This is Probably Why Your Body Refuses to Lose Weight

www.defininghopes.com
Slow metabolism is one reason why your body probably refuses to lose weight. No matter what your diet or workout is, you may have to know how to beat slow metabolism to produce substantial results.

But wait!

Did you know there's something more powerful than metabolism?

It's called the will--intellectual will to be precise. A lot of things in life really depends on what the mind wills. I've read books and articles about how some doctors gave placebo pills to their patients just to help them develop a mental will to get well. I've also read stuffs about how some patients who got worse even if they had a good chance of recovering and were taking the best medicines, just because they'd lost the will to live.

In fact, some who are healthy feel terribly sick because that's what their intellectual will makes them feel.

Often, it's all in the mind. And weight loss is often like that.

What good would healthy diets and workouts do you if deep inside you believe you'd always be fat? That you were designed to gain weight? That nothing you do would work?

I'm not saying weight loss is just a matter of thinking minus all physical efforts. You have to come up with a healthy balance of healthy diet, workout, rest, fun, supplements, and a conducive intellectual will. Be a well rounded individual. On top of everything, stay happy.

There will always be negative thoughts roaming around in your mind. An unconscious will to fail. It's normal, we all have that. But the thing is to brush it aside and fill your thoughts with the correct mental will.

I'm telling you, there is nothing impossible in life--if you just believe it--especially if you do things with God. I love the ad phrase--Impossible is Nothing.

Whether trying to lose weight or getting rid of an ailment--try positive thinking or better yet, a positive mental will. Fill in the blank: "I will _______ with God's grace!"

I'm not saying it will always work. I'm saying, it's always worth doing. So what if it doesn't work? At least, it will make things easier. But I'm telling you, it can work! You can make it happen--with God!

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 …

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…
