Spring cleaning is a great way to freshen up our homes and liven up our spirit partway into the year. It is an opportunity for us to get rid of old closet items and clean up around our living space to brighten up our rooms and make way for the new things we want in life.

Besides tidying up around the house, one area that we often leave behind is the inside of our fridge. Cleaning and reorganizing our fridge is a must because it will help keep our food safe and make it last longer.

Here’s what you can do once you start tackling “clean fridge” on your spring cleaning checklist.

Your metabolism can be your best or worst employee, depending on how you treat it. When you take good care of your body, your metabolism is willing to work hard for you, ensuring that you will be getting a high return on investment – good health and longevity. On the other hand, if you deprive your body of proper nourishment, your metabolism becomes vindictive by slowing down its productivity and refusing to show up from time to time, causing low energy levels, stress, and gradual weight gain. Poor work output by your metabolism over time can lead to troublesome complications like diabetes, obesity and heart disease. So what can you do to treat your metabolism, one of your most important workers, better?

If you are in pursuit of becoming bikini ready for spring break or summer, you’ll want to begin looking into a plan now to help you get into great shape. What you might wonder when starting a new plan tied to increasing your exercise routine is whether it is necessary to take in more protein and how it will make your bikini plan more effective. We laid out answers to the most frequently asked questions on protein and working out.

What are the benefits of protein?

Protein is found in nearly every other body part or tissue. It helps make up muscle, bone, skin, hair, as well as enzymes for various crucial chemical reactions in the body. In addition, it is also a part of hemoglobin which carries oxygen in the blood. A lack of protein can put your body at risk for hair and muscle mass loss, decreased immunity, a weakened heart, growth failure in children and other problems.

How much protein do I need?

The New Year is sneaking up and soon the need to make a New Year’s Resolution will be upon us. For many, it is exciting to reinvent ourselves, but by the end of the first month, our motivation slopes downward. Sadly, after years of unsuccessful attempts at making a change, we have come to believe that resolutions simply do not work. To help you adhere to what you resolve to do this new year, Almased suggests the following:

Make one big resolution and break it into smaller monthly targets. Whether your goals are health-, finance-, or skill-related, establishing monthly goals aimed towards the accomplishment of a big goal will help you feel less overwhelmed, keeping you on track. For weight loss, Almased recommends a healthy goal of losing at least four to eight pounds per month to achieve a total weight loss of 20-40 pounds in six months.

During the holiday season, it is easy to find yourself indulging in high-calorie, carb-rich foods like pies, gingerbread, and eggnog. While our taste buds are satisfied in the short-term, continual overeating of heavy foods can not only be detrimental to our health, but also slow down the metabolism, making us feel sluggish. To help you start this year off free from holiday gluttony guilt, restore your body’s energy level by following Almased’s 14-Day Figure Plan. Almased can help you reset your metabolism, maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and help with the bloat that affects your weight and the way you feel. Here’s how:

1. Reset the metabolism

Reducing calories, fat and carbs to the level that is needed by your body allows your body’s metabolism to run more efficiently. At the same time, taking in a good level of protein will help maintain and build muscle that is biologically active, so that your body can burn calories even at rest. Almased helps reset your metabolism by reducing calories, fat, and carbs from your diet while providing a healthy amount of protein. For the first three days of the 14-Day Figure Plan, drink Almased (8 Tbsp with 10 – 12 oz of water, skim or almond milk) three times daily. Then continue the program as described in the brochure.
