Energy and Food and What you need to know?

Health and Wealth

Hi everyone, how are you today? Today we are going to be talking about energy and food and how they both keep our bodies going. Always consult with your do it or trusted physician if you have any concerns before changing your regular diet or taking new supplements.

Eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep are the best ways to maintain your natural energy levels. The worst foods to eat for sustained energy are high-sugar foods because they cause your blood sugar to quickly rise, triggering the release of too much insulin, which triggers a plunge in blood sugar levels, AKA a sugar crash. When you have a sugar crash the body literally shuts down. Think of when you eat a really big meal? What do you normally do after you eat? Do you lay down? Go for a walk? The body is a literal machine and we only get one and I’m here to help you take care of it.

 Energy comes from the food we eat. Our bodies digest the food we eat by mixing it with fluids (acids and enzymes) in the stomach. Common reasons for tiredness or fatigue  allergic rhinitis, anemia, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic kidney disease, liver disease, lung disease (COPD), a bacterial or viral infection, or some other health condition. Fatigue may result from overwork, poor sleep, worry, boredom, or lack of exercise.

About 70 percent of your body’s iron is found in the red blood cells of your blood called hemoglobin and in muscle cells called myoglobin. Normal levels of iron are between 33.5 and 44.9% for adult women and 38.3 to 48.6% for adult men. For information check out https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/iron-deficiency-anemia/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355040

Myoglobin: a protein found in the muscle cells of animals

Herbs that may help with iron: Yellow dock, Dandelion, Stinging nettle, Alfalfa, and Parsley

Do’s and Don’ts:

Do eat breakfast: Eating breakfast sets the tone for the day and helps you choose better options throughout the day. Foods for energy in the morning include oatmeal ( regular oatmeal with nut butter, greek yogurt or cottage cheese), protein rich options with vegetables are also a good option.

Don’t go hungry: Eating regular meals and snacks helps keep your energy at an even level, without highs and lows. Eating every 3-5 hours (three small meals and two snacks).

As someone who is rebuilding there relationship with food I understand how this may seem hard but I will be making a separate post on portion sizes and how can heal your relationship with food.

Do eat fat: Your body needs a regular intake of fat which helps with energy levels and helps the body absorb some key nutrients.

Don’t forget about water: It is recommended to aim for at least 6 to 8 cups daily, but generally people need more, especially if you exercise. Never stress yourself over water though ,drink when you are thirsty. In the age of the Internet their are drinking water apps, have an accountability partner or even set alarms as your reminder to drink water.

Do check your iron: Iron deficiency can lead to feelings of fatigue, both physically and mentally. 

Don’t eat too many processed foods: Choose an apple with 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter, or plain low-fat Greek yogurt sprinkled with a few chopped walnuts.

DIY FLAVORED WATER RECIPES: ( if you need help drinking water or want to spice it up)

You will need a regular pitcher or anything you keep water in. Each batch will make around 4 servings. For each recipe you will need 5 cups of water and ice cubes if you are into that kind of thing.

Strawberry, basil and lemon: 1/2 cup strawberries stemmed and sliced, fresh or frozen / 5 large fresh basil leaves torn / 1 lemon sliced

Honeydew, cucumber and mint: 1/2 cup honeydew cubes, 1 cucumber thinly sliced and 10 fresh mint leaves torn

Blueberries, lemon, and rosemary: 1/2 pint blueberries / 1 lemon sliced / 4 springs rosemary

Mango, raspberry and ginger: 1 mango peeled and cubed / 1/2 pint raspberries / 1 ( 2inch) piece fresh ginger peeled and thinly sliced

Storage: You can leave the fruits, vegetables, and fresh herbs in the water for up to 24 hours. After that, remove them and store the infused water in the refrigerator for up to 3 more days (4 days total).

Make ahead: Infuse water the night before a party so it has plenty of time to flavor and chill the water.

How to live an Anti-inflammatory lifestyle

Health and Wealth

Inflammation is a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection . It’s mainly a reaction from your immune system. Today we are going to learn simple steps that may help you on your journey in wellness.

What’s at the root of chronic inflammation?

An imbalanced immune system contributes to chronic inflammation by sending your body misdirected signals. Inflammatory cells are very powerful (this helps get rid of invaders before they can do harm) and produce a constant, low-grade flow of strong inflammatory markers into the blood stream that can cause damage with time.

To start with brush and floss your teeth regularly. Wellness is not just the absence of disease, but the presence of vitality and health. This is also true when it comes to oral wellness. Just because you don’t have any cavities, doesn’t mean you’ve achieved oral wellness. Making sure your mouth is in sync with your entire body is a process and a routine.

Audit your diet. Choosing the right foods can help your body by blocking certain stages in the inflammatory cascade or by removing toxic by-products.

Anti-inflammatory foods include:

👉🏾dark berries (including blueberries and blackberries)

👉🏾red wine (in moderation a glass a day)
spinach

👉🏾dark chocolate (a square or two a day, and be sure it’s not processed with alkali because this greatly reduces the major antioxidant flavanol)

Turmeric Elixir:

👉🏾2 teaspoons organic dried turmeric (or fresh turmeric if it’s available)

👉🏾1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

👉🏾1-2 tablespoons lemon rind (from unwaxed organic lemon)

👉🏾1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (depending on desired taste)

👉🏾2 cups water (or coconut water if you want it sweeter)

👉🏾1-2 tablespoons raw organic honey to taste (you can use organic maple syrup as an alternative).

Blend all these ingredients into a bright orange solution. Store in the refrigerator up to 5 days freeze up to 3 months

Add Turmeric to your diet: Turmeric contains curcumin, which extinguishes inflammation by shutting off pro-inflammatory markers and reducing free radicals. Turmeric can be consumed in food, as a tea, in capsules or in a solution.

Cut out chemicals: Exposure to pesticides and preservatives causes inflammation by invading cells and destroying tissue.Be especially careful with cleaning products. There are many natural options that are effective and much less toxic to you and your family. Stick to homemade food instead of highly-processed foods that come in plastic containers.

Get regular exercise: Regular exercise reduces inflammation very effectively by improving circulation and lymphatic flow, and reducing body fat. You can do any type of exercise as long as it gets your heart pumping. Set a goal to work out for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week and work up to it bit by bit.

Have a stress routine: When you are stressed out have a routine with healthy coping mechanisms that will help you stay on track. Inflammation is also triggered in response to stress and anxiety. The more stress in your life, the more likely it is you’re headed towards an inflamed state. Consider starting a meditation program or try journaling every night both help release stress.

Always consult with your do it or trusted physician if you have any concerns before changing your regular diet or taking new supplements.

    Health and Wealth

    Weight loss and a safe way to get started! Hi everyone and welcome back for another day of learning today we are going to be talking about weight loss.

    Weight loss: Become thinner or lighter according to the dictionary but I believe it should feeling comfy in your own skin from the inside out. Here are a few ways to lose weight naturally.

    What causes weight gain?

    Sometimes, you may unintentionally gain weight without increasing your food intake or decreasing your physical activities. This may either be periodic, rapid, or continuous. Weight gain can happen from diabetes, a not so well balanced diet, pcos or even genetics. Certain medications like corticosteroids, antidepressants, birth control pills, and antipsychotic drugs are known to cause weight gain.

    What is BMI ( Body Mass Index )?

    Body Mass Index (BMI) is your weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. Standard BMI levels are:

    A BMI of less than 18.5 indicates that you are underweight.

    A BMI between 18.5–24.9 means that you have a healthy weight.

    A BMI of 25-29.9 indicates that you are slightly overweight.

    A BMI above 30 is considered obese.

    You should consult with a medical herbalist / doctor if you have concerns about your weight/weight loss. Although all of these herbs are safe to use on the , some people can be allergic or sensitive to certain plants which can cause dermatitis or allergic reactions.

    THIS POST WILL CONTAIN LINKS FROM MY ONLINE STORE

    Number 1 is love yourself!

    Number 2 is add protein to your diet.

    Because the body burns calories when digesting and metabolizing the protein you eat, so a high-protein diet can boost metabolism. High protein foods include poultry, eggs, guava, green peas, avocado and even mushrooms.

    Number 3 is avoid processed foods.

    Now I do enjoy Wendys every now and then bu with weight loss all the extra junk needs to go.

    Number 4 is stock up on healthy foods and snacks.

    There are also many healthy and natural snacks that are easy to prepare and take with you on the go.These include yogurt, whole fruit, nuts, carrots, and hard-boiled eggs. Be careful not to eat too much fruit because the sugar will add up.

    Number 5 is supplement with Glucomannan.

    Glucomannan is a dietary fiber usually made from the root of the konjac plant. It’s historically been used as food and medicine in Asian cultures. Glucomannan may work in the stomach and intestines by absorbing water to form a bulky fiber which helps with constipation. It may also slow the absorption of sugar and cholesterol in the gut, helping control sugar levels in people with diabetes and reduce cholesterol levels.

    Side effects: Some people may experience mild side effects, such as bloating, flatulence, soft stools or diarrhea, but these negative effects are uncommon. Glucomannan can also reduce the absorption of oral medications like sulfonylurea, a diabetes drug.

    Number 6 is drinking honey and key limes first thing in the morning.

     Drinking warm water with honey, along with a tinge of key limes in the morning could be an effective anti-cellulite treatment, as it helps to increase your body’s metabolism, burn belly fat, and reduce weight gain. 

    Take one cup of warm water and then squeeze half a key lime into it. Mix two teaspoons of honey and drink it happily. Drink one to two cups of this mixture throughout the day.

    Number 7 is drinking hibiscus tea.

    Drinking hibiscus tea will help in regulating the metabolism of lipids and is also useful in eliminating fat from your body.  

    Hibiscus tea is very effective in reducing the size of fat cells and balancing your weight.

    From someone who is working on stress eating it’s important to learn your body and be open to what your stomach is really saying. It is absolutely okay to not be hungry sometimes. Remember that your body is like a machine and sometimes it needs a little extra rest.

    Number 9 is practice yoga ands exercise everyday.

    Getting your body moving for at least 30 minutes a day even by just walking can help your body in more ways then one. Yoga benefits include increased flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, improved respiration, energy and vitality, maintaining a balanced metabolism, weight reduction, and cardio and circulatory health. Youtube has hundreds of intro videos on yoga and how to get started.

    More tips for weight loss with less explanation:

    Say no to allergens ; Sensitivities to certain foods cause inflammation in the gut, water retention and bloating. Allergens are the wheat or dairy in your diet.

    Eat one raw meal everyday for two weeks or at least once or twice a week. This ensures that you eat more nutrient-rich fresh vegetables and fruits.

    Eat slower and properly in some studies it is said that you should chew 20 chews per mouthful. Put down your fork and make you’ve swallowed before taking another bite to eat.

    Use coconut oil ; Coconut oil contains healthy fats called medium chain triglycerides that your body uses quickly for energy, but doesn’t raise the level of sugar in your blood stream.

    Keep breakfast regular ; If you eat breakfast regularly and then start cutting it out occasionally, you may feel hungry but it will also stop you from overeating at subsequent meals. Even having a hearty smoothie can be a great replacement.

    Weight Watchers Fact or Fiction

    Health and Wealth

    Hey everyone, today we are learning about weight watchers. Weight watchers is a points system weight loss program that calculates your personal nutrition needs based on your height, weight, age, and activity level. Your assigned daily points are designed with the goal of tracking what you eat. Every food as a point value members are instructed to use the allotted points per day, without going over or under.

    When I was growing up weight watchers was everywhere from tv shows to movies everyone knew about it. Known as a wellness brand but do they really cover all the bases. Some would like to think that deep down its just another diet that sucks people dry. In 2018 weight watchers rebranded as WW International with a new moto wellness that works.

    With over 4.7 million people subscribed and a spokesperson like Auntie Oprah it would seem like they have some secret to success. In my opinion with benefits like online support in the form of dietary advice, dieting tools, a database of food/recipes, fitness videos and workout routines keeps people coming back. Weight watchers has also made a partnership with Headspace to provide guided meditations and provide more mental health content. In my opinion most of the hype comes from the celebrities they sign these deals with but the question to ask is are they really following the diet?

    Pros and Cons

    Pros:

    Weight watchers does not restrict the types of food a person can eat

    Community based program may be helpful if you need support during lifestyle change ( meetings happen in person/online)

    Weight watchers provides meal planning, recipes, and workout suggestions on its app

    Cons:

    Plans offering support are more expensive

    Members must keep track of every item they eat or drink ( counting may seem tiring)

    It’s easy to put back on the weight

    Food can become a number, which can lead to a disordered relationship with food / Can encourage binge eating

    Bad foods have higher foods

    Frequently asked questions about Weight Watchers

    How much weight can you lose weight on weight watchers?

    Members can expect to lose 1-2 lb per week. A person’s success with Weight Watchers can vary depending on how closely they follow their plan, how often they attend WW meetings, and whether they stick to their plan during the maintenance period after reaching their weight loss goal.

    The cost?

    The Digital plan starts at $3.38/week ($13.52 per month). This plan is for people who basically want to do the program on their own. 

    The Digital 360 plan starts at $4.61/week ($18.44 per month). This plan contains all of the features of the Digital plan, and is for those who want more guided support. 

    These prices were documented back in 2021 but prices have said to change according to there website.
