This is What Happens To Your Body When you Walk 5, 30 and 60 Minutes
▶ Subscribe to the channel - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Do you know walking is one of the world's best medicine? It's one of the most overlooked activities that's extremely beneficial to your health. Today, there are so many means of transportation that have taken the place of walking — they allow us to take less and less steps each day, and that's not good. It's critical for us to walk more — those overlooked steps are essential for our overall health and wellness. Look, you should know that the body creates chemical changes the longer you walk — once you realize these benefits, you'll be inspired to walk more. The good thing is, there are a whole lot of opportunities for us to walk every single day — you can decide to walk to the grocery store instead of drive or walk to lunch instead of taking the wheels. Right now we're going to explore how walking for 5, 30 or even 60 minutes can transform your health and make you feel great. Sounds good? Let's get to it! What happens when you walk for: 1 to 5 Minutes The moment you step out of the door to take your first steps, your body will release energy-producing chemicals to fire you up for the walk. When you start walking, your heart rate will increase from 70 to 100 beats per minute — this beneficial change warms the muscles and boosts blood flow. You'll also find that stiffness reduces, and this is all thanks to the lubricating fluid that your joints produce— this will help you move more easily. At this point, your body starts to burn up to five calories per minute — fats and carbohydrates will be used as fuel to burn energy. 6 to 10 Minutes At this time period, your heartbeat goes all the way from 100 to 140 beats per minute. And you'll start burning up to six calories per minute. Right now, your blood pressure will spike up a little but still gets countered by the release of chemicals that expand blood vessels. This then supplies more blood and oxygen to working muscles. Look, As you walk more, your body, heart and cardiovascular system will have what it takes to maintain resiliency, and your blood pressure lowers in the long run. 11 to 20 Minutes Right now your body temperature increases and that's a good thing. Why? Well, it's primarily because you begin to sweat and the blood vessels near the skin expand to release heat. As your walk becomes more intense, you'll burn up to seven calories per minute and breathe deeper than before. At this point, two hormones, epinephrine and glucagon rise to fuel your muscles. For the most part, epinephrine is an adrenaline hormone that provides relief to asthma attacks and allergic reactions — it's actually sold in drug stores. The good news is, you can get it for free after a 20-minute walk! 21 to 45 Minutes This is the point where your body releases more tension and relaxes further. This typically happens as a result of the release of endorphins in your brain. The good thing is, you'll get to burn more fat at this stage and insulin levels drop significantly. This is great for people looking shed excess weight — so be sure to keep up if you're one of them! 45 to 60 Minutes At this point, you're exceeding all previous benefits for longer — boosting blood flow, burning more calories and oxygenating your body. It's also good to know that you're also fortifying your heart, losing unhealthy fat, strengthening your immune system, increasing Vitamin D levels (since you're in the sun) and feeling great. Moreover, studies have shown that walking is just as effective as antidepressants — it eases stress and anxiety. Who wouldn't want to experience these amazing benefits? The bottom line: Try as much as possible to walk more often — you can even turn it into a daily routine. Your body will feel great at the end of the day, and that's what matters. Happy walking!

What Really Happens When You Eat an Apple Every Day For a Month?
When it comes to munching down on fruit every day, many individuals choose items like bananas, plums, peaches, oranges, and pears which are all great choices. Except they don’t come with as many benefits as apples do. Choosing to eat an apple a day will help you lower your risk for conditions like anemia, diabetes, gallstones, liver disorders, heart conditions, and stomach illnesses. Eating an apple a day can also reduce body weakness, lower your risk of certain cancers, and help rheumatism symptoms. Plus, there are over 7,500 varieties of apples out there, ensuring that there will always be one that you will have a liking for. The Daily Health Benefits of Apples You will be able to experience the following health benefits. • It Helps Your Digestion: due to the amount of fibre in apples, your bowel movements become regular which prevents things like constipation and stomach conditions. • Increases Nutrient Uptake: in addition to stimulating the metabolism, apples balance out bacteria in the large intestine. When the large intestine is properly balanced, nutrient uptake is improved which in turn helps eliminate toxins as the body can efficiently perform due to having enough nutrition. • Reduces Cavities and Cleanses the Mouth: not only does eating apples every day help clean out your mouth; it can reduce how often you form cavities. The reason for this is that when you eat an apple, you produce saliva which kills off bacteria and the fibre from the flesh of the apple cleanses between the teeth. • Prevents Heart Conditions: apples have a high antioxidant value to them (found in the skin), so they actually reduce the oxidation of fats and reduces triglycerides that are found in your blood vessels. This, in turn, reduces how much inflammation is found in the blood vessels and thereby reduces how much inflammation is in the cardiovascular system altogether. • Reduces Carbohydrate Uptake: the polyphenols in apples have been linked to reducing how much and how quickly the human body “uptakes” or absorbs carbohydrates. Due to this, blood sugar levels remain stable for longer, and the body is stimulated to release more insulin. Apples also help speed up the removal of sugar from our bloodstream. Other than the above, apples can aid in weight loss, improve vision, and lower cholesterol levels. The great thing about apples is that they can be consumed in a variety of ways because they can be frozen, mashed, dried, baked, and minced.   ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

What happens to our body if we go Vegan for 1 month
Let's face it; we all have that burning desire to indulge in delicious things every now and then. Of course, I'm talking about the milk, bacon, cream, chicken, grilled cheese and more. But what if you decide to give up on these super tasty goodies? More like quitting the sweets and making a big switch to the plant-based lifestyle? Ever considered doing this? If so, you're not alone! Today many people have taken the big step to try out the vegan diet for their health and a few other reasons. Of course, going the vegan is also great for animals and our planet as a whole — pretty sure you get the point. Well, if you're actually considering going vegan, I'll recommend you get a better idea what it feels like to make the big switch. Of course, there are quite a few compelling benefits to plant-based diets, but you should know that the diet can be a bit difficult to follow. In essence, it's not necessarily easy to switch and stick to the vegan way. Still interested? If so, you're awesome! In this video, I'm going to let you in on what to expect in your first 31 days without meat, dairy and every delicious thing in between. Note: it's going to based on my personal experience. Let's dive in! Week 1 During the first week of your transition, there's a good chance of trying figure out how to eat properly. In other words, your diet will be all over the place. Personally, I wasn't eating enough fruits and veggies, and sometimes I end filling up with high-fat foods say nuts and more. Yes, this is one of the most common mistakes newbies are likely to make. So take note! As the week went by (more like towards the end), I started feeling more tired than usual. Following this change, I decided to decrease fats and increase my portion sizes; well, to be honest, the change didn't really affect how tired I felt. Week 2 Moving forward, the body weakness followed me into the start of the second week. But the good news is, I started regaining strength as time flew — more like towards the end of the week. And this leads to yet another uncomfortable side effect you're likely to experience — gas and bloating. Trust me, mine was super annoying. But the good thing is, these symptoms are a normal part of the transition. In essence, it's just a way of your body adapting to all the fiber you're consuming. As you probably expected, the bloating got better after a few days and by the end of the second week, pretty much everything was gone! I also think it's great to let you in on how I fell in love with my veggies. In fact, it feels like my taste buds changed as I turned vegan. Right now, I can't seem to get enough of roasted pumpkin, mushrooms, broccoli, potato, red peppers and more. Who knows? You might feel the same way too! Week 3 Here's the thing; my third week of veganism was awesome. First off, the bloating was completely gone and I no longer felt weak and tired. What's more, getting out of bed was no longer a chore — it became easier than I expected. Week 4 Yes, as I said before, my third week was awesome but I trust me, the fourth was super! I literally fell in love with my skin — the glow was amazing. The change in my diet had a great impact on my skin; my complexion became clearer than it has been in years. So basically those with skin issues are likely to love their skin after going vegan; that's just how it is! And finally, I actually lost some weight but of course, the results weren't immediate. The big idea here is that plant-based options are lower in calories than meat, grilled cheese, chicken, bacon and more. Pretty sure you get the point! All in all, losing weight as a vegan depends on what and how much you eat. The big secret is to stick with balanced and healthy choices — not going to be easy, but trust me, it's totally worth it! So what do you think? Do you feel veganism is for you? There's no doubt that a full-time vegan lifestyle can be a bit difficult to adapt, but based on all the benefits, I think it's worth giving it a shot.

Today, there are a whole lot of reasons to quit smoking and the good news is, it's never too late to make the decision! As we already know, smoking is incredibly bad for your health — it's more like a way drawing yourself closer and closer to the grave! But the good news is, you can quit today and start getting your life back. Yes, the benefits of quitting smoking are almost instant — you're likely to see great improvements in as little as 20 minutes!

Just try to figure out a plan to handle those cravings, especially in the first few weeks — do this and you'll be well on your way to a new super healthy life. Here are some of the amazing benefits that come along with your decision to quit cigarettes. After 20 minutes to 1 hour As mentioned earlier, smokers are likely to experience impressive improvements in their health just minutes after quitting the habit. For the most part, after 20 minutes, your blood pressure starts to drop back to normal and overall circulation begins to improve. After 12 hours At this point, you should be aware that the cigarettes are chock full of harmful toxins including carbon monoxide. Of course, this gas is present in cigarette smoke and it turns out that excessive inhalation can be incredibly harmful to the body. What's more, carbon monoxide in cigarettes inhibits oxygen from getting into the lungs and blood, and prolonged inhalation within a short time can trigger suffocation. But the good news is, after just 12 hours without a cigarette, the body gets rid of the excess carbon monoxide and improve oxygen levels. After 24 hours Worried about suffering a heart attack as a result of smoking? If yes, you'll be glad to know that the risk decreases just after one day of quitting. Essentially, smoking lowers good cholesterol which eventually increases the risk of developing coronary heart disease. What's more, smoking raises blood pressure and even increase the risk of stroke. But as mentioned earlier, these risks can be alleviated in as little as one day after quitting smoking. Of course, within a short time, the body's oxygen levels increases making it easier for you to exercise and perform other heart-healthy habits. After 48 hours Smokers are also at risk of having damaged nerve endings; more like the ones responsible for senses of smell and taste. But the good news is, after just two days of quitting, the nerve endings may heal and of course, the person will begin to notice a heightened sense of both smell and taste. After 72 hours Made it to the third day? Well, at this point, the nicotine levels in the body are already depleted. Of course, this is a good thing but you should brace yourself for nicotine withdrawal. In essence, after three days of quitting, there's a high chance of experiencing irritability, moodiness, terrible headaches and even cravings. This is just the way your body readjusts to the change. After 1 month At this point, your lung function starts to improve — you may notice less coughing and less shortness of breath. What's more, you're likely to notice a renewed strength to perform cardiovascular activities including running and jumping. After 9 months After nine months of quitting smoking, your lungs will start getting its life back. For the most part, the cilia would have recovered from the harmful effects of cigarette smoke and you'll notice a significant decrease in the frequency of lung infections. For those who might not know, the cilia are delicate hair-like structures inside the lungs that help fight infections. After 1 to 5 years Right now, your risk of developing coronary heart disease will decrease by half and after five years, blood vessels and arteries will begin to widen. It's good to know that this widening indicates that blood is less likely to clot, and that's great. Of course, this improvement lowers the risk of stroke significantly and it continues to reduce as the body heals more and more. All in all, quitting smoking is totally worth it — it's a way of bringing your body back to life. Now it's up to you take the decision and live the super healthy life you've always wanted. Good luck! ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

5 ways to gain healthy weight for skinny people
Gaining weight as a skinny person is not easy. It is frustrating to eat a lot but still not gain weight. One thing that skinny people do not know is that they have a fast metabolism which makes it hard for them to gain weight. A fast metabolism means that your body burns all the calories you eat. As a skinny person trying to gain weight, you have to eat a lot more than your metabolism can handle. Naturally, creating a caloric surplus in your body will make you gain weight. Probably you are skinny due to lack of knowledge of what it takes to gain weight. Below are top five tips that will help you gain weight: 5. Eat more food The leading trick to gain weight is to consume more calories than your body can burn. The mistake that most people do is to go by their feelings. Your metabolism could be much faster than you think. You need to know how much calories your body needs for you to gain weight. Keep track of everything you eat to know how much calories you consume every day. You might overestimate your calorie intake if you go with your feelings. In the first week, you will have difficulties eating all the required calories for you to gain weight. After maybe two weeks, your stomach will stretch and start getting hungry more often. 4. Track your progress Weigh yourself every week to check how you are progressing. Malnourished people will gain weight quickly in the first week due to increased bowel content and weight from the extra water as well. Continue eating the same if you gain weight; if you do not gain weight, you will have to keep adding more calories to your daily intake every week until you gain weight. You should note that the food that makes you gain the first 10kg will not make you gain the next 10kg. A skinny person with less muscle mass burns fewer calories than one with a bigger muscle mass. Thus, a person with no muscles will require fewer calories to gain weight as opposed to a more masculine person. 3. Eat more protein Protein is necessary for muscle building and recovery. The following are the best protein sources for gaining weight: whole eggs, chicken breast, tuna, cheese, and steaks. For you to build your body muscles, you will require at least 1g of proteins per 1lb of body-weight per day. However, you should have in mind that some people will not gain weight or muscles without gaining fat as well. 2. Eat more meals You have been eating little food for years. Thus your stomach is small. If you are required to take at least 1500 calories a day for you to gain weight, it will be easier if you take 300 calories in 5 meals than having 500 calories in 3 meals. Create yourself a bigger eating window. With eight sleeping hours, you are left with 16 hours to eat. Make a schedule of how you will have the five meals in those 16 hours. 1. Training Lifting weights is good for people trying to gain weight since it triggers the body to build muscle mass. If you do not train, the excess calories that do not burn will be stored as fat around your waistline. Your goal is to be muscular and not chubby. Therefore you will need to train. Remember, the more you train, the more calories you will burn and therefore the more calories you will require creating a caloric surplus.

Just focus on drinking a glass or two after your workout session — you'll definitely see results! 2. Protein Smoothies — Stick with Homemade Looking for a sure, quick and highly nutritious way to gain weight? If so, we'll recommend give protein smoothies a shot. And oh, we know you might be considering store-bought protein shakes, but trust us, making yours will be much better. The thing is, those commercial versions are typically loaded with sugar and also lack nutrients. Remember — we're looking to gain weight and muscle the healthy way; no diversions! The good news? There are a whole lot of super tasty variations you can try — just do your homework, mix and start drinking! 3. Red Meats Yes, red meats also happen to be on our list — in fact, they're one of the best muscle-building foods right now.

Well, red meats are perfect for you; they contain the right amount of fat and calories! In fact, they're way better than lean meats in this regard. Don't hesitate to eat up! 4. Nuts and Nut Butters Nuts and nut butter — both are just perfect for your weight gain journey. First off, nuts are chock full of calories. In fact, eating just two handfuls a day as a snack can quickly add hundreds of calories. And if you're considering almonds, you'll be happy to hear that just a small handful contain more than 7 grams of protein and 18 grams of healthy fats. What more could you ask for? As for nut butter, you can choose to get some (preferably 100% nut butter) and add to whatever snack that tickles your fancy. 5. Rice Last but definitely not the least is rice — just a single serving can give you a high amount of carbs and calories. It's also good to know that rice is super easy to consume and digest. But be careful though, some types of rice are high in arsenic; a chemical element that can cause metal toxicity. And oh, once you prepare your rice, don't forget to add some protein and healthy fats to the mix — you'll be incredibly glad you did! And that's it! Five highly nutritious foods that can increase your chances of buffing up, gaining weight and looking great.

6 Effects Dopamine Has On The Body
Ever heard of dopamine? There's a good chance of hearing people talk about this chemical. It's typically known as the "feel good" neurotransmitter primarily because of its link to pleasure and reward responses. It's the chemical behind that's behind our dreams and deepest secrets. So what is Dopamine? Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that's synthesized in some regions of the brain from L-Dopa. Essentially, we produce this chemical when we consume foods that contain amino acids including tyrosine and phenylalanine. It's important to note that some symptoms are likely to occur when a person's levels become too high or low. High dopamine levels can lead to schizophrenia and cocaine addiction while low levels are associated with Parkinson's disease. But the big question is, "what are the effects of dopamine?" Join us as we explore just about everything you need to know! • Dopamine Boosts the Anticipation of Pleasure First off, whenever we come across a rewarding stimulus, the brain releases more dopamine and this pushes us to seek out the fun or pleasurable activity. For the most part, pleasurable experiences or moments like sex, games, eating tasty foods and even drugs can stimulate the release of dopamine. It's however important to note that dopamine doesn't mediate pleasure; instead, it enhances the expectation of pleasure in humans. The bottom line; you enjoy most of these pleasurable activities because of dopamine. • Dopamine Improves Memory and Learning The effect of dopamine in the brain helps with memory and learning. Essentially, dopamine is crucial for long-term memory storage and retrieval. What's more, this neurotransmitter reminds you of important events especially those that have motivational significance. It's also good to point out that Dopamine plays a big role in working memory; that's the capacity to use information from short-term memory to guide your actions. • Dopamine Increases Your Drive Also known as the "motivation molecule," dopamine gives us the motivational as well as the internal drive to do things. As we know, we usually do things because we find them to be worth it or rewarding. What you should know is that dopamine is the chemical that's responsible for your reward-seeking behavior — your drive is as a result of high dopamine levels. On the flip side, people with low levels of this neurotransmitter are less likely to work for things and care less about the rewards that come afterward. • Dopamine Controls Movement It's also good to point out that dopamine plays an essential role in movement. How? Well, the basal ganglia (largest and most important sources of dopamine in the brain) is the biggest factor that comes into play here — it actually controls movement. For the most part, the basal ganglia require high levels of dopamine to function optimally — this is just how it works. If limited amounts of dopamine reach the basal ganglia, several different voluntary motions may become uncoordinated — this is especially common in Parkinson's disease. • Dopamine Increase Wakefulness As humans, we're more likely to stay awake when we have higher levels of dopamine in the brain — this is precisely why you're always active during the day. On the flip side, dopamine levels fall during the night, and melatonin takes over; as you probably guessed, this chemical makes you sleepy! • Dopamine Processes Pain Besides its role in increasing your urge for exciting experiences, dopamine is also released when you come across unfavorable or sad events — more like when you have an epic argument with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Finally, you should be aware that dopamine has a link to addiction. Essentially, excessive intake of drugs can decrease dopaminergic function and eventually increase addiction to drugs. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

4 Pressure Spots You Can Massage For Instant Stress and Anxiety Relief
When it comes to dealing with stress and anxiety, many individuals will use options like alcohol, hot baths, and escapism to find some relief from the mental bearing that stress and anxiety put onto our well-being. However, not many individuals will use actual physical options like massages and acupressure as a form of stress relief, which is unfortunate because these types of solutions provide long-term benefits unlike media consumption and lounging around. With this said, here are some ways that you can use massage as a technique for eliminating stress from the physical body. 1. Massage the two muscles at the back of the neck where your spine meets the base of your skull. This area is called the “heavenly pillar” and can be massaged to offer relief from insomnia and exhaustion which are a result of stress being held in this area. To massage this area, bring your neck forward, use your fingers to find the two muscles that run along either side of your spine, and follow the muscles up till you hit the base of the skull. Massage this point throughout the day to combat stress. 2. The shoulder well is a great stimulation point to put pressure on as most individuals will hold a lot of tension and stress across the shoulders. The shoulder well is located halfway between the shoulder and the base of the neck. It is a tendon that can be very delicate if you have a lot of stress built up there, so make sure you massage it gently, to begin with. The great thing about massaging this point is it will relieve tension across the entire body and help restore your energy levels. 3. The central treasury is considered a meridian point and is located right underneath where the arm meets the chest area. If you place your fingers at the top of the shoulder where it meets the collarbone and then travel downward towards your armpit, it is located halfway between the collarbone area and the armpit. For this particular spot, you want to apply pressure on the point with your index finger and either massage it gently or hold the pressure. This will increase blood circulation, help you breathe better, and stabilize your emotions. 4. The Nei Guan point is located about three fingers length down from the wrist on your inner forearm. Applying pressure to this point will help alleviate any nausea you may be experiencing as well as anxiety. You simply apply a moderate amount of pressure using your thumb and massage in a circular motion. If you go to apply pressure and find that it hurts a lot, lessen how much pressure you are applying until you find the right balance between pain and a sensation that feels good. You want to gradually massage each of these points until you no longer feel any pain or tightness. Some of these points will benefit from stationary pressure while other points can actually be massaged. Some individuals may require a higher degree of pressure depending on how sensitive their deep tissues are. It is always advisable to level your breathing and stretch while massaging these points as this will further the release of tension. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

Here’s What Happens When You Replace Your Drinks With Water for One Month
When it comes to consuming beverages, a lot of us are completely spoiled with luxury teas, coffees, sodas, and sports drinks, but as we all know, these types of drinks are not the healthiest for us. Water, on the other hand, is a liquid that we know is good for our health, yet we do not drink it nearly as often as other liquids. This is primarily because water can be bland while a lot of other options are a lot tastier. However, if you can stomach it, water is incredibly beneficial to your body as it keeps you hydrated; it flushes out toxins, reduces ailment risks, and increases your metabolic rate. Here is what happens if you chose to drink nothing but water for a month. 1. You will experience cognitive benefits! Your brain cells require more energy to work than other cells in your body and these cells get this energy from water. When you are well hydrated, you will think better and focus easier. 2. You will remove waste build-up from your body. Not only does water aid your cells in getting proper nutrition but it also helps flush out the body by keeping the kidney in working order. If you cannot flush out the toxins, you will have these build up, causing rapid onset of health problems. 3. You stabilize your kidney function. There is a link between having decreased kidney function and a lower metabolic rate. When the kidney cannot function properly, it cannot get rid of toxins from your body thereby making the liver take over the process. If the liver is releasing the toxins, it isn’t metabolizing stored fats which leads to obesity and weight gain. 4. Your hair and skin will thank you. Your skin and hair cells require water to function because it keeps them hydrated. Proper hydration will leave your hair feeling stronger and thicker and your skin will feel smooth and fresh. When you don’t drink enough water, your skin will get tight and flaky which can lead to wrinkles. 5. You will lose weight and lower your risk for certain diseases. After you have consumed nothing but water (as your main beverage) for nine days, you will end up losing the same number of calories as if you had jogged for eight kilometers a day. This is why you end up losing weight when you substitute in just water. You also lower your risk for hypertension, bowel cancer, and bladder conditions as your organs and function better. To put this in perspective, five glasses of water a day lowers your risk of a heart attack by forty percent. Beyond this, you will end up saving a lot of money as drinking water from your home tap is free and if you would prefer to buy water, it’s a lot cheaper than other kinds of beverages. The only thing to keep in mind is that you can over hydrate and you will need to get a reusable water bottle just simply because the environment will thank you. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

Here is What Happens To Your Body When You Are Protein Deficient
Protein is the building block of your muscles, it boosts your metabolism, and it has huge fat-burning potential. Beyond this, it helps fuel what your tissues and cells need to be healthy as protein helps maintain every part of the body, from your digestive enzymes to your immune system and your skin and hair. When you have a protein deficiency, it leads to cataracts, heart problems, muscle atrophy, fatigue, and poor concentration. Other symptoms include moodiness, muscle and joint pain, blood sugar changes, slow wound healing, trouble losing weight, low energy levels, and a sluggish metabolism. Here is what happens to your body when you are protein deficient. 1. You will feel more anxious and extremely moody. The amino acids from protein are the building blocks for the neurotransmitters in your brain. These neurotransmitters help control your mood. When you do not have enough protein, your brain will not be able to synthesize hormones like serotonin and dopamine, causing a massive drop off in positive feelings like excitement and positivity. 2. You will not sleep well. If you are consuming too many carbohydrates during the day and not enough protein, then you will have unstable blood sugars which will decrease serotonin production and cause a spike in insulin production. All of this will lead to poor sleep and sometimes even insomnia. 3. You may feel gassy but will be unable to go to the washroom. Your digestive and metabolic functions require you to have an amino acid intake. If you are not getting enough protein, your enzyme production and muscle contractions will suffer because of the lack of amino acids. 4. You will have something called ‘brain fog’. If you are having trouble learning, find that you have a lack of motivation, or have poor concentration, it could be because your brain is having a hard time synthesizing neurotransmitters. If you do not have enough dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and epinephrine, you will have a lower performance level. 5. You will be slow to heal wounds. Having the right amount of protein is important for the absorption of calcium which is needed for bone metabolism. Amino acids from the protein will treat muscle loss and increase how quickly you can heal from bone fractures and breaks. 6. Your workouts will suffer greatly. Low protein levels will result in muscle atrophy (wasting), fatigue and sometimes even fat gain because you are unable to sustain the amount of energy your body needs to get you through the workout and then support the repair process. Although every individual is unique in how much protein is required for peak bodily performance, generally you want to hit around the 50 grams of protein mark (for both men and women). If you are unable to work out how much you need per your body weight (0.36 grams for every pound you weigh) then try to eat 20-30 percent of your calories from protein alone. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

How to Detox Your Organs So You Never Feel Sick or Tired
Although our bodies are designed to eliminate the toxins that we breathe in from our environments, sometimes our bodies cannot eliminate them fast enough which is what leads us to develop chronic illnesses. Unfortunately, we ingest toxins from what we eat, from our environment, and from our homes and when we cannot remove them in an efficient manner; we end up with symptoms like weight gain, mental fog, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and chronic food intolerance. With this said, there are organs that you can actually detox yourself which will help you eliminate feeling sick, tired, and fatigued. 1. Your large and small intestines. The intestines are what carry the nutrients from one place in the body to the next. The small intestine is responsible for absorbing nutrients and water while the large intestine is responsible for pushing food through the rest of the body. You detox by eating flax seeds, drinking green tea, or eating leafy vegetables like kale, broccoli, and spinach. 2. Your kidneys. Your kidneys remove toxins from the blood which means they must be healthy if you are to live. In order to detox this organ, eat a lot of fruits, specifically berries. You may also want to add in pumpkin, turmeric, and ginger. 3. Your pancreas. The pancreas is an important part of the digestion and endocrine systems as it is what is responsible for making hormones like insulin, glucagon, and polypeptides. If the pancreas isn’t working correctly, you can quickly become ill as insulin levels won’t be regulated. In order to detox this organ, use hot baths and showers, a lot of Vitamin B from leafy green vegetables and consume pineapples and lemons. 4. Your liver and gallbladder. Not only does your liver help with purifying what goes into your body, for instance, alcohol and medicines, but it helps break down serious conditions like blood clots and it aids in the digestion of the food you consume. The bile that the liver creates, which is used by the gallbladder, is what helps your stomach digest and break down fats. If the fats that you consume are not broken down then you can end up with high cholesterol levels. With this said, you can detox both of these by using turmeric, dandelion tea, garlic, beets, milk thistle, and burdock root. For the liver specifically, choose to eat a lot of green leafy vegetables, quinoa, apples, grapefruit, and walnuts. 5. Your lymphatic system. This is a network system that is part of your entire circulatory system, which is comprised of lymphatic vessels that carry lymph fluid throughout the body. It drains from your tissues into your bloodstream. It essentially is considered a “pipe” network that absorbs and transports the removal of interstitial fluid and fats. To ensure that this system is healthy, you need to be active in terms of exercise. It is highly recommended that you cleanse your body out once a month, but if you are eating healthy and moving all the time, you are generally going to have a cleaner body. It is very important that if you are consuming foods for a specific type of detox that these foods are washed properly and consumed in the right dosages. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

5 Reasons Why You Need To Be Doing Planks Every Day!
When it comes to fitness exercises that can be done without any weights, the most common one that comes to mind is planks. This is because it can be done practically anywhere, require little to no time investment, and do not require anything beyond your own body weight. In addition to this, they are one of the most effective exercises available for your core, as they boost fitness levels in a myriad of ways. Beyond engaging multiple muscle groups, planks are known to reduce your chance for injury and can even improve your posture! Here are five reasons why you need to be doing planks every single day as part of your workout routine. 1. They Effectively Improve Your Core’s Performance and Overall Definition: because planks engage four major muscle groups, each muscle group will become strengthened the more often you plank. Each muscle group serves a purpose and contributes to the overall definition of the abdominal region. You will engage your transverse abdominis which allows you to lift more, you will enhance your rectus abdominis which improves jumping and gives you that six pack look, and you will work out your obliques which allow you to bend and twist. Beyond this, you will work out your glutes, which will provide you with an extremely well-shaped butt and a strong back. 2. You Will Reduce Back and Spinal Injuries: When you do planks regularly, not only do you help rid yourself of back pain, but you build muscle without putting any pressure on your hips and spine. The more you do, the stronger your back muscles will get and the stronger they are, the less likely you are to injure them. 3. You Can Increase/Boost Your Metabolism: If you have ever done a plank, you understand how insanely difficult it is to hold that position for 1-2 minutes. This is because you are engaging four major muscle groups while trying to maintain and hold up your body. When you challenge your body like this in short bursts, it increases your metabolism which helps you burn more energy when sedentary. When you consistently boost your metabolism to a higher rate, eventually you will burn at that rate even while sleeping. 4. Your Posture Will Improve Dramatically: Planking causes you to straighten out your back and makes you more aware of proper (and straight) form. This enhances your awareness of proper posture. When you have good posture, your bones and joints will be aligned which helps reduce pain. Plus, when you have correct posture, you look healthier, more confident, and fitter. 5. You Will Gain Mental Benefits: The four muscle groups that planks work out contribute to a lot of stress in the body.

5 Things That Happen To Your Body If You Don’t Drink Enough Water
We all understand the importance of drinking enough water in theory, but in actuality, a lot of individuals still struggle with knowing how much to drink and whether they are getting enough or not. When you don’t drink enough water and your body goes without, whether you are in a dehydration state or not, you end up causing damage to your body. This is especially true if you are an avid workout enthusiast and aren’t getting enough water before and after your workouts. Here are 5 things that happen to your body when you don’t get enough H2O. 1. You end up losing water and not fat. This particularly pertains to those who are working out and don’t drink water while they are exercising. When your body is lacking water, it can burn the fat cells properly, so your body ends up shedding the water and not the fat. 2. Toxins Remain Inside Your Body. When you sweat, your body is able to get rid of toxins that have built up over time. If you don’t have enough water, you won’t be able to sweat very well, which means that toxins will stay inside your body. This goes the same for flushing out toxins that are being held within your organs. 3. Muscle Pain. You will end up experiencing muscle pain for longer because your body won’t be able to properly heal up the muscle injury. Your muscles need protein, carbohydrates, and water to properly heal up. 4. You Put More Pressure on Your Heart. When you don’t get enough water, your blood will actually get thicker and your blood vessels will constrict. This causes your heart to work harder because it has to push thicker blood through narrowed vessels. This can cause you to experience high blood pressure, shortness of breath, and even tachycardia. 5. You Will Actually Eat More. It is very easy to confuse thirst for hunger. Whenever you feel hungry, drink a glass or two of water first and see how it sits. If you are still hungry afterwards, get a snack. Other than the above, if you aren’t getting enough water your concentration will decrease and you will feel more fatigued. You will swell up as your body tries to retain the little water that it has and your workout effectiveness will decrease as your body won’t be able to burn fat or grow muscle as easily. Finally, if you don’t have enough water while working out, you will contribute to skin aging as the flow of blood that is enriched with oxygen will increase collagen production. You need water to help the blood circulate properly. So, if you don’t think you are getting enough water, grab a water bottle or a dedicated water glass and make it into a habit. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

How To Trick Your Body To Be A Morning Person
Whether you want to seize more of the day, enjoy the early morning sunshine or prepare for your body for a new you, becoming a morning person can be difficult if you don’t implement the right tricks. The main thing you have to keep in mind is that you will need to gradually adjust your body to the new time which will include re-adjusting your internal clock and changing up your psychological perspective. Here are some easy ways to trick your body into becoming a morning person. 1. Make sure you get enough relaxation during the night. If you fall asleep and have a fitful sleep, you aren’t going to want to get up when that 6:30 am alarm clock goes blaring off. Instead, invest in some extremely cozy pyjamas and drink and eat something that soothes you. In addition to this, get a bedtime routine going so that your body knows that when you hit the sheets, it is sleep time. 2. Although you may get creeped out at first, convince yourself to keep the blinds open during the night. This will ensure that you get a heaping dose of sunshine in the morning when you wake up. This makes it easier to get started with the day rather than hitting the snooze button. The light helps your biological clock get reset and aligned to when the sun rises. 3. When you get out of bed, don’t get back in and instead do a fifteen to twenty minute workout. It doesn’t have to be insanely intense, but it has to be enough to get your blood pumping. You could jog on the spot, do jumping jacks or do a few laps of the stairs. Regardless of what you do, exercise helps your body get energized and it removes unwanted toxins from the body. Better yet, add some music to that workout to get you pumped up. 4. Consume protein in the morning. Don’t grab a sugary breakfast and certainly don’t skip out on it completely. Instead, take the time to eat a breakfast that is filled with protein and healthy fats. Not only will this give you the energy you need to start the day but it gives you something to look forward to once you get out of bed. 5. Use a smart alarm to prevent yourself from hitting that snooze button. It’s very easy to wake up, feel groggy and immediately think about another five to ten minutes of sleep. This is where you get into trouble because hitting that snooze button is oh so easy. Instead use a smart alarm that requires you to solve a puzzle or math equation in order to turn it off. This requires you to sit up, think, and get yourself out of your groggy state. Finally, don’t sweat bed time. Sometimes we get all riled up about going to bed at the same time every night and this can cause stress, which is exactly what you don’t want when you are trying to relax before bed. Try to aim to go to bed around the same time but mostly listen to your body. Go to sleep when you feel tired and you will eventually wake up and doze off at the same time every day. Other than this, avoid the urge to nap during the day and establish a routine that rewards you. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

7 Surprising Green Banana Benefits You Probably Didn’t Know
Typically when you go grocery shopping and you hit the produce section with bananas, you see everyone go for the ones that are fully yellow. A fully yellow banana that does not have its brown spots yet, is ripe and still relatively non-sweet. Most people tend to skip over the unripened or green bananas, but did you know that there are actually a ton of benefits with consuming green bananas? Keep watching to find out how you could benefit from eating these unripened and delicious fruits. • They Will Aid in Digestion: unripened bananas have a high amount of starch and fibre, which can help prevent any type of bloating and constipation during digestion. However, they should be eaten in a moderate amount. • They Will Regulate Blood Pressure: bananas are high in potassium which is extremely important for lowering the stress levels of your arteries and blood vessels. Eating green bananas can lower the tension caused by higher blood pressure levels. • They Improve Nutrient Absorption: green bananas have short-chain fatty acids which help improve how well your body absorbs nutrients. This, in turn, will help improve the overall health of your colon. • They Boost Your Metabolism: unripened bananas contain a large amount of essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to operate efficiently. This includes complex carbohydrates which your body needs for energy. They can also help speed up how quickly your body burns calories. • They Are High in B6: green bananas contain almost forty percent of the recommended daily value of B6! This critical vitamin helps form hemoglobin, aids in blood sugar control, and plays a major role in hundreds of reactions in your body. • They Aid Your Kidneys: a raw banana can help maintain the balance of electrolytes within your body. This will help keep your kidney functioning properly and minimize kidney issues. • They Are Great for Diabetics: green bananas are a great option for diabetics who still want to consume bananas without their sugar content. Fully yellow bananas and ones with brown spots have a higher sugar content, so these should be avoided. Although eating unripened bananas does seem unappealing, you can always boil them, fry them, or put them into shakes to make them easier to consume. They are really no different unripe when they are ripe, just that they may be a bit more bitter and definitely a lot less sweet. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

I Stopped Smoking and After 1 Month Here's What Happened
Let's face it; smoking is bad. Besides impacting your health, the habit takes its toll on your appearance, clothes and of course, your wallet! As a new ex-smoker, I can say for sure that smoking affects your body in more ways than one, but the good news is, it's never too late to quit. Of course, after many years of smoking, I decided to take the big step towards cessation. Although it hasn't been easy, I can say that I've been seeing the fruits of my labor — it's really amazing! So far so good, I've stayed away from cigarettes for one month — of course, I started experiencing the incredible health benefits right from day one up until this moment. In this video, I'm going to let you in on how my health changed during the first month of giving up on the habit. And of course, I hope it motivates you to quit smoking once and for all! Here's What Happened After I Stopped Smoking For One Month For starters, you're likely to experience the amazing benefits of quitting in as little 20 minutes — that's just how fast your body heals! Fast forward to one month, I started noticing great improvements in my respiratory health. Yes, I always experienced nasty coughs and shortness of breath in the past. Even cases of sinus pain and congestion was a norm. But the good news is, I've been recovering from these symptoms ever since I quit — one month down the road, I know for sure that I feel better now. Essentially, the moment you stop inhaling cigarette smoke, cilia in the lungs comes back to life. In essence, the delicate lung tissues begin to regrow and function like they ought to. For the most part, cilia help to move particulates (in this case, toxins from cigarette smoke) we breathe in back out of the lungs. But unfortunately, smoking causes them to be clogged with tar. Of course, as mentioned earlier, the delicate lung tissues begin to function again after quitting smoking. And for those who might not know, shortness of breath is a smoker's disease that impairs your ability to breathe. It actually took a toll on me back then, but I see amazing improvements today — just one month after quitting, I now breathe freely and easily. That's not all — I also found it easy to perform a range of cardiovascular activities including running and jumping. What's more, my dull sense of smell also improved — it was really amazing to smell subtle scents that have evaded me for years. In addition to the health benefits, I also found that my confidence began to grow as time went by. Of course, this new sense of empowerment has the potential to bring new positive relationships that can change other areas of your life. All in all, the journey hasn't been easy, but I can boldly say the change is totally worth it! It's all about settling in and allowing the smoke-free days pile up. With time, you'll start enjoying the fruits of your labor! Best part? The benefits continue on long after your first month; in essence, after years, you can be sure of being as healthy as can be. Good luck! ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

4 Steps to Checking For Breast Cancer Symptoms
Trying to figure out how to detect breast cancer early? Well, besides regular visits to the doctor, you can also give yourself to self-examination. The thing is, the simple act of examining your breast can increase your chances of detecting cancer early, and that's huge. As we know, early-stage cancer is more likely to respond to treatment compared to one that has grown deeply in surrounding tissues. Note: you may not be able to find all types of cancer through Breast self-exam, but it's still crucial to take the step and see how it works for you. Let's get started! Step 1: For starters, stand in front of the mirror and of course, take a good look at your breasts. Be sure to keep your shoulders straight and place your arms on your hips. Things to look for: • Normal breasts; usual size, shape, and color • Evenly shaped breasts that are free of visible distortion or swelling Signs that you need to see a doctor: • An inverted nipple or one that has changed position • Bulging or puckering of the skin • Soreness, redness, swelling or rash. Step 2: At this point, you'll want to raise your arms and of course, look for the same changes Step 3: While looking in the mirror, check for any signs of fluid (milky, watery, yellowish or even blood) coming out of either one or both of the nipples Step 4: Now, lie down on your back and use your right hand to feel your left breast and of course, your left hand to feel your right breast. Using the first few finger pads of your hand, touch your breasts firmly (be gentle) while keeping the fingers flat and together. While using a circular motion (this should be about the size of a quarter), cover the whole breast right from top to bottom, and side to side. In essence, start from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage. Just stick to a pattern to be sure that you cover the entire breast. Now, start at the nipple and continue to move in larger and larger circles until you touch the outer edge of your breast. What's more, you can choose to move your fingers up and down vertically, in rows. Do you prefer the up-and-down approach? If yes, you won't be wrong to feel just about every tissue right from the front to the back of your breasts. For the most part; • Use light pressure for the skin and tissue just beneath • Use medium pressure to feel the tissue in the middle of your breast • Then use firm pressure for the deep tissue in the back. At this point, you should be able to feel down to your rib cage. And that's it! Now you can check for breast cancer and of course, increase your chances of kicking it out of your life for good.

5 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism Into High Gear
Whether you are looking to ramp up your fat loss after working out or are looking to just maintain your weight while still eating the foods you enjoy, it all comes down to your metabolism and how fast it is. For some individuals, they can eat as much as they want and not gain any excess weight, while others will eat a couple pieces of pizza and gain a few pounds. This is because those in the latter group haven’t made their bodies into efficient fat-burning machines. Keep watching to find out five ways you can kick your metabolism into high gear so that you can start losing the weight, or at least maintain it while still enjoying your cake. 1. Make Sure You Are Building Muscle: you can keep your metabolism running high by building up the amount of muscle that you have. Since muscle is heavier and denser than fat, it will burn more calories and therefore more fat. If you lose all of your muscle while trying to lose weight, your body will slow down. 2. Get Up and Be Active As Much as Possible: if you like to watch a lot of television, make sure you are getting up every 15 to 20 minutes and doing a quick exercise. The idea here is to frequently be active as much as possible so that you can burn more calories and keep your metabolism up. Being inactive for long periods of time will make your body sluggish. 3. Do Interval Training: when you exercise in short, intense bursts, you are able to improve your fitness levels drastically. Not only will this burn more fat, but it will burn more calories and increase both your muscle strength and cardiovascular systems. 4. Make Sure to Exercise Your Mind: exercising and keeping your mental health is critically important and one of the least talked about methods for boosting your metabolism. If you are able to manage your stress levels effectively, you can ensure that your hormones stay in check. Use stress management methods (journaling, coloring, meditation, and yoga) to reduce your stress levels and stay happy. 5. Do Not Skip Meals or Previous Hours of Sleep: when you go for long periods of time between meals this can actually make weight loss more difficult because it changes your body chemistry. If you end up binge eating because you went all day without any meals, this is what causes over-eating and weight gain. Other than this, do not lose out on sleep. Chronic sleep deprivation causes your body to slow down and perform at lower than optimum levels. Other than this, make sure you are eating a diet that is packed full of nutrients and is high enough in calories that your body stays fuelled throughout the day. One of the mistakes that people make is eating too few calories, which causes the body to switch into the fat-storage mode or otherwise known as starvation mode. This is definitely something you do not want if you are trying to lose fat and keep your energy levels up. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

These 5 Methods Will Help You Sleep Like a Baby
When it comes to getting a good nights sleep, we all want to sleep like a baby and wake up feeling completely refreshed and ready to start the day. Unfortunately, for most of us, this is a rarity because we either toss and turn, have insomnia, or have an overactive brain that just doesn’t want to switch off. With this said, there are a couple of things that you can do to help you sleep like a baby, but it may require you to do a few things that you haven’t done before. Check out the following five methods and see if you sleep better afterwards! 1. Try Earthing Yourself: this is an extremely easy way to make yourself feel connected to the earth and all you have to do is take your bare feet and touch them to the ground, whether that be in sand, on soil, or in the grass. By doing this, you allow free-electrons to pass from you into the earth which will ground you. This will help you sleep better, it will improve your mood, and it will give you more energy. 2. Turn off Electronics One Hour Before Bed: unfortunately, the bright lights from our electronic devices mess up the body’s production of melatonin process, which is the hormone that regulates our sleep. By turning off the electronics an hour or two before bed, you help your body slow down and produce more melatonin, making it easier for you to fall and stay asleep. 3. Stretch Out Before Bed: the physical and mental stresses of the day build up in our bodies as tension. When you stretch out, you help your body release some of this tension which can help you feel less irritable and help you sleep better. It is always a good idea to stretch out 5-10 minutes before bed. 4. Adapt Your Sleep Schedule to the Seasons: your body has a natural internal clock as well as a seasonal rhythm, get in tune with this seasonal rhythm so that you know how much sleep your body needs during the seasons. Generally speaking, most individuals will need to go to bed earlier in the winter months and sleep longer and sleep less in the summer months. 5. Go to Bed Early and Get That Exercise In: when your sleep schedule is not regular, your body will become stressed because it cannot repair itself properly. According to Chinese medicine, your gallbladder works the hardest between the hours of 11pm and 1am whereas, your liver works the hardest between 1-3am. So to make the most out of your body’s healing processes, get to bed before 11pm. Combine this earlier bed time with a lot of exercise throughout the day. If you physically exhaust yourself, you’re going to want to sleep. Beyond this, make sure that you have a cool enough bedroom, have a dark room, and have blocked out all external noise. By doing all of the above, or combining a few methods that work, you should be able to sleep like a baby in no time. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

Bulking When we talk of bulking, it simply means that you're purposely eating a caloric surplus diet to gain weight and build muscle. So yes, it's more like a plan where you get to eat whatever you like; more like oats, sweet potatoes, brown rice and the likes. But hey, it's not recommended to go overboard here — in other words, don't just go about eating like you got no control. Remember, the primary goal here is to build muscle and not otherwise. So in a nutshell, bulking should focus on building muscle whilst keeping fat gain to a minimum. Cutting On the flip side, the ultimate goal of cutting is to shed fat, lose weight or get lean — it's pretty easy to comprehend. But of course, you shouldn't cut up to the point where you lose all the muscle you've worked so hard to build. When cutting, you'll have to eat a caloric deficit diet; in essence, you'll want to drop all complex carbs out of your diet and just stick to protein and fat. So yes, as you probably guessed, cutting requires more mental toughness than bulking. The Big Question: Bulking or Cutting — Which Should You Start With? Well, the answer to this question depends on what you're looking to achieve. Today, most people start out with bulking before switching to cutting (and alternating between the two if need be). So yes, you could choose to build a solid base of muscle before shedding excess fat to reveal the fruits of your labor. But what if you're already overweight? Well, if you're in this position, I'll recommend you lose fat and get your weight under control. So yes, you'll want to start with cutting before returning to the bulking phase. To sum it up, it's all up to you to decide how you want to get the body of your dreams. The good news? Bulking and cutting are equal in their own special way; so you're sure to see impressive results either way. And oh, don't forget to add workouts and supplements to the mix — super helpful.

Your Body Has a Second Brain – Here is How It Impacts Your Health
The human abdomen or gut is known as the body’s second brain, mainly because it contains more neurotransmitters than your actual brain. Unfortunately, a variety of foods and chemicals, when consumed can wreak havoc on the bacteria that lives within our gut, which is why it is so important to balance out our gut health. If we do not, not only will we have digestive issues but the body’s ability to absorb minerals, regular hormones, produce vitamins, eliminate toxins, and provide an immune response will be impaired. Here is how your second brain impacts your entire well-being. 1. The bacteria in your gut will dramatically impact your weight. Not only does it influence how your body absorbs nutrients and creates hormones, but it helps with ensuring you feel full and it balances out your blood sugar levels. You can reach an optimal weight just by taking care of your gut health. 2. Having a healthy gut will ensure that you have enough short-chain fatty acids which are important for reducing temporary inflammation, maintaining bacterial balance, and strengthening your gut barrier. Beyond this, SCFAs are responsible for creating energy, so if your workouts are suffering, make sure to get some prebiotic fibre in. 3. A healthy gut will boost the function of your immune system. A lot of individuals will complain about getting respiratory sickness after intense bouts of training. This is because the short-term effects of intense exercise on the immune system is directly supported by your gut. About 80% of your immune system cells live in the gut, so if it is unbalanced, you are going to experience interruptions due to sickness. 4. When it comes to nutrition, most individuals believe that if they are consuming nutrient dense foods than achieving weight loss and fitness levels should come naturally. However, this is not the case if your body is unable to absorb the nutrients you are consuming. How your gut is balanced will determine whether your body is able to use the nutrients, break them down, and absorb them. 5. Unfortunately, your body can take quite a beating from exercise. This can translate into negative effects on your joints and bones. You can mitigate a portion of this damage by cooling down and warming up appropriately, but you can also tackle temporary bouts of inflammation that would otherwise leave you achy. Finally, good and bad gut bacteria will have an influence on your hormones. If you have a healthy balance of good bacteria, you will have increased mental focus, clarity, and less brain fog. Several ways you can help maintain, boost, and support a healthy gut is through eating whole foods that are high in plant-based fibres, consuming prebiotics, and limiting your exposure to antibiotics. Of course, you should also reduce the amount of stress you have and make sure you are exercising regularly. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

I ate nothing for 7 days and here's exactly what happened to my body
Fasting — there's a good chance of hearing a lot about it; probably from friends, colleagues or even your family. The point here is that fasting is pretty popular right now. But still, some people may be finding it hard to wrap their head around extended longer duration fasting. Well, as you probably guessed, this type of fasting demands that you avoid eating for a couple days — 3, 5, 7 or even 21 days. Now, as a newbie, we don't recommend going 21 days straight — pretty sure you get the point. Moving forward, in this video, I'm going to shed more light on exactly what will happen to your body if you choose to go on a 7-day fast. Trust me, the extended fast is not as bad as you think it to be. In essence, you don't need to worry about losing muscle mass, slowing down your metabolism and the likes. In a nutshell, a longer-term fast won't take a toll on your health — you can put your mind at ease. But of course, I'll recommend you try fasting for shorter intervals before making the big switch to a 7-day long fast. For the most part, you won't be wrong to start with a two-day fast and see how your body reacts to the change. And oh, jumping straight into the 7-day fast won't harm you in any way; you would neither breakdown nor drop dead. What you should know is that your body is way stronger than you think. For the most part, it's great at conserving energy even when a happy meal is nowhere in sight. I mean, how do you think Ghandi, even at 74, survived a 21-day fast? Yes, the body is super amazing! Even if you cast your mind back to ancient times, you'll find that our distant ancestors didn't always get food on demand. It wasn't like today where you can choose to eat whenever you want to. So what's the point? Well — it's pretty simple, contrary to what you think, most people can actually fast for 5, 7 or even 10 days without dropping dead. Still in doubt? Well, according to 1973 study from a University in Scotland, an incredibly obese 27 years old man fasted for an astonishing 382 days! Good thing is, his efforts paid off, as he was able to go from weighing 456 pounds to 180 pounds! What's more, researchers monitored the man for five years and found that he was able to maintain his new-found weight. So he basically lost the weight and kept it off — what could be better? As you probably guessed, such studies indicate that fasting doesn't affect your metabolism in any way. So yes, it won't shut down or be all over the place if you decide not to eat for a couple days. Now that we've cleared up the myths, let's take a look at what you should expect following a 7-day fast. Right off the bat, after 6 hours of starting the fast, your body will finish digesting food and convert glycogen to glucose. Of course, your body will eventually use glucose for energy — that's how you'll get to survive your time without food. It's however important to note that glucose may get depleted after 6 hours thus increasing your susceptibility to food cravings and sudden hunger pangs. What's more, you should look forward to being a little hangry in the initial phase of your fast. And oh, these hunger pangs may come along with nausea, dizziness, and weakness. But there's a good news — these feelings should subside after the first 2 to 3 days of your fast. That said, your chances of making it through the fast are higher if you can overcome the first three days of hunger. In essence, you'll no longer feel super hungry and your energy levels will dramatically increase. It's also good to know that during the first 3 days, your body will begin to gradually burn off glycogen reserves in your muscles and liver. Once this happens, you can look forward to losing a significant amount of water weight and your body will start using fat for energy. Of course, at this point, your body is already used to process — it's now up to you to keep going till you achieve your 7-day goal. Good luck! *Please consult with your doctor before partaking in any advanced diets such as this one. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

Light weights vs. Heavy weights for MUSCLE Growth
What's your perception of muscle growth? Today, there's a good chance of hearing people say that lifting heavy weights for a low number of reps builds muscle while lifting lighter weights for higher reps tones them. Well, this is not entirely true — there's actually more than meets the eye here. First off, people typically use the term "muscle tone" to describe the firmness of a muscle, but what you should know is that your muscle has the same tone regardless of whether you're in shape or not. So what's the point? Well, it's pretty simple — your muscle tone doesn't change with exercise. Essentially, the appearance of the muscle is centered on how much fat is covering it and the elasticity of the skin. That said, there's a slim chance of toning your muscle if you're focused on lifting light weights for high reps. In fact, there's not much of a difference between using heavyweight and lightweight for your workout sessions. The difference actually lies in the intensity as well as one's ability to lift the weight. For the most part, weightlifting challenges the muscle tissues to provide support to the physical load being placed on it and at the same time, generate just enough energy to support intense muscle contraction. It's important to note that these adaptations tend to be fast when you're just starting out, but of course, they begin to slow until they finally come to a halt. This typically happens when your muscle can meet the demands of your workout. Once you reach this stage, the surest way to allow for further adaptation is to increase the demand. The big idea is that your body adapts to exercise and still needs to be constantly challenged in order to see continuous muscle growth and improved levels of fitness. For the most part, the effectiveness of the weight you're looking to lift (heavy or light) is actually dependent on the present condition of your muscle. With this in mind, lightweight will give you impressive muscle changes in the beginning, but its effectiveness is likely to decrease with time. So, yes, you'll eventually have to increase the intensity of your exercises — this is the surest way to stay on the right track to muscle growth!

How Much Coffee is Too Much?
Let's face it; we all love coffee. In fact, most of us barely feel human without gulping a cup or two. Of course, there's also a good chance of drinking up to five cups a day — that's just how it is! Amazingly, caffeine energy inducing effects can turn out to be the difference between surviving and thriving in a day. Now, there's no doubt that there are quite a few benefits associated with drinking coffee. Besides improving physical and mental performance, caffeine also reduces the risk of severe cardiovascular disease, liver disease, and even neurological disorders. But what happens when you consume too much? OR better still, how much coffee is too much? Yes, the very first thing you should know is that caffeine is beneficial to the health, but that's only if you consume in moderate amounts. In essence, drinking too much coffee may end up doing you more harm than good. In this video, we're going to let you in on how to know if you're consuming too much coffee coupled with signs that scream "cut back right now!" Let's get started! As mentioned earlier, caffeine's stimulatory effects can increase your chances of achieving more during the day. In other words, drinking in moderate amounts can boost your energy levels and increase mental awareness. It's however important to note that caffeine tolerance varies from person to person. In other words, a friend of yours may be able to drink up to 10 cups of coffee each day without any side effects; but the case might not be the same for you. So yes, the key here is to find balance and stick with it. Moving forward, the average person should aim to consume below 400 to 500mg of caffeine each day. Such consumption is considered safe and of course free of unwanted side effects like insomnia, heart palpitations, irritability, restlessness, and dizziness. One of the signs that you may be consuming too much coffee is if you find that you can't get through the day without a cup or two. Or if you usually experience extreme withdrawal symptoms when you try to cut back. What's more, it's important to note that caffeine's stimulatory effect is short-lived. In essence, there's a good chance of experiencing fatigue and energy slumps a few hours after consumption. Moreover, high levels of caffeine can affect those who are sensitive, especially when they're trying to get some sleep at night. In essence, such individuals may find it hard to sleep or even end up being restless throughout the night. So what's the point here? Well, it's pretty simple — just figure out how to set a clear limit for yourself and of course, let it be according to your personal level of tolerance. As you probably guessed, doing this will prevent you from drinking too much, too often. On a final note, we'll recommend you stick to drinking up to five cups of coffee each day — that's 400 to 500mg a day. So yes, if you've been consuming well above this amount, you won't be wrong to start cutting back today. The bottom line; less is more — stay healthy! ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

What happens when you drink alcohol on an empty stomach?
Most people drink alcohol, it’s a way to enjoy their time and just step away from some of the day to day challenges we encounter in life. But this also has to be quite problematic. Some people say that if you drink alcohol on an empty stomach, things will be even worse. While that is true, not everyone knows why that even happens. That’s the reason why we are here to help, so everyone can figure out the unique reason behind those stomach issues if you drink alcohol without eating. Keep in mind that any liquid leads to gastric emptying. What this does is the stomach will process the liquid a lot faster and then remove it. Alcohol will stay in your stomach until 15% of the entire alcohol is broken down in the liver. Some very small amounts of alcohol will not be a problem, but if you drink a lot of alcohol you will remove this process. As a result, your system will have to deal with some really high levels of intoxication. The other 85% of the alcohol is broken down in the liver. The alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream and then sent to the brain. That’s where the feeling of hangover comes from. One thing to keep in mind is that when you drink alcohol on the empty stomach, the blood vessels are widening a lot faster and the normal absorption rate is not as good. While this does bring in a sense of warmth, it also comes with its own set of problems. First, you will notice that this thing comes with a temporary dehydration. You will urinate most of the liquids and your body will end up having problems gaining the necessary liquid amount. There are some other effects like anxiety, depression, addiction, kidney and liver damage. These are all side effects that are presented in the regular alcohol consumption. But the more you drink on a less stomach, the harder it will be for your body to process all of that. Basically, if you drink alcohol on an empty stomach, you are generating some very high levels of alcohol concentration and intoxication. If you want to drink alcohol, then you can do that, but you will need to consume foods that are full of protein, fat and dense carbs. These will slow down the alcohol absorption and thus you will be safe. Keep in mind that if you do drink alcohol, you will also suppress appetite, so that’s why you need to eat before drinking. In case you don’t eat and drink alcohol aplenty, then you can deal with problems. You won’t feel the need to eat anymore, instead you will want to drink more and more. This leads to a lot of health problems and then you can encounter some of the major side effects listed above. What you want to do is to make sure that you at least eat something before you drink alcohol. And, if possible, you should avoid drinking a lot of alcohol. The less you drink, the better for your body! ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

Here are a few methods you can use to help you get rid of your acne scars and spots within a seventy-two hour period. 1. Make sure that you are drinking water throughout the day as this will help prevent any further breakouts.

If your skin is well hydrated, then you are less likely to clog up any further pores. 2. Try applying ice to the area, especially if the acne is underneath the skin. By applying ice to the infected area, you reduce the inflammation and pain, and promote faster healing. 3. Try using aloe vera cream or gel on any of your acne scabs. This also helps bring down inflammation and promotes healing. Aloe vera also has antimicrobial properties which will help keep the area clean from further infection. 4. Take a look at what you are eating and boost your vitamin levels. The best way to heal acne marks and scars is by eating goods that are rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, zinc, and collagen (egg whites). When you have the right nutrients being absorbed into the body, you make it easier for your body to heal itself. 5. Use topical remedies like tea tree oil and coco butter. Tea tree oil is known to prevent acne bacteria from spreading across the face and coco butter can help remove acne scars by smoothing out and moisturizing the skin. Another option would be mixing honey with cinnamon to make a paste which can be applied to the affected area and left on for about an hour. Both honey and cinnamon have remedial properties, so these can help get rid of acne scars. You can do the same thing with a crushed up aspirin tablet and honey. Essentially, in so long as you are washing your face, providing your skin with the nutrients it needs, and taking care of the inflammation and infection, you will be able to eliminate and heal acne scars and spots within a seventy-two hour time fame. You just need to be diligent with the healing option you choose! ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

5 Japanese Methods For Staying Healthy and Fit
The Japanese are well known for their slim physiques, living the longest, and being the healthiest group of people on the planet. Not only do they have one of the longest life expectancies in the world, they have the lowest incidences of mortality related to cardiovascular conditions. This is because the Japanese not only eat smartly, but they lead active lifestyles that promote macro management and a diverse food palette. If you want to be healthy like a Japanese individual, here are five methods you can use. 1. Stop Consuming Liquids During Your Meals. According to Japanese culture, drinking water or other liquids during your meals is bad for your digestion because it cools down the body. Instead, you want the food to create warmth in your body as this ensures that the food gets burned off. Plus, liquids tend to neutralize acid in the stomach which results in poor digestion. 2. Use Japanese Water Therapy. This essentially states that water helps to boost your digestive system and clean out the stomach. It is recommended that you drink water upon waking after sleep in a lukewarm state and do not consume any food within forty-five minutes of drinking the water. Four to six glasses of 200 millilitres is the recommended dosage. 3. Balance Out Your Macro Nutrients. The Japanese are much better at controlling their macronutrient intakes despite not tracking the same way as North Americans do. Instead, they make sure they are getting enough carbohydrates, fat, and protein by eating satiating vegetables and fruits with fibrous grains like rice. 4. Start Your Meal With Soups and Swap in Rice. By filling up on soups, you are less likely to overeat on items that have a lot of calories, fats, and sugars in them. By swapping in rice instead of bread, not only are you going to feel more full but rice promotes healthy digestion whereas bread can cause a lot of bloating and gas problems. 5. Practice Hara Hachi Bunme. This is a little-known habit that states that you should only eat until you are about eighty percent full. This way, you give your brain some time to catch up to your stomach. The reason this helps you lose weight and keep weight off is that it takes your brain about twenty minutes to register that it is full. By only eating until you are eighty percent full, you end up being less likely to overeat. In addition to this, you should eat your food slowly to help with the process. Other than the above, the Japanese promote active lifestyles that keep them fit as they move around regularly. Although they don’t necessarily hit the gym all the time, they do make sure that they move about daily by walking and using public transportation to get around. You may also want to drink tea instead of sugar-filled beverages, choose fermented foods, and snack smartly on small portions. If you can incorporate the above into your daily routines, not only will you see some weight come off, but you will find that you sleep better and are overall happier and healthier. ▶ Subscribe to the channel! - https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r Royalty free Pictures from www.pixabay.com www.pexels.com Royalty Free Music from Audio Library – No Copyright Music

5 Bad Habits that Raise Estrogen levels in Men
Lower testosterone levels and higher estrogen levels? Yes, we get it! And no, you're not alone! Of course, in the world of men's health, basically every one of us know the importance of the hormone, testosterone. Testosterone levels, for the most part, affect everything from the male s drive to muscle mass to bone density to heart health and more. But hey, you should be aware that things may not always stay perfect. In essence, there are certain factors (mostly your lifestyle and habits) that can affect your hormonal levels. Of course, at this point, we're talking about the situation where you experience a decline in testosterone levels and an unfortunate rise in estrogen levels. Yes, as most of us already know, such changes in hormonal levels only spell trouble — dysfunction, increased body fat, loss of muscle mass, depression just to name a few. So what now? Well, now that you're aware of the troubles that come with hormonal imbalance in men, it's only normal to learn more about the habits that are likely to make things go south. Of course, you wouldn't want to have (gynecomastia) or erectile dysfunction when you can actually do something about it, right? With this in mind, here are 5 habits you won't be wrong to change or avoid altogether. 1. Eating too Much Carbohydrate What can you say about your eating habits? Do you always find yourself eating foods high in refined carbohydrates (bread, cereal, white rice and more)? If yes, you certainly won't be wrong to figure out how you can cut down on these foods or stop altogether. Why? Well, it's only because a diet high in refined carbs triggers insulin resistance and weight gain. And of course, increased body fat leads to the production of more estrogen! So yes, the solution here is pretty simple — eat healthily! 2. Stress Yes, stress is a normal, unavoidable part of life — we all experience it. But hey, you should be aware that excessive amounts of stress only spell trouble. Yes, when you experience too much stress, the enzyme, aromatase will begin to convert testosterone into estrogen. Aromatase? Well, it's basically an enzyme that produces estrogen by aromatizing androgens (testosterone in this regard). With this in mind, it's best you learn how to manage and reduce stress in your day to day life. Just don't let life's unpredictable ups and downs get the better part of you. 3. Not Exercising Got the habit of sitting around all day doing nothing? Or are you the type who believes exercise doesn't really matter? If yes, think again! Of course, today, it's no secret that regular exercise is one of the surest ways to keep your body in tip-top shape. In fact, the simple act of working out (regularly) can save you from countless health problems and keep your hormone levels in check. But what happens when you choose to stay inactive? Well, you'll only end up getting more fatty tissues in your body and eventually experience a rise in estrogen levels. 4. Excessive Intake of Alcohol Yes, we don't really need to talk much on this one! If you're a health conscious person, you'll relate when we say alcohol doesn't go too well with your liver. As a matter of fact, long-term use of alcohol can increase one's risk of chronic liver inflammation and liver disease. For those who might not be aware, the liver plays a crucial role in metabolizing the hormone, estrogen. So of course, one can easily tell what happens when it (the liver) gets damaged. Yes, your estrogen will be all over the place! Our little piece of advice; cut down on the bottles or better still, stop it altogether. Trust us, your liver will thank you! 5. Too much Caffeine Got a thing for coffee? If yes, you're not alone; most if not all of us can't do without our morning cup of Joe. But hey, you should be aware that excessive intake can spike estrogen levels — yes, it can! So, just try not to go overboard with the cups; three a day should be perfect. Stay healthy!

Best 5 Exercises to Improve Eyesight Naturally
Do you know that our eye muscles are the hardest working muscle group in the body? It's second to the heart. We use our eyes all the time regardless of whether we're at work, at the gym or relaxing at home. Now the thing is, our eyes are likely to get tired and less efficient over time, and that's exactly why you need to look for ways to improve your eyesight. The good news is, your eyes can be more efficient with simple exercises — you'll get to reduce the strain on your eyes and enjoy perfect vision for years to come. Here are five exercises that are sure to keep your eyes in tip-top shape: 5. Just Blink Most of us spend a significant amount of time looking at smartphones, computers, and televisions — these activities prevent you from blinking enough, and that's bad. Your eyes need to get away from all that light — they need a period of darkness. This is precisely where blinking comes into play — the act of blinking relaxes and rehydrates the eyes. You can choose to slow blink or quick blink — both of them are sure to work wonders on your eyes. You can blink your eyes every 30 seconds for two minutes or blink every 4 seconds for two minutes — just stick with the one that works for you and keep at it. 4. Focus It's also possible to strengthen your eye muscles by performing a simple focus-driven exercise. Focusing on objects which are near and far away from you can help train your eyes for better eyesight. • Start by sitting in a comfortable position • Now hold your thumb and let it be 10 inches away from your eyes • Use your eyes to focus on every detail of your thumb for a few seconds • Now look away at any object that is 10 to 20 feet away from you. Focus on the object for a few seconds then return to your thumb. • Just repeat the cycle of focusing on your thumb and the far away object. 3. Figure Eight Are your eyes feeling lazy? Well, it's time to snap them out of it! This simple exercise will bring your eyes to life and help them regain their lost flexibility. Let's give it a shot! • Start by visualizing a large figure of eight about 8 to 10 feet away from you • Now, use your mind to turn the 8 to its side — it should look like an infinity symbol if done correctly. • Finally, slowly rotate your eyes along the shape of this figure for about 3 to 5 minutes. Once you're done, reverse the direction for the same amount of time. 2. Round the Clock This is yet another exercise that has to do with your imagination. While seating and closing your eyes, picture a clock in front of you. Now visualize the numbers 12 and 6 while still closing your eyes. Move your eyes down from 12 to 6 in a clockwise rotation — be sure to do this 15 to 20 times. You can visualize new numbers like 3 and 9 repeat the process in a clockwise and counter-clockwise motion. This exercise can provide relief to blurry vision. 1. Massage the Upper and Lower Eyelids When you massage the eyes, you'll get to relax them while reducing strain and tension for better blood flow. Moreover, applying mild pressure on the tear duct will increase moistness and eventually provide relief to tired eyes. So there you have it! These are simple tips to improve eyesight naturally — start working those eyes! Subscribe for more! https://goo.gl/nJ8d6r
