You can use them standing or seated.

They are relatively light-weight – so ideal of a beginner.

They are relatively compact (except when you have lots of them!)

They allow you to train uni-laterally – meaning you can ensure your weak arm or limb is doing its fair share of the work. Dumbbells are great for improving symmetry or strength imbalances.

And they are a ubiquitous piece of gym equipment – buy them anywhere – including your local big box stores.

What sort of exercise can you do with dumbbells?

Study shows low carb diets increase calorie burn (LATEST RESEARCH 2018)

A new study published in the medical journal The BMJ shows that low carbohydrate diets cause people to burn more calories as compared to medium and high carb diets.[1]

The study showed that those who eat low carb diets may burn an extra 230 or more calories per day.

The purpose of this study was to test the Carbohydrate-Insulin Model.

Diet Concept, Healthy Lifestyle, Low Calorie Food, Low Carb Diet

This model theorizes that the increase of the hormone insulin after eating carbohydrates predisposes the body to store body fat rather than using the nutrients for energy.

Many foods high in carbohydrates such as simple sugars are known to greatly increase insulin levels. The impact these foods have on insulin can be estimated using the glycemic index and glycemic loads.

Foods with a high glycemic load will increase insulin more compared to low glycemic load foods.

Study Predicts Minimal Life Expectancy Improvements for US


Study Predicts Minimal Life Expectancy Improvements for US

A new study published in the medical journal The Lancet shows that US life expectancies will improve minimally between now and the year 2040.[1]

The average life expectancy of a citizen of the US was 78.7 years in the year 2016.

In the year 2040, the average life span is expected to be only 79.8 years, for a meager 1.1 year increase.

This improvement is especially small compared to other Western nations.

In contrast, life expectancy improvements globally will average a gain of 4.4 years in the same time frame.
