FITNESS & WELLNESS

How to fit exercise into your routine
The Huffington Post
We all know by now that maintaining an active lifestyle should be one of our top priorities in life. Only by taking care of ourselves do we stand a chance of being the kind of person we strive to be on the job, at home with our loved ones and in our communities. But that doesn't mean it's easy.

DIET & NUTRITION


Debunking the myth: Red meat and eggs not so bad after all
By Lauren Swan
The early 2000s were full studies that suggested people should no longer eat eggs or red meat due to health issues. Information came out that exposed the risks of eating eggs, which included heart disease and raised cholesterol levels. Red meat was accused of causing heart failure and heart disease. The following years saw Americans avoid red meat and eggs at all costs. But how correct were those studies? New research is now being presented in the U.K. and the U.S. that debunk the previous beliefs that eggs and red meat are hazardous for your health. Perhaps they're not so bad after all.

Competitor
