Drinking Coffee for Health and Weight Loss

Like many topics and issues in the health and weight loss industry I believe drinking coffee for health and weight loss has been left unsettled with a growing controversy every day. People having all kinds of views whether bias or unbiased, has really made this topic difficult to come to a conclusion. So from all my research, studying, and experimenting I believe I have been able to come up with the unbiased truth on the topic drinking coffee for health and weight loss.

I would like to start off and put to rest some myths you might of heard that just seem to be used against coffee that have been proven wrong. So let me just quickly clear up these myths.

First, the caffeine in coffee does not increase the risk of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, liver injury, pancreatic cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, breast cancer incidence, or certain types of cancers. The truth is coffee actually decreases the risks or has absolutely no effect on these health conditions when coffee consumption is taken in moderation.

Second, the argument that declares coffee as a drug because of its drug like qualities like addiction, a stimulant, and mood altering. These things can become a problem without moderation a discipline but coffee being one of the healthiest beverages out there, I would rather have people drinking coffee than soda pops or sugar drinks.

Third, an excess of coffee increases urinary secretion of important minerals such as magnesium, potassium and sodium and uses up a fair amount of vitamin B1. These minerals and vitamins are very important to our body's health but that is why I like to bring up several tests that have been conducted which should clarify a few things. These test proved that people that drink coffee consume an average of 8 to 14% more minerals and vitamins than people that don't drink coffee. I don't know if coffee drinkers eat healthier or what but there mineral and vitamin loss is made up by consumption of food and daily multi-vitamins.

These myths have had an impact on the questions and controversy against coffee being benefial or not for healthy living and weight loss. I must point out that anything in excess is bad for you so when people say coffee is unhealthy, I can most of the time point out ten unhealthier things they do instead of drinking coffee.

Now that we are pasted that, let us focus on the advantages and disadvantages of coffee.

Advantages:

Coffee is actually one of the healthiest beverages billions of people consume regularly.
Coffee containing with bitter orange, hydroxycitric acid, and chromium can encourage an increase up to 30% in metabolic rate.
Coffee with exercise when taking 300mg averages a 20% increase in energy and fatigue while burning fat increased 107% greater than without caffeine.
Caffeine in coffee keeps our brains alert and receptive of new information.
Regular consumption of coffee decreases the risk of type II diabetes and many other health risks.

Disadvantages:

Coffee when consumed in excess can be addictive, stimulate, and a mood charger.
A large amount of coffee or caffeine consumed all at once can have a negative affect on blood sugar levels that influences fat burning that could change into storing fat.
Too much coffee over time can stain your teeth.

With so many benefits of coffee for health and weight loss it is hard to be worried about the few disadvantages when moderation can solve it all.

Step 1 Coffee Clean Up

Coffee when consumed straight and by itself it perfect. Having zero calories, zero carbs, and zero fats one can see that it would not hinder weight loss. When adding all that extra sugars, sweeteners, syrups, alcohol and so on just make it a high calorie dessert.

Sticking with regular or straight shots of coffee with limiting extras like milk and sweeteners is necessary for achieving healthy living and weight loss.

Step 2 - Coffee in Moderation

Too much coffee at one time can affect blood sugar levels so the easy fix is reducing your in take at one time. Spacing out your coffee in take throughout the day would be something to consider and would benefit as an appetite suppressant while reducing chances of increasing blood sugar.

Reducing your coffee in take might be a struggle and can possibly cause headaches and constipation but in the end is worth it.

Step 3 Limit Simple Carbs with Coffee

Avoiding or at least limiting simple carbs while drinking coffee would be wise as coffee can affect blood sugar negatively and adding simple carbs will just encourage an insulin spike.

Step 4 - Exercise

Exercise has so many benefits besides burning calories and suppressing your appetite. Exercise can also help regulate your body's use of insulin to keep blood sugar down and making coffee have little affect on your body. So make sure you participate in aerobic activities, lift some weights, and keep drinking that coffee and you should achieve weight loss in no time.

Don't let people tell you coffee is a bad drug and should be avoided at all costs. You know the truth that coffee actually has more benefits than negatives, so enjoy your coffee worry free about hindering for diet and weight loss goals.

Have a great day and God bless!

Spaceship-Like and Luxury Villa Nurbs Private House in Spain

You are watching the photos of beautiful Villa Nurbs which is a private property built in Emporia Brava in Spain.This little architecture wonder was designed by Enrico Ruiz Geli, Frederic Amat and Toni Kumelloy.The whole building is built for only one family which tells us enough about the luxury style of its owners.While most of the world is trying to create houses and technologies to absorb sun’s rays and to convert them into an usable energy, the creators of this house obviously concluded that they are not interested about cheap and eco-friendly energy sources. They created this building from expensive ceramic tiles which are specially designed to reflect sun’s rays and all unhealthy radiation which comes with them. The whole house looks like a huge spaceship from sci-fi movies and, I have noticed that from te beginning, it is certainly not like any other house in that neighbor.Although the idea and design are really cool, I believe it is little too luxury and probably it is not so nice to build such big house for only one family but, obviously, when you have enough money, then you don’t mind about the savings on space and energy.

Amazing Images of Machu Picchu

Amazing Images of Machu Picchu

As one of the most intriguing destinations in the world, the Lost Inca City of Machu Picchu has been visited by sightseers, backpackers, and those seeking the serenity of what is considered sacred land. Travelphant Travel Blog recently put together a guide to the newest great world wonder, accompanied by some amazing photographs that are just too good not to share.

Built in the classical Inca style, Machu Picchu’s mysterious ruins are made up of polished dry-stone walls. Separated into three areas – agricultural, urban, and religious – the structures are arranged so that the function of the buildings matches the form of their lush surroundings. The agricultural terracing and aqueducts take advantage of the natural slopes; the lower areas contain buildings occupied by farmers and teachers, and the most important religious areas are located at the crest of the hill, overlooking the lush Urubamba Valley thousands of feet below.Its primary buildings are the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun, and the Room of the Three Windows.

2010 Ford Flex Titanium

2010 Ford Flex Titanium news, pictures, and information
FORD FLEX ADDS A STYLISH NEW TITANIUM MODEL TO LINEUP

•Ford Flex adds a new top-end model to the lineup, the Flex Titanium
•Flex Titanium delivers additional style and attitude to the Flex range and reflects the target customer's love for personalization
•Flex Titanium delivers content for customers looking for an even more luxurious ride, and reflects customer feedback on features that really matter

DEARBORN, Mich., May 20, 2010 – The Ford Flex has been turning heads for almost two years now. And in that time, one thing has remained constant – the customer's love for the style and personality the Flex brings to the driveway. With that in mind, Ford announces the latest addition to the Flex lineup, Flex Titanium – a highly contented vehicle with individual style that will stand out in the world of more traditional crossovers and sport utility vehicles.

The new Flex Titanium features many new styling cues that will appeal to customers looking for a more personalized Flex experience. As Flex Marketing Manager Kate Pearce explains:

'As we look at the reasons people have been buying Flex, there are some very consistent themes running through the research and the main one is style. Flex customers are attracted to the vehicle as one that reflects their personality and allows them to stand out from the crowd. With the Flex Titanium, we are responding to our customers with a vehicle that reflects the unique positioning of Flex in the marketplace.'

Flex Titanium is based off the Limited series but with significant exterior and interior detailing as well as new features. Titanium will feature four exterior color choices: Red Candy, White Platinum, Tuxedo Black and Ingot Silver. All are mated to a new Tuxedo Black two-tone roof as well as blackout treatment for headlamps and taillamps. The unique black chrome finish grille with 'Flex' badging on the leading edge of the hood is a cue that comes directly from some of the SEMA Flex models shown at the 2008 and 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association shows in Las Vegas.

Continuing the theme, the beltline moldings, fog lamp bezels and side-view mirror skull caps are blackened while the liftgate appliqué is now black chrome. To finish off the exterior look, the 20-inch 10-spoke wheels are polished aluminum.

Inside, Flex Titanium continues to impress, with charcoal black leather-trimmed seats with gray Alcantara suede inserts, circle check appliqués on instrument panel and doors, painted alloy metallic finish on center stack and door panels, a perforated leather steering wheel and illuminated scuff plates.

Along with the visual changes, there are a number of feature add-ons, including HD Radio® and one-touch PowerFold® and tumble third row options.

These additional features are a reflection of the early sales mix success Flex has had, with nearly 40 percent of all sales coming with the Limited series and many additional features such as the Vista roof and refrigerator being specified in as many as 60 percent of all eligible vehicles.

The new Ford Flex is the first nameplate to feature the Titanium series in North America. This nameplate strategy has been very successful in Europe, where most vehicle lines feature Titanium as the top-of-the-range model. For example, the seven-seat S-MAX Titanium makes up around 70 percent of the product mix, while the popular Mondeo sells around 55 percent Titanium. The next-generation Ford Focus will also feature Titanium branding in all markets including North America when it arrives in dealer showrooms in early 2011.
