Hoodia Gordonii to Suppress Appetite - Hype or Help?



by EzekielDiet.com
Posted on Feb 26, 2015

What did I do about food cravings in the early weeks of changing my diet?

I’ve used numerous weight loss systems through the years. Like HerbaLife, I didn’t sell it, but it helped me lose 30 to 40 extra pounds every 3 or 4 years.  The problem was when you stop using it the results slowly disappear. I learned it was a good way to detox and clean and flush the body out every few years.

HerbaLife proved to me, based on my own personal experience,  that there are herbal products available that will make the process of losing weight a bit easier.

I listened to a radio program called Duke and the Doctor where Jan McBarron, M.D. was talking about Hoodia as a way to deal with hunger and food cravings while trying to lose weight.  I tried it and it seemed to help me transition into this new system of eating. It’s not a weight loss miracle pill, but I’m reasonably sure I was buying a brand with pure ingredients. I took it mid morning and mid afternoon.

I understand Hoodia is not a stimulant so it doesn’t work on your nervous system like phen phen or ephedra. It somehow works on the the part of the brain that controls appetite and cravings.

I’ve read reports about blind studies where the group taking Hoodia actually consumed 1,000 less calories a day than the controlled group using a placebo.

Here’s a short 60 Minutes clip where Lesley Stahl explores the Kalahari Desert of Africa for its unique Hoodia plant – a possible breakthrough against obesity.

Research Confirms Sweating Detoxifies Dangerous Metals, Petrochemicals



New research is revealing something remarkable about why the body sweats. Beyond its obvious role in regulating body temperature, sweating has been found to facilitate the elimination of accumulated heavy metals and petrochemicals, indicating that if we want to be healthy we should put regular effort into doing more sweating.

Commentary on the Key Points and Secrets of The Ezekiel Diet



This blog is an ongoing journal about my research into how to lose weight and keep it off, or maintain a healthy weight. It’s over 40 years of weight loss experience. Maybe you can spare yourself some of the key points and secrets I missed in that 40 years that kept me from maintaining my ideal weight.

I’m in my mid 50s and in March of 2010 I embarked on another of many weight loss programs to try and lose the extra weight I’d accumulated and once again, try to keep it off.

I was easily 100 pounds overweight with sleep apnea, heel spurs, high blood pressure, rapid pulse, and knees that ached from all the extra weight.

I lost a pound a day for 45 days and another 55 pounds in 105 days. A total of 100 pounds in 5 months. I went from 325 pounds with 62 inch shoulders and a 52.5 inch waist to 225 pounds with 50 inch shoulders and a 38 inch waist. I’ve never lost this much weight in my life. I didn’t even believe what I did was possible.

EZ Breakfast Ideas on the Ezekiel Diet



Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but many people skip this meal. In fact, studies have shown that less than 40 percent of Americans eat breakfast every day. Most people have very busy schedules, and that leaves little time to eat breakfast. However, you should try your best to eat a nutritious meal before you start your day. There are a number of benefits that you can reap from eating breakfast.

Below are some of those benefits:

6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition



By:Sayer Ji, Founder

It may come as a surprise to some, especially those with conventional medical training, but the default state of the body is one of ceaseless regeneration.  Without the flame-like process of continual cell turnover within the body – life and death ceaselessly intertwined – the miracle of the human body would not exist.

In times of illness, however, regenerative processes are overcome by degenerative ones. This is where medicine may perform its most noble feat, nudging the body back into balance with foods, herbs, nutrients, healing energies, i.e. healing intention. Today, however, drug-based medicine invariably uses chemicals that have not one iota of regenerative potential; to the contrary, they almost always interfere with bodily self-renewal in order to suppress the symptoms against which they are applied.

Despite the outright heretical nature of things which stimulate healing and regeneration vis-à-vis the conventional medical system which frowns upon, or is incredulous towards, spontaneous remission in favor of symptom suppression and disease management, over the course of the past few years of trolling MEDLINE we have collected a series of remarkable studies on the topic...

Nerve Regeneration – There are actually a broad range of natural compounds with proven nerve-regenerative effects. A 2010 study published in the journal Rejuvenation Research, for instance, found a combination of blueberry, green tea and carnosine have neuritogenic (i.e. promoting neuronal regeneration) and stem-cell regenerative effects in an animal model of neurodegenerative disease. [1] Other researched neuritogenic substances include:

  • Curcumin
  • Lion's Mane Mushroom
  • Apigenin (compound in vegetables like celery)
  • Blueberry
  • Ginseng
  • Huperzine
  • Natto
  • Red Sage
  • Resveratrol
  • Royal Jelly
  • Theanine
  • Ashwaganda
  • Coffee (trigonelline)
  • There is another class of nerve-healing substances, known as remyelinating compounds, which stimulate the repair of the protective sheath around the axon of the neurons known as myelin, and which is often damaged in neurological injury and/or dysfunction, especially autoimmune and vaccine-induced demyelination disorders.  It should also be noted that even music and falling in love have been studied for possibly stimulating neurogenesis, regeneration and/or repair of neurons, indicating that regenerative medicine does not necessary require the ingestion of anything; rather, a wide range of therapeutic actions may be employed to improve health and well-being, as well.

    [View the first-hand biomedical citations on these neuritogenic substance visit our Neuritogenic Research page on the topic]

    Liver RegenerationGlycyrrhizin, a compound found within licorice, and which we recently featured as a powerful anti-SARS virus agent,  has also been found to stimulate the regeneration of liver mass and function in the animal model of hepatectomy. Other liver regenerative substances include:

  • Carvacrol (a volatile compound in oregano)
  • Curcumin
  • Korean Ginseng
  • Rooibos
  • Vitamin E
  • [view the first-hand biomedical citations on the Liver Regeneration research page]

    Beta-Cell Regeneration – Unfortunately, the medical community has yet to harness the diabetes-reversing potential of natural compounds. Whereas expensive stem cell therapies, islet cell transplants, and an array of synthetic drugs in the developmental pipeline are the focus of billions of dollars of research, annually, our kitchen cupboards and backyards may already contain the long sought-after cure for type 1 diabetes. The following compounds have been demonstrated experimentally to regenerate the insulin-producing beta cells, which are destroyed in insulin dependent diabetes, and which once restored, may (at least in theory) restore the health of the patient to the point where they no longer require insulin replacement.

    Obesity Linked to Poor Sleep




    Obesity Linked to Poor Sleep

    Poor sleep and obesity are like two peas in a pod. If you don't sleep well, your chances of becoming overweight or obese become greater.

    This is the finding of research that has studied sleep habits together with relative weight and waist circumference among different populations.

    The most recent study comes from the College of Medicine at Korea University, where researchers conducted a nationwide study that included 9,077 adults.

    The research surveyed the participants and correlated the number of hours they slept a night together with their body mass index (BMI).

    The participants were divided into four categories that related both their weight and whether they had symptoms of metabolic disease – which include cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The calculated results also eliminated the effects of drinking, age, smoking and others.

    On the criteria of obesity alone, the researchers found that those who were obese slept on average 0.15 of an hour less than those who were not obese. And when their metabolic classifications were considered, those who were obese slept a cumulated average of 0.20 of an hour less than the normal weight participants.

    Many Other Studies Confirm This Association Between Obesity And Sleep

    This relationship of obesity and sleep duration is not limited to this study. Recently, a large meta-study published in the journal Sleep analyzed the results of 21 studies that included 56,259 people.

    The studies compared sleep duration with waist circumference – a more direct variable to obesity.

    The researchers found that the lower the sleep duration, the higher the waist circumference. The relationship was rated as significant to a factor that would have required 418 studies with no results to negate the relationship between the two.

    That means the relationship is pretty solid. Poor sleep relates directly to obesity.

    What About Oversleeping?

    One might wonder why I am saying "poor sleep" rather than simply "less sleep."

    The reason is because other research has shown that long sleep duration is also associated with obesity.

    This was determined in a study from Harvard Medical School in 2010. The researchers analyzed data from the 2004-2005 U.S. National Health Interview Survey, which included 56,507 adults between the ages of 18 and 85 years old.

    The research found that both short and long sleep duration was related to obesity, as well as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. They found that both less than seven hours and greater than eight hours were both linked to a greater risk, and that between seven and eight hours presented the least amount of risk in the greater population.

    This study found – as have others – that not getting enough sleep increases risk of obesity greater than oversleeping. But oversleeping still increases risk.

    This relationship also means that the studies above are minimizing the negative effect of not getting enough sleep – because the negative effects of getting too much sleep are also included in the same statistics.

    The Key Factor is Oxidative Stress

    The metabolic reasons for lack of sleep and too much sleep increasing the risk of obesity seem counter-intuitive but they are real. The reality is that our body works hard and smart when we are sleeping. Up to a point.

    Three proven ways to lose that stubborn belly fat




    (NaturalNews) Everyone knows that being overweight can increase our risk of serious health problems. However, most people don't realize that not all fat distribution is equal. Accumulating fat under our arms and thighs, for instance, is more of a cosmetic concern than a cause for significant medical alarm. Yes, we are better off without it and should endeavor to remove it, but fat in these areas is more likely to make us feel bloated rather than send us to the emergency room in the immediate future.

    In reality, the most serious problems associated with being overweight, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes, are overwhelmingly caused by a build-up of abdominal fat. Abdominal fat, which is also called belly fat or visceral fat, is the fat that lodges itself against our major organs and compromises their ability to function properly -- a state of affairs which, if left unchecked, can lead to an early death. Fortunately, the following lifestyle changes are known to help remove abdominal fat in a natural manner.

    Reduce carbohydrate intake

    Studies have shown that cutting carbs is an extremely effective way to lose abdominal fat. For example, a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that participants who restricted their carbohydrate intake over a 2-week period experienced significantly decreased liver triglycerides when compared to the control group.(1) Another study, published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism, discovered that there was a "clear benefit of a [very low carbohydrate ketogenic] over [low fat] diet for short-term body weight and fat loss, especially in men." Significantly, the low carb diet demonstrated a "preferential loss of fat in the trunk region."(2)

    Though there are numerous reasons why a reduction in carbs contribute to fat loss, perhaps the biggest one is that most carbs (especially whole grains) have an extremely high glycemic load. According to cardiologist Dr. William Davis, modern wheat is especially notorious in this regard, and eating too much of it can result in significant abdominal fat accumulation -- the dreaded "wheat belly."(3)

    Avoid refined sugar

    Refined sugar is one of the most destructive ingredients in the Standard American Diet, and countless studies link sugar consumption to overall weight gain. However, a study published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation has also shown that a consumption of sugar (specifically, fructose-sweetened beverages) is responsible for increasing abdominal fat in overweight and obese adults(4) -- a result that shouldn't really be surprising, since our livers are forced to turn fructose into fat when it is flooded with refined sugar. Therefore, losing those last few pounds of belly fat might be as simple as avoiding high-sugar processed foods in favor of whole foods.

    Engage in more aerobic exercise

    While all exercise can potentially remove belly fat in the long-term, aerobic exercise (such as running and swimming) seems to be especially effective in this regard. Research published in the International Journal of Obesity, for instance, showed a clear link between aerobic exercise and visceral fat reduction.(5) A review featured in Obesity Reviews reached a similar conclusion, noting that "aerobic exercise is central for exercise programmes aimed at reducing [visceral adipose tissue]"(6)

    400 Calorie EZ Meal on the Ezekiel Diet Files




    The Ezekiel Diet Files
    February 12, 2015

    This is 2 3 oz pre-grilled boneless, skinless chicken thighs (6 oz = 240 c), I med Tomato sliced (24 c), pre-grilled sweet potato slices (50 c), side salad w Organic Kale, strawberries, tomato, mushroom (60 c) Total Calories 374 - plus dressing and sauces.

    I used a zero calorie Walden Farms BBQ sauce, and a low calorie BoltHouse Italian dressing on the salad and tomato, so I was right at 400 calories, and filling.

    Pre-heat chicken thighs and sweet potato slices in a toaster oven for 10 minutes while you slice the tomato and make the side salad. 10 minutes prep, 10 minutes cook, 10 minutes eat and clean up.

    I found 3 packs of natural cleaner brand of chicken thighs marked down for quick sale close to the sell by date. It was about 24 3 to 4 ounce thighs I pre-grilled, wrapped in aluminum foil tightly (last 2+ weeks fresh looking wrapped this way) and put in a gallon freezer bag in the fridge. I also sliced and grilled 3  good sized organic sweet potatoes. So this meal is half leftover, half fresh vegetables.

    Two variations of a Man-Sized 500 Calorie Weight Loss EZ Meal

    8 ounces of chicken with yellow onion, and two different sauces. The brussel sprouts were twirled around in a dab of butter in the same hot pan used to steam them. I add a salad dressing to the sprouts and the broccoli. This is about twice the meat I normally consume and why it's 500 calories instead of 400.
