So, You Come From a Family of Fat People--Are You Sure Your Family's to Blame?
It's not your family, genes, or the way God made you that's to blame. I don't know if that's good or bad news to you. Well, it's good news because there's still hope for losing weight even if everyone in your family is overweight.

Bad news is, you can't blame genes or family fat anymore for being overweight. No more excuses.

Experts say it has nothing to do with family or genetics and has everything to do with what you do to yourself. In short, lifestyle.

Well, if you come from a family of fat people, it may mean you may need to work a bit more at losing weight, but your choice is what really counts in the end. Are you going to settle for that (family's to blame) or are you going to change all that?

Right choices can easily overcome wrong unfavorable dispositions. If I were you, I'd change all that and determine to get my ideal weight.


I mean, Epigenetics experts have already said so--who are we novices to contradict? Epigenetics studies how other factors, aside from genes or DNA, affect fat storage in the body and many more.

Yup, epigenetics says no one is destined to be overweight forever.

Have you seen "The Biggest Loser" on TV? You saw how big they all were? And then after hard work, they managed to lose weight incredibly! That's evidence enough that epigenetics works. They simply changed their lifestyles and environments.

Here are some Tips for You

One way is to get your liver healthier. The liver has lots to do with fat burning aside from removing toxins from the body. It's easy to imagine what happens to you if you give your liver added work--overeating. The more junks you eat the more unnecessary added work you give your liver.

What I do is eat healthy natural food I know won't cause my liver to overwork. Drink natural and fresh fruit juices as often as you can. I love fresh coconut juice (there you are! I just gave away a precious tip probably worth $500!).

Don't keep eating the whole day. Yes, you may eat small meals more often, but make sure they're not something that would stress out your liver and digestive system. If you eat a lot, limit eating to 3 times a day, and try to cut down on fatty food.

You want to have a healthy liver? Do water therapy each morning (at 5 am daily I drink 3 tall glasses). Eat more fiber rich vegetables, limit cooking oil, and enjoy lots of fresh fruit juices like kalamansi. Kalamansi juice is great!

Did I mention anything expensive? They're all for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget.

Yes, it' not your family. It's really YOU.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
