Weight Loss

I have to share with you a topic that is near and dear to my heart. It’s about the virtually unknown and hidden benefits of saturated fat. Doctors have it drummed into them that fats (in particular saturated fat) are bad for us. Whereas in fact certain fats are essential to survival and form part […]

Doesn’t everyone know the dangers of high fructose corn syrup to your health? Well, the food industry says it isn’t (yeah, right). The FDA (who are notoriously corrupt) hasn’t noticed anything! And the average doctor around the world (who hasn’t even tumbled that sugar is bad for health!)… When was the last time your doctor […]

The question about what foods you should eat every day is one of the most common that I receive. There are really two parts to the answer. The first part is ancient history. Before “civilization,” humans consisted on a basic hunter-gatherer diet. Most of the foods consumed were “gatherer” foods since the “hunter” aspect was […]

There have been decades of negative information about the side effects of artificial sweeteners regarding being cancer causing and completely toxic to your body. Artificial sweeteners have been linked to… Cancer Depression Metabolic syndrome Digestive disorders Neurodegenerative disease Chronic inflammation As if that wasn’t bad enough, there is new evidence that the two conditions they […]

I’ve talked extensively about the effects of sleep deprivation (you can read those articles here and here). Sleep is one of the most underappreciated ways to guard your health against disease. Research now confirms that getting enough sleep is key to maintaining a healthy bodyweight. Without it, your risk of obesity is higher and your […]

We are overdosing our bodies with food! Over the years, I’ve learned that some of our biggest health concerns come not from what you are lacking but what you are eating that your body doesn’t want or need. Portions in the developed countries of the world are ridiculous…it’s simply too much. Add to that the […]

Using caution while out in the sun does not mean avoiding it all together. The sun provides the impetus for your body to produce vitamin D – which you need to absorb calcium. A company in the United Kingdom – BetterYou – estimated that as much as 90% of the population could have dangerously low […]

LET’S TALK ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS! It’s one of the biggest industries in the world! There is a never ending stream of weight loss books, magazine articles, diet aids and propaganda. It’s not a stream, it’s actually a tidal wave. I’ve seen just about every claim that has been made: eat more of X, eat less […]

Connirae Andreas PhD, an internationally known trainer and researcher in NLP, coauthor of the marvelous book Heart Of The Mind, gives a very simple technique, which I have tried, taught others, and found to be valuable. She calls it the Naturally-Slender Eating Strategy! We all do different things in our minds, when we think about […]

My plan had been to do something else but this new diet study makes a very powerful point: The Mediterranean diet has been proved over and over again to be beneficial. Science is coming out of our ears to show it’s good for the heart and health in general. But what you probably don’t know […]

It’s a discovery and health secret that I put on par with anesthetics and antibiotics, not for the measure of it, but just the sheer NUMBERS of people it affects. It’s so common it virtually affects everyone! It’s the unsuspected enemy that gets missed in the field of health and nutrition. I am sure you […]

Whether you realize it or not, you’ve dealt with the symptoms and side effects of inflammation before. Perhaps you’ve had a cut or wound that’s become red and swollen as it heals. You can probably remember the pain as well as the heat given off by your afflicted body part. That is a classic sign […]

You know, science can be tricky. Even with the best intentions and complete honesty, facts emerge which make it look like someone has been fudging all along. Take obesity. There could be said to be a “science of obesity” today. We know a lot about it; including the metabolic syndrome, the dangers of belly fat, […]

No surprise there. Insurance actuaries have known for over half a century that obesity will shorten your life. They don’t wanna pay up; the study the odds in microscopic detail. But for me, now living in the USA, I’m astonished at how little this has been regarded and how estimates of the risk have been […]
