Healthy Foods You Aren't Eating | Yahoo! Health

 Here is some good information on some "food swaps" that can be made. What they are are healthy food choices to replace the less than healthy alternatives.

9 Spices With Super Healing Powers | Yahoo! Health

 This is a good article outlining some really healthy spices that can help your body heal. People do not really know a lot about these things these days. Most people eat from some fast food place and don't even know how to cook anymore. There is a reason that these spices are used in cooking for so long and it is not just to flavor the food. Check it out.

Is sugar toxic???

There is a debate going on about weather sugar is toxic. Well this is the way that I see it. There are a lot of food products these days that have a lot of sugar in them. When I say a lot I mean WAY TO MUCH!!! You can simply look at the label and see how many grams of sugar there are in a given product you want to eat. I do not care weather it is fructose, sucrose or whatever ose it is sugar. Our bodies are not designed to process vast quantities of sugar like a humming bird. If you don't believe me eat something that contains a lot of sugar and then eat a piece of fruit. The fruit will taste bland or even bitter. Do you know why? It is because your sense of taste has been so over whelmed by all the sugar in the processed product you just consumed. Another problem with eating all this sugar is insulin. Not only can it cause you to become diabetic but it will also cause you to age rapidly. When your body released insulin in vast quantities it causes oxidation of your cells during the insulin/sugar uptake process. There are several studies that have shown this to happen. When your cells oxidize they are being damaged. Just cut an apple and watch it turn brown. That is oxidation in real time. So to answer the question is sugar toxic? I would say only in large quantities and over a long period of time. The sugar itself is not the toxin it is the way people over indulge and their excess that cause the bad side effects. Then again if you are forced to drink a bathtub of water I think it would probably kill you to.

Focus on positive for success !!

So many people these days are focused on the negative why not focus on the positive. I realize that there is a lot of nasty things around the world right now that are stressful but why focus on that. There was recently an article about the Mr. Universe that turned 100 years old. One of the main things he did was to focus on the positive in life. As we already know stress causes weight gain, depression and probably 10,000 more symptoms. So take some time out of each day and focus on the positive it will keep you going through life and also keep you motivated to achieve your goals.

Why everyone on earth should be juicing fruit and vegetables!!

I have been using my juicer on and off for about eight years now. I have however recently begun to use it a lot more due to the fact of the health benefits. When I first bought it I thought well this guy Jack is really healthy and in good shape compared to all of these other people who make it to his age. So naturally I thought I should give what he is doing a try. Now I am even more motivated because of all of the other information that has come froward in recent years. I have to say since using it on a regular basis my energy levels have gone up and I have seen an decrease in my recovery time from training. I have a couple of juice formulas on my page here check them out and happy juicing.

Want to look and feel good and healthy Stay Active!!!

There are a lot of people today that complain of several types of health problems. The problem is not with the people it is simply the fact that people are way less active than they should be and eat more processed nasty food. Instead of taking the elevator take the stairs. If you don't believe me go to a large store and see what happens when you go to park your car. There will be a lot of people circling around waiting for that space located right next to the isle that there product is in. If you really want to improve your quality of life start using your body the way it was intended to be used. If we were intended to have some sort of mechanical device to go everywhere we would be born with one huh? Here is a wild idea eat right if you have a sedentary job then work out. If you want information on work out and nutrition you have come to the right place. Have a blast and search my blog it is loaded with useful information. You can also enter your email for updates and new posts. Good luck and happy healthy future!!

Cat sized rats? How about cow sized humans? Time to hit the gym!!!

I was reading the news online today and I saw how much attention was being given to these giant rats in the keys. They are a exotic breed of rat that was released in the Florida keys. So we set a few traps and lest some dogs go on them and we will be fine. What are we going to do about all the cow sized humans that are around? Lets get real for just one minute here. Obesity is literally killing our country as I write this article. There are more and more fast food addicted obese people being born every minute. We are literally eating our self's to death as a nation. We already have problems taking care of the baby boomer generation. What are we going to do with this generation of obese lazy people? Do your self your country and the human race a favor(including yourself) and stay healthy. Lets be honest I do not expect my lack of prep and planning to be someones problem. It's my problem. So what is their excuse?

100 Year old Mr. Universe!!!

This man in India has become 100yrs old. He looks like somebody from the united states that is in their 60's or 70's. Manohar Aich is his name and he credits his lifestyle of bodybuilding, eating healthy and focusing on happiness for his longevity. This guy is amazing. He was Mr. Universe in 1952 and says he loved bodybuilding and the respect he earned in the sport. I am thinking that this guy is probably also a natural athlete (No Steroids). If you don't think that diet and lifestyle matter in how long you live and the quality of your life. Just look at Manohar. You can see pictures of him attached to this yahoo article. http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/mr-universe-1952-turns-100-credits-healthy-lifestyle-140401391--abc-news.html I wonder how many prescriptions he has to take every day? Probably none Hmmm I wonder why? I wish him the best of luck and I hope people around the world will take notice of this man and his accomplishments.

The holistic/ processed diet dilemma

We have a serious problem in most developed countries in our world. The problem is what I have come to call the holistic dilemma. Time and time again it has been shown that a holistic diet rich in fruit and vegetables and lean good protein sources is the best way to go. But what do most Americans and other people living in developed countries do? We eat the most processed garbage our bodies can handle. Foods loaded with fat and empty calories. Then we sit and wonder why are there so many obese and sick people running around? Why are people getting sick at alarming rates? I have always said garbage in garbage out. I am not even considering how inactive these people have become. This issue just aggravates everything else I have already mentioned. If you don't believe me then ask yourself why so many older people that are healthy tote the benefits of fresh juice like Jack La lane and people of that sort? They know and feel the benefits of consuming nutrient dense holistic food. This does not mean that you can never have a hamburger ever again or eat anything processed. All this means is that you should not eat these things as your main source of nutrients. In other words you should not let processed, fatty, nasty food be the norm for your diet. Even if you are not obese yet why bother to eat that way with all the health risks? I know that I want a good quality of life and will continue to eat holistically. I also encourage everyone else to do the same. Go get a juicer and start eating more fruits and vegetables. Your body will thank you.

Give your body enough rest and nutrition and help make things easier!!!

I look around constantly and see all these people in an incessant rush to go and get everywhere yesterday. The funny thing is that people seem to want to have everything on time and earlier but do not want to give their bodies adequate rest or nutrition to achieve this. This is like demanding top performance out of your car with flat tires a dirty air filter and oil in it that hasn't been changed since you bought it. If that last comment sounds loony than so should pushing yourself to extremes and not prepping for this.So if you want peak performance start treating your body like you do. Get enough rest and feed yourself good whole food. Also check the training news regularly for good quality info.

Eat nutrient dense food even if you are "dieting" you will get better results.

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to dieting. One diet says to stop eating one of a certain kind of foods. Another type of diet tells you to stop eating a certain type of nutrient. All these diets have a sole thing in common. Ant time you deplete your diet to the point when you are depriving your body of something it needs you will feel it. When I say you will feel it that does not always mean the same way. If you are an energetic person you may become lethargic and tired. If you are a strong person you will start to get weaker. These are all signs that your body is deprived and it is crashing. Do you have to reduce your caloric intake yes probably. But here is the problem you are eating empty calories. Lots of processed foods and very little holistic foods. These processed foods fill you up but you are not satisfying your bodies need for the micro nutrients that it needs. So you reduce your empty calories even further. Now you are still eating but you are starving to death. Here is your solution start eating the "super foods" nutrient dense foods not empty ones. What I mean is get away from the processed garbage and eat holistic food fruits, vegetables and meats. If you want to take it a step further buy a juicer and start juicing your fruits and veggies. You will satisfy your body, reduce your caloric intake and stay healthy all at the same time. This does not mean you cannot eat processed food. Just make it the minority in your diet. Good luck eat well and train hard until next time!!!

Day light savings time, time to spring forward!! With your training.

It is that time again. We have to change our clocks to spring forward by one hour. I think this can also be a good thing though. Since we have to do this silly thing anyway. Here is one big colossal way that it can help you. You should always do your cardio in the morning before breakfast to optimize fat burning. What you don't know that?! If you would follow the training news regularly you would know that!! Anyway use the time shift to your advantage do some cardio. Since you are already messing with your sleep just tweak it a little more to add time to do cardio. All you really need are 15- 20 minutes and you are right where you need to be. Change your schedule and you will be consistent. So good luck and happy fat burning!!!

$5 a gallon gas time to start walking and biking huh?!

With there being a lot of talk about the gas going up to five dollars a gallon I think this is ridiculous. I think people should take to the streets on there bikes and also buy gas and alternative fuel vehicles. In this day and age I think it is really ignorant for people to just accept the status quo. I have made a decision for one and I will purchase an electric vehicle as my next choice. I encourage people everywhere to start opening their minds and getting away from this foreign oil and dependency on gas. If you bike to your work only a couple of times a week imagine how much better you will feel and how much money you will save. So like I said start using those bikes and think of buying electric or sustainable fuel vehicles. After all with their being a "obesity" problem in America and all maybe we should all use our bodies a little more often. In that way I think all of this gas nonsense is a good thing.

Juice in the evening to avoid getting fat!!

This is the second formula of juice that I promised everybody. This is my special night time recipe. The difference between the morning one and this one is that their is less fruit and more veggies in this one to help you stay leaner. I will not put exact amounts because I do not know how much you are comfortable making at a time. So here are the ingredients:

Green apples
pineapple
Kale or chard
broccoli
Beets
Ginger(does not take much)
cucumber or celery

It is that simple just make the desired amount and you have a good healthy evening food source. You can also add protein powder to make it complete.

Betty White can still rock so can you!!

I love all these older folks who still have a good spark of life in them. This is how life should be. I looked at the Yahoo news and saw that Betty White and Axl Rose got together to help a zoo. Only in America will you see an older lady rocking and rolling. I think this is awesome. We should enjoy every bit of our life. All you you young fat and "sick" people should be inspired by people like Betty White and Jack Lalanne. These people made it into their "golden" years. Which don't seem too golden for a lot of older people by the way. And they still have vitality and enjoy their life's. My hat is off to people like this they appreciate life and have taken good care of themselves and it shows.

The holistc approach to dieting down Awesome!!!

Allot of people diet down for different reasons. You might be doing it for a bodybuilding show or maybe you just want to lose some extra weight. Either way as with many things there is a healthy way and unhealthy to do it. I have recently stumbled on to a good plan that has helped me diet down and lean out and it is as healthy as possible. I call it the holistic approach to leaning out. I had dieted using plain food and diet everything in the past and yeah it worked but I felt tired weak and just plain BLAH. This method is awesome you use two different juice formulas that I have put together and only eat whole natural food. Vegetables, meat and fruit. One of the juice formulas is for early in the day and the other one is for later. The good part is that you can consume protein from lean sources. I am loving it so far.

Change things up to spice up your training program.

Much like other people who are advanced in their training regiments I was having trouble keeping motivated not too long ago. I just did not seem motivated to train and it was harder and harder for me to get in the gym and train. I was thinking what is wrong with me? I have been training my whole adult life and now I am not motivated to do what I love to do. I had a kind of eureka moment I have always been doing traditional gym type exercises. So no matter how I would change or do something different it was getting stale. I started incorporating unconventional movements and exercises 2-3 times a week. Not only did my body respond but my mind did to. I will do an MMA style workout for endurance twice a week. This is a very good replacement for cardio boredom by the way. Then a friend of mine has introduced me to the strong man lifts with the yolk, logs and strongman dumbbells. That is one hell of a workout by the way. Anyway my point in saying all this is variety is the spice of life even in the gym. If you are getting stuck in a rut and bored experiment a little.

Pepper sprayed at Disney land? C'mon people find a healthy way to vent.

I looked at the news this morning and I see some fat guy getting pepper sprayed by some poor Disney land security guard that had to protect the guests. Really lets get drunk and take our petty little frustrations out on some poor people at Disneyland. Can you say stress management? Why don't you put down the wings and the pizza and get to the gym? You will get healthier while reducing stress. The funny thing about it is that he is not the only person that has this problem there are several people that are like this. If you don't believe me look at all the road rage when you drive. If there were more people there in better shape this guy would have been taken care of in a second. Heck he might have been better at managing his own stress and not gone off if he just took better care of himself. So keep up the exercise reduce stress and have fun when you are supposed to have fun.

Bad Sleep Linked to Alzheimer's - ABC News

This is interesting. You need rest especially when you are training and pushing your body. This just proves how important rest really is to keeping you healthy. I always recommend at least eight hours of sleep and maybe even a nap with that amount of sleep. Another good thing to do is to take a supplement like ZMA. You can look it up and find it in the blog. It helps you sleep and recover naturally. Melatonin is also good to help reset your sleep schedule if you travel. you take it 30 min before bed and it will reset your sleeping habits to help kill jet lag and things like that. Anyway enough ranting check out the article. Bad Sleep Linked to Alzheimer's - ABC News

Do your cardio outside added benifit!!!

I know we live in a technological society that is all about machines, Technology and gadgets but sometimes older is better. For instance if you run out side vs. running on a treadmill it is harder. Do you know why? The reason is because you are moving %100 of you weight with your muscles. If you use a treadmill the ground is moving under your feet which is helping you to move forward. I am not saying to abandon your cardio(aerobic exercise) if you like to use machines. All I am saying is that change is good and you will get a better workout by running outside at least every once and a while. Plus you get all the other benefits of running outside like the sun and fresh air. So I would encourage everyone to get outside and take advantage. Get the most out of your aerobic exercise.

Diet pills can kill. You won't have to worry about your weight if you are dead!!!

There are pills for everything and most of them will kill you or permanently mess you up while delivering the "desired" effect. Now they are saying some drug called mediator killed 1,300 people in Europe. If people would just start being more active and incorporate an exercise plan into there life combined with a good whole food based diet they would not have to worry. Not to mention the fact that this action would make them healthier and have a better quality of life. But no lets get doped up and addicted to prescription pills right. Here is a link to the article:

Be like the oldest thing on earth Eat and live and train for a long good life!!

The news has recently announced that the oldest living thing in the world is a patch of seaweed of the Mediterranean sea. Check it out. That seaweed has one big good thing going for it. It is 10 miles long by the way. It follows the K.I.S.S method.Not the big hair band but it keeps it simple stupid! That's what would help so many people in their day to day life if they could just keep it simple. It makes things so much easier and reduces stress.

Superbowl, Chicken wings and beer? Proceed with caution!!

Alright I know that a lot of people are going to meet with friends and take in the Superbowl this weekend. Here is the thing. It is always a celebration and there are always loads of junk to consume. So should you not celebrate? Of course not but a better method of handling this would be to treat it like a cheat meal for you. You know that one time during the week when you go and treat yourself to whatever you want to eat. Make that your Superbowl party day. If you are more dedicated to to your program and do not want to stray off of your program then you can turn to some healthier alternatives. Like instead of making buffalo wings make buffalo chicken breast. Drink light beer instead of regular and have some party trays with veggies. That would be a good way to keep up the fight. Just because you want to take part in the festivities does not mean you have to throw away your hard work.

Want to get rid of some stress? Work out!!!

Every day I go to work and every day I see people "stressed". They are all possessed and concerned about so many little things in their lives that it can lead to depression and lack of activity. One good way to get rid of stress is to exercise. It will help to clear your mind and make you relax and see things for they are. We are becoming more in active as a society every year. Then we rely on stimulants to give us "energy". If your body was in good shape you would not have to rely on stimulants like caffeine and nicotine to keep you going. Your metabolism would already be in high gear. As much time as people dedicate to other things through out there week exercise should be part of your focus. Get up, get out and enjoy your life. Do not live to work. Work to live.
