A review of a few popular products from the Herbalife range, and an interview with Dr Carel le Roux who discusses plant proteins, sucralose and the health benefits of Aloe gel.
The next time you start grumbling about chilly weather or the fact that it’s now pitch black when you leave the office, think of Denmark. There, the sun isn’t coming up until nearly 8:40 AM, and it’s all but gone by 3:30 in the afternoon. And during January and February, the thermometer rarely makes it above freezing.Danish people know full well that winter is a long, hard slog. But instead of letting it get them down—or just going into hibernation mode for five months—they have something called hygge (pronounced hoo-guh).
Discussing toilet habits is a taboo subject for many people. It shouldn´t be, it may save your life!!
I recently had a real scare, where I was passing black stools, and had severe dizziness. Turns out I had a duodenal ulcer, (no prior knowledge), which was bleeding quite profusely. In a short amount of time I lost a SIGNIFICANT amount of blood!
Hospital emergency treatment, ongoing supervision & medications , and I am on the mend.
The majority of people go to the bathroom, do their business and that is that. But it would actually be better for many people if they check up at what they are leaving behind – or flushing, because it can give us a clear insight into our health. Knowing this can save your life!
QUICK FACTS ABOUT FAECES
When you defecate , the little brown blob in your toilet is what is left of the food after your body has absorbed all the nutrients from it.
Defecating is crucial for your health, it is your body’s natural way of expelling the waste that does not need. The look and the smell of the faeces can give you clues to what is happening inside your body.
The food you consume usually takes 1-3 days from the time you eat it till it ends up in your poop.
Faeces is made up of bacteria, undigested food, dead cells, and mucus.
Healthy poop sinks slowly.
How often should you go?
People go once or twice a day, but some might go more or less. As per doctors there is no normal frequency, so while you are comfy, you are fine.
How do you keep your gut healthy?
Have an eating regimen rich in fibre (20-25g), drink lots of water and do regular exercise.
If you have problems with pooping, dietary fibre can help you.
The proper hydration helps ensure your colon is slippery enough for the poop to move through.
TEXTURES OF POOP
Type 1 – Separate hard lumps, like nuts
You should drink more water and eat some fruits and vegetables. You are lacking fibre and fluids.
Type 2 – Sausage- shaped but lumpy
It is not serious, but you should load up on fluids and fibre.
Type 3 – Sausage-shaped but with cracks on surface
Well, this is normal, but the cracks indicate that you should still up your intake of water.
Type 4 – Sausage-shaped, smooth and soft
This is a sign that you are doing fine
Type 5 – Soft blobs with clear-cut edges
This is normal if you are pooping multiple times a day.
Type 6 – Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool
This type of poop is on the edge of normal, it is on its way to become diarrhoea.
Type 7 – Watery, no solid pieces, all liquid
This is a case of diarrhoea. It is probably caused by some sort of infection. You should drink more liquids in order to replace the liquids lost, or if you do not do this you may find yourself dehydrated.
SHADE OF POOP
If your poop is brown, then you are fine. Poop is brown due to the bile produced in your liver.
Maybe you have eaten a lot of green leafy veggies or green food colouring. The food might be going through your large intestine too quickly.
Blood-stained or red
If you see blood in your poop, it can be a symptom of cancer. ALWAYS See a doctor if you find blood in your stool.
This type of poop indicates excess fat. This is because of mal-absorption disorder like celiac disease.
Light coloured, white or clay coloured
This could mean a bile duct obstruction. It can be caused by some medicines. You should see a doctor.
This means that you are bleeding internally, because of ulcer or cancer. It may also be caused by some vitamins that contain iron or bismuth subsalicylate. You should see a doctor if you are worried about this.
I hope this info is useful. Checking when I did almost certainly saved me from needing a blood transfusion, or worse!!!!
Muscle does NOT weigh more than fat but it occupies less volume so you look smaller
When you have the right diet, you may gain weight in the form of muscle – so whilst scales may stay the same or even go up this is actually good news
More muscle means your clothes will be looser, you’ll drop clothes sizes, be stronger and leaner, your metabolism is raised and you can then eat more =RESULT!
Diets that don’t focus on building lean muscle won’t work for long, as if your body is not not fuelled correctly you will lose muscle mass, lower your metabolism, and in the long term gain more weight!
I can convert my fat to muscle:
LIKEWISE you cannot turn fat into muscle, they are two different bodily tissues but you will shed fat whilst gaining muscle this is how that works!
Don’t be scared of weights or protein, you will NOT turn into a bodybuilders physique these folks do some serious training and eating so don’t worry about “bulking up” it WONT happen if you don’t want it too
So eat that protein, drink that shake and lift those weights for that lean figure

In 2010, New York photographer Sally Davies put a McDonald’s hamburger and fries in a jar. Five months later, the food still looked edible while KFC fries bought and stored on the same day were white and furry with mould. Marion Nestle, chair of NYU’s food studies program, told Salon that McDonald’s would have to use “a lot of sodium propionate* to prevent bacterial or mold growth.” Davies continues to take photos of the same meal and post them on her website; as of July 2015, it has not noticeably disintegrated.
Chemically synthesized sodium propionate is most commonly used as a preservative in the food industry. It prevents the growth of mould and some bacteria, thereby prolonging the shelf life of packaged baked goods. According to the Code of Federal Regulations, sodium propionate is generally recognised as safe when used as a food additive. It is also used to prevent mould growth in packaged and processed cheese products.
So a question: If mould and bacteria don’t want to consume it, why would we feed it to our family?
It´s a scam, it´s a pyramid, you´ll lose money…… How many times do you hear this from people who have not actually done any research ?
With a massive increase in Network Marketing companies in the world, there is a lot of bad stigma surrounding the industry..
Like us, a lot of people join this business to create more time and money and build a better future. Some people master this industry and become self made millionaires after hard work, commitment and sacrifices.
In fact, the company I’m partnered with have been in operation for 35 years, are FULL members of MULTIPLE Direct Selling Associations (and comply with their rules and guidelines), AND they help create new millionaires regularly.
Others join this business after seeing some positive results & they want to earn an extra £300-500 a month… Simply by sharing a health product. They do it in their own time using social media or word of mouth… And if you made an average of £500 a month… That´s £6000 a year. Now, how often do you get a £6000 annual pay rise in your normal job?
The narrow-minded people (very often unsuccessful) will come up with the same old bullshit… “It’s a pyramid scheme, it’s a con… You get paid!” No shit Sherlock… Of course I get paid!
Pyramids are illegal and are based on taking advantage of people. For a person to actually make money in a pyramid scheme, someone else has to lose money.
But in Network Marketing, each person can multiply his or her efforts, skills and talents by helping others be successful.
Network marketing isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. Our business or success didn’t happen overnight, and we still work every day. We are very disciplined with our business and wake up every day knowing what we have to do to succeed at this. Working from home, and trading in over 90 countries, you have to treat it like a business and be willing to follow advice from others who have made it.
Network marketing is a low-overhead, home based business that can actually offer people a way out and help you create the lifestyle you want.
So next time you have a dig at someone for trying to do something positive with their life or build a better future for their family… Just maybe, you should have a look at your own life.
BUILD YOUR FORTUNE, NOT SOMEONE ELSE’S.
Contact us today to join my team, no hidden costs, no gimmicks.
Just genuine people who want to change their future and follow their dreams!
I was told to lose 20 pounds before I started school in the fall.
It is a sad fact of life that, in many professions, people are viewed as “fat”, based on another persons perception of the body. How many times have we seen super thin models or dancers, and heard stories of these people not eating, or even eating paper to fill themselves up….
These professions, and many more, NEED proper nutrition to fuel the working day.
It is good that companies and certain countries have now recognised that there is an issue, and are dealing with it (BBC News Article).
