Does Fat Make You Fat? - Hippocrates Health Institute | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
Today, farms produce twenty percent more food than the entire global population of 7.5 billion people require. In countries with the highest standard of living, like the United States, forty percent of food is wasted by non-consumption while more people than ever are overweight, obese and morbidly obese.

Did you know that plant based omega 3 fatty acids are needed for your body to maintain a healthy balanced weight? One of the best omega 3s is purslane, a wild edible.

 

Exercise and getting 7-9 hours sleep every night is essential as well.

 

Health tips:

Consume sprouts and wild plants (sometimes referred to as weeds). Think dandelion, purslane, mustard greens, and others. Even wild berries are preferable as fresh fruits in season.

Study: Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet Beats Low-Fat Diet for Heart Health

Study: Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet Beats Low-Fat Diet for Heart Health | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
In a recent study, researchers compared a Mediterranean low-carb diet with a low-fat diet in moderately obese individuals to find that the low-carb diet was better for heart health. Over the course of 18 months, 80 participants were randomly assigned one of the two diets–a Mediterranean style low-carbohydrate diet plus 28 grams of walnuts per day and a calorically equal low-fat diet. The mean age of the participants was 48 and their mean BMI was 31 percent. Both groups had some moderate weight loss but the low-carb group lost more waist circumference, which is important for lowering risks associated with heart disease. The low-carb group also improved their cholesterol levels and had a reduction in pericardial adipose tissue, which is fat that can gather on the heart, increasing heart disease risks. The researchers concluded in their study abstract that “The Mediterranean diet, rich in unsaturated fats and restricted carbohydrates, is

La Croix's Natural Flavors Were Not a Mystery

La Croix's Natural Flavors Were Not a Mystery | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
Odds are pretty good that you have consumed a food or beverage item in the past 24 hours containing some sort of “natural flavors.” In fact, there’s a non-zero chance you are ingesting one right now. The term is a catch-all for an enormous number of different ingredients, but the ambiguity of the label does not make any one processed food or drink product an unsolvable enigma.

Did you know that synthetic, artificial, chemical, medications, antibiotics, drugs, sweet poisons, and animal based food can decimate your gut microbiome? The gut bacteria in your body doesn’t respond well to anything made in a lab and/or inflammatory.

 

The human body hasn’t changed much from its evolutionary times when plant food ruled. Your cave ancestors ate tubers, seeds, fruit, greens for the most part.

 

Health tips:
The bacteria in your gut feed on plant based fiber. By consuming fresh produce you are feeding your bacteria what they thrive on. Fresh real whole greens, veggies, fruit are the prebiotic.

 

Consuming fermented live cultures also give your body probiotics. You can also take high quality probiotic supplements from a trusted company.
