Health Tip of the day – Addictive foods

Addictive foods cause cravings, and sometimes gas, bloating and discomfort. Observe which foods you might be addicted to, and substitute other foods or distract yourself to avoid them. It usually takes 3-5 days to completely flush addictive foods from the body to relieve cravings, making weight control significantly easier.

Health Tip of the day – Work with you body

The body is a miraculous organism, performing millions of functions non-stop using available materials, and making substitutions as necessary. The body is designed to win, and to survive. Under duress, it will shift resources from less vital functions to vital ones to sustain life. Work with the body when ill to maximize it’s efficiency rather than fighting it, and trust that all symptoms serve a purpose that can reveal the nature of imbalance in the body.

Health Tip of the day – What is trans fat?

Hydrogenated fats (trans fats) are unhealthy because they have been chemically restructured to prevent breakdown and spoilage. While this process is good for the food industry and the shelf life of foods, the body can’t break trans fats down either. The result is excess unnatural fats floating in the bloodstream clogging arteries and damaging blood vessel linings. Eliminate trans fats for a healthy cardiovascular system.

Health Tip of the day – Alcohol and supplementing

Alcohol metabolism requires and often depletes both B Vitamins and magnesium. After alcohol consumption, in addition to drinking water to rehydrate, additional B Vitamins and magnesium may help restore balance more quickly. Consider having B Vitamins and magnesium supplements available after a bender.

Health Tip of the day – Start with protein

Eat a high protein breakfast within one hour of waking to jumpstart your metabolism for the day. Skipping breakfast signals the body that food is scarce, which causes the metabolism to drop into conservation mode, and increases likelihood of increased hunger at the next meal.

Health Tip of the day – Understanding oils/fats

Butter, coconut oil, and avocado oil are all stable fats that are not damaged by the heating process. Many other oils/fats change chemically when heated, resulting in free radical damage to blood vessels when consumed. Even healthy olive oil is best served cold to avoid degradation when heated. Choose butter, coconut oil, or avocado oil when cooking to minimize risk of cardiovascular damage (free radical damage) from heat-damaged oils.
