Exercise Easier to Drop Weight Faster

Health conscious individuals understand the importance of regular exercise to assist natural weight loss goals and to improve all critical parameters of health. A well sculpted body is usually a sign of somebody who eats properly, stays healthy and has a long term investment in their own longevity. Many people find following a regular fitness program to be an arduous task, and quickly abandon their efforts and hopes for sustainable weight loss and long term health.

Exercise Drives Fat Loss and Improves Heart Health

The indisputable importance of regular exercise is underscored by a study published in the International Journal of Obesity which monitored the effects of high intensity exercise on a group of women for 15 weeks. Women who exercised the most were found to have significant reduction in total body fat and insulin resistance.

While the study didn’t factor the powerful effects of a well balanced, reduced calorie diet into the results, it’s important to note that the combined effect of diet and exercise will result in increased fat metabolism and lowered blood sugar and insulin levels. It can be easier than you might imagine to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine, and the key is to make it simple and fun with these tips.

Tip 1: Keeping It Easy

You don’t have to choose the most difficult or intense exercise to reap the important fitness and fat loss benefits. Unless you’re training for a triathlon, experts suggest the best form of physical activity is walking. It’s natural, fun and how we’ve evolved to stay active and fit.

Depending on your starting fitness level, slowly work your way up to at least 30 minutes of walking each day or at least on 5 days of the week. Studies show that you’ll get the same health benefits if you break it into multiple 10 minute sessions, and be sure to walk at a moderate pace to stimulate fat metabolism.

Tip 2: Work to Build Muscle

Exercise will appear to be easier when you have more muscle built throughout your body. Muscles provide the mechanics to power your body, so it’s important to build muscle tone to get more benefit from your workout. You don’t have to lift weights to build muscle, although free weights and weight machines are popular choices. Try walking while wearing ankle weights or swinging a pair of hand weights.

Tip 3: Clean the House or Mow the Lawn

Household chores qualify as a form of exercise which will assist in your weight reduction and health improvement efforts. Try mowing the lawn, weeding, mopping a dirty floor or vacuuming. Everyday tasks can work your muscles and burn as many calories as a structured exercise routine.

Tip 4: Use the Buddy System

Soliciting the help of a friend or family member is one of the best ways to keep your exercise fun and exciting, and also provides the critical motivation to keep you moving. Either exercise together, or talk about your accomplishments several times a week.

Regular exercise provides critical health benefits which are essential to your long term health and weight loss goals. Medical researchers regularly report the importance of moderate levels of physical activity on fat metabolism and heart health. Following these tips will help you to stay motivated and active so you can reap the significant health and weight loss rewards afforded by a regular exercise program.

Agein Corporation Responds to Study Showing Urban Air Ages Skin 10% Faster than Rural Life


Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 13, 2014

Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is responding to a recent study that found living in urban areas makes the skin age 10% faster than living in a rural setting.

According to recent scientific evidence, pollution can age the appearance of women’s skin 10% faster than those who live in the countryside. A study looked at women aged 30 to 45 and compared the skin quality of those living in urban areas with those living in a rural setting. While both test groups had similar lifestyles and were exposed to comparable amounts of ultraviolet light, those in urban areas experienced greater skin damage. (Source: “Skin Ages 10 Times Faster If You Live In A City, Study Finds,” The Harley Medical Group web site, November 10, 2014; http://www.harleymedical.co.uk/news/skin-ages-10-times-faster-if-you-live-in-a-city-study-finds.)

“After analyzing the data, researchers concluded that living in the city makes the skin age 10% faster than living in the country,” says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, Agein.com’s anti-aging and health and wellness specialist. “While there is no doubt that pollution damages the skin, the big questions are why and what can people do to prevent premature signs of aging?”

Studies show that the air in urban areas all over the world contains no less than 224 chemicals. The air pollution particles can penetrate the skin and damage proteins called keratins that protect the skin from moisture loss; the breakdown of this type of protein leads to the formation of wrinkles and premature aging. For those with sensitive skin, air pollution can lead to further issues, including uneven skin tone, redness, and inflammation, says Dr. McLaughlin. With 80.7% of the U.S. population living in urban areas, this groundbreaking research could have a significant impact on the way Americans look after their skin.

“Whether someone lives in the city or the country, to keep skin moisturized, healthy, and youthful-looking, it’s important to have a daily skin care regimen,” Dr. McLaughlin adds. “Use an anti-wrinkle moisturizing cream scientifically proven to improve skin tone and the appearance of deep wrinkles, as well as one that reduces fine lines around the eyes.”

Gentle ingredients such as acetyl hexapeptide-3 (Argireline) and Matrixyl 3000 have been shown to protect skin against the elements and improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, says Dr. McLaughlin. Matrixyl 3000 is a cutting-edge protein fragment that specifically targets thin, delicate skin and fine lines around the eyes and mouth and has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen from within the skin and improve skin tone.

Argireline is a protein that targets expression wrinkles. In one independent study, published by the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, Argireline reduced the look of wrinkles by 32 percent after just 28 days, says Dr. McLaughlin.
