They say soy is good for you but there are two sides to every coin. Soy has been marketed to us as this healthy product with a great source of protein. In particular for women and vegetarians soy has been touted as a great alternative to cow’s milk. However, some people tend to disagree with this notion and based on the information that I have read and researched I tend to lean against soy products as well. In the end you are the master of your own destiny. I encourage you however to consider looking deeper into your health choices.

Did you know that Fiber is a critical part of living a healthy and active lifestyle? Apart from the benefits of helping lower cholesterol levels, fiber also contributes to creating a healthy digestive system. Fiber has also been linked to fat and weight loss from what experts believe to be the link between fiber’s ability to slow the uptake of sugars, which reduces the body’s insulin response. Studies have shown insulin to be a major factor in the bodies fat storage system.

Fiber is found in both soluble (easily dissolved in water) and insoluble (unable to dissolve in water) forms and it’s important that your body gets a combination of both on a daily basis. Oats typically contain a bit of both, but a major source of insoluble fiber is Psyllium Husk a plant native of Asia. Psyllium packs a whopping 7g of fiber per 100g. It’s used in various health products but can also be found in raw form at many grocers and health food stores.

Other natural sources of fiber include fresh fruits and vegetables, beans and whole oats. So what are you waiting for? Head to the market now and load up on fiber for fat loss, increased health benefits and help bolster the results from your active lifestyle.

I have a fair bit of Indian clients and due to certain religious practices, many are vegetarian; Not only that, but often times eggs are even ruled out as a part of the diet. So what do I recommend as a source of protein to this type of personal training client when they’ve just taken on an exercise regimen that has food limitations or restrictions?

There are many sources of protein available for vegetarians who do not consume eggs if you know where to look. A few Good sources of protein for vegetarians are Read more of this post
