The Benefits of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
Instead of spending an hour on the treadmill during your next cardio session, try some HIIT! Many scientific studies have looked at the benefits of interval training compared to steady-state exercise. Here are some of the highlights:
HIIT burns more calories in less time than traditional cardio, meaning more fat loss, faster.
The 'afterburn' effect of HIIT is much greater than steady state cardio, so your metabolism gets a bigger, longer boost post-workout.
From beginners to elite athletes, everyone can reap the benefits of HIIT. Just work at a pace that is right for you!
And remember, no matter what type of training you prefer the best cardio workout you can do is one you'll do again!
It can be hard these days to sort through all the advertising, gimmicks, and general scams in today’s food industry. Every company wants your money and they are willing to say ANYTHING to get it! Here are a few tips for finding what foods are worth your time and money
1. If you see constant advertising for it on television, in magazines, and on the internet, you should probably avoid it. These companies have big money to spend convincing people to eat their products, so don’t fall for it.
2. The old rule about shopping the perimeter of the grocery store is an excellent piece of advice! Here you’ll find fruits and vegetables, fresh bread, dairy, eggs, and meat. Just be aware that there is junk everywhere these days so always stick with items that have the fewest ingredients.
3. Ignore health claims made on the front of the box. The more important information is on the nutrition facts panel and ingredient list. Any claims made on the front are just advertising.
4. “All Natural” does not mean healthy. “Organic” does not mean healthy. “Low Fat” does not mean healthy. “Reduced Sodium” does not mean healthy. Read the labels on everything to find out what is really in your food.

What Does It Mean To Hire a Dietitian vs a Nutritionist?
The term 'Registered Dietitian' is a protected title. This means only people who have completed specific educational requirements and a dietetic internship are able to practice using these titles. 'Nutritionist' is not a protected title, so anyone with little or no nutrition education can use it. Make sure you are getting your nutrition advice from a real professional with the proper credentials.
