Tips From Fitness Magazines.

Posted on: June 7, 2011

Hi!

Recently, I’ve been clearing my house of unnecessaries, including those older issues of health and fitness magazines that have been tucked behind the jar of pickles in the fridge. I’ve been giving them a quick read before donation and/or recycling, and I’ve found a few great tidbits to pass along!

lycopene sunscreen?
Apparently, consuming tomatoes and tomato products slightly increases our skin’s UV protection. We still need to lather up with regular sunscreen, but there’s another reason to chow down on heart-healthy lycopene-containing goods! Bring on the bruschetta!

post-it nuts?
This one’s pretty cool. Have you struggled to remember how many of a certain variety of nuts counts as one ounce? (Either that, or carry around a portable food scale all day long!) Fret no more! I read in Shape magazine that if you spread a single layer of most nut varieties on a 3 inch x 3 inch post-it, you have your one-oz serving. Cool, eh?

joint juice
Another benefit to garlic and onions: it appears that those of us who consume more of these veggies have lower rates of osteoarthritis! Who cares about bad breath–bring ’em on! (And maybe pop a a mint while you’re at it.)

So, you, as readers, benefited while my house benefited from a cleaning! Have you seen any useful tips from magazines recently?

Thanks, Brooke, those were hepful. And yes, I do use tips from my magazines. I take a blank notebook, cover the front with pictures and words that reflect what I’m passionate about, and then cut out articles from my favorite magazines and paste them inside my blank book. Lately I’ve created a few, “Ten Tip Tuesday” posts on my blog, “The Fit Optimist”, using information from that book. I hope you get a chance to check it out sometime.

Keep on writing!
