Eat These 5 Foods If You Have Sleeping Problems

www.cumbria-hypnosis.com
I thank God I don't have any sleeping problems. I sleep early and wake up early, getting some 6 to 7 hours of sleep daily. But some people can't. I like to help them out with these food suggestions:

1. Cherries

Cherries are good berries for enhancing sleep. You say we have no cherries in the Philippines except bottled and preserved ones? Try fresh Aratilis.

2. Walnuts

These are rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that promotes sleep by helping the body produce more serotonin and melatonin. Furthermore, the University of Texas discovered that walnuts give you more melatonin on it's own. So, you'd sleep faster with these nuts.

3. Almonds

They are rich in magnesium, exactly what you need for quality sleep. A study featured on the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine said magnesium lack causes you to find it hard to stay asleep.

4. Cheese and Crackers

This is probably the easiest food you can find around when you have trouble sleeping. Truth is, dairy foods help you go to sleep, so count in milk as well. Dairies are rich in calcium which affects the brain's use of tryptophan for melatonin production.

5. Lettuce

It has lactucarium which has a sedating effect on the brain, like what opium does.

Since these foods are not hard to find, you shouldn't be having anymore sleeping problems from now on. And, always eat meals on time. Habitual late night dinners, for instance, will eventually cause sleeping problems.

There you have it on Choy's Cut---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…

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&#…

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.
