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.

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&#…
