The more I watch television or read online, the more aware of the term probiotics I become. Jamie Lee Curtis and Activa have been talking about it for years. But what do you really know about probiotics, other than the snippets you get on ads and tv commercials? What do you know about probiotics in water kefir, specifically? Water kefir…ah…that’s a new one, I bet.Water kefir is hitting the Internet waves much the same way kombucha or milk kefir is. They all originate from living grains or fungus. They need fermentation for the healthy properties that many seek when drinking. Water kefir junkies also live for the fizz.Water kefir is a healthy alternative to soda. The fountain never runs dry once you learn the art of making it. And it really is that easy: grains, water, and sugar. That’s it.Let’s talk about what water kefir is and why it’s good for you.What Is Water Kefir?Water kefir is said to have originated in two places, so it’s up to you to decide which version you want to believe. It is generally believed that water kefir got its beginnings in Mexico, thriving in the sugary water of the Ountia cactus (prickly pear). Others believe it started further back in Tibet when monks gave the grains to Mother Teresa of Calcutta.The word kefir comes from the Turkish word and means “feeling good.” Water kefir is a mild, zesty sugar-water beverage often compared to a natural, refreshing soda, and perfect for everyday drinking.Ferment at room temperature for 24-48 hours with fruit or lemon, and that’s it, sugary goodness to drink for a probiotic pick-me-up. Kefir has a low glycemic index and is caffeine free.Is Water Kefir Healthy?Kefir is loaded with digestible sugars, valuable enzymes, and beneficial acids, minerals, and vitamins. It supplies your body with tons of healthy bacteria and yeast. Unlike kombucha (made with tea) water kefir is caffeine free.How are bacteria beneficial? Your body is made up of billions of bacteria and yeast that support internal microflora support for digestion. Your body needs a healthy dose of probiotics to fight off bacteria, viruses, and yeast, which kefir provides.Research is also proving that kefir may be anti-mutagenic and help manage free radicals. The longer the drink is fermented the more folic acid and B vitamins are produced within.Drinking kefir may help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Kefir is proving beneficial to many, from improving digestion, building immunity from colds and viruses, and boosting energy. Besides the health benefits, many are drinking just because they enjoy the effervescence of a soda.What Does Water Kefir Taste Like?Water kefir can taste pretty much like you want it to. Do you like pink lemonade? Then make it out of strawberries and lemons. Do you like black cherry? Make simple syrup out of cherries, water, and sugar. Add to kefir and you have a great tasting black cherry soda-feel. Add a splash of vanilla, I like it that way and you will too.Some people make it out of basil and lemon, pineapple, grape juice, or just about anything you can think of. Don’t like what you make? Throw it out and try something different next time. The grains continually replenish, giving you a great, healthy alternative that is better than any soda anytime.Download Mevo app now from –App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/mevo-weight-loss-fitness/id1082646969?mt=8Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mevolife.mevo&hl=en...

When it comes to potatoes, the general consensus it that it is a delicious and versatile vegetable used in many dishes such as mashed potatoes and casseroles, and in fact, potatoes are the fourth most consumed food-crop in the world. But are potatoes really good for your health? And what are the nutritional differences in potatoes and sweet potatoes?Sweet potatoes and potatoes are both root vegetables originated from South America, but they have little in common apart from their origin and name. Potatoes can grow in most climates and soil, making it an easy crop to grow, but sweet potatoes tend to be more delicate.The sweet potatoes are not immune to cold weather and frost, and tend to be sensitive to daylight. The insides of sweet potatoes are not always orange or yellow, but sometimes can be purple.Purple sweet potatoes contain peonidins and cyanidins, which possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These properties, when passing through a person’s digestive system, can reduce the health risks posed by oxygen radicals and heavy metals.What about orange sweet potatoes?The orange colored sweet potatoes, on the other hand, are considered by some to be one of the best sources for beta-carotene, which convert into vitamin A, an essential vitamin.It is said that sweet potato alone could fill 90% of vitamin A needed for a day. Study shows that feeding sweet potatoes to children is an efficient way to provide children the necessary amount of vitamin A.Beta-carotene is also an antioxidant, and helps cleanse the body of toxin. To maximize the intake of beta-carotene in sweet potato, researchers suggest including 3 to 5 grams of fat, which converts into about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. The recommended method of cooking is boiling or steaming, as these two methods best preserve the nutrition in sweet potatoes.Potatoes get a bad rap from foods like French fries and potato chips but actually have many health benefits. Potatoes are very good sources of vitamin B6, and good sources of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid. Vitamin B6 is essential for the formation of new cells in the human body, and are active everywhere in the body.B6 is also needed to serotonin, which prevents depression, and melatonin, which provides your body with quality sleep. Potatoes also have antioxidant properties, which comes from the variety of phytonutrients they contain. Study states that potatoes also have the potential to lower blood pressure, effectively preventing disease. They also contain lots of fiber in their skin, so to take full advantage of potatoes, consuming potato skin is recommended. The best way to preserve most nutrients in potatoes when cooking them is steaming or roasting them without peeling off the skin.TakeawayIn conclusion, even though they share very little in common, both potatoes and sweet potatoes are great sources of various nutrients, and we honestly think both are great. Sweet potatoes are generally considered the healthier option because white potatoes are often related to greasy foods and fast food, but are actually quite good for you, and both are excellent options as long as you follow a healthy cooking method.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Playstore   iOS Appstore...

CARBOHYDRATES are like enemies to anyone who wants to lose weight. This is because many of us have been brainwashed into thinking that carbs lead to weight gain! The reality is that – THEY WON’T! Carbs are required by the body for energy and if you deprive your body of this essential nutrient it ultimately results on a gallon of moose tracks — and that certainly won’t help you lose weight.It is a lesser known fact that a diet which is packed with right and healthy kind of carbs is a secret to getting fit and staying slim for life. The use of work RIGHT creates a big differentiating wall as to which carbs you should and which you should avoid. “Right carbs = Resistant Starch”.In order to test this fact, there are various studies conducted in multiple universities which have highlighted that Resistant Starch helps you eat less, burn more calories, feel more energized and less stressed, and lower cholesterol too!A recent study has explicated that slimmest people ate the foods rich in carbs while the chubbiest people avoided them. Along with this, the studies have also come up with the fact that best diet to lose weight shall comprise of at least 64% of carbs! This makes it very clear that allowing your body for carbs is not a bad option but you should be careful in the selection.The major reason behind carbs playing a positive role in weight loss is that they act as a powerful appetite suppressant. Carbs are even more filling than proteins and are digested slowly which ultimately keeps you full for longer durations. This has also been proved by a study conducted in the University of Surrey, which explicated that participants who consumed Resistant Starch in one meal had 10% fewer calories the next day!In the long list of benefits of carbs, another one is that it helps to speed up the metabolism levels. Resistant starch speeds up your metabolism level and act as a natural fat burner as it releases fatty acids that encourage fat burning, especially in your belly.What else – the right type of carbs also helps to regulate blood sugar levels and control diabetes!Some of the rules to follow to maintain the right level of carbsconsumption:1. Eat one product that is rich in resistant starch at every meal.2. Portion size is a must – 1/4th of your plate should consist of good carbs.3. Don’t deprive yourself of anything be it chocolate, pasta, wine, bread or even chips… Moderation is the key to success!Some of the options for right type of carbohydrates:a) Quinoab) Barleyc) Popcornd) Roasted chickpease) Whole-grain rye crisp breadf) Sweet potatoesg) 2% Greek yogurth) Whole grain cereali) Oatmealj) Maple waterk) WatermelonSo, don’t say no to carbs but be careful and select the right type of carbs to boost up the weightloss process!...

In 1996, Peter J. D’Adamo published Eat Right 4 Your Type, a diet based on the belief that chemical reactions occur in the foods you eat and your blood type. This reaction is caused by Lectin, which is proteins that are found in food and have glue like (agglutinate) properties that affect your blood.The Blood Type Diet claims that when you eat foods containing lectins not compatible with your blood type, the lectins attack organs or systems within your body and begin to stick to those blood cells contained in that area. The theory behind this diet is that your specific blood type determines what foods you need to consume to best optimize your health. What does this diet involve? Is it truly the miracle diet that many swear by?What Is the Blood Type Diet?D’Adamo claims that each ABO blood type represents our ancestor’s genetic traits and which specific foods they thrived on in order to evolve and survive. D’Adamo’s theory is that each blood type needs the following foods for optimal health:Type O is referred to as the hunter, The theory is based on the fact that hunters thrive on high-protein diets comprised of meat, poultry, fish, certain vegetables and fruits, but limits grains, dairy, and legumes. The Paleo diet resembles this type of eating.Type A, called the cultivator, is based on eating a diet rich in plants and completely free of red meat, which is considered toxic. The vegetarian diet resembles this type of eating.Type B is often referred to as the nomad. Nomads eat plants and meats, with the exception of pork and chicken. This blood type should avoid corn, wheat, tomatoes, and lentils.Type AB is called the enigma. Because this is often described as a mix between types A and B, it is recommended to consume tofu, seafood, beans, grains, and dairy, avoiding beef, chicken, corn, and kidney beans.Is It Scientifically Based?Strong evidence does suggest that people with certain blood types have a higher or lower risk of certain diseases. People who have Type O blood seem to have a lower risk for heart disease, but have a higher risk of developing stomach ulcers.A study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked for studies grouping people according to individual blood type, and whether following the diet specific to their blood type made any difference in their overall health. After reviewing the entire biomedical and life science databases, the researchers could not find one single study showing that following the Blood Type Diet actually led to better health-related outcomes.What’s the Bottom Line?The Blood Type Diet doesn’t take into account individual medical history, current body type or age, the medications you are on, food allergies, or diet history. Choosing the ideal diet should account for all these factors.This diet isn’t particularly harmful, is just isn’t based on scientific fact. On this diet, you will avoid processed foods, which we all know isn’t good for the body anyway. The diet can quickly become expensive because it relies on organic foods as well as D’Adamo’s specific line of supplements.There is no research that suggests it aids in digestion or improves energy.

Working out is good for your body, great for your health, and can be lots of fun. But what if you don’t have enough time or money to get a gym membership? Don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to stay fit outside of the gym, including lots of fun exercises you can do at home. Here are some fun indoor exercises you can do anywhere! No equipment needed.Warm UpA warm up is essential to all exercises. It gets the blood moving, gets your heart rate up, and helps you prevent injury. Try to start every workout you do with a 2 to 5 minute warm up.Air SquatsAn air squat is the simplest form of the squat, performed without holding any additional weight. Stand with your feet a little wider than your hips. Send your hips back like you’re trying to sit down in a chair. Keeping your weight in your heels and your knees in line with your ankles, sit back as far as you can. Pause at the bottom, then stand all the way up, squeezing your seat at the top. Start your workout with 3 sets of 10 air squats.Arm CirclesNow it’s time to warm up the upper body. Start rotating your arms in large circular motions. Move faster and faster until you feel your heartrate start to pick up. Do this for one minute.Okay, now that you’re warmed up, it’s time to get serious.The Work OutThe idea during each of these exercises is to keep the intensity up. You should be out of breath and working hard the whole time. For this workout, use a 15-12-9 pattern. First, do 15 repetitions of each exercise, then do a round of 12 for each exercise, a round of 9, and you’re finished!BurpeesBurpees is the exercise that you love to hate, because it is so difficult, but so effective. Start in standing. Bend your knees and put your palms on the ground. Jump back into a plank position. Bend your arms until you are lying flat on the ground. Now push back up into plank, jump your feet back in between your hands, stand up straight, and jump. Repeat.Jumping lungesStart out standing. Take a big step forward with your right foot, sinking down into a lunge. Now, from this lunged position, jump up and switch your legs midair, landing in a lunge position with your left foot forward. If this is too challenging, just switch lunges without jumping.Push-UpsThis common exercise is popular for good reason. If done correctly, push-ups are a fantastic workout for your whole body. Come to plank position, with your hands slightly wider than your elbows. Squeeze the muscles in your legs, seat, and abs. Now bend your elbows so that they go backwards on a 45-degree angle. Lower yourself almost to the ground. Push yourself back up.A Killer At-Home WorkoutThese three exercises are specifically put together to hit all the major muscle groups in your body. You’ll work your legs, seat, abs, and arms, all in under 15 minutes! Don’t forget to spend 5 to 10 minutes stretching yourself out afterwards. This quick at home workout is effective and easy to do even in a small space. So, what are you waiting for!

Now you’ve probably heard that coconut water is good for your health, but did you know that coconut milk is also great for Health ? There are some misconception regarding the healthiness of this miracle drink due to its rich creamy texture and subtle sweetness, but these factors only make it a more delicious health drink than most others. Keep reading to find out why its time to stock up on some coconut milk.1. It helps you lose fat via coconut milkAlthough coconut milk has about 14 grams of fat in each serving (quarter cup, full-fat), its MCT or medium-chain triglycerides fatty acids actually help your energy spending, which can augment physical performance. The plethora of nutrients present in coconut milk also helps nourish your muscles, which can help in muscle building following your regular workout routine.The good kind of fats in coconut milk also helps you stay full for longer, which serves as a preventive measure for your tendency to overeat. Building muscle and helping you to control your intake are essential factors in losing body fat, which are enough to encourage you to consume coconut milk regularly.2. Coconut milk helps with constipationCoconut milk helps with the nourishment of the digestive tract due to its high nutrient and electrolyte content. It is also known to relieve indigestion and constipation in individuals, as it promotes healthy bacterial growth in the colon.3. Aids in blood sugar regulationDiabetics can also benefit from coconut milk as its fatty substances decelerate the sugar release rate in the bloodstream, which facilitates better insulin control in the patients’ bodies. Coconut milk is a great alternative in milk-based recipes and desserts due to its healthy richness and sweetness which are better for the body than added sugars.4. It is good for your heart?The fat content of coconut milk is essentially 50% lauric acid, a fatty acid which is associated with cholesterol levels improvement, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Studies were able to back up the claim of coconut milk’s cholesterol level improvement, as clinical trial results determined that individuals who took coconut milk had decreased LDL/bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) levels and had amplified levels of good cholesterol or HDL (high-density lipoprotein). This assures the general population that although coconut milk is “fatty”, it is not the bad kind, but rather beneficial than damaging.The mineral content of coconut milk can also help you lower your blood pressure, increase your blood vessel flexibility, and prevents plaque build-up, which contribute to greater heart health.5. It aids in ulcer preventionCoconut milk is also known to prevent the formation of ulcers and in reducing ulcer size. This can be attributed to coconut milk’s shielding effects on the ulcerated regions, which prevents pain in the area. This action of coconut milk is even better than coconut water’s ulcer preventive mechanism.Ideally, you should be looking for the organic or “cold pressed” coconut milk and avoid anything with added sugar, salt, preservatives or any other nasty chemical you don’t want in your food.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Play store   iOS Appstore...

 In an ideal world, we would all be fit and stay healthy without having to try, but in reality, staying healthy in today’s busy world is no easy task, especially if you need to stick to a budget. But worry not, for we know you are busy and have compiled a list of things that won’t drain your energy or break the bank.Here are two easy steps to follow if you are concerned about your health but too busy to devote much time or money:Eating healthy is a big part of staying healthy.Now, we know that many people think eating healthy on a budget means living on lettuce salad without dressing, but it really doesn’t have to be that boring… at least not all the time.The point is to focus on getting more protein, as these are what many people are missing from their budget diet. Some of our suggestions for affordable protein items include frozen chicken breast, tuna cans, plain yogurt, milk and eggs.Not all proteins are equal in quality, but animal protein tends to deliver all the amino acid we need. Incorporating more protein into your diet can really change the way you feel and look, as you will feel more energetic and will gain muscles more easily. Some other benefits of protein include lowered risk of premature death, lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and lowered risk of cancer.As an added bonus, your hair and nails would look great too.
