Teens and TV (in the bedroom)-> Obesity

http://neurosciencenews.com/obesity-tv-children-6836/

Think of it as a “risk factor”.

I was talking with a friend not too long ago about raising kids; his came out as near perfect and any parent could hope for. He took very little credit for it, in fact in one case he said that it was an honor even knowing that kid. Mostly, he said, it was about not messing it up.

His trick was to always use just one standard: what is in their best interest.

Not always easy, admittedly, but the consequences for indulging youthful excesses isn’t really that easy either. It is kind of like health: pay for health now, or pay for sickness later. Choose.

101 Benefits of Exercise.98

dscf0234

Research overwhelmingly shows that regular exercise lowers the risk for many diseases, enhances the functioning of virtually every physiological system in the human body and improves psychological well-being.

98. Reduces the level of abdominal obesity – a significant health risk factor.

Exercise won’t address obesity by itself, but if you could only do one thing it would be the best first choice. To learn more about losing weight you can find a series of Posts on the Blog all starting with, ‘If you want to lose weight…’ (You could search that.)

You could also learn more about the Transform30 program by going here (there – the link:-), attending our upcoming event on Wednesday, September 28th at 7 p.m. at the office (8625 Evergreen Way, #210, Everett, WA), or just asking about it when you come into the office next time.

File Under: Sad But True

WaterMelonWhale

In spite of all the “warrior” talk, the “Boot Camp” here, “Tactical” whatever there, and a steady stream of gun promotional talk, here’s where the tire meets the road:

Less than 27% of Americans of serving age qualify to be in the military because of…. guess what?

Action becoming Drama becoming Comedy becoming Tragedy. Life in the U.S.A. Let’s vote – maybe that will help!!

“Weight May Affect Onset of Alzheimer’s”

And not in a good way (as you might guess).

That was the title to an article in today’s paper. The byline was: “More midlife pounds meant neurological disorder struck earlier.” It went on to report on a research study.

Two other quick quotes:

“Obesity in midlife has long been suspected of increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s.”

And, “Maintaining a healthy BMI at midlife is likely to have long-lasting protective effects.”

My recent Posts sharing the research reported on by Dr. Slosberg in Idaho a couple of weeks ago follow the same line. There are some high points in terms of good news that should be emphasized since most of the research is on the negative side – things are really bad health-wise in this country when it comes to the consequences of poor dietary choices and lack of exercise (or activity in general as it turns out).

Anyway, here are some very simple and effective ways to reverse all of the negative physiology and manage some of the major risk factors for illness.

1. Stop eating sugar.
2. Stop eating so much carbohydrates as a percentage of the daily diet.
3. FAST! (As in, do #1 and #2 ‘fast’ and FAST). The “new” twist from the new research is that simply extending the time between supper and breakfast longer – to up to 16 hours but 12 would be a big improvement for most of us – confers all the amazing benefits of what most people think of when they hear the word fast. What’s really cool is that ALL of the negative physiological changes (the ones that, collectively lead to Metabolic Syndrome – the precursor to all the killer diseases we slowly die of) are reversed with fasting. That is really cool news, it’s new – in a sense – but, actually the Natural Hygienic folks have been saying these exact same things since before Jethro Kloss and Paul Bragg got on the scene.

Something to think about.

Oh, and #4. Just move – do anything you can to be more active – almost anything is better than what we have right now with way too many people.

What It’s Like Today On The Health Front In America

Obese Americans now outnumber the merely overweight (Los Angeles Times). Remember when “obesity” achieved the rank of a “disease” – it wasn’t that long ago. The article highlights the depressing numbers and finishes with reference to obesity being a risk factor for the big ticket items that most Americans die of. (Here is one Post on risk factors, but use the search box to find several more…)

The majority of large employers endorse a culture of health ownership, but only 19 percent have achieved it. (OPTUM  6th Annual Wellness in the Workplace Survey) One wonders how “endorse”, “culture”, and “ownership” are defined, but that’s another story.

I think obesity is a big deal (don’t laugh), for a lot of reasons. I have mentioned it a number of times on this Blog over the past 10 years…

Here, (and workplace productivity)

Here, (obesity and choices…)

Here, (Chiropractic care and obesity)

Here, (as it relates to increased risk of back, neck and shoulder pain… it does increase that risk)

Here, (as it relates to the Back Injury Prevention course)

Here, (If you want to loose weight… I did a whole series with that as the Blog Post Title)

Here, (Lifting without weight, is that “weightlifting”)

and…

Here, (Harvard Medical School on Tai Chi)

Tai chi, the perfect exercise, is always a great place to end:-)

If You Want To Lose Weight…

… eat grapes!

Well… grapes, among other foods (e.g., apples) are said to be Catabolic, meaning they provide less calories than it takes for your body to digest and assimilate them. There are detractors who want more science before endorsing such claims; and there are big shot medical establishments sitting on that fence (this article mentions the Mayo Clinic).

Remembering that we are told to eat 7-10 servings of fruits and vegetables each day, there are other reasons a person wanting to loose weight might choose either grapes or apples – they also are said to decrease appetite: that can be good right?

I think that all begs a completely different question: what should you be eating?

People pursuing health are wise to work on creating their own personal health food list. This is the list of foods you know are good for you in particular based on whatever filter (or filters) make sense to you to use. Here are some filters to consider: blood type, alkaline, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, fermented, etc.

I began creating my list back when Eat Right For Your Blood Type came out, or shortly after. I know it’s not a great great book, and not greatly written, but it was a very good starting point. And when it comes to this, trial and error, and sensitivity to how your body responds (short as well as long term – they may mean different things) is the final gold standard.
