Reasons You Should Have More Milk in a Diet

While it might not be the drink of choice for most of us, milk should be a very important piece of your food plan. I hear you saying that milk is high in calories and fats, how could it possibly help me achieve a better body? Milk is a beverage that is full of calories, this is true but looking closer at what makes up this dairy product, you will begin to see why milk is a better choice for you, than you have previously thought it was. The main reason why I love drinking as much milk as my stomach can handle is, in part, due to it being a great way to gain weight. People who say that are sick of being scrawny are likely consuming large quantities of soda, when the answer is right in front of them.

I enjoy a great cola as much as the next person but if you don’t want to be small, ditch the soda for a big glass of milk. When compared to soda, both drinks will be high in calories but milk adds protein and fat, whereas soda only adds carbs and sugars. If you don’t like the taste of regular white milk, there are many various syrups and powders you can use to make the drink taste more like something you want to have. You know about the chocolate and strawberry flavors but there are some more wild ones that I’ve seen, including: banana, cotton candy, and even blueberry! Regardless of what flavor you choose to have, what should be taking place is that you are drinking milk, in one form or another. Besides being a great way to get extra calories and an excellent source of protein, milk also contains many different vitamins.

One that I’ve heard many arguments over is Vitamin D. It almost seems like the entire public opinion has shifted, from once loving this vitamin to it now being seen as something of a troubling ingredient. I would hate to talk up a vitamin that is being studied so closely right now, so I will instead mention some other vitamins in milk that you should be getting the right amount of. Naturally, it makes sense that milk is usually recommend at a top way to get bigger. You have likely heard for years that milk will do nothing but make you fat, of course, this isn’t entirely true. To say that any food or drink will make you fat is kind of a nonsensical thing to say, anything can fatten you up, provided that you have enough of it. If you want to limit your intake of milk, that is entirely possible to do. A great thing about milk is that you won’t need to drink glass after glass to reap the benefits that it will give you, one serving does pack quite a powerful vitamin and nutrient punch! Whether you prefer as part of a shake, to help get down the taste of milk, or, if you prefer to have it straight up in a glass, either option will be great to make use of. One thing that I would suggest to those who are wanting milk but can’t stomach drinking it would be to make a milk cake. I’ve only had this delicacy once before, so I have no clue how to make it. Perhaps, the cooks that are reading this can whip up a nice little recipe. I wanted to bring up the milk cake because it tastes amazing and can be an easy way to sneak some beneficial milk into your diet.

Picking A Box for the Fitness Enthusiast in Your Life

If you don’t know much about them, the subscription box has taken off like wildfire. At first, I only remember seeing these monthly boxes of goodies being catered to the nerdy crowd, of which I proudly consider myself. Now, there are boxes and crates loaded with monthly goodies for just about every subject you could think of and probably some none of us could imagine. While I could spend all day talking about the different kinds of subscription boxes, I want to get down to the nitty gritty and talk about the fitness themed boxes, that is what we are here for, after all. With that in mind, I’ve picked my personal three favorite boxes for you to have a look at. I chose the three picks below mainly due to the quality of the products, pricing, and different options that were being offered. Women, stick around as I have selected a special box for all of you below.
1st pick – Jacked Pack
One drawback of most of the subscription boxes out there would be the price. Sure, there are many different subscription services that offer their customers goodies at a reasonable price but many have me wondering if I want to pay that price every month, not the Jacked Pack, as it is very well priced. You’ll only have to spend about $15, in order to get 5-10 samples, provided by some very big named supplement companies. It’s important to note that all supplements will be sample sized, usually good enough for one or two servings. However, you are allowed to select which flavors of supplements you prefer, which is great, plus you also get to tell them what your fitness goals are. By knowing your goals, you won’t be getting supplements that don’t help you but products that are tailored to your goals.
2nd Pick – Strength Crate
If you have more of a budget to work with, you could want to go with the Strength Crate. While this box does carry a larger monthly price tag, you also get more with this crate. The first crate starts out at $59.95. The first crate that we mentioned had everything to do with supplements, the strength crate does offer a wider variety of products for you, not just limited to supplements. In one example crate that a friend of mine got, there was some really nice merchandise within it. You’ll have to forgive but not knowing much about Crossfit, some of the items were a mystery to me.
3rd – Barbella Box
As promised, for the women there is the Barbella Box. Loaded with monthly items that are only made for women to use, this gives all fitness-minded females awesome stuff delivered straight to them each month. What I really liked was that there were certain options made to where you could know the contents of your box, before receiving it. The biggest complaint that I see with certain subscription box companies is getting bad product or stuff that you don’t want. With the system put in place by the Barbella Box, you shouldn’t have to worry about what you’re going to get and if it will be good! Women all across the country don’t need to keep scrounging around, hoping to find something for them in stores, when you can use the Barbella Box and get cool stuff delivered right to your front door.

Understanding What Niacin Truly Does

By now, niacin is certainly leading the way for many canned items that you will see at your local gas station. What isn’t as well known is that this mysterious niacin ingredient is actually a form of a B vitamin. For anyone who assumes that vitamins aren’t strong enough to fully get you ready to start the day, think again! What you should know is that you can get too much of this energy booster, it’s always important to know when you could be heading for disaster. There are many benefits that niacin is responsible for, while a vast majority of people don’t even realize how much healthier this vitamin is making them. For anyone who might want to ensure that their brain is in good shape, niacin provides increased mental clarity. I prefer sometimes using video games, as a form of improving my hand to eye coordination. There are even games that you can play now that help with only improving your brain, many of the popular ones can be found on mobile phone application stores.

Niacin can be found in a vast array of assorted food and drink products. While niacin can help you become more energized, you won’t want to end up taking too much of it. One bad side effect that can come with using pre workouts is that you get both itchy and tingly, some look to these symptoms as signs a product is effective, while others hate those feelings. You should get some small degree of comfort from knowing that not everyone using niacin will feel tingling and itchy. The last thing that you want anyone to think of you, while in the gym, is that you are someone who is bouncing off of the walls while scratching your neck. It is likely instead of the next best lifter, you’ll appear more like Tyrone from Chappelle’s show. It is nearly impossible to fight off such urges to want to scratch at phantom itches that come up quickly, you need a good brand of niacin to use to avoid all of that.

Tyrone can lift anything!

What I would advise you to do is to look for a niacin supplement that is time-released, you don’t want a full dosage of niacin to rush into your body. In other cases, it is perfectly acceptable to need a supplement that is going to hit the body at a fast rate. You could be shocked to learn that vitamin B3 is just another name for niacin. You can put down those energy shots, as you can get actual vitamin B3 from many foods. It is always wise to take a close look at what you are eating daily right now, this way you can ensure that adding more vitamin b3 into your regimen will be safe for you. The last thing that you want to do is end up getting way more niacin that what is required for proper daily functioning.

Most of the capsules that contain niacin will be completely vegetarian safe but it is important to double check your labels, always take heed that you are not going to compromise your own personal beliefs, all in the name of being energized. Be aware that another effect of too much niacin will be headaches, sometimes ranging from slightly troublesome that can lead to full on migraines. Provided you watch what you’re doing, you are likely to gain the ability to tackle tasks with niacin.
