The more I watch television or read online, the more aware of the term probiotics I become. Jamie Lee Curtis and Activa have been talking about it for years. But what do you really know about probiotics, other than the snippets you get on ads and tv commercials? What do you know about probiotics in water kefir, specifically? Water kefir…ah…that’s a new one, I bet.Water kefir is hitting the Internet waves much the same way kombucha or milk kefir is. They all originate from living grains or fungus. They need fermentation for the healthy properties that many seek when drinking. Water kefir junkies also live for the fizz.Water kefir is a healthy alternative to soda. The fountain never runs dry once you learn the art of making it. And it really is that easy: grains, water, and sugar. That’s it.Let’s talk about what water kefir is and why it’s good for you.What Is Water Kefir?Water kefir is said to have originated in two places, so it’s up to you to decide which version you want to believe. It is generally believed that water kefir got its beginnings in Mexico, thriving in the sugary water of the Ountia cactus (prickly pear). Others believe it started further back in Tibet when monks gave the grains to Mother Teresa of Calcutta.The word kefir comes from the Turkish word and means “feeling good.” Water kefir is a mild, zesty sugar-water beverage often compared to a natural, refreshing soda, and perfect for everyday drinking.Ferment at room temperature for 24-48 hours with fruit or lemon, and that’s it, sugary goodness to drink for a probiotic pick-me-up. Kefir has a low glycemic index and is caffeine free.Is Water Kefir Healthy?Kefir is loaded with digestible sugars, valuable enzymes, and beneficial acids, minerals, and vitamins. It supplies your body with tons of healthy bacteria and yeast. Unlike kombucha (made with tea) water kefir is caffeine free.How are bacteria beneficial? Your body is made up of billions of bacteria and yeast that support internal microflora support for digestion. Your body needs a healthy dose of probiotics to fight off bacteria, viruses, and yeast, which kefir provides.Research is also proving that kefir may be anti-mutagenic and help manage free radicals. The longer the drink is fermented the more folic acid and B vitamins are produced within.Drinking kefir may help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Kefir is proving beneficial to many, from improving digestion, building immunity from colds and viruses, and boosting energy. Besides the health benefits, many are drinking just because they enjoy the effervescence of a soda.What Does Water Kefir Taste Like?Water kefir can taste pretty much like you want it to. Do you like pink lemonade? Then make it out of strawberries and lemons. Do you like black cherry? Make simple syrup out of cherries, water, and sugar. Add to kefir and you have a great tasting black cherry soda-feel. Add a splash of vanilla, I like it that way and you will too.Some people make it out of basil and lemon, pineapple, grape juice, or just about anything you can think of. Don’t like what you make? Throw it out and try something different next time. The grains continually replenish, giving you a great, healthy alternative that is better than any soda anytime.Download Mevo app now from –App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/mevo-weight-loss-fitness/id1082646969?mt=8Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mevolife.mevo&hl=en...

Which potatoes are healthier Sweet Potatoes Or White Potatoes Mevolife

When it comes to potatoes, the general consensus it that it is a delicious and versatile vegetable used in many dishes such as mashed potatoes and casseroles, and in fact, potatoes are the fourth most consumed food-crop in the world. But are potatoes really good for your health? And what are the nutritional differences in potatoes and sweet potatoes?Sweet potatoes and potatoes are both root vegetables originated from South America, but they have little in common apart from their origin and name. Potatoes can grow in most climates and soil, making it an easy crop to grow, but sweet potatoes tend to be more delicate.The sweet potatoes are not immune to cold weather and frost, and tend to be sensitive to daylight. The insides of sweet potatoes are not always orange or yellow, but sometimes can be purple.Purple sweet potatoes contain peonidins and cyanidins, which possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These properties, when passing through a person’s digestive system, can reduce the health risks posed by oxygen radicals and heavy metals.What about orange sweet potatoes?The orange colored sweet potatoes, on the other hand, are considered by some to be one of the best sources for beta-carotene, which convert into vitamin A, an essential vitamin.It is said that sweet potato alone could fill 90% of vitamin A needed for a day. Study shows that feeding sweet potatoes to children is an efficient way to provide children the necessary amount of vitamin A.Beta-carotene is also an antioxidant, and helps cleanse the body of toxin. To maximize the intake of beta-carotene in sweet potato, researchers suggest including 3 to 5 grams of fat, which converts into about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. The recommended method of cooking is boiling or steaming, as these two methods best preserve the nutrition in sweet potatoes.Potatoes get a bad rap from foods like French fries and potato chips but actually have many health benefits. Potatoes are very good sources of vitamin B6, and good sources of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid. Vitamin B6 is essential for the formation of new cells in the human body, and are active everywhere in the body.B6 is also needed to serotonin, which prevents depression, and melatonin, which provides your body with quality sleep. Potatoes also have antioxidant properties, which comes from the variety of phytonutrients they contain. Study states that potatoes also have the potential to lower blood pressure, effectively preventing disease. They also contain lots of fiber in their skin, so to take full advantage of potatoes, consuming potato skin is recommended. The best way to preserve most nutrients in potatoes when cooking them is steaming or roasting them without peeling off the skin.TakeawayIn conclusion, even though they share very little in common, both potatoes and sweet potatoes are great sources of various nutrients, and we honestly think both are great. Sweet potatoes are generally considered the healthier option because white potatoes are often related to greasy foods and fast food, but are actually quite good for you, and both are excellent options as long as you follow a healthy cooking method.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Playstore   iOS Appstore...

CARBOHYDRATES are like enemies to anyone who wants to lose weight. This is because many of us have been brainwashed into thinking that carbs lead to weight gain! The reality is that – THEY WON’T! Carbs are required by the body for energy and if you deprive your body of this essential nutrient it ultimately results on a gallon of moose tracks — and that certainly won’t help you lose weight.It is a lesser known fact that a diet which is packed with right and healthy kind of carbs is a secret to getting fit and staying slim for life. The use of work RIGHT creates a big differentiating wall as to which carbs you should and which you should avoid. “Right carbs = Resistant Starch”.In order to test this fact, there are various studies conducted in multiple universities which have highlighted that Resistant Starch helps you eat less, burn more calories, feel more energized and less stressed, and lower cholesterol too!A recent study has explicated that slimmest people ate the foods rich in carbs while the chubbiest people avoided them. Along with this, the studies have also come up with the fact that best diet to lose weight shall comprise of at least 64% of carbs! This makes it very clear that allowing your body for carbs is not a bad option but you should be careful in the selection.The major reason behind carbs playing a positive role in weight loss is that they act as a powerful appetite suppressant. Carbs are even more filling than proteins and are digested slowly which ultimately keeps you full for longer durations. This has also been proved by a study conducted in the University of Surrey, which explicated that participants who consumed Resistant Starch in one meal had 10% fewer calories the next day!In the long list of benefits of carbs, another one is that it helps to speed up the metabolism levels. Resistant starch speeds up your metabolism level and act as a natural fat burner as it releases fatty acids that encourage fat burning, especially in your belly.What else – the right type of carbs also helps to regulate blood sugar levels and control diabetes!Some of the rules to follow to maintain the right level of carbsconsumption:1. Eat one product that is rich in resistant starch at every meal.2. Portion size is a must – 1/4th of your plate should consist of good carbs.3. Don’t deprive yourself of anything be it chocolate, pasta, wine, bread or even chips… Moderation is the key to success!Some of the options for right type of carbohydrates:a) Quinoab) Barleyc) Popcornd) Roasted chickpease) Whole-grain rye crisp breadf) Sweet potatoesg) 2% Greek yogurth) Whole grain cereali) Oatmealj) Maple waterk) WatermelonSo, don’t say no to carbs but be careful and select the right type of carbs to boost up the weightloss process!...

What Is the Blood Type Diet and Does It Work Mevolife

In 1996, Peter J. D’Adamo published Eat Right 4 Your Type, a diet based on the belief that chemical reactions occur in the foods you eat and your blood type. This reaction is caused by Lectin, which is proteins that are found in food and have glue like (agglutinate) properties that affect your blood.The Blood Type Diet claims that when you eat foods containing lectins not compatible with your blood type, the lectins attack organs or systems within your body and begin to stick to those blood cells contained in that area. The theory behind this diet is that your specific blood type determines what foods you need to consume to best optimize your health. What does this diet involve? Is it truly the miracle diet that many swear by?What Is the Blood Type Diet?D’Adamo claims that each ABO blood type represents our ancestor’s genetic traits and which specific foods they thrived on in order to evolve and survive. D’Adamo’s theory is that each blood type needs the following foods for optimal health:Type O is referred to as the hunter, The theory is based on the fact that hunters thrive on high-protein diets comprised of meat, poultry, fish, certain vegetables and fruits, but limits grains, dairy, and legumes. The Paleo diet resembles this type of eating.Type A, called the cultivator, is based on eating a diet rich in plants and completely free of red meat, which is considered toxic. The vegetarian diet resembles this type of eating.Type B is often referred to as the nomad. Nomads eat plants and meats, with the exception of pork and chicken. This blood type should avoid corn, wheat, tomatoes, and lentils.Type AB is called the enigma. Because this is often described as a mix between types A and B, it is recommended to consume tofu, seafood, beans, grains, and dairy, avoiding beef, chicken, corn, and kidney beans.Is It Scientifically Based?Strong evidence does suggest that people with certain blood types have a higher or lower risk of certain diseases. People who have Type O blood seem to have a lower risk for heart disease, but have a higher risk of developing stomach ulcers.A study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked for studies grouping people according to individual blood type, and whether following the diet specific to their blood type made any difference in their overall health. After reviewing the entire biomedical and life science databases, the researchers could not find one single study showing that following the Blood Type Diet actually led to better health-related outcomes.What’s the Bottom Line?The Blood Type Diet doesn’t take into account individual medical history, current body type or age, the medications you are on, food allergies, or diet history. Choosing the ideal diet should account for all these factors.This diet isn’t particularly harmful, is just isn’t based on scientific fact. On this diet, you will avoid processed foods, which we all know isn’t good for the body anyway. The diet can quickly become expensive because it relies on organic foods as well as D’Adamo’s specific line of supplements.There is no research that suggests it aids in digestion or improves energy. Eating the way this diet suggest won’t necessarily hurt you, but it won’t necessarily help you to achieve health, well-being, and losing weight any more than other diets that target making wise food choices when it comes to your health.Download Mevo app now from –App Store – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/mevo-weight-loss-fitness/id1082646969?mt=8Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mevolife.mevo&hl=en...

Now you’ve probably heard that coconut water is good for your health, but did you know that coconut milk is also great for Health ? There are some misconception regarding the healthiness of this miracle drink due to its rich creamy texture and subtle sweetness, but these factors only make it a more delicious health drink than most others. Keep reading to find out why its time to stock up on some coconut milk.1. It helps you lose fat via coconut milkAlthough coconut milk has about 14 grams of fat in each serving (quarter cup, full-fat), its MCT or medium-chain triglycerides fatty acids actually help your energy spending, which can augment physical performance. The plethora of nutrients present in coconut milk also helps nourish your muscles, which can help in muscle building following your regular workout routine.The good kind of fats in coconut milk also helps you stay full for longer, which serves as a preventive measure for your tendency to overeat. Building muscle and helping you to control your intake are essential factors in losing body fat, which are enough to encourage you to consume coconut milk regularly.2. Coconut milk helps with constipationCoconut milk helps with the nourishment of the digestive tract due to its high nutrient and electrolyte content. It is also known to relieve indigestion and constipation in individuals, as it promotes healthy bacterial growth in the colon.3. Aids in blood sugar regulationDiabetics can also benefit from coconut milk as its fatty substances decelerate the sugar release rate in the bloodstream, which facilitates better insulin control in the patients’ bodies. Coconut milk is a great alternative in milk-based recipes and desserts due to its healthy richness and sweetness which are better for the body than added sugars.4. It is good for your heart?The fat content of coconut milk is essentially 50% lauric acid, a fatty acid which is associated with cholesterol levels improvement, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Studies were able to back up the claim of coconut milk’s cholesterol level improvement, as clinical trial results determined that individuals who took coconut milk had decreased LDL/bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) levels and had amplified levels of good cholesterol or HDL (high-density lipoprotein). This assures the general population that although coconut milk is “fatty”, it is not the bad kind, but rather beneficial than damaging.The mineral content of coconut milk can also help you lower your blood pressure, increase your blood vessel flexibility, and prevents plaque build-up, which contribute to greater heart health.5. It aids in ulcer preventionCoconut milk is also known to prevent the formation of ulcers and in reducing ulcer size. This can be attributed to coconut milk’s shielding effects on the ulcerated regions, which prevents pain in the area. This action of coconut milk is even better than coconut water’s ulcer preventive mechanism.Ideally, you should be looking for the organic or “cold pressed” coconut milk and avoid anything with added sugar, salt, preservatives or any other nasty chemical you don’t want in your food.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Play store   iOS Appstore...

In an ideal world, we would all be fit and stay healthy without having to try, but in reality, staying healthy in today’s busy world is no easy task, especially if you need to stick to a budget. But worry not, for we know you are busy and have compiled a list of things that won’t drain your energy or break the bank.Here are two easy steps to follow if you are concerned about your health but too busy to devote much time or money:Eating healthy is a big part of staying healthy.Now, we know that many people think eating healthy on a budget means living on lettuce salad without dressing, but it really doesn’t have to be that boring… at least not all the time.The point is to focus on getting more protein, as these are what many people are missing from their budget diet. Some of our suggestions for affordable protein items include frozen chicken breast, tuna cans, plain yogurt, milk and eggs.Not all proteins are equal in quality, but animal protein tends to deliver all the amino acid we need. Incorporating more protein into your diet can really change the way you feel and look, as you will feel more energetic and will gain muscles more easily. Some other benefits of protein include lowered risk of premature death, lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and lowered risk of cancer.As an added bonus, your hair and nails would look great too. The recommended daily amount for adults is 46 grams per day for women and 56 grams for men.Additionally, reducing the intake of red meat greatly reduces the chances of having heart disease and diabetes.Physical activity is free.Research shows getting more physical activity not only helps you stay fit and look great, but also helps in preventing at lease six disease, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and mental disorders like depression.However, to reap benefits from physical activity, at least 30 minutes of constant activity is recommended. These activities don’t have to be anything extensive, but activities such as jogging, fast walking, and swimming are all excellent examples of physical activities.If you are not an exercise kind of person, physical activities could be made more enjoyable when you join a group of other people or find some activity that you actually enjoy doing. Many people make hobbies out of activities such as dancing, biking, swimming and hiking, or even rock climbing. Be sure to talk to your doctor before you getting started, especially if you have medical conditions.Sticking to these plans might mean less weekly visits to Burger King and more gruesome exercise for some people, but as the old adage goes, there are few things in life that matter more than one’s own health, and it’s always a good idea to maintain health before it starts deteriorating. Furthermore, if you drink alcohol or smoke, it helps to lessen the amount you drink or smoke if staying healthy is your priority.Log whatever you eat in our amazing Weight Loss & Fitness app – MEVO available on –Google Play store  /   iOS Appstore...

Fermented foods are foods that have been preserved through a process of fermentation. In this process the natural bacteria feed on the sugars and starches in food, which results in lactic acid. The result of this process is longer lasting preserved foods that are high in beneficial enzymes, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, and most importantly, different strains of probiotics. But why is this important for us?The Benefits of Fermented FoodsThere are a variety of different benefits to eating fermented foods. All of these benefits have to do with our microbiome.

This is a fermented food made from dairy that often has a tangy taste. Make sure you read the labels and find yogurt with strains of probiotics. Many mainstream yogurts these days don’t have health benefits.Kimchi – Made in Korea, kimchi is spicy fermented cabbage. In Korea, this tangy food is served as a side dish at every meal. Growing in popularity around the world, Kimchi has been shown to promote weight loss, combat cancer cells, and even fight depression.Sauerkraut – This pickled cabbage dish originates from northern Europe. Whereas kimchi is spicy, Sauerkraut has a distinctive sour taste, and goes well as a topping on all sorts of different dishes.The Takeaway on Fermented FoodsWhether you are trying to lose weight, gain better health, or just find a more adventurous topping for your sandwich or salad, fermented foods are worth adding to your diet.

It’s pretty well-known information that the common ‘’eat less, move more’’ tip to lose weight isn’t working for most people. In fact, more than 75% of people who lose weight do not only gain it back, they will often add a few more pounds. So, can there be a real solution for this problem that doesn’t involve expensive shakes and pills?There might be. More and more people are hearing a word that is very closely linked to weight loss: Ketosis, Ketogenic or Keto. Ketogenic is a low-carb, diet that works because it helps suppress your appetite and cravings.How does Ketogenic Diet Work Fast?Ketosis is a process that the body does on an everyday basis, regardless of the number of carbs you eat. When you eat foods high in carbs or excess amounts of protein, your body will break this down into sugar, known as glucose. Glucose is needed for the creation of ATP (an energy molecule), which is a fuel that is needed for the daily activities and maintenance of our bodies. This is a normal and healthy chemical reaction of the body.Our bodies use up much of the nutrients we intake just to maintain itself on a daily basis. If you eat enough food, there will likely be an excess of glucose that your body doesn’t need. What happens with this glucose? There are two things:Glycogenesis: Excess glucose will be converted into a different chemical, glycogen, and stored in your liver and muscles. Estimates show that only about half of your daily energy can be stored as glycogen, so what happens with the glycogen that can’t be stored in your liver and muscles?Lipogenesis: If there’s already enough glycogen in your muscles and liver, any extra glucose will be converted into fats and stored.So what happens when you stop eating foods high in carbs and excess protein and your body doesn’t get that glucose? Ketosis.When your body has no access to food, like when you are sleeping or when you are on a ketogenic diet, the body will burn fat and create molecules called ketones. That’s because our bodies are able to switch metabolic pathways. And this is known as Ketosis Weight loss Rate or Success.How long does it take to lose weight in keto diet?Ketogenic low-carb diets are incredibly helpful with suppressing appetite. The keto diet helps to alter the concentrations of hormones and nutrients that affect hunger. This means you can learn to listen to your body’s true hunger signals instead of cravings for sugar.Ketosis can help to maximize weight loss by regulating hormones that affect weight gain. After you eat, the hormone cholecystokinin (CCK for short) is released by your body. CCK is responsible for stimulating fat and protein digestion, so staying true to a keto diet will help you to release that hormone sooner.And last but not least, a keto diet can help you increase the amount of fat burned by your body. When you eat low-carb and your body starts burning fat as its primary source of fuel (instead of glucose), you’re essentially in a fasting state where your body is using your fat stores directly for energy. This can help you with maximize weight loss stalls or get rid of unwanted fat. Here’s the list of food that can help you stick to the Ketogenic Diet and lose weight fast: –1. Salmon2.
