One of the essential type of exercise which helps in maintaining healthy weight too is Strength Training. As you gain muscles, you’ll also experience improved balance, flexibility, coordination and bone health. What is important to consider is that besides the resistance bands and running shoes, there’s another essential element involved in building muscle, which is DIET! No, by diet we don’t mean proteins, your body needs lots of supporting nutrients, such as carbohydrates, heart-healthy fats and even a little H20 to build muscles. It’s the combination of protein, these supporting nutrients and eating adequate calories that will help you fuel your body to reach your goals. Checkout these small diet tips which will help you in healthy muscle building –1. Increase the intake of heart-healthy fatsIn 1 gm of fat there are 9 calories, more than double in comparison to carbs and proteins. Does it mean that it is twice difficult to burn off? This is totally dependent as to how you take it. When it comes to strength training, fat is doubly efficient in providing your body with energy. Fat is also necessary for nutrient absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K). So, if you’re going to eat fat make sure to choose heart-healthy fats like monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fats.2. Spread out your protein intakeDon’t aim at loading protein in your meals as they are not stored in the body for energy like carbs and fats. There’s a limit to how much protein the body can use to build muscle at any given time. In order to justify this, there was a study at the University of Texas looked at protein synthesis efficiency in two groups. The first group ate a moderate 30-gram serving of protein, while the second ate a larger serving that contained 90 grams. Despite the second group’s threefold increase in protein, the researchers found no greater boost in muscle synthesis. So, if you are aiming to build muscle, you’ll get the most bang for your protein buck by spreading your daily intake out among all your meals.3. Fuel yourself with waterFuel your thirsty muscles with water. When muscles aren’t well-hydrated, protein production is inhibited. Dehydration can also impact your performance, slow you down, cause greater damage to muscles and even result in digestion problems. Water will keep your GI tract healthy, and it also helps you feel full.4. Target quality and not quantityWhen it comes to proteins it is advised that one should target quality proteins from real foods. Protein drinks, powders, supplements, chocolates, cereals, bars and beyond are everywhere, but are they necessary? Not Really! Protein from naturally occurring sources, such as seafood, lean meats, nuts and dairy, contains all the essential vitamins and nutrients. Protein powders and shakes do not offer any muscle-building benefit above and beyond what real food does.5. Don’t forget the CarbsWhen it comes to muscle building, carbs are essentially important. Crabs- rich food should be eaten at breakfast to replenish fuel that’s broken down during sleep. Carbohydrates are what your body uses for fuel during anaerobic exercises like weightlifting. Additionally, carbs are broken down into glucose, which stimulates insulin, a hormone that transports amino acids into muscle tissues. It is advised that one should go for high-quality carbohydrates because refined carbohydrates — like those found in white bread, white rice, white pasta, sugar-filled snacks and cereals — cause a blood glucose imbalance. Load up on minimally processed whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruits, which deliver fiber, minerals and nutrients but keep blood sugar steady.Here are some sure shot muscle building combinationsHere are simple tweak ideas to improvise your diets and effectively target strength training and building muscles –1. Quinoa – A protein (all 9 essential amino acids) packed whole grain which is high in fiber and gluten-free, making it easy to digest.2. Nuts – The smartest combination out of all, which is rich in heart-healthy fats, fiber and protein. Add a handful to protein-packed Greek yogurt, fiber-filled salads or just enjoy an ounce of them raw before a workout.3. Eggs – The most common source of protein egg whites but what about the yellow yolk? The yolk contains essential fatty acids, folate, iron, calcium and fat-soluble vitamins — all for only about 55 calories! When you eat only the whites, you’re missing out on a lot of nutritional benefits, and also the main flavor!4. Salmon – This tasty, quick-cooking fish is packed with 27g protein per 4-ounce cooked fillet and 1.32g omega-3 fatty acids, making it a must have.5. Chickpeas – They have 10 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein into each cup. Do we need to say anything more? ...

Everything that you eat is not only used as fuel for activity but it also becomes the building blocks for your cells. So you literally are what you eat. Unfortunately, most of our diets are packed with sugar, trans fat and chemicals, which explains why we are so sick all the time. If you want to take your lifestyle to the next level, you have to try clean eating. The concept behind it is eating whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible. The benefits? Keep reading…1. Stress-Free Weight LossThis is pretty obvious but weight loss is always the first thing on our mind when we talk about health – at least for most of us. Many people struggle to lose or maintain a healthy weight. If you focus on consuming real, natural, whole foods, your weight will naturally go down because most of these foods will be rich in protein, fiber, water and minerals and vitamins. In addition, you don’t even have to count calories or macronutrients.2. Better SleepYou’ve probably noticed that you wake up in the middle of the night with an unbearable stomach discomfort if you eat something unhealthy. Eating clean doesn’t only prevent these tummy aches and GERD symptoms but it also ensures that you fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper sleep.3. More EnergyPeople who start eating clean cannot stop for a reason. One of our favorite outcomes of clean eating is that it energizes us better than coffee does! You will understand how low your energy levels were when you were on your junk food diet once you go clean.4. You Don’t Get SickEating clean involves having a large amount of fruits and vegetables, packed with antioxidants and minerals vital for your immune system. If you do get sick, your illness will only last for a very short time and won’t be as severe.5. Fewer MedicinesThe benefits of clean eating include:a) Reduced inflammationb) Improved nutritional deficienciesc) Improved cholesterol levelsd) Improved blood sugar levelse) Lowered blood pressureAnd these are just a few of them. You can only expect yourself to reach out for fewer medicines while following this diet.6. Clearer SkinYour skin is the largest organ of your body. With clean eating, you’re feeding your skin more nutrients it needs to repair and re-grow. Some of these nutrients include, zinc, omega-3s, protein and vitamin C7. Improved Bowel MovementsConsuming more plant foods means that you’ll be taking in more fiber and water that is important for regular bowel movements. Constipation doesn’t only feel uncomfortable but it also causes an unpleasant belly bloat and other health conditions such as anal fissures, colonic conditions, fecal incontinence, hemorrhoids and urologic problems....

Top Foods for Fiber

Dietary fiber is a vital nutrient your body needs for the proper functioning of the digestive tract and to help you feel full. Lack of fiber in your diet leads to overeating, high cholesterol and blood sugar levels, constipation and hemorrhoids. Whether you want to treat your constipation or lose a few pounds, including the following high-fiber foods will help:BranThe simplest way to increase your fiber intake is to load up on some bran. Oat bran is a rich source of soluble fiber (12 grams per ounce), which helps in lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels. On the other hand corn (22 grams per ounce), wheat( 12 grams per ounce) and rice (6 grams per ounce) bran are dense in insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber is great for helping you feel full, for weight loss and for constipation. You can get your daily bran intake by sprinkling them on your favorite hot cereals, pancakes and muffins or get them via high-fiber cereals.Lentils (daal)With 15.6 grams of fiber per cup when cooked, lentils are the best examples of healthy being incredibly delicious. Not only do they make a filling dish, they’re also loaded with protein and minerals. Lentils are more versatile compared to other legumes and they have a shorter cooking time.Black BeansBlack beans can be thrown into salads, rice dishes and mixed together with other high-fiber ingredients such as sweet potato and peppers to create a heart-healthy and filling meal. With 15 grams of fiber per cup, cooked, black beans are also packed with protein and complex carbohydrates.ArtichokesWe love our artichokes roasted with other vegetables to maximize our fiber and mineral intake but you can have this amazing vegetable any way you want and reap its benefits. We can’t understand why they’re so underrated given their high fiber content (10.3 grams for a medium artichoke) but we will definitely recommend this vegetable for any veggie and non veggie lover as it’s incredibly versatile and can be prepared in many ways.AvocadosWe’ve been going avo-crazy recently – who can blame us? They taste great on whole grain toast and in chicken salads. With 10.5 grams of fiber per cup of sliced avocado, there’s no further explanation needed on why avocados can create a filling breakfast. Other important nutrients in avocados include omega-3 fatty acids, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and potassium. Sure, avocados are high on calories due to their fat content but they’re rich in good fats, which makes them excellent for heart health.RaspberriesLooking for a quick fix for your sugar cravings? Try having a cup of raspberries for 8 grams of fiber, a ton of antioxidants and minerals. You can even use raspberries to prepare a breakfast or dessert with coconut, Greek yogurt or oatmeal.FigsFigs are different from other fiber sources because they have a balanced amount of soluble and insoluble fiber. One cup of dried figs will give you 14.6 grams of total fiber along with potassium, copper, manganese, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Figs are also great for lowering blood pressure and for preventing macular degeneration....

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...

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...

fatigue and stress

Just the word ‘stress’ alone can make you feel stressed out. If you’re trying to lose weight, stress is the last thing you need. Not only is it harder to stay away from sugary and fatty foods when you’re stressed, research actually shows that it is harder to lose weight when you’re stressed out. Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness.Symptoms and Causes of Stress and FatigueFatigue is a feeling of exhaustion, lethargy, tiredness which is distinct from stress and weakness. Unlike weakness, stress, fatigue can be alleviated by periods of rest. Fatigue can have both physical and mental state of being tired and weak. Physical and mental fatigue are different, the two can exist together – if a person is physically exhausted for long time, they will also be mentally tired.Did you know that stress is related to 7 of the 10 most deadly diseases in the United States? Think heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Of course, we have lots of stress factors in our daily lives, like work, the economy, money and family problems.Stress is unhealthy, let that be clear. In addition to all of these psychological factors that can cause stress, you might have physical things that cause stress without you even knowing. For example, poor sleep is a major stressor on your body yet most people report not getting enough sleep – they don’t think it’s that important or just don’t know how much of an impact sleep can have on your well-being.In addition to mental and physical stressors, sensitivity to certain foods, blood sugar dysregulation, not getting enough water and poor air quality can all cause stress.How your body responds to stress?Cortisol, the so-called stress hormone, is released when your body receives a stressor and acts almost like a type of adrenalin. If you’ve heard of stress-hormone before, you probably know that it is bad for fat loss. Cortisol is a diurnal hormone, which means your levels of cortisol should peak in the morning (to help give you energy for the day) and slowly drop down as the day progresses so you can fall asleep at night and recharge for the next day. Basically, cortisol is the hormone of energy and being alert.In a normal stress hormone cycle, cortisol will help burn fat as the day progresses. But if your cortisol cycle is not in balance, it will actually help to make cells less responsive and the fat won’t be burned as easily. If you’re in the department of people that ‘need’ coffee in the morning to wake up, there’s a big chance your cortisol levels are not as they should be.Cortisol and fat lossAs mentioned above, cortisol makes cells less responsive, which can make it harder to lose weight. The second way coritsol can make it harder to lose weight is by increasing inflammation. Different types of fat in your body react differently. Your body will store more visceral fat (the type of fat you can grab) and it will be harder to lose weight. Visceral fat releases the same inflammatory signals as stress hormone does. In short: stress signals increase the likelihood of storing more fat.Stress & Fatigue TreatmentFatigue include inflammation, chronic pain, hormonal changes, anemia, poor sleep, depression and stress. If you’re very stressed out and have trouble losing weight, even after trying time after time, your cortisol levels might be the culprid. It can be beneficial to skip the coffee in the morning, exercise regularly and get enough sleep. As well as spending time away from work and other stressors to make sure your stress levels aren’t through the roof.Stay away from STRESS & download Mevo – Weight loss & Fitness App for more such tips which shall be really helpful for you to stay healthy & lose weight faster!App is available both an Android & iOS...

Summer is already upon us, so time is ticking. If you want to get a flat belly fast, and without having to spend hundreds of dollars on the gym keep reading!What you need to know beforehandThe abdomen (which is less formally called belly, stomach, or tummy) is the part of the body between the chest and the pelvis. The abdominal muscles help you in the process of breathing, provide flexibility and movement, and also protect your inner organs for outside forces. In the front of your abdomen, there is a major muscle called the rectus abdomis, also known as the “abs”, it is a paired muscle running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of your abdomen. It’s important to understand how these muscles work and where they are located because the Routines exercises and food  we’re going to explain will make more sense then.CrunchesThis exercise is beneficial for your upper abdomen. Lay on the floor and hold your hands by your ears rather than behind your head to prevent a neck strain, and to prevent that you automatically try to pull yourself up. Bend your knees with your feet on the floor. Then lift your shoulders and upper back up and away from the floor with your face pointing toward the ceiling, while trying to keep your chin straight. Exhale as you come up as far as you can, hold for a second, then inhale as you return to the starting position. Do not touch the floor with your back. Repeat this exercise for 15-25 times a day.Leg dropLie on the floor while your legs are over your hips at a 90-degree angle. slowly lower your legs as low as you can without touching the floor, but make sure not to lift your lower back. Then raise your legs to the starting position. Repeat this exercise for 10 times a day.Pike and extendLie on the floor with your legs extended over your hips. Then crunch up so your hands reach towards your feet. Keep the plans straight forward. Then bring your arms back overhead while at the same time you lower your left leg towards the floor. Then crunch up again while your hands reach both your toes, but this time when you bring your arms back overhead, lower your right leg towards the floor. Repeat this exercise for 20 times a day, alternate sides.Front Bridge exerciseLie on the floor with your legs extended over your hips, just like when you do the pike and extend exercise. Then crunch up so your hands reach towards your feet. Then bring your arms back overhead while at the same time you lower your left leg towards the floor. Then crunch up again while your hands reach both your toes, but this time when you bring your arms back overhead, lower your right leg towards the floor. Repeat  this exercise for 20 times a day.Hip liftsLie on the floor with your legs extended over your hips just like previously explained. Then crunch up so your hands reach towards your feet. Then bring your arms back overhead while at the same time you lower your left leg towards the floor, keeping the leg straight. Then crunch up again while your hands reach both your toes, but this time when you bring your arms back overhead, lower your right leg towards the floor. Repeat this exercise for 20 times a day, alternating sides.Crunch Chop And Crunch Chop TwistLie on the floor while your legs are over your hips at a 90-degree angle and your arms are overhead. Take a deep breath, and when you exhale, lift your head and shoulders off the floor, and as you crunch up, open your legs so your arms go between your legs. Repeat these pulses for 1 minute every day.Side PlankLie on your right side while your legs are extended and your feet and hips resting on the floor on top of each other. We recommend that you do this exercise on a mat, as your hip bones can start hurting. Your right elbow should be directly under your shoulder. Then contract your core muscles and lift your hips and knees off the floor. Hold for as long as you can and then return to the starting position. Then do the other side and repeat for 30 seconds.Get more of such amazing workout plans which can be easily done at home in the Mevo app.Download Android App or iPhone App now!...
