5 Simple Ways to Boost Your Health Fast

November 8, 2009

Want to feel better, boost your energy, and improve your overall health fast? Then follow these 5 simple steps:

1. Get enough sleep. Most people need at least 7 or 8 hours of quality sleep in order to feel good and have optimal health.

2. Drink enough water. Drink at least 60-70 ounces of water per day. You’ll feel much better and your body will be able to cleanse and “detoxify” itself more efficiently.

3. Avoid refined sugars and flours. Avoid processed, refined, “white” sugars and flours at all costs. You’ll have more stable blood sugar, insulin, and energy levels. You’ll stop gaining weight and probably start losing body fat. And you’ll avoid LOTS of serious health problems in the future.

4. Do some light exercise every morning. Do 10 – 30 minutes of light exercise first thing every morning, preferably outdoors in order to get some sunlight exposure. This is great for jump starting your energy for the rest of the day. And just a small amount of exercise can greatly improve your health and fitness levels!

5. Eat quality foods. Don’t worry about “dieting”… just eat plenty of quality foods. These are mainly lean proteins, healthy fats, and good carbohydrates. Focus your meals around meat or other quality protein, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, and raw fruit.

The Ab Circle Pro: Does This Thing Even Work?

November 2, 2009

ab-circle-proIt seems like everywhere I look I see an ad for this “Ab Circle Pro” machine. It’s on my television… especially late at night. It’s in my magazines. It’s on 75% of the websites I visit… or at least its advertisements are. I’ve probably seen the infomercial for this thing 10 times.

It looks cool and possibly even effective for toning the abs. But there’s no way it’s going to help anyone burn a lot of fat all by itself. Maybe I’m totally wrong but I just don’t see how something like this could burn a significant amount of calories. The handful of reviews I’ve read online and offline seem to describe a decent machine with a good idea behind it but bad execution. Apparently it works great for a few weeks and then about half of them begin to fall apart, mainly due to cheap plastic components.

I doubt I’ll ever get around to buying it but I’d love to know: does the Ab Circle Pro really work? With all that advertising there must be thousands if not millions of customers out there. If you’re one of them and you’re reading this, please leave your own Ab Circle review or comments below. Thank you very much!

 

A Really Simple Way to Get Fit Fast

November 2, 2009

Want to get really fit fast? Here’s a very simple, straightforward way to shed extra body fat, tone and strengthen muscles, change your body, and get super fit in a matter of weeks…

1. Eat a super-clean diet. Eat only natural, healthy, unprocessed foods. Mainly meats/fish, eggs, vegetables/fruits, nuts/seeds, beans, and small amounts of natural oil (like coconut oil and olive oil). Avoid nearly all processed foods and limit the amount of starchy carbs you take in (potatoes, rice, wheat, corn, etc.).

2. Do a short, hard workout 3-4 times a week. Do about 30 minutes of intense exercise 3 to 4 times per week, preferably involving both strength training and cardio exercise. Other day, simply walk for 10-20 minutes first thing in the morning.

3. Take the best supplements: whey protein, multivitamins, omega 3 fats (e.g. fish or krill oil), extra vitamin C, and possibly a healthy energy supplement, such as one based around green tea.

There you go: a very simple and effective way to burn off your extra fat and get fit very fast. These things do work so give ’em a try as soon as you can!
