Tips for improving your health

Modern food has made people fat and unhealthy. Hundreds of years ago, people who lived off wild land ate grass-fed meat, wild fish from clean oceans and rivers, plus organic produce like berries a1nd greens. They did not have any of modern man's diseases such as obesity, cancer, heart disease, diabetes.

 

When you are healthy, you have loads of energy, glowing skin and a lean body. Being lean and healthy is not difficult when you know how to make the correct food choices. Start by following these guidelines:

Organic, seasonal vegetables and fruit.
Grass-fed meat, organic free-range poultry, wild/low mercury/low PCB fish.
Healthy fats (clean fish oil, flax oil, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts, avocado).
Unrefined sea-salt (salt should be grey, brown or pink in colour).
The right amount of low-glycemic carbs (sweet potatoes, oats, brown rice, quinoa)

Drink:

Clean, purified water (approx 1/2 body weight in ounces or more daily

Avoid/Reduce:

White sugar, white bread/pasta, white table salt.
High glycemic food (ie fruit juices, white potatoes).
Processed, refined, artificial food (colours, sweeteners).
Fast food.
Deep fried food.
Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats (margarine).
Alcohol (the occasional glass of red wine is ok!).

Eat well 80% of the time so you can treat yourself 20% of the time.

Exercise:

Move your body more everyday (ie take the stairs, walk rather than drive, join a dance class etc).
Having muscle is the key to keeping your body firm and to fat burning.
Use resistance training - weights, body weight exercise, suspension training, kettle bells, etc.
Don't overdo cardio and don't over-train.

Sleep and Repair:

Sleep in a completely blacked-out room.
Reduce all electro-magnetic radiation in your bedroom (no mobile phones, computers, cordless phones, etc).
Sleep solidly through the night (8-10hrs). If you are waking to use the toilet, reduce your liquid consumption closer to bedtime.

Remember:

Change is necessary to get different results. Even small changes that become new habits can reap impressive results over time.
