Every weekend I publish a recap of the best health and fitness articles I’ve read over the past week. Here are some of my favorites.
Some good tips on buying cheaper fresh foods from places like Walmart and washing away the pesticides and other chemicals.
This one’s funny. Make sure you’re not one of “those” people 😀
I’m not a fan of seafood in any form. I don’t like crab, shrimp, sushi or anything. I can stomach a few things like Mahi Mahi, but I’d rather just eat something else. This article will be handy for me though because my fiance left behind several cans of tuna before going vegan and I have to eat them. I hope one of these recipes does the job.
This looks like a super-fun training program, but it would require the use of a boxing or MMA facility. He eats quite a bit, but trains hard. I would like to do a program like this at some point.
This is interesting because every one talks about the benefits of fish oil pills, but according to this report, based on many studies, fish oil has no benefits and might even lead to an increased risk in prostate cancer. I take fish oil pills daily myself, but after reading this, I may reconsider. I’ll be keeping my eye on this topic.
Rebecca Kelley is an awesome writer and is great inspiration as someone with extraordinary accomplishments in fitness. She works in the same industry as me, internet marketing, so I’ve been a fan of her writing for a long time. If you want to know why, read this post. It’s hilarious!
You should read this article if you’re considering becoming a vegetarian or vegan. It’s a common misconception that you can’t get the calories, protein and nutrients you need as an athlete or bodybuilder while on a vegetarian diet. There are alternatives. And speaking from experience, tempeh and seitan are delicious alternatives to meat if you find some good recipes 😀
If you’re not a fan of protein bars, make your own protein brownies or banana bread instead. The banana bread has 7.5g of protein, 13.6g of carbs, 1.2g of fat and 84 calories. The brownies have 7g of protein, 11g of carbs, 0.8g of fat and 81 calories. Those are some pretty good nutritional values for foods that are normally unhealthy.
