Health: Benefits of “Fasting”?

10 Evidence-Based Health Benefits of Intermittent Fasting healthline.com
“…
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting.

Numerous studies show that it can have powerful benefits for your body and brain.

Here are 10 evidence-based health benefits of intermittent fasting.

1. Intermittent Fasting Changes The Function of Cells, Genes and Hormones

When you don’t eat for a while, several things happen in your body.

For example, your body initiates important cellular repair processes and changes hormone levels to make stored body fat more accessible.

Here are some of the changes that occur in your body during fasting:

Insulin levels: Blood levels of insulin drop significantly, which facilitates fat burning (1).
Human growth hormone: The blood levels of growth hormone may increase as much as 5-fold (2, 3). Higher levels of this hormone facilitate fat burning and muscle gain, and have numerous other benefits (4, 5).
Cellular repair: The body induces important cellular repair processes, such as removing waste material from cells (6).
Gene expression: There are beneficial changes in several genes and molecules related to longevity and protection against disease (7, 8).

5 Intermittent Fasting Methods: Which One Is Right for You? dailyburn.com
Health by Kate Morin on 6/10/2017
“…The Science of Fasting

As far back as the 1930s, scientists have been exploring the benefits of reducing calories by skipping meals. During that time, one American scientist found that significantly reducing calories helped mice live longer, healthier lives. More recently, researches have found the same in fruit flies, roundworms and monkeys. Studies have also shown that decreasing calorie consumption by 30 to 40 percent (regardless of how it’s done) can extend life span by a third or more. Plus, there’s data to suggest that limiting food intake may reduce the risk of many common diseases. Some believe fasting may also increase the body’s responsiveness to insulin, which regulates blood sugar and helps control hunger…

Intermittent Fasting: 5 Methods

….What and when you eat during the feeding window also depends on when you work out. On days you exercise, carbs are more important than fat. On rest days, fat intake should be higher. ..

2. Eat Stop Eat

….How It Works: Fast for 24 hours once or twice per week. During the 24 hour fast, which creator Brad Pilon prefers to call a “24 break from eating,” no food is consumed, but you can drink calorie-free beverages. ..

3. The Warrior Diet

How It Works: Warriors-in-training can expect to fast for about 20 hours every day and eat one large meal every night. What you eat and when you eat it within that large meal is also key to this method. The philosophy here is based on feeding the body the nutrients it needs in sync with circadian rhythms and that our species are “nocturnal eaters, inherently programmed for night eating.”…

4. Fat Loss Forever

…How It Works: Not completely satisfied with the IF diets listed above? This method takes the best parts of Eat Stop Eat, The Warrior Diet and Leangains, and combines it all into one plan. You also get one cheat day each week (yay!) — followed by a 36-hour fast (which may be not-so-yay for some). After that, the remainder of the seven-day cycle is split up between the different fasting protocols….

5. UpDayDownDay ™ Diet (aka The Alternate-Day Diet or Alternate-Day Fasting)

How It Works: This one’s easy: Eat very little one day, and eat like normal the next. On the low-calorie days, that means one fifth of your normal calorie intake. Using 2,000 or 2,500 calories (for women and men, respectively) as a guide, “fasting” (or “down”) day should be 400 to 500 calories. Followers can use this tool to figure out how many calories to consume on “low-calorie” days….

Then I try to pick two days (usually lunch /breakfast) of the week. I sometimes just eat vegetables and/or fruits only . I use that time to “meditate” in God’s Word or ways to get “closer” in my personal relationship with God.

“..
DO break your fast with something nutritious.
After fasting all day long, you should at least make sure you break your fast with something healthful and nutrient dense, like dates or fresh juice. It is extremely common to break a fast with dates, as per Islamic tradition. Dates are naturally high in sugar, vitamins and minerals and are quickly digested so they are ideal for an immediate energy boost. To avoid the post sugar rush slump, make sure you combine your dates with a protein source like nuts as these slow the release of sugar into the blood. I personally break my fast with a dried date stuffed with a raw walnut followed closely by some fresh juice and water…”

Sal: I’ve fasted during Ramadan before and it was tough! It was my first time to “fast” without drinking any water or food completely. However, I did it with God as I prayed (e.g. for my Muslim friends) and asked God to give me strength. A Muslim friend told me to use this time to “remember the poor” around you, which is a great motivation too!

Lent: A Season of Fasting, Reflection, and Self-Care by Aimee McNew paleoplan.com
“…Lent is intended to be a season of contemplation, sacrifice, and simplicity with fasting and prayer—a time to grow in faith. Easter, of course, has both secular and religious observations, but for Christians, it’s arguably the most sacred time of the year. This is because the entirety of Christian faith is based on the death and subsequent resurrection of Jesus Christ. So Lent is a time of year to take a sobering, sacred look at our personal lives…”

Sal: I’ve had various types of “fasting” during Lent as a sacrifice from “things” that distract me from a “growing personal relationship” with God. One year, I “fasted” from “sweets”. I admit, I had one or more day “breaking” this due to my birthday during Lent season. If you break it, don’t give up entirely! God back and finish with prayer -asking God to deal with overcoming temptation! It’s a faith building experience.

Days of Unleavened Bread isawthelightministries.com
…How To Observe The 7 Days of Unleavened Bread


In the days and hours BEFORE Passover, we must remove all leavening from our houses. Remove all food that has baking soda, leaven or leavening listed as ingredients. In the Scriptures, “leaven/leavening” symbolizes sin. Sin puffs up. So we are learning to remove sin/leavening from our lives. As of sunset on Passover Day, all leavening must have been removed. You may have taken it to a storage unit, given it away or eaten it all up. Refrain from buying bread in the week before so that you will not have as much to remove or eat up before Passover evening. This is the origin of “Spring Cleaning”. Some people like to clean between their couches, etc in an attempt to remove all crumbs which picture hidden sin in our lives. During the week, You WILL find something that you forget or that you did not realize had leavening listed as an ingredient. Again, this pictures hidden sin and the continual process of learning about what sin is and removing worldliness from our lives…”

The Story of Fat: Why we were Wrong about Health

Reading Nutrition Food Labels

Food Labels – Nutrition Labels – How To Read Food Labels

Published on Feb 15, 2017

In this video I discuss how to read food labels and what all of the sections of the label are telling you.

Food labels can be tricky, so it is important to understand what these labels are actually telling you.

The Nutrition Facts Label can be broken into 5 parts; 1) serving size, 2) calories, 3) amount of nutrients, 4) Percent daily value and 5) the footnote portion.

Serving Size
The serving size section tells what 1 serving size actually is, and the total amount of servings in the container. Serving sizes are usually standardized to make it easy to compare similar foods. For instance here are 2 food labels for organic soups, black bean vegetable on the left, chunky vegetable on the right. You can see both list a serving size as 1 cup or 245 grams.

Calories
Next is the calories section. Calories are a measurement of energy from food for your body. Here we have the nutrition label for Lucky Charms cereal. Most people grab a bowl, and fill it up near the top, then add in milk paying no attention to serving size.

But, 1 serving size is actually ¾ of a cup of the cereal and ½ cup of non fat milk. According to the serving size section, this would provide 150 total calories, 110 calories from the cereal and 40 calories from the milk. The full bowl of cereal and milk totaled 448 calories. So, 150 calories vs 448 calories, quite a difference.

Amount of nutrients
The next section lists the amount of nutrients in a serving size. Here you will see the macronutrients, Fats, carbohydrates and protein. Macronutrients are what provide calories, or energy for your body. Other items listed usually include cholesterol and sodium, and typically under the carbohydrates section the amount of fiber and sugar are listed.

Cholesterol, sodium and sugar are listed because many people over consume these items, and fiber is listed because most people are deficient in it. The percentages on the right tell you the percentage of the recommended amount of each item, in a serving size. These percentages are based on a person consuming a 2000 calorie diet per day. For instance, the black bean vegetable soup provides 5g of fiber, at 20%.

This means that 1 serving of the soup provides 20% of the recommended amount of fiber most people need per day. Keep in mind that every persons nutrient needs are different.

Percent daily value of micronutrients
Percent of daily value is the next section. This section tells you the percentage of micronutrients, vitamins and minerals, in a serving size of the food item. Again, These percentages are based on a person consuming a 2000 calorie diet per day.

If we look at the lucky charms label, we see the cereal provides 10% of the recommend daily value of calcium, with the milk that increases to 25%. So, one serving size of the cereal with the milk will provide 25% of the recommended amount of calcium most people need per day. Again, Keep in mind that every persons nutrient needs are different.

Footnote
The last part of a food label is the footnote section. Percent daily values are based on 2000 calorie diet. This statement appears on all food labels, as you can see on this cracker label and on this yogurt label. The remaining portion you see on the yogurt label will appear if the size of the label is large enough.

The recommended daily values are listed for several nutrients, and are based on public health experts’ advice. They are listed for 2000 and 2500 calorie diets. The recommended daily values change for the energy nutrients, but stay the same for cholesterol, sodium and potassium.

You can also see that the recommendations for total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium are listed as less than, meaning that these are maximum intake recommendations.

I will say this for a 3rd time, only because it is extremely important, every persons nutrient needs are different, an athlete, a runner, or someone that leads a very sedentary lifestyle. All of these people will have different nutrient needs.

And that be the basics on food labels.

Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science…
Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health…

Today I am going to teach you guys how to read nutrition facts labels. One of the best ways to improve your health quickly is by learning how to read nutrition labels.

The first thing you’ll notice at the top of nutrition facts are the serving size and servings per container.

This is simply the “amount” in the package or container.

Pretty self explanatory…

Next you have the ingredients.

Everything inside these black lines is representative of ONE serving.

This is important to understand because, next you will see the calories and the calories from fat.

This is pretty much the only thing most people ever look at and this is a common mistake…

If the package says 200 calories on the bag of chips, but the serving per container says 2.5, that means there is actually 500 calories in the bag…

This is a clever little marketing trick that you should pay attention to.

Pressing on, you will see the total fat on the package along with a number and a percentage on the right hand side.

The number represents the total fat in one serving and percentage represents the percentage based on a 2000 calorie diet.

So 8 gram is 12% of a 2000 calorie diet.

I should also remind you that fat is not bad for you and there are plenty of healthy foods that are high in fat.

What you really want to watch out for is any trans fat.

Trans fat is the kind linked to heart disease and all sorts of bad stuff. Avoid this at all costs.

Saturated fat should be much less of a concern.

This may surprise some of you, so I will link a few studies below that have conclusively proven that saturated fat is fine to eat and not the cause of the many diseases it was wrongly accused for.

Think of saturated fat as the middle child of the fat family, he’s got a good heart but is just a little misunderstood.

Now, you may be thinking, wait a minute…

Why does the total number of saturated fat and trans fat not add up to the total fat at the top…

Where’s the other 7 grams?

Well this is because not all fats will be listed on the nutrition label.

Only the nutrients deemed most important ever make it to the nutrition labels.

Don’t worry though.

The other fats not listed are generally healthy and should be much less of a concern.

Pressing on you will see cholesterol and sodium.

Remember, these numbers are based on ONE serving.

If the sodium was 25% of your daily intake and the package had 2.5 servings in it. That means the entire package contains 63% of you daily sodium intake.

Quite a bit considering this is one snack.

Onward, you’ll sees the carbohydrate section.

Carbohydrates are the breads, grains, fiber and SUGARS in the food.

The first section you’ll see is for dietary fiber.

Having a good amount of dietary fiber is a good thing as it helps with digestion and satisfaction from meals.

Now the next section is what you need to pay attention to.

The total sugars in the food you’re eating are important to watch out for as, like the trans fats, these have been linked to a whole host of diseases and health problems.

Also you should be aware of not only the sugar in the food, but what kind of carbohydrates you’re eating.

If the food is very high in carbohydrates, but low in dietary fiber, even though the carbs are not labeled as “sugar,” they will operate very similarly in the blood stream.

These are called “simple carbs.”

This is why you need to watch out for unrefined carbohydrates like white bread and pastas.

Next up, you’ll see the label for protein.

Knowing that foods high in protein lead to better satisfaction from meals, and promote lean muscle tissue, you will want most of the foods you eat to have a good amount of protein.

Finally, we have a few key vitamins at the bottom.

It may sound strange, but ignore these.

The numbers will be notoriously low and you should be focusing instead on getting in lots of fruits and vegetables every day to meet your vitamin requirements.

Leafy greens contain calcium and iron, and fruits contain vitamin c and a.

The rest of the nutrition labels facts contain recommendations about how much of each category to get in.

They do not change on nutrition labels and are not that important.

Finally, on some labels you will see the calories per gram for each macronutrient.

Fat contains 9 grams per serving and Carbohydrates and Proteins contain 4.

So for every 10 grams of fat, you will have 90 calories. For every 10 grams of protein or carbs you will get 40 calories.

Safe to say, you should now have a general understanding of how nutrition labels work.

Most importantly, you can stop assuming something is healthy for you based on tricky packaging and start KNOWING the difference.

|July 20, 2011|

‘..According to Dr. Oz, the big rule of thumb is that you need to have dinner more than three hours before you go to bed, so that you aren’t going to bed with a full stomach…

When you exercise in the morning — cardio and strength training is key — you kick-start your metabolism, which will help you burn more calories throughout your day…

The best time to eat fats is at 10 a.m because fat acts as a source of energy, so have your fats in the morning so you can burn them off all day. For carbs, 1 p.m is the best time to indulge since they increase your level of serotonin and will prevent snacking throughout the rest of the day — yay for pizza for lunch. Sugar intake is 2 p.m since this will give you instant energy during your midafternoon slump, and 5 p.m is the best time for an alcoholic beverage since in small doses it can act as a stimulant, but in high doses it’s a depressant, so at 5, this will give your body lots of time to metabolize it by bedtime. Three cheers for happy hour!..”

Dietary Fats: What’s Good and What’s Bad familydoctor.org
“..“Bad” fats

Saturated and trans fats are bad for you. Less than 7% of your total daily calories should come from saturated fats. Less than 1% should come from trans fats. In a 2,000-calorie daily diet, that’s less than 15 grams of saturated fat and less than 2 grams of trans fat.

Saturated fats occur naturally in some animal products. This includes meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy items, such as cheese, cream and whole milk. Palm, coconut, and other tropical oils, as well as cocoa butter, contain saturated fat.

Trans fats are made when liquid oils get turned into solid fats. This process is called hydrogenation. Trans fats are found in a lot of processed foods. All food companies have to list trans fat on nutrition fact labels. However, foods can have up to .5 grams of trans fat per serving and still show 0 grams. Check the ingredients list and look for the words “hydrogenated oil.”

You should limit saturated fats and avoid trans fats. They often are found in fast food, fried foods, and snack foods. They also can be in desserts and commercial baked goods. These bad fats increase your LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. They decrease your HDL (good) cholesterol levels….

Monounsaturated fats are found in canola, olive, and peanut oils. They are in a variety of nut oils and butters. Avocados, legumes (beans and peas), and seeds also contain these fats.

Polyunsaturated fats are found in vegetable oils like corn, sunflower, and safflower oil. They are in soybeans, legumes, grains, and nuts. Several seeds, like sesame and sunflower, also contain these fats.

Omega-3 fatty acids are usually found in seafood. This includes salmon, herring, sardines, and mackerel. Flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, and walnuts also contain omega-3s…”

Athletes

Nutrition for Athletes familydoctor.org
“..Most people need between 1,500 and 2,000 calories a day. For athletes, this number can increase by 500 to 1,000 more calories…

Fat is another important source of calories. In small amounts, fat is a key fuel source. It serves other functions, such as supporting good skin and hair. Do not replace carbs in your diet with fats. This can slow you down, because your body has to work harder to burn fat for energy. Fats should make up no more than 30% of your daily calories. When you can, choose unsaturated fats, like olive oil and nuts. These are better for your health than saturated and trans fats. Too much fat or the wrong kinds can cause health problems. It can raise your bad (LDL) cholesterol level and increase your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Protein should make up the remaining 10% to 15% of your daily calories. Protein is found in foods like meat, eggs, milk, b…”

Physiological Adaptations to Training

“In this video we examined the physiological adaptations to training on the body’s cardiovascular system. By comparing the heart rates of two individuals, one a trained athlete and the other an untrained individual, we examined how increasing exercise intensity lead to an increase in oxygen demand to the working muscle and tissues which can be met by either increasing heart rate or stroke volume to ultimately increase cardiac output. Heart rate can only increase to a certain max, so how is the trained individual able to keep exercising at higher intensity while the untrained individual is not? To answer this we used an example using water guns to represent a beating heart. The trained individual was represented by a larger water gun, thus being able to pump out more “blood” per beat and the untrained individual was represented by a smaller water gun and had to fire faster in order to provide the same output. This is a metaphor to the cardiovascular adaptations to training. With training the hearts stroke volume increases and thus allows an individual to train at higher intensity when the heart rate has already reached its max. There are many other physiological adaptations to training consistently, this being one of the most important. If an individual can train their heart to perform more efficiently there is less strain placed on their heart, which can potentially help reduce risk of future cardiovascular disease and increase overall health.”

Lactate Threshold

What Is Lactate and How Does it Affect Your Performance? stack.com
“.. During demanding workouts (e.g., weight training and sprints), athletes are forced to deal with this limiting factor. But athletes are used to toughening up and dealing with pain. The moment when you begin to feel the burning sensation is called the lactate threshold. At that point, you’re still able to function but your energy is limited. After further effort, you reach a point where you can no longer push forward. This point is called the onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA), and it occurs when blood lactate concentrations are upwards of 90 percent.”..

The Performance Benefits of Lactate Threshold Testing and Training By Lindsay Hyman, CTS Pro Coach trainright.com
“..Your body has to clear the lactate from the blood and working muscles and process it back to useable fuels, and lactate threshold is the point at which production outstrips the clearing process and higher levels of blood lactate start to accumulate in the muscles. Lactate threshold can be determined through lactate threshold testing, verified within your training program, and used to make you stronger and faster…

Provided you’re training and striving to improve, regular lactate testing provides you and your coach with concrete evidence of improvement, or lack thereof, throughout the season(s). A history of lactate tests should show changes in fitness, characterized by: increased power and/or pace at threshold, improved recovery heart rate, a higher lactate threshold heart rate, and a higher pace or power-to-weight ratio….

Train Smarter and Race Faster with Lactate Threshold Testing thebodymechanic.com.au
What is lactate and lactate threshold?
“..

Lactate is a fuel source produced when your body breaks down glucose for energy. When training at an easy aerobic intensity, lactate is converted back into energy and it’s concentration in your blood is kept constant. This process is called lactate clearance and this ability differs for everyone.

When pushing a higher intensity, the energy required goes up and more lactate gets produced to cope with the demand. Since your body effectively clears lactate at a fixed rate, the blood lactate concentration will keep rising till it eventually goes out of control. This tipping point is referred to as the lactate threshold.

To better explain this process, try pouring water down a funnel at a steady rate. Then gradually increasing the amount being poured. The funnel can only handle a fixed volume of water passing through and will overflow once maxed out…”

Pre-Workout Tips

7 Foods You Should Never Eat Before A Workout by Rubby WilliamDecember 12, 2016 5:25 AM mindbodygreen.com
“…4. Dairy

Dairy is delicious, but it can make you sleepy and sluggish. Therefore, you should avoid eating or drinking dairy two hours before a workout because it will make you feel acidic, lethargic, and you may even face extreme burping.
5. Protein bars


6. Fatty foods

When it comes to pre-workout foods that you should avoid, some of them are obvious: Think cheesecake, hamburgers, and so on. But you also may want to avoid healthy fats such as avocados and nuts, as they contain high fibers and up your chance for gassiness.
7. Fruit juice..

Almost all juices contain a high amount of natural sugars but less or zero fiber to help absorb energy. There’s no doubt that orange juice contains vitamin C along and other essential nutrients, but it allows you to use up energy from the juice instantly and suffer a drop in blood sugar level after the gym session.

Try eating an apple before starting your workout. It’s a much better choice; trust me.

Carbs Your muscles use the glucose from carbs for fuel.

For short- and high-intensity exercise, your muscle and liver stores of glycogen are your muscles’ main source of energy (3).

Your muscles’ glycogen stores are limited. As these stores become depleted, your output and intensity diminish (4, 5, 6).

Studies have consistently shown the ability of carbs to increase glycogen stores and utilization while boosting carb oxidation during exercise (6, 7, 8).

Medical Cautions

Too Much Cardio Can Cause a 7-Fold Surge of Heart Problems June 01, 2012 • 503,630 views fitness.mercola.com
‘..
Story at-a-glance

Long cardio workout sessions can cause more harm than good, leading to the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which when produced excessively may contribute to a catabolic state, in which your tissues break down, as well as chronic disease
Too much cardio, such as marathon running, raises cardiac risk by seven-fold, and can lead to heart muscle scarring, and increased blood levels of cardiac enzymes, which are markers for heart injury
To get the most benefits of exercise you need to push your body hard enough for a challenge while allowing adequate time for recovery and repair to take place; one of the best ways to do this is to follow a fitness regimen that includes short bursts of high-intensity activities, which can be done using an elliptical machine, recumbent bike or even free weights
When you work out, it is wise to push as hard as you possibly can a few times a week, but you need to wisely gauge your body’s tolerance to this stress, and give your body time to recuperate using rest and proper nutrition

What Is The Best Workout To Improve Aerobic/Anaerobic Endurance? bodybuilding.com
“.. What’s The Difference Between Aerobic And Anaerobic?
Aerobic means “involving or improving oxygen consumption by the body”. Aerobic exercise, therefore, enhances respiratory and circulatory efficiency by improving oxygen consumption. Aerobic movements require oxygen to generate force, and enlist slow-twitch muscles for activity over sustained periods of time (minutes to hours). Examples of aerobic exercise include cardio, jogging, cycling and running marathons. ..

Aerobic Endurance

The best way to increase aerobic endurance (in my opinion) is through cardiovascular exercises. These include skipping, jogging, walking, swimming, etc. I will include methods to increase aerobic endurance for the following 3 stages:..

Exercise Recap

Combining all those different workouts and techniques will yield the best anaerobic and aerobic endurance. Pay attention to the following factors:

The jogging interval training involves the Glycogen-Lactic Acid System and the Aerobic System. It develops the slow-twitch muscle fibers well and it produces an increase in endurance speed while jogging.

The weightlifting focuses on heavy compound movements such as deadlift, bench press, squat, military presses in a 6-12 range so the fast-twitch fibers are well activated. We focus on power ATP surge here so that both A and B type fast twitch fibers take part in the activity. We do drop sets to increase Lactic Acid resistance….

CAUSES

  • The Top 5 Sources of Toxins You Need to Know About (And What You Can Do to Protect Your Health), from bodyecology.com
  • “1. Food – Your food has more toxins than you may think. The biggest culprit for toxic exposure is processed foods, which are full of chemicals and additives that can create symptoms ranging from cravings and weight gain to poor digestive health and food allergies…..

    2…Tap water is teeming with toxins. The Environmental Working Group found over 140 contaminants in tap water.[2] In addition, over the past few years, studies have shown that pharmaceuticals, like prescription and over the counter drugs, are being found in tap water. Some of the most common drugs found in water are: antibiotics, anti-depressants, birth control pills, seizure medication, cancer treatments, pain killers, tranquilizers and cholesterol-lowering compounds. [3] …

    3. Environment – Whether inside your home or outside your home, the environment is also a major source of toxins. Pollution from manufacturing, cars and second hand cigarette smoke can be challenging to avoid. However, you can avoid a lot of the toxins inside and around your home.

    4. Beauty and personal care products – The products we use to look our best may actually be the biggest source of aging and other adverse symptoms. Beauty products like toothpaste, lotion, youth creams, soap, shampoo, conditioner, perfumes and makeup are full of toxic chemicals….

    5. Stress and negative thinking – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that up to 90% of all illness and disease is due to stress.[5] Stress can kill the good bacteria and yeast that live in your intestines and keep your immunity and digestive health strong.

    In today’s video, I want to talk about how to cleanse and detox your liver. Your liver is your second largest organ and is vital to your body’s health, which is why it’s so important to detox your liver.

    The top 5 ways you can detox your liver:

    1. Remove all toxins from your diet (processed grains, sugars, fast foods, packaged foods, conventional meat and diary, and eat real foods)

    2. Consume liver detoxifying herbs like milk thistle, turmeric, and dandelion

    3. Detox your emotions (your emotions directly effect your organs like frustration, resentment, unforgiveness, and anger)

    4. Eat real liver (chicken or beef liver)

    5. Consume foods that cleanse the liver (sprouts, salads, sour foods, probiotic rich foods)

It’s during this period that the person could experience some dangerous withdrawal symptoms that may require medical attention and should be monitored very closely should you decide to do this at home. The second, and longer, phase of alcohol detox occurs over many months as the brain slowly begins to resume normal functioning. This is when sleep patterns are re-established and emotions are regulated…”

    -Lungs

  • How Toxins Make You Fat: 4 Steps to Get Rid of Toxic Weight ultrawellnesscenter.com
  • “..Pranayama: The lungs are the unsung heroes of the body’s detox squad. With each breath, they bring in fresh oxygen and help transport it throughout the body. Unfortunately, the air we breathe is not always clean. Every day the lungs filter out carcinogens in gas fumes, allergens from pets and plants, and spores of mold. Restricted or shallow breathing can diminish the power of the lungs by preventing oxygen from reaching all of your tissues. Breathing deeply and fully will oxygenate your brain, body, and spirit, transforming your health in the process.

    One of the best ways to harness the power of the lungs to heal and detoxify is to learn how to belly breathe. Start by putting your hand on your belly. Breathe out, squeezing the air out of your lungs with your stomach muscles. As you breathe in, relax your stomach muscles and, after filling your lungs, try to push your hand off your belly with your breath, filling the lower part of your lungs. Continue to breathe in and out slowly through your nose. Each in and out breath should last to the count of three. Do this for five minutes a day….

    Sal: I try to do this in a regular basis as my vocal (singing) exercise, but will probably do this more of knowing the “health” benefits too (especially visiting a very “smoggy” air polluted place, like Manila Philippines)

    Foods Rich in Vitamin K2

    Written by Paula Martinac; Updated December 02, 2018 healthyeating.sfgate.com
    “..Vitamin K2 comes primarily from fermented foods and animal products. Fermented soybeans—known as natto—constitute one of the richest sources of natural K2, according to the book Biochemistry, Genetics and Molecular Biology. In Japan, natto is a traditional food often eaten for breakfast with rice and condiments such as mustard or wasabi. A cup of natto offers 40 micrograms of vitamin K2. In addition, it offers about a third of your daily calcium needs and a whopping 34 grams of plant-based protein. Some people, however, don’t like the strong smell and sticky consistency of this food.
    Animal Foods with Vitamin K2

    Chicken, beef, pork, goose and duck, offer MK-4, a type of menaquinone, while beef liver also supplies MK-7, another type of K2. Menaquinones appear in trout, herring and eel, and to a lesser extent in salmon and shrimp. Among dairy foods, fresh milk, cream, yogurt and butter are good sources of different types of K2. Cheeses that are especially rich in this nutrient include the following:

    Cheddar and other English-style cheeses
    Bleu cheese
    Swiss
    Emmental
    Gruyere
    Jarlsberg

    Eggs — both whole eggs and the yolks — are also excellent food sources of the MK-4 type of vitamin K2.

    Vitamin K2 and Medications

    If you’re taking a blood-thinning medication, talk to your doctor about your intake of vitamin K-rich foods, because prescription medications like warfarin may have a dangerous interaction with this nutrient. Other medications, like antibiotics and some drugs used to lower cholesterol, may reduce your body’s absorption of vitamin K.

What I “try” to do every night during my meditation (besides reading God’s Word and listing God’s goodness/blessings that I’m thankful before I sleep), is reflecting on my day and asking God for forgiveness of any “bad thing(s)” (sin(s)) I committed each day as I want to start fresh the next day.

    Health & Fitness: Trying to lose weight?

    Bio: I personally haven’t had any issues with overweight, but I can share some tips on how to lost that weight that’s not needed at times from my life challenges. I remember in junior high school, a classmate of mind grabbed my cheeks hard and teased me about me being “chubby. I knew I wasn’t overweight, but I did have some “baby fat” that made me feel a little guilty. That remarked would stay with me to this day as that played a factor to my start of “trying” to be more fit. I wasn’t really knowledgeable about health and staying fit as I am know (still learning), but I remember I did have some bad choices of eating the “wrong foods” (e.g. too much candy, which resulted a lot of trips to the dentist with cavities).

    I decided to do this blog after having people around me telling me that they want to lose weight, so I want to share my personal tips and some re”search’ I found that I feel are good resources to help them and anyone that want to lose weight:

  • 7 Ways To Beat Stress Fat

    Anxiety is a powerful trigger for weight gain. Here’s how to stop it—fast.

    June 4, 2014 Nancy Kalish prevention.com
  • “..Obviously, getting rid of all anxiety isn’t an option. But by taking these 7 steps to beat stress, you can get your cortisol levels and your weight under control—and improve your health…”

    1. Drop and do 10.
    2 / 8

    That’s right, power out some push-ups. “Moving your muscles is an effective, instant stress reliever. It actually fools your body into thinking you’re escaping the source of your stress,” says Talbott. “Exercise makes your blood circulate more quickly, transporting the cortisol to your kidneys and flushing it out of your system.” But if push-ups aren’t practical, just flexing your hands or calf muscles will help move cortisol along, he says. Even taking a stroll on your lunch break is beneficial. In one study, Talbott found that 18 minutes of walking 3 times per week can quickly lower the hormone’s levels by 15%….

    Sal: I do 3 sets of push-ups and sit-ups almost every other morning, but not to prevent stress.

    “..
    4. Give in to cravings‚ a little.
    5 / 8

    When stress drives you toward something sweet or salty, it’s okay to yield a little. “It’s much better to indulge in a small way and cut off your cortisol response before it gets out of control,” says Epel. “Have a piece of chocolate. You will feel better. Just stop at one.” If you have trouble restraining yourself, take precautions so you won’t binge. Buy a single cookie when you’re out instead of keeping a box at home; or keep them in the freezer so you have to wait for one to defrost…”

    Sal: We all need discipline, which I get mine through “meditation” (e.g. Bible devotional, which I try to repeat this particular verse daily….

    Keep in Step with the Spirit16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy,[d] drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.-Galatians 5http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians%205&version=ESVBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.-Galatians 5http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians%205&version=ESV more... http://life.goodnewseverybody.comorGood News Everybodyhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/234776209988117/Good News Addictionshttps://www.facebook.com/groups/123846551128031/more bible verses...http://smu.gs/1gyTCqB

    I recommend repeating this every morning until you get it memorized and applied in life…that’s pretty much on-gong for me! I personally recommend having an accountability partner that can keep tabs with you in a regular basis as one can’t go through life challenges on their own.

For example, it was my birthday last month and I wasn’t going to refuse the “sweets” (e.g. blueberry pie, my favorite or my “kryptonite”) my co-workers worked hard to prepare. I also had a piece of cake and ice cream for lunch my co-worker made for a couple of other clients at my workplace that had the same birthday.

The juice from one lemon contains 19 milligrams of essential C — roughly one-fifth of the daily needs for men and one-quarter for women. Vitamin C allows your cells to make carnitine, a chemical your cells use to burn fat and make energy. Vitamin C might also help you work out harder, according to a study published in “Nutrition” in 2013. In the study, participants who took vitamin C had a lower rating of perceived exertion — a self-measured scale of how hard you’re working — and experienced less fatigue than people who took a placebo, even though both groups did the same workout. It’s not yet known, though, whether just eating vitamin C-containing foods has the same effect….”

    This non-invasive test simply involves the placement of two electrodes on the person’s right hand and right foot. A low level, imperceptible electrical current is sent through the body. The flow of the current is affected by the amount of water in the body. The device measures how this signal is impeded through different types of tissue. Tissues that contain large amounts of fluid and electrolytes, such as blood, have high conductivity, but fat and bone slow the signal down. As BIA determines the resistance to flow of the current as it passes through the body, it provides estimates of body water from which body fat is calculated using selected equations. ..”

    How to Calculate the Ideal Weight from Lean Body Mass by JESSICA BRUSO Last Updated: Jul 18, 2017 livestrong.com
    “…Calculating Lean Body Mass

    Lean body mass is typically between 60 and 90 percent of your weight. If you know your body fat percentage, it’s easy to figure out your lean body mass; just subtract the percentage from 100. For example, if you have 25 percent body fat, you have 75 percent lean body mass. You then multiply your weight by your percent lean body mass to determine how many pounds of lean tissue you have. Thus, a 140-pound woman with 75 percent lean tissue has 105 pounds of lean body mass.

    It’s also possible to get an estimate from an online lean body mass calculator using your age, gender, height and weight. Equations used to estimate lean body mass sometimes overestimate it, but results are off by no more than a few pounds, according to a study published in BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology in 2013.
    Determining Ideal Weight

    If you want to find out how much weight you need to lose to get to a lower body fat percentage, use the formula:

    Target weight = lean weight / (100 percent – desired percent body fat).

    So, if you weigh 140 pounds and have 25 percent body fat, but wish to have 20 percent body fat, your target weight is 105 / (1.00-.20), or about 131 pounds. Just keep in mind that this is based on the assumption that all the weight you lose comes from fat. If you don’t do strength-training exercises as part of your routine while you’re losing weight, about 25 percent of what you lose will be muscle instead of fat, according to the American Council on Exercise…”

    Taking Girth Measurements ptdirect.com
    “..The most common girth measurements are taken around the midsection (waist and hip) and used to determine fat gain/loss and/or predict the risk for developing heart disease. The science behind these girth measurements is based on the fact that fat tends to accumulate around the midsection. Consequently, if your circumference measurements increase, you are increasing your body fat. In other words, you can now correlate “centimetres gained” to fat kilograms gained and “centimetres lost” to fat lost. There is also a greater risk of developing heart disease when fat accumulates higher up on the body i.e. around the waist as opposed to the hips).

    However, girth measurements (as a prediction of body fat) are best suited to a certain population. This type of test is most successful when used on persons who have average or above average body fat percentages. This is due to the fact that girth measurements tend to increase significantly when individuals are already quite fat and do not decrease significantly when the individual is already quite lean. The calculations used to predict % body fat from girth measurements can be done using an equation and a hand held calculator.

    Visit your health care provider and ask key questions about limitations or modifications that may apply to you. If you are on any medication (especially a blood pressure medication), ask your doctor if you need to follow any special procedures to monitor your exercise intensity.

    You should also get properly equipped so that your exercise sessions are comfortable. There are companies that make workout apparel especially for larger bodies. You can either shop online at stores like ABigAttitude.com or find a retailer in your area that carries plus size activewear.

    1. Clock more aerobic cardio. Any activity that permits you to talk but makes it difficult to carry out long conversations (i.e. aerobic exercise) is a secret weapon for weight loss, says Edward Jackowski, Ph.D., founder of EXUDE Fitness training programs and author of Escape Your Weight. Unlike weight lifting or uber-intense, unsustainably difficult activities (i.e. anaerobic exercise), most people can physically sustain aerobic exercise for long enough to burn a substantial amount of calories. It’s why anyone trying to lose weight should spend about 60 percent of their gym time on cardio and just 40 percent doing other stuff. ..”

    IS LOW INTENSITY EXERCISE MORE BENEFICIAL FOR REDUCING BODY WEIGHT

    “..The question is, then, does low-intensity exercise have a role? Of course it does. But one must look at the goal of the exercise program. If the goal is to improve overall health and reduce cardiovascular mortality, any sort of activity is beneficial. The recent recommendations published jointly by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports recommend that all Americans get at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity most days of the week. This equates to walking approximately two miles per day, four to five days per week. If the goal of the exercise program is specifically to lose weight, the aim should be to maximize total energy expenditure. We have seen in our example that this is best accomplished via higher-intensity work.
    If this last statement is true, then why do most recommendations, especially for the obese, center around utilizing low-intensity, long-duration exercise to meet that end? The answer is twofold. First, if we prescribed high-intensity exercise for overweight and/or unfit people, a high percentage of them would become injured, forcing them to drop out of the program. Second, we know that adherence to high-intensity exercise is much lower than compliance to low- or moderate-intensity exercise. If people don’t perceive exercise or activity to be fun, or at least tolerable, they’re never going to stay with it. This was the professional intent for advocating low-intensity, long-duration exercise in the first place — to get people more active and to keep them active…”

First, body wraps always start with some kind of exfoliation. At the very least, there will be a dry body brushing. However, a dry body brushing is not nearly as effective as a body scrub. Because you want the product they put on your skin to be able to penetrate the skin as deeply as possible, make sure the body wrap includes a body scrub first.
