The best way you can keep healthy into old age is to eat the right foods. But what are those foods?
It’s not so obvious to most of us. The nutrition industry seems to change every year.
This is where we review the latest nutrition products and ideas. We don’t have all the answers, but we can still help.
Here are a few topics we’ll be covering…
Eating to lose weight is a huge interest for lots of people. There’s no one-size-fits-all weight loss diet, so we review a variety.
Every diet on the market claims to work miracles, but a lot of them are gimmicky and unoriginal. Even worse, some popular diets are nothing more than crash-and-burn diets where you’ll gain the weight back.
Weight loss supplements are also important to know about. They can make a difference, but there’s also plenty of snake oil out there. And of course you want to avoid buying anything unsafe.
Detox diets are a popular type of diet focusing on removing toxins and impurities (and often losing weight in the process).
We look for detox diets that lead to sustainable health benefits. It makes no sense to starve on a liquid cleanse if you’re only going to gain it all back once it’s over.
The best detox diet we have reviewed to date is Red Smoothie Detox Factor. It came out a couple years ago and it’s quite well done.
Red Tea Detox is one of the hottest detox diets of this year, and it’s made by the same person, Liz Swann Miller.
Probiotics have exploded onto the scene in recent years. These are the “good” bacteria that live in your digestive tract and help you digest your food.
Probiotics are great because a lot of people have deficient gut bacteria. Poor diets and antibiotic use will do that.
But if you’ve looked at the probiotics section at the grocery you probably know how expensive they can be. And some probiotic brands use bad quality ingredients, making them useless.
You want to find a probiotic that actually works without spending an exorbitant amount.
Just like probiotics, enzymes also help us digest food properly. Enzymes are what help break down food so your body can absorb nutrients.
Any natural health practitioner will tell you about the dangers of not digesting your food. It’s not just gas and bloating – you can actually suffer long term health consequences if you don’t digest completely.
One of the important factors here is whether your body is using enough enzymes to get the job done. Sometimes a change in your diet will do the trick, but other times it might help to use an enzyme supplement.
Dietary deficiencies are more prevalent than you might think.
Even when we do our best to eat a complete and well-rounded diet, odds are you’re coming up short of at least a few nutrients. That’s especially true if you eat a special diet, such as vegan or paleo.
Sometimes it’s not a big deal, but in some cases lacking enough of a certain nutrient can cause serious health problems.
And correcting a nutrition imbalance can sometimes have a life-changing effect on people.
Here we will be reviewing some of the more popular types of nutritional supplements:
- Protein (powders & supplements)
Food Subscription Services
Food subscription services are quite popular. By this point most of us either use one ourselves or know someone who does.
There are plenty of brands out there offering different services. We’ll do the research so you can figure out which one makes the most sense for your taste and budget.
For most cook books sold on Amazon you can learn a lot just from the reviews. But some cook books aren’t sold on Amazon and so not as much information is out there.
On occasion we review cook books and recipe books that catch our attention.
