Mom’s Check This Out

Fruit Juices Most of the world is fooled into thinking that downing fruit juices is a great way to be healthy and lose weight. But the fact is that this just isn’t true. Grape juice, orange juice, pineapple juices, apple juice‚ they all almost instantly spike your blood sugar levels and cause cravings for more sugar. Even worse, processed juices are stuffed with High Fructose Corn Syrup and Crystalline Fructose which cause even more powerful cravings than regular old sugar. Eat fruit instead. The fiber in whole fruit slows down the release of insulin and holds cravings at bay. Bread White bread is stripped of all its natural fiber and nutrition. It acts just like sugar in your body and gets quickly stored as fat. I see obese children eating white bread sandwiches and slurping on fruit juice all the time‚ and it breaks my heart. Children will eat healthy ...(Read More)

Should You Eat Protein Before Or After Your Workout

All the exercise in the world won’t help you build muscle or get you lean if it is not supported with proper nutrition, which should always include high-quality protein. Should you have protein before or after your work out, in reality the best time is both! The purpose of having protein before you exercise is to prevent muscle from breaking down and to promote muscle protein synthesis. A fancy word for preserving the muscle you already have, and helping to promote the growth of new muscle tissue. In addition to consuming some quality protein before you exercise, you should also consume some after as your muscles are highly receptive to incoming nutrients after a training session. The purpose of protein after training is to simply continue the benefits of pre-training protein, it preserves the muscle you already have and helps create new muscle tissue. Hope your having a great day!

Healthy Safe Fat Loss

Black Tea It is true that all teas (black, green, oolong and white) come from the same plant, camellia sinensis. What gives each tea it’s particular qualities is in the processing of this particular plant to create different varieties of tea. Black tea is probably the most commonly consumed and most popular of all the teas. It also contains the highest amount of caffeine of most teas (approximately 40 mg), but not nearly as much as 1  8 oz cup of coffee (100 mg). Low amounts of caffeine in black tea promotes blood flow, in the brain without over stimulating the heart, helping to sharpen mental focus and concentration. Black teas greatest benefit is its high amount of quercetin, an antioxidant found to combat inflammation and support healthy immune function. This is probably the best health benefit of drinking black tea‚ its ability to keep the immune system healthy and ...(Read More)

Apple Cider Vinegar in the form of a tasty drink. Apple Cider Vinegar Drink * Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (with mother) * 1 to 2 teaspoons of Raw Honey * 8 ounces of filtered water Drink this 1-3 times a day, preferably before or with each meal. I suggest you start out with 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and honey to see if your stomach can tolerate the mixture at first. If you see you are having no stomach problems then increase to 2 teaspoons of each. Alternatively, if you would like a drink with a bit less sugar, use stevia or xylitol to sweeten (although, raw honey has a long list of powerful healing properties all in itself, making the drink one of the healthiest drinks you can have each day). Green Smoothie w/ vinegar For those who really don’t enjoy the ...(Read More)

Lack of Sleep Limits Your Fat Loss

When you cut back on sleep, research is starting to show that it can affect your weight loss. Studies are also showing that you lose less fat stores then if you got a good nights sleep. Studies show when weight loss participants got a full nights sleep they lost the same amount of weight as when they didn’t get a full nights sleep. The big difference though is that when they got a good nights sleep more than half the weight they lost was fat. When their sleep was cut back then only 25% of their weight loss came from fat. Participants also felt hungrier when lacking sleep. What’s believed to have happened here was that when their sleep was reduced their body produced greater levels of gherkin, which is a hormone that triggers hunger and also slows down your metabolism or the rate at which you burn calories.

Eating To Lose Fat

  1. Eating slowly is better for digestion and absorption , and will not leave you feeling bloated and with unpleasant gas problems.It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register that you’re full. If you fast then you may eat beyond the point of fullness and this leads to unhealthy weight gain. 2. Broiled or Baked? Order your food broiled, steamed or baked. Broiling and baking remove fat as the cooking takes place, opposed to frying and deep-frying add extra fat calories as well as adding trans fats. 3.Tell Them To Take It Away when they bringthe basket of bread. Have your waiter take it away and don’t even bother letting it sit there to tempt you. If it’s not starring at you then you won’t eat it. Your body will thank you! 4. Avoid Dinner After 6pm!! Schedule early reservations so you’re not ordering a double chocolate ...(Read More)

Truth or Myth

  Let’s talk about the supposed best source of calcium: a.k.a: milk! Drinking milk is an excellent source of calcium. Or IS IT? Then I looked up at the milk refrigerator and it said Healthy Milk. I thought to myself, wow, I can’t believe the advertising, and people actually believe this stuff. It may contain calcium, but an excellent source? I don’t think so! I want to debunk that myth for you right now. Americans consume a lot of milk annually along with Scandinavian countries, and many European countries. In fact, we’re in the top 12 consumers of milk among all the countries in the world, yet the United States along with Europe account for more than half of all bone fractures in the world. And the incidences of osteoporosis in these countries are increasing every year. How does this happen if we are consuming cartons and cartons of milk, which ...(Read More)
