In this article, I will shed light on this scary new health risk and share smart tips that you can use to protect yourself and your family from the disastrous effects of xenoestrogens.

What is it, and what does it do to humans?

Diet Change Enhances Weight Loss

Uncategorized Sep 29, 2020

 

One of the most important things to do when trying to get in shape is taking caution of your diet. This does not accept any time from your schedule, and you will feel much healthier when you eat the right foods in the right quantity.

 

One of the best ways to change your diet is to switch to an organic one. It is good to increase your dietary fiber and clean out your colon of all adverse weight loss inhibitors. This means that instead of eating refined or processed foods, you should eat whole grain foods like brown rice and whole-wheat bread. This has more fiber and less bad fats, such as trans fat and cholesterol. 

 

You should also increase your input of protein, minerals, and vitamins. It is good to eat more fruits and vegetables and substitute red meat for fish and chicken. These meats have fewer calories and fat and still provide more protein.

Tips and Tricks to Sleep Better

Uncategorized Sep 10, 2020

Your sleep hygiene is essential in enabling your body to reset itself to be ready for another day. There are plenty of things we can do to promote better quality sleep, like eating a wide variety of healthful foods, getting in some daily movement, and managing stress. Here are some other tips to help you sleep better!

 

- Follow a Sleep Schedule

Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. This will help train your body to know that it's time to rest to get to sleep easier.

 

- Limit Your Use of Electronics for At Least 1 Hour Before Bedtime

The blue light emitted from our cell phones actually sends signals to our brains that it's still daytime, making it harder for us to shut off when it's time for sleep.

Consider writing in a journal or taking down some notes for your next day's to-do list– anything that will help quiet your mind.

Do Carbs Make Me Fat and Ill?

Uncategorized Sep 10, 2020

No, you don’t have to eliminate carbs from your diet entirely to lose weight; however, it is best to get the amount under 100 grams per day. No matter what your friends doing, the Keto diet tells you. We need carbohydrates to function at our best in the long-term. Here’s the catch, though: refined carbs like white bread and pasta have literally been stripped of all their nutritional elements. So not only do these types of carbs spike your blood sugar, but they are linked to inflammation in the body, and they really aren’t adding any value to your diet either. So, choose your carbs wisely! Instead of refined carbs, opt for high-quality carbohydrates like quinoa, oats, sweet potatoes, bananas, or legumes and skip the processed grains and sugars. And remember: any food can cause weight gain if you overeat.

Tip #1: Turn the Negative Self-talk Into Positive Affirmations

Most human beings are really good at negative self-talk. We create obstacles that don’t need to be there. We make things more difficult than they really need to be. We also have a tendency to turn little bumps in the road into huge hurdles. We then use those self-invented hurdles as excuses to stop us from accomplishing our goals. One of the keys to losing weight is to recognize the negative self-talk when it is happening and make a conscious effort to turn it around and replace it with positive affirmations.

The following are four examples of negative self-talk that dieters commonly engage in followed by a positive affirmation you can replace it with.

Why should you eat avocado every day?

avocado avocado benfits Jul 03, 2020

The majority of us grew up believing in the age-old proverb, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But time is now to switch fruit sides – with an avocado. Yes, avocados are cited as one of nature’s rare miracle foods that pack more nutrition, powerful oxidants, and health benefits in its single serving, than found in any other fruit. Move over, apples.

So next time you consume the delicious fruit with its malleable green shell and soft, buttery flesh, be mindful of these six ways the fruit is benefiting you.

Good to the heart

Avocados have quite a reputation for being one of the few fruits that contain healthy “good” fat. They are proven to be sufficiently rich in monosaturated fat, which plays a vital role in lowering cholesterol levels and boosting overall heart health. A quarter serving of an avocado (50g) contains just 6g of total fat, which is rich in anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-reducing phytosterols known to reduce heart disease risks.

The Importance of Posture

 VIRTUALLY EVERYONE—young and old, male or female—has a deep desire to improve his or her life. However, many people have orthopedic problems that prevent them from developing their bodies. These problems occur from a lack of core stabilization and strength, leading to poor posture. Our bodies were designed to withstand many environmental conditions. The ability to stabilize our core musculature is vital to our existence. Our ancient ancestors could not afford to have back pain.

They needed to function on a fundamental level that involved moving rocks, building shelter, climbing mountains, or running after food. If they had a bad back or poor core stabilization and strength, their likelihood of survival would have been deeply diminished.

 

Core Stabilization and Strength

Our core musculature contributes to vital functions within our bodies and enables us to perform simple to complex tasks. Without proper control or stabilization and a thorough understanding of...
