YES, THEY'RE DELICIOUS: But You Have to STOP Eating Them If You Want to Live Long

bowelcanceruk.org.uk
I know a few people who hate these delicious food items and they're about a hundred plus years old now. In fact, I had a grandfather from Catmon, Sta. Maria, Bulacan who lived over a hundred and still carried 50 kilos of rice. He was a member of the Katipunan in his teen years and he lived to see me as a teenager. Amazing.

What did he eat? Nothing but organic veggies he planted in his backyard, mostly string beans, and he never had high uric acid levels. And especially, he didn't eat these delicious junks because they weren't available yet in his days.

Processed Meats are definitely a no-no. But who can avoid them these days? They're the quickest things to cook when you're in a dead hurry and they're easy to buy. They're beautifully packed and sold in nice air-conditioned groceries unlike raw meat and fish which you buy in messy wet markets. Anyway, you have to stop eating them.

Margarine, whether the best brand or not, puts your heart at risk, along with your blood sugar. Health experts say butter is better. But again, margarine is more readily available in street corner stores and groceries than butter is. If it's so unhealthy, how come margarine is sold more easily than butter? Tell me. Anyway, stop eating it.

Sweet cereals taste good and though they give you dietary fibers, they're also rich in sugar--which is so bad for your heath. But cereals are so perfect for breakfast and if they're so bad for the health, how come they're so delicious? Isn't there another way around this? It's among my favorite breakfast choices next to pancakes. But, just the same, you have to stop eating them.

Burgers are in and they make it a lot tastier these days. But don't think you get a lot of protein from them. Commercialized burgers have only about 2 to 14 percent meat, says one Yahoo News, and the rest are crap, even extenders like flour. I love huge burgers with lots of cheese and lettuce and tomatoes. But, experts say, you have to stop eating them if you want to live longer.

Donuts come in varied tasty and really delicious flavors today. Years ago they were just rolled in sugar and that was it. I love donuts that taste like ice cream, but now you have to stop eating them. You get zero nutrition from them and they just make you fat. Period.

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&#…
