  1. 25% of Adults in the Unites States are "Inactive", 25% Are Obese.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults need to spend at least 30 minutes on exercise per day, for a minimum of 5 days per week, to maintain a healthy body weight. Do you exercise for at least two and a half hours each week? You may not. One fourth of all adults living in the US are "inactive" and lead a sedentary lifestyle. Yet, no politician or celebrity ever speaks out against obesity and just says "what the hell is going on here? Why are we all so damn fat?!" There are 1440 minutes in each, there is no excuse for not finding a way to use 30 of those minutes  each day for exercise. There are approximately 80 million adults in the United States who are obese. Saturated with national media coverage of war, gas prices, politics, and unemployment, Americans get sidetracked and become complacent in their lethargic, fast-food-eating ways. People are getting fat. Not like cute fat, or small l

  2. Organic Foods - Are They "Worth" It?

    Reducing exposure to toxic chemicals in your food is an easy decision if your wallet can afford buying organic produce. With that said, the true math behind it all proves that an organic diet costs relatively the same as a traditional diet. For those that are reading this and shaking your heads in disagreement, do the actual math on it and then get back to me. Without laying down the entire argument for why organic food isn't more expensive than regular food, I'll just remind you that a "value meal" at at fast food restaurant will costs over 6$ on average and that 6$ worth of organic foods from Trader Joes or your local market, will provide far more nutritional value than the former. Since toxins accumulate as they go up the food change, buying organic animal products is the most important for your health. Organic, hormone free chicken and free-range grass fed-beef products are no brainers to buy, once again, if they don't break your bank. Fruits such as peaches, apples and berries ar

  3. Setting Up Your Kitchen

    Healthy living revolves around healthy eating. In order to optimize your health and fitness, nutrition is of the utmost importance. Fast food and food on the go from gas stations and convenient stores will get you dirty skin, a fat belly and an addiction for junk food. If you don't want to end up a statistic on obesity, like 1 out of 3 adults in the US, then you are going to need to ditch the fast food and snacks loaded with sugar and carbs. Getting in the groove of healthy living is made much easier with a kitchen tailored to help you achieve your goals. Now you don't have to remodel your kitchen, or change the flooring, or buy a new refrigerator and "setting up your kitchen" will not cost you an arm and a leg. This is what you do. Make sure you have these 3 things; a blender, a juicer and a source of clean (pure) water. Having a blender in your kitchen is significant because any clean living plan incorporates many shakes and soups. I recommend using a high speed, durable blender. Ju

  4. Five Minute Meditation

    Find the most peaceful environment near you and sit with your back straight in a chair. Place your feet under your knees. Relax your arms and put the palms of your hands on your thighs. Take a deep breath, feel your feet, then your calves and legs. Work your way up throughout the body while remaining calm for 5 full minutes. Set a timer so you don't look at the clock. Once you accomplish a week of meditating for 5 minutes a day, you should move up to 6 minutes for a week and then progress at your own pace. Continue this pattern of regularly meditating and your body and mind will feel much cleaner.
    Meditation and medication. In practice, one letter separates these two words and yet they are polar opposites in reality. Meditating allows us to relieve stress, become more mindful of our surroundings and focus our attention on what is most significant, our body and mind. Take 5 minutes each day to meditat

  5. Detox Your Body Periodically

    Nobody entirely avoids toxicity. Our daily routine is laced with toxins and although we can't completely eliminate them, we can be mindful of their widespread existence and cleanse our body of toxins occasionally. Chemicals from standard household cleaning agents, laundry detergent, deodorant, car exhaust and many more toxins linger in the air and subsequently linger in our bodies. Installing water and air filters at home will be a simple yet helpful step in the right direction of living a cleaner life. Consume as much natural, organic food as possible and the more locally grown it is, the better. When you come up with a plan, you have to stick with it and ride through the tough times. It's not easy to entirely change your life around at the drop of a dime, small incremental steps helps and as long as our worst gets better, then we are moving forward.  Make sure your body goes though natural detoxification. Detoxification is all all day activity. Waste from our insides is always

  7. Get into the Zone - Chew All Of Your Food!

    Digestion starts in the mouth. You should chew all of your food a lot more than you do. Chewing your food well allows you to digest your food much easier. Certainly it's not difficult to understand that if you swallow a big hunk of meat without enough chewing first, that your insides will have a tougher time breaking down the food once we swallow it. Chewing starts the release of saliva, which lubricates the food for digestion and provides an easier transition from your esophagus to your stomach. Geographically, there are demographics of people that live considerably longer lives on average, than the rest of us living in non-Blue Zones (most of us have no idea what a Blue Zone is). Blue Zones are geographic areas highlighted by their ultra-healthy population and its ability to endure long lives.  Researchers and intellectuals from around the globe have tried to take into consideration all of the characteristics of people living in Blue Zones in order to find out why their lifesty

  8. Eating Small Meals Throughout the Day is Bad for You!

    You digestive system needs time to work. If you keep eating food all day long, you do not give your body the proper breaks that it needs, in order to cleanse your insides of harmful oxidants. A general rule to go by is to give yourself a 12 hour break from the time you eat your last meal the night before and the time when you break the 12 hour fast (Breakfast!) the next day. Popular culture seems to have bought that eating small amounts of food all day is good for you, but in reality, it's not and optimal digestion techniques require one 12 hour fast overnight, each day. If you really want to optimize your digestion, take 2 tablespoons of olive oil each night before bad. It does a phenomenal job of lubricating our insides.
