Stay far, far away from these foods and you'll be feeling fine. Just like it matters what type of oil or gasoline you put in your car, the same is true for your body. Don't sacrifice with a low-grade pantry. Upgrade to the best and your body will thank you!

  1. Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils / Trans Fatty Acids -- Hydrogenated fats are fats that are one step away from plastic. Plastic is virtually indestructible by biology, including in our bodies. This means that foods made with hydrogenated fats will not spoil or go stale as fast. Unfortunately, these oils are

A single daily glass of wine with dinner may rob you of the ability to read, drive, or even watch TV.

Age-related macular degeneration is a common condition in which the central 20/20 vision area of the eye degenerates over time. While peripheral vision is preserved, you permanently lose the ability to see details. A recent study of 21,000 people over a 12 year period, demonstrated that drinking as little as 1 ounce of alcohol, which is one 6 ounce glass of wine, one can of beer, or one shot of whiskey per day, increased the risk of macular degeneration and permanent damage to your vision by

Belly Fat Has Been Shown to Predict ED

By Dr. Jerry Mixon July 26, 2013

By now everyone has seen those TV ads for erectile disorder drugs. And while they are useful for people who need them, an even better idea is not to need them in the first place.

What the ads don’t tell you is that the single best indicator as to whether or not you’re going to need their product is right in front of you, it’s the size of your belly. There is a direct relationship between the size of a man’s abdomen and his risk of needing erectile disorder drugs. Men with firm flat bellies rarely need these medications. Men whose bellies hide their belt buckles need help all too often.

Ladies, if you notice that the man in your life has an ever-expanding waistline, you might gently remind him of what the future may hold If things don’t change. And, give him help and encouragement in his weight loss efforts. The size of a man’s belly is the best predictor of erectile function.

Pure Green Coffee Extract - Web

I’m often asked about the best supplements for weight loss. Most of the things I see sold have very little science to back them up. The exception to this rule seems to be green coffee extract.

Several well done peer-reviewed studies show that green coffee extract, in the range of 1100 to 1200 mg per day, does a good job of enhancing weight loss. Those who use an adequate dose of green coffee extract coupled with a reasonable diet and exercise program do a better job of losing weight than those who eat the same diet and do the same exercise without using the extract. There are also some indications that green coffee

Have you ever wondered why Asian cultures tend to be thin? Part of the answer may be green tea.

Fat cells, like every cell in your body, eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Green tea contains chemicals that inhibit the formation of new fat cells. They don’t do anything to the fat cells that already exist, but they do make it harder for your body to make new fat cells.

This means that green tea will not cause you to lose weight in the short run. But consistent consumption over a long period of time will make it harder and harder for your body to replace those fat cells as they wear out. And
