The Real Truth behind Organic Foods

Many people are unaware of what organic food really is.  It seems that everywhere we go now, someone is promoting something that is “organic”.  Are these foods worth your time and money?

It almost seems like some people are afraid of organic food. Could this be possible? Are people afraid that eating one morsel of organic food is going to somehow instantly initiate them into the organic food cult where you’re only allowed to wear sandals made from tree bark and deodorant is prohibited?

I swear I have had people say to me “Well, you can’t be that organic because you wear make-up and you don’t smell.”

What? That’s not what organic means at all!  All it means is that the food or the product has been grown the way mother nature intended: without the use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. In other words, naturally!

Are some people afraid of the price? Organic does not automatically mean “break the bank”. Many times when I compare the price of the organic food versus the conventional food, they are only a few cents different. In the case of the bag of organic carrots I bought today for my lunch, they were the exact same price as the conventional ones. Imagine that!

If anything about the word “organic” makes you want to jump and run the other way, be sure to read my previous blog post “Is there such a thing as Cheap Organic Food?”

It will help you understand exactly why organic food is all the rave these days and what you can do to make organic living easy, simple and not so scary!

How to lose weight fast and forever: Clear Your Mind

In our age, as with any other type of information, there is a complete overload of information on how to lose weight. Even more than there is good information, there is a lot of hype. You need to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff.  There are tons of diets on the web presented by people who haven’t been specially educated to know all the pros and cons and be able to professionally advise you. The Diet Solution program has been created by Isabel De Los Rios – a nutrition and exercise specialist with over 10 years of experience helping clients reach their ideal weight and tackle conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol. Isabel  has a very extensive educational background in nutrition and exercise physiology. Her personal experience with her own weight struggles and her mother’s severe diabetes led her search for the BEST nutrition information available today. The Diet Solution Program is a result of her 15 year study and research. Following this program, you will need to not believe what other books, TV, magazines say about nutrition and diets. If you have any questions or concerns, you’d just need to ask Isabel herself (and you will be able to do it being the member of this program).

How to lose weight fast and forever: Set Goals and Positive Affirmations

Before beginning the program, set yourself achievable goals and think of a few affirmations. For example, my first goal was to fit in a dress that my husband really likes on me (which I wasn’t able to fit into for the last couple of years) and achieve this within 3 months. My affirmations (that I was repeating to myself 4 – 5 times a day) were:

I enjoy my life and everyday is a blessing!

Eating fresh and wholesome food makes me look and feel great!

I believe I can achieve anything if I really want it and I take some steps towards success!

Isabel De Los Rios herself said, “Believe me when I tell you that without positive affirmations, my own journey to health would not have been possible. This single step has helped me and thousands of Beyond Diet members achieve their weight loss andlifestyle goals.”

Benefits of Drinking Water

The human body is made up of about 60% water, a resource that needs to be constantly replenished as our bodies work; as we breathe we loose water, as we sweat and as we go to the toilet.

When we have lost only 2% of our normal water level, our bodies start to become dehydrated, with initial symptoms such as a thirst or dryness of the skin, leading onto headaches, muscle cramps and dizziness. We can feel more tired and the ability to think clearly can diminish. As our bodies become more dehydrated as the amount of water in our systems drop, these symptoms will become more severe.

The initial health benefits of drinking water in regular amounts is therefore to eliminate dehydration and to remain alert. As the body can not store excess water, you should aim to replace water at a similar rate to which it is lost which is why you need to drink more water on a hot day, where you may be perspiring more.

Having sufficient water in your system also ensures that you kidneys will work to the best of their abilities. The kidneys are the organs that remove the waste products from your body and helps regulate blood pressure. The kidneys clean the waste from the blood and pas it out of the body in the urine, for which they need sufficient amounts of water. Part of this process also means that they regulate the amount of water in your body which is why your urine changes to a darker colour when you have not drunk enough water.

So how much do you need to drink to see the benefits of drinking water?

In a country such as the United Kingdom, a person will need to replace about 2.5 litres of water, through drinking water, but some water will also be replaced from the foods you eat, especially fruit which can be very high in water content. The “eight glasses of water a day” rule of thumb will provide just about litres of water which is why this is a useful guide.

As discussed above, a good indication of whether you are drinking enough water is the frequency with which you go to the toilet and the colour of your urine.

Because your bodies work harder and perspire more when exercising, it is not surprising to find that athletes can see a marked drop in their performance with only a small loss of water. There can be a 30% reduction with only a 2% drop in water so the benefits of drinking water when exercising are clear.

Whilst it is difficult to drink too much water, there are some special considerations that you need to be aware of, particularly if you suffer from medical conditions such as diabetes and if you are ever in doubt you should consult a doctor.

Eat Buckwheat To Lose Weight

Eat buckwheat to lose weight – this is a number one weight loss rule in the Eastern Europe. I remember being little and all covered in eczema my doctor told my mom she had to feed me lots of buckwheat as it’s one of the most nutritious foods packed with antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. My doctor looked at my mom and said: lady, you too eat buckwheat, you need to lose weight! This made my mom blush, but we both went on a buckwheat diet, each for own reason, and guess what – my eczema calmed down at that point and my mom’s weight loss process went into motion!

There is even a crash mono diet when you desperately need to shed some weight within a week’s time to fit into that dress on Friday. You can only eat buckwheat for 3 – 4 days and drink lots of water. It would help if you didn’t put any salt when cooking buckwheat, but if you absolutely can’t eat it without salt, then only put a little. When I do this, I also add a tea spoon of good extra virgin olive oil. This kasha is totally delicious! Of course, make sure that when you get off this few days crash diet, you continue following your diet solution program

Buckwheat doesn’t contain wheat (inconsiderate of the fact that this word is present in buckwheat). In fact, buckwheat is a fruit seed and not a grain, though it can be used as such. Substitute your rice with buckwheat altogether (and use buckwheat the same way you would use rice) and see your fat starting to melt.

Buckwheat is virtually gluten-free, which makes is a great food for those with celiac disease

Buckwheat’s protein characteristics and minerals make it a low glycemic food that helps to control blood sugar levels (very important when trying to lose weight).

Buckwheat is also unparalleled in its ability to lower bad cholesterol Buckwheat is rich in B vitamins as well as phosphorus, magnesium, iron, folate, zinc, copper and manganese

Buckwheat has been found to lower blood pressure

One of the very important points to make about eating buckwheat is that it is actually delicious! I realize it’s not something you might be used to, but trust me, once you’ve tried this – you will be hooked on buckwheat! I know people who understand the super powers of quinoa let’s say (which are not superior to the ones of buckwheat by the way), but just don’t like its taste. Once the switch from either quinoa or rice to buckwheat – they tick the taste problem off their list!

There are numerous ways to eat buckwheat to lose lose weight! There is a great variety of recipes. The easiest one is plainly cook the buckwheat per the package instructions (simply rinse it under clean water, then cook in boiling water for 10 – 12 minutes. Add some olive oil and some cooked vegetables per your taste, I usually only add some saute’d carrots). You can also make buckwheat flour pancakes (read the recipe here) or waffles and one of my favorite – you can buy soba noodles that are made of buckwheat flour! Put them in a thai style soup and you will be set for a delicious lunch!

So, you can now see why we can and need to eat buckwheat to lose weight! I wish you a good luck in your weight loss journey deliciously accompanied by the magic buckwheat seed!
