'Tis the Season to be Fat...and How to Overcome It During the Holidays

realmealrevolution.com
I and my wife went to a lot of special dinners this December, and you won't believe the kinds of delicious foods served us. Just imagine eating at Vikings Marikina.

No wonder then so many people gain weight during the holidays. Not only that, tragically, Christmas is also said to record the most number of heart attacks during the year, said an article on DFW.CbsLocal.Com titled Fatal Heart Attacks Occur on Christmas More than Any Other Day in 2014.

"Researchers, more than a decade ago, found that more fatal heart attacks occur on Christmas Day than any other day of the year," the article said. "The 2nd busiest day is December 26th and the 3rd busiest is January 1st.

"The pattern has continued for so long that health care workers coined the term 'Christmas Coronary'."

But probably more than suffering a heart attack, most people are worried about getting fatter after Christmas and New Year's. Aside from eating and drinking too much, December is also when you often feel too tired and lazy to workout. The late night occasions lead to lack of sleep that make you languid the next day and the following days.

So, what do I do to overcome getting fatter during Christmas?

The answer--simple workouts that can be done as soon as I stand up from my small office cubicle at home--or as soon as I get home and rested from massive dinner invitations. To me, the important thing is, I don't need to go to the gym for the needed workout or prepare workout equipment at home. My simple fitness system that involves no special equipment enables me to be at it quickly.

The keys to easy fitness are--it should be simple and easy, easily available, where you are.

Well, it's different of course if you aim to be Mr. Universe or The Incredible Hulk. But if you just want to be fit to live life well, then you should take a peek at my fitness system, which is ideal for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget.

Watch out for my soon coming e-book on it.

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…
