Five Guys bacon cheeseburger and half a regular-size fries has 1,230 calories. You’d have to do burpees for 2 hours to burn it off.
GO GREEN FOR BETTER HEALTH
Naturally green foods like broccoli, kale, and green beans (not green M&M’s) are high in chlorophyll, which helps the body remain alkaline. Superfoods like spirulina, wheat grass and other green drinks also help counteract acidity from cell metabolism, sugar, meat, stress and processed foods. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment, so to maximize health and help prevent cancer, eat lots of naturally green food. Have you had your greens today?”

BACTERIA AND YOUR WAISTLINE
A recent study in “Science” revealed that bad gut bacteria may be making us fat. Gut bacteria from human twins (one fat, one lean) was given to mice, and those given “fat” bacteria grew fat, and the ones given “lean” bacteria did not. The study suggests that gut bacteria balance is correlated with obesity. To maximize health, consider eating foods loaded with good bacteria including fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, tempeh, kombucha and probiotics while minimizing foods that promote bad bacteria like sugar and processed junk foods.”
Aloe Vera is not only excellent for burns, digestive inflammation, and blood sugar control, but it is also effective for long-term chronic pain caused by inflammation. Aloe Vera contains 200 nutrients the body can use to control inflammation, and it contains an exclusive enzyme that breaks down bradykinin, the amino chain that causes painful muscles to contract. For a natural alternative to pain killers, investigate the use of Aloe Vera plant or gel (not juice) for inflammation relief.

Most men have erections every hour to hour and a half during sleep. Most people’s bodies and minds are much more active when they’re sleeping than they think. The combination of blood circulation and testosterone production can cause erections during sleep and they’re often a normal and necessary part of REM sleep.
Studies show that hydrochloric acid in the stomach weakens with age, suggesting that many of the over 50 crowd may significantly improve nutrient absorption by supplementing with hydrochloric acid (Betaine Hydrochloride). Additional digestive enzymes may also aid nutrient absorption. Many digestive issues like gas and bloating resolve when digestive aids are used. To maximize digestion, investigate further the usefulness of Betaine Hydrochloride and digestive enzymes.
A Nutrient-dense diet may be one of the best cancer preventatives around. Research suggests that toxin overload may contribute significantly to immune system weakening, which increases vulnerability to improper cell replication (cancer). High nutrient foods keep the immune system strong, so cancer can’t thrive. To maximize health and minimize cancer risk – add as many high nutrient, low sugar super foods to your diet as possible to crowd out low nutrient junk foods.
The amazing new field of “Nutrigenomics” is the combination of the study of nutrition and genetics. Genetic testing reveals genes that are challenged in digestion or immune system function, then nutritional formulas are suggested to compensate for weaknesses to maximize health and longevity. Nutrigenomics is a new field, but holds the potential to be the wave of the future for individualized medicine to maximize health. To discover your nutritional needs based on your genes, search for a Nutrigenomics practitioner in your area.
OBESITY AND CANCER
Obesity is a high risk factor for cancer, since fat itself produces inflammatory chemicals and excess estrogen, both of which promote cancer. Not only that, the same sugar that leads to obesity also feeds cancer. To minimize the risk of developing cancer, cut down on sugar and starchy carbohydrates, and make sure your weight is within normal ranges.
