How to reduce chronic inflammation

How many of you have a family history of type II diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s and other neuro-degenerative diseases? All of these are Western diseases related to the way we live our lives and caused by a chronic inflammatory reaction. In previous years, diseases linked to chronic inflammation did not exist in any great number. At the beginning of the 1900s, people tended to die from infections such as tuberculosis, the flu, pneumonia and childbirth. So why are they on the increase now

Why we love eggs

We have been feeding ourselves on eggs for thousands of years and they have many nutritional highlights so is there any truth in the matter that we should be cutting them out of our diet? On The In-Sync Diet we feel that in the media they have unfairly received a bad press due to their cholesterol content. But there is no good evidence to suggest that egg consumption is detrimental to health and we don’t think so either.

Too stressed to digest

If you’re stressed, you can’t digest it is as simple as that. And if you can’t digest, you can’t absorb nutrients from the meals you throw down at the rate of knots because your time is snatched. And if you can’t absorb, you don’t have enough energy to keep juggling your busy lifestyle.

Keeping the weight off at Christmas

Keeping the weight off at Christmas can be difficult but it was not always the case. Way back in our evolutionary history, when we depended on foraging and hunting for subsistence, winter would have been a time for enforced fasting. This is simply because there would have not been enough food. During this harsh time of the year, we would have had to rely on stored energy – namely our protein and fat stores – not something we need to do in modern life.

American Brussels Sprout Salad Recipe

” I hate brussels sprouts! I’ve not eaten them since I was very young and was made to. However, when I was in California one time, I kept coming across brussels sprout salads. I thought it was beyond weird to have such a thing until I went to a friend’s house and she served a version of it. I tentatively had a mouthful and to my amazement loved it so much I went back for seconds ….. and then asked for the recipe….”

Ten reasons why we should be eating insects

The problem is I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here is dominating our screens at the moment and you probably cannot help imagining the horrors of what it might be like to take part in the dreaded Bushtucker Trials

What really was the caveman diet?

The caveman diet has been a subject of intrigue in the last few years, particularly as we know our genes belong to the Paleolithic era. But recent research does away with the myth that our early ancestors were hunting big game and eating huge quantities of red meat. In addition to significant amounts of fish, shell-fish and birds, we appear to have had a high plant based diet eating at least 55 different plant species per week.

Should you eat before a workout

We are told that we should eat before a workout because if we are hungry, we won’t have enough energy to move. But is this really the case? Your genes belong to an era 50 000 years ago which was a time when your ancient ancestors did not have the luxury of food availability – hunger was a signal to move and find food.

Saffron Chicken and Shiitake Soup

Shiitake mushrooms not only have incredible immune benefits, they can help fight cancer cells, support cardiovascular health, act as an antimicrobial and boost energy and brain function. They are rich in vitamin D, selenium and antioxidants that can protect the skin from getting wrinkles. Certain components of the shiitake mushroom are also known to benefit fat burn and increase satiety. Saffron is also a fantastic antioxidant that can destroy free radicals. And the root galangal, commonly found in Asian cooking, will give your blood circulation a boost bringing oxygen and nutrients to the skin, making it glow.

Seafood Soup

This immune-boosting seafood soup has two parts to it – the seafood soup and the garlic sauce. The garlic sauce is added to the soup at the very end to pack a more powerful punch. Garlic is a natural antimicrobial and has long history of use as an infection-fighter. It also appears to offer protection against heart disease and some cancers.

The healthy approach to a low carb high fat diet (LCHF)

There is a huge amount of research that suggests eating low carb high fat diet has benefits beyond simply weight loss and fat burn by pushing you into ketosis. Ketosis is a healthy state that we reach when fat is converted into ketones in the liver that can be used as an energy source during periods when the intake of carbohydrate is low. But the problem is that often people are cutting out vital plant foods for fear of not being able to reach ketosis. In this article we explore the reasons why a high plant food diet is so important and how you can eat plenty of them and still successfully follow a high fat low carb programme.

The benefits of a low carb higher fat diet

Calorie counting is a low carb/low fat/ low protein approach to counter weight gain that does not work at all because not all calories are created equal. And so, contrary to what we’ve been told for years, consuming fat provides an important fuel for the body and having a high carbohydrate diet may actually stop us from burning fat.

The 16:8 Diet

What is the 16:8 diet rule? Well a study in the Journal Nutrition and Healthy Aging has found that eating within an eight hour window and fasting for 16 hours can greatly benefit weight loss. This method is also known as intermittent fasting and is deservedly gaining popularity in recent years as a healthy way of going on a diet. It involves cutting down on the number of times you eat each day and having a long stretch of time where you do not eat at all.

A fit body is not just for the beach

A fit body is for life, not just the beach. If you have ever embarked on a dramatic weight loss diet to prepare for your beach holiday, you will know how difficult it is to keep that weight off. Once you are away, you allow yourself to indulge. When you come back you find that the weight has come creeping back. It feels completely unfair but when you look at what happens to your body on a ‘get skinny quickly’ programme, you will understand a fit body is for life, not just the beach.
