It's all about being Healthy and Fit
The point is: health is not simply being symptom free. Health is functioning at 100% of your full potential.
Are you healthier now than you were 5 years ago?
Did you have more than one symptom?
Let me tell you what it means. If you have more than one symptom or the one symptom you have occurs more than once per week, you have a problem you should be concerned about. It's never normal to have a symptom. A symptom is your body's way of communicating to you that something is not right and needs to be checked.
You have two choices regarding your health. You can do the same things you're currently doing, getting the same results. Or you can try something new and do something different and get a different result.
The Choice is Yours.
You can become healthier by using the The Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss
Americans badly need to lose weight.
Among developed countries, the United States has the most obese and overweight people, according to Jean Lemaire, Wharton professor of insurance and actuarial science. "Americans are much heavier than they were 10 years ago and much heavier than other people around the world," says Lemaire. "Life expectancy in the U.S., which is among the richest countries, only ranks 48th in the world. Being overweight is comparable to having diabetes or having high blood pressure. It is a true diagnosable disease that affects life expectancy."
SECRET # 1
To lose weight, be aware low calorie diets don't work.
Most people believe that you lose weight by cutting calories or fat, eating only one meal a day, or only certain foods, or by starving yourself.
The body adjusts its energy requirements as it loses weight. This results in a resistance to maintaining weight loss, even with a low calorie intake
The secret to weight loss is not dieting!
The secret is in your metabolism, or how your body converts food into energy or fat. Metabolism is dependent upon the amount of muscle you have and the balance of your hormones. Since metabolism occurs primarily in muscle tissue, the more muscle mass that you have, the greater chance you have of increasing your metabolism.
Women have a 10% slower metabolism than men, and that is why they have more of a problem with weight gain.
Your ability to gain or lose weight, and to either have energy or be fatigued, is also dependent on the hormones secreted by your pancreas and thyroid.
SECRET # 2
Eat and drink only those things that are healthy for your body!
Our early ancestors consumed less sugar in a year than we now consume in a day.
Besides the thyroid the hormones most related to weight loss are those secreted by the pancreas. One is insulin, which either takes the sugar from the blood stream and puts it into the cells, or stores it as fat resulting in weight gain. The other is glucagon, which takes fat from the body and breaks it down to be used for energy, which results in weight loss.
Because of the large amounts of sugars we consume, the pancreas produces more and more insulin.
Remember, insulin is the key that opens the doors to cells, allowing sugar to move from the bloodstream to the cells to be used as energy. At some point, the cells close their doors and stop allowing insulin to do its job.
Insulin Resistance occurs when the normal amount of insulin secreted by the pancreas is not able to unlock the doors to the cells.
As a result, glucose builds up in the blood, and this can lead to Type II Diabetes. Recent studies have found that some 16 million Americans may suffer from the condition
"Pre-Diabetes." This condition of high blood sugar levels is the precursor to Type II Diabetes.
Even a minor elevation in the level of insulin in the blood will block glucagon from breaking down fat. Diets won't work if fat can't break down due to elevated insulin levels.
Ideally, you should eat many small meals a day made up of foods that will nourish your body and help maintain and control your insulin and glucagon levels.
You control insulin levels by eating lean proteins, complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, vegetables, and good fats.
White flour, white rice, and white sugar are highly processed, and contain no vitamins or minerals.
The disease Beriberi is caused by lack of vitamin B1. It only appeared in the Japanese population after they began to eat white rice.
Brown rice and whole wheat contain the natural vitamins and minerals found in nature.
In order to lose weight and feel younger, you should avoid bad fats, but not all fats. Avoid trans-fatty acids, hydrogenated and oxidized fats found in deep-fried foods, half-and-half, imitation mayonnaise, imitation sour cream, shortening, margarine, and non-dairy creamers.
Remember, processed foods and fast foods use hydrogenated oils.
Drink spring water.
The recommended amount of water that you should consume in a day can be determined by taking your weight and dividing it in half.
SECRET # 3
Avoid Unnecessary Drugs!
All medications have side effects, but some of the most damaging drugs are those for pain.
The common over-the-counter drug acetaminophen, found in Tylenol® and many other pain reducing medications, can have disastrous effects on the liver.
Since metabolism and the conversion of food to energy are dependent on a properly functioning body, one should try to avoid the consumption of unnecessary drugs.
Earlier we talked about metabolism, now let's look at the relationship between metabolism, movement, and your health.
The more active you are, the more energy you will burn. Movement could be dancing, golf, tennis, kayaking, hiking, or taking a walk.
Research indicates that walking 30 minutes a day and reducing your body weight by 5-7% can cut the risk of "Pre-Diabetes" by as much as 60%.
The 11 Day Liver Cleanse
This program is based on a radical method regarding weight loss. It is based on the concept that the body, to neutralize chemical impurities, will surround these impurities with fat and water. This will lead to weight gain.
If you were to remove the chemical impurities from your body, then the body would no longer need to hold onto the fat and water and thus you would lose weight.
Although this method is new and different, the results speak for themselves. Tens of thousands of people have been through this program with amazing results.
Toxicity is one factor that can cause the body to malfunction, causing disease and weight gain.
Other factors may also be involved such as hormone imbalances, stress on the nervous system or lack of circulation.
