Chair Workouts for Great Legs

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Thu, Mar 05, 2015 @ 01:00 PM


When we think of lifting weights, we often think of bench pressing and curls, but it’s important to keep your lower body in mind. Mixing up your routine to hit a variety of muscle groups throughout the week will help keep you in shape, without overusing any specific muscle. Fitness experts agree, incorporating 1-2 sessions of leg workouts per week is a great way to build up lean muscle mass and burn fat! Here are a few of our favorite leg exercises that you can incorporate into your next session.


  • Chair Squats

This is a great place to start for chair exercises and segue into the world of squats! To do this, stand in front of the chair as if you were going to sit down. Point your arms straight out in front of you, parallel to the ground, with your palms facing down. Slowly push your hips back, bend at the knee, and sit down. Before you get too comfortable, stand back up and return to the starting position. Try 15 reps!


  • Heel Taps

Time to give your quads a good burn! Face the front of the chair, standing about 2-3 feet away. Keeping your right leg straight, slowly swing it forward and tap your heel on the seat of the chair, and then return to starting position. Try 10-15 of these before switching legs.


  • V Position

With this move, you get to channel your inner ballerina! Stand behind the chair and use it for balance. Put your feet in a V position with your heels together. Lift your heels off the ground and bend at the knees. Slowly lower your hips and lift back up. Try 10-15 reps.


  • Step Ups

Only do this exercise with a sturdy chair, and enough headroom to stand on it! In this workout, imagine your chair as a large step. Stand facing the front of the chair. Leading with your right foot, step completely onto the chair and bring your left foot up as well. Again leading with your right foot, step back down to return to the starting position. Try 10 of these leading with the right foot, and then try 10 leading with the left!


  • Toe Taps

This is a great way to get your legs moving and your heart racing a bit as well! Stand facing the front of the chair about a foot away. Lift your right foot and lightly tap your toe on the seat. Bring you foot back down, and then go through the same motion with the left foot. Increase your speed as you gain confidence and balance! Try this for 15 reps.


It’s important to change up your workout routine throughout the week to avoid a fitness plateau. Incorporating exercises with different muscle groups is the best way to maximize your results! Warmer weather is just around the corner, and for many of us that means beach season! Mixing in a few of these leg exercises is a great way to get your legs in shape at home, without the extra equipment!


In addition to a regular fitness and reduced-calorie diet plan, we recommend that you check out Meratrim® for help with your weight management! Meratrim was shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management. Research data shows that Meratrim may help people reach their weight loss goals in as little as two weeks. The studies also showed that participants receiving Meratrim instead of the placebo steadily experienced better weight loss over an eight-week period.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas Under 300 Calories

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Wed, Mar 04, 2015 @ 06:00 AM

 

Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day. Fueling your body with a balance of healthy foods is a great way to get your metabolism revved up and burning calories throughout the day. Choosing the right foods is important. The breakfast market is flooded with sugary cereals and beverages that will only bog you down with a sugar crash. Let’s take a look at a few healthy options for healthy breakfast ideas under 300 calories!


  • Egg sandwich

Looking for a hearty handheld breakfast? Look no further! Start by scrambling one egg and place it on a toasted English muffin with a small sprinkle of cheese. Add a few leaves of raw spinach, cooked peppers, and some hot sauce to pack this sandwich full of flavor. This is sure to please your tastebuds!


  • Greek Yogurt and Fruit

If you’re in the mood for a smooth start to the day, a serving of plain greek yogurt is the way to go! Greek yogurt is packed with protein, calcium, and vitamin B-12, which is great for keeping you fueled-up through the morning. Partner this with a banana or a peach for some natural sweetness and extra nutrients.


  • Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to take with you on the go! In a blender, throw in 8 ounces of nonfat milk, a half cup of frozen strawberries, and a banana. Blend it up until the consistency is smooth. Pour it into a cup, and you’re on your way! This blend of protein and fruit will help satisfy your taste buds, while remaining true to your fitness plan!


  • Breakfast Burrito

Would you believe that you can have a delicious breakfast burrito under 300 calories? You absolutely can! Scramble one egg with a few red, yellow or green peppers. Place them on a medium-sized (7”) whole wheat tortilla. Roll it up and cover it with a few tablespoons of salsa, as well as hot sauce if you are looking for a kick.


  • Waffle Berry Taco

You’re going to love this. Cook up a whole grain waffle according to the packaged directions. Lightly spread some natural peanut butter on the waffle, and top it with raspberries, blueberries, and/or strawberries. Lightly fold it, as you would a taco, and enjoy! You can even have a second one for under the 300 calorie mark!


Don’t sell your body short by skipping breakfast. It’s a wonderful meal! Choosing the right foods can help set the course for a healthy and more productive day. Partner any of these with a tall glass of water and your body will be happy!


When trying to lose weight, we recommend looking into a natural supplement like LOWAT®. LOWAT is a patent-pending weight management ingredient consisting of Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed extracts that has been clinically studied to support a healthy weight loss. You can lose the weight.

5 Tips to Find 15 Minutes For Fitness

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Tue, Mar 03, 2015 @ 07:55 AM

If you’re like most people, you live a busier life than you’d like. Between all the activities you have if your daily routine, it often seems impossible to find time for anything else. The good news is that even 15 minutes is enough time to get in some physical activity. Still think you’re too busy? Here are a few ways to find 15 extra minutes in your day to workout!

1. Get up and going!

Perhaps the best way to ensure you find some extra time to workout, is to simply get up and get going a little earlier! It’s easier than you may think! Try setting your alarm 15 minutes earlier than usual for two weeks. Use the time to get in some core exercises or a work out with a fitness DVD! Before you know it, waking up 15 minutes earlier will be an easy part of your routine!

 

2. Move over lunch!

We’re not telling you to skip lunch! Everybody’s got to eat, but have you ever thought to use your lunch break for fitness? If your schedule allows for it, eat your lunch while you work, so you can free up your lunch break! Most employers give 30-60 minute lunch breaks. Use the time to walk around the block or squeeze in a yoga session!

 

3. Get off the couch!

According to a recent Nielsen report, the average American spends over 5 hours per day watching TV! Even if you don’t watch as much as the average person, we all spend more time on the couch than we should. For starters, try skipping a TV show that you don’t really care to watch. During that time, you can easily sneak in some physical activity.

 

If you only have one free hour in the evening, but it happens to coincide with your favorite TV show, put off the show until the weekend. Nowadays, nearly every show is available on demand for people who miss the original airing. This gives you the freedom to add physical activity to your evening routine, while still enjoying your show a few days later!

 

4. Move while you cook!

You’ve prepared a delicious dinner and popped it in the oven. Instead of sitting idle while your meal cooks, use the time to get some cardio in on the stairs. Just be sure to set a timer, so you don’t forget about your food!

 

5. Set a daily blackout!

With all of the distractions around us, it’s a wonder how anything ever get’s done! Set a 15-30 minute blackout period in your home where no TVs, computers, or phones are allowed. Turn on some upbeat music and get moving in your living room! Mix in a few sets of jumping jacks, push-ups, and dance moves for a cardio session at home!


Time is one of those things we never seem to have enough of. The good news is that you can get in a mini workout session with only 15 minutes! Even better, if you combine a few of these tips in a single day, you’ll be getting even more physical activity!


In addition to regular physical activity and healthy eating habits, we recommend a natural supplement for those who are looking to lose weight. Meratrim® is a natural supplement that was shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management. Research data shows that Meratrim may help people reach their weight-management goals in as little as two weeks!

5 Ways to Eat The Mighty Avocado

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Sun, Mar 01, 2015 @ 08:18 AM

Avocados are a versatile and delicious food that is often overlooked. The truth is, they are known to be a nutritional powerhouse! They are high in fiber, potassium, healthy fat, and vitamins B6 and C. This is a recipe for a great food that will help you stay full and satisfied. Let’s take a look at a few ways to eat avocado.

 

Plain and Simple

Perhaps the easiest way to eat an avocado is by itself! Split it with a friend, or cut it in half and save the other half for later. One half of an avocado is about 160 calories with 7g of fiber, making this a great snack between meals!

 

Sandwich Spread

Ditch the mayo! That’s right sub out the unhealthy mayo and bring in the avocado! Start by peeling your avocado and chop it into pieces. Put the pieces into a small bowl and mash them up with a fork. Season it up lightly with a splash of lemon juice and a pinch of salt, and you’re good to go! Lightly spread it on your favorite healthy sandwich and store the rest in the fridge for next time!

 

Salad Topper

Not all salads are created equal. Finding a balance between good taste and good nutrition is often a challenge. Avocados help bridge the gap! Whip up your favorite healthy salad recipe, but instead of putting any cheese on top, try a few slices of avocado.

 

Burger Fixing

Firing up the grill with friends and family? Set out your typical condiments and toppings as you normally would, but this time include slices of avocado. You’ll be surprised how popular it is! This is a great way to liven up your typical burger while adding some key nutrients to your meal! Want to make it even healthier? Swap out the beef patty for a black bean patty and you’ll have a delicious new take on a familiar food!

 

Salsa

Give your meal a new flair with some avocado-based salsa! Dice up a tomato, red pepper, yellow pepper, and avocado, and you’ve got a delicious and nutritious salsa! Put this on top of some whole wheat crackers for a snack, or try it on top of your favorite healthy Mexican-style entree!


No matter how you cut it, avocados are a delicious and nutritious food! Try mixing it into a few of your snacks and recipes to give your taste buds a nice variety! In addition to healthy eating and regular exercise, we recommend a natural supplement like Meratrim® when trying to lose weight. Meratrim was shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management. Research data shows that Meratrim may help people reach their weight-management goals in as little as two weeks. You can lose the weight; Meratrim can help!

Burn the Fat With Meratrim® and 7-Keto®

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Sat, Feb 28, 2015 @ 08:30 AM

 

In Physical Magazine’s latest “Physical’s Guide to Fat Burners”, the magazine discusses a few tips to burning fat. Two products that they suggest are Meratrim® and 7-Keto®.  What’s the best way to burn fat? And how can these products help? 

 

Fuel Your Body:

Before anything, it’s important to evaluate the food that you are putting into your body. There are countless fad diets out there, but the truth is that many of them aren’t good for your body. Instead, start by clearing processed food out your kitchen. Chips, candy, and cookies are usually a go-to for mindless snacking. Clear them out of the kitchen! Also, cut out carbs such as white pasta and white bread. Fill your pantry with natural foods that are rich in nutrients to ensure that you are fueling your body with what it needs.


Get Moving:

Next, take a look at your exercise plan. How often are you active? It’s recommended that you are active no less than 30 minutes per day, five days per week. Spend time doing cardio, as well as strength training to get the most out of your workout. Varying your workout will help you avoid a fitness plateau and keep your body burning fat.


Supplements:

When striving for personal fitness, sometimes you just need some extra help. Natural supplements are a great way to fuel your body with and give you an extra edge. In Physical Magazine’s, “Physical’s Guide to Fat Burners”, they discuss the benefits of both Meratrim and 7-Keto! Here’s why the products are a valuable asset to your fitness plan.

 

Meratrim®

Meratrim increases adiponectin levels, a protein hormone that helps to break down fat. It’s a proprietary blend of two plant extracts, Sphaeranthus indicus flower heads and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind, which affect fat-cell formation and breakdown. In randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies, data shows that Meratrim may help people reach their weight-management goals in as little as two weeks.

 

7-Keto®

7-Keto is a metabolite that has been extensively studied in animals and humans for various benefits including weight, metabolic rate, memory and others. It has been studied in randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research to support loss of body weight 2.9x better than placebo after eight weeks. Research lead by Dr. Kalman demonstrates a significant weight loss of around 6 lbs was seen at week eight. 7-Keto maintains a metabolic rate over a 7-day period compared to placebo when reducing calories.


There are many things you can do to help lose weight and trim fat. However, making positive life changes is always more effective than fad diets. The best changes you can make are eating a reduced-calorie diet, increasing your physical activity, and adding a natural supplement such as Meratrim or 7-Keto.

It’s Time For Your Resolution Check-Up!

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Fri, Feb 27, 2015 @ 09:00 AM

 

For many people, new healthy habits can be a natural routine in as little as 21 days. While everyone is different, it’s about that time of year where new years fitness resolutions have either taken form as a part of the routine, or may have been broken. If you’ve had a bit of trouble sticking with it, this post is for you! It’s never too late to jump back on the wagon and make this your year! Here’s a road map to get you back on track with your fitness resolutions.


  • Forgive and forget. First and foremost, if you want to get back on track, you need to let go of the hurdles behind you. Instead, focus on where you want to be. Forget what happened last month, let’s focus on this month!

  • Reassess the big picture. How big was your resolution? While it’s good to be ambitious, a main reason people give up on resolutions is because the goal seems too large. Instead of committing to the gym seven days per week, try three. If you made a resolution to lose 40 pounds this year, try 20. The smaller goal will seem more attainable, and you may feel more motivated!

  • Set smaller goals. Now that we have reassessed the resolution, take a moment to think about smaller, more manageable goals to help you along the way. Think of it like this, your resolution is the masterpiece, and smaller goals are the individual brush strokes. They go hand in hand.

  • If your big goal is to lose 30 lbs, focus on a smaller goal of 1 lb per week. If you’d like to run a marathon, start by committing to run 5-10 miles per week, and adding a mile each week. Whatever your goal may be, break it up into smaller pieces and you will feel more motivated every step of the way!

  • Buddy up! One of the best motivation tricks is to team up with a fitness buddy. Not only is it a great way to hold each other accountable, you are also able to celebrate success, share struggles, and work through things together! Be sure to find someone who shares similar fitness goals so you are both on the same page.

  • Join a class! A wide variety of fitness classes are offered at most gyms these days. You can find anything from hip hop aerobics, kickboxing, spinning, yoga -- you name it! Find one that sparks your interest and give it a shot! Signing up for a class will help motivate you to get moving because you’ve made a commitment to set aside time. Also, being a part of a class with like-minded people will help keep you inspired!

  • Start journaling today! If you’re not keeping a personal journal about your fitness, start today! A journal is a great way to keep track of your daily food consumption, physical activity and sleep schedule, as well as how those things affect the way you feel. Keeping an accurate record may help you pinpoint a few things that are sabotaging your fitness success. Adjust accordingly, and you will be on the right track for hitting your goals!

  • Try a natural supplement! Along with a reduced-calorie diet and moderate exercise plan, a natural supplement like Meratrim® could be just what you need to help you reach your fitness goals. Meratrim® was shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management.

Research data shows that Meratrim® may help people reach their weight management goals in as little as two weeks. The studies also showed that participants receiving Meratrim instead of the placebo steadily experienced better weight loss over an eight-week period.

It’s important to reevalute your health and fitness a few times per year to make sure that your daily habits are assisting you in the right direction. If you’ve found yourself off the resolution wagon, it’s never too late to jump back on! With these tips, your goals can still be within reach. You could be looking back six months from now, happy that you decided to give it another shot! You can do this.

7 Plank Exercises That You Need to Try

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Wed, Feb 25, 2015 @ 07:00 AM


Yoga is a widely popular exercise used to benefit both the mind and body. Many believe that it’s the best way to reset and realign. Although it gained popularity in the mid 20th century, Yoga has been around for thousands of years. One of the most popular poses is the plank.  It's a great way to tone up your core abdomen muscles using just your bodyweight. Let’s go through a few of our favorite variations of this popular pose.


Before You Start

Safety is important. Make sure that you have enough room with no obstacles within reach. It’s best to practice yoga on a non-slippery surface, such as a yoga mat or carpet. We also recommend wearing gym shoes so your feet won’t slip! Let’s get started!

1. The Beginner Plank

If you are completely new to planking, here’s the best place to start. With this exercise, start on your knees, with your knees about six inches apart. As you keep your body straight, carefully place your elbows on the ground. Your weight should be supported by your elbows and knees. Don’t dip your hips, and focus on keeping your spine straight. Tighten your abdomen muscles and hold that position for 30-60 seconds.

 

2. The Elbow Plank

The elbow plank is one of the most common forms of planking. To perform this, go down to the floor on your elbows and knees, like the previous plank, but this time put your toes to the ground and lift your knees. Your body weight should be held off the ground by your elbows and toes, with your body straight. Try not to dip, sway, or fluctuate. Hold this pose steady with your abdominals tight for 30-60 seconds.

 

3. The Straight Arm Plank

This one will get your abs going! To try this plank, go down to the ground in the push-up position. Hands should be about shoulder-width apart. Keep your body straight, without dipping or raising your hips. Tighten your abdominals and hold the pose for 30-60 seconds.

 

4. The Up/Down Plank

Now we’re really going to have some fun! With this plank exercise, we add an element of movement to target your core! Start by getting into elbow plank position. Once in position, with good form, move into a straight arm plank by lifting off your right elbow and replacing it with your right hand, then do the same with the left. Once set into your straight arm plank, revert to your elbow plank by lifting off your right hand, replacing it with your right elbow, and then the same with your left. Start slow, and ensure that you are practicing good form with your body straight. Don’t dip your hips or knees. Once you’re comfortable, you will be able to go through the motions fairly quickly and with a fluid motion. Try ten up/down reps!

 

5. The Side Plank

Looking for an exercise to tone up the love handles? Here’s a great one for you! Side planks are a great way to target your core and more specifically your oblique (side) muscles. To try this, lay on your right side with your legs together. Now put your right elbow to the ground and use it to lift and support your body. Keep your body straight, with your body weight supported by your right foot and elbow. Hold for 30-60 seconds, and then try the other side!

 

6. Side Plank Dips

Looking to give your sides a good burn? Try this! Start in right side plank position, as described above. Once you’re in position with good form, slowly dip your right hip down and back up into position. You can let your hip lightly tap the ground but don’t use it to support your weight. Try ten reps, and then switch sides.

 

7. Leg Lift Planks

Leg lift planks are a great way to add variation! Start in the elbow plank position. Once you are in position with good form, slowly lift your right leg 12 inches off the ground and lower it back down. Now try it with the left. Be sure to reestablish your position between each rep fully. These can also be done with the straight arm or side planks as well!


Planks are just scraping the surface of the many exercises you can do at home with virtually no equipment! If you are looking to slim down your waist and add definition to your abs, planking should be your go-to exercises!


When trying to trim inches and slim down, we also recommend Meratrim®! Meratrim® is a natural supplement shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management. The studies also showed that participants receiving Meratrim® instead of the placebo steadily experienced better weight loss over an eight-week period. You can lose the weight and Meratrim® can help!

Fitness Begins in the Kitchen

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Sat, Feb 21, 2015 @ 09:00 AM

You’ve heard the phrase “fitness begins in the kitchen”, right? The truth is, most of your personal fitness stems back to what you put in your body. This of your body as a machine. Of course, you can function with different types of “fuel”, however, to be at the top of your game you should only be fueled up with foods that serve your body well. Let’s take a look at ten foods you should be consuming on a regular basis.

 

  1. Broccoli is one of the best foods for your body. Just one cup of steamed broccoli can pack in over 100% of your daily vitamin C, as well as a handful of other nutrients. Also, you can enjoy loads of broccoli without guilt, as one cup harbors less than half a gram of fat and only 35 calories!


  1. Eggs are a great way to fuel your body. With 6g of protein, just one egg with your morning piece of fruit can be enough to hold you over through the morning. Keep portion sizes in mind, however, as two eggs can put you over your suggested daily cholesterol.


  1. Spinach is the ultimate low-calorie source of valuable nutrients. In just one cup of raw spinach, you will be fueled with over 50% of your suggested daily vitamin A, along with a fair share of vitamin C and other nutrients! You can also enjoy spinach knowing that a one-cup serving will only run you 7 calories!


  1. Black beans pack a nutritional punch! Not only are they an incredible source of protein, but you can also feel good about the iron and fiber! Mix a serving in with some brown rice and salsa for a delicious Mexican-style dish. You can also try subbing in different types of beans, as many have excellent nutritional value.


  1. Salmon is a delicious way to pack in a load of nutrients. First of all, a half filet of wild-caught salmon can provide as much as 40g of protein! In addition, salmon also offers a large dose of vitamin B6, B12, and potassium. Put this on a plate with some healthy veggies!


  1. Walnuts are a delicious source of omega-3 fatty acids. The protein, in combination with healthy fats, make this a perfect snack to hold you over between meals. Keep a small pack with you at work to keep you from reaching for the candy bowl!


  1. Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants. A one cup serving offers about 25% of your daily suggested vitamin C, as well as 14% of your daily dietary fiber! Mix a few in with some nonfat Greek yogurt for a delicious start to your morning.


  1. Quinoa has been around for ages but has gained widespread popularity over the past few years. Quinoa is one of the most nutritious foods in the world, as it offers a notable amount of nutrition including fiber, protein, vitamin B, and potassium! It should be a go-to item in your kitchen!


  1. Avocados are an excellent source of vitamin B6, C, potassium, and fiber! Although it’s often used in guacamole, avocados can be used without extra ingredients as a healthy spread on sandwiches or whole wheat crackers.


  1. Edamame makes for a perfect snack in the kitchen or on the go! Belonging to the legume family, Edamame is a soybean boiled or steamed in the pods. A one cup serving of these can fill you with 17 grams of protein, as well as an impressive amount of dietary fiber, iron, magnesium, and other vitamins. Cook up a batch and keep them on hand at the office!


No matter how much physical activity you pack into your day, it can all be null and void without the proper nutrition. Fueling your body with the right foods can make a world of difference in your physical fitness!


In addition to a healthy diet and moderate exercise, we recommend that you look into our natural supplement 7-Keto®. 7-Keto is a metabolite that has been extensively studied for various benefits including weight, metabolic rate, memory and others.  In randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research, 7-Keto has shown to support loss of body weight 2.9x better than placebo after eight weeks.
