So we are now well into January 2012…
Christmas, chocolates, fizzy drinks, cakes and desserts are no longer for many people as they head towards a new years promise of weight loss and being healthier.
On the Subject of health and well being I would like to share a story of an amazing person called Hannah Bradley with you. Hannah has brain cancer, she is in America undergoing cutting edge treatment at the Burzynski clinic. The clinic fails to be recognised fully by the pharmaceutical companies around the world despite showing improved results over common place cancer treatments… but you will read more about this story here (it seems the only form of health care you can trust is yourself)
Hannah is eating an Alkaline diet as part of her treatment in order to help her body keep the cancer at bay, as well as undergoing other comprehensive treatments. Eating Life foods that keep her body in a positive position to get back to health.
It is with this in mind that i would encourage everyone to eat more locally grown organic life foods. Keeping a balanced Ph level in the body is imperative to warding off disease, as well as promoting stamina, strength and general well being. We eat large amounts of the processed non-foods day in, day out, all are acidic, this only encourags the onset of disease in many forms. Sugery foods are Acidic and Cancers love Sugars!
If you are looking to loose fat and be healthier is starts not with eating the right foods but your thoughts and attitude towards them…. your thoughts are things and they will keep you healthier, fitter, and more balanced. The process of positive thoughts towards foods leads to a better diet, leading to improved health and well being… Bingo!! Winner. Exercise is easy when your feeling good and more positive about life.
There is conflicting charts in circulation in regards to Alkaline foods , simply due to how they test the foods. For example one test is to heat the food and test the mineral left overs, but the problem with this method is that the sugars (that are acidic) are burnt off during the heating process…. So with this test a banana may appear alkaline due to its high potassium content, however it is Acidic, in its natural form it is 25% sugar. This misleading type of testing is referred to as Potential Renal Acid Load or PRAL.
So If you want to choose to loose fat, and improve your health and well being take the Ph challenge, get Phit for life not just for January.
