This Is How Much Protein You Need to Eat Every Day

Protein is the stuff of life. From your hair to your fingernails to your muscles, protein is the glue that holds each cell in your body together, and what makes up many major hormones and antibodies. That's why getting enough protein in your daily diet is important. New evidence suggests exactly how much you need depends on a host of factors: your diet, age, health, activity level and—for women—whether you're eating for two. Here's everything you need to know to make sure you're eating the right amount of protein.

Going meatless has many advantages, be it for your health or for the environment. But can it help with dropping pounds? Yes, vegetarians may lose more weight than meat-eaters, according to a recent review of studies published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.

Should You Do an Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse?

Detoxes are definitely "in." And apple cider vinegar cleanses have become the new must-do detox. A mixture of apple cider vinegar with a variety of spices and juices (e.g., cinnamon, honey, ginger, cayenne pepper, lemon juice), this cleanse has been sweeping the internet as a beneficial cure-all to help you lose weight, lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, control your blood sugar, boost your immune system, relieve constipation and even regulate body and skin pH.

Foods to Lose Belly Fat

There is no true magic bullet when it comes to belly fat. But research shows filling your plate with foods that fight abdominal fat—as part of an overall healthy diet—can help.

For most adults that's 2 cups of fruit and 2.5 to 3 cups of vegetables (it's recommended that men get a little more veg). Only 14 percent of adults are getting the recommended amount of vegetables and only 18 percent get enough fruit. That's really low, especially when you think about how good they are for you. Produce is loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
