Obesity in America ...is it the diet?
Does the yeast in your system make your choices or do you?
Do you think it is the serving size?
- Obesity in America ...is it the serving size
Back when I was growing up, I can still hear the words ringing in my ears from my dad ...take as much as you want ...but eat as much as you take. And from my mom these famous words that Im sure a lot of...
- Aloe Vera the Heart and Diet
Again, knowing that heart disease is 90% preventable in this country, or any country for that matter, simply with a few "lifestyle" changes such as a proper diet, reducing STRESS, eliminating the toxins, a...
of the questions concerning the "obesity " problem in this country is
...could it be caused by the typical western diet that we’ve grown
Some say we went wrong by...
...following the American Medical Associations
recommendation to follow a low fat diet. The only problem with a low
fat diet ...is that we tend to consume more carbohydrates to fill the
gap and according to all the data on diet ...Americans are definitely
filling up on more carbohydrates like pasta, potatoes, bread and all
those quick “sugar shack snacks” in between the meals ...and lets don’t
forget all those processed foods and fast food stops.
This type of eating has low fiber content and is absorbed into the blood stream much quicker than the high fiber foods. These low fiber foods have a much higher glycemic index, which prompts a quick rise in glucose which in turn triggers a spike in insulin production ...which is the so called storing hormone which removes the glucose out of the blood stream and stores it in the fat cells.
Because the jury is still out on what diet is best...
...at Healthy Systems
(.com) we still believe in moderation of each of the food groups.
However, we have to keep in mind the size of the servings. That’s
where we always have to use some common sense when we eat. It’s simply
a matter of eating fewer calories, because as the experts all agree
...1600 calories a day for the average female and 2200 calories for the
average male is recommended.
As the saying goes...
...a calorie is a calorie, is a calorie, holds true.
It’s calories in and calories out. It does not matter if the calorie
comes from fat, carbohydrates or protein. There are 3500 calories in a
pound. If you consume more calories than you body can burn off as
energy ...weight will be gained. If you burn off more calories than
you consume ...weight will be lost.
So, you can safely say...
...that weight gain and the obesity problem can
definitely be associated and compared to the type of diet eaten and add
to that, the number of calories consumed with each meal. It’s your
choice and it really is mathematics.
Some say that it’s not their fault. Some say that they are victims. Some say that they’re the innocent victims of the food industry. Some say they are all victims of the food industry because of the food that is produced. Really now...to this we say that’s a cop out! Because in this day and age with all the free information out there about food, meals, diet, exercise and calorie intake ...we say, look in the mirror and begin by taking your weight and your health into your own hands. It’s up to you to make the right choices by taking full responsibility for what you eat, how much you eat and to make sure you’re not consuming excess calories when you eat your meals.
This all may sound like pretty tough talk, but lets face facts...
body and your health that we’re talking about here and your need to
take full responsibility for what you put into your body.
When you over eat ...you know it! When you eat too much candy and cake ...you know it! When you don’t exercise enough, you know it! When you try and justify your weight problem ...you know why!
It's a battle out there everyday ...
...why not try to get in the routine of
consuming 500 less calories a day and at the end of every week you
could lose one pound. 500 X 7 days = 3500 calories...Give it a try
...it works. Remember, its mathematics........and plenty of will power!
It comes down to...how bad do you want it?
Drink plenty of clean fresh filtered water ...with 2-4 ounces of the “best tasting aloe" vera every day ...know your supplier!
