It has been already known which kind of solid food is good and which is bad for the health and longevity of man. We can read various scientific evidence and facts about the impact of food on people on a daily basis. In the most comprehensive study, conducted in Harvard and published in New England Journal of Medicine, mortality in 100 000 adults over 30 years has been examined. The accent of the study is put on exploring the link to strengthening immunity with consumption of nuts.
The study showed that mortality is reduced by 29% or, the resistance to serious diseases such as cardiovascular. Cancer was reduced by incredible 11% and all other serious diseases were reduced by about 20%. This has been achieved by daily consuming nuts, without changing the diet. The study also showed improved resistance to diabetes, stroke and heart attack, cardiovascular disease, cancer.
Our ancestors have been using nuts all the time, without even knowing their healing properties and nutrient value. Nuts are great source of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins and fiber. They also contain unsaturated fats which have positive effects on our blood and blood’s fats.
The Harvard study has shown that we need to practice eating nuts on a daily basis in order to maintain and also improve our overall health.
It is recommended for the nuts to be eaten raw. You can chose between walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pistachios, cashew (Indian nuts) and/or Brazilian nuts. You can either combine them or eat just one type. However you eat them, make sure you do it on a daily basis. Since they are full of calories, make sure you eat them moderately, about 30 grams, or a handful. Eat nothing more and nothing less but somewhere around 200 calories. Eat the recommended dose and you will provide you good health and long life.
Skin creams, lifters, enhancers, fillers and smoothers. The cosmetic industry is a multi-billion dollar business. But do you realise that what you eat and drink is even more important to the look of your skin than all of the products you find at a cosmetic counter? Here’s a list of ways you can help reduce the signs of ageing.
Eat antioxidant-rich foods. Antioxidants offset the free radical damage we are all exposed to in our day-to-day lives. To maximise your antioxidant intake, consume meals and snacks with plenty of colour. If your diet lacks fresh fruit and vegetables, your skin will be lacking in antioxidants and important phytonutrients.
Aim to include two servings of fruit and five servings of vegetables in your diet every day; especially highly antioxidant foods like red and yellow capsicum, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, berries, broccoli and leafy green vegetables. Green tea is full of antioxidants too, as is ginger, lemongrass and cinnamon herb teas, which are very tasty chilled over ice!
Get more vitamin C. Among other functions, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps protect the body against free radical damage. It also plays a big role in tissue repair, the production of collagen, and maintaining the health of capillaries.
Make sure you include citrus fruit and other sources of vitamin C in your diet, such as kiwifruit, lemon and capsicum. Research suggests that women who consume regular quantities of vitamin C are less prone than others to develop wrinkles and skin dryness that often accompanies ageing.
There are many ways to lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time. However, most of them require you to be hungry and unsatisfied.
If you don’t have iron willpower, then hunger will cause you to give up on these planTs quickly.
The 3-step plan outlined here will:
*Kill your appetite.
*Make you lose weight fast, without being hungry.
*Improve your health at the same time.
Step 1 – Eliminate Sugars and Starches
The most important part is to remove sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet.
These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.
When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs.
Another benefit of lowering insulin is that your kidneys shed excess sodium and water out of your body, which reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight (1, 2).
It is not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds (sometimes more) in the first week of eating this way, both body fat and water weight.
