They look fantastic, with ingredients like honey, garlic, and ginger, mixed with medjool dates, cilantro and mint! I can't wait to give these a whirl!

Ten Tips to Jump-Start Your Workout Routine 

Deciding to be more active is an incredible first step to cashing in all of the amazing benefits of exercise, from better moods to improved sleep to all-around higher confidence.

But once you've resolved to start working out, that's where things can get a little overwhelming. With all of the chatter about the magic workout to do or the perfect amount of time to spend in the gym, it's hard to know where to start. And if you're not clear about what you're doing (or why you're doing it), it can be easy to throw in the towel when things don't go as planned.

1. Identify your "why," "what," and "how" so you can be clear about your goals (you can even write these down).
2. Try starting with three 30-minute workouts a week to pace yourself.
3. Prioritize consistency over intensity.
4. Find other active people to support your efforts.
5. Do workouts you actually like—you're more likely to stick with it.
6. Invest in a great pair of shoes.
7. To avoid burnout and injury, start slow and take breaks during your workouts.
8. Accept that you'll have setbacks, and that's OK.
9. Think of working out as an act of self-care.
10. Don't skip your warm-up and cool down.

The Sweet Danger of Sugar

Sugar has a bittersweet reputation when it comes to health. Sugar occurs naturally in all foods that contain carbohydrates, such as fruits and vegetables, grains, and dairy. Consuming whole foods that contain natural sugar is okay. Plant foods also have high amounts of fiber, essential minerals, and antioxidants, and dairy foods contain protein and calcium.

Since your body digests these foods slowly, the sugar in them offers a steady supply of energy to your cells. A high intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains also has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers.

Consuming too much sugar

However, problems occur when you consume too much added sugar — that is, sugar that food manufacturers add to products to increase flavor or extend shelf life.
 


In the American diet, the top sources are soft drinks, fruit drinks, flavored yogurts, cereals, cookies, cakes, candy, and most processed foods. But added sugar is also present in items that you may not think of as sweetened, like soups, bread, cured meats, and ketchup.

The result: we consume way too much added sugar. Adult men take in an average of 24 teaspoons of added sugar per day, according to the National Cancer Institute. That's equal to 384 calories.

"Excess sugar's impact on obesity and diabetes is well documented, but one area that may surprise many men is how their taste for sugar can have a serious impact on their heart health," says Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
