Recently on gimme5:
Warning, I'm going a "little bit" into detail in this post, bacause many of my friends were asking me these things in real life before, so maybe this is interesting for you as well. If you get bored, don't read the fine print.
1. Which beverage do you drink daily?
Tap water. Sometimes pure apple or orange juice.
A human body needs about 3 quart of water every day to flush out poison. Pure juices contain healthy minerals, vitamins and much more.
2. Tell us a meal you consider to be healthy.
Appetizer: Sliced tomatos with mozzarella cheese and basil, and some olives with garlic
Tomatos contain much Lycopene, which can prevent cancer of the pancreas, colon, bile, lung, skin and prostate, and it keeps the skin young. Tomatos also contain Tyrosine which makes you happy. Mozzarella cheese is a source of Proteine and Calcium, which is good for the immune system and many other vital bodily functions. Basil prevents the cells from damage caused by stress, it releases tension and is good for your memory. Olives contain much healthy mono-unsaturated fat to prevent heart attacks. Garlic goes well with olives, and it contains Adenosine to prevent heart attacks, strokes and thrombosis, and a special sulfur compound prevents prostate cancer.
Entree: Fried salmon with pasta and broccoli, one glass of red wine
Salmon contains a high amount of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are an important construction material for body cells, and they fight arteriosclerosis. Pasta is a side dish that doesn't raise your blood sugar too much (compared to potatos, fries, bread or rice). Broccoli has much Vitamin C, orange Carotenoids, green chlorophyll and Glucosinolates, which all prevent cancer, it also has much chromium which supports the insulin in lowering the blood sugar level. Red wine contains flavonoids that clean veins; Phenols prevent dangerous deposits in veins and keep the blood sugar level low; Salicylic acids reduce the risk of strokes; Resveratrol prevents cancer and cures inflammation; the Alcohol increases metabolism.
Dessert: Cottage cheese with fresh berries, little honey and coconut
Cottage cheese is a good source of proteine without fat. Proteine is important for the muscles and much more. Fresh berries are anti-aging-drugs, they have many vitamins and minerals, which are healthy, no doubt about that. Additionally, they contain Myricetin which boosts fat burning. Honey doesn't raise the blood sugar level too much, and contains vitamins, minerals and can fight germs. Coconut contains much Selenium which is one of the most important elements against cancer and a boost for the immune defence. While people in Northern America usually get enough Selenium in their food, people in Europe suffer under deficiency.
3. Tell us a meal you consider to be unhealthy.
Appetizer: Garlic bread
White bread contains much starch, which is actually just a kind of sugar. It raises the level of blood sugar very fast, which leads to a too high insulin level. While the blood contains much insulin, body cells take the sugar and the fat out of the blood and place it on your hips. I.e. the bread and the butter take the highway to your hips and will rest there. Additionally, because there was too much insulin, the blood suger level will decrease too much wich makes you nervous and hungry again.
Entree: Double cheese pizza, a glass of beer
Same problem here, too much insulin caused by the crust of the pizza, and too much fat from the cheese goes directly to your hips. Beer is the worst aliment in raising the blood sugar level, it just helps the crust of the pizza. If it's a frozen pizza (convenience food), it also may contain trans fats which can cause heart attacks, strokes, arteriosclerosis and much more.
Dessert: Apple crisp and ice cream
Same principle again, too much sugar, too much insulin, too much fat.
4. What do you like better, tee or coffee?
Actually I like both, but I trink way more tee.
Both contain caffeine which increases metabolism. They contain tanning agents that may prevent cancer. However, too much caffeine dehydrates and flushes out minerals.
5. What's your secret recipe to cure a hangover?
I've never had a real hangover (yes, I'm so boring). But I can give you my secret recipe how I prevent a hangover.
Before you're having a party fill up your minerals. Alcohol destroys Magnesium and dehydrates, so you have to drink much water and take a Magnesium pill. Since Zinc is a part of alcohol dehydrogenase, take that too, it helps the liver to break down alcohols which could otherwise be toxic. And take Nux Vomica, it is a homeopathic drug against hangover. Take it before the party starts, and again before you go to bed. This should do the trick.
