3 Tips To Reverse Aging

When you are in your twenties, you hardly care about the prospect of aging. But as you close in on your forties and beyond, you want to look younger and feel younger. Here are three tips that will help you appear and feel a decade younger.

Flax Seeds Eat Essential Fat: For decades, the media and the masses preached how all fat was unhealthy. However, this is categorically incorrect as a plethora of academic studies has demonstrated recently. Certain fats carry an array of benefits such as maintaining the integrity of your skin. These are the essential fatty acids, and, unfortunately, our bodies are not wired to generate them by themselves. We must turn to certain foods if we want to increase our consumption of essential fatty acids. The majority of Americans typically do not consume enough of Omega-3s, a specific fatty acid. A dearth of this can lead to the drying, cracking, and wrinkling of your skin! If you want to avoid this, which I am sure you do, there are a number of foods that contain plenty of this essential fatty acid. These include wild salmon, mackerel, tuna, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, flax seeds, and more.

Eat More Frequently: The custom in many Western cultures is to have two or three big meals per day. Unfortunately, this is by no means the most efficient or healthy schedule for eating. In reality, the best eating schedule to adhere to is to consume a small, yet sufficient, meal that contains essential fats, healthy carbs, and protein every three hours. This makes it much easier for our bodies to absorb the nutrients from our meals. Furthermore, the frequency of meals, as described above, can boost your body’s metabolism.

Reduce Toxins: Toxins can wreak havoc not only on your appearance but your general health. Avoid toxins such as air pollution, alcohol, cigarette smoke, and those found in our water supply and food. It is advisable to avoid processed foods that contain chemicals, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors.

Think Your Belly Thin!

Its apparent that people can have the best fat-burning diet or exercise routine if they have enough confidence, if not then they won’t be successful. (Has this ever happened to you?)

It’s saddening that many people are walking around with the common downfall of  low self-esteem. Truthfully, it may not be rock bottom but it is low enough to keep many from enduring needed exercise routines.

The simple fact is, your confidence needs to be nourished everyday. Your confidence should be treated like your body and nourished like a temple. If you don’t nourish your body, you’ll get sick. If you don’t nourish your confidence, you become uncertain, depressed and highly incapable.

Confidence can be developed, obtained and grown – just like a muscle. You can transform how you view yourself just like you can transform your body.

The main question now is: How can one increase their confidence and break through the mental barriers that they need to transform their body in a timely manner?

Here’s where thinking your belly thin comes into play.

Rule#1 Make your confidence your top priority.

How? Well there are 7 steps to this process. Here’s step 1

1. Write down (or think about) five things you REALLY like about yourself!

Set Your Food on Fire

Josh BezoniIt is a proven fact that certain foods will fix a “mangled metabolism”. This happens once you begin to increase your calorie burning furnace instead of hurting your metabolism lets talk about how you can set those calories on fire!

Honestly, there are a lot of seriously flawed “diet point system” that claim to give you the room to eat whatever you want given the fact that you do not exceed your allotted amount of points, these systems are seriously defective

The Calorie Myth™

All calories aren’t created equal. The truth? calories from different types of food act extremely different once they get inside your body.

“Thermal Burn” VS. “Thermal Duds”

Here’s an example: Your metabolic rate increases by approximately 5% as a result to eating fatty foods. In summary, every 1,000 calorie of fat eaten, your body will burn about 50% of its own calories in order to process waht you ate. Carbs on the other hand… when you eat carbphydrates, your metabolic rate increases by a maimum of 10% (less for carbs like sugar, which is easily digested, and more for high fiber choices.) Esentially. this mieans that your body uses 100 calores to digest and utlize 1,000 calories of carbs. Get it? It’s all a numbers game.

Protein has the highest thermal burn of all foods, increasing your metanolism by up to 30%. For every 1,000 calories of protein that you eat, your body uses about 300 calories to digest and process. For every 1,000 calories of proteing that you intake you are only recieveing about 700, as a result you now have 300 free calories.

Also remember that the “Thermal Burn” of some natural foods is so high they wont even register on the calorie scale. These are what we should considere “FREE Foods” that you can practically eat non-stop without gaining an ounce. I am in no way sugesting that you eat only protein in order to fix your mangeld metabolism, however eating specific Thermal-burning meals throughout the day can be helpful.

Big news! Butter is NOT the enemy!

Big news! Butter is NOT the enemy!

Eliminating saturated fats like the butter you schmear on your multigrain toast and melt on your baked sweet potato is one of the first things that get tossed from the fridge when adopting a well-balanced, nutritional diet. Saturated fats can lead to belly fat and heart disease, so it’s obvious they need to be eliminated, right?

Wrong. It’s time to look at butter differently.

Studies have shown that there are some saturated fats, like coconut oil and organic butter from grass-fed cows, can actually reduce levels of bad cholesterol as well as stomach fat when taken in moderation. In fact, they are better at blasting flabby fat than polyunsaturated vegetable oils like soybean oil and canola oil that we often mistake as being “healthier” for us!

A 12-week study of women aged 20 to 40 were randomly split into two groups of twenty. Each group was virtually given the same instructions: follow a reduced calorie eating plan and walk 50 minutes each day. They only differed in that one group received approximately two tablespoons of coconut oil, while the other was given approximately two tablespoons of soybean oil.

Results of the study showed that the group given coconut oil had increased their good cholesterol, reduced their bad cholesterol, and had significantly reduced their stomach fat, otherwise known as their waist circumference. The soybean oil group had, essentially, the exact opposite results on their cholesterol levels and didn’t see any stomach fat loss.

Unfortunately, consumers often fall for misleading advertising which make them fear organic sources of fat and instead fill themselves with processed vegetable oils that cause inflammation in the body. They aren’t realizing that natural sources of fat like coconut oil, organic butter, and even macadamia nut oil are full of nutrition and sources of good fat and are much better for you.

So the next time you’re making a delicious stir-fry full of fresh veggies, don’t be afraid to saute them in some coconut oil for a delicious flavor full of nutrients and saturated fats that are good for you!

Where Can You Find Obesity Additives?

On average, the typical American eats 140 pounds of sugar per year, which equals 173 grams per day. That’s one tragic sugar addiction and why “Ritalin-infused” kids are running around with tons of energy, all day. Please keep in mind that sugar also triggers hunger cravings and wreaks havoc on ones blood sugar levels causing them to rise and cause damage to to the body and store fat cells in areas that you hate  – like your belly. It is important to note that during the fat storing process in the presence of insulin, the hormone glucagon— which is responsible for burning body fat—is “shut off.” These obesity additives will continue to weaken the immune system and can cause depression.

Foods for a Healthy Head of Hair

Did you know that hair is a huge indicator of the general condition of your overall health? And your blow dryer, straightening iron, and myriad of hair products aren’t the only things damaging it. Poor diet and nutritional deficiency can cause overly dry, dull, frayed and damaged hair.

By targeting specific deficiencies by incorporating balanced, healthy eating habits can improve the overall appearance, texture and condition of your hair quicker than imagined. Here are six specific foods proven to help give life back to your precious locks:

Chickpeas

These tiny little guys go great in a salad or grinded up as hummus. High in folate and zinc, chickpeas are chock-full of iron-fortified, non-animal protein, which is essential for hair growth. An added bonus? They’re full of keratins, which coat the hair and help protect it from breakage.

Chicken

Boneless, skinless chicken, that is. The high protein dish serves up a whole lot of the B Vitamins folate, B6 and B12, which are crucial for maintaining healthy hair. These vitamins produce the right amount of red blood cells to transport oxygen and other nutrients throughout the body, and without their proper delivery, your scalp and hair follicles are left weak and starved.

Beans

Full of folate and iron, legumes like lentils and kidney beans provide the necessary nutrients in producing and maintaining a healthy head of hair. Hair loss is commonly associated with iron-deficiency anemia, so a diet high in this iron-rich food will prevent loss with strengthening your tresses.

Strawberries

Josh Bezoni - StrawberryBursting with Vitamin C, which helps keep collagen healthy, strawberries are essential in maintaining your hair’s structure, preventing split ends, and strengthening strands. Even better? All it takes is 8 strawberries a day to meet your recommended daily allowance for Vitamin C.

Peanuts

Peanuts are the number one choice for a biotin rich food, which is important for hair growth and a healthy scalp. Our bodies actually produce the B Vitamin naturally, so biotin deficiencies are unlikely, but it can’t hurt to load up on biotin rich foods to boost your overall hair health.

Kale

The iron-rich food is also very high in Beta carotene, which is converted in the body into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for cell growth and replenishment, including the cells in your scalp. Deficiencies result in dull, limp hair and a dry, itchy scalp. Additionally, Vitamin A is responsible for the production of sebum, an oily substance that is produced by hair follicles, essentially nature’s own conditioner.

Why is Fiber Important?

This is where we discuss how toxic waste can help get rid of your belly fat. What I mean by “toxic waste” is, well… poop that has built up on your digestive tract.

(Hence the toilet bowl reference.)

Toilet

In all honestly, when your digestive system is clogged and polluted with waste, you can’t efficiently absorb the healthy proteins, and essential nutrients that your body needs to be healthy and to burn fat at an accelerated rate. Also, when your not receiving an adequate amount of nutrients, your mind to tell your stomach to EAT MORE by causing uncontrollable cravings. This is a problem.

Your system needs to be clean in order to fight hunger. You do this in 3 ways…the first is to eat more fiber.

According to the American Heart Association, 50% of Americans aren’t getting nearly enough fiber from their daily diet. This low fiber intake sets off a major digestive “backup”, yes… not enough pooping.

This also dramatically increases one’s risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

A Few Quick Tips

“I’ve got a date with Ben & Jerry tonight.”

It’s all something we’ve said, heard, or imagined at one point or another. What we’re really saying is, “I’m eating my feelings tonight, no holds barred.” Forget cheat days and treats, emotional eating can completely derail any diet, making you feel like all your health-conscious decisions have been wiped away.

What is emotional eating, after we push away all those candy wrappers and empty chip bags? Stress. When life seems unmanageable, we get stressed, feel crappy, eat crappy food, feel better, and then feel crappy again. It’s sort of human nature.

We all know stress isn’t going anywhere, and emotional eating is by no means a stop on the path to a fitter, healthier lifestyle. If you weren’t already aware, stress is a major contributor to spot-specific belly fat. Yuck! So, how we manage stress is essential to keeping away those crappy feelings and flabby bodies, by choosing either a “negative” or “positive” way to cope with that stress.

Here’s the deal: if you’re not actively searching, planning, and implementing said plan to positively manage your stress, it’s almost guaranteed that you will naturally choose a negative coping mechanism, like eating the entire pizza pie instead of just a slice. Again, it’s human nature. But don’t fear! Positive coping mechanisms are all around us!

Move Around!

Josh Bezoni - Move AroundRunning, jogging, or going for a walk gives you the opportunity to tune-out of life’s realities and just think about whatever comes to mind. If you’ve got a lot on your mind, even better! You won’t focus on how long you’ve been running for, or how much longer you have to go, and instead you’ll surprise yourself with how much activity you’re getting done. Additionally, you’re flooding your cerebellum with those feel good endorphins, which are not only great for your body, but also relieves stress!

If you’re just not up to exercising, another alternative would be to hop in your car (or on public transit if you’re not “vehically equipped”) and cruise till your mind is clear and ready to tackle life.

Pump up the jams!

Music is known to be a big factor in relieving stress, whether it’s listening to it or making it, it soothes the soul. You know what’s even better than listening to music? Listening to music AND running, jogging, walking, or driving! Bye-bye stress. Hello air-guitar solos at the next red light.

If you want to take away the power that emotional eating has over your healthy lifestyle (who doesn’t?!) you HAVE to consciously and actively seek out positive coping mechanisms. If you don’t, those unhealthy behaviors become habits that are hard to break, which quickly turns into more pounds added to the scale.
