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.

Greatness in Failure

Great FailIt is normal to fear change. Most people have become so used to the status quo that they no longer resist it or have grown to believe that will not be successful. THIS IS LIE AND COPING MECHANISM! You have a desire to be the Better You and you can as you do not give up!

There will always be echoes of doubt from the old you because it knows you can be successful and from the haters who will just be even more rotten inside when you accomplish what they are not able to. Accept that you may not make it on the first attempt or the third or the tenth, BUT there is no failure until your discpline and consistency succumb and that does not happen until your last breath.

Go boldly into your attempt and make it a great one. The glorious appreciation found in the striving will be amaze you. Go out and bring forth the Better You!

Let’s Talk Food Money

bullshitThe average breakfast costs $5, most people just have a coffee or a coffee and a pastry. Multiply that by 5 days a week and 4 weeks in a month, we get $100. The average lunch costs $12, if you want fat food (I mean fast food) you are really only saving $3-4. Multiply that by 5 days a week and 4 weeks in a month, we get $240. The average dinner costs $17, this is not counting adult beverages or tip. Multiply that by 5 days a week and 4 weeks in a month, we get $340. This is $34/day, $170/week, and $680/month that is spent on food that for the most part is highly processed, unhealthy, and genetically modified.

If you say that is not what I spend SMACK YOURSELF, every sentence in question started with “the” then said “average”. Your poor diet is messing with your cognitive abilities. Make adjustments for your personal case. Now think about every time you said “no” to yourself, your spouse, your children, or your friends because you did not have money. More than likely a different reason was given, but the root is based off of money. This quick calculation is based off one person, what happens when it is a second in a household? when it is the children as well? How much is being spent on crap?

A change needs to be made and it begins with a challenge. One that cleans up your body from all that processed junk. Then, gives your body the vitamins and minerals that it needs to build the Better You. Finally, if you are going to get healthy save money doing it and if you are really serious make money by helping others.

Dreams and Wishes

can and willWe all have dreams, but why are they not realities? For most it is the lack of discipline and consistency that is holding you back. All that it takes to move dreams from just that to accomplished goals is action. Dreams without the discipline and consistency to make it a goal are just wishes.

It is no longer okay to live like this, you are meant to be so much more because you have the desire and simply need to focus on what it will take for you to become the Better You. Too much time is spent listening to the haters and letting their lies be truth to you. You can and you will overcome cancer, disease, debt, and unfulfillment, once you use your discipline and consistently do what you already know is the right action to implement. Eat nutritious food, always intensify your fitness plan, and include supplements that will accelerate you to accomplishment.

Accomplish your goals of physical and financial health by including a plan that does both!

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!
