Ways to Maintain Cholesterol Levels

diet

Cholesterol levels have been on the rise because of fast food and other packaged foods that deliver little to no incentive for maintaining cholesterol levels. But as such, cholesterol is vital in the functioning of the body as it keeps the cell walls flexible.

Although medication is one way you can lower cholesterol levels, the best way is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In this article, we’ll go through a few through which you can reduce cholesterol levels in your body.

Healthy diet

By changing your diet, you can lower cholesterol while also improving heart health. Foods that are rich in saturated fats, red meat for example, and Trans fat, such as partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, raise cholesterol and hence, lowering the intake of foods such as this would result in the reduction of LDL cholesterol, or the bad cholesterol. Accordingly, it is essential to eat foods that are rich in soluble fibre as it helps in the reduction of absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream.

Monounsaturated Fats

Many recommend a low-fat diet in order to lose weight, and although this reduced the levels of LDL cholesterol, it also decreased the highly needed HDL or the good cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. That is why it is essential to instead be on a monounsaturated diet which protects the loss of HDL cholesterol and reduces LDL. Oxidation of lipoproteins, one of the key components that cause the clogging of arteries, is reduced when foods that are rich in monounsaturated fats are taken. Avocados, olives, almonds, olive oil and cashews are some examples of monounsaturated fat-rich sources.

Workout Regularly

Having a regular workout not only helps you stay in shape, but exercising also increases HDL while also decreasing LDL levels. A study involving 20 overweight women and a regime that combined both aerobic and resistance exercise found a significant reduction in LDL levels after just 12 weeks.

aerobics

The exercises need not be intense as walking also increases HDL. But it helps significantly if you there are intense workout sessions as these increase the benefits. Resistance exercises are known to decrease the LDL levels even if they aren’t done severely as increasing each set increases the benefit.

No Smoking

Smoking changes the way the body handles cholesterol as the tar found in cigarettes can prevent the transportation of cholesterol from the walls of the vessels to the blood by the immune cells.

 
 

Due to this inability, the immune cells cause the arteries to be clogged faster. It must also be noted that the HDL levels are low while LDL levels are high among smokers.

The Top Fitness Trade Shows and Events in the U.S.

Since the health and fitness industries have been making waves in recent years, there has been an increased number of members active in Health Clubs, throughout the U.S, as well as the entire world. We’re not talking an increase in a few thousand, but rather millions of people, who are making the shift into fitness.

Contrary to previous years, fitness is something that is labelled as really cool and has also increased the revenue value of the industry by over 24 billion dollars, which was between the year of 2014 and 2015 alone.

I don’t know about you, but those numbers are quite crazy. Something such as fitness trade shows, conferences and expos thus play an incredibly large role in the industry and is also one of the biggest reasons why the industry makes so much money.

The number of trade shows, conferences and events have increased immensely over the past few years as everyone wants a piece of the pie. There are, however, a few that stand out and are scheduled to be hosted annually in their city or country of choice, but mostly remain in the same city too.

The 3 Best Fitness-Trending Trade Shows, Conferences and Events in the U.S.

  • The Fit Expo – As one of the most popular fitness expos in the U.S, The Fit Expo gets held annually and is a unique experience, which is suitable for anyone wanting to experience what’s new and trending in fitness.

It is considered the biggest consumer fitness expo in both Chicago, as well as the West Coast Region in the U.S. There are also many plans for locations to be set in place in the future.

Annually, there are over 100,000 health and fitness professionals and enthusiasts who take part in the event. Visitors are also in for a treat each year, with a new special guest appearance by anyone from a celebrity to the top fitness experts.

  • IDEA World Fitness Convention

This amazing fitness conference is the world’s biggest fitness convention and results in a massive gathering of over 375 sessions, 300 exhibitors, as well as 230 presenters.

Top Fitness Apps of 2018

apps

As the years pass by, innovation in technology has brought to fitness as well. There are countless apps that let you track your progress and some even help you plan your routine. Let us go through some of the best apps for both the android

Couch to 5K

If you’re new to running, this app is made in anticipation of just that situation. From walking to running, this app gets you going no matter what and as you keep going, the tasks given to you increase in difficulty. All you have to do is run for 30 minutes thrice a week and as the name of the app suggests, you’ll be running a 5K in just nine weeks. Currently sitting at 4.6 out of 5 in play store and a 4 in the app store, you can get the Couch to 5K app for just $2.99.

Fitness Buddy

An app that acts just like a personal trainer, the Fitness Buddy app gives you access to more than 75 workout routines. Each of these routines is grouped into categories that are based on personal goals, muscle groups and routines. With unique video demonstrations and instructions for each routine, Fitness Buddy also tells you what you need to eat and personal training plans that are made by real trainers. The app is currently sitting at 4.5 out of 5 in the app store and 4 out of 5 in the app store. Although the app is free, there are in-app purchases that act as extra features that you can buy.

Fitbit

The Fitbit app is made for the Fitbit band in order to keep track of the number of steps as well as the amount of calories burned. On top of all that, the app also measures the distance you’ve travelled as well as the pace with which you’ve travelled.

Although made for the band, anyone that owns a smartphone can use the app to keep track of basic activities but when paired with the wearable device, the app will collect data that ranges from the amount of sleep that you get every night to your heartbeat. Other features that the Fitbit app offers are a diet and workout manager. The Fitbit app has a rating of 4.2 out of 5 in the app store whereas the play store users rate it a 4 out of 5 as well. Fitbit can be installed onto your phone free of charge.

What is the Point of Fitness Expos and Conferences Globally?

Fitness events, especially those that ware held for marketing purposes, have increased by the dozens over the past few decades. It is especially true ever since fitness became an actual trend back in 2010, and we’re not just talking your typical health and fitness conference, we’re talking live events that are hosted globally and have also been scheduled as permanent annual events in certain countries.

It is especially true for fitness-crazed countries such as Australia and the U.S, who have been on a rollercoaster ever since the interest spike in fitness took off eight amazing years ago. That was also around the time Instagram took off as one of the hottest social media applications, giving Facebook a run for its money.

If you go onto Instagram, fast forward to eight years later, you’ll find a fitness guru, a personal trainer or nutritionist ready to teach you something new and take you through their breakfast, lunch and dinner on a regular basis. You don’t even have to be a health or fitness professional to become an expert on Instagram yourself, you can just post a few inspirational words regarding your fitness journey, share a photo of your new pair of workout tights and post the Acai bowl you had for breakfast on Instagram and you’re good to go.

While some people might think that Instagram is one of the biggest reasons the fitness concept took off with such a bang in 2010, it wouldn’t have been anywhere without the people behind all the hard work, especially when it comes to what it means to be fit and healthy. Those types of people deserve the recognition, and you can find them at expos, all over the globe, the good ones anyway.

The Point of Fitness Expos and Trade Shows

The point of hosting an expo or fitness trade show is to bring a community of health and fitness lovers together, who all share the same interest in getting healthier and stronger, as well as share their weight loss journeys or support each other.

Health and fitness brands often also host these types of exhibitions and shows events to gain exposure, especially when it comes to promoting activewear, a new food label, fitness gear and apparel, as well as new trends in sporting activities.

These events are often hosted by some fitness superstar, which generally means, just someone who has a few hundred thousand to millions of followers on Instagram and most probably also has an e-book or some learning curve for their audience. These fitness individuals are also often referred to as influencers and work towards promoting a healthier lifestyle for all the world to experience, ultimately bettering other people’s lives. Their goal is to help people, help themselves and start some positive movement.
