Just when you think you’re doing everything right when it comes to eating and exercising, you still aren’t able to lose weight. With more research dedicated to nutrition now more than ever, the information we think is helpful can sometimes be confusing. You may have tricks and tips up your sleeve in preparation for your weight loss journey, but after awhile you find them not to be working.
Oh, fiber. One substance that is good for staying, er, regular. Most Americans don’t get enough recommended fiber, which is proven to lower weight, lower your risk of heart disease, and help gut problems. Fiber doesn’t just come from whole grains but is also found in legumes, fruits, and vegetables. With the recent influx of food allergies, many are also under the assumption fiber only comes from whole grains, aka bread. This could not be further from the truth.
Not everyone has time for long, grueling gym sessions. Luckily, pumping iron at the gym isn’t the only way to get you the ripped, lean body you’ve always wanted. In fact, bodyweight exercises have become increasingly popular and are often considered more effective than weight training. Bodyweight training is when you use your own body weight as the only form of resistance in a workout. The exercises don’t use free weights or gym machines. Bodyweight training is simply more efficient.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
