ON BEING FOOD DETECTIVE: The Wiser You Become the Less You Eat Just Anything

autismspectrumgps.com
FOOD AND HEALTH. When I was young I ate anything. I thought, anyway, I was a workout-holic (a guy who always works out physically), so anything I ate was neutralized by it. But then with research I found out that it wasn't that simple. Truth is, what you swallow has lasting effects in and on you which workout mostly cannot re-do or improve on.

For instance, all the aspartame you swallow is forever in your system, especially in your bones. What's aspartame? It's the wicked sweetener used in many powdered juices and other beverages in the market today. It's even in most sodas and softdrinks you love. After enough accumulation, it may give you cancer if your immune system is weak. And foods with artificial sugars weaken your immune system.

As you learn these things in your constant search for knowledge (at first I was just an online health researcher. Later, I became a licensed health and wellness consultant of Vital-C) you change your lifestyle and wisen up. And I learned that the wiser you become the lesser you eat just anything. You start finding out the ingredients in food products and carefully look up product contents on labels. Any term you can't understand you look up on Google.

You become a food detective.

Sometimes, you have no choice but to eat junk when you're out of the house. But now your conscience bothers you when you do it--unlike before when you just ate anything and then forgot about them. Now, you sometimes can't stop imagining what the ingredients are doing inside your body after you swallow unhealthy junk food. You do all you can to detox--take alkaline water, do water therapy in the morning, drink kalamansi or other fresh fruit juice, and of course, pray.

Oh, taking apple cider vinegar with water is among the best ways to detox. Costs less, too.

To me, a truly wise person is always after good health--spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial. It's a total waste to know lots of things and then remain willingly unhealthy. You're a fool who learns everything but never see truth.

"..always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth." [2 Timothy 3.7]

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
