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.
With the knowledge of metabolism types on your hand, it should be a lot easier for you to plan a healthy diet. Eating the types of food that suit your types of metabolisms will give you many benefits. This will help you lose your weight naturally. More importantly, the right diet will also come in very handy in maintaining your overall health.
By January 2006, the United States FDA has finally required food products to indicate the amount of trans-fats, in their food labels. What is disturbing though is that today, over 40 percent of the products in supermarkets have trans-fats in them! What’s even worse is that even most grocery meats are also filled with pesticides, drugs, and hormones which all get transported to our bodies when we eat them!
The nutrition problem is different in different age groups. In the elderly, the problem is not that these people eat less, rather it lies in the fact that they don’t get enough nutrients. Moreover, with age, people become vulnerable to different diseases that may result in malnutrition. It may also be possible that poor nutrition in the elderly causes chronic illness. So, in both cases, nutrition and disease go hand in hand.
If you’re reading this, odds are that you are a bit older, perhaps beginning to see a decline in your strength and mobility, and are looking for a way to decrease, or even reverse the damage of the advancing years.
Seve from the gym can choke back a loaf of bread a day and still sport an amazing six-pack, while if you so much as look at a blueberry muffin your little pot belly expands to the size of a cauldron. Maybe you can blame it on your DNA, and now is the time to educate yourself about how you can adjust your diet by adding Superfoods that will better meet your fitness and nutrition goals. Let me give you an example. We all know that protein and nuts are keywords, and that nuts are an amazing Superfood, but, what some may not know is that nuts are also high in protein and fat content. This makes nuts difficult for your body to fully digest and if the fats and protein do not break down in the correct way, your immune system can be triggered to create antibodies that work to inflame the body’s sebaceous glands and cause pimples!
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.
In this post I am discussing how I will tie the various articles on this site together. When I say together I mean how I used or considered the various supplements, exercise regimens, alternative medicine techniques etc. in my lifestyle regimen. To discuss this I will have to use a timeline of my life beginning in the late 1980’s when I was in my 30’s.
Personal preference has dictated nutritional choices throughout contemporary history. Ever since people gained access to enough food to move beyond subsistence nutrition, they have based their dietary decisions mainly on taste and general health trends. Yet a growing body of evidence shows there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. Our responses to different nutrients are unique, and by recognizing and monitoring this we can potentially extend our healthy life expectancy.
First, it’s important to understand that the brain is made up of many different areas of the brain, all of which are connected to each other. Each part of the brain has a certain purpose and a certain job to perform, but not every part can perform that job at all times. For example, your eyes can’t both focus on a single object at the same time. They have different roles to play in order to see an object clearly.
