Glorious Fiber

 Fiber, ahh that lovely, but ever so vague, fiber. "Is this," one may ask, "like the fibers of my pants, or the fiber arts?" No, this is fiber, as in roughage, as in the plant matter in vegetables, grains, and fruits. It must be added that this is far preferable to fiber, as in Metamucil, slippery elm bark, or psyllium husks, though they have their place of value. The advised path is to stick with the fruit, vegetable and grain fibers, at every meal, to support good health and interestingly enough, to help fight cancers.

The fibrous part of plants serves many purposes for the plants and for humans. For instance, the bulk of an orange's vitamin C content is actually in the fibrous white lining of the peel, so eat that for your 'C' rather than drinking orange juice. Eating the 'whole' edible part of the plant ensures that you get the full nutrient content as well as any beneficial medicinal content. Also of great importance is the fact that the plant fiber helps keep your intestines and bowel scrubbed clean of fecal matter and other toxic build-up, which could otherwise poison your body, and even cause cancer.

Risks of Red Meat

The phrase "metabolic syndrome" is used to describe having three or more high risk factors for developing heart disease or diabetes.  These risk factors include obesity, high triglyceride levels, too  much bad cholesterol, too little good cholesterol, and high blood sugar levels.  Eating two servings of meat per day increases the risk of metabolic syndrome by 26%, according to a study published in Circulation in January of 2008.  Red meat is particularly likely to contribute to this risk. The big danger foods?  Red meat, fried foods, soda, and heavily processed foods.

This is certainly not the only arena in which red meat is associated with health risks.  Red meat eaters are twice as likely to get colon cancer.  Research has also shown a positive correlation between red meat consumption and rheumatoid arthritis and endometriosis.  The frequency of consumption and the source of the  meat, especially conventionally raised meat, both play a role.

While you may not be able to switch genetics with J.Lo, you can maximize your rear view with these easy additions to your daily routine:
1. Take the stairs: Forgo the elevator and take the stairs at the office, at home or at the mall or airport. To really work the glutes, put your complete foot on the stair.
2. Sumo squats: Stand with your legs wider than your hips with the toes pointing out. Stand straight and tuck the pelvis under. Plie the knees lowering yourself 3-8 inches depending on your strength. Start with two sets of 10 and increase as you get stronger.
3. Lunges: Lunges are a challenging exercise because they work so many muscles at the same time. On the front leg, you'll work the glutes and hamstrings and, on the back leg, you'll work the quads and calves.
