Looks tasty and nutritious too with the nutritional values per 'serving' of:

 

- 341 calories 

- 14.2g protein

- 8.6g fat (1.1g saturated)

 

High 5,

The 3-Legged Stool of Health

There are 3 key, inter-linked elements to living a healthy, happy and balanced life. These are 

- Exercise

- Nutrition

- Sleep/Rest

If any of these 3 elements are missing or not 'working' properly then we lose balance. Degree Search have produced this detailed, concise and informative infographic which has tips and advice on how to maintain balance in our lives and how we can exercise better, eat better and sleep better.

How Much Is a Pound of Fat?

It is a well known fact that to lose weight and 'just' 1 pound of fat, we have to burn or create a deficit of about 3,500 calories. This can be achieved through a mixture of exercise and diet. 

Exercise needs to be an aspect of our lifestyle alomgside healthy nutritional choices - exercise and nutrition go hand in hand and compliment each other. There are no quick ways and fixes to losing belly fat. Reducing the size of abdominal fat cells requires more than just cutting calories and therefore exercise should be a part of the equation.

10 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

Our metabolism is all the chemical processes that happen in our body that help to keep us alive and living and keeps our organs functioning normally, such as breathing and digesting food. These chemical processes require energy and this is called the basal metabolic rate (BMR).

It is our metabolic rate which determines the amount of calories we burn. Having a higher metabolic rate means that we are burning more calories - even at rest - which makes it easier for us to lose weight and also keep it off.
