Did you know?

According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, adults should keep added sugars to less than 10% of their total daily calories. For example, in a 2,000 daily calorie diet no more than 200 calories should come from added sugars.

Metabolic characteristics of keto-adapted ultra-endurance runners

This study highlights some of the false paradigms that exist within the study of human performance. I also think it sheds light on the potential for using metabolic adaptation to combat the common diseases of the 21st century.

Many successful ultra-endurance athletes have switched from a high-carbohydrate to a low-carbohydrate diet, but they have not previously been studied โ€ฆ

Collagen is an important protein for the development and maintenance of connective tissue, skin and blood vessels. Collagen has been steadily decreasing in the American diet as we consume less skin, bone broth, organ meats and eggs. Vitamin C is most well known as a potent antioxidant but it is also an essential component of collagen formation. Sailors who didnโ€™t get enough vitamin C developed scurvy which is now known to be a severe case of atherosclerosis that can cause hemorrhaging. Carnivorous and most omnivorous animals can synthesize their own vitamin C while humans cannot. The more oxidative stress a person has, the more vitamin C is needed. It is a water soluble vitamin so overdosing from food sources is not a concern. Some of the best nutritional sources of vitamin C are cruciferous vegetables and citrus fruits. Be careful with orange juice however as it contains a lot of sugar.

Wellness is a holistic integration of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, fueling the body, engaging the mind, and nurturing the spirit (1). Although it alw...

Sleep is more important for our overall health than we think. It can affect your mood, cognitive funcion, and overall health

In the inaugural issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (2005), a feature article1 traced early milestones in the developing field of sleep medicine, which slowly emerged from the older field of sleep research during the 1970s and 1980s. Sleep medicine, the article noted, was closely linked...

Chronic stress is failure to deal with stress for a long time. Thus, you can be stressed but be so used to it that you donโ€™t even realize you are stressed, I know I have totally experienced this๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ.
Extended and constant feelings of stress can lead to life-threatening problems. From hypertension, heart diseases, decreased immunity, loss of sociability, and decreased mental vitality.

Here are a few easy options to help manage stress:
~listen to your favorite music
~talk about it with someone you trust
~eating right (yes you read that correctly)
~be mindful and acknowledge the stress
~exercise (endorphins are your friend lol)
~get good quality of sleep
