Going Paleo for 30 Days

I completed the 28 Fast Metabolism Diet and did not cheat at all. It was not the most pleasant experience, dieting never is. But I walked away from it 10 lbs. lighter. So to me, it was worth it.

Oh No, Not Again
I then attempted the maintenance stage. However, the scale started tipping in the wrong direction almost immediately. Grrrr.... What is a woman who still has 30 lbs. to go supposed to do? I can tell you for sure it isn't staying on the FMD long term. I did mention it wasn't the best experience for me, right?

Now What?
So I decided to do some self reflection and think about what has helped me with weight loss in the past. Trust me, I am an experienced dieter. And therein lies the problem. I desperately need to get off the diet train. I have no problem losing weight. I also have no problem gaining it all back, plus some.

But one lifestyle change did help me significantly before and didn't feel like a diet - eating Paleo. I pondered that for a few days, switched to 99% …

Understanding The Vital Parts Of A Healthy Diet



As there seems to be more and more research linking your health to what you eat, Nutrition has become a vital part in most people’s lives that are trying to lead a healthier life. While it may be confusing at first with all the different experts telling what to eat and what not to eat, nutrition does not have to be as complicated as you think. Hopefully these tips will help you get your life back on the healthy track.


Red Meat

Limit your consumption of red meat to no more than two to three times a week. Research has shown that a diet high in red meat can clog arteries and potentially lead to high blood pressure. Red meat is also high in saturated fat and cholesterol. This can lead to heart disease.

In contrast to this, red meat is not that bad for you. Well there are benefits to be had if you eat it in moderation. In fact, an average size portion of lean red meat can have the same amount of fat than the same serving size of poultry. The secret is choosing lower-fat varieties of red meat, such as fillet steak with no fat.

Protein is a crucial part of your diet and many people don't consume enough. The best form of protein is lean, red meat, like steak. Chicken and pork are also good sources. Protein makes you feel full and aids the growth of muscle in your body, making it one of the most important nutrients to consume during any diet.

If you are struggling to find time to cook and buy all the ingredients for your new diet then why not order from online butcher shops. When you place your order you can be guaranteed next day delivery from Dublin Meat Company. Not only can you get it delivered to your home or office you get premium quality meat for wholesale prices. This is up to a 40% saving on leading supermarkets.


Iron Rich Foods

You should consume iron rich foods such as almonds, lentils, seafood, or lean red meat as part of your diet. Iron deficiency is most common in women and can result in some health issues if not taken care of. Some common symptoms to watch for are fatigue, dizziness, and shortness of breath.


Nuts

 

Nuts have many benefits: they are rich in energy, protein, packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and much discussed omega-3 fatty acids

Peanuts are a great way to support a stable healthy diet. Well Non-salted peanuts are rich in energy and contain many health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health.
Don’t confuse peanuts with the nuts in packets. These packets of peanuts are full of salt and will do more damage than anything. Normal Peanuts are a good source of protein and compose fine quality amino acids that are essential for growth and development.

Nutrition is not just a set of rules, it is a change in your attitude towards food. Nutrition is about understanding the link between your health and the food you put into your stomach. By applying the simple tips and advice from this article to your every day life, you will begin to see the benefits of a nutritious diet and a healthier lifestyle.

I have always been into healthy eating and nutrition since I was a young kid, that's not to say I didn't enjoy the unhealthy things in life. I have been quite an active person my whole life. I have played nearly every sport and my latest sport to try is American Football and I quite like it. With all the hard work i have put in over the years the one rule I live by is "Moderation" If you moderate the bad things you eat then you will be on course to meet your goals.

How to Clean a Hamilton Beach Juicer

I bought the Hamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor, and I am so glad I did. Besides being a great juicer, it is not a monster to clean at all! I can say with confidence that as long as you clean it AS SOON AS YOU ARE FINISHED juicing then you won't find clean up challenging. Let me show you how easy it is to clean this juicer.

I try to make sure that I have a clear sink after the last meal is finished. That way, I do not have to spend time having dishes washed when I am ready to juice. I run hot, soapy water in the sink before I begin juicing.


And then I get to juicing.


When I'm done I pour my juice into a glass.
 What can I tell you? Big hair = big heart!


I cover the glass with plastic wrap, and set it in the freezer.
I NEVER drink my juice until after I clean my juicer. EVER! I know this will save me the heartache of having to deal with a filthy gunky juicer.


Next, I scrape the pulp into a container for later use, or discard it. I didn't think you'd w…

Christian Weight Loss Bible Study

Today I found a christian weight loss Bible study that I am really excited about. Not only does the course look good, it is also free. It is called The Lord’s Table and the study is from Setting Captives Free Ministries.

Despite the price of the course (which is nothing) you get quite a bit. Each day you are taken through some passages of scripture, you answer some study questions, and a few testimonials are shared with you. You are even assigned a mentor so that you have accountability when going through the christian weight loss Bible study. Your mentor will stay in touch with you weekly and is available to answer any questions that you may have.

Previous Experience
I did use biblical principles once before to lose 65 lbs. and I kept it off for a few years. But then I went to Air Force basic training and my relationship with food got completely out of whack again. Being denied food, forced to scarf down complete meals in 3 minutes, and not being able to eat past 4 pm (e…

Healing Scriptures Online in Audio

Yesterday I started searching online for healing scriptures after hearing a wonderful sermon about feasting on the Word of God. That teaching made me realize that I needed to take stronger action against sickness and infirmities. Thank you God for medicine and for doctors. But the Great Physician already made a way for us to be healed way back at the cross. 
Songs About Healing
Initially, I was looking for free songs that I could stream where someone was singing healing scripture. I didn't quite find that. But I did come across a CD by Keith Moore that contains songs about healing. You can download the entire CD for free. Well, I couldn't on my iPad but hopefully you'll be able to on the device that you're using.  But I did stream some of the songs; and, I have no doubt that listening to those over and over will increase your faith.
