How much water should you drink in a day? The same old recommendation of drink 8 cups a day is still passed around these days. Some people even go as far as drinking one to two gallons. What if drinking large amounts of water is actually causing more harm than good?

So what’s a big reason why people gain weight as they age? -Poor metabolism. Studies show that overtime someone who does not strength train loses half a pound of muscle each year. That means over a ten-year period 5 pounds of muscle is lost. We know that muscle tissue has a positive effect on our metabolism, and as adults age and age, muscle tissue atrophies because there is a lack of resistance training and or challenging activity. Muscle tissue has a big effect on resting metabolic rate.

Every person, whether apparent to themselves or not, falls into one of these three categories: weight loss, weight maintenance, or weight gain. So metabolism is a very important word when it comes to our body weight. Many people wish to have a speedy metabolism, leading to a more lenient food intake or to speed up a weight loss goal. Our genetics have an impact on how fast or slow our metabolism is, but there are different things we can do to increase our metabolism.

More often than not, people are searching for fat loss.  That is their goal.  Sometimes the word “fat” can be a little harsh to some.  Thomas Cox, the founder of MealFit, says, “The worst thing we’ve done as a society is label someone as a macronutrient.  We literally call people fat.”  Fat is a harsh term because of what we have made it to be.  Now people prefer the term “weight” as in a goal of weight loss.  Weight can be a number of things.  Fat is fat.  So we need to d

Are you unable to make progress despite your spot on nutrition and active lifestyle? Are you stressed? Stress can cause irregular levels of Cortisol which is why we call it the "Stress Hormone".

Everybody get older. It’s a common experience and one that can be depressing to think about at times, but there’s no escaping it. There are, however, ways to age successfully, even into your 80’s and 90’s. Successful ageing is healthy ageing.
