Choosing The Right Exercise For You

Choosing The Right Exercise For You

For the longest time you have wanted to start some form of exercise regimen. You keep on putting off when to start with all sorts of reasons. Guess what? You will never run out of reasons and you will always have some excuse to postpone getting started. The best way to get you going on an exercise routine is to find something that you’d like to do and start right off without giving yourself another chance to find a reason not to.

One important key of choosing the right exercise is to find out what you like to do. If you choose something that you’re not as excited about, it will be difficult for you to go at it for an extended period of time. Chances are you might be able to force yourself to start once but when you realize that it’s something you don’t like doing, you will convince yourself that it was really a bad idea to start with.

What to Eat Before and After You Exercise

Eating and Exercise

We all know that our main objective in exercising is to maintain good health. What we eat before and after we exercise plays an important role in achieving this objective. We should eat well so that our body can have the energy not just to exercise but also for our day to day tasks.

A balanced mix of carbohydrates and protein is good for both cardio and resistance workouts. For varying intensity of workout levels, you also need to vary your food mix. Depending on what you plan to do, the amount of protein and carbohydrate you need to consume will have to adjust to it.

Four Root Causes How Illness Enters Our Body

how illness enters our body

There are primarily two ways that illness enters our system, we either “catch” something or we develop them ourselves. Generally, four root causes contribute to either of these two:

1.    Too much toxins in the body.

Toxins are chemicals that get introduced into our body that may have harmful or even poisonous effects on our system. They come from the food that we eat and the water that we drink, and sometimes even from the air that we breathe. Chemicals that are used to prepare the food that we eat also find its way into our body. Although our bod is designed to process these toxins through our liver and kidneys and excrete them from our system through our sweat and body wastes, a disproportionate presence of toxins in our body will cause our vital organs to work hard and may end up not being able to cope anymore.

Eat a variety of fruits and veggies for a healthier you

fruits and veggies for a healthier you

The US government in its food guidelines recommends between five and nine servings of vegetables and fruits should be eaten by Americans every day. This seems to be a lot but it is actually much easier to fit that much servings into one's daily diet. Considering that fruits and vegetables are some of the least expensive yet most nutritious foods in the grocery stores and supermarkets, it would not be that difficult to make the decision to invest in these foods and make them a regular part of your daily food budget.

First we need to understand what a serving actually means. The recommended five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables actually equate to about two and a half cups of vegetables and about two cups of fruits every day. That doesn't seem to be a very difficult goal to reach, does it?

Exercise and Asthma

exercise and asthma

Asthma is a common chronic lung condition that is characterized by coughing, tightening of the chest, shortness of breath, and breathing accompanied by a wheezing sound. It is usually triggered by a person's hypersensitivity or allergic reaction. As such, there is a general tendency for it to occur in people who are environmentally or genetically predisposed to the ailment.

One of the common misconceptions that asthma sufferers have is that exercise is already taboo for them because of their condition. On the contrary however, suffering from asthma should not prevent one from exercising. There are ways to get in shape through exercise even for people with asthma.
