Curtis and Nancy Petrey came to visit. They have been in ministry for decades. Obviously, they have lots of awesome testimonies to share. Curtis pulled a picture of Jesus out of his bible and began to share with me how he obtained it. He got it in prison. Here is his testimony.
The idea that a person can be addicted to food has recently gotten more support from science.
Experiments in animals and humans show that, for some people, the same reward and pleasure centers of the brain that are triggered by addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin are also activated by food, especially highly palatable foods. Highly palatable foods are foods rich in:
Like addictive drugs, highly palatable foods trigger feel-good brain chemicals such as dopamine. Once people experience pleasure associated with increased dopamine transmission in the brain's reward pathway from eating certain foods, they quickly feel the need to eat again.
The reward signals from highly palatable foods may override other signals of fullness and satisfaction. As a result, people keep eating, even when they're not hungry.
People who show signs of food addiction may also develop a tolerance to food. They eat more and more, only to find that food satisfies them less and less.
Scientists believe that food addiction may play an important role in obesity. But normal-weight people may also struggle with food addiction. Their bodies may simply be genetically programmed to better handle the extra calories they take in. Or they may increase their physical activity to compensate for overeating.
What is nutrient timing?
Nutrient timing is a planned alteration of macronutrient intake in order to promote health, workout performance, and get/stay lean.
Nutrient timing strategies are based on how the body handles different types of food at different times. One of the most important nutrient timing principles is that it’s best to eat most non-fruit and veggie carbohydrates during and after exercise.
Many factors influence energy balance, with the laws of thermodynamics being the most important determinants of weight gain and weight loss. Yes, this means how much we eat is priority #1 when changing body composition.
But the key here is “body composition.” If we’re losing equal amounts of fat and muscle when losing weight or gaining equal amounts of fat and muscle when gaining weight, we’re not taking advantage of nutrient timing.
Nutrient timing has several important goals:
Nutrient partitioning (where the nutrients go when you ingest them)
Improved body composition
Improved athletic performance
Enhanced workout recovery
Why is nutrient timing so important?
When you exercise regularly, the body is primed for fat gain or fat loss just as it’s primed for muscle gain or muscle loss during specific times of the day. The wrong foods at the wrong times sabotage your efforts in the gym. The right foods at the right times enhance those efforts.
Once we account for energy balance, timing nutrient intake can up-regulate metabolism, shift hormonal profile, and alter body composition.
Manipulating nutrient intake can also help someone take advantage of certain anabolic hormones, namely insulin.
From bulimia and anorexia to fitness role model
As a fitness expert and weight loss consultant who is also a celiac, I get a lot of questions in regards to weight loss, fitness, nutrition and food allergies. I am typically very confident addressing most questions thrown my way. If you want help losing weight, committing to change, or improving your fitness level, I AM your girl! BUT, there is one topic of a very serious nature that I get somewhat frequently that I am just not confident addressing. That topic is eating disorders.
Today, I am sharing with you the story of Alison Burgess. You see, Alison beat both bulimia and anorexia and has gone on to become a fitness role model and competitor. I wanted to share her story in the hopes it will help others.
In Alison’s words:
My story may seem like a textbook case of bulimia / anorexia, but however it comes across, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through and also the GREATEST blessing of my life.
USDA scientists analyzed antioxidant levels in more than 100 different foods, including fruits and vegetables. Each food was measured for antioxidant concentration as well as antioxidant capacity per serving size. Cranberries, blueberries, and blackberries ranked highest among the fruits studied. Beans, artichokes, and Russet potatoes were tops among the vegetables. Pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts ranked highest in the nut category.
USDA chemist Ronald L. Prior says the total antioxidant capacity of the foods does not necessarily reflect their health benefit. Benefits depend on how the food's antioxidants are absorbed and utilized in the body. Still, this chart should help consumers trying to add more antioxidants to their daily diet.
How Antioxidants Help Prevent Oxidation
As oxygen interacts with cells of any type - an apple slice or, in your body, the cells lining your lungs or in a cut on your skin -- oxidation occurs. This produces some type of change in those cells. They may die, such as with rotting fruit. In the case of cut skin, dead cells are replaced in time by fresh, new cells, resulting in a healed cut.
This birth and death of cells in the body goes on continuously, 24 hours a day. It is a process that is necessary to keep the body healthy. "Oxidation is a very natural process that happens during normal cellular functions," researcher Jeffrey Blumberg, PhD, professor of nutrition at Tufts University in Boston, tells WebMD.
Yet there is a downside. "While the body metabolizes oxygen very efficiently, 1% or 2% of cells will get damaged in the process and turn into free radicals," he says.

Tonight I will be interviewing Curtis Smith, here is a little information about him:
Curtis R. Smith is an accomplished writer, performer, and creative visionary. After writing and releasing his first book of award winning poetry in 2006, Curtis went into the studio and wrote and recorded his debut music album, In This Moment. His effort earned him the distinction of Songwriter of the Year and a nomination for Album of the Year. Aside from his written works, Curtis’ stage persona has wowed fans, and his music has entertained through the years. Currently, he is working on new book material and preparing work for his second album. Curtis resides in St. Louis, Missouri.
A crash diet isn't a good weight loss solution, as crash diets carry a number of health risks, not to mention you're almost guaranteed to gain back all the weight you lost once you go off the diet. Here are some reasons why fad diets, starvations diets and other crash diet plans are a bad idea, even if they really do help you lose weight fast.
How Crash Diets Work
Crash diets often appear to be working after only a few days. These fad diets shock your body, sending it into starvation mode. You'll experience rapid weight loss, but you're not actually losing any fat; instead, you're using your body's stored supply of the carbohydrate glycogen. As your body burns glycogen, you lose water as well, making it seem as though you're losing a lot of weight.
Emotional Side Effects of Crash Diets
Crash dieting tends to make dieters moody. You'll feel irritable, tired and lethargic, because your body isn't getting the nutrients it needs to make energy. You'll also have food cravings because you won't be getting the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function. Crash dieting can even lead to depression and eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia.
Crash diet plans might claim that special combinations of foods can help you lose weight. The truth is, no special combination of food can raise your metabolism to help you lose weight. Only exercise can raise your metabolism to help you burn more calories.
Why should I make healthy food choices?
Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients to your body. These nutrients give you energy and keep your heart beating, your brain active, and your muscles working.
Nutrients also help build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons and also regulate body processes, such as blood pressure.
Good nutrition can lower your risk of developing a range of chronic diseases. For example, eating more fruit and vegetables can help lower blood pressure and may lower your risk of certain types of cancer (such as colorectal, breast, lung and prostate cancer). Eating less saturated fat may also lower your risk of heart disease.
Healthy eating can also help people that already have some types of disease or illness such as diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure. And, of course, improving your eating habits will contribute to you achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
Try to achieve a balance with the foods you eat and include lots of variety and remember, all things in moderation.
Total workout time for week 1 (per day): 45 mins. Calories burned (per day): 300-350
Total cardio time: 30 mins
For your body to start burning fat, your heart rate needs to get to more than 125 beats per minute. Track it with a heart rate monitor (Rs 2,000-Rs 6,000). Most treadmills these days are fitted with an inbuilt heart rate monitor.
Week 2 Beginner II
The pattern remains the same in week 2 but intensity increases by few minutes or reps.
Total workout time for week 2 (per day): 1 hour Calories burned (per day): 400-450
Total cardio time: 40 mins Follow same pattern of walking as in week 1 for the first 30 mins. Warm up for 5 mins at a comfortable speed of 6 kmph. Alternating between slow and fast — after every two, three or four minutes — choose speeds of 7 kmph and 8.5 kmph, respectively. After walking for 30 mins, run for 10.
Total cardio time: 25 mins Same as week one, except you are now doing 8-10 sprints of 100 metre each.
Total cardio time: 40 minutes Same as week one, but alternate between slow and fast speeds of 25 and 35 kmph, respectively, after every 2 mins for half an hour. Post that, cycle at your best capacity for 10 mins continuously.
