Underweight and Overweight – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

Your normal weight is dependent upon three factors: height, age and skeletal structure. Naturally the weight of the individual should alter through the several stages of life. And, quite as naturally, the amount and kind of food needed to maintain the proper weight will also vary, dependent upon the person’s occupation and general activity.

To say that overweight is the result of overeating is like saying that a fire is the result of a match. Who struck the match? What caused the overeating? Overeating is not a cause but rather a result. Have you noticed how your eating habits vary when you are occupied and when you are not occupied: when you are lonely and when you are not; when you are tense and when you are relaxed? The busy, satisfied and relaxed people of the world are rarely overweight. The idle, lonely and nervous people frequently are.

When you are not occupied and feel that you should be, you eat to excuse your idleness. (“I’ll do it after supper – after I have a sandwich – as soon as I’m through eating – one must eat, you know.”)

When you are lonely, you eat to replace the satisfaction of friendship. When you are nervous, you eat to forget the cause of that tension or despair. Here again is proof of the inseparability of mind and body.

The unfortunate result of unhappiness is not only overeating, but consuming worthless, fattening foods. The act of replacing some need of mind or soul with body food is a form of blackmail. You are “buying off” the mind through ransom paid the body. Naturally this ransom must be a luxurious one. That is why the unhappy people of the world dote on chocolates, ice-cream, rich cakes and the like. And here a ridiculous contradiction frequently takes place. The unhappy soul stuffs him or herself with appetite-murderers and frequently neglects the essential foods for health. Thus, contradictory as it may appear, many people are a stone and a half and two stone overweight and yet anaemic, undernourished, suffering the ravages of malnutrition! Continue reading »

A Complete Guide To Healthy Eating!

[Read: Natural Height Increasing MethodsGrow Taller 4 Idiots]

Are you attempting to get life from dead foods?

In recent years more people have come to realize the importance of selecting the foods that will most benefit their health. This interest in the life-giving values of food is good and marks here a great advance in human welfare.

EAT ALL FOODS AS CLOSE TO THEIR NATURAL STATE AS POSSIBLE

Most food is overcooked. What is more, many people have the habit of peeling vegetables, potatoes in particular. They should never be peeled, for the most valuable element lie directly under or in the skin.

DON’T USE SODA TO ADD “GREEN” TO VEGETABLES

There are two dangers here. Soda destroys the vitamin content of food, and it reacts on aluminium to produce poisonous substances which enter your blood stream.

GET YOUR VITAMINS AND MINERALS NATURALLY. DON’T RELY ON “ENRICHED” AND “VITAMINIZED” PRODUCTS.

Nature has provided an abundant supply of vitamins and minerals in foods in their raw state. If you have not destroyed them by peeling or overcooking, you will receive an adequate supply so long as you eat a rational diet. The so-called enriched foods have already been devitalized. The mere addition of a chemical equivalent of the necessary vitamins and minerals does not compensate for the loss of natural food elements. Continue reading »

Shape up in 30 days!

Are you fat, flabby, frustrated – and motivated enough to do something about it? And are you in a tearing hurry to see results without too many tears?

Yes, you can. You can have a better body in one short month.

If your image in the mirror makes you want to squirm, no need to despair. It is possible to get a better body – and fast!

You need to adopt just a two-point programme:

  1. Lose weight
  2. Tone up your body

Excess body fat is possibly the biggest impediment to looking and feeling in good shape. So, losing those bulges should be your first marching order. But, although you want to see results in a month, remember that, paradoxically, the fastest way to weight loss is to go slow and gradual. One or two pounds a week is reasonable and healthy, and over a month that’s no mean drop in body fat.

The best approach to losing weight is based on two activities: eating sensibly and exercising. Continue reading »

Diet Denials

How often have you heard, “I ‘m not on a diet, I’m just not eating wheat at the moment?” This is one excuse used by otherwise smart women in a bid to stay slim. Of course I don’t diet. I have a much healthier attitude to food. I’ve done the occasional detox – no wheat, no dairy, no booze, and no meat. I’ve dabbled with food combining, never mixing those evil opposites of fish and chips.

I’m not alone. Dieting or old-fashioned calorie-counting is difficult, boring, and out-of-date. So instead, many women are now imposing bizarre rules on what they can and can’t eat. Models often attribute their looks to drinking lots of water. What they don’t admit is that they drink water instead of eating food, not in addition to it. They chew gum constantly, because mouths full of gum can’t be full of food. Hands-busy technique: when not chain-smoking, models can often be spotted knitting or playing video games backstage, because busy hands can’t be full of chips.

And they pretend that they’re naturally, effortlessly slim. This ‘my metabolism’s faster than your metabolism’ one-upmanship sees famously skinny celebs pretending to be big eaters – such as Victoria Beckham claiming to at bags of crisps a day. And it leads us into cutting out wheat or dairy or food-combining – only eating foo that’s green, or never eating after 4 p.m., all in the name of health of course. Continue reading »

How Adequate Is Our Diet?

We may be very careful and try to eat a diet which may seem quite adequate, yet we may not be aware of many pitfalls in our selection process. What seems to be a good and nourishing diet may actually lack quite a few essential health promoting items.

A diet is a “good” diet when it provides all the nutrients that a particular individual requires after working out his health status, biochemical individuality and stress levels.

We hear it talked about everywhere doctors, dieticians, nutritionists are never consistent about what they hold as the right diet – today it is high protein, tomorrow it may be high fibre, yesterday it was high carbohydrates; no sugar; no fats, fruits eaten whole with skins, not as juices; raw, steamed, not fried; grilled, no red meats, butter, eggs, full milk – the “Notes” are endless “the musts” and “shoulds” increasingly forbidding and unpalatable! But all are agreed that a good diet should provide all the nutrients required but in the lifestyles and stresses of today’s modern living, this may not be possible.

Our comparatively healthy long-lived forefathers were predominantly vegetarian. With fruits and vegetables in bulk and later meat, dairy products and grains… their meats were from wild herbivores containing only 4% fat, while today’s meat from domesticated animals contains more saturated fatty acids (25 – 35 % fats): Plants foods too differed in composition. The diet would have included different plant species suited to the particular soil type of the area and a greater range, trace nutrients. The fibre content was greater than as in present diets, intake of grains and dairy products was less, less salt was consumed and refined sugar was unheard of. Continue reading »

Eat your way to super weight loss!

It’s not true that you’ve got to live on lime water for breakfast and sprouts for lunch if you want to lose weight.

It’s not true that you can never eat chocolates or ice-creams or wafers if you want to lose weight.

It’s not true that you must drastically cut down on starches if you want to lose weight.

It is true that dropping a few kgs is a cinch once you’ve discarded a few myths about food.

It is true that you can eat up, fill up… and not fill out.

Here’s the secret to how to do it:

It’s a basic principle of weight loss: To drop pounds, you eat less. The only question is what to eat less of. It’s logical to assume you need to eat less of everything – an approach that’s long held sway with dieters and nutritionists alike. But most diets that restrict total calories are doomed to failure: Eventually you have to give in to your body’s rightful craving for nutrients. Instead, new research shows that to lose weight, we need to mostly cut one kind of calorie: fat. Continue reading »

A Comprehensive Guide to Grow Taller Naturally

A seed is nothing but a potential tree. The seed of mango becomes a mango tree. The egg of bird is a potential bird. The egg of an eagle becomes a majestic eagle. Whether it is a seed of a plant or an egg of an animal or a new born babe of human-being, the potential for development and growth is always there. Each child is special, unique and individual and its potential is hidden in its genes. A seed needs proper nourishment and environment for becoming a full grown tree. And an egg needs the proper nourishment and environment to become a full grown animal. In the same fashion, a child also needs proper nourishment and environment to become a fully developed human-being. We need to educate ourselves regarding the lifestyle and diet that we should adopt, so that, our full potential is manifest.

Besides, the genetic potential that is latent in the child, there are other important factors too that plays a vital role in the growth and development process. If a person is encouraged and is informed the right and healthy lifestyle, and be given proper environment for development, and be educated to know the nutritious diet, that person can gain even more height than the genes allow.

A deep understanding about the growth process is required to unfold all the potential. A mango seed can become a mango tree, a palm seed can be turned to a palm; in the same fashion, growth of our body is predetermined by our genes. The colour of eyes, colour of hair, overall body complexion (dark or light), size of the body (short or tall), shape of the body (thin or fat)… everything is predetermined. But remember… there is always space at the roof. Think once, if all the growth and development is genetically predetermined how the evolution would be possible? The truth is we can cultivate ourselves beyond our genes and only then we can say we are born free. The unrevealed truth is, all the physical growth is predetermined by our genes but only 60 to 80% and still we can culture the other 20-40% of our potential. This is the point around which all my research goes. This article will surely help to unfold the full growth potential. Continue reading »
