You Want to Really Sweat Out Toxins and Burn Fat? Here's What You Should Do

jimbuchan.com
I wake up at 5 am but go out to run at 7 am or later. Why? I need to do a lot of house chores first. My wife and high school kid need my help in the morning so they can make it to their schools on time.

Before that, last summer vacation, I was able to run earlier---at 6 am when the day was still cool. But these school days, this seems almost impossible.

But I discovered something.

I found that jogging at 8 am made you sweat double or triple than if you ran earlier in the morning. Like this morning. I ran at past 8 am and man, did I sweat a lot! And I feel my stamina has also doubled, being able to run under harsher conditions, like a hotter day.

Just make sure it's not too hot for you. Avoid suffering heat strokes. And drink enough water before, during and after.

If you can jog on a hot day (but not too hot), it'd make running on a cool day a piece of cake. You can easily beat cool-day runners in physical endurance. It'll also strengthen your heart and lungs.

Just don't punish yourself too much. If I feel I've run fast enough for some seconds and my lungs are about to give way, I often slow down or brisk walk. Then, after I catch my breath. I run again. But never stop. You have to keep walking. You may slow down walking but don't stop.

Check with your medical doctor first before you try this.

Jogging and running at 8 am and onward makes me sweat a lot, and I mean A LOT! Imagine the immense detox and fat burning you get! But make sure to stop before 9 am. a 30- to 40-minute jog is good enough for the day. Anyway, I still have my shadow boxing right after.

Here's how to complicate your run on a very hot day (if you don't want to complicate matters, don't run on a very hot day. Running at 8 am is enough. But we can get some lessons from this video, anyway/ So, here it is:

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…
