2 Vital Health Questions Answered

Posted on the 13 November 2011 by Harvey87 @JamesHarvey87

Here I have another short blog answering a couple of questions I have been asked myself, as well as seeing them in various magazines and websites.

Along with reading the blogs I publish, check out the adverts at the side and between the blogs. These will show you equipment, supplements, additional advice and much more!

So here we go, the first question I'll be answering today is one asked quite frequently.

Q. Is chicken a better choice than beef? A. All in all the answer is not about whether chicken is a healthier choice than beef, its all about how the animal has been raised. Free-range chicken is extremely healthy! The cheaper version has 266% more fat than it did in 1971 according to studies from the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition! Again with beef, grass-fed is better than grain-fed, with 27% less fat and 10% more protein. Its important when shopping to check different products and their nutritional information. You will find the healthier more expensive!

And the second question is; Q. 'is brown rice a lot healthier than white rice?' A. It sure is! The extra fiber content ensures you feel fuller for longer. But if this fiber is removed (as with white rice), rising blood sugar triggers a flood of insulin from the pancreas, which encourages the body to store fat. Studies showed that people eating wholegrains lost 2.4 times more fat!

I hope these questions and answers were helpful and please leave comments and check back soon for more blogs.
