OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“WALK IN LOVE”
A new commandment i give unto you, that ye love one another; as i have loved you, that ye also love one another John 13:34

Dear Readers, here is another exciting sub Post from the Topic Healthy Eating Part 8 “How Carbohydrate-Rich Food Is Essential To The Body”

Carbohydrate is seen as the culprits behind the epidemic of diabetes and obesity by many people.

One of the major misconception is that carbohydrate-rich food contain too much sugar and its harmful to the body.
The truth is that, the sugar deposited in the plant food is a natural sugar or simple sugar and not the processed sugar.
The sugar derive from plant food rich in carbohydrate is the best and its suitable for the body cell.
Besides, the supposed harm of carbohydrate-rich foods are created by man rather than what is suppose to be inherited naturally from this plant foods invariably, what many people consumed are refined carbohydrates, which is poisonous to the body cells and tissues thereby creating room for different diseases to occur.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), about 68% of death that occurred in 2008 were attributed to killer diseases such as stroke, heart disease, cancers, type 2 diabetes and obesity for which poor diets were contributing factors but those who live in societies that eat healthy plant-based diets rarely encounter these ailments.

Dr. Frank Shallenberger, M.D also stated that “regular eating of refined carbohydrates can make the liver become insulin resistant and has trouble regulating the level of sugar in the blood system.
As a matter of fact, carbohydrate-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables with medium glycemic index should constitute 50-80% of our daily calorie intake.

REASONS WHY CARBOHYDRATE-RICH FOODS SHOULD BE TAKEN DAILY
1. FOR ENERGY: Carbohydrate-rich foods supply the cell in the body with glucose to produce energy. The brain and the heart never sleep, they need constant supply of glucose derive from carbohydrate-rich foods to function properly.
The brain alone uses about 15-20% of energy in the body while it also uses about 25-30% of inhaled oxygen.

2. FOR FIBRE: The health benefits of high fibre diet can not be over emphasize, especially for the prevention and healing of cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Fibre also act like a cleanser, thereby sweeping metabolic wastes out of the digestive system.
A study publish in nature’s journal obesity, showed that increase in soluble fibre reduce the amount of deep belly fat resistance, fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes.
Specifically, there is no way we can up our fibre intake without increasing the consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods, since its the only source of fibre.

3. PH BALANCE: The human body need about 20% acidic food and 80% alkaline foods to maintain a proper PH balance. It is impossoble to maintain a PH balance with low intake of carbohydrate-rich foods.
Basically, the animal products we consume contain protein and fat, while carbohydrate food plant are the source of healthy alkaline foods to ensure PH balance and proper functions of the body organs.

To be candid, we need to consume much raw foods.
Raw foods contain high percent of unrefined carbohydrate. The only plant foods that can be eaten in raw form are Fruits, some Vegetables, such as Carrot, Cucumbers, Orange, Garden Egg, e.t.c.
There is nothing as good as eating raw food, it is a guaranteed means of maintaining a sound and healthy body.
Raw food restore dead cells, it provide sufficient oxygen and repairs damage tissue in the body.

N/B: Our take home message after reading this article, should be “More Carbohydrate, More Health”.

The rainny season is here again, with cold weather, that gives way to certain disease conditions.
This time of the year is when we always experience an outbreak of cough, catarrh, asthma, fever.
Cold weather can lower body temperature, which makes blood and other body fluids thicker and reduce their circulation.

HEALTHY EATING (PART 6)

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“MAKE ROOM FOR MORE BLESSING”
Revelations 12:11 says, And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony.
Whenever God does something for you, it is important that you testify, because If you don’t testify of what the Lord has done for you, you will lose the chances to do it.
Your testimony endorse your miracle, and creates room for you to receive more blessings from the Lord. So you must continue to testify, for your testimony keeps you permanently above satanic onslaught. Therefore make it as a point of duty to share your testimonies with others.

Today’s post is on

HEALTHY EATING PART 6
Sub-Topic:- “The Effect Of Sugar On Human Health.”
One major draw back of Sugar is the rise of Insulin level that triggers growth hormones which in turn depresses the immune system.

We Have Two Types Of Sugar
1. The refined sugar
2. The natural sugar

Ways Sugar Can Affect Ones Health
1. Sugar suppresses the immune system.
2. Sugar can cause cardiovascular disease.
3. It cause liver cell to divide, thereby increasing the size of the liver.
4. Sugar cause copper deficiency.
5. Sugar can promote tooth decay.
6. It’s a major contributor of diabetes.
7. Sugar contributes to weight gain and obesity.
8. It causes headaches, including migraines.
9. Sugar reduces helpful high density cholesterol (HDLS).
10. It promotes an elevation of harmful cholesterol (LDLS).

I would Only pick few of the ones listed above and explain much about it.

1. SUGAR VS WHITE BLOOD CELLS
The immune system is the body’s protective force against foreign invaders, such as
a. Virus
b. Bacteria
c. Parasites
d. Fungi
e. Toxins e.t.c
A study from the journal dental survey investigated sugar’s effect on bacteria-hungry white blood cell called “Neutrophils”
it was found that consuming 24 Ounces of sugar depresses the white blood cell activity by 50%, this occurs thirty minutes after consumption and last for about 7 hours.
People who consume a lot of sugar are more likely to get bacteria infection than those that avoid sugar.

2. SUGAR VS CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE (HEART DISEASE)
Reasons we do not fully understand, high blood glucose makes it more likely for a person to develop “The Gumming Up” of the arteries that causes heart disease and stroke, the major worldwide killers.
Researchers calculated that raised blood glucose account for 21% of heart disease and 13% of stroke mortality worldwide.
The daily intake of refined sugar should be far less than the required amount of natural sugar inorder to help the heart function well.

3. SUGAR VS THE LIVER
When excess is consume, it eventually affect every organ in the body.
Initially, sugar is stored in the liver inform of glucose, (glycogen) and the liver’s capacity is limited.
The excess sugar stored in the liver makes the liver to be in-active and the cell begin to degenerate, thereby making it to expand like a balloon.

TAKE HOME ADVICE:- Excess Refined Sugar Should Be Avoided, Rather Stick To The Required Amount Of Natural Sugar That Your Body Needs.

Happy Week-end

HEALTHY EATING PART 2

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD

As Children of God born in the likeness of Christ, one of the features of our recreated Human Spirit is Love.
When you have that feature in you, you would’nt judge or slander others.
Never tell stories that will make your hearers dislike those you are talking about, for it is wrong to do that.
Lets take a look at this scripture and see what it talks about, Luke 6:37 it says ” Judge not, and ye shall be judged: Condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. What this scripture is trying to say is that, it is wrong to Condemn and Judge others even when they are not doing the right thing, because when you condemn and judge others God ignores you.
Also you should forgive those who offend you, so that other people you offend may as well forgive you.
So my fellow readers we are to act like Jesus.
Give a good picture about others; don’t be the one to project them in a bad light.
your role is to propagate Love, because today is a very special day that is being set aside to celebrate the birth of Christ.
