and Back Pain Tip
We know that obesity is a
problem for many adults, but it is a growing trend found in a lot of
in the US, Canada, European and other countries. A recent study that
at 25 countries just came out reveals that by 2010 50% of kids in the
will be obese while 40% will be obese in Europe. Regardless of the
accuracy of these numbers, this is a problem and it will eventually
a strain on the healthcare systems of these countries.
What the reason for this?
It could be due to children eating more junk food and processed foods
etc...) instead of eating a good healthy home cooked meal. Also, lack
exercise. Too many kids, instead of playing sports and exercising, are
playing video games.

Previously I mentioned that
it is a good idea to take multi-vitamin supplements on a daily basis.
are so many brands of vitamins out there and deciding which one is the
right one for you is often difficult. And do you know which one is the
most effective? Let me help you decide by examining some things you
consider, look for.
The vitamins should be of
high quality and natural, free of sugar or artificial flavors. Besides
the usual vitamins and minerals, your supplement should contain
Selenium, garlic and Chromium. Since men and women require different
of vitamins and minerals measured in IU's, mg's, mcg's on a daily basis
look for supplements created specifically for men and women. It's also
more beneficial if your vitamin comes in an AM and PM dosage. So
of combining your recommended daily amount in one tablet, it should
into and AM and PM tablet with different amounts of vitamins and
in each tablet depending on the time of day. So an AM tablet you would
take in the morning with breakfast and the PM tablet with your lunch or
It's important that you take
multi-vitamins especially if you are physically active, under stress or
an athlete. If you also do not have the opportunity to eat the daily
number of fruits and vegetables, it's a good idea to supplement your
with a multi-vitamin.
What would I recommend? I
have been taking MDR Fitness
Tabs from Medical Doctors Research for years now (since 1991
and personally I feel it's the best on the market today.

Skates - When is the best time
Your inline skates may be
old and you're thinking about replacing them. Or it may be the first
that you are considering purchasing a pair. So when's the best time
the year to buy a pair?
I find that the best time
to look for a pair of blades is in March or even April. The reasoning
that most stores are trying to get rid of their last year's stock. Yes
I know the merchandise is a year old but when you can get it at 33% to
50% off, it really doesn't matter. For the price you originally
to pay you can even get a much better pair now if you want. Also, there
aren't any big drastic changes between yearly models. Just slight
and color changes.
For my European readers,
after speaking with several people from various European countries,
you're on vacation in Canada or the US you may want to consider buying
a pair here because the prices are a lot lower.
For first time buyers, I
suggest that you read my
article on inline skates where I provide you with tips on
what to consider
and look for when making a purchase. When shopping for a pair, try on
company makes to find out which pair is most comfortable for you. Not
should they look good but more importantly, feel good when you wear
