YOUR PATH OF REJUVENATION
Now you have started on the path of rejuvenation and formed new food habits. There are certain important rules which will help you in attaining them. The following should be adhered to:
Eat only young, tender vegetables. If meat is eaten, limit it to once a week and make sure it is young and lean. Eat broiled beef liver twice a week, fowl twice a week (without skin) and seafood three times a week. Limit starchy foods severely, especially if you are over 40. Limit white flour and sugar entirely from your diet. Instead, eat an interesting chemical meal which contains all the necessary elements. Large green salads with dressing made of sesame oil, fresh apple cider vinegar, honey, paprika and some water, should be taken regularly. Don't stuff yourself with bread. One slice with each meal is sufficient. Whole wheat germ, whole wheat and soya breads are recommended. Eat bran for roughage. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of distilled or spring water daily. Don't drink water during meals. A cup of plain yogurt before retiring is a must. Drink a glassful of fresh lemon juice (one lemon) in warm water three times daily. This has proven to be most effective in the elimination and mucus and keeping your weight normal. For in-between snacks, eat fresh fruits such as dates, figs, apricots, raisins and nuts. Drink two glasses of buttermilk daily.
FOODS TO AVOID
White flour products, white sugar products, hard water, old vegetables, coarse, matured meats, pork, muscle meats, excessively fatty foods, salt food high in animal fats, adulterated foods. Carbonated drinks, processed food, alcoholic beverages, coffee, tea, sweets of all kinds, condiments of all kinds, sauces, gravies, saccharin, synthetic sweeteners, synthetic pills, drugs in the form of laxatives and sedatives and especially homogenized milk - which is highly mucus- forming or any cow's milk.
I have personally tried low carb diets and Atkins diet and these diets made me lose weight very quickly. However not only did I lose body fat weight, I also lost muscle weight. I had very obvious muscle and fat loss because I can visually see my reduced muscle mass in the mirror.
This certainly isn’t healthy. Furthermore, the more muscle mass that you lose, the less toned your body shape is. The end result is that you will end up thin and yet looked flabby with lose skin.
The frustrating part will be that after you are off the low carb or Atkins diet, you will very probably gain back all the weight that you have loss and even more. This is because your muscles are active and they continuously burn calories. Since you have less fewer muscle mass now, your body’s metabolism or capacity to burn calories slows down tremendously.
In other words, when you put on weight again, you are putting on body fat instead of muscles if you do not exercise. You will be fatter and less healthy than before you went on the low carb or Atkins diet. To compound matters, because of lesser muscle tissues resulting in lower metabolism and thus lesser calories being burnt, you are going to get fatter.
Since then I have stayed off both low carb and Atkins diet. Both types of diets are almost similar as they require you to cut down drastically on your consumption of carbohydrates. Atkins diet went a step further by advocating almost no carbohydrate consumption for 2 weeks before adding some carbs to your meals gradually thereafter.
Besides losing muscles, how safe are low carb diets?
Low carbohydrate diets for weight management are far from healthy, given their association with ketosis, constipation or diarrhea, halitosis, headache and general fatigue to name a few.
Doctors warn that the diet increases protein load on the kidneys and alters the balance of acid in the body. This also results in loss of minerals from the bone stores and affect bone strength. Doctors go on to say that, “Our most important criterion should be indisputable safety and low carbohydrate diets currently fall short of this benchmark.”
Dr Atkins, the creator of the Atkins diet died in 2003 after he was alleged to have slipped on an icy road and hurt his head fatally. However his medical report stated that he had a history of heart attack, hypertension and congestive heart failure.
Were Dr Atkins medical conditions related to his low carbohydrates diet is anybody’s guess. Do you want to take the risk by going on a low carb diet? I don’t think I will. If I ever want to lose weight again, I will rather go on the proven method of healthy eating and regular exercises instead of jumping on any fad diets without doctor's instructions.
When it comes to beauty products I use with caution. I've tried most of the leading beauty products in the local market from papaya soaps, hydroquinone, pearl paste, whitening lotion to bleaching powder. After regular use of these products I find no improvement so I just stop using them.
Then six months ago I used a papaya soap (too local) that left my face red and stinging. Since then I have not applied any product on my skin. Yes, despite my skin developing unsightly fine lines and my eyes developing dark circles due to stress and lack of sleep, I have never used any product since then. But these past ten days I've tried to catch up in caring for my health... I went on a detox diet, started taking anti-oxidant multivitamin (HavitAll) and learning to handle stress. Within those ten days a friend offered me a Glutathione-based soap from UNO
I was glad to get hold of this well-known product, but I hoped this wasn't one of those labeled "fake" in the news. Skeptical, I said I'll just try it for 2 days and if it won't work or if it will harm my skin - I'll just stop. Eight days later, to my amazement, my skin's texture improved, the fine lines diminished and even my freckles are fading! And it did not sting at all.
Now I'm using it, not really to whiten my skin but to detoxify it. My 30-something niece kidded me once, "Sa lagay na yan, may lakas ng loob ka pang gumamit ng glutathione?" She meant I'm already fair-skinned and yet I still see the need to use the soap. Well, I said, yes I see my need for it - health-wise =)
So here's what I found about Glutathione...
GLUTATHIONE- small protein composed of 3 amino acids called cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine, produced normally by the body in response to today’s environment such as pollution in the air we breath, water we drink, chemicals & pesticides in the food we eat that cause damages in our cells & system.
Glutathione is often referred to as Master Anti-oxidant in the body.“small molecule made up of linked amino acids and anti-oxidant naturally produced in the body. It has been widely heralded for its importance for good health and long life.
Glutathione in increased dose posts a remarkable good 'side effect' such as SKIN WHITENING".“the greater the exposure to toxins, the faster the body uses up its supply glutathione. Without the protection of Glutathione, cells die at a faster rate, making people age quicker & putting them at risk for toxin induced diseases including cancer.”
GLUTATHIONE (GSH) (Anti-oxidant, Anti-aging and for Fairer Skin)

PRIMARY BIOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS:
- to act as a non-enzymatic reducing agent to help keep cysteine thiol side chains in a reduce state onthe surface of proteins
- involved in the synthesis & repair of DNA
- helps to recycle Vit. C and Vit. E
- blocks free radical damage
- enhances the anti-oxidant activity of Vit. C
- facilitates the transport of amino acids
- plays a critical role in the detoxification of harmful compounds
- is the base material for several other key antioxidant enzyme systems such as, glutathione-peroxidase, glutathione-reductase and glutathione-transferase
- Body (AID) A - ntioxidant I - mmune booster D - etoxifier
THEREFORE, declines in glutathione concentrations in intracellular fluids correlate directly withindicators of aging.

Now let's say you are walking down the street with these thoughts. Do you think anyone who would meet you would be able to tell you what’s on your mind?
The answer to number one is up to you. But, the answer number two can be pretty generic. Although people will not be able to tell you exactly what you think, they will more or less have an idea of how you are feeling.
Here's another question. When you enter a party filled with friends, do they all fall silent as if something terrible had happened? Or does everybody there perk up as if waiting for something exciting to happen?
You know what? The answer to all these depends on your frame of mind.
Thoughts are very powerful. They affect your general attitude. The attitude you carry reflects on your appearance, too – unless, of course, you are a great actor.
And it doesn't end there. Your attitude can also affect people around you.
The type of attitude you carry depends on you. It can be either positive or negative.
Positive thoughts have a filling effect. They are admittedly invigorating. Plus, the people around the person carrying positive thoughts are usually energized by this type of attitude.
Negative thoughts on the other hand have a sapping effect on other people. Aside from making you look gloomy and sad, negative thoughts can turn a festive gathering into a funeral wake.
A positive attitude attracts people, while a negative attitude repels them. People tend to shy away from those who carry a negative attitude.
We can also define attitude as the way of looking at the world. If you choose to focus on the negative things in the world, more or less you have a negative attitude brewing up. However, if you choose to focus on the positive things, you are more likely carry a positive attitude.
You have much to gain from a very positive attitude. For one, studies have shown that a positive attitude promotes better health. Those with this kind of attitude also have more friends. projecting a positive attitude also helps one to handle stress and problems better than those who have a negative attitude.
A positive attitude begins with a healthy self-image. If you will love the way you are and are satisfied, confident, and self-assured, you also make others are around feel the same way.
A negative attitude, on the other hand, has, of course, an opposite effect. So, carrying a negative attitude has a twofold drawback. You feel bad about yourself, and you make others feel the same way.
If you want to have a positive attitude, you have to feature healthy thoughts. This is probably very hard to do nowadays since, all around us, the media feeds us nothing but negative thoughts. A study shows that for every 14 things a parent says to his or her child, only one is positive. This is truly a saddening thought.
If you want a healthier outlook in life, you need to think happy thoughts, and you have to hear positive things as well. So, what can you do? Well, for starters, you could see a funny movie, you could play with children, spend some time telling jokes with friends. All these activities fill you with positive stimuli, which in turn promotes positive attitude.
Although it is impossible to keep ourselves from the negative things around us, you can still carry a positive attitude by focusing on the good things, the positive things in life.
And this positive attitude you now carry can be of benefit to other people. Sometimes when other people feel down, the thing people mostly do is try to give them advice. But sometimes, all they need is somebody to sit by them, and listen to them. If you have a positive attitude you may be able to cheer them up without even having to say anything.
If positive attitude is really great, why do people choose to adopt a negative attitude instead? One who carries a negative attitude may be actually sending a signal for attention. Before you get me wrong, feeling sad, angry, or gloomy is not wrong itself. But dwelling on these thoughts for far too long is not healthy either. There is a time to mourn.
As always, if you are beset by troubles, even in your darkest hour, focus on the good things in life, you will always have hope. Problems become something you can overcome.
You do not have much to lose by adopting a healthy, positive attitude. Studies show that such an attitude actually retards aging, makes you healthier, helps you develop a better stress coping mechanism, and has a very positive effect on all the people you meet every day. So, what's not to like about a positive attitude? Adopt one today.
To stretch those unwanted facial wrinkles---
Just spread egg whites on your face and forehead. Let it dry and in 5 mins. Scrape the inner covering of the eggshell and spread it on your most wrinkled area. Leave for 3 mins. Wash with lukewarm water and soap. And finally with cold water.
Some call this a mind movie, others call it the positive affirmations video. Anyway, I just thought of posting this, with the author's permission. There are plenty others on Youtube similar to this. I regularly watch relaxation videos until I came across this video.
