10 Mistakes Woman Make with Diets

10 Mistakes Woman Make with Diets

Very informative, well written, and true!

Diet programs that are adverstised on TV are crap; they do not teach you how to sustain heathy eating. Sure, you’ll loose weight at first – restricting calories to stupid low levels will do that – but most gain it all back, plus some. These programs can wreak havoc on your metabolism and cause you to loose muscle mass – and all the money in your bank account.

Don’t get fooled by “pretend health foods”. Their earthy packaging and “organic ingredients” doesn’t make them a good choice.

Do you want your body to become a fat burning machine? Than pack on some muscle and eat to build, not to loose.

Eat well balanced meals that include heatlhy fats, carbs, and protein. Restricting any macronutrient will leave the body starved of certain nurtients that it needs in order to function properly.

Not eating breakfast, barely eating at lunch, then overeating at night is a great way to stress your body and gain even more fat.

Ginger Powder Helps Type II Diabetes

Holistic (or natural) nutrition has been an interest of mine for quit some time now.

The Subway Sandwhich Deception

The Subway Sandwhich Deception

I really can’t say I’m surprised. I used to eat Subway thinking it was healthy, but it never failed to give me a stomach ache or make me feel ill after consuming it.

The more I learned about nutrtion, the less appealing this place became; refined sugars, GMOs, MSG, preservatives, and chemical additives are just a handful of things found in their “healthy” sandwhiches.

It is really unfortunate, many people view this place as a healthy alternative to other fast food restaurants, but it really isn’t. Making your own sandwhich and bringing it with you is for sure the better option.
