Omega 3 Fatty Acids and Fish Oil

Omega 3 fatty acids are praised more for their health benefits, but all three omega fatty acids are essential to normal metabolic functions in the body. The fatty acids omega 6 and omega 9 receive less attention, because they are more common in our diet.

Drinking sodas, diet sodas, juice and sugar-drinks can derail weight loss efforts in multiple ways. They are absorbed quickly, which create a rapid rise in insulin, causing negative effects on the body. Caffeine drinks also stimulate insulin production, contributing to weight gain.

When thinking of refined carbs, white flour consumption is a huge problem, as it is used extensively in foods. Many whole-wheat bakery items actually contain large quantities of white flour.  White flour-based foods and simple carbs are typically found in breads, bagels, pasta, crackers, chips, tortillas, muffins, cakes, cookies, and pizza dough.

Chronic “eaters” and "dieters" are, both, examples of people who are out of touch with their body's food requirements. They either try not to eat when they are hungry, or they consume far beyond the necessary calories for survival. Both types of eating habits are detrimental to health and weight, and create a challenge for any weight-loss regimen.

The weight-regulating mechanism in the brain "chooses" the amount of body fat it considers ideal for its needs, and then works tirelessly to defend that level. Changing it requires a reset of the "set-point" by adjusting the fat thermostat and increasing thermogenics.

Good Health is a Horse Race

Achieving a higher state of health is really not so difficult. We can all identify something in our life that could be modified to improve our health. Many of us might have defined a New Year’s Resolution that includes the reduction of a bad habit, or the introduction of a good habit. Whatever it is, I tend to recommend you don't think in terms of "cold-turkey", but instead, think in terms of "degrees". Your odds are greater for long-term success if you set a path of modest steps instead of big leaps when you begin to make changes.

How to Improve your Memory with Choline

Want to remember your Christmas list without checking it twice? Then make sure you are getting enough choline, the precursor to the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, and imperative to healthy function of the brain and central nervous system.

If you are confused, choline is a lesser known B vitamin that is an important nutrient for several functions, including memory. Choline is naturally found in foods, such as eggs, chicken, saltwater fish, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, and liver.

Flourless Chocolate Quinoa Cake & Cupcakes

Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is often referred to as a grain although other sources classify it as a seed. Botanically it is the fruit of a broadleaf plant in the same family as spinach and beets.

What's great about quinoa?

Quinoa is rich in potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and contains more iron than any other grain. It contains 50% more protein than other grains. (As a percentage of total calories, 12% to 18% of the calories in quinoa come from protein.) Unlike corn, wheat, and most other grains, which are missing the amino acid lysine, making their protein incomplete, quinoa is considered a complete protein because it contains all eight essential amino acids. The World Health Organization rates quinoa’s protein quality on a par with that of milk.

Dieing to Lose Weight

I see our friends across the pond are up to their old tricks.

What's it been, now... maybe a few years, or so, that the Chinese were busted lacing pet food and baby formula with melamine?

That stuff is terrific when used to make pretty white shelves and cabinets... but much less than terrific when blending it into a food supply.  Unless, of course, the goal is to poison something... then melamine is great!

And wasn't it a year before that when they were caught blending diethylene glycol into toothpaste to give it a rich, creamy texture?  What a superb idea.  After all, diethylene glycol works awesome as a solvent in brake fluid, engine lubricants and antifreeze, so why not scrub your teeth with it... except for the fact that it will kill you.
