Serious about Health

When I was young, dieting and exercise is all about losing weight (for aesthetic purposes of course). But as I approach my mid 30s and realized how I abused my body with smoking, skipping meals, and a high cholesterol/sugar diet, I am now trying to research and really dig deep on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

I started going to the gym since my weight just keeps on adding up and because of that I have to quit smoking since I can't run 30 minute straight without my lungs giving up on me.

Then, I heard Jillian Michael's podcast and found the missing piece. Of course, how could I miss that - chemicals! I don't eat real food since I have this wrong presumption that I am going to lose weight if I am going to restrict my calories to 100-200 calories per meal. But I turned out, processed food like biscuits, sweets are so wrong for me. That's why I didn't lose weight even if I was starving!

So, right now, I have to declutter and clean my system. Being sick all the time is a sign that I have to take control of my body.

Here are some tips that I picked up from a kindle book review. Hope I can continue practicing these!

1. Stop Eating Chemical because your body doesn't know how to process them,
therefore, you gain weight.
2. Choose the real food over the lower fat because you'll eat less and feel more satisfied.
3. Go organic when possible.
4. You can still eat chocolate and drink wine but everything in moderation.
5. Opt for glassware over plastic to cut down more chemical absorption.
6. Those 100 calorie snacks are pure marketing and chemicals.
7. Work out!
8. The amount of chemicals that have snuck into our food system has
reached an alarming rate.
9. Think about OTC drugs as they also contain chemicals.
10. Eat better, eat right and you can cut down a lot of health issues.

Amen? AMEN!

Suggest to use glass bottle for your water canteen than plastic or metal.

Lifefactory water bottle is good or kahit anong glass bottle :).

I recommend also you read Michael Pollan's books :). I have Omnivore's Dilemma, I'll give it to you when I get back!

I've been dieting, eating right, eating vegetarian, switching back to chicken and fish only, because red meat sticks with you for weeks, etc, etc, etc... It's exhausting. I've finally gotten it all figured out, but now I suffer from such horrible reflux, that everything makes me feel gross... veggies, organic, low sodium... bleh! BUT, you're right... the key is to shop the outside of the store... I do buy low-fat and skim milk cheeses, fat free greek yogurts... but I get natural fats from meats, and nuts... Eh, the things we do to look thin and pretty :) I even started a blog aside from my regular one, that just talks about health. I really need to get back to it, but things have been busy :)

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

This is our new business venture. Please place your orders just in time for Valentine's!
The Iphone experience

Truth be told, I was happy with my glamorous MMS only phone. I can text, I can call and it's handy. But when I begin my relationship with my Iphone, I am a convert to super moder handheld devices.

I literally don't open my laptop anymore when I am at home. I only need my Iphone to check my emails, facebook, update my twitter, watch videos, podcasts, etc. I don't want to work with documents at home so this is something I find so useful.

I am really at awe with its features (you have to understand that I took a very giant leap in technology). The mere fact that I can check emails and update my calendar are useful features - in a major-major way.

Imagine having the convenience of reading the news, downloading time filler games and of course, there's this useful app - FOOD SPOTTING! It can help you find the nearest bakery, bulalohan, etc.

On the other hand, knowing that this device can be tracked can be spooky! Imagine that it has all of your informatio…
