Best Plant-Based Proteins
If we want to be at our healthiest, we must know which components are important and answer the question, “Are plant proteins better than meat proteins?” If one chooses to eat stricly plant proteins, i.e. being a vegan, what are the healthiest plant based proteins?
If you're wanting to stop eating meat and consume your proteins from plants, you'll certainly find numerous bits of information that seem to conflict one another in your initial science and health research. . This is especially true when it comes to eating meat and choosing not to include meat in your diet. .
Hydration From Foods
Did you know that water can be eaten? When it comes to whole foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, within it, there is water that can be eaten.
The author of the book “The science of cell Water” wrote that the water you drink “will go right through you,” and take any nutrition with it. Hydration is about the water you preserve and it's no longer about the amount of water you drink.
Molecules that facilitate the entry of water into the cells is naturally found in fruits and veggies. This process of cell hydration occurs slowly and lasts longer than simply drinking a glass of water.
Physical Activity Hydration And Health
How exactly does hydration work? What is the correlation between hydration and it's health benefits and can you get a lot of hydration from foods ?
After we are born, it's been estimated that ¾ of our body is made up of water. Science shows that as we become older, the content of the water in our bodies could inevitably be as low as ½. Why? Our cells lose water as we age and our well being is decided by using our cellular’s potential to maintain water.
Immune System Digestive
What exactly is a normal digestive process and do probiotics and gut health play a role? If so, how do probiotics work in the gut and use them effectively?
It's important for everyone to understand the relationship between probiotics and inflammation. Once a firm grasp is achieve, the next step would be to take that relationship and explain how it plays in a role in destroying things that really wreck havoc in our bodies.
Regulating Hunger And Satiety
Have you ever wondered how to reduce overweight and obesity? I know, silly question, but you'd be surprised at how many people want to achieve it but don't know where to begin. Do you have a healthy eating plan with snacks and how can you prepare your body to regulate your blood sugar throughout the day.
What Does It Mean To Be Holistically Healthy?
Is there a way to look at holistic nutrition as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle? The bottom line is that is formed around "healthy eating" habits and nutrition, but how do we do that? I'm going to be discussing the second pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy, and that's being nutritionally or digestively strong.
Whether we realize it our not, our nutrition is ultimately tied to physical health. I believe it is so critical that it should have it's own pillar and could actually stand alone. Part of this is because getting the full value of nutrition is customized based on each individual's age, sex, activity level, and body chemistry; every is totally different. This in order for us to strengthen this pillar, careful attention should be placed on your diet and that you give specific focus on digestion.
Are There New Nutritional Guidelines?
The old food pyramid was wrong. In fact it still is wrong. What was wrong with the old food guide pyramid? For decades people have tried to follow it, but as a society, we've only becoming unhealthier. So, I'm going to be giving you part one of Jared's top 10 nutritional guidelines that you could use going forward.
Now, before you decide not to listen to my podcast, I want you to throw everything that you've ever thought about nutrition out the window; food pyramid, low-fat, low-sugar, throw it all out the windows. We're going to look at things differently.
Number one, eat well for tomorrow, not specifically just for today. What do I mean by that? Is that what you eat today is going to effect not only you, but your future generations to come, think about that.
Should You Eat The Same Foods?
Where do you get your nutrition, and when it comes to getting the most nutrition, is there a way how to eat different foods? This ultimately comes down to food diversity.
We could probably say our standard of living has increased over the past, let's say, a hundred years. Unfortunately, that's not reflected in our nutrition and the way that we get nutrition from the foods that we eat. We spend less money proportionally-wise on whole foods today than we did, let's say, 50 years ago. And that connection that we have with foods and the foods that we consume is getting weaker and weaker by the day. Food diversity is down, illnesses are up. There has to be some sort of correlation there.
How Long Does It Take To Lose Weight With Probiotics?
It's amazing what our gut bacteria and microbiome can do. When it comes to those extra pounds, the gut bacteria may cause and fight disease and obesity, but how long does it take for probiotics to help you lose weight? Taking a step back you have to understand exactly how your weight is affected by the unbalanced biome of our bellies. The bottom line is whether digestive issues can cause weight gain? How could it?
Can Prebiotics Help With Acid Reflux?
What is prebiotic fiber? Is it beneficial to our gut bacteria and digestive health? In today's episode of the Go With Your Gut Podcast, I look at what I think is a food group that is absolutely vital to better gut health and digestion: prebiotics and prebiotic foods.
It seems everyone knows what a probiotic is, but rarely do people mention prebiotics in the same breath. It's important to know the differences between probiotics and prebiotics simply because one is living bacteria and one is food for that living bacteria. The old adage "You Are What You Eat" holds true for our gut bacteria too. If you want to read more, or listen to or download this podcast, follow the link.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
