Your diet plays a key role in how high or low your cholesterol is. Certain foods can cause your cholesterol to drop or create changes in the body that affect how quickly your blood flows and how efficiently your blood can circulate throughout your body.
Eat More Fish
Substituting red meat for fish two to four times a week can have a positive impact on cholesterol levels. This will help reduce your overall intake of saturated fats, while increasing your intake of heart-healthy omega-3 fats. It’s important to be careful what kinds of fish you eat, as some contain higher levels of mercury which increases the risk of heart disease. Fish such as wild salmon and tuna are best to focus on.
With summer finally upon us, everyone’s looking forward to getting to show off their hard work in the gym (and the kitchen). However, with the warm weather, the parties and the barbeques in full swing, it can be easy to undo all that hard work. Well fear not, as you can still kick back and enjoy yourself this summer, all whilst looking great, and feeling better! We’ve got this incredible Healthy BBQ Guide courtesy of the folks over at Discount Supplements to keep you on track this summer. Whether you feel like getting your gains in with protein bars, chicken breasts or even cocktails, we’ve got you covered this season!
When the sun is out and the summer weather is at its peak, there is nothing better than having a cold drink in one hand and an ice cream in the other. There is something extremely satisfying about licking the ice cold treat and even occasionally watching a drip slowly making its way down the cone towards your hand.
If you are anything like me then you will suffer from this problem for about a quarter of the year. Being lucky enough to live in Britain, we do not have the world’s longest summers so it is only a problem for around two to three months.
Here’s my advice to you and it is free to everyone who feels like listening.
Go out this weekend and find your local food festival, farmer’s market or just a local vendor offering handmade and carefully produced products.
