How to lose weight with raspberries ketones?

Before starting any treatment to lose weight it is essential that we consult with the doctor. Also, we can not forget to follow a healthy diet and exercise.
Raspberries provide two options for weight loss: a healthy diet based on them or taking raspberry ketones pills. Both are effective, although the second option is more efficient than the first. However, combined with a healthy lifestyle that includes exercises, the results may be favorable.
One cup of raspberries has only 64 calories. It contains one-third of the daily fiber requirement for an adult. In addition, it contains 14.7 grams of sodium hydrate and 1.5 grams of protein. In this way, along with its natural sweetness that decreases the percentage of cravings in the day to consume healthier foods that do not contain so many sugars, is a good option to lose weight.

Now, a diet completely based on raspberries would consume 90 tons a day of them. For this reason, a new method to lose weight has been put into practice: raspberry ketones.

Raspberry Ketones
Adinopectin, the hormone produced by raspberry ketones, changes the metabolism of the person and makes them able to burn more fat in a shorter time. Even people who are thinner have higher levels of the hormone compared to those who are overweight. In this way, it regulates fatty acids and glucose, helping to lose weight. Along with this, a normal metabolism can be established, preventing the onset of diseases and disorders such as type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity.

Ketones can work as a supplement and have worked in different places in the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada. “It’s a bottled miracle that allows you to burn fat,” said the famous Dr. Oz, in his television show The show of Dr. Oz.

These consist of organic compounds with the same aroma of raspberry. However, there are some imitations that are not effective. Ketones are healthy and do not cause unfavorable consequences. Now, although studies have been done, some specialists are not completely convinced of the ability of ketones to help in the thinning process.

In this way, “The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases” recommends before consuming any food or ingesting any product to lose weight such as supplements, medication and, in this case, raspberry ketones, consult the doctor . In addition, nutritionists suggest not forgetting to have a completely healthy diet with a lifestyle that includes exercises or some recommended percentage of physical activity.
Benefits of raspberry
Raspberry ketones, like cranberries and strawberries, can reduce the risk of heart attacks, especially in women. On the other hand, if you consume 3 or more servings of raspberries or other berries such as blueberries and strawberries, it also determines up to a third less to suffer the attacks, which is 32% lower than women who consume them infrequently. . This is because they have a large amount of flavonoids that help to dilate the arteries as there is an increase in plaque, among other contributions that favor the cardiovascular system. Similarly, researchers in the United States of the Harvard School of Public Health came to the same conclusion.
The positive results of raspberries are due, in large part, to their content in anthocyanins, including the protection of the tissue that lines the inside of the blood vessels.

Among other benefits are:

Use it for arthritis
Raspberries help against inflammatory conditions. In this way, it is useful against gout and arthritis. Some researchers suggest that the pigments that provide color to the berry produce the numerous anti-inflammatory benefits that the fruit brings. In this way, if you want to obtain this specific result, you should liquefy the raspberries with pure fruit juice. Then, they must be heated to obtain an infusion that can be applied to lean meat or chicken.

Source of antioxidants
Due to the large amount of antioxidants they possess, they can help reduce the risk of cancer by eliminating the free radicals in the body. In addition, it gives the possibility of decreasing aging.

I have been using for 1 month Raspberry ketones to lose weight  and I see amazing results in my body. loosing weight naturally is the best option.

How to get rid of sedentary lifestyle

The comfort offered by modern life makes it easier, but also sedentary. How to avoid a sedentary lifestyle? It is clear that the best way is with the practice of physical activity, but that is not so simple. A question arises: to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, is it necessary to practice some sport? Not necessarily.

Although the practice of a sports discipline is the best way to combat sedentary lifestyle, it is not the only way to achieve it. In our entry today, we will define sedentary lifestyle as a concept that affects modern society, but we will also share some recommendations on how to avoid it, reviewing activities to avoid sedentary lifestyles that are more appropriate and easier to implement.

A sedentary lifestyle is defined as the lack or reduction of physical activity. It is important to bear in mind that, the concept is not necessarily associated with the lack of sports activity.

According to the World Health Organization, when we do not meet a goal of 30 minutes a day of physical activity, we are leading a sedentary life. The worrying thing is that a little more than 60% of the world population is within this range of sedentary lifestyle, which generates a group of people with high exposure to cardiovascular diseases.

Consequences of sedentary life

lake-constance-1937136_960_720
We tend to believe that sedentary life is the origin of obesity. Although in many cases this is the case, and it seems logical that this is the case, the truth is that not all people who lead a sedentary life suffer from obesity.

The sedentary life causes the disuse of the functional systems. The locomotor apparatus and other organs and systems in general, enter a process of regression that leads to atrophy.

In the first instance, this is evidenced in the muscles and bones, which lose flexibility and joint mobility. But functional compromise can affect all the organs of the body, including of course the circulatory system.

High blood pressure, diabetes, anxiety, increased cholesterol, heart attack and of course obesity, are some of the diseases associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Recommendations to avoid it
If you want to avoid the risks of a sedentary life, 30 minutes a day is the minimum recommended time, either continuously or alternately. But, you are wondering, how to avoid a sedentary lifestyle if no sport is practical?

Before continuing with the recommendations to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, I advise you not to reject outright the possibility of starting the practice of some sports discipline. Sport brings many benefits to your physical and mental health. It allows you to socialize and establish better relationships with your family, with your co-workers, with your neighbors, etc.

But the truth is that, if you have a long time of sedentary habits, it is not appropriate for you to go out running the half marathon overnight. It is necessary that you follow a progressive process that takes you, in a first stage, to meet the minimum objective: 30 minutes of physical activity per day.
Whenever we think about how to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, it immediately comes to mind to go for a walk. Of course it is a great recommendation. However, the demands of modern life do not allow it to all people.

If this is your case, take a look at the following tips to avoid a sedentary lifestyle:

Tips
-At home or at work, you must use an elevator, consider using the stairs. The time you use will not be noticeably greater and you will be accumulating minutes of physical activity.
-If you drive to work, look for a place to park, located several blocks from your office. This way you will force yourself to walk to your place of work, and then, back to look for your car.
-Take active pauses seriously during work: set an alarm every hour. Get out of your chair and take a walk around the office or the building. If the walk involves going up and down stairs, the better. Four or five breaks during the day, will easily provide the minimum 30 minutes you need.
-I do not know if you have noticed that, when you receive a call on your mobile, you continue sitting in your chair, but you really stop producing. It is the ideal time to take a walk around the office while you answer the phone.
-If you usually drink coffee, water or other drink throughout the day, use a small glass. This will force you to get up many more times to fill it.
-If you must communicate something to a colleague within the same office, or within the same building, instead of sending a WhatsApp message or an email, go and see it in person.
-At home, there are always jobs that everyone shies away from. Washing the dishes in the kitchen, taking out the trash, taking the dog for a walk, securing doors and windows at night … these are tasks that will help you in your purpose and you will be well with your family.
-All this is very well to “remove the rust” to the machine. But you can not be satisfied with that. In a second stage, it is good to start practicing some exercises to avoid a sedentary lifestyle. It’s not about you joining a gym or enrolling in a sports team. These are just some simple exercises to avoid a sedentary lifestyle and improve the performance of your systems even more.

How to survive Christmas without getting fat

By now, many of us already have a business cocktail, a department meal and a dinner with friends. And that Christmas has not started yet. Ahead, we have two weeks of intense social life and lots of food. Not getting fat seems an impossible mission, and for many it is. According to experts, people normally earn between 2 and 4 kilos during these holidays.

If you also want to avoid this outcome, these are the tips you should take into account.

Do not deprive yourself on the indicated days. “Christmas Eve, Christmas dinner, New Year’s Eve dinner, New Year’s dinner , if there is no pathology, it is totally forbidden to diet”. Those days we must enjoy the delicacies that have historically been cooked in the cuisine of our family, but always in moderation. Even people who follow a diet (of thinning) should not do it on the dates indicated; “There is a psychological part that you have to take care of and it can not be that on Christmas Eve you have a grilled steak”.

Not the fast. “It is counterproductive to compensate the Christmas meal with not having dinner that day or directly to fast the next day or just to drink liquids”. It is always necessary to eat food since fasting could have a rebound effect and cause the alteration of energy and hormonal processes. If you want to compensate these meals, it is recommended to eat fewer calories the rest of the day but never eliminate solid foods: “On Christmas Eve we can eat a salad and two pieces of fruit and at Christmas, have two yogurts and an apple”.

Routine the rest of the week. The days indicated are to enjoy the food and the rest of days to recover the routine. Between event and event, it is advisable to “eat what we usually eat during the week”. That way we will not ingest more calories than normal.

Prohibited leftovers. They are the biggest enemy of the scale during the holidays. it is only finds two possible endings for these foods: “Let the children eat them or freeze them and organize a meal with them for the whole family at the end of the month”. Not following these tips would take us to eat party menu (much more caloric) during all the holidays. Also the Christmas leftovers are tempting between food and food.

Keep the sweets in a closed place. They are not forbidden but you have to think that they are the dessert of the parties, that is why “we only have to take them out on the indicated days or if we have a visit”. The rest of the week sweets must be under lock and key. If we have them in sight, it is easy to fall into the temptation to bite at any time.

Fruit, vegetables and whole products. “It is highly recommended to increase your consumption during these dates and even incorporate it in the dinners and festive meals”. Vegetables barely contribute calories while in turn produce satiety during and after meals. In addition, being rich in vegetable fiber are absorbed more slowly so that hunger takes time to appear.

Drink a lot of water. Because if you drink water there will be other caloric fluids that you stop drinking. These would be sugary sodas or alcoholic beverages such as wine and beer. In addition, water provides a feeling of fullness and contributes to less hunger. For this it is advisable to drink two glasses just before starting a main meal.

Walk. If you play sports normally, chances are you will not leave at parties. But if your life is more sedentary you should leave this routine aside at least during these two weeks. It is best to go for a walk every day for at least 35 minutes. As incredible as it may seem, walking at a speed near 7.5 kilometers per hour burns more calories than running at 10 kilometers per hour. The reason is that when walking, more muscles are involved.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Childhood Obesity

Unfortunately there is no magic pill or spell to curing obesity but the good news is that we do have the tools to take a small but important step by getting rid of our judgement and bias towards children with obesity.

Dr Anita Vreugdenhil, Paediatric Gastroenterologist at Maastricht University Medical Centre, is the founder of the Maastricht programme COACH which encompasses an ‘all-inclusive’ approach to improve the lifestyle of overweight and obese children in the South of the Netherlands. Overweight, a condition in which a person’s weight is 10%-20% higher than what is considered as “normal”, and obesity, when a person’s weight is more than 20% higher than normal, are rapidly becoming a national health threat in the Netherlands, especially among children. The latest figures indicate that 500.000 children in the Netherlands are overweight or obese. But many parents don’t realise that their child is overweight and are not aware of the severe consequences. Even when they become aware of the problem, they still don’t know how to correct and change their ingrained behaviour. That’s where Anita and her team can help.

5 vital reasons to become a vegetarian


In the vegetarian diet is excluded, as the name says, any product of animal origin and that implies his death. Instead we can eat milk and dairy products, eggs and honey. They are products of animal origin but they have not meant their death to obtain them.

Of course, the vegetarian person does not just stay in that aspect. It will also seek, as far as possible, that these foods are produced in a respectful way (for example, eggs of free chickens and that they eat healthy food) with them and with the environment. That the vegetables are organic and, if possible, of small farmers in nearby areas will be another priority.

Within the vegetarian “family” we will find people who do not take eggs or milk or honey. They are Vegans and do not take anything that comes directly or indirectly from any animal.

Reasons to be a vegetarian

1- Less chronic diseases

Vegetarian diet is lower in fat and also more polyunsaturated. That implies less cholesterol and less hypertension. To eat more vegetables and fruits can help to avoid some types of cancer since it is a diet more antioxidant and that favors the elimination of toxins. When we learn to eat better we hardly need medication, aspirins, antacids and other “everyday” medicines tend to disappear from our daily lives.

2-Less malnutrition and constipation

It is very curious that except Vegans (who must supplement their diet with B12) a balanced vegetarian diet is usually richer in nutrients than normal (we all tend to always eat the same and basically refined foods).
Greater knowledge about nutrition. Vegetarians usually care a lot about food and take care that nothing is missing. They usually take supplements of algae, pollen, royal jelly, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, flax seed, sesame, etc. The fact of eating more vegetables, more fruit, less meat and more whole foods is a key aspect.


3- Vegetarian diet is Cheaper and improve life quality

 Basing your diet on vegetables, legumes, fruits and vegetable proteins is cheaper than eating meat, prepared foods, cola type drinks, pizzas, snacks, etc. Vegetarians can say that, in general, they are very involved in improving their quality of life and try to find ways to reduce their stress, improve their diet, enjoy nature more, etc.


4- Avoid animal suffering.

Behind this way of eating there is a whole philosophy of life. The planet is understood as the home of all living beings. Avoiding, if possible, your suffering is very important. We can feed on them without killing them (dairy, eggs, honey, etc.).


5-Environmental sustainability

With the food that an animal needs (or the necessary land to raise its food) we can feed 10 times more people. Every year more forests and part of the forest disappear so that animals can graze. In addition, its intensive breeding generates highly polluting residues and methane.

Conclusion
With this article we only want to show that the reasons for being a vegetarian are not only to follow a nutritional fashion but the benefits are many and diverse. Of course there are many people who are not vegetarian and that their diet is balanced and healthy, and that they seek to improve their quality of life.

7 Amazing benefits of chlorella

Chlorella, a freshwater unicellular green algae, is one of the most researched algae in the world. They often refer to it as the almost perfect food, since research that has been done over the years has identified that it has a great number of amazing health benefits. However, it is well known for its ability to detoxify your body, binding toxins and expelling them from your system.

Impressive Range of Benefits for the Health of Chlorella
As you will see, chlorella seems to fill the description of a “nutrient wonder” because it plays much more than a single function. Here are some examples of the health benefits associated with this green algae:

It repairs the nervous tissues

Increase the energy level

Strengthens the immune system

Normalizes blood sugar

Improve your digestion

Normalizes blood pressure

Promotes pH levels in the intestine, which in turn helps the “good” bacteria grow

Remove potentially toxic metals from the body

Improves the ability to focus and attention

Eliminates bad breath

Chlorella can also be beneficial for vegetarians and vegans seeking protein and vitamin B from a source other than animal. About 60 percent of the algae is protein and because it contains all the essential amino acids your body needs, it is considered a “complete protein.”

Chlorella is rich in:

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)
Folate
B12 vitamin
Iron
7 Diseases That Chlorella Could Help Prevent or Treat
As I mentioned earlier, chlorella is and has been investigated for a series of benefits to treat diseases. Here is a list of six problems and diseases in which chorella could be particularly beneficial.

Insulin resistance – Earlier this year, researchers discovered that chlorella has the ability to improve insulin sensitivity

As I have said on numerous occasions, excessive consumption of fructose is the number one cause of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. In this study in animals, the rats, after being fed with food rich in fructose for four weeks, they were given chlorella three times a day for five days, as a result their elevated glucose-insulin values ​​dropped and normalized.

The authors concluded that: “The oral administration of chlorella has the ability to improve insulin sensitivity, and this can be used as an adjuvant therapy for patients with insulin resistance.”
Detoxification It is particularly useful when used together with an infrared sauna and is taken 2 hours before entering the sauna. This way the chlorella will be in your gut ready to join the toxins that are released when you are in the sauna. It will bind irreversibly to the toxins and eliminate them safely when you have your bowel movement.
Diabetes – Additional evidence supporting the theory that chlorella can improve insulin sensitivity can be found in the previous study. Here, it was discovered that algae improves insulin sensitivity and glucose uptake in the liver of rats with type 1 diabetes. The authors suggest that chlorella hypoglycemic effects could be due to the absorption of glucose in the liver and in the soleus muscles.

Another mechanism could be related to the decrease in levels of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), since insulin sensitivity is often inhibited by high non-esterified fatty acids in type 1 diabetes.
Hypertension – The results of a double-blind placebo-controlled study published two years ago suggest that chlorella could significantly lower high blood pressure as well as borderline hypertension. The authors proposed that this could be a beneficial food supplement to prevent hypertension, without apparent adverse side effects.
Anemia, proteinuria and edema in pregnant women – Hypertension and anemia are common during pregnancy and are also potentially dangerous. One of the main causes of these diseases is the nutritional status of women. A study published last year found that chlorella could help improve both diseases in pregnant women, this is probably because chlorella has high levels of folate, vitamin B12 and iron.

The participants took six grams of chlorella a day, starting around week 12 or 18 of pregnancy, until the day of delivery. The group that used chlorella had significantly lower rates of anemia compared to the control group. There were also fewer cases of proteinuria and edema; two symptoms related to hypertension induced by pregnancy.

Also in this case, the authors concluded that: “The chlorella supplement could serve as a natural source of folate, vitamin B12 and iron for pregnant women.”
Fibromyalgia – Although the individual results were varied, it might be worth considering the use of chlorella if you suffer from fibromyalgia. A study published in 2002, tested the effectiveness of two commercial products available based on chlorella in patients who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia and the overall results showed a decrease of 22 percent in the intensity of pain.

However, while seven of the patients reported an improvement in the symptoms of fibromyalgia, six others did not report an effect at all and five more claimed that their symptoms had worsened during the test … So keep this in mind if you decide try it While it may help some, for others it may not work at all.

Liver Cancer – A study published in 2009 found that chlorella triggers cell death (apoptosis) in cancer cells in the liver of rats, suggesting that it could be useful in preventing liver cancer. The authors concluded that: “Our study shows that chlorella definitely has chemopreventive effects by inducing apoptosis by decreasing Bcl-2 expression and increasing caspase-8 in rats with induced hepatocarcinogenesis.”
For more information about the results of the studies, visit the page of Green Med Info that talks about Chlorella and in which they list more than 40 diseases that could obtain some type of benefit from this algae.

Chlorella – A Powerful Detoxification Agent
The toxicity of heavy metals, like chemical toxicity, have become one of the most worrisome health damages of our days and this is where chlorella can be extremely useful. Its ability to bind to heavy metal toxins, allowing them to be safely eliminated from the body, has been well established. It is particularly important for the elimination of systemic mercury, since most of the mercury is eliminated through faeces.

Once the load of mercury falls from the intestines, the mercury from other tissues of the body can move to the intestine more easily, then the chlorella will take care of removing it from there.

You can also add coriander, since it works as a synergistic detoxification aid along with chlorella. This combination is particularly useful when you consume seafood, since most of them are contaminated with heavy metals and chemicals. Ideally, you should take it with food so that chlorella can bind directly to the toxins while they are in the intestine, before your body absorbs them.

In order to optimize the detoxification of heavy metals, you will want to take at least four grams of chlorella a day, last a whole year.

Keep in mind that side effects may occur. As your body begins to detoxify, you may begin to experience mild nausea and / or mild diarrhea. If these symptoms become very annoying, what you should do is reduce the initial dose and increase it little by little. As soon as your body cleanses of toxins, these side effects should disappear.

Alkaline diet Benefits

To lead a healthy life it is necessary that the pH of our body is regulated, without becoming too acidic, rather it must be inclined towards the alkaline side.
The key to the pH or alkaline diet is to increase the amount of food or alkaline products and reduce the consumption of acidic foods or products. Thus, it consists of reducing processed foods, animal proteins, sugar and caffeine to the maximum, in order to eliminate acidic toxins and increase the consumption of natural foods rich in alkaline minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium and The calcium.
Blood fulfills two important functions: it carries nutrients and oxygen and removes the toxic residues of metabolism, which are acidic in nature and must be evacuated through the liver, kidneys, lungs or skin. To perform these functions, the blood pH must lean a little towards the alkaline side of the spectrum.

Therefore, blood is, under normal circumstances, slightly alkaline, with a pH that varies between 7.35 and 7.45. In this sense, the balance of the pH in the body is the first line of defense and the best resistance against diseases. This is because the causative elements of various diseases can not survive in an alkaline state, but are strengthened in acidic environments.

The characteristic foods of the alkaline diet

dieta-acido-alcalina
Hydrating well is one of the keys. The pancreas uses water to alkalize the food that leaves the stomach and enters the intestines. On the other hand, the brain needs water to carry out the chemical reactions that direct the body. Thus, drinking water in correct amounts is the most important part of the pH diet.

Alkaline foods are found mainly in fruits, vegetables – green vegetables, especially – whole grains, spices, probiotic crops – such as yogurt – and honey, while acid products are meats, cheeses, cereals and alcohol.
In a more extended list of alkalizing foods, we can find:

Avocado
Parsley
Fruits not too ripe
Potatoes
Nuts
Mineral water
Almond milk
We recommend you read:
Fermented foods in the diet: why include them?

On the other hand, this is a list of some commonly consumed acidifying foods:

Vinegar
Fruit juice
Tomato
Vegetables
Refined cereals
Sugar
Meats and organ meats
Seafood
Fish
Eggs
Cured cheese
Yogurt or curd
Coffee
Tea
Cocoa
The Alkaline diet is indicated for those who want to fight obesity, but also for those who want to improve their health, prevent inflammatory problems and eliminate toxins from the body.

The perfect complement to the alkaline diet

hombre-nadando
Food is not everything in the pH diet. The most advisable thing is to practice exercise and that each person looks for the one that adapts to his physical constitution, his age or his state. Of course, aerobic exercise, being able to increase the use and flow of oxygen in the body, is the perfect complement for this type of diet.

The problems of an excess of acidic foods
Excessive consumption of acidic foods generates, in the short term, decay and inflammation of the gums due to inhibition of the salivary glands, but in the medium term decreases the secretion of hydrochloric acid by the stomach.

In the long term, there is a rebound effect of stimulation of the glands, which secrete more acid, causing chronic acidity and increasing the risk of gastritis or ulcer.

It is very important that you do not abuse the antacids to fight stomach acidity because they further destabilize the acid-base balance. Although strong acids cause the symptoms described, small stimuli or weak organic acids balance your pH, so one of the pillars of a consistent diet is to drink a glass of water with a few drops of lemon at breakfast.

In short, a diet that allows us to obtain some control over the pH of our body, tilting the balance towards the alkaline side, can provide us with several benefits and avoid the problems derived from an excessive consumption of acidic products.
