Become a Better Runner with Ian.

Become a Better Runner with Ian. 17 hours ago Runners know how great that running makes them feel. Running gives them more energy
to do everything in their life, it helps them to live longer, it keeps them healthier,
it helps their mental health, etc. You know how great running is fo r you. But,
what about your friends? Are they runners? Do you feel that running could make
them a happier person? Do you not invite them to go places with you because you
know that they don't have the energy to keep up? Maybe you should
help them to become a Better runner, (besides sharing my guide).

I have found that helping others to become runners is such a rewarding experience.
It's great to watch them go through those first steps of starting a running program.
Watching them progress from those first steps to the excitement when they
complete their first 5K race is something that you'll always remember.

It's so much fun to go with them when they get their first pair of shoes,
watching them trying on running clothes. Go back and remember when you first
started running. Remember the joy that you felt when you first put on
those new running shoes and headed out the door? Imagine helping your friends
capture that same feeling!
But, you need to watch that you don't get them starting to do too much too soon.
You don't want them to get burned out or injured. Helping them to get started
correctly is truly important. Remember that you didn't go out and run 3 miles that first day.
If they haven't been doing anything, make sure that you are getting them
walking first to get their body used to doing some physical exercise.

Getting a newbie runner out on the roads is such a great feeling! You're
helping someone get healthier and happier. Just make sure that you do it correctly.

Helping someone get started running is so rewarding.
But, you need to help them get started on the right foot.

Or even download the free guide and send it to them.

Top 10 Foods to Fight This Ugly Killer.

Top 10 Foods to Fight This Ugly Killer. | Cancer Awareness Month | Scoop.it


As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
and the main focus seems to be finding a cure for this
terrible disease. This is a noble pursuit, we believe that preventing
cancer is just as—if not more—important. After all, the best defense against cancer is never
to get it, right?

 

Did you know that your body creates hundreds or even thousands of cancer cells every single
day? Without conscious thought, your body’s natural immune system seeks out and destroys
these cancerous cells before they’re able to cause any damage.


Able to heal itself naturally, your body is a cancer-killing machine. However, when your
immune system is compromised by an overload of carcinogens, poor nerve supply, lackluster
diet and inconsistent exercise, your body simply can’t hold back the constantly multiplying
cancer cells. Cancer typically breeds in the body for years—or even decades—before being
detected and diagnosed.

 

Make sure your body is primed to kill cancer at all times to give you and your
family the gratest advantage fighting the worst disease known to mankind!

I have included the top 10 Food Basics to Protect You and Your Family.

I encourage everyone to not only make these foods part of your daily
lives but also recommend them to everyone you know and love.Together
we can beat this!

 

NUTS: They are high in Antioxidants. Brazil nuts in particular help
against Prostate Cancer because they contain a highly bioavailable and
therapeutic form of Selenium.

 

BERRIES: Strawberries, Raspberries and Blueberries have been shown
to help prevent cancers of the Skin, Bladder, Lung and Breast, largely
because of their Ellagic Acid content. All are high in Antioxidants, but the
Anthocyanosides in Blueberries are the most powerful known in science.

 

CITRUS FRUITS: Including Grapefruit, Oranges, and Lemons, help to
remove carcinogens from the body, preventing various cancers. They
may also stimulate cancer-killing immune cells. They are high in Vitamin
C and Beta Carotene.

 

AVOCADOS: They are high in Antioxidants. It is now believed that they
may be useful in treating Viral Hepatitis, which causes Liver Cancer, as
well as other types of Liver damage.

 

TOMATOES: It’s one of the anti-cancer super foods that contains
Lycopene, and is high in Antioxidants that attack cancer-triggering free
radicals in the body. Lycopene is known to kill Mouth Cancer cells and
is linked to reduced risk of Breast, Prostate, Pancreas and Colorectal
Cancers. Tip: It is actually more effective when cooked.

 

CARROTS: High in Beta Carotene, carrots fight many forms of cancer
including Lung, Stomach, Intestinal, Bladder, Prostate, Breast, Throat
and Mouth. Tip: It’s better to eat them raw rather than cooked and in
moderation due to high sugar content.

 

CURCUMIN: This power-packed spice found in Curry Powder and
Turmeric contains compounds that protect against breast cancer and
tumor growth. Tip: Simply add it to soups, spreads, smoothies, salads,
etc.

 

ORGANIC ANIMAL PRODUCTS: (Wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef,
pasture raised poultry and eggs): Fish has high levels of Omega 3 Fatty
Acids and high levels of Vitamin D, which is a big player in breast cancer
prevention. Grass-fed beef and organic butter have very high levels of
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) which is known to be a powerful cancer-
fighting agent. Studies have shown that when human breast cancer
cells were incubated in high CLA milk fat, the growth of the cancer cells
decreased by 90 percent. A French study also showed that women with
the highest CLA levels had a 74 percent lower risk of developing breast
cancer.

 

DARK, LEAFY GREENS: Dark leafy greens are a nutritional powerhouse
of vitamins and minerals that should be a regular part of everyone’s diet.
Greens like Collards, Escarole, Kale, Mustard Greens, Romaine Lettuce,
and Swiss Chard are high in Carotenoids and Antioxidants, which inhibit
the growth of certain types of breast cancer cells. Greens are also high
in Phytochemicals, which boost enzymes that detoxify carcinogens and
help repair DNA damage to cells which can develop into cancer if left
unchecked.

 

BROCCOLI: One of the best cancer-fighting foods on the planet, it’s
loaded with various substances that fight or inhibit a wide range of
cancers including Breast, Prostate, Skin, Colon and Rectal Cancers. Tip:
Sulforaphane, which assists the body in metabolizing hormones, directly
inhibits cancer cell proliferation and is found in up to 1,000 times greater
concentration in the sprouts of the Broccoli versus the mature plant.We all

know it doesn't taste the best but look at all the good you are doing for

your body!
