15 Ways to a Healthier New Year.

At this time of year we think about our future and what we would like to achieve in the New Year.  Many of us will have achieving good health and, perhaps, weight loss on our minds.


So it’s time to act on your thoughts and make some beneficial changes, simple things like:-

  1. Stop drinking sodas – drink purified water instead (add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice) or drink green tea with lemon juice.
  2. Drink plenty of water each day – are you hungry or just dehydrated?
  3. Reduce your consumption of bottled fruit juices – make your own.
  4. Reduce your sugar intake (when you stop drinking sodas you’ll get this benefit).  Use only natural sugar substitutes.
  5. Reduce the quantity of processed foods you consume. There are hidden sugars and fats, plus lots of chemical additives you’ll want to avoid. Read labels – if you need a science degree to understand the ingredients you probably shouldn’t eat it.
  6. Reduce your salt intake, use only natural quality salt which is chemical free and contains minerals.
  7. Add flavor with herbs, spices or lemon juice instead of adding salt.
  8. Reduce you fat intake. Consume only healthy fats. Learn more about dietary fats
  9. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce the quantity of meat you consume.  Look at the portions on your plate – make sure vegetables make up 75%.
  10. Make your plate like a rainbow of colors – eat a variety of colorful vegetables.
  11. Use a smaller plate and drink more water.
  12. Learn about Anti Cancer truths
  13. Read about how you can rejuvenate your body at a cellular level.
  14. Learn how an acidic body is bad for you and how to achieve an alkaline body.
  15. Improve your Nutrition Intelligence

Lose Weight With Water

The human body is mostly water trapped inside the fragile walls of cells.

We drink water to maintain the optimum level of hydration in our bodies, to flush the toxins out and cleanse the body, to cool off, to keep our joints lubricated and to assist in the food digestion process. Although they don’t realize it, most people are suffering from chronic dehydration.

The minimum daily recommended water intake is 2 liters, because this is how much water the body uses throughout the day through perspiration, respiration, urination and other bodily functions. Without replenishing lost water, the body goes into dehydration mode and all functions start to suffer. Water is essential to life and proper bodily function.

Your the metabolism is dependent on water to work properly. Without enough water, the process of breaking food down and converting it to energy slows down dramatically, which means that too few calories are burnt and little weight is lost. Not drinking enough water can be compared to “running on fumes” and if you’re dieting and you seem to have hit the plateau, then you are probably not drinking enough water. When the metabolism slows down, weight loss slows down even more dramatically, especially since exercising becomes less effective as the body’s energy levels diminish.

Water also plays an important part in the process of digestion and elimination of toxins. Not drinking enough water is a one-way ticket to constipation and a host of other problems of the intestines. Poor digestion means that you will not get enough energy from the food you’re eating. This will prompt the body to ask for more food and this is how the weight loss process stops and the weight gain process begins. A dehydrated body sends out fake hunger pangs, thus tempting you to forget about the diet and eat more food than you should.  Thirst is often mistaken for hunger.

Not to mention that water is also a good filler. If you want to eat less food, drink a tall glass of water half an hour before every meal. The water will fill a large part of your stomach and the body will be content to feel that the stomach is not empty. This is not idle speculation, but a sound advice whose effectiveness can be confirmed by many dietitians and weight loss experts. Nobody can overeat with half of the stomach filled with water, your brain will signal to you: “Seems like we’re almost full. We don’t need that much food, so cut it short this evening”.

Keep in mind that in order to reap the benefits of drinking enough water, you will want to spread the intake throughout the day. Don’t drink 2 liters of water all at once because the body will simply flush the excess and a lot of it will simply be wasted. Also, you don’t need to restrict yourself to water. Fruit juices, tea and coffee count as liquids that can be used by the body for hydration, although fruit juice has lots of sugar and calories so it’s probably best not to overdo it. Alcohol is out of the question, because alcohol has the opposite effect on the body. Don’t be afraid that drinking a lot of water will make you retain fluid. It’s dehydration, not abundance, which forces the body to hang on to what it has.

If you find water a bit boring, add a squeeze of lemon juice to each glass – it helps cleanse your system.

Of course it’s preferable to drink filtered, purified water using a system like the Hexagon water filter.


Hexagon 8 Stage π-Water Purifier

Is your drinking water dead or alive?

The Hexagon 8-stage π-Water Purifier is a smaller, more compact unit for smaller families or individuals living on their own. Now, everyone can enjoy the benefits of clean, pure and healthy π-Water at a very affordable price. The Hexagon TM 8-Stage π Water Purifier is one of the most comprehensive water treatment systems you can find today.

Hexagon 8 Stage Water Filtration System

Ceramic Filter
Made of ceramic material from Japan, it filters away 99.99% of contaminants such as sediment, sludge, rust, and bacteria.

Water is free of sediments and bacteria*.
* Common water-borne bacteria, such as E-Coli and Cryptosporidium are larger than 1 micron.

Ion Exchange Resins
NSF*-approved ion exchange resins from USA adjusts calcium and magnesium content to soften water.
* National Sanitation Federation of the United States of America

Water is softer and smoother to drink.

Activated Granular Carbon
NSF-approved Activated Granular Carbon from Japan adsorbs chlorine, odor and color.

Water is chlorine-free and clear, without any offensive odors.

Sufficient consumption of clean water has been shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers (colon, breast, bladder and kidney).

Mineral Stones
100% natural mineral stones infuse water with ionic minerals and trace elements.

Water is mineralized, sweet tasting and slightly alkaline to match the body’s balance of pH7.2-7.5.

KDF + Activated Granular Carbon
NSF-approved Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF), a zinc-copper compound, neutralizes organic and inorganic mercury, trichloroethylene [TCE] and trihalomethanes [THM] and other heavy metals. Also inhibits bacterial growth and preserves the pleasant, fresh state of water. When combined with Activated Granular Carbon, it enhances adsorption of chlorine, 6 to 8 times better.

Water is totally purified.

EC3000 Far Infra-red Ray [FIR] Energy Beads
Made of naturally FIR-emitting ceramic clay, these beads energize the water, causing intense vibration which breaks water molecules into smaller clusters that are easily absorbed into and used by body cells.

Water is energized for optimum benefit to the body.

According to Dr F. Batmanghelidj, founder of Foundation for the Simple in Medicine and author of “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water,” water can actually cure. He advocates proper hydration to alleviate the following ailments: arthritis, asthma, backache, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, urinary problems, obesity, headaches,,,, heartburn, indigestion, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, high cholesterol, menstrual problems, morning sickness, stress and depression.

Magnetic Stones
Magnetic stones create a magnetic field to further breakdown water clusters, producing p-water with NMR* readings of an average of 47Hz, compared to tap water which has an average NMR reading of 120Hz.
* Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is a method used to measure the size of water molecule clusters.
