Here’s a List

1. Sommer Ray – @sommerray

Followers: 17.5 million

21-year-old Sommer Ray hails from Colorado in the US. She is relatively new to fitness modeling, having begun posting her pictures and videos in September 2016. She has become an Instagram superstar in a short time.

She comes from a fit family – both her parents were competitive bodybuilders. This meant that the family regularly traveled to compete in fitness shows.

Eventually, the family settled in Lone Tree, Colorado. In 2012, at age 15, Sommer decided to follow the family tradition and began lifting weights. Within a year, her body showed the benefits of her regular workouts. She started to compete in regional bikini athlete championships.

She began to enjoy success in 2015. In that year, Sommer won the Bikini Teen and Bikini Class D titles at the NPC Colorado State Championships. She also reached 16th place in the 2015 NPC USA Championships.

Sommer began documenting her fitness journey on Instagram in 2016, posting pictures and videos of her lifestyle and workouts. The bodybuilding community responded to her postings, by following her in large numbers.

She continued this into 2017, with her numbers pushing her to become the most popular fitness model on Instagram.

She also operates a YouTube channel where she shares a vlog of her fitness routines.


2. Michelle Lewin – @michelle_lewin

Followers: 12.8 million

Michelle Lewin is one of the better-known Instagram fitness models on this list. Michelle was born in 1986 in Maracay, Venezuela. She has been a Playboy cover model.

She started her modeling career on the catwalk but decided to move into bikini modeling at a friend’s suggestion.

She loved the fitness side of bikini modeling so opted to spend time working out in the gym, sculpting her body. She boosted her weight from 95 lb to 120 lb of lean muscle.

At this point, she found modeling requests started to flood in from fitness magazines and supplement companies.

She entered a variety of IFBB and NPC competitions over 2013 and 2014, winning the NPC Fort Lauderdale Cup in 2013, and coming second in the 2013 NPC Southern States competition.

Her workouts are crucial to her, as is a healthy diet. She considers the most important exercises to be sprints, lunges, and side lateral raises. She believes in high-intensity training which causes you to sweat a lot.

She shares images of her workouts on Instagram, hoping to motivate other women to lose weight and improve their fitness levels. She also shares videos of her exercises on her YouTube channel.


3. Jen Selter – @jenselter

Followers: 11.7 million

Jen Selter is a 24-year-old American, best known for her fitness modeling and overall social media presence.

She was born on Long Island, New York in 1993. She grew up believing in the importance of an active lifestyle. She began working out at age 15, and within a few years she had a well-sculpted body, with toned abs and glutes.

Jen worked at two part-time jobs while at school. She took time out one day from working in a fitness gym to post an online picture of herself wearing a bikini. The photo went viral, and Jen gained fame overnight.

Since then she has continued to work out and has built up a strong social media following, sharing images and videos of her fitness lifestyle.

She has appeared in television shows as a fitness trainer, giving lessons to the viewers.

As a result of her success, she has made numerous deals to make endorsements and perform public appearances. She has released books and fitness videos. Some of the companies she has worked with include Circus Fitness, Nike, Lululemon, and New Balance. She has signed with The Legacy Agency.


4. Ana Cheri – @anacheri

Followers: 10.9 million

31-year-old Ana Cheri is a Southern Californian. She has Native American, Latina, and Caucasian heritage.

In some ways, her career is the opposite of the majority of people on this list. While most gained fitness fame and then chose to share their journey on Instagram, Ana began as an unknown girl posting images and fitness tips.

Her posts were popular, and her support base snowballed.

As a result of her Instagram success, local California brands began to offer her modeling offers. She also gained the opportunity to endorse national brands. She appeared in posters and brochures for companies like Punch Magazine and Toyo Tires, as well as promotional ads for FOX Racing and Long Beach Grand Prix D1.

She was selected to be Playboy’s Playmate of October 2015 – one of the last fully nude Playmates.

Soon afterward, Chive named her the “New Queen of Instagram.”

However, health and fitness are just as important to Ana as modeling is. She was the Brand Ambassador and Motivational Speaker for Shredz Supplements. She featured in several fitness magazines, such as Muscle and Fitness Magazine.

More recently, Ana has started a new gym in Santa Ana, called “Be More Athletics.”


5. Anllela Sagra – @anllela_sagra

Followers: 9.6 million

Anllela Sagra is a 24-year-old Colombian fitness model and bodybuilder.

She began her working life in fashion design and modeling. She deliberately kept herself skinny at this at the time, as that was the preferred body image for models, rather than a muscular build.

One day she met a personal trainer at the gym who changed her outlook on life. She gained an interest in fitness, learned about the human body, and adopted new training styles. She particularly enjoyed weight-training.

Her change in interests (and the muscle she had built as a result) moved her away from traditional modeling. She entered a bikini competition, gaining third place.

As a result, she made a conscious career change into the world of fitness modeling.

She has built up a massive army of followers on Instagram, sharing her fitness progress with them, and giving them workouts to try themselves.

It is estimated that Anllela has earned $800,000 income in 2017 from fitness modeling, training, and her sponsored Instagram posts.

Your Sniffles May be More Than a Cold

“Am I getting sick?”  

If the symptoms linger, there’s no getting around it—you’ve come down with something. The next question is, what? Recognizing when your illness is mild, like a cold, or when it’s more serious, like the flu or even pneumonia, is crucial. While a cold might mean some extra rest and a day or two off work, the flu can require medical attention, and pneumonia is a more serious problem.  

The good news is there are distinct differences between the symptoms of a cold, the flu, and pneumonia. While these indicators may not be fool-proof, they can serve as a good starting point for a conversation with your doctor

1. Pinpoint where your symptoms are

The location of your worst symptoms can be a tell-tale sign of what ails you. Here’s a basic breakdown: 

· In your head (eyes, nose, or throat)—you likely have a cold. If your symptoms stop at a runny nose, and a sore throat, there’s a good chance you are suffering from the common cold. These symptoms are often confused with seasonal allergies, but here’s another good rule of thumb—if you have a sore throat, it’s more likely a cold than allergies. 

· In your whole body—you likely have the flu. Aches throughout your body, feeling really run down, and a fever indicate you have something more serious than a cold – you probably have the flu.  

· In your chest—you may have pneumonia. There’s a lot of overlap with symptoms of pneumonia and symptoms of cold and flu. Fever and chills can also be a sign of pneumonia, but sharp pain in your chest that occurs with taking a breath, along with issues like difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, are potential indicators of pneumonia. Pay close attention to chest pain that occurs when taking a breath and is worse on one side of your body than the other. 

2. Check the calendar

Colds are most common in the transitions into fall and spring, while flu season typically picks up a little bit later (often in October running through February and sometimes as late as May). While there is considerable overlap, far fewer people suffer from the flu outside of this season. 

Because pneumonia is a common complication stemming from the flu and can result from colds as well, it tends to share seasonality with these illnesses.  

3. Look at your tissue

It might not be the most pleasant thing, but opening that used tissue back up can provide some clues about what ails you. If you have a cold or the flu, your mucus will start off clear and could potentially change colors to white, yellowish or green as your body fights the infection.  

But large amounts of yellow mucus, especially right after you first start experiencing symptoms, could be a sign of bacterial infection. Lots of phlegm in the chest, resulting in what doctors call a “productive cough,” could also be an indicator of pneumonia. 

I think I have a cold, the flu, or pneumonia—what should I do next? 

If you think you have the common cold, over-the-counter medicines may curb your symptoms, but there’s little you can do to speed up your recovery time. Your best bet is to stay hydrated and get some rest. Taking some time off work and washing your hands frequently can reduce spread of the virus.  

If you think you might have the flu, get to the doctor or urgent care center. Unlike a cold, there are drugs to treat the flu virus, and these drugs are most effective within the first 48 hours of the infection. Getting to a doctor is especially important for people with chronic conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), people who have weakened immune systems, and women who are pregnant. Antibiotics are not effective against the common cold or the flu, and could actually make things worse. 

People who suspect they may have pneumonia, particularly those who are short of breath, should visit an urgent care or emergency department. Antibiotics are often used as treatment for pneumonia.  

When you first start experiencing symptoms, differentiating between a cold, the flu, and pneumonia isn’t always easy or straightforward. Fortunately, a health care professional can usually give you a better idea of what’s going on. Pay close attention to your symptoms and don’t wait to see a medical professional if you think it may be something beyond the sniffles.

7 Tips for Healthy Eating

These 7 practical tips cover the basics of healthy eating and can help you make healthier choices.

The key to a healthy diet is to eat the right amount of calories for how active you are so you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use.

If you eat or drink more than your body needs, you’ll put on weight because the energy you do not use is stored as fat. If you eat and drink too little, you’ll lose weight.

You should also eat a wide range of foods to make sure you’re getting a balanced diet and your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs.

It’s recommended that men have around 2,500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). Women should have around 2,000 calories a day (8,400 kilojoules).

Most adults in the UK are eating more calories than they need and should eat fewer calories.

1. Base your meals on higher fibre starchy carbohydrates

Starchy carbohydrates should make up just over a third of the food you eat. They include potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and cereals.

Choose higher fibre or wholegrain varieties, such as wholewheat pasta, brown rice or potatoes with their skins on.

They contain more fibre than white or refined starchy carbohydrates and can help you feel full for longer.

Try to include at least 1 starchy food with each main meal. Some people think starchy foods are fattening, but gram for gram the carbohydrate they contain provides fewer than half the calories of fat.

Keep an eye on the fats you add when you’re cooking or serving these types of foods because that’s what increases the calorie content – for example, oil on chips, butter on bread and creamy sauces on pasta.

2. Eat lots of fruit and veg

It’s recommended that you eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and veg every day. They can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced.

Getting your 5 A Day is easier than it sounds. Why not chop a banana over your breakfast cereal, or swap your usual mid-morning snack for a piece of fresh fruit?

A portion of fresh, canned or frozen fruit and vegetables is 80g. A portion of dried fruit (which should be kept to mealtimes) is 30g.

A 150ml glass of fruit juice, vegetable juice or smoothie also counts as 1 portion, but limit the amount you have to no more than 1 glass a day as these drinks are sugary and can damage your teeth.

3. Eat more fish, including a portion of oily fish

Fish is a good source of protein and contains many vitamins and minerals.

Aim to eat at least 2 portions of fish a week, including at least 1 portion of oily fish.

Oily fish are high in omega-3 fats, which may help prevent heart disease. 

Oily fish include:

  • salmon
  • trout
  • herring
  • sardines
  • pilchards
  • mackerel

Non-oily fish include:

  • haddock
  • plaice
  • coley
  • cod
  • tuna
  • skate
  • hake

You can choose from fresh, frozen and canned, but remember that canned and smoked fish can be high in salt.

Most people should be eating more fish, but there are recommended limits for some types of fish.

4. Cut down on saturated fat and sugar

Saturated fat

You need some fat in your diet, but it’s important to pay attention to the amount and type of fat you’re eating.

There are 2 main types of fat: saturated and unsaturated. Too much saturated fat can increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood, which increases your risk of developing heart disease.

On average, men should have no more than 30g of saturated fat a day. On average, women should have no more than 20g of saturated fat a day.

Children under the age of 11 should have less saturated fat than adults, but a low-fat diet is not suitable for children under 5.

Saturated fat is found in many foods, such as:

Try to cut down on your saturated fat intake and choose foods that contain unsaturated fats instead, such as vegetable oils and spreads, oily fish and avocados.

For a healthier choice, use a small amount of vegetable or olive oil, or reduced-fat spread instead of butter, lard or ghee.

When you’re having meat, choose lean cuts and cut off any visible fat.

All types of fat are high in energy, so they should only be eaten in small amounts.

Sugar

Regularly consuming foods and drinks high in sugar increases your risk of obesity and tooth decay.

Sugary foods and drinks are often high in energy (measured in kilojoules or calories), and if consumed too often can contribute to weight gain. They can also cause tooth decay, especially if eaten between meals.

Free sugars are any sugars added to foods or drinks, or found naturally in honey, syrups and unsweetened fruit juices and smoothies.

This is the type of sugar you should be cutting down on, rather than the sugar found in fruit and milk.

Many packaged foods and drinks contain surprisingly high amounts of free sugars.

Free sugars are found in many foods, such as:

Food labels can help. Use them to check how much sugar foods contain.

More than 22.5g of total sugars per 100g means the food is high in sugar, while 5g of total sugars or less per 100g means the food is low in sugar.

Get tips on cutting down on sugar in your diet

5. Eat less salt: no more than 6g a day for adults

Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke.

Even if you do not add salt to your food, you may still be eating too much.

About three-quarters of the salt you eat is already in the food when you buy it, such as breakfast cereals, soups, breads and sauces.

Use food labels to help you cut down. More than 1.5g of salt per 100g means the food is high in salt.

Adults and children aged 11 and over should eat no more than 6g of salt (about a teaspoonful) a day. Younger children should have even less.

6. Get active and be a healthy weight

As well as eating healthily, regular exercise may help reduce your risk of getting serious health conditions. It’s also important for your overall health and wellbeing.

Read more about the benefits of exercise and physical activity guidelines for adults.

Being overweight or obese can lead to health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease and stroke. Being underweight could also affect your health.

Most adults need to lose weight by eating fewer calories.

If you’re trying to lose weight, aim to eat less and be more active. Eating a healthy, balanced diet can help you maintain a healthy weight.

Check whether you’re a healthy weight by using the BMI healthy weight calculator.

Start the NHS weight loss plan, a 12-week weight loss guide that combines advice on healthier eating and physical activity.

If you’re underweight, see underweight adults. If you’re worried about your weight, ask your GP or a dietitian for advice.

7. Do not get thirsty

You need to drink plenty of fluids to stop you getting dehydrated. The government recommends drinking 6 to 8 glasses every day. This is in addition to the fluid you get from the food you eat. 

All non-alcoholic drinks count, but water, lower fat milk and lower sugar drinks, including tea and coffee, are healthier choices. 

Try to avoid sugary soft and fizzy drinks, as they’re high in calories. They’re also bad for your teeth. 

Even unsweetened fruit juice and smoothies are high in free sugar.

Your combined total of drinks from fruit juice, vegetable juice and smoothies should not be more than 150ml a day, which is a small glass.

Remember to drink more fluids during hot weather or while exercising.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. How does Vigorelle™ for Women work?

A. Vigorelle™ is applied to your genital area, specifically the underside of the clitoral hood. This allows the active ingredients to directly stimulate the tissue surfaces. Blood flow and dilation of the blood vessels increases around the clitoris, greatly enhancing your sensitivity. Though response time varies with each individual woman, the pleasurable warming effects develop more rapidly with the sexual stimulation of touching and rubbing in the clitoral area, and with other activities of foreplay. Natural lubrication also takes place as you respond to the beautiful feeling of Vigorelle™ Crème.

Q. Can I expect instant results from Vigorelle™?

A. Yes! You’ll get immediately increased sensations. Even better, most women find that responses improve progressively through three or more successive uses of Vigorelle™ for Women. It just gets better!

Q. I used to have a strong sex drive and much more sensitivity, but over the years this has diminished. What’s going on? And can Vigorelle™ help me?

A. Yes, in fact, you’re among the 46% or more of American women who have had just such a change. Women naturally undergo many hormonal, physical and even attitudinal changes during their lifetimes that can affect sexual response. Vigorelle™ can restore your former sexual intensity or even go beyond what you have ever had. Whether you’d like to get back the electricity and the chemistry you used to feel, or you’d like to experience the real “joy” of sex for the first time, Vigorelle™ is for you.

Q. Are there any side effects?

A. Vigorelle™ has no reported side effects. Our product is 100% all natural with no Propylene Glycol or Metha Paraban substances.

Q. If I’m much more into sex, will my partner be confused by this change in my libido?

A. On the contrary! He will be delighted. Being desired by an interested, eager partner is a man’s biggest turn-on. And when you’re feeling good, you know how incredible it feels to your partner, too. He’ll love to be part of the incredible new sensations you’re feeling.

Q. Is Vigorelle™ expensive?

A. No, it’s not too expensive. However, we do use only top-quality essential active ingredients that cost more (and are more effective!) than cheaper substitutions. We’ve made it easy to order online in a small quantity – once you try Vigorelle™ and discover the sexual benefits, you can order larger quantities at a much lower price.

The History of Resveratrol

Resveratrol was first identified in 1939 by a Japanese researcher Dr. Michio Takaoka. It was isolated in the roots of a Japanese plant known as white hellebore. Years later, in 1963, another Japanese scientist isolated resveratrol from Japanese knotweed. The roots of Japanese knotweed had been used in traditional medicine to treat cardiovascular diseases, inflammation and liver diseases. Plants containing resveratrol have been used in traditional medicine for over 2,000 years.

The presence of resveratrol in grapevines wasn’t discovered until 1976. The fact that it’s in wine wasn’t found out until as recently as 1992 by Siemann and Creasy of Cornell University. This realization led to the widespread speculation of wine consumption solving the “French Paradox”. The French Paradox describes the ability the French have to consume a diet rich in saturated fats yet still remain thin.

More recently, scientists from the Harvard Medical School have found that resveratrol can increase the lifespan of yeasts cells and species such as worms and fruit flies. The research on resveratrol and increased lifespan in mammals and humans, however, has been inconclusive so far and therefore largely debated.
