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)

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.

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!

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)
