Fit Tips




Lower body weight lifting is just as important, if not more important than upper body.

It is important to get a sufficient amount of protein in your diet. 100-150g of protein a day on average is good for keeping strong muscles.

Losing two pounds a week of fat is healthy, but anymore and you could most likely be losing muscle.

Fats that should be eliminated completely from the body: trans fats, which have no nutritional value and are mostly found in calorie-dense baked goods and chips.

Light to moderate drinking protects against female midsection weight gain, compared with tea. A one 4-ounce glass of red or white wine most days a week is best.

It is easier to stay slim eating mono unsaturated fats (such as olive oil) and omega-3s (found mostly in fish but also in flaxseed and walnut oils and tofu).

Don’t start drinking wine just to fight ab fat, but if you enjoy a glass with dinner, it’s a great benefit.

Make lean choices such as low-fat yogurt, fat-free milk, fish, and poultry for your daily protein intake.

Aim to get 25% of your calories from protein (if you eat 2,000 calories a day, that’s 500 from protein).

Studies show that eating high amounts of protein may stress the kidneys as they work to eliminate the excess, which can also cause calcium loss.
