Rhodiola: A Popular Dietary Supplement

Rhodiola is a type of plant that has become increasingly popular as a dietary supplement, used to naturally increase energy levels. It's been used as a folk remedy in many countries for centuries, and has in recent years become available for purchase almost anywhere that supplements, vitamins, and medication are sold. WHAT DOES IT DO? Rhodiola is reputed to improve mood, decrease stress and fatigue, and improve physical and mental performance. It can help remedy insomnia and mild depression. It's also touted to help improve resistance to physical stress from environmental factors (such as cold or disease). Benefits improve with regular usage. DOES IT WORK? Because rhodiola...

The Skinny on Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners have become a popular solution for many people looking to cut calories and sugar from their diets, without sacrificing the flavor of sweet foods and beverages they enjoy. But there's also a lot of suspicion about the health effects of consuming artificial sweeteners, especially over a long-term period. What's the truth?  Are these artificial sweeteners safe? BENEFITS OF ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS The most obvious benefit of artificial sweeteners is that they provide virtually no calories--unlike sugar or most natural sweeteners, which can provide a lot of calories, even in small amounts. Although most artificial sweeteners do technically contain calories, the sweetness level of most...

Eating Too Much or Too Little: Serving Size

Here's a true story that happened to me recently.  I was doing some grocery shopping and decided to treat myself to an individual pizza for "one". I found a nice-looking one in the freezer, and pulled it out to check its nutritional content.  Sure enough, the calories, sodium, and fat were all reasonable, so I tossed it into my basket and went on my way. Of course, when I went to cook it for dinner the next day, I happened to note that the serving size was only 1/2 of the pizza--meaning that the whole pizza had double the calories, sodium, and...

More Fast Food Strategies

We got a lot of great feedback on our first fast food strategies post, so we wanted to do a more in depth look at fast food strategies. If you like a post and want more on the same topic, SHARE it and leave a comment about what you liked about it. Let's face it--very little good ever comes from dining at a fast food restaurant, at least as far as your health is concerned. You're paying for convenience, not good nutrition.  With that said, don't let your waistline pay the price.  Follow these strategies to help lessen the damage from trips...

How Much Protein is Right For You?

It's common knowledge that protein is one of the more essential nutrients you need. It's used by the body to create and/or repair almost all kinds of tissue. It's especially valuable for people who are attempting to build muscle. But how much do you really need? RECOMMENDED DAILY INTAKE Let's say you're not an unusually active person. Maybe you exercise periodically; maybe you don't. How much protein does the average adult need? Well, as a general guideline, the USDA and CDC recommend the average adult woman consumes 46 grams of protein per day, and the average adult male consumes 56 grams of protein each day. However,...

Are You Getting Enough Fluids Daily?

It's not a surprise that the average American doesn't drink enough water each day. With such a wide array of conveniently available flavored beverages to choose from--fruit juices, coffee drinks, sodas, and many more--many people just don't make room for their daily allotment of water, because they've already drank their fill of other things. And some people (like me) just flat-out don't like the taste of it. But getting your daily ration of water is very important to overall health and well-being. Not drinking enough water can put your health at risk! WATER SERVES A NUMBER OF PURPOSES IN YOUR BODY: it helps keep...

Pre and Post Workout Meals

Do you ever get nauseous during a workout? Do you ever get light-headed in the middle of performing an exercise? Ever feel the need to take a heavy-duty nap right after you workout? The problem might be simple—you aren't giving your body enough fuel to last the duration of your workout session. Luckily, the solution is simple—eat something! Eat something before you work out, and eat something afterwards. Get your body properly fueled up prior to exercise, and refuel it again after! It's simpler than you may think, and almost always beneficial. There are many different solutions to cater to people of differing...
