Introduction

According to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), exercise decreases mortality rates. The study looked at 122,007 patients undergoing treadmill cardio training. Moreover, the results find that there is no limit to the benefits of cardiovascular exercise, and, remarkably, not exercising is worse than high blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking, says Dr. Wael Jaber in an interview.

Take Action

With the findings from this groundbreaking study, it is important to recognize that with no exercise comes an increased mortality rate. Therefore, talk to your physician about how much exercise you are cleared to perform. Once cleared by your physician, begin exercising, reaping the endless benefits of cardiovascular exercise.

Introduction

Strength is essential for day to day tasks, and can be gained through resistance training. Not to mention more muscle mass means a faster metabolism as stronger muscles need more calories. Build muscle and get stronger. It seems easy enough, but how much is enough? How many sets? reps? weight? A new study reveals it takes much less than you might think to build strength.

Build Strength in “13 minutes”

How to Develop a Sustainable Workout Routine

According to the same study, patients were broken into three groups. One group would workout for 5 sets, one for 3, and the last for only 1 set. After 8 weeks of resistance training 3 days a week, patients were found to have astonishingly no significant difference in strength across the three groups. The study concludes that one challenging set of a strength workout, three times a week, over 8 weeks is able to build strength equal to much harder workouts. The one set should take approximately only 13 minutes.

Conclusion

A 13 minute workout leaves little room for excuses. Not to mention a measly three times a week leaves plenty of wiggle room when scheduling. It is that easy. Go ahead and start taking steps towards a stronger life!

Diets that include at least one egg a day have a higher chance of lowering one’s risk of cardiovascular disease, according to a study of Chinese participants published in BMJ Journals.

The research found that those who ate eggs on a daily basis had an 18 percent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, commonly referred to as heart disease. There were also other benefits of the daily egg habit. Participants who ate up to one egg daily had a 26 percent lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke, a 28 percent lower risk of dying from this type of stroke, and a 12 percent reduced risk of contracting ischemic heart disease, typically diagnosed in those who show the early signs of gridlocked blood flow to the brain.

Researchers told CNN that is the study is “by far the most powerful project to detect such an effect” between eggs and heart disease.

Conventional health wisdom used to dictate that too many eggs were bad for one’s health, as they contain a high amount of cholesterol, in addition to high-quality protein and other positive nutritional components. But now, there seems to be some evidence that one way to stop a disease that is responsible for 31 percent of all global death’s a year is to eat more of them.

“Overall, I would say that consuming egg as part of a healthy diet does not increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, and we now have another carefully done study to support that,” Carolina Richard, an assistant professor of agricultural life and environmental sciences at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, told CNN.



Introduction

When on a diet, it is easy to get caught up in what we are eating and how much. New research, however, finds that when you eat has a remarkable impact on your metabolism and weight. According to Satchin Panda, a professor at the Salk Institute, metabolic health improves when eating solely between an 8-10 hour window. By doing so, you eat alongside your natural circadian rhythm, and thereby optimize your body’s metabolism and hormones for food intake.

Avoid Late Night Snacking

When eating within the 8-10 hour window, you must avoid both late night snacking and late night meals of any kind. If you take your first bite of the morning at 8am, for instance, you should take your last bite of the entire day at around 6pm. Otherwise, your organs’ natural clock will get out of sync with each other, leading to hormone imbalance and weight gain according to Professor Panda’s research.

Losing weight is easy when you eat alongside your body’s natural rhythm!

Putting the Research into Practice

The age-old saying becomes essential: eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a beggar. By eating a large breakfast and lunch, you can easily eat a modest dinner early in the evening. Once adjusted, your hunger satisfies within the 8-10 hour window and carries over afterwards until you sleep. By eating through this ideal time frame, you will put yourself on the right track towards a healthier, happier lifestyle.



Introduction

Testosterone is the elixir of youth. Generally, men with optimal testosterone levels have less body fat, more muscle mass, stronger bones, healthier heart, and more libido than those with low levels of testosterone (≤250 ng/dl). Moreover, according to a recent study conducted in Seattle, Washington, men with low levels of testosterone tend to have a smaller lifespan. In fact, patients’ lifespan increased when taking testosterone treatment, thereby increasing their testosterone levels and their life.

What to do

Go to your primary care physician to get tested for your testosterone levels. If you experience fatigue, moodiness, difficulty sleeping at night, muscle/joint pain, increased fat around your mid-section, and/or a reduced sex drive, you may have low levels of testosterone. Start feeling young again! Take hormone treatment in order to boost your testosterone and live your best life.

Introduction: AMPK

Dying of old age may be a thing of the past after incredible research on the effects of the “anti-aging” enzyme adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase, also known as AMPK, in your body. The truth is, dying of old age is simply a mass failure of essential cellular processes and should not be seen as an inevitable result of growing older. According to a Technical Review on AMPK,  the quantity of this “anti-aging” enzyme was found to  have a direct correlation to increasing bodily functions such as glucose uptake, fat burning, and new mitochondria while decreasing fat and cholesterol synthesis, fat storage, and glucose synthesis.

Why do I need AMPK?

As we age, AMPK is found to remarkably diminish from our organs, severely affecting our bodily functions such as metabolism, and energy production. In fact, according to the same technical review, all sources of issues with an organ system trace back to an insufficient amount of AMPK activity. Cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes have all been linked to a lack of AMPK in the body. By boosting your AMPK, you are thereby not only increasing your energy, but increasing the longevity of your organ systems.

Boosting AMP

All research within the technical review points towards exercise and implementing a healthier diet to be the best ways to naturally boost AMPK within your body. Therefore, in order to reap the benefits of this magical anti-aging enzyme, including more energy, faster metabolism, and a remarkably stronger immune system, all you have to do is lean towards an active, healthier lifestyle.

If you are spending your time counting every single calorie you put into your body, you are wasting your time. According to a study from Stanford University, losing weight is about what you eat, not how much you eat.

Essentially, by cutting back on added sugars, refined grains, and highly processed food along with prioritizing vegetables and whole foods rather than portions, subjects were found to lose a significant amount of weight. By focusing on healthier eating habits, subjects saved themselves the hassle of having to count every single one of those pesky calories and still lose weight.

The Psychology of Processed Food
It’s about what you eat, not how much.

The study was led by Christopher D. Garner, the director of nutrition studies at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, and found that regardless of genetics and major change to physical activity, weight loss is easily accessible with the prescribed diet above. In fact, participants were never given a number of calories to aim for. Instead, by focusing on healthier eating, participants found their appetite was satisfied more easily, and did not even have to think about overeating.

Having to think about each and every single thing you put into your body is stressful, tedious, and according to Dr. Garner, absolutely unnecessary. As long as you focus on eating vegetables and whole foods rather than highly processed foods, refined grains, and added sugars,  weight loss is soon to follow.
