Career Boosting Foods--TV Video

Career-Boosting Foods for the Successful Business Man or Woman
Corporately speaking, long hours have become a badge of honor for some. Forty hour weeks are relics of the past. Now American businessmen are putting in 50, 60, and 70 hours a week to boost their careers.At work, do you feel like you are mentally swimming through Jell-O? Are you cognitively challenged? Are your competition and peers sprinting past you? It might just be what you are or are not feeding your brain. You might be eating foods that are depleting your mind and body.We need to understand that there are different systems within the body and that they work independently and together to form a functioning human body. Each system needs it's own group of vitamins and minerals.The digestive system will be busy at work on your chewed-up Steak and Fettuccine lunch for the next few hours - or sometimes days - depending upon what you've eaten. This zaps your energy level.Proper digestion, allows your body to obtain the essential nutrients and energy it needs from the quality of the food you eat. If you are going to eat that 'super sized' steak at lunch, then balance it with an equal amount of undercooked, fresh vegetables. What can you do? Other than a brain transplant, the first step is to consciously put your health first. That means getting enough sleep, eating in accordance with our design, and getting daily, aerobic exercise.Therefore, an executive needs to focus on whole foods and avoid junk, instant gratification cookies, and a candy bar for a burst of temporary energy.I can help: (317)-635-7006. I want to talk to your employees.

Snacks for work:
Just say no to sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup in soft drinks and candy bars in the afternoon. No bagels either---pure glucose. A 5 oz. plain bagel contains 500 calories without topping. Health food? Poppycock!
A bag of plain almonds or walnuts, Cliff Bars, Granola, Carrot, red pepper, celery sticks, broccoli and cauliflower tops. A bottle of water, Organic Dates, Yogurt or Kefir—delicious Probiotics that strengthen immune response, Smucker's 'Natural" Peanut Butter and Smucker's no-sugar added jellies. An apple or two plus any seasonal fresh fruit. Use peanut butter on the apple. Dried fruit and nuts, Hummus and W/W pita chips
Eat for Success in the Business World--When you are healthy, you explode with boundless mental and physical energy.
1. FILL UP on the most nutritious foods first (fresh fruits and vegetables), then eat other foods.
2. Eat only whole fruit in the morning . If you have diabetes or specific health issues, consult your doctor. Stop eating fruit one hour before lunch. Don’t eat fruit with other foods (it makes other foods ferment or roting causing gas and interference to digestion).
3. Eat until you are “satisfied" in your brain, not “stuffed" in your stomach.
4. For lunch, almost ALWAYS eat one large, green-leafy, vegetable salad with at least 10 different fresh vegetables (count them). If you are still hungry, then eat something else.
5. For dinner, almost ALWAYS fill up on a vegetable salad and vegetables first (such as steamed or baked). Then eat other foods.
6. Before you put something into your mouth, ask yourself, “Is this food FEEDING me or DEPLETING me?" Enjoy the video.
