Weight Gain and Diet You’ve Been Lied To.

If you’re still struggling with weight gain and your diet is still the same, you need to change your thinking before anything else.  This will make the whole process more achievable because it’s really not your fault.  In the last 50 years we have all been lied to on a major scale when it comes to Nutrition and the problems we face around weight gain. We have all succumbed to the massive marketing machine that is our local Supermarket.  Bright shiny packaging and discounted offers have put us in to a rut when it comes to food and nutrition.  The […] Read more »

Staying Healthy – What’s Your Number?

Staying healthy in a study led by Dr Sandra Mandic, of the University of Otego in Dunedin, New Zealand, of nearly 4,400 healthy US adults, found that the 20% with the lowest physical fitness levels were twice as likely to die over the next nine years as the 20% with the next lowest fitness levels. In other words, if you can get yourself out of the least fit 20% of the population, you can double your survival chances.   http://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/walking/19595-unfit-start-here#sthash.MSjGF22k.dpuf Now I don’t know about you, but I like percentages, you always know where you are at a glance.  So where […] Read more »

Winter And Having No Weight Gain

 I’ve just had lunch and got to thinking about winter food and having no weight gain again like last year, and how it’s been like this for the last few years since I tamed the beast.  I was thinking how good it is to have my weight under control when so many guys seem to be in a constant battle with their food.  I’m sitting here in Somerset in the UK today, the weather is better than it was in July, well actually… May, June and July for that matter.  We’ve had no real summer as such, just lots of […] Read more »

Seaweed Toast Is Same As Half An Hour On Treadmill

According to the Telegraph Breakfasting on a slice of bread baked with ground-up seaweed could help burn more calories than half an hour on a treadmill, according to new research. Trials on nearly 80 healthy but overweight men showed those fed scrambled egg on seaweed enriched toast felt so full they consumed 179 calories less a day.  The tests at Sheffield Hallam University are the first to involve adding the entire seaweed plant to the bread mix rather than breaking it down to extract various chemicals. The bread – served with the crusts cut off – did not include any […] Read more »

Men’s Health – Nutrition, Exercises, and Routines For Men

Nutrition for Men Cyndi Waters writes that the male body has a higher percentage of muscle tissue than the female body. To support lean muscle tissue, especially in active men, eating adequate amounts protein is essential. In fact, men who want to build muscle mass might benefit from slightly increasing the daily recommendation of protein in their diets. A diet that is built around lean cuts of meat, fish, eggs, poultry, and low-fat dairy products may better encourage muscle growth. Although too little protein in the diet can cause muscles to shrink, eating too much protein may actually stimulate weight […] Read more »

What Is A Negative Calorie?

Today I have included a list of what is often referred to as negative calorie foods.  I’ve had a look at this, and here’s what I’ve found out.  There is no such thing as a negative calorie.  A calorie is a unit of heat and cannot be negative. What this really means is foods that are low enough, that it takes more energy to eat and digest it than the food contains. This is the list of foods that fall into this category.  Remember no one food should be consumed in excess, as this can be damaging to our bodies.  […] Read more »
