Diet and Exercise Journal: How to Maintain Your Program

Diet and exercise journal can be a very helpful tool in accomplishing whatever fitness or weight-loss program. They allow you to track your daily or weekly progress, be it in the form of the food you eat, the calories you consume, the exercise you finish, or the calories you burn. Sometimes, the best way to keep fit or lose weight is to simply take track and control what you do.

There are many believers that losing weight is all about counting calories and burning them so that no fat is accumulated by the body. This could be an effective method, if only all foods showed their caloric content. Nowadays, there are database available to know just how many calories a regular cheeseburger has. The only missing ingredient to the diet program would be what to do with the information.

A diet and exercise journal can help record the food eaten daily. With this information, people can mix and match their dietary meals in order to match the exercise or activities for the day. For example, a breakfast of a pancake that is about ten inches in diameter holds about 371 calories. A person weighing 150 pounds who walks for 30 minutes at a regular pace of 3 miles per hour loses approximately 150 calories. With this information, it can be gathered that that person needs to walk for more than an hour to burn the calories that came with breakfast.

There are many factors in calculating the amount of calories being burned, but keeping a diet and exercise journal can be as simple as noting down the food you eat, the activities you do, and the weight you are at during the time of the record. Taking note of these facts allow people to see if they will need more exercise if they want to lose more weight, or if they will need to decrease the amount of food they take if they cannot do additional exercise.

Keeping a journal that shows progress and results can also lead to further motivation. The same way that people feel good about themselves when others notice something wonderful about them, there could be no better inspiration than seeing that the efforts they put in are yielding good results. Exercise wouldn’t make much sense if the body did not feel stronger or if some excess weight was not shed away. At the same time, dieting without seeing a slimmer body can be very disappointing and the program can be short-lived.

More than just a way to record and see daily facts, the most important contribution of a diet and exercise journal is probably the discipline it takes to fill out the pages. Weight loss, be it in the form of an exercise program or a diet regimen, can only truly be effective if the person swears to live by it and never give up. A journal may not be able to speak, but it is the one that can share your best kept secrets, and it is the entity that will show you that what you are doing is all worth it.

New Study on BioCell Collagen Published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN)


Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

BioCell Technology announced today the publication of a new clinical study on BioCell Collagen®. The study, now indexed on PubMed, describes the potential of BioCell Collagen® for protecting the connective tissue of the musculoskeletal system and enhancing recovery from intense exercise. The randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study was carried out by investigators at the Center for Applied Health Sciences (CAHS) who presented data in June at the 2014 International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) Conference in Clearwater Beach, Florida, USA.

Earlier clinical studies of BioCell Collagen® have substantiated its safety and efficacy in promoting joint health and skin beauty. As these studies provide evidence that the patented healthy aging ingredient supports various connective tissues throughout the body, this proof-of-concept study was conducted to investigate whether daily intake of BioCell Collagen® for six weeks could protect skeletal muscle connective tissue following an intense exercise challenge, and also enhance recovery. Data from the study showed that BioCell Collagen® attenuated deleterious changes in muscle tissue damage and inflammatory biomarkers including creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, and C-reactive protein. In addition, subjects who took BioCell Collagen® appeared to show a more robust “repeated bout effect” as compared to placebo, suggesting augmented tissue recovery and remodeling.    

“Extending its market-leading position as a key joint and skin health ingredient, this new clinical study in recreationally active healthy subjects provides intriguing dataset suggesting that this patented, research-backed dietary supplement has promising new applications in sports nutrition” says Suhail Ishaq, president of BioCell Technology, “This opens up a new category in sports nutrition regarding connective tissue protection and recovery from post-workout soreness and limiting repetitive, overuse related injuries.”

The details of the abstract are published on the JISSN website:

NLN Research Journal Publishes Themed Edition Featuring Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education


Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

Nursing Education Perspectives, the NLN’s respected bimonthly peer-reviewed research journal was invited to publish initial findings from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education (EIN) Initiative. EIN, based at the Center for State Health Policy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, was launched in 2008 in response to the growing shortage of nurses and nurse educators. Currently in its third grant cycle, the initiative supports evaluations of interventions that expand teaching capacity or promote faculty recruitment and retention in schools of nursing. So far, 12 grants of up to $ 300,000 have been awarded.

An important corollary to the EIN mission is the dissemination of evidence-based success in strategic interventions that may be widely replicated. “As a respected forum for presentation of evidence-based best practices and issues that are key to excellence in nursing education, Nursing Education Perspectives is a natural fit for these latest EIN findings,” noted NEP editor Joyce Fitzpatrick, PhD, RN, FAAN. “We made certain to expedite our peer-review process to respond to the foundation’s and the NLN’s shared interest in the timely publication of this research.”

Added NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN: “The NLN was delighted to be asked by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to showcase the groundbreaking EIN scholarship. Understanding how best to increase recruitment and retention of nurse educators dovetails with the NLN mission to promote excellence in nursing education to build a strong and diverse nursing workforce to advance the health of our nation and the global community.”

The six manuscripts accepted for publication, following NEP’s peer-review, are:

— “Increasing Faculty Capacity: Findings from an Evaluation of Simulation Clinical Teaching,” Hila Richardson, Lloyd Goldsamt, Janie Simmons, and Mattia Gilmartin; New York University

— “Dedicated Education Unit: Student Perspectives,” Vicki Nishioka, Michael Coe, Makoto Hanita, and Susan Moscato; University of Portland, OR

— “Dedicated Education Unit: Nurse Perspectives on their Clinical Teaching Role,” Vicki Nishioka, Michael Coe, Makoto Hanita, and Susan Moscato; University of Portland, OR

— “Building the Evidence for Dedicated Education Unit Sustainability and Partnership Success,” Joann Mulready-Shick and Kathleen Flanagan; University of Massachusetts, Boston

— “An Evaluation of State-based Support for Service Programs Targeting Nurse Faculty,” Jennifer Craft-Morgan, Don Pathman, Marilyn Oermann, T. R. Konrad, and Brandy Farrar; Georgia State University and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

— “Evaluation of the First Two Years: A State-Wide Consortium’s Adoption of a Unified Nursing Curriculum,” Alice Tse, Victoria Niederhauser, John Steffen, Lois Magnussen, and Nova Morrisette; University of Hawaii at Manoa

In his guest editorial introducing the reported findings, “Effectiveness of Strategies Addressing the Nurse Faculty Shortage,” Michael Yedidia, PhD, national program director of EIN and professor at Rutgers University Center for State Health Policy, highlighted several trends in academic nursing that gave rise to the need to create and test specific interventions. Dr. Yedidia then issued a call to action to schools of nursing to join EIN in expanding the project’s scope.
