  • 7 Reasons to Grow Your Own Organic Vegetable Garden

    During the last decades, there has been a change towards mechanization and homogenization of farming, which uses pesticides, additives, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, and mass-production techniques. All this is clearly affecting mankind's health, and new diseases are spreading rapidly amongst humans and animals (bird's flu being the most recent one). The World Health Organization produces reports to show how the use of chemicals and other products on food, coupled with the manufacturing processes involved, are actually a threat to our health. If you have space for a few pots or even a small piece of land, it is a wise decision to grow your own organic vegetable garden. Today I'm presenting you with seven reasons for doing this: 1. You will have no additives in your vegetables. Research by organic food associations has shown that additives in our food can cause heart diseases, osteoporosis, migraines, and hyperactivity. 2. There will be no pesticides or synthetic fertilizers used. These chemical products are applied to obtain crops all the time regardless of plagues or weather conditions and affect the quality of the vegetables. Besides, pesticides are usually poisonous to humans. 3. Your vegetables will not be genetically modified (GM). Antibiotics, drugs, and hormones are used on vegetables to grow more and larger ones. One of the consequences of this practice is vegetables which look all the same and are usually tasteless. Besides, we end up consuming the hormones that have been used on the vegetables, with potential risks for our health. 4. Eating your own organic vegetables will be much more healthy for you. They will not contain any of the products or chemicals named above, and they will be much more natural than any ones you would find at the supermarket. Your health will not be at risk because you will then know that nothing has been added to your vegetables. 5. Your own organic vegetables will be much tastier. The use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, hormones, and antibiotics makes vegetables grow unnaturally and take the taste away from them. With organic vegetables, your cooking will be enhanced as their flavor will show fully. 6. Organic farming is friendly to the environment. Because you won't use pesticides or other equally harmful products on your vegetables, you will not damage the soil or the air with the chemical components. 7. When you grow your own organic vegetables you are contributing to your own self-sustainability and the sustainability of the planet. Small communities have been founded where members exchange products that they grow naturally, thus contributing to creating a friendly and better place for us all. In the end, eating organic products only means that we do not add anything else to them than they would naturally have. As you can guess, additives, fertilizers, pesticides or hormones are not components of naturally grown food. To better care for your health, grow your own organic vegetables -and a few pots are all you need.

  • 7 Amazing Reasons For Using Coconut Oil

    It is a common misconception that coconut oil is bad for you. People all over the world are experiencing the healthy benefits of using coconut oil. It is one of the most beneficial oils you can consume. Here are the top seven reasons you should use coconut oil to alternative other common cooking oils. 1. Coconut oil doesn't turn into fat in your body. Unlike many other common oils, like soy (vegetable) and corn, coconut oil won't make you fat. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), an easy fuel for the body to burn without turning to fat. Most other cooking oils and fats contain long-chain triglycerides (LCT). LCT's are usually stored as fat. Since coconut oil is an MCT, it is more easily absorbed and converted to energy quicker. People in the tropics have relied on coconuts as a traditional staple in their diet for centuries. They consume large amounts of coconut oil every day. Instead of getting fatter, it helps them stay healthy, lean, and trim. When they switch from coconut oil to our modern oils, they develop obesity and the health problems that our modern society faces. Some other people who have known this truth for a long time are in the animal feed business. When livestock is fed vegetable oils, they put on weight and produce more fatty meat. When they are provided coconut oil, they become very lean. 2. Coconut oil increases your metabolism. Not only does coconut oil convert to energy quicker in your body, but it also increases your metabolism, promoting weight loss. Because it boosts your metabolism, it helps your body burn fat more effectively. Coconut oil may triple your calorie burn. Since coconut oil is an MCT, it is converted to energy quickly, which creates a lot of heat. In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, MCT's burn three times more calories for six hours after a meal than LCT's. The February 15, 2005 issue of Woman's World magazine stated that coconut oil is the "underground high-metabolism secret." This is excellent news for people who have thyroid problems since coconut oil improves sluggish thyroids by stimulating extra thyroid hormones. Most other common oils, like vegetable (soy) and corn, have been shown to inhibit thyroid function. 3. Coconut oil has omega-three fatty acids. Most cooking oils contain omega-six fatty acids, something we get way too much in the United States. Our omega 6 to omega-three ratios should be 1:1, but it is more like 50:1. We need to drastically cut back our omega-six oils and consume much more omega-three oils to be healthy. And coconut oil is filled with these healthy omega-three fatty acids. 4. Coconut oil gives you energy. Because of the healthy omega-three fatty acids and the fact that it increases metabolism, most people who switch to coconut oil feel a burst of added energy in their daily lives. This is because coconut oil is nature's richest source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which increase metabolic rates and lead to weight loss. MCT's promote thermogenesis, which increases the body's metabolism, producing energy. This is because coconut oil is nature's richest source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which increase metabolic rates and lead to weight loss. MCT's promote thermogenesis, which increases the body's metabolism, producing energy. Many people with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia have found that adding coconut and coconut oil to their diet was helpful to them. 5. One of the best things you can use on your skin and hair is coconut oil. Coconut oil is one of the best things you can apply directly to your skin and hair. It gives temporary relief to skin problems like rashes. It aids in healing and restoring skin to a younger appearance. It has also been known to help people who suffer from yeast infections in the skin and many other skin problems. Not only does it soften and smooth your skin, but coconut oil also has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from free radical damage. Coconut oil makes excellent massage oil too. 6. Coconut oil has healthy benefits that most other oils do not. Evidence mounts that coconut oil has anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral effects when both consumed and used topically on the skin. Most oils oxidize and turn rancid very quickly, causing free radical damage in our bodies. Coconut oil is not easily oxidized and does not cause harmful free radical damage like polyunsaturated vegetable oils. Free radical damage is thought to be responsible for many ailments in our body, from arthritis to increased susceptibility to cancers. Coconut oil also helps our bodies absorb other nutrients more effectively, such as Vitamin E. 7. Coconut oil is one of the best oils you can use for cooking. It has a higher smoke point than olive oil, which means it can take higher temperatures better. There are several healthy omega-three oils we can choose to consume, such as flax and olive oil, but they don't do well under the high heat we use for cooking. Coconut oil can be used in higher cooking temperatures. It is harder for coconut oil to go rancid, unlike other cooking oils, which are usually rancid long before you even bring them home. Rancid oils cause free radical damage in the body, which is a leading cause of cancer. Coconut oil is stable for over a year at room temperature. Because of the misinformation we have been given for years, we have lost out on the healthy benefits that coconut oil has given the tropics people for centuries. But now it has been rediscovered! Coconut oil is so effective, it won't be long before we see coconut oil supplements promoted, but you can get the jump on the popular crowd and start consuming and cooking with coconut oil today!

  • Getting In Shape In Time For Summer

    Being overweight in the summer heat is no fun. And exposing an overly padded stomach or thighs isn't exactly pleasant when everyone else around you is wearing gnat-sized beachwear and drizzling oil onto wasp-like abdomens. In fact, for people carrying excess weight, summer can be an unpleasant trial involving countless opportunities for embarrassment and discomfort. So let's take a look at how you can reduce some of your fat and make next summer a happier experience. But first, a warning. Summer Weight Loss Trap One guaranteed way to fail is to look for a "short cut" weight loss method or diet. You know what I mean: the type of program that promises "a fast, effortless way to reduce weight." In my experience, none of these diets or pills work, and the medical evidence is quite clear: the maximum rate of sustainable fat loss is between 1 and 2 pounds per week, perhaps a little more if you are obese. Besides, if a brilliant scientist managed to concoct a formula for rapid, effortless weight reduction, he would be more famous than Einstein overnight. He certainly wouldn't be peddling his program in 30-second TV infomercials or mail-order advertisements. For the sake of your sanity and your financial health, don't waste time on weight loss methods that make extravagant claims. If you don't believe this, think of any of your overweight friends who favor the short-term "lose 20 pounds in two weeks ' type of approach, and ask yourself why they are still overweight. Three Month Summer Diet Plan You can't lose much weight in a week or two. You need about three months to make a significant impact on your body shape. Remember, the human body is interested in survival, not cosmetic appearances. Since rapid weight loss is a prima facie symptom of disease, not good health, the only guaranteed way to improve your body shape is to adopt a gradual approach to healthy eating and increased exercise. In three months, you can lose about 26 pounds - more than enough for most overweight people to experience noticeable health improvements as well as a much leaner body. And by reducing your weight gradually in this manner, you have far less chance of weight regain, so if necessary, you can continue losing more with less danger of incurring a weight loss plateau or other obstacles. Having A Motive Is Very Important No one likes to change their habits. So if you want to change your eating and exercise habits, you need a strong motive - something to keep you dieting and exercising when boredom sets in. Whatever reason you choose, it must be something more powerful than the urge to eat tasty high-calorie foods in front of the TV! A Good Motive For Shedding Weight Anything that commits you in advance to achieving your weight loss goal makes a great motive. So be bold. Book an expensive beach holiday, or buy some gorgeous clothes to fit the body you want to have at the end of your diet program. Both these actions require you to succeed and therefore provide constant motivation along the way. Be Positive About Short Term Sacrifices Whether you're trying to lose weight for the summer, save money, or pass exams, an essential piece of the motivational jigsaw is your ability to be optimistic about making short term sacrifices. The choice is relatively simple: you can focus on the "deprivation" involved in giving up certain foods or focusing on the benefits you will get by not eating these foods. Sadly, many dieters focus on feeling deprived. After a while, they see their diet as a burden, a bore, an evil necessity. This is why so many of them quit. They can't "see" the benefits that weight loss will bring them. If you want to improve your body shape for the summer, you must avoid this trap and appreciate the longer-term benefits you will receive by making short-term adjustments to your lifestyle. The Good News About Improving Your Diet Many of our tastes, food cravings, and general attitudes to food are strongly influenced by what we eat and drink. I know countless mothers with families who have reported astonishing changes in their personal and family eating habits after less than three weeks of improved eating. The average modern diet is loaded with sugar, fat, and sodium, all of which condition us to want more of these items. But if you can break out of this dependence on junk-ingredients for even 2-3 weeks, you'll notice a huge difference in your tastes, which brings me to healthy eating. Think Healthy Eating, Not Weight Loss In my experience, one of the most effective weight loss strategies is to focus on healthy eating. I'm not saying you shouldn't stand on your weighing scales, don't measure progress exclusively by what the leaves say. Be aware that it's just as important to enjoy your food and feel good about your eating habits change. And any diet you hate is guaranteed to fail, no matter how much weight you lose, because as soon as you achieve your goal, you will revert to your old eating habits and regain every pound lost. The Amazing Indirect Benefits of Exercise Exercise does burn extra calories and therefore does help to widen your calorie deficit. But it's a direct effect on shedding weight. It is typically relatively small. It's not uncommon to gain weight when you start exercising. The real weight reduction benefits of exercise are indirect ones. It raises our metabolic rate, helping us to burn calories at a slightly faster pace, and improves our mood, which typically reduces our need for comfort-eating. However, don't overdo your exercise workouts. I've lost count of the number of dieters who started exercising too vigorously and burnt out within three weeks. Ideally, start with 45 minutes/day of any physical activity you can easily manage and gradually increase the duration and intensity. Listen to your body at all times, and be sure to loosen up beforehand and wind down afterward. See Yourself As You Want To Be If your goal is a waistline you can proudly display in the sun, then don't wait until it happens to "see" it. Visualize it from the moment you start dieting. Visualize yourself walking along a beach or lying next to the pool with a perfectly flat stomach. Whatever your ambition for your weight or body, get used to visualizing it in the greatest possible detail because "seeing it" is the first step to making it come true. As they say, one picture is worth a thousand words. Feeling Discouraged? Just Visualize The Benefits! If you have a lot of weight to shed (100 pounds+), you may not think that losing 26 pounds in three months is particularly worthwhile. If so, ask yourself this question. What's the alternative? No matter what method you choose, you won't lose weight any faster, so it's only a question of when you start and how long it will take. I can answer the last question right now. Losing 100 pounds takes about a year - typically a little longer to allow for disasters along the way. Fifteen months would be a more realistic time to reduce weight by this amount. This is nothing. Just visualize yourself walking down the street 100 pounds lighter, and tell me that eating healthily for 15 months is too high a price to pay for such a fantastic prospect. Your First Priority Is To Get Support If you want to lose weight for the summer, your priority is to find support. Join a diet-group at work or a fitness class, or go to weight loss meetings. Or join an online forum. Shedding weight on your own is entirely possible, providing things go well and your scales keep saying nice things. But when difficulties arise, as they surely will, having real people's support can make all the difference between success and failure. Good luck, you can do it!
