Well, I’m doing the same. I’ve decided that I’ll post more regularly, darn everything! Yup, even whether it’s merely to say, hey, here’s my next post, I’m going to post more often! Even, if the kwalitty of my writing sufferers. The tips will still come — don’t worry. I’m going to try to make them monthly rather than “quarterly,” as fellow fitness-blogger Lou Schuler recently described my paltry output. But I’m going to do intermediate posts too, for my Mom.

I mean, for all those my fans (the self-deprecation will continue). Just what exactly am I going to speak about? Same stuff, I’m just heading to be a little less precious about it, and I might stray off topic every and then now. Subscribers will continue steadily to receive TIPS in their mailboxes, but not the greater frequent musings posted here.

Aaaanyway — I wanted to kick things off with just a little observation here: keep in mind “intelligent design?” Remember how for approximately 5 minutes this form of thinly-veiled creationism was intimidating to nudge out legit research inside our kids’ classrooms? And I for one was relieved. A couple of years ago, my wife Heidi and I went to a one-girl show called “Mother BURNING” by local designer and NPR commentator Sandra Tsing Loh. The show complete her frantic search for decent schooling for her elementary school aged kids.

  • Focus on eating high-quality foods in properly sized servings
  • 7 thrusters
  • 190 – 181
  • Being postmenopausal and especially having experienced early menopause
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Bruce could knock down an opponent with a punch from only 1-in . away

Anyway, back to I.D. I read this term all the time, and it perplexes me to no final end. Maybe I’m sounding nit picky and pedantic: I’ve done that before. I could stomach that phrasing much easier, because technology is evoked, if only faintly. I’m ready to concede that some of these fitness men know a hell of a lot more about squatting and styling and omega-3 fatty acids than I really do.

If you look at the ingredients label for a processed, packaged food, chances are a hint won’t be experienced by you what a few of the elements are. That’s because many of the ingredients within aren’t actual food… they are artificial chemicals that are added for various purposes. This is a good example of a processed food, an Atkins Advantage bar, which is in fact advertised as low-carb friendly health food. I don’t know very well what this is, but it most definitely isn’t food. Preservatives: Chemicals that prevent the food from rotting.

Colorants: Chemicals that are used to supply the food a specific color. Flavor: Chemicals that provide the food a specific flavor. Texturants: Chemicals that provide a particular texture. Keep in mind that processed food items can contain dozens of additional chemicals that aren’t even shown on the label. For example, “artificial flavor” is a proprietary blend.

Manufacturers don’t have to reveal exactly what it means, which is usually a mixture of chemicals. For this good reason, if you observe “artificial flavor” with an ingredients list, it might imply that there are 10 or more additional chemicals that are blended in to provide a specific flavor. Obviously, many of these chemicals have been tested for security allegedly.

But given that the regulatory regulators still think that sugar and natural vegetable oils are safe, Personally, I take their “stamp of approval” with a grain of sodium. Bottom Line: Most ready-made foods contain artificial chemicals, including flavorings, texturants, colorants, and preservatives. The “hyper-rewarding” nature of processed foods can have serious consequences for some people. Some people can literally become dependent on this stuff and completely lose control over their usage.

Although food cravings is something that most people don’t find out about, Today I am personally convinced that it’s an enormous problem in society. It is the main reason why some people can’t stop eating these foods just, no matter how hard they try. They’ve acquired their brain biochemistry hijacked by the intense dopamine release occurring in the brain when they eat these foods. That is backed by many reports actually. Sugar and highly rewarding junk foods activate the same areas in the brain as drugs of abuse like cocaine. Bottom Line: For many people, junk food can hijack the biochemistry of the brain, leading to downright cravings and lead them to lose control over their consumption.
