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.

The Best Snack for Satisfying Cravings

AlmondsWe have all been there. It’s 3:30 in the afternoon, and you’ve long since forgotten about what you ate for lunch. You’re feeling a little lethargic, your stomach is starting to grumble, and you want to reach for something quick to satisfy your craving and get you through to the end of the work day.

Everyone gets cravings, and every now and then, we all give into them. You’re human! I’m not here to guilt trip you. But one of the best defenses again succumbing to your daydreams of chocolate chip cookies and oily potato chips is to have a few smarter (i.e. healthier) snacks at your disposal.

One of my favorite, guilt-free snack foods is inexpensive, requires no prep, and is easy to take on the go. So what’s this amazing mystery food?

Almonds!

Whether it’s the slight grumble of your tummy or just because you’re in need of something salty, almonds are a great go-to snack. Unfortunately, our cravings often leave us reaching for the closest bag of potato chips or pretzels, which aren’t exactly helping you achieve your weight loss goals. They’re also not going to fill you up for very long, and you’ll likely end up snacking on something else before the day is through.

Almonds are loaded with healthy fats and protein that will satisfy your hunger pangs, keep you feeling full for hours, and help you scratch that salty craving itch, without undoing all the hard work you’ve been putting into your diet and exercise routine lately.

Pro tip: separate out your servings ahead of time, so you have a pre-portioned snacks ready to go. While almonds are great, it’s easy to overeat any food you’re grabbing straight out of the container. Research has shown that people will eat two to three times more of a food when eating out of the container compared to eating pre-portioned food out of a bowl or ziplock bag.

At the beginning of the week, separate out 5 bags of almonds for yourself and bring one with you each day. You’ll feel better knowing you have a snack at your disposal that you don’t need to feel guilty about digging into.

One ounce is the perfect amount to set aside for a great fat-burning snack that will satisfy your cravings while holding you over until your next real meal.

Is Whey Protein All It’s Cracked Up to Be?

Whey Protein Shake

One of the most popular and widely used nutritional supplements on the market is whey protein. But don’t let its popularity fool you. Whey protein has it’s limitations and drawbacks. Let me explain.

Whey protein, both as a standalone supplement and source of protein, has major shortcomings when it comes to protein absorption and insulin management.

Protein Absorption

The International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism published a report in 2006 that found whey protein isolate to absorb into the body at a rate of about 8g/hour. The problem is, the window of opportunity for whey protein to be absorbed during the digestive process is approximately 1.5 hours, so regardless of how much whey protein you consume in your post workout shake, your body will only be able to absorb approximately 12 – 20g of it.

In short, if you drink a whey protein shake with 40g of whey, more than half of that protein is never absorbed by your body (basically, it just gets excreted.) Whey protein simply passes through the system too rapidly to be adequately absorbed at high doses.

Insulin Management

A 2012 study published in Nutrition & Metabolism found that the specific amino acids in whey protein stimulate beta cells to secrete high levels of insulin. How hight? More than a similar amount of carbohydrate from white bread. Whenever you find a story that is comparing part of your diet to white bread, you know it’s time to pay attention.

Too much insulin reduces your body’s ability to burn fat. so it’s important to choose foods that elicit a lower insulin response when on a weight loss plan. In other words: whey protein is not as good as other, lower insulin producing, forms of protein such as those found in real animals or slower digesting protein blends.

Conclusion

You might be left wondering if it’s possible to get the positive benefits of whey without the downsides of low absorption and high insulin response. The answer is, yes: if you combine whey with other medium-speed and slow-digesting proteins such as milk protein and micellar casein.

Combining you whey with other proteins will reduce the overall insulin response from the whey while ensuring optimal absorption due to their slower digestion rates.

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.

Everyone’s Talking About Chia Seeds

Chia seeds, in case you haven’t been to a health food store in a while, are tiny white and black seeds that come from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, and everyone has been talking about them as an amazing weight loss aid. Let’s take a closer look.

Josh Bezoni - Chia Seeds“Chia” actually means strength, and it is thought that Mayan and Aztec cultures used these seeds for energy. They are native to Mexico and Guatemala, and most people who are old enough remember them from the 1980’s when “Chia Pets” were all the rage (as much as Chia Pets can be a rage.)

They are in fact filled with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. They’re unprocessed, whole-grains, and one ounce contains about 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates, and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals. Not bad.

The have a mild, nutty flavor, and they’re commonly add to cereal, sauces, rice dishes, and yogurt. They are unique, in that when they are mixed into liquids, they create a gel like substance, an important part of this whole weight loss craze.

Because chia seeds soak up liquid when immersed, it has been thought that when you consume them, they expand in your stomach, making you feel full faster, eat less, and ultimately lose weight. But so far no studies have been able to back up this phenomenon.

In a study by Appalachian State University in North Carolina, researcher David Nieman, DrPH said that “Over a 12-week period, we did not see a change in appetite or weight loss… Our study showed no reduction in body weight, body fat and no improvement in traditional cardiovascular markers from 50 grams of chia per day.”

Another study found similar results. “The evidence is limited on chia, and only two clinical trials examined heart health and body weight,” explains researcher Catherine Ulbricht, PharmD. “One showed some beneficial heart effect, but neither showed any effect on weight loss.”

I have no problem with chia seeds and believe they are a nutritious food to add to one’s diet, but there are some websites out there claiming that chia seeds will cure every ailment from wrinkles to cancer, and that’s simply not true, or at least in no way scientifically proven.

In conclusion, these little seeds may not cure you of all physical and emotional maladies, but they are very nutritious, and I encourage you to try them. If you want to experiment with a few chia seed recipes made with raw ingredients at home, feel free to browse through some of these recipes.

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.

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.
