With a goal of losing weight, many Americans ask the same question: would weight training or cardiovascular training be more effective? The answer is easy – it’s both!

Vegetarian to Vegan - What are the Benefits?

Vegan diets are not a new option, but a lifestyle change that has received a resurgence in recent years. The term vegan was coined by Donald Watson in 1944 when he started the Vegan Society in England.

Working out without a clear goal in mind is like driving a car without a destination – not inherently wrong, but very difficult to measure progress or success. By determining precise, reasonable goals, every workout will have more purpose.

Top Vitamins & Foods to Eat to Stay Healthy During Flu Season

With all the holiday season food being consumed this time of year while flu season peaks, it becomes even more vital to balance our diets with foods and vitamins that will keep us hearty, happy, and healthy.

In the winter, our bodies receive fewer vital nutrients like sunlight. We lack the Vitamin D that comes from being in the sun, since we often opt to stay indoors to avoid the blistering cold. Coupled with being crammed together in malls, offices, homes and airports, our bodies can use a little boost to our natural defenses in warding off catching a cold or flu.

How Diet Impacts Mental Health
How Diet Impacts Mental Health

Nearly 1 in 4 Americans have some type of mental illness. The CDC says that by 2020, depression will rank as the second leading cause of disability, after heart disease. For this reason, the talk around town has more increasingly veered in the lane of improving mental health: how to reduce the stigmas associated with it, common risk factors, and what we all should do to ensure we stay mind-, body-, and spirit-healthy. Now we know there is evidence that suggests a direct and proven correlation between mental health and what we eat.

The idea of nutritional psychiatry was barely on the healthcare radar just a few years ago, and while there had been a few studies examining how certain supplements (like omega-3 fatty acids) might balance mood, supporting data was still lacking. Fast forward to 2018, and there now exists a broad spectrum of studies identifying diet as being as important to mental health as it is to physical health.
