  • 4 Reasons to Include Protein in Your Weight Loss Diet

    If you want to lose weight the bottom line is you need to burn more calories than you eat. For some people who diet rigorously this means just cutting calories at the expense of nutrition. Although you may lose weight from simply cutting calories, if you neglect to include protein in your diet you will often be disappointed with the end results.

    4 REASONS TO INCLUDE PROTEIN IN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS DIET 4 REASONS TO INCLUDE PROTEIN IN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS DIET

    Here are our top four reasons why you need protein in your weight loss diet:

    1. If you eat the right protein foods, they won’t make you fat
    If you choose the right protein, and eat the right quantities, it won’t make you gain weight. Meat products and dairy products may contain fat, but your body needs fat to stay healthy. You can always select items that contain less fat. Low-fat cottage cheese, chicken breasts, egg whites and most varieties of fish are great sources of protein that contain minimal fat, as are low-fat protein shakes.

    2. High protein foods may help suppress hunger cravings
    Protein controls hunger, which is the enemy of any diet. Cravings for high calorie foods should reduce if you eat protein with your meals and snacks. Protein takes longer to digest, so it keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

    3. Your body needs protein to complement all types of exercise
    Protein is required for all muscle activity, not just weight-lifting. Whether you are doing cardio, running, biking or another activity, if you don’t eat enough protein, your body will start to take it from your muscles. You may be thin, but you probably won’t look lean and toned. Protein helps rebuild muscle tissue after exercise.

    4. Protein alone won’t make you look like a bodybuilder!
    Healthy protein and even protein powders will help you create a lean, toned body. They will not cause you to create bulky muscle mass. That depends on the type of physical training you do. Bodybuilders spend an enormous amount of time in the gym and consume a huge amount of calories to create and maintain their physique.

    The optimum amount of protein you need every day is still being debated. The minimum recommended protein intake for women is 0.75g per kilo of your body weight, and 0.84g per kilo for men. However, for very active people, or people trying to lose weight, the recommendation varies from 1g/kilo up to 2.2g/kilo of body weight. You don’t need to eat it all in one sitting - you should try to eat some at every meal and use it to help control hunger cravings. For example if you want to avoid cravings before lunch, try eating more protein at breakfast.

    If you are struggling to keep calories low and include protein in your diet, you could consider supplementing with a low carb protein shake. You can also use these shakes to provide a boost after workouts to help repair your muscles.

  • Natural Remedies For Joint Health

    As you get older, have you started to notice some of your joints becoming stiff or achy from time to time? I certainly have, and I suspect that I’m beginning to develop a little osteoarthritis – most people do experience it to some extent as they age.

    NATURAL REMEDIES FOR JOINT HEALTH NATURAL REMEDIES FOR JOINT HEALTH

    Staying pain-free and remaining flexible and mobile is important to me, both now and in the future, so here are some of the supplements I take to help support my joint health.

    GLUCOSAMINE AND CHONDROITIN FOR CARTILAGE AND JOINT SUPPORT

    Glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are two of the most popular natural treatments for arthritis   , and with good reason: the body uses both these substances to help maintain and repair the structure of the cartilage that lines the joints.

    Taken together for periods of at least 1-2 months, glucosamine and chondroitin may assist in the management of osteoarthritis and the associated pain, swelling, inflammation and stiffness, while simultaneously helping to increase the flexibility and mobility of affected joints.

    Glucosamine sulfate may also be of benefit in cartilage damage caused by sporting injuries, when it may assist with joint function, tissue repair and pain relief.

    OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS: NATURAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

    If you’re affected by arthritis, you’ve got even more reason than everyone else to make sure you’re getting enough fish in your diet. The omega-3 fats found in fish oil (as well as in krill and flaxseed oils), have anti-inflammatory actions in the body, and may help relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

    DON’T FORGET YOUR OTHER VITAMINS AND MINERALS

    Besides glucosamine, chondroitin and the omega-3 fats, a wide range of nutrients are involved in the maintenance of healthy connective tissue and cartilage. In particular, be aware that vitamin C is needed for cartilage production and growth, and that manganese is a cofactor in the production of the building blocks of cartilage.

    ROSE HIP RELIEVES ARTHRITIS PAIN

    Rose hip oil is well known for the benefits it has when applied topically to the skin, but did you know that other parts of the rose hip also have health benefits? In particular, compounds found in rose hips called galactolipids can aid in the management of osteoarthritis by helping to relieve arthritis pain and improving joint mobility . In clinical studies involving patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, rose hip has demonstrated benefits for osteoarthritis when taken in doses of 5 grams per day over several months.

  • Don't Put Off Prostate Care

    Father’s Day is just around the corner, and that gives us the perfect excuse to talk about men’s health – and prostate health in particular.

    DON’T PUT OFF PROSTATE CARE DON’T PUT OFF PROSTATE CARE

    It might be one of those things that most blokes prefer not to talk about, but as you get older, the health of your prostate becomes more and more important. Not only do you become more likely to develop the troubling urinary symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), but from the age of 40 onwards, it also becomes increasingly vital that you talk to your GP about monitoring the health of this often-neglected part of the body.

    Those regular check-ups aside, what can you do to help maintain your prostate health? Here are a few recommendations.

    EAT MORE VEGGIES, AND LESS RED MEAT

    Research has shown that men who consume at least four servings of vegetables each day are significantly less likely to develop symptoms of BPH than men who eat only a single serving. On the other hand, men who eat red meat on a daily basis are more likely to develop BPH than those who only eat it once a week, or even less often.

    SAW PALMETTO HELPS RELIEVE BPH SYMPTOMS

    Native American Indians used the berries of the saw palmetto plant as a traditional herbal tonic to support men’s wellbeing, sexual health and prostate function . Modern scientific research suggests they were on to something, and that saw palmetto may be effective at relieving symptoms of medically diagnosed BPH – although it may need to be taken for up to six weeks before its effects become noticeable.

    PUMPKIN SEED OIL PROVIDES ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FATS

    Pepitas and pumpkin seeds make the perfect prostate-friendly snack! The oil they contain is a natural source of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, which are required by the body for the production of anti-inflammatory compounds called prostaglandins. When taken in conjunction with saw palmetto extract, pumpkin seed oil may assist in the relief of the urinary symptoms associated with BPH . Don’t like the idea of munching on pumpkin seeds on a regular basis? Add some pumpkin seed oil to your salads instead, or simpler still, take it in a supplement.

    DEVELOP A TASTE FOR TOMATOES

    Along with other red-coloured fruit and vegetables, tomatoes are a rich, natural source of lycopene, a potent antioxidant that helps protect prostate tissues from oxidative damage. Absorption of lycopene is enhanced when tomatoes have been cooked and when a little oil is also present  – so foods like tomato paste and pasta sauce are ideal additions to your diet. If you’d rather take lycopene in a supplement, choose one that also contains other antioxidants (such as zinc and selenium), as it’s considered more beneficial to take antioxidants in combination than as single nutrients.

    Think about zinc and selenium

    The trace minerals zinc and selenium are vital nutrients for men’s health, being required for the healthy production of testosterone, as well as for sperm production and function.
