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.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
