For optimal health, eat living foods HEALTH AND FITNESS CHUCK NORRIS Q: Chuck, did you hear about the nutritionist who recently lost 27 pounds by eating nothing but Twinkles? What do you think about that? Trevor W., Jacksonville, Fla. A: It's true. It was reported recently how a health profes- sor at Kansas State Universi- ty lost 27 pounds in two months by living on his so- called Twinkle diet. As appealing as that may be for some, however, I'm sure I don't need to convince most that just because one loses weight on a diet of junk consumptives doesn't mean that it's good for one's body. If that's the case, I'm going to write a book on the pinecone diet! Ever read the ingredients in a Twinkie? It's probably best that you don't. BEST BI n In previous articles, I have started detailing the essen- tials of a better you. The ba- sic but building principles come from a great nutritional source, Dr. Don Colbert's "The Seven Pillars of Health., You may be getting full from food daily, but if you're like most Americans, your body is deprived of the nutri- ents it needs to be healthy. Foods with the vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nu- trients you need are what Colbert and others call "live foods," which are fruits, veg- a variety of foods from the five basic food groups. The American Heart Associa- tion's website offers a gro- cery list of more than 800 foods from those five groups that are low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Similarly, the American Academy of Family Physicians' website offers some excellent tips for a heart-healthy diet. It often has been said you'll know the living foods in your grocery because they are / along the outside p rameters inside the store, Most of the processed, salt- and sugar- etables, grains, seeds andfilled proclu cts are nuts. He saYs {hat'weal]~g-eh-' : SideS[~el~c~S~: 3,'~. erally have two shelves in our pantries, one for living foods and one for dead foods. You'll know them by their "fruit," or what they produce. "Dead foods" make you more disease-prone; cause de- generative diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular dis- ease and arthritis; and make you gain weight. They also make you fatigued and prone to hypertension and high cholesterol. "Living foods" protect your body from cancer, heart dis- ease, all degenerative dis- eases and obesity, and they sharpen your mind, energize you and enliven you. It is important that you eat First Thursday of every month "Martini Madness" A(,O Open bowling 6 dayse v %ek Full bar $ 2 Draft Easy walking'distance 2 Fulli Brunswick pool tables : oC rcade Almanor Bowling 376 Main St., Chester 258.4300 on the in- Once upon a time, long be- fore the world of fast-food restaurants, live foods were not always fresh and some- times scarce; they were the only foods most cultures con- sumed. For example, as far back as Jesus' day, daily bread was good bread. At the two meals each day, bread was the main food back then. The light breakfasts -- often flatbread, olives and cheese (from goats or sheep) -- were carried to work and eaten at midmorning. Dinners were more substantial, consisting of vegetable (lentil) stew, bread (barley for the poor, wheat for the rich), fruit, eggs and/or cheese. Fish was a common staple, but red meat was reserved for special occasions. Locusts were a del- icacy and reportedly taste like shrimp. (Bet you thought I was going to say chicken!) Of course, Jews then wouldn't have known they tasted like shrimp, because shrimp and all other crus- taceans were "unclean." Bottom line: If you want to live oPtimally, you need to consume fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products daily. Wal- nuts and almonds are the king and queen of the nuts: And try to eat fish twice a week, especially salmon. Fish contains omega-3 fatty acids, which lower the risk of coro- nary artery disease. Reduce your consumption of foods andbeverages that are high in calories, salt, sugars, trans fats and saturated fats. Stop to read the labels. If you can't even pronounce the ingredi- ents going into your body, then why are you putting them in there? Put succinctly, we Would be very wise to follow the an- cient wisdom of Hippocrates: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." And I can absolutely assure you that when Hippocrates prescribed that, he didn't have a Twinkle in mind. Write to Chuck Norris (in- with your questions about health and fitness.
