Por que menos é mais com o HIIT

Se Você Se Exercita de Modo Intenso, Sua Rotina de Treino Pode ser Amplamente Reduzida

Por Dr. Mercola

Você ainda está com dificuldade de encaixar o exercício no seu horário? Se a resposta for sim, esta é uma boa notícia: Você pode se exercitar menos se você aumentar o ritmo. O tempo necessário está inversamente associado à intensidade.

Quanto maior a intensidade, menor o tempo que você precisa se exercitar.

Anos de pesquisa geraram um consenso científico, já que inúmeros estudos revelam que exercitar-se em pequenas explosões com períodos de descanso no meio produz benefícios genéticos e metabólicos muito maiores do que o exercício contínuo por uma sessão inteira.

Why a vegetarian diet can help you lose more weight than just cutting calories

Eating more greens, grains, legumes, fruits, and nuts can rev your metabolism, melt fat around your muscles, and help you drop more pounds.

We’ll bet that, like a lot of guys, you count yourself among the Fred Flintstones of the world: a carnivorous caveman who’d rather gnaw on a T-bone than spear lettuce leaves. Vegetarianism is foreign to you—unappealing and nonsensical for your muscle-building aspirations.

But guess what? You can build just as much lean muscle on plants. And you won’t starve either: Vegetarian staples like beans and peas are more filling than meat.

5 High-Fat, High-Carb Foods For Weight Loss; Health Benefits Of Avocados, Potatoes, And More

The answer to weight loss isn’t always low-calorie, low-fat foods. In fact, many healthy sources of food are high in fat or carbs. In the video below, host and dietitian Joe Leech explains the benefits of five weight loss-friendly foods you may have thought were fattening.


Avocados are a great source of healthy fat, especially monounsaturated oleic acid, which is also found in olive oil. Other important nutrients avocados have are fiber and potassium. The green fruit, that’s easy to spread, is also a healthier alternative to margarine and butter, Leech explains.

Boiled Potatoes

Many current diet trends eliminate carbs completely, but Leech describes them as “almost the perfect food.” He says this because they contain a little bit of almost every single nutrient we need. In addition to boiled potatoes, he suggests turnips and other root vegetables.


Most fruits are high in fiber and have a low energy density, which makes them a good substitution for calorie-dense, pre-packaged snacks.

Whole Eggs

Eggs have often been shamed for being high in cholesterol and fat, but they provide an excellent source of high-quality protein with few calories.


Nuts are high in fat, like avocados, and provide a great, plant-based source of protein. They’re a heart healthy food and most types contain omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and Vitamin E.

10 Workout Shortcuts to Maximize Your Calorie Burn

If you could cut your workout time significantly while burning more calories, gaining strength and even improving your performance, would you do it?

Most people would do so in a heartbeat, which is why, if you’re still spending an hour or more exercising at a steady pace, there’s some major news you should know.

By increasing the intensity of your workout and interspersing it with short periods of recovery, you can increase your excess post oxygen consumption (EPOC), sometimes known as the afterburn effect. This means that you’ll continue burning calories after you’re done working out – a win-win situation no matter how you look at it! Want to know more? Leer Más

An Inspiring Story of Weight Loss and Its Aftermath


The adornments in the office of Eric L. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, are hardly typical: a full-size refrigerator stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables; a work station where he prepares and blends these plant-based ingredients for his meals and snacks; and a convection oven and hot plate where he cooks them.

In an adjacent anteroom, there’s a stationary bike, 15-pound weights, a multipurpose fitness tower and a TRX suspension trainer hanging on the door. His laptop is mounted on a music stand so he can use it while working out on a mini-stepper. Leer Más
