Good Health Tips For You

Do You Know The Best Time To Exercise?

Is it better to exercise in the morning, the afternoon or the evening? Is there really any advantage to one time or the other?

Actually, there is. When choosing the perfect time to exercise, there is one time frame that consistently seems to produce best results, and that's mornings.

Here are some of the reasons why mornings are best:

  • It gives you an energy boost. After a good night's sleep, your muscles are rested and rejuvenated (even if you still feel sleepy). They're more responsive to stretching, moving and training, especially weight and cardiovascular training. Working out in the morning will help you lift more weight and tone your muscles better.
  • It helps your body burn fat more efficiently. That's because in the morning, the body isn't dealing with digesting food. The stomach is empty from the previous day's meals and will burn fat cells for energy right away. If you eat breakfast before you exercise, it still works out well. If you had a high-protein breakfast, the low amount of sugars from breakfast burn off quickly immediately followed by fat burning. 

  • A morning routine "jump starts" your metabolism. When you start the day by burning fat, you'll burn more calories all day long!
  • Morning workouts energize! They pump blood, oxygen and healthy endorphins through your body. That alone sharpens your thinking, clears your mind, and put you in a good mood! And the effect can last up to ten hours after you exercise!
  • It regulates your appetite. When your body has all the blood, oxygen and hormones it needs, your blood sugar level is more stable. You don't feel the urge to splurge so often and aren't tempted by junk food.
  • It helps you stick to your schedule. With our hectic schedules, it's easy to skip exercising on especially busy days. But if you've already exercised in the morning, it's done and out of the way, and you feel great.
  • It will free up your evenings. You won't feel chained to gym for 30 to 45 minutes of your evening. It's the only way to make sure you fit exercise into your schedule.
  • It can also help you sleep better. Research shows that people who exercise regularly require less sleep and get a higher quality of sleep. Part of the reason is that your body functions better when you exercise, allowing you to sleep better. And when your body knows you're going to be active as soon as you awaken, your endocrine system and circadian rhythms adjust to sleeping deeper and waking up more alert.
  • Most importantly, it will help you stick to your weight loss/fitness plan. Studies show that over 90% of people who exercise consistently, do it in the morning. If you exercise in the morning, the odds of success are definitely in your
You may feel your mornings are hectic how can you possibly fit anything more in? One suggestion is to go to bed 30 minutes earlier, then wake up 30 minutes earlier for a workout.
But what if exercising in the morning is simply impossible to fit into your schedule?
Then it's better to do it whenever you can, rather than not at all. Here are some other options:

If you have a 2 hour lunch break, there's plenty of time to fit in a sport, workout, or training routine, followed by a shower and lunch. It would be hard to fit it into a 1 hour lunch. But you CAN fit a decent walk (or a game of tennis), and a sandwich into a 1 hour lunch.

If evenings are all you have, use them. If you love to socialize, going to a gym after work is a great way to exercise with friends. And that can help with motivation.

Exercising at night can burn excess fat and calories, but might disrupt your sleep if you work out vigorously. A serious workout or a high level of activity pumps up the adrenaline level in your body. If done within an hour or two before going to sleep, it can raise your body temperature. It also increases the blood flow through your veins, interfering with deep sleep. So evening workouts aren't recommended.

It's also very easy to skip exercising in the evening when you feel tired or too pressed for time. That can become self-defeating.

Be sure to exercise BEFORE your meal. Exercising after meals not only interferes with digestion, but it also raises levels of fat and cholesterol in the blood. A 1999 University of Missouri study found that exercising one hour prior to meals reduced blood fat levels by 40 percent.

In contrast, exercising after a meal resulted in only a 5 percent drop in fat levels. "Exercise stimulates fat-clearing enzymes," according to the study's author (Thomas et al., 1999).

Whenever you do it, find a time that works for you and STICK TO IT! Always remember that the key to losing weight and staying fit is EXERCISE.

The Truth About Antiaging

One of the perpetual quests of the human species is to stem the aging process and find the elusive “fountain of youth!”.

However, finding that one anti aging product has proven to be elusive.
Although no magic bullet has yet been found, the preoccupation with longevity seems to be bearing some fruit because men and women are living longer and life expectancy is expected to continually increase.

No one cause can be attributed to this antiaging phenomenon .
Instead, many reasons are advanced: among them lifestyle changes which include more sensible eating habits, moderate exercises, getting enough sleep and notably, a naturally occurring hormone called DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone). 

What is DHEA?

DHEA is a natural hormone produced by the adrenal gland. The connection with DHEA and aging or antiaging is that the production of DHEA increases steadily from early childhood and peaks by the mid twenties and tends to be higher in men than in women.

At its peak, men are at their most virile and it is believed by some that DHEA at these levels contribute greatly to libido and sense of well being while others have attributed DHEA with helping in many areas including degenerative diseases, for example, osteoporosis.

The levels of DHEA decreases from one’s early thirties and by the time one gets to his or her seventies or eighties, DHEA levels are down to about 20% of its peak.
During the period of declining DHEA levels, antiaging concerns increase since during this period degenerative diseases also increase.

The thinking by many, as a consequence, is that DHEA supplementation to return to DHEA levels of earlier years will allay fears about aging and the accompanying degenerative diseases like osteoporosis by stemming the aging process.

However, caution should be adhered to before taking any anti aging product with DHEA.
Anyone who is pregnant or nursing, lactating, or have prostate problems or family history of prostate problems, or heart disease must consult a physician before taking anti aging product with DHEA.

Possible side effects include acne, hair loss, aggressiveness, and facial hair growth on women. Too high dosage are not recommended.

The Shocking Truth On How I Got THIS FAT

It's always been blamed on calories...

You're too fat because you eat too much! Weight loss is impossible without cutting calories, they say.
Simple . . . right?

Or is it so simple?

Technically, the definition of obesity is when a person's caloric intake exceeds the amount of energy they use up, and the body stores the extra calories in the fat cells present in adipose tissue.

Going by this, weight loss should be achieved simply by taking in less calories, or by burning more calories, than are ingested.

But are calories alone the cause of weight gain and the secret to weight loss? Most Americans actually eat less calories now than they did at the beginning of the century. If everything depended upon calories, we'd all be thin. Unfortunately, we're not. In fact, we're heavier than ever.

Why? One reason is we are more sedentary now. But also, our diets are not the rich sources of nutrients they once were. While at the same time, they ARE a rich source of artificial chemicals and hormones that unbalance our systems.

What Are We Getting In Our Food?

Most of the foods we eat are now grown on huge agribusiness farms with chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The land has been farmed so long with chemicals that all trace minerals have been farmed out of it long ago.
Not only that, but the excess chemicals in our bodies are more than most people's kidneys can filter out. The body must find a place to store the excess chemicals it can't process.
Where are they stored? You guessed it - in the fat cells! Unfortunately, fat cells that store chemicals are not easy to get rid of. Weight loss can be a losing battle unless we nourish ourselves better and stop ingesting the chemicals.

Hormones in Meats

Then there are the hormones in our meats and poultry. Agribusiness now produces chickens from hatchling to table in a fraction of the time nature intended. They can fatten up a calf in no time. They do it with hormones.

Nice, plump, hormone-laced chickens and meats are served on our tables, in fast-food establishments, and restaurants daily.

These are hormones nature never intended to be in our bodies. They don't exactly enhance our natural hormones. But rather, they disrupt our natural levels and natural cycles. And when hormones are unbalanced, obesity can easily result. And weight loss becomes nearly impossible.

Plastics Leech Hormones

Plus, there's another source of outside hormones that all of us are exposed to unknowingly - plastics. Plastics leech hormones into the air and into food. Storing food in plastic containers in your refrigerator is NOT a good idea. It's much wiser to go back to glass, pyrex, and stainless steel (make sure nickel hasn't been added).

And did you know that the nice coating lining the inside of canned foods nowadays is plastic? It makes the can look so much nicer on the inside, but it dumps heaping helpings of hormones into your system.

Worse yet is microwaving food in plastic containers. Plastic leeches many times more hormones when heated than at room temperature.
Which brings me to the subject of microwaving…

Is the Microwave Healthy ?

The simple answer is: Absolutely not!
Microwaving destroys food cells and the nutrition in them and adds radiation. What a combination! Not only is your body unable to utilize the microwaved food, but you get radiated as well! It's a recipe for disaster.

I used to work with a woman who, when we started working together, was healthy and strong. But every following year, she looked paler, weaker, and heavier. She began missing work often and caught every bug that was going around. She was gaining weight faster, and began complaining of a multitude of symptoms, as well as being tired all the time.

After several years, she discovered she had radiation sickness. She had been eating three microwaved meals a day for years, but never thought twice about it…until now!

The Importance of the Right Kind of Fats

The other important point to mention is the role of fats in a diet. We have been conditioned to believe that fats are all bad. That we need to stay away from them if we want to stay trim and slim. It's simply not true.

Fats are really a very important part of our diet. Did you know that your hormones are made out of cholesterol? That's right -- without cholesterol, hormones cannot be produced in the body. The body uses HDL (high-density lipoproteins) to produce hormones such as pregnenolone, cortisol, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, testosterone, etc.

By going on a low or anti-cholesterol diet, the chances of those hormones being produced in your body are greatly reduced. Low-fat, low-cholesterol diets can cause women to go into menopause early, or cause devastating PMS symptoms.
In addition, Vitamin D is made in our skin (that is exposed to sunlight) from cholesterol. It is also used in the insulating membranes that cover our nerves. Cholesterol is not the inherent evil we have been led to believe!

Of course, this doesn't mean that an over-abundance of fat in the diet is healthy, either. It's best to follow the "everything in moderation" rule here.

Harmful Fats

We have all heard about the dangers of saturated fat. But there is another source of harmful fats that has crept into the processed food industry. That source is trans fat, found in nearly all snack foods.
The FDA does not require that labels mention trans fat. Yet trans fat is considered worse than saturated fat by some scientists. It elevates bad cholesterol, lowers good cholesterol, and increases triglycerides. And it makes blood platelets stickier, increasing the chance of clots. Even if the saturated fat content of a food is low, the trans fat content can be very high. But only the saturated fat content is required to be listed on the label.

So consumer beware. That "low-fat" snack food may actually contain hidden and harmful trans fats.
Be wary of the hidden dangers in canned and processed foods. And know that the process of microwaving can cause harm to your food and your health.

How to Succeed at Weight Loss

In order for your weight loss efforts to be successful, you have to do more than just count calories. You need to know that snack and junk foods are not nutritious and not conducive to your health or weight maintenance.

You need to avoid microwaving your food or storing it in plastic containers. And avoid eating canned foods. You need to increase your level of exercise and physical activity. And eat a balanced diet that includes a couple servings of beneficial fat each day.

If you have been eating a diet abundant in processed foods, microwaved cooking methods, and/or heavy meats, you may want to consider a temporary detoxification diet.

10 Important Tips to Help You Lose Weight!

Tip 1: Don't think you're "dieting." Think in terms of lifestyle changes. Losing weight permanently is a lifestyle choice, not a diet. Going on a "diet" implies temporary measures. And that might mean gorging once the diet is over. 

But if you think of changing to healthier eating habits to help you look and feel better for life weight loss will be more permanent. That doesn't mean you can never taste the fattening foods you love ever again. Have some (in moderation) once in a while to satisfy your cravings. Then be good to yourself and go back to healthy eating.

Tip 2: Be realistic. Trying to lose 35 pounds in three weeks is more than a strain, its setting yourself up to regain all that weight faster than you lost it! And to regain it as fat, not muscle! It's so much safer to lose two to three pounds a week, and keep them off. It's so much wiser to learn good eating habits and make lifestyle changes that will keep you healthy and trim for the long haul.

Tip 3: Get a friend (or family member) to be your "buddy." We all need encouragement and support once in a while, especially when we're trying to lose weight. When you're about to blow it, it really helps to pick up the phone and talk about it with someone you trust. That may be all you need instead of munching. Likewise, listening to someone else's challenges can help you become more responsible.

Tip 4: Accept yourself as you are now. Life often doesn't go as planned. There are many surprises and unexpected events (including weight gain). If you can accept yourself as you are now, you can allow yourself to move into what you want to become. But if you are resisting who you are or what you've become, it will be that much harder to lose weight because we usually get more of what we resist. The best policy is to accept yourself and what happened to you, and move on.

Tip 5: Deal with your emotions in positive, constructive ways. Much of the time, we eat "comfort foods" when we are sad, unhappy, fearful, uneasy, or angry. Before taking that bite into a piece of chocolate, ask yourself if you are really hungry. And be honest with yourself (hint: chocolate is not the kind of food one would eat if they were really hungry).

Ask yourself how you feel. Do you need to sit down and think about something? Do you need to go for a walk to give yourself the space to think things through? Are you unhappy about something? Do you need to release some resentments on paper or by pretending you're saying them to a real person? Or would a good cry be the thing at the moment? Whatever the emotion is, don't stop it, don't judge it, don't fear it. It's just an emotion let it run its course.

Tip 6: Steer clear of temptation you know you can't resist. If it's impossible for you to go to a buffet without having to have the gravies, the desserts, and overeating, then make sure to choose more suitable restaurants where you can get the kind of food you need. If you're used to going out drinking with your friends every Friday night (and know you can't resist having a few), find something else to do on Friday night.

Tip 7: Don't worry about "cheating" once in a while. Special occasions and holidays are traditions that deserve to be observed. Simply get back on track as soon as possible. Give yourself a few minutes to fret about it, then forget it and move forward. Remember that everybody who tries to lose weight slips up sooner or later, but the winners don't give up!

Tip 8: Take inventory of your life what hasn't worked and what do you need to do differently? What do you want to change or to improve? What do you want to do that you haven't yet done?

Imagine yourself doing it. See yourself accomplishing it. Feel the satisfaction of having done it. If you can't connect with a feeling of satisfaction from visualizing, remember a time when you accomplished something you felt good about (no matter how small). Get back into that feeling and expand upon it. Then imagine yourself accomplishing your new goal, still keeping the feeling going. Stay positive, happy, and grateful during this exercise and you'll notice your life start to change.

Tip 9: Visualize yourself healthy, happy, and slim (all three)! See it… breathe into it… feel it… be it… every day and you'll get there! Imagine yourself wearing the clothes you dream of. See yourself running across the beach in your new bikini. Breathe in the fresh ocean air. Feel the new curves in your body, until you know that's who you are.

Tip 10: Don't give up! Even if emergencies come up and you have to put your weight loss and fitness goals on hold for a while, come back to them as soon as you can. Maintain your commitment. Visualize yourself at your ideal weight doing fun, wonderful, meaningful activities. And don't let anything stand in the way of your happiness.

Super Tips On Optimum Nutrition That Will Inspire You

Optimum Health and Ultimate Wellness is totally dependent on your Lifestyle and primarily controlled by what you currently eat and drink, but more importantly by what you should be eating and drinking. In these modern times virtually everything we eat and drink is "acidic" and therefore creates a serious pH imbalance resulting in aches, pains, chronic disease and premature death.

Natural nutrition is a critical success factor to balance your bodies pH and keep your body and mind performing optimally, and is governed by your diet. To achieve optimum health and ultimate wellness there are things you should be eating and many things you should not be eating.

What is Optimum Nutrition?

Optimum Nutrition is simply feeding the trillions of cells that make up your entire body with the best essential nutrients available, that your cells require to remain slightly alkaline and perform at their peak.

It is interesting to read Wikipedia's definition of nutrition.

"Nutrition is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life. Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with good nutrition".

It is important to remember why you are eating and what you "feeding" ?

We are eating to "support life" and to feed our bodies cells the necessary "nutrients" to enable them to generate the vital energy to perform at their peak at all times. The cells are the core of your life and the oxygen and the food nutrients are the fuel required to feed them and keep them working optimally.

Your "lifestyle" is the blueprint and therefore the only way

So what nutrients does the body need ?

Ideally the body needs about fifty essential nutrients on a regular basis to achieve optimum nutrition. "Essential" means that the body cannot synthesize these nutrients so they must

In summary these nutrients can be categorized into the following groups.
Carbohydrates, fats, fibre, proteins (amino acids, enzymes), vitamins and minerals together with oxygen, water and sunshine. Some argue that exercise is a nutrient.

So what should you do to achieve optimum nutrition?

You should strive, over time to eat a varied combination of 5 or more portions of "whole living foods" every day, especially, raw vegetables, low sugar fruits, green salads, unrefined whole grains, nuts, seeds, grasses and sprouts. If possible you should regularly include fresh vegetable home squeezed juices into your diet as they are packed with phytonutrients and enzymes and can be readily absorbed by the body. (no processed juices or added sugar or sweeteners).

The Superstars

Although all green vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, alkalizing salts that neutralise acids, and enzymes, there are a few "superstar" vegetables you should include regularly in your diet.

Avocado's: considered to be the "perfect food". They contain 14 minerals, including iron, copper potassium and sodium, the very best source of Vitamin E, are full of protein and healthy monounsaturated fats and have an alkalizing effect on the blood and body tissue. Dr. Robert Young recommends that you eat a couple a day.

Tomatoes: must be fresh and not processed. They are very low in sugar and help remove acids, especially uric and sulphuric acids formed from eating meats. Very good for cleansing the liver. Include them in salads and eat a few every day.

Broccoli: contains cancer fighting compounds and is an excellent source of vitamin C. Also contains folate, vitamin A, vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium and riboflavin and provides chlorophyll for cellular cleansing . Eat broccoli raw and regularly.

Cucumbers: low in sugar, high in potassium and is one of the best alkalizing agents available and controls cholesterol.

Onions and Garlic: lowers blood sugars, cholesterol and blood pressure. Contains a large amount of sulphur that buffers acid maintaining healthy pH Balance.

 Wheatgrass and Barley Grass: these grasses are low calorie and low sugar, and the most nutrient rich foods on the planet. Wheatgrass has over a hundred nutrients, including every identified mineral and trace minerals. Also includes all the B vitamins, vitamin C, E, K and high amounts of vitamin A and laetrile. In addition grasses provide high levels of chlorophyll which helps the blood deliver oxygen to every cell in the body and helps neutralise and dispose of excess acid. The best way to include grasses in your diet is through juice. Mix about 85ml of grass juice in a litre of alkaline water and ideally, drink every day. (As you will see in the Nutritional Supplements topic, you can get your Grasses in a "Green Drink".)

Spinach: another wonder vegetable, rich in vitamin A, folate, iron, magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium and Vitamin B6. Improves blood pressure and cholesterol levels and reduces acid.

 Soybeans: whole soybeans and not fermented soy products, A great source of protein and the only vegetable that contains all 8 of the amino acids as well as an impressive array of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and B12. An added bonus is the provision of both Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids.(EFA’s)

 Sprouts: packed full of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nucleic acids, they are 30 to 50 times more concentrated than the nutrients in mature plants. Look out for bean, broccoli, mung, soy and sunflower sprouts and add them to your salads.
Although fresh fruit has a lot of nutrients that the body requires, most fruit has a lot of sugar and therefore the consumption of fresh fruit should be in moderation. Also ensure that you eat "alkaline forming" fruits to help balance.

There are three alkaline superstars that should be included regularly in any diet:
Lemons are the "wonder" fruit when it comes to health, with strong antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting powers and excellent digestive aids and liver cleansing abilities. Despite seeming acidic, these citrus fruits become alkaline as they are digested in the body and are essential in any "body alkalizing" programme.

An easy way to boost your pH Balance is to squeeze fresh lemon juice into water and drink 2 litres a day. (preferably alkaline water-covered in Week 18)

The classical development of Western herbalism has developed over different categories. 

At this level, it is for the student as well as the "just interested" party. Many excellent books abound in libraries and specialty bookshops that the reader will find well worth working through for more detailed study. 

However, I have included a short description of the more common herbs to give you an opportunity to understand their “health application” together with the vitamins and minerals found in each.

Some of the more common herbs and species we sprinkle into or onto our food are taken for granted. But in fact, many contribute to long-term health.

 Just make sure that the ones you buy have not been irradiated or chemicalized in storage, and choose those that have been organically grown initially.

Throughout the history of man, beneficial uses of plants have played an all-important part in health and well-being. 

The medicinal effects of plants were originally discovered by trial and inspiration amongst cultures ranging from the East (Ginseng) and India (Kotu kola) to South America (Guarana) and latterly throughout Europe from where a whole wealth of herbal remedies have developed over the past 300 to 400 years.

The Herbs and Health section relates the historical medicinal uses of some of the more widely known herbs available today.

Herbs and Health

Herbs have medicinal benefits and this fact has been known and utilized for centuries. 

Records of the Roman Empire; Egyptian, Persian, and Hebrew, nations confirm their historical use. 

When the Romans invaded England their armies took no doctors with them, but instead some 200 herbs which they planted and used extensively.

Herbs contain powerful chemicals that are natural and balanced. Whilst modern medicine isolates the so-called powerful main ingredient(s), traditional herbalists have always shown that nature provided lesser powerful ingredients in each herb to act as a buffer, a synergist, a counterbalance to work in harmony and lesser potential side effects.

As far as the parts of a herb are concerned usually roots and barks are fungicidal and bacterial and when dried will retain their medicinal value for many, many years. Alternatively, some parts are poisonous and deadly. Bitter tasting herbs are usually medicinal and are more potent when freshly picked.

Using herbs in a practical way

1.     A compress is a cloth soaked in a herb solution.

2.     A Decoction is a tea made from bark, roots and seeds.

3.     Essential Oils are extracted by either distillation or cold pressed.

4.     Extracts are the result of herbs being soaked in a solvent and allowing the solvent to evaporate.

5.     Herb vinegars result from herbs put into raw apple cider vinegar, rice or malt and left to stand for two or more weeks.

6.     Infusions are obtained by keeping the leaf or flower in hot water for 5 minutes (not boiled) Ointments are adding powdered herbs to a salve.

7.     Poltices are moistened ground (sometimes in salve form) herbs spread on muslin, or cloth and applied for up to eight hours to relieve pain or inflammation.

8.     Powder is ground herbal plants ready to be made into capsules or tablets.

9.     Herbal Salves, creams, oils lotions are used on bruises, sores, aches and inflammation.

10. Tinctures are powdered herbs added to a 50-50 solution of alcohol and water and used on more severely ill cases.

11. Teas are prepared using one to two teaspoons of herbs per cup of off-the-boil hot water. Put herbs in first and let them seep for minutes. If left over ten minutes they tend to get very bitter.

8 Health Benefits Of Raw Foods That Will Motivate You

Have you ever stopped to consider why we cook our food? 

Apart from humans, all animals follow a raw food diet and the only time they gain excessive amounts of weight are when they are fed cooked food by humans.

During the cooking process, enzymes are destroyed and are no longer able to provide the function for which they were designed. 

This places an increasing burden on the pancreas and other organs as the body struggles to 'make' sufficient enzymes in order to be able to properly digest the food we eat.  

In addition to this, cooked and processed foods lacking in oxygen cause acidity in the body - a process that over time greatly contributes to the development of disease and chronic illnesses.

To understand this in its simplest form, an enzyme is a biological catalyst or protein that increases the rate of chemical reactions, without which our systems would take weeks to digest our food and many other systems i.e. nerves and muscle groups would cease to function. More on Enzymes

If we continue to eat cooked foods and fail to replace enzymes by eating Raw Food, we eventually begin to use up our bodies’ Enzyme reserves.

Consumed in their raw state, many foods have enzymes of their own which aid in breaking down the food into fuel for the body which is then absorbed in the form of vitamins and nutrients. 


A good rule of thumb is to aim at following a diet that is at least 75% raw, or 'living' so to speak. Ageing is really nothing more than the body running out of Enzymes. Download your free eBook below if you are among the lucky ones.

Benefits of eating raw food
