LATHROP, Calif., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To ring in the New Year and help make health and fitness resolutions stick through the winter and beyond, CalNaturale Svelte®, the premium line of USDA Certified organic protein shakes that provides great taste, sustained nutrition and energy through pure and simple ingredients, is offering simple ways for people to stay "Svelte" this season. Known for its positive, on-package affirmations like "Hello Beautiful™" and "Looking Good™," the company aims to help individuals looking to achieve new health goals in 2014 and look and feel their best.
"Above all, preparation is important for success to staying fit during the winter," shares celebrity fitness expert Michelle Lovitt, who works with A-List personalities, including Courteney Cox, Lauren Graham, Amber Valletta, Yvonne Strahovski, and Julianne Moore. "The key to making your New Year resolutions stick and maintaining a svelte frame is embracing a healthy diet."
Lovitt joins CalNaturale Svelte in offering the following tips to help people feel great and achieve personal health and fitness goals:
- Plan ahead to set yourself up for success. Schedule workout classes with friends in advance and prep meals at the beginning of your week, so you develop a solid routine. Pack key essentials in your gym bag the day before you exercise—including workout gear, a towel, and a tasty, post-workout drink like CalNaturale Svelte, which is packaged in a re-closable Tetra Pak container that makes it easy and convenient to grab while on-the-go. This will help keep you on track and more likely to make it to the gym.
- Your target heart rate is not just a number. Aim to get your heart pumping to at least 65-85 percent of your maximum Heart Rate (HR) for 20 minutes per day. There are a number of indoor workouts—circuit training, workout DVDs, hot yoga—for those who don't want to venture out in the cold. To save money on gym memberships, get your room toasty warm and throw on a yoga DVD at home. Incorporating a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, like ice skating, walking or running, will provide spontaneity to keep your body guessing and ultimately yield results much faster.
- Protein + Fiber + Hydration = Weight Loss. Winter workouts can torch between 300-1,000 calories, depending on the length of time and activity. Whatever your workout, it is crucial to fuel your body with protein to rebuild muscle and provide sustained energy; plenty of water to hydrate and properly metabolize food; and high-fiber carbohydrates to help replenish glycogen storage, so you not only feel great and but can also tackle subsequent workouts. People rarely consume enough protein, which is needed to lose body fat. CalNaturale Svelte is a great post-recovery option that offers 11g of protein and 5g of fiber, with only 6g of sugar.
- Snack Smart. Snack Healthy. Because everyone slips from their diet routine every now and then, be sure to stock a variety of healthy snacks so they are readily available and will help keep you full for longer. Great choices include hummus and veggies, protein-rich Tandoori chicken, hard-boiled eggs, or gluten-free tortillas with almond butter. Timing is also important—you will see the most benefit if you enjoy a snack or meal within 30-60 minutes post-workout.
Don't have time to prepare a homemade snack or meal? CalNaturale Svelte offers four delicious flavors—Chocolate, French Vanilla, Cappuccino and Spiced Chai—and is ready to enjoy in 11oz. and 15.9oz. containers for suggested prices of $2.29 and $2.99, respectively.

The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
