  • Top Healthy Eating Habits From My Local Limo Guy.

    Do you find it interesting how sometimes you can find the most useful information from the most random places?

    And why is it that it seems we usually had the answer all along?

    Of all the people i currently know i never expected it to be my local hummer limo guy who would let me in on a few little tricks y0u can pay attention to that really improve your health.

    I mean my hummer limo guy was fit and doing very well with the company’s he was working with, but he did not strike me as the health crazed type.

    Anyway, Here Is What He Said.

    It’s no secret that there are hundreds of fad diets out there, and while many of them are focusing on aesthetic reasons for dieting, like changing your body, losing weight or trying to look and feel a certain way, very few of these diets focus on health and well-being.

    The healthiest eating habits begin with focusing on how you feel in your body and in relation to food. The most crucial elements of eating are digestion and elimination. When we consider these aspects and their important for nutrient absorption and distribution within the body, we allow ourselves an opportunity to eat for health, rather than for body image.

    Chewing your food

    The best habit you can take up for healthy eating, it proper chewing. It may sound silly, but most people eat quickly, do not chew their food sufficiently and often time swallow entire chunks of undomesticated food, which ultimately is very hard for the stomach to process. Not only is it difficult for the stomach to digest food that isn’t completely chewed but it may not be able to extract all the nutrients, or would have to work much harder to do so. This can lead to nutrient deficiency or a tendency to over-eat in order to compensate for hunger and lack of nutrients in the body, when all that is needed is a bit more chewing. Proper chewing does not mean simply breaking the food down enough for it to be swallowed, it means grinding it into a paste so that your body can process it. Chew mindfully, and with every bite, remember that you are feeding your body with nutrients and that the more you chew, the more you’ll get out of your food – literally!

    Drinking enough water

    It is important to drink your body weight in ounces of water on a daily basis. This may sound like a lot, and if it does you may be chronically dehydrated. The body cannot eliminate properly without fluids, nor can it properly distribute nutrients through the body without relying on those fluids. If the fluids in our bodies are not replenished adequately, the body has to work harder in order to distribute the nutrients of what we have eaten, and this can cause fatigue, digestive discomfort, and difficulty eliminating. Make sure that you give your body enough to work with by also keeping it properly hydrated. Drink in smaller doses throughout the day, rather than a large amount at once (which can be difficult for the stomach), and which helps the body process food without affecting digestive enzymes.

    Fiber and elimination

    Fiber is very important for elimination, and elimination is very important for your health. So, while it may seem counter intuitive, proper elimination is actually one of the best things you can focus your energy on when it comes to healthy eating. This means eating enough fibers, from grains or fruits and vegetables, so that the body is able to get rid of accumulated waste. Consuming fiber cleans out the colon. When the colon is clean from waste, it can do a better job of absorbing the types of nutrients that can only be absorbed probably in that part of the digestive system. So by increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables and healthy whole grains, you’re doing your body a big favor.

    Reducing refined sugars

    Refined sugars have very little nutritional value, and while many people love their sugar, it really isn’t doing your body any favors. Cutting down on sugar is one of the best things you can do for your health, and if you retain nothing else from this article, keep in mind that eliminating sugar partially or completely will have excellent overall health benefits.

    So in the end it turns out that a normal hummer limo guy can be a health professionals too.

    Hope you can all take something away from this

  • Why Being a Vegan has changed my Life.

    VEGAN FOR LIFE

    Over the many years of TV commercials pounding me full of blatant misleading information about all sorts of topics i decided to give my life a major make over to instill more certainty into my everyday suburban average life.

    I had always been a hog of information pursuing intellect and real new age knowledge over the next fad and who married Brad. The problem was there is way to much information out there that is just simple miss leading and also, there to make someone money at any cost.

    I know this so far has nothing to do with being a vegan but i am sure that a little info about perspective may help with knowing where i am coming from and where my choices have come from.

     

    You see i didn’t always decide to stick to this diet or should i call it a way of life. In my earlier years i spend a great deal of time studying for my own good learning how to eat right, exercise right, look right fit in and be a square among other colorful squares. The problem was i am not a square so no matter what social color i chose to be, it didn’t fit with me right, i was a triangle!

    so i honed in on my own research, i decided that i would stop listening to ANYONE! sounds stupid right but it has been the best thing i could have done. I understand that life is all about what you think it is about and the mind controls every factor so to allow any other mind in to train yours is loosing your own personal touch.

    This is where i decided to eat different foods and see how i felt, how productive my day was, how much information i could retain all with different diets. I had already created a life long test that was ongoing with all the food i ate and how it made me feel.

    Subconsciously we know what food make us feel crap and what make us feel ecstatic to be alive!

    I don’t exactly call myself a vegan because i will still eat other things if its in the food i buy but i sure do watch what i eat and the health benefits and savings are some of the easiest ways to improve your own life if your feeling down or depressed or things are not going your way.

    We all create our own life and we choose what we accept as acceptable or not, this is what i mean when i tell people they are god, you live in heaven but your you don’t know it because you got bored of it so you chose to forget and act the fool.

    Its not that i don’t care for animals and think it is cruel that made me go vegan food style on the 21 century. Being an extreme animal lover i truly care for them and i can see what the big industry are doing so i understand that its not going to stop. Being a vegan because you don’t want to eat something that is on this planet for us to eat seems a little silly, our body’s have adapted to eat meat and it is essential for optimal outcomes but it is not necessary to survive so it remains a choice amongst many.

    I have no problem eating chicken, meat or any other non vegan food that has been hunted or has been free ranged. This food may have been grown to be eaten but you were grown to die to and that is life why let the natural goodness rot away when it can provide goodness?

    Never mind all that however. While in melbourne at a business venture i had a heated argument with a kind young gentleman about his eating habits and why he was vegan. This young man said he was a vegan because what we done to animals for food was a disgrace and we should stop immediately. Of course i agreed however went on to ask him why he was in military uniform in which he replied that he was in the military and getting ready to go over seas to fight in the war.

    I then asked him why he wanted to save the animals and yet fight other human beings to the death?

    the young man replied saying that they are the enemy so it doesn’t matter to which i laughed and made him very upset.

    If you are a true vegan and a vegan due to loving animals then surely you cant want to hurt another being no matter who you THINK they are right?
