Here’s How Many Minutes You’d Need to Walk Each Day to Lose Weight.

According to a Trainer May 13, 2019 by Caitlyn Fitzpatrick 29K Shares Walking may seem too simple to be an effective form of exercise, but if you play your cards right , this familiar movement can be a lean, mean, weight-loss-generating machine While a casual 10-minute stroll won’t do it, you don’t need to spend hours on your feet, either.

“You should aim for about three to five sessions of cardio a week that are around a half hour,” Courtney Meadows , an NASM-certified personal trainer and fitness coach, told POPSUGAR.

For beginners, even walking 10 minutes a day is a great place to start Increasing your walking time by just five minutes will get you there.

Courtney suggests walking at an easy pace for five minutes or more to warm up and get your body ready to burn fat ADVERTISEMENT Step Up Your Walking Workouts With These Power Tips “If you can, it’s best to use a heart rate app when walking to make sure you’re in the right zone for fat loss.

Courtney explained

“After the warmup, you’ll want to get your heart rate to 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate ,” which you can find by subtracting your age from 220 “You’ll want the majority of your workout to be in this stage with a five-minute cooldown,” she said While finding a cardio regimen that gets results is important,

Courtney noted that it should also be one you enjoy When exercise becomes second nature, it’s much easier to stay on track.

Weight loss medicines underutilized by veterans

Despite the availability of new weight management medications and several clinical guidelines recommending their use as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for obesity, a new study has found that their use is extremely low (about one percent) among eligible Veterans.

Being female, having higher body mass index (BMI), obstructive sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, depression, low back pain and alcohol abuse was associated with greater likelihood of using these medications.

However, being over the age of 65, Hispanic race/ethnicity and required copayments was associated with lower odds of their use.

Obesity is a chronic disease that compromises quality of life, increases healthcare costs, and is a risk factor for and increases morbidity from diabetes, depression, hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and several cancers.

In 2017, the prevalence of obesity among the Veterans Health Administration (VA) patient population was 41 percent while 37 percent were overweight.

To address this issue, every VA facility now offers MOVE!, a comprehensive behavioral weight management program, to any veteran who is overweight or obese. MOVE! has evolved into the largest health-care based weight management program in the country.

Any veteran who is engaged in MOVE! or a similar behavioral weight management program is eligible to receive weight management medication.

“Of the more than 150,000 participants in MOVE!, only about one percent receive weight management medication,” said Varsha G. Vimalananda, MD, MPH, from the Center for Healthcare Organization & Implementation Research at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

According to the researchers, this low rate of use is also similar to non-VA settings where less than two percent of potentially eligible patients in the general population are treated with these medications.

“The comparably low rates of use of medicine in and outside the VA are surprising. Insurance coverage is a major barrier to use outside the VA, but is a much lesser issue in VA, where veterans can receive them at no or relatively low out-of-pocket cost,” explained Vimalananda, an assistant professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine.

The researchers believe clinician or patient barriers beyond insurance drive underuse of these medications for Veterans as well as the general population and that additional research is needed to better understand these obstacles.

Relieve Seasonal Allergies

Spirulina is known for fighting allergies. Preliminary research shows that spirulina bonds effectively to allergens, stops the release of histamines and can help prevent sniffling, sneezing and watery eyes during hay fever season


Boost Energy Levels

The chlorella in Super Algae is naturally rich in a biologically active form of energy boosting Vitamin B12 While spirulina also includes B12, it’s in a form that our body can’t use.

This is one of the key reasons why we include both chlorella and spirulina in our formula. Studies also suggest chlorella may help fight anemia which can be a real drain on energy levels.

While eating healthily is obviously important, it may not be enough for a variety of reasons.

We are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that the nutrients in today’s food are not what it used to be due to farming practices that focus on yield and pest control and result in degraded soil and less nutrient-dense crops (Davis, 2006; Davis, Epp & Riordan, 2004; Mayer, 1997).

A Monster of Toxin Sucking Superfoods

Further, we only are able to absorb the nutrients that we can digest, so the healthy function of one’s digestive system impacts the nutrients available for healing despite all the wonderful foods we might be eating.

The societal overuse of antibiotics coupled with the Standard American Diet (SAD) of processed foods means that it is most likely your patients are coming to you with less than optimally functioning digestive systems.

In light of these points, it is a good idea to make supplementation with a good quality whole food supplement part of your treatment plans so the nutrients your patients need for healing are readily available. 

There are many pharmaceutical-grade synthetic supplements on the market that, while they claim high values of various nutrients, they are not recognizable as real food by our intelligent bodies and are therefore not absorbed.

Warning: do not take Super Algae if you have a severe seafood or iodine allergy, hyperthyroidism or are pregnant. If you have an autoimmune disease, please consult with your physician before taking chlorella or spirulina.
