um just thought I'd give you guys an update on fitness and health I'm doing fairly good with the exercising and I just did another hundred flights of stairs and then amber and I went into some hills as well um cuz there's so many hills around there it's like the hilliest part in the entire city I guess um yeah that's pretty accurate so yeah we did that and it's like the warmest day that
we've done that on so I was like my feet were sweating it was so hot um even though it's like in the 70s but anyway um so yeah it's going good I feel like still confident in it um I've been looking at gyms cuz I really want to take like some yoga classes I've been looking at Krav Maga classes which I mean those are legit like you pretty much learn how to physically harm
people um which is not funny but um as someone who has been physically harmed in the past um I kind of like the idea of becoming a badass like that can kick some butt so yeah I'm looking at that excited about that I'm drinking my new favorite smoothie which is so freakin delicious it's frozen bananas raw cacao powder and maple butter it is so good and yes I am outside today so
I apologize for the sounds of the cars and the birds are hopefully pleasant and Amber is right next to me like panting and trying to get my attention so yeah um yeah I was really funny so today I'm doing my masters in nutrition and I was doing some research for a paper today and I read this article that compared the Mediterranean diet versus a plant-based diet and its impact on overall health so I
was reading the peer-reviewed research paper and on every account the vegan diet was more nutritious and more beneficial than the Mediterranean diet except for the potential lack of vitamin b12 so which I mean duh so I like kept reading the article because I was like yeah this is awesome and then the conclusion like after all of the research that it it stated and everything was like in conclusion we recommend that a complete balance between
a Mediterranean and a vegan diet so like doing Mediterranean / vegan so like I guess that would be a Mediterranean diet but more heavily focused on plants so you'd still eat like the salmon and such but so I guess it was recommended pescatarian maybe so it was like after all of the details of like how good the vegan diet is compared to the Mediterranean diet it was like we recommend a balance between the
two because of the lack of nutrition in the vegan diet even though it was like the vegan is more nutritious, vegan diets more nutritious in this area, vegans is better in this area in this area in this area and then it's like oh but it lacks b12 so I mean you have to balance between the two is better I was just like seriously like you could recommend taking like a b12 supplement since
the vegan diet the plant-based vegan diet clearly outweighed the Mediterranean diet but no like you can't no the supplements not good enough it recommends like a balance between the two which I just laughed at just like seriously story of our lives right anyway um I think I'm gonna go inside or we will do it outside yeah we can bring the yoga mat outside and do some bodyweight exercises we did like 30 minutes of 100
flights stairs in hills but I still want to do arm workout some planks because I can't use my wrist properly and then probably like crunches that's probably what all we're gonna do so yeah anyway I will talk to y'all tomorrow if you liked this video please consider giving us some thumbs up consider subscribing see you later

Baking a cake? Put down that sugar! There are so many other options that you can use that will make your cake just as tasty. You can substitute half of the necessary sugar with applesauce or carrot juice. This also adds the extra benefit of getting extra fruit and vegetables in your diet. If the cake doesn't taste right to your liking the first time, experiment with adding other sweet fruits you enjoy or adjust the sugar to fruit ratio to your liking.
Add whole grains to your diet. Whole grains are much better for the body than the refined carbs that are so prevalent in diets today. You can make sandwiches from whole wheat bread, a stir fry made with brown rice, or a great pasta dinner with whole wheat pasta. Whole grains have significantly more fiber than more refined or "white" grains.
Buying from a small farm near where you live has nutritional benefits. It can also have other benefits that are less calculable. If you go to the farm and talk with the farmer and see how the food is grown, you will gain a personal connection and satisfaction with your food.
Beans, beans what a wonderful food. Studies have shown that eating beans can reduce your chances of developing heart disease and could also prevent breast cancer. These great properties are thanks to beans' high protein, vitamin, and fiber content. To reduce the chance of indigestion, add them to your diet gradually.
A great nutrition tip is to start serving seafood. Seafood is loaded with quality nutrients. It is a great source of lean protein, and it's also a great source of essential fatty acids. Just head over to the grocery store and stock up on some fresh seafood today.
Nutrition experts have recommended that if you increase your carbohydrate intake it can have a positive effect on your overall diet. Since carbohydrates give your body loads of energy per serving, it is certainly a great way to compliment your current diet. It also tends to burn off much easier than fatty foods do.
Most of the time we fall prey to unhealthy or indulgent foods simply by tossing them in the grocery cart. Exercising restraint at the supermarket is immensely easier than exercising restraint when the culprit is only steps away in your refrigerator or cabinet. By making unhealthy or processed foods inaccessible, you are doing yourself (and your body) a huge favor.
One way to ensure that your cabinets are filled with only nutritious and low-fat foods is by taking the extra time to carefully consider each item on your regular shopping list. Before you go shopping for groceries, think about whether each product has a healthier or reduced-fat alternative, or if you should even purchase it in the first place.
When eating at a salad bar, you can make yourself a wonderful nutritious meal. Load up on the dark leafy greens, add some carrots and peppers along with other vegetables that look tasty. Don't pile on thick creamy dressing, or it won't be healthy for you to eat at all.
If you are at work, try keeping some single-serving packages of crackers, fruit, peanut butter, soup or tuna fish in your desk. That way if you ever need a quick lunch or an easy snack, you don't have to buy something unhealthy or get a snack from the vending machine.
Eat more tinned baked beans. Baked beans are a cheap food source and they are packed with nutritional benefits. They are full of protein, iron, fiber, calcium and vitamins. There is also some scientific evidence that the antioxidant, lycopene, is found in the accompanying tomato sauce that can prevent heart disease and prostate cancer.
Healthy eating isn't quite difficult, mind you, but it's also not as easy as it sounds.

Follow the tips you've read in this article when your goal is a balanced diet with proper nutrition.
