This is The Amount of This Food You Should Be Eating

The latest CDC statistics on Cardiovascular disease are rather grim; With an alarming number of approximately 659,000 people dying each year in the US alone, CVD is not to be taken lightly. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death not only in the US, but also worldwide. Previous studies have shown that eating more seafood was associated with a reduction in all causes and CVD-related mortality. Seafood is known to contain the following: heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fats Iron Iodine (during pregnancy) Choline Based on information published by the FDA, Choline, for example, supports the development of the baby’s spinal cord. The iron and zinc found in fish help to support children’s immune systems. Protein, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium are also other sources of nutrients derived from fish. Nonetheless, many people choose to limit their seafood consumption because of fear of mercury exposure from seafood. Most Common Way People Are Exposed to M

A Ketogenic Diet Plan - Read This Before You Start

  Out of curiosity, you may have asked yourself the question, what is the ketogenic diet? Well, the above diet is hailed by some weight watchers as a safe and effective way to lose fat but is considered by many experts as one of the many extremes of dieting that is unsafe to your health. Many professional organizations have argued strongly against certain dietary practices, particularly the extremes of fasting and the low-carbohydrate, high-fat, and high-protein diets. These practices, in particular, are a major concern to those who work in the fields of sports medicine and athletics, where reports consistently document that athletes frequently exhibit bizarre and often pathogenic weight-control behaviors, according to findings. Ketogenic Diets With ketogenic diets, the emphasis is primarily on carbohydrate restriction while generally ignoring the total caloric content of the diet.  Those in favor of these diets believe that the body will use up significant lipids for energy with dieta

Vegetarian Diet for Cats - You Be The Judge!

Vegan Diet Our pets are a part of the family, so when we make adjustments to our diets for the sake of better health or beliefs, we have to do the same for them too. Some vegetarians, for example,  may decide to feed their cats vegetarian diets as opposed to meat, a decision primarily based on ethics or morality. Others do it because they feel that it's a healthier choice overall. In one study, 75% of the owners feeding their cats a vegetarian diet considered the diet beneficial for decreased risk of cancer, healthy coat, longevity, weight control, reduced risk of allergies, etc.  However, the question here is which diet is really healthier for your cats, meat-based or plant-based?  Cat - Obligate Carnivore The domestic cat, Felis cactus, is considered an obligate carnivore. The obligate carnivore's diet comprises exclusively of prey or meat. This evolutionary adaptation to a strict protein diet makes it harder for them to digest a vegetarian diet since their digestive system i

However, unfortunately, aging is a harsh reality of life we all wish we could avoid, especially when all the signs of aging begin to appear.

Mediterranean Diet - Eight Life -Changing Health Benefits

  The primary focus of this post is to highlight eight health benefits of the Mediterranean diet. However, before these benefits are listed, a brief introduction to this diet and the primary reason(s) its adherence was considered a vital preventive and therapeutic tool for cardiodiabesity . * The Mediterranean Diet The Mediterranean Diet (MedDiet) – describing traditional dietary and lifestyle habits in the Mediterranean region, is viewed more of an eating pattern than a strictly regimented diet plan. During the mid-20th century, these countries allegedly experienced low rates of chronic disease and higher than average adult life expectancy even though they had limited access to healthcare. Thus, it was believed that the diet, which consisted chiefly of fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts, whole grains, fish, olive oil, small amounts of dairy, and red wine, offered many benefits to their health. According to the International Diabetes Federation, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascu

Anti-Inflammatory Diet - Insanely Effective

Why An Anti-inflammatory Diet An anti-inflammatory diet is of paramount importance because not only is it officially the Flu season, but the Covid pandemic is also very much alive and fully active.  Despite all of this, unfortunately, a vast majority of the conversations, suggestions, and recommendations currently available as it relates to staying healthy, pretty much have nothing to do with diet.  In my opinion, I think consuming the right diet is critical in keeping the immune system in top shape so that it can aggressively fight back at daily environmental assaults on the body, these seasonal viruses, and more importantly, the Covid virus. Several scientific publications agree that consuming a variety of anti-inflammatory food daily can not only provide the body with antioxidants but can also do the following: Provide(phytochemicals)bioactive plant chemicals in fruits, vegetables, grains, and other plant foods that may provide numerous desirable health benefits.

Do This To Decrease The Loss of Vitamins During Cooking

The body does not manufacture most vitamins.  The only way these vitamins can be obtained is only through a well-balanced diet. However, cooking can destroy some of the vitamins in our foods. Water-soluble vitamins like vitamin C and B vitamins seem to be the most vulnerable to degradation in cooking.  Microwave Or Steam Although cooking helps to break down the thick cell walls of many plants, releasing the nutrients stored in them, which is actually suitable for stews and soups. If you are not cooking soups or stews, to minimize the loss of vitamins during cooking, natural foods should be microwaved or steamed rather than boiled in water that will be eventually thrown out later. Raw Vegetables Versus Cooked Vegetables Many people believe raw vegetables contain more nutrition than cooked vegetables, but not in all cases; it depends on the type of nutrient. For example, when researchers analyzed the plasma of people in one study, they found that those who ate a raw food diet had higher

The Jalapeno Challenge is Real - Here is The Trick To Master it

  Like a circus moving from town to town, the Jalapeno crave is going around. So for all you Jalapeno lovers, I know you wouldn't mind a few tips to help you enjoy or dig into a few more Jalapeno poppers or even some Jalapeno chicken salad without having to suffer the consequences. Suppose you enjoy preparing your Jalapeno treats yourself; in that case, I must warn you, "exercise caution when cutting these "hotties"; because if you don't, your eyes, nose, and skin will have to pay the price.  If you would rather sit somewhere where it's cozy (like a restaurant or a Jalapeno specialty spot and enjoy your "hotties"), then you don't have to worry about feeling the after-cutting burn. You just have to deal with a mouthful of fire. Just make sure you order a carton or glass of milk, yogurt, or some dairy ice cream. Yes, it has to be dairy! The casein found in dairy can help wash the capsaicin away. If somehow you have long opted out of consuming dair
