30 Simple Fat Loss Tip

fatlossTIPS

I put together some Simple Fat Loss Tips to help you lose body fat efficiently and lose weight effectively (and more importantly, keep it off).

Instead of a primary focus on losing weight or fat loss, focus on becoming as healthy as possible way down to the cellular level.

What matters is making smarter and healthier choices and finding what works best for you so you can experience your highest level of health not just physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Everything’s connected and integrated: spirit, mind, emotions and body. If there is a problem in one area, it will affect the other areas as well. The diet mentality is futile. You can only look as good on the outside as you are healthy on the inside. Make choices based on what will make you healthier today, tomorrow and for the rest of your life.

30 Simple Fat Loss Tips That Can Be Used Daily
By following these simple tips, you’ll drop body fat, boost your metabolism and ultimately change your body without counting calories, dieting or deprivation. And as an added bonus, you will increase vitality and longevity, prevent disease and live a healthy vibrant life.Foods and Beverages – What to include

1. Stabilize insulin and balance blood sugar with a balanced diet that includes nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich real foods using the PVFC method: Protein (organic grass-fed and pasture-raised meats, eggs, wild salmon, clean fish, quality protein powders), Veggies and leafy greens, Fat and Carbs (sweet potato, yams, quinoa, low sugar fruits such as berries)

2. Plenty of organic, pasture-raised protein to boost your metabolism, supply your body with amino acids to balance brain chemistry and reduce sugar cravings, healthy, healing fats, especially omega-3 sources to eliminate cravings, provide a sense of satiety and increase fat loss and plenty of fiber from leafy greens and colorful veggies.

3. Practice portion control with mindfulness during mealtime. Sit down during mealtime without distractions. No cell phones, computers, television. Chew every bite of food slowly and thoroughly.

4. Filtered water to stay hydrated. Start your day with a cup of water with the juice from a fresh lemon or lime plus a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to increase metabolism.

5. Unsweetened, organic green tea or coffee before your workout or after eating breakfast to encourage fat loss.

6. Eat a protein-rich breakfast. Include protein at every meal.

7. Prepare your environment at home and work with healthy options to minimize temptation.

8. Rotate the foods you eat every day.

Diet No-Nos: Avoid and Eliminate

9. Foods you’re intolerant or sensitive to reduce inflammation, cravings and bloating. The top culprits include wheat, gluten, sugar, artificial sweeteners, soy, corn and pasteurized dairy. However, even so-called healthy foods can be problematic for you if you eat the same thing day after day after day.

10. Super-sized portions, eating mindlessly and late night eating.

11. Chemically-laden processed, packaged and junk foods. Any product containing high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners, which increase cravings and your waist line.

12. Processed carbohydrates, wheat and grains. Ditch the nutritionally-void bagels, breads, muffins, crackers and pasta, even if they are labeled as gluten-free.

13. Liquid calories from soda, energy and sports drinks, fruity smoothies and excess alcohol.

14. GMO fats: margarine, vegetable oils, soybean oil, cooking sprays, canola oil, hydrogenated and trans fats.

15. Low-fat and non-fat foods, which are full of chemicals, artificial sweeteners and sugar.

Exercise

16. Move your body every single day.

17. Walk outdoors in nature every day.

18. Metabolic resistance training with weights three times weekly to encourage greater fat loss. Follow the 12-Week exercise program found in Fat Loss Revolution

19. Shorter, more effective workouts – intensity trumps duration for fat loss. Instead of jogging for 30-40 minutes, opt for a 12-15 minute interval workout. Interval programs can be found in The Power of 4 and Fat Loss Revolution. Also check out this 10-5-5 Workout, Sprint the Stairs and the Smart Workout.

20. Balance more intense workouts with rest days and parasympathetic activities such as walking, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, restorative, yin or gentle yoga.

Lifestyle 

21. Prioritize 7-9 hours of restful, uninterrupted sleep every night. Lights out and in bed by 10:30 p.m. at the latest.

22. Practice daily de-stressors: Practice deep, full breathing, meditation or restorative yoga, read something spiritual, spend time in nature, garden, do something you love and enjoy. Indulge in a massage, Epsom salt bath or sauna for relaxation and detoxification.

23. Make time for yourself. Avoid non-stop busyness and endless commitments.

24. Wake up every single day with a grateful mindset and appreciative attitude. Keep a gratitude journal.

25. Minimize or avoid toxic situations and people who sabotage your fat loss lifestyle. Fat loss is contagious. If your friend or spouse overeat, there’s a 57% higher tendency that you’ll overeat as well. Surround yourself with like-minded people who support your healthy lifestyle.

26. Get your mindset on the right track. Priorities, values, thoughts, emotions and attitude are all factors in your personal success in losing weight.

27. Unplug! Less television, iPads, computer, social media.

28. Stand more and sit less.

29. Start with two healthy changes each week until they become a habit. Gradually add another healthy habit each week. This is the concept of my book, The Power of 4. Be willing to invest the time, energy, commitment and resources to succeed.

30. Take it one day at a time. Value and focus on the positive progress along your journey toward health. Realize that setbacks may occur during the process. Resume your intention and focus on getting right back on track. See your transformation as progressive – a journey vs. perfection. Believe in yourself! Love yourself!

The American Cancer Society Exposed

American_Cancer_Society_lies

BY CHRISTINA SARICH

Does your insurance cover the latest cancer drug that costs $159 to make, but sells for $106,000? The cost of cancer drugs has skyrocketed lately by more than 5000%, and this is not the exception, but the rule. Despite this gob-smacking display of greed, we continue to finance not only the pharmaceutical industry, but ‘charitable organizations’ that are nothing more than wolves in sheep’s clothing. [1]

The American Cancer Society (ACS) which has a cure rate of about 2.1%, receives more money in contributions every 10 minutes than the Independent Cancer Research Foundation (ICRF) receives in a whole year. ICRF arguably has cure rates closer to 90%.

Why do we continue to fund a fraud? Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Professor Emeritus for Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the University of Illinois, School of Public Health, has a few ideas about why we give our money to thieves who are more interested in their next private jet or private island than saving lives. He’s written a 100-page paper on the disgusting habits of the ACS.

The Wealthiest ‘Non-Profit’ in the World

Granted, half of the cancer charities that AIP rates in a Charity Rating Guide receive a D or F grade and only 37% receive an A or B, but the ACS should fall off the scale. The ACS is the world’s wealthiest ‘nonprofit’ institution. THE WEALTHIEST. [2]

According to James Bennett, professor of economics at George Mason University and recognized authority on charitable organizations, the ACS held a fund balance of over $400 million with about $69 million of holdings in land, buildings, and equipment in 1988. Of that money, the ACS spent only $90 million— 26% of its budget— on medical research and programs. [3]

The rest covered “operating expenses,” including about 60% for generous salaries, pensions, executive benefits, and overhead. By 1989, the cash reserves of the ACS were worth more than $700 million. This does not account for the sharply-climbing prices of cancer and other drugs in the past two decades. [4]

Despite having more money than any other charitable organization, the ACS bears a major responsibility for losing the winnable war against cancer. Hundreds of alternative methods for treating cancer are ignored. That ‘non-profit’ title should be stripped from them.

Who Funds the ACS?

The ACS is in bed with just about every major player in the cancer-is-money-scheme. Their ties to Big Pharma, Big Ag, Big Biotech, and Big Food are all apparent in Dr. Epstein’s paper:

  • The ACS has a committee which seeks to destroy all non-patentable, non-toxic, generally cheap therapies, in favor of expensive, toxic chemotherapy and drug remedies alone.
  • The ACS is also bedfellows with the mammography industry.
  • The ACS is supported handsomely by the biotech industry.
  • The ACS is also supported by the cosmetics industry.
  • Junk food companies donate heavily to the ACS.
  • Petrochemical companies donate to the ACS.
  • Pharmaceutical companies like Astra Zeneca are directly promoted through the ACS.

The ACS, along with the National Cancer Institute, almost exclusively focus on cancer research and the diagnosis and the chemical treatment of cancer. Preventive strategies, such as avoiding environmental toxins (found in products like cosmetics or cleaning products), changing one’s diet, and reducing exposure to pesticides receive virtually no consideration at all.

Epstein writes:

“Giant corporations, which profited handsomely while they polluted air, water, the workplace, and food with a wide range of carcinogens, remain greatly comforted by the silence of the ACS. This silence reflected a complex of mindsets fixated on diagnosis, treatment, and basic genetic research, together with ignorance, indifference, and even hostility to prevention. Not surprisingly, the incidence of cancer over past decades has escalated, approximately parallel to its increased funding.”

The next new cancer drug is just around the corner, and you can bet it won’t be cheap…or effective. After more than forty years mainstream medicine still offers less than a 3% cure rate over 5 years. Why? Well, the sad reality is that it’s too profitable for us to stay sick.

In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. Approximately $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39% increase to $173 billion by 2020. The ACS is the ghost in the machine running this mayhem.

Ditch the ACS, and urge your company to stop donating to them. The wealthiest ‘charity’ on the planet doesn’t need another red cent from another cancer patient. Your health is priceless; don’t sell it to the corporate profiteers.

Having Low Cholesterol Can Harm Your Health

Low-CholesterolBy Sayer Ji

You’ve heard for decades about the dangers of high cholesterol, but did you know that LOW cholesterol can lead to violence towards self and other, and has been linked to premature aging, death and other adverse health effects?

In a world gone mad with anti-cholesterol anxiety, and where gobbling down pharmaceuticals designed to poison the body into no longer synthesizing it is somehow considered sane behavior, it is refreshing to look at some of the research on the health benefits of cholesterol, or conversely, the dangers of low cholesterol.

Benefits of Cholesterol

Cholesterol Is Needed To Prevent Aggression

It has been known for almost 30 years that low serum cholesterol levels are associated with habitually violent tendencies of homicidal offenders under the influence of alcohol.[i] Since then, there are at least 8 other studies that have either confirmed or explored the cholesterol-violence link, including both violence towards self and other. One of the possible explanations for this association was discussed in an article published in the British Journal of Psychiatry in 1993: “One of the functions of serotonin in the central nervous system is the suppression of harmful behavior impulses…Low membrane cholesterol decreases the number of serotonin receptors. Since membrane cholesterol exchanges freely with cholesterol in the surrounding medium, a lowered serum cholesterol concentration may contribute to a decrease in brain serotonin, with poorer suppression of aggressive behavior”. Not surprisingly, several reports have now surfaced on cholesterol-lowering statin drugs contributing to irritability and/or aggression.

Cholesterol Is Needed To Fight Cancer

The inverse relationship between cholesterol levels and the risk for a variety of cancers, and mortality associated with cancer, has been known about since the late 80’s. Since then, the cholesterol-cancer connection has been confirmed over and over again. It is to be expected, therefore, that statin drug use would be linked with increased cancer incidence, which indeed it is.[iv] Even when you take so-called “bad” LDL-cholesterol and administer it to a culture of highly malignant, multi-drug resistant leukemia cells, the cells lose their resistance to chemotherapy. Not exactly what can be characterized as a “bad” substance now is it?

Cholesterol Is Needed To Prevent Hemorrhagic Stroke

There are two types of stroke:

1) Ischemic, associated with lack of blood flow and oxygen to the brain

2) Hemorrhagic, associated with the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain, and bleeding.

The risk for the former, in theory, could be raised in the presence of excessive oxidized cholesterol. However, it is the risk for the second, hemorrhagic stroke, which is increased when cholesterol levels are low. Noted as far back as 1994 in the British Medical Journal, in an article titled, “Assessing possible hazards of reducing serum cholesterol,” researchers found “The only cause of death attributable to low serum cholesterol concentration was haemorrhagic stroke.” Other studies can be viewed that confirm this association on our stroke-cholesterol link page.

Cholesterol Is Needed for Memory

Low HDL cholesterol has been identified as a risk factor for deficit and decline in memory in midlife. Even in Parkinson’s disease, higher total serum cholesterol concentrations are associated with slower clinical progression of the disease. Statin drugs, which inhibit the production of cholesterol, hence severely affecting the brain, are now required by the FDA to display the black box warning that they may adversely affect the memory. We have indexed over 50 studies from the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic database, Medline, on the neurotoxicity of statin drugs, with six of these specifically addressing statin-induced memory impairment.

Cholesterol is Needed for Longevity

In a fascinating study published in PLoS in 2011, telomere length – the shoestring cap-like ends of the chromosomes which prevent DNA damage associated with cellular aging – was linked to higher LDL and total cholesterol levels. The longer the length of these protective caps, the higher the cholesterol. Indeed, several studies indicate that lower cholesterol is associated with increased mortality.

Cholesterol Helps Us Fight Infection

It has been observed that a cholesterol-rich diet improves patients with tuberculosis, leading researchers to suggest “cholesterol should be used as a complementary measure in antitubercular treatment.” Cholesterol-lowering drugs, incidentally, exhibit immunosuppressive and potent immunotoxic properties, likely in part due to their cholesterol depleting effects.

Given that cholesterol is essential for all animal life and that each cell is capable of synthesizing it from simpler molecules, we should not be surprised by examples provided above of cholesterol’s significant health benefits. Nor should it be surprising that cholesterol-lowering drugs have over 300 adverse health effectsFor now, suffice it to say, that conventional medical practice would do well to receive instruction from basic principles of biology, rather than simply the drug-company marketing copy it increasingly falls prey to.

The Many Uses and Benefits of Bentonite Clay

bentonite

Bentonite clay is an ancient healing clay used by cultures throughout history for their ability to rid the body of toxins. Bentonite clay helps to get oxygen to cells by removing excess hydrogen and allowing it to be replaced by oxygen. It has been used for years for both internal and external detoxification and for its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-yeast and general disinfectant properties.

How Bentonite Clay Works

Bentonite clay is compromised mostly of negative ions. Toxins and heavy metals in the body are made of positive ions. Bentonite clay works like a magnet that bonds to toxins and helps to eliminate it out of the body.

Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. 

Bentonite clay is a common ingredient used in detox and cleansing products. It has an alkalizing effect on the body and when taken correctly, it can help balance gut bacteria.

The common uses for Bentonite Clay are:

  1. Used on the Skin to Heal Eczema, Dermatitis & Psoriasis
  2. Used in the Bath as a Soaking Liquid to Remove Toxins
  3. Allows Internal and External Cells to Receive More Oxygen
  4. Alkalizes the Body
  5. Boosts Probiotics
  6. Relieves Digestive Problems (constipation, IBS, nausea, etc.)
  7. Boosts Immunity by Killing Harmful Bacteria and Viruses
  8. Improves the Health of Teeth and Gums
  9. Moisturize, Condition and Feeds Hair
  10. Healthy Alternative to Baby Powder

 Bentonite have a high concentration of minerals including silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and potassium.

There are two main types of Bentonite clay:

  1. Sodium Bentonite, when activated by water, can swell up to six times its size and has a electromagnetic properties. This makes it very absorbent and helpful for drawing out toxins.
  2. Calcium Bentoniteparticles are smaller compared to Sodium Bentonite, which makes it more effective for re-mineralizing than drawing toxins out of the skin. These small particles can pass through the colon wall into the bloodstream where it gets rid of toxins and leaves minerals behind.

 

How to use Bentonite Clay:

  • On the Skin: Apply a paste of bentonite clay and water on any skin irritation like blemishes, insect bites, cuts, skin itching, or burns. You can leave it on until it dries for 5 – 15 minutes before washing it off. This is very calming to skin itching from eczema, psoriasis, chicken pox, etc.
  • Skin Poultice for Bites/Burns/Cuts/Stings: For more severe issues, simply create a poultice by putting a thick layer of clay on the skin and applying a wet gauze or cloth over it. You can also wrap the area and leave the poultice on, changing every 2 hours.
  • Face Mask: For smooth and healthy skin, make a paste of bentonite and water and apply to your face as a mask (a similar mask is used in many spas). You can leave it on for 20 – 40 minutes and wash off. It’s so safe and effective you can y do this once or three times a week.
  • Detox Bath: Wanna detox your entire body? Simply add about 1/4 cup of Bentonite Clay to a bath for a relaxing detox bath that softens skin.
  • For Oral Health: Due to its excellent ability to bind to heavy metals and toxins as well as to provide minerals, It can even be used as toothpaste for brushing your teeth and is tasteless.
  • Oral Rinse to whiten teeth: Simply mix with water to act as an alkalizing and toxin removing mouth rinse. Just mix 1/2 teaspoon of clay in 1/4 cup water in a small cup with lid and shake well. Rinse month with solution for 1-2 minutes and repeat until it’s all used up.
  • For Mastitis:Create a poultice or mask of Bentonite Clay and water and applied externally to the area. You can repeat as needed every hour until the infection is gone. You can also take it internally during infection along with 2000mg of Vitamin.
  • For Baby Powder: Avoid using those harmful talcum powders. Plain Bentonite Clay makes a very soothing baby powder for use when there is a diaper infection or redness. It can also be made into a clay “mask” to help speed recovery in this area.
  • For Internal Cleansing: Looking for an internal detox? Pour 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Bentonite Clay in 8 ounces of water, mix and drink.. This can also improve digestion in addition to giving you more energy.
  • For Pets: For fur kids who are sick, vomiting or showing signs of illness, you can add Bentonite to their water or mix and give orally with a dropper or syringe without the needle. We have wittness several cases where this helped pets recover quickly from what could otherwise have been serious illnesses.

IMPORTANT: Do not let Bentonite come in to contact with anything metal because this will reduce its effectiveness. If you take it internally, do not take within an hour of eating. Do not take within 2 hours of medications or supplements. If you are going to take it internally always check with your doctor, especially if you have any medical condition.

 

Now that you know the healing benefits and uses of bentonite clay I bet you’re ready to run out and buy some! Wait! Not so fast. First, you want to make sure you’re getting a quality product. Dr. Akilah partnered with the Fremont Indigenous People of Utah to create this natural healing clay extracted from the earth and brought to you in its pure, natural state. Her healing clay is 100% pure sodium bentonite clay.
