA production. Without this mineral, calcium and potassium ions could not be transported across the cell’s membranes. This process is important for muscle contraction, impulse conduction, and normal heart rhythm. It’s proven difficult to get a spot-on and accurate reading of magnesium levels due to its presence in bone and cells.Only a trace amount of magnesium can be found in the blood serum. A medical professional can assume that you have high or low magnesium levels by assessing whether your blood serum levels test in the normal range via a blood test. Normal serum concentrations range between 0.75 and 0.95 millimoles (mmol)/L.Hypomagnesemia is defined by levels less than 0.75. So, with magnesium being a vital part of your body’s function, what can you eat to keep your levels at a normal ratio and what is affected when your body is deprived of this important mineral?Foods rich in MagnesiumIf you have low magnesium levels (Hypomagnesemia), one of the easiest ways to help raise them and keep them at an appropriate level is by eating magnesium rich foods. Magnesium is wildly found in plant and animal foods. Think green leafy vegetables such as spinach, nuts, whole grains, legumes, and seeds. In general, foods that are rich in dietary fiber have been found to contain a good source of magnesium.If you’re in need of this mineral, stay away from processed foods, as the process in which they remove the nutrient-rich germ and bran can lower magnesium levels substantially.If your levels are low, ask yourself, are you getting enough water? Bottled, tap, and mineral water are great sources of magnesium. Be careful, though, the amount of magnesium found in water can vary by brand and source. If you’re a numbers person, then you would be happy to know that 30% to 40% of dietary magnesium consumed is absorbed by the body.Magnesium can help with…PMS: Along with mood swings, PMS can cause symptoms such as heavy abdominal cramping, fatigue, and water retention. By increasing ingestion of magnesium rich foods, you can improve your general mood along with reducing bloating and stomach cramps. You can also go to your local health store for dietary supplements containing this mineral.Diabetes: Can be prevented or helped by consuming magnesium. The most common causes of diabetes are the result of insulin resistance. Magnesium has been shown to be effective in stopping insulin resistance or helping protect against it in the first place.Migraines: People who suffer from migraines have lower levels of magnesium than those who do not. Magnesium can have a tremendous effect in reducing migraines or stopping them in their tracks.Download Mevo app now from –App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/mevo-weight-loss-fitness/id1082646969?mt=8Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mevolife.mevo&hl=en...

Importance of Warm up Exercises
Added To Favorites

Doing a warm-up is an important part of any exercise regimen. It may not seem like it at first, but you’ll notice that a warm-up gives several benefits to your body as you go through with any exercise program.The key to releasing your body’s full energy potential in a workout session lies in your ability to get your muscles all “warmed-up” before any exercise routine. Warming-up can make a huge difference in how you perform your workout, you just need to give it a try.Whether you are a newbie that’s still starting your health program, or already a fitness buff who is a pro when it comes to exercise and working out; a warmup is a mandatory part of your routine.IMPORTANCE OF WARMING UPSince warm-up is essential for every type of workout, here are the reasons why it is so important that you do one before your main regimen:1. Warming up conditions your muscles for the workoutThe main idea of the warm-up is to get your muscles fired-up for your routine. Most of your muscles are in a period of stasis prior to the workout, and to “wake” them up, it’s important to do warm-up exercises first. If you don’t, you’ll feel sluggish doing your workout only after a few reps or so.2. Warm-up is essential to prevent injuryIt is not only in exercise that warm-up matters greatly—athletes get their bodies all warmed-up before they practice or ahead of their games. Why? Because when you warm-up properly, the muscles can stretch further without breaking.Warming up before any type of workout gradually increases the tension that the joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles can take. Without proper warm-up (especially for athletes), injury for the mentioned body parts are imminent, and can hinder good performance. It is the same principle when it comes to your own routines—no warm-up can get your muscles injured, and can cost you days to weeks of pain and no-workout sessions.3. It increases flexibilityNot only does warming up prevent injury, but because it gradually increases the load that the body can take, it helps increase the muscles’ flexibility. You can be able to stretch your muscles further, thus being able to achieve your body’s potential all through the workout.4. Warm-up is important in giving the right psychological conditioning for the upcoming workoutAs warm-up conditions the body for the impending workout, it can also help signal your brain that you are going to take on a “physical challenge”, therefore helping your mind to focus in the workout.When you start to warm-up, the body sets the appropriate conditions for your body needed for the upcoming minutes of exertion during your routine. As the heart rate gradually increases and the muscles become warm, the brain is reminded that you are going to expend energy. This, especially for workout newbies, is critical; aside from physical strength, the right mindset can help you to finish your workout.Even if it is so much tempting to exclude warming-up in an exercise routine, leaving it out causes more harm than good. The most successful people in the sports and fitness industry know this, and put extreme value in warm-up in the beginning, and cool-down towards the end of their routines.So if you want to be able to do better in your work-out, make sure that you do the proper (and appropriate) warm-up needed for your exercise regimen.Looking for some warm up exercises?

So what does going on this diet mean, exactly?The Mediterranean diet uses the basic concepts of healthy eating, adding a splash of flavored olive oil and other components dictated by the traditional cooking style of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.This diet is based on traditional foods eaten in countries like Greece and Italy back in the 1960s. While most diets advocate eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, and healthy fats, the Mediterranean use subtle differences and variations which seem to make a difference in cutting the risk for heart disease.What Are the Actual Heart Health Benefits?Research is proving that those of Mediterranean descent have a lower incidence of many deadly diseases and are very healthy.

Which potatoes are healthier Sweet Potatoes Or White Potatoes Mevolife

When it comes to potatoes, the general consensus it that it is a delicious and versatile vegetable used in many dishes such as mashed potatoes and casseroles, and in fact, potatoes are the fourth most consumed food-crop in the world. But are potatoes really good for your health? And what are the nutritional differences in potatoes and sweet potatoes?Sweet potatoes and potatoes are both root vegetables originated from South America, but they have little in common apart from their origin and name. Potatoes can grow in most climates and soil, making it an easy crop to grow, but sweet potatoes tend to be more delicate.The sweet potatoes are not immune to cold weather and frost, and tend to be sensitive to daylight. The insides of sweet potatoes are not always orange or yellow, but sometimes can be purple.Purple sweet potatoes contain peonidins and cyanidins, which possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These properties, when passing through a person’s digestive system, can reduce the health risks posed by oxygen radicals and heavy metals.What about orange sweet potatoes?The orange colored sweet potatoes, on the other hand, are considered by some to be one of the best sources for beta-carotene, which convert into vitamin A, an essential vitamin.It is said that sweet potato alone could fill 90% of vitamin A needed for a day. Study shows that feeding sweet potatoes to children is an efficient way to provide children the necessary amount of vitamin A.Beta-carotene is also an antioxidant, and helps cleanse the body of toxin. To maximize the intake of beta-carotene in sweet potato, researchers suggest including 3 to 5 grams of fat, which converts into about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. The recommended method of cooking is boiling or steaming, as these two methods best preserve the nutrition in sweet potatoes.Potatoes get a bad rap from foods like French fries and potato chips but actually have many health benefits. Potatoes are very good sources of vitamin B6, and good sources of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid. Vitamin B6 is essential for the formation of new cells in the human body, and are active everywhere in the body.B6 is also needed to serotonin, which prevents depression, and melatonin, which provides your body with quality sleep. Potatoes also have antioxidant properties, which comes from the variety of phytonutrients they contain. Study states that potatoes also have the potential to lower blood pressure, effectively preventing disease. They also contain lots of fiber in their skin, so to take full advantage of potatoes, consuming potato skin is recommended. The best way to preserve most nutrients in potatoes when cooking them is steaming or roasting them without peeling off the skin.TakeawayIn conclusion, even though they share very little in common, both potatoes and sweet potatoes are great sources of various nutrients, and we honestly think both are great. Sweet potatoes are generally considered the healthier option because white potatoes are often related to greasy foods and fast food, but are actually quite good for you, and both are excellent options as long as you follow a healthy cooking method.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Playstore   iOS Appstore...

In an ideal world, we would all be fit and stay healthy without having to try, but in reality, staying healthy in today’s busy world is no easy task, especially if you need to stick to a budget. But worry not, for we know you are busy and have compiled a list of things that won’t drain your energy or break the bank.Here are two easy steps to follow if you are concerned about your health but too busy to devote much time or money:Eating healthy is a big part of staying healthy.Now, we know that many people think eating healthy on a budget means living on lettuce salad without dressing, but it really doesn’t have to be that boring… at least not all the time.The point is to focus on getting more protein, as these are what many people are missing from their budget diet. Some of our suggestions for affordable protein items include frozen chicken breast, tuna cans, plain yogurt, milk and eggs.Not all proteins are equal in quality, but animal protein tends to deliver all the amino acid we need. Incorporating more protein into your diet can really change the way you feel and look, as you will feel more energetic and will gain muscles more easily. Some other benefits of protein include lowered risk of premature death, lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and lowered risk of cancer.As an added bonus, your hair and nails would look great too. The recommended daily amount for adults is 46 grams per day for women and 56 grams for men.Additionally, reducing the intake of red meat greatly reduces the chances of having heart disease and diabetes.Physical activity is free.Research shows getting more physical activity not only helps you stay fit and look great, but also helps in preventing at lease six disease, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and mental disorders like depression.However, to reap benefits from physical activity, at least 30 minutes of constant activity is recommended. These activities don’t have to be anything extensive, but activities such as jogging, fast walking, and swimming are all excellent examples of physical activities.If you are not an exercise kind of person, physical activities could be made more enjoyable when you join a group of other people or find some activity that you actually enjoy doing. Many people make hobbies out of activities such as dancing, biking, swimming and hiking, or even rock climbing. Be sure to talk to your doctor before you getting started, especially if you have medical conditions.Sticking to these plans might mean less weekly visits to Burger King and more gruesome exercise for some people, but as the old adage goes, there are few things in life that matter more than one’s own health, and it’s always a good idea to maintain health before it starts deteriorating. Furthermore, if you drink alcohol or smoke, it helps to lessen the amount you drink or smoke if staying healthy is your priority.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Play store  /   iOS Appstore...
