HOW TO EAT

The Following principles and recommendations should be the basis of a healthy diet: 1 ) Eat a variety of foods. Eating the same foods day after day may cause allergies to develop. Also, eating the same foods will cause “taste fatigue” and encourage overeating. Eating a variety of foods will promote a balance of nutrition. Each food provides specific amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, but no single food provides all of what you need. Rotate your food.
2) Reduce or eliminate wheat. Wheat, a relatively recent agricultural innovation, is eaten in enormous qualities in Western countries. This has led to wheat sensitivity. Particularly to gluten, a major protein component of wheat. Many people have resolved long-standing digestive problems by going off wheat. Gluten is a strong endorphin trigger. Meaning, once you begin eating foods containing gluten, you will keep eating them.
3) Eat your vegetables. Fresh. Organic vegetables contain loads of valuable nutrients and fiber, and are low on the glycemic index. Be careful not to over-cook. Overcooking destroys vitamins, phytochemicals, and other nutrients. Light steaming is the ideal way to cook.
4) Eat colorful food. By eating a variety of naturally colored vegetables, you obtain a broad spectrum of vital nutrients.
5) Drink freshly squeezed vegetable juice. This is just about the healthiest thing you can drink: putting fresh, organic, low-starch vegetables through a juicer. These drinks are high in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
6) Drink tea. Tea is low in acidity and caffeine (1/3-1/4 that of coffee). A study showed that drinking tea reduced the rates of heart attack by 44%. This applies to black and green tea, not herbal tea.
7) Go easy on alcohol. The body processes it like a carb: loads of high-glycemic calories. The rest of the dangers are well known.
8) Eat breakfast and eat frequently. Don’t skip breakfast. People who do consume 44% more calories during the day than those who eat breakfast. Five small meals are far superior than three big ones. Keeps blood sugar balanced, consume less overall calories.
9) Avoid unhealthy snacks. Typical snack foods are high in fats and sugar which trigger the appetite center, leading to cravings and continuous eating.
10) Plan ahead. Take healthy snacks with you during the day. Take your own sweeter with you (naturlose, stevia).
11 ) Take supplements. You can’t get all the vitamins and minerals you need by eating processed food made from soil depleted of its nutrients. Mega-doses are required.
12) Everything in moderation. Don’t get discouraged if you slip on your diet. Stand up, brush yourself off, and continue.
13) Be aware: sugar is everywhere. Look out for hidden forma of sugar: fructose, sucrose, glucose, maltose, matodextrin, honey, molasses, maple syrup, sucanat, amasake, and high fructose corn syrup.

YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU EAT, YOU ARE WHAT YOU DIGEST

The many nutrients in your food can only help you if they are digested properly. The human digestive process breaks down foodstuffs into their constituent molecular parts for delivery to their ultimate destination: the cells. While the digestive process is efficient, decades of suboptimal digestion underlie many discomforts and the progression of long-term disease. One study revealed that 70% of American adults suffer from gastrointestinal symptoms resulting from maldigestion, malabsorption, or unhealthy bacteria in the digestive tract…. in addition to digestive illnesses.
While there are taste buds and olfactory sensors in the mouth and nose, after food leaves the mouth, the process is on autopilot. Adopting a healthy diet is the most important thing you can do to maintain and restore the delicate balance of your digestive processes. There are seven steps in the digestive process:
1 ) Digestion begins in the mouth, where chewing breaks down food into manageably small particles. Swallowing food before it’s been adequate broken down leads to inadequate digestion and absorption.
2) Food travels through the esophagus, where contractions send it to the stomach.
3) The gastric mucosal cells lining the stomach secrete gastric juice – mostly acidic -that dissolves food into nearly liquid form (chime). Gastric juices also contain digestive enzymes that begin to break down proteins into amino acids.
4) After about three hours in the stomach, the chime enters the small intestines. The small intestines has three regions: the duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum.
Pancreatic enzymes break down proteins and fats. About 1/3 of all Americans lack adequate lactase, the enzyme needed to digest mil sugar. This causes lactose intolerance.
5) Most absorption takes place in the jejunum. Intestinal villas further the absorption process.
6) Remaining nutrients are digested by less-developed villa in the ileum.
7) Digestion is essentially complete by the time the chime passes from the small to the large intestine. The large intestine, also known as the colon or bowel, receives about a pint of chime a day from the ileum. The chime is moved by contractions similar to those in the small intestines. The main digestive process that occurs in the colon is the result of intestinal bacteria. The bacteria change the chime into a form that is suitable for elimination as feces.
The many nutrients in your food can only help you if they are digested properly. From eating to absorption, your food follows a long, intricate, and hazardous path. The human digestive process, which takes place throughout the alimentary canal—stretching from the mouth to the anus—acts like an elaborate inventory control system. It breaks down foodstuffs into their constituent molecular parts for delivery to their ultimate destination: your trillions of cells, where they are reassembled into the little machines and energy sources that animate your life.

THE SIX NEWEST FAT-BURNING INGREDIENTS

Since ephedra was taken off the market, people have been looking for a worthy fat-burning replacement. Well, here are the newest, cutting edge supplements.
1 ) Aspidosperma quebracho-bianco (AQB). This is a South American evergreen tree species. The bark contains several alkaloids that act as central-nervous system stimulators that can help you get lean. Dosage: 50-250 mgs. of AQB extract standardized for .3% alkaloids taken twice daily.
2) Sesamin. This is a lignan from sesame oil. The active ingredient turns on genes that increase fat oxidation and decrease fat storage. Dosage: 500-1000 mg. of sesamin 2-3 times a day with food.
3) Hops Extract. New research reports that isomerized hops extract can decrease body fat by inhibiting the absorption of fat by the intestines. Secondly, it activates genes involved in fat oxidation to ramp up fat burning. Thirdly, it decreases the activity of genes that control storage of body fat. Dosage: 200-400 mg. of hops extract 1-3 times a day.
4) Oleoylethanol-Amide (OEA). When you eat a meal, the production of OEA increases and woks to ramp up fat-burning and decrease fat storage. Users say it decreases hunger. When you take extra OEA, you essentially trick your body into thinking you’ve already eaten. OEA is a non-stimulating appetite suppressant and fat burner. Dosage: 25-50 mg of OEA twice a day with food.
5) Tetradecylthioacetci acid (TTA). TTA is a specialized fatty acid that regulates the burning and storage of dietary fats. TTA helps decrease LDL and total cholesterol levels and boosts insulin sensitivity. Dosage: 1000 mg. of TTA twice daily.
6) Inula Racemosa. This is an herb that grows in the Himalayas. Their roots contain lactones that give it medicinal properties. The most important of these is alantolactone, which enhances insulin sensitivity; meaning you secrete less insulin after eating and less of the meal is stored as dietary fat. Dosage: as per label on Hydroxycut Hardcore.
