First minute:

The drink lands in your stomach. With no food it enters your bloodstream-to your liver. Now your liver has to work so hard to break down the  alcohol that it puts a hold on other key duties, such as processing calories.

In the next 30 minutes:

The liver converts the liquor into a known carcinogen called acetaldehyde and then breaks it down into acetate, which is a less harmful chemical. Because your liver is overwhelmed, the alcohol backs up in your bloodstream and shoots up to your brain, where it disrupts nerve cells in the hippocampus (which controls memory), the cerebellum ( which controls movement), and the prefrontal cortex (which controls mood).  As a result you may feel relaxed and suddenly charming. You may also feel warm and a bit flushed, thanks to expanded blood vessels in your skin. Now you have a sudden urge to pee. A potent diuretic, alcohol speeds up flow to the bladder. Meanwhile, if your margarita contained triple sec the added sugar content has caused an insulin spike, which may lead to sweating or eating salty foods.

60 minutes later:

The alcohol is neutralized, transformed by your liver from acetate to carbon dioxide (which you breathe out) and water (which you urinate). NOT GONE are the 400-plus calories you took in. With your liver otherwise occupied, your body stored the calories as tryglycerides (a type of fat). They are now tucked away mostly into cells around your abdomen. The unhealthiest  place on your body. So what’s it going to be; a glass of wine or a margarita?

If you are going to drink alcohol with a meal then you should try the Mediterranean diet because it will offer you fewer calories per meal than other diets.  You will find free information that will help you to a healthier lifestyle for staying healthy.

Food Healthy Eating

Hi there. Glad to see you on this page. I will be giving you information on various foods to help you lose weight and help you to a healthier lifestyle.
You can improve your cholestereol level by eating apples. A recent study by Florida State University found subjects who ate 75 grams of dried apple (about 2 fresh apples ) daily lowered their overall cholesterol levels by 23 percent. Apples contain a fiber called pectin, which may block the absorption of cholesterol. Of course apples alone will not help you to lose weight but they should be incorporated into your diet.
Try this simmple snack:
slice 1 apple into wedges
slice a couple pieces of Gouda cheese
if desired squeeze fresh lemon juice on the apples
sprinkle fresh gound cinnammon on apples.
Don’t forget the plate!

Yum, Yum. Gouda cheese is the healthier choice and I will explain why on the next blog. Remember to not go to the supermarket hungry!

Hi. My posts will offer you changes to your diet and will help you to lose weight. I will give you foods to incorporate into your weight loss program  and help you to a healthier lifestyle by eating the proper foods.

I will not go over the changes you need or suggest any particular plan because that information is readily available from many sources. So with that out-of-the-way, GO TAKE A HIKE! No; really , go take a hike. Put on your sweats and put your computer on standby and walk around the block.  Come back and finish reading this post. I will still be here.

A recent research done by Florida state University found that subjects who ate 75 grams of dried apple (about 2 fresh apples) daily lowered their cholesterol levels by 23 percent.  But what you eat is only part of the story . You need to increase your physical activity, and losing 10% of your body weight can boost HDL (good cholesterol) by 20 to 30%.

I know you probably go shopping several times a month and it is better to go grocery shopping when you are not hungry so eat an apple before you go. As a matter of fact, eat as many apples as you want! Everyone needs a little help so check out the link for a healthy lifestyle plus get FREE information on the link.
