Tons of Health Benefits You Miss If You Ignore Pineapples [Plus Super Fast Way of Peeling Them in Video]
Pineapple is among my top favorite fruits. I so love them especially when they're really ripe. Aside from their juicy fruitiness and rich fibrous texture, they're very high in Vitamin C when eaten fresh. They're also high in manganese. 

Pineapples are also among the best fruits for weight loss. Aside from it's Vitamin C fat burner, it gets rid of constipation which, if remain unchecked, can disrupt fat storage and regulation and store fat in the wrong places. Oh yes, pineapple is the best against constipation. I highly recommend it.

It has zero fats and cholesterol. and because it is high in fibers, you may eat enough to kill your hunger pains in-between meals. Eating it can easily make you feel full without adding to your weight. It is rich in potassium and (again) Vitamin C (I love reminding everyone about that). It also has a bit of Vitamin A, protein, sodium, some sugars (natural fructose), calcium and iron.

But mind you--always prefer fresh pineapples to canned ones. The canned ones almost only have fibers in them, nothing more, plus double the carbs and synthetic sugar in syrup--making you fat. That harms health more than promotes it.

According to LiveScience.Com, pineapples strengthen bones, promotes eye health, healthy digestion, fights inflammation (especially sinus and and common cold) and reduces blood clots.

I'd often eat fresh pineapples if I were you. It costs P30 in Manila per regular-size fruit. The smaller ones can cost around P10 to P20--the ones they sell along sidewalks which they peel right before your eyes. Ideal for your cheap heath and fitness with middle income budget.

And talking of peeling pineapples, Choy's Cut features this amazing new way of peeling them. My first time to see it done this way. Now I know. Watch the video:

And do watch out for my upcoming e-book on my secrets to simple and cheap fitness easy to maintain.

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…
