A Time to Cleanse

Don’t eat anything after 7pm.

I heard that tip on Oprah. The rationale had something to do with losing weight and the fact that it’s easier to burn calories during the day rather than at night when we’re watching TV, reading, or sitting around talking. Part of it sounded reasonable (I guess), but another part of it sounded like a silly rule or restriction that may or may not be good for a person’s particular body. After the show, I forget the tip completely and ate past 7pm a lot.

When I began Clean Eating, I started thinking about that suggestion again. Gradually, I made dinner my final meal of the day and stopped mindless snacking afterwards. My husband and I usually don’t eat until 8pm anyway, but there was another reason why I stuck to the plan: I finally understood the rationale behind Oprah’s tip. Marilyn Polk sums it up nicely in one of the cookbooks I’m reading:

“Our bodies need a chance to cleanse, heal, and rest. Most Americans are so busy poking food into their mouths throughout the day and night that their bodies do not have a chance to cleanse, heal, or rest.”

It’s like the Eagles song based on the bible verse: There is a time for everything. A time to live and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to uproot. The idea of giving my body a time eat – and then later a time to cleanse – made so much sense. Simple. Good. Common sense. And of course, it’s only a guideline. If I’m ravenous after 8pm by all means I will eat something! That makes sense too. Š

The Benefits of HGH Supplements

HGH or Human Growth Hormone is an important hormone which is produced in the pituitary gland. HGH is responsible for many important factors such as growth and metabolism, protein synthesis and many more.

There are many benefits of using HGH supplements which can be obtained by regular use of HGH supplements. Many of these are associated with minimizing the effects of aging.

Following are some known benefits of HGH supplements.

  • HGH supplements are helpful in reducing your body weight. There are many teens who are eating a lot but don’t put up weights. The secret of this is that their bodies produce a high amount of HGH. These HGH helps in creating a higher metabolic rate. Not only in teens also in adults HGH helps to reduce body weight. However it is investigated that older people with a low level of HGH tend to loose muscles and develop high weights

Also the HGH supplements are used to reduce fat. Also HGH supplements are used to develop muscles in body builders and athletes. Read more…

Addicting Appetizer

Here is one of my favorite appetizers involving Wasa crispbread.

I searched Wasa’s recipe page and it’s on not on there, so I’m feeling rather innovative (except that I didn’t create it – the recipe was passed along by a friend of mine, but anyway . . .)

Spread a layer of organic cream cheese on Wasa crispbread.
Add two slices of cucumber.
Season with garlic power and sea salt.
Enjoy.
