Sometimes we forget about the twenty-somethings when talking about health and fitness. Most of the time, you’re at your lowest weight in your teenage years and then once you get into your 30’s, it’s all about how to look and feel like you’re in your 20’s…but what about when you’re actually IN that age range? Let me help you out with a few tips from some celebrities.
Superfoods. Let’s start by defining them. Superfoods are supposed to be healthier for you and they even (allegedly) help reduce the risk of cancer. They are a “nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.” So for example, blueberries, kale and salmon have been labeled superfoods. While they are typically high in antioxidants and vitamins, some scientists say they may be too high and Catherine Collins, a chief dietitian at London’s St. George’s Hospital says, “The term ‘superfoods’ is at best meaningless and at worst harmful. There are so many wrong ideas about superfoods that I don’t know where best to begin to dismantle the whole concept.” And lastly, there are no regulations for what is deemed an actual superfood. So pay attention when buying into the term, and beware of these in particular:
There’s always a new craze or trend sweeping the nation. Diets and “being healthy” will always be popular. The past few years, the trend has been juicing and smoothies. I can imagine that if done in moderation and the “proper” way, it can be good for you. But following a trend and not knowing why you’re doing it is the worst thing, if your goal is to really be healthy. A lot of times, it’s just as packed with sugar and other bad ingredients as everything else. And sometimes they’re just down right nasty. Check out some of the drinks you should STAY AWAY from…or at least do differently.
Weight. This is such a super sensitive topic for many people, celebrities included…no matter how “perfect” we may think their lives are, they suffer from a lot of the same insecurities as everyone else. Granted they have access to the best trainers, chefs, and nutritionists, but that doesn’t exclude them from the pressures of always being at your best. AND let’s not forget they have cameras on them practically 24/7. Not only does their weight tend to fluctuate due to life’s stresses, lack of control of your eating habits, pregnancy, etc., but sometimes they put the strain on their bodies on purpose.
