If you’re looking for another reason to eat more fruits, vegetables, and berries look no further than to take Juice Plus every single day! In an effort to understand more of the relationship between the uptake in consumption of fruits, vegetables, and berries there was a massive study done in Europe with a sample self-administered questioner in involving over 100,000 people. Participants between the ages of 40-85 were asked about their daily intake of fruits, vegetables, and berries among other health related questions. During the next 15 years following the study there were nearly 12,000 deaths. Individuals consuming 5 or more servings of fruits, vegetables, and berries a day had a much lower morality rate than those who did not consume at least 5 a day. The lowest group of people that consumed the least fruits, vegetables, and berries per day over a three year period had a 55% more chance of death than those who consumed at least 5 or more servings per day. To demonstrate the health gains from and berries alone, those individuals who never consumed fruit lived nearly 2 years less than those who ate one piece of fruit a day. Vegetables are even more important as the study showed that the individuals who consumed at least 3 servings of vegetables a day lived nearly 3 months longer than those who never consumed vegetables. It’s not rocket science or even new information. Everyone knows that eating more fruits, vegetables, and berries along with exercise can improve every aspect of your life and give you more years of life to live. Like the saying goes, ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ In simplest terms, healthy eating is about getting back to basics. Today, healthcare professionals know more than ever about how health and wellness are influenced by nutrients from fruits and vegetables. But healthy eating takes time, planning, and can cost a lot of money. With today’s busy lifestyles from busy moms to traveling executives to active seniors it’s easy to miss out on the nutrients we need from fruits and vegetables. That’s why adding Juice Plus+ to your diet is an important step for you and every member of your family. It’s a simple, affordable way to fuel your body with good nutrition. New studies find that an individual should now try to consume up to 10-12 servings of fruits, vegetables, and berries a day. Unless you have a private chef following you around every day and making sure meals are prepared you probably are not getting enough fruits, vegetables, and berries in your diet. Most of us suffer from a daily fruit and vegetable consumption gap. Putting the right foods into our bodies is a struggle. Fast food restaurants and all-you-can-eat buffets lurk on every corner. Fat, salt, and sugar have been added to almost every package on the shelf at the grocery store. Grabbing a bag of chips or a can of soda at the convenience store is easier than peeling an orange or tossing a salad.
Well, before you buy those so called “healthy” protein shakes or every VITAMIN Dr. Oz says you “need” consider this first:
* It is a whole food supplement or isolated vitamins?
* Are the ingredients harmful or artificial?
* Is it really gong to make me “healthy” and how do I know this for sure?
* Is there published research proving their claims?
* How do I know it will get absorbed into my body?
As you shop for your health, instead of taking something just because the label makes it sound good, I encourage you to do what I did and really “RESEARCH IT” yourself! I personally don’t feel the need to take a multivitamin (I think it’s better to get our “vitamins” from plant sources like fruits & vegetables and the media just stated this last week), which is why I decided to get the nutrition I need from Juice Plus+. For the past 6 years, it’s been my primary supplement because it’s simply FRUITS & VEGETABLES IN CAPSULE and in Gummy form made for children or those who have trouble with swallowing pills. Juice Plus has been Published in 31 RESEARCH STUDIES in order to prove it gets into our blood stream and it does good things for our health.
You can visit my personal Juice Plus online store at www.jnunnjuiceplus.com to read all of the studies and even watch a video on how it is made. After all of my workouts at the Roworx Fitness Center I also make sure to drink the Juice Plus Complete Shakes as they are loaded with PLANT BASED NUTRITION (nothing artificial). I also take Fish oil and or COQ 10 and try to eat lots of raw fruits & vegetables every day, but like most, I fall short. Which is why I use Juice Plus+ as my nutritional insurance to make sure I bridge the gap and get at least 12-15 servings of fruits, vegetables, and berries in my system every single day!

“My goal is to run and train for a triathlon this year”… sound familiar?
This can be a very invigorating and motivating goal to attain. However, most people end up training too hard while not listening to their bodies and in the process get stress fractures, sprains, and strains.
Here is a list of my top three ways to prevent stress fractures, sprains, and strains throughout the body during certain types of high impact exercise.
#1 Get Some Good Running Shoes and Avoid Running on Hard Surfaces
Get some shoes that save your joints and allow you to run non-stop and pain free. I am 6’3 220lbs and have had two knee surgeries.
I finally found some shoes, the Asics Kinsei 5, that have allowed me to continue running full Ironman’s and more without feeling too much pounding on the joints.
Another way to avoid stress fractures is to avoid hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt.
Choose dirt trails, sand, or grass to run on in order to save your joints for the rest of your life.
#2 Try Adding Rowing to Your Training Schedule
High-Impact exercises such as running have been shown to actually increase bone density over time. However, the continuous day after day impact and jarring on the bones, joints, and ligaments can gradually weaken the bones and cause harmful damage over time.
Just like anything else throughout your body, the bones need a reasonable amount of time to respond and aggressive doses of stress and impact cannot necessarily be managed effectively ultimately leading to an injury.
Instead of just running every day, monitor your workouts and try to alternate day to day while participating in low-impact exercises like rowing or cycling every other day to compliment your running.
Not only will this prevent stress fractures and other injuries due to high impact, it may help to promote stronger supportive running muscles throughout the body.
There really aren’t any better exercises than the low-impact, calorie-burning, workouts that indoor rowing classes provide.
#3 Avoid Overuse and Overtraining in Order to Maintain a Healthy Body Free of Stress Fractures
While rowing in college at UC Berkeley and then on the US National Team it seemed like the logic behind training was ‘training more and training more often is always better.’
In 1998, when it was my freshman year at Cal, it was all about how many miles could we row each day. Our goal was at least 16 miles a day on the water or on the rowing machine.
After my 1st year in college it seemed to get more and more involved until I found myself training seven days a week and rowing three times a day with little to zero time to rest.
This training led to many athletes suffering from stress fractures and other complications and sickness. Overuse and overtraining is considered to be one of the major causes of stress fractures, sprains, and strains.
Running, rowing, or any other sport while training too many hard days without enough time to recover can lead to an incredible amount of stress throughout the body.
Even a single workout or goalpractice can have a detrimental effect on the body and can lead to a stress fracture. These injuries also are attributed to muscle imbalances throughout the body.
That is why it is so important to cross train and look at different exercises like yoga, weight lifting, indoor rowing, or cycling in order to create a balance between major muscle groups in the body.
Also Make Sure to Set Realistic Training Goals and Keep a Logbook to Keep Yourself Motivated Throughout the Year
In starting an exercise program try to be realistic and conservative in order to avoid serious injury. Outline a training guideline based on your own past experiences and plan appropriately.
General guidelines call for three workouts spread out during the week for 30-45 minutes each in duration. As your fitness gets better after a month or two increase the amount of time you work out and also the frequency.
Use the F.I.T.T.”E.” Principal in order to get in better shape at a faster pace. How (F.) Frequent are you working out per week? How (I) Intense are your workouts? How Much (T) Time are you spending during your workouts? What (T) Type of workouts are you doing?
I actually personally added the ‘E’ to the equation because you are what you eat! You must think about what are you (E) Eating to make sure you get the proper amount of fruits, vegetables, and berries in your system.

Over the next few weeks there are going to be a ton of holiday events and parties that can easily be attended. Christmas, New Years, Super Bowl, The Oscars, Valentines Day, and then right on into St. Patricks Day as we head into summer. While attending these events think about the constant availability of high sugar, alcohol, and high fat foods everywhere you go over the next few months. Unlike a well-balanced meal, comfort foods throw off caloric norms and can disrupt metabolic hormones. Not paying particular attention to composition of the foods consumed during this Holiday season can promote increased lipid production and even contribute to greater food intake. Make a concious effort to minimize and balance your eating habits so that you don’t consume large quantities of sugar and processed carbohydrates. Oftentimes the fat in food is perceived as the bad guy when in reality the foods high in sugar create high glycemic loads and promote fat production and storage in response to higher levels of circulating insulin. Also plan on balancing protein and add healthy fats like raw nuts and berries to your diet whenever possible. Most of us suffer from a daily fruit and vegetable consumption gap. Putting the right foods into our bodies is a struggle. Fast food drive-thrus and all-you-can-eat buffets lurk on every corner. Fat, salt, and sugar have been added to almost every package on the shelf at the grocery store. Grabbing a bag of chips or a can of soda at the convenience store is easier than peeling an orange or tossing a salad. Juice Plus+ can help you fill that hole in your diet through whole food based nutrition.
If you want to watch your weight and food intake over the holidays make sure to try and gauge how many caolories you are consuming in one day. In simplest terms, healthy eating is about getting back to basics, by following the latest USDA guidelines, like those from USDA’s My Plate. Doctors and healthcare professionals know more than ever about how health and wellness are influenced by nutrients from fruits, vegetables, and berries. But healthy eating takes time, planning, and can cost a lot of money. With today’s busy lifestyles, from busy moms to traveling executives to active seniors, it’s easy to miss out on the nutrients we need from fruits and vegetables. That’s why adding Juice Plus+ to your diet is an important step for you and every member of your family. It’s a simple, affordable way to fuel your body with good nutrition. Make it a policy to consume five or more servings of fresh fruits and vegetables along with lean proteins such as egg whites for breakfast. This will help reduce total calories and limit the consumption of unhealthier foods you will be tempted with during evening events. You’ll feel fuller and therefore will be less likely to over consume at the social gathering.
A fitness and nutrition journal will give you a great base/foundation for the goals you want to strive for on your fitness quest. Writing down what exercises you’re going to do for the day or week will give you a solid gameplan to follow. You can always adjust your workout journal when you see fit, but just having something written down will help you greatly. Some examples of what to write down in your fitness and nutrition journals make sure to include various exercises you’re going to do for the day, Sets of the workouts you are doing, Number of Repitions you will be doing for that particular workout, A Nutrition and Meal plan, the amount of water you drink per day, Cardio (Frequency, Type, Time, Intensity), and you can also include Time/Hours of sleep and Stress (financial, relationship, work, etc.)
Small portions of everything that’s available add up to big numbers. All too often when presented with buffet style options over the holidays, we serve ourselves to the point that food actually piles up or we need a second plate. Although you may only be taking one scoop of stuffing, or one roll, or one helping of meatballs, etc. the fact that so many choices are available and you would like to try each one, almost ensures overeating. The first step is not filling your entire plate. Or better yet, use the smallest plate available. Doing so will limit how much you eat after the first pass at all the tempting options that are available. You can always return for another helping, if necessary. Most people take too much initially, attain a feeling of fullness, but continue to finish the food so as not to waste it.
Be sure to look at other options first before diving into all those holiday deserts this season. Fruit can be a great substitute for the cookies, chocalates, or any other ’empty calorie’ desert. Desserts all look so good and self-control is difficult for most people. The same problem with portion control exists as noted in #4 and most often too many calories have already been consumed in the appetizers and the main course. A restaurant shot glass serving style is a great way to present dessert options. It automatically accounts for portion control because the glasses are generally small. It also avoids the leftovers phenomenon, where people continue to eat until the whole dish is gone.
There is a big difference between the amount of sleep you can get by on and the amount you need to function optimally. Just because you’re able to operate on seven hours of sleep doesn’t mean you wouldn’t feel a lot better and get more done if you spent an extra hour or two in bed. The best way to figure out if you’re meeting your sleep needs is to evaluate how you feel as you go about your day. If you’re logging enough hours, you’ll feel energetic and alert all day long, from the moment you wake up until your regular bedtime. The quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort
Who has the time to workout, train, and be disciplined on fitness on their own? Studies show that we are motivated to work harder, show up more often, and push further past our perceived limits when training in a group. The results of one study suggest that endorphin release is significantly greater in group training than in individual training; this seems to be the case even when the individual’s power output, or physical exertion, is the same. Not only is it more fun to exercise with others, but it is safer and more efficient to exercise under the leadership of a good coach. With the help of our amazing instructors you are sure to have a great time in any of our four class programs that we have to offer.

Not a multivitamin, medicine, treatment or cure for any disease, Juice Plus+ is all-natural and made from quality ingredients carefully monitored from farm to capsule so you can enjoy improved nutrition and wellness. Try Juice Plus+ today.
Throughout the following blog I will display another reason why there is yet another good reason to start an exercise program. There are new scientific research studies that prove exercising throughout the day can modify the activity in which a fat cell is stored in the body. The two different kinds of fats in the body are easily described as ‘white’ fats and ‘brown’ fats.
Throughout the past few months I have put the Evo Indoor Fitness Bike to the test by racing and winning several triathlons around Southern California.
