Traditional slow paced weight room workouts have their place, but high intensity/fast paced exercise is efficient http://ow.ly/U9idZ

Eating Tip:  Use plain almonds or cashews as a healthy "between meal" snack that will provide nutrients and hold you to that next meal.

Flexibility is the slowest area of fitness to improve and will naturally decrease as we age, but there is great news. Stretching helps to slowly and steadily improve flexibility, and exercise in general counters the main sources of loss of flexibility. As we age, muscle will tend to be replaced with less flexible collagen. But weight lifting builds muscle, countering this effect. Muscle can be trained (stretched) to maintain flexibility. In addition, weight training assists with joint stability and improves tensile strength of tendons and ligaments. Don't just focus on the scale - Keep it balanced and take it slow - exercise is key to long term fitness and health!

We often see that foods contain "sea salt" in them. This sounds appetizing and is touted to be healthier, but in reality there is little difference between sea salt and mined salt. Slight variations in mineral content (all of which can be obtained from other sources of food) and less iodine (which the body also needs) in sea salt are the primary differences. This article expands on the differences. I've read quite a few articles on the topic and this is the best one I've found - it does a nice job explaining the two "categories" of salt. Remember that salt in normal amounts is good for our bodies, but as with everything, don't overdo it as it is linked to increases in blood pressure. http://ow.ly/NzeqN
