Exercise After a Meal
Studies recently published in the Journal of Applied Physiology showed that cardiovascular disease risk decreased among adults with obesity and type 2 diabetes when they exercised after a meal. Resistance exercise had the most significant effect on triglycerides (unhealthy fat that leads to heart disease) and glucose (sugar levels). Both were greatly reduced by participants in the study who conducted resistance training after dinner. Aspartame and Depression
There has been much published about the negative health impacts of aspartame. Recent studies are showing that the artificial sweetener may lead to symptoms of depression. Studies published by The National Institute of Health revealed that participants who consumed drinks that contain aspartame also increased depression symptoms by as much as 55% with participants. Know Your Impact
It is so important to know the impacts on yourself and others of your health choices. Whether it is your physical, mental, or emotional health, the nutritional and exercise choices that you make really matter. The health choices that you make also impact those who love you in an emotional, financial, and physical way. Caring for someone who prematurely is disabled or is not functioning at high levels creates worry, extra financial burdens, and poor health for loved ones because of the stress. Take care of yourself! BE YOUR OWN MIRACLE!
