How Many Eggs Can I Eat ?

CHOLESTEROL!

egs
That word scares many people who have ever heard about it or people who have had any heart related issues. Or diabetes.

Eggs have long been recognized as a source of high-quality protein. Continue reading “How Many Eggs Can I Eat ?”

Why Are Fulani People Trimmer Than Other Tribes?

fulaHave you noticed that some tribes in Nigeria or even certain people or group of people from around the world NEVER get fat? They can never get obese or overweight! Examples, in Nigeria here are the Fulanis, some part of the north. And if you are observant you will also notice that you rarely find overweight or obese people in most of our CORE villages where the village culture of natural eating has not been contaminated by influx of refined foods from foreign land brought in for the parents by their rich township dwellers!
The problem with the notion of dieting is that it does not address the lifestyle changes that need to be made in order to permanently take the weight off. Losing weight is not something that can be bought or sold. It is not a commodity. Sometimes the problem is cultural. We become trapped in old habits that have us eating unhealthy foods for a lifetime.

“Eating Sugar” Does Not cause Diabetes

diabetesMany of us grew up hearing it and believing it too. We were all scared of taking sweet things, especially real sugar in our drinks and some foods like custard, pap, oats etc. There was always this silent fear or even guilt when you are eating anything that is very sweet because in subconsciously you believe that you are deliberately causing some unknown problems to yourself.

Certainly intake of excessive sugar is not healthy just like excessive intake of any other foods, but its consumption is not the cause of diabetes.
I know that some of us would be surprised by this assertion. Yes. “Eating too much sugar” does not cause diabetes. I can almost hear you asking:

What Then Is The cause? Continue reading ““Eating Sugar” Does Not cause Diabetes”

Benefits Of Pineapple

pinIt wasn’t this common and cheap in Nigeria before.Not that Nigerians don’t like pineapple but ,it was not easily available and also affordable as it is now even in the cities.
I think the aggressive agricultural revolution is the reason behind this.Well,enough of that.Lets talk about what we can benefit from taking pineapple either whole or juice.I will also tell you how to prepare the juice and make it so refreshing.

BENEFITS
Pineapples have exceptional juiciness and a vibrant tropical flavor that balances the tastes of sweet and tart.Pineapple juice contains enzymes that can help digest proteins and offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Depending on whether you buy natural juice, or it has extra vitamin C added, just one serving of pineapple juice provides 30 to over 100 percent of your daily vitamin C. For the best health benefits, look for fresh ONES.

Tips For Handling Belly Fat

bfThis is a serious issue for many people and I am giving out the tips in my desire to have my readers get something of value they can do to get back in shape.One of the most common questions I get is how to lose belly fat and how to lose weight and have a flat tummy.

Belly fat is actually the most dangerous type of fat –apart from the cosmetic importance of a normal shaped body, large waist lines are indicators of disease.Nobody wants that,

Abdominal obesity, also known as beer belly, beer gut, pot belly or clinically as central obesity, is when excessive abdominal fat around the stomach and abdomen has built up to the extent that it is likely to have a negative impact on health.
There is a strong correlation between central obesity and cardiovascular disease. Abdominal obesity is not confined only to the elderly and obese subjects.
Abdominal obesity has been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease as well as other metabolic and vascular diseases.

Below are some tips:

1.Replace high calorie foods with low calorie alternatives.

2.Monitor portion sizes.Means you should mind the quantity of food you consume at a sitting.Like other body fat,they are the product of excessive carbohydrate consumption.

3.Perform a low intensity cardio workout at least four to five days a week for body fat reduction. Lower intensity aerobic workouts burn calories from fat, which results in an overall decrease in body fat. Aim to exercise for a minimum of 45 minutes each cardio workout session.

4.Follow a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, healthy fats and vegetables. Whole grains contain a higher fiber content which creates a full sensation in your stomach for longer periods of time. Heart-healthy monounsaturated fats found in foods like cashew nuts(Please check out our post about cashew nuts),Avocadoes,and salmon have been reported to assist in reducing body fat. Eating fruits and vegetables prevent you from overeating higher calorie foods to help keep your calorie consumption in control.

5.Learn how to manage stress.I know that this may sound out of order for some but i will explain it more in my coming report about how to beat belly fat.

I wrote a short report on hard core belly exercises anyone can do to have a flatter well toned abdomen in the shortest time.WATCH OUT on this page from Monday to grab your own copy if you need it.
