How Healthy Is Your Kidney?

Recently, a popular and talented singer, songwriter and music producer was diagnosed of kidney failure and required a transplant which was estimated at over N10million. He cried out to friends and foes to donate to save his life. As at the time of writing this report, he was already back from abroad where the transplant was carried out. this is not an isolated case.

Over 300 million people worldwide suffer from chronic kidney disease according to the World Health Organization (WHO), and sadly in 2012 alone over 3million people died of kidney related problems.  Let us come back home to Nigeria, what is it like?

Currently, it is estimated that over 36 million Nigerians are suffering from various stages of kidney disease. According to Dr. Ebun Bamboye, a renowned Nephrologist Consultant, 1 in every 7 Nigerians is at one stage or another of kidney failure. That is totally unacceptable!

What is Kidney?

Your kidneys are 2 bean-shaped organs, as shown in the picture. Despite the fact that the kidneys are small organs by weight, they receive approximately 20% of the blood pumped by the heart. Blood flows to your kidneys, then they process the blood by removing the toxins and wastes, the processed and purified blood is then sent back to the body whereas the toxins are flushed away from your body through urine. Urine then flows from the kidneys through the ureters into the bladder. In the bladder, the urine is stored until it is excreted from the body through the urethra. That is the natural flow.

Without the kidneys, waste products and toxins would accumulate in the body up to a level that they become dangerous to your body. However, there are basic factors that can affect the functioning of the kidney – 1) Toxic buildup, 2) unhealthy eating habits and 3) medications. These can lead to the kidney becoming inflamed, infected, and develop kidney stones or outright kidney failure.

Functions of the Kidney

The kidney is such an important organ considering its various functions as listed below:

  1. Regulates the composition of your blood;
  2. Keep constant the concentrations of various ions and other important substances;
  3. Regulates the volume of water in your body;
  4. Eliminate wastes from your body (eg. urea, drugs, toxic substances);
  5. Help regulate your blood pressure;
  6. Stimulate the production of red blood cells;
  7. Maintains your body’s calcium levels.

The kidneys must also remove waste, uric acid, and ammonia from the body. That’s why your first urination in the morning is usually darker in color and has a stronger odor , because while you were asleep, the kidney was busy collecting the toxins for elimination.

Apart from its natural functions, our modern lifestyle has put more burden on the kidney. We eat more animal fats, more protein, and more refined sugars and processed foods. That’s why Nigerians are developing kidney diseases 10 times more frequently than our grandparents from previous generations.

Habits that can lead to Kidney problem:

Our modern lifestyle promotes and aids all kinds of diseases people are suffering today, which includes kidney disease. Below are some of the faulty habits that may damage your kidney:

- Excessive alcohol and soft drinks consumption

- Not emptying your bladder when there is a need to

- Not drinking enough water

- Eating a high-protein diet

- Eating too much processed/refined foods

- Prolonged use of medication

- Not resting sufficiently

What is Chronic Kidney Disease?

It is the gradual loss of the functions of the kidney over time, which is primarily the elimination of waste and excess water from the body. This is usually caused by high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity and unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking, excessive alcohol intake.

Chronic kidney disease is also called silent killer because the symptoms are not usually obvious.

Some of the Symptoms are:

  • headache
  • persistent vomiting,
  • facial puffiness,
  • hiccups,
  • dry skin
  • fatigue
  • loss of Appetite
  • unexplained weight loss
  • sleep disorder
  • low libido

At the extreme case, the kidneys are no longer able to eliminate toxins and excess water from the body. At this stage the person will require dialysis to filter waste out of their blood or get a kidney transplant.

Dialysis or kidney transplant are not cheap. On the average, a session of dialysis cost N25,000.00 and its done at least three times a week, so we are talking of about N75,000 per week. Do you have that kind of money?  Now come to talk of kidney transplant, that alone cost about N8million.

Looking at the cost implications of treating kidney disease, you will agree with me that prevention is better than cure. It is a course of wisdom to maintain our kidney.

Your kidneys need maintenance and cleansing.

Kidney damage usually takes place gradually and without symptoms and it may only be after years of kidney disease that kidney functioning becomes noticeably decreased. In kidney disease one can generally lose more up to 75% of kidney functions before the effects become acutely obvious.

How can you maintain your kidney?

There are two basic ways the kidney can be maintained:

1)    healthy eating and change in lifestyle

2)    detoxification

Healthy lifestyle

You need to avoid any lifestyle that could put your kidney under unnecessary burden, creating additional work for the kidneys. To achieve this, you need to follow these steps:

-          Reduce alcohol consumption,

-          Stop smoking,

-          Do not abuse drugs such as pain killers and antibiotics

-          Avoid the use of do not use bleaching creams.

-          Avoid processed foods.

-          Eat more of fruits and vegetables.

-          Reduce your weight if you are already overweight

-          Be physically active

-          If you are in doubt see your doctor

Kidney Health Boosting Vegetables

However, to prevent kidney failure, some fruits and vegetables have been identified by dieticians, nutritionists and naturopaths that can help boost kidney function and lower blood pressure and glucose, which are two of the major causes of kidney damage.

The kidney health boosting vegetables include:

-          cabbage,

-          beetroot,

-          lettuce,

-          scent leave(nchuanwu in ibo and effirin in Yoruba)

-          bitter leaf

-          cucumber,

-          watermelon

-          ginger

Detoxification

Detox is a cleansing process with fruits and vegetables recipes. Detoxification is an all-natural kidney-support and maintenance culture. It is designed to help cleanse the body of toxic overload and its natural function, thereby minimizing your chance of developing kidney related problems.

Reasons why you may want to do a kidney detox:

  1. You’re feeling fatigued or more tired than usual.
  2. You feel pain in your kidneys after eating certain foods (or processed “phoods”).
  3. You’re experiencing skin problems like eczema, acne or rashes.
  4. You have a hormonal imbalance or feel extra moody.
  5. You’ve had kidney stones in the past.
  6. You’re experiencing weight gain and bloating.
  7. You have frequent or infrequent bladder problems or UTI’s.

Almost anyone can benefit from doing a kidney cleanse. Throughout history, humans have always used fasting or cleansing as a way to detoxify not only the physical body, but the emotional body as well. If you’re already in good health, then doing a yearly kidney cleanse can be a gentle form of prevention for you.

Regular body detox will help you to maintain a healthy kidney and also total change in your lifestyle – eating healthy foods, that means less processed foods, less alcohol intake and stop smoking.

Drink Green Tea To Lose Weight

Green tea is produced from Camellia sinensis plant, the same tree where Black tea and Oolong tea are produced. Green tea, black tea and oolong tea are all produced from the same Camellia sinensis plant but using different methods.

The fresh leaves from the plant are fermented to get black tea and oolong tea while it is steamed to produce green tea.

Green tea contains B vitamins, folate (naturally occurring folic acid), manganese, potassium, magnesium, caffeine and a powerful antioxidant call catechins.

Green Tea Help Burns Fat

A recent study that appeared in the January issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that that people who drank a bottle of tea fortified with green tea extract every day for three months lost more body fat than those who drank a bottle of regular oolong tea.

Researchers say the results indicate that substances found in green tea known as catechins may trigger weight loss by stimulating the body to burn calories and decreasing body fat.

Green tea is very rich in a type of polyphenols called catechins. These substances have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties, but also affect the way the body accumulate fat and cholesterol levels.

A study was conducted on 35 Japanese men to examine the effects of catechins on body fat reduction and weight loss. The men had similar weightsand waist sizes and they were shared into two groups, and for three months, the one group drank a bottle of oolong tea fortified with green tea extract containing 690 milligrams of catechins, and the other group drank a bottle of oolong tea with 22 milligrams of catechins.

Within this period they were all given similar breakfast and dinner. After three months, the study showed that the men who drank the green tea extract lost more weight and experienced a significantly greater decrease in BMI, waist size, and total body fat.

According to researcher Tomonori Nagao of Health Care Products Research Lab in Tokyo,

“These results suggest that catechins contribute to the prevention of and improvement in various lifestyle-related diseases, particularly obesity,”

In another study, involving 240 men and women that went on for 12 weeks, the green tea group had significant decreases in body fat percentage, body weight, waist circumference and abdominal fat. It is particularly effective at reducing the dangerous abdominal fat.

However, I’d like to point out that some studies on green tea don’t show any increase in fat loss, so the effect may depend on the individual.

 Green Tea Boost Metabolism.

Another way green tea helps you to lose weight is that it stimulates your body’s metabolism and speed up weight loss.

The antioxidant, catechins together with the caffeine that is found in green tea, stimulates the central nervous system and releases fat into the blood stream, so that the body can use the fat as fuel.

This process of using fat as fuel is known as thermogenesis, and it involves the production of extra energy, the shedding of excess water and the burning of body fat. Given that green tea can boost the metabolic rate in the short term, it makes sense that it could help you lose weight.

Improves Endurance during Exercise.

Remember exercise remains one of the most effective ways to lose weight. In fact every healthy weight programs involves exercise. Exercise burns calories, enhances energy levels and contributes greatly to muscle building, which will boost your metabolism.

Green tea will stimulate your muscle cells and liver to use more fatty acids. As a result, your body will use carbohydrates at a slower rate. With more carbohydrates remaining in your body, you can exercise for a longer period of time, and your body will burn more calories.

Green Tea and Your Health

Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet. It is loaded with ntioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other incredible benefits due to its high content of flavonoids and powerful antioxidant called catechins.

According to Harvard Health Publications, catechins have shown to be more powerful than vitamins C and E in stopping oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other strong immune boosting and cancer-fighting characteristics.

What Quantity Should Be Taken a Day?

It is advisable you drink only two or three cups per day and that will yield good result. Too much of every thing is bad and because some people are desperate to lose weight especially without doing any form of exercise they overindulge in anything they hear that can help burn fat.

In view of that, take note of the side effects of green tea in the next subheading.

Side Effects of Green Tea

According WebMD report, Green tea is likely safe for most people for short-term use. In some people, it can lead to stomach upset and constipation. It has also been reported to cause liver problems in rare cases.

Please note that too much green tea is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. These side effects can range from mild to serious and include headache, nervousness, sleep problems, vomiting, diarrhea, irritability, irregular heartbeat, tremor, and heartburn. Drinking very high doses of green tea can actually be fatal.

You can now see why some people die from drinking certain slimming teas. Let us be careful.

Precaution:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, green tea in small amounts maybe safe. Do not drink more than 2 cups a day of green tea. Overdoes of green tea during pregnancy is linked to an increased risk of miscarriage and other negative effects.

Don’t drink an excessive amount of green tea if you are breast-feeding, because caffeine passes into breast milk and can affect your child.

If you are having any health challenge such as HBP, diabetes, heart problem, glaucoma, liver disease and weak bones, drinking green tea may not be SAFE for you. You can seek more clarification from your Doctor.

Conclusion

It is clear that green tea can help you burn fat and lose weight but in a very slow pace. It will be most useful to maintain a healthy weight, and it can also bring lots of other benefits to your body.

However, if you want to lose 4-12kg in a short time, green tea is not the best option for you.

Palm Oil: A Healthy Cooking Oil

There exist these misconceptions about Red Palm Oil. You read it everywhere, especially on weight loss Blogs: Palm oil is fattening; Palm is not good for your health and stuffs like that that will make you take to your heel at the sight of red palm oil.

But come to think of it, is it the same red palm oil that has been part of the human diet for over 5,000 years? What suddenly made palm oil that bad? Red palm oil did not kill our forefathers instead they were healthier than our present generation, lived longer years and never experienced the overweight epidemic of our time. I want us to appreciate the fact that palm oil did not pose any health problem including weight issues to them.

What is palm oil?

Red palm oil is obtained from the fruit of the oil palm tree when it is ripe. It is harvested and milled to extract the red oil called palm oil. It is natural, no chemicals and no preservatives. Purely from nature!

Palm oil is the best cooking oil notwithstanding the misconceptions that it causes cholesterol problem.  Compared to other fats, palm oil is far superior in nutrient content and cooking properties. It is used in cooking foods like Egwusi soup, Banga soup, Okra Soup, vegetable soup, beans, rice, porridge yam, moi moi, and many more. Is there anything you can cook without palm oil? Very few if at all! It is also used in frying.

Palm oil contains saturated and unsaturated fats, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. It contains 15 times more beta carotenes than carrots and 300 times more than tomatoes. Due to the inherent carotenes, the oil has a distinct flavour. A good quality red palm oil will have mild, savory tastes that will enhance the flavour of your foods.

Palm oil is also used industrially for manufacturing cosmetics, soaps, toothpaste, waxes, lubricants, and ink.

I personally enjoy eating palm oil mostly with roasted yam, garnished with fresh pepper, onions and other spices- very sweet!

Health Benefits of Red Palm oil:

Despite its high saturated fat content a study published in the British Journal of Biomedical Science (2009), suggested that the level of saturated fat content in palm oil did not promote the development of clots in the arteries because of the high presence of antioxidants like tocotrienols, tocopherols, vitamin E and beta-carotene,  which fight diseases.

Also the American Palm Oil Council states that in animal studies, one of these antioxidants (tocotrienols) has demonstrated tumor fighting properties and may have the ability to reverse artery blockage and blood clotting. These benefits are important as they reduce the risk of stroke and improve blood pressure.

The rich red color of palm oil indicates the presence of carotenoids, compounds found in vitamin A and known to improve the immune system and vision. I recall in our early school days, our teacher told us that palm oil is good for good eye sight, no wonder our forefathers were not using glasses, even at old age they were seeing clearly unlike our generation were kids start wearing glasses even from womb.

The higher level of antioxidants of palm oil also makes it a powerful natural weapon against cancer by reducing tumour growth by blocking free radicals that promote cancer.

Palm oil is used for preventing vitamin A deficiency, cancer, brain disease, aging, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and cyanide poisoning. Unlike most other oils, red palm oil contains a high level of heart-healthy medium chain triglycerides (MCT).

Palm Oil and Weight Loss:

The ugly truth about palm oil is that it helps you to lose weight. The special fatty acids in palm oil help your weight loss efforts by providing energy and by supporting your body’s natural metabolic fat burning processes.

Red Palm Oil is easily metabolized by the liver and promotes greater energy and burns more calories.

Go ahead and substitute your cooking oils with this powerful oil so you can begin improving your health, dropping unwanted fat, and even improve your skin!

Precaution:

According to a WedMD report; Palm oil is safe when consumed in amounts found in foods. However, you are advised not to consume too much palm oil, more than what you have in your food if:
* You are pregnant or breast-feeding.

* You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks because Palm oil might increase the risk of bleeding.

Conclusion

This article was not intended to argue with the studies that demonstrate that saturated fats are not good to overall health. However, I strongly believe that that people living in the tropical areas have enjoyed palm oil for centuries and not suffered the detriments of heart disease and stroke. Our forefathers enjoyed palm oil and never suffered from the modern lifestyles diseases we are battling with in our generation.

It is very clear that our health challenges are not from eating natural foods like palm oil but we are suffering from the effect of adopting the “western” diet and lifestyle.   Our naturally God given foods are safe and healthy. It is the junk foods, sedentary lifestyle and toxins that are making us fat and sick.

For those who preach that we should eliminate palm oil from our African foods should not forget that it will change the taste of the dish, the color and the culture of our food.  I believe the benefits of having palm oil in our diets by far outweigh the risks if at all it does exist.

Having said that, MODERATION IS KEY!  Too much of everything is not good.

Finally, if you want to get a flatter belly, lose 4-15kgs of excess body fat, get glowing skin and boundless energy? Then I recommend the Body Detox Secret to you.

I read an article recently online that talked about how to disguise a big belly.

The poster suggested that there is no immediate magic to banish the stomach fat, therefore the only solution is to dress cleverly to disguise a big belly.

Instead of the poster to offer solutions to the problem, he advised the reader to disguise his belly fat and move on with his life. People are dying from belly fat complications, losing their spouses and living in despair due to being wrongly informed.

Majors Mistakes People Make:

1: Wearing Big/flowing Clothes: Some people make the mistake of wearing big clothes to hide their big tummy because fitted wears will highlight every fat contour you have  Unfortunately that is what many people are doing. Instead of working on eliminating the belly fat, they spend money buying ‘camouflage’ in big gowns, trousers, and shirts all to hide their big tummy. Fine, when you pull your clothes, how do you feel? Who is deceiving who?

I once made that mistake; I wore ‘Coat’ instead of ‘Suit’. You will not know how good it feels to wear fitted clothes until you lose your belly fat. It feels great and you will be happy with yourself. You will look beautiful, smart, younger and attractive.

2. Use of Belly Girdle: Belly bands are very expensive yet some women and even men resort to using it to hide their “big belly”. Imagine the discomfort you are giving yourself. What if a man falls in love with you because of your artificial flat tummy, what happens when he discovers that the flat tummy that attracted him to you is fake?  It is a very expensive mistake people make just to hide their belly fat.

3: Use of Big Belts. Some chose to wear belts on the midsection to disguise their belly fat.

These are some of the major mistakes people with big tummy make and I don’t know if you are one of them, if you are, please STOP!.

Now let me tell you this:

  • Taking those wrong advices from friends and fashion magazines will not give you a flatter belly. It’s just a camouflage.
  • Spending hours in the Gym sweating it out will not give you flatter belly.
  • Starving yourself will not give you a flatter belly
  • Consuming slimming teas/pills will not give you a flatter belly

What you need is a proven system like the one I have used to help over 300 Nigerian men and women to get a flat belly and lose excess body fat.

Let me share this testimony I got yesterday from one of those that worked with my advice. It is from Goke, for privacy reasons I’m leaving out her surname.  She followed the One Day Meal Plan I advised my readers recently and see what she has to say after 3 days:

 “Yes, i tried it ,  my hubby was not around during those 3 days i tried it. The most amazing thing was his first comment when he came back and checking his baby out. Guess what! He said you now got a slimmer tommy, without telling him am on any meal plan. Another interesting confession was that he took me out for lunch on sun” ‘Goke.

Can you see the joy of having flat belly in the family? The first thing the hubby observed was her slimmer tummy. The hubby was so excited that he had to take her out for lunch. He was proud to go out with his wife because of her new look.

This is another testimony from one of those who registered on my Weight Loss Program:

“hello Harry, I finally braced up and started the cleansing process though i must confess i didnt adhere to it 100% but I can give myself 80%. Today is the 6th day and when i climbed the scale I have already lost 7kg  from 134kg to 127kg. I will continue until I achieve myideal weight. Akpan”

 This lady admitted she did not strictly follow the program, still  on the 6th day of the program she lost 7kg eating fat burning meals.

In the last part of this Belly Fat Series, which I will send to you on Thursday, February 06, 2014, I will reveal to you the exact program I used to lose 12kg of excess body fat and drop 3inches off my waistline. The same program over 200 Nigerian men and women have used to get back to shape.

It is a proven program, 100% natural, the quickest and easiest way to burn belly fat and lose excess body fat.

The same program used by the lady in the testimony above. I call it The Belly Fat Loss Magic Bullet.

Don’t miss the final part of the Belly Fat Series.

 

Belly Fat Series – Part 2 (of 4)

At some point, I thought that having a big tummy was a sign of good living; little did I know that it was actually dangerous for my health.

In the Belly Fat Series – Part 2, we are going to look at the dangers of belly fat in men and women. It is absolutely important  you know the dangers associated with belly fat – that alone will move you to do all it takes to eliminate your belly fat at all cost.

According to the President of American Heart Association, Robert Eckel, MD, “A big waistline puts you at increased risk for many health problems — diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke,”

You will notice too that there are people who are not overweight but have belly fat. Belly fat also know as visceral fat is a serious business because it has direct effect on your internal organs, and that puts you at a very high risk health wise.

The Dangers of Belly Fat

Belly fat is not just there to give you ugly look; it is very active according to researches. It is described as an active “organ” in your body — one that churns out hormones and inflammatory substances.

Look at the scary way Prof. Lewis Kuller, MD explains how belly fat ruins your life gradually:Belly Fat in Women

“Abdominal fat break down easily into fatty acids, which flow directly into the liver and into muscle,” When these excess fatty acids drain into the liver, they trigger a chain reaction of changes — increasing the production of LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol and triglycerides. During this time insulin can also become less effective in controlling blood sugar, so insulin resistance sets in

At that point, blood sugars start to get out of balance. Fats and clots get into the bloodstream, and that sets the stage for diabetes, heart disease, and more.

He went further to say that:

abdominal fat triggers a change in angiotensin, a hormone that controls blood vessel constriction — increasing the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack’

Belly fat is far more dangerous than buttocks, hips, thighs and arms fats.

Belly fat leads to the under listed health challenges:

-          Erectile dysfunction (weak erection)

-          High Blood Pressure

-          Diabetes

-          Heart Disease

-          Breast Cancer

-          Kidney and Liver failure

-          Infertility

-          Stroke

-          Fatigue

Besides the health implications of belly fat, it also has its own social implications: when you have a big tummy:

-          It gives you an ugly shape and makes you unattractive to your mate(that can lead to infidelity)

-          You don’t feel proud to undress before your spouse

-          Your dress style will be altered

-          You cant look at full-length mirror with pride

-          You become unproductive in your business and job

-          You cant run with your children

-          You cant go swimming

-          You cant wear bra that fits

-          You cant wear fitted clothes

-          You occupy a larger space in the car, air plane etc

-          You lack self confidence

-          Embarrassing comments like ‘orobo’, are you pregnant?

-          It can ruin your marriage

-          You spend much buying things like belly girdle

-          You wont be proud to visit amusement parks

-          You cant easily bend down to work on your nails or tie your shoes

Looking at the health and social implications of belly fat and being overweight, you will agree with me that belly fat is not a blessing but is more of a ‘Time-Bomb’ ticking away gradually.

But not to worry, we are going to detonate the bomb(belly fat) before it will explode. I have helped a lot of Nigerian men and women to get a flatter belly and lose excess body fat.

You can read the testimony of one of them called Seun, she used my weight loss program to lose 5kg of belly fat:

================================

Hi Harry,
I have reduced drastically, I used to weigh 64 before but after the fruit and protein diet I placed myself on I weigh 59 now, I have lost 5kg already and  I haven’t started the exercise yet, belly fat gone. Thanks so much.  Seun’

==================================

Meanwhile, before I show you how to get a flatter belly; in the Part 3 of the Belly Fat series, we shall look at some mistakes people make in trying to get a flat belly.

All that will be exposed in the next Belly Fat Series – Part 3.

Main Causes of Belly Fat

If you are a woman, Is your tummy like the one in the picture below?

If you are a man, is your tummy like this in the picture below?

Weight Loss in NigeriaIn this series, you will discover the major causes of belly fat.

Old age could contribute to an expanding waistline. For women, this can be especially true after menopause or childbirth, when body fat tends to shift to the abdomen. An increase in belly fat can do more than make it difficult for you to zip up your jeans and look ugly and shapeless as you can see in the pictures above. Belly fat is the warehouse of serious health risks. But the good news is that the threats posed by belly fat can be completely eliminated. You will discover how to eliminate belly fat and keep it off forever at the end of this series.

The simple explanation for weight gain, either in your belly or any other part of your body is largely determined by how you balance the calories you eat with the energy you burn. If you eat too much and exercise too little, you’re likely to gain weight – including belly fat.

For instance, if you consume 1500 calories a day and you burn only 1000 calories through physical activities same day, you have excess 500 calories. What happens is that the excess 500 calories would be converted to fat. This is just the explanation why you have belly fat, are overweight or obese – you are consuming more calories than you burn.

However, researches have shown that there are other leading causes of excess belly fat in men and women.

We have two types of body Fat.

They are Subcutaneous fat and Visceral fat.

Subcutaneous Fat: This fat is visible to the eye because it is located just underneath your skin. In fact the name subcutaneous means – beneath the skin. While excess subcutaneous fat can certainly accumulate in the belly area, Weight Loss In Nigeriasubcutaneous  is about 80% of all body fat.

When you pinch your stomach, that excess flesh you can hold with your hand, there lies the subcutaneous fat. Excess subcutaneous fat is very ugly and also poses health risks to you.

Visceral Fat: Visceral fat on the other hand is the unseen fat that lies deep within the body, surrounding your organs and is often very solid and hard. Though both fats are unhealthy, visceral fat appears to be more dangerous with greater risk factors such as stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, hormone imbalances, cancer and even sleep apnea. As visceral fat increases, it literally stifles your organs. As fat increases, it compresses the arteries and veins, interfering with blood flow.

Excess tummy fat causes your belly to bulge, giving you the feeling of a hard stomach as it builds up beneath your abdominal muscle wall, crammed in among your organs. It is not only damaging to your health but also gives you an ugly shape. As if that is not enough, belly fat is the most difficult fat to lose.

Now let us discuss the major causes of belly fat in men and especially in women.

Cause of Belly Fat #1.Stress:  People are living  a fast-paced life today. Both the rich and the poor. Check your daily schedule, look at your friends, family members,children, colleagues, in the market or office and you may notice that they’re always rushing to get from one place to the next because they’re constantly scheduled for the next work or social event, meeting, or sporting practice. It may feel as though you can never just sit and relax for a minute. Hence,people are often stressed up. In fact people live with stress.

When you pass through stress, your body releases a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that the adrenal gland secretes in response to stress. It is classified as a glucocorticoid, which is a hormone that increases blood sugar levels. The hormone cortisol leads to overeating, craving for fatty and sugary foods, and relocating of fat from the circulation and storage depots to the deep internal abdominal area.

Therefore, the link between stress – cortisol –body fat is that stress release the cortisol hormone and cortisol makes an individual to overeat and crave for sugary/fatty foods, which can lead to belly fat. 

Cause of Belly Fat #2: Pregnancy(Childbirth). You may or may not have big tummy before pregnancy but usually after child birth you suddenly develop big tummy or your tummy gets bigger.

Pregnancy causes fat gain around your belly because pregnancy stretches your tummy to accommodate the baby. Also, fat protects the child until delivery. However, after delivery, the fat remains there as ‘baby-fat’ which makes a majority of nursing mothers  have big tummy after child birth. Then come to imagine having up to 3, 5,9 babies. You can now appreciate why your tummy looks that ugly.

However, the good news is that you can still have your babies and maintain a flat belly like that of my wife you see here. She is a mother of three and still has a flat tummy.

Cause of Belly Fat #3: Sedentary Life Style: A sedentary lifestyle is a type of lifestyle with irregular or no physical activity. A person who lives a sedentary lifestyle is usually too busy to exercise. Sedentary activities include sitting for long hours a day reading, watching TV, chatting on phone, playing video games much of the day with little or no vigorous physical exercise. The implication of this is that you consume more calories than you burn in a day.

So if you are living a sedentary lifestyle, the excess calories you consume will be converted to fat which are usually deposited in your belly, arms, thighs and butts.

Simply put, you live a lifestyle that does not encourage or give you the opportunity to move your body.

Cause of Belly Fat #4: Menopause Menopause is the one major unavoidable cause of belly fat in women. During and after menopause, women tend to accumulate fat around the abdomen as a result of changes in their hormones. When Menopause begins in a woman, the amount of estrogen produced by her ovaries drop significantly. This causes the stored fat in her body to migrate from her buttocks, hips and thighs to her waist, and later to be stored in her belly.

As you enter the early stages of menopause, maintaining your body weight becomes more and more difficult, and losing weight becomes even more difficult. This is because of the changes in your hormones like the sex hormone -Estrogen.

The low levels of estrogen that come with menopause are associated with loss of subcutaneous fat and gain of visceral fat, or belly fat.

Cause of Belly Fat #5: Heredity Although most women tend to have a pear-shaped body, meaning it stores fat more so in the buttocks, hips and thighs. Like men, some women can also have an apple-shaped body which favours storage of tummy fat.

This is a cause of belly fat that one of course don’t have any control over. If either of your parents have an apple body shape, you’re unfortunately at a higher risk of developing belly fat.

Cause of Belly Fat #6: Poor Digestive System: The digestive system is responsible for absorbing nutrients from our foods and eliminating waste and toxins from our body via the poop. When digestion is less than optimal you can expect a host of health problems including fatigue, weight gain, anemia, nutrient deficiency, toxicity and more. The problem here is that we eat more of dead foods. Over 90% of our foods are cooked, and in the process of cooking, the enzymes responsible for proper digestion are damaged.

Have you observe that when you eat fruits and vegetables, you poop freely? Why is that? Simply because the digestive enzymes in fruits and veggies are living and that is why they improves your digestion. But when you eat your regularly cooked foods you hardly poop, perhaps once a day or once in two or three days.

Eating high carbs food late at night, too soon before going to sleep obstructs proper digestion of food. Going to bed immediately after a meal is also believed to increase the risk of your body storing fat around your abdominal area.

Cause of Belly Fat #7:  Consuming Refined Carbohydrates: Refined carbohydrates, such as packaged cereals, white bread, white rice, pasta, cakes, biscuits, sweets, candy, pastries, pies, white flour are quickly converted into glucose in your body, spiking insulin levels and setting off the insulin response that stores abdominal fat.

Cause of Belly Fat #8 Soft Drinks and Alcohol: I have seen people who can not eat a meal without taking a bottle of coke/malt/glasses of juice. As harmless as it may seem, it has serious impact on your belly. Recall they are loaded with refined sugars. Not only can these drinks trigger an increased insulin response, leading to increased fat storage, but they also leave you feeling unsatisfied. They don’t keep you full in the same way calories from solid foods do. That is why you keep craving for more.

Cause of Belly Fat #9: Toxins: Toxins from polluted air, water, plastic containers, cosmetics, drugs and food is one of the major reasons you are fat. Toxins are dangerous to our health and the body in its amazing capacity to adapt,  takes these foreign substances –toxins  and store them in fat cells. The fat cell is the safest place to keep something it can’t effectively and safely eliminate through the elimination organs like liver, kidney, lung and skin.

As your body continues to accumulate more toxins on daily basis, you are actually loading your body with myriads of toxins, since they cannot successfully eliminate all the toxins you are loading into your body; the body will continue to store the toxins in your fat cells, and what happens is that over time you may actually be gaining weight as the fat cells enlarge or worst still you will experience weight loss resistance  because you have a toxic overload.

It is the  enlarged fat cells causing your big butts, thighs, arms, belly and cellulite. You can read more on the link between toxins and weight gain in one of the articles I published on my website titled “Beauty and Personal Care Products Making You Fat? In my ebook Body Detox Secret, I discussed extensively how you can eliminate the accumulated toxins in your body for improved health, quick weight loss, glowing skin and boundless energy.

One thing I want you to know is this: No matter the cause of your belly fat or overweight, you can still achieve a flatter belly and lose the excess body fat.

But before we discuss how you can achieve a flatter belly and burn off the excess body fat to get back to shape. In the Part 2 of this Belly Blast Series, I will discuss the dangers of belly Fat. How does excess belly fat/overweight/obesity affect your health and your relationship.

I encourage you to ensure you read all the Belly Blast Series that will be following soon.

Detoxification: Good for Your Health and Weight Loss

Almost everyone is concerned about the way they look, their weight and physique. 

In a bid to lose weight at any cost, many go on a diet. Is dieting the best way to lose weight? The truth is that while on diet you will lose weight, but it does not last. Once you stop the diet, the weight will rebound. Why?

Because the root cause of the weight gain or weight loss resistance, which are toxins, is left unaddressed. Remember that toxins enlarge your fat cell, endangers your health and makes it difficult for you to lose weight.

When you diet, you burn fat but the toxins in your body remains in high concentration. At some point your body reacts to increased toxicity by going into emergency fat production to protect the body – then the weight will rebound. So with dieting there is a vicious circle of burning fat and regaining it.

So what could be the best approach that will address both the cause(toxins) and the effect(poor health/weight gain)?

It is not medications. It is not starvation. instead, it is simply detoxification. It is only detoxification that canweight loss nigeria clear the toxins from your body and burn the excess fat deposited in the fat cells.

What Are Toxins?

Toxins can be defined as substances that disrupt the normal healthy flow within our bodies.

Unknown to us, we face an onslaught of toxins every day. In the past 20 years, we’ve seen more toxins enter our environment than ever before. Toxins lodge in cells, tissues and muscles until your body is completely overwhelmed as they build up overtime.

The fact is that you may get the toxins from the foods you eat, from air pollution, water you drink, your beauty care products and many more. The truth remains that with toxins lurking around in your body, losing weight will be difficult for you. You may rather continue to add weight.

Sources of Toxins: Sources of toxins in our body includes the following:

  • Human growth hormones fed to cows to increase milk production.
  • Exhaust fumes from cars and generators(every home has one)
  • Plastics – containers, water bottles etc
  • Food- preservatives, pesticides, etc
  • Drinking water- chlorine, heavy metals etc
  • Personal care products - perfumes, shampoos, body creams, makeups etc
  • Primary and Secondary smoking.
  • Household cleaners
  • Air fresheners

Toxins from those sources and more weakens the body organs like the liver, kidney, skin that naturally detox the body thereby leading to toxic overload, which poisons internal body organs. This leads to berakdown in health, weight gain, premature aging and weight loss resistance(inability to burn fat).

Detoxification- The Only Solution

To detoxify means to cleanse the body of toxic substances accummulated in your body over a period of time. It is indeed one of the best ways to remain healthy in our polluted and toxic environment, which we can not run away from. The principle of detoxification is – eliminate harmful toxins, get clean and healthy.

One good thing about detoxification is that it cleanses your body, shrink the fat cells and also improve your overall health. As you get rid of the toxins in your body, it makes it easier burn fat and the weight already lost wont come back again as in the case of dieting. See the picture above(Nutritional rebalancing is not a diet).

To lose weight successfully you must be clean from toxins. The toxins that have accumulated in your body are stored in the fat cells. Therefore “If we can shrink the fat cells, then we have  eliminated toxins from our body and lose weight at the same time”.

The Benefits of Body Detox: The benefits of cleansing are numerous, few are listed below:

  • Weight loss (stubborn fat will melt away)
  • Eliminates harmful toxins from your body
  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Boost your energy
  • Increases concentration
  • Better sleep
  • Stops food cravings
  • Better skin condition
  • Learn to eat the healthy way
  • Better health condition

How Long  Should a Detox Last?

Body detox could last for just 24hrs, 2 -day, 3-day, or 7-day. In all, it is always healthier not to exceed a 7 day detoxification plan as this may not be good for your health. In my ebook Body Detox Secret, what you get there is the 7-day detox plan with raw detox fruits and vegetables.

How To Detoxify Your Body

You will discover two good ways to detoxify your body without using drugs.

Method 1: Drink Lemon Juice

Start with the fresh juice of half a lemon(or lime if you cant find lemon) squeezed into clean warm water first thing upon rising in the morning. This helps to stimulate your bowels to eliminate the waste products that may have built up in your intestinal tract. It also helps to balance your blood pH. In other words, it reduces the acidity of your blood.

This is essential because pain and disease thrive in acidic blood. The simple act of neutralizing the acidity helps lessen pain and decrease any harmful pathogens that reside in your body.

Method 2: Use 7-Day Fruits and Vegetables Detox Recipes

This involves feeding on only fruits and vegetables for 7 good days.

If you don’t know how to do it, The Body Detox Secret has a 7-day meal plan full of uncooked fruits and vegetables for effective and efficient detoxification. Just eat only raw fruits and vegetables(not all fruits are good for detox), and when it is properly done, you will continue to live without falling sick from time to time or gaining unnecessary weight.

As explained ealeir, with proper detofication, weight loss becomes easy. The burning fat will be as easy as ABC.

When you cleanse your body, you will feel lighter and healthier and smart, have more energy because the living enzymes in your body has been replenished from the enzymes from fruits and vegetables which is lacking in cooked foods.

If you want to start a full body detox process that leads to weight loss and improved health, then I suggest you start with the Body Detox Secret here. You will also access fat bruning meal plan and fat burning workouts you can do without going to gym in the Body Detox Secret.

Toxins – The #1 Reason You Are Fat

Our environment is not safe!

Everywhere and everything around us is toxic!

Toxins is been described as one of the major killers of our generation. Millions are  dying yearly from toxins. The world is no longer safe.

Imagine waking up without an ache or pain, strong and healthy, cruising to work or your business with so much energy, and ending your day with a refreshing night’s sleep, no stress.

Ok, now picture waking up to do it all over again and again. Do you think it is impossible? That could be anyone’s dream but sadly the accumulation of toxins can leave you sluggish, achy, heavy, and overweight. It can also lead to disease in the form of cancer, arthritis, low sperm count, infertility, diabetes, allergies, and many other serious illnesses. When you eliminate the numerous toxins in your body, you will welcome each day feeling great – always ready to go!.

Toxins can be defined as substances that disrupt the normal healthy flow within our bodies. Unknown to us, we face an onslaught of toxins every day. In the past 20 years, we’ve seen more toxins enter our environment than ever before. Toxins lodge in cells, tissues and muscles until your body is completely overwhelmed as they build up overtime.

Sources of Toxins

It is important to understand why we are toxic and how we can eliminate it. To understand toxicity, you must understand the concept of “total load.” Total load is the total amount of stressors on your system at any given time. It is likened to what happens when a glass fills over with water.

It takes a certain amount of water to fill the glass and then, after a certain point, you put more in and it overflows. This happens to us when our detoxification organs (Liver, Kidney, Lung, and Skin etc) are overpowered, it gets overloaded. That’s when we start developing symptoms and getting sick, but it may take years of accumulated stress and toxins to get to that point.

The major sources of Toxins are:

1. Food and Beverages: The food we eat today are highly toxic. We eat a lot of processed and dead foods. Toxicity in our foods come from packaged food, food colourings, preservatives, chemical  flavours like Aspartame and fast foods. More worrisome is the high intake of while flours and sugar, which makes the body to be acidic thereby creating an acidic environment were bacteria can flourish.

Also  excess consumption of alcohol and caffeine are toxic to the body as the liver  must work overtime to process these harmful substances and if your organs are not performing at their best(most people’s are not) the toxins will build up overtime.

2. Chemicals: Chemicals that are considered toxic are lurking in places we least expect them to be. The sources of toxins from chemicals are pesticides usually found on conventional produce that is freshly picked and unwashed found in grocery stores. Chemicals like Bisphenol A is found in plastics. Also prescription drugs, over the counter medicine and even recreational drugs all contain chemicals toxins that accumulate in the body overtime.

3. Air Pollution: The air we breath is highly polluted. Think of emissions from cars and lorries, smoking including second hand smoke, acid rain, factories, paint fumes, air freshners, and wide fire.

4. Water Pollution:  Sources of water pollution includes water treatment chemicals like chlorine, heavy metals and chloroform, oil spills (especially those in the Niger Delta), animal waste, pesticides and fertilizers. How about human sewage, toxic garbage dumping in the ocean, the list continues.

5. Behavioral Factor: Stress leads to major toxic build up internally. The same is true of negative emotions like worry; anxiety and fear all contribute to toxins in the body.

6. Personal and Beauty care products – anti-bacterial soap, perfumes, creams, shampoos, lotions and other similar products have a range of toxins like artificial fragrance, Benzaldehyde, benzalkonium chloride and sodium laureth sulfate.

Sincerely, the list above is not exhaustive, there other sources of toxins in our not captured here, you can dig deep.

Symptoms of Toxins in the Body
The effects of toxins can vary according to the level of these harmful chemicals in the body. The results may also be different in individuals, based on the exposure to these chemical compounds.

Overweight/Obesity: When your body is loaded with toxins, your body will hang on to fats to store the toxins in other to protect the body from toxic effects. The fat cell is the safest place toxins can be stored in the body. Overtime the fat cell will start enlarging, which will be very obvious in your thighs, arms, belly and butts. Toxins will not only make you to gain weight but will also make your body to become resistant to weight loss, no matter how much you diet and exercise you cant just lose weight.

Gastrointestinal Tract Problem: The gastrointestinal tract is an important passage for the elimination of toxins from the body. Certain problems of the gastrointestinal tract can increase the levels of toxins in the body. Individuals who have a high amount of toxins will show symptoms like inflammation in the lining of the tract, constipation, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, pain in the abdominal region, and indigestion.

Infertility in Men and Women: A synthetic agent called xenoestrogens, which when enters the body tends to act like the female hormone, estrogen. This toxin can cause hormonal imbalances in women, leading to symptoms of endometriosis and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). In men, this toxin can decrease the sperm count by elevating the level of estrogen. This can explain the rise in infertility cases in men and women. The rate of low sperm count in Nigerian amongst men is alarming.

Inflammatory Conditions: Toxins, being foreign bodies, can trigger a series of inflammations. The white blood cells present in the body try to fight against these external factors. The inflammation can lead to various health related disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, heart diseases and arthritis. If an individual is already suffering from any of the above mentioned diseases, then the toxins present in the body can make this condition severe.

Skin Problem: The skin eliminates the toxins through the process of perspiration or sweating. At times, the pores in the skin get clogged with toxins, triggering many allergic reactions. These reactions can lead to a various skin related problems like rashes, psoriasis, acne and eczema.

Cognitive Problems: An overload of toxins can lead to many cognitive problems like loss of memory, mood swings and foggy thinking or unable to think clearly. An excess of toxins or overexposure to toxins can also cause symptoms similar to dementia, even in young people.

Premature Aging: You may have noticed this common trend that people now look older than their real age. You will appreciate it most when you see obituary posters…you see some 40years looking 6o years old. How about our children, you see a kid of 15 years looking 30 years old. These are simply the hand work of toxins in the body. To escape this embarrassing trend people spend so much money on anti-aging products. But that is not the real solution.

The solutions lies on natural eating. 

How can we avoid Toxins?

Now you will be wondering if it is possible to escape these toxins. So long as you are alive, you can’t completely avoid toxins, they are everywhere you go. That not withstanding, we can greatly reduce our exposure to toxins by making wise choices in our food, water, personal care products, skin care products, home cleaning methods and many more.

Your body has its own ways of dealing with some toxins, but it can be overburdened by the volume and type of toxins found in our modern world. Especially the liver, it will become so weak to eliminate the toxins effectively and what happens is that the excess toxins finds their way into the blood stream and fat cells. This is dangerous to your health, and sadly too is that many perhaps you is already experience this ugly vicious circle.

To effectively cleanse your body you must eliminate toxins from your respiratory system – liver, gallbladder, kidneys and urinary tract, skin, fatty deposits (including cellulite), lymphatic system and other detoxification organs and systems. To minimize further toxic buildup you must reduce your exposure to additional toxins.

I have discovered the secret to eliminating the toxins from our body in the most natural way with out using drugs and herbs. Simply 100% natural, performed by in the comfort of your home. It is called – Detoxification.

To cleanse your body effectively, you need to detox. Many people maybe including you has never detox their body. Please note that effective detox does not require drugs or herbs. using drugs and herbs to detox means you are just adding more toxins to your body.

What you just read now is extracted from my new book Body Detox Secret. You can get a copy for yourself here

I will be sharing with you more information on how we can cleanse our body of this life threatening agent – toxins.
