Organic PBFit

Better Body Foods’ Organic PBfit is everything you love about peanut butter, made better. Whole-roasted organic peanuts, pressed to perfection, means Organic PBfit contains 87% less fat than traditional peanut butter, and about 1/3 the calories. In contrast to regular peanut butter, Organic PBfit is only 70 kcal compared to 188 kcal and only has 2 grams of fat compared to 16 grams of fat. All that’s left is powerful organic peanut protein, and a rich, guilt-free flavor you’ll crave on everything. So go ahead — lick the spoon.

The process for making Better Body Foods’ Organic PBfit peanuts starts in the humid climate of the state of Georgia, USA, where 2 out of 5 peanuts in the US are grown. After they are collected, the peanuts are gently roasted and pressed to remove most of the oil (fat and calories). Those pressed peanuts are then grounded into a fine powder and blended with coconut sugar and a pinch of salt. Finally, Organic PBfit peanut butter powder is packaged in a GMP and SQF certified facility in Utah.

Snack Smarts: Raise Your Nutrition IQ

By Simon Sum, DCN, RDN, ACSM-CPT, FAND, Director of North America Scientific Affairs, R&D at Herbalife Nutrition
 
The good news: nearly 90% of consumers read nutrition labels. The bad news: people don’t always understand the vital nutritional terms on labels. Nutrition IQ is critical to supporting healthy eating habits and reducing the risk of chronic disease. For example, according to The International Food Information Council Foundation, nearly two in three people have heard of nutrient density, but far fewer can explain what it means. And while many consumers now understand that protein is a vital addition to meals, they are less picky about their protein when it comes to snacking.
 
First, let’s first review why protein is critical to our daily diets. Proteins are essential macronutrients that help to maintain our immune systems and build muscle, bone, skin, and hair. Without consuming the appropriate amounts of protein, you run the risk of missing out on these essential functions. Eventually, that could lead to problems, such as a loss of muscle mass, failure to grow, weakened heart and lung function, and even early death. Available evidence indicates that it’s the quality of protein (or the protein “package”), rather than the amount of protein that likely makes a difference for our health. 
 
Nutrient density is the measure of how much nutrition you get per serving or per calorie eaten and vital to achieving a nutritious diet. When choosing between two food items with the same calorie amount, one food choice can provide your body with the protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals we need every day. In contrast, another option may provide empty calories from sugar and saturated fat with no other significant nutritional benefits.
 
Snacking often gets a bad rap because many options are loaded with sugar, saturated fat or excessive salt. And the food industry has responded to this challenge with endless “low sugar” and “low sodium” snacks – but that does not mean that the nutritional benefits are increased. The next evolution in the quest for better-than snacks has come in the form of protein labeled options. But while protein is good, not all protein snacks are created equal, and consumers may end up with a food solution that sounds healthy but is not.
 
One of the challenges with finding nutrient rich snacks is that until recently, there was no tool available for health professionals or food manufacturers to determine the nutrient density of protein snack products. Working with a team at Herbalife Nutrition, we created an index to identify the comprehensive profile of nutrient rich protein snacks. And the results were illuminating for consumers wanting to grab a bite that satisfies their hunger needs but also supports their desire for good quality protein snacks. 
 
Our study, entitled “A Modified Nutrition Rich Food Index to Assess Nutrient Density of Protein Foods and Snacks” presented at last month’s American Society for Nutrition annual meeting, demonstrated that good source protein food products are snacks with vitamins A and D, calcium, and fiber. At the same time, consumers should also look for products with a low amount of saturated fat, sugar, and sodium. As for calorie count – a healthy snack should be 100-150 calories to prevent hunger and maintain satiety before the next meal. So next time you grab a yogurt, shake, or protein bar – don’t just count calories, but also the vitamins and fiber to increase your healthy food options and raise your snacking IQ.
 

7 Tips to Increase Effectiveness of Your Workout

Workouts can do a lot more than just improve your physical fitness, it builds your confidence, keeps stress and anxiety at bay, extends life expectancy and keeps you happy. If you spend hours at the gym for same reasons but are not satisfied with the result, then you have to bring in a few changes. Otherwise sooner or later you are bound to give up. Few practices can increase the effectiveness of your workout and make it a fun activity. Take notes, put your shoes on and get started.

  1. Always Warm Up First

Never ever skip warm up sessions. If you think just doing heavy workout is enough to achieve physical fitness, then you are wrong. When you do warm up sets, you are conditioning your body for all the intense activities that are to follow. Warming up increases your speed and endurance, gives you flexibility and is very crucial to prevent injuries, which are very common during gym sessions.

  1. Short and Intense Workout

Spending three hours in the gym would not yield result if all you do is few minutes of cycling, take half an hour break, then a few crunches and a juice break. When working out, focus on quality, not quantity. Thirty to forty minutes of intense workout is enough for the day. But make sure in that time you are doing everything from push-ups to squats to crunches to weightlifting. Time is not an excuse now.

  1. Supplements

Even after a proper diet, your workout sessions can make you feel drained for the rest of the day. And that’s where supplements come in. Supplements like multivitamins, whey protein powder, creatine, and even caffeine is emerging as an effective supplement for workout. If you’re into taste then checkout best tasting protein powders 2019.

  1. Golden Rule – Proper Diet

It has been stressed enough that a balanced diet is the key to living healthy and longer. All the workout would be of no use if you end up munching on burgers, pizzas, donuts and sipping coke every day. Your body needs fuel to keep up with your energy requirements during and after workouts. Design and follow a balanced diet and take a good intake of protein and carbs. Drink water regularly and switch from coke to natural juice.

  1. Workout Partner

If going to the gym seems like an ordeal to you and you end up skipping gym days too often then get a workout partner. It can be your better half, any friend, family member or even a colleague. When you have a companion to accompany you, train with you, talk about the common topic and share progress with, you are most likely to stay motivated for longer duration ensuring continuity.

  1. Let the Music Play

Many researches show that music enhances your durability during workout sessions. High beat motivating music gives you an adrenaline rush and gives you mental strength to do that one more set. It also motivates you and distracts your mind from recognizing body pain from exertion. Design your own playlist of songs that activates your mind and body and makes you want to move. You’ll see the difference.

  1. Keep Track

How will you progress if you don’t remember the last milestone that you achieved? If you want to do better than yesterday, then it’s important to know what exactly you did yesterday so start keeping track of your workout sessions from the beginning. Note down the days, session time, break time and all the numbers. This way you can actually see if you made any progress or not. If not, time to increase those numbers.

If you’re into exercising and working out, then you are already in the right direction my friend. You choose to live better every day when you choose to work out every day so keep the spirit high and earn your good health.

Quinoaplex

Quinoaplex, a product made of hydrolyzed quinoa protein that protects hair before and after coloring/bleaching. Quinoaplex resolves the issue of thinning hair, split ends, hair breakage and damages. The reason why quinoaplex works is because h air is made up of 85% protein and as we get older, we expose hair to chemical products and gradually lose this protein. Without enough protein in your hair, you damage it even washing with regular shampoo and conditioner strips it of essential protein . B enefits for Quinoaplex:

-Hydrolyzed quinoa protein (mother of all grains) has the same structure of the protein that is in our hair, naturally. By applying the quinoa protein to the hair, we give it the protein required through the molecules of the organic, natural quinoa protein. Because of the size of the hydrolyzed protein, it enters the bulb where hair is produced, under the scalp, feeding the hair. Therefore, the hair that is produced by the body, grows stronger and reduces hair loss.

-You can carry and travel with the Quinoa Protein (the smaller 1.7oz – and for home 4oz) and spray and quickly massage throughout the day. It will not only provide volume, but also make the hair manageable without gels and sprays, which block the cuticles and increase hair loss.

-Hydrolyzed Quinoa Protein comes in one bottle treatment that supplements the hair from the inside out, with the protein that the hair lacks. Throw it in your gym bag or your purse or travel with it. For more information, please contact me and visit quinoaplex.com

Appropriate Protein Intake

Okayama University research: Estimating appropriate protein intake

In a recent study published in eLife scientists at Okayama show how proteins can hamper an organism’s growth

Biochemists have shown that very high protein levels can be harmful to cells in the human body. However, exactly which proteins fall under this category remains a mystery. Mr.Yuichi Eguchi (graduate student) and Associate Professor Hisao Moriya’s research team at Okayama University recently reported a framework for discriminating between which proteins are toxic at excessive levels and which are not.

The theory behind this phenomenon, also known as the protein burden, is that accumulation of excessive protein within the cell will deplete the cell of resources, such as energy. The limit required to reach this burden though, is not the same for all proteins. Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a harmless protein artificially introduced into cells for visualizing the insides of the cell. When GFP levels were increased within yeast cells, they found that GFP up to 15% of total protein content was harmless to the cells. Using this measure as a standard, Associate Professor Hisao Moriya’s team set out to estimate the burden limit of functional proteins in the cells. 29 proteins essential for energy production were subsequently over-produced.

While many of these proteins also had limits close to 15%, suggestive of their harmless nature, some of the proteins showed growth retardation and other unpleasant effects at lower levels. One such protein was found to accumulate within the mitochondria. Clogging the mitochondria prevents cells from producing oxygen. Another protein was found to undergo structural changes and aggregate into big pieces. Another reason for some of these proteins having a low burden limit, was due to metabolic disturbances induced when they were produced even slightly higher than usual. When these proteins were inactivated by mutations, their burden limit increased. Lastly, the researchers also found that certain proteins showed growth retardation, even at very low levels. Further investigation revealed that such proteins are programmed to remain at inherently low levels. Therefore, even small changes to their concentrations can be dangerous.

This study paved a framework for biologists to make distinctions between proteins based on how toxic they are when present in abnormal amounts. These differences could be attributed to the function, structure or genetic programming for that protein. Scientists can hope to use this framework to investigate proteins that are associated with diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease.

Background

The protein burden: Each protein has a distinct function within cells. Proteins are found in millions within the cell, and are synthesized or increased when required. Their levels subside when the cell doesn’t require them anymore. In certain conditions, such as neurodegenerative disorders, the levels of some proteins inherently remain high. Because the cell is not used to this, a battle to reduce these proteins ensues. This not only uses up the cell’s energy but damages the cell in the process.

By measuring the expression level that causes growth defect (expression limit), Eguchi and Moriya established a framework to distinguish harmful proteins from harmless proteins upon overexpression. They also found that some proteins were harmful upon overexpression because; they form aggregation through cysteine residues (S-S bond), they are transported into mitochondria, and they trigger metabolic perturbation.

LIIFT4 Effective Strength Training Routine

Top 5 reasons why you need to strength train 2-4 times per week. By Beachbody Super Trainer and Creator of LIIFT4, Joel Freeman.

1. Effective Fat Loss: Weight training increases your body’s caloric burn during and after every session due to increased post exercise oxygen consumption. A cardio workout alone does not have this same effect. Strength training will also offset the negative outcomes that caloric restriction induces by telling your body to preserve and build muscle, preventing or reducing metabolic decline.

2. Muscle mass IS your metabolism—the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn at rest. After the age of 30, physically inactive people can lose 3-8% of their muscle mass each decade and can even increase after the age of 60! This results in a reduced metabolism, which makes it much easier to gain weight and result in limited physical ability to participate in daily activities like carrying grocery bags, cleaning the house, climbing a stair case, etc. Lifting weights is the most effective way to help our bodies preserve and build muscle as we age.

3. Carves Sexy Curves: Lifting maintains and builds new muscle that will help create an aesthetically pleasing hourglass shape: round shoulders, tight waist, and defined legs, perky rear, etc. While most men understand these benefits, women tend to fear becoming “bulky” if they lift weights. Women simply do not have enough natural testosterone to accomplish this. With proper diet, the result will always be sexy, tight curves.

4. Stress Relief & Improved Sleep:  Just 5 minutes of exercise can trigger anti-anxiety responses in the body. Those who regularly strength train tend to manage stress better and experience fewer adverse reactions to stressful situations as those who do not. Since stress is a common cause of sleep issues, reducing stress can also improve your ability to fall asleep faster, sleep deeper and wake less often.

5. Boosts Confidence: If you’re not happy with yourself first, how can you be happy for anyone else? Self-confidence can lead to an overall healthier lifestyle and looking and feeling better is a great start to improve upon yourself, your relationships and work performance.

How to maximize your results in your sessions when you are strength training 2-4 times per week.

1. Weight training with enough intensity and selecting the right weights are essential to maximize the results. Lift 5 more pounds if your last set wasn’t challenging enough. It should be challenging! Progressive overload will keep your muscles engaged and advancing past plateaus. You are challenging your muscles, so they can grow and get stronger all while burning the maximum number of calories every workout.

2. Eat enough protein. Protein is the building block of muscle, and if you’re not getting enough your body can’t repair and build the muscle you’re asking it to after a strength training session. Try eating 0.8-1 gram of protein per pound you weigh every day.  Select high quality proteins like lean meats, fish, eggs, dairy, beans, nuts & seeds, and even tofu. If you have a difficult time consuming enough protein from foods, add a protein shake as a snack or right after your weight training session.

3. Try to get 8 hours of sleep.  Sleep is one of the times your body produces the most growth hormone, therefore the more sleep you get the faster your muscles will recover and build from weight training exercises.

4. Be consistent! Building muscle takes time. Keep lifting and challenging your muscles and your results will show.

High Protein Diet May Increase Heart Failure Risk

For middle-aged men, eating higher amounts of protein was associated with a slightly elevated risk for heart failure than those who ate less protein, according to new research from the University of Eastern Finland. Proteins from fish and eggs were not associated with heart failure risk in this study. The findings were reported in Circulation: Heart Failure.

Despite the popularity of high protein diets, there is little research about how diets high in protein might impact men’s heart failure risk.

“As many people seem to take the health benefits of high-protein diets for granted, it is important to make clear the possible risks and benefits of these diets,” said Jyrki Virtanen, PhD, study author and an adjunct professor of nutritional epidemiology at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. “Earlier studies have linked diets high in protein – especially from animal sources — with increased risks of type 2 diabetes and even death.”

Researchers studied 2,441 men, age 42 to 60, at the study’s start and followed them for an average 22 years. Overall, researchers found 334 cases of heart failure were diagnosed during the study and 70 percent of the protein consumed was from animal sources and 27.7 percent from plant sources. Higher intake of protein from most dietary sources, was associated with slightly higher risk. Only proteins from fish and eggs were not associated with heart failure risk in this study, researchers said.

For this study, researchers divided the men into four groups based on their daily protein consumption. When they compared men who ate the most protein to those who ate the least, they found their risk of heart failure was:

• 33 percent higher for all sources of protein;

• 43 percent higher for animal protein;

• 49 percent higher for dairy protein;

• 17 percent higher for plant protein.

“As this is one of the first studies reporting on the association between dietary protein and heart failure risk, more research is needed before we know whether moderating protein intake may be beneficial in the prevention of heart failure,” said Heli E.K. Virtanen, MSc, first author of study, PhD student and early career researcher at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. “Long-term interventions comparing diets with differential protein compositions and emphasizing differential protein sources would be important to reveal possible effects of protein intake on risk factors of heart failure. More research is also needed in other study populations.”

The Finnish Cultural Foundation North Savo Regional fund, Päivikki and Sakari Sohlberg Foundation, Paavo Nurmi Foundation and The Finnish Association of Academic Agronomists funded the study.

The True Story

The True Story About Organic Meat

Company Teams Up With Registered Dieticians And Food Experts To

Help Consumers Make Ethical and Nutritious Choices About Protein

True Story, makers of organic and Project Non-GMO Certified sausages, hot dogs, deli meats, and fresh pork have partnered with registered dieticians and food experts Regina Ragone and Elizabeth Fassberg to educate consumers and retailers about the health benefits of organic and non-GMO meats.

Regina Ragone, MS, RD, former food director at Family Circle, food editor of Prevention and author of Meals That Heal and Elizabeth Fassberg, MPH, RD and CDN, the owner of the food and nutrition consultancy Eat Food who has partnered with Dr. Oz’s HealthCorps and Jamie Oliver. Ragone and Fassberg have spent years counseling food lovers and food creators to improve lives through making better choices about their food.

WhOrganic Apple & Wildflower Honey Chicken Sausageile plant based alternatives are gaining in popularity, the majority of Americans are still eating meat every day.” adds Ragone.

“If we can guide them to make better choices about the meat they choose to eat, we can have a huge impact on their diet and their lives,” says Faasberg.

Animal protein sources, such as lean meats like True Story, are similar to the protein found in your body. These protein sources are considered to be complete sources of protein because they contain all of the essential amino acids that your body needs to function effectively. Plant protein sources, such as beans, lentils and nuts are considered to be incomplete, since they lack one or more of the essential amino acids that your body needs,” says Regina Ragone RD.

Lean animal protein contains several nutrients lacking in plant based protein. These essential nutrients include: heme-iron which is much better absorbed in the body than non-heme iron from plant-based protein; vitamin B12 which is only found in animal protein, it is an essential nutrient needed to help your body make red blood cells and keep the brain and nervous system healthy and zinc which is essential for growth and helps the immune system work properly. Zinc is mostly found and better absorbed and used from animal protein sources,” adds Elizabeth Faasberg RD.

The pair have created tips and recipes to help consumers find healthy and humanely raised proteins to add to their everyday meals now available here.

Here are some helpful tips when choosing proteins in your diet from Ragone and Faasberg:

· For a satisfying afternoon snack try a slice of True Story Organic Uncured Applewood Smoked Ham or Organic Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, a couple of whole grain crackers and a slice of apple. Protein plays a key role in regulating your hunger hormone so eating a protein-rich snack helps you to feel more satisfied between meals.*

· Start your day with a hearty balanced breakfast — to boost the flavor add True Story Organic Apple & Wildflower Honey Chicken Sausage and some greens to your omelet and don’t forget a piece of fruit to top it off! People tend to get most of their protein during evening meals and the least at breakfast. Moving some protein from dinner to breakfast can help with weight management by decreasing hunger and cravings throughout the day. **

· Choosing organic can make it simpler to know more about how your food is raised. Organic meats are raised without GMOs, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. The foods cannot contain synthetic preservatives.

Check out the newly created recipes by Ragone and Fassberg such as Homemade Colorful Cole Slaw Made with Thick Cut Oven Roasted Chicken Breast, Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich made with Pasture Raised Uncured Beef Hot Dogs; and Wheat Berry, Toasted Walnut, Broccoli and Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage at www.truestoryfoods.com/recipes.
