Back to Basics With Metabolic Cooking

Back to Basics with Metabolic Cooking.

So what is Metabolic Cooking????

Metabolic cooking is back to basic cooking of healthy foods that will increase your metabolism.

These foods are designed to help you maintain a high metabolism and burn more calories naturally.

For years we have been eating all this quick, easy supposedly health food.

We know what we are eating is not good for us and we just keep on eating it whether it is convenience, laziness or just not sure what is and not good for us.

There are two things we know that are not good for us that is fats and sugar.

So is it as black and white as that.

Of course not.

Yes sugar is no good for us that is true and this diagram can show you why….

Fat Burning Zone is our Aim When our body’s sugar level is balanced it should be anywhere between 4.0 and 5.5 mmol/L.

There are many foods that are still classed as healthy and are full of sugar that will increase our blood sugar level.

These foods need to be avoided – cereals, orange juice, whole wheat bread,  and all those dressings stating low fat are bad sugar in disguise.
We have a sugary snack or something we believe to be healthy; our sugar level jumps up and it stays above 5.5 consistently then our body looks after us and releases insulin.

With this release of insulin our body stores fat and our blood sugar levels drop and then we feel hungry again and of course crave sugar so you can see how the cycle begins and meanwhile our body is constantly storing fat.

The question we ask is… Is our body looking after us?

Answer…. yes it is.

So the real question…. Are we looking after our body?

We all know this answer.   If we continue to do this to our body we could develop a condition called diabetes.

So what has this to do with back to basic metabolic cooking, well there are foods which will satisfy our hunger

and will keep our blood sugars maintained, we will always have an increase in sugar and insulin will be released to combat this, it will be just done at normal healthy ratios.

I have been trying for quite some time to get my head around from what we should and should not eat.

We live in a world where body image is so important and so everyone goes on those crazy diets, I was one of them.

I realise now it does not matter what you look like on the outside if your internal workings are letting you down.
Our body’s are wonderful the way they look after us, however like any machine if you do not maintain and service it, it will let you down.

The best and most valuable information I can share with you is metabolic cooking, honestly going back to basics, before processing came along.
Good foods that you can have are sprouted grain breads, rice, spelt, millet, quinoa, sweet potatoes, all fruit and vegetables, steak, chicken, fish and eggs. Image the meals you can make with these choices.  Yum.
Yes fruit has sugar, however the chains in those sugars are easily metabolised in our bodies so don’t be afraid to enjoy our wonderful fruit.
So now I have mentioned steak and eggs – any man’s dream, I should discuss metabolic cooking with fats.

There is always confusion with fats.

Are they good for us will fats make us fat.

Well yes, some fats certainly however there are good  fats that our body actually needs to increase metabolism and help keep our cholesterol levels down.

So start to enjoy fats like REAL butter, whole eggs, coconut oil, raw nuts, avocados and olive oil virgin pressed.

As I said before we need to avoid processed foods and the most obvious ones are the artificial sweeteners, soya milk, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils  – these are those solid oils.

Last little one is the use of spices in your cooking this is wonderful for your metabolism.

Shapely Body for my Holiday Cruise

I am motivated to achieve a shapely body for my holiday cruise.

I even bought these see-through long beach pants to show off my body.

Now just have to fit into them.

I am a reasonably fit person and I find it easy to lose motivation for lots of things.

I was doing yoga 3-4 times a week and running 5-10 km 3 times a week.

Have not done this for months, so I searched the Internet and found this excellent book.

Took on its 31 day challenge and this photo is the result.  I took the photos myself

and tried to get them to be the same size so this is the best I could come up with.

Anyway now that I am going on this cruise up the east coast of Australia I want a more shapely body.
So I have talked my Mum and sister into getting a shapely body for the cruise.  It is a family get together for my parents 50th wedding anniversary.

Wow that is a long time actually that is how old I am??????? Few questions to ask on this cruise.

 

It is 30days until the cruise so today is Day 1 of my second 30 day challenge. (one day short I know)

So join me on my trip, “the challenge” it is on my forum and maybe you can join me on my cruise. I will take many photos.

If you are interested in the book I found then Click Here! It is bloody brilliant.  Vic even gives a 100% guarantee

I honestly found it to be brilliant – just 15 minutes a day.

Do stick to it and I will guarantee the man in your life will actually notice.

Mine did so let’s go for that shapely body even if you are not going on a cruise.

Oxytocin in Women…its true value.

As women we are the nurturer

and in the 21st century this nurturer is being seen more and more in leadership roles; is this due to oxytocin release in women.

Women Entrepreneurs are starting to lead the way in the business world.

Women entrepreneurs have been moving away from the old movement that we have to remould ourselves using these quite stark positive affirmations….

WE ARE MONEY MAGNETS

MONEY WILL COME TO US

…this is okay for men; saying these statements releases adrenaline which promotes a fight or flight response in their system. So yes for men this does help to them to achieve and become successful, however we are women.

…as for women,

using a more feminine approach to these affirmations can help us to achieve and become successful and feel just as feminine on that path to success.

As compassionate nurturers we do not naturally enjoy being in constant states of “fight or flight” we are more “care and befriend,” so we need to say to ourselves more feminine statements which releases oxytocin in women….

“I trust that now is right for me to embody my success”

“My feminine energy is beautifully balanced”

Oxytocin in women, now being called the prosperity hormone, seems to be the basis for women’s success in business.

We are more “care and befriend,” and this is how we achieve and become successful. Yes we release adrenaline and that is for the times when we do need to use the fight or flight response, like when we are walking in the yard and we are confronted by a snake….yes fight or flight and hopefully we will choose flight.

Women who use the adrenaline approach tend to burn out easier and these women do not remain tapped into their own selves.

So how are women successful with business;

what is this “care and befriend”; well in women we have this wonderful hormone oxytocin.

Oxytocin is the hormone released in the most precious time of their lives – during childbirth, to open our cervix to allow our new baby to pass through the birth canal to be born, this process is not a comfortable one and this natural release of oxytocin gives women the ability to cope with childbirth.

The “gas” is okay too.

Also this chemical inspires a woman’s bonding mechanism with her partner, with her children and during times when other forms of bonding occur such as in building business relationships.

Oxytocin is referred to as the prosperity hormone and with its release, recently the chemical effects have been found to influence social behaviour in human bonding.

It may be involved in the formation of trust, empathy and generosity in personal relationships because it reduces anxiety and fears.

Today’s world of business is very focussed on developing business relationships and the release of oxytocin in women is proving that women entrepreneurs are on the rise and growing.

If you read our post on Women Entrepreneurs this article helps to understand why women are so successful in business.

Getting Back Into the Rhythm…

Let’s get back to the rhythm we live in a physical world of vibrations, sound waves are vibrations, light waves are a form of vibration and our brain waves are a form of vibration. So I do believe it is time to get back to the rhythm.
Online you can read testimonials of hundreds of people whose lives have been transformed by getting back to the rhythm. I am talking about brain wave vibration, where you learn how to move your body to your own personal internal natural healing rhythms.
We live in such a busy, busy world where demands are constantly placed upon ourselves. We collapse into bed and our brain just does not switch off.

We are restless, we wake with a start and realise our brain is still working in day time mode.

Brain wave vibration is probably the most simple and effective way to get at least a great night’s sleep.

Brain wave vibration is easy to do and can bring your body and mind back into balance for total health, happiness and joy within yourself.

Whilst you are performing this easy to learn practice you are slowing down your brain waves and letting your own body’s natural inbuilt healing processes take over. This slowing down process helps you get back the rhythm of sleep.
Sounds a bit like mediation, well it is in a way, however much easier as you do not have to empty the mind, you can do it anywhere anytime from a few seconds to 10 minutes.

It is amazing, it works. I have attached a video (the bottom one) which has some testimonials.

With Brain Wave Vibration, you can become more focused therefore able to:

  • Manage your stress more effectively
  • Stimulate your own natural healing processes
  • Regain your physical energy
  • Keep your emotions in check
  • Awaken your creative potential
  • & get a great night sleep

Brain Wave Vibration combines ancient healing traditions with our modern scientific understanding of the brain.
Most ancient cultures recognise a universal life force, an energy that exists in all things. Even Asian healing systems theorise that it is the balanced flow of ki through certain pathways in the body (Chinese call this life-energy pathway – meridian) that determines our health and well being.

I have attached 3 videos just to get the idea of what brain wave vibration is and also there is this book if you want to read more about it.

Brain Wave Vibration: Getting Back into the Rhythm of a Happy, Healthy Life by Ilchi Lee.

So enjoy getting back to the rhythm and vibrate your way to a whole new you.

Just wanted to share this information as it is simple and does not take long.

The mind is in a relaxed state so those positive thoughts just keep flowing.

So remember….
“Your Are Your Thoughts!”

Margaret Sanger the Contraceptive Outlaw…

A woman must not accept; she must challenge.

She must not be awed by that which has been built around her;

she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.

~ Margaret Sanger

I found this quote and was inspired about it, I then looked to see who Margaret Sanger is or was and found out she was a villain,  this woman gave out contraception information and devices knowing these were outlawed.  The audacity of this woman.

This woman did not accept, she most definitely challenged.

So let’s see why this woman was so bold,  Margaret Sanger was educated as and worked as a nurse.  In her work with poor women on the Lower East Side of New York, she was aware of the effects of unplanned and unwelcome pregnancies.

Her mother’s health had suffered as she bore eleven children. She came to believe in the importance to women’s lives and women’s health of the availability of birth control, a term which she’s credited with inventing.

Well so far she seems like a caring, compassionate nurse who was compassionate to the women she cared for:

  • 1912 Sanger gave up nursing work to dedicate herself to the distribution of birth control information
  • 1913 Sanger went to Europe, found a paper, Women Rebel & indicted for “mailing obscenities”, Sanger fled to Europe
  • 1914 Sanger founded the National Birth Control League
  • 1916 Sanger was writing articles on health “the Call”, she collected and published these articles – “What Every Girl Should Know”
  • 1917 Sanger published – “What Every Mother Should Know”
  • 1916 -17 set up first birth control centres in USA
  • 1918  Sent to the workhouse for “creating a public nuisance”
  • 1918 – 27 Sanger’s many arrests and prosecutions, and the resulting outcries, helped lead to changes in laws, giving doctors the right to give birth control advice to patients.  Following this doctors were also able to prescribe birth control devices.
  • 1927 Sanger helped organise the first World Population Conference in Geneva
  • 1938 Sanger wrote her autobiography after writing many books and articles on birth control and marriage
  • 1942 Planned Parenthood came into being
Margaret Sanger though seen as a woman of question, a villain was most certainly a strong advocate for women and action taker for these women.
The lower class women also did not accept they also challenged, for some of those women the result was death when they attempted self abortion.
Today we have choices and information of any type at our fingertips, those things are not outlawed, yet in all too many countries women are still treated as second class citizens, (and in some countries not even treated that well).   So as women today we are still being continually challenged and as women we must not accept.
We have the strength and the belief of Margaret in all of us and as women we must not accept, we must challenge to be the fulfilled happy woman that we are.
I read about Margaret and saw that she devoted her life to what she believed.  Her success was achieved as she knew what she wanted and knew her goal.  How she got there she paid no concern it would happen.  Her message and thoughts were answered and she accepted and received.   She married a very wealthy, influential man who believed in what she was doing so she was able to achieve her goals.
We all can achieve our life purpose and this web-page and forum is here to help us achieve just that.
So join our forum and see what we can achieve.
