🗣BPA is a known endocrine disruptor, which means it mimics estrogen within the body, disrupting hormones, raising blood pressure, causing asthma, obesity and increasing the likelihood of developing breast and prostate cancer ⚠️
Whilst BPA was once thought to build up in your body overtime, recent studies suggest that drinking from a BPA-lined can had a rise in BPA levels in their urine within just 2 (!!!) hours ‼️
An even more recent study cited by Dr Rhonda Patrick (@foundmyfitness) just yesterday showed that urine samples taken from people included BPA levels up to 44% higher than the measurements used by the FDA and other regulating agencies. Meaning we, as an entire global population have MASSIVELY been underestimating our exposure to the chemicals 🤯
When you consider how much cancer rates have increased over the last decades, and you look at how much plastic we have EVERYWHERE, it’s really worth looking at these small lifestyle choices and making changes where we are able to, such as:
✔️Avoiding plastic bottles, buy a reusable glass one instead!
✔️Ditch the fizzy drinks and canned beverages, the aluminium cans contain levels of BPA which may leech into your drinks
✔️Avoid canned foods where necessary (ie. canned soups, beans etc) and opt for cardboard packaging or home-made produce instead
✔️Ditch the plastic microwavable containers and replace with glass jars, containers and food storage
✔️Limit your exposure to the ink found on receipts, movie tickets, and any receipts printed on thermal paper as these are often lined with BPA and are absorbed through contact
Even just small changes such as changing your water bottle and cutting out tinned and canned produce will help reduce the exposure to BPA you’re receiving, so make a small change today and take your health back into your own hands!! What are your thoughts?! 🤔

👏Pistachios. Pistachio nuts appear to have beneficial effects on heart disease risk factors when eaten in high quantities of more than one ounce (28 grams) per day.⠀
👉Walnuts. Walnuts are a great source of the omega-3 fat ALA and many other nutrients. Eating walnuts may benefit heart health and potentially even your brain⠀
👌Cashews. Cashews contain a number of important nutrients and studies indicate that they may improve blood lipid levels and reduce blood pressure.⠀
😉Pecans. Pecans contain a variety of beneficial nutrients. They also pack antioxidants and may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol.⠀

DO WE DRINK ALCOHOL? ⬇️ Ps. Check out our last post to enter into our 5K GIVEAWAY🌟
We get asked this question pretty frequently and the short answer is YES
We absolutely think alcohol can be a part of a healthy lifestyle, but it’s important to develop habits around drinking that are sustainable for you.
Here are some of the loose guidelines we follow:
🍷 We typically stick to drinking only on the weekends. This is more for mental clarity than anything else and we just function better without alcohol most days
🍷 We drink no more than 2-4 drinks a night and consume water in between drinks
🍷 We like to drink at least one glass of water before going to bed and also make sure to have water by our bedside for when we wake up parched
🍷 We like to eat something hearty before kicking back the booze (oats, quinoa, sweet potatoes). Drinking on an empty stomach causes you to feel terrible and also make poor eating choices when you get hungry
🍷 As with most things, we don’t like to restrict ourselves but rather focus on consuming in light moderation. We like to kick back and have fun with our friends, but also prefer to not wake up at noon with a hangover most day... You feel us!?!?
Do you agree with these tips? How does alcohol fit into your healthy lifestyle?

Don’t waste time on all the false nutritional information available online! 👎
✅Follow @the.perfectdiet for certified diet info!✅
Protein is the most crucial macronutrient and is crucial to achieving your fitness goals, no matter when trying to lose fat or gain muscle. The recommended amount of protein for any diet is 0.8 - 1.2g/lbs. bodyweight, because without enough protein, your muscles cannot recover and grow at its maximum potential.
Above I listed great protein sources, no matter if you’re a meat lover, vegetarian or prefer adding supplements into your diet.
Hopefully consuming sufficient protein will seem easier now.

Week 3 progress update 💪🏼
I really want to do better on tracking my progress, so here we are! 🙌🏼
This week was a tough one. Usually is after a holiday so I’m not going to beat myself up over it! It was also that oh so wonderful time of the month for me so my emotions were all over the place making it hard to stay focused and of course the bloating makes everything so much better 🙃
But other than that I feel like I still made progress. I’m doing this program for a second time and I’m not taking as many breaks and I’m increasing my weights! This is the toughest program we have so I’m really proud that I’m still showing up everyday wanting to get my ass kicked 😂
My main goal for this week is to handle my cravings better! I will be preparing for them by meal prepping my lunches, snacks, and having a plan for dinner! 😋 .
We all have different things we need to work on. So it’s important to figure out where you struggle and prepare for it! When you plan your meals ahead of time you’ll be less likely to give in to those unhealthy quick fix cravings! .
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Take some time today to plan ahead and I can bet my bottom dollar you will have a more successful week! YOU GOT THIS!! 💕💪🏼
Guys, ini dia fakta bahwa cas Hp di mobil tidak berbahaya loh : "Cas di mobil tidak buat baterai rusak"
Proses cas HP di mobil dengan mengalirkan listrik dari aki -> lighter -> baterai HP. Aliran listrik di mobil tidak hanya menuju lighter, tapi juga perangkat elektronik yang ada di mobil seperti klakson, AC, DVD player, radio, lampu, dll. Arus yang mengalir tidak akan membuat baterai rusak, atau meledak selama kelistrikan di mobil terawat dengan baik.
Tapi, ada resiko nya tetap ada loh kalo kalian sering cas hp di mobil :
- Untuk mobil modern
Daya tahan baterai akan menurun karena tidak stabilnya arus listrik dari lighter. Untuk mobil modern, udah ada batasan naik-turunnya tegangan listrik termasuk lighter. Jadi, resiko penurunan daya tahan baterai cenderung kecil.
. - Untuk mobil lama
Untuk mobil tipe lama yang sistem pengisian arusnya masih cut-out, kemungkinan akan overcharge. Jika overcharge, maka akan buat baterai cepat panas dan bisa meledak. Tapi kalo cut-out nya masih bagus, overcharge gak akan terjadi.
Kalo terjadi, pasti ada tanda" seperti HP kita terasa sangat panas / muncul bau gosong. Jika salah satu hal ini terjadi, segera lepas charger, matikan mesin mobil, dan pergi ke bengkel. Karena bukan cuma HP aja, tapi Aki dan cut-out juga bisa rusak.

- Si pueden, eviten que tenga queso crema
- Pidan los rollos con más verduras!
- De salsas traten de solo usar la de Soya baja en sal, y eviten las demás (tampico, anguila, etc.)
- De preferencia comerlo en la tarde, donde todavía estarán activos y no en la noche antes de acostarse 😉
Cada vez es tan agradable ver como las personas van incorporando el "boom fitness" a su vida, todo por salud.
Hay quienes saltan de la cama directo a entrenar y a otros nos atrapan las sábanas. Unos se activan cuando el sol se oculta y otros prefieren descansar.
Cada persona es diferente y es el primer factor para resolver el dilema de
¿Cuál es el mejor momento para entrenar?
El ritmo cardíaco 💓es una de las variables que va a determinar cuando una persona se siente mejor para salir a entrenar. El ritmo biológico influye en la presión de la sangre, temperatura corporal, nivel de hormonas y el rc para cuando el cuerpo se prepara para entrenar.
🌻Hay bastantes estudios que dicen que entrenar a última hora de la tarde es el mejor momento para la gente, esto a causa de la temperatura de los músculos que llega a su pico a estas horas aunque también se puede conseguir este efecto por la mañana a primera hr si se realiza un calentamiento previo al ejercicio.
🌞El entrenamiento matutino tienes grandes efectos en la persona lo que ya mencioné arriba ⬆️, hace que tengas más energía a lo largo del día, tu estado anímico mejora bastante debido a las endorfinas liberadas y al caer la noche la calidad del sueño es sorprendente.
🌛El entrenamiento a última hr de la tarde, se ve favorecido porque los músculos están listos para entrenar tienen la 🌡️temperatura ideal y eso evita lesiones aparte que tiene toooda la noche para descansar y recuperarse.
🌟Pero no hay en Sí un estudio que diga esto es mejor y esto es peor, el entrenar a una hr del día lo va a decidir la persona como se acople mejor a su rutina diaria (trabajo, estrés, hábitos alimenticios, calidad de sueño). Lo mejor es tomar las medidas necesarias para tener un entrenamiento de 10 calentar adecuadamente, recuperarse correctamente y tener una alimentación adecuada.

You'll just need one good pan. I use my cast iron which is quality made and sealed. Invest in quality cooking ware! I avoid non stick pans and anything to
do with aluminium + foil for me it's not worth the risk.

🙉Ya empezaron la posadas y decidí🙊 portarme bien para no verme como tamal mal amarrado en Navidad! 🐷🌲
Para que me sigan y estén atentos a los tips que voy a compartir 👉🏻@healthybynadia 👈🏻
I have a phobia for crowds. It is the only reason why I never attend crowded events but I broke that jinx yesterday. After the last lagos NBC trade fair, @afrovirtues and @freesiafoodies said to me: why weren't you at the NBC trade fair? You must be at the next one. People need to hear about you because people are suffering and dying everyday. I said I will think about it. Madam Freesia said: "no you will not think about it, you will do it. -
Then @naijabrandchick decided to do abuja and I decided to go for it. It didn't make any sense honestly. 3 fairs in lagos and I didn't go for one but I went all the way to Abuja. Like who does that really? -
I have never struggled to pay salaries but the month of November was a tough one. In fact, one of my staff said to me: you can delay my salary. Let us finish this fair first. I said ok but my conscience wouldn't rest. How will I hold back her sweat? I paid salaries and there was nothing again. God has given me wonderful people to work with. Looking back now, I know it can only be God.
The devil tried oooo. The silly devil tried. I questioned the logicality of what I was doing. At some point, I said I will let go but I kept remembering what afrovirtues and Freesia told me about people needing me. That was my motivation and as if that was not enough, I had some very emotional consultations sessions in the month of November that really showed me that people needed help. One was that of a particular woman who said she had sold all her property to keep up with hospital bills and drugs bills. That was the height for me. -
The testimonies I heard yesterday were loud. I couldn't believe my ears. Ailments that doctors had given up on being healed with nature. I wept when I got home and relieved all the events of the day. It was just too much. My stand wasn't even in a crowded place but God showed up. - @ujumilimili@eonfoods@semspicesandtea@harelafabricsng@megdinjo words can't express my gratitude. The love and support was overwhelming. -
I did it despite my fears. I just thought of the people that needed help. People who were tired of being on pills for life. People who needed to break free from that bondage.
Holiday Season is upon us and we often get overwhelmed with how much we need to do before to make sure it's perfect! .
But... Does it really matter? .
When I asked my daughter what is your favorite part of the holidays? .
Her response, spending time with family, time together, giving and creating for others, the last part of course is gifts 🎁 .
Yet... We spend tons of time on the opposite... Making it "PERFECT" while stressing ourselves, not making time for ourselves, and running like a chicken... .
Here's what I learned...
Pull out a calendar and mark down what you will be doing. This helps put it in perspective and seeing things from a helicopter view. .
2- HAVE FUN WITH YOUR KIDS
Do activities you love as a family, like... Skating, crafts, baking, games. They want you more than a gift. .
3- STICK TO A ROUTINE
Yes! This helps it only fuel your battery each day but you are more balance, reduces stress and you can give more to others. When your phone is about to die... Does it keep going??? .
4- MEAL PLAN/PREP
But... I have no time!?!? Excuse. In today's world you can order your food. Have it catered. Or better yet! Have your kids get involved! Trust me best way to bond and learn about nutrition. This not only saves you time! It's saves you money and.... Helps you stay healthy and truly enjoy the food treats when your at events. What I have been doing for 4 yrs. .
5- JOIN A COMMUNITY
Being surrounded with like minded people helps you stick to your goals, be more positive, and no more "New year's resolutions" because health is everyday. Have a sidekick beside you helping you guide along the way.
Need extra help? 🙋
I hear ya! My O Healthy Me! O Fitness Me! Group just started and I am here to welcome you and challenge you this December. Opening the doors for you because I know how it can be. But I'm also here to say... I did it 4 yrs ago during Christmas and we even traveled, I lost weight, ate treats, yes wine! And FELT TRULY Happy, confident in my skin! As well as wearing that red lipstick! Message me to start today! Not January.

⭐️ Paleo Diet Benefits ⭐️
Since last year, I started a Paleo diet which involves eating mainly high protein and whole, non-processed foods like lean, grass-fed meat, fish, eggs, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables while limiting dairy, legumes, sugar, soy, gluten, and anything artificial or processed. I’ve never been a fan of fad diets or anything overly restrictive but with all the different advice out there, I think the Paleo Diet is a healthy, simple and sustainable way to maintain good nutrition and a lean physique. I’ve found that it’s not only made it easier to cut fat but it’s also had a bunch of other benefits. Every time you change your eating habits it takes a little while to get used to but going Paleo still involves a broad range of foods so I was personally able to adjust to it pretty quickly. Below are just some of the positives since I’ve started. Feel free to DM with any questions⬇️
⭐️ Improved gut health & digestion / less bloating
⭐️ Increased energy levels
⭐️ Improved mood and anxiety levels
⭐️ Less overeating & cravings
⭐️ Clearer skin / healthier hair
⭐️ Improved focus / mental clarity
⭐️ Better sleep
FAIL TO PLAN, PREPARE TO FAIL ⠀
I have learned that the weeks I see best results and feel more in control are those I plan and prepare in advance. ⠀
Preparing a meal plan, a grocery list, go grocery shopping 🛒 meal prep, plan my workouts, leave my workout clothes ready the day before, have my blender clean and ready to make my shake. All those things helps me succeed. ⠀
Sundays are the perfect day to plan and prepare ahead. ⠀
Set yourself for success‼️ ⠀

Yes you heard it right!
No Fats, No Carbs will make you fat until you are having them in moderation and looking after the calories it gives you. Whenever your lifestyle goes over calories, you tend to gain weight. And if you are under calories you shed weights.
So i would say the health is just not determined by the shape you are having.
You can’t consider a person is fit if he/she is skinny.
So ultimately you need to focus on real foods. More organic and less processed, that’s the real fitness phenomenon but it doesn’t really relates to weight.
Because there have been so many people out there eating clean still over weight.

Overeating is a problem almost everyone faces at one point or another, and an unexpected binge can feel incredibly frustrating. Even worse, it can cause your motivation and morale to tank, sometimes leading to an endless cycle that can completely derail your progress. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Incorporating a few healthy habits into your routine can help you persevere. We will give you 6 tips to get back on track after an unplanned binge.⠀
🔺Don’t panic! It’s not a crime to indulge. You’re only human, after all. So if you’re feeling bloated, and mad at yourself for overdoing it, just stop. Dwelling on your binge will only make you more upset, which could lead to emotional bouts of overeating down the road. Moving past the guilt is the first step toward getting back on track.⠀
🔺Stay hydrated. Staying hydrated supports a healthy metabolism, making recovery more manageable for the body. Drink a large glass before bed and a few large glasses the next morning. It’s also advisable to keep a water bottle by your side over the next two days. Doing so will help flush out any excess salt that’s making you bloated.⠀
🔺Go for a workout. Exercising after a binge can help you get back on track. It may influence hormones that affect hunger and can improve your mood. Develop a regular exercise routine to help prevent yourself from binge eating in the future.⠀
🔺Fill up on veggies.Get back on track after a binge by filling up on vegetables. They’re high in fiber and may help promote weight loss and feelings of fullness.⠀
🔺Sleep it off. Sleep deprivation has been associated with increased food intake. It may also alter levels of hormones that influence hunger. Aim to get seven to nine hours of sleep per night.⠀
🔺Avoid skipping meals. Skipping meals may increase hunger and appetite, leading to a higher risk of overeating. Adhering to a regular eating pattern may be associated with less binge eating.

Your body contains about 60% of water - which...
You are constantly losing via urine and sweat. (shocker)
Logically, you need to drink enough water. Enough means more than you lose during the night (around 1.5l) and during the day.
The amount varies from person to person, so instead of putting up a formula, it's easy to start with hitting 3+ liters a day. You can cross check it with the urine chart I posted a few days ago.
For business hydration through the day means having higher energy levels and helping your brain to function properly.
Also for business - Being hydrate also helps fighting bad breath (your prospects and customers hate it).
For the body, hydration has an effect on your weight loss. Drinking enough can suppress your appetite. How would you feel losing weight effortlessly just by drinking water?
Implementation - Once you get up, hydrate yourself with 0.5 liters of water. For the taste, add 1/2 lemon.
To keep yourself accountable, set up a reminder to drink water every hour and place the water at the place you stay the most. For me, it's just on the right side of my desk.

Most people think of red meat when they think or getting iron from their food.
While red meat is an excellent source of heme iron, I am here to tell you that there are many other sources of this mineral from plant-based foods.
Iron is an important mineral that makes up hemoglobin which is essential for oxygen transport in the blood.
Women have higher needs of iron compared to men due to menstruation and therefore are more at risk for anemia. Low iron levels can also lead to weakness, fatigue, headaches, pale skin and nail beds.
There are two types of iron one can obtain from the diet: non-heme and heme iron.
Non-heme iron is found predominately in plant based foods such as dark leafy greens, beans, and seeds, while heme iron is found solely in animal products.
It is true that heme iron is more readily absorbed by the human digestive tract than its non-heme counterpart.
This is due to the high level of phytates found in plants which bind to several minerals (not just iron), preventing there absorption. In addition, consumption of calcium rich foods inhibits iron absorption in the small intestine.
Sounds like we should be eating a lot of heme iron, right? Well, you can get a lot more non-heme iron out of your plants by soaking beans and cooking your greens and beans which greatly cuts down on the inhibitory phytic acid levels in your food.
Additionally, synergistically pairing non-heme iron foods with citrus, such as squeezing fresh lemon on a spinach salad, greatly increases bio-availability of non-heme iron. Further, consuming both heme and non-heme iron in meals can greatly enhance non-heme absorption.
Remember, minerals are resistant to heat, so cooking your veggies will not destroy the iron content. Vitamins and phytochemicals (such as polyphenols) on the other hand ARE heat sensitive and will degrade the more you cook them. Therefore, try steaming your vegetables for a win-win situation
These chocolate covered rice cakes are often purchased as a ‘healthy’ alternative to chocolate. I see this often working with client who restrict chocolate because they label it as “bad”
Is there an alternative to chocolate? ⠀ ⠀
The truth is, ONLY chocolate will satisfy your chocolate cravings, and it is important to acknowledge that! When we don’t, we often consume twice as much later!
The main message here is to avoid trying to replace foods with “healthier” options. All foods CAN fit into a balanced diet! ⠀
If you are looking for a delicious chocolate combo, I highly recommend chocolate and raspberries together!
The raspberries are a more nutrient dense carbohydrate choice than puffed rice. Add some chocolate chips and you’ve got a delicious and nutritious option.
The chocolate covered rice cakes shown above cost $53.30 per kg vs raspberries for $38-$40 (if bought fresh). Make your own chocolate combo and save your pennies 💰! Prices will very depending on where you live. ⠀
40 g CHOCOLATE COVERED MINI RICE CAKES
➩ Marketed as wholegrain rice cakes, gluten free and all natural.
✘ Calorie dense and nutrient poor
✘ Low fibre, will leave you wanting more (you’ll end up eating the chocolate you were avoiding)
100 g RASPBERRIES + 10 g CHOCOLATE CHIPS
➩ Still gluten free, real fruit, provides a good source fibre!
✔Nutrient dense, low calorie
✔Large volume, will keep you feeling full and satisfied
If you enjoy chocolate covered rice cakes instead of chocolate, then by all means continue with selecting them, BUT if your only picking them because they are supposedly ‘healthy’ and aren’t actually enjoying them as much as you would chocolate, then stop. ⠀ ——
