Fitness Tip

Relaxing In A Hammock


You already know that exercise is one of the best things you can do to maintain your weight and boost your overall health, but overdoing it can actually have the

opposite effect.


Working out seven days a week can actually weaken your immune system, strain your joints, and tire you out. And, if you're exercising with improper form due to fatigue, you'll actually burn fewer calories than if you were exercising correctly.


To prevent "workout burnout", schedule at least one day off a week.

Nutrition Tip

 Agave Nectar

  Use Agave Nectar

                                                        Agave (pronounced uh-GAH-vay) nectar is a natural sweetener that comes from several species of desert plants native to the Americas.


It's produced by expressing the juice from the core, then filtering, heating and treating it with natural enzymes to convert the inulin into sugars.


Make sure that the label says "nectar", not just "sweetener". And, where possible, buy organic.


As a sweetener, agave nectar ranks relatively low on the glycemic load scale.

Although it provides as many calories as sucrose (table sugar), it is much sweeter, so you can use less of it - say one-quarter of a cup to substitute for one cup of sugar in

most recipes.
