Fruits and Fiber

Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi
Fibrous fruits aid the digestion process in the body. The fruit skins are rich in dietary fiber, which is a major contributing factor in proper digestion and the excretion process of your body, while simultaneously keeping you safe from problems like gastritis and constipation. However, in some cases, the skin is thick, like in lemons, bananas, melons, and oranges, and cannot be consumed by humans. In those cases, the edible part or the flesh within the skin has plenty of fiber as well.

The fiber content in fruit not only has a brilliant laxative effect but also makes you feel full by adding bulk nutrition to the diet. Fibrous fruits also benefit conditions like heart diseases by reducing hyperlipidemia and hypertension, diabetes mellitus and obesity. Owing to this fibrous composition, fruits also have anti-carcionigenic properties, and are known to prevent colon cancer and fight bowel irregularity disorders.

Choosing a fitness trainer. Male or Female?

Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi

Getting in shape is the goal of many people all over the world. While some of them can do it alone, others need the help of a personal trainer. When you are in the process of choosing a trainer, you may wonder whether it is in your best interest to choose a male or a female. This article will explain why the latter is the best choice.

From A Female Perspective:
Going to the gym is something many women dread, especially after having children. It can be hard to face yourself in the shape you are in, which means it is so much harder to feel comfortable in front of others. Hiring a female personal trainer would make things a bit easier since they may be able to relate. Since the comfort level may be higher, this will increase the chances of you getting the most from your workout. There may be some exercises that will make you feel awkward and you may feel more comfortable discussing this with someone of the same sex.

The female body is not built the same as a man’s, which means that you cannot expect the same exercises to work for both sexes. While there are many male trainers out there that can help you just as much as a female, you may not feel confident enough in this theory to take a chance. The reality is that a female trainer will never second guess herself about the training she is giving you since she most likely employs the same methods as part of her own routine to stay fit. Again. it is important to know that males can be competent in this arena, yet it only makes sense to hire a female for this particular job.

From A Male Perspective:
Have you ever gone to the gym and felt inadequate because all of the men in the room are fit than you are? This is a good reason for you to consider a female personal trainer. While you may think it can affect a man to have a woman whip him into shape, this is a lot better than feeling silently defeated because your body is nowhere near as toned as the one of your male trainer. Yes, females can be just as fit, but there is that part of the male psyche that can accept that easier than the thought of being shown up by another guy.

Going to the gym is something that many guys look forward to, yet there are others that dread the entire idea. Sometimes it is a task to gain enough motivation to get you in the gym and work out. If you have a female personal trainer, you may feel an overwhelming need to impress her. Obviously, this should not be the main reason for hiring a female trainer. You should hire a trainer based on a number of different factors, mostly if there’s a good fit between you and the trainer. Many men find female personal trainers to be a bit less intimidating than their male counterparts, so they can feel free to let her know if they are doing something that is too much for him to handle. When training with another man, it is likely you will end up trying to grin and bear it.
There are several strong arguments that prove that it may be best for you to hire a female personal trainer. If you have any doubts, you can always try a few sessions to see if you like it. While this is not a decision for everyone, many who follow this advice will find that they are much more satisfied with the results.

As mentioned above, the process of hiring a trainer should be done with care – whether you hire a male or female trainer, make sure they have the proper credentials, experience, and qualifications.

    You may do without eating your dinner or lunch, but skipping on breakfast leads to heavy loss to your health including, de-braining. Eating breakfast improves your productivity at work and pushes you out of your sleepy-energy-conserving mode. A glass of juice, protein shake or chomping down a fruit is a good start to the day.

  2. Eat small-but-frequent meals

    In order to keep yourself energised and your blood glucose levels constant, it is important to keep up the fuel supply. Eating at regular intervals keeps you consistent and active through the day.

    When at work, it is obvious to get tired and to feel drowsy. Overindulging in our portion sizes causes our productivity levels to dip. Thus, keep your lunch small and compact.

    As you become dehydrated, the blood starts to thicken causing your heart to pump with difficulty. Hence, drinking plenty of water not only hydrates you but also eases transport of required nutrients throughout the body, keeping you energised.

  5. Eat enough fibre and Omega 3s
