Experimenting with Exercise — Restless Curiosity

The past two weeks were spent trying non-traditional workouts. I have been bouncing, twisting and flying through the air. I wanted to get a sense of difficulty for different movements that my body is not used to. A little personal fitness background: Typically, I attend a 5AM outdoor boot camp 3-4 times a week (shout […]

The Best Oblique Ab Exercises for Women — MTN NEWS

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a toned core? If you’re anything like us, it’s probably Jillian Michaels’s midsection or J.Lo’s crazy carved core. To get a core as sculpted as these fit AF celebs, it’s going to take more than crunchesand sit-ups—which only strengthen the rectus abdominis muscles (aka the washboard muscles). […]

Since the days of our fathers to this day we have been in great guilt, and on account of our iniquities we, our kings and our priests have been given into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity and to plunder and to [e]open shame, as it is this day. 8 But now for a brief moment grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us an escaped remnant and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and grant us a little reviving in our bondage. 9 For we are slaves; yet in our bondage our God has not forsaken us, but has extended lovingkindness to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us reviving to raise up the house of our God, to restore its ruins and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem. — propheticinspiration

There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and assure himself that there is good in his labor. Even this, I have seen, is from the hand of God. 25 For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him? 26 For to the person who pleases Him God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and collecting so that he may give to one who pleases God. This too is vanity and chasing after the wind. — propheticinspiration

2/12/19 The Bible states in Ecclesiastes 2-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB) The Futility of Pleasure and Possessions 2 I said [a]to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure. So [b]enjoy yourself.” And behold, it too was futility. 2 I said of laughter, “It is madness,” and of pleasure, “What does it accomplish?” […]

COCONUT OIL AND HEART ISSUES 2019)

I’M HESITANT TO SUGGEST COCONUT OIL FOR PEOPLE WITH HEART ISSUES BUT IM EVEN MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THE HIGHLY POPULAR COCONUT WATER-FOR ANYONE A TYPICAL 11 OUNCE SERVING OF COCONUT WATER HAS 12.5 GRAMS OF SUGAR,NEARLY ONE TABLESPOON WITHOUT ANY FIBER.THIS IS AKIN TO DRINKING APPLE JUICE INSTEAD OF EATING AN APPLE,WHICH IS FAR MORE SUGAR THAN I;D RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE.WHEN PATIENTS WITH DIABETES STARTED USING COCONUT WATER AS A SPORT DRINK DURING THEIR REGULAR WORKOUT ACTIVITIES,SUCH AS DURING A TENNIS MATCH THEY ALMOST IMMEDIATELY WENT FROM WELL CONTROLLED BLOOD SUGAR TO POORLY CONTROLLED-AND THE ONLY THING WAS A FEW SERVINGS OF COCONUT WATER DAILY.PLAIN WATER IS A MUCH  BETTER CHOICE.IF YOU CAN FIND UNSWEETENED COCONUT WATER WITHOUT SUGAR THAN THAT’ FINE SO ENJOY IT. MY RECOMMENDATIONS  IS THAT IF YOU ARE IN GOOD HEALTH OR,IF YOU HAVE NEUROLOGICAL ISSUES LIKE MEMORY LOSS AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE TRYING TO FOLLOW A KETO GENIC DIET,THEN IT IS LIKELY SMART TO EAT MORE COCONUT PRODUCTS.  HOWEVER,IF YOU HAVE ESTABLISHED HEART DISEASE OR ARE BEING TREATED BY YOUR DOCTOR FOR ABNORMAL CHOLESTEROL PROBLEMS.ID RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR,AVOID COCONUT OIL IN GENERAL AND ENJOY THE MANY OTHER HEART AND BRAIN FRIENDLY FATS. OTHER FATS TO CONSIDER BEYOUND COCONUT OIL WOULD BE AVACADO AND AVACADO OIL,NUTS AND NUT OILS.DARK CHOCOLATE.WILD COLD WATER FISH,AND OF COURSE OLIVES AND OLIVE OIL.INSTEAD OF PURE COCONUT OIL YOU ARE USING COCONUT PRODUCTS,USE COCONUT MILK AS WELL AS COCONUT FLOUR AND MEAT,AS THEY PROVIDE FIBER,FLAVONOIDS,AND OTHER VITAMIN AND MINERALS..I REMAIN ENTHUSIASTIC THAT SOMEDAY COCONUT PRODUCTS WILL BE SHOWN TO HAVE CLINICAL BENEFITS,WHICH IS WHY DESPITE THE LACK OF PROVEN BENEFITS YOU’LL  NOTICE THAT I USE COCONUT FLOUR AND COCONUT MILK IN SEVERAL OF MY RECIPES.AN OVERNIGHT FAST WITH NOTHING TO EAT AFTER SEVEN TO EIGHT PM. A COUPLE OF DAYS A WEEK SEEM THE ESIEST TYPE OF PARTIAL  INTERMITTENT FASTING TO TRY FIRST,ALLOWING YOU SOME FORM OF FAT,IN PARTICULAR WITH YOUR COFFEE OR TEA FOR BREAKFAST,TO SUPPRESS BINGES.THE EVENING BEFORE YOUR PARTIAL FAST EAT A BIG SALAD,EXTRA VEGETABLES,OR BEAN VEGETABLE SOUP TO HELP INDUCE MORE ALKALINE STATE. DONT EAT ANYTHING ELSE UNTIL NOON.DESPITE THE POTENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF PARTIAL INTERMITTENT FASTING I HAVE DESIGNATED IS A STEP 3 OF MY FOOD PLAN FOR SEVERAL REASONS.IT IS HARDER TO FOLLOW THAT ADDING FOOD THAT IS PROVEN TO ENHANCE BRAIN FUNCTION,THINGS LIKE DARK CHOCOLATE,BERIES, GREENS, COFEE TEA,IN MODERATION AND RED WINE, AS IN STEP ONE,AND  MORE DIFFICULT THAN CHOOSING FOOD THAT HAVE A LOW SUGAR LOAD,IN STEP 2.SECOND THE LIMITATIONS ARE THAT WE DON,T KNOW IF THIS TYPE OF FASTING INTERVENTION WILL WORK OVER THE LONG TERM. AS IN YEARS,OR FOR JUST THE THIRTY TO NINETY DAYS THAT HAVE BEEN STUDIED TO DATE.FURTHERMORE WE DONT KNOW WHICH TYPE OF INTERMITTENT FASTING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE,ALTHOUGH THE  INITIAL DATA SUGGEST THAT THEY ALL WORK.FINALLY,ALTHOUGH INTERMITTENT FASTING AND ADDING M,C.T. OIL TO GENERATE AN ELEVATION IN KETONES HAS BEEN SHOWN TO HELP PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA AND MILD COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT OVER THE SHORT TERM,WE SIMPLY DON,T KNOW IF THEY HELP PEOPLE WHO  ARE RELATIVELY HEALTHY WITH NORMAL BRAIN FUNCTION- THOSE OF YOU TRYING TO OPTIMIZE YOUR CURRENT BRAIN FUNCTION AND PREVENT FUTURE MEMORY LOSS.WEIGH THE FASTING OPTIONS AS WELL AS THE MCT OIL ALL OF WHICH WILL IMPROVE YOUR BLOOD SUGAR AND INSULIN CONTROL.AND TRY SOME OF YOUR OWN BRAIN BOOSTING FOODS LIKE TUMERIC POWDER. FLAX SEED BREAD BAKED IN FLAXSEED CURES CANCER TOO. AND CHIA SEEDS ALL HAVE FIBER..AT LEAST 85% OF ALL AMERICANS HAVE MAJOR NUTRIENT DEFIENENCIES THAT ADVERSELY IMPACT THEIR HEALTH IN A VARIETY OF WAYS,INCLUDING ACCELERATED COGNITIVE DECLINE..THIS SEEMS SHOCKING IN A COUNTRY WHERE NUTRITION FOOD IS PLENTIFUL,BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE STANDARD AMERICAN DIET-THAT MOST MEN,WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE CONSUMING.EVERYONE NEEDS A PERSONALIZED PLAN TO MEET THEIR KEY NUTRIENT NEEDS.AND IDEALLY THEY WOULD DO IT WITH FOOD.BUT IN REALITY,AND CERTAINLY AFTER SEEING THOUSANDS OF PATIENTS OVER THIRTY YEARS AS  A PHYSICIAN.I HAVE YET TO MEET A PERSON WHO EATS WELL ALL THE TIME.FURTHERMORE,NUTRIENT CONTENT IN FOOD HAS DECREASED SUBSTANTIALLY OVER THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES,AS PROCESSED FOOD HAS CROWDED OUR REAL FOOD EVEN WHOLE FOODS.-FRUITS, VEGETABLES,ARE WHOLE GRAINS HAVE BEEN DIMINISHED NUTRITIONALLY THROUGH INDUSTRIAL FARMING.THE USE OF PESTICIDES,AND OTHER PRACTICES. COMPOUNDED ALL THE TOXINS IN OUR ENVIROMENT TODAY WE NEED EXTRA  NUTRIENTS CERTAINLY NOT FEWER TO DETOXIFY AND REMOVE THESE CHEMICALS FROM OUR TISSUES.ADDING VITAMINS,MINERALS AND OTHER SOLUBLE NUTRIENT THERAPIES CAN ONLY ENHANCE HEALTHY EATING PLANS.THEY WONT REPLACE IT.SUPPLEMENTS WILL NEVER MAKE UP FOR EATING JUNK FOOD,SKIPPING A WORKOUT,BEING STRESSED OUT OR GETTING POISONED BY TOXINS LIKE PESTICIDES OR HYDROGENATED FATS.EATING WELL ESPECIALLY CHOOSING BRAIN BOOSTING FOODS AND REDUCING YOUR SUGAR LOAD-SHOULD BE A PRIORITY IF YOU WANT TO CORRECT ANT DEFICIENCIES.ITS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THE LIMITATIONS OF THE EFFECT OF  ONE NUTRIENT.OR A SINGLE COMPOUND AT A TIME ON COGNITION THAT ISNT HOW MOTHER NATURE WORKS.TYPICALLY DOZEN OR HUNDREDS OF NUTRIENTS AND COMPOUNDS INTERACT TO ENHANCE  PHYSIOLOGICAL FUNCTION. ONE AGENT ON ITS OWN OFTEN WILL NOT WORK AS WELL AS  SEVERAL COMPOUNDS USED TOGETHER.THAT,S IS WHY MANY SUPPLEMENT COMPOUNDS SOLD WITH CLAIMS TO SUPPORT BRAIN FUNCTION USE ANYWHERE FROM FIVE TO TWENTY INGREDIENTS AT THE SAME TIME.THOUGH MOST STUDIES EVALUATE THESE COMPOUNDS ONE AT A TIME.THE REALITY IS THAT THOSE COMBINATION ARE RARELY IF EVER TESTED TOGETHER.THEIR MANUFACTORERS CANT CLAIM THAT A MULTI INGREDIENT COMPOUND WILL PREVENT MEMORY LOSS OR IMPROVE COGNITIVE FUNCTION BECAUSE SUCH A CLAIM WOULD HAVE TO BE SUBSTANTIATED WITH RESEARCH.IN COMPLEX AND SOPHISTICATED STUDIES THAT WOULD COST MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.INSTEAD MANUFACTURERS TYPICALLY RELY UPON A VAQUE STATEMENT THAT DOES’NT REQUIRE RESEARCH,LIKE THIS PRODUCT SUPPORTS HEALTHY  BRAIN FUNCTION. FOR EXAMPLE OF A PRODUCT THAT HAS CROSSED THE LINE IN TERMS OF CLAIMS AND RESEARCH.THE PROBLEM WITH PRAGEN WITH THE LIMITATION IN MIND HERE ARE KEY NUTRIENTS NOT COMPOUNDS WITH MULTITUDE OF AGENTS-THAT WE KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT ARE ESSENTIAL FOR PREVENTING MEMORY LOSS..THESE NUTRIENTS ARE NECCESARY FOR OPTIMAL COGNITIVE FUNCTION AND STRONG EVIDENCE SUPPORTS THAT USE SOME OF THESE NUTRIENTS CAN BE FOUND IN FOOD BUT IF THAT ISNT REALISTIC BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF THAT FOOD YOU,D HAVE TO EAT IN ONE DAY)SUPPLEMENT OPTIONS.VITAMIN D.VITAMIN B12.MIXED FOLIATES B9.CHROMIUM.LONG CHAIN OMEGA 3,S PROBIOTIC SOURCE.AND MAGNESIUM.VITAMIN D. IS A FAT SOLUBLE VITAMIN,BUT ONCE CONVERTED TO ITS ACTIVE FORM,ITS FUNCTIONS LIKE A HORMONE.NEARLY EVERY CELL IN YOUR BODY HAS A VITAMIN C RECEPTOR AND VITAMIN D. MODIFIES HOW YOUR CELLS FUNCTION.FOR THE LAST 100,000 YEARS HUMANS HAVE OBTAINED VITAMIN D FROM SUNLIGHT.THE SUN STIMULATES VITAMIND PRODUCTION WHEN A FORM OF ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT REACTS WITH A COLESTEROL MOLECULE IN THE BLOOD.EARLY HUMANS,THEIR SKIN EXPOSED WITH LIMITED CLOTHING. SPENT 12 TO SIXTEEN HOURS DAILY HUNTING AND GATHERING IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT.TODAY,OF COURSE MOST PEOPLE WEAR CLOTHING INDOORS MOST OF THE TIME AND FOR SIX MONTHS OF THE YEAR(LATE FALL-WINTER AND EARLY SPRING).PEOPLE LIVING NORTH OF SANTABARBARA,DALLAS,AND ATLANTA DONT MAKE ANY SIGNIFICANT VITAMIN D.AND WHEN WE GO OUT IN THE SUN,WEARING SUNSCREEN,WHICH IS ESSENTIAL FOR GAURDING AGAINST SKIN CANCER,BLOCKS THE SKIN FROM MAKING VITAMIN D.
