How Often Do You Snack?

How Often Do You Snack? You just had that sinfully rich ice cream from Martine Lambert in Rue Cler for dessert and now you’re craving for those delicate artisanal pastries from Carl Marletti in Rue Censier in Paris. Paris is indeed a haven for all lovers of fine food and of course, all the fine things in life. And having a snack to go with your mid afternoon coffee is a practice beloved by Parisians and many cultures all around the world. Most of us try to get in three meals a day (some skip breakfast), so we compensate by snacking during the day. So here’s a little secret, you can actually snack more than once during the day and not ruin your diet. When you want to have a little snack and you want treat yourself, you can also visit Popelini in Rue Debelleyme for the best profiteroles.
Following a healthy lifestyle by watching what you eat is a bit of a challenge. Like playing poker, you need focus and discipline. You can now play poker without having to dress up and go to a real casino. But if you’re looking for the thrill of a live poker game, you can join the tables at Casino Croisette in Cannes. You can be a poker expert in no time when you follow these tips, and you can also be a master of your own diet when you know when the best time for snacking is. Always keep in mind that you can snack anytime you want as long as your last meal is at least four hours ago. If you exceed more than that, you risk of eating more than you should during your next meal. If you must snack on something substantial yet big on flavor you can try the famous artisanal baguettes and loaves from Pain d’Epis just around the Eiffel Tower and have some delicious savory treats like their fougasse and baguette royale.
Most importantly, you should snack after one hour of intense workout. Whether if it’s cardio, judo or pilates, your snack should be protein rich or you can also load up on carbohydrates. If you want to go the healthier route, you can have a protein shake, a tuna on whole wheat sandwich or hummus and pita that can be just as satisfying. You should also refrain from snacking between breakfast and lunch. People who snack between those meals also tend to snack during the midday so the calories add up and so does your weight. If you want to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, you can check out the organic goods and produce at L’Epicerie Generale in Rue de Verneuil, Paris.

Apps For A Healthier You

A Healthier YouIt seems anymore that technology is a permeant fixture in the lives of just about everyone. To some this may be an excuse to not live healthy or put health on a lesser priority, but it is actually a great way to stay healthy. Some of the most effective and popular apps on the market today deserve some recognition. If you own any iod device, basically an Apple product such as an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, then you already have the base for what these apps are all about! Here are the best fitness and health apps on the market.

MyFitnessPal – Now you don’t need an ios device for this because they have a website that does the same thing, but this app makes it very simple to track weight loss, manage your diet, connect with other people wanting to stay healthy and loose weight, and it has just about every feature someone looking to stay healthy on the go would want. This app is FREE!

Couch-to-5K – Talk about an effective app! This app not only sets a simple to follow plan to get you healthy and ready to run a 5K if you want to, but it has a built in music player for when you are doing the plan, three different digital trainers to choose from to guide you along, and offers the option for finding 5K’s near you and even gives you a discount for registering for a 5K. This app cost $1.99.

Sleep Cycle – Everyone knows that you can’t exercise and be healthy if you are tired and exhausted to begin with. Sleep Cycle is an app that monitors your motion while you sleep and determines when you are in your lesser sleep cycle, meaning you aren’t in as deep a sleep, and it goes by the time you set to be woken up. It gradually wakes you up by playing your choice of sound, music, or regular alarm noise. This app is important because it wakes you up on time and does it in a way that makes you feel like you have gotten a great nights sleep every time! This app is $0.99.

Pedometer – There is a paid and free version of this app, both are great! This app takes the pedometer to the next level by allowing you to listen to your music while walking, running, jogging, etc. it also records spikes in how fast you are going, as well as time, and it does all of this while setting goals for walking with you. If you plan on having your ios device with you, then this is the app to get, but it is ment for iPod Touch and iPhone, sorry but I doubt you would want to carry an iPad with you while you go jogging.

These are some of the best health and fitness apps on the market, some are free, and some cost, but none are over $3. Health is such an important thing, so I have a feeling you won’t mind putting down a dollar or two to make your tech life a little more healthy.
