You Are What You Eat !!!

Posted by Nice Book Club Labels:

Hello guys! Am sorry if you keep on looking for something new from my blog for over a month. Honestly, I missed blogging too! But I know that you are too busy with parties these Holidays when foods and the like are overflowing and unlimited. So let me share you instead some things about eating. It was shared to me by a friend through e-mail. It may be new to some of you, but for those who had gone through it before, please consider it a reminder.
Read, learn and lead!


We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits,
cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as
easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to

What is the correct way to eat fruit?


If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to
detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of
energy for weight loss and other life activities.

slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of
fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the
intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.

In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns
to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the
food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of
food begins to spoil.

So please eat your fruit on an empty stomach or before
your meals! You have heard people complaining - every time I
eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats
up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet
etc - actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit
on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying
other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles
under the eyes all these will not happen if you take fruits
on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and
lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our
body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on
this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating
fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health,
energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit
juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has
been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't
get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking
destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.
If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful
slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before
swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse
your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout
the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell
you how radiant you look!

KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium,
magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is
twice that of an orange.

APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an
apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants &
flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby
helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack
& stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest
total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the
body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free

ORANGE: Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may
help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent &
dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water,
it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which
helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of
lycopene - the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients
found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the
clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is
also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya
is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can you believe
this? For those who like to drink cold water, this article
is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink
after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily
stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the
digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will
break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the
solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will
turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot
soup, warm water or warm beer after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks


Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going

to be the left arm hurting. Be aware
of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the
first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they
are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from
a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we
know the better chance we could survive.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it
to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one

So, you just discovered new ways of healthy eating? Let's not forget that we're here to add life to years, not years to life. Enjoy a healthy lifestyle and live long, delighting, and fruitful life.

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year everyone. I love you guys!

Strenghthen Your Reading Habit and Be Great!

Posted by Nice Book Club Labels:

Most people wish they read more. It is an activity that is both fun and enlightening. It can help us be more knowledgeable and successful. However, it is an activity that many people don't engage in very much. According to the 1999 National Household Education Survey, 50% of the U.S. population aged 25 and over read a newspaper at least once a week, read one or more magazines regularly, and had read a book in the past 6 months. What does this mean? It means that 50% of the population hasn't read a book in the last six months! Looking at the other end of the spectrum, research shows that if you read ten books a year, you are in the top few percent of all people as readers. Simply stated, it doesn't take much to be well read, but we do need to know how to get started.

The following are ten suggestions to help you strengthen your reading habit, ways to find and make more time for reading:

  1. Always have a book around. Don't go anywhere without reading material. Keep magazines or short stories in your bathroom. Always have something in your briefcase to read. Keep a book(s) by your bed. Having things available makes it easier for you to steal otherwise lost moments.
  2. Set a reading goal. Determine how much time you want to spend reading, or how many books you want to read over time. Your goal might be a book a month, one per week, or it might be to read 30 minutes a day. Start out with something attainable but still a stretch. As your habit builds, you might set higher goals. Setting a goal is the first step towards reading more.
  3. Keep a log. Keep a list of the books you have read, or keep track of how much time you read each day. You might keep these lists in your journal or your day planner. My son's log is on our refrigerator. My list and log are kept on my computer. It doesn't matter where you keep it, just do it.
  4. Keep a list. Make a list of things you want to read in the future. Ask your friends and colleagues what they are reading. Watch for recommendations in the newspaper and magazines. Once you start looking for good books, you'll find them everywhere. This is a great way to keep your enthusiasm up. By knowing what great stuff you want to read, you will reinforce your reading habit.
  5. Turn off the television. Many people say they just don't have enough time. Television is one of our major time consumers. Make your television watching more conscious and less habitual. There is nothing wrong with watching television shows you really enjoy. Where the time gets lost is turning it on, and scanning to find "something to watch." Those are the times to turn it off and pick up your book!
  6. Listen when you can't read. Use your commute and other time spent in the car to listen! There are great audio versions of all sorts of books. Whether you want to "read" fiction, the latest self-help or diet book, it is probably available on tape. Don't get locked into the idea that you have to read it - listening to the book still gives you the experience, ideas, and imagination that reading a book can.
  7. Join a reading group or book club. Reading groups typically meet once a month to discuss a book they have all decided to read. Committing to the group provides a bit more impetus to finish the book, and gives you a great forum for discussion and socialization around the book's themes.
  8. Visit the library or bookstore often. You have your list, right? So you'll have some ideas of what you are looking for when you walk in. But there is more to be gained by walking through places where books reside than just to make a transaction. Take time to browse! Let your eyes find things of interest. Let serendipity happen. Browsing will feed your mental need to read, and give you plenty of new things to read.
  9. Build your own strategy. Decide when reading fits your schedule. Some people read first thing in the morning, some before bed. Some decide to read as they eat their lunch. And there is more to your strategy than just timing. Make your own decisions about reading. It is ok to be reading more than one book at once. It is ok to stop reading something before you finish if it isn't holding your interest. It is ok to skim the book, getting what you want or need, without reading every page. Determine what works best for you, develop your own beliefs and ideas then make them work for you.
  10. Drop Everything and Read. My son's fourth grade class has DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) time. When the teacher calls for it, that's just what they do. They read now. That is my last piece of advice for you. Do it. Just get started. Make it DEAR time. Now.
