I run 3 days a week but I can't seem to improve my speed. What can I do? Answer: You have to train fast to be fast. Turn every other training day into an interval-speed session. By exceeding your normal race pace for shorter runs, your muscles will become more efficient, improving your body's elasticity and helping you sustain a faster pace with less effort. Here's how to do it: After you warm up, run as fast as you can for 1 minute, followed by 3 minutes of rest. Do this four times and then walk for 5 minutes to cool down. To improve your gains, increase to 8 repetitions during a workout. Then go back to doing 6 reps with only 2 minutes of rest, build back to 8, and then try 6 reps with 1 minute of rest. As you run, pay attention to your arms, as they dictate leg movement. Fix your arms at 90 degrees, relax your shoulders, and focus on driving your elbows back as you run. This will improve your stride. … [Read more...] about I run 3 days a week but I can’t seem to improve my speed. What can I do?

Before: 172After: 120Growing up, I was never overweight; I was active and played sports. It wasn't until the end of college when the scale started creeping up. And once I got a real job and started living in the real world, it kept increasing. I gained 40 pounds over the course of 8 years.In 2012, I had a baby and toddler and had just become a stay-at-home mom. One day, I was at this playgroup with a bunch of other moms and a few of them mentioned that they had started going to Burn Boot Camp. They said that it was different than any other workout class they'd tried—and that the class was offering a Groupon special. This story was originally published by our partners at WomensHealthMag.com. … [Read more...] about I Worked Out 5 Days A Week For A Month—But I Didn’t Lose Weight Until I Started Meal Prepping
Is your kitchen filled with more restaurant menus than actual food? Welcome to the club: The average American orders takeout three days a week, according to a recent survey conducted by CouponCodes4U.com.For the online poll, researchers asked 2,503 participants about their takeout habits. Most of the people surveyed said they didn’t have time to prepare entire meals from scratch, while others said they had no interest in cooking (a few said they didn’t even know how to cook). So it’s no surprise that people ordered out so often—but indulging in takeout too frequently can wreak havoc on your waistline.Previous research has found that restaurant meals typically contain two to three times the calories you should be taking in at each meal—which may be why 72 percent of people in the survey said they were overweight.Many restaurants serve huge portions, says Brooke Alpert, RD, founder of B Nutritious, who was not part of the survey. That means you end up … [Read more...] about How to Save More Than 900 Calories A Week
(Natural News) A $43.8 million (about $33 million U.S. Dollar) state-run initiative called “Doctors in Secondary Schools” has been rolled out in the state of Victoria, Australia. This program promises to “fund general practitioners (GPs) to attend up to 100 Victorian government secondary schools up to one day a week to provide medical advice and health care to those students most in need.” While the concept of providing free medical care for in-need teens sounds great on the surface, it has been met with a storm of controversy, for multiple reasons.For one thing, many see this as a way for the state to line the pockets of Big Pharma and government officials with ties to drug companies. These connections run all the way to the top, with The Mind Unleashed reporting that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife are connected to some of the biggest of all Big Pharma corporations. For example, while the prime minister has pushed for government-mandated … [Read more...] about Victoria, Australia has mandated that children should see a doctor at least once a week to receive drugs and medical treatment without parental consent
Fasting, the act of abstaining from eating food, is a miraculous way to change your life for so many reasons than just 5, so I will try to choose my favorites for you. I have experienced many benefits from my path of fasting once per week (Note: fast includes 8+ glasses of distilled or purified water). I urge anyone who thinks they are in the best or worst of health to try it for themselves to see how much better it makes you feel! We don’t often realize how many toxic poisons our body’s store over the years and how little our bodies get the chance to focus on cleaning those poisons out of our systems. Here’s how the one day per week fast works with your body: not eating allows your body’s organs to use their limited vitality (energy) to focus on eliminating stored toxins from your body, where normally they have just enough vitality (energy) to process the food that is eaten and the toxins that come with it. It really gets a lot … [Read more...] about Fasting: 5 Healthy Reasons You Should Fast One Day Per Week
