Many of us love nuts.  Some says that nuts makes the memory sharp.  That’s why some parents asked their children to eat nuts before going to take an examination.  Nuts (without salt or sugar) contain mono and polyunsaturated fats which are good for insulin sensitivity and serum cholesterol. So if your blood sugar is high, eat at least five pieces of almonds or walnuts daily.

Cornstarch isn’t just for making gravy.  Cornstarch helps control high blood-sugar levels. It could even prevent an attack of hypoglycemia.  It is effective for type 1 diabetics prone to low blood-glucose levels.  Diabetics who consume a mixture of uncooked cornstarch in a drink without sugar (milk or sugar-free soda) find themselves waking up in the morning with fewer problems. Ask your doctor about this natural solution.

Controlling cough

Heartburn is often the culprit for one in every 10 chronic coughers. Solution? Eat a banana, which is a great acid neutralizer. Or expel the toxins:

Have a bowl of hot soup. This can loosen mucus.
Drink warm liquids and water. Avoid ice-cold beverages.
Take a hot shower or steam bath.
Take olive leaf extract, a syrupy health tonic that will ease your itchy throat and speed up healing time. Call 0922-8820575.
Stop smoking.

Beauty and first aid

Aloe vera has many uses. The clear jelly-like sap is good for insect bites, cuts and burns. An anti-inflammatory, it is also a good oral suppository.

Carbo, protein can cause weight gain – 1 January 2, 2009

Natural fat is best. Eggs, animal meats, butter, cheeses, vegetable oils all contain fat. But it’s considered natural for they are not substitutes. This kind of fat isn’t harmful to the body when taken in moderation.

What is considered deadly is processed fat which can be found in hydrogenated oils and overheated fat as in fried foods.

If disease is caused by inflammation, a diet of anti-inflammatory foods can prevent and treat disease. This is based on an article entitled “Effects of Lipids on Cancer Therapy” by C. Patrick Burns, MD, and Arthur Spector, MD. Increase your intake of Omega-3 fats (fish oils).

Fish fat is good for the heart and brain. At any rate, the rule is eat a little bit of everything.

Starvation diets don’t work. This can upset your internal system of burning fuel which your body needs regularly. So if your body runs on food as fuel, don’t wonder why you feel weak each time you withhold food. Withdrawal from food leads to overeating. So, the best way to diet is to eat regularly.

Carbo = protein. They have the same calories. Therefore, if you want to lose weight, don’t combine them. Eating both carbo and protein can cause weight gain, unless you exercise regularly.

Sweets are irresistible. And I am referring to sweetness versus real sugar. If you need to sweeten your coffee/tea, try coco sugar/coco honey fresh from the nectar of coconut or honey which is packed with anti-bacterial properties.

Honey mask

Start the day with 1 tbsp of honey after 2 glasses of warm water. Add one extra tbsp of honey and rub it on your face. It is a soothing balm for the face.

Note: If you wish to avoid artificial sweeteners (as studies have connected these to headaches and weight gain), read the label of the product carefully. If you have an addiction to sugar, cut back on your carbohydrate intake.

GREAT FAT NEWS:  Eating more fat-not less-helps you keep weight off, according to new research.  Dieters followed either a moderate-fat plan (35 percent of calories from fat) or a lower fat one (20 percent of calories from fat).  Only the moderate-fat dieters kept that weight off.  The low-fat dieters regained much of the weight by the study’s end.

Sure, low-fat diets will help you lose, but broiling and steaming gets boring, so dieters may return to their old eating habits, and weight rebounds.  Food with fats seems to better satisfy hunger. 

Eat healthy fat.  Our dieters ate mostly monounsaturated fats, the heart-healthy kind found in nuts, avocados and olive oil.  Limit saturated fat (think steak)  and have hardly any of the artery-harming trans fats found in processed foods.  Trans fat, also known as hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats, is a staple in many fast food menus.  Trans fat is very harmful to the arteries and are found to be involved with heart disease and cancer.  Studies have already proven that an increase of only 2 percent trans fat in a person elevates the risk of heart disease by 36 percent.

Keep portion trim.  For instance a handful of nuts is a great snack, a bowlfull is not.

Instead of raw veggies … try cooking them in 1 T canola oil.

Instead of toast with low-calorie jelly … try toast with 2 tsp peanut butter.

Instead of reduced-fat dressing … try 1 T olive oil with vinegar.

Instead of fat-free croutons … try 4 balck olives.
