    Nobody brags about eating junk. A healthy diet includes veggies and eschews too much sugar, and if you eat that way, you can feel satisfied that you are eating “clean.” But you know what? Eating clean is a trap.   Sure, it feels good to eat a “clean” meal or two. Nevermind that there’s no consistent definition of “clean.” I liked the word when I first heard it, because I took it to mean unprocessed foods (fresh vegetables, home-cooked meals) and it wasn’t wedded to any particular theory, like eating low-carb or low-fat. But the same vagueness that was once its appeal has been co-opted. Now anything can be clean if it’s sold by someone standing on a beach looking gorgeous.   This was probably inevitable. For years we’ve heard that diets don’t work; what you need to be healthy is a lifestyle change. So, breed that mostly sensible concept with our modern craze for the all-around enviable lifestyle, and what you get is an influencer (Instagrammer, movie star, supplement huckster, et. al.) who can paint you a picture of the amazing person you will be if you eat what they eat.   Here’s how the appeal works: each guru presents a simple idea held up by a scaffolding of half truths and cherry picked data. Debunk one small pillar, and the others still stand. Nobody has time to debunk them all, and if you try, you look like a killjoy. But from a distance, that one big idea looks like a beacon of clarity in a confusing world.   Here are some examples: You just need to eat nothing but vegetables. Or avoid most vegetables. Or cut out gluten. Or eliminate dairy, grains, and sugar. These aren’t variations on one basic idea of healthy eating; they’re each a different gimmick masquerading as common sense. Bee Wilson writes in The Guardian that we’ve been snookered by a “dream of purity in a toxic world” and “[w]e are so unmoored that we will put our faith in any master who promises us that we, too, can become pure and good.”   This fantasy backfires, though, when we look at the foods and diets and people who don’t qualify as “clean.” Does that mean that other foods, and the people who eat them, are “dirty”? It’s not like quinoa is that different from rice, or sweet potatoes are that different from regular potatoes. Coconut sugar is far more expensive than regular sugar, as Wilson points out, but nutritionally almost identical.   The same goes for processed food. It’s not as if processing is inherently bad. (Cooking is a form of processing, after all). Twinkies, for example, aren’t “unclean.” They’re just high in sugar and low in a lot of healthy nutrients, so it makes sense not to eat too many of them. Without the halo of clean eating, we’re back to evaluating foods on their merits, and figuring out whether they fit into the diet that makes sense for each of us. Sorry if that’s less romantic

    I used to get in debates almost every time I drank whiskey on whether or not it was appropriate to add water to the stuff. A few aficionado friends would always argue that the only way to drink whiskey was straight up, and I was ruining it with a few drops of H2O. I’d argue most whiskeys were a bit better with a few cubes of ice or a tiny bit of water. The fact of the matter is you should enjoy it however you prefer it, but now there’s actual science to back up my water claims.   To be fair, I’m far from the first person who has claimed water improves the taste of whiskey. While once taboo, connoisseurs have been embracing the fact that water can release some of a whiskey’s aromatics and enhance its flavor for a while. When I was traveling in Scotland earlier this year, distilleries actually provided tiny water pitchers with every tasting and encouraged drinking some bottles a little diluted. We all know some whiskey can taste a bit better that way; however, a group of Swedish scientists actually set out to discover why.   According to their research, the ethanol and guaiacol molecules in whiskey stick together, and they don’t really mix uniformly with water. Guaiacol is the stuff that gives something like scotch whisky a smoky smell and taste.   Researchers found that when water is added to a whiskey, the guaiacol molecules make their way to the top of the glass rather than remaining evenly distributed throughout. That means you’re getting more of that smell and taste up front when you take a sip.   The higher the ethanol concentration is of the whisky when it’s bottled, the more it will benefit from having a few drops of water added when it comes time to drink it. According to the study, Cask-strength whiskeys (which tend to be higher in alcohol than others) in particular can benefit from a tiny bit of dilution in order to increase “the propensity of taste compounds at the liquid-air interface.” Read: the flavor you taste when you drink it.   Does that mean you have to add water to every whiskey? Absolutely not. I always suggest that when someone is trying a whiskey for the first time, they pour a small amount and drink it straight up. Afterwards, try another tiny portion with a few drops of water and decide which version you like best. Let me emphasize the few drops part. Don’t add more water than you have whiskey (or do, but I can’t support you in that endeavor).   I’ll add a small amount of water to most scotch whiskeys, but when it comes to Japanese whiskey I prefer to drink them straight up rather than adding anything or putting them in cocktails. In the end, it’s all up to your personal preference.   That said, if you’re a water fan sometimes like me, it’s nice that we have a little science to back us up in that next bar fight.

    Liver & Kidney Cleansing A simple approach People talk about liver and kidney cleansing in ways that conjure up pictures of driving to something like a carwash, attaching the liver and kidneys to a washing machine, and happily picking them up “cleansed” after a quick and powerful scrub. Unfortunately, liver and kidney cleansing isn’t that easy. Dozens of different liver cleansing programs are available. Despite the range of options, they all boil down to basic diet changes and some health-enhancing supplements. More radical cleanses, such as coffee enemas; master cleanses using cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and maple syrup; and liver flushes using olive oil and Epsom salts are definitely not recommended, because they could land people in hospital emergency rooms. Instead of these extreme cleanses, take a simple approach. Liver cleansing  Let’s start with the liver. From a medical standpoint, a liver that requires cleansing might reveal itself through a collection of blood tests collectively called “liver function tests.” An ultrasound of the liver could show one of two largely asymptomatic liver problems: benign tumours, afflicting one in 10 Canadians; or a condition called nonalcoholic fatty-liver disease (NAFLD), afflicting three out of every eight Canadians. More general indicators may also suggest a liver cleanse would be beneficial (see “Signs a liver cleanse is needed” below). To flush the liver, avoid animal products and eat mainly high-fibre fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and legumes (see “Raw foods to support liver cleansing” below). Drink 6 to 12 cups (1.5 to 3 L) of filtered or healthy spring water daily because it helps flush out toxins. Avoid saturated fats, refined sugar, and alcohol. Enjoy vegetable juices such as beets, celery, and carrots, but do not focus the diet solely on these juices, as not everyone will find a juice-based cleanse to be convenient. If possible, make use of the far infrared sauna every two or three days to safely remove stored toxins from the body. Kidney cleansing  When indicators suggest a kidney cleanse is in order, the most important thing to do is to drink adequate amounts of water (8 cups or 2 L of filtered or healthy spring water daily) to flush out unwanted waste and improve circulation to the organ. Follow a low-protein diet as much as possible, especially avoiding animal protein of any kind, including milk, dairy products, eggs, poultry, fish, and seafood, as these foods are high in phosphorus and encourage calcium deposition. Also avoid rhubarb, chocolate, and all caffeinated products, as these foods increase calcium oxalate or uric acid in the kidneys and could elicit a kidney stone attack in susceptible people. Also enjoy cranberry, pomegranate, and blueberry juices, which enhance kidney function, and supplement with essential nutrients (see “foods to optimize kidney health” below). Guidelines for any cleanse Most healthy people can follow these cleansing guidelines for a period of two or three weeks. Those with more serious health issues, such as cancer, diabetes, or congestive heart failure, should check with their natural health care practitioner before beginning a cleanse, as the herbs and diet involved could negate prescribed medications. There are really no good tests to see if a liver or kidney flush is complete, but most people can tell it’s time to stop by the way they feel. Symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, abdominal discomforts, and skin problems should all be improved. Headaches and weakness may be early signs of detoxification and are not a reason to stop any cleanse. A cleanse should be stopped if more serious symptoms occur, such as vomiting, fever, or severe abdominal pain. Both liver and kidney cleanses can be optimized by avoiding food allergens. Ask your natural health care practitioner about conducting food allergy testing before starting any specific dietary regime. Raw foods to support liver cleansing apples beets broccoli brown rice Brussels sprouts cabbage caraway seeds carrots dandelion oat bran onions spinach tomatoes walnuts herbs and spices such as turmeric, cinnamon, and licorice Signs a liver cleanse is needed overweight or suffering from obesity chronic fatigue or just feeling out of sorts diabetes or hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) nausea or other chronic digestive symptoms gallstones hepatitis thyroid condition psoriasis high cholesterol readings trouble sleeping for no apparent reason heavy use of alcohol, drugs, or anabolic steroids regular use of birth control pills, or hormone replacement therapy food, chemical, and environmental allergies fibromyalgia or autoimmune disorders Foods to support any cleansing program artichokes asparagus garlic Signs a kidney cleanse is needed kidney stones water retention or edema recurrent bladder or kidney infections frequent use of prescription or over-the-counter analgesics, especially acetaminophen type 2 diabetes Foods to optimize kidney health algae products such as spirulina, chlorella, and blue green algae bananas celery cucumbers legumes and seeds papaya parsley potatoes pumpkin prouts watercress watermelon

    British national Jack Wolf appears at Kibera law courts for allegedly trafficking 99.7 kg cocaine worth Sh598 million   A British national charged with trafficking 99.7 kg cocaine worth Sh598 million has been released on a Sh70 million bond.   Jack Wolf, who appeared at Kibera law courts on Monday, was also released on two Kenyan sureties of a similar amount.   The court declined to stay the ruling for a week to enable a move to the High Court as requested by the Director of Public Prosecutions.   The case will be mentioned on August 23.   Wolf, 31, was charged last week alongside Francis Mwanthi before Kibera senior resident magistrate Derrick Kuto.   More on this: Briton charged with trafficking Sh598 million Mombasa cocaine haul   The court heard that the two and accomplices trafficked the cocaine concealed in container number MEDU 3333950, through the Kilindini port on July 29. They denied the charges.   It had been estimated that the drugs found disguised as sugar were worth Sh360 million.   The vessel was furtively sneaked out of the Mombasa Port following fears that it could be blown.   Suspicion arose after another vessel MSC Nicole, which docked at berth number 16, was hastily ordered to offload its cargo.   Detectives later said the vessel was spotted in Mogadishu and may have been used to transport weapons to terror group al Shabaab.

    The number one cause of obesity is something known as “emotional eating.” Many people have heard this term, but few are aware of just how strong a hold it has on their health and well-being. If food is your way of dealing with stress and anxiety, you are not alone. That said, you don’t have to continue to fall prey to getting your emotional support from overeating.   Here are some steps that can help you avoid the pitfalls of emotional eating.   1. Discover Your Triggers:Get out a piece of paper and spend some time considering what it is that actually triggers you. What is the source of your emotional discomfort? Think about all the different life situations you’ve been through, especially the ones that left you feeling hurt, upset, angry or alone. Divorce? Write it down. Childhood abuse? Write it down. Make a note of all the difficult emotional times you have experienced. Your emotional eating triggers are rooted in these upsetting events and traumas from your past, even if they occurred long ago. Beginning to become aware of the emotional baggage that you carry will help you to recognize when some of these old issues are being activated by events in the present. This is the first step to altering how you respond to these triggers in the present.   2. Keep an Eating Journal:Many weight-loss programs suggest that you write down what you eat. This is similar, but instead of simply writing down the food you are consuming, write down what you were feeling and thinking when you ate it. What inner voice were you trying to silence when you ate that tub of ice cream or that whole box of cookies? What stress were you trying to deal with? Making the connection between your eating habits and your emotions is a huge key to breaking away from unhealthy eating patterns.   3. Start Listening to Your Body:This is the most important step of all. Believe it or not, your body is constantly communicating with you and telling you what is helping it and what it hurting it. The trick is to tune in and pay attention to the signals it is giving so you can provide it with what it really needs rather than covering up the emotional hurt or aches and pains with unhealthy foods. It is possible to find out exactly what your body is telling you by using the energy that flows around and through your body. This energy field can tell you quite clearly what it "thinks" about that tasty morsel you're about to put into your mouth! The simplest way to get in touch with the energy of your body is to use what is called the “Sway Test.”   Here is how it works! Turn off the TV and any music playing so that you can focus entirely on the test. Stand in a relaxed posture, with your feet shoulder-width apart. Drop your hands to your side and close your eyes, allowing yourself to completely relax. Notice that your body will tend to gently sway forward if you are thinking about food that your subconscious mind wants, and that it will sway backward if you are thinking about foods that you perceive to be harmful!   Try thinking about the word "salad." Imagine the most delicious, healthy salad that you've ever eaten. When your innermost self-connects with the thought of all the fiber, vitamins, minerals and nutrients that go along with that salad, your body will begin to sway forward.   Allow yourself to return to a central, relaxed position. Now focus your mind on your favorite guilty food pleasure. As you think about this ultimate form of junk food, realize that your subconscious is somehow aware of all the artificial ingredients in that product, the humectants, the preservatives, the food colorings and so on, that contribute to your weight gain.   The moment your subconscious makes the connection with the energy of that junk food, your body will start to sway backward in an attempt to move you further away from eating something that is bad for you. This exercise typically doesn't take more than 5 – 10 seconds and it gets easier with practice. Most people have no difficulty with it. Just relax completely and focus your mind in a powerful way upon whatever food you choose. Test your food in this way before you eat it. It may just surprise you to find that your body actually wants to have a choice in what you are eating!

    I started how to make my manhood better on account of this product, I noticed the Bathmate about 21 days ago and was stunned the primary time I made use of it. This really is without question the most effective erection enhancement piece of equipment I've ever used. The outcome is bona fide and the better part is they are instantaneous! I had to disclose my great success with all of you who are searching endlessly for that real true invention to get your hands on.I have used the Bathmate pump for approximately 30 days and now have seen drastic modifications in that limited time span. My male organ has turned out to be almost 6.80 inches long and 5.5 in thickness! The Bathmate's results are immediate, the first go around you utilize it you will notice an improvement. The effects are brief however, with continuous use you'll typically accomplish long-lasting results. I really like utilising the Bathmate pump since it's just for 20-25 minutes and your done. You do not have to wear it for several hours like all those stretching gadgets. I love to use it in the shower, I put it on and merely let it hang there. In the event i do not want to take a prolonged wash down I get out with it on, dry off and take a walk around with the device. The next step you realize 20-25 minutes have passed and boom! Ones own johnson is larger.Your penis is divided into 3 compartments - 2 larger ones on top, that's your erection tissues and one lesser chamber on the bottom that you simply urinate as well as unload from. Specially when you get an erection, your personal brain releases a bodily hormone, which sends blood to your erection, filling your erection tissues. The blood spaces in the corpora cavernosa fill to the optimum, triggering a harder erection.The Bathmate pump works by creating a vacuum with water which can enlarge the muscle tissues in your penis. As time goes by, with constant use, the cellular material are actually completely lengthened inducing the penis to get larger and extended. But they are in addition, the creation in the body tissues allow considerably more blood to enter your penis; accordingly causing harder erections. The same like weight lifting. for your penis. In short, it's going to carefully increase the tissues located within the penis giving sizable growth in length in addition to thickness.The Bathmate Hydromax Pump makers declare that in most cases the average user can anticipate to see any where from one to three inches in length with up to a 50% increasing amount of width. The increase is in both the erect in addition to limp states. Let me tell you from personal use that this first change I discovered with the erectile organ was in its flaccid state, before I actually had obtained any fullness or distance end to end I have found in terms of a week and a half into making use of Bathmate that my male organ was hanging in its limp position in the region of 45% bigger.
