Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?
Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (The DASH diet) is a dietary example advanced by the U.S.- based National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (a faction of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), an office of the United States Department of Health and Human Services) to avert and control hypertension. The DASH diet is abundant in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods; which consist of meat, poultry, fish, nuts, and beans; and is restricted in sugar-sweetened foods and refreshments, and included fats.
As this is the first discussion post I want to tell you a bit about how and why I started this website. In 2010 I had the last of 6 surgeries to my lower back. That sixth being a complete lumbar fusion (L2-S1). My first two surgeries began in 1994 while I was still on active duty with the Navy. There were 3 others sprinkled during 1991 to 2010.
Perhaps one of the most popular diets out there is the traditional low carb diet. Some people may feel a bit confused in that this type of diet allows us to eat what we may consider to be an unhealthy amount of fat. This could not be further from the truth. Fat is essential to our body’s health and well-being, while carbs are notorious for contributing to high levels of blood sugar and insulin. High blood sugar is known to play a part in almost all diseases of a chronic nature, from the obvious diabetes problem to dementia, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. Less carbs in your diet naturally means lower levels of sugar and insulin in your system.
Destruction from free radical is accumulative and extends fast over time. Be kind to your body by providing it with a diet which has a lot of antioxidant nutrition. Form a routine of consuming vegetables and fruits, take vitamins and attempt to reduce or stop destructive poor habits. In 20 years you will be grateful to yourself.
A study conducted by scientists showed that people who eat a lot of fruits and vegetables have reduced risks for cardiovascular disease and cancer. This is because their bodies are able to absorb vitamins and minerals from food and increase their energy level. However, it is important that one should have a good diet in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, it is important to remember to eat fruits and vegetables daily. It is important to consume them in large quantities to get the nutrients and to help to reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease and other health problems caused by unhealthy foods.

After continuously losing weight for several weeks or even months, your weight seems to have suddenly stopped at a particular number, and unfortunately, it is still 10 to 30 pounds short of your ultimate weight goal. You face the almost unbelievable truth that you have stopped losing any more weight because your trusty low-carb diet seems to have malfunctioned and suddenly stopped working! And you ask yourself, “WHY?”
So, what, exactly, are the benefits of the paleo diet? Firstly, I have found it much easier to maintain a healthy weight or even lose unwanted pounds. This is because I avoid carbohydrates. Limiting my intake of carbs leads to a corresponding lowering of body fat, as well as more efficient use of the insulin my body produces. Fewer carbs mean less insulin produced. And lowering my carb intake leads to a lower chance of my developing type 2 diabetes.
A number of you might be grown up enough to remember the Food Pyramid of 1992; it consisted of grains as the pyramid’s biggest block at the bottom, urging you to consume 6 to 11 servings of cereal, pasta, bread and rice every day.
