5 BEST FOODS FOR ENERGY -- Page 60
In honor of National Nutrition Month, Fitness suggests the foods you need to fight fatigue.
28% OF YOU DON't GET ENOUGH E
• What you need – 15 milligrams daily protects against heart disease and boosts immunity.
• Why you’re missing it – Following a low-fat diet may deny you the vitamin-E rich fat found in nuts and seeds.
• Eat a cup of fortified cereal like Total.
12% OF YOU ARE IRON-DEFICIENT
• What you need – 18 milligrams a day helps oxygen travel through the body.
• Why you’re missing it – Eating less meat provides less heme iron. The redder the meat, the more iron absorbed.
• Eat steamed clams and lean proteins such as beef, chicken or pork.
MOST OF YOU CONSUME LESS THAN HALF THE RDA OF POTASSIUM
• What you need – 4,700 milligrams daily helps muscles contract and regulates fluid/mineral balance when sweating.
• Why you’re missing it – Need more fruits and veggies.
• Eat a baked potato, white beans or tomato sauce.
LESS THAN HALF OF YOU ARE GETTING ENOUGH ZINC
• What you need – 8 milligrams a day regulates your metabolism.
• Why you’re missing it – You haven’t bought wheat germ lately.
• Eat vegetarian baked beans.
MOST YOU OF YOU GET ONLY 72% OF THE MAGNESIUM YOU NEED EACH DAY
• What you need – 320 milligrams daily produces energy and helps muscle function.
• Why you’re missing it – Skimping on seafood.
• Eat halibut, All-Bran cereal, cooked spinach or black beans.
SPRING FLING -- Page 100
Cold weather blues? Fitness heats up with must-have spring makeup tips and products for your cheeks, eyes and lips.
• Choose the right formula – For oily complexions or large pores, use powder blush for a long-lasting effect. Those with dryer cheeks should apply a cream or gel to achieve a dewy look.
• Find flattering shades – Fair skin works best with a light pink/orange. Deep peach with red tones flatters medium to tan skin.
• Get an effortless glow – Layer two shades to get a natural flush. Apply one across cheekbones and dab pale shimmer on apples of cheeks.
• Try – Biotherm Blush! In #20, $17, bitotherm-usa.com; M.A.C. Blushcreme in Pearl Blossoming, $16.50, maccosmetics.com.
• Keep it simple – Choose one shade of shadow and apply sheer layer to eyelid with brush.
• Use liner to save time – Apply liner from inner to outer corner.
• Fake bigger eyes – Use darker shade of liner on upper lid and lighter shade on lower lid.
• Make it last – Use shadow as base for liner.
• Try – Wet ‘n’ Wild MegaEyes Shadow Pot in Blue Lagoon, $1.99, at drugstores; Lorac Eyeshadow/Liner Sparkle Pencil in Blue Topaz, $16, sephora.com.
• Smooth move – For the softest pout, exfoliate before applying gloss or lipstick. Try using a warm, wet washcloth or lip scrub.
• Go natural – Sheer pink or nude gloss flatters everyone and works everywhere from the gym to the office.
• Lock it on – Translucent lip liner helps gloss adhere to lips.
• Add dimension – Lipstick plus gloss creates the illusion of full lips.
• Try – Sally Hansen Maximum Plumping Lip Treatment in Clearly Happy, $3.29, at drugstores; YSL Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick SPF 15 in 16, $26.50, at department stores.
