At this time of year Its full swing into many weight loss plans with clients.This year has been no exception. Peoples eating habits are fascinating! People are still eating what is thought to be ‘healthy’ foods due to clever labeling . Buying a meal deal from a garage with ‘low fat’ low cal or no added sugar splashed all over it, a sandwich, bag of crisps and a yoghurt. It must be ‘healthy Or else they wouldn’t be able to sell it as that right?
I regularly see a blank food diary other than coffee and a cereal bar until 7 pm and then a bowl of pasta and a bottle of wine?? Where is the nutrition?
Sometimes we just see food as something that either makes us fat or makes us thin. When I look at somebody’s food diary the first thing I am looking for is fresh nutrients that will energize,feed nurture and love the body.
Below are 10 facts about your amazing body to help you understand more why loving the right food is essential for health. Once you begin to understand the reasons good clean fuel is needed to enrich the body then the the positive changes in weight loss, digestion, energy levels and the immune system will start to kick in to place.
All clients who started in January have been following the So Lean and Clean fat loss way of eating and fantastic results have occurred combined with moderate exercise.
10 reasons to eat the best foods.
1)You use 200 muscles to take one step. Depending on how you divide up muscle groups, just to take a single step you use 200 muscles. That’s a lot of work for the muscles considering most of us take about 10,000 steps a day.
2)Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? It’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a Ferrari
3)The human heart creates enough pressure to squirt blood 30 feet.No wonder you can feel your heartbeat so easily. Pumping blood through your body quickly and efficiently takes quite a bit of pressure resulting in the strong contractions of the heart and the thick walls of the ventricles which push blood to the body.
4)Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour. You may not think much about losing skin if yours isn’t dry or flaky or peeling from a sunburn, but your skin is constantly renewing itself and shedding dead cells.
5)Every day an adult body produces 300 billion new cells. Your body not only needs energy to keep your organs up and running but also to constantly repair and build new cells to form the building blocks of your body itself.
6)Scientists have counted over 500 different liver functions. You may not think much about your liver except after a long night of drinking, but the liver is one of the body’s hardest working, largest and busiest organs. Some of the functions your liver performs are: production of bile, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, and detoxification.
7)You get a new stomach lining every three to four days. The mucus-like cells lining the walls of the stomach would soon dissolve due to the strong digestive acids in your stomach if they weren’t constantly replaced. Those with ulcers know how painful it can be when stomach acid takes its toll on the lining of your stomach
8)Each kidney contains 1 million individual filters. They filter an average of around 1.3 litres (2.2 pints) of blood per minute, and expel up to 1.4 litres (2.5 pints) a day of urine.
9) The focusing muscles of the eyes move around 100,000 times a day. To give your leg muscles the same workout, you would need to walk 80km (50 miles) every day.
10)In 30 minutes, the average body gives off enough heat (combined) to bring a half gallon of water to boil.
Have a great Valentines week and give big LOVE to your body.
