If you’re like me, the last thing you have is extra time on your hands. And unfortunately (according to surveys) for most of us that means it can be hard to make healthier choices.
Who has time to cook from scratch any more? I personally get way too many of my meals from the drive-thru. And that could mean a hit to my overall fitness.
So the Rag-Tag Geeks have gotten together and compiled our favorite, healthy(ER) meals from national drive through chains. And there is not a grilled chicken salad on the list because we are so OVER those. Download it, print it, keep it handy in your car:
Here’s some other info that will help you stay healthy on the go:
Research Links: Supplements That Help
Astaxanthin and weight:
In these studies, astaxanthin increased fat usage during exercise and accelerated the normal decrease in body fat that occurs with regular exercise. It did this by increasing the movement of fats into the mitochondria for energy production via enhanced carnitine palmitoyltransferase I (CPT I) activity (a transport protein for fat located on the cell membrane). What this means is that astaxanthin supplementation spared muscle glycogen (or sugars – a normal fuel source for exercise) and used fat stores instead.
Life Oil™ Sea Buckthorn and Weight
- Contains the rare Omega-7 fatty acid. This healthy fat has been shown in studies to act as a hormone, signaling muscle cells to react better to insulin. It seems also to inhibit the ability of fat cells to store fat.
- Mice fed the same high fat diet had significantly lower body weights if also given sea buckthorn in studies
- Women who took sea buckthorn for 30 days saw a “statistically significant” reduction in waist circumference with no other changes to diet and exercise
