Nutrition – Starting From Zero

We are constantly bombarded with messages from the media telling us that foods we have consumed for years are suddenly bad for us. One day eggs are good for you, the next day they are bad for your heart – what is the actual situation now?

You can’t afford to miss the information in the new movie “Food Matters” – Click the Title to find out more.

You need to eat more leafy green vegetables, reduce your consumption of bad fats (saturated animal fats), increase your consumption of good fats (like olive oil and avocado), eat quality lean protein, eat more fish (but beware of the mercury!), reduce your intake of sugar. Eat fewer processed foods. So what is the bottom line? What are nutritionists trying to tell you? It all boils down to the fact that what you don’t eat is more important than what you do eat.

Start From Zero
The best way to figure out what you should be eating to live up to your highest health potential is to start from recording what you are eating. It’s so easy to forget that extra bit of something. So, use your digital camera or phone camera. Every time you eat, stop, think, take a picture. Remember that the camera doesn’t lie. At the end of each day, write a list of the foods shown in those pictures. This may take a while, but you will be able to see that most foods can be broken down into a few simple categories at their basic ingredients:

  • Meat (beef, pork,chicken, fish, other seafood, etc)
  • Dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt, cream, desserts, etc)
  • Corn products (bread, chips, popcorn, etc)
  • Wheat (pastas, breads, desserts, etc)
  • Soy (bread, desserts, drinks, anything processed, etc)
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Water
  • Energy drinks
  • Alcoholic drinks

Now take out a fresh piece of paper and add only the items that fall under the category of fruits and vegetables. This is what is called starting from zero. Remove everything that does not contribute to your health and only add back those items that you know are good for you. Mark whether the food is natural or processed. Aim for unprocessed, preferably organic, fruit and vegetables.

Why Fruits and Vegetables?

The governments of the world recommend that you eat between 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables every day. This recommendation is a great one and it has helped dozens of people lose weight and become healthier. It’s easy eat 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables a day by eliminating other snacks like muffins, cakes or cookies. Apples, bananas, mandarin’s, oranges are easy to take with you almost anywhere, just wash them at home to make life a bit easier.  Find out more about the colors of fruit & vegetables HERE

It is only by eliminating the unhealthy, extraneous or over-processed foods that you will be able to incorporate the recommended quantity of healthy ones.

The Building Blocks of Health
Think of this exercise as a way to build up your health, starting from the base. By eliminating meat, dairy and aggravating grains from your diet you prepare your body for proper nutrition. You allow yourself to cleanse and you provide your body with all the enzymes, the minerals and the vitamins that your body requires for proper functioning.

Find out more about Enzymes by viewing our Enzyme Series HERE

Looking at the new list of healthy foods, you might see that it needs to be improved upon a bit. Why not add some new and exotic fruits and vegetables that you never tried before? Add more healthful grains in the form of brown rice, quinoa, barley and buckwheat if you find you need something denser. Old fashioned foods like rolled oats are great for you as well as tasting good.

Give Yourself a New Start
By starting fresh you give your body a break and a chance to rejuvenate itself. If you decide that you would like to add some of the things from the original list back into your diet, do so only 30 days after this exercise. Then watch to see how your body reacts to this newly added food. If you don’t experience any side effects then you can continue to eat it, once again. Otherwise you have proof that it was never that good for you in the first place.

Love Your Brain – Empower Your Life

Without a properly functioning brain we are in serious trouble, we just can’t live up to our full potential. Your brain works on the principle “use it or lose it”. Despite what you may have heard, you really can grow new brain cells.


Your brain need care and attention just like the rest of your body. So, how can you achieve an improvement in your brain power?

Think of your brain as an electrical circuit board, with an ability to constantly have new circuits installed, and existing ones to be reinforced.

So what are the building blocks of improved brain power? One is physical, the other mental exercise.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS

Keeping your body properly hydrated with energized living water is very important. However, you may not be aware that the single MOST important element crucial for the development and maintenance of healthy brain function is LECITHIN? It is a nutritional building block for the synthesis of the brain’s primary memory neurotransmitter.

Neurotransmitters function as brain messengers that enable the brain cells to “communicate” with each other. When neurotransmitter levels decline, the brain cells are unable to “communicate” efficiently with each other. This means that previously stored information (”memory”), cannot be recalled easily. Your “recall” ability weakens, causing fuzzy memory and mental tiredness in high-stress situations.

Lecithin is essential for mental development and maintenance. Lecithin is inexpensive and easy to consume.

MENTAL ACTIVITY

Fundamental cognitive abilities – such as memory, attention and processing speed – can be improved with appropriate training. I recommend the scientific brain exercises developed by Lumosity.

Detoxify Your Body – The Top 6 Ways to Detoxify Yourself



It’s a fact, we are like magnets for toxins like pesticides, herbicides (including carcinogens) preservatives and heavy metals. Just living in this century has made us vulnerable. The food we eat is contaminated. Fresh fish contains mercury and other heavy metals. Meat and poultry are grown with hormones. Even fresh fruit and vegetables have been subjected to pesticides and other toxins. Processed food is even worse, with chemical additives to preserve, color, anti-caking agents and who knows what else.

How about the air you breathe? Very few places have a good air quality these days. Look into the distance at your locality, is the air clear or smoggy? Think about the dirty, greasy coating which lands on your car, of course, you are breathing the same air which delivered that mess. We also absorb toxins through our skin.

Is it any wonder your body is overloaded, unable to properly rid itself of toxins and is crying out for help. Inflammation and irritation of your tissues, causing chronic illness, is the result.

So what are the top 6 things you are do to help the detoxification process.

Number 1 – Minimize exposure to toxins.
Avoid dry cleaning your clothes, make certain your normal washing is properly rinsed.

  • Don’t microwave your food in plastics (even if it says microwave safe).
  • Use glass containers to store food.
  • Beware of lead-based paint in older properties.
  • Use natural products and steam to clean your home.
  • Of course, don’t smoke.
  • Consider getting an air purifier to cleanse the air in your home, as it’s been proven that the air inside your home is often more polluted than the air outside.

Number 2 – Filter and purify your water.
This is an essential. We are made up of a large percentage of water. It is in every cell of our bodies. We are reliant on water to survive, and should consume 8-12 glasses daily to hydrate our cells and cleanse our system. However, it’s not just quantity, it’s also quality that counts. Most metropolitan water supplies are treated with chemicals to decontaminate the water. Rightly so, as untreated water would be a disaster. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean drinking the chemicals in the water is good for you. They add to your toxic load. A good water purifier should filter out the chemicals, add life and minerals to the water, energizing it to give it the structure of pure, natural water. Find out about Living Water HERE

Number 3 – Cleanse your digestive tract
The longer the transit time through your digestive system the more toxins are absorbed into your bloodstream. Therefore constipation is extremely bad for your health. Help your body rid itself of waste by drinking sufficient water to lubricate your system and eat enough fiber to “sweep” your colon clean.
Over time toxins build up in your colon, in a coating of plaque, preventing absorption of nutrients and “locking” toxins in, making colon cleansing a priority to extend your life. Click HERE for more information.

Number 4 – Eat organic food
Eating organic food not only reduces your toxic load, but also increases your nutrient intake. If you find it’s expensive or hard to find, try growing your own. Nature likes balance, so you will find, to a large degree, the good insects will take care of the annoying ones.

Number 5 – Detoxify with natural products

Chlorella – a single-celled dark green fresh water algae. It has a fibrous cell wall, which acts like a sponge to bind with all toxins (including heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides) and allow them to pass out of your body. More on Chlorella HERE
Chlorophyll – a natural cleanser of your blood and digestive system. Cleanses your blood, kidney, liver and digestive system. The best chlorophyll is obtained from the young leaves of the mulberry (morus alba l). More on Chlorophyll HERE
Spirulina – a blue-green algae with many benefits, including the ability to improve gastrointestinal and digestive health. More on Certified Organic Spirulina HERE.
Sorry to get personal here, but it’s important, you will have noticed that all these products are green, if your stools are not green, then you’re not taking enough.


Number 6 – Protect your skin
Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Chemicals pass through your skin directly into your bloodstream. Avoid chemicals touching your skin. If you must dry-clean clothing, make certain you air it outside to reduce the chemicals. Avoid cleaning with chemical-based products, or at least wear gloves and use in well-ventilated areas. Install a water filter in your shower. Use organic skin care products.

Think about everything you eat, breathe, drink and touch. The secret is to minimize the input of toxins and maximize their output.

Look After Your Body – Five Common Mistakes People Make When Looking After Their Body

Common Mistake Number 1

Thinking you will be young forever. Youth is very forgiving of late nights, early mornings, and poor eating habits. Later in life that the sins of your youth can catch up with you. Too much alcohol, sun exposure or other bad habits can leave lasting ill effects. As you age, the signs of excess in your youth will start appearing.

Solution: Realize you’re not “bullet proof”, and look after your health and well-being from any early age. It’s never too early to be aware of your body’s needs.

Common Mistake Number 2.

Eating too much fast food laden with sugar, salt and fats. Sure it’s a quick fix when you’re hungry and in a rush, but is the lingering regret worth it?

Solution: THINK before you eat. Look for better quality offerings. It’s actually becoming easier to find fast food which is healthier. If you can only find pizza, then add a salad and cut down on the number of pizza slices you consume. Beware of salad dressings, use olive oil and vinegar to get the benefits of both.

Common Mistake Number 3

Not drinking enough water. It’s a fact that a majority of people are trying to get through their busy lives in a dehydrated state.

Solution: Drink 9 to 12 glasses of water each day. Seem too much or too difficult? Drink 1 glass on waking, 1 glass before breakfast, 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the morning, 1 glass mid-morning, 1 glass after each time you go to the restroom (say 4/5 times a day), 1 glass before lunch, 1 glass mid-afternoon, 1 glass when you get home from work, 1 glass before dinner, 1 glass after dinner, 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the evening. Use daily events as “triggers” for your water consumption. Try to drink purified, energized water at all times.

Common Mistake Number 4

Smoking cigarettes. It’s now well recognized that smoking is extremely detrimental to your health. Also avoid “second hand” smoke.

Solution: Never smoke, simply don’t start. If you currently smoke give it up – your body will love you for it. Keep away from places where you’ll be exposed to smoke.

Common Mistake Number 5

Thinking it’s too late to do anything to improve your health. Don’t give up on you!

Solution: Remember that the cells in your body are constantly being renewed. Give your cells the best possible chance to be repaired and rejuvenated. Nourish your body with natural superfoods to provide concentrated nutrition and antioxidants, keep your body alkalized, hydrated and detoxified.


Nourish and Nurture Your Body – Your Best Insurance.

Don’t wait until you get symptoms of illness. Prevention is always better than cure.

Your best health insurance is to take good care of your body. Nourish your body with nutrients from natural superfoods and energized water. Detoxify to reduce the toxic load on your cells. Alkalize yourself by creating your personal firewall against an acidic body.

Nutrition Intelligence – Glossary – Antioxidants, Vitamins, Phytochemicals

Glossary of Terms you may find useful. Got something you can add? Just post a comment with the details.

A

Antioxidants Group of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phyto-nutrients, phyto-chemicals) which help protect your body from free radicals (caused by normal body functions, aging, pollutants, pesticides, antibiotic use and other factors).

Adaptogen – That which helps boost, balance and normalize functions in your body.

B

Bioflavanoids – Sometimes referred to as Vitamin P, these help to enhance the absorption of Vitamin C. The human body does not produce these so they must be supplied by your diet. They help to promote circulation, stimulate bile production, and act with Vitamin C to preserve and protect the structure of capillary blood vessels.

D

Demulcent – Helps to soothe and relieve internal inflammation.

E

Emollient – Helps to soothe and soften inflamed tissue

F

Free Radicals – A single or group of unstable molecules/atoms that can cause damage to cells, leading to breakdown and disease. Visualize and apple – when you cut it and leave the cut surface exposed to air.It turns brown, almost like it’s rusting. Oxidization has occurred. In a similar way unstable oxygen molecules in your body are the free radicals that cause your unprotected organs to “rust” and breakdown.

P

Phytochemicals – Literally meaning “plant chemicals”, phytochemicals are protective food factors derived from a variety of plant sources. Phtyochemicals have powerful health benefits. Whenever there is plant life, phytochemicals protect plants from attack by their enemies in the environment, like bacteria, viruses, radiation and insects. Research is now showing that we can benefit from these life-sustaining qualities as well. Good news for us. Plants have been in existence much longer than man and know much more about survival. Research indicates that phytochemicals can provide protection against some types of cancer.

T

Tonic – A product that is strengthening and invigorating.

V

Vitamins really deserve there own glossary! Vitamins are organic chemicals that are necessary for growth, metabolism, and overall health and well-being. Vitamins originate in food, and are categorized as either fat soluble (meaning they can be stored in the body for long periods of time) OR water soluble (these pass easily through our bodies, cannot be stored, must be replenished daily).

Vitamin A – Also known as Beta Carotene, a fat-soluble vitamin essential for cell growth, development, reproduction, and immunity. It is stored primarily in the liver and is considered one of the most potent antioxidants.

Vitamin B1 – Also known as Thiamine, a water-soluble vitamin, beneficial to the nervous system. It helps to convert blood sugar (glucose) into energy.

Vitamin B2 – Also known as Riboflavin, a water-soluble vitamin which helps with energy production. It must be replaced constantly. It is the most common deficiency.

Vitamin B3 – Also known as Niacin, a water-soluble vitamin, a major player against heart disease. It helps to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Vitamin B6 – Also known as Pyridoxine, this water-soluble vitamin goes through the body in only 8 hours. It is needed for red-blood cell production and cellular growth. It also plays a key role in the immune system and antibody production.

Vitamin B12 – Also known as Cyanocobalamin, a water-soluble vitamin known for its energizing capabilities. It is essential for nerve tissue, promotes growth, memory and regenerates red blood cells.

Vitamin B15 – Also known as Pantothenic Acid, this water-soluble vitamin helps protect against cardiovascular disease as ell as helping with symptoms of arthritis. It helps encourage healing, protects the liver and immune system.

Biotin -This water-soluble vitamin is essential for the metabolism of vitamin C, fat and protein. It helps with healthy hair, skin and nails.

Vitamin C – This water-soluble vitamin is essential for formation of collagen (exists between cells to hold tissue together). It is necessary for growth and integrity of bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and has many powerful properties; anti-cancer, prevention of blood clots.

Vitamin D – This is a fat-soluble vitamin that the skin can produce on its own when exposed to direct sunlight. In only 15 minutes a day, your body can manufacture all it needs. It is not very abundant in food, and is stored in the liver for future use.

Vitamin E – This fat-soluble vitamin is stored in many places; the heart, liver, reproductive organs, fatty tissue, and muscles. It basically works for the nervous system. It is a potent antioxidant, and helps to combat heart disease, by keeping good cholesterol (HDL) high, blood thin and blood pressure low.
