Am I Lazy?

Are we lazy or technologically dysfunctional?

Is the reason that there has been an increase in obesity due to the fact that adults in today’s society are lazy? Are we all just a bunch of lethargic couch potatoes that don’t do anything but sit around and eat all the time? I say no. Instead we are a product of our revolutionary, technological society. I am not saying we can blame technology, rather I am saying that as with our youth, the adults are also a reflection of the society that surrounds them. It isn’t an excuse, but it is a thought I pondered based on my typical day.

I get up in the morning, not to the sound of an aggravating buzz, beep, or the blaring of the radio. These alarms would get my blood racing right from the start, but I would hit snooze to stop the insanity. Then it would happen again, and again, the snooze bar. After a few times of this I am would now be late for work, rush to the shower if I even had time, rush to the car, and speed off to work. Not in today’s world. Instead, I wake to the soothing sound of the ocean on my Homedics radio and slowly wake peacefully. No blood pumping, no increased heart rate. I just have a nice and slow, easy awakening. Next I head to the shower where I put turn on my shower CD player and listen to something that I enjoy while I take my time letting the water almost run cold.

During my toweling off and getting dressed period of the morning, I can hear my coffee being made on the coffee maker that is set to make me a cup every morning with me not having to do a thing. While I sit and drink my coffee pondering the day ahead of me, I notice that it is almost gone, so I gently push a button on my key ring that starts my car and gets it nice and warm for me before I even get to it. I can then take my leisurely stroll to my car, get in, and have a nice peaceful drive to work (barring any unforeseen road rage). Nothing like before when I had to run to my car because I was late most of the time due to the annoyance of my alarm or run because it was cold and then get in and shake and shiver for 10 minutes until it warmed up.

Once at work I find myself taking out my PDA and seeing what is on my agenda for the day. Nope, no more flipping through pages of my pocket calendar or scheduler. My work day is simple and uneventful, but instead of having to run back and forth through the office to get messages to everyone, I can now simply send an interoffice email with the push of a button. When it is time to leave, I again start my car from my office and drive home.

Arriving at home, I put in a microwave dinner that doesn’t have to be chopped up, cut up, stirred, blended, kneaded, poked, or even prodded. Push a few buttons and five minutes later I am sitting in front of the TV watching the shows I recorded on my cable’s digital recorder and eating my five minute, nuked meal. Would I have done this in the past? The answer is no, because I would have had to physically make something to eat, and there wouldn’t be anything on TV worth watching, so I would eat and go do something like yard work, clean the house, play with the kids, whatever, just something else to occupy the time. Oops, while I was eating, I got some crumbs on the floor and then dropped some more on the way back to the kitchen. Oh well, I will just push the button on my robot vacuum cleaner and let it clean the whole floor as it is preprogrammed to do.

Finally, my day is coming to an end and instead of doing something really constructive before I go to bed, I can’t resist the opportunity to surf the Internet for a little while, maybe chat to some friends or relatives, and check my email. Besides, I have to plug in my PDA to the computer anyway. Now my lazy or technologically dysfunctional day is complete.

This whole story brings me back to my question that started the whole thing. Am I lazy or am I just a product of my environment. It is this author’s opinion that I am both. Years ago, even the simple things like making the dinner would be exercise, but now it is too easy because it is done for you in a box. Everything today is easy and most adults are on the heavy side, because things are easier and don’t take as much energy. That doesn’t mean we in society are lazy, it means we don’t have to exert ourselves as much to accomplish the every day routines that are needed to complete the day. However, I could stop by the gym on my way home, or go for a walk after dinner, so I am also lazy too. The Internet just pulls me in night after night and I can’t seem to make myself do anything else after dinner. Shame on you technology for holding that gun to my head!

All You Need To Know About Vitamin A

 

Quality vitamin nutrition is essential in maintaining proper health and preventing disease. Vitamins control specific body processes such as cell renewal, immune function, and bone strengthening. Although food can provide much of our nutritional needs, regular meals contain only part of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of most vitamins. Vitamin supplements are a great way to obtain quality vitamin nutrition while maintaining a balanced diet.

FACTS:

Vitamin A is fat-soluble. It requires fats as well as minerals to be properly absorbed by your digestive tract.
It can be stored in your body and need not be replenished every day.
It occurs in two forms—preformed vitamin A, called retinol (found only
in foods of animal origin), and provitamin A, known as carotene (provided by foods of both plant and animal origin).

Vitamin A is measured in USP Units (United States Pharmacopeia), IU
(International Units), and RE (Retinol Equivalents). (See section 168.)
1,000 RE (or 5,000 IU) is the recommended daily dosage for adult males to prevent deficiency. For females it’s 800 RE (4,000 IU). During pregnancy the new RDIs/RDAs do not recommend an increase, but for nursing mothers an
additional 500 RE is suggested for the first six months and an additional 400 RE for the second six months.

There is no formal RDI/RDA for beta-carotene, because it is not (yet) offi-
cially recognized as an essential nutrient. But anywhere from 10,000–15,000
IUs of beta-carotene are needed to meet the RDI/RDA for vitamin A.

WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOU:

Counteract night blindness, weak eyesight, and aid in the treatment of
many eye disorders. (It permits formation of visual purple in the eye.)
Build resistance to respiratory infections.
Aid in the proper function of the immune system.
Shorten the duration of diseases.
Keep the outer layers of your tissues and organs healthy.
Help in the removal of age spots.
Promote growth, strong bones, healthy skin, hair, teeth, and gums.
Help treat acne, superficial wrinkles, impetigo, boils, carbuncles, and open ulcers when applied externally.
Aid in the treatment of emphysema and hyperthyroidism.

 

Foods You Should Eat Everyday

 

 

2014-09-30-Yogurt.jpg

Yogurt
Various cultures claim yogurt as their own creation, but the 2,000-year-old food’s health benefits are not disputed: Fermentation spawns hundreds of millions of probiotic organisms that serve as reinforcements to the battalions of beneficial bacteria in your body. That helps boost your immune system and helps provide protection against cancer. Not all yogurts are probiotic, though, so make sure the label says “live and active cultures.” Aim for 1 cup of the calcium and protein-rich goop a day. And choose wisely: Use our Best and Worst Yogurts.

2014-09-30-Tomatoes.jpg

Tomatoes
There are two things you need to know about tomatoes: Red are the best, because they’re packed with more of the antioxidant lycopene, and processed tomatoes are just as potent as fresh ones, because it’s easier for the body to absorb the lycopene. Studies show that a diet rich in lycopene can decrease your risk of bladder, lung, prostate, skin, and stomach cancers, as well as reduce the risk of coronary artery disease. Aim for 22 mg of lycopene a day, which is about eight red cherry tomatoes or a glass of tomato juice. For the best picks in the produce aisle, click here.

2014-09-30-Carrots.png

Carrots
Most red, yellow, or orange vegetables and fruits are spiked with carotenoids — fat-soluble compounds that are associated with a reduction in a wide range of cancers, as well as reduced risk and severity of inflammatory conditions such as asthma and rheumatoid arthritis — but none are as easy to prepare, or have as low a caloric density, as carrots. Aim for 1/2 cup a day.

2014-09-30-Blueberries.jpg

Blueberries
Host to more antioxidants than any other North American fruit, blueberries can help prevent cancer, diabetes, and age-related memory changes (hence the nickname “brain berry”). Studies show that blueberries, which are rich in fiber and vitamins A and C, also boost cardiovascular health. Aim for 1 cup fresh blueberries a day, or 1/2 cup frozen or dried. Try this amazing blueberry smoothie!

 

2014-09-30-Walnuts.jpg

Walnuts
Richer in heart-healthy omega-3s than salmon, loaded with more anti-inflammatory polyphenols than red wine, and packing half as much muscle-building protein as chicken, the walnut sounds like a Frankenfood, but it grows on trees. Other nuts combine only one or two of these features, not all three. A serving of walnuts — about 1 ounce, or 7 nuts — is good anytime, but especially as a post-workout recovery snack.

 

 

All About The Best Stomach Exercises

 

It is only natural, most people want to look their best, and exercising their stomach muscles is usually a huge part of most fitness programs. If so much time and energy is going to be focused on this muscle group, it is a good idea to know what the best stomach exercises are. There are many resources available for finding the best stomach exercises, and plenty of people to say what they consider the best, so how can a person decide for themselves which truly are the best exercises for working their stomach muscles?

First of all it is important to note that the best stomach exercises are those that a person is willing to do. No matter how effective the exercise is, if a person isn’t going to do them consistently the exercise will not benefit that particular individual. It is also important to note that the best stomach exercises do not necessarily require equipment to perform them, although some machines and equipment may work quite well for some people.

When a person decides on a fitness program that includes stomach exercises, it is best to include stomach exercises that work the different parts of the stomach. If a person simply concentrates on one area of their stomach, there workout will not be as effective. The best stomach exercises, combine working the oblique, which are the side muscles, the lower abdominals, the mid section and also the upper section.

Some of the most popular stomach exercises are crunches. These are a very effective exercise and very convenient since they can be performed anywhere without any equipment. The next stomach exercise that is also very popular and goes along with the basic crunch is the side crunch, which works out the oblique.

Some people consider the best stomach exercises to be included in a Pilate’s workout. The reason for this is because in Pilates, the whole focus is on the core of the body which is the abdominal, or stomach muscles. Every movement in a Pilate’s workout will work the stomach muscles either directly or indirectly. These exercises can be found on the internet, either the exercise itself or video’s that can be purchased.

Another good exercise that some fitness experts considers to be one of the best stomach exercises involves laying flat on your stomach, leg straight and then raising your body up using your arms as your hands are clasped together and keeping your body straight as if doing a pushup. Hold this position as long as you can stand. This is an excellent movement to strengthen the whole stomach.

Remember again though that just because one person may consider a specific exercise to be the best stomach exercise that does not necessarily mean it is the best for everyone. Each person’s body is different and will respond differently to certain movements. Any one serious about working on the abdominal muscles will find it most helpful to try several different stomach exercises and then determine which one they can both feel and see results with. If one exercise is simply too hard to do correctly, or does not feel like it has done anything for the muscle group worked, that exercise is clearly not the best and the person should find what works best for them.

 

 

3 Exercise Machines You Should Avoid Sometimes

 

1) The Machine: Seated Leg Extension

Since the weight is placed so close to your ankles, the machine puts undue torque on the knee joint, which can wear down cartilage and cause knee pain, Gaddour says. Plus, the common gym contraption is built around a motion that has little real-life benefit.

– Try This Instead: Step Ups
Besides working your quads far better than any machine, step ups also train your glutes, hamstrings, and calves. By calling up more muscles, your knees are actually strengthened, not worn down.

2) The Machine: Seated Chest Press

While sitting is less than useful, the bigger problem here is that the machine can cause lopsided muscles. How? If one arm is weaker, the stronger one can end up doing all the work — and getting all the benefit, Gaddour says. To make sure both sides of your chest are strengthened equally, you need to load them separately.

– Try This Instead: Pushups
An oldie but a goodie, pushups equally engage both sides of your chest. If it didn’t, you’d fall right over onto your side. What’s more, they tap your core for support and balance. After all, hot bodies aren’t built on chests alone.

3) The Machine: Hip Abductor/Adductor

If it looks ridiculous, it probably is, Gaddour says. And squeezing your thighs together — or pushing them apart — over and over definitely counts. Besides actually working very few muscles, it also strains the spine and can make the IT band so tight it pulls your knee cap out of place — not a good look for anybody.

– Try This Instead: Single-Leg Squat
When you’re not in the gym, your inner and outer thighs largely work to maintain stability. So they should do the same thing when you’re in the gym, right? Single leg exercises — like the single-leg bodyweight squat — require those muscles to brace your body and keep you upright, all while putting your quads, glutes, and hamstrings to good use.

What Is FORSKOLIN FIT ?

It Is The Hottest Weight Loss Solution

  • 100% Premium Forskolin Root Extract
  • Burn Stubborn Fat
  • Build Lean Muscle
  • Improve Your Metabolism

 

How Forskolin Fit Pro Will Make You Lose Weight

Forskolin will increase your weight loss in 4 different ways that combined can give you that boost you have been looking for when it comes to losing weight. Also, Forskolin will also make it easier to maintain your weight after you finished your diet.

Starts the Lipolysis Fat Burning Process

Lipolysis is the process when storage fat is being released as pure energy that your body can burn as calories. Forskolin activates fat burning enzymes like cAMP (Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate). It is a messenger that triggers the Lipolysis process to get started so you will be burning more storage body fat than just being on a regular low-calorie diet.

Makes it Easier to Burn of the Stubborn Fat Cells

One thing is to burn off body fat on the easy parts of your body. Another thing is the most stubborn areas like stomach, hips and buttocks were also cellulite may occur.

Forskolin can release fatty acids from your adipose tissue which results in a breakdown of fat cells on those more stubborn areas of body fat.

Help You To Maintain Testosterone levels and to Build Lean Muscles

Forskolin Fit Pro will help you to maintain healthy levels of testosterone (women also) which will help you to maintain your muscle mass during dieting. When you want to lose weight one of the main keys to losing weight and keep the weight off after finishing your diet is to maintain as much muscle mass as possible.

Because of this benefit using Forskolin Fit Pro, you can get some extraordinary good weight loss results if you train your muscles a couple of times during the week.

Prevent New Buildup of Body Fat

There is nothing worse than spending a couple of weeks going on a diet to lose weight, for then to gain it all back on in a few months after your diet. It happens because dieting slows down your metabolism so you will have to eat less food when you finished. Unfortunately, this never happens, and you start to gain weight again.

Forskolin will ensure that your metabolism stays elevated during and after our diet so you will avoid this problem.

Forskolin is also great if you are suffering from a sleeping metabolism, due to previous weight loss attempts.

PRO MUSCLES FIT

pro-muscle-fit-pay-attention-to-get-free-trial_52c651af227191a_800x600

What is Pro Muscle Fit?

Pro Muscle Fit is an amino acid supplement. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They play an important role throughout the entire body. When you work out regularly, amino acids keep your muscles supplied with the oxygen, nutrients, and vitamins needed to stay healthy.

To help you accomplish your bodybuilding goals, Pro Muscle Fit contains a whopping 2400mg of L-Arginine as well as additional amino acids like OKG ornithine and glutamine.

Benefits

The benefits are detailed within research results for specific applications, but it should be mentioned what the provider implies Pro Muscle Fit would provide for the consumer:

  • Muscle recovery occurs faster;
  • Muscle is preserved as breakdown is prevented;
  • Facilitation of muscle growth, and promotes the development of additional strength;
  • The L-Arginine Blend is completely based off an amino acid formula;
  • The preservation of muscle tissue accommodates for quicker recovery time;
  • Improved blood flow allows essential nutrients, including the ones in Pro Muscle Fit, to be more efficient.

Despite the promises that Pro Muscle Fit makes, because of research results that could not conclude the efficacy of Nitrous Oxide to promote blood flow in humans or animals, a more accurate and completely scientifically backed benefit list with no implications would look more like this:

Pricing & Free Trial

Pro Muscle Fit providers offer a free trial bottle of 90 capsules with the only cost applying to shipping and handling. This is a one month supply of the supplement, but the trial offer automatically puts you into the Pro Muscle Fit Subscription Program. You can cancel in 15 days from the order date, and the product must be returned within the 15 days to be able cancel it successfully.

No other details from the provider mention an alternative method of purchase other than the subscription program, which is $79.00 a month for a new bottle/monthly supply of Pro Muscle Fit. Pricing doesn’t seem flexible, with no higher or lower quantities available for a capsule amount that accommodates for supplies lasting less than a month or more than a month.

This Guy Is True Inspiration

A morbidly obese man who was forced to buy two aeroplane seats has ditched his 15,000 calorie a day diet to hit the gym – and now looks unrecognisable.

Ross Gardner, 39, from Florida, dropped from 392 lbs (28 stone) to just 2013 lbs (14 stone 7 lbs) after doctors warned he had just three years to live.

While he once consumed around 15,000 calories every day – six times the recommended daily amount for the average male – Ross struggled to squeeze into size XXXXL clothing.

“My belly button was down by my knees and I had to tuck my skin into my shorts to hide it,” Gardner Said. “It was humiliating.”

He didn’t need to have skin removed from his arms because of how big his muscles had become. Those are some serious gains.

According to his Instagram, most of his weight-loss journey took place in 2005. Gardner has maintained his physique and still looks awesome. Since then, he’s become a chiropractor and enjoys helping people and motivating others to make changes the way he did
