Say no to High Fat, High Sugar Diets!

10 Nov

  
High fat and high sugar diets have been linked to a higher risk of acute coronary heart disease. The research shows that this risk is 50% higher in people consuming these diets, than in people consuming a plant based diet.

High fat and high sugar diets have also been linked to increased insulin which can increase risk for diabetes

The easiest way to have a healthy body is to have a healthy diet. Like Michael Pollan puts it: ‘Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.’

Eat Healthy Be Happy!

Did You Know? About GM Salmon…

27 Dec

Salmon

 

Did you know that the FDA approved genetically modified salmon for human consumption?

This fish is developed by AquaBounty an American company which in my opinion, has no respect for humans or the environment. Can you imagine the damage that can be produced if these fish get into the wild and contaminate all the other fish?

We have seen the damage that all the other GMO have caused; Obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease. Please say no to GMO, please say no to GM fish, read the labels, ask the government to label these.

 

And remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!

White Rice Consumption and Type 2 Diabetes

21 Mar

An recently published article, reports that white rice consumption significantly increases the risk for type 2 diabetes.

This is due to the high glycemic index of white rice, due to processing (where fiber and nutrients are stripped).

What can you do?

Order brown rice instead of white rice at restaurants. Limit your consumption of pastas, breads and flour. Choose brown rice and whole grains. Whole grains have fiber, which help control blood sugar.

Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!

Food and Beauty

An article published by the Journal of Skin Pharmacology and Physiology concluded that an encapsulated fruit and vegetable concentrate, helps skin be healthier and therefore age less.

The study consisted in taking a fruit and vegetable concentrate daily for 12 weeks. After the 12 weeks the subjects skin was evaluated and the results were:

  • Increase in the skin’s circulation by 39%
  • Hydration by 9%
  • Skin thickness 6%
  • Skin density 16%

You may be wondering where to get this concentrate from, no need to look for any. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables and preparing your own juices everyday will probably achieve the same results (I haven’t tested this theory, but I am pretty sure!). Always include lots of greens and a variety of different colored fruits and vegetables.

Eat healthy, be happy and as proven recently, beautiful  and young as well!
