Hot Fitness Tip


When a high level of insulin is released after a meal, it promotes fat gain because insulin blocks the release of stored fat, promotes fat storage and causes blood glucose to plummet. When fats are shuttled away and blood sugar drops, hunger signals are generated and a person tends to overeat, consuming more food and eating more frequently. People who experience a moderate release of insulin following a meal tend to avoid the metabolic mismatch and generally experience greater success in managing their weight. Controlling the glycemic load of a meal is one way to control the insulin release after a meal.

Words of Inspiration


Get Back Up

Bless the dark areas in your life and thank God for the strength that you now have within you to face the next hardship. Without darkness we cannot recognize the light. Walk in the light and bless the darkness. This way the new light will touch everything past and everything yet to come…

Burdens can weigh you down if you let them engulf you - so Don't.

Always remember you are still here.

 Get Back Up.
