Eating Right to Maintain a Healthy Lifetime Fitness


Eating properly is essential to maintain a healthy fitness level whether involved in an exercise program or not. Proper eating helps to achieve personal goals, and can be used as a significant weight loss program.

However, each person is different, and will require a different dietary program when training, participating in sports, or involved in a marathon. However, by following general guidelines, any individual can help improve their fitness level and stay healthier.

Eating Right

Any type of fitness program requires that the individual stay hydrated. Because of that, it is essential to drink at least eight glasses of good drinking water each day.

It is imperative to make sure to consume liquids during any exercise routine. Additionally, it is best to consume a well-balanced, healthy diet every day.

It is best not to think of eating three times a day, but at least five times a day with smaller meals for breakfast lunch and dinner, filled in with two additional small meals to round out the day.

Eliminating or decreasing junk food is a critical step to improving an individual’s health. Avoiding junk food is the easiest way to stay away from empty calories, and excess levels of food additives, sugar, sodium and fat.
Additionally, crash dieting or simply starving is the worst type of weight loss program anyone can become involved in when attempting to lose weight or improve fitness.

Alternatively, discuss with a nutritionist or physician about the healthiest methods to properly lose weight.

Do Not Just Avoid Fat

While fat may seem to be the enemy of a healthy lifestyle, it cannot be abandoned altogether. The body requires essential fats to maintain itself.

Because of that, it is imperative to consume monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and avoid saturated fats altogether. The total amount of intake of fats to proteins and carbohydrates should be no higher than 30% of everything you consume.

Feeding Muscles

The foods you consume every day are the nutrients that are used to feed your muscles. To be effective, during any type of exercise routine, muscles require constant energy.

They get this by taking energy from glycogen that can be built on a variety of foods, especially carbohydrates. By consuming up to 6 gram of carbohydrates for every kilogram of your body weight, you can provide an adequate supply of glycogen to feed your muscles.

It is easy to determine exactly how many kilograms you require, by dividing how much you weigh by 2.2. This formulation can convert 1 pound to 1 kilogram.

Seeking Professional Advice

It is best to seek out the advice of a nutritionist or professional trainer to fully assess whether or not your body requires extra protein.

If you are an individual that enjoys vigorous training, consuming extra protein every day might be a worthwhile consideration.

However, the amount of additional protein consumed every day is typically a small amount, even for athletes at a professional level.

The easiest way to obtain a healthy lifestyle is to purchase and use healthy cookbooks. They will teach you how to eat less, eat better, and find tastier foods to consume.

Cholesterol Is A Growing Concern

Cholesterol is a fat which is produced by the liver. Our bodies need it to function on a daily basis. There is an outer layer of cholesterol on all of your cells. However, too high of cholesterol levels can lead to many health complications. In many of the developed countries such as the U.S. and Canada, there has been a growing concern about high levels in both adults and children.



So what causes high levels of cholesterol? There can be a variety of factors such as age, gender, activity levels, diet, and many more.

For example, let’s take age. It appears like so many other health issues, after 20 years we start to slowly decline. The same is true in regards to your cholesterol levels. So as we grow older, it is extremely important that we maintain a healthy lifestyle and thus appropriate cholesterol levels.



How many of you out there enjoy a large classic breakfast? You know what I mean... bacon and eggs, toast, hash-browns and a large glass of cold milk. Well if you eat too much saturated fat, you will likely have high cholesterol. Unhealthy fat is found in products from animals that include beef, pork, milk, eggs, butter, and cheese products. Not to say that you cannot eat any of these foods. Just remember that after 20 years of age... you will have to be moderate when consuming these products.



Unfortunately for all you snack lovers, anything packaged that contains coconut oil or palm oil may also include a lot of saturated fat. Chips, crackers, cookies and such that are store bought are likely such candidates and therefore definite enemies of your battle to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. But once again moderation is the key word here.



Another important thing to help you maintain the battle is your general overall health. You need to keep in touch with your physician and have regular checkups. Doing so will ensure that you do not have any other diseases that will make high cholesterol levels dangerous. Sometimes in life we come across that nasty word... heredity. Why would such a word be nasty? Because our parent's bad genes can be passed on to us and to our children. So if high levels of cholesterol are common in your family's lineage, then for sure you need to be aware of the risk for you.



This is such an obvious prevention that it seems silly even to mention it. Smoking... smoking cigarettes and other tobacco related product kills. It can do so in oh, so many ways. Most people think of lung cancer when thinking of diseases caused by smoking. Who would have ever thought of high cholesterol! But the research shows that smoking can kill you in more ways than one.



So it's up to you. High cholesterol levels can be controlled by simple things such as your diet, you activity, and your regular visits to the doctor. Enjoy your life by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Do not let high cholesterol make you a member of what appears to be a growing concern for people’s health.

Keto Ultra Diet 101
by: Warren

There’s a diet that’s so popular most people have heard of it before. That’s the Keto way of eating. In short, this means eating extremely low carb, but allowing high fat as part of the eating plan.

The Keto Ultra Diet is a diet that uses a supplement that works to burn fat. The way that it does this is by causing your body to enter into ketosis. When you’re eating the keto way, because the amount of carbs you eat is so few, in order to have the energy and fuel it needs, your body begins to make ketones.

Ketones are what burn fat. When you take the supplement, it can help you to go into ketosis. To get started on this diet, you would need to purchase the supplements and follow the appropriate dosage, which is usually around 2 capsules per day.

But before you begin using the supplement, you need to understand how the keto diet works because they’re made to work together. When you follow the keto diet, it means that your meals focus on a lot of fat, a little protein and few carbs.

For the entire day, you should only consume about 20-50 carbs (depending on what your own body needs to enter ketosis). The majority of your meal should consist of fat. You’ll get these fats from foods such as avocado, healthy oils, etc.

Because of the low amount of carbs, your body begins to break down fats into ketones.
The supplement works with the keto diet because of the beta-hydroxybutyrate or BHB that it has.

When you take this, it lowers your blood sugar and can send you into ketosis even if you’ve consumed more than 50 carbs. This diet is good for almost anyone and especially people who need to take weight off fast.

Someone who’s obese and has developed health problems due to the weight can successfully use keto. Because it can lower the blood glucose so effectively, someone who has diabetes would want to be doctor monitored while on the diet.

Some people believe that a state of ketosis can be unsafe for diabetics. It’s also healthy for people who have a sedentary lifestyle and are looking to take some weight off quickly before they can focus on an exercise regimen.

You will have to be aware of some mistakes with this diet that can trip you up. You have to be sure that you’re drinking enough water. You need that with the eating plan as well as with the supplement.

You’ll also want to make sure that you clearly understand that kinds of fats that you’re supposed to be eating and that it doesn’t contain a bunch of sugar. Another mistake to be on the lookout for is not consuming enough protein.

At least 20% of your meals should consist of protein - especially if you’re not active. If you’re exercising, depending on the type of exercising you’re doing, another mistake is not adjusting the amount of protein that you eat.
