How to look like a fitness model

Fitness Model

One of those components is the most important thing to get right. 80% of your result will come from this one component. Can you guess what it is?

Exercise – How you use your body

Yoga
Yoga improves your overall strength and flexibility.
You are using your own body weight in ways that challenge your body to adapt. Benefits include better cirulation, balance, oxygenation, flexibity, improved immune system, lower stress and overall sense of well being.

Free Weights
Free weights for resistance training. You can firm and tone your muscles by putting them under stress. Find and learn exercise routines to help you target your major muscle groups. Its best to alternate upper body and lower body training programs. This gives your body time to recover and rebuild.

Cardio
Cardio helps you improve your resting heart rate. You do intense interval workouts that raise your heart rate and improve your overall fitness. At rest you’ll have a lower heart rate because your body has a more efficient circulatory system that is moving nutrients and oxygen around your body.

Rest – How you let your body recover

Get enough rest. If you have been using your body intensely, you have to let it recover.
Preferrably, letting it rest after it is properly nourished with cleansing pure water and clean nutrious food.

Diet – What you put into your body

The number one secret to achieving your personal peak health is making the right choices about your nutrition. You often hear the term, “Eat Clean” or “Healthy Eating”. A lot of time, money and effort can go into preparing fresh, nutritous meals. Choosing healthy ingredients with the right Macro Nutrients takes Knowledge.

Here is a recipe to jumpstart your metabolism and help your body to detox in the mornings.

We got it from Ainsley Rodriguez and after watching her fun preparation of it, we tried if for a few weeks. 

Recipe from @ainsley

Dash of Apple Cider Vinegar (Brags is Best)

Dash of Cinnamon

Dash of Maple Syrup

Dash of Cayenne Pepper

Half a Lemon Juice

8oz of Water

We Added:

Pinch of Crushed Garlic

Pinch of Crushed Ginger

Best Served Shaken not Stirred

What we noticed

The taste might take a little getting used to. It tastes like a spicy glass of lemonade. If you’ve ever been to the Caribbean and tried a spiced Tamarind ball, then the flavour will be familiarly delightful.

Play with the formula/recipe. Make it to your liking. The Lemon, Cayenne Pepper and Apple Cider Vinegar all have a fat burning effect. The Cinnamon helps you control your blood sugar levels but don’t add too much Maple Syrup. The Ginger and Garlic are good for your immune system.

Over time we notice clearer, softer skin with less breakouts. Some of us noticed that the whites of their eyes were less red. We noticed more energy in the mornings all the way to lunch time. Our scales showed an improvement in the muscle to body fat ratio.
Some noticed less heart burn or indigestion which is a benefit of using Apple Cider Vinegar.

Your Mileage may Vary

We recommend adding this to your morning routine. Unless you are allergic to any of the ingredients. Some people do have a pepper allergy. We benefited, perhaps you will too.

How to lose weight fast? Should you?

How to lose weight fast

Dear Reader,
you might be unhappy with your current weight and want to reduce it.
That’s a worthy goal but, safety first! Rapid weight loss can release toxins into your body that results in Skin Rashes, symptoms like brain fog, tiredness or fatigue, and aches and pains in your joints.

An average woman needs about 2000 calories / day to maintain their current weight, and 1500 calories per day to lose 1 lb of weight / week. An average man needs 2500 calories to maintain, and 2000 to lose 1 lb of weight / week.

It’s better to make gradual changes that moves you towards your goal of healthy living.

Here are 11 Things you can try to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

1. Eat more Protein, Fat and Vegetables. So bacon and eggs taste great in the morning.
Substitute buttered toast and jam, a breakfast muffin with carrots and celery.

Best protein sources are:

Meat: Beef, chicken, lamb

Fish and Seafood: Salmon, Tuna, trout, shrimp

Eggs: Whole eggs with the yolk.

2. Cut back on sugars. It’s strange but true that your body wants to store anything more that one teaspoon of sugar as fat. If you keep adding sugar as a fuel source your body won’t switch to burning your extra fat. It’s ok after you are seeing gains to have a “cheat day” a day that you eat some carbs and sweets. But take it easy when you do.

3. Drink more water. It Is the secret weapon of weight loss. Make sure your water is filtered and from a glass or metal container. Plastic can leach unwanted chemicals into your water. It aids with digestion, elimination and overall health. As you burn fat you will want to flush the toxins that may be stored within it with water. Also identify and eliminate any toxins that are in your home.

Diabetes, what you should know

Woman holding glucose meter

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin.

Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily living. The cause of diabetes is related to both genetic and environmental factors such as diet, obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.

More than 100 million U.S. adults are now living with diabetes or prediabetes, according to a new report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The report finds that as of 2015, 30.3 million Americans – 9.4 percent of the U.S. population –have diabetes. Another 84.1 million have prediabetes, a condition that if not treated often leads to type 2 diabetes within five years.

The report confirms that the rate of new diabetes diagnoses remains steady. However, the disease continues to represent a growing health problem: Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2015. The report also includes county-level data for the first time, and shows that some areas of the country bear a heavier diabetes burden than others.

In order to determine whether or not a patient has pre-diabetes or diabetes, health care providers conduct a Fasting Plasma Glucose Test (FPG) or an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). Either test can be used to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends the FPG because it is easier, faster, and less expensive to perform.

With the FPG test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mg/dl signals pre-diabetes. A person with a fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher has diabetes.

In the OGTT test, a person’s blood glucose level is measured after a fast and two hours after drinking a glucose-rich beverage. If the two-hour blood glucose level is between 140 and 199 mg/dl, the person tested has pre-diabetes. If the two-hour blood glucose level is at 200 mg/dl or higher, the person tested has diabetes.

The test may be needed but seems harmful in its process by exposing someone who is already having trouble absorbing sugar to more of it.

Diabetes Types

Type 1 diabetes

Results from the body’s failure to produce enough insulin, the hormone that “unlocks” the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them. It is estimated that 5% to 10% of Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 1 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes

Results from insulin resistance (a condition in which the body fails to properly use insulin), combined with relative insulin deficiency. Most people who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes affects about 4% of all pregnant women – about 135,000 cases in the United States alone each year.

Pre-diabetes

Pre-diabetes is a condition that occurs when a person’s blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. There are 41 million Americans who have pre-diabetes, in addition to the 20.8 million with diabetes.

What to do

Consult your Doctor if you feel you are at risk for diabetes. Ignoring it can lead to organ damage and worsening health.  Try changes in your diet and exercise.  Eat less carbs and sweets.  Try to be active at least 30 minutes per day.  Learn all you can about managing this condition, because knowledge and acting on it can make a world of difference. For the better.

Zuszka Light inspirational quotes:

Here she is speaking about how exercise improves your sense of well-being.

“Why some people procrastinate even though they know they should exercise?

And why do others feel motivated to workout daily?

If you’re the one who’s procrastinating then you must have convinced yourself that exercising is not a pleasant experience and you’re doing anything to avoid it.

The people who are motivated are looking forward to the feeling of strength and confidence that exercise gives them.

They love the sweat and the pain comes with it.

It’s two different perspectives. Here’s what you can do…

Commit to only 5 minutes of exercise every day in the comfort of your home. A ZGYM membership will come in handy. And just notice how does it make you feel.  Notice the difference before and after exercise.

A lot of times 5 minutes becomes 10 or 20 minutes and you realize that you feel amazing. That’s the feeling you should hold onto and associate with working out. Tag a friend that needs to hear this! 💪”
