Albert Cyprys - The Cornerstones of a Healthy Diet

Albert Cyprys is a healthy individual who has always stressed the importance of healthy eating. Ever since he was young, he followed the requirements of the food pyramid and ate meals that were balanced in nutrition and supported his daily needs. As he got older, his habit became far more detailed, as he learned more and more about the foods that we eat every day.

With all the new information being shared on the Internet and more about diets, the influence of the food pyramid has slightly faded, but it nonetheless serves as a foundation for a balanced diet of protein, grains, dairy, fruit and vegetables. It is essential to incorporate healthy levels of most, if not all of these food groups. It is also important to compensate for nutrition values if you have a diet that limits you from some of these groups. Vegetarians, for example, usually compensate for the lack of meat in their diets by eating healthy sources of protein such as beans, avocadoes and more.

Furthermore, a focus on organic vs. non-organic foods has been a rising issue among conscious eaters. Many people are now choosing to free their diets of any GMO and unnatural products so that they can always be aware of exactly what they are consuming. With the ongoing debate between the health effects of GMO vs. organic food, many legislators are now asking states to implement laws which force food companies to label products made with GMOs to offer more clarity on the subject.

Albert Cyprys - Healthy Exercise

Albert Cyprys is a resident, professional and devotee of New York City.

He is sure to take time each day to get some exercise, which he knows is a critical part of keeping healthy. Regular exercise helps you to keep or maintain a proper weight, sleep better, lower the risk of cancer, heart disease and other health problems, and even make you smarter by helping your brain to function better.

But it’s important to be careful with any exercise program, because if it isn’t done right it can actually have a negative impact on your health. Trainers and health professionals mean it when they say you should listen to your body. Pain from exercise could mean that you are going beyond your limitations, and that you need to cut back on your level of exercise. The saying “No pain, no gain” can be misleading. Your body desperately needs exercise, but there is such a thing as too much too soon.

Health experts say that to lose ten percent of your body weight and keep it off, you need to exercise for an hour a day, five days a week. But this is only if you are overweight, and it must be done in conjunction with a proper diet. If you are overweight, the best way to get started is by walking. Walking as exercise is low-risk, and you can get fit quickly with regular walking.

Albert Cyprys stays fit by walking, skateboarding, bike riding, and maintaining a good diet.

Albert Cyprys - Bike Commuting

Albert Cyprys knows the value of working hard, particularly as a longtime professional of New York City. He is known as a hard-working team player with a buoyant and infectious personality.

He maintains an active lifestyle that emphasizes healthy eating and plenty of exercise. One of the activities he most enjoys is riding his bicycle, and like millions of other Americans he is discovering that riding his bike a lot not only has obvious health benefits, it has some financial benefits, too.

It is vastly cheaper to rely on bicycle transportation than it is to rely on driving a car. According to one study it costs nearly nine thousand dollars a year, on average, to own and use an automobile. That’s compared to about three hundred dollars to keep a bike in good condition and on the road. That’s about thirty times less than the cost of maintaining a car. The Sierra Club says that if American drivers made just one four-mile round trip a week by bike instead of by car, there would be a cumulative savings of nearly two billion dollars of gasoline.

Bike commuting is also very healthy: you’re getting exercise, even as you go from point A to point B. Bike commuters lose an average of about thirteen pounds during their first year of cycling. It’s an excellent cardiovascular workout. Best of all, by getting to work on your bike instead of a car, you bypass morning traffic jams.

Albert Cyprys enjoys the benefits of bike riding in and around his home in New York.

Albert Cyprys - All About Organic Foods

Albert Cyprys is a longtime and passionate enthusiast of good eating and exercise practices, and is currently working in New York City.

He is paying more and more attention to the foods that he eats, and is learning more about natural and organic foods. Studies show that non-organic foods have only minimal amounts of chemical residues from pesticides, and that they are not enough to pose a danger to your health. But advocates of organic foods believe that it is safer to consume organically grown foods, and that this is the only way to completely avoid foods that have residues of fertilizers and other potentially dangerous chemicals.
Food products are legally classified as organic when they come from farms and processing plants that have been certified as organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Certification as organic ensures that these facilities are up to Federal organic standards. The inspectors check to make sure that only organic methods are in use, and that the places haven’t been contaminated by non-organic compounds, synthetic fertilizers, or pesticides.

It’s easy to check whether foods are organic by reading the labels on them in the grocery store. But there are three types of labeling that are allowed, and they don’t mean the same thing. Foods may be labeled as 100% organic if they contain all organically grown ingredients, not including water and salt. The label “Organic,” without that “100%,” means that the food has at least ninety-five percent organic ingredients, again not counting water and salt. They also can’t include sulfites as a preservative. The third label is “Made with Organic Ingredients.” Foods with this label must contain at least seventy percent organic ingredients, except for added water and salt.

Albert Cyprys is careful to read the labels of the foods he buys in stores in and around New York.
