NEW Expert Articles!

Hi Fitness Blender family!

We published two new Expert articles today. Did you see them yet?

The first article is Part 2 of our series on the fight-or-flight response, and digs into what’s known as the amygdala hijack, or an overreaction to stress. But don’t worry, we don’t stop there; we also detail four ways to prevent overreactions to stress. Written by our amazing Doctor of Physical Therapy, who’s also a board-certified neurological clinical specialist, you know that the information is solid.

The second article was written by one of our amazing Registered Dietitians. We all know that we should probably eat more fruits and vegetables. They are so incredibly good for you and loaded with all types of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Fruits and veggies are nutrient dense, low calorie foods that can help maintain a healthy bodyweight. Even knowing all this, however, it can sometimes be a struggle to get enough of them into our diet throughout the day. We want to help, so we've built a list of some simple, practical ways to ramp up your intake of fruits and veggies.
