3 Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

Today we’re talking about eating habits/schedules. Consider the age-old adage of Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and when we’re ‘supposed’ to eat. Well, now you’ll want to open your mind to the idea of adjusting all of that and amending your “feeding times” in a bid for a healthier body! Read on for more…

Omega-7: The Healthy Fat You’ve Never Heard Of

Recently, we’ve been digging up some of the more obscure gems of health and nutrition, so I’m not bucking that trend today. Omega-7 – chances are, you already have it in your diet; but what are the best sources? How much should you aim to get in a day? And – most importantly – what are the benefits to your health? Tuck into today’s post for more…

HMB – Heavily Overlooked, Massively Underrated

My second CXP Edge article delves headlong into one of the more obscure supplements on the market: HMB. In my last post about supplements, I gave you my Top Five – this one definitely snags the sixth spot if I were to extend the list! If you’re looking to drop bodyfat, but anxious about losing muscle, then read this post to put your mind at ease. HMB is the “supplement wingman” you’ll be needing!

The Misconception of Calories

Today touches upon the taboo of calories! The food industry masks them with “zeros”, and the vast majority of us are so über-concerned about them that restricting them becomes an obsession… Well, I’m here to clear up some of the confusion. In the Sales Industry they have a thing called “KYE” (‘Know Your Enemy’); as the age old adage goes – ‘Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer’. If calories are the enemy, then let’s get to know them inside and out, then that way we might be able to use them to our advantage! But seriously – war-strategy-puns aside – I want to help you better understand calories in a way that we start to appreciate them rather than fear them. Read on for more…

The Stagnating Effects of Inactivity

This post is [mostly] for the (proverbial) “newbies” – no matter if you’re Generation X, Y, a Boomer or even a Millenial. If you’ve never dipped a toe into the ocean of Health & Fitness, then this post should hopefully shed a little ray of light on the importance of pursuing an active lifestyle. If you’re younger (16-30 [ish]), then read this as a “preventative measure”; but if you’re any older (and/or suffer from any conditions such as Arthritis or Diabetes), then read this as a “rough guide on seeking out the right help”. Having met and worked with a wide array of people with these conditions (across all generations, a couple of examples include: a 17-year-old with Arthritis, a 32-year-old with Osteoporosis, and a 54-year-old with Relapsing Polychondritis [treated similar to Rheumatoid Arthritis]), the one thing that has been clear is that there is next to zero awareness of the fact that there are Specialist Fitness Professionals (who should be sought out), and they have the expertise to design appropriate fitness programs for anyone with these types of conditions. My hope is that this post encourages people to get involved with physical activity, regardless of age or condition.
