    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why Water Is So Important

    in Fitness

    Water needs to be considered an essential nutrient. Because of easy access we take water for granted and do not realize the importance of proper hydration. According to experts, water is ranked second only to oxygen as essential for life. Your overall body weight is 2/3 water. A person can survive about two months without food, but only a few days without water.


    Water is the most abundant ingredient in the human body through all phases of growth and development. Every system in your body depends on water to function.



    Water is essential to your body’s temperature regulation, keeping it cool through perspiration.
    Water flushes out toxins and wastes.
    Water is a major component of blood which carries nutrients and oxygen to and from all cells.
    Water provides a moist environment for all body tissues. It is the major component of saliva and mucous which lubricates the membranes that line our digestive system beginning with the mouth. Mucous membranes in the nose and eyes function better when well hydrated.
    Water cushions joints and protects tissues and organs like the brain from shock and damage.
    Water helps maintain a healthy weight. It is hard to distinguish between hunger and thirst. If you feel hungry, drink some water first and then reassess your hunger status.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why Sugar Is Making You Fat and Killing You

    in Fitness

    Sugar not only makes you fat, it may be killing you.


    Consuming too much added sugar — in regular soda, cakes, cookies and candy — increases your risk of death from heart disease, according to a new study, the largest of its type.


    "The risk of cardiovascular disease death increases exponentially as you increase your consumption of added sugar," says the study's lead author, Quanhe Yang, a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


    On average, adults in the USA in 2010 consumed about 15% of their daily calories — about 300 calories a day, based on a 2,000-calorie diet — from added sugars. That's far more than the American Heart Association's recommendation that women consume no more than 100 calories a day from added sugars, or about 6 teaspoons of sugar; and men consume no more than 150 calories a day, or about 9 teaspoons. The World Health Organization recommends consuming less than 10% of calories from added sugars.


    One can of regular soda contains about 140 calories of added sugar. That's about 7% of the daily calories of someone eating 2,000 calories a day, Yang says.

After the weekly review of the week, host Kasaun Henry introduces Part 3 of the “Black Lives Series.” On this episode, Kasaun discusses how black culture is not only something people inherit, but that it is also something that people choose.

Some of these are, black identity, black solidarity, black culture and its triumphs and flaws, black education, incarceration, leadership and more.
