As Sundays are known as the day of rest, why not test your resting heart rate? 

Your resting heart rate is often a good determination as to how fit you are. 

The normal amount the heart needs to work while a person is resting is 70 beats per minute. 

The fitter you are, generally the lower your resting heart rate is. 

This is due to the heart getting bigger and stronger with exercise, and getting more efficient at pumping blood around the body. 

Grab a stopwatch, or look at your watch with a second hand, then find your pulse. You can locate your pulse either in your radial artery on your wrist or at your carotid artery in your neck. Choose the spot that works best for you.

Count for 60 seconds the amount of times your heart beats, this is your resting heart rate. 

NutriFitMe Fact: 
Miguel Indurain, a five time, Tour De France winner is also famous for clocking in a 28 beats per minute resting heart rate. 

What is yours?

Now the clock has gone back and you are finding yourself putting on more layers of clothing. 

You might find yourself needing a little bit more motivation to lose weight or stay active. 

Why not find yourself a training partner? Start a new fitness class? Go treat yourself to a light waterproof running jacket? Get some home gym equipment? 

Stop the all excuses! Get your 2013 beach body activated now!

Opting for "Low Fat" products will not aid in weight loss and is not always the best option. 

The fat is taken out is replaced with cheap carbohydrates and additives. 

Without the fat in the product the body can not determine whether you are satisfied. 
This means you will crave/eat more than you normally would, which increases your insulin production meaning higher fat retention.

For a great breakfast option, try: 
40g of Total 10% Fat Greek yoghurt with a handful of blueberries and a dash of cinnamon.
