The Acai Berry Diet

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

The acai berry is actually one of the greatest superfoods found on Earth. A superfood is a term used to describe a food that boasts an inordinately high phytonutrient content along with a reasonable to small amount of calories. Scientific studies support the belief that these foods offer exceptional health benefits such as assisting in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and protecting the body from disease such as cancer and cardiovascular disease.

The acai berry has the added benefit of boosting your metabolism and helping the body burn fat, which can contribute to weight loss. Like many of the healthy superfoods the acai berry contains a significant amount of fiber, which helps to break down nutrients and move food through your digestive tract. But the acai berry also contains a remarkable range of macronutrients, micronutrients and trace elements. The acai berry has also been proven to have superior and exceptionally high antioxidant activity.

The acai berry diet can help you to lose weight but it is by no means a magic bullet. You will still need to reduce your food intake and exercise; however, your body will respond well to the added nutrition and that can make both exercising and watching your diet easier to do. Our bodies crave superior nutrition and sometimes a body will naturally release excess fat when it is given the superior nutrition that it needs.

There are many acai diet products available on the market today. You can consume the whole fruit, drink the delicious juice or even take it in capsule or pill form. Any one of these ways can contribute to your healthy weight loss. Just make sure that the product you are using is processed using the highest standards. There are inferior products out there that will not give you the results that you want so be diligent about getting a quality product.

The rich antioxidant content and nutritional value of the acai berry diet will contribute greatly to your weight loss goals but you will still need to watch your diet and do some exercise. However, because of the superior nutrition that you are providing your body dieting and exercising will be easier to do.

Salt And You Health

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

The fossils of man that are over 10,000 years old have no salt in them. They figure that that is when man started using salt. People have been around millions of years.The refrigerator is only a recent invention. You can leave fruit and vegetables out of the refrigerater but animal products need refrigeration.

Salt kills bacteria so that would help keep animal products to stay good a little longer. Salt can be used to keep foods from becoming bad, until they could ferment. It kills life. Salt can be rubbed into cuts to torture people.

When people consume salt, the body is constantly trying to get rid of it but can only get rid of so much per day with you consuming more everyday. So it stores the excess under the skin. Salt needs to absorb lots of water to prevent it from being toxic. So salt causes a lot of water weight.

If you put 4 ounces of salt in water and drink it, it will kill you. It is simple chemistry. That much salt has about 50,000 mg of sodium. Salt is 50% sodium. No food has anywhere near that amount of a mineral.

LATEST NEWS: In an effort to reduce high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, the American Medical Association is urging “the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to revoke the ‘generally recognized as safe’ (GRAS) status of salt and to develop regulatory measures to limit sodium in processed and restaurant foods.”

Vitamins and minerals have a minimum RDA (recommended daily allowance). All of them have this, except sodium. Instead it has a maximum RDA.

If you look in the foods made by nature they have around 15 milligrams of sodium. When it comes to man-made foods, a large pizza has 3,000+ mg of sodium and a can of chicken noodle soup has 2,000+ mg of sodium. An avocado has 21 mg of sodium but 1,400 mg of potassium making it a very healthy food for you.

The body determines how much water you need by the concentration of sodium in it. That is the reason that if you are on a raft in the ocean with water all around you, you can still die of dehydration. You will only get more dehydrated drinking the ocean water or your salty urine. This is the reason that I call it anti-water. It makes it so water will not work.

There is a book called The Rice Diet Solution (�2006) by Kitty Gurkin Rosati R.D. and Robert Rosati M.D. says that in addition to salt causing water retention, it also stimulates the appetite causing people to eat more.

During the first 5 days of a fast the body dumps huge amounts (up to 80,000 mg per day) of salt so it gets rid of all the excess salt. So this is why someone can lose up to 15 pounds of weight during the first 5 days of a fast. They lose 15 pounds of water.

If the body continued to lose sodium after this excess is removed then the person would die after a few more days of fasting due to lack of sodium instead of being able to fast a month. But the body no longer needs to get rid of it so the sweat and urine are no longer salty.
