Get Lean: Surprising Turkey Breast
Nutrition Facts and Health Benefits.

 By Rob Poulos On May 15, 2013

We all love to nosh on a big leg of turkey during the holiday season,
but have you considered adding it to your diet?  Though not everyone’s
preferred meat of choice, turkey breast is quickly gaining traction among
nutritionists–all due to its good-for-you, low-fat nutritional profile, which
meat eaters couldn’t love more.

Nutrition Facts of Turkey Breast

While a good slab of pork or beef will send your fat intake–and calorie count–soaring into unhealthy territory, turkey breast is surprisingly healthy.  A serving of turkey breast meat will cost you 110 calories and only 0.5 grams of fat, with virtually none of it coming from saturated fat.  Compare this to a chop of pork, which contains 253 calories and 8 grams of fat, of which 3 grams come from saturated fat.

As well as being low in calories and fat, turkey breast is also a nutrition powerhouse: Just one small, 3 ...

Fit for Life:
Fat-Blasting Low Calorie Foods High in Vitamin K.

 By Rob Poulos On April 24, 2013

We all know about the importance of vitamin A, C, and B in our diets–but how much do you know about vitamin K?  Don’t leave this vitamin ignored; it too plays a critical role in your health.

What is Vitamin K?

Discovered in the 1920s, vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin best known for its ability to help your blood clot–without it, you could bleed to death from something as miniscule as a paper cut or a bloody nose.  Your body also uses vitamin K to build stronger bones, and may even protect against bone fractures, though current evidence isn’t conclusive.

For most people, vitamin K deficiency is rare because the bacteria in your intestines help produce it.  You’ll also get plenty of it from dark green vegetables, such as broccoli, kale, and spinach.  If you develop a health problem that prevents your body from absorbing it, however, such as celiac disease,

Have a Beer Gut?
3 Quick Lose Visceral Fat Tips to Banish the Gut

By Rob Poulos On January 1, 2013

You’ve heard it all: The quiet snips about your sudden beer belly, being accused of being pregnant, or concerns from family members about your expanding middle.  While the accusations aren’t warranted, belly fat is a huge concern–studies have correlated
it with numerous health risks, such as an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancers.

Luckily, all hope is not lost if you’re losing the battle against the (belly) bulge.  First, here’s what you need to know about your belly fat.

What You Need to Know About Belly Fat

If your belly resembled the moon instead of a washboard, then you have two things to blame: subcutaneous fat and visceral fat.

We’re all familiar with subcutaneous fat.  This is the fat that sits between your skin and your organs, the type that you can squeeze and poke.  Subcutaneous fat is largely caused by a bad diet, namely high calorie ...

Green Tea Benefits Touch Cancer, Diabetes and
Heart Health

 By Rob Poulos On November 20, 2012

While you may have heard how wonderful green tea is for you, what you may not have heard are all the specific green tea benefits there are in store for you. While green tea is the most loudly touted, the benefits to your health also come from black and white tea, as they attack the free radicals and hydrate the body. However, the biggest benefits to your body seems to come from green tea, as it is lacking the extensive processing the other teas go through, making the antioxidants more concentrated.

As researchers continue to study this drink, more information is being uncovered about how potent green tea is, and how it can help us fight diseases. For many years, scientists have known it can be a great agent to combat cancer, but new research is being shown linking green tea to the prevention or slowing of prostate and breast cancers, too.

Pterostiblene Assists With the Lowering of Blood Pressure

 By Rob Poulos...October 30, 2012

Blood pressure in adults may be reduced with the help of a form of pterostilbene. Pterostilbene is a compound that naturally occurs in blueberries. A clinical trial was done on the effects of this compound and the findings were presented at the American Heart Association’s 2012 Scientific Sessions on High Blood Pressure Research on September 20,2012 in Washington, D.C.

This study was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study undertaken by the University of Mississippi School of Medicine and School of Pharmacy researchers. The researchers were looking to see if pterostilbene improves cardiovascular health. This ingredient is being marketed under the name pTeroPure.

Researchers studied 80 patients suffering from high cholesterol. High cholesterol was defined as a total cholesterol level of 200 or greater and or an LDL cholesterol level of 100 or greater. For six to eight weeks, twice a day, study participants took 125 mg doses of this compound, 50mg doses, 50mg ...

Zinc Deficiency in the Elderly is a Common Problem Which Needs to Be Addressed

 By Rob Poulos...October 29, 2012

Studies supported by the National Institutes of Health and other agencies have shown that a zinc deficiency may develop in humans as we age. Due to a biological mechanism, this deficiency may result in a number of health conditions. Inflammation commonly seen with many health conditions, ranging from heart disease, diabetes, cancer and autoimmune disease, may increase. The immune system may also decline.

Scientists from the OSU College of Public Health and Human Sciences joined with those from Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute to conduct a study. Findings from the study show that the elderly must ensure they get an adequate intake of zinc from their diet. More is needed at this stage in life and yet their ability to absorb this essential micronutrient is declining.

Liquid Diets and Weight Loss: It Works But Can Ruin Your Health

 By Rob Poulos On July 27, 2012

For the morbidly obese, sometimes it’s their only option–a glass of protein-enriched lunch, sometimes vanilla or chocolate flavored.  It’s a tasteless reality, but as part of a VLCD, or a very low calorie diet, sipping only liquid protein does a body good, at least when weight loss is concerned.

But the morbidly obese aren’t the only ones on this bandwagon.  In the early 90s, Oprah Winfrey shed nearly 70lbs drinking nothing but liquids; over a decade later Beyonce also dropped a stone by following The Master Cleanse diet, a liquid diet comprised of maple syrup, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper.

As far as dietitians know, the weight loss is guaranteed: People can expect to drop 10 pounds during their first week of liquid fasting.  But are liquid diets really the right solution?

400 Year Old Wild Indian Cactus Extract Fights Cravings, Slims Waists…

 By Rob Poulos...

You probably already know I’m extremely skeptical when it comes to most of the fat melting supplements out there (mostly bogus synthetic junk), which is why when I learn about a natural substance that has a solid history behind it, I am very anxious to try it out!

Well solid history might be an understatement here, as this super stuff has been used for more than 4 centuries!

Yeah, this ancient wild cactus extract has been used for over 400 years (how did we miss it all this time?) in India as a very effective natural appetite suppressant, which of course can lead to cutting down more fat and a slimmer trimmer waistline…
