GENETIC CONTAMINATED FOODS – KILLING PEOPLE

One more term added to the dictionary of pollutions, The Genetic Pollution or Genetic Contamination. The term was popularized by environmentalist Jeremy Rifkin in his 1998 book The Biotech Century. Genetic Contamination or Pollution can be described as the serious side effects  that may occur due the unintentional process of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) dispersing their genes into the natural environment by cross breeding with wild plants or animals in the nature.

Dangers Behind Genetic Contamination:

The dangers behind Genetic contamination cannot be explained with one or two posts. I feel that it need minimum ten big posts to give a clear idea about that. Anyway I will explain few aspects.

Genetic engineering helps institutions or scientists to create plants, animals and micro-organisms by manipulating genes in an artificial way.These genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can spread through nature and interbreed with natural organisms, thereby contaminating naturally occurring animals and plants .

This alteration can create new species whose reproduction, health safety, natural good effects are altered in an unpredictable way. Once the natural environment is contaminated with such modified organisms then this cannot be recalled or rectify back to older condition.

What will happen if a crop is Genetically Modified?

There are some good effects for Genetically Modified like controlling weeds, increasing output etc. But the hidden danger is that these GM crops will be mingled with natural breeds and outcome cannot be determined. Moreover, using such Genetically Modified crops will give a monopoly to seed producing Multinational companies. Farmers will have to pay some money to such companies for using the seeds again. Or most of the times, Genetically Modified crops will not produce seeds that can generate next generations, we say it as “KILLER CROPS”

An Example: Bayer CropScience AG, a subsidiary company of the German chemical giant Bayer AG developed a Genetically Modified rice, – technical name LL62 – has been genetically-engineered to withstand high doses of glufosinate, sprayed on rice fields by farmers to control a wide range of weeds. The weeds will die, the GE rice will survive.

Health Dangers of Genetically Modified crop foods

  • Lack of Safety Testing—Genetically Modified crops produces food that never tested for its long term safety.Toxins and Allergic Reactions or Side effects—Genetically Modified crops are mutated and may create new and higher levels of toxins in foods. This can create some Allergic reactions or even can turn deadly.
  • 37 people died, 1500 were partially paralyzed, and 5000 more were temporarily disabled by a syndrome that was finally linked to tryptophan made by genetically-engineered bacteria.
  • Decreased Nutritional Value—Transgenic foods may mislead consumers with counterfeit freshness. A luscious-looking, bright red genetically engineered tomato could be several weeks old and of little nutritional worth.
  • Presence of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria—Genetic engineers use antibiotic-resistance genes to mark genetically engineered cells. These genes may be picked up by bacteria which may infect us.

Where to find details of a Genetically Contaminated Material Here is a Genetic Contaminated Material Register which will help you to find details of a crop or anything of your choice.This GM register contains details of:

*contamination incidents – where food, feed or a related wild species have been found to contain unintended GM material from a GM crop or other organism

*illegal plantings or releases of GM organisms – when an unauthorised planting or other release into the environment or food chain has taken place

*negative agricultural side-effects – when there has been a report of agricultural problems arising from the GM organism and how it is managed

Scientific Name:
Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni

Stevia Rebaudiana is an herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub and is native to Brazil  and Paraguay. The glycosides in its leaves, including up to 10% Stevioside, account for its sweetness. The leaves contains Stevioside and RebaudiosideA, substances that is 300 times sweeter than table sugar, without no calories and is not broken down by heat.

Sugar plant History :

These leaves are used to sweeten native beverages since Pre-Columbian times. In 1887, Scientist Antonio Bertoni first recorded its usage by native tribes. Stevia leaves have been used by Guarani Indians in Paraguay as a soothing tonic for stomach ailments

Sugar Plant Now: 

Around 60% of the sweeteners in the market in Japan, China are products from Stevia. Stevia occurs naturally, requiring no patent to produce it. Stevia and Stevioside approved as food additive and sweetener in many countries including Malaysia, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and India. Many countries are doing much research in the process of approval.

Diabetic patients can use these leaves as an alternate for sugar. These sweet leaves provide the taste of sugar without increasing the sugar or glucose level in the body. Besides this, these leaves are also good for heart patients as it smooth the cardiovascular function.

Advantages of Stevia - wonder sugar plant

H1N1 VACCINE – A BIOLOGICAL WEAPON?

Several reports coming out that this vaccine is a biological weapon, may be using to establish some chronic diseases like Blood Pressure, Diabetes in younger generations.

Capturewe By using Human Genome map, may be such doubts can be true in future, but sure not for now. I have some good reasons behind this belief.

All of us should recollect the number of vaccines we are taking to a new born baby. How many? As per WHO, the following vaccines are now already giving to a child up to his age of 5. Tons of money minting by vaccine manufacturing companies, Isn’t it?

Now they are successful in adding one more vaccine to this list. It’s the H1N1 vaccine. This is the simple reason I argue that this vaccine is not dangerous. If the companies want to make profit for a long term, then they will never release a bad one at the beginning stage of the business. Simple business approach

So let’s make them richer and richest. Whether we will be protected from the so called pandemics or not, of course, that’s a secondary issue, let’s go and take the vaccine tomorrow itself.

FOOD - FOOD INTERACTIONS

We have heard about many types of interactions such as Drug-Drug Interactions, Food-Drug interactions, Herbs-drug Picture1Interactions etc. But Food – Food Interaction is a serious but not much alerted one. Most of these food food interactions are harmless but it is always better to know about some of them.

What is Food-Food interaction.

The unwanted side effects caused inside the human body when two or more types of foods are consumed together. Such reactions can be less important and but on long term, it can be  fatal upon precipitating serious side effects .

Green Tea/Black Tea and Milk

Tea contains flavonoids called catechins, which have many beneficial effects on the heart. When you add milk to tea, then a group of proteins in milk, called caseins, interacted with the tea to reduce the concentration of catechins. So avoid Tea and Milk together.

Milk and Yoghurt Interaction:

As you know consuming both together can precipitate milk inside the stomach that may irritate and induce vomiting. So avoid milk and Yoghurt together.

Chamomile Tea and Garlic

Chamomile contains anticoagulant compounds called coumarins. When combined with Garlic ( that also has anti-clotting properties), they may increase the risk of bleeding . So, better to avoid Chamomile Tea and Garlic together.

Mushrooms and Red yeast rice

Mushrooms are excellent sources of vitamin B3 ( Niacin ) and high Niacin supplements may increase the risk of myopathy if combined with red yeast rice.

Pomegranate juice and grapefruit juice

Pomegranate juice and grapefruit juice, are both known to block the cytochrome P450 3A4 enzyme systems in the intestines and increase blood levels of many medications you are taking. Taking these two juices together may synergize the above action.

Unripe (green) tomatoes/Potatoes and Alcohol

The unripe green tomatoes contain huge amount of solanine which may interact with Alcohol. You may feel more sedation if the intake is more.

The list is not complete. we are collecting similar AFR ( Adverse Food Reaction ) report from many scientists, biotechnologists and some research institutions. As soon as we receive trustful reports, will publish those here. My readers may please inform us about any such experiences that you suspect as Food-Food interaction.

SWINE FLU SCAM ?

GFHRDFB I was shocked when one of my journalist friend show me some facts and figures about H1N1. Before detailing that, I would like to inform all my readers that,..

I didn't mean to reduce the possible risk of this Pandemic, criticize efforts done by WHO in controlling this disease and to hurt any of those manufacturing companies who are saving human life through their molecules.

Dangers behind treatment of H1N1

  • Oseltamivir is a medication that decreases the spread of influenza A and B viruses, the viruses responsible for the "flu” by blocking the action of neuraminidase (neuraminidase helps virus to spread from one cell to another) thereby reducing the spread of influenza.
  • Oseltamivir is normally not recommended for use during pregnancy or nursing, as the effects on the unborn child or nursing infant are unknown.
  • Oseltamivir is not a substitute for the annual flu vaccinations. The use of this drug along with an intranasal flu vaccine has not been evaluated.
  • Oseltamivir causes rare but serious skin reactions and allergic reactions.
  • Before taking Oseltamivir, you should inform your doctor if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have kidney disease, heart disease, respiratory disease, or other serious health conditions.
  • People with the flu, particularly children and adolescents, may be at an increased risk of self injury and confusion shortly after taking Oseltamivir and should be closely monitored for signs of unusual behavior

Who is benefiting from  H1N1?

Number 1. Drug Manufacturing Companies who are currently producing Oseltamivir, which is announced as Drug of choice for H1N1 influenza. This list includes multinational pharmaceutical companies like Roche,Ranbaxy etc. Around 4500 billion dollar business is aimed within a span of one year through this pandemic.

Can you just imagine the reason why a manufacturing company denied to issue Oseltamivir to an underdeveloped country absolutely free of charge.

Just think about how some of these companies will solve the financial crisis from Recent Economic recession.

“Tamiflu”, the original Oseltamivir, Sales hit 1bn Swiss francs ($937m; £567m), as Roche said Tamiflu production would be expanded to 400 million packs annually by early 2010.

Number 2. Vaccine manufacturing companies who are currently involved in so-called “Researches”.We believe that H1N1 vaccines will soon be delivered like hot cake and may be manufacturers waiting  for some good market mood to release.      " Baxter”  ready to hit tons??

A trustful report says that one prominent country in Middle east already invested Billion dollar as an advance deposit to one vaccine manufacturing country just as a booking of their Vaccine which is going to release soon.

Some people say don't take the swine flu vaccination because  it is contaminated with squalene and mercury like the 1976 swine flu vaccinations were that killed over 500 Americans.

On April 27, Time magazine published an article that details the 1976 swine flu attack, and all of you may read that for further understandings.

Number 3.  Laboratory Reagent manufacturers who are manufacturing laboratory reagents like culture media, for performing tests and Surgical disposable manufacturers. 

Number 4. Surgical disposable manufacturers who are now producing and marketing N95 masks, other surgical masks, cotton swabs to take samples of Oro-Pharyngeal secretions.

The real business aimed is 320% jump in profit.

Number 5. Alternative therapy specialists which include Homoeopathic, Herbal, Ayurvedic, Unani, Sidha systems of medicines.

Most of these systems don't have a proven clinical success  against H1N1. All systems of treatment or diagnosis including Allopathic, don’t have proven methods to provide immunity against H1N1 until today.

Some claim that intake of Vitamin C, Fennel gives immunity against H1N1 which is absolutely baseless. ( as per my information till today )

Is H1N1 really dangerous?

B00526_H1N1_flu_sml

As per current available information, H1N1 Type A influenza virus is not a dangerous one. I will explain the reasons for this argument.

a. We did a good study about the available statistics of H1N1. When compared to other influenza deaths, H1N1 deaths are very low.

b. Like any other Influenza attacks, this also will spread from one person to other very quickly.But not dangerous . Drinking more water, taking adequate rest, self isolation are very helpful in conquering this virus.

c. Persons with other underlying complications are at a high risk. For example, patients with AIDS, Diabetes, Cirrhosis etc. Chronic smokers, alcoholics and drug addicts are at extreme risk.

d. If the present virus changes its virulence then it is very difficult to predict how the infection pattern will change.

e. The symptoms of 'swine flu' are similar as regular flu and it is easy to call everything 'swine flu' to increase the official numbers

Can we suspect a Global H1N1 Scam?

There are number of reasons in front of us that point towards a scam. First of all, the statistics show that this is a mild attack by a Virus. The wide popularity given by various organizations and media actually triggered a fear in the mind of common people. This lead to uncontrolled use of Oseltamivir, the drug of choice. This pandemonium created by media is being exploited by all other alternative systems of medicine.

When the Vaccine is freely available in market, then we can easily realize who actually created this pandemic and for whom they did all these backstage works.

The consumption of all laboratory reagents, surgical items will increase globally which will lead to sharp increase in the net profit of Multi National Giants.

 

H1N1 A human engender pandemic ?

HUMAN CREATED PANDEMICS??dfgsfg

We can suspect this attack is a human created one. But not created by any of the extremists in the world. If it is a human created pandemic, then the suspicious pointer turns towards many MNC pharmaceutical companies as they are the real benefiters of any pandemic in this world.

The power of biotechnology is something unimaginable after the success of Genetic Code revealing.Various strains of viruses can easily be generated and can be used as weapons or for creating epidemics. If business is the real matter behind all such actions, then we had to worry about further attacks to human beings in future also.

So WAKE UP AND ACT AGAINST THESE COLLECTIVE FRAUDS

CARBONATED DRINKS - A SILENT KILLER

sss sdd When we think about carbonated water,two names come into our mind, one is Pepsi and the other is Coca Cola. This article doesn't mean to hurt any popular brands or its lovers.I am trying to go to the depth of possible side effects of consuming colored, flavored, bottled,carbonated drinks.

What is the need to analyze the effects of Carbonated Drink?

1. Rising Diabetic cases around the world, where the consumption of such drinks are pretty high.

2. Rising esophageal cancer cases in countries having higher sale of carbonated drinks

3. No valid clinical studies so far done about these brands to find out the extent of its danger.

4. Usually all drugs and medical formulations are undergoing studies to reveal side effects on long term use. Unfortunately, such drinks, even though they are being consumed by millions for a longer period, there are no sincere studies till now.

Possible Side effects of long term Carbonated drink consumption

N OSTEOPOROSIS

N CANCER

N DIABETES

N ACIDITY

N PEPTIC ULCER

How Carbonated drinks cause Osteoporosis?

Due to the high acidic nature of such drinks, the stomach usually gets irritated and the presence of calcium will  acts as an antacid to counter its irritation. This Calcium mostly get available from the food that you eat with the drinks. If you are taking drinks without food, i.e. on empty stomach then this Calcium will come from the natural deposits of Calcium in your body; bone, teeth etc. Now think about a prolonged consumption of Carbonated drinks that result in massive reduction of Calcium deposits in bone and there by resulting in Osteoporosis.

How Carbonated drinks cause Cancer ?

You should know that all such carbonated drinks are highly acidic in nature. The pH of water is 7, but these carbonated drinks are mostly in 2 – 3 range. When you consume carbonated drinks, then it may cause hiccups or burps or acid refluxes in the stomach that pushes the highly acidic fluid to the esophagus, resulting in lesions. Early lesions may precipitate cancer.

How Carbonated drinks cause Diabetes ?

These drinks are usually served with large amounts of sugar in it. This triggers the beta cells in “Islets of Langerhans” in pancreas to increase secretion of Insulin. Prolonged use of carbonated drinks will give additional stress to the Pancreas and thereby you also will become a  new Diabetic patient. (Antidiabetic drug manufacturing companies always cheers this.)

This doesn't means that Sugar Free carbonated drinks will favor us. Read this article full and decide yourselves.

How Carbonated drinks cause Acidity ?

What else you will get after taking gallons of highly acidic carbonated drinks. Don't rush to your chemist for an antacid. Stop taking Carbonated drinks first and then keep your stomach cool for few days.

How Carbonated drinks cause Ulcers ?

After reading all above facts, now you can guess how these drinks cause peptic ulcers. I am sure that not only Helicobacter Pylori, but carbonated drinks also contributes its own part in developing Peptic Ulcer in human beings. These acidic drinks creates small lesions in stomach and intestine which ultimately turns into ulcers.

I HAVE READ SOME FUNNY FACTS ABOUT SUCH CARBONATED DRINKS. ( Not sure it is true or not)

Carbonated drinks can be used to clean a toilet:

Pour a can of Carbonated drink into the toilet bowl.after 1 hour flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.

 

Carbonated drinks are helpful to clean corrosion from car battery terminals : Pour a can of carbonated drink over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion

 

Carbonated drinks are helpful in removing grease from clothes : Pour a can of Carbonated drink into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. They will help loosen grease stains

PURE WATER CONCEPTS

AquaPacificL Now we are living in the age in which everywhere we can find huge demand for water.

“Water Water everywhere, but no water to Drink”

Thinking about water took me to the word, PURE WATER? Which water is 100% pure? Many marketing campaigns about bottled waters try to convince us that water must be "pure" to be good.

Natural water has mineral content and after removing minerals, water becomes acidic and will try to replace some of the  minerals. So consuming natural water after demineralization will be more dangerous as it may dissolve the mineral content in our body.

Good water can be produced by distillation but some gases, and organic compounds will still remain in distilled water.

Rain water is considered as safe and pure, but rainwater collects particles and chemicals when it falls through the atmosphere.

Reverse osmosis is another method to purify water. Unfortunately, some bacteria, and gases still remain in that water.

HOW WATER CAN BE IMPURE?

Generally water is considered as impure if it contains any or all of the following.

A. Microbes

Coliform bacteria are bacteria known to be harmless, but its presence is not recommended in drinking water.

Fecal Coliform and E coli are bacteria that can cause  diarrhoea, cramps, nausea etc.

Cryptosporidium is a parasite that  causes cryptosporidiosis, a mild gastrointestinal disease.

Giardia lamblia is another parasite that gastrointestinal diseases like diarrhea, vomiting, cramps etc

B. Radionuclide

1. Radon Gas – Radon Gas in water is very dangerous and may produce cancer on prolonged use

2. Alpha and Beta/photon emitters - People who consume water containing these radioactive compounds have an increased risk of getting cancer.

3. Combined Radium 226/228 - People who consume water containing these radioactive compounds have an increased risk of getting cancer.

C. Inorganic Contaminants

The presence of inorganic compounds in drinking water also will lead to multiple diseases. Drinking water should be free from Asbestos, Antimony, Barium, Bismuth, Beryllium, Copper, Chromium, Cyanide, Lead, Mercury, Selenium, Thallium etc

Huge quantities of Copper found in Tap water is one of the cause of development of Alzheimer's disease. So elimination of Copper from all waters seem to have one advantage.

D. Poisons and Disinfectants

The presence of poisons and disinfectants such as Chlorine, DDT, BHC, Chloramines, Halo acetic acids, Bromated, Chlorite, MTBE ( fuel additive)  will lead to serious health issues.

E. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

The presence of VOC such as Benzene, Dichloromethane, Toluene, Vinyl Chloride etc or products that contain these substances are  hazardous to health.

FOOD POISONING

stomach-ache-t14815

Food poisoning can be described as any disease state resulting from the consumption of contaminated food. Here I would like to give a small outline about Food Poisoning. I am sure that my post is not enough in providing all details. Still, i will narrate some details.

Usually there are two types of food poisoning:

A. Food infection

Food infection cause due to the presence of bacteria or any other microbes which infect the body after consumption of food.

B. Food intoxication

Food intoxication refers to the ingestion of toxins contained within the food, including bacterially produced exotoxins.

Food poisoning usually caused by unhygienic habits, improper handling, preparation, and storage of food. Food safety is one of the major issues in current world. World Health Organization gives top priority to implement food safety.

Some tips to remember in Food Poisoning

* Avoid consumption of more food, milk products, caffeine and carbonated products if you feel that you have food poisoning.

* Consume Ginger or Garlic as it detoxifies the intestine

* Eat plain bread, as it soaks the poison to provide relief

* After your meal you can drink a cup of ginger tea which will help to get good digestion. Ginger is very useful in providing relief from heartburn and stomach spasm

* Gentle heat may be applied to the stomach to relieve spasm or backache. This will help to

* Don't consume any food if you feel that it is producing bad odour and colour changes.

* If you have vomiting or diarrhoea, then drink fluids as much you can to combat the loss of fluids.


* If you are constantly vomiting or having continuous diarrhea from food poisoning, you should seek medical care at the earliest.

BEST remedy for food poisoning and upset stomach is:

7 Healthy Foods Without Blowing Your Food Budget

How can a person stretch their food budget without buying cheap, empty calories in processed foods? We all think that fresh lean meats, fish, and fruits and vegetables are the healthiest choices but are not always affordable, right?

Wrong! It is a myth that the healthiest foods are the most expensive. With a list and a plan, it is possible to eat healthy without blowing your food budget or sacrificing those hard-earned results.

Healthy Foods #1: Soy

Want the best nutrition for about $3 a day? Invest your money in a meal replacement shake that is soy-based. This is the health communities best kept secret. Not only does it fill you up for hours, but it contains proper nutrition to get your body back to the way it was when you felt proud of it. You can find it in many different flavors and basically, you just add milk and fresh fruit to it. This is what fast food should really be like.

Healthy Foods #2: Beans

Beans are versatile and nutritious, with a variety of flavors and colors to choose from. Beans are one of the best sources of dietary fiber, which can help lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar. Beans are also high in protein and low in calories. Since beans can be incorporated into almost any recipe or eaten alone, you will have tons of cheap, healthy meal possibilities.

Healthy Foods #3: Eggs

At about $1 to $2 a dozen, and only 75 calories each, eggs are a healthy bargain. Forget about the worry of cholesterol because egg consumption contributes less than 1 percent to the risk of heart disease when other factors are considered. Eggs have a high proportion of nutrients to calories, which means that they help you stay full and energized while helping you maintain a healthy weight. Enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner in bakes and omelets, or hard cooked in salads.

Healthy Foods #4: Pasta 

Pasta is tasty, filling, and always an economical way to feed one person or a crowd. It is low in sodium and fat and high in complex carbohydrates, which helps you maintain a consistent energy level. Pasta is also fortified with folic acid, an essential nutrient. Since pasta is easy to combine with other foods, including vegetables, meats, and sauces (no...not alfredo!, you can literally eat it every day and feel as tough you are always having a new dish.

Healthy Foods #5: Sweet Potatoes 

Sweet Potatoes and yams are also versatile foods that are nutritious and economical. They are low in sodium, calories and filling, easy to cook, and loaded with vitamins A and C, iron, and thiamine. They also contain beta-carotene and are a good source of fiber. They can be baked, microwaved, or cooked in boiling water. Start by using them in place of white potatoes.

Healthy Foods #6: Brown Rice 

One bag of brown rice can provide as many as 20 servings. Talk about stretching your dollar! The great thing about brown rice is that it can be combined with an assortment of other ingredients so you can get different tastes. Since it is a great source of fiber, vitamin B, iron, manganese, and selenium, it boosts your immune system, lowers cholesterol, and reduces the risks of heart disease and diabetes.

Healthy Foods #7: Frozen Fruits And Vegetables 

While fresh, raw fruits and vegetables that are in season should always be a first choice, having a supply of frozen vegetables in the freezer is an inexpensive, nutritious, and versatile backup plan. They retain almost all of their nutritional value, since they're picked and frozen while at their peak nutrition and flavor. It is easy to reach for a bag of frozen vegetables and add them to any meal. Toss them in soy shakes, soups, stews, lasagna, or stir-fries. Let us not forget to really think about what we spend our money on at the grocery store. If you think salmon, shrimp and steak are too expensive, put back the package of Oreo cookies and the half gallon of ice cream and add up your total again. Sometimes we overlook the fact that small devilishly good processed snacks add up in a big way...on your grocery bill as well as your hips! Focus on eating the healthy foods listed above and you will be well on your way to saving money and keeping yourself healthy.

What this do to your body.

An article at news.bbc.co.uk shows that two molecules isolated from an extract pineapple have shown promise in fighting cancer growth.

One molecule CCS blocks a protein called Ras and the other CCZ, stimulates the immune system so it is more capable at killing cancer cells.

The enzyme in pineapple extract called bromelain that helps break down proteins and is used as a meat tenderizer and in clarifying beer and tanning leather.

You are advised to take this with your food at least 20 grams of PINEAPLLE SAVY per 50 kilograms of your body weight, once a day. This food is not advisable during pregnancy.
Ingredients:
Raw Pineapple : 1
Coconut - Half piece
Green capsicum : 3 pieces
Low fat Yoghurt : Half cup
Step 1.
Scrap the coconut and grind it with green chilly capsicum as a paste.
Step 2.

Remove the outer parts of pineapple, take the flesh and cut it into small pieces. Add salt as required and water to dip the pieces. Then boil pineapple for few minutes till it become soft. Let this to cool.
Step3.

Add half cup Yoghurt and the Paste in Step 1 to the boiled semisolid in Step 2. Stir well. And taste it.
Tips:
You can reduce the chilly taste by avoiding numbers of capsicum
If you don’t like chilly, then add sugar instead of capsicum and avoid salt in step 2
You may use coloring agents also to make it look good.

Lose Weight Quick with this Exceptional Weight Loss Advice: Just 3 Simple Steps!

By: Mick Bulmer

Lose weight quick, what everyone with weight problems wants to achieve. The quickest way to do this in a healthy and maintainable fashion is to speed up your metabolism to the point that your body simply cannot hold onto your fat reserves. This is exactly what I’m going to show you. It’s so quick you’ll have lost a couple of pounds by the end of this article.

What is your metabolism?

Your metabolic rate is the rate at which your body uses up the energy it creates. Ideally, you want a high metabolism so that your using the energy faster than your body is creating it. This prevents fat storage and causes you to lose weight quick.

Speeding up your metabolism so you lose weight quick can be done in the following ways. Listed in order of precedence:

Build muscle through a weight training or resistance program Eat small meals regular Eat foods that take longer to digest

Building muscle This is the most important aspect of speeding up your metabolism. The goal is to create a high muscle to fat ratio. This means your body is comprised of significantly more muscle than fat.

Weight and resistance training are the best methods of building muscle. I recommend you do a 20 minute intensive session every other day. However, you must train with weight loss in mind. Check out the best exercise for weight loss page to find out how to do this properly.

Eat small meals regular Overloading your stomach is one of the best ways to put on weight quick. In contrast, eating small amounts regular is a great way to speed up your metabolism and lose weight quick. Therefore, you should try to eat 5-6 small meals per day. The more often you eat smaller meals the better.

You might think, well, isn’t a calorie a calorie no matter what time I eat it. This is traditional thinking and is simplified to the point that it’s plain wrong. You see, calories are used up in the digestion process so the longer you keep your digestion running the more energy you use and weight you lose. This is called the thermic effect of food and leads nicely into point 3.

Eat foods that take longer to digest Foods that take longer to digest and use up more energy in the digestion process have a high thermic effect of food. Eating more foods with a high thermic effect and less food with a low thermic effect will speed up your metabolism and help with weight loss.

Protein burns 25% of the calories consumed in the digestion process and fibre burns a little less. Carbs burn 15% of calories in the digestion process and fat burns hardly any. Therefore, you should consume more fiber and protein, a moderate amount of carbs and virtually no fat, to get maximum effect.

3 relatively simple alterations to your lifestyle and you’ll begin to lose weight quick with very little effort. So In black and white you should:

Weight train for 20 minutes every other day Eat 5-6 small meals every day Eat more protein and fiber

Follow this advice and you’ll lose weight quick and keep the weight off for life.

PAIRING FOOD AND WINE-BEST WAY TO ENJOY MEAL

By: Steve Manik

If you think that you only need to have the best food in the world to enjoy a meal for the special occasion in your life, you are wrong. Try pairing this meal with a perfect type of brand of wine that goes well with the food items and then see the difference. You would simply enjoy the experience. In earlier days, people used to combine food with wine in order to form good pairing. This helped them to come up with a combination that’s enough to light up any occasion.

These days, people are aware of different types of wines, their properties and grapes used in the formation process. They have also tasted a variety of cuisines form different parts of world such as the Chinese, Thai, American and Indian cuisines. However, they are not aware of pairing food and wine in a proper manner so as to form a great combination that everyone can enjoy.

In fact, you may end up creating a bad quality of food and wine if you fail to pair them correctly. These may include bad experiences such as extra sweetness, bitterness, too much of alcohol or metallic. You can follow a lot of methods in order to avoid incorrect pairing of food and wine.

First and foremost, you should make a point that each time you pair a food item and wine together, the combination individually should consist of similar characteristics.

For instance, you can easily pair flavored red wine with any type of food that is thickly flavored such as porter. The reason is that both porter and red wine consist of strong flavors. You should never mix and pair food and wines that possess different characteristics. For instance, if you pair steak with sweet wine, you would end up getting awful results. Pairing foods and wines with distinct characteristics can be a very bad experience for you.

You need to pair wine and food in proper combination because this will add up a unique and beautiful element to your dish. If you want to pour butter and garlic sauce over chicken, you should combine it with wine that gives out citrus taste. This will provide you an opportunity to taste a superb meal. Try to be creative. Always try to find out a way that can mix wine and food of similar flavors and enjoy the result.

Try to test the combination that you have created prior to serving it to your friends. If you are looking forward to have high flavored wine, you should mix it with barbeque meals and some other dishes with high flavor range.

If you pair high flavored dish with light flavored wine, the dish will over power the wine. You would taste more of food and less amount of wine. In fact, you would feel that you were just having a dish and nothing else. Don’t try to experiment something weird and strange. The key is to small and taste the food prior to actually claiming it to be a recipe
