Can’t find the time to get to the gym or don’t want to go for a jog in the rain? You may finally have run out of excuses.
Scientists say that intense exercise for just two and a half minutes a day could help keep the pounds off.
A study shows that concentrated effort can burn as many as 200 extra calories, provided the spurts are broken up with longer periods of easy recovery.
No pain, no gain: During the study the men did 30 seconds of high intensity exercise, followed by four minutes of rest. More »

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A survey of about 1,100 Americans finds that more than 4-in-10 respondents admit they don’t have more than $500 in readily accessible savings.
The survey is a kind of departure for CreditDonkey.com, a website that compares credit card deals. Not respondents all were poor. Some had big houses, big mortgages or 401(k)s, but still no more than five Benjamins to rub together right now.
Jill Michal, president and CEO of the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, reacts to the lack of liquid assets.
“It doesn’t shock me, but it does scare me. You know, we often say that the reason so many people fall off the edge in a tough economy is that they’re standing way too close to it, and I think this is a perfect demonstration of that.”
A survey released Monday shows that Americans aged 35 to 44 are now the most worried about financing their retirement, a stark turnaround from 2009, when people in that age group were among the least worried about money for retirement.
The survey, from Pew Social and Demographic Trends, appears to reflect the lasting impact of the long economic downturn: In general, people of all ages are more pessimistic about retirement than they were three years ago, the researchers found.

Dear Shaklee Consumer:

Here is how the product — “One World Whey” Protein Powder is marketed …
The World’s First & Only 100% Unheated Whey Protein Powder
One World Whey™ is the first, 100% UNHEATED, cold-temperature processed, 100% all-natural, and unrefined, bioactive, grass-pasture raised milk-whey protein powder.
Regardless of the claims, no other protein powder on the market is truly unheated from start to finish.
One World Whey™ is produced using the TruCool™ process, which is the world’s first all-natural,
cold-formulation process for maximum nutrient retention.
This unique process produces the highest level of naturally occurring, cell-regenerating, lean muscle-developing and immune system-enhancing, bioactive whey protein.
This is NOT just another ordinary “protein supplement” taken to meet daily nutritional needs or build muscle.
One World Whey™ is a full-spectrum, all-natural, nutritional POWER FOOD providing overall life-enhancing benefits.
Here is the Shaklee Science Response
And to clarify, the One World product is whey concentrate, which contains about 40% less protein than whey isolate used in both Physique and Cinch Whey, which is why the serving size of whey concentrate is huge compared with whey isolate to achieve similar protein levels.
Also, it is illegal to market non-pasteurized milk products in the U.S., so the “other” product must be pasteurized (heated) somewhere along the production process. For the record, our whey is sourced
from non-GMO, grass-fed cows.
Perhaps most important is the fact that the science behind our whey protein products substantiates their benefit.
Additionally, every raw ingredient, including whey is screened for more than 300 possible contaminants (the industry standard is about 70) to ensure a pure, potent product that does what we say it does.
Have a great day,
Your friends at Shaklee

Probably the most significant – yet often overlooked – aspect of training is the post workout recovery.
This phase is called the anabolic phase. This is when your level of fitness increases. And it requires more than just resting.. For optimal recovery, it is important to maximize glycogen stores in muscles and amino acids to facilitate tissue repair and avoid muscle pain. And because exercise breaks down muscle proteins for energy, consuming protein after your workout is essential to building muscle mass and strength. More »
