TIPS FOR AVOIDING LATE-NIGHT SNACKING

TIPS FOR AVOIDING LATE-NIGHT SNACKING/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

 

Hi everyone!  Hope you’re all having a great end to the week.  I wanted to share a little bit of insight on a topic that I think many of us have struggled with before – late-night snacking.  We’ve all been there at some point or another.  Or if you are anything like me, it’s an everyday occurrence.  Somewhere just an hour or so before bedtime, a little voice says, “I’m hungry”.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHY EATING HABITS/Fit.Fabulous.Beautiful

Good nutrition has a very important role in your life when leading a healthy lifestyle.  When combined with exercise, good nutrition can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. It also helps reduce risk of disease, boosts energy, improves mood, and promotes great overall health.

Here are the three main reasons that I eat healthy:

1. Health – This is the most important reason to eat healthy, it helps you to stay in peak condition.  What you put in your mouth everyday has an enormous impact on your overall health.  Eating fiber will lower cholesterol and blood pressure and can prevent certain types of cancers.

As I strive to live an active and healthy lifestyle, making each and everyday count, exercise has become a core part of who I am.  Living a fit and healthy lifestyle not only will change your body, but it changes your mind, your attitude and your mood.   I like to start off each and every morning with a hot cup of java, then I slip into a pair of my favorite Critical Pump leggings, before I  find a bright open space where I can engage in a good 30-45 minutes of physical activity.  Exercising each and everyday, helps me to get fit, stay healthy and feel beautiful.

One of my favorite parts of exercising is stretching.  What is stretching, you ask?  …

What is Maca?

Maca is a root vegetable native to the Andes Mountains in South America.  Maca root (lepidium meyenii) is a relative of cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli and cabbage, but due to its unique properties it considered to be a “superfood.”  It has traditionally been used to enhance both the female and male libido, and help treat a variety of illnesses.  But today this superfood is readily available as a dietary supplement in the form of powder, liquid and a pill.  Maca is being used regularly by athletes to increase stamina and enhance their athletic performance, as well as help speed up post-workout muscle recovery.
