Chains or Discipline

1006036_207386982718610_639130774_nThere is more than one way to skin a cat, but some ways are better than others. A friend that has been exercising and (inconsistently) and getting the high quality supplements through Advocare sat down with a doctor about weightloss surgery. This person is terrified by the idea of being operated on, informed their father and he cried real man tears, and would have to go into considerable debt to accomplish the procedure. Thereby adding chains of mental anguish, family disapproval, and debt slavery in a situation that discipline would edify mentally, instill family pride in accomplishment, and could benefit financially through inspiration.

Now, just so it is said elective surgery is a personal choice and as long as someone is thoroughly informed on the potential risks, restrictions, and costs-benefits of it, then makes the best decision in the matter, rock on either way. Consider this, that the diet restriction for the procedure is more arduous than the supplement regiment and if the current regiment is difficult imagine what the chains of the alternative are if it can KILL you by not sticking to it. As an adult child a parent can do little, but if a parent does disagree on a long term descision think about what family events will be like with that splinter in the mind, snide comments, passive agressive actions, and general disdain. Financial stress is destroying all that the average person does and adding the chains of another bill, with interest, will only lower the quality of life. Every situation is different since there are people that do not have these particular complications, other procedural options, family support, or financial surplus.

Advocare-24-Day-Challenge-ReviewsDiscipline brings a whole different mindset, one that addes a greater value to life and reverberates in all endeavors from there forward. Sure it is not easy mentally, but it is not difficult at the same time, just a matter of replacing old habits and/or make new one. There is no anxiety in the end and a resilience beaming with confidence in what a person can accomplish. Family and friends see the example, often promote the success and get inspired to follow suit (especially in a health circumstance). When someone can stay out of debt it is always a blessing further that with the opportunity of financial gain it really becomes a no brainer. Through discipline the Better You is edifying, inspiring, and foundationally golden.

Garbage Man Cometh

garbage foodThe foods that are put into our mouths provide the materials that make up the body. So if fatty, over processed, nutrient empty, and carcinogenic concoctions are going in what is that person made of? Whats worse is that people do it on purpose!

To make healthy bodies begins with making healthy choices and the simplest begin with drinking clean pure water (not from the tap), getting healthy foods, eating our veggies, and taking in quality supplements. It really is not complicated. Although, it does require a change in habit and commitment to follow through. All of the accumulated fat and junk has to go in order for the nutritious building blocks to be absorbed into the body. They get their walking papers when you start walking, jogging, running, biking, hiking, exercising, or just getting active. With the greater activity comes faster removal of garbage. advobar meal

Simply doing a little prior planning will help with the day to day grind. Be sure to have some nutritious snack bars instead of going to the closest dive. Packed with vitamins and protein to maintain energy throughout the day. Keep and orange, banana, apple, or fruit of your choice close as a hold over until getting home to the cost effective home cooked healthy meal. With this in mind you avoid the garbage man and shed off everything that was brought before in order to develop the Better You!

Burn Baby Burn

balcaloriesThe engine behind getting healthy is you and then metabolism, which is the burning of the foods ingested and determined by how quickly and efficiently the body can use up the calories. With respect to weight loss it is about burning the accumulated fat reserves then building up the body with nutrients. For developing health, muscle, and overall well being it is about efficiency of breaking down food and assimilating the nutrients.

The calories written on a food label are determined by actually burning the food in a bomb calrimeter that measures the amount of heat to fully consume an item. In the body though hydrochloric acid is made by the stomach to break the food down into its usable ingredients and then move it to the intestines to be absorbed through the intestinal wall and processed to the cells. This is why it is critical that a person stays away from junky food and gets plenty of vitamins and minerals from a nutritious lifestyle. You want to use the best materials to build yourself up right?

The trick is to achieve your goal is to maintain the balance that brings you to  your goal. Get your calories from a nutritious lifestyle and you can eat greater quantities without guilt, actually be less hungry, and receive more energy. The vitamins and minerals that you eat will maximize the efficiency along with probiotics that maximize the nutrient processing.

Health as the Cure

cancer cureRecently there was a story of a young woman who at 22 has been diagnosed with cancer and has begun taking chemotherapy. This a terrifying point in life and there is not anything from someone that has not been through it can really say to relate, so I will not attempt that. What can be done is feed the body what it needs. I am not a doctor and do not make an attempt to diagnose or treat any medical condition. I am a man who has read numerous articles, researched, and just applied logic to the situation.

Cancer needs 3 things low oxygen environment, low pH or acidic environment, and a body deficient in vitamins and minerals. In the standard American high sugar low veggie diet all three of these lead to the epidemic rate of cancer growth and varying types of cancers. People tend to breathe very shallow and when they exercise to the point that they are winded for extended periods of time they oxygenate the body, which kills harmful bacteria and cancer. Bacteria and cancer are not able to survive in oxygen rich environments that people who are on a regular fitness regimen produce. This was discovered and proven by Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Laureate who states that depriving a cell from oxygen for 48 hours leads to it becoming cancerous.

Foods that are ingested into the body determine the environment of it. Particularly acidic foods like citrus fruit are good and actually cleanse, but dairy (eliminate), meat (minimize), bread (minimize), and sugar (virtually eliminate) create a low pH or acidic body. Change what you are eating from the processed and fat foods to home cooked, raw, as organic as possible, and non gmo foods. Take in as many salads, fruits, berries, nuts, and vegetables as you can stand, then have some more.

Nutrient deficiency is the core of many maldadies and to rebuild and strengthen yourself to become the Better You fortify your body with good material. Consider that if you use inferior brick to build a house do you expect it to weather a storm? When you see someone in the grocery store getting a 12 pack of diet soda, bag of chips, and cookies what does their body/house look like? Take the Challenge to better yourself and build your house out of good material. Revitalize yourself with a continued nutritional vitamin and mineral packed lifestyle and fitness regimen.

Green Machine for Health

ChlorophylAt the heart of healthy living is a lifestyle with green vegatables and fruit at the core. In particular it is the chlorophyl in leafy vegatables that provide the color and holds the cleansing aspects for purity and nutritional development. Becoming a vegatarian is not the intent, but decreasing the meat intake will bring an immense balance in body health.

Embarking on a challenge and providing the nutrient base that will allow the body begin to cleanse and to rebuild with the necessary vitamins and minerals, along with consistent intake of green leafy vegatables  will encourage the body to remove what is flowing through your veins while the cleanse is doing its work on the digestive system.

Science has determined that cancer hates oxygen and a fitness regimen increases oxygen intake and blood flow. The chlorophyl from something like a wheat grass shot will provide some more for the cleanup and health benefits and incorprating supplements to round out the nutrition will work for the goal to be the Better You.

Put what is good for you into you!

On a Mission

Pride SurroundedA mission falls apart if dissenters poison its goal, critics force one to shore up the goal and point out discrepancies so this can be tolerated. Surround yourself with wise counsel and motivated people with the intent to march forward to the mission objective.

The support of friends and team members will solidify confidence and focus during the Challenge that you have chosen to accomplish. To permit haters to taint the vision will only bring forth fear and doubt. When you inform others of your mission to wellness see what their reaction is. This becomes an opportunity to expose and eliminate these poisonous people from your life and build your pride to be only those who are there to assist.

Team Breakthrough, Armah Fitness, and A-Team have been there throughout for me and all hope that you have a team as dedicated and knowledgable about fitness and nutrition.

Healthy Throughout Every Part

Blood sample health-unhealthyBeing healthy goes even deeper than the accumulated bulges around the body, deeper than damaged organs like the liver and pancreas down to the blood that courses through our veins. Eating vegatables to provide the necessary nutrients, exercising to burn up calories and detoxify the body, and supplementing to ensure both work at optimal efficiency are the 3 activities that will ensure the best health.

As noted in this blog muscle takes up less space in our bodies than does fat, but fat goes deeper than just what is amassed.

http://bandedcarolinagirl.wordpress.com/2014/04/30/losing-inches-is-losing-weight/

These blood samples are from 2 not obese people, so even if you have a “normal” bmi think deeper. One is from an unhealthy person (left), while the other is from a healthy person (right). Stare at them, which one is coursing through you?

Health comes down to taking in good vegtables, fruits, probiotics, and exercising regularly to sweat out toxins. Challenge yourself to be healthy!

Win Through Success

11206_523390351075905_553768667_nBelieve it or not there are people in your life that get pleasure out of you not achieving your goals. The best way to expose and even remove these people is to achieve your goals.

Jealousy and laziness is the source is this persons discontent. When you show the confidence to take a 24-Day Challenge that they do not have it eats away at their insides. When you show the discipline to get stick your workout plan that they do not have it makes them feel small. You are the textbook definition of inspiration and you do this because you know it will make a better future for you and to show that you can accomplish what you set your mind to.

Controlling the reactions of others is beyond what anyone can do, but to support and inspire those who are tired of what they have, are depressed by their current situation, and those who need to see someone accomplish a goal in order to put their own mind towards it. That is what we all can do and that will overcome enemies and bring forth friends and supporters.

Get out there and create the Better You!

Its All in the Mind

67603_207306629393312_998031897_nAttitude is the heart and sould of everything that is accomplished, in particular a “can do” attitude. Everything originates in the mind and you have the power to control it. If you have a bad attitude it is because you choose to have it.

Change your attitude on your ability to succeed and you will find that you do. Nothing can be accomplished until you believe that it can, that is how you will move forward. People often tell one another an outcome of an idea or task without attempting it or based off their previous unsuccessful experience. This is done so often that before someone else tells us we tell ourselves, creating a lack of confidence and a negative attitude. You can change this and attain your goals!

The prevailing attitude towards health is that it must be arduous and taxing, mainly due to the acquired habits and laziness. You can change habits and you can be proactive. Through positive thinking and attitude we change our mentality. Through taking in healthy food and supplements we change our bodies. Through working for the goal not only can we change our health and fitness, we can change our financial futures. Move your journey forward!
