Protein is essential for everyone, but it's incredibly important when you're trying to lose weight. Protein keeps you feeling full, but it also helps you build lean muscles. When you're selecting protein sources to add to your weekly menu, you're not just stuck with red meat or chicken. Vegetarian protein sources include chia seeds, quinoa, and beans.

The Best and Worst Exercise for Your Heart
(http://ow.ly/YgRI30nv69T)

You probably know that exercise is good for your heart, but the truth is that not all exercise is ideal. For instance, any exercise that you are not trained for can put too much stress on your heart. This includes training too intensely for marathons. On the other hand, starting new training programs slowly and steadily is much safer, especially if you're new to exercise.

Tip: discuss any new exercise routine with your primary care physician.
