The Best Method to Lose Weight

In my opinion what makes a person successful in losing weight is the person's motivation and determination. If you are determined to succeed you will succeed. No one can decide on your behalf, the initiation must come from you. After that comes the methods which you will choose. If I were to say what is the most important thing when trying to lose weight, it would be meal prepping. This really is the key to success. When you plan before hand all your meals, you have no choice but to succeed!By choosing healthy ingredients and preparing dishes over these, you don't need to count calories. At the end of the day what it comes down to is to eat basic nutrient dense food. It might sound boring but it's the truth. You don't need expensive superfoods, protein supplements,"magic pills" or weight loss drinks. Moreover, you don't have to think about your macros or how to divide them through your day. Planning your meals so that vegetables and whole food grains are…

Improve Your Health with this Tip

Nature heals. That's what people say and I couldn't agree more. As you know my family and I own a boat and we love to spend our time outdoors. I have always been an outdoor person but I haven't thought about why nature is important to me until recently. Since my holiday ended life has become more hectic. This leads that every time I feel that I'm busy I start to feel stressed out. Here is when I need to hit the pause button and stop to think how I want to live my life. As much as I love scheduling things, exercising and learning new things, there's only 24 hours in a day. I need to remind myself of that. So what do I do to stop the stress over coming my life? It's simple, I just connect with nature. I have a walk in the forest, swim in a lake, pick berries, water my plants. It can be whatever but the most beneficial for me is to pack up my bags and spend the entire weekend on our boat. 24 hours fresh air, green forests, blue and cold lakes guaranteed. Even foo…

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were

8 Tips to Improve Your Health

Although I hate to admit it, fall is coming and summer will soon be behind us. But if you think positively,  fall is a great time to check your healthy habits and acquire new ones. Here are my 8 Tips how to improve your well being in this fall.
1.Consume less coffee or stop drinking it completely I did this again when my work started. During the summer time I enjoyed coffee maybe four times per weeks and in some weeks even every day. As school started I cut down coffee entirely and as a result my sleep has been soooo good. I wake up feeling refreshed and most importantly I don´t wake up during the night. Here is my dedicated post about How I quit drinking coffee and it changed my life.
2. Reduce the amount of sugar you eat Needless to say sugar is aging us and giving a lot of troubles to our bodies. I wrote about the harmful effects of sugar in here.
3. Drink one juice per day By this I don´t mean orange juice or apple juices sold in the store. Instead drink your own juices. Juicing

My Continuing Education

Just a brief update what's going on in my life right now.. School has started so I'm on a working mode and my son also started his first year of school. As a result of these changes life is pretty hectic again..In addition, as you know I'm passionate about nutrition and studying so I decided to start my next journey on the field of education.. As it is, I am studying to become a Functional Medicine Nutrition Coach. The Functional medicine has always intrigued me because it always tries to find out WHY something is wrong with your body instead of just treating the symptoms. Although these studies take time (there are many courses in the university and in the corporate level which I need to take), I'm in no hurry and finish courses when ever I can. Previously I have had troubles in getting involved in too many things and as an outcome I have been very tired and stressed out. However, now I am aware of my limits so I will take it easy and not put too much pressure on mys…

Avoid these 2 Things and Your Health Will Improve Tremendously

As I have been studying nutrition even further, I have noticed certain recommendations in many researches or common factors in healthy diets. So I came up with a post relating to two things people should avoid the most in order to improve their health. In this post I will share these with you. Let’s jump right to it, shall we?
Number 1: Sugar and Processed Food
Needless to say if you consume excess amounts of sugar it will cause a lot of problems in your body. The excess sugar will make your insulin levels spike which will have an effect on your pancreas. As your pancreas will have to produce more and more insulin, it will result to the fact that the insulin will loose its effect. Your system is overwhelmed with all the excess insulin and over time insulin cannot make it to feed your cells. This will lead to insulin resistance and eventually you will need medication. In addition, your body’s hormone systems will be disturbed. Your cortisol levels will rise which will lead to even mor…
