Breaking Down the Breakdown

breaking down the breakdownThe reason that we eat is to gather the proteins and nutrients to build and rebuild the body as well as provide energy to do the day to day activities of our little corners of the world. This heavy lifting is done by the digestive system in particular the small and large intestines, collectively “the gut”.

Inside our guts there are about 5 lbs of flora or microbiota that aid and conduct the breakdown of food after being chewed in the mouth and dissolved in the stomach. There are about 5 TRILLION different bacteria and microorganisms that do this for us, in a mostly symbiotic or pathgenic capacity, although there is an imbalance when there is a high sugar intake. Due to junk/fast/fat food lifestyle, poor farming habits, and aging, this environment and its efficiency declines, resulting in lowered nutrient absorbtion and indigestion. The impact on overall health is that without the necessary nutrient production organ function diminishes, breaking down the system bringing dis-ease and dis-order.

Auto-immune disorders have a specific connection with this since 80% of our immune system is in the gut. Some venture to say that break down is a connected to the pesticides used on food blocking key enzymes or the genetic modification of plants and have gone so far as to bring legal action, which is being overlooked in reporting circles.

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!

Ebola Fruit Loops

ebola hysteriaThe world is quickly becoming awash with Ebola hysteria, but people need some perspective. Ebola has been given credit for some 4,000 deaths according to the World Health Organization. Consider though how many people die of obesity, tobacco, and alcohol related issues. People are quickly washing everything, changing travel arrangements, and thinking twice about even shaking hands, but what changes are people willing to do for their health?

Health is something that we all have control over and further to that to keeping it in peak performance will ward off most illnesses, infections, and viruses. Take into account that 80% of the body’s immune system is in the digestive system, so being sure to get fruits and vegatables will provide the best defense. Along with probiotics that will replenish the good flora for best digestion, nutrient absorbtion, and weight balance.

You do not have to eat up bowl of fruit loops hysteria and craziness, just be the Better You and focus on your health as the best defense, help others do the same, and get your supplements. These will keep away far more dangerous health maladies and be an example of discipline and inspiration to calm down those around you.

Coming Up Short

open-uri20121222-17485-9jvq36What we eat is what provides the fuel for our bodies along with the materials that will be used to build it up. The question is how does the food you eat make you feel? You feel sluggish? You feel fatigued? You feel bloated? You feel heavy? You feel fat? When the body does not get the vitamins and minerals it needs then these feelings come. Fact of the matter is that without nutrients the body is not satiated and does not replenish itself appropriately. Even when a person is eating a balanced meal the food itself is not nutrient dense, meaning that you would have to eat an exorbant amount of it and it still would not have enough of what is needed for optimum performance and growth. That is why supplements are so necessary in todays modern diet to not come up short.

In the modern factory farm system the soil does not replensish its nutrients so fertilizers are used and these ferilizers do not have the full spectrum of nutrients that would be provided through the natural growth and decay process. Yielding crops that may be more numerous and bigger, but not rich in what the body needs for health. When the needs are not met you stay hungry, which can in turn increase fat storage, create health issues, sickness, and imbalance. To overcome this an intense fitness regimen is key along with a healthy lifestyle that includes a supplement regimen that incorporates the lack of vitamins and minerals.

Achieving intake of vitamins and minerals allows the body to balance out, giving more energy to perform throughout the day. It permits top performance of the body that sheds unnecessary pounds to bring forth the Better You, who is vibrant and can take on the world. The amount of fitness that is done determines the speed of the accomplishment and is what builds up the discipline to stay healthy and become the vision that you want to put forth.

Well Built or Well Greased

funny-pic-inside-human-body-foodWhich describes you? Eating nutritious foods, working out, and taking supplements will work wonders in creating the chiseled, well defined, and well built you. Eating fat food, sitting on your rump, and being on the computer all day will create the typical picture of an American, well greased.

From this point forward accept the challenge to build the Better You! Through identifiying the root causes of setbacks a foundation can be made and construction begin. First, how do you feel about your energy level? mental attitude? self-image? What fear has held up the progress? The mind must determine what needs to be accomplished and what the desired finished product is to visualize how to get to the end result.

Now, it is about action! Constantly tell the little negative voice STFU! You have decided to be the Better You and that is what is going to happen. People know the foods to avoid and the little actions that will bring them closer to the goal, just do them. There are no ribbons for good effort and there is change only through completion. Plan your work and work your plan!

Its not the enemy that you must fight, its the inner me that you must build.

Brain Numero Duex

19256DD1-B797-4A8D-A7F2B1A191AAA8C7_articleMost people think that the mass of cells in their head controls the entire body. In reality the “gut” is a decision making center packed with nuerons that is virtually aurtonomous . Based on the food available the gut  informs the brain of hormones, proteins, hunger, and mood.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/gut-second-brain/

Digestion and supplement intake is critical to maintain a strong immune system, battle cancer (I’m no doctor, but no doctor will tell not to be healthy), have mental focus, and positive attitude to deflect the haters. To maximize the performance continually drink clean pure water, 30% of water intake is used by the second brain. Take probiotics that enhance and replenish the flora that breaks down food to allow nutrient absorbtion. Healthy food has loads of nutrients and supplements round out what may be lacking or missing.

Challenge yourself to maximize the cooperation of both brains through the mental discipline to stick to a fitness regimen and nutritious food lifestyle. The second brain will reward you with serotonin, muscle development, and energy. Understand that your commitment determines the speed that the Better You comes to the surface. What is your plan?
