A Must Read for Women of Any Age!

15671371_xlTo reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) incorporate both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities into your routine! Aerobic exercise is physical activity that increases your breathing and heart rate- like power walking, jogging and swimming. Try resistance training and yoga as muscle-strengthening and conditioning activities to work your muscles.

A recent Harvard School of Public Health study found that muscle strengthening and conditioning activities are associated with a lower risk of T2D. The Harvard study followed nearly 100,000 women over eight years, and found that women who did more than 150 minutes a week of muscle strengthening or conditioning activity had a 40% lower risk of developing T2D than women who did no muscle work. In addition, women who did at least 150 minutes a week of aerobic exercise and 60 minutes a week of muscle-strengthening were a third as likely to develop T2D as inactive women.Read More

Diet VS. Nutrition

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

When we hear the word nutrition, we often think of healthy foods. But healthy foods are really part of the diet. Our cells can only benefit from good nutrition if the foods in the diet are broken down into building blocks small enough to absorb. To sum it up, diet is what we eat, but nutrition is what our cells and tissues actually receive. In fact, there are six stages that make up good nutrition.

Our Scientific Advisory Board understands this distinction well, which is why each NeoLife Nutritional was formulated to support one or more of these vital stages so cells may receive the balanced nutrition they need.Read More

Resolutions- What you need to know for success!

kb_resolution_imgThis morning I went to the gym, as I do most mornings before work, expecting to enter the chaos that typically follows the celebration of each New Year and the resolutions we so often feel inspired to make.

To my surprise the gym was a ghost town, even deserted by the regular crowd usually spotted at this time of morning.

So why is this happening? The answer is simple: people aren’t sticking to their resolutions! But that’s only to be expected when we arbitrarily throw up statements like “I’m going to lose weight” or “I’m going to eat healthier” and then don’t follow through with how we are going to get there. By not taking the proper steps for success we are setting ourselves up for failure.

So what does it take to succeed with our New Year’s resolutions?Read More

“Last summer’s clothes didn’t fit as nicely this summer,” admits Warren Gouws. He was ready to do something about getting into better shape. So when his friend invited him to register for the New England Tough Mudder, a 12-mile obstacle course, Warren figured that was just the motivation he needed.
