Diet and You: How Diet Affects Your Physical and Mental Health

In the modern era, we don’t think about our daily diet. In a world where there is a McDonald’s on every corner and there is a rack of candy by every checkout, we have every excuse to eat poorly. But what happens when we have a consistently poor diet? Unfortunately, the saying “you are what you eat” rings true.

Eating Your Way to Health, Happiness, and Well-Being

HJ: I can tell you this with utmost certainty: there is no quicker way to health than the adoption of a diet of whole, organic, unrefined foods and there is no quicker way to disease and malaise than the lack thereof.  The role of whole foods in health is greatly underestimated by the current medical establishment, although this is changing quite rapidly.  The powers that be are aware of this fact, which is why they have fought tooth and nail over the last century to devitalize our foods into nutritionless, genetically modified matter that serves little purpose than to keep us in an addicted, chemicalized stupor.

20 Pounds in 2 Months, Part I: Developing a Plan of Attack

Let’s be honest, there is a great many of us that would like to lose some weight, be it a little or a lot, and what better time to do it then right in time for summer.  I am embarking on a personal mission to lose 20 pounds, my goal is to reach that milestone by the end of May.  At slightly over 2 pounds per week, I feel like this is certainly an attainable goal with the right mindset and a determined outlook. 

 While we all wish there was a “quick fix” solution to weight loss, when you think about it 2 months is barely a drop in the bucket on the journey to a better overall life (for an 80 year old person, 2 months is only .21% of their lifetime!)  So I invite you to follow me (and join me!) as we set out to ensure a fantastic and fulfilling 99.79% of our lives.

Soda’s Scary Side Effects

Shocking Soda Fact #1: Soda fattens up your organsglass of soda coca-cola

A recent Danish study revealed that drinking non-diet soda leads to dramatic increases in dangerous hard-to-detect fats. Researchers asked participants to drink either regular soda, milk containing the same amount of calories as regular soda, diet cola, or water every day for six months. The results? Total fat mass remained the same across all beverage-consuming groups, but regular-soda drinkers experienced dramatic increases in harmful hidden fats, including liver fat and skeletal fat. The regular-soda group also experienced an 11 percent increase in cholesterol compared to the other groups! And don’t think switching to diet varieties will save you from harm: Artificial sweeteners and food dyes have been linked to brain cell damage and hyperactivity, and research has shown that people who drink diet soda have a higher risk of developing diabetes.

FIX IT WITH FOOD: The average American drinks 450 calories a day. By switching to water as your go-to beverage, you’ll make room in your diet for foods that, even in moderation, can strengthen your heart, fortify your bones, and boost your metabolism so you can lose weight more quickly.

Shocking Soda Fact #2: Soda contains flame retardantsmountain dew

Some popular soda brands, including Mountain Dew, use brominated vegetable oil—a toxic flame retardant—to keep the artificial flavoring from separating from the rest of the liquid. This hazardous ingredient—sometimes listed as BVO on soda and sports drinks—can cause bromide poisoning symptoms like skin lesions and memory loss, as well as nerve disorders. If that’s not a good enough reason not to “Do the Dew,” I don’t know what is.

Shocking Soda Fact #3: Drinking soda makes you a lab rat

Many American soda brands are sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup, a heart-harming man-made compound derived mainly from genetically engineered corn. The problem? Genetically engineered ingredients have only been in our food chain since the 1990s, and we don’t know their long-term health impacts because the corporations that developed the crops never had to test them for long-term safety. Case in point: Some recent findings suggest that genetically engineered crops are linked to digestive tract damage, accelerated aging, and even infertility!
