Diet Soda… begins with DIE

It hurts me so much to see people really believe in this crap called DIET Coke, DIET Sprite, DIET Gingerale, and the list goes on.

Does it make sense to you that this very sweet tasting drink is 0 Calories, no sugar, and supposed to keep you on a lower scale?

Let me guest, trying to stay healthy while substituting sugary drinks for diet drinks in droves of in-taking less sugar staying healthy. Well evidence has emerged to refute that rationale.

I know you all have a brain, please use it with me for a few minutes and assess how this all makes sense.

It is all ARTIFICIAL! It is all Lies.

You need more proof then what is already out there, Here you go!

A study with National Post has been done that shows that

People who drink diet soda daily are almost three times more likely to develop stroke, dementia.

I have been telling people for years now … Sweetener does not make you lose weight, it makes you GAIN weight through METABOLIC SYNDROME, You cannot burn it, you slow your fat burn process! Watch this video and see WHY?!

Should I be Drinking Wine?

 Should I be drinking wine?

Of course You should!

wine

Resveratrol,  a trihydroxy stilbene derivative C14H12O3 that is found in some plants, fruits, seeds, and grape-derived products (such as red wine) and has been linked to a reduced risk of coronary disease and cancer, and may be the wonder ingredient responsible for many of wine’s benefits.

See these fourteen benefits of wine to prove this to you!

1. You live Longer!  People living in places in the world with high wine consumption, are living longer, also according to dietary patterns.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School uncovered evidence that resveratrol directly activates a protein that promotes health and longevity in animal models.

  • 2. You get Smarter and Resveratrol may help improve short-term memory
  • 3. Inhibit breakouts because of the antioxidants in wine, and Resveratrol is able to inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria longer than benzoyl peroxide
  • 4. Going to the gym is healthy right? It improves heart, brain and bone function. You know what else does that? Resveratrol, which is in wine.

5.Researchers in Spain found that those who drank two to seven glasses of wine per week were less likely to be diagnosed with depression, so Bye Bye Blues!

6. Modest wine consumption, defined as one glass a day, may decrease the prevalence of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Challenging any other alcohol consumption.

7. Promotes Eye health, as Resveratrol stops out-of-control blood vessel growth in the eyes.

8. Wine reduces bacteria on your teeth!

9. Wine cut Cancer Risks:

Red grapes are the fruit best able to suppress the activity of aromatase, the enzyme used by breast tumors to produce their own estrogen – this is called an aromatase inhibitor.

Studies show that moderate consumption of red wine can reduce the risk of colon cancer by 50%.

Harvard Men’s Wealth Watch reports that men who drink an average of four to seven glasses of red wine per week have a 52% less chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer compared to those who don’t drink wine. Doctors speculate that flavonoids and resveratrol contain potent antioxidants and may counterbalance androgens, the male hormones that stimulate the prostate.

10. Studies show that those who drank wine were less likely to come down with a cold compared to those that drank beer or spirits. Antioxidants help lower inflammation and reduce the symptoms of colds.

11. Wine’s Resveratrol, lower cholesterol.

12. Wine shows benefits of reducing risk of stroke, where beer and hard liquor do not.

13.  Regulating Blood Sugars

The amount of polyphenols in a small glass of red wine appears to rival the blood sugar regulating activity of certain diabetes drugs.

14. Those who drink wine moderately have 30% lower risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. This can be due to Resveratrol, as it improves sensitivity to Insulin.

SO, Bottom line: Wine can be a part of a healthy lifestyle, IF CONSUMED MODERATELY!

Shake OFF The Salt Shaker !

Salt… Sure it’s delicious when added to foods. It gives a TASTE, it changes the whole EXPERIENCE.
But what about your health? Does it matter to you if you have Diabetes, Heart Problems, High Blood Pressure?

Salt is the Devil’s drug… Sad to say, but for some people it is in fact like a drug. The more the better, the less The worse their food is.

According to the American Heart Association, your daily sodium dose should be 1,500 mg (about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of regular table salt). Most North Americans take in around 3,600 mg. About 75 percent is from restaurant and processed foods (that turkey and bread in your lunch are examples); 12 percent is naturally found in food; and another 11 percent is added while cooking and eating at home. High-salt diets are associated with high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and stomach cancer. And a new study shows that if everyone cut their salt intake by 40 percent (it would still be sky-high at 2,200mg), that alone could save a half a million lives in the next 10 years!

Needless to say, Salt has been the reason for many health problems and it is one of the easier ways to avoid that risk. Salt is not only the amount of powdered salt that you put in your food, its much more than that. Salt is the amount of SODIUM in everyday foods that you buy. These are processed foods, dressings, sauces, and more. SOY is a perfect example of source of SALT that many of us ignore, which in fact carries over thousands of milligrams of sodium.

A little about the DASH Diet:

How much Citrus do You consume Daily?

“Flavonoids are plant-based compounds with powerful antioxidant properties, which means they reduce inflammation, promote healthy arteries, and help prevent and repair cellular damage”, explains CBC News.

Studies show that women who consume flavonoid-rich foods such as certain citrus fruits may help reduce the risk of stroke. In fact, one citrus fruit on average contains 45 to 50 mg of flavanones, which is a specific class of flavonoid which lowers the risk of ischemic (blood clot-related) stroke in women who consume it than those who do not. In fact, what these flavanoids have been proven to do is to improve function of the blood vessel to exercise an anti-inflammatory effect.

Researchers found that most of the antioxidant-rich products that lower stroke risk for women were oranges, grapefruit and their juices.

Studies have also shown that women with a high intake of flavanoid: smoke less, exercise more, consume more fiber, more folate, more fruits and vegetables, and consume less caffeine and alcohol.

More studies are to come, for further confirmation, however keep in mind to intake as many citrus fruits as possible; this also includes antioxidant-rich products, as I spoke about in my first Blog on “Fighting Cancer”. Keep your health intact and do as much as you can to facilitate your growth!
