7 things that can stand in the way of weight loss

Image
Certain habits can hinder your attempts to lose weight - and keep it away.
If you've changed your eating habits to focus on healthier foods and taken your workout seriously, you can expect to lose weight. However, the reality is that despite what you may have believed, weight loss is more complicated than calorie consumption versus calorie consumption. If you are trying to lose weight, check these habits that may interfere with your efforts.
1. You save on protein.
If you normally eat a muffin or avocado toast for breakfast, you may need to increase your protein intake. Research has shown that a high-protein breakfast can help alleviate hunger, so you may be less tempted to have a morning snack.
Protein is also important at lunch and dinner. If you routinely eat salads or sip gazpacho without accompanying protein - such as boiled egg, yogurt, beans, meat, poultry, or fish - over time, this can lead to a decrease in muscle tissue, which means that your metabolism will slow down and mak…

Do not wear a mask during exercise, says the WHO

Image
The World Health Organization says that wearing a mask during quarantine or bike rides can be harmful.
Health officials recommend wearing face masks outdoors and in crowded indoor areas to curb the spread of the novel corona virus. However, the important preventive measure during training is to keep a physical distance of at least one meter from others.
"People should NOT wear masks while exercising because masks can affect their ability to breathe comfortably," says WHO in its series of coronavirus mythbusters.
Exercise, especially running or jogging, increases heart and respiratory rate, and a mask can prevent enough oxygen from getting into a person's lungs. The lungs then work harder to get oxygen, which can cause drowsiness and dizziness.
In early May, there were reports of a jogger in Wuhan who ended up in a hospital after walking with a mask. One of the man's lungs had collapsed and needed surgery.
The hospital that later treated him advised against wearing masks d…

Image

Categorized as a benchmark workout, the Cindy WOD is "as iconic as CrossFit workouts come," says Tony Milgram CF-L1, coach at ICE NYC in New York. "It's one of the few workouts that almost every single CrossFitter in the world has done, and will repeat every few months to measure their progress."

Admittedly, that might sound a little intimidating.

Study: Using app to track diet, exercise during pregnancy led to better outcomes

Image
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A smartphone app could help improve the health of pregnant women.

A study in Frontiers in Endocrinology found that what they call continuous behavioral lifestyle intervention in pregnancy, assisted by a smartphone app, boosted both nutrition and exercise. Not only did women move more, they said they had more motivation to do more.

The findings of this study are based on data from 565 pregnant women who were overweight and obese. Those who used the app had better eating habits and consumed fewer calories from sugar, fat and salt compared to those who did not.


The app that was used was built as part of this study to assess the result, but it really shows you the power of accountability.

The authors of this study say this is more proof that monitoring intake leads to good outcomes for exercise and diet, and all of us, pregnant or not, might benefit if we are trying to improve our health.
