Posted by admin on May 9, 2011
WHISTLE-BAIT waistline, sexy arms, toned legs – who wouldn’t want to have these traits of an enviable figure, especially during the daring and baring season of summer?

Women in general pursue sexy figures with a passion, leading to the allure of diet and a myriad of body-slimming secrets. The key to effective weight loss, however, is one that’s done in a healthy, natural way. While exercise largely plays a role in attaining this, a big chunk of it depends on one’s daily caloric intake. This translates to the kind of food that we eat, and what these foods can do to our body.

The best way to start getting the body that you want is to eat healthy. And this can be started with a healthy fill of cereals packed with nutritious and delicious benefits your body needs. Whole grain cereals are has soluble fiber, low in fat, and low in calories. When consumed regularly, cereals may promote a fitter and leaner body, ensuring weight loss in a really healthy way. Through this and many other ways, cereals can be a “friendly” food for every figure-conscious woman.

Because of its fiber content, cereal has more “bulk” compared to refined grains. Hence, it slows down the onset of hunger, leading to a fuller feeling throughout the day and preventing you from indulging.

Cereals have high fiber content that “sweeps” away and flushes out toxins from the body. This cleansing power of fiber from cereals keeps one’s system healthier. It also helps lower the body’s cholesterol level, and help reduce the risk of deadly heart diseases.

A bowlful of cereals offers you a lot of healthy possibilities. You can top it off with your favorite fruits like strawberries or bananas which are sources of antioxidants. Another nutritious option is apple which contains fiber and is lower in calorie, thus saving you from unhealthy sugar cravings. You can also sprinkle chopped nuts or healthy oil seeds like sunflower and flax seeds on your cereals. These contain heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. And because cereals always go with milk, you also get a bowlful of protein for muscle building and calcium need to make your bones stronger.

Slash Diabetes Risk with More Green Leafy Vegetabl…

Posted by admin on May 6, 2011
(NaturalNews) Diabetes continues to grow at a staggering rate with 1.6 million new cases being diagnosed each year in the US. The American Diabetes Association estimates that more than 25 million children and adults are either pre-diabetic or have progressed to the most devastating mature form of the disease. Emerging evidence now clearly demonstrates that this insidious disease can be prevented and controlled with a diet naturally high in green leafy vegetables.
Diabetes places a significant burden on an already dysfunctional health care system, costing in excess of $200 billion annually, and ranks as the seventh leading cause of death. The disease more than doubles the incidence of heart disease and greatly increases the risk of stroke, blindness, kidney disease and neuropathy.

Type II diabetes can be prevented and controlled with a sensible approach to diet. Since the proliferation of processed and refined foods in the American diet over the past half century and the introduction of high fructose corn syrup in the early 1970`s, diabetes cases have skyrocketed in a parallel fashion during this time.

The results of a study published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) reviewed six studies covering more than 220,000 people, concluding that one and one half servings of green leafy vegetables per day lowered the risk of Type II diabetes by 14%. This is significant because the finding provides validity to the understanding that diabetes is a disease caused by poor diet and can be improved through dietary modification.

The USDA recommends five servings of fruits and vegetables each day, and still many nutritionists would argue that this is insufficient to reap the full antioxidant and nutrient benefits from leafy greens. Less than 1 in 5 people eat the recommended number of daily servings, yet optimal protection from diabetes and other afflictions requires more than 10 servings each day. The BMJ study found a small degree of risk prevention from just one and one half servings of fruits and vegetables, but didn`t explore other equally important dietary interventions.

As diabetes is a disease precipitated by metabolic imbalance, controlling blood sugar and insulin are critical components to prevention and treatment. Following the traditional low-fat, high carbohydrate diet prescribed regularly to diabetics leads to rapid surges of glucose in the blood, perpetuating and worsening the disease. Control is achieved by eliminating all sugar and refined carbohydrates including wheat, snacks, and junk food. Read nutritional labels and pay close attention to carbohydrates, sugars, trans fats and any disguised sugar-based ingredients.

Make a slow transition to a fresh vegetable and leafy green diet by eliminating one unhealthy refined carbohydrate food choice at each meal. For breakfast, replace pancakes or waffles with a large bowl of mixed berries, and eliminate bread or pasta from your lunch and dinner meals in favor of a large green salad topped with olive oil, vinegar, lemon and spices. Not only will you find a natural low carbohydrate diet packed with fresh greens helpful in dropping excess weight, but your risk of developing diabetes will be lowered significantly.

Type 1 diabetes results from the body’s failure to produce insulin – the hormone that “unlocks” the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them. Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder, resulting from the body’s inability to make enough or properly use insulin. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes and 79 million have pre-diabetes. 1.9 million new cases were diagnosed in 2010.

A well balanced breakfast followed by fruits, lunch, tea time, dinner and milk is the wholesome distribution and will immensely help you to lose weight without dieting.   

Savour green tea: What better way to lose weight than immerse your senses into the taste of green tea. Well, the tea not just speeds up your metabolism, but also contain potent anti-oxidants that help your body lose weight.

Go for whole grains: Brown rice, barley, oats, whole wheat must make their way into your diet. They improve your lipid profile, consequently helping you in losing weight. 

Walk a mile: Losing weight is not just about eating less, but also about working out. And, if your hectic schedule doesn’t give you time to hit the gym, then make it a point to at least take a walk everyday. Twenty minutes of walking everyday can burn up to 100 calories making you lose that extra flab. So, get off that bus and take a walk. Or simply take the stairs instead of lift; this will surely earn you some rewards.
