SEXercise ;)

 So its final our first Poll is over :) Here are the results



As you can see most of you Answered Sex as your favourite type of workout!! So here is an article to prove you that sex can be an effective exercise :) 


Who said that only by working your asses out is going to help keeping fit? Sex does too! People don't usually know about the beneficial effects of it, so I decided to enlighten this topic, shrouded in mystery.

 First of all by having sex you make a lot of your body muscles work because of the variety of positions. As a result, you keep your body in shape due to the fact that a large number of calories gets burnt.

Furthermore, in men - body testosterone levels increase. This means that the next day they are going to have more strength during the workout. So sex for us is something like a natural steroid. Not only is it a testo-booster but it also builds up stamina! Sex is a strong cardio exercise which can improve the endurance of our heart. When he have "sexy time" our heart beats faster so we burn fat! 



Finally, it's important to make clear that sex is a way of communication between a male and a female, it establishes in a way the "domination" of the man on the woman, in other words it gives to males what they want to feel and of course to females. It fills them with a sense of safety in their man's hands. This process is very significant for the psychological and mental health for both sexes.


In conclusion it would be good to point out that having sex is good and nice and natural BUT we must do this responsibly(using condoms). So now that you know a little bit more about sex...have fun and don't forget working out cannot replace sex, it can only make it better ;)

Fat Burning Anatomy and Useful Tips

Fat let it burn...
Fat Burning Analysis

"How can I lose weight?" people usually ask. That's a very interesting question we can easily answer, the only thing we have to do is to change the word "weight" with the word "fat".


 Losing weight is easily done by losing muscle mass when we don't eat properly, by sweating and urinating(water) and by burning fat. The last solution is what we should pursuit. So "how can I burn fat?". In order to achieve that goal we must know that fat burning is a process which gets initiated by our body's requirement for energy. This happens when the amount of the carbs we have taken gets burnt. For example when you run and the energy source provided from carbs gets depleted, your body starts burning fat in order to cover its needs. So we can understand that it's essential to workout performing cardio exercises and of course to restrict the carb portion

Finally, we should know that exercising is not enough if not followed by an effective and right eating schedule.
A right diet is the 60% of your whole effort while the exercising the 40%!

I'm giving you some of my tips below, which I hope they will help you.
Fat Burning Tips


  1. Run! Put your trainers on and go the distance! Keep jogging on a standard pace without ups and downs!
  2. Eat every 3 hours in order to boost your metabolism!
  3. Drink 7-9 l of water daily!
  4. Lift! Weight exercises help you lose fat, the more intensive the more fat you burn!
  5. Give junk food up! 
  6. Give sweet up!
  7. Give sugar up, replace it with sugar substitutes such as stevia!
  8. Never eat big meals before bedtime! A lettuce salad with yogurt will be the best choice!
  9. Be patient and insistent! 


Don't forget "No pain, no gain!" You may exhaust yourself, while the others relax their asses on a couch drinking coffee, but don't give up...There's always a summer waiting in the end of the road!!!

Easter Nutrient

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE That's a video in greek made by me :)  Just want to emphasize to importance of eggs in the daily nutrition. Especially those Easter days that eggs are on every table. Eggs are a great source of protein and the whites are always in Bodybuilders and fitness's athletes diet around the world. But you must contain the consumption of the yolks, especially those with high cholesterol levels.


Check this site for everything about the eggs :) Found it and i think theres more to it that i can say:) http://www.eggs.ca/eggs101/view/22/egg-nutrition

Eat and dont get fat !!

What if i tell you a way to eat and dont get fat??


You might thing im joking but im not :) Seriously there is a way and it is called SALAD!! In other words grass or green..


Salad is an effective way to diet due to the fact that lettuce is a fibrous carbohydrate. Fibrous carbs are foods such as leafy green vegetables like lettuce and broccoli that are filling, but don’t contain many calories. These are vastly different than starchy carbohydrates. Starchy carbs are foods like potatoes, rice, and breads that are much higher in calories. Since salad’s main ingredient is a low calorie, yet filling food…it is the perfect diet food.  


Also Salad is the cheaper meal :) It needs a little time to clean the veggies but thats all.

 I know most of you now think of this

Not the green one im gonna puke!!
But there are many ways to make your salad very tasty and even tastier than

junk foods. What i do is add lemon,chicken,tuna,eggs or nuts :) I sometimes add balsamiko vinegar (βαλσαμικο ξυδι) a thing that really makes the differance in the taste.

Here are some of my many creations in order to give you some ideas :) I eat them usually at night but thats an issue we will discuss another time..

Lettuce with tommatoe,carrot,green pepper and corn

Green salat with lettuce nuts and dried bread

Green salad with tuna,corn and dried bread



 Please feel free to comment your opinions about salad below!!

Protein Sources & Fat Facts

Today's issue is essential knowledge for everyone, who works out and would like to stay in shape. 

Protein
What concerns every athlete is the protein portion they get. As we know proteins are a nutritious ingridient category, which in our case, help muscles rest and heal after workout. The question is where can we find these ingredients. Food such as pultry, red meat, eggs, fish, diary products and legumes contain a rich amount of protein! Another question is how much protein should we take in daily basis. It's 1.1-1.5 times our bodyweight in grams, for example if I am 85 kg then the recommended protein amount for me is  93.5-120.7max grams. That's all the basics we need to know about protein
and don't forget sometimes it's important to use protein supplements(whey e.t.c) because eating a whole chicken(50gr aprox. of protein) not only is it difficult but sometimes impossible, but supplements will concern us another time. 




Fats

Fats make up the energy storage of our body, which starts getting burnt after all the glucose and other carbohydrates we have taken, get burnt. Without fat we can barely live. A decent fat percentage at a male body is 12-9%, below it's aesthetics ideal. At a female body the decent percentage is 20-17 and the ideal below 16. There are 3 kind of facts that are included in food: Saturated fats, unsaturated fats and trans fats. Starting from the third category, it's important to say that is the "useless" one and that because it can cause heart problems and moreover cancer. They are found in junk food. Saturated fats are usually found in red meat and fish(in low percentages). In big amounts can cause heart problems and they are hardly-burnt, so we have to avoid them as much we can. Unsaturated fats are found in peanut butter, avocados e.t.c. This kind can easily get burnt by our body and it's the least dangerous.

Why should you learn Capoeira :)

Capoeira is at once a widely communal and a deeply individual experience. Once you become a capoeirista, you form an instant bond with thousands of people across the globe who share your passion. At the same time, you will gain the ability to do things that most of the general public could never dream of doing, and in doing so you will discover a true sense of uniqueness.
If you want to start capoeira, or if you’ve ever seen capoeira and were curious about it, you’ve come to the right place.
If it wasn’t clear from the superhero-like bodies that some capoeiristas have, capoeira has some impressive health

benefits
, such as:

  • Strength: Capoeiristas are always moving around on their hands in handstands, rolls, poses, etc. that can make a drastic improvement on upper body strength. They also perform many jumping kicks and movements that definitely improve leg strength.
  • Flexibility: Some capoeiristas are on par with yoga practitioners in terms of their flexibility.
  • Cardio and Stamina: Intense capoeira games can require enormous amounts of energy. This, combined with constant repetition of movements and techniques, makes capoeira a valuable cardio exercise.
Photo from our 1st Auth Batizado
  • Overall Fitness: Capoeira will improve your strength, flexibility, and stamina, thus improving your overall fitness. It may take a while to become fit, but once you start to take capoeira seriously you can become the picture of health.
In addition to the numerous health benefits that capoeira offers, it can also improve your social life:
  • Meet new people: When you join a capoeira group, you become part of a family. You will meet people from all over the world, and you will definitely make new friends along the way.
  • Learn a new language: You may not become fluent (though that’s always a possibility), but there is no doubt that you will come to understand and perhaps speak a bit of Brazilian Portuguese.
  • Learn about a new culture: Capoeira is deeply connected to Brazil. In a time when many martial arts are reduced to aerobic workouts and cookie cutter dojos, capoeira maintains all of its roots and traditions. Maybe you’ll even develop a taste for Brazilian food!
  • Gain confidence: If nothing else, capoeira is perfect for instilling a sense of pride and confidence in anyone who plays. Not only will you feel stronger and more courageous once you become comfortable in the jogo, you’ll find confidence in knowing that you are unique among your (non-capoeira) peers because you can do things they couldn’t imagine doing.

Ideal Breakfast

For me there is this ideal morning.. The most important meal that everyone forgets is the breakfast..It must be something that can give you energy to start your day :)
My personal favourite and an all time classic is a bowl of oats or cerial with many fiber. I mix them with greek yogurt of 2% fat or milk of 2% ofc :) My choice is always yogurt (costs more) but does it makes you feel full.. I also add some nuts and a 1/4 of spoon honey!! Some times to add up calories i mix it with a bananna. Also mornings are the perfect hour to take protein supplements .So you have protein,carbs and fiber to start the day :)  And let the number speak we have yogurt 200g has 19.2 g protein (kinda high) and 7,6 g carb and my cerial about 5.1 g protein and 24.5 g carbs.
                           So tell me whats your ideal breakfast?? :) Im interested in your opinions.

Water!! Its a MUST!!

OK i think everyone knows that water is somethink you cant live without BUT you must drink sufficient amount of water per day.. Studies show that men should drink more than 3 liters a day and women more than 2.2. If you think carefully most people forget to drink these amounts so i will provide some TIPS :)


TIPS


  • Carry a bottle of water for easy access when you are at work or at home.
  • Always have a bottles of water in the fridge.Take one with you for ice-cold water all day long
  • Choose water instead of beverages when eating out.Generally you will save money and reduce calories
  • Think about adding lemon to the water to make it more tasty 
  • Start counting the water you drink.That way you will be able to drink more by the end of the day when needed.

    Im sure i missed enough so be free to comment your opinions :)

Basic of Carbs PART I

You got the point Carbs ;)

What Are Carbohydrates?

Carbohydrates, along with fats and proteins, are one of the three main classes of food. Carbohydrates are organic compounds consisting mainly of sugars, starches and fiber.
Plants make carbohydrates during photosynthesis and store them as any of the saccharides (sugars). They are used primarily for energy in the body. If carbohydrate isn't used in short order, it is stored. A certain amount can be stored in the liver and muscles asglycogen, and the rest is stored as fat. Unlike protein and essential fats, our bodies can get along without dietary carbohydrate if needed. 
So dont forget Carbs. To but it simple these are your energy.. You cant train like an anthlete without comsuming a good amount of carbs..Its most prefable at the morning and pre-post morkouts.. BUT you must prefer the good sources of carbs like pasta and honey not these sugar canded shit :* Im sorry but i dont like sweets :P
