More Addictive Than Cocaine…Cheaper Than Crack

Are You Addicted To This?

Do you remember the big stink in the U.S. a few years back surrounding McDonald’s and their food, most notably French fries? It was the big trans-fat scare!

That’s right, we were being poisoned by the evil clown with deadly fat and something had to be done! Yeah, because they cared sooo much…

So the government stepped in and the burger giant was forced to change their frying oil. On the surface of it all...wasn't it nice of good old Uncle Sam to care.

To safeguard and protect we, the ignorant masses, and to ensure that when we’re shoving super-sized fries into our pie holes... that they’re not entirely unhealthy! (funny)

Sweet… but do you know that despite your choice to visit Mickey Dee’s... 

There is something found in virtually every can, box or bag of food in the grocery aisle that’s incredibly addictive, almost immediately turns to fat when you eat it and is one of the leading causes of most of the ailments we suffer today?

So what is this secret ingredients, which is not only ignored by the government but actually supported by it?

Sugar...Sugar...Wonderful Sugar

Sugar is okay in small quantities, is extremely unhealthy, fattening and very... very addictive.

That’s right...thousands of independent clinical studies have shown that sugar is more addictive than cocaine and even heroine… …and it’s in virtually everything we eat!

Here’s how it works, You eat yummy sugary foods, your blood sugar levels peak, and your body releases Dopamine (that feel good chemical in your brain) and Insulin which in turn your body stores as fat.

Its the same chemical that triggers other pleasurable experiences like having sex, listening to your favorite music, the buzz of achieving a goal, or the rush after training... but on the flip side it has the same effect as, drugs like... cocaine, heroin, or meth.

Addiction

Just like a drug addiction, regular sugar use builds up in the body and the brain eventually gets use to that high and become less sensitive to sugar, so to get the same rush, your brain needs more and more sugar to enjoy the same buzz...

And after any high you come down... like an addict you cash... your sugar level plummets and you feel tired, hungry, and search for the next sugar fix.

This behaviors triggers neurochemical changes in the brain and the urges for something sweets completely overpowering your common sense and best laid plans to eat healthy, just like an addict.

So is it any wonder why you might find it hard to drop the poundage.

Health and Fitness

Health, fitness and weight loss are complex issues and we’ve been fed a lot of myths over the years.

It is a Billion Dollar Industry...that's right Billions are spent each year on the latest gimmick, fad, diet, or exercise program.  

Why?... because people are constantly looking for help to solve a long term challenge, a personal challenge... and the solution is out there.

But first you need to educate yourself about what works specifically for you... your body...your age...your sex even, it all matters and can determine whether you succeed or fail...you need to consider these things before you take action...but act you must!

Knowledge

The thing is all the info you need is out there in the public domain, and most of it is free... the issue is you are busy, life gets in the way, not everyone one has time to surf the web, plus we get distracted...nekminit hours have passed... time is wasted. 

That’s why I’ve made it my goal to share the as much as I can about foods, exercise and weight loss programs... so that you can make an informed decision and decide for yourself what works for you.

If you’re looking to lose weight, have ever struggled with your weight or are just sick and tired of paying for the next big fitness craze, diet or gizmo that never seems to work, then I want to help you to learn more about the foods you eat and the way your body works.

Checkout this website>>>Go here for more info<<< it provides a wealth of info about sugar and also offers a coaching programs for both men and women catering for the individual needs for both sexes.

At the end of the day I believe all things in moderation...

A little of exercise is better than none...a little bit of meditation is better than none...a little bit of me time is better than none...a little bit of sugar won't kill you..

...but whats also important  is what you believe..

Knowledge is only power when you use it...a little bit of action each day is good!

Have a Great Day...Peace

Intermittent Fasting

What is Intermittent Fasting

Well the first I heard about this is when after a conversation with a couple who have been doing this for a while, the same couple that told me about that program on Netflix...What the Health (ewww).

I told them I'd been doing the  lifestyle change thing too.

The Diet ( what I thought were the right foods )

The Exercise (3-5 times a week)

The Right Amount of Sleep (I'm insomniac which is a challenge) 

The Motivation (Reading motivational stuff and maintaining a positive mental attitude) 

The Visualisation and Meditation...

But I was still lacking energy...Why?

They explained that it's not just what you eat that's important... it's when you eat that actually affect your bodies ability to function properly.

You don’t have to change what you eat, (unless you have watched What The Health on netflix) but its the time you are eating that makes all the difference. You don't have to count calories or going crazy on the latest diet. Intermittent fasting even allows you to eat bigger meals but within a shorter time frame.

Really?... fascinating...interesting...tell me more, so I asked them heaps of question.

Basically there’s three 8 hour periods...One for Detoxification, One for Digestion and One for Nutrition Assimilation. 

Eating only during the digestion period is the key.

So after a bit of research this is what I found, that for thousands of years different cultures have only eaten at specific times of the day for optimal health, which is known as... Intermittent fasting.

This is also one of the latest crazes amongst bodybuilders and athletes at the moment, because it allows you to lose a lot of fat whilst keeping strong because it’s a process that allows you to maintain or even build muscle.

Wow that's crazy right... building muscle while fasting really? the losing weight make sense... but the building muscle and keeping strong? hmm interesting...

So I learn that there are three periods of Intermittent Fasting

Fasting Period 1 – Detoxification: 4am to 12 noon

This is the time that your body to be in detox mode. 

It is recommended that during this period stick to drinking water. I recommend Kangen Water it the best.

Fasting Period 2 – Digestion: 12 noon to 8pm

This period is suggested to be the best time for our body to break down the foods you eat preparing it for absorption.

Fasting Period 3 – Absorption: 8pm to 4am

This is when the digestive system is at its best ready to absorb vital nutrients into your body. 

We are a complex biological system, (which I will not be getting it) and in order to look after our bodies long term we need to understand how it works...when it works... and how to work in harmony with our bodys needs in order to improve our health and extent our longevity.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, for a more indepth look into to benefits of intermittent fasting... check out the link below, and if you do it was nice knowing yah haha this dude is awesome...

The #1 Most Common Food You Should NEVER Cut From Your Diet!

The #1 Most Common Food You Should NEVER Cut From Your Diet!

Ever since the 1970’s when folks like Jim Fix with his jogging book and of course fitness icon Richard Simmons began to get the world onto the fitness band wagon, a lot of information has come through our TV’s about how to lose weight and get healthy. But is this reliable info? is it even up to date?

I mean come on if you remember these guy's your showing your age... lol and if you don't you're a millennial and Google everything, am I right?

Unfortunately, much of it is inaccurate, misunderstood or even dangerous over time. The weight loss industry generates something over $70 billion in the U.S. alone… it’s big business and these companies and personalities know how to tap into our psyches and tickle those nerves that make us want to try their pills, foods, workouts and vibrating belts that melt the fat while you veg out in front of the tube.

Food has always been one of these areas that’s capitalized on the last 40+ years of America’s and other nations’ weight loss craze. First it was reduced fat and fat free! Sounds great, right? Yeah, except that when they take the fat out of your favorite cookies, they simply replace it with more sugar… hmm, doesn’t sound so great, does it?

In the early 2000’s, if you recall, carbs became fitness public enemy #1. All of a sudden, people who a year before barely even knew what carbohydrates were began to go on no carb diets. Then it was gluten. Again, before 2010 or so, most folks never even heard of this thing… and now, it seems like every food has a gluten-free substitute and half of all living humans are allergic to it.

Weird, right?

But you know what one of the most attacked food items has always been, even before the 70’s – SALT!

Yes, good old sodium chloride is the arbiter of all that’s evil in the world. Salt raises your cholesterol… oh, no that’s actually not true… salt is a key ingredient in weight gain… oh, that’s false too…

The truth is, in fact, that salt is absolutely vital to your body’s health. It’s needed in the bio-chemistry of your cells. Yet even more obvious is that when you cut salt out of your diet, you actually inhibit your body’s ability to digest food! And of course, that means putting on more weight and also limiting the amount of nutrients you can absorb.

Salt helps your body balance and optimize the PH level in your stomach. In other words, it helps make sure that your stomach acid is strong enough to break down the food you eat so that the nutrients in it can more effectively be absorbed as it passes through your digestive tract.

Salt is actually one incredibly important element in any good weight loss program. Like many people, I thought differently until running into a Korean medical student in Afghanistan who opened my eyes to a whole new – yet ironically ancient – way of looking at health, fitness and weight loss. He showed me the science behind what eastern cultures have known for millennia.

If you’re looking to lose weight, or you’ve ever been frustrated by your lack of progress… some of the latest science may shock you as to why. There are myths about weight loss that we’ve been fed for far too long and yet the scientifically proven and tested truth has simply been lying in the grass waiting to be uncovered more on that later..

Watch the Video and check out the Truth about Salt!!

#mindblow... I did not know...Wow!
