Fat is Not Bad & Evil it Just Has to be The Right Fat!

Good Morning,
Take it from me and I blame my mom....We grew up with a mom always on a diet.  We had no junk food in the house and to this day I hate raisins because I had one of those tiny boxes in my lunch for as many years as my mom made my lunch.  I don't remember my mom being overweight but then saw some pictures from where we were real young and yes she was a bit larger back then.  But the mom I think of most of the time is a mom about a size 12-14 and she was very pretty. (oh gosh here I go rambling again....)

Anyway back to Fat...low fat, non-fat forever and ever that I even did it and have become like her as in diet, diet diet, but not anymore.  All that low fat non fat stuff was/is loaded with artificial fake garbage!!!  Don't do it!!!

You can eat bacon and lose weight (not everyday not the entire package....)!!!

Here is some additional info on that not so evil fat you have been afraid of, like I was!

Why Saturated Fat Doesn't Cause Heart Disease

In a 2010 evaluation of 21 studies and 350,000 subjects, saturated fat was not associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease — and numerous other studies have reached similar conclusions        . Of course, these studies aren’t without controversy. For instance, Greatist expert and physician Dr. James Hardeman believes those 21 studies aren’t comprehensive enough; on average, their subjects were studied for around 14 years, which may not be long enough to see the effects of a diet high in saturated fat. However, they raise important questions about saturated fat’s effects on the arteries of the heart and brain.

But what about cholesterol? We actually have two kinds of cholesterol in our blood: the HDL (“good”) and LDL (“bad”). Total cholesterol levels are less important than the ratio of HDL to LDL, but a simpler (if kind of flawed) approach is that we should try to increase HDL and decrease LDL. Saturated fat is generally believed to increase the bad cholesterol.

But that’s only part of the story, because there are also two kinds of LDL cholesterol: big, floaty particles (type A) and small, dense ones (type B). When someone reduces their consumption of saturated fat and their LDL cholesterol “drops,” they’re only lowering their type A particles. But it’s the type B particles that are more closely linked in heart disease, and they’re generally controlled by carbohydrate consumption  . So the best way to cut out harmful types of cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease could be to follow a diet that’s low in carbs, rather than fat.

Why Saturated Fat Can Be Good For You

Saturated fat has been shown to have loads of positive effects on the body, including:

Liver Health: Saturated fat encourages the liver cells to dump their fat cells, which helps the liver to function more effectively   .
Immunity: Saturated fatty acids, especially the kinds found in butter and coconut, help white blood cells to recognize and destroy invading viruses and bacteria. Go get ‘em, boys!

Hormones: Eating saturated fat tends to increase free testosterone levels, which helps to repair tissue, preserve muscle, and improve sexual function   .

Now, fat is high in calories, so it can promote weight gain in that respect. Per gram, it has more than twice the calories of protein or carbohydrates. But provided an eye is kept on portion size, saturated fat in and of itself doesn’t have any negative impact on the body. In fact, increasing fat intake might help with weight loss: One study found that when three groups of obese people were fed diets of 90 percent fat, 90 percent protein, and 90 percent carbohydrates, respectively, the high-fat group lost the most weight  . Plus, it tastes freaking delicious.


This doesn’t mean every source of saturated fat is healthy. Case in point: A study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that after analyzing the diets of 1.2 million people, there was no association between eating red meat and heart disease — but there was for those who ate a lot of processed meat  . That is to say, if we’re going to get sick from eating meat or saturated fat, it’ll be by getting it from a crappy source.

Basically, we should spend a little more on food. The body loves saturated fat, but from sources like grass-fed meat and butter, whole eggs, and coconut fat — not hot dogs and pepperoni pizza (sorry). By a mile, the biggest enemy in our food is likely refined sugar  . Even the American Heart Association, which is still anti-saturated fat, agrees that sugar is a far bigger contributor to heart disease.

But the tide is very slowly starting to turn. Prominent journals and scientists are beginning to speak out on saturated fat’s benefits, and, after government scientists reviewed 16,000 studies on diet and obesity, Sweden recently became the first Western country to advocate a high-fat diet to its citizens.

That’s because heart disease and obesity are caused by inactivity, trans fats, refined carbs, and overeating, to name a few — but not saturated fat. Toss the margarine and tuck into some buttered vegetables or a seared steak. We think you deserve it.

I have gotten on the coconut oil train myself and its a good train and you can even find unflavored if you do not like the taste of it.  I even have coconut vinegar and its awesome.  I also have found avocado oil but you do not cook with it, you use it more to make dressings etc and it is amazing!!  

My biggest downfall is probably that I love mayonnaise like a crazy women (Hellman's, Duke--shut up!!) but I found Avocado Mayonnaise and though its not what I am used to I like to better than other faux mayo's I have tried.

If I can do this you can do this!!!!!!!!!  I may have jumped past the 50 year mark but as they say better late then never.  I still do a one night a week "cheat" dinner and I still have a vodka here and there because I can.  =)

I am once again going to leave you with a few products that I use and enjoy.

Have a Great Weekend!!!

To Probiotic or Not to Probiotic?

Good Morning!!

I have been gone again for months and do apologize and I am going to be more diligent in posting more frequently on things that are effecting my live for good and bad hoping I can help others.

So you hear about Probiotics more and more these days its every where!  I did not pay much attention really for a long time I took a "green" supplement that had them in it but really wasn't particularly phased buy it because of my chronic tummy issue (yes that darn c word again constipation).  When I took this supplement I did feel better and perhaps there was an improvement and actually thinking of adding it back to my diet.  (I have tried every "green" out there and my first choice and still go to is Green Vibrance it is amazing, I add it to my "smoothie" which my husband calls my grass clippings.

You can find it here:

Anyway I digress....back to probiotics after tons of research for my various "issues"  I learned there are certain ones that are better then others..they are NOT all the same.  Also incorporating probiotic foods is another very helpful tip that I would have never thought of and I am so glad I gave it a shot!

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.

Probiotics are naturally found in your body. You can also find them in some foods and supplements.

It's only been since about the mid-1990s that people have wanted to know more about probiotics and their health benefits. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems. And because of their newfound fame, you can find them in everything from yogurt to chocolate.

How Do They Work?

Researchers are trying to figure out exactly how probiotics work. Here are some of the ways they may keep you healthy:

When you lose "good" bacteria in your body (like after you take antibiotics, for example), probiotics can help replace them.

They can help balance your "good" and "bad" bacteria to keep your body working like it should.

Most Common Probiotics

Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are the most common probiotic bacteria. The Lactobacillus genus has 18 different bacteria strains, while the Bifidobacterium genus consists of eight strains. Lactobacilli inhabit your small intestine, and Bifidobacteria live in your colon. These friendly bacteria, also known as cultures, help the bacteria that already live in your intestines to break down food for healthy digestion. Probiotics may also strengthen your immune system.

Probiotic Foods

Yogurt contains probiotics. Check the yogurt labels when you are selecting the yogurt brand. Some yogurt manufacturers add extra live bacteria cultures to the yogurt, as well as fructose or artificial flavorings. Yogurt made from goat’s milk has more friendly bacteria than yogurts made from cow’s milk. Kefir is a probiotic drink made from goat, cow, sheep, soy, rice or coconut milk. Like yogurt, kefir is available in many flavors. Less well-known probiotic foods are sauerkraut, pickles, dark chocolate, kombucha tea and tempeh.

Just know it is not EVERY yogurt or every sauerkraut etc.  Yogurt needs to have live active cultures and the sauerkraut etc are nonpasturized.  I will share what I use below.

With these additions my chronic c word is now almost non-existent when it does reappear I know I haven't been doing what I need to do.

What I have tried and it has worked for me:

More to come!!
Have a beautiful healthy happy day!!!

I fell off my healthy train for awhile but now have jumped back on.  It's been a month back and I am feeling fantastic (except for the annoying vertigo attacks) and down 8 lbs.  So Yea!!!

A few simple changes in what you eat and how can really be amazing!!!

One of the best things I have implemented this time around is this.....I do this every morning as soon as I get up.   It was hard to get used to but take it from me the queen of constipation and other horrible issues this has been a godsend!!

That's it for now just wanted you all to know I am alive just busyyyyyyyyyyyy...................

Cancer & Brown Seaweed

Brown Seaweed Causes Cancer Cells to Self-destruct

Did You Know…that an extract from brown seaweed causes cancer cells to self-destruct … detoxifies the body of chemical build-up … and also burns body fat?
Brown SeaweedThe medicinal powers of seaweeds have been used for centuries because of their proven ability to prolong life and enhance health and beauty.  Over the last decade, continuing worldwide research has shown brown seaweed to be the most beneficial of all seaweeds.
Brown seaweed (Laminaria japonica, or kombu) is rich in organic iodine, fucoidan, alginates, fucoxanthin, laminarin, and other mineral values.  It also contains all of the 72 different trace minerals, which are often lacking in people living in the Western hemisphere, particularly the U.S.  Here’s a breakdown of brown seaweed’s stellar health properties:

==>  Fucoidan - Approximately 4% of the total dry weight of brown seaweed consists of fucoidan.  Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide, also referred to as an “evaporated oligomineral.”  It is the fucoidan content in brown seaweed that causes cancer cells to self-destruct, according to the Biomedical Research Laboratories of Takara Shuzo and the Research Institute for Glycotechnology Advancement.This phenomenon of cancer cell “self-destruction” is known as apoptosis, which is caused by a mechanism that is programmed into the nature of the cells themselves.  When the apoptosis mechanism is triggered within a cell, the cell’s DNA or genetic blueprint is rendered useless, and therefore destroyed.  Apoptosis has been referred as the natural process through which living organisms expel harmful cells.The health benefits of fucoidan have been published in more than 600 scientific articles in The National Library of Medicine.  The research shows that fucoidan’s therapeutic properties include immune system enhancement, relief of digestive/intestinal disorders, allergy control, improvement of liver functions, powerful anti-oxidant action, cholesterol and blood pressure regulation, blood sugar stabilization and the promotion of healthy skin and hair.
==>  Fucoxanthin - It is the fucoxanthin in brown seaweed that is credited with efficient fat-burning.  However, fucoxanthin does not accomplish this by itself.  Therefore, taking fucoxanthin supplements will not do the trick.  Rather, fucoxanthin works in combination with the mineral iodine that’s also present in brown seaweed.  When the thyroid is supplied with a sufficient amount of iodine, the endocrine system is rehabilitated and functions more efficiently — and this increases your body’s metabolic speed, thereby enabling your body toburn calories faster and prevent the accumulation of body fat.
==> Alginates - Alginic acid, also called algin or alginate, is an anionic polysaccharide that exists in the cell walls of brown algae.  The alginate content of brown seaweed detoxifies the body of strontium, uranium, mercury, lead — and hundreds of toxic chemicals that we’re exposed to in modern society.  Such toxins, which become embedded in the heart, kidneys, liver, brain and other organs, are effectively eliminated from the body by sea vegetables, particularly brown seaweed.
==> Organic Iodine - Most people think iodine is only beneficial for the thyroid, but it’s actually important for other organs of the body as well, including breast and prostate gland tissue.  It is believed that the rates of breast cancer in Japan are significantly lower than they are in the Western world because the Japanese consume higher quantities of seaweed.  A sufficient level of iodine reactivates the thyroid, and consequently regulates other glands and organs, including the pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys, adrenals, and even the liver.
==> Laminarin - The laminarin content of brown seaweed is a great natural source of energy.

Because of the publicity that brown seaweed has received in recent years, including a feature article in Time Magazine, it’s not surprising that most people are heading to the nearest health food store and buying brown seaweed.

Drink your Greens with Our Daily Dose - Organic Super Greens which contains the powerful seaweed Fucoidan Plus 100% of the RDA of Iodine your body needs!

Lower Your Your Bad Cholesterol with Krill Oil

Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans that occupy a relatively low position on the food chain, feeding on plankton and ice algae. 

Antarctic krill is rich in the antioxidant astaxanthin, which gives the oil its characteristic red color.  Astaxanthin is a natural carotenoid-type of antioxidant that is even more powerful than beta-carotene, alpha-tocopherol, lycopene and lutein.  Astaxanthin naturally quenches free radicals, keeping the product fresh. Thus, no additives are necessary to maintain krill's long-term stability.  By comparison, antioxidants are added to most dietary supplement fish oils to prevent them from going rancid during production or on the shelf.

Some benefits of krill oil with Astaxanthin include:

- 500 Times Stronger than Vitamin E & 5X Better than Fish Oil
- Protection for the brain, eyes and central nervous system.  Natural mood support.
- Important for memory, concentration and learning.
- A natural anti-inflammatory that benefits joints
- Anti-oxidant protection against sunburn.  - Anti-aging properties & Immune system support. 
- Promotes heart health.  Helps lower 'bad'cholesterol.
- May protect against Stomach Ulcers, Chronic Gastritis, and Stomach Cancer because it fights bacteria in the gut that cause these problems through its potent carotenoid content.
- Beneficial for dry skin. 

Our krill oil is derived from the most sustainable source on the market.  Krill are the largest biomass on earth.  Yearly harvests are a mere few percent per year, meaning that production can continue sustainably for centuries.  The harvesting of krill for the Regeneration USA label is regulated by various organizations, such as World Wildlife Fund Norway.  In addition, eco-harvesting effectively prevents the accidental bi-catch of birds, fish and other marine mammals.  Krill harvested via traditional methods undergoes rapid decomposition

Regeneration USA's Deep Ocean Krill Oil is harvested from THE WORLD'S CLEANEST & PUREST WATERS.  Our krill oil is independently tested to ensure it's free from harmful contaminants. 
Regeneration USA's krill oil contains naturally occurring long-chain omega 3 fatty acids; EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).  These phospholipids are superior to the triglycerides found in fish oils, being easily absorbed.  This reduces the fermentation and burping problems commonly associated with fish oil supplementation.
