Frankly, This is the Truth about a Healthy Fit Life and Wellness
I guess that's life---you can do what you can but you often end up guessing what happens next.

But then, you also have to be exact. Accurate.

Truth is, you don't know what's coming to you, whether you'd still be in good health tomorrow or not. You may have the best of health today but you don't know about an hour or day after if that would still hold true.

Health condition can drastically change in a moment.

Of course, they tell us to keep positive about it all. And we have to. I believe that with all my heart.

Yet, at the same time, we have to lean on the Creator---the Author of life, health and healing---depending on Him entirely and not being too confident about ourselves and what we do, can do and achieve.

There are two extreme views on this---no, three:

1. Others eat all they want, do no exercises, abuse their health and then claim that their faith in God will save them from ailments---relying "entirely" on God and keeping positive about it all.

2. On the other hand, there are those who rely solely on their rigid workouts, sophisticated diets and fitness supplements, laughing at any hint of Divine intervention.

3. Third are those who imagine themselves neutral or in between. They eat a little of this and that, think that their travel to work is enough exercise for them (they don't want to over exert themselves), and they believe a bit of this and that about God.

So, where do you belong?

In my case, I do what fits my body and lifestyle, eat what's healthy for me, and then rely entirely on God, depending on his grace on a daily basis. It's both spiritual and scientific.

It's not a little of everything but complete ingredients of what you really need.

I have learned that in life, you have to do what is right. But remember---even doing the right things will go dead wrong if you leave out God from it. It's not how right you are but how faithful.

When done this way, God catches you when you fall. I mean, there may be important things or details you forget to do in life, but if you rely on God by faith, he still completes the picture for you.

By grace, everything becomes exact---becomes well. That's wellness.

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…
