Quality VS Quantity

There are so many weight loss myths out there. I shared an uber with a personal trainer not long ago and I told her that I want to lose 10 lbs. She said I needed to eat MORE and she is RIGHT! When I did the body building competition I had to eat every 3 hours. I was consuming more calories and I was leaner. This is counter-intuitive: eat more*, weigh less. How is this possible? Because the calorie counting model that nutritionists teach is outdated and wrong. It's not about calories, it's about boosting metabolism (the rate your body BURNS calories). Also, not all calories are created equally. Refined white sugar carbs won't get rid of stubborn fat but a diet rich in green vegetable carbs and lean protein can. If you eat lean, clean and green, without skipping meals, drink plenty of water and exercise 5 days per week for an hour, you should be in good shape. If not, you need to research your body type (and maybe even blood type) and do some fine tuning according to your genetic constitution. Taking emotional inventory is also important to make sure food consumption is not being used as an emotional crutch.

*According to data from the Harvard Health Newsletter, after walking two 15-minute miles and weightlifting for 30 minutes, a 125-pound person burns only 210 calories and a 185-pound person burns 333 calories. So as you can see the calorie counting method just doesn't add up mathematically to the results that they claim are true.

If weight loss equaled calories consumed minus calories burned then all people eating 4,000+ calories per day should be morbidly obese (it's impossible to burn that much in a day with exercise*). But they are not necessarily, some have a very low body fat percentage. The movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, in order to maintain his legendary physique, eats more than 5,000 calories a day. The calories, spread over seven meals, include roughly 2.3 pounds of cod, a fish particularly rich in protein.


Case and Point: If I posted the visual aid above without the words and asked you which man ate 2,000 calories per day more than the other man, most people would guess that Patient X had the higher calorie consumption because he looks over-weight.
The truth is that it's not calories that count, it's metabolism. How do you boost metabolism? Small frequent meals and exercise. I am quite certain that WHAT they eat is also very different. The Standard American Diet is full of unhealthy fats, processed foods, additives, preservatives, food coloring and refined carbohydrates. THAT plus a sedentary lifestyle is why Patient X is Morbidly Obese while The Rock is, well... A beast & A LEGEND! You can eat more and weigh less. It's what you eat and how you eat it that matter too, not just numbers!!!
So stop counting your calories (unless you are in a body building competition) and start eating lean, clean, and green and GET MOVING! There is no magic pill for success, you put in the effort and time will do the rest.

Lastly, don't be fooled by appearances. Some people may look skinny on the outside but they could have a lot of fat around their organs on the inside and can actually be in bad cardiovascular shape. I remember in high school a very skinny girl (genetically vata ectomorph banana small frame) had 3% more body fat than I did (pitta mesomorph pear medium frame) and I was physically bigger than her. So looks can be deceiving.
The bottom line is that if you are not getting the results that you want then it may be time to modify your nutrition and fitness routine. 2019 is a great opportunity to do that. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.


If you don't believe eating clean works, here's my personal testimonial. When I was in graduate school I did the allergy elimination diet to try to find the source of my sinusitis. I ate only organic fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, gluten free grains including white rice, lamb, lentils, beans, and olive oil. I am 5'5" and I started off at 125 lbs. 6 weeks later I was down to 118 lbs. I went to my naturopathic clinic at school because I didn't like that I became so thin. My legs looked like I was riding a horse. I was eating PLENTY of calories but I could not keep the weight on. They advised me to eat more nut butters. The take home message is that your body will shed whatever it doesn't need when you give it what it does need! Our bodies need clean protein and vitamins and minerals from nutritious food. Eat good, feel good, look good. Good?

So when it comes to quality vs quantity, quality wins by a landslide!

No More Excuses! Your Health, Your Life, Your Body, Your Choice!

According to the American Medical Association, 1 out of 3 Americans is Obese.  Excess weight isn't only uncomfortable, it is also detrimental to health and wellbeing.  Who doesn't want to have more energy, have less health concerns, and feel more confident in their clothes?

People have all kinds of reasons why they don't exercise.  Here are some easy suggestions to bypass those excuses and get results!

#1 I DON'T HAVE TIME
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American works 40-50 hours per week. With this kind of schedule, it is indeed very challenging to find the time (and energy) to exercise but not impossible!  For those who are parents* and have to wake up early to take their kids to school, getting up 10-30 minutes earlier everyday may not be a viable option and after work, it's dinner, showers, homework, and exhaustion.  So how do you get out of this rut?  Make the time!

If you have a 1 hour lunch break, use 30 minutes to walk around the block.  You can also do this with 15 minute breaks.  If the weather is not conducive to walking outside, there are other things you can do at work, even during work to burn calories, stimulate circulation, and promote health and quality of life.  Here are some ideas and no I don't have stock in Amazon and do not profit from any of these suggestions!


#2 I AM TOO TIRED AFTER WORK
Buy a stationary bicycle pedaling device that you can keep under your desk at work.  There are some expensive ones that would be a worthwhile investment such as this one but it doesn't have to cost much to be effective, the main thing is that you use it.  I purchased this very inexpensive one for my office and it works just fine!

If you have a break room at work, ask your boss if you can put a small trampoline or other exercise equipment for the staff, maybe s/he will even help to pay for the cost.  Otherwise a small stepper like this one can easily be stored in a closet and be used during a short break.

#3 IT'S INCONVENIENT
What could be more convenient than working out in the comfort of your own home at your own pace, whenever you want to?  Use an exercise app on your smart phone and set reminders so you don't procrastinate or fall off the wagon or find an online (such as YouTube) exercise video channel that you like and set alarms in your phone to remind you to do them.  Here are a few that I like:
Tai Chi
Plyometrics
Fitness with Faith
Yoga and Spirituality
Meditation Music

#4 I AM TOO LAZY
You can make your activities of daily life into a workout without much effort.  If you walk a lot for work such as a nurse, realtor or postman, use 1-2 lbs ankle weights.  It can be hidden underneath your pants so no one knows.  Your leg muscles will feel a big difference.  A little bit goes a long way!

#5 I DON'T HAVE SPACE FOR WORKOUT EQUIPMENT
If you live or work in a high rise building, take the stairs!  Do this on cruises too.  You will burn calories and sometimes get where you are going even faster.

#6 I HATE WORKING OUT!
Join the club!  Don't workout, just be more active.  When shopping, doing errands, going out to eat, to an appointment, or going to work, don't look for the closest parking spot.  Park further away and walk to your destination.  This may entail better time management but walking a few extra blocks every day adds up!

#7 I CANNOT AFFORD A GYM MEMBERSHIP
Then don't join one.  These fast and effective exercises are FREE.  In just 10 minutes per day you can get into good shape with a few super simple exercises!
Try a Circuit such as this one that can get you in great shape over time!
2 min jumping jacks, jump rope* or burpees (warm up) 
1 minute of (jump) squats 
1 minute of (alternating) lunge (jump)  
1 minute of sit-ups (left, right, center)
1 minute of push-ups 
1 minute of plank *
1 minute of pull-ups*
2 minutes of stretching

Imagine if you did this twice per day 
when you woke up and before you went to bed!
How would you look and feel after 1 year!?!

#8 I AM INJURED AND I DON'T WANT TO MAKE IT WORSE
If you have knee (or other joint) problems (or health conditions), you can do the exercises without jumping.  Consult with your doctor and a trainer to find the appropriate workout for you.  For warm up you can jog in place, alternate with high knees, and butt kicks and all the exercises can be modified for low impact to meet your specific needs.

Here is a 3 minute demonstration


If you have carpet or rug then you don't need a yoga mat, otherwise a thick foam exercise mat can be stored in the trunk of your car and be ready for any 10 minute break you have.  Your kids could be playing in the park on a Sunday or after school and you do your routine quickly.

There is minimal to no equipment needed really, your own body weight suffices in plyometric exercises. Plyometrics, also known as jump training or plyos, are exercises in which muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power, speed and strength.

If you have a doorway at work, this device is a gem and can be easily broken down to take along with you when traveling!

#9 I HATE THE GYM
There are numerous physical activities that do not require joining a gym.  If you are a social person, join a sports team!  Your local YMCA, JCC, and other organizations such as recreational parks and recreational centers have all kinds of sports teams you can join: soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, rowing, running clubs (train for a marathon-that's a great goal & accomplishment!), cycling clubs (you can find online or through local sporting goods outfitters) and dance studios--belly dancing is a great core workout and very empowering for women.  There are long bike rides for great causes that are lots of fun to do with friends.  I did a ride from Seattle to Portland (over 200 miles) with a bunch of friends and it was GREAT!!!  You can enter a tennis or racquetball league, solo or doubles (get your family members involved such as spouse or parent or child or sibling).  Having someone to be accountable to is very productive and enjoying a recreational activity with a friend or family member is beneficial for the relationship!  By joining a team you can make like-minded friends and maybe even meet someone special if you are single!

#11 I DON'T LIKE COMPETITION
Physical activity doesn't have to be in the form of the gym or a sport.  You can make it a date night with your spouse, and take dance classes together.  Ballroom dancing or Swing, Latin dancing or other social dances can be both a great cardiovascular workout as well as a ton of fun and a great opportunity to bond with your partner.  A couples' yoga class video or tai qi or chi gong video could also be a fun way to spend quality time together without having to get a babysitter and save the commuting time.  Flexibility is super important as we age to improve balance and prevent hip fractures, etc.

#11 I AM NOT ATHLETIC
You gotta start somewhere!  Martial Arts is an awesome practice that will get you in shape, confident, and sharp.  It can boost your metabolism and your self-esteem.

#12 IT'S JUST NOT FOR ME
Not everything is for everyone.  That's okay!  Join your kids in their fun physical activitiesDon't be a spectator!  When I take my kids to the trampoline park or to the local ninja course, I see so many parents sitting in the side-lines, watching or on their phones.  Being active with your kids is a great way to bond with then, so stop watching and jump in.  You might actually have fun, sweat, and enjoy yourself! It's important to be a good role model!  Children learn by what we do, not what we say!  So play catch with them, rent bikes at the beach, and shoot some hoops together.  Families that play together, stay together!


My step-daughter watching me get air!

#13 I AM NOT MOTIVATED  & #14 I AM AFRAID (I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO)
No one likes to lose money.  Therefore when you sign up with a personal trainer you are more likely to be committed to your exercise program.  Even if it's only once per week and you do 2 other days on your own you will get better results.  Pick a trainer who looks how you want to look.  If your trainer is not in good shape, find someone else to coach you.  Also, if you are concerned about medical conditions and injuries, signing up for a few sessions with a personal trainer can be particularly beneficial.  The trainer can make sure you are doing things properly (with good posture, alignment, and using weights that will build your muscles without injuring you.  There is no need to start on your own if you fear doing things incorrectly and suffering the consequences.  Sports injuries happen, even when you do things correctly so it's also good to make sure your nutrition and supplement intake is adequate to support your lifestyle.  Don't be embarrassed everyone needs to start somewhere.  Just start,

#15 I WORK TOO MANY HOURS
Office modification.  Your desk can be transformed into a workout station.  If you sit for many hours, maybe you can use a yoga ball part of the time to exercise your core muscles such as abdomen and back.  Make sure your table and monitor are ergonomically set up to protect your joints and eyes from excess strain and fatigue.  You might be able to get a transformable standing desk or a wurf board for standing jobs to increase and improve circulation.  Stagnation of blood and vital energy (qi pronounced chee) are the leading contributors to disease according to Chinese Medicine.  There are many creative ways to modify your office that are available to day that help to prevent lack of physical activity (leading to weight gain and poor health).  If you think it's too expensive, it's cheaper than missing 3 weeks from work because of surgery and it's cheaper than chemotherapy co-payments and deductibles.  Your boss would probably prefer to invest in prevention so that his employees are happy, healthy, more productive, in a better mood and miss fewer days due to illness etc. 

#16 NOTHING WORKS FOR ME
Humans enjoy variety, spontaneity and regularity.  Mix and match from the above to find something that works for you.  For example, maybe wear ankle weights twice per week, take the stairs on Fridays, go for a long walk at the park or the beach on Sundays, take a Dance class one evening per week, use your exercise app twice per week to work different muscle groups (upper and lower body workouts), take a fitness class once per week (some clubs open at 5am, you could swim laps too!), get a yoga ball for the office and a gel pad for your keyboard to protect your wrists from carpal tunnel.  Sign up for a few 5K races  per year (you can speed walk it) and try to beat your personal best each time.  There are many little things you can do if you WANT to.  Where there is a will there is a way! So start planning today!

#17 I HAVE FOOT PAIN AND CANNOT STAND
There is a program called sit and be fit that you can do at home or at a local senior center.  You can also swim, row, or use a stationary bicycle.  In addition, you can heal the foot pain with acupuncture.  See this article for more information.

If you are not getting results, get a food app such as this one and log your macros.  When you record your intake you can better track your progress.

#18 I'M TOO OLD

This is an excuse for, I don't want to, I don't believe I can.  One of my Zumba teachers is 74 years old and she is slim, energetic and amazing.  There are many senior who compete in athletic events such as body building and racing and even senior Olympics.  I have seen videos of physically fit elderly dancing, doing gymnastics and many other physical activities and they don't use age as a crutch or excuse for why not to exercise, be fit, and feel great. The woman in this video started Yoga when she was in her 70s and is now teaching it in her 90s.  Age is no excuse!  NOW is always the time to live your best life!



In summary, exercise should not feel like a dreaded chore, find something fun that you enjoy doing and look forward to.  For me, I love to dance so I take Zumba classes several times per week.  The important thing is to do it often!  It is better to exercise 10-20 minutes per day than to just be a weekend warrior.  So, sign up for 5K walk/runs and take those long weekend bike rides but be active all week long too to prevent heart disease, diabetes and more!  So enjoy reducing your stress and living your best life.  It's your life and your choice so choose wisely!

You might not live longer, but you will live BETTER!
Who doesn't want a better quality of life?

So get moving!  You are UNSTOPPABLE!

Flu shot? No thanks, I'll take a ginger shot!

Recently my step-kids came back from private school with the fear-mongering propaganda below:










The papers talk about how the flu is deadly and that vaccination is the "best" way to prevent the flu.  This is utter and complete nonsense.  First of all people do NOT die of the flu virus.  The so-called "flu-associated" deaths are most likely from iatrogenic infections which the person acquires during hospitalization or in immune-compromised or otherwise sick individuals!  

When I was in college and uneducated about the risks of vaccines, I was persuaded to take the flu vaccine.  Much to my dismay, I became sicker than I had ever been in my entire life.  I was bed-ridden for 2 days, miserable, with the flu.  I would never wish that demise on anyone and I never want to experience that again.  I should mention that I was otherwise very healthy and fit.  When I was finally well enough to go back to the school clinic and told them how sick I got from the shot, they denied it was the shot that made me sick.  They claimed that it was a coincidence that I got the flu after getting the shot and that if I had not had the shot I would have been more sick.  Today I know it was all a cover-up.  

Under the section of is the flu vaccine safe, they fail to mention reactions like the one that I had.

Under the benefits of getting a flu vaccine they say that the shot can keep your child from getting sick.  Again they miss the opportunity to disclose that the recipient of the injection can BECOME extremely sick!

The claim that the flu vaccination may make your illness milder if you do get sick is not supported by any scientific data,  In fact, all so-called "studies" that they reference in this literature do not have any sources cited!  Where is it published (in a peer-reviewed journal)?  Who funded the $tudy?  What was the sample size?  What was the nature of the study?  What are the confounding variables?  Show me the evidence.  You can not make such outrageous claims without any evidence to back it up!

Under other ways to protect against the flu they fail to mention nutrition, vitamins, hydration, exercise, rest, and sleep.  

Under medicine to treat the flu, they only mention conventional meds, no natural (herbal or vitamin/mineral) immune supporting antivirals.

They fail to mention the toxic and disgusting ingredients in the flu vaccine which include: mercury, gelatin, formaldehyde, and MSG (mono-sodium glutamate).

I disagree with their recommendation that pregnant women get the shots.  Pregnant and lactating mothers transfer these toxins to their baby!  Mercury and other heavy metals stay in the body forever (unless chelated) and MSG is a neurotoxin.  Heavy metal can deposit in the brain (which is particularly susceptible to heavy metal toxicity).  These are not health conscious recommendations!  The risk of the vaccine is worse than the risk of the flu!

They do give a very important piece of information, "Flu viruses are constantly changing and so flu vaccines are updated often to protect against the flu viruses that research indicates are most likely to cause illness during the upcoming flu season."  This is the most important and true statement in the entire handout.  The viruses are changing and mutating all the time and the vaccines are being updated some of the time.  Also, science does not have a crystal ball to predict which viruses are going to be most active at any point in time.  I do not want anyone playing Russian roulette with my health when the shot contains heavy metals and other chemicals which are not fit for human consumption!


Conventional Iconic Doctor Oz says
NO FLU SHOTS for his wife and children!




Retired Hospital Worker Gives Explosive ‘Flu Shot Speech’ Before CDC Advisory Committee







Another MUST SEE Video in which a Medical Doctor explains how the AMA (American Medical Association) and CDC (Center for Disease Control)* are governed by whoever pays for the research and that their recommendations are biased towards the providers of the funding. The information he provides about cigarettes is the same thing that's going on with vaccines, Big Pharma and the multi-BILLION DOLLAR collaboration that they are in....



*Big Pharma also provide funding for medical schools in the USA which is why nutrition is an elective course and not a required class and they push drugs to keep people dependent on their medicines for life!  It all starts with vaccines, setting children up to be sick adults.

Here is some additional information from my previous posts about the flu:

INFLUENZA

The scare-tactic data of soaring high death rates provided by the CDC in their brochure was from between the years 1918 and 1919. Hello? We have antibiotics since the 1940’s!!! That data is totally and completely IRRELEVANT! Are you kidding me? Using pre-antibiotic information to scare stupid people into taking the vaccine so big pharma and the gov can make more money off of us! Good grief!!!

The CDC has the audacity to state, “Before the vaccine” prior to their ridiculous statistics in order to make it look like the vaccine is what saved the day. NO, it should say before antibiotics, sanitary water, and hygienic living conditions!!!

Granted the flu is a virus, if it is left untreated the weakened immune system is susceptible to a super-imposed bacterial infection, which is what all those millions of people died from! No one EVER died from the FLU!!! See Merck page 1288, “ Although even healthy people demonstrate defects in lung clearance and ventilation for several weeks after acute illness, RECOVERY IS THE RULE in uncomplicated influenza.”

The CDC website says the following about potential adverse effects:
Severe problems:
· Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot.
· In 1976, a certain type of influenza (swine flu) vaccine was associated with Guillain-BarrĂ© Syndrome (GBS) . Since then, flu vaccines have not been clearly linked to G.B.S. However, if there is a risk of G.B.S. from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than 1 or 2 cases per million people vaccinated. This is much lower than the risk of severe influenza, which can be prevented by vaccination.

Treatment: rest, naturopathic or homeopathic remedies, hydration, symptomatic relief to prevent bacterial super-imposition and appropriate antibiotics if super-infection occurs.

Just recently an assemblyman contracted GBS and it was in the news.  Click here for story.

CONCLUSION: The CDC brochure is purposely misleading people into erroneous thinking by deliberately presenting skewed data! This is totally unethical and nothing less than outrageous! No one ever died from the flu. We can successfully treat it with modern medicine!

The book referenced here is called “The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child” by Robert W. Sears, MD, FAAP.  In Dr. Sears pro-vaccine book, he gives me all the reasons and reinforces my decision NOT to vaccinate. 

Flu

Given at 6, 12 months and then once a year. Vax contains mercury, gelatin, formaldehyde, MSG

Possible side effects include: Guillain Barre syndrome, encephalopathy, facial and arm paralysis, visual problems.

Virtually all cases of the flu pass without consequence.  And the disease isn’t usually treated anyway, so why bother with the vax? 

There are less than 60 deaths per year in children up to 14 years old.  Complications of the flu usually occur in the elderly or people with chronic heart, lung, or immune system diseases (p. 121-123).  Children with asthma, diabetes or chronic health diseases are recommended to take the vaccine but otherwise healthy people do not need the shot.

People who SHOULD NOT be given the vax include those with: egg allergy, past history of Guillain Barre syndrome, and children routinely taking aspirin.

Antivirals can make the course of the disease milder.
Dr Sears says, “I feel that the potential severity of the flu for infants and children has been hyped up by the media.  The actual number of fatalities on this age group every year is extremely small.  Combine this with the high rate of side effects and the unusual chemical additives in the shot, and it’s no wonder some parents shy away from making this a routine vaccine for their kids” (p. 134). 

CONCLUSION:  See highlighted paragraph above by Dr Sears from p 134 of his book.  It summarizes my sentiments very nicely!


HIB (the bacterial flu bug)

This vax is typically given at 2, 4, 6, and 15 months, by AAP guidelines. 

According to Dr. Sears, “severe cases of this disease are now extremely rare.”  There are only about “25 cases per year in the United States in kids under five years of age.”  And, “a breastfed baby who does not attend day care is at a particularly low risk of catching this illness” (p. 9).  My guess is that those 25 cases were in children who have weak immune systems, live in unhygienic circumstances and were possibly malnourished or impoverished without access to appropriate medical care.

He says that he hasn’t seen a single case of HIB in 10 years of practice and that since the disease is so rare, HIB isn’t the most critical vaccine (p. 12).

Dr Sears states that in the vaccine trials, “more babies who received the vaccine caught a serious HIB infection than those who didn’t get the vaccine!” (p. 8).

It seems to me that the risks of the side-effects of the vax such as Guillain-Barre syndrome are more common and more threatening than the bug itself. 

According to the CDC, “The risk of Hib vaccine causing serious harm or death is extremely small.”  http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/side-effects.htm#hib


CONCLUSION:  My baby is breastfed and not in day care.  Therefore, she is at low risk for catching HIB, which is anyway a rare bug with rarely grave consequences.  Since the vaccine is known to have caused serious harm or death, why would I want to take that “small” chance???  No thank you!  We’ll stay healthy with breastmilk and naturopathic medicine and if need be, antibiotics!

HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE TYPE B (Hib)

According to the Merck Manual, “Haemophilus species are normally found in the upper respiratory tract and RARELY cause disease! (page 1166).

Antibiotic treatment varies depending on the site of infection.

According to the brochure, this condition was responsible for the death of 600 children a year (before the vaccine). I suspect that those 600 children were immune compromised, malnourished, probably not breastfed, without medical access and/or lived in poverty conditions with poor sanitation and hygiene. I doubt if any of them were the children of naturopathic doctors!

The vaccine contains ammonium-sulfite, and thimerosal.

CONCLUSION: This is a RARE condition, which can be successfully treated with antibiotics. 


The USA should follow Italy and dismantle the corrupt CDC which operates conflicts of interest.
