The Liquid Diet Plan

Posted by Saito on July 16, 2009

Hey guys, let’s take a look at a new/old concept…trading solid foods for drinks.

Q & A

WHAT?? Why would I want to trade my solid foods for liquid drinks?

Well obviously to help you lose weight. Water, for instance, when you drink the 8 cups of water you HAVE to drink every day…it cleanses your body of impurities and takes away unneeded fat substances. Imagine…having a constant flow of liquid through your body…(besides needing to constantly use the bathroom lol) can you imagine that coupled with daily exercise, how much weight you could lose??

Okay that makes sense, but I can drink something other then water right? If I don’t I’ll…starve O.o.

Of course you can drink something other then water, milk shakes/fruit shakes for instance. For breakfast, lunch and dinner you make your own milk shake/fruit shake. Just don’t add a lot of sugar to your shakes k? =)

How long should I stay on this liquid diet??

For as long as you wish, this won’t harm your body.

– – – – – – – – – – –

The rest now is up to you, you have to make the right choices. And I repeat, don’t add a lot of sugar to your shakes.

Stay Away From STRESS: Part 4, Parent/Adult Pressure

Posted by Saito on June 1, 2009

SuperStock_1487R-60632

Ever been hashed by an adult? I’m sure everyone has, sometimes it’s for your benefit sometimes it just makes things worst.

But why exactly does it happen? Well most of the time their just worried about you, wanting to be the best help they can be even when they don’t realize it’s just stressing you out.

Sometimes adults even give out advice (duh), but sometimes you get advice that’s either good or bad. It’s your job to decipher the good and bad advice, try your best to find good advice. Don’t try looking for trouble, sometimes something that sounds like it’s good advice turns out to be even worse then the bad advice.

Most adults are just cranky, why?:

1. Their bodies ache.

2. The economy is falling.

3. They read the news too often.

4. Work is a nightmare.

5. Not enough family time.

6. Have had no vacation time just to chill.

This is my perception of most older adults and why they scold you even on the tiniest thing.

– – – – – – – – – – – –

The best thing for you to do is to try and help them get over their own stresses, that way yours will float away like it never existed. Just be yourself, try to stay calm and handle the situation maturely!

Well guys that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS NOT FRIEND: Part 3

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Let’s bring another light to the subject of HFCS. Deep info on how it EFFECTS you…

In Suzanne Summers latest book “Breakthrough” she mentions that HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) is a brain stimulant O.o, which isn’t a good thing you see…you gain instant energy from it and it wears your brain/body down while giving you this energy, which only breaks your body :/.

Now you know it brings in extra weight to your body BUT do you know how quickly it effects?

Now I personally have experienced the rapid changes of HFCS for my entire life! But I didn’t really hit it bad till I had an accident, I ruptured my spleen (extremely gross) and that put me out of exercise for six months…though I healed and my spleen did as well I was in bad shape after all that time. JUST IN SIX MONTHS I WAS OVER WEIGHT!! I was eating normal everyday food you would find from a grocery store and in six months I was overweight…this just didn’t settle with me at ALL! I had to get rid of all the extra weight…so I started to learn more about staying healthy at that time of my life, studying techniques, health products, personal experiences from others you know ANYTHING that could truly help me…and so after three years (this whole problem started when I was ten lol and I am now fifteen O.o) of watching and learning about the food market I learned about HFCS. I was of course STUNNED by what I learned…it was in (as I stated before in my other posts) mostly everything we owned for food lol. It brings in the pounds, it wore me down so I couldn’t have the energy to get better and I was always tired…one day my family and I decided that we should shop differently from then on. We found our favorite super market called Trader Joe’s, I know I’ve spoken about it before but not as much as I am now. It has to be one of the best organic food markets out there, it has the best quality food my family and I have EVER tasted it’s so awesome :D. Once we went over there to get our food products we found that all of their food contained NO HFCS!! It was great! We were total Trader Joe’s shoppers from then on, I lost the weight I used to have just by eating their food and finally gaining the energy to lift weights, exercise and finally just RUN for the fun of it…

So yeah all of this was because of High Fructose Corn Syrup…none of it was fun for me. Look believe me it’s so worth getting off of HFCS it really is…you WILL see benefits from staying away from HFCS. Though it may take a while to get off of it just try to stay away from it and you will see results.

Heh well that’s what HFCS did to me…stay tuned for the next update :D.

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS NOT YOUR FRIEND: Part 1

Posted by Saito on December 17, 2008

STAY AWAY FROM PRODUCTS WITH HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!

I know I have talked about this before, but it’s a very BIG topic and it needs some more explaining. It’s a dangerous product that should not be used as often as it is.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is taken from normal corn. In order to get High Fructose Corn Syrup they have to extract White Corn Starch from corn and turn it into a crystal clear liquid so it may be placed in our food products. It’s a very complicated process that uses three genetically created enzymes to break down the White Corn Starch and form it into a liquid.

High Fructose Corn Syrup is consumed more then regular SUGAR! One minus for the FDA as it was approved by THEM to put it in our food products. Today High Fructose Corn Syrup is used to sweeten jams and other items like Heinz ketchup and soft drinks. It is also used in HEALTH products of all things. One of the reasons HFCS is used so often is to keep our food from rotting and lasting on our shelves, the fact that it keeps our food from rotting is great, but it’s not healthy for us; it only keeps us from using our bodies to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Four of America’s companies control 85 percent of the $2.6 billion business of High Fructose Corn Syrup: Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, Staley Manufacturing Co. and CPC International, so we know who to blame for the scandal lol.

This is a big problem concerning EVERYONE as it not only helps with the process of obesity, but it also causes BAD health problems that effect you when you are young and old: TO BE CONTINUED

Stay tune tomorrow for the next update 😀
