  • Health Goals for 2013
    By Health Blog on December 30, 2012 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    With 2012 just about over it’s time to think about resolutions for the new year. My year hasn’t been the best in terms of health as I have over-eaten and under exercised! So I’m carrying a few pounds too many!

    One good thing I have done this year is to quit drinking alcohol completely! No more fine red wine for this little duck. And it really hasn’t been a problem. Friends keep trying to ply me with alcohol, just as the system tries to push it on me at every turn, but it isn’t a problem once you have really made up your mind to quit. My mind and liver thank me for it every day :-)

    So, anyway, here’s my health goals for 2013

    1. Drink more filtered water
    2. Slowly ween myself off coffee: One per day.. then One only when I go to cafes.. then eventually just move to drinking green tea.
    3. Exercise daily, even if its just a 15 minute walk each day.
    4. Become my ideal weight.
    5. Have at least 2 non-meat days every week.
    6. Less sugar!
    7. Less wheat! See Wheat Belly book.
    8. Shop more at farmers markets and organic shops: ignoring idiots like Dr. Oz.
    9. Buy a bike to ride through the forest near my place.
    10. Smile regularly :-)

    What are some of your new years resolutions regarding your health and fitness?

  • Diabetic Diets Fight against Obesity

    obesity

    Obesity or overweight is a side effect of diabetes. Maybe ‘side effect’ is not the best variant, but I just wanted to say that a person who falls sick with diabetes can get overweight problems in addition to those caused by the disease.

    People who suffer from diabetes (any type of it) should care much more about their weight than anybody else. Here we can trace a string of logic: diabetes causes overweight, overweight potentially causes heart problems, stomach malfunction which in their turn cause exacerbation of diabetes.

    Diabetic Diets Fight against Obesity

    Diabetic Diets Fight against Obesity

    Diabetic diets are supposed to keep blood sugar level under control. It’s their major task. Having a normal level of blood sugar for a diabetic is vital because it helps ward off any future problems that can arise. Though, weight loss purpose is also important.

    So, first of all right diabetic diets suggest healthy nutrition, that contains a certain limited amount of sugar, carbohydrates and calories, and requires strict following to daily meal plan. All these factors have essential influence on body weight and on your fat mass as well.

    By the way, diabetic diets will be useful not only for diabetics, but for those overweight people who want to avoid having this disease.
