Protein shake recipes are fast becoming popular for their simplicity and benefits in exercise. Protein is one of the most important nutrients your body needs to improve its muscles, bones and skin. Keep in mind though, that protein shakes should not replace your diet, but only supplement it! Also remember that the recommended amount of daily protein intake for an average adult is only 0.75g per kilogram of body weight which averages to about 45 to 56g of protein a day!
There is a huge buzz about weight loss cookies on the net these days. Several websites have started promoting and selling various brands.

The Durian is a fruit widely found in southeast Asia known as the “king of fruits”. The edible yellow color flesh emits a distinctive strong odor, even with the husk intact. While some consider this smell as fragrant; most people find it overpowering and offensive.
Nutritional and medicinal properties
The following few paragraphs are taken from the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian
Durian fruit contains a high amount of sugar, vitamin C, potassium, and the serotonergic amino acid tryptophan, and is a good source of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. It is recommended as a good source of raw fats by several raw food advocates, while others classify it as a high-glycemic or high-fat food, recommending to minimise its consumption.
What we know as the vegetable beetroot is a beet (Binomial name : Beta vulgaris) variety with a edible red color tuber. Betalain pigments present in the cell vacuoles of beetroot are responsible for this distinctive red color.
Beetroots are said to be rich in betaine, a nutriant good for cardiovascular health. Betaine help reduce the homocysteine concentration which is harmful to blood vessels which can cause heart strokes and diseases.
Beetroots are also rich in ‘boron’, an element helping in the production process of certain human sex hormones.
The fat burning exercises above will help you burn fat and calories fast. They are your short term answer to burning fat. They are more efficient at this than, for example, long runs.
But keeping excess fat off, is a life long process. So you have to consider your long term goals, which may change with age and your life circumstances.
For the long term, your number 1 priority has to be with exercise you enjoy. It goes without saying that you also continue your healthy diet.
If you’re going to eat healthily, you don’t just need to balance your diet: it’s no good eating just the right proportion of carbohydrate, protein and fat if you’re still eating far too much food! That’s why food labels also tell you how many calories the food contains, so you can limit your calorie intake and make sure not to consume too many in a day.
A person working at a high pace or in a very hot environment loses water and salt through sweat. This loss should be made up by having the worker consume more water and salt. Fluid intake should equal fluid loss; in other words, what goes out must come in. On average, about one litre of water each hour may be required to replace the fluid loss. Plenty of cool (10-15°C) drinking water should be available on the job site and workers should be encouraged to drink water every 15 to 20 minutes even if they do not feel thirsty.
While it’s most important for an employer to provide a safe and healthy workplace, it’s also important to encourage healthy lifestyles among their employees. Healthy eating programs can be a great first step. They can bring lots of people together to learn how to improve their health both at work and at home. As always, these programs should be part of a complete workplace health program and should not take resources or attention away from workplace hazards that may be present.
Before you start:
The benefits of weight training overall are comparable to most other types of strength training: increased muscle, tendon and ligament strength, bone density, flexibility, tone, metabolic rate, and postural support. There are benefits and limitations to weight training as compared to other types of strength training.
Weight training versus resistance training
Resistance training involves the application of elastic or hydraulic resistance to muscle contraction rather than gravity. Weight training provides the majority of the resistance at the beginning, initiation joint angle of the movement, when the muscle must overcome the inertia of the weight’s mass. After this point the overall resistance alters depending on the angle of the joint. In comparison, hydraulic resistance provides a fixed amount of resistance throughout the range of motion, depending on the speed of the movement. Elastic resistance provides the greatest resistance at the end of the motion, when the elastic element is stretched to the greatest extent.
How to Lose Facial Fat
Most of us want to lose either belly fat or just want lose fat overall, but i have got a lot of requests recently with people wanting how to lose fat in the face. This post will deal with what the realities are and i will even give you a few tips on what you can do.
I want to state from the beginning that spot reduction of fat (which is to lose fat in a specific area) through exercise or dieting or any means, is not possible. If we could target specific areas, fat loss would not be such a problem. Targeting thighs, a spare tire, flabby arms, or in this case a somewhat chubby face is not something we can do, so lets focus on what we can do.
Healthy Drinks for Children
There are plenty of beverages that you can go in for, but not all drinks are healthy. The market is stocked with various kinds of sweet drinks that contain high sugar content. The term sweet drink is a broad concept that encompasses plenty of drinks, like fruit juices, soft drinks and cordials. Sweet drinks do not contain any nutritional value and thus should be avoided. Instead, it is preferable to check out healthy beverage choices for kids. Read further to explore information about child nutrition drinks…
Women who are vegetarian have thought that not consuming meat products is a great way to reduce their fat intake, boost their carbohydrates and improve their overall health. Are they right in this way of thinking? Research is showing us that vegetarians are generally healthier than meat-eaters, that they have a lower incidence of cancer and heart disease and that they have leaner bodies
Ensuring healthy development of the feet during childhood:
The flat feet of little children have to form the proper arches on growing up. This is greatly assisted by going barefoot, which trains the muscles of the foot arches and thus helps to avoid flat feet and other deformities with all their life-long consequences, e.g. damage of the back, the knees and the hips. Obviously, ethnic groups that live without shoes have very healthy feet.
In its natural state, compared to unfortified white rice, brown rice is a better source of several nutrients such as riboflavin, folate, iron and magnesium. It has three times the fiber of white rice.
Brown rice is naturally better for you compared to white rice. However, because some important nutrients are stripped during the process of manufacturing white rice, many companies choose to put back what they took out. Often they overcompensate. Therefore, when you compare a package of fortified white rice to a package of brown rice, the white looks like a better choice. However brown rice has the advantage of having more fiber, which is probably a bigger health benefit than the fortified vitamins, since our diet tends to be more deficient in fiber than in the vitamins white rice is fortified with.
One of the most interesting foods that often appears on the negative calorie food list is pineapple. Among negative calorie foods, pineapple is probably the highest in calories, so how can a fruit with a solid amount of calories be a negative calorie food?
Well in the negative calorie foods diet, there are many different factors in determining the amount of energy it takes to burn various types of negative calorie fruits and vegetables, and total calories is only part of that equation. While pineapple has a lot of calories for a negative calorie food, pineapple is still a fruit, meaning it has far fewer calories than grain, meat, or most other foods of the same size.
