Detox Diet Menu 0

Posted on August 17, 2014 by Grace

How to Detox Diet Menu

The main objective when following the detox diet is to avoid processed foods! Processed foods add no nutritional value, basically when processed foods are consumed they break down into mostly sugar, and sugar will turn into fat if the body does not burn it off. Get the background on what the Dr. Oz detox diet is all about.

So what are processed foods? 

The majority of processed foods are stripped of their natural ingredients, removing most of their nutritional value. They are also usually packed with artificial ingredients such as; preservatives and chemicals for enhancements and to extend the life of the products.

Processed foods are considered bad carbohydrates because they have no real health benefits, they are mostly sugar, chemicals and preservatives that contribute to weight gain and other health related diseases.

Also processed foods do not provide the energy your body needs to function and feel good, leaving you feeling tried and unmotivated.

Some Processed Foods to Avoid: 

1. White Breads and White Pastas: 

White breads and white pastas are made with refined white flour: Why should you avoid white breads and pastas? Well, white bread and white pasta are bleached flour.

Bleached flour has most of the fiber removed from it, and contains almost no health benefits. When fiber is not present in bread it makes it a simple carb that your body treats similar to sugar, so when you are consuming white breads you are really consuming sugar.

White bread has no real nutritional value (no polyfats, no protein no vitamins or minerals or antioxidants). White bread just doesn’t have the fiber and nutrients that whole wheat bread has.

Whole wheat bread and whole wheat pastas is a great substitute.  The key is to look for foods that contain good carbohydrates such as; whole wheat flour and whole gains, check the ingredient label for whole wheat flour or whole gains not enriched or white flour.  Enriched wheat really is refined white flour so be sure to check the label before you make a purchase.

2. Packaged Snack Foods:

High-calorie package snack foods, chips, cheese snacks, cookies and cakes are high in trans fats and hydrogenated oils. Most packaged snack foods such as; candy, chips, cookies and packaged food mixes contain ingredients that are high in artificial sugar and fats. Trans fats and high fructose corn syrup are ingredients that you need to be aware of, these artificial, high sugar and fat ingredients, found in most packaged snack foods are the biggest offenders to look for, eliminate these foods from your diet and you will lose weight while eating a healthy diet.

What are trans fats (hydrogenated fats)?

Trans fats are hydrogenated fats and are listed on the ingredient label as hydrogenated fat, read the ingredient list for this ingredient and walk away from products that contain this on supermarket packaged foods. Manufacturers use trans fats because it is cheaper to process and it extends the shelf life of food. Like saturated fats, trans fats raise LDL “bad” cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease. But unlike saturated fats, trans fats lower HDL “good” cholesterol and may do more damage, says the American Heart Association (AHA). The AHA advises limiting saturated fat consumption to less than 7% of daily calories and trans fat consumption to less than 1%. Some studies also showed that a diet high in trans fatty acids may be linked to a greater risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

A food Substitution for high package snacks:
There are a lot of great natural food substitutes such as; nuts, popcorn, fruits or even whole wheat cookies.  Here is some information on healthy snacks and some great healthy low calorie snacks you can make yourself.

3. Commercially Fried Food:

Trans fats can be found in many restaurant foods – but especially in fried foods like French fries, fried chicken, doughnuts, chicken nuggets and pizza crust. Get the scoop on healthy low calorie dishes along with high calorie dishes to watch out for when eating out.

Key: Minimize the intake of both saturated fat and trans fat by checking the food labels. Effective January 1, 2006, all packaged food products must list trans fats content on the Nutrition Facts panel. The amount of trans fats per serving of food will appear under the Total Fat section of the label.

Food Facts – Why Are We Overweight? 0

Posted on August 10, 2014 by Grace

Is the Food Today Making Us Fat?

Get the Real Story on Foods Today!

 

How to lose Weight - Food tips

 

The way we eat has really changed over the last 50 years. Our food today comes from huge assembly lines. In the 1970’s the top 5 meat producers controlled only 25% of the market, but today the top 4 meat producers control 80% of the market. Today’s food industry goals are to grow it bigger, faster and cheaper. And I’m sure this also applies to our waist line. With the except of cheaper, Americans are paying for this now, as it applies to the growing health costs, associated with being over weight. The reality is that a handful of companies have changed what we eat. Our food is being reengineered into something that is unrecognizable. No one is thinking about diabetes, hearth disease, cancer or the ecological health of the whole system. Peel away the curtain, and do you really know what you will find behind today’s foods? The ingredient labels are an eye opener; filled with unrecognizable ingredients. Weight loss plans have been so difficult for most Americans because today’s foods are so confusing.

First answer this question; would you rather spend your money on a great vacation or spend that money on health care?  Statistics show that being over weight or obese leads to an unhealthy lifestyle of diseases, low energy, and unhappiness, higher heath care costs and lower life span. Now ask yourself what do you want and how do you want to spend the rest of your life? I can tell that once you change your lifestyle you won’t go back.

The first step in your healthy diet plan is education, know the food facts, it is so important to a healthy diet and losing weight.

First order a copy of the Food Inc. dvd, a documentary that gives you the story behind today’s food industry and why today’s food are so unhealthy and cause weight gain. Get a copy of Food Inc., it was featured on Oprah and it will tell you the real story on what our food is today! (it is available to the Bottom at a great price).

Cut out processed food! What are processed foods? Well, processed foods are foods that have almost no nutrients and are found in most packaged supermarket foods. Today unfortunately most of us have diets that are rich in processed foods. Processed foods have no real nutritional value (no poly fats, no protein, no vitamins or minerals or antioxidants) it is truly like ingesting sugar.

A diet that is rich in processed foods will lead to weight gain.

Dieting Secret Weapon Smoothies 0

Posted on July 22, 2014 by Grace

These desert inspired sips are loaded with specially formulated whey protein designed to increase metabolism and blast fat fast.

Undenatured Whey is Best for Slimming Down!

 

Optimizes liver function

Undenatured whey is made using a cold-press method that preserves the chemical structure of three essential amino acids (cysteine, glycine and glutamate).  These boost the production of an antioxidant (glutathione) that speeds detoxication and fat burning in the liver.  Research in Nutrition journal found this helped subjects on a whey protein rich diet to lose weight and burn fat vs those who didn’t get the protein.

Revs Metabolism

Sipping a smoothie enriched with undenatured whey can increase calorie expenditure by 25 percent for up to 5 1/2 hours. The credit goes to whey’s leucine, an amino acid that prompts muscle cells to preferentially burn fat for fuel.

Dials Down Appetite

The highly absorbable proteins in undenatured whey triggers a 65 percent greater release of key hunger-suppressing hormones compared with other proteins.  The payoff: British researchers found that subjects who drank a whey protein shake felt fuller longer and consumed 19 percent fewer calories at their next meal than those given an alternate protein.

Whey Product Recommendation:

We love Reserveage Organics Grass-Fed Vanilla Whey Protein  for its smooth flavor and superfine texture.  Plus, studies show that whey derived from the milk of grass fed cows contains up to 5 times more metabolism revving conjugated linoleic acid than other whey proteins.

Spicy Roasted Tomatoes with Spaghetti 0

Posted on June 10, 2014 by Grace

Spicy Roasted Tomatoes with Spaghetti

Ingredients:

  • 2 Pounds Cherry Tomatoes
  • 3/4 tbs. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • Black Pepper
  • 10 large Basil Leaves
  • 1 pound Stracciatella
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • Sea Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 pound Spaghetti

Directions:

Heat a convection oven to 350 degrees. On a baking sheet, toss the tomatoes and the garlic with two tablespoons of the olive oil until coated. Season with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer and bake until the tomatoes are beginning to brown but are still juicy, about 20 minutes (25 minutes in standard oven).

While the tomatoes cook, pour the remaining 2/3 tablespoons of olive oil in deep roundo pan. Add half of basil, garlic and red pepper flakes. When the tomatoes are cooked, start the pasta: Add the spaghetti to the boiling water and cook until al dente.

At the same time, scrape the cooked tomatoes with any juices into the skillet. Crush tomatoes and garlic with a fork. Season with the red pepper flakes, bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook gently until the tomatoes release their juices and the mixture reduces slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.

When the pasta is nearly cooked, scoop out about one cup of the pasta cooking water. Set aside. Then drain the pasta and add to the skillet with the tomato mixture. Add enough of the reserved pasta cooking water to create a saucy consistency and cook 2 to 3 more minutes, stirring, to allow the pasta to absorb the flavors.

Divide the pasta and sauce among four deep plates. Top each with stracciatella over the top of each plate of pasta. Garnish each plate with remaining basil.

Belly Flattening Smoothies 2

Posted on May 20, 2014 by Grace

These smoothies are packed with plant protein to help you look and feel your all-time best with the help of Hemp Protein.

How Hemp Protein Speeds Slimming?

Hemp Revs Fat Burning

Unlike whey and soy based proteins, hemp protein is a rich source of essential fatty acids, including gammalinolenic acid (GLA).  Why that's a plus: Canadian reserachers found that GLA switches on brown fat a meta-bolically active form of fat that burns calories to generate heat.

Hemp Eases Belly Bloat

Hemp protein is up to 20 percent more digestible than soy protein. The credit goes to hemp's unique globular structure, which is easily broken down in the small intestine.  This in turn prevents undigested protein from building up in the GI tract, where it can produce bloat-triggering gas.

Hemp Dials Down Appetite

Because hemp protein contains up to 13 grams of fiber per serving, it digests more slowly for long-lasting satiety. And according to the USDA scientists, women who up their fiber intake effortlessly consume 10 percent fewer calories per day.
