Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is not a form of starvation but a way for you to time your meals to maximize your body’s ability to burn fat.

Low Calorie Diets and Water

A very grueling topic for people to amply realize is when it comes to their low calorie die,t is that they should be drinking more water. Why water?  Why can’t you drink whatever you desire? There is one big reason for this on this type of diet or any diet. All types of drinks, except plain old water (preferably Alkaline Water), have calories. These calories are hidden and are the worst way for you to consume your calorie intake on, for the day. Think about this this. Would you prefer to eat a few more vegetables or fill up on a few more ounces of chicken or would you like to drink a can of soda? When you can in effect learn to give up drinking wasted calories and drink ionized water, you will save yourself cherished calories to use properly in your diet.
When you are dieting, calories are not easy to come by. You truly need to cut them out wherever you can , and that includes calories in the beverages that you drink A can of soda or pop will contain any where from fifty calories well up into the one hunded to two hundred plus range, also they are very high in sodium . Something else to consider is just what are you getting for those calories. You don’t get a full sensation in your stomach so you are still hungry. There is not much of a lasting taste as it is normally gone inside a few seconds.  You do get caffeine, sugars, sodium, and even fats that you definitely don’t need or want .

To make water from an Alkaline Water Ionizer a more tasty option, add something to it.  A uncomplicated yet effective way to do this is to just add some lemon or lime or even vitamin c crystals into your water. You should be drinking about threequarts/litres of ionized water per day. If your not sure how much fluid you consume , each morning fill a container in the refrigerator with three litres/quarts. If you don’t finish it, you haven’t consumed your alkaline water for the day. By the time you have learned to replace your drinks with ionized water , you will have saved consuming a lot of empty calories.

The Many Benefits Of The Detox Diet

In this day and age, while some things may possibly be easier, other things are much harder.

Can Fasting Be a Danger To You?

Is it healthy to be fasting for 30 days or even one day ? When most people hear this they think, “Oh my god, you shouldn’t do that. It’s not good for your health, etc…”

The truth is that fasting is one of greatest things you can do for your body . Maybe doing a 30-day water fast is extreme for most people but even a 1-day fast can have marked benefits to your health and power to lose weight.

I personally know some people who have had some bad eczema and psoriasis on their bodies for several years – even though they eats as clean a diet as you can get.

However, during a water fast their hands had cleared up and become softer than ever after just 4 or 5 days!

For most people, fasting goes against the paradigm that says that nutrients from food provides what you need to grow and flourish.

So how can you benefit from fasting ?

Even Hippocrates, the great grandfather of modern medicine, refused to work with any of his proteges until they had completed a 60-day water fast!

His logical thinking…

When you fast, you clear your body and your mind. As a result, you are more focused, can think more clearly, and act consequently.

The reality is that if you’ve never fasted, you genuinely have no idea about what it’s all about. Sharing your point of view is really a waste of time because you haven’t experienced it firsthand and have not experienced the unbelievable body and mind transformations that can occur when your body doesn’t have to worry about digesting food.

Fasting (for any length of time) is healthful because it allows your body to focus its energy on breaking down “problems” within it and regenerating what needs to be repaired.

Usually, when we stuff our body with food throughout the day, most of our body’s vital energy is spent on digestion. In most cases, up to 80% of our energy is spent on this difficult process.

That doesn’t leave much time or energy for the body to go through its much needed maintenance and repair.

So I know it sounds counter-intuitive but the reality is that fasting has been around since the beginning of time and is even practiced by every single religion in the world.

If you’re new to fasting, you’ll obviously want to double check with your physician (knowing that they’ll most likely tell you that you’re crazy) before starting.

I would recommend beginning with a simple 1-day water fast. Eat and drink nothing but water for just one day .

If you feel better throughout the day or even the next day, that’s a good sign.

You may experience some side effects like headaches or anxiety caused by the absense of caffeine and sugar in your diet .

Remember, fasting is not easy. It requires commitment and determination. But if you are up for a challenge that can dramatically better your health then give it a shot. After fasting, why not try a raw food diet to get on the right track!


Detoxamin/Wow Did I Finally Find It?

I don’t want to get too excited,  but it would appear,  that the wonder suppositories,  have arrived? That is,  Detoxamin,  the new heavy metal chelation therapy,  delivered,  via a suppository. Very Cool,  and seemingly the answer to a very complex problem, and kudos  to those that have figured this out,  especially,  if there are no side affects? As you may,  or may not know,  I have been detoxing,  from what I believe to be mercury toxicity,  as I have every symptom listed for it? I am now in the middle of massive detoxification,  and the removal,  of what were 15 mercury dental amalgam fillings,  now being replaced with composite fillings. I have so far had one quarter of my mouth done, the lower left,  so,  about 12 more fillings  to be removed.

I have been mostly doing the natural detoxification methods,  of supplementing with cilantro and chlorella, I use  cilantro, frozen cubes, fresh daily in my smoothie and as a spice on foods,  also tincture,  from the health food store. The chlorella is a very interesting food source,  and I have tried every kind available,  and tend to feel that the powdered form  is the most beneficial, I also tend to take more of everything then they suggest as I have always had a high tolerance to everything, but this is very personal,  and one must study and learn the affects of certain treatments for them. I do believe that this is a learned technique that anyone  can do.

I am looking forward to my second 1000 mg dose, I just wanted to say,  that I believe,  Detoxamin,  holds a lot of promise,  towards us being able to remove heavy metals from our system effectively/Do your own research at


Insure Your Own Health…….Indeed!

Let’s face it, it’s not rocket science, you are what you eat, and if you sit around and do nothing and eat, YOU GET FAT! That’s just one of the problems, than you got all that emotional stuff to deal with, and that can cause some health issues too! Wow, makes ya want to give up already doesn’t it ? Well,  bottom line is,  I have been lucky in all this, that being, that my Dad was a fitness freak after the war, yeah the old ww2,  he even went on as a member of Provincial Parliament in Ontario, Canada  in the early 60’s to push a form of universal exercise care for all Canadians, but they didn’t buy it! Anyway that thinking rubbed off on me 😉

So fast forward to 2010, dad is 95 and still bitching about his bad back, and mom at 88 in a few days,  still looks after both of them, as in totally,  food , driving,  you name it! Point is, I am fortunate to be blessed with old age in my family, and thus feel compelled to write about both the virtues of it,  as well as all the advancements in human longevity that are coming at us from all directions?

Somewhere  in here,  lies my undying belief, that we control our own health destiny.

I feel really strong about our ability to know what foods work for us, and what food’s do not, and that we all have this ability, we just need to become aware of it, and get used to what feeling good really feels like 😉

You have to GET MAD at FEELING BAD! Do not accept it! Learn to feel great, become aware of the difference, it is that easy, just pay attention to your tummy…..dummy 😉

I’ll explain myself more later but for now sign up, get your free tips on living old and healthy and get out there and get some exercise, preferably doing something you love to do 😉

You will then be on your way to healthy and happy longevity 😉
