Most of them are common foods that you hear of every day and probably already use and most of them you can use as medicine by fighting off disease before it happens. Thus the advice from Dr. Daniel Amen, in his book Use Your Brain To Change Your Age, let food be your medicine.

Dr. Richard Schulze, one of the nation’s  most renown naturopaths and herbologists uses the last 5 ingredients in this list for an immune booster that I’ve been taking for about 5 years. Since I’ve been taking it, I’ve had the flu only once and never have caught a cold, sinus infection or any other illness. I know of someone who was released home from the hospital, to die, with terminal cancer because all of the drugs that failed to cure him.  He took this immune booster for 8 months and completely cleansed his body of cancer. The nice thing about it is that you use nothing but food for this immune booster. It’s clear evidence that you can use food for your medicine. All of these foods above can be incorporated into any of your daily meals and they will provide you with many benefits. They each have their own contribution to the body and all help to promote a healthy body. The weight loss is just an added benefit.

Some ideas of recipes that are healthy and promote weight loss can be found below. These recipes all are a spin on famous foods that we like to eat. The change is in the ingredients used and when you supplement for the new ingredient the meal becomes healthier for you.

  • You should try chicken meatballs one night instead of ground beef meatballs. The chicken is better for you than the beef and it provides a light dinner. The chicken meatballs can be baked instead of fried which will eliminate the fatty oils.
  • Roasted veggie and bean tacos are a good substitute for traditional tacos. You can still enjoy a taco night with the family so don’t worry. In this recipe, you can use veggies and black beans to replace the meat. The veggies are crisp and make the tacos delicious.
  • Shrimp stew is a good alternative to traditional soups. The soup is light and provides a much lighter base than other soups. It is made from marinating shrimp and using jasmine rice to help thicken the soup. You can add veggies like spinach to enhance the flavor profile.
  • Quinoa is a great and healthy substitute for rice. It is a very versatile ingredient and can be used in many different dishes. It provides a nutty flavor and is simply scrumptious. It contains a lot of fiber and protein to help promote weight loss for you. You can serve it alone, as a side dish, or in salads. The options for quinoa are endless.
  • Lentil chili is a great spin on regular chili that uses ground beef. This chili is made using beans, onions, tomatoes, and seasonings. The beans are fatty in omega 3s which benefit your body. It can be eaten alone or served over rice.
  • Chicken scaloppini is a great idea. Served with a sauce made from olive oil and lemons, garlic, and seasoning. This lighter meal will turn out to be delicious.
  • Salmon cakes are a twist on crab cakes and are healthier for you. They can be made using a canned salmon and mayonnaise. Both ingredients are also high in omega 3s which help your body and promote good health. To spice the meal up, even more, you can roll the cakes in sesame seeds.

Weight Loss Tip – Attitude Is As Important To Weight Loss As What You Eat

Attitude Is As Important To Weight Loss As What You Eat

If you could choose your weight loss from between having to lose weight for the rest of your life and losing the weight just once and be done with it, what would you choose? You can yo-yo diet for the rest of your life or you can change your diet and lose your excess weight permanently.

In my previous article, I looked at the importance of mindset for weight loss. We discussed how your current subconscious programming really determines your weight and if you want to lose weight permanently then you need to start working at the source of the problem.

So how exactly can you achieve this weight loss?

  1. Train your brain whenever you see comfort food that you’ve been aching to eat, stop and think. Think about what that hunger feeds. It feeds a cycle of addiction that you can live without. Remember before you put any of that kind of junk food in your mouth, your feeding your addiction by feeding your hunger cycle. All that does is to feed a cycle of disease that you can live without much easier than the short satisfaction you’ll get from masturbating your taste buds.
  2. Affirm your wishes with your words. Talk as though you don’t like your comfort foods because you know what discomfort they bring if you continue to eat them. Talk to yourself like your weight is disappearing. Say it! Believe it! Do that and just like magic, it happens before you know it.
  3. Change Your Diet to eat no more bread, pasta, cereal, and all products containing those substances. Know that it’s poisonous food that doesn’t belong in your mouth. Cut your starchy carbs to as little as possible and watch your pounds melt off at a rate of a pound a day.

If you’re serious about losing weight and getting as healthy as you possibly can, there is a fast track to get there. It’s not an easy one but it is very efficient. This fastest way to get there also gets you a jump on your future health by resetting your hormones to engage your body in its own healing process. It is magic how it works, but scholars have been doing it for thousands of years. This fastest way to your new health is to go on a three day, water only fast.

Go on a 4-day water only fast and you’ll see so many improvements to your health that you’ll be so amazed, you won’t be able to believe it yourself. It’s hardest to accomplish, the first day, due to the addiction factor. Your hunger is proof of your carbohydrate addiction. That may be hard to swallow but it’s true and deep down, you know it. You know it by your addiction to sugar. It’s that glucose that sugar and all carbs break down to that is so addictive.

This is why fasting is so important. It breaks that addiction quicker than anything because it removes the addicting chemical, glucose. I’ll bet you never thought of glucose as a chemical. Actually, it’s a chemical compound made of carbon hydrogen and oxygen. It’s what all carbs and sugar break down to and I can tell you honestly, right now, that your body does not need any of this disease creating food.

Whatever glucose your body needs, it can generate itself, by gluconeogenesis. Gluconeogenesis is a process your body goes through when it needs glucose by converting glycogen stores back into glucose when it needs it. This glucose is a much cleaner glucose than what you get when you eat it. The glucose you get when you eat it is a dirty glucose as it came from sugar or carbs. Do you know what happens when you put sugar in the gas tank of your car? It destroys the engine. When then, do you want to put it in your body? Because it tastes sweet.

So what do you eat if you’re not eating carbs? A lot less. That’s because your hunger cycle will be gone once you give up the carbs. And that’s the biggest blessing you’ll ever give yourself. Without a hunger cycle. not even the sky’s your limit.

If you’re serious about weight loss, these are must reads;

Many Options For Weight Loss – Which Ones Are Good And Which Aren’t

15958767-beautiful-young-woman-with-fruits-and-vegetables-in-shopping-basket-isolated-on-whiteThere are many weight loss products, plans, and programs available to choose from, today. From diet pills and weight loss programs to quick fixes of gastric bypass, stomach stapling and lap band surgery. With the pills and programs, keeping the weight off once you lose it, is more difficult to do than losing it in the first place and more often than not, it comes back faster than it took to get it off. And surgery comes with its own downfalls like the problem of complications from the surgery, the costs of the surgery itself, the dangers of the medication after the surgery and associated risks that come with all surgical procedures like scar tissue and downtime from work while your recovery takes place. But not to worry, today you’re going to learn the best weight loss method that actually works. It will help you in reducing weight quickly and above all, the costs associated with it far outweigh the costs of obesity or just being overweight.

This method has been divided into three phases, and in order to get most out of this approach, you should follow all the three phases simultaneously. Before you start your transformation you should adopt a new mindset to not only lose the weight but to keep it off once you lose it. You should also check with your doctor to get his/her input on your weight journey. Once you’ve done that you start by changing your attitude that you can do it. No negativity allowed. Very little can be achieved with a negative attitude, while almost anything can be achieved with a positive attitude.

Each of the following phases is so important that you should try to do them simultaneously if at all possible. If it’s not then at least start with the change in your diet because you are what you eat and nothing influences your body more than what you feed it.

Phase-1  Change Your Diet To Change Your Body

This really isn’t that difficult, it’s not how much you eat, but what you eat. You can actually eat more food and still lose weight if you’re eating the right foods. Actually, I recommend eating more often. Instead of eating 3 times a day, add 1 or 2 more meals to your day to keep your blood sugars better regulated. This will keep your body from craving the foods that are unhealthy for you to eat. Foods that have nothing but empty calories in them, like white bread, bleached white flours, white sugar, (remember that brown sugar is nothing more than white sugar with molasses added) and the processed foods with all the sugar and salt added to make them more flavorful. And this isn’t even cover the fast food that we’ve all become addicted to with it trans-fats and too much salt. All of these are prime cancer-causing foods that should be avoided at all costs because they not only contribute to cancer, but too many other diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s to list just a few.

Eat more foods that are healthier for your body to assimilate. You can’t keep eating whatever you’ve been eating if what you’ve been eating is white bread, pastries, donuts and anything made with bleached white flour and white sugar. You need to replace it with healthier foods. Foods that promote weight loss, like fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber, antioxidants, carotenoids, and phytochemicals. All of these components promote weight loss and a healthier body.

What are the foods that you need to add to your diet?  To start with, fruits, vegetables, soups, juices (no sugar added), legumes, beans, green salads, whole grains, and water. Fill up on salad and don’t drink your calories with sugar added juices and soda pop. Most soda contains high fructose corn syrup added as a sweetener, which fools the body into thinking it’s receiving nutrition when it’s actually not, so a few minutes after it goes into the body, the body’s hunger isn’t satisfied and wants more. This happens with all white sugars, flours, and bleached food products. The mind sees the empty sugars as nutrition but as the body doesn’t get any nutrients, it wants more. This is why you’re still hungry while your stomach is full, causing you to eat more and more. The empty sugars actually act on the brain like any addictive substance like heroin or cocaine. The empty sugars feed the addiction but fail to feed the body and thus the hunger stays, even though you’ve just eaten, so you eat more and more never satisfying your body’s need for nutrition. Is it any wonder it’s so easy to pack on pounds?

This is why it’s so important to stick to a low-calorie and low-carbohydrate diet. If you keep on taking in empty carbohydrates, you cannot lose weight. Empty carbohydrates = white bread, white flour, white sugar, white rice, anything that’s had the nutrients bleached out of it. About 80 – 100 years ago, as some sources say, bakers started removing the bran and germ from the wheat kernel, mostly because of the palatability of the bleached white flour which made it more suitable for cakes, pies and other pastries and the fact that it gave the flour a longer shelf life. This was simply because the germ and bran, the nutritional part of the wheat and the part that provided the fiber made the flour made it go rancid much faster. This removal left the wheat with nothing but a starch, which basically provides sugars for the body. In this case, the calories those sugars provide are empty calories and when the body is fed empty calories, receptors in the brain’s pleasure center are triggered just like they’re if they were triggered by heroin and cocaine. The only problem with sugar is that it turns to fat if it’s not burned as energy. Worse yet when the calories from the carbohydrates (sugars) have no nutrition in them, the body craves more and more of it and thus you eat more and more but still fail to get what the body needs, the nutrients from what was removed from it when the flour for the bread was bleached and processed.

Drink water, 8 to 10 glasses every day in winter and 15 to 20 glasses of water per day in the summer. Drink one glass of water before the meal. When water is used by your body, it assimilates fat stored in the body (depending on your activity level), as fat is water soluble in the body. This means the more water your body processes, the more fat you can lose with the water waste, making it that much more important to drink water. Water is crucial to purging your system of the toxins you gobble up while eating grain foods.

Phase -2   Start an exercise program – Boost Your Activity Level.

After you lose the weight, unless you want to start the yo-yo diet routine, start exercising. This step is so important it’s difficult for me to show you just how important it is. I’ve seen too many people regain all and more of weight they had just lost because they couldn’t follow through with this phase. What happens is that they fall back into their familiar routine and start eating the addictive foods again and before they know it they’re heavier than they were before they went on their last diet.

Make time to exercise, especially if you have a sedentary job where you sit most of the day. The easiest way to achieve this is to start walking. Include walks in your daily routine. You can walk anywhere. Don’t always look for the closest parking spot in the parking lot, chose a spot a little further away and walk. It is strongly recommended to walk at least a mile every day and gradually add miles.

Step-3   Mindset – Change Your Attitude, Change Your Body

Positive self-talk and daily affirmations are a strong ally in your battle of the bulge. This will not only keep you on track but more importantly, it trains your brain to resist those times when you’re tempted to yield to your old addictions of sugar, bread, and pasta. Instead, you find something much healthier to eat.

Metabolism – It’s Effect On Weight Loss And Foods That Boost Metabolism

Metabolism – It’s Effect On Weight Loss

Does metabolism effect weight loss or does weight loss effect metabolism?  Metabolism, as defined by Wikipedia, is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms. In short, it’s the breakdown of food and turning it into energy. Enzymes are crucial for metabolism because they assist organisms in driving desirable reactions that require energy and can’t occur by themselves. The word metabolism can also refer to all chemical reactions that occur in living organisms, including digestion and the transport of substances into and between different cells. Because metabolism is digestion on a cellular level and how your body’s chemical reaction between the food you eat and your body’s cells are influenced by your body style,  it might be safe to assume that weight loss has more of an effect on metabolism than metabolism has with weight loss.

But then, it’s also safe to assume, metabolism has that much effect on weight loss, when you realize that the energy required to digest foods that increase metabolism is more than the energy required to digest the more simple foods like most fatty foods (meats and poultry) and grain foods (bread and pasta). This increased energy expenditure can be easily explained by the added nutrients obtained from these more complex carbohydrates and proteins rich foods. To understand this one needs to know the mechanics of metabolism. To understand this better, one needs to know the mechanics of metabolism.

Metabolism is usually divided into two categories.

  1. Catabolism which breaks down organic matter to harvest energy in cellular respiration (breakdown of foods for energy). According to Wikipedia; “Catabolism breaks down large molecules (such as polysaccharideslipidsnucleic acids and proteins) into smaller units (such as monosaccharidesfatty acidsnucleotides, and amino acids, respectively). The pathways for catabolism and anabolism use different enzymes but are regulated by the same molecules, so they take place in different locations and organelles in cells to avoid interfering with one another.[2]
  2. Anabolism which uses energy to construct components of cells such as proteins and nucleic acids (breakdown of foods for growth and cellular repair). Wikipedia says about anabolism; “Anabolic processes tend toward “building up” organs and tissues.” 

Up for debate is the effect of exercise on the metabolic rate. Probably because it’s usually measured as a Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR which is done while the body is at rest (while awake). Aerobic fitness level, a product of cardiovascular exercise was previously thought to have an effect on BMR, but it was shown in the 1990’s not to correlate with it when fat-free body mass was adjusted for. There are studies that anaerobic exercise, however, does increase resting energy consumption (BMR), through increasing muscle mass, as anaerobic exercise includes resistance training (weight lifting, etcetera) intended for muscle building. This requires more digestion of proteins which require more energy to digest, thereby increasing metabolism.

From this, it may be safe to assume that foods high in protein will raise metabolism simply because they’re harder to digest and they’re turned into anabolic hormones under the right conditions to increase muscular cells instead of producing more fat cells which are my much easier to metabolize. Fat is metabolized directly into fat whereas metabolizing proteins require enzymes and amino acids to synthesize proteins, requiring a lot more energy to metabolize. Carbohydrates which require more energy than fats to metabolize but not as much as protein provide the catabolic metabolism which provides energy for the body to move. These cells are stored as fat, as instructed by the insulin that turns them into fat. They are not used until your stomach empties out and your body produces the fat burning hormone, glucagon.  This is the key to burning the fat you’ve stored and are trying to get rid of. 

Although it’s difficult to find any concrete evidence that a higher metabolism causes weight loss on its own, what a higher metabolism can do is give you more energy by better utilizing the foods you eat, making exercise much easier so you can burn more fat. A healthy source of protein like eggs, chicken, or nuts and upping your intake of high-fiber foods like vegetables is one of the best ways to increase your metabolism because these foods are richer in the micro-nutrients that our cells need.

Foods That Boost Metabolism

Foods or drinks that are known to help our metabolism

Water – Drink plenty of water every day. You would need to drink more than 2 quarts or liters of water a day. Dehydration slows down metabolism because it fools the body into thinking that it’s going into a conservation mode. Water is key to just about everything. Fat is water soluble in your body and water actually helps to remove from the fat through exercise.

Green Tea –  has a variety of enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids, sterols, polyphenols, carotenoids, tocopherols, vitamins, caffeine and related compounds, phytochemicals and dietary minerals, all important for metabolism.

Lean Turkey – eating lean meats that are protein-rich help us to build up lean muscles which essentially helps us to lose body fat. Studies have shown that lean muscles promote a faster metabolic rate.

Hot peppers – hot peppers have shown to speed up metabolism rates and cool cravings for food. Capsaicin which is a chemical found in hot chili peppers expands blood vessels and accelerates excretion of sweat which can help to burn fat.

Eating low-calorie high fiber snacks is the key to weight loss. Weight loss can be achieved through the right kind of diet along with exercise. The key is to stay active and eat plenty of healthy high fiber food.

Foods that help your metabolism can easily be found in local supermarkets.  Drink plenty of water and make time to relax to have some green tea. Drink green tea as well as coffee and make sure your diet is balanced with more high fiber foods.

But don’t just take my word for it. You should check with the experts…..

Magnesium for Weight Loss

Magnesium for Weight Loss

Magnesium supplementation lowers high blood pressure, helps keep your heart healthy and can assist in the prevention of common ailments such as constipation, kidney stones, gallstones, and osteoporosis. Low serum magnesium levels are associated with metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus type 2 and hypertension.  What is not so well known about the mineral is that it can be used as a tool to promote weight loss.

weight loss

It allows insulin to usher glucose into the cells which are important because glucose is involved in making energy for the body. If the body does not contain a sufficient amount of magnesium, it may cause both the insulin and glucose levels to become elevated. The body then stores this excess glucose as fat which can lead to weight gain. Elevated insulin levels can also lead to more series conditions such as diabetes.

Magnesium is also known to effectively control the link between obesity and stress. Stress causes the cortisol chemical to signal a metabolic shut down in the body and this can make achieving weight loss to become extremely difficult. When magnesium is consumed on a regular basis, it is known to neutralize the effects of stress. Overeating and food cravings can often be linked to your body actually craving nutrients instead. If your diet is not particularly nutrient-rich, you will most likely feel hungry again quickly, because your body has not had a satisfactory level of nutrients. You then continue to eat foods with empty calories, which pack on the pounds but go no further to consuming the nutrients that the body needs.

 

According to the WebMD website, the recommended daily amount for women who are 31 years or over is 320 mg. The dosages vary for pregnant and breastfeeding, however. The dosage for men who are 31 years or older is 420 mg.

Abdominal obesity is also linked to a magnesium deficiency and an inability to properly use insulin within the body. According to the book The Magnesium Factor written by Mildred Seelig, M.D and Andrea Rosanoff, Ph.D., as the body produces more and more insulin to cope with a high-sugar diet, your waistline increases to process extra insulin, with over half of the insulin in the bloodstream being directed at the abdominal tissue.

Here are some foods which contain magnesium

Foods That Help You Lose Weight – Food to Promote Weight Loss

Foods That Help You Lose Weight

With any weight loss, it can be very hard to find foods that will help you lose weight. There is so much junk out there, even stuff that disguises itself as healthy but in all actuality is quite bad for you is difficult to tell from the junk foods. There are way too many foods that contain hidden sugars, sodium, and starch that unless you read every label, you’ll never know just how bad the food is that you’re eating. A good place to start is to read labels. Know what you’re putting in your body because you are what you eat and I don’t think you want to have a body full of chemicals that it doesn’t need and worse make you fatter. So how do we find those fat burning foods? Well, I will share a few with you.

Water. Water may be the most important item on the list as fat is water soluble in the body which means the more water your body goes through, the more fat you’ll lose. This assumes, of course, that you’re going to include exercise in your daily routine. Exercise is key to a healthy body.

High Fiber Foods. If water is number 1 on this list, it only makes sense that foods that are 70 to 95% water are second on the list. These high fiber foods are 5 to 30% in micro-nutrients instead of just sugars and carbohydrates that have a tendency to pack on pounds. Micro-nutrients include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals like flavonoids (polyphenols). All these ingredients are highly important in combating illness and diseases like cancer, heart disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig s disease), high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and even depression, when combined with exercise.

In 2003, the World Health Organization concluded that dietary fiber was the only dietary component that had convincing evidence showing a protective effect against weight gain and obesity. This brings up the question, what foods are high in fiber? Fiber comes in two forms, soluble and insoluble.

Soluble fiber is found in varying quantities in all plant foods, including:

  • fruits and some fruit juices (including prune juice, plums, berries, ripe bananas, and the insides of apples and pears)
  • Vegetables. I cannot say enough about the fat burning properties of vegetables. They should be included in every meal. Vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and Jerusalem artichokes root tubers and root vegetables such as sweet potatoes and onions (skins of these are sources of insoluble fiber also)   psyllium seed husk (a mucilage soluble fiber) and flax seeds. They contain many vital micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants,
  • nuts, with almonds being the highest in dietary fiber

Sources of insoluble fiber include:

  • legumes (peas, beans, peanuts, and soybeans)  (Not recommended)
  • whole grains like oats, rye, chia, and barley (Not recommended)
  • whole grain foods (Not recommended)
  • wheat and corn bran (Not Recommended)
  • nuts and seeds(Recommended)
  • potato skins (Not Recommended Due to Glyphosate Contamination)
  • lignans (Flaxseed and sesame seed contain higher levels of lignans than most other foods. The lignans are a large group of polyphenols found in plants.[1] Some examples of lignans are enterolignansenterodiol, and enterolactone, according to Wikipedia.
  • vegetables such as green beans, cauliflower, zucchini (courgette), celery, and nopal
  • some fruits including avocado, and unripe bananas
  • the skins of some fruits, including kiwifruit, grapes, and tomatoes

Lean meat protein sources. You should be eating a good amount of protein if you are looking to lose weight. Protein takes more energy to metabolize to it raises our metabolism when we eat it. You just have to eat the right kinds of protein. Stay away from protein that is high in saturated fats like beef, pork, and cheese. Also stay away from sources that are high in sodium. Try fish, chicken, turkey, tuna, and salmon. Egg whites are excellent in the morning.

Stay away from all sugars and bread, sodas, sweetened cereals, pastries, pasta,  wheat products, including bread, floured foods, fast foods and processed foods. Read the label. If you can’t understand everything that’s in it and what role they play in your health, don’t eat it. Beware of the wheat products that you eat. Wheat isn’t as healthy as it once used to be, thank genetic engineering for larger crop yields and gourmet wheat products. Read Dr. William Davis’ book Wheat Belly and prepare to be astounded and alarmed. This book will change your life.
