By admin | May 29th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

A key component to manage the heart is a balanced diet plan a key ingredient of such a plan are fruits. All fruits are good for the body in some degree or other. Some fruits are avoided due to the high sugar content but all fruits are good to eat in small quantities. There are various fruits which are good for the body and the heart. However, there are a couple of fruits which are specifically beneficial.

One of these is the very attractive & delicious Pomegranate. Pomegranates are quite good from a heart perspective. Whether you have some heart problem or not, start eating a handful of pomegranate seeds; daily if you can. They have a cleansing effect on the arteries and the veins and helps to clean the blood around the veins and arteries of the heart. In addition, they contain various micro nutrients which are required by the body. So make it a daily habit to eat half a cup of pomegranate seeds. 

The other important fruit to have is watermelon, which also has negative calories. Having a portion of watermelon on a daily basis stops the accumulation of harmful cholesterol in the system. It also assists by lowering weight. Watermelon helps to manage weight and reduce bad cholesterol. It also helps to reduce the risk of getting heart disease. Even if you already have heart disease, it is good to have watermelon in small portions.

However, do not get stuck with just these two fruits. Keep having different types of fruits in rotation. Any fruit in small quantities is beneficial for health.

There are various exercise forms which are available. The best way to lose weight & remain healthy is to select an exercise which is suitable for you. Everyday there is some new form of exercise or dance routine which is launched and is claimed to be the next path breaking routine.

However, there are some guidelines for selecting an exercise. An exercise type has to be selected keeping mind your interests, lifestyle and age. Everyone today seems to be headed towards a gym for weight training, treadmills or intense cardio or sports; but this is incorrect.

The following tips will help you decide the right types of activities for you:

  • If you are below 30, you may opt for a more intense exercise form like cardio, sports, dance or weight training. However, make sure you gradually build up your intensity of exercise. If you are not used to exercising, you can damage yourself.
  • If you are above 25 with a desk job, then brisk walking is ideal. If you want to go to a gym, make sure that you stick to brisk walking or light weights. Anything very intense for first timers above the age of 25 will increase the risk of bone and joint deterioration. The same is applicable to vigorous sports.
  • If you are above 40 and starting to exercise, please ensure that no intense activity is done. Weight training is definitely out of the question. The body’s deterioration really accelerates at this time. Yoga is by far the best. Alternatively, you may take up brisk walking.
  • If you are 50 and above, you should only do Yoga and / or walk.
  • Yoga is the best discipline for all age groups to remain completely fit and healthy. There is enough and more evidence over the ages.

SLEEP & WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS

By admin | May 17th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

With more people trying to enroll for weight loss programs, there is a focus on what to eat. There are various diet plans, fad diets, supplements and food products devoted to weight loss. In addition there is a growing interest in exercise as a means to manage weight. In a lot of cases, none of these seem to be working as effectively as they should.

WHY WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS DO NOT WORK

Do you know why weight loss programs do not work? One of the most important causes of gaining weight or not being able to lose weight is a lack of sound sleep at the right time.

You have to sleep an adequate number of hours each day. One should sleep for seven to eight hours a day. However it is important to note that sleeping at 12.00 am or 1.00 am and getting up after 8.00 am is not going to help much.

The body’s relaxation hormones get into action from evening onward and by around 10.00 pm, the body has been made ready to relax. From 12.00 am onward till around 4.00 am, the body’s rejuvenation hormones are in play which help repair the body and grow new cells. In addition they also help correct imbalances in the system. From around 4 am onward, the active hormones are roused, getting the body ready to get up and be prepared for the day’s activities. These cycles remain the same irrespective of when you sleep or wake up.

If you regularly sleep late, you are causing the body to trigger a stress response causing hormonal imbalances. This is because you are awake and active when the relaxation chemicals are released. You are trying to sleep or still awake, when the rejuvenation hormones need to be present. This prevents them from doing their work. When you are meant to be active, you are sleeping. This imbalance causes weight gain or less reduction of weight as the body is under stress. When the body detects stress, one of the first natural actions is to store energy in the form of fat. This leads to ineffective weight management and causing diabetes and blood pressure in the long run.

Lack of sleep could be due to lifestyle reasons, late night TV and computer activity or due to medical conditions such as insomnia and sleep apnoea. If you are having trouble falling to sleep early, opt for our sleep well program from the stress management section on www.wellzee.com. So sleep well, on time and get a great body as well. 

DIET PLAN TO LOSE WEIGHT WITH BREAKFAST

By admin | May 8th, 2014 | LEAVE A COMMENT

With lifestyles changing across the world, diet has become a major cause for concern & everyone seems to be looking for a diet plan to lose weight.With individuals sleeping late and increasingly getting up late, diet patterns are also changing which adversely impact the body. One casualty of this lifestyle is a healthy breakfast at the correct time.

BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF A DIET PLAN TO LOSE WEIGHT

The right time to eat the first meal of the day is ideally before 8.30 a.m. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day due to various reasons:

  • It has been found that skipping breakfast makes people eat more fattening food and junk food through the rest of the day.
  • Breakfast kick starts the body’s metabolism in the morning and prevents the body from going into starvation mode, which causes stress and eventually, diseases.
  • It is the only meal you can get away with by gorging yourself.
  • Your body starves through the night so energy is required as soon as you wake up.
  • If you do not eat after a long starvation period at night, the body will go into starvation mode and instruct the cells to preserve fat. This will make you crave more high fat foods and also make the body store more fat at every subsequent meal.

This has been corroborated by a study done by the MRC Clinical Centre of Imperial College London. On a test conducted on men and women of around 25 years of age, they found that those who did not have breakfast ate 20% more at lunch and they also had more of junk food like pizzas and chocolates.

So start eating a healthy breakfast preferably before 8.30 a.m. to keep yourself healthy as well as stress free. If you want to learn to eat right, opt for one of our diet plans on     http://www.wellzee.com/diet-programs
