The "You" in Three Versions
You actually have three awareness in you. Your "you" is in three versions---the spirit you, the soul you and the body you. They're all you.

But sometimes they're all different. So you appear "inconsistent" to people.

They have to be in harmony if you're going to be a healthy and fit person. In fact, the three have to be in unity if you're going to have a sound personality and a good life.

Everything goes wrong the moment the three disagree and act separately. The spirit believes one thing but the soul reinforces another thing. And then the body does something on its own as well.

For instance, your spirit believes the principle that you should avoid softdrinks and sodas because they create belly fat in you. But your soul says something else. Your mind thinks of a tall glass of iced softdrinks, your emotion craves for it and your will is ready to do it.

But then you see a bottle of beer and you change mind and drink it instead (the body triumphs over the mind).

Thus, many times you find yourself raising your hands when someone asks, "Who among you here knows that softdrinks is bad for health?" That's your spirit responding.

But right after, you go to the snack bar and look for soda. That's your soul. And then you order one and actually drink it. That's your body obeying your soul (or your soul succumbing to your body).

Or, your soul tells you it's bad but your body ignores it.

Once this happens daily, it's easy to see why you end up physically unfit and unhealthy. Your "you" is never united. Your "you" is never one.

Spirit, soul and body unity should be a daily thing for life. You should begin to train in this.

Next topic---why this tug of war among the three in you and how to overcome it.

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…
