Exercise is the Most Effective Preventative Strategy to Fight Chronic Conditions

Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and dementia can all be made less devastating by getting your heart rate up.
Use a device to remind you to get up and stand or take a walk. Your smartphone has a timer, a fitness band will remind you of how many steps you took during the day. Use whatever means you need to break the cycle of sedentary behavior and get moving.
Exercise will help you be a healthier, stronger, and longer-surviving version of yourself.

Increasing Your Energy – Chocolate

Chocolate is one food that makes people happy which boosts energy. Chocolate boosts serotonin, which triggers the release of dopamine which stimulates the “pleasure” part of the brain. Dark chocolate is best.


Increasing Your Energy – Carbs

If you’re eating mostly low-glycemic foods to keep blood sugars level or to try to lose weight, about once or twice a week it’s OK to have a meal of fast-burning carbohydrates such as pasta, white potatoes or white rice. One thing that the occasional high-carb meal will do is boost your energy, but also will help your body to avoid a slowing metabolism that comes along with eating a low-carb diet.


Increasing Your Energy – CoQ10

Coenzyme Q10 is one of the best energy-producing nutrients, and it’s one that most people dont’ get enough of. CoQ10 increases the activity of the mitochondria, the energy-producing structures inside the cells. If you’re taking a statin drug to lower cholesterol, you’re probably deficient in CoQ10 because statins deplete CoQ10 from the body.


Increasing Your Energy – Eggs

Whole eggs keep your energy humming and prevent the postmeal slump that occurs when you eat too much. Whole eggs are better than egg whites alone because the yolks are high in choline, a B bitamine that reduces inflammation and the fatigue that accompanies it. The old addage that eggs are heart attacks waiting to happen have been thoroughly debunked by studies in the past 20 years.
