Many of us have considered, at one time or another. how great it would be to live longer. There is always more to see, more to do, people to meet, and experiences to share. Wouldn't it be wonderful if a simple little diet hack could extend your life, even just a little? According to recent science, such a hack does actually exist. It turns out that eating one handful of nuts (about 30 grams) at least five days a week can extend your life by up to two years. Several major studies have discovered that people who eat nuts tend to live longer and suffer fewer deaths from heart disease, respiratory disease, and cancer. Researchers at Harvard University found that women at a high risk for heart disease, who ate a tablespoon of peanut butter five or more days a week, cut their risk of heart attack in half compared to women who only had one serving or less a week. Adolescent girls who consumed one or more servings of peanuts a week, had a significantly lower risk of developing lumpy breasts, which can be a marker for an increased risk of breast cancer. [bctt tweet="A Handful Of Nuts A Day Can Extend Your Life By 2 Years!"] Because they are high in fat, and therefore high in calories, you may be wondering if adding nuts to your diet will make you gain weight. The good news is that...

You may not have spent much time thinking about it but your body is in a pretty serious relationship with food. Feed your body the right things, and you will feel wonderful inside and out. Your skin will glow, you'll have more energy and your brain will be clear. If you are feeding your body the wrong things, you will feel that too. Unfortunately, it is easy to ignore the signs of a poor diet and chalk them up to being a side-effect of a busy, over scheduled, life. Sometimes you aren't eating enough, sometimes you are missing important nutrients.   If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might want to consider reevaluating your diet.  Ilyse Schapiro, R.D., author of Should I Scoop Out My Bagel?,  has weighed in, offering some insight as well as some solutions! 1. You are completely wiped all of the time. Possible culprit:  low iron levels. Iron is essential for keeping your energy levels high. It helps to transport oxygen throughout the body, keeping everything functioning as it should. But if you have low levels of iron, your energy can take a serious hit. Your body is not able to properly utilize the red blood cells that carry oxygen and your energy dips. This is why low energy is one of the first signs of anemia, or low...

For years, we've had it all wrong! We've been avoiding fat completely in an effort to improve our health and lose weight. Well, turns out, the key to losing weight -- and reducing the risk of heart disease -- may actually be eating fat! This doesn't mean you can go out and start drenching your meals in butter, we are talking about very specific fats, namely  monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) and  polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs), which include omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. For too long we've been depriving ourselves of these healthy, "good" fats. Unsaturated fats are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin E and can even lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of heart disease. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids help keep our heart and immune system working as they should. If weight loss is your goal, MUFAs can actually help you burn fat! (Need a plan that will help you add healthy fats to your diet? Check out the 30 day BodyRock Meal Plan). [bctt tweet="Here Is Why You Need To Eat Fat If You Want To Lose Weight"] While your focus should be on getting MUFAs and PUFAs in your diet, a little bit of saturated fat may also be helpful. Recent research has found that the saturated fat found in meat, cheese, and milk, are not as harmful as we...

So many things in our life make getting a good night's sleep incredibly difficult. Between our televisions, smart phones, and overly lit neighbourhoods, it can be nearly impossible to unplug and recharge. If you head to work each day feeling exhausted after a night of restless sleep, you are far from alone. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that one third of Americans are not getting enough sleep. Lack of sleep wreaks havoc on your hormones and cause a whole host of health related problems. It gets worse. The results of a new study have found that a lack of sleep may be seriously impacting your weight loss efforts in a way you never imagined. It appears that a lack of sleep has the same impact on your brain as smoking marijuana, according to research from the University of Chicago. The authors of the study intensively reviewed various and controlled eating habits of fourteen 20-something-year-old men and women and found that those who had a few nights of poor sleep ate an average of over 300 calories more per day than those who slept well (help keep your diet on track with the 30 day BodyRock Meal Plan). The sleep deprived subjects found themselves craving sugary, processed, high calorie snacks like chips, or candy bars -- you know, the kind of stuff you want to eat just after you've smoked a joint.

We all know people who manage to keep their figure no matter what. They spend all year in a bikini ready body while you struggle to keep your winter hibernation weight in check. It would be so much easier, and a whole lot healthier, if you could just maintain your healthy weight all year, every year, instead riding a roller coaster of gains and losses. But how do you get there? The researchers at Cornell Food and Brand Lab have come to your rescue. They developed an online Global Healthy Weight Registry where men and women with healthy weights could answer questions about their diet, exercise habits, and daily routines. The researchers then analysed the data and discovered that people who successfully maintain their weight held the following habits: 1. Start the day with a healthy morning meal While debates are still raging over whether or not breakfast is the most important meal of the day, for people who maintain their weight, it is a non-negotiable meal. An incredible 96% of people in the registry said they eat breakfast. Nearly a third of them listed eggs as their favourite breakfast food while 51% included fruits and vegetables at breakfast. 2. Eat mindfully You don't have to restrict your diet but you do have to pay attention to what and how you are eating. Don't shovel your food into...

As usual, Jennifer Lawrence looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet this past weekend. Lawrence has declared herself a proud eater of pizza and is an outspoken critic of impossible Hollywood beauty standards. She seems to be able to maintain a fun loving, carefree, lifestyle AND her enviable figure. This leaves many of us wondering, how does she do it? Thanks to her former trainer, Dalton Wong, we don't have to wonder any longer! Simply put, Lawrence eats the right foods at the right times and does exercise that works for her. Wong first met Lawrence in 2010 when he trained her for 3 months in preparation for her role as Mystique in X-Men: First Class. Wong provided Lawrence with the foundation she needed to adopt a healthy lifestyle. "I could never live on a diet," she explains, "Dalton taught me how to eat, move and live a delicious but healthy life. I will always thank him for that." During their time working together, their daily workouts included running, weight lifting, yoga, and resistance training. "We would do high intensity workouts in the mornings, such as cardio, and then relaxing stuff in the evenings, like yoga," explains Wong. "Some days I would just take her to have a massage." Wong taught Lawrence lessons about fitness and nutrition that she continues to use today. And...

We all have the power to transform our lives. We all have the ability to create an environment where we feel more inspired, excited, and enthusiastic. We can relieve stress, calm nerves and surround ourselves with good vibes. And the best part is that while we do all that, we can also increase our activity levels and burn more calories! It sounds too good to be true but in reality, you may be holding the key to all of this bliss right this very moment. Music is the key to unlocking happy thoughts and a more active body. According to a new study by Sonos and Apple Music, music is a powerful medicine. They began their study by surveying 30,000 people worldwide about their music routines and found that half believe music has no impact on their lives. Crazy, right? To test these statements they took a closer look at 30 families in different countries to see how, and if, their lives changed when they played music at home.   To establish a baseline, the families were not allowed to play any music for a week. This allowed the researchers to observe the family's ordinary activities and moods. The following week, they were allowed to play music as often as they wanted -- with one catch. They had to play the music out loud. No headphones were allowed in order to maximize the...

Once  you've made the decision to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle, you'd like to think that things will only become easier from there. But sometimes, especially in the beginning, that isn't the case. It seems that with each passing year, science discovers something else about the way our bodies function and everything we thought we knew about dieting gets turned  upside down. One fad gives way to the next and we're left scratching our heads and wondering what to do next. We now know that healthy fats and complex carbohydrates are an important part of a balanced diet, rendering low-fat, fat-free, and low-carb options relatively useless. Not only are they useless, they can be downright unhealthy. Might there be other unhealthy foods hidden behind a manufacturers' bogus health claims?  There certainly are! Here are 4 foods that can be healthy when prepared at home but when prepackaged are often laced with bulking agents and massive amounts of sugar making them an absolute diet disaster! 1. Green Drinks To most of us, plain vegetable juice tastes straight up nasty. Manufacturers are not foolish -- they know this so they load up their juices with fruit which spikes the sugar content. One popular 'green juice' on the market contains nearly 12 teaspoons of sugar in a 15.2 ounce bottle. [bctt tweet="4 "Healthy" Foods That May Be Sabotaging...

If you have ever struggled to lose weight, you know this one thing to be true: dieting doesn't work. Trust us, it isn't just you. In fact, recent research has determined that dieting may actually work against you and lead to greater weight gains! To put it simply, diets are designed to fail, says  Linda Bacon, PhD, associate nutritionist at the University of California, Davis, professor at the City College of San Francisco, and author of the books  Body Respect and Health at Every Size. So what exactly are you supposed to do? Losing weight is a worthy goal but in order to get there, you need to shift your mindset. Here are 5 ways to drop the dieting mindset and get yourself to a state of improved health. 1. Identify the real culprit You are not the problem. You are not lacking willpower, you are not a failure. Diets are simply not sustainable. "Recognize that dieting is the problem, not the solution," says Dina Zeckhausen, PhD, an Atlanta-based psychologist and founder of the Eating Disorders Information Network. More often than not, when you deprive yourself of foods, you are setting yourself up for an inevitable binge down the road. Try, instead, to eat according to your body's natural hunger and fullness cues. Look at the triggers that can lead you to overeating. Examine your...

A whopping one third of Americans are currently fighting a battle against obesity. It is a very real, and very difficult, struggle.  When you think you have large amounts to lose, getting yourself to your goal can feel darn near impossible. But, the results of a recent study may just be enough to give you some hope! Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, found that the greatest health benefits come from not losing extreme amounts of weight but by shedding a small amount relative to your total weight. What's that magic number? 5 percent of your total body weight!   "Our findings demonstrate that you get the biggest bang for your buck with 5 percent weight loss," Dr. Samuel Klein, the lead investigator and director of the school's Center For Human Nutrition, said. "The current guidelines for treating obesity recommend a 5- to 10-percent weight loss, but losing 5 percent of your body weight is much easier than losing 10 percent. So it may make sense for patients to aim at the easier target." [bctt tweet="How Much Weight Do You Need To Lose To Be Healthy? Not As Much As You Think!"] 5 percent of your body weight is a much more realistic goal for most people, lowering the risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, while improving the metabolic function of organs like the liver which can lead to even more weight loss.
