Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Jennifer Gillan who works for A.Vogel.
During winter, when we’re exposed to less sunlight, our serotonin levels are depleted. Serotonin is what is technically known as a neurotransmitter which in plain English means it helps messages pass down nerves to the muscles or organs they are meant for. Your internal communication network, when fired with plenty of serotonin, will be fully functional and your body will be a generally happier and more efficient place to hang out in. Lack of serotonin is associated with low mood, SAD syndrome and disturbed sleeping patterns. It can also, bizarre as it may sound, affect your weight.
Carbohydrate consumption can boost serotonin levels, so your body may crave …Read More

The Best ways to Lose Weight
Unfortunately there is no quick fix solution when it comes to losing weight. Even the cosmetic surgery route is not always an easy option. It can be painful and is almost always a relatively expensive option. The main surgical method used to remove body fat is liposuction. This is not a cheap option and can cost anywhere between £1500 and £5000, depending on where in the UK the treatment is carried out and on what part of the body. Cheaper surgery is available in countries such as Spain and Hungary, but of course there will be extra costs to factor in …Read More

In order to become successful as a bodybuilder you want your body to be in the best physical shape …Read More

There are always debates going on about what the key component is for losing weight and then maintaining that weight loss – is it diet or exercise? But what it really boils down to is burning off more calories than you consume. According to the Mayo Clinic, a single pound is lost through cutting 3,500 excess calories out of your diet a week, which breaks down to 500 calories a day. This can be done through diet or exercise – or both! One easy way to start eliminating calories is to cut out the processed, high calorie junk foods that we’ve gotten used to consuming and replace them …Read More
