The beneficial health effects of olive oil are due to both its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and its high content of antioxidative substances. Studies have shown that olive oil offers protection against heart disease by controlling LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels while raising HDL (the "good" cholesterol) levels. (1-3) No other naturally produced oil has as large an amount of monounsaturated as olive oil -mainly oleic acid.
Olive oil is very well tolerated by the stomach. In fact, olive oil's protective function has a beneficial effect on ulcers and gastritis. Olive oil activates the secretion of bile and pancreatic hormones much more naturally than prescribed drugs. Consequently, it lowers the incidence of gallstone formation. Here is a link : Olive why is it beneficial.
4 Types of olive oil
Generally, olive oil is extracted by pressing or crushing olives. Olive oil comes in different varieties, depending on the amount of processing involved. Varieties include:
|Extra virgin - considered the best, least processed, comprising the oil from the first pressing of the olives. |
Virgin - from the second pressing.
Pure - undergoes some processing, such as filtering and refining.
Extra light - undergoes considerable processing and only retains a very mild olive flavor.
When buying olive oil you will want to obtain a high quality EXTRA VIRGIN oil. The oil that comes from the first "pressing" of the olive, is extracted without using heat (a cold press) or chemicals, and has no "off" flavors is awarded "extra virgin" status. The less the olive oil is handled, the closer to its natural state, the better the oil. If the olive oil meets all the criteria, it can be designated as "extra virgin".www.austinxfit.com

Over 60% of the fish eaten in the United States is farm-raised. What are some of the things that you should know about man-raised salmon?
have seven times the levels of PCB’s as wild salmon
have 30 times the number of sea lice
are fed chemicals to give them color
are fed pellets of chicken feces, corn meal, soy, genetically modified canola oil and other fish containing concentrations of toxins
are administered antibiotics at higher levels than any other livestock
have less omega 3’s due to lack of wild diet
are crowed into small areas inhibiting movement, and causing disease
Wild salmon may only eat a bite or two of other fish. Mostly they feed on krill, giving them their rich red color. Krill are mostly toxin-free. Man-raised fish are fed pellets containing high concentrations of fish. It is this concentration of fish that increases PCB levels as concentrating the fish, concentrates toxins, mercury etc.

1)Think about how awful you will feel if you don’t!!!!
Once you start exercising, you will experience the release of endorphins in your body which give you a natural high! How do you want to feel today? Yukky or energized?This endorphin release is the body form of a pill that natural, Not man made! ITS FREE:)))
Visualize how you! Are going to look once you reach your goal of losing that 10- 20 pds or getting rock hard abs.!!! Picture yourself running for 20 minutes and imagine how good you will feel. If you can only do 10 pushups and you want to do 15, start visualizing yourself doing 15 pushups. Picture yourself doing them and count each one in your mind. Visualization is used by many top athletes to get them past performance plateaus.
3)Make exercise a exciting and fun experiencing!!!!
Find an activity that is fun to do. Ex. Walking,Hiking, biking.. Sign up for a 5K race you will have a certain date that you have to be ready to run or walk the race. This will give you a reason to train for something.Even a bike club Make it FUN!!!
4)Workout with a Friend or Trainer!!!!
Find a workout buddy that can help you stay accountable. If not hire professional so you can proceed with discipline,motivation and accountability towards your goal!
5)Think long term health benefits!!!!
As I mentioned in my previous point, physical appearance is a huge motivating factor, but your health should be an even bigger one. The thing with health, is that we do not “see” it. As we becoming more and more concerned with being healthy and living a better quality of life as they get older. Use this to your advantage as well to motivate yourself to exercise. The list of health benefits that exercising provides you with is just enormous. By thinking about maintaining a high quality of life for years to come, you are thinking long term and thus you can find the proper amount of motivation to stay active even during times that you feel like giving up. We all want to be healthy, and going through health concerns brings about much stress to our life as well as to those that we love. ........When I hear of fathers or grandparents that are changing their lifestyle and becoming more active to be around to see their children grow up, I am so proud of them. That’s one of the strongest motivation you could ever have to turn your life around with exercise!!!
Hope you got motivated:)))

Adopting a more active lifestyle. Studies have shown that moderate exercise at least 5
times a week is essential for losing and maintaining weight. The National Weight Loss
Registry found that participants who were able to expend 2500 calories a week
(equivalent to ~ 60 minutes/day walking) were the most successful at losing and
maintaining long term weight loss. Increasing physical activity through daily living
choices has also been shown to offer a sustainable energy expenditure behavior.

weight loss. This also helps in maintaining an exercise program. Group meetings and
group walking have been initiated for this reason.
