Health Motto for 2016: Stick to What You Learned

behealthy.one
What's really funny--and wasteful--is learning something on health only later to forget all about it. I've seen folks who exerted so much effort attending health seminars or researching about health facts, only to go back living an unhealthy lifestyle.

I understand how more tempting it is to be lax with health or go all-out for junk foods (and lifestyles). When I see and smell a juicy and thick pork chop being grilled and hear it sizzling, I just want to forget about health and devour it. I love the succulent juicy oil sticking around my lips.

But then I remember everything I heard from health seminars and quickly decide to stick to what I learned and forget about pork chops and steaks. Then I find it easy to fight the temptation--something like, what shall it profit a man if he enjoys all juicy and tender pork chops and steaks but loses his health altogether--and ends up so, so sick?

That's not to mention the hospital bills accompanying.

One time, I actually told someone to throw the delicious but unhealthy food to the trash. He said he didn't want to "waste" food.

Waste food? Eating unhealthy food is the worst wastage of all--you waste your health and later waste lots of money paying for medicines and hospital bills. And what made this more ridiculous was that the guy had just watched a video on the harmful effects of eating unhealthily.

Often, we think these are all just a joke. But the joke stops the moment we're rushed to the ICU for a serious ailment.

I even heard about guys who were so health conscious once upon a time when they were into selling and networking health products. But then they decided to just forget about health when they quit dealing with health products and instead marketed beauty products.

As for me, I always stick to what I learned. That's Choy's Cut for you, Choy's best for 2016. And it's also for 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…

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&#…
