So we have been talking about Secret # 5 Dieting and Eating Healthy for 2 weeks now. Like I said its complex. So I will try to simplify it here so we can move on to Secret # 6 tomorrow. There are two main forms of carbs. Simple and Complex. Simple Carbs includes fructose, glucose, and lactose, and are also found in whole fruits. The Carbs in certain foods, which contains simple sugars are highly refined grains,  such as white flour and white rice and as you know are easily broken down and cause blood sugar levels to rise fast. I had mentioned in earlier blog that is causes a rapid rise in blood sugar which may increase risk of developing health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

2019 is right around the corner. As usual we all make New Year's Resolution, and in the beginning we are all very excited until everyday grind kicks in. Then we can't keep up with the Resolution we made to ourselves. Let's be honest, have you been able to keep your 2018 Resolution? Well its not too late.

For example the USDA says we should take in 2 servings of fruits a day and the American Heart Association says 4 fruit servings a day. So how do we know who is right?

So this week, I've been talking about Dieting and Healthy Eating. Like I said, its a complex subject,  so we have to take it in little pieces.  First I talked about Raw Foods. We need to buy our foods RAW. If you can't the next option is to buy it pre-cut fresh. The last option is to buy it fresh but Frozen. The most important thing is to read the Ingredient list on the back to make sure, they have listed only the raw produce on it. If you see anything else then don't get it. About preparing our meals, the simpler the meal the easier it is for your body to break it down and process it. I prefer to stir-fry or bake my meals. Learn this also, it is fast, quick, and easy. Just throw all your favorite veggies in the pan with olive oil or coconut oil...
