Weight Loss and Protein: Have You Tried These Vegetarian Protein Sources?
(http://ow.ly/EfB330nv0UW)

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.

Hypothyroid or Menopause? How to Tell the Difference between These Conditions
(http://ow.ly/Xza230nv0UH)

Surprisingly, there are many similarities between hypothyroidism and menopause. You might notice weight gain, mood swings, and fatigue with both of these conditions. At Ka Wai Ola, your provider can help you balance your hormones. To determine the root cause of your imbalance (and which hormones are not balanced), your provider will order a blood test. Once your doctor has the results, your provider will balance your hormones.

Your Annual Exam: What Are "Normal" Numbers?
(http://ow.ly/BgTZ30nv0UU)

During your annual checkup, your doctor will take your vitals, which includes your pulse and your blood pressure. Wondering what all those numbers mean? Ideally, your blood pressure should be 120/80 or less. A healthy pulse can be anywhere from 60-100 beats per minute.

Tip: If you're ever not sure about one of your vitals, don't hesitate to speak up!

The Best and Worst Exercise for Your Heart
(http://ow.ly/9GgJ30nv0US)

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.
