14 Foods to Kick Out of the Kitchen Forever
 
Make the following food swaps to stay on track with your fitness goals—even when your schedule’s insane.
 
Hitting the grocery store every week isn’t easy when you’re swamped with work, the gym, friends, family—the list goes on. That’s why it’s even more important to have healthy staples in your pantry when you’re looking to maintain your fitness—and avoid the drive-thru. But some shelf-stable foods, like white rice, canned soup, and pasta sauce, can sabotage the health goals you’ve been gunning for. On the other hand, picking nutrient-dense, power-packed foods will help you train longer, build muscle, and give you more energy all around, says Jim White, R.D., spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and owner of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios.

The 7% Body Fat Diet
 
Strip the fat from your frame with this eight-week plan.
 
We estimate that the average weightlifting guy walks around at about 15% body fat. This is well within healthy levels, but it’s not going to turn many heads on the beach. (Reminder: Beach abs are carved in winter.) To look that good, you need to get below 10%—the point at which most guys can see some definition—and preferably as low as 7%. That seems to be the magic number associated with adjectives like shredded, diced, and genetically gifted (haters always gon’ hate). The plan is simple: six-pack, 7%, eight weeks. let’s go. If you’re already working out and in decent shape, you’re probably halfway to 7% body fat—hovering at around 15%. We’re going to take you through the other half of the journey. (If your body fat is currently higher, that’s Ok. We can’t promise you’ll get to 7% in eight weeks, but you may cut your number in half.)   More >

Create a Life You Love

There are times when you know just what to do, and life seems to rise up and support you and your ideas. And then there are times when it is all a little murky, and you might feel a bit lost. Thankfully, you have your yoga practice to come to—a time to tap into a deep connection with yourself and remember who you really are and what is most important to you. Nothing could be better.

When you bring the spacious awareness you experience in your yoga practice to your whole life, you'll experience the kind of presence that will make you stop in your tracks, engage your senses, and find joy in daily life. But for most of us, accomplishing that is easier said than done. Often it requires a conscious effort to examine the status quo, push in new directions, and find fresh approaches to evoking that same sense of grounding, connection, and happiness we find on the mat.

Here, then, are 10 possibilities to help you get there. Put these ideas into practice one at a time, or try several at once. You might want to welcome one of them into your life as an offering to the New Year. Whatever approach you choose, here's to feeling more alive, more present, and more aware of what makes you happy.

Nutty Nutrition
Roasted, toasted, soaked, or served raw, a handful of nuts is a superfood snack that's hard to beat. Nuts of all varieties are chock-full of satisfyingly rich flavors, healthful fats, protein, and fiber. And in a recent review of 23 studies, scientists confirmed that eating nuts on a regular basis—anywhere from 1.5 to 3.5 ounces five times a week—could lower total cholesterol by between 2 and 16 percent. You'd be nuts to pass that up!

This week go nuts with Red Lettuce and Roasted Beet Salad with Walnuts and Blue Cheese and Anise-Almond Biscotti.

9 Ways to Max Out Your Treadmill Workout
 
Bored to death of running in place? Break free of the machine monotony and ramp up your indoor routine.
 
Sure, you might feel slower running on a treadmill during winter than you would training outside. But believe it or not, you can get more from the belt—beyond jogging on an incline. It’s time to dust off your sneakers and revamp your indoor running, so you can hit the spring season at full speed. Follow these tips to work on form, simulate a race, and monitor your rhythm—all without having to brave the elements. First up: Try an anything goes workout. Increase your incline for the first interval, then activate the quads, calves, and hamstrings with a decline descent. Close with a challenging incline run that picks up the pace. Don’t feel like overthinking? Use the treadmill’s constant momentum as motivation to run a low-level hill program or an interval workout. More >

The Magic Number for Muscle-Building
 
Add up your total reps to 25, and your gains will add up fast, too.
 
If you’ve been lifting for a while, you’ve probably learned that there’s no perfect number of sets and reps that works for everyone. Or is there? Some of the most effective muscle- and strength-building programs share a common trait— the total number of reps for the main exercises usually add up to around 25. Shoot for that number over the next four weeks and your gains will add up fast, too. Here’s how it works: On your main lifts, keep the reps low and do enough sets to reach roughly 25 total reps. Usually, this provides the right combination of volume and intensity without any wasted effort. We’ll show you how to vary the sets and reps each week.   More >

Blacklisted Bites
 
Top athletes wouldn't dare devour these diet disasters—and neither should you.
 
Top performing athletes know that nutrition is king when it comes to gaining an edge over their competitors. However, no matter what your goal is—carving out your six-pack, increasing your stamina—the gateway to success lies on your plate. An athlete’s diet is more than just calories in and calories out—it’s fuel. The right foods increase your energy, promote muscle growth, and aid in muscle repair. The wrong ones set you back. When it comes to chowing down, there are certain eats a serious athlete just won’t touch. Take sugary cereal, for example. No athlete gets to the top of his game, and stays there, by starting his day off with a big bowl of oat cereal and marshmallows. Too much sugar also causes a spike in insulin, priming your body to store more fat.   More >
