Nutrition Label Changes and you

If you are health conscious you need to be aware of this:

Nutrition Label Changes: What Would They Mean?
from HealthyWomen.org’s Diet & Nutrition area

For the first time in 20 years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing changes to the way that food nutrition is labeled. The labels were created to help Americans make better decisions about the foods they eat and to encourage healthy diets. If adopted, the new labels, with a new design, would include better explanations of nutrition science and updated serving sizes. Here’s what you could get from the new labels.

Better understanding of what’s healthy

The new labels involve some changes that make it easier for consumers to understand the nutrition information in relation to a healthy total daily diet. For example, the labels would require companies to list “added sugars,” which can decrease the intake of nutrients and increase calorie intake. Updated daily values for nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and vitamin D would also be included. Potassium and vitamin D amounts would be required on all labels, because they are considered newly important for public health. Finally, the “calories from fat” measurement would be removed. Research has shown that the type of fat is more important than the amount, so just the types of fat (total, saturated and trans) and their amounts will be listed.

More realistic serving sizes

As you probably know, serving sizes can seem pretty arbitrary, and many are a lot less than what people typically eat or drink. For example, you’re probably not going to stop drinking a 20-ounce soda at the 8-ounce mark and call that one serving. The new labels will include serving sizes that reflect how much people typically eat rather than how much they should eat. Packaged foods and drinks that are usually consumed in one sitting will be labeled as a single serving, so the nutrition information is for the entire amount. Some that could be eaten all at once or spread out would include two columns: one for “per serving” and one for “per package.” This can give people a better picture of how many calories they’re taking in.

Easy-to-read design

The proposed changes would make the serving size and amount of calories on the label more prominent in big, bold text toward the top of the label. The Percent Daily Value measurement would be moved to the left of the label so consumers would read it first. The footnote about the Percent Daily Value would also be altered to more clearly explain the meaning of this measurement, making it easier for people to judge what’s healthy and what’s not.

The FDA is accepting comments on the proposed changes. If approved, it is not known when the changes will occur. If these proposed changes are made, they could have a significant positive impact on the health issues that many people in America face, like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

5 Steps to a Heart-Healthy Diet

5 Steps to a Heart-Healthy Diet
from HealthyWomen.org’s Heart Health Center

If you’re not already taking good care of your heart, now’s the time to start. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer among women and men in the United States. Many risk factors increase your chances of developing heart disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and being overweight.

Luckily, one of the best ways to protect your heart and reduce your risk is by eating a heart-healthy diet. Here are five steps to get you on the right track.

1. Load up on fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
These three factors are the keys to a heart-healthy diet. Balance your meals with a mix of these high-fiber foods, and feel free to include legumes and nuts as well. Fiber helps regulate blood pressure and keeps you feeling full longer. Aim for 4 1/2 cups of fruits and veggies a day and at least 3 ounces of whole grains.

2. Watch unhealthy fat and cholesterol.
Limiting the amount of saturated and trans fats you eat can help you lower your cholesterol levels and reduce your risk of coronary artery disease. Choose healthy fats like those found in olive oil, canola oil and trans fat-free margarine instead of the ones in butter, creamy sauces, hydrogenated margarine and shortening. Look for monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats, like the ones found in healthy oils, nuts, seeds, soy (tofu) and seafood.

3. Reduce your sodium intake.
Too much sodium can result in high blood pressure. Start by reducing the amount of salt you use as a seasoning when you cook, then begin paying attention to how much sodium is in the prepared foods you eat, like canned soup. You shouldn’t get more than 1,500 milligrams a day.

4. Go with low-fat protein.
Protein is an important part of your diet, but some types are better than others. Stay away from full-fat dairy products, egg yolks, fatty meats and cold cuts. Instead, opt for low-fat dairy, egg whites, lean meat, poultry, fish and legumes. Try starting a Meatless Monday tradition with your family and substitute plant protein for animal protein to reduce your fat and cholesterol intake.

5. Make a meal schedule.
Knowing what to eat and what to avoid is just the beginning of maintaining a heart-healthy diet. To ensure that you stick to the plan, create a meal schedule for your household once a week. Choose heart-healthy recipes and add the ingredients you need to buy to your shopping list. This not only can help ensure a healthy diet, but it could also lower your grocery bills.

Take charge of your health

Don’t drink another cup of coffee until you read this:

Benefits of Coffee*

  • Accelerates fat loss by increasing the metabolism
  • Increases workout performance—an energy enhancement for long, intense workout regimens
  • Improves overall focus—improves memory, concentration and reaction times
  • Decreases muscle pain by strengthening muscle contraction
  • Prevents disease—an inverse correlation with diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and several forms of cancer

Is the coffee business expanding or are we now more aware of the coffee industry?

I do not know if you realize that Starbucks is now in India. They are all over the world and all the other fast food businesses are now offering coffee as part of their breakfast menu. It is as though the coffee business has expanded overnight and each cup of coffee is money in hand.

Just from seeing Starbucks offering a reward card and you can even get a $5 gift card, you have to know that there is some competition when it comes to including a cup of coffee in your menu.

Imagine if we were getting paid for each cup of coffee purchased by all those people we told about Starbucks or Mc Café or Dunkin Donuts coffee? You would have a profitable work at home business and you would be running all the way to the bank. All credit cards would be settled; as a matter of fact you would now have a debit card with money loaded on it. You would certainly have the new house and what about that car you have been checking out in the showroom?

The next company that is expanding its coffee offerings rapidly via a work at home program is organogold. Organogold has recently entered Japan and Russia. Who do you know in these places? You can rake in some good referral income from each cup of coffee they drink and you do not even have to be there. The list below shows the other countries organogold is in. Best of all everyone who is with organogold and spreads the word about organogold products like their coffee and tea are rewarded with cash.

Yes cash! This has become a tried and true work at home business.

The other interesting point with organogold is that this is not just coffee or tea blends this is the healthy stuff. The content of the various products have been developed to produce a great tasting coffee/tea or hot chocolate with healthy and wealthy benefits.
Review for yourself here: ://www.justhealthy.organogold.com

Are you going to settle for a $5 gift card or from $20 to $150 per referral? This is in addition to the other member benefits. You got to wake up and start getting paid for each cup of coffee that you refer.
Would love to hear your comments.

This is a list of the countries where organogold is being distributed:
The Americas
• US
• Canada
• Dominican Republic
• Ecuador
• Jamaica
• Mexico
• Peru
Europe
• Austria
• Belgium
• Cyprus
• France
• Germany
• Greece
• Hungary
• Ireland
• Italy

The Good, The Bad and The In Between!

These days everywhere I turn someone I know has cancer, or someone I know, knows someone who has cancer. Cancer has no preferences.

I have only heard about these people but I have never knowingly met any Cancer patients until recently, and these are my experiences.

A couple of months ago I became friends with a very devout Christian lady whom I found out later has Cancer.  I greatly admire this lady as no one would ever know that she has Cancer.  She recently indicated that she might have to undergo surgery for the Cancer, but she would allow the doctors to operate on any part of her body except her brain. She happily said, and with confidence ‘once it is my brain, no, let me go to meet my Lord’. She is always very cheerful and always deeply devoted to being a soldier for the Lord’s works. When I look at her, I think God gives us troubles but also gives us the courage, strength and attitude to deal with it. This lady reminds me somewhat of Job from the Bible who was plagued with illness and troubles, yet he continued praising the Lord incessantly. It is with her in mind I am moved to write this article.

I am of the view that when you are stricken with illness or life’s troubles you either, put your hands up in the air and give up or wallow in your troubles and dwindle away quickly or you fight.

 

Change the way you look at things, change your attitude and make peace with your creator. Of course this may be easier to say than do, but you soon realize that there are only two choices.

I also heard of a Priest who is battling with cancer. How can this be? Priests, Pastors all the people who spread God’s word teach us how to pray and even pray for healing for us. I was talking to a ninety-six year old lady and she said ‘we all have to suffer’, so I guess there are no exemptions.

My next encounter was in February 2012 when I met a sixteen year old girl named Lisa. She had a rare type of cancer. This affected her muscles. The Doctors had decided that they could do no more for her so she was at home being looked after by a Caretaker, her older cousin.

I visited Lisa on a number of occasions, and what I admired about her was her courage. She was always smiling despite the excruciating pain she endured. She had very huge bulges over her legs and under her neck. I remember praying with her and for her and also fighting back the tears when I saw her grimacing in pain.

I would take fruits for her, and got her Caretaker to give her a blend of apple, carrot and potato juice (this organic blend helped eased her pain), together with chai seeds, and Green Tea with Ganoderma. I regretted that I did not meet her before.

I recall the week before Lisa moved on, her Doctor said she thought she would have been worse, and for the last week before leaving this life she had no pains.

She spent the day before her passing with her Grandmother and Uncle and some other family members who visited and finally spent the rest of the night, up till two am bonding with her mother and Caretaker. Early that morning Lisa moved on in her sleep, very quietly. For me such courage is indescribable.

I also know of people who have been very mean and hurtful to other people, who have been struck with cancer. At one time it would not bother me that people who hurt others get sick even with Cancer, but I realize that we do not know why these people hurt other people and we must have an open mind and heart. We must also learn to forgive.

Quite alarming was the fact that the Bahamas Daily Newspapers a few months ago reported that Bahamas is one of the countries with a very high rate of persons who have been diagnosed with cancer. So those destructive bastard cells do not differentiate between the good, the bad or the in between but they have victims in every country.

 

 

What is Cancer?

The best explanation I have seen for Cancer is one from Gary Null ,Ph.D in his book ‘The Complete Encyclopaedia of Natural Healing’. According to Null Cancer is really a group of diseases in which cells do not follow the regular growth and reproduction that is common to diseases. Instead they multiply more rapidly than normal killing other body cells, and they spread from their primary location to other parts of the body by using the bloodstream and lymphatic system. The most common are tumours that start in the skin or in glandular tissue like the breast or prostrate gland.  There are other types that affect the bone, muscle and cartilage like in the case of Lisa.

It has been said that while there are some Cancer that are hereditary, because our diet lack adequate nutrients causing an acidic environment in our bodies, we have  introduced various chemicals for producing our foods,  and most of us live in the fast lane we set the stage for Cancer.

What can you do?

There are so many options available now, so I will just list a couple that I have noticed people are trying and getting results. Of course each of our bodies are different so what works with one person may not necessarily work for you, but where health is concerned once it is natural there is no harm in trying it. I am not a Doctor but a lot of these options you can do while continuing on your medication until you experience the results you want. Even if you do not have Cancer the following can still be used to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

 

  1. When your body speaks to you do not be afraid to go to the Doctor to check out what is happening.

Many times we have a pain or we feel something different with our body and we let it linger. Your body knows when something is wrong, so take the time to find out, and then with this information you can decide how to deal with it.

2. Be sure to have a cleanse every two to three months. Build-up of waste in the body causes excess fat and toxins to pile up. This can result in diseases. My mother always says ‘make sure and take some Senna Leaves every now and again’. I did not pay much attention, but as I mature there is wisdom in what she said.

 

3. Watch what you eat

You may want to change to a healthier diet, cutting out the fast foods and ditching the fried stuff for grill or broil. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Some people have found it beneficial to use whole foods, whole grains etc. If you are not discipline enough take a daily supplement that has powerful ingredients to help you get all the vitamins you need.

4.  Exercise. Exercise. Exercise.

I am at times guilty of this, but every health practitioner stresses this.  There are three things about good health – proper nutrition, adequate hydration and adequate exercise. I learnt that Cardio exercise gets the heart rate up and resistance exercise builds muscle and strengthens bones. Of course as we mature we need the muscle and our bones must remain strong. Exercise not only burns calories but keeps the blood and lymph fluids circulating and this helps to get rid of toxins. Sometimes we are not discipline enough to exercise, so having a Mentor helps with this.

5. Take Acidophilus. This is a probiotic which helps to eliminate or reduce the production of cancer causing chemicals. It also helps to deactivate cancerous causing enzymes. When you are on antibiotics or any medication for a prolonged period of time, both the good and bad bacteria are killed off. You will not be able to consume adequate nutrient based foods to replace the good bacteria so the Acidophilus replaces the good bacteria for you. I recall having been on Antibiotics for several years. When I eventually had a blood analysis done, the Nutritionist indicated that my body was lacking of good bacteria and this was causing some health problems for me.  Whenever you take Antibiotics you should replace the good bacteria. If your body is low on good bacteria you are exposed to all types of illnesses starting with your digestive system.

6. Boost the immune system with Co Q10. Health experts claim that this is a nutrient that is used for healthy immune system.

7. Avoid sugars, and excessive fats.  We all have that sweet tooth and we know now that sugar is acidic and affects our insulin level which in turn causes Diabetes. Excessive fats especially animal fats contribute to those extra pounds and puts a strain on our body which brings on all types of ailments.

 

.

8.Reduce or avoid red meat, unless you can be absolutely sure this is from animals that have been grass fed. You will notice a big difference if you can achieve this.

 

9. Keep the body hydrated; drink your six to eight glasses of pure water daily. You can also use Lemon juice in water, wheat grass or Chai seeds. Cancer or any other disease cannot strive in an alkaline environment, so the trick is to keep your body alkaline in order to balance the pH of the blood.

 

10. If you have been diagnosed start thinking organic e.g  a  blend of potato, carrot and apple may  help with your pains. This also helps eliminate tumours and help with acid reflux. I have personally used it for acid reflux. Take it on an empty stomach in the morning and before five pm in the afternoon. Some people also claim that eating Soursop and drinking tea made from Papaya or Pawpaw leaves help. As with everything else if you have been diagnosed make sure your Health Practitioner is aware of your diet.

11. Use Green tea or Coffee with Ganoderma. Ganoderma mushrooms are known to be effective for controlling cancer cells of the breast, lung and prostrate. Green Tea also counters the effect of radiation.

12 .Start daily forgiveness. Do not hold anything against anybody. Make   a list and forgive and let go. Research has shown that some people with Cancer had been harbouring a number of grudges and un-forgiveness.

13 .Do some deep breathing exercises daily. This helps to put more oxygen back into your system. Inhale through your nostrils and fill the stomach and then exhale through the mouth. You should see the stomach getting larger when you inhale and being reduced when you exhale.

14 .Meditate. Take time off daily and just sit still and be at peace with  yourself and everyone and ask for guidance from the creator.

15.Start being grateful for what you have and give back. Help someone in need without expecting them to repay you. Smile and be courteous. Laugh more and enjoy life. After all you only pass this way once so make the best of it!

Motivation and Health Tip – Be Yourself and Weight Loss Tip

Motivation

We all want to be like someone else.
We want to be like this star, or this leader,
or we want to look like this or that person.

Why don’t you just be yourself!!

Oscar Wilde said:
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

In performing the wedding ceremony of
Prince William and Catherine Middleton, the Bishop
of London used this quote from St Catherine of
Siena:
” Be who God created you to be, and you will set the world on fire.”

 

Health


Do you know that eating while engaged in another
activity like watching TV  or reading actually
increases weight gain because digestion slows
down allowing more fat to build up?

So focus on your eating.
Have a glass of room temperature water before you eat.
Start with your salad or vegetables first.
Avoid drinking while chewing as this increases the chance of gas.
End with a hot drink. This aids digestion.


Stop Looking back and the benefits of cold water fish

Motivation

Are you constantly looking back and re-living all your hurts and pains?
Are you walking with your head down and shoulders slouched because you
are focusing on self-pity, all your disappointments and complaining about everything?

Don’t you dare give up on what Tomorrow holds because of what you are seeing today!

Life has a way of changing sometimes in a day or immediately and you have what it
takes to receive all the good that life has to offer.

 

Health


Do you know that eating one meal per week of cold water fish
( mackerel, tuna, herring, salmon, cod, trout, sardines or halibut)
can reduce the risk of heart attack by half?

Eating this meal increases the good cholesterol (HDL) and
decreases the bad cholesterol (LDL).
