“Energy Energy Energy! (or lethargy?)”

Today I went to a funeral, and it was absolutely so sad. My oldest friend’s mother, but that’s a story for another time, what I want to share today is this…

person-1245959_1920

At the end of the ceremony we went for something to eat and there weren’t many options where we were so I had to choose wisely because I’m very strict about what I eat, particularly at the moment.

 

So, say you go to a workman’s café for example, or just a café that doesn’t really sell the greatest of food… What should you choose if you want to retain your hard earned well deserved health, vitality & energy levels?

 

The people I was with (family and friends), they chose certain things and I chose certain things. Now straight after they had eaten what came over them? Tiredness, lethargy and some of them felt that pretty much straight away.

 

Myself? I was actually boosted up and had energy for hours later… especially when they were dozing off and I was rolling around with my son playing with him and just really wanted to inject some love and fun into my day.

 

Point being, the story is what you choose to eat is essential and this is linked to the number one thing I’ve learnt this year – Only Allow Quality Fats into Your Body.

 

For instance, my Mum was saying ‘oh I’ve had grilled bacon and I’ve had eggs’ which is not so bad. But the devil is in the detail. For my eggs I ask for no oil and to put them on the hot plate or poach them.

 

So my mum had them fried, (most likely in vegetable oil) and she felt tired afterwards, and she said ‘oh but they were eggs that isn’t that bad’ but they were deep fried in, we actually don’t know what oil but I guess it wasn’t virgin olive oil or butter or virgin coconut oil.

 

So what did I have? What was the good choice?

 

I made sure that there was no oil added, I did ask them what butter they used so I didn’t get any of that because it was margarine (which is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT to butter). I had bacon on the griddle (maybe not the wisest choice but one of the only better choices) I had eggs on the griddle, grilled tomato’s, a few mushrooms and a salad. And that did me. I was good, my energy was good and it was a good food choice in a damaging situation.

 

It’s down to your choice. Do you want more energy? Do you want more vitality? It really does matter, one meal can make all the difference and it can dip your energy.

 

Or do you want to be vital? Do you want to feel full of energy and feel great and just have better conversations and enjoy yourself more?

 

If I said to you, I’ll give you this fried chicken or I’ll give you this cigarette what would you choose?

 

You probably think ‘well I’ll eat the fried chicken it’s not going to be that bad’. But actually the studies show that fried chicken will cause more damage for longer periods of time than smoking that cigarette!!. And who wants to smoke a cigarette these days, really? Not a good idea. And the fried chicken is a worse idea!

 

So think about that. It’s like a bruise. If I kicked you in the shin right now and you bruised, no matter what you did, no matter how good you ate, no matter how early you went to bed, it wouldn’t heal straight away. It would take time for that bruise to go away. That’s exactly the same as what you do when you make a bad food choice.

 

Keep the bad fats out. Any fats that are deep-fried or de-natured in any way. Keep away from vegetable oils. Look at the food you’re eating, if it has omega 6’s in it, if it has any other fats in it than the top 6 don’t eat it.

 

It’s that simple. Police that like your life depended on it. Because it does.

First the quality of your life. Then your actual life expectancy.

‘6 MUST KNOW’S’ : How to Choose Your Omega Fish Oil Supplement

  1. Does your oil contain Omega 6 ?

baked-1549171_1920You don’t need any more. Your Omega fish oil supplement should not contain any Omega 6.

Om6 is pro-inflammatory (promotes it) & it is highly likely you already have enough of it in your blood.

Main sources of Om6 are :

NOTE: Do not ingest any more Omega 6

 

2. Should it contain more EPA or DHA ?

Both EPA & DHA are amazingly good for you. Studies in fact show that DHA has even more health benefits than EPA.

Particularly for your brain & eyes.

NOTE: You want a supplement higher in DHA to EPA.

 

3. Capsules or Liquid?

You want your oil to be in a liquid form. Why? One reason is it will be purer & gone through less handling.

The second reason is that in the heating of the capsules in order to seal them a portion of the DHA is lost to the heat. The more heat process the oil is put through the less fresh it will be.

As mentioned you want as much DHA to remain as possible.

NOTE: Make sure your oil is in liquid form

 

4. How pure is your oil ?

All oils in the UK must pass stringent tests to be fit for human consumption. The industry standard in Scandinavia (where the best fish comes from) is the TOTOX Value.

Totox stands for total oxidation & assures that the oil is pure & fresh. Basically how many toxins are in the oil & how quickly is it ageing.

Clearly you want the purest oil with as little toxins present as possible & you want it to be fresh.

TIP: The more fishy smelling an oil becomes the less fresh it is.

In the Uk all oils must score 10 or below on the Totox Value. This should be public information but not all companies release this information easily. (I wonder why?)

The lower the score on the Totox the cleaner, purer & fresher the oil.

It is fit for human consumption if you see on the shelves in the Uk but the closer to 10 on the Totox score the less pure it is.

I think of it like this: a drop of arsenic each day wont kill me but it certainly isn’t doing me any good. Combine that with all the other toxins coming in & over the years of accumulation it could become a problem…. The purer the better.

NOTE: Only use the lowest scoring oil from the Totox Test. If a company wont tell you that information DON’T TAKE THEIR OIL.

 

5. How much should a quality oil cost ?

For a decent oil expect to invest £30-£40 per bottle.

This is one area where a little extra is worth it. You could choose to save a pound or two per month but be wasting your money if its optimal health, vitality & wellness you are in search of.

There are some excellent oils out there for around £1 per day – what is your health & happiness worth to you ?

NOTE: £1 per day could save you many aches, pains & potential risk to diseases especially as you age.

 

6. How do I know I need it & how much should I take ?

Most people take Omega supplements blind: They don’t know their Omega status & don’t know if the product is doing them more harm than good AND if the product is doing anything at all !

There are some extremely simple ways to test your Omega status these days & combine that with the other facts above you will know exactly how much you need & for how long.

NOTE: Get the simple cost effective test & correct your Omega levels asap. Your health, energy & performance could depend on it.

 

To conclude…

If you were to prioritise your budget to ‘which supplement will give me the most bang for my buck?’ then TWO jump out & every health care practitioner will tell you the same:

  1. Multi vitamin
  2. Omega supplement

 

You have a simple decision to make…

The 3 Priority Ways to Drop Fat

  1. Low GI Foods
  2. Resistance Training
  3. Compound Exercises

1) Low Gi Foods

GI stands for Glycemic Index. This tells us whether a food raises blood glucose (sugars) quickly, moderately or slowly.

Different carbohydrates are digested and absorbed at different rates & GI is a ranking of how quickly each carbohydrate-based food and drink makes blood glucose levels rise after eating them.

You want a slow steady release of energy (sugar) from the foods you eat. So choosing low GI is the smarter choice – the energy will be released slower & provide energy for a longer period of time & will in turn cause less of an insulin response.

Insulin is the hormone of fat-storage & ageing. Control that & you control those two factors to a certain extent.

This is how foods are classified:

Low GI Medium GI High GI
0-55 56-69 70 or greater

Choose low to moderate GI foods & you will manage your blood sugar effectively. Portion sizes & timing do play a part but this is the most important element to consider.

I’ll show you how to put this into a meal plan & which foods are low – moderate GI at the end of this article.

2) Resistance Training

If you want to lose Fat-Weight you MUST LIFT WEIGHTS. Here’s why …

The more muscle you have the more calories you will burn. FACT. This is the way to guarantee control of your body-fat over time.

This doesn’t have to complicated. The first few sessions may be uncomfortable as you learn something new but then you will start to feel & Look great.

I coach this to all my clients & highly recommend you learn some simple moves, I’d be happy to help you out so check out my first step solution at the end of this article.

3) Compound Exercises

These are movements that involve more than one muscle group & move two or more joints.

An example of a compound movement is a bench press or a squat.

Isolation movements are single muscle group, single joint movmements, for example a bicep curl or a calf raise.

The more muscle fibres you recruit in an exercise routine the more muscle you will grow & more calories you will burn.

So a single arm bicep curl is not the best choice of exercise if fat loss is your goal. A squat, deadlift, dip, bench press, lat pulldown or a row are smarter choices.

Get the basics handled & then pick up other powerful tips & techniques as you develop. Watch a powerful fat loss solution I have for you at the end of this article.

3 Why’s Fish Oil should be your FIRST supplement

1 Why: Helps Combat EVERY disease…

You can google Fish oil and ‘ X ‘ (any disease). You’ll find reams of pages (average 1,750,000) & studies supporting the fact that fish oil helps to reduce the risk to whatever disease you type.

The benefits are FAR REACHING.

So a question you could be having right now is How do I know I need it? The answer is testing. If you don’t know your Omega status it is well worth finding out.

The further you are away from a ratio of 2:1 (Omega6:Omega3) the higher your risk to illness, ailments & disease. (I’ll show you a streamlined way to test & perfect your status in the quickest time possible at the end of this article)

 

2 Why: Fat Loss..

Again you can do your own research on Google which will pull up just under 5,000,000 pages of data supporting fish oil supplementation & fat loss.

If you want to look & feel your best for something that takes less than 30 seconds a day then fish oil supplementation is a no brainer.

The only question you should have is ‘ Which the best product & how much does it cost? ‘ (I’ll give you a genius option at a highly competetive price the end of this article…)

 

3 Why: Builds Muscle & Lowers Inflammation…

There is a more recent term coming through called ‘ INLAMMAGEING ‘ linking the rate of ageing with inflammation.

Bottom line is the more we control inflammation, think painful joints, digestive issues, outbreaks of rashes & acne on the skin, the longer we keep our youthful looks & vibrancy.

At the same time we get to build more muscle which is one of the top determinants of longevity. Fact is the more muscle you have the more calories you’ll burn (even at rest) so basically put the more muscle you have the less likely you will get fatter !
