One more reason to keep your BMI in normal range. . . Degenerative disk studies reveal that those with the highest BMI (Body Mass Index) have quicker and more serious disk degeneration, probably due to increased workload on the disk, and overall systemic inflammation created by fat cells.

Although Splenda (sucralose) is marketed as a superior sugar substitute for diabetics and dieters because of reduced caloric absorption, its drawbacks prove greater than its advertised benefits. Splenda is made by substituting two molecules from table sugar with chlorine, a known toxin in the body. It is 600 times sweeter than sugar, has multiple side effects, and studies show it may increase obesity, damage healthy gut flora, and interfere with drug absorption. Splenda was discovered accidentally while trying to produce insecticide – a convincing reason to avoid it. To maximize health, consider using small amounts of sugar or stevia when needed, and avoid sugar substitutes.
The Japanese often use the single-celled micro algea Chlorella to remove toxins, heavy metals (even mercury), and pollutants from the body. Chlorella is a powerful detoxification agent, binding to unwanted heavy metals while ignoring essential minerals like zinc, calcium and magnesium. Humans cannot digest Chlorella unless the cell wall has been cracked, so look for Broken Cell Wall Chlorella if interested in using it for detoxification. Start slowly and increase consumption with care not to overdo it. Eating cilantro at the same time may multiply detoxification effects synergetcally.
One glass of water can shut down midnight hunger pangs. Next time have water instead of that piece of pie.
