At Muscle Wellness, we believe in healthy living and a strong body before weight loss – we’re after strong, lean physiques and happy, healthy athletes. But sometimes weight loss is part of the plan to get on the road to a healthier lifestyle and optimal fitness regime. And as part of an overall fitness plan, it can be an essential step to getting the body you want and deserve.
At Muscle Wellness, we believe in healthy eating to achieve a lean and strong physique. And we know that, from supplements to organic products, you care enough about what you put into your body to do the same. That’s why we’re invested in researching and developing only the best products, and in educating ourselves and our clients about the best super foods and healthiest options out there.
Want to get the weight off (and keep it off) this festive season? Remember, good fitness is about strength and good health, supported by a balanced diet (and proper supplementation) rather than just pure weight loss. With that in mind, we’ve put together some practical tips for achieving your weight loss goals while staying sane.
You love to work out but life is busy or you might be going through a stressful patch at work and you’re a little more tired than usual. Besides ruling out any medical reasons for a lack of energy, there are a few things you can do to give yourself that much-need pre-workout energy boost (and get the most of our your workout).
At Muscle Wellness, we believe in approaching fitness from a holistic perspective, with a diet rich in healthy super foods, superior whey products, and top quality supplements, designed to boost your health and energy levels. We know that a balanced diet with the correct supplementation is key to helping you achieve your fitness goals. That’s why we’re crazy about super foods. And today, we’re looking at the world’s first cultivated super food – flax seeds.
Life is busy and if you’re finding the time to work out regularly or if you’re training for a big fitness goal like a competition, we applaud you. We also understand what it takes to get a full workout on a regular basis if you have other commitments. And who doesn’t?
All things chocolate are bad for you, right? Well, not necessarily. The truth is that chocolate candy bars (what we think of first when we think of chocolate) are bad for you but not because of the cacao that gives the bar its chocolate flavour but because of the added sugar. Refined sugar is what makes chocolates unhealthy. Plus, when the cocoa is roasted to make the chocolate, antioxidant flavonoids and beneficial enzymes are lost due to being heated. So that makes a chocolate bar a no-no when it comes to healthy eating.
Who doesn’t love a little (or more) sugar? Even the fitness of athletes experience cravings for something sweet now and again. And, we know that, when you’re having a tough day, it can be hard to put those cravings aside and focus on a more balanced diet – one essential to a healthy fitness plan.
You love working out and know that it’s good for you but sometimes it gets a little tough to motivate yourself to stick to your exercise and diet plan. Stress at home and at work can leave you feeling tired and uninspired and your fitness plan in the dust. What do you need? Motivation.
Morning school run, back-to-back work meetings, errands... sometimes life feels like one big race. This makes it difficult to eat well and stay healthy. The key to making sure you aren’t starving and snacking on junk food by the time the day is done is preparation.
You work out, you care about your body, and you enjoy your gym sessions... you’re fit but you’re not a professional athlete. Plus you’re super-busy every day and, while you care about the food you eat, you don’t always have time to make the perfect meals. Do you need to take supplements too?
