About half of all U.S. deaths from heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes are linked to poor diets, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

And eating more — or less — of just 10 types of food can help raise or lower the risk of death from these causes.

Scientists at Tufts University identified the foods that seem to contribute the most to the risk. At the top of the list? Salt. Next, the high intake of red meat and processed meats such as bacon was linked to 8 percent of the deaths. And sugary drinks were a factor in 7.4 percent of the deaths.

Healthy sprouts in six days.
March 14th 2017

Bringing healthy food to the table, especially for the growing children, has never been this easy. We soak the seeds the first day for 24 hours. Then every morning and evening we fill the jars with water to do a shake and rinse. So, simply fill the jars, shake and pour the water out. once you’ve shaken the water out of the jars simply lay the jars on their side next to the sink. Keep them close and convenient. In six days you’ll have jars full of clean and organic sprouts for salads and sides. The nutritional value is exponentially higher when the beans open and the taproot grows. This is a great solution for anybody who feels they are too busy to grow their own healthy foods. With simple old-school methods no one has excuses and there is no light required. Moreover, the sweet and crunchy experience usually wins over the children.

From our experience, if you have an active lifestyle and need easily digestible foods that translate into quick and clean energy, this is definitely a route for you guys to explore.

I hope this message finds you guys excited about getting ready for the spring time.

Healthy tips (Enzyme factor by Doctor Hiromi Shinya)

Some healthy eating and habits that I collect from this book, thought I should share with you guys. I suggest you buy this book, its really well written and easy to read.

- Drink water, at least 1,5 litre per day. Human body relied heavily on that shit. Look for mineral water that has magie in it, we need that shit too.

- Cut down on milk and product from milk. Because cow milk are produced for calf, not human body in any way. Also, when we were small it can help us grow because we have enzyme which can turn it into nutrition, but once we grow older human body doesnt have that type of enzyme anymore. Liver will have hard time.

- Use oil from fish, and eat more fish + vegetable. The fat from pork cant melt down in our body because our body heat is lower than a pig, thus once it entered our body it freezes. Fish oil on the other hand, will melt. I know there’s oil from vegetable, but in the process of creating this shit there’s more oxydation factor in it, which is the main cause for cancer. Also fish oil is great for the eyes, if you have eye problem you should give fish oil product a try. 

- Eat fruits 30 minutes before every main meal. You should peel the skin of the fruit and eat it right after, because once the surface make contact with oxy, it begins oxydation process. Oxydation is the reason why metal become rusty and food become spoiled, but you can’t see that clearly in food these days. Just remember to lower as much as possible oxydation factor to your body. 

- Thus, this leads to its best to eat food when its raw. Of course human body is not made for such, but you can always try eat sashimi, sushi… Cut down on fried food as well, oil being burnt in long time means it become oxydated oil. Its ideal to only fried food once a month.

- The ideal diet should be around 85% vegetable (fruits) + 15% meat.

- Flush your intestine using enema technique, I suggest to ask doctor for it first. Its not easy but its worth it.

Im trying to follow these instruction from the book to stay healthy, but I’m not the creator for these so don’t come asking me for advice because I don’t know for sure either. Just buy the book. 


Despite being a thinspo/anorexia blog, I would never encourage people to choose my path. All of my followers probably want to lose weight - so here are a few healthy diet tips!

1. NEVER GET TOO HUNGRY - Hunger is a primal urge that’s difficult to deny. When you’re famished, it’s hard to hold off until you can find healthy food. As a result, you end up eating anything that’s not nailed down, and typically, regretting it. Planning meals and snacks works wonders to head off the intense hunger that can do a number on your best intentions to eat right.

2. USE THE RED, ORANGE AND GREEN RULE - At each meal include one food that is any of these colors. By focusing on these foods, you’ll be sure to get some produce on your plate and won’t have space on your plate for higher-calorie fare. 

3. DRINK ENOUGH WATER - Water is essential for keeping the body hydrated and we’re actually more likely to retain “water weight” by not drinking enough of it rather than by having too much. 

4. KICK THE SALT HABIT - Salt is a big contributor to weight gain and often a reason why the numbers on the scale aren’t going down. The average American consumes twice the amount of salt they should have each day, leading to weight gain, bloating, and the inability to lose stubborn pounds. Salt can also make you feel hungrier and thirstier, so check the nutrition labels for high sodium levels and choose fresh over packaged or restaurant foods. You’ll see a puffy face and belly go down quicker just by cutting back on your sodium intake and choosing more natural foods.


6. FOCUS ON NUTRIENT BALANCE INSTEAD OF COUNTING ALL THE CALORIES - Making sure an eating occasion has carbs, protein, and fat instead of just counting calories (like a 100 calorie pack) delivers better energy and fat loss results by giving the body what it needs, like quick- and longer-digesting nutrients so you stay full longer.

7. KEEP A FOOD JOURNAL - Keeping a food record is vital to losing weight and keeping it off long term.

Literally the only thing keeping me on track at the end of this pregnancy is meal prep and planning!

My next weigh in and final one with the dietician is a week on Monday and Iv literally planned and pre-tracked in my fitbit app every meal and snack untill then!

I literally have a homemade smoothie every day for breakfast, I prep 4days worth of main meals (with carbs) for lunch times and then 4days worth of some form of spinach salad with just proteins! (Picture above is fajita chicken spinach salad)

The only snack I have regularly is sometimes a hot cross bun in the afternoon when I’m flaking and sometimes I try to just stick to strawberries or banana!

I’m drinking 4400ml of water a day, 2x rasp leaf tea and 1 coffee!

And I do at least 10,000 Steps a day!

I’m always tired, always sore and hungry quite a lot of the time but I’m winning at growing a humongous baby and still losing weight although that has slowed right down this month now that he’s growing so much quicker!

By 20 weeks I’d gained 22lb (not including the 10 I gain between ovulating and the 2ww time) and I’m currently down to only gaining 10lb so far which is still coming down!

Crazy how different pregnancies can be! I’d gained 6stone by this point last time and was in a world of torment and pain from pregnancy!

Last time I lost 20lb in the first week after having Olivia. Of this is to happen again I’ll be the lowest weight Paul has ever known me and lower than pre-pregnancy!


Get Vitamin K from Kale (Dark Green Leafy Vegetables):
Leafy greens, especially dark greens, are a great source of vitamins A, C and K. Packed with fiber, the leafy green vegetable group is a versatile addition to a healthy diet.

Tah-dah! Behold my 30 Day Ab Challenge!

I added Russian twists to a Lauren Conrad template I found on Pinterest and then decided to do three rounds of the exercises each day instead of only one.

It’s probably pretty ambitious to expect myself to do three rounds for those last few days, but I’ll split exercises up into smaller sets if I need to and beastmode my way through it.
