A Health and Fitness Holiday – Your Ticket to a New You!

It can be argued that the in the World today many people are searching for help with weight loss, fitness and improving energy levels. Busy lives, unhealthy temptations, lack of regular exercise, lack of sun and lethargy can all sabotage our efforts to be healthy.

It can be hard to make healthy eating choices when we are bombarded with television commercials advertising unhealthy foods. In our home we call these foods ‘naughty’. In our supermarkets cakes, sweets, crisps and an array of unhealthy foods adorn the shelves. We are offered two for one deals and half price on many items so we end up filling our baskets with foods that offer no nutritional value and can in fact harm our health in the long term.

When our energies are low we reach for a quick fix like a bar of chocolate, a cup of coffee or a packet of crisps. But these highs are short lived as the artificial high comes crashing down and we reach for the next pick me up again. In the long term these foods can make us put on weight and can even lead to diseases like diabetes.

All these high sugar and salt foods are annihilating out taste buds. So it becomes increasingly hard for us to eat the apple instead of the cake. It is much harder to exercise when we haven’t got any energy so eating the wrong foods can also sabotage our fitness efforts. It is important to try and break this destructive cycle.

So what can we do?

It would probably help if we were taken away from the environment we live in and be transported to somewhere super healthy. This way we would be free from our daily stresses that cause us to make bad food choices and not to exercise. This super health haven could hopefully inspire and motivate us to make better health choices. Which we could then bring home with us and the knowledge we have gained would be put to good use.

So do these types of healthy havens exist?

There are health and fitness holidays, detox spas and centres, fitness boot camps and fitness retreats. These types of places will offer diet and weight loss advice and fitness activities. Here you will be surrounded by like minded people and it will be much easier to stick to a healthy eating a plan and exercise schedule. After one of these holidays you would expect to lose weight, feel fitter and come away feeling refreshed and renewed. The knowledge gained can be taken home so you can continue with your new healthy lifestyle. Visiting one of these places could be the kick start that you need and away of you starting a new healthy lifestyle. These types of health and fitness holidays and detox resorts are all over the World.

During your research look for a company that has good testimonials and a good web site. Look at the photos do they look like real people? Check out their Facebook page and check that the holiday is current and they are uploading up to date information about their holiday. You can also see if they have a You Tube channel so you can see what type of activities they get up to. Also make sure that their fitness team are experienced and qualified. Do some investigative work on Google to see what is an offer.

To your good health and happiness.

3 Strategies for the Best Men’s Health and Fitness

These days, increasingly more men are interested in health and fitness programs. This is not surprising since most people are concerned about obesity and health conditions today such as diabetes, heart disease, prostate cancer and more.

These are more than enough reasons to motivate anyone to get into good shape. I’m going to show you three strategies for successful men’s health and fitness.

There is no easy and quick way for you to get in good shape, so you must be prepared to put in the time and effort to achieve the desired results. A combination of a healthy diet, strength training and cardio exercises will go a long way towards your overall fitness.

Just follow these three suggestions for a healthy and strong body:

1. Record Everything: You want to write down what you are doing in your exercise routine so you can see how you are progressing. First, write down your weight loss goal. Then write down each exercise for your exercise routine.

How many repetitions of each exercise did you do that day? Write it down in your log. You will then be able to see where you need to change things for the better and how well you can do. When you have achieved your weight loss goal, this is a good time to add weight in your weight lifting routine.

2. Each Session: Make sure you include weight lifting three times a week in your routine. This will help you to get the best results from your training sessions.

You will now be growing your muscles. As you weight lift three, maybe four times per week, you muscles have time to increase and rebuild. If you don’t continue to push those muscles, they just go back to where they were.

3. Eat Lots of Protein: When compared to women, it is much easier for men to lose weight. Men’s health and fitness programs always recommend protein to grow your muscles and to help you recover.

In general, men who are working out 4 or more times each week must eat about one gram of protein on those days for each pound of body weight. It’s also important to eat meals with 0.25 grams of protein right after each workout.

If possible, try to eat thirty minutes after a rigorous workout because your body will need some high-quality protein to recover fully. Build your muscles by breaking down amino acids. The best way to do this is by adding proteins. You can have a protein shake, a chicken breast, or maybe some eggs to add protein.

Hopefully, these simple men’s fitness tips for will help you achieve your goals. Remember that by using a regular exercise routine, you improve not only your body’s appearance, but your overall health.
