“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.

“ Do You Want an ENERGY Breakthrough? ”

Think about this…

wow-1426595_1920If you’re around the same age as me, when you were in school, there was a big fear around fossil fuels.

‘They’re going to run out, were not going to be able to fuel our cars, fuel our homes, fuel our cities, the world’s going to come to an end’.

It was real, it was really happening. It was a fact and there was no way of getting away from it.

 

So right now, the state of your mind, the state of your body, the state of your finances – that seems real as well…

But the same as fossil fuels, in a moment, that can change. No matter how solid, no matter how real, no matter how apparent something appears to be; It can change.

 

That’s where opportunity for a breakthrough comes in. Because energy is not scarce. We were led to believe that back in the day (or maybe that’s all we knew) but we just had a lack of information.

Fact is that energy is not scarce.

 

2016 was the first year that our renewable energy sources out-preformed our conventional energy fuels. So we had more energy coming from renewable energy in 2016, think solar power, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal – that’s the first time that has happened in history. So fossil fuels and oil are on their way out!

 

So change can happen fast, in a moment. When you discover something that can cause a breakthrough for your energy, that’s when you can get the breakthrough for your physique, for your emotions, for your financial state – any area of your life. Because energy is what and where, it’s all about.

“The person that can generate & sustain the highest energy for the longest period of time will win”

 

If you’d like a breakthrough in your energy levels that can Simply Radically Effectively impact your entire life in a positive way then contact me today & let me know in a short sentence what would be a MASSIVE BREAKTHROUGH for you.

I may make you an offer you cant refuse (or I may not). The only way to find out is have a simple & quick conversation with me – What have you got to gain?

“Your Brain, Pain & Energy”

I was listening to professor Timothy Noakes who has led exercise science for 20+ maybe even 30+ years now and is a big proponent of low carb, high fat diets.

What I’m going to talk about here is the brain. Timothy actually explains that the main limiting factor within your results (using physical activity as the example) is not exhaustion or decrease in energy, but rather the brain being the limiting factor in order to protect the body.

brain-2062048_1920

For an insight into where you should LENS your efforts for maximum energy & results complete this 4 minute questionnaire for a personalised coaching report: https://goo.gl/hyUp7t

 

What they found through testing over 30 years is that you can find two people with exactly the same VO2 Max (that’s usually the limiting factor that will tell you someone’s performance) and you will get one that can run a marathon in 2 hours 20 minutes and the other can run it in 3 hours.

 

Some people experience these illusions of pain in the muscle or pain in the joint, as blocking you to protect you. So the brain is blocking you from continuing the race.

 

As long as we know this information we know that we can keep going, and get a better experience from it and even learn more.

 

He’s wrote several books, one of them is the law of running and another is real meal revolution. He’s run 71 marathons and ultra marathons (ultra marathons are 50 miles!)

 

The point being in this one is that your brain again is the limiting factor. I keep going back to this because if 80% of your results is psychology, 20% is mechanics and there’s a lot of evidence that points to that being the truth then where should we focus most of our efforts? On the brain.

 

We can work on our brain, work on our emotions and work on our energy levels but where does our energy come from? I had this conversation earlier, does it come from food, does it come from oxygen does It come from sleep?

 

I propose something to you that energy comes from movement, the more you move the more energy you get. Have you noticed that when you’re really active and you’re doing things the more energy you’ve got and you can keep going? When you’re more lethargic and you’ve allowed yourself to be a little bit lazy you can’t be bothered to do anything. This is clear that much of something brings more.

 

Timothy Noakes said that your brain is a limiting factor, but when we know this if it’s fear or if it’s actually pain from exercise, we know that the brain may be bringing up that illusion just to try and protect us and if we can go through that we can actually extend, and get our results that we desire a little bit sooner than we thought rather than being stopped by these illusions.

‘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…

If you want to cover ALL the bases mentioned above & have access to the most SUPERIOR oil on the market so ‘ YOU LOOK & FEEL YOUR BEST ‘ get that decision handled right now by CLICKING HERE.

 

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 !

7 Benefits of Fish Oil

Image

Although fish oil is highly beneficial to our bodies because of the omega-3 fatty acids it provides, it’s really hard to get enough from fish. For every mackerel, salmon, bluefish, tuna, sturgeon, anchovy, sardine, herring, or trout that you eat, you only take in about 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids for every 3.5 ounces of fish.

Supplements on the other hand give you the required amounts of omega-3 fatty acids in a simple pill. Fish oil supplements are made from mackerel, salmon, cod liver, halibut, tuna, whale blubber, seal blubber, or herring. The added benefits of supplements are that they can also provide calcium, iron, or vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, or D.

Here are 7 benefits you get from taking fish oil:

 

1) Improves the Heart

Fish oil supplements provide an amazing health transformation when taken regularly. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish have been found to lower blood pressure, reduce triglycerides, slow plague build up in arteries, reduce the chance of heart attacks and strokes, and also prevent cardiac death in people with heart disease.

A strong heart means that the blood will efficiently carry oxygenated blood to your muscles. Whether you’re working out or walking, you’ll feel a lot better and your health will improve. Some people take fish oil supplements to keep up with the American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations. While others specifically couple fish oil supplements with fitness programs to enhance their results.

The AHA recommends that fatty fish should be eaten at least twice a week. The only problem with this is that it’s hard to incorporate so much fish into your diet, and depending on the quality of the fish it can also be dangerous!.

Big fish like tuna and salmon have a lot of mercury. Eating a lot of fish every week can actually start to hurt you in the long run. Supplements not only make it easier to get the omega-3 fatty acids into your body, but it also makes it safer. This is done by your supplement company (if they are good?). They will create a pure fish oil supplementation free from heavy metals & toxins.

2) Strengthens the Kidneys

Taking 4-8 grams of fish oil a day for two years has been shown to slow the deterioration of kidney function for people who have a kidney disease called IgA nephropathy.

3) Reduces ADHD Symptoms

Studies have shown that children who meet the daily omega-3 fatty acid recommendations have reduced symptoms of ADHD and improved cognitive function.

4) Feeds the Brain

In addition to reducing ADHD symptoms, fish oil supplements improve the brain in many other ways. Some research shows that fish oil supplementation can protect against Alzheimer’s disease. It can also slow down dementia or memory impairment with old age.

It’s hard not to call omega-3 fatty acids a “brain food” because it’s also been shown to help patients with psychosis symptoms, bipolar disorders, and depression.

  

5) Helps you Lose Fat

Omega-3 fatty acids help you burn fat when your body would normally stop burning it. If you take fish supplements your body will continue to burn fat even after a high-carb meal or after high-intensity exercise (where the body starts burning glycogen).

Fish oil supplements also increase insulin sensitivity. That means that less insulin is created after a meal, which means that less fat will be stored.

6) Builds Muscles Faster

Omega-3 fatty acids increase the productivity of the mitochondria in your cells which is responsible for creating energy. When the mitochondria burn more energy more efficiently, you’ll not only lose weight, but build muscle as well.

7) Keeps the Eyes Healthy

A lot of studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for infant vision development and beneficial to teens and adults. Fatty acids lower the chances of high eye pressure and glaucoma by improving the drainage of intraocular fluid from the eye.

Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements can also treat dry eyes. It’s been discovered in studies that people who ate two servings of tuna per week had less risk of dry eyes than people who ate one serving or less.
