Matt Damon Got Ripped for Bourne 5 Movie

To help transform Matt Damon's body back to Bourne readiness and morph John Krasinski's frame from office desk jockey to Navy SEAL for 13 Hours, trainer Jason Walsh needed only one tool: a VersaClimber. The machine requires you to simultaneously move your feet and arms, and mimics the feeling of climbing on an incline. (Punishingly, the faster you move, the harder it gets.)



"The VersaClimber reinforces primitive movements, namely the natural crawl motion, which is superior for strengthening the body effectively and safely," Walsh says. Don't be fooled by the machine's mild-looking build. Using it requires every major muscle group to fire, and gets your heart rate racing immediately. "It demands the whole body to work as one unit, recruiting more muscle, oxygen, and ultimately more calories," he says. What's more, because the low-impact workout delivers less stress to joints and connective tissue, you can work out more often, and recover faster, than doing other high-intensity routines.


VersaClimbers are the lynchpin of workouts at Rise Nation, the boutique studio Walsh opened in Los Angeles this past year, which Damon, Krasinski, and other celebrities frequent. But you can find the machine in many national gyms like Equinox and Crunch, too. It doesn't take long to get the kind of intense cardio-and-strength session that earned Damon his abs and Krasinski his new arms. This 10-minute session from Walsh should do it. Try it three or four times a week:

Top Experiences for Couples to Keep the Romantic Fire Blazing

 Feeling a bit ho-hum about your relationship, or want to make sure you don’t? The answer may be easier and more interesting than you think. Simple, shared experiences for couples may be all that you need.


Pinterest

Studies have shown that facing challenges together and engaging in exciting activities bonds couples more firmly and increases attraction more than dinner and a movie.

Why?

Pleasant Versus Exciting Experiences for Couples

Once your partner becomes a habit, you run the risk of taking one another for granted. This isn’t rocket science. But, science has a term for it – “habituation.” Habituation is a romance killer, specifically because habituation and interest are at odds.

If you can associate your partner with times you felt accomplished, excited, or even challenged, it will help deepen your bond and influence how you identify them as a facet of your life. If all the mystery is gone, you can still feel surprise – and we’re often surprised when trying new or exciting activities.

Once your partner becomes a habit, you run the risk of taking one another for granted.

It’s all about the difference between pleasant and exciting experiences for couples. When 53 married couples were assigned to do pleasant, exciting, or not-special (the control group) activities for an hour and a half every week for 10 weeks, those who did exciting activities reported more satisfaction.

Now who couldn’t use more relationship satisfaction?

Here Are 3 Adventurous Experiences for Couples to Liven Up Your Love Life:

Make no mistake, frequency does matter. Date night has its place. But while dinner and a movie may keep the romantic fires lit, why settle for embers when you can have a blaze?

Try these three exciting experiences for couples to spice things up!

1. Get Touchy Feely

Nothing keeps the spark alive like touch. Physical touch is such a huge factor in intimacy, because physical touch creates intimacy! Think about a few activities that involve touch, like AcroYoga or dance lessons. Find a local AcroYoga class in your area, or check out a Latin or Kizomba dance class together.

2. Empty the Bucket List

Creating memories together and doing something that either of you has always wanted to do builds bonds. Is there a particular country or continent on your list? Whether it’s a road trip, finally getting that tattoo you’ve always wanted, or jet setting to Rio de Janeiro, maximize the experience with your significant other.

3. The Other Side of Fear

On the other side of fear lies excitement. Although not for the faint of heart, skydiving, bungee jumping, or the more serene hang gliding promises thrill, excitement and lifelong memories.

For skydiving and hang gliding, you’ll have to go tandem with an instructor the first few times, so make sure you and your love are scheduled at the same time to go together or one right after the other. Seeing one another’s expression back on the ground is priceless!

Can’t quite stomach the thought of the sky-based activities above? A trip to your local amusement park and a ride on the rollercoasters is an accessible way to get your blood pumping together. Still nauseous at the thought? Try go-karts . . . they aren’t just for kids.

Fatty Liver Diet – Plan And Foods To Eat And Avoid

The early symptoms of an unhealthy liver are bad breath, bloating, indigestion, sudden weight loss, and premature graying of hair. However, many fatty liver patients do not show signs and symptoms until it's too late. That's why you should be extra cautious and improve your diet and lifestyle. Here are some foods and a diet plan that can protect you from fatty liver. But first, let's understand how the liver and body functions are affected if you have fatty liver.


Fatty liver is the result of the accumulation of excess fat in the liver. The first line of treatment to help treat fatty liver is a healthy diet. Fatty liver is one of the major occupational lifestyle diseases and can becaused by alcohol abuse, an unhealthy lifestyle, and/or genetics. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, death rates for liver disease and cirrhosis have increased by about 31% for those aged 45 to 64 years old between 2000 and 2015.




How Does Fatty Liver Affect The Liver?

Fatty liver can disrupt the main function of the liver, which is to remove toxins from your body. The liver is the second largest organ, and it filters the blood and metabolizes drugs and other chemicals. However, excess alcohol consumption and medical conditions like diabetes type 2, insulin resistance, genetic disease, and a sedentary lifestyle can prevent the body from metabolizing the glucose properly. In turn, excess glucose can be stored in the liver as fat.

There are two types of fatty liver:

Alcoholic fatty liver-- Due to overconsumption of alcohol

Non-alcoholic fatty liver-- Due to genes, a metabolic disorder, and/or a sedentary lifestyle. This is commonly known as NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease). NASH or Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis is a form of NAFLD that is caused when overaccumulation of fat causes inflammation, leading to liver damage if not treated on time.

If you do not make an immediate change to your diet and start being active, your liver may develop cirrhosis, cancer, or liver disease. Here is a list of foods to eat and avoid to improve the condition of your liver. Take a look.

11 Foods To Consume To Treat Fatty Liver

1. Fish

Fatty fish are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce inflammation and induce weight loss by restoring the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 to normal levels. Scientists have proved that consuming fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the fat in the liver. It is a great way to treat NAFLD and NASH.



Consume wild-caught salmon, mackerel, silver carp, and hilsa to lose weight and excess fat in the liver and, in turn, help reduce stress in the body.

2. Olive Oil

Olive oil improves the blood lipid profile, boosts glucose metabolism, and increases glucose sensitivity. Olive oil is a great source of monounsaturated fatty acids that help patients with NAFLD improve their condition.

Consume 4-5 tablespoons of olive oil per day. Use it to make "slim" salad dressings, roast, bake, and make stir-fried veggies.

3. Avocado

This buttery and mild-flavored fruit is loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). 


MUFAs help reduce inflammation and inflammation-induced weight gain, decrease bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and triglycerides in the blood, and increase good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol). Hence, avocados are great for weight loss. And when you lose weight overall, the fat on the liver also reduces.

4. Walnut

Scientific research has proven that walnuts are great sources of antioxidants and healthy fats. They help decrease hepatic triglycerides, reduce inflammation, and increase insulin sensitivity. In another study by French scientists, walnuts helped reduce hepatic fat accumulation.

Consume walnuts on a regular basis by adding them to your breakfast smoothies or oatmeal bowl.

5. Tofu

Tofu is a good source of protein and antioxidants. Scientists evaluated its hepatoprotective properties and found that regular consumption of tofu decreased bad cholesterol levels, reduced weight, and increased total protein and albumin concentrations.



Consume tofu for lunch or dinner by grilling it or tossing a few cubes in your salad bowl.

6. Vegetables And Fruits

Consuming veggies and fruits on a daily basis can help reduce your fat percentage, which will ultimately lead to the reduction of fat in the liver. Consume a variety of colorful veggies and fruits each day so that you can reap the health benefits from the different kinds of nutrients found in each food.

Also, make sure you consume four servings of five different veggies and three servings of three different fruits every day. In a short period of time, you can lose some weight, and your liver can also start recovering .

7. Green Tea

Green tea is one of the best beverages for weight loss. This refreshing tea is a storehouse of antioxidants that help reduce hepatic inflammation, induce reduction of fat in the liver, and decrease the levels of liver enzymes present in patients with NAFLD.



Consume 3-4 cups of green tea per day to help get rid of the excess fat.

8. Garlic

Garlic is a superfood. The compound allicin in garlic is a potent antioxidant and can protect you from various diseases, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver. It works by reducing inflammation, flushing out toxins, and reducing fat mass in the body.

It is best to consume one clove of raw garlic in the morning. Or, if you prefer, you can add garlic to soups, salad dressings, and stir-fries.

9. Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are loaded with MUFAs or monounsaturated fatty acids. Also, they are great sources of dietary fiber and copper. Research shows that consuming sunflower seeds could help reduce oxidative stress and treat NAFLD.



Add sunflower seeds to smoothies or breakfast bowls or consume a handful of them before or after working out.

10. Oats

Oatmeal is a popular weight loss food as it is a great source of dietary fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Consuming oatmeal regularly can help you lose the excess fat, in turn, helping to revert NAFLD.

Prepare oatmeal with milk and add honey or a pinch of salt (yes, it tastes good) instead of sugar. Add some berries and nuts to keep you full for a long duration and energize you. You can also prepare vegetable oats with carrot, broccoli, and mushrooms and have it for lunch or dinner.

11. Broccoli

Broccoli is an antioxidant-rich cruciferous vegetable that is "loved" by all (wink). Jokes aside, consuming broccoli on a regular basis can help reduce body fat and flush out toxins. Scientists found that broccoli helped lower hepatic triglycerides and hepatic macrophages, thereby protecting liver health.



Consume a small cup of blanched or grilled broccoli for lunch or dinner to help prevent further deterioration of fatty liver.

These are the top 11 foods that will protect your liver. You must also be aware of the foods you should avoid to prevent fatty liver. Here's the list of foods you should not consume for optimal liver health.

7 Foods To Avoid To Treat Fatty Liver



1. Alcohol

Overconsumption of alcohol leads to hepatic steatosis, which can lead to cirrhosis and cancer. The first thing that you must do is limit your alcohol consumption. If you have been diagnosed with fatty liver, you must abandon your alcohol habits immediately and stay alcohol-free for at least three weeks.

2. Sugar

Sugar can be very addictive and, in turn, can contribute to weight gain and insulin resistance. Also, when you don't change your diet, it can lead to NAFLD. Therefore, it is best to limit or avoid the consumption of refined sugar. Instead, use a natural sweetener like honey since it contains trace amounts of antioxidants and raises blood sugar levels less quickly than sugar.

3. White Bread

White bread is a high glycemic index food, and is digested quickly. That's why it is so easy to overconsume white bread without even realizing it. The end result? Fat accumulation in various parts of the body. If not kept in check, it can lead to fatty liver. Consume whole grain, homemade bread instead of store-bought, white bread.

4. Red Meat

Consuming excessive amounts of red meat can put your cardiovascular health at risk because it is high in saturated fat and can lead to an increase in triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.

5. Trans Fats

Trans fats are present in many fried foods, biscuits, and crackers (click here for the complete list). Overconsumption of these foods can lead to obesity, diabetes, and NAFLD.

6. Soda

Soda is loaded with sugar. The more sugar you consume, the more you are at the risk of being obese and developing fatty liver. Therefore, stop consuming soda (including diet soda) and drink healthier, lower sugar beverages like coconut water, water, green tea, lemon-infused water, or black coffee instead.

7. Salt

Excess salt can cause water retention in the body that can hinder glucose metabolism, leading to obesity, diabetes, and fatty liver. Therefore, use minimum amounts of salt in your food to protect your liver.

It's easy to see that eating healthy is the ONLY way to prevent fatty liver and protect your liver from further deterioration. If you are struggling to follow a healthy eating schedule, here's a diet chart for you.
