Ripped: How fitness has become smarter, better, faster, stronger

Ripped: How fitness has become smarter, better, faster, stronger | Healthy Living Essentials | Scoop.it

e've come a long way since Jack LaLanne opened the first health clubs and Olivia Newton-John begged for us to "get physical." While fitness trends have come and gone over the years -- take the ab belt, the NordicTrack and Power Plate, to name a few -- there's one trend that isn't going anywhere soon: connected fitness. It's now a $14 billion a year industry, and it continues to grow -- health and fitness app usage is up 62% this year, and Flurry Insights data shows that health and fitness tracking apps are growing 87% faster than any other app category.

How To Increase Your Water Absorption - Cerra Water Library « Cerra Water Library | Healthy Living Essentials | Scoop.it

For a long time now, we’ve been hearing that drinking 8 glasses of water a day is optimum. Current research and scientific measuring has shown this to be highly inaccurate for a long of people. Holistic health experts are now recommending you drink half your body weight in ounces if you have a minimal  activity level. In other words, if you are 200 pounds, you sit at a desk all day and you go for a walk every day, you need 100 ounces of water every day. But not just any water will do.

Hugo Monteiro's insight:

"You see, it doesn’t matter how much water you drink, it is how much water that is absorbed into the cells that counts"

Ask Altucher : Ep 194 – How to Throw Out Everything

"Claudia and I threw out everything we owned this weekend. We threw out 98% of everything.

There are about 30 garbage bags and another 20 boxes filled with stuff. "Stuff."

We had just spent six weeks traveling around and except for the stuff we were traveling with we realized we didn't need anything else.

No papers, books, extra sheets, clothes, extra plates, tables, lights, etc. I didn't even miss these things once.

25 years' worth of memories in some cases."
