QFT: "For anybody who knows anything about weight loss and nutrition, you will immediately recognize how shallow, and ultimately harmful, only focusing on calories can be.  That is because 1) a healthy body cannot be measured simply by poundage and 2) less calories do not equal good nutrition."

Food Packaging Substances BPA and Phthalates Causing Obesity, Diabetes ("watch out for the packaging")

Food Packaging Substances BPA and Phthalates Causing Obesity, Diabetes ("watch out for the packaging") | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
Research shows that two common food packaging substances - BPA and phthalates - are causing numerous health problems, including obesity and diabetes.

The first chemical contaminant, a phthalate known as Di-2-ethylhexylphthalate (DEHP) was found to be closely linked to a teen’s risk of insulin resistance, a precursor to type 2 diabetes. DEHP is one of many phthalates used in food packaging, this one to soften plastic drink bottles.
... BPA is frequently used in the linings of canned food and is a known endocrine disrupter, suspected to be linked to increased risk of breast cancer, fertility problems, and increased risk of diabetes.As parents, there is certainly a responsibility to teach our children good nutrition, but we must also provide them with the right food and food products. This includes healthy food packaging. Avoid buying food in plastic containers and certainly avoid microwaving plastics, which can cause the contaminants to leech into the food. Also, avoid canned goods whenever possible.

Fight fatigue with water: Why water cures you when you are tired

 

What's the easiest, cheapest, and fastest cure when you're dragging? Water. Fatigue is, after all, one of the first signs of dehydration. Even a small drop in your body's water levels can hurt you. A recent study from Tufts University found that mild dehydration -- a loss of just 1 to 2 percent of body weight as water -- was enough to impair thinking. If it turns into full-blown dehydration, it could cause an imbalance in electrolytes like sodium and potassium, which aid muscles and heart function.

Paleo? Volumetric? DASH? Popular diet plans have pros and cons that should be weighed. | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Even a perfectly nutritious plan won’t improve your health if it costs too much, lacks flavor or is hard to follow because the meals take too long to prepare.

 

Consumer Reports recently evaluated the pros and cons of five nutrition regimens.

Diets, in general, don’t take into account the intricacies of your body’s metabolism, so they fail. “One size fits all” is not effective here. According to nutritionist and author of “Turn Up the Heat” Dr. Philip Goglia, there are three different types of metabolism, each requiring a specific diet. You can take the Metabolism Test to find out which group you belong  on DoctorsTV .com.

That ‘Sell By’ Date Doesn’t Tell You When Your Food Will Go Bad ("this causes a lot of food waste")

That ‘Sell By’ Date Doesn’t Tell You When Your Food Will Go Bad ("this causes a lot of food waste") | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
Misleading expiration dates compound the serious problem of food waste in the U.S. Fixing food waste could greatly reduce emissions.

The Harvard report recommended making “sell by” dates invisible to consumers again, replacing them with a “reliable, coherent, and uniform consumer-facing dating system” that would give consumers the information they need, and nothing more.

Misleading expiration dates compound the serious problem of food waste in the U.S. Americans throw out about 40% of their food and decomposing food releases methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon. Seventeen percent of U.S. methane emissions come from landfills, according to the EPA. And 2 percent of all U.S. energy goes to produce food that will be wasted.

Food waste globally emits so much in the way of greenhouse gases that if it was a country, it would be the third-largest emitter in the world. Fixing food date labeling could go a long way towards reducing the U.S. contribution to those emissions.

The human body is made to move, but in today's world, we don't do nearly enough of it: As many as 50 million Americans, according to one count, are living sedentary lives.

 

But the simple act of walking is great for your health; research has linked it to a host of benefits, from a healthier weight to reduced fatigue to relief from stress and mild depression symptoms.

 

At the same time, the link between inactivity and chronic health problems has been firmly established. A sedentary lifestyle has been associated with lower life expectancy, slower metabolism, and increased risk of heart attack.

Indeed: better do go out for a walk than sit on your butt all day wondering about if you feel right to go for the strenuous workout you intended to do, but don't feel to do right now, maybe later, maybe tomorrow...

 

In der Tat ist es besser, einfach mal Spazieren zu gehen, statt zu Hause rumzusitzen und darüber nachzudenken, ob man gerade gut genug fühlt für das eigentlich geplante anstrenge Workout oder es auf später verschieben soll oder auf morgen...
