Keep that workout going! Cheers!

Safe Exercise tips for the Hot Summer!

Physical exercise poses potential dangers during the summer. Here are the dos and don’ts of working out in the heat. Follow them and take the advantage of all the fun of summer.
What you should do:
•    Drink plenty of fluids. It’s extremely important to stay hydrated. If you’re thirsty then you are already dehydrated; drink before you feel a need to. Be sure to drink throughout the day (stick to non-caffeinated beverages, preferably water). Also, drink 15 - 20 minutes before beginning your workout and every 15 minutes throughout the exercise.
•    Eat regularly. The heat can decrease your appetite, but it’s important to eat normally. Try to eat small meals 5-6 times per day. Include lots of fruits and vegetables. Apart from being nutritious, fruits also tend to help with hydration.
•    Wear light, loose fitting clothes that can breath. Cotton is always a good choice. If your outdoor activity produces a lot of perspiration, consider clothing that is designed to wick the sweat away.
•    Wear sunscreen. Even if you exercise early in the morning or late in the evening, if the sun can reach you then you can get burned. Not only is a sunburn bad on the skin and potentially dangerous but it also hinders your bodies ability to stay cool.
•    Use common sense and don’t attempt strenuous activities that your body is not accustom to. Stick to exercises that you are very familiar and comfortable with.
•    Check the weather forecast. It’s best not to participate in intense outdoor exercise sessions when the heat index registers in the dangerous zone.

What you should not do:
•    Don’t try to diet by sweating. Excessive perspiration is not the key to permanent weight loss. Any decrease in the scale would simply be a result of water loss, not fat reduction.
•    Don’t adapt the “no pain, no gain” motto. Ignoring your body’s signals could be dangerous. Heat-related illnesses come with warning signs. Be sure to learn how to recognize them and what actions to take.
•    Don’t forget to drink plenty of liquid when swimming. Just because your body is surrounded by water does not mean that you are well-hydrated. As with any land exercises, you need to regularly replenish lost fluids when in the pool.
•    Avoid physical activity during the hottest part of the day, which usually is between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
•    If you want (or need) to be working in very hot temperatures, don’t do it until you become acclimated. Try to spend only a few minutes per day in the hot conditions for the first couple of weeks and then add time gradually each day.
•    Avoid extreme changes in temperature. Don’t hop from being extremely hot and sweating excessively right into an ice cold, air-conditioned environment. Try to cool your body down slightly before exposing it to the extreme temperature variation.
Whether you have to work outside or do it for enjoyment, following the above tips will help you stay cool and safe during the summer. So, don’t spend the season cooped up, get out there and have some fun!

A recent study found that saccharin and aspartame cause greater weight gain than sugar, unrelated to caloric intake
• Research has repeatedly shown that artificial no- or low-calorie sweeteners can stimulate your appetite, increase cravings for carbohydrates, and stimulate fat storage and weight gain
• Real sugar allows your body to accurately determine that it has received enough calories, thereby activating satiety signaling. Without the calories, your appetite is activated by the sweet taste, but as your body keeps waiting for the calories to come, sensations of hunger remain
• Aspartame may also cause weight gain because phenylalanine and aspartic acid – the two amino acids that make up 90 percent of aspartame -- are known to rapidly stimulate the release of insulin and leptin; two hormones that are intricately involved with satiety and fat storage. Insulin and leptin are also the primary hormones that regulate your metabolism
• • The featured study, published in the January 2013 issue of the journal Appetite2, was done by a Brazilian research team with the Faculty of Medicine of the Federal University do Rio Grande do Sul
• You Actually Gain Weight by Using "Artificial Sweeteners
A 2010 scientific review published in the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine (YJBM)5 Discussed the neurobiology of sweet cravings and the unexpected effect of artificial sweeteners on appetite control. It cites several large scale prospective cohort studies that found positive correlations between artificial sweetener use and weight gain, which flies in the face of "conventional wisdom" to cut calories in order to lose weight.

Don't put yourself at risk of taking this chemical, the good point is cold drinks firms agree that aspartame is not recommended for children under 12, this warning is also mentioned on every diet coke or Pepsi can, though in fine prints so that majority of people don't read this. Tomorrow they can say it is bad for adults also, just like hundred of medicine and supplements which were allowed and withdrawn after a few years of marketing. Don't become a guinea pig in the hand of these companies. My advice walk for 10 mins but don't take diet cola for your health, many side effects of these are put under the carpet.
