Ageless Ageing

 

Ageless ageing is not only about Lotions, Creams, Masks and Botox!

Ageless aging is about much more than that, to start with a belief and understanding
that food is medicine and the best medicine is healthy GST free food.

If you are paying GST that means the food is:-
1. Fast Food (Take away food)
2. Package Food & Canned Food
3. Processed food.
The best food is fresh and raw!
The best foods that you can consume for your skin are those,
referred to as Antioxidants which create healthy skin cells. As the
cellular damage caused by free radicals is believed to be responsible for initiating premature aging of the skin.

As your skin is your biggest organ and fast at replacing and rejuvenating skin cells once the regrowth of cells slows down aging is
faster. In other words eat the right foods and you can slow down the
aging process.
Antioxidants such as Beta-Carotene found in dark leafy vegetables and in yellow and orange coloured fruits and vegetable.
These create Vitamin A in the body as the body requires it.
Vitamin A has been found to be excellent for the skin.imagesXS5GDXCD
Other Antioxidants such as “Bioflavonoids” or
Vitamin P provides the orange and yellow colour in citrus fruits which prevents capillary fragility and easy bruising which is again very aging to the skin. “Capsaicin” gives chilli peppers their bite which is known to be beneficial effects on blood fats and reduces bad cholesterol. “Carotenoids” are naturally occurring in fruits and vegetables an antioxidant which gives some fruits and vegetables their red colour. “Catechins” are found in green tea and berries helps fight against viral infection and berries are known to be a super food very affective in reversing the aging of skin and especially Blue Berries are known as a brain food as well. “Coumarins” are natures own blood thinners found in many fruits and vegetables including parsley, cereal grains and citrus fruits. “Cruciferous Indoles” found in Cabbage, Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts induces protective enzymes that deactivate estrogen. “Ellagic” Acid found in cherries, grapes and strawberries prevents healthy cells from changing.
It goes without saying that living a active life adds to a healthy long life. Having a great attitude also helps, “Old can wait” and  you don’t have go to the gym everyday but a good brisk walk everyday for more than 30 minutes for all your life not just for a year or 2 is the best way to get the most out of your life.

There are some specific anti aging exercises you can do:

1. Rotate  wrists
2. Move head up and down slowly
3. Move head from one side to the other slowly.
4. Boxing in the air “Shadow Box”.
Also read my blog on reasons to exercise.

Below is what I would recommend to remove from your life and diet, as well as what to add in order to reverse the aging process.
1. Stop smoking (We know how aging smoking is to the skin). If I have one regret of my life is that I smoked for far too long, so I do understand the addiction. But if I can give it up so can you!

2. Reduce alcohol intake to safe levels, binge drinking is known to be far more adverse to your health and mental health than drinking a couple of alcoholic drinks on a regular basis.

3. Sugar (watch out for hidden sugars, like in fruit juice especially apple juice) Soft drinks (most soft drinks drunk in high doses induces rapid weight gain). Instead of adding sugar to your cereal and tea etc. use Honey instead. Honey is very good for you.

4. Processed  carbohydrates such as white bread which, once consumed, will clog up veins like glue! Avoid cakes and biscuits which are high in sugars have little nutritional value.

5. Avoid deep fried foods .

Remove the above from your diet and watch the kilos fall off and change your skin from grey, saggy and wrinkly to bright, plump and smooth in a matter of months!
Put a glow on that lovely face of yours!
Foods to add to your diet to aid in healthy skin
in alphabetical order are:-imagesNRVJ4LTD
Almonds, Alfalfa, Artichoke, Avocado, Avocado Oil, Beetroot, Berries, Black Beans, Brown Rice, Broccoli, Coconut Oil, Dark Grapes, Eggs (boiled free range) Garlic, Green Tea, Flax Seeds, Herbs, Honey, Kale, Kidney Beans, Leeks, Lemons,Lentils, Legumes, Milk, Mint, Oats, Olive Oil, Oysters, Oily Fish, Pumpkin Seeds, Salmon, Spinach, Sweet Potato, Tomatoes, Tuna Fish, Water, Water Cress.

So basically what I am saying add a bit of colour to you dinner plate not only will your skin be grateful but so will your body.  Drink water frequently during the day and carry water with you all the time to rehydrate your body. You will feel an increase of energy, you will feel happier and much more motivated to be present in your life.

Remember age is just a number, it is how you age that is a state of mind. Do yourself a favour take 3 months out of your life and do something for yourself, your family will love you for it!

Obesity


Obesity is now at epidemic proportions!

We can change the world if we think we can,
one person at a time starting with our selves.
Our objective is to create an awareness of the                                                 ever increasing obesity rate in Australian Adults,                                           urging a life style change to reverse this trend.

Obesity17Hence we have created a 12 week program  for maximum of 12 people.
This is our “No Diet” Diet, it is a life style change.
Slowly over 12 weeks we provide the information, the tools to change destructive habits formed over a period of time that caused the weight gain. We are so lucky that our well designed bodies
respond very well to change. It is our minds we need to convince, that takes some work hence the 12 weeks. Food is medicine with the right food the body begins the healing process.

Obesity is responsible for the cause of a lot of deceases:-
1. Diabetes (Type 2)
2. Coronary heart disease and strokeObesity22
3. Fatty liver disease
4. Certain types of cancers
5. Metabolic syndrome
These are the top 5 but there are many more, and each one creates another.
With diabetes if left unchecked and not managed it won’t take long
before you could be dealing with
damage to the kidneys or fatty liver or
coronary decease.

A fatty liver produces it own complications, it is thought to also be responsible for depression and mood swings, which is just not pleasant to live with for the persons and their families.

Shedding the kilo’s is the answer not only to improve your health and fitness but also to improve your state of mind.                                    You will enjoy your life much more with a healthy fit body.

“Translate knowledge into action, because awareness is not enough”

SUGAR

Sugar – The addictive drug!
I have thought for some time that sugar is an
addictive poison if eaten in large quantities.
These thoughts and feelings have finally been confirmed 025
and the situation is much worse than I initially thought! If you are overweight or obese and you have not seen “That Sugar Film” you must, you will learn so much about the damage that sugar does to the body it will hopefully spin you into action. Even if you don’t have a weight problem it is still a must see documentary, you will learn so much about health and well being which will set you up for life. You will be able to make an informed decision as to what not to feed your children and family. Then go out and buy the book “That Sugar Book” and keep it as a permanent reference it is that good!
David Gillespie says in the foreword and I quote:-
“The research was clear sugar also destroys our teeth, our gut lining, our liver, our pancreas, our kidneys and our heart. And the damage didn’t stop there, it was increasingly clear that sugar could destroy our state of mind as well. The research tells us that consuming sugar, even in moderation (a phrase invented by the food industry to give you license to eat as much as you like), is likely the cause of the modern epidemic of anxiety and depression.”
We know so much more today, more and more health and nutrition experts are convinced sugar is the problem in our modern diets but we are still led to believe it is fat. But you make up your own mind, check out low fat and light dairy products only to find they are
higher in sugar. Because when they remove the fat they need to
replace the flavour, hence these products are higher in sugar.
Kathleen Desmaisons author of The Sugar Addict’s Total Recovery Program said and I quote:- “ Sugar isn’t evil, but life is just so much better when you get rid of it”
We need to understand that sugar is a preservative hence it is in a lot of our pre-prepared foods or packaged foods.
weight loss (1)These sugars are disguised with many different names, we refer to these as the  ‘Hidden Sugars’ so if you want to lose weight it is best to go for fresh and raw foods.

Positive Attitude

 

As a Life Coach one of the first things we look for is how is your Lcoach6attitude, your attitude towards yourself and close friends and family. We check your levels of self motivation and self esteem.

Are you feeling down,  a little troubled but don’t know why?

Maybe it is time to ask yourself these questions..

PMA

  1. What is stopping me from being my best self?
  2. Do I blame others for my mistakes and inadequacy?
  3. Am I present?
  4. Am I accountable?
  5. Have I updated my goals lately?

Now stand in front of the mirror and say to yourself:-

” If it is going to be it is up to me”

You are the one who is in charge of your life and only you can make it a great life! It is your choice!
