Calorie Burning Heart Enzymes

www.ovelaclinic.com
These are natural enzymes in the body that burn calories and help you lose weight. One is called cardiac natriuretic peptides. Researchers discovered how they turned white fat cells that stored energy into "energy-burning brown fat," according to the site WebMD. Well, so far, they saw this in mice.

But some researchers believe that what's possible with mice can often be possible with humans.

Brown fats are like furnaces in the body, burning calories instead of just storing them to add on to your weight. If the heart enzymes could turn human white fat cells into brown fat, then this could lead into a great breakthrough in weight loss, says Sheila Collins, PhD and researcher at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute in Orlando, Fla.

Moreover, the heart enzyme fat-burning action could work together with the fat storage and regulation of the adrenaline system to further weight loss. And what cold stimulate brown fat to burn more calories?

By exposure to cold. As simple as that.

Simply stay in cold places--aircon rooms or malls--and wait for your body metabolism to burn more calories. Accordingly, in cold places nearing shivering conditions, metabolic rate increases by 80 percent and could burn about 250 calories in merely 3 hours. That's brown fat burning your ordinary fat and helping you lose weight literally "without a sweat."

Here are other ways to stimulate brown fat:
  • Just eat enough, not over-starving or over-stuffing yourself.
  • Eat apples. Ursolic acid in apple peel boosts brown fat in mice. Probably the same in humans.
  • Exercise.
  • Lower room temperature.
  • More melatonin production by sleeping in the dark!
Keeping cool. Now, that's cheap health and fitness with middle income budget!

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…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

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…
