Crucial Step #1 to losing Weight - Eat Your Protein

Through a great deal of testing and scientific evidence, it has been shown the protein levels HIGHER than what has been suggested by the government is optimal for weight loss, but with more protein intake-you must decrease your carbohydrate intake. How much protein you ask? Depending on how active you are thru the day is a determining factor. Fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders are encouraged to consume about 1-1.5 grams per pound of body weight. Others should be targeting at least, 50 grams per day of protein. Recommendations for weight loss, is to consume 30 percent protein (600 calories), 30 percent carbohydrates (600 calories), and 40 percent fat (800 calories). Do not snack and do not eat after dinner at night. Eat either two or three meals a day. Keep carbohydrates low and definitely watch your carbohydrate intake for dinner. Bon Appetit

Pugs + Biomat = Happiness

You wonder why all the pugs and so energetic, happy and full of life?? Duke and Will may be a bit large, but they know how to move their bodies…..And yes, I know, they can stand to have a little less in their doggy bowls too. How can they be sooo round yet move so fast? Their energy comes from being put on the Mini Bio-Mats or when I snoose, they join me on the large one. We all know that the mats contain amethyst as well as precious tourmaline, and it's becoming more frequent for vets to recommend that their pet clients purchase one. Pets love the warmth of the Biomat and infrared lightwaves are excellent for improving pets' health and for prevention of illness. In vet offices, a mini mat can calm a nervous pet very quickly! The results affect the pets the same way we get results….
