Eat your Kiwis

Ok, I know kiwis have nothing to do with Muscle Activation Techniques but every now and then I’ll throw you some useful nuggets on nutrition.

Ounce for ounce, kiwifruit has more vitamin C than an orange and more potassium than a banana. It also supplies some folate, vitamin E and lutein, a carotenoid that may help keep eyes healthy.

For those that know me, I could stand to use a bit more carotenoids in my diet!

Trying to Lose Weight? Consider Laying off the Lattes

A recent University of North Carolina study observed that people consume 450 calories each day from beverages alone, amounting to an extra 23 pounds per year. At first, I thought 450 calories seemed pretty high, but it does make sense. Just think about the many beverage options: juice, milk, coffee (with cream and sugar), soda, tea, alcohol—and don’t forget those energy drinks.

For those trying to lose weight, you might want to consider what you drink first. You might be surprised about how many extra calories you actually take in. Check out this Men’s Health article for easy calorie-saving beverage swaps:
