Anti-Aging Foods For Women via Maximized Living


Anti-Aging Foods For Women

Today, people are searching for ways to keep themselves feeling and looking younger. In addition to keeping an active lifestyle, eating well can decrease risk of heart disease–the no. 1 killer of women in America—as well as other health issues.

Eating a fresh whole-food diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will keep women of all ages feeling and looking their best.

Here’s a brief list of foods that have been shown to fight the effects of aging in women:

Berries

Blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, blackberries and gooseberries are all foods that are rich in flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants, one of the greatest anti-aging assets found in organic foods.1

Berries protect against the deterioration of cognitive and motor functions, reduce oxidative stress, lower inflammation and improve brain cell signaling, according to Dr. Barbara Shukitt-Hale, Ph.D.

They’re also a great source of vitamins and can even ensure proper blood flow. Besides flavonoids, berries also are loaded with other nutrients, including vitamin C, potassium and folate (vitamin B9).

There’s a large amount of fiber in a daily serving of berries, which also offer digestive benefits. Consuming berries on a consistent basis provides the body with minerals and salts that destroy free radicals, which helps protect women against aging. Shukitt-Hale suggests 1 cup of berries per day to prevent memory loss, lower disease risks and curb weight gain.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil provides the clean, healthy fats the body needs to maintain healthy skin and hair throughout life. In general, “good” fats—monounsaturated fatty acids in olive oil’s case—are lacking in the diets of most North Americans. Extra virgin olive oil represents your best choice because it is minimally handled and processed, and it tastes delicious.

When cooking with olive oil, never heat the oil so much that it begins to smoke. Use low to medium heat only, and monitor the oil. Once it starts to smoke, olive oil actually turns rancid.

Salmon

In order to keep skin supple, women are encouraged to eat about 12 ounces per week of wild salmon, as suggested by the American Heart Association.

Salmon also contains omega-3 fatty acids, is rich in vitamin B12, vitamin D, reduces inflammation and slows the progression of chronic disease. Salmon is known to reduce blood pressure, a common health issue for women over 50.2

Dark, Leafy Greens

Kale, spinach, collard greens, romaine lettuce and Swiss chard are dark green vegetables that are full of vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, potassium, calcium and magnesium. The vitamin B in greens guards the heart and memory. Vitamin A supports skin cell turnover, and the lutein found in many forms of green vegetables protects vision.

According to Martha Clare Morris ScD, director of the Center of Nutrition & Aging at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, those who eat three to four servings of greens a day will experience less of a decline in memory, recall and other mental functions. Morris and her team have tested 37,000 people.

The antioxidants in greens prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Lycopene, lutein and beta-carotene–commonly found in green vegetables–help block UV rays that cause skin to age rapidly. The nutrients in greens help fight against cardiovascular disease, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and may even prevent certain types of cancer.

Garlic

Garlic is equally as delicious as it is good for you. Garlic is part of a class of vegetables known alliums, which help support your liver’s natural ability to neutralize and remove toxins and carcinogens. To prevent cell degeneration, garlic keeps blood thin and also prevents heart disease.3

Like many of the other foods on the list, garlic is rich in antioxidants. It can help limit the growth of abnormal cells and increases blood flow that goes to the brain for awareness.

According to Dr. Ian Smith M.D., garlic also helps fight acne, prevent dandruff and kill bacteria.

What You Can Do

Eating healthy is not about depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about fulfilling your body’s needs for vital nutrients. With the right dietary information, you can keep your body looking and feeling fantastic for life.

Jump Rope Workout Exercise to get you in shape


Jump Rope Workout – A 10 minute a day full body workout – click here to check out this video

Celebrity trainer Tanja Djelevic (http://tanjadjelevic.com/) shows host Judy Greer a simple full body workout using only a jump rope.

When was the last time you jumped rope – fourth, fifth or maybe sixth grade? Well, jump roping is one of the most efficient ways to burn calories and keep the weight off. How many calories do you burn jumping rope? Try nearly fifteen to twenty calories every minute! That is an efficient way to burn energy and keep pounds from packing on, and, jump roping is fun, affordable and can be done with a work-out buddy.

Dr. Peter Shulman, MD, professor and medical expert from the University of Connecticut Health Center, reports that jumping rope is one of the best ways to improve your heart health. Not only does the exercise burn calories needed to lose weight, but elevates your heart rate to a level that most cardio machines are not capable of doing. Dr. Shulman reports that jump roping strengthens the core, upper body and legs while burning a lot of calories in a compact amount of time.

Some doctors argue the benefits of jump roping in those who are extremely overweight because of the direct stress put on the knees, ankles, legs and hips. However, physical training experts report that even obese individuals may benefit from the intense work-out if done properly and at a low impact level. Some of the basic requirements for jump roping are as follows:

  • Obtain a beaded rope that holds its shape and is easy to control
  • Shorten or lengthen the rope so that the handles comfortably reach the armpits
  • Wear comfortable athletic shoes that are approximately a half-size larger that normally worn to allow room for the toes and feet during impact
  • Choose comfortable grips that provide good handling and precision when turning
  • Secure an open space for jumping rope that is at least 4×6 with approximately one foot clearance overhead

These helpful tips will keep you from injuring yourself or those around you and get you off to the right start when implementing this exercise into your routine.

For novices who are just getting started, don’t focus too much on how many calories you burn jumping rope, but determine a particular time that you want to achieve. Start out with a low-impact jump for one to two minute intervals. If you are able to increase the duration of time spent jumping, then up the amount by thirty second intervals.

Jumping rope should be fun and invigorating, not painful and discouraging. If you are unable to go more than a few jumps at a time or find yourself getting tangled up in the ropes, don’t get discouraged but keep practicing. With jump roping, practice does make perfect and before you know it you will be jumping rope as light-footed as a heavy-weight prize fighter in training.

If you are in doubt of your physical ability to jump rope, or haven’t done so for thirty or forty years, it is important to check with your family doctor to get the go-ahead. Remember to warm-up and cool down both before and after your work-out to prevent injury and as with any exercise, stretching is one of the most important elements to working out. Stretching will also loosen your muscles and help you determine the impact each jump has on your body.

Jump roping can be very beneficial to your body and heart, while providing fun for the entire family. If you have children, incorporate them into the mix and jump rope together. Your children and your heart will thank you.

Make a Date With Fitness ~ Reblog from Refine Fitness Studio


Refine Fitness Studio

One of my favourite things this time of year is getting back to my regular routine. Up with the kids at 6: 30 a.m., out the door by 7: 45 and at my studio or teaching in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor by 8: 30 a.m.

My clients are just like me. Many wander from their regular routines over the summer and are now getting back on track.

A great way to adopt an exercise routine is to book three or four regular appointments for yourself. Exercise is like many other things: If you don’t schedule it, it won’t happen. Having a regular time to exercise also helps you mentally get into the routine while scheduling other things around the workout.

Most busy adults I know need to take a step further and schedule this appointment with a trainer or group exercise instructor who will keep…
