Stress Constipation and How to Prevent It

You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “Poop or get off the toilet.”

While this is fine advice for a serial procrastinator, it’s the last thing you want to hear if you’re constipated.

In fact, constipation is no joking matter as it can lead to serious health issues, including skin issues, fecal impaction, hemorrhoids, or even more severe colon issues.

Common knowledge usually points us to one of three solutions if you’re blocked: increase your magnesium, water, or fiber intake.

These are all strong solutions and, for some, simply increasing a combination of these three may resolve the issue fairly quickly.

But there are still many people who may suffer despite trying these common solutions, so what then?

There are a few other things that can cause constipation, including various pathogens (parasites, bacteria, fungus). It could be that you’re eating a diet that isn’t suited to your biological needs.

Or perhaps … Read the rest

Zina’s Life, Before

“Before doing the Beachbody Challenge I felt tired, unmotivated, angry, heavy, hopeless, and lacked confidence. It was a new year, I had just had my second baby, and a move to a new town was in the near future.

I hated the skin I was in and as much as I wanted to lose the weight, I wasn’t confident enough to step inside a gym.

I also didn’t have my nutrition under control. I was yo-yo dieting; eating healthy one day and back to eating junk the next. I needed help. Not having the proper … Read the rest

Darlene’s Life, Before

“I tried my best to be body-positive, but the truth of the matter was I [was] miserable in the skin I was in. I felt like everything in my life was at an all-time low. I was depressed. My career was plummeting fast. I was in an abusive relationship, which didn’t help with my self-esteem.

As far as my health was concerned, it seemed like no matter how long or hard I exercised I couldn’t keep my weight in a healthy range.

My doctor told me I … Read the rest

How to Meditate Every Day

Believe it or not, I can teach you how to meditate in less than a minute.

You don’t need a complicated method. You don’t need an elaborate breathing technique. You don’t need an unpronounceable mantra.

Instead, just look up at the sky or out the window and take that moment to center yourself. Take a few deep breaths, and step outside the drama of the day. Try this for 30 seconds.

Did you try it? Congratulations. You just meditated!

You’ve just gained a valuable tool to help you deal with the stress of daily life.

Meditation is a very natural thing. It’s something people used to do all the time without even knowing it.

Any time you’re just hanging out by yourself, sitting on the subway, waiting for a doctor’s appointment, or standing in line at the supermarket is an opportunity to meditate.

Of course, if your mind is racing … Read the rest

How to Make Your Best Shake

There’s something about a healthy, well-made shake that’s so… satisfying.

But the “perfect shake” means different things to different people: For some, the perfect shake is just water, ice, and a few basic ingredients.

For others, it may be an elaborate combination of fruits, veggies, nut butters, and add-ins like chia seeds, spices, and toasted coconut.

Whatever your shake jam is, it’s important to make sure you’re putting in healthy ingredients in the right amounts that help fuel your body.

Here on the Beachbody Blog, we’ve got hundreds of delicious Shakeology recipes, but we get it, sometimes you just want to improvise.

So, to help you get your creative blending juices going, we created this Shakeology recipe template to help you make your best shake.

“I have been overweight my entire adult life.

I gained 60 pounds with my pregnancy and then 60 more pounds after that. With each child, I gained more and more weight.

I hated my body. I hated mirrors. I never wore nice clothes or jewelry because I didn’t want anyone to see me. I never had the energy to do anything with my kids. Even taking them to the park was a challenge. I’d take them … Read the rest
