Maintaining an Exercise Regimen During Pregnancy

When you are pregnant, you may be afraid to keep up with your exercise program. However, exercise during pregnancy can actually be beneficial for you, and in turn, your unborn baby. This article will look at some advice for healthy exercise for both you and your baby.

If you were active and exercised regularly before pregnancy, you can keep it up even after you are pregnant. However, it is normal, natural, and healthy to gain weight while you are pregnant, so it is not a good idea to exercise to lose weight while with child. Also, if you hardly exercised before your pregnancy, your body is not in its prime shape to pick up an extreme exercise regimen when you become pregnant.

However, because there are a number of benefits to exercise, you should not automatically give up and use pregnancy as your excuse to not participate in a little cardio. You just need to take it slowly, and build up your capacity for exercise. Of course, you can only build up to a certain point, as intense exercise in your later trimesters can be harmful.

Workouts that cause you to work up a sweat and make your heart work can be really helpful for a soon-to-be mother. Being in shape and having strong muscles can help you have an easier delivery and aids you in getting your pre-baby body back faster once you have your child. Before the birth, exercise can help ease your constipation, give you a glowing look, keep your joints lubricated, increase your energy level, and help your body aches.

Although there are all of these benefits to exercise, you should listen to your body and your doctor if they is telling you that exercise is not right for you. Things such as high blood pressure, false contractions, spotting, and ruptures of your amniotic fluid are signs that you should stop exercising and contact your doctor.

There are a number of activities out there that can help a pregnant woman stay in shape and healthy during her term. Cardio is a great option, but you should try to avoid bouncing. Thus, many women turn to swimming, yoga, pilates, and walking. If you were an avid runner pre-pregnancy, you may be able to keep up your habit, at least in moderation and for a little while. Walking is a good alternative to running as well. Swimming helps a woman feel light and more graceful because it induces a feeling of weightlessness.

Overall, when you are expecting a baby, you shouldn’t expect to completely stop your workouts, unless ordered by a doctor. Remember, moderation and safety is key to keeping both you and your unborn child healthy. Listen to your body, and dial back intensity as needed.

Sometimes, overexertion can lead to problems with your baby. If you asked your doctor about exercising while pregnant and he did not outline a safe program for you, leading to damage to your child, this may count as medical malpractice.

Health and Fitness Expert Samir Becic Promotes Water to the World During an Extreme Workout


Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 22, 2015

World renowned health and fitness expert Samir Becic, founder of nonprofit Health Fitness Revolution, created an original video in which he reveals one of the key elements to a healthy lifestyle: drink plenty of water on a daily basis. His video message, which was done during his extreme treadmill workout, was created in an effort to motivate Americans to drink more water in order to stay healthy and fit. In the video, he explains how sufficient amounts of water can boost the immune system, reduce your hunger levels, promote weight loss, improve hydration and give you younger, healthier looking skin.

The extreme video features Becic doing stunts not recommended for the public, jogging backwards and changing directions on a treadmill while simultaneously talking about the key benefits of drinking water.

“The rate at which Americans are becoming overweight and obese is increasing at an alarming rate,” Becic said. “The vast majority of Americans are living an unhealthy lifestyle and battling health conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. But the good news is that 60 to 70 percent of those diseases can be prevented or controlled by living a healthy lifestyle. And one of the first and most basic principles to being healthier is drinking sufficient amounts of water.

“Two-thirds of the human body is made of water. Every cell in our body requires water to function, survive and thrive. This is why it is so important to consume at least 10 to 12 glasses into our system a day, but I recommend increasing that number to really get the wide ranging benefits of water in your body.”

Approximately 70 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated and often mistake feelings of thirst for feelings of hunger. In addition, lack of a sufficient amount of water intake is the No. 1 trigger of daily fatigue. Becic recommends drinking a large glass of water upon waking in the morning due to the fact that the body goes through a period of dehydration overnight. Drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning can also boost the digestive and metabolic systems.

In addition to the benefits mentioned in the video, other benefits include improved sleep, higher energy levels and reduced risk of kidney stones.

Avenidas Encourages Discussing Elderly Care During the Holidays

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2014

The holiday season is here, and that means it’s time for many families to come together, especially those that live far away. Sometimes, holiday visits can be an eye-opener to changes in a loved one’s condition and health needs. Avenidas encourages family members to take the necessary steps to give loved ones the proper care and help that they need.

Seniors often downplay their challenges, so loved ones may not be aware of the challenges they are facing until they see them in person. Many older adults fear the loss of their independence and worry about becoming a burden on their families. It’s important to be open with loved ones about the care they need and decide on a solution that works best for everyone.

The Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center offers affordable daytime care for aging parents, spouses and loved ones. It is both an adult day care and an adult day health center. Loved ones enrolled in the adult day care program enjoy transportation, exercise, activities and socializing.

The facility offers older adults the safe and comfortable environment that they need, with proper supervision and stimulating activities. Avenidas supports participants with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke and other chronic conditions.

This holiday season, everyone should make sure their loved ones are getting the care they need to live safely and comfortably. For more information about Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center, visit http://www.avenidas.org/services/senior-day-health-center.

Liporidex is the Healthy Trick to Keeping Weight Off During the Holidays

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

The holidays are officially here and Americans nationwide are taking advantage of a new tool in the fight to easily keep the pounds off. Weight conscious celebrities, athletes and fitness professionals are all using Liporidex, a new, breakthrough product that’s already brought lasting success to thousands of people.

When product creator, Emeka Okwuje, MD, a lifelong athlete and expert of human physiology, was struggling with his own weight, he discovered that the current prescription and OTC options on the market were woefully inadequate – they were neither safe nor effective. Frustrated with what was available, and shocked by the low margin of safety that many products on the market had, he felt compelled to create his own. Based on his clinical experience and love for health and fitness, Liporidex was born.

Liporidex are the world’s first family of synergistically combined, all natural, MD formulated fitness enhancing formulas that are so safe and effective that they can be used consistently every day for months without raising safety concerns.

Dr. Okwuje dedicated years researching how natural ingredients could effectively induce safe and meaningful weight loss. What he found in part accounts for the incredible success of its users. When asked about how Liporidex fans achieve these fantastic results, he shared, “It’s important to remember that there’s no such thing as a magic pill. Those who are having great success have done the tough work themselves, and I’m so very proud of each and every one. All that we did was develop a safe and effective tool that’s able to make their journey easier while maximizing their results. Liporidex makes it uncomplicated to stick to reduced calorie diets, boost your metabolism and give you extra energy.”

One such success story is that of Evalyn’s. Shortly after Christmas 2012, what started out as any typical day for Evalyn quickly took a turn for the worse as her husband suffered a sudden cardiac arrest while relaxing in his recliner. Evalyn had to think quickly, call 911, and perform CPR on her husband.

Like so many Americans, Evalyn struggled with the motivation and determination to lose weight. But, it wasn’t until her husband’s heart attack that Evalyn truly took a serious look at her own health and the importance of reducing her own weight. With the combination of Liporidex and daily walks, Evalyn lost over 100 pounds.

Liporidex is a revolutionary brand and product. It is an innovative and emphatic answer to those who have struggled with weight loss. The result is a base of passionate customers that rely on Liporidex’s effectiveness to enhance their lives. Shortly after the first dose is absorbed, the all-natural compounds go to work; helping increase metabolism, decrease appetite and ultimately reducing one’s weight and fat content.

Those struggling with weight loss need to make a change immediately, for their health’s sake. Motivation is everything, and Liporidex can help motivate those that need it, to lose weight and focus on the things that matter most to them. Whether for the holidays or after, taking a step towards improving your health now will pay off later, and the only thing one has to lose by trying Liporidex is that excess weight they’ve been carrying around.

Dukan Diets Head Nutritionist Simone Gloger Offers Tips to Help Dieters Maintain and Even Lose Weight During the Holiday Season


New York, NY (PRWEB) November 25, 2014

During the holiday season when festive dishes packed with carbohydrates and fat are typically offered in abundance, it’s very easy for dieters to cheat, overindulge and pack on the pounds. According to Simone Gloger, head nutritionist for the best selling Dukan Diet, when it comes to dieting successfully during the holidays it’s important to plan head, make healthy choices and focus on eating Dukan-friendly lean protein and vegetables, but to still enjoy yourself.

The Dukan Diet is a lean protein, low-fat, low carb diet that encourages dieters to eat real foods in order to reach and maintain their True Weight. Dieters can eat as much lean protein and vitamin rich vegetables from a list of 100 approved foods until they are full, no weighing food or counting calories. Since the Dukan Diet allows dieters to enjoy lean protein and vegetables, many popular holiday dishes are already Dukan-friendly such as turkey, fish and vegetable dishes. You can also modify recipes to make them Dukan-friendly such as making mashed cauliflower or turnips instead of mashed potatoes, or making a pumpkin pie without the crust.

Here are fives tips from Gloger for sticking to your diet during the holidays:

Don’t Skip Meals: This is the time for work parties, gathering with friends and big family dinners where you know there will be endless food options, many of which are not on your approved diet! Skipping meals to save up for these calories later in the day is not the solution and could potentially lead to headache, fatigue and of course over eating. The key is to eat small meals or snacks throughout the day that are high in protein and low in fat so you can eat as much as you want, get full and not over indulge later on.

Trim Back On The Trimming: Most traditional holiday dishes are really not that unhealthy, but adding in all the additional trimmings to the dishes are what make the calories add up. Simply eliminate extras such as gravy, cream sauces, butter and crust on pies and most all of the bad calories and fat are gone!

Plan The Attack: Before you even grab a plate and start piling on your favorite holiday foods you look forward to all year round, browse your options and pick out which items are the healthiest and then choose just a few items that you want to indulge in. Planning before you actually start piling on the food allows you not to be rushed into making bad eating choices and makes you more aware of exactly what options you have to work with.

Focus on the Main Dishes: We always spend hours planning and cooking the main dish at holiday dinner’s such as the turkey or ham but end up eating more of the sides like bread, potatoes and stuffing, which are typically the least healthy items. Eliminate some of these unhealthy smaller dishes and instead cook a few additional main dishes such as a fish, roast or grilled chicken, which have more protein and will fill you up more, leaving less room for side dishes. Plus, these main dishes are better for leftovers!

Keep Up Your Healthy Habits: In addition to watching what you eat, its also important to stay on top of your other healthy habits like daily walking and exercise, as well as making sure to drink plenty of water. Doing this will help keep you in your healthy routine and you are more likely to succeed and not gain those few extra unwanted pounds during the holidays.
