If Fast Food Sees A Problem, So Should Parents

Rock Hill, South Carolina (PRWEB) March 23, 2015

With news March 9, 2015 that Burger King is removing sugary sodas as a Kid?s Meal option, Dr. Myo Nwe of the Ace Medical Weight Loss Center in South Carolina is encouraging people to rediscover the health benefits of water.

Nwe, author of the weight management guide ?Fat Me Not? and co-creator of the Slimplate Weight Loss System, points to a string of scientific studies that show how water can be beneficial to migraine sufferers and those battling dementia.

?Eliminating the sugar intake from sodas is great,? she writes, ?but let?s not replace it with something packed with only marginally less sugar. Water replenishes us in ways we are just beginning to understand, and it?s always been great for the waistline.?

?When a fast food giant is able to recognize the severe impact to health these drinks can represent, that means it should be very obvious to the rest of us,? she continues. ?Just one 16 ounce sugary drink a day generally equals 2 pounds of weight gain per month. Which is roughly 25 pounds per year. Is it worth that??

Dr. Nwe is an obesity medicine specialist practicing in both Carolinas. In her book ?Fat Me Not?, she uses a foundation of science to reexamine many of the common myths surrounding weight loss, and focuses much of her attention on the chemistry involved in our digestive system.

?Water is more than essential to life, it?s crucial to balanced health,? Nwe says. ?It?s amazing the benefits it can bring to our mind and body, but too many of us rely on sodas and energy drinks. Those choices can bring a lot of baggage, including very high levels of sugar and caffeine.?

A 2012 study Dr. Nwe references found that less than 2% dehydration can slow cognitive abilities, increase headache symptoms and alter moods. A similar study in 2004 determined that headaches caused or exacerbated by dehydration are quite common.

?We need to turn this science into action. We learn more good news about the benefits of waters, we should put that knowledge to good use. As warmer weather approaches, we should relearn water.?

Nwe?s tip from her book ?Fat Me Not? is to make such changes as a family unit, with parents and children participating in the challenge to ?drink your way to a healthier tomorrow.?

What Foods Should I Eat? A New Video Launched by Conscious Counselor

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2014

When a person decides to start a healthy lifestyle, a big portion of that change is a change in diet. There are many myths out there as to what to eat to lose weight or to become healthy in general. With a wide variety of diets confusing consumers who wish to eat healthy, having a knowledgeable guide is extremely beneficial in the process of taking the path to a healthier life through food. Now, Conscious Counselor helps guide people who wish to become healthy in the right direction with their informative video on YouTube that talks about what food to eat and how it helps your body.

In the new video released by Conscious Counselor, the speakers encourage viewers to do their research. Different people have different diets that make them feel good and feel healthier. Some diets are particular to the person such as a blood-type diet that is tailored to that specific person. Picking what is right for a particular person can change someone?s energy level and outlook. For more information on this, or to view the full video, please click on: What foods should I eat?

The speakers in the video encourage others to see how their body feels after eating certain foods. Some foods such as bread can make a person feel sluggish and their body does not necessarily welcome other grains as well. Trial and error can be a large part in finding a healthy diet that works best for one person. For more info on this, please click on: What is a healthy diet?

Reading what foods are made out of can be beneficial too. Knowing what a person is putting into their body can help them make more conscious decisions about their diet for a happier and healthier lifestyle

Cleanses can also be an option to start off fresh with a new diet in their digestive system. One of the main reasons for a cleanse is to get everything out of the body that has been left over from a person?s life. There are many different types of cleanses that a person may do for a variety of reasons. This can be great for someone who is looking to go from a vegetarian diet to a vegan diet, or someone that is looking to get any unwanted masses stray from their digestive tract. Doing a cleans and listening to the body’s reactions really allows the question to come in, “Just what is a healthy diet?”

Sead Pepic says in the video, ?One of my first cleanses, on day three my brain felt like it was in a pot of boiling water. It felt incredibly hot; the actual brain inside the skull, but when you feel my forehead it?s fine. Then I asked my health coach, ?What was that?? and he asked me if I had ever done the drug speed in my life and I?m like ?No. But I was on medication for A.D.D. which is similar to speed, but that was 10 or 15 years ago.? He said, ?It was still in you. Your body is getting it out and even though you might feel sick or have sick symptoms on day three of a cleanse?your body is not getting sick.?? Foe the full video, please click on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2sGImqqqUc.

Many of the speakers in the video experienced caffeine withdrawals on day two and day three of the cleanse, however they all felt better afterwards. That feeling really allowed to ask themselves, “What foods should I eat?”

Pepic also talks about an awakening experience he had during a cleanse for a new business idea. He says, ?I was doing a cleanse and I felt incredibly alive. I hadn?t done a cleanse in a year at that time. Every time I do a cleanse I remember what it?s like to be alive again. When doing a cleanse your energy goes towards your brain; your thoughts and ideas. During a cleanse I had a brand new business idea and I gave a lecture to women only about how to attract a quality man.?

Pepic thanks this idea to his cleanse and the power the process provided him.

Later in the video, the speakers also talk about emotional eating and how they have overcome different types of emotional eating. One speaker talks about how his 38-day cleanse helped him overcome emotional eating because he did not have eating to fall back on.

There are many different diets to choose from whether someone is looking to have more energy or to lose weight, making healthy and conscious choices can have a major impact on someone?s lifestyle for the better.
