11. Use smaller plates.

12. Bring your lunch to work at least three times a week.

13. Start to strength train twice a week as your fitness improves. Building muscle increases your metabolism and forces your body to use fat, not muscle, when you're cutting back on calories. Cut down on carbohydrates and stick to lean white meat and fish, and you will notice vast improvements here.

14. Stop eating while watching television.

15. Have someone else put away leftovers.

16. Buy a good low-fat, low-calorie cookbook or magazine subscription.

17. Try two new reduced-calorie recipes a month.

18. IMPORTANT - Eat breakfast daily. This suppresses the appetite for most of the day and provides fuel for the brain while at work or looking after the kids! You will feel better and have more energy all day if you eat a low fat cereal in the morning.

19. Don't read while eating.

20. Have a sweet treat once a week.

Practical Tips To Eliminate Toxins From Your Body

Practical Tips To Eliminate Toxins From Your Body

When it comes to removing toxins from your body, there are many options open to you. Some are more effective than others. Learn why and how you can dtox at the cellular level.

I know we breathe every minute of every day. This supplies oxygen to the blood and keeps us alive. As a trained breath therapist, I can tell you that by increasing the amount of air into your lungs, and breathing rhythmically, is a very effective toxin removal regime. Up to 78% of elimination occurs through the breath. There are many trained Breath Therapists these days, and I experienced a life changing experience when I first encountered this. This amazing process helped bring past thoughts and emotions to consciousness and clear them. I felt so much lighter afterwards. Something as simple as taking 10 or 20 deep breaths when you first awake can make a huge difference. It is quite an effective method of toxin removal.

I started taking cold showers every day some 20 years ago. This stimulates your lymphatic system and a rapid change from hot to cold temperature can really invigorate you removes toxins. If you have access to a gym, some have a plunge pool and steam room. You can get great energy by switching between these. A swim in the ocean is another great way to remove body toxins using water. More extreme methods are immersing yourself in really hot water where toxins eliminate through the skin, the largest organ in the body. One water detox method is to wrap a wet sheet around your body, then blankets and sweat out tons of toxic material. You get to smell all the toxic waste that comes out of the skin!

Apple Cider Vinegar is a great detox regime. Simply pour a liter in a steaming hot bath.A kg or 2 lbs of BiCarb does a similar job. Use the hottest water you can and then soak in it. Your skin will feel great!

While on the subject of water, be aware of what is in the water you use. Bottled water can often have the wrong stuff in it, and tap water in many towns shouldn't be drunk. Dr Norman Walker, centenarian and leader in colon cleansing, suggests that a continual intake of calcium from tap water may be a cause of arthritis! I use a wellness filter. There is a new model just out and it is fantastic. When you taste water filtered through volcanic rock, you will know why I love this filter.

Colon Cleansing
The colon is the method by which waste material is taken out of the body. If it is not functioning properly, the bowel walls will eventually weaken, leading to autointoxication whereby toxins pass back into the blood stream from the bowel. This eventually leads to serious disease. Using a good fiber product, and perhaps backing this up with Colonic Irrigations or Enemas will keep the colon working and clean. Herbal Fiberblend is the product I use and recommend for this. It is surprising how quickly many people feel more energy when their bowels are functioning correctly.

I do not necessarily recommend fasting as a way to detox the body. The reason for this is that when you fast, you may well increase movement of toxins, but if you don't drink huge quantities of water, you run the risk of concentrating those toxins in your body. I know a 24 or 48 hour fast can do wonders as it gives your body the chance to cleanse without the burden to dealing with toxic foods. If you must fast, I suggest you make sure you are in good health by having a check up with a health professional first, and then do a detox program at the same time.

EDTA chelation has been around since World War II to remove lead to which soldiers were exposed during the war. You ingest a chelating agent which attracts positively charged particle to it and then eliminates them. DMSA is a similar treatment for Mercury. The challenge is that these treatments are indiscriminate and attract vital minerals as well as heavy metals, requiring medical supervision and vitamin injections to avoid serious side effects. The other challenge is that the toxins are attached to the outside of the chelating agent, meaning they can do damage to the kidney or liver during elimination. One would have to question whether chelation does more harm than good. Still, for some it is essential. Activated

Liquid Zeolite
The challenge with most detox programs is that they don't reach the cells, where toxins are tightly held onto. As most of you know our bodies are made up of trillions of cells, and the health of each one contributes to our overall level of wellness. Toxins, particularly heavy metals and pesticides, which are on just about everything we eat, drink or breathe these days, attach themselves to cell receptors, restricting cells from taking up proper nutrition. Allergies in particular are often caused by irritation of weak cells by antigens, or foreign toxins. Removing the toxins can provide a permanent solution. Masking symptoms with medication can provide quick relief, but can lead to long term problems later. When you detox your cells become health and you feel more energetic and healthy.

This is where Activated Liquid Zeolite comes to the rescue. The beauty of Zeolite is that it has a cage like structure to trap toxins with its molecules and a negative charge to draw them from the cells. Better yet, unlike most other chelation agents, it has been proven to not affect blood serum or nutritional levels in the body. In fact tests of long term users demonstrate that after most of the toxins are removed, nutritional levels balance out to what they should be.

Detoxification is becoming an essential part of maintaining optimal health. We can no longer avoid toxins. We are being damaged by them every day. What we can do is take action to minimize exposure and get them out of the body before they do too much damage. It is important to remove toxins and heavy metals. In Activated Liquid Zeolite, we now have a safe, effective way to achieve this.


John Gaydon has been researching Natural Health for the last 25 years. Starting with Colon Cleansing, John believes that environmental toxins are a major cause of illness in our modern society.

Eat Less For A Healthy Weight Loss

Eat Less For A Healthy Weight Loss

Eat less for a healthy weight loss is a statement of fact and should be obvious to everybody but, strangely enough, many people still go on eating far too much food. Take notice of these healthy eating tips and you should be convinced you can reduce the food you eat, feel healthy and lose weight.

One of the first things to remember is that you can have a cup of tea or coffee without converting an ordinary tea break into a mini-meal. It's easily done! Almost as a reflex action many people will add biscuits or even a slice of pie with a cup of coffee; stop it, it's not necessary and is just comfort eating.

Most health professionals suggest that all adults will benefit from servings of at least five fresh fruit and vegetables every day. In fact, even the government is in on the act encouraging us all to go "five a day". Not surprising when they are crammed with vitamins, minerals and fiber. The reasons are perfectly valid as most vegetables and fruit are about 75% - 80% - 80% water which means you can eat as much as you want. The water content has a further advantage in that it keeps the body hydrated and helps to make you feel satisfied and will certainly assist in your quest to eat less for a healthy weight loss.

Another useful tip refers to how meals are presented. Many people use large oval plates or 12" dinner plates which look a bit empty unless they are completely filled. In reality, any meal of reasonable and adequate proportions will fit easily on a 9" plate. This same principle also applies to the sizes of cups and mugs for coffee and tea. There's no doubt the larger the container the more people will eat or drink. So beware, and cut down on the portions and eat less for a healthy weight loss.

Another useful tip to remember is the number of times each mouthful of food is chewed because digestion starts as soon as food enters the mouth. Chewing is an important part of food digestion as it helps the vital nutrients on their journey to the stomach. It will help to chew each mouthful of food around 25 times to make sure it is digested properly.

Water is a critical part of the formula in any plan for a healthy weight loss. So often when we feel as though we need something we go for a snack as a quick fix. In reality it may well be that a glass of water is required. Water is necessary to keep us hydrated and also helps with that feeling of fullness. In reality, most doctors recommend at least six glass of water each day.

Lastly, don't become addicted to certain snacks. Many addictions abound in modern life but an obsession with food is not usually one of them; although it should be. Most superstores have a plethora of attractive snack and soft drinks that often make the mouth water and are hard to resist. Many of these are remarkably addictive with their high salt and sugar content and are best avoided. If you want a snack, and there's nothing wrong in that, have some fruit and cereal bars; but read the label first.

Well, there you have it, six healthy eating tips that will ensure you eat less for a healthy weight loss.

What do you dare to dream?

Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When

people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thing

was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all

the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.

Anthony Robbins

Question of today is: What will you no longer accept in your life? 
Reach for the sky. Dream Big, Love Hard, Laugh Often and Live your life to the fullest.



By Alfred D. Souza

For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time to still be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time . and remember that time waits for no one.

So stop waiting
until you finish school,
until you go back to school,
until you lose ten pounds,
until you gain ten pounds,
until you have kids,
until your kids leave the house,
until you start work,
until you retire,
until you get married,
until you get divorced,
until Friday night,
until Sunday morning,
until you get a new car or home,
until your car or home is paid off,
until spring,
until summer,
until fall,
until winter,
until you are off welfare,
until the first or fifteenth,
until your song comes on,
until you've had a drink,
until you've sobered up,
until you die,
until you are born again
to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.


A good woman is proud of herself. She respects herself and others.

She is aware of who she is. She neither seeks definition from the person

she is with, nor does she expect them to read her mind.

She is quite capable of articulating her needs.

A good woman is hopeful.

She is strong enough to make all her dreams come true.

She knows love, therefore she gives love.

She recognizes that her love has great value and must be reciprocated.

If her love is taken for granted, it soon disappears.

A good woman has a dash of inspiration, a dabble of endurance.

She knows that she will, at times, have to inspire others to reach the

potential God gave them.

A good woman knows her past, understands her present

and moves toward the future.

A good woman knows God. She knows that with God the world is her

playground, but without God she will just be played.

A good woman does not live in fear of the future because of her past.

Instead, she understands that her life experiences are merely lessons, meant to bring her closer

to self knowledge and unconditional self love.

I am a good woman. Are you or Do you know a good woman?

A Smile costs nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,

and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it.

A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business,

and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,

and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,

for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
