High-Dose Vitamin C & Weight Loss by Erin Coleman, R.D., L.D.

By Erin Coleman, R.D., L.D.

Getting a daily dose of vitamin C not only helps your body function properly, but it could aid in effective weight loss. In fact, people who are deficient in vitamin C may have a harder time losing fat mass, according to a review published in 2005 in the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition.” Taking high doses of vitamin C, however, could cause unpleasant side effects — and isn’t a guarantee you’ll shed pounds.

Effects on Weight Loss

Although vitamin C doesn’t necessarily cause weight loss, it seems to be related to body weight. According to the review published in 2005 in the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition,” higher vitamin C intakes are associated with lower body-mass indexes. The authors of this review also point out that getting sufficient amounts of vitamin C increases body fat oxidation during moderate-intensity exercise. Therefore, vitamin C deficiency may hinder weight and body fat loss.

The recommended dietary allowance for vitamin C is 90 milligrams daily for me

On most weekdays, even taking time to pour and consume cereal is a miracle in itself. However, there is another option. Oatmeal will keep you going for hours, and it’s far more comforting than a piece of fruit or that tired old granola bar.

Black Seed Oil Benefits

What is Black Seed Oil?

Black Seed Oil

Old Egyptian kings deemed it a gem. King Tut was even buried with a bottle of this oil, wishing that he’d take it along to the afterlife.

Despite its astounding reputation, some people might still inquire: what is black seed oil? It refers to the oil extracted from the seeds of Nigella Sativa Plant. Black seeds are also referred by a myriad of names such as:

Black Seed Oil to Treat Cancer

The benefits of black seed oil are simply inexhaustible. Several scientists in Croatia conducted tests to examine the anti-tumor properties of two phytochemicals, thymohydroquinone and thymoquinone, in rodents.

The tumor cells decreased by a whopping 52%! Black seed oil is quite rich in these two chemicals and was found to prevent as well as treat cancer via an assortment of mechanisms such as anti-metastasis, anti-proliferation, cell cycle arrest and apoptosis induction.

Black Seed Oil to Rejuvenates Unhealthy Liver

The liver is a crucial organ in the human body. It’s paramount that you keep it healthy and toxin-free by avoiding an overindulgence of alcohol and illegal drugs.

However, if you’ve experienced a deteriorating liver function due to issues such as disease, alcohol binging or medication, consuming black seed oil will help nurse your liver to full health. Black seed oil has some curative properties which include:

  • Anti-bacterial
  • Anti-coagulant
  • Anti-histamine
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-viral

Therefore, make it a habit to take black seed oil as it helps prevent liver damage and disease.

Black Seed Oil helps in Weight Loss

Yet another awe-inspiring property of black seed oil. Weight loss is usually a hard nut to crack among some people, especially today when fast food is the rage.

However, the Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders Journal reviewed the composition of plants that helped in weight loss and listed black seed oil among the best natural anti-obesity plants in the world. Black seeds aid in keeping your blood glucose levels stable. They also aid in liver gluconeogenesis as well as the absorption of glucose in your intestines. Take advantage of these black seed oil weight loss properties that will transform your life.

Prevent Hair Loss with Black Seed Oil

One unique property of black seed oil is its exciting ability to restore your hair.

Scientists are still boggled by how this works, but one thing’s for sure: black seed oil has holistic curative and restorative properties. Perhaps the most outstanding traits of the nigella sativa plant that could help unravel its hair restorative powers are the strong antimicrobial and antioxidant compounds it contains. Black seed oil consolidates your hair follicles and strengthens your hair roots, helping to treat cases of dry or thinning hair. It also reverses premature graying of hair. Therefore, if you notice your hairline receding or your hair turning gray, trust black seed oil for hair restoration.

Black Seed Oil for a Healthy, Glowing Skin

Black seed oil contains a healthy blend of vitamins, fatty acids, amino

The Raw Food Diet: A Beginner’s Guide and Review by Taylor Jones, RD

The raw food diet has been around since the 1800s, but has surged in popularity in recent years.

Its supporters believe that consuming mostly raw foods is ideal for human health and has many benefits, including weight loss and better overall health.

However, health experts warn that eating a mostly raw diet may lead to negative health consequences.

This article reviews the good and bad of the raw food diet, as well as how it works.

The raw food diet, often called raw foodism or raw veganism, is composed of mostly or completely raw and unprocessed foods.

A food is considered raw if it has never been heated over 104–118°F (40–48°C). It should also not be refined,

Squares of our incredible gluten-free vegan lemon bars recipe

Lemon bars.

So very not vegan (or gluten-free)…until now.

Blender with ingredients for making our creamy homemade vegan lemon bars

Friends, vegan lemon bars (!!!) made with just 10 ingredientsnaturally sweetened, and gluten-free! I know, I’m excited, too.

The almond-oat crust is adapted from my Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Bars, and somehow ends up tasting reminiscent of graham cracker crust! It’s my new favorite thing, besides this über creamy filling.

Pouring vegan lemon bar filling over gluten-free crust for our lemon bars recipe

The filling is comprised of soaked cashews, coconut cream, lots of lemon juice + zest, maple syrup, arrowroot starch (for thickening), and sea salt. That’s it!

I didn’t know what would happen if I blended it all up and baked it, but it turns out, it ends up tasting like a lemon bar with a cheesecake-like texture. SWOON!

Even if you don’t have anywhere special to be, these would make a delicious treat to have around the house for snacking (but watch out – you’ll want 2 or 3).

The Statistics of Vegetarians Vs. Meat-Eaters GORD KERR REVIEWED BY: JILL CORLEONE

If you’re trying to eat healthier, you may be considering omitting meat from your diet. Many restaurants and supermarkets now offer protein alternatives to make your decision easier. But is a vegetarian diet healthier? Learn about the pros and cons of a diet for vegetarian or vegan vs. a meat-eater to inform you as you consider changing your lifestyle.

Although all vegetarians avoid eating meat, poultry and sometimes fish, there are many different variations of the vegetarian diet.

  • Vegans are total vegetarians who do not eat any animal products such meat, poultry and fish, including dairy products, eggs and honey.
  • Lacto vegetarians avoid all meat, poultry, fish and eggs, but they consume dairy products.
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarians don’t eat the flesh of any animal. No meat, poultry or fish, but eggs and dairy products are acceptable.
  • Ovo vegetarians eat eggs but refrain from eating meat, poultry, fish and dairy products.
  • Pesco vegetarians or pescatarians avoid meat but may eat fish.
  • Pollo-vegetarians don’t eat red meat but eat poultry.

How Many People Are Vegetarians?

Approximately 8 million adults in the U.S. do not eat meat, poultry or fish, according to the 2016 National Harris Poll published by the Vegetarian Resource Group. About one-half of vegetarians are also vegans — approximately 3.7 million U.S. adults.

Vegetarians, including vegans, make up the following percentages of the U.S. population:

  • 3.2 percent are adult males
  • 3.5 percent are adult females
  • 5.3 percent are ages 18 to 34
  • 3.1 percent are ages 35 to 44
  • 2.2 percent are ages 45 to 54
  • 1.8 percent are over age 65

Additionally, an increasing number of people have omitted or cut back on red meat consumption but still eat chicken and fish. Statistics show that 37 percent of Americans often or always eat vegetarian meals when dining out. This has major implications on the food and restaurant industry, which must offer meat alternatives and vegetarian dishes.

Reasons Why People Go Vegetarian

People choose to eat vegetarian for a variety of reasons. The Humane Research Council took a survey of the primary and contributory motivations for individuals to become vegetarians. Most people have multiple reasons for their transition, but the following are some of the more common:

  • Compassion for animals
  • To eat a generally healthier diet
  • To avoid additives and antibiotics in meat
  • A dislike for the taste of meat
  • To reduce impact on the environment
  • To reduce disease, like cancer and diabetes
  • For religious convictions
  • To eat less expensively
  • To lose weight
  • To reduce intake of cholesterol and fat

Are Vegetarians Healthier?
