6-Foods For Your Cravings:  

Good with foodWhile experts agree that eating healthy meals and avoiding snacks during the day helps keep your weight in check, there are exceptions to the rule…

Choosing snacks that are rich in healthy fat and fiber helps keep craving at bay so you’ll actually eat less at meals. About 5-minutes after fat enters the stomach, a hormone called enterogastrone is released, causing it to empty at a much slower rate.  Thus you feel fuller longer.

The effect of fiber as a hunger suppressant actually starts the moment you take a bite.  Foods full of fiber: think apples or whole grain bread – require more work to chew.  Increased chewing slows down your eating so your body has more time to realize it’s full, so you eat less.

If you’re trying to lose weight, but find yourself plagued by hunger pangs, there are certain foods that can help you curb your appetite.

Foods to help to fight hunger:

1.     Almonds and avocados:slim food

A handful of almonds or half an avocado on whole grain toast calms the appetite quickly.

Tea_leaves_steeping_in_a_zhong_čaj_052.      Green tea:

Green tea contains EGCG, a chemical that has been proven in studies to curb the appetite.  Stay away from sugary bottled brands and brew your own green tea from bags or loose-leaf tea.

3.      Spicy foods:

Just one spicy buffalo wing or a piece of Kung Pao chicken can actually suppress your appetite.  Even though these are high-calorie foods you will eat less in the long-term.

4.      Coffee:

Just like drinking a glass of water before a meal temporarily signals fullness to your stomach, research shows that coffee works the same way.  But coffee also contains caffeine, which boosts metabolism and suppresses appetite.

5.      Fatty fish:fishoil265__205440247

Not only are fish like salmon, sardines, and herring rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, they also suppress hunger by altering the body’s level of the hormone leptin.  Leptin is the hormone that tells your body that it’s full so you’ll stay sated longer. I often snack on shrimp, squeeze some fresh lemon and dip (easy) in seafood sauce.

6.      Lean protein:foods to consider

For my personal snacks I like high-protein foods.  Eggs, turkey or chicken slices, tofu and others can provide a prolonged sense of fullness without the swings in blood sugar that carbs create.

These 6 things can help flush fats out of your body.  If your interested in losing weight I want to offer you a couple of suggestions.

1.      If you order my individualized HealthTest© – along with finding out where you’re nutrient deficiency and being able to help your body become nutrient sufficient.

You will, from your answers receive a personal food program, designed according to the answers you supplied.  This has helped thousand of folks.

2.      I have my Personal Quick-Weight-Loss Program available.  Two options:  Lose faster or slower – but you will have easy-to-follow directions.

If you want to understand why your overweight or obese – take the time to listen to my archived online radio show, entitled: Lose Weight PERMANENTLY By Eating!™ You will be enlightened, for sure!

Corn-Sweetened Sodas:

high-fructose-corn-syrupCan we at least save our kids? Cane sugar doesn’t produce the harmful carbonyl compounds; the antioxidant from green tea (EGCG) reduces levels of reactive carbonyls

 Many public health advocates and researchers believe that high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) – a synthetically produced sweetener – promotes diabetes and obesity, because of differences in the way it’s metabolized compared with the sucrose in cane sugar.Corn

However, Spanish researchers found that liquid fructose affects a genetic switch called PPAR-alpha in ways that impair the ability of rodents’ livers to break down the sweetener.

As the Spaniards reported, “Because PPAR-alpha activity is lower in humans than in rodent livers, fructose ingestion in humans should cause even worse effects, which would partly explain the link between increased consumption of fructose and widening epidemics of obesity and metabolic syndrome.” (Rogans N et al 2007).

Pro-aging compounds abound in corn syrup-sweetened sodas

 cornsyrupResearchers at Rutgers University add fuel to the fire with a report that carbonated soft drinks sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contain very high levels of a chemical that may contribute to the development of diabetes, particularly in children.

 The scientists found that carbonated drinks containing HFCS had uniquely high levels of reactive “carbonyl” compounds.

Beverages sweetened with cane sugar (sucrose) are free of reactive carbonyls, because its fructose and glucose components are “bound” into chemically stable sucrose molecules.12-10-24banksysoda2

And carbonation seems to fuel formation of reactive-carbonyls in beverages containing HFCS.  The Rutgers group found only one-third the amount of reactive carbonyl species in non-carbonated drinks containing comparable concentrations of HFCS.

These pro-aging chemicals occur at very high levels in the blood of diabetics, and are linked to complications of the disease.

Rutgers researcher Chi-Tang Ho, Ph.D. tested 11 popular sodas containing HFCS and found “astonishingly high” levels of reactive carbonyls: a single can contained about 5 times more carbonyls than the blood of an adult with diabetes.

High reactive carbonyl compounds are associated with the “unbound” fructose and glucose molecules in HFCS, and bear a relationship to the advanced glycation end product (AGEs) found in many breads baked goods, and browned meats.sweetsoda
This is how the author of a recent scientific review expressed the state of the evidence, and I so agree.

“Considerable evidence is now accumulating that… reactive carbonyl products are… involved in the progression of diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders, diabetes, atherosclerosis, diabetic complications, reperfusion after ischemic surgery, hypertension, and inflammation” ((Ellis EM 2007).

AGES and carbonyls both induce “Glycation” reactions, which form compounds containing chemical bonds that generate cell-damaging free radicals.

diet-soda-2All this to say and perhaps at this point in our society ‘beg’ you to not purchase regular or even worse diet sodas, in particular if you have children that you love.  Poison is poison, is poison!

Let’s save our kids – even if the parents are addicted.  Help me help them……….

This is a plan for all to start –

GREEN TEA HELPER:

 green tea

Green  tea contains a plethora of health-influencing polyphenols and flavonoids.  Some of these plant compounds have been shown to improve the metabolism of forms of estrogen that have been associated with the increased risk of developing breast cancer.

POLYPHENOLS & SKIN HEALTH:

green teaResearchers have found that oral supplementation of polyphenols extracted from green tea can positively impact skin health by protecting it from the damaging effects of UV radiation.  The green tea based plant compounds perform this function by incorporating themselves into the skin and modulating inflammatory pathways, thereby reducing various markers of inflammation.
