Top 5 Healthy Lifestyle Tips

17 Aug 2020 no comments admin

Getting Fit means Eating Fit!

Getting fit means eating fit. We all have different goals in life but my guess is that all of us want the best life possible. Our best life is led when our bodies can perform the tasks we ask of it without pain. There are many ways of achieving this and it is always a combination of several things that make this possible.

Your diet is one of the most important aspects of living your best life. Together with exercise, it’s diet that will make your body feel good and make it perform the way you want it to.

There are a lot of misconceptions about what healthy food is and how to take care of yourself so here are 5 things that will help you live your best life… 

    1. Fat is Fab!

      Good FatsFat has long been the bogey-man of health. Unfortunately we threw the baby out with the bath water. Although there are definitely fats (mostly man-made and processed fats) that should (almost) never be consumed, the ‘right’ kind of fat is not only NOT bad for you… it’s GREAT! In fact, have a read here for more information about what fats are good and which ones to avoid. And remember, the way you consume your fat is also important. Overheating many of the good fats can change their molecular structure and can turn a good fat into a bad fat.

      Most of the so-called ‘healthy low-fat’ options in the grocery store are, in fact, worse than their full-fat counterparts.

      Good fat is a great source of energy for your body and provides essential nutrients for a fit lifestyle!

    2. Count your Carbs

      Carbs are another source of mis-information. Generally speaking, fitness minded people will tell you carbs are bad and should be avoided as much as possible. People who follow the Keto diet avoid all carbs!

      However, carbs in and of themselves are NOT bad, it’s the type of carbs you eat that count. With high-glycemic index carbs (carbs which your body turns into sugar rapidly such as white rice, refined flours, baked goods, sugar etc.) your body will quickly convert these into sugars that your muscles supposedly need to perform. However, if you are not consuming those sugars immediately, your body will save those sugars as body fat…

      Low-glycemic index carbs (such as whole-grains, many green vegetables and some fruits) will convert to sugar much slower. This has many benefits. You will feel full longer, you will have more energy for a longer period of time (without a sugar spike) and your body will not store the excess sugars.

      It is still a good idea to limit the number of carbs although that really depends on your exercise level. If you are going on a 3-hour bike ride, have your low-glycemic index carbs about an hour or two prior to your activity and while doing your exercise, a higher-glycemic food can be consumed for quick energy boosts (fruits are great for this!).

    3. Prep like a Pro

      One of the most common diet fails is the lack of preparation. I get ‘hangry’ often because life is so busy and I only think of food when it’s too late. Then… just grab the easiest, fastest thing you can find which often isn’t a healthy choice.

      That’s where preparation comes in. There are so many articles on how to do this, I don’t want to repeat what others have already said, but one option you may not have thought of are meal-prep companies such as Foodie Fit. We deliver freshly prepared, whole foods directly to you. When that ‘hanger’ strikes, all you have to do is warm up one of our meals and you’re set! Remember, Getting Fit means Eating Fit!

    4. Body Basics

      We put our body through a lot of stress and you need to give it a break once in a while. Sometimes there are aches and pains from incorrect use, overuse or other stresses on the body. This is where massages can really help. Not only are they relaxing and a great way to spend your ‘me’ time, but they actually help rejuvenate, re-energize and recover both mind and body and in many cases heal as well. Even without aches and pains, regular massages are always a good idea.

      If you haven’t already found a great place to get a massage, look around your neighbourhood, as there are usually massage clinics nearby. The Mountainview Movement wellness clinics in downtown Vancouver are a great option for a visit after work. Get your massage in while others are stuck on their commute.

    5. Me times Three

      There are many excuses not to be healthy such as not having enough time because you have to write a blog post about being healthy… 😀

      But your health is the most important part of your life and should take priority over almost everything else. Without your health you are not performing at your best, whether it’s for yourself or taking care of others.

      Always prioritize these three things:

      1. Sleep
      2. Diet
      3. Exercise

Enjoy the article below on why regular massages can lead to a drastically increased quality of life.

Improving Your Life Through Massage

Most people consider massages and relaxation to be synonymous, which is true to some extent, but there is a lot more to it. Occasional body massages are the best way to straighten out the knots in your body, but what about long-lasting and life-changing advantages of frequent massages? An easy way to update your self-care regime would be the addition of regular massage treatments that become a part of your lifestyle.

Improving Every Aspect of Life

The common perspective is that massages are great for the body, but they can also positively impact almost every part of an individual’s life. Massage therapy brings positive changes in the physical, physiological, emotional, and mental health of people.

Prominent Advantages of Frequent Massages

Out of the many types/modalities of massages, you can choose any to be a part of your lifestyle and will soon see the changes it brings. Even something as small as a foot massage has the potential to change your outlook on life. Talking about the benefits, we will be covering them based on their impact on the different parts of an individual’s life.

1. Alleviation of Back Pain

Back pain is an affliction that is suffered by almost everyone more than once in their lives, whether they have back issues or not. The causes vary, but the presentation is the pain, and one of the best methods of tackling this issue is to get massaged.

2. Reduction in Stress-Related Complaints

Stress destroys a human body, and it is almost impossible in our twenty-four seven society to avoid it. The best option that you have to manage it would be going for regular massage appointments. Muscle pain and tightness caused by stress would be resolved by a therapeutic massage that will ultimately decrease cortisol levels and insulin, and help you manage the physical presentation of stress.

3. Correct Your Posture

Bad posture is a primary causes of body ache for most people, but it can be dealt with a massage by a well-trained massage therapist. A deep tissue massage will target the muscles around joints, which will slowly but surely improve your posture. For the management of pain that comes with bad posture, you could also look at physiotherapy.

4. Better Quality of Life

Regular massages have been shown to improve quality of life regardless of the health issues you might have. Even if you don't have any health issues currently, regular massage therapy can help in preventing issues.

5. Neuromuscular Pains and Movement Injuries

Many people sit at their desks at work for long stretches of time. This often results in movement injuries in their back, arms, legs, and more. The answer to this tiresome and painful problem is myofascial therapy; this is a massage technique where chronic pain in major muscles that support the body is addressed.

Rachel Killam’s Covid19 Coping Tips

25 May 2020 no comments admin

Rachel is a IBFF Figure Pro AND has a full-time job as the Marketing Manager for Magnum Nutraceuticals. That’s a whole lot of discipline and structure on any day. But with the current Covid19 pandemic in full swing, Rachel has had to adjust her life as well. How has she adjusted? Read Rachel Killam’s Coping tips below:

  1. Practice gratitude DAILY! Whenever I start to feel myself getting anxious or slipping into a bad headspace about the unforeseeable future, I take a moment to reflect on everything I am currently grateful for.
  2. Keep to a routine! Structure your days and slot in your active times as you would normally. This is especially important if you have been working from home or laid off. I’ve been fortunate enough to be working from Magnum HQ during the week, but having my old routine flipped on its head has definitely been hard, so this is important.
  3. Move your body. Gyms might be closed but you need to keep moving. Skipping workouts will have a negative impact on mental health during stressful times.
  4. Don’t forget your anchors! Your anchors are things that help keep you grounded during stressful times – like the gym when available, or any other habits/activities you would normally enjoy to help relax, blow off steam etc.
  5. Be kind to yourself! Be gentle and don’t beat yourself up about lost motivation or focus. We are all handling this in different ways, some better than others – but we’re all faced with challenges. Cut yourself some slack!
  6. Take a social media break. I have had to do this a few times – information overload around COVID and all of the conspiracies can be heavy – and there is an abundance of reactive individuals. You also aren’t a failure if you’re not super productive, hustling, or learning a new skill during this pandemic!
  7. Treat your body well especially under prolonged times of stress – make sure you’re fueling with nutritious foods to help keep inflammation down.

Thanks Rachel, for the great tips!
