GOOD CHEERS... "¡SALUD!"

  1. The good news for red wine lovers is that it really can cut your blood pressure.
  2. The bad news is the alcohol has to be removed first.
  3. Drinking non-alcoholic red wine might not sound as much fun but for people at risk of heart problems it could be a lifesaver, it is claimed.
  4. A study shows for the first time that natural antioxidant compounds in red wine - not the alcohol - are good for your heart health.
  5. Researchers in Spain say the alcohol weakens the ability of red wine to cut blood pressure, effectively canceling out any benefits.
  6. They found that men at high risk for heart disease had lower blood pressure after drinking non-alcoholic red wine every day for four weeks.
  7. The researchers studied 67 men with diabetes or three or more cardiovascular risk factors who ate a common diet combined with different drinking habits.
  8. They were asked to drink either 10 ounces of red wine a day - the equivalent of a couple of glasses - the same amount of non-alcoholic red wine or about three ounces of gin (a couple of drinks).
  9. All of the men tried each combination of food and drink for four weeks.
  10. The red wine and non-alcoholic wine contained equal amounts of polyphenols, an antioxidant that decreases blood pressure.
  11. During the red wine phase, the men had very little reduction in blood pressure and there was no change while drinking gin.
  12. However, after drinking non-alcoholic red wine, blood pressure decreased, possibly reducing the risk of heart disease by 14 per cent and stroke by as much as 20 per cent.

SEX APPEAL!!!

Power, Confidence & 
Sex Appeal
By Yangki Christine Akiteng, Love Doctor
It's almost unnecessary to explain why some people are considered the sexiest people alive. Just look at them! Their sensuous appeal starts visually. Their very smooth and soft skin, perfect proportions, legs that are long and beautifully formed etc.
But what if I told you that only 20% of lasting sex appeal is about physical appearance and 20% about your intelligence. The remaining 60% is all about having a genuine masculine confidence or genuine feminine confidence.
People who have greater sexual appeal mostly have confidence in their masculinity and femininity. They have apparent effortlessness, eyes twinkling with good humour, an infectious smile, a greater appetite for life and greater confidence. "Here is a link if you are interested:

Matthew 6:5-14

English Standard Version (ESV)

The Lord's Prayer

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 

Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 

Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.

SELF PRESERVATION - Email Vicente@: peraltaprofitness@gmail.com


Preserving our most valuable asset -- the brain by Alan Titchenal, Ph.D., C.N.S. Living Longer & Smarter Brain researchers have estimated that there are more neurons in the human brain than there are stars in the galaxy. Among these brain cells, more than a million new connections form each day, allowing us to accomplish amazing things. A decline in brain function with age is common, but not inevitable. Brain research is progressing rapidly and showing that the brain is a “use it or lose it” organ like most other parts of the body. Keeping the brain active and well nourished may give us many more years of sharp brain function. Some Key Natural Compounds Support Brain Function Several substances are showing the potential to support brain function and to slow (and possibly stop or reverse) age-related decline in mental function. Among these substances, phosphatidylserine, acetyl-L-carnitine, alpha-lipoic acid, and vitamin B-12 are known to support function of the aging brain. Following the middle-age years, supplementation with these compounds may balance a decline in the body’s production or absorption of these substances that are essential for normal brain and neurological function. "Here Is A Link For The Right Supplements That Will Help You Preserve A Healthy Brain; Healthy And FIT BODY:

"Weight loss is possible for everyone as long as they move more than they eat." dotFIT experts


Answer: First we’d like to give you some general information on metabolism and how it works.

Metabolism is the rate at which the body uses energy to support all basic functions essential to sustain life, plus all energy requirements for additional activity and digestive processes. There are three components to energy expenditure (calories burned):

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR):  This is the amount of calories needed to run all essential functions and chemical reactions while in a resting and quiet state. RMR is the largest part of total metabolism and accounts for 65 - 75% of calories burned in a day.

Thermic Effect of Food (TEF):  This is the energy used by the body to digest and absorb the nutrients present in the food we eat. The rate of energy used for the TEF is about 10%, and can be increased depending on the composition of each meal.

Physical activity:  This is the amount of energy the body burns during daily activities such as exercise, recreation, work, housework, etc. Daily physical activities account for 20 - 40% of calories burned each day. This part will vary depending on the individual and how active they are each day. A sedentary person will require fewer calories to maintain weight than a busy worker in a construction site!

Lack of physical activity is one of the biggest reasons why people gain weight more easily now than they did in the past (think back 100 years), not a slow metabolism. In fact, differing metabolic rates between people of the same body composition is so minimal it’s nearly insignificant. And remember, the heavier you are, the more calories you burn.

More info
Everyone's body follows the laws of physics, including the Laws of Energy.  Therefore, because the Laws of Energy dictate that energy cannot be created or destroyed, humans must burn more energy than they consume to lose weight. Our programs assist those individuals who are trying to lose weight by educating them foremost on what it takes to succeed.  Weight loss is possible for everyone as long as they move more than they eat.

dotFIT will help you regardless of your age or metabolism.  While traditional weight loss programs focus on tedious calorie counting without accurate information about calories burned, dotFIT allows you to measure actual calories burned and consumed. Whether you use an energy tracking device or not, the dotFIT Me Program  gives you a calorie balance each and every day so you know without at doubt if you’re creating a deficit (and losing weight) or a surplus (and gaining weight). For the first time ever, you now have the information you need to manage your weight loss without guesswork. It's a wake-up call that makes weight loss success simple and virtually guarantees results.

We don't believe you need to be put on a restrictive diet or an unsustainable workout plan in order to succeed. The dotFIT Me Program gives you suggestions on how to slightly change your food intake and/or your activity level to meet your goals. If you are already on a program that you enjoy, the dotFIT Me Program can complement any diet or exercise program. All that matters is that you keep an average daily caloric deficit based on your goals.

SELF PRESERVATION BY, Vicente

Why do men and women deposit fat in different places?

Vicente dotFIT Certified 


Answer: Gender & hormonal differences play major roles in the different fat storage patterns of men and women. Some researchers believe the historical roles of men and women in hunter/gatherer societies may have influenced this. Men were typically the hunters, having to run after (or from) prey. Moving fat on the arms and legs would have a much higher metabolic cost (meaning it would have taken more energy), which would be problematic when food was scarce. This is the reason, the theory continues, for a more central, abdominal storage area in men. It is easier and less calorically "expensive" to move. Women, of course, store fat in breast and hip areas with the hips and legs accumulating much of the body fat during adult weight gain. From an evolutionary standpoint, breasts were necessary for successful reproduction and hips were designed to help carry offspring during pregnancy.


More info

As we age and hormone levels change, body fat may find new, preferential areas to settle. When weight gain continues, as it often does during a major portion of our adulthoods, fat often begins to accumulate intramuscularly and intra-abdominally (also known as visceral fat). An increase in “belly fat” is a sign of this and is considered a risk factor for heart disease and other metabolic diseases such as insulin resistance, high blood pressure, dyslipidemia and Type II diabetes. Because this fat lies buried within the body, it is not measured with devices such as calipers.

Many people believe that supplementation is not truly necessary when it comes to gaining and maintaining muscle mass.  I’ve heard plenty of times that supplements are “hype,” “unnecessary,” and “a waste of money.”  I have always felt that supplements are definitely beneficial; the challenge, however, was to find a trustworthy supplement line.  As an OCB figure competitor, it was of paramount importance to me that I use supplements which truly delivered on their promise to enhance performance, enhance muscle building, and enhance muscle maintenance.  
I began using dotFIT four years ago.  As required by the gym I was employed at, I had to become dotFIT certified.  At first, I thought, “Great-yet another bogus supplement line!”  I quickly learned, however, that dotFIT truly was the gold standard when it came to supplementation.  I began using the products and really enjoyed how they made me feel, but this competition season (2013), I truly put them to the test.

Cleanses – Do They Really Help?

by Gay Riley, MS, RD, CCN

Cleanses have recently become popular as a means to improve health and energy, rejuvenate the body, lose weight and slow aging. According to Spins research, between October 2008 and October 2009 Americans spent more than $100 million dollars on cleansing and detox products in an effort to lose weight, gain energy and purify themselves of harmful toxins. Unfortunately, scientific evidence showing any health benefits of cleansing has yet to be investigated, therefore the use of cleanses to treat illness is not totally embraced by the medical community. However, many complimentary alternative doctors and practitioners use cleanses and detoxification programs to support whole body health.

Cleanses typically involve some type of fasting or food elimination to let the organs “rest” and to flush “waste buildup” from the targeted organ.  They also may include herbal teas, enemas or colonics.  Physician Michael Picco at the Mayo Clinic warns of the dangers of fasting cleanses. “Fasting cleanses (abstaining from food) are not clinically proven and can cause extreme medical reactions or conditions. Your body may go into starvation mode and you may develop low blood sugar, anemia and dangerous electrolyte imbalances that can lead to cardiac arrest and coma.”  According to Geatano Morello, ND, who is a detox specialist and author of Whole Body Cleansing (2009), many popular cleanse regimes such as the master cleanse, a 10-20 day fast during which you subsist on a mix of lemon juice, maple syrup and water are so extreme that weight loss is nearly impossible to maintain once you go back to eating solid food.

The notion that fasting cleanses actually “clean” the body is more of a marketing ploy than sound science. The human body naturally expels toxins from the body via detoxification pathways in the gallbladder, liver, kidneys, digestive system, lungs and skin.  The gastrointestinal tract contains 70% of the body’s immune response and one of its major roles is to remove waste from the body. Currently, there is little research that waste build-up or constipation (straining to pass hard stools) causes cancer, health issues or disease.  However, it is widely believed in complimentary alternative and Ayurvedic medicine that 1-3 bowel movements a day is healthy and helps to expel metabolic wastes and toxins from being reabsorbed by the body. Some sources indicate that regular bowel movements range from 3 times a day to a few times weekly.  Therefore, the absence of a daily bowel movement is normal for many but may not necessarily be optimal.  Improving regularity can be accomplished by

  • Increasing intake of fiber rich foods (whole grains, beans and lentils, whole fruit and vegetables)
  • Exercising regularly
  • Drinking adequate fluids

Popular Cleanses

Olive Oil Liver Flush from Dr. Hulda’s book, The Cure for All Diseases. This cleanse promotes diarrhea with a potion of olive oil, grapefruit juice, Epsom salts and fresh water and the passing of gallstones by stimulating the gallbladder to contract. Dr. Hulda encourages refraining from medicines and food after 2 pm. This cleanse appears risky for high-risk medical conditions should stones become lodged or complications occur.

The Master Cleanse by Stanley Burroughs involves complete abstinence from food and the consumption of a “lemonade drink” which consists of pure water, fresh lemon juice, pure maple syrup for calories and minerals, and cayenne pepper to break up mucus.  Water with sea salt or Epsom salts is consumed in the morning and laxative tea is taken at night to flush the colon.  This cleanse is popular with celebrities for rapid weight loss.  It is extreme and not recommended.

Quantum Wellness 21 Day Cleanse by Kathy Freston is a sensible plan with solid foods and the integration of healthy habits for life.  Vegetarian eating is followed for 21 days along with elimination of alcohol, caffeine, sugar, gluten, and sugar.  Quantum wellness is a good reference for healthy living and the basic foundation of the cleanse program is not extreme on the body.

Herbal Cleanses -- Herbal formulas contain a variety of natural herbs designed to do more than eliminate the stress on the liver and colon. These herbal formulas use milk thistle, psyllium, licorice, peppermint, fennel and senna to help the liver produce bile and digest food. Herbs such as wormwood, black walnut and cloves help kill parasites. These formulas work best when consuming whole, unprocessed foods with moderate protein and high in fiber. These formulas should be done in moderation, as psyllium and senna in high quantities can be toxic.

The bottom line on cleanses is to avoid extreme protocols, especially if you have medical conditions, or you take medications that may be detrimental rather than beneficial to your health.  If you have high-risk medical conditions and want to cleanse, choose a doctor or health practitioner who understands integrative medicine (medicine that combines traditional care with alternative and natural approaches). In doing so, you ensure you have the most up-to-date and well-rounded advice. Cleansing should not be confused with detoxification although they are used interchangeably in the media.  Detoxification is much more involved in removing chemicals, alcohol, or heavy metals from the organ systems of the body such as dialysis or chelation therapy.  Detoxification programs are specifically designed to remove a particular  substance from the body and should be administered and monitored by an experienced healthcare professional.

What you can do
Adding any of the following strategies to your lifestyle is easy and healthy.

  1. Consume adequate calories and nutrient intake to prevent under-nutrition.
  2. Minimize added sugars such as soda and sugar-sweetened beverages.
  3. Eat a diet rich in fresh organic fruits and vegetables. These foods contain fiber, protective phytonutrients and vitamins and minerals.
  4. Consume plant oils and unprocessed nuts for anti-inflammatory oils and minerals.
  5. Eat adequate protein from high quality sources, fresh eggs, and vegetables. If you eat meat, choose sources that are humanly treated, free of hormones and antibiotics.
  6. For individuals with allergies, choose foods and supplements that are free of common food allergens such as gluten (from grains) and casein (from dairy). Eliminating these foods can improve energy and immune health in some people.
  7. Eliminate stimulants, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco products, modified food ingredients and chemicals.
  8. Drink adequate amounts of clean water free of contaminants.  For pure water consider a reverse osmosis filter system or RO water which can be found at many natural grocery and health food stores.
  9. Consume adequate fiber - 28 to 35 grams a day to promote proper bowel function and prevent constipation.
  10. Get enough restorative sleep (7.5 to 9 hours a night of sound sleep or stage 4 sleep is optimal)
  11. Make an effort to intake specific nutrients that have been found to support proper detoxification function, including epigallocatechin gallate from green tea, glucosinolates from cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and cabbage), resveratrol from grapes and peanut skins, isoflavones from soybeans or fermented soy, and polyphenols and anthocyanidins from berries.
  12. Try hot lemon water with cayenne pepper before breakfast to stimulate the liver.
  13. Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in fresh water for the kidneys.
  14. Exercise enough to sweat which will help open the pores to release toxins through the skin.
  15. Try hot yoga to stimulate circulation and sweating.
  16. Try body brushing and rebounding to stimulate lymph function for the immune system.

Summary
There is no such thing as a quick fix.  The safest cleanse is lifestyle.  By committing to a healthy diet, supporting your body’s natural detoxifying systems with food, supplements, and reducing exposure to toxic chemicals you can trim fat, boost energy and lessen your body’s toxic burden. Some of the basic fundamentals of cleansing listed above can be exercised on a regular basis to enhance the body’s natural detoxification pathways. In doing so, you create a lifestyle that promotes optimal health and longevity without the risk of extreme and potentially harmful fasting cleanses.
