Eat an Apple a Day and Keep the Doctor Away; Why Apples are so Good for You (via Health is a Habit’s Blog)

I’ve been eating an average of 2 apples per say for the last 4 months or so and I can attest that not only do I feel great, but my digestive system seems to be on hyperdrive. Apples of course have a great deal of fiber which not only has fat loss properties, but cholesterol lowering capabilities. Apples are also high in insoluble fiber, which is great for your intestines and colon health.

I know that apples can be boring so I often mix things up with my apples. Some days I will put two apples in a protein shake. Other days I’ll just have two apples outright. Some days I will spread peanut butter over slices of apple or raw organic almond butter for a balanced and healthy snack and other days I will dice them and put them in a salad. Whatever you choose, be sure to incorporate apples in your diet as a part of a healthy and nutritious lifestyle.

Dressing for Success; How Your Salad Dressing Can Help Decrease Body Fat

Many people ask where my inspiration for articles comes from. As a trainer and fitness coach in Bangkok, I’ve had the opportunity to help many people reach their fitness goals. Anyone who has been to Bangkok knows that there’s a tailor on every street corner, but not just any tailor can dress you for success like Rajawongse Clothiers. From US presidents to diplomats and executives Jesse and Victor keep men around the world looking sharp. Victor happens to be a client of mine and while working together we managed to shave 10kg of body weight and about 5% body fat. A major part of this success was what he consumed on a daily basis. Sure there were lots of salads, but they can be quite boring and when dressed wrong do more harm than good.

So you toss a salad together with a variety of vegetables and you’re left wondering, now what shall I dress it with? Read more of this post
