Healthy Snacks for People on the Go

Healthy Snacks for People on the Go

January 14, 2020

Listen up men, I have good news and bad news. I'll get the bad out of the way first.

Life doesn't slow down because you are trying to eat right and stay in shape. It would be nice if your world harmoniously came together to help you eat right, exercise, and stay healthy but, life's responsibilities rarely give you a break.

Now the good news.

There is a wealth of convenient options that you can integrate into your busy life that will help you to remain in good health.

We will focus on one of the most important aspects of health -- eating right.

With a little planning and preparation, you can maintain a healthy diet that provides you with the energy that you need to thrive in all aspects of life. Below are a few snack options that are easy to integrate into your busy lifestyle.

Tuna Fish Pouch

Tuna has a strong taste that may not be for everybody but, if you like tuna fish it is a convenient and very nutritious snack choice. Tuna is a great source of muscle building, energy-giving, protein that has almost zero fat. This snack choice also contains every amino acid that is required by the human body to build and maintain muscle. Additionally, it is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids that promote heart health and have been observed to slow cancer cell growth.

Many tuna fish brands are packaged in thin, light, pouches, that can fit into any bag, briefcase, or even in your pocket. They make snacking healthy easy while your at the job site, your desk, or anywhere that your day may take you.

Seeds

Packing a small, plastic, bag with various types of seeds can be an easy way to bring a healthy snack along with your daily routine. There are multiple types of seeds to choose from including:

  • Flax seeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Sesame seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sunflower seeds

Seeds

These seeds are great sources of fiber and provide a number of nutrients that will keep your body fueled and ready to take on the day. Seeds can be a good source of protein, fiber, cholesterol-lowering compounds, antioxidants, and much more. They are also low calorie and are great to snack on throughout the entire day.

Jerky

Various types of jerky are great for a low-carb, high-protein option in moderation. Jerky also contains a number of nutrients that our bodies require including, iron, zinc, and magnesium. A word of warning, you must be very careful when selecting your beef jerky. Avoid junk-food types of beef jerky that contain a lot of artificial additives and are very high in sugar. Search for 'cleaner' brands of beef jerky that are low in sugar and that are sourced from organic, grass-fed, beef.

Experts say that jerky can keep for 1-2 years or more, as long as it is stored properly. This makes it a convenient snack option that you can leave in your desk or at your workstation for when you need the natural protein boost that it provides.

Apples

Apples are a great source of fiber and healthy carbohydrates. They can provide a shot of energy that you so often need in the middle of the day. They are a rich source of flavonoids which are known to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Apples as a healthy snack

Fruit does not keep forever but, apples typically last a week or more before going bad. Keeping a bag at your desk can give you a week full of easy snack options or, you can just grab one as you leave the house every day.

Supplements

Supplements were invented to help busy people get the nutrition they need in a convenient form. Shakes and capsules are an easy way to get the protein, vitamins, and a host of other nutrients that we all need to be healthy.

However, not all supplements are created equal. When picking a supplement, you should ensure that it is clinically shown to be safe and effective.

Mdrive New Years Resolution
6 Tips to Achieving Your New Year’s Resolutions

January 01, 2020

Another year, another calorie-filled holiday season, and another shot at slaying those New Year’s Resolutions! I just figured the generations before us created New Year’s Resolutions as a result of feeling guilty after an over-indulgent holiday. In reality, the origins of New Year’s Resolutions are rooted 4,000 years ago in Babylon. The ancient Babylonians pledged their allegiance to their gods in an 11-day festival celebrating the Nile flooding and crops renewing. They believed pledging their allegiance and repaying their debts would bring them good luck in the following year.

Julius Caesar is responsible for first changing the calendar year to begin January 1st, with widespread adoption later from Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 with the Gregorian calendar. The Romans named January after Janus, the two-faced god who symbolized looking back on the past and forward into the future.  

That’s deep, and that’s how we essentially arrived at today’s resolutions: we look physically and retrospectively into the mirror asking ourselves what we did and more importantly what we could have done better. I think we can all agree the paradigm shift from pledging to do better for others to pledging to do better for ourselves is a positive one. Change starts and ends with you.

Burning Fat With Thermogenics

December 06, 2019

Let’s be honest, most of us want to shed a few pounds. So, what we can do. To lose weight, you need to create an energy deficit by eating fewer calories or increasing the number of calories you “burn” through physical activity or both. We also hear the term “boost metabolism” as a way to shed pounds. Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy and not fat.

You can burn more calories and boost your metabolism with:

  • Regular aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is the most efficient way to burn calories and includes activities such as walking, bicycling and swimming. As a general goal, include at least 30 minutes of physical activity in your daily routine.

If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to increase the time you spend on physical activity even more. If you can't set aside time for a longer workout, try 10-minute chunks of activity throughout the day. Remember, the more active you are, the greater the benefits.

  • Strength training. Experts recommend strength training exercises, such as weightlifting, at least twice a week. Strength training is important because it helps counteract muscle loss associated with aging. And since muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue does, muscle mass is a key factor in weight loss.
  • Lifestyle activities. Any extra movement helps burn calories. Look for ways to walk and move around a few minutes more each day than the day before. Taking the stairs more often and parking farther away at the store are simple ways to burn more calories. Even activities such as gardening, washing your car and housework burn calories and contribute to weight loss.

Now, if you are eating right and exercising but want a little more help with “fat burning” and “metabolism boosting”, look into thermogenic supplements.

We’re moving into that time of year again when some of us (probably many of us) suffer from “winter tiredness”. It may be really hard to get up in the morning or you may feel an intense desire to sleep at 3 or 4 in the afternoon. You could actually feel a kind of depression. What the heck is going on?
