Quickest way to Shed off 10 Pounds

Losing weight is always a big issue especially for women. And since the truth is, we only care to lose weight if there is some special event happening, or some vacation coming up. And when the week is about to come up, we will be shaking heads and rushing gym visits. Actually, that is the wrong way of fixing the problem. There is actually an easier way to shed off 10 pounds without having to spend more time in the gym. You have to keep in mind that losing weight is not a day of starving but a lifestyle that includes proper nutrition, fitness, sleep and hydration. The first thing to consider is the food you will take. 80 percent of the success happens when you know how to control your calorie intake, but be mindful, what’s important is the calorie in. Instead of skipping and crash dieting, aim for 1,200 calories and keep a journal to tally your intake correctly.

Now, all you have to do is pair it with the fitness part of your plan.

  1. Compound exercises. To burn extra pounds off quickly, you have to make sure that you exercise multiple joints at once. Examples of these are exercises that involve your quadriceps, hamstrings and gluteus, all which can be found below the navel. Working them all together burns more energy and tears more fiber so make sure to take calories to repair them.
  1. Pass your threshold. When you do your cardio, push your limit to your max, otherwise known as VO2 max. This will help you use your oxygen correctly. One way to test that is to try and chat with someone during your workout. If you still can talk while exercising or during the training workout, then chances are you still stay too relaxed.

Ultimate Weight-loss Technique

The key to losing weight quickly is to burn as much calories as you can by conditioning not only your body but also your mind. Interval-training workouts and metabolic conditioning are the best way to do it since it pushes you to your limit while combining multi-joint exercises.

How to do it?

Do this workout thrice a week with a day in between to stabilize your mindset. Finish your exercise and have a minute of rest. Have about six to 10 repetitions to maximize your limit. If you still can work even after the 10, make sure you pass by the treadmill or go with calisthenic cardio exercises like jumping jacks or knee tuck jumps.

You may need: A timer, a jump rope, a treadmill, a medicine ball, and a jump rope.

  1. Cardio Blasts. Alternately finish each circuit. Start off with the treadmill at an average of 7 mph, and then follow up with burpees, jump rope or knee tuck jumps for 30 to 60 seconds. Make sure you check your fitness level and try to max it as much as you can.
  2. Medical Ball Slams. Lift the medicine ball overhead and slam it to the ground as hard as you can and make sure you have a feet wide stance to check your positioning. Allow your abdomen and lower thighs to feel the pressure. Repeat this pattern in as little as 30 seconds per circuit. Make as many as possible.

Tips to Relieve High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a fatal disease if not paid attention early on. The undeniable fact that heart disease is the number one killer not only in the United States but worldwide should make us all worry about having this illness. What we can do to avoid being part of the worrying crowd is to prevent it instead of hassling about curing it once it’s present. What we can do is to follow different diets to ensure the changes on our body are met. For those who are already have high blood pressure, especially those who has serious cases, it is suggested to consult the doctor about any medical prescription to avoid any further possible complications. Today, we will share with you simple food and herb combinations that could help you control your striking blood pressure.

Water

No more missed water breaks. Water helps stabilize our bodily fluids and frees arteries from blockages. According to Dr. Julian Whitaker, founder of the Whitaker Wellness Institute in Newport Beach, California, drinking water of about 15 glasses per day could help lower the blood pressure. He also reiterated that almost everything related to lowering the blood pressure mimics increased water intake.

Potassium-rich foods

We often engage in foods that are rich in salt in our daily intake and to balance this out, we have to look for certain minerals that may help lower the blood pressure and continuously normalize it. One of the best solutions to contradict excessive sodium is potassium and consuming it consistently can help you put it under control. Great example of foods rich in potassium are fruits and vegetables. Additionally, it can also provide fiber and help you with good digestions. Sample fruits that are rich in potassium include bananas, dates, honeydews, mangoes, avocados, oranges, papayas and pomegranates. For vegetables, you can have broccoli, potatoes, cucumbers, spinach, parsley, asparagus, cauliflower and many more. However, those who have kidney complications must watch over their consumption as excessive intake may be harmful. IF you have other complications, make sure you visit your GP before engaging with these foods.

Garlic and Onions

Garlic is one of the best pressure reducers and taking fresh garlic can help reduce cholesterol levels too. What is suggested is to chew one clove a day. Make certain you eat it raw and have to be exposed by about ten minutes before consumption. Taking this could help also boost your immune system and regulate the cardiovascular muscles. You may also take onions as they can help with lowering blood pressures too.

Other Vegetables

There are some other vegetables that are proven to help lower the blood pressure such as tomatoes (in fact, it has seven compounds and one of which is gamma-amino butyric acid). Another vegetable that can help you is broccoli with six compounds while the great carrot has eight. Traditionally, celery seems to have made a name when it comes to curing high blood pressure and that four stalks could be sufficient enough to give beneficial effects.

Say ‘ahh’ to let your smartphone check for Parkinson’s disease
Smartphones are designed to be curious. Having already learned about your friendships, your family and the pattern of your daily routine, designers are now interested in your health and fitness.
A new crop of apps and wearable devices continuously measure and analyse vital signs such as movement and heart rate, claiming to count calories, optimise sleep quality and guide diet. While cynics might be tempted to dismiss these products as glorified pedometers for lycra-clad smartphone addicts, new research shows that the hardware inside existing consumer devices can already reliably detect degenerative, life-changing disorders, including Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s currently affects between seven to 10m people worldwide, and there is no cure. The disease can be diagnosed from a number of characteristic symptoms, including muscle tremor, changes in speech and difficulty of movement. However, diagnosis is challenging and usually involves regular visits to the doctor. It is estimated that one in five people with Parkinson’s are never diagnosed. Even if diagnosed, it can be difficult to accurately assess the how efficient treatment is in managing the disease.
