    Understanding your metabolism is key to managing you weight----but that's easier said than done. We know that movement sheds calories as the more you move, the more calories you burn. The key is maintaining activity throughout the majority of your waking hours.

    Muscle burns more calories than fat as our metabolic rate is driven by muscle mass. Ten pounds of muscle burn up to 60 calories a day, while 10 pounds of fat only burn 20. Be sure to add strength training to your exercise regimen to boost your metabolism. emoticon

    🌻🌼🌹🌾 ALMONDS AND PEANUTS 🌻🌼🌹🌾

    Nuts are an overall good choice for snacking. Almonds are my favorite nut and I try to include them in my daily eating. Almonds have more calcium than any other nut, they are low in carbs, but high in fiber and protein. Studies show that eating almonds (and other nuts) will give you a feeling of fullness longer and help you eat fewer calories throughout the day. 12 almonds are under 100 calories and very satisfying. Peanuts are another good choice. Health magazine says that like most other nuts, peanuts are also full of brain-boosting healthy fats and vitamin E, as well. One ounce of peanuts (about 28 unshelled nuts) contains about 170 calories, 7 grams protein, and 14 grams fat. Eating nuts helps your brain power and reduces inflammation.

    ❉ *.*✳*..*❄*.*❆ TIME TO RESET AFTER SUMMER ❉ *.*✳*..*❄*.*❆

    As summer ends and fall schedules begin, it may be time to “reset” your healthy habits. For most of us, it was a lazy, crazy summer and many took a “vacation” from healthy living. Backyard Bar-b-ques, relaxing on the beach or taking in the ambience of outdoor restaurant eating may have led to weight gain.You may have eaten things that you know were not so low calorie and nutritious and maybe you even let your daily exercise go by the wayside. It’s time to get that weight off and increase your daily exercise - -it’s time to get back on your healthy living routine. It’s easy to reset. Make daily exercise for 30 - 60 minutes a priority and don’t miss. Get back to planning your meals and snacks to keep good eating choices at the forefront. By changing a few daily habits, you can get back to healthy living and feeling GREAT
