LOVE YOUR BODY FROM INSIDE OUT…!

006-05zW25x you are what you eat

Weight loss can be achieved by balancing a healthy level of physical activity with eating a Nutritious diet.
Crash diets, Tad diets and “YOYO” dieting do not help you lose weight. They can also cause stress and increase the likelihood of binge eating

The best way of loosing excess body fat is to make small, small, healthy changes to your eating and exercise habits..
Please let the change be something you can maintain, as part of your lifestyle in that way you will lose weight and keep it off.
To some they’ll barely make any efforts, while to some others the road to this is very tedious. I’ll advice you to start loving the PACKAGE YOU CARRY..  meaning every one of us has a responsibility to pimp and revamp our bodies via healthy NUITRAINTS.. Trust me, your body will thank you later.

Think about when and why you overeat? If you can avoid unplanned or habitual eating and keep to regular meals. There a wide variety of food from all food groups. Do well to check that you eat in the various food groups. Wholegrain bread and cereal, veggies, fruits, lots of water, diary, meat fish, legumes, if possible choose a low-fat varieties. Cut down on on saturated fat. Food should not be your comforter, especially when you are frustrated or angry .

YOGA is another wonderful way of relaxing and meditating.. it is never too late to pick on any sports of your choice.. make it a habit like I will always advice you

Broccoli the Super or the Secret – (The Veg with an Afro)

It’s Fall, best time for cold, many do not know that Broccoli is a super Vitamin C good for colds.  Apart from that Broccoli

many health benefits we can profit from:Health Benefits of Broccoli

We know that vegetables have an impressive way of offering widespread benefits to your health, and broccoli is no exception. When you eat broccoli, you’re getting dozens, maybe even hundreds, of super-nutrients that support optimal, body-wide health.

Benefits of Broccoli

Arthritis: Recent tests on cells, tissues and mice show that a sulfur-rich broccoli compound, sulforaphane, blocks a key destructive enzyme that damages cartilage.1 It’s thought that increasing broccoli in your diet may help to slow down and even prevent osteoarthritis.

Cancer: In this study, the researchers collected tissue samples over the course of the study and found that the men who ate broccoli showed hundreds of beneficial changes in genes known to play a role in fighting cancer. Sulforaphane in broccoli has also been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby striking to the root of tumor growth, and the broccoli compound glucoraphanin — a precursor to sulforaphane – boosts cell enzymes that protect against molecular damage from cancer-causing chemicals

Blood Pressure and Kidney Health:Sulforaphane in broccoli may also significantly improve your blood pressure and kidney function, according to yet another study in which hypertensive rats with impaired kidney function were given sulforaphane. The natural compound improved the rats’ kidney function and lowered their blood pressure by normalizing DNA methylation patterns within their cells

Central nervous system:Broccoli contains high levels of potassium that can help in optimal functioning of brain, to keep healthy central nervous system and promotes regular development of muscles too.

Anti-Aging and Immune System Health:In theory, this means that eating vegetables that contain sulforaphane, such as broccoli, could quite literally slow down the hands of time. Sulforaphane also seems to stimulate a variety of antioxidant defense pathways in your body that can directly reduce oxidative stress and slow down the decline in your immune system that happens with age

Heart Health, Especially for Diabetics: Sulforaphane encourages production of enzymes that protect the blood vessels, and reduces the number of molecules that cause cell damage — known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)

Is rich in beneficial nutrients like potassium, calcium, protein and vitamin C. Which is good for COLDS
