First Step to Healthy Cats: Eliminate all Grains from their Daily Diet
Most likely, your cat is unhealthy because you are feeding him food with grain as an ingredient. Are your veterinarian bills mounting up because your cat has one health problem after another? Are you using those “wipes” on your cat every week because its coat gets a little oily and smelly?
Check the ingredients list on the food. Even if you are buying premium cat food from a well know producer of pet food, chances are you will find some form of grain listed close to the top of the list. That means a large percentage of the food inside consists of grain. And that creates problems for kitty.
Cats Digestive Systems are not Designed to Process Grain
One of the first facts Wikipedia lists about cats is that it is an obligate carnivore. By definition, an obligate carnivore is “an animal that by its genetic makeup must eat the tissue of other animals in order to thrive. Obligate carnivores may eat other foods, such as vegetables, grains, or fruit, but they must eat meat as the main source of their nutrients.” That last sentence referencing other foods is probably true for your dog, but it is simply not true for cats.
For way too many years both your local veterinarian and your local pet food company have considered cats as a small sort of dog that doesn’t do tricks. And they operated on the seriously misguideded notion that what is good for a dog is also good for a cat.
Cats are unadulterated, pure and simple carnivores. They must eat only animal tissue to thrive. Their digestive system is totally set up to digest, assimilate and use protein, fat, organs and bone. And that means a cat’s gut and the associated digestive enzymes are not geared to handle anything but animal protein. Dropping grain into that system is like throwing a wrench into a spinning crankshaft.
Years ago, when I was in college with very little money, a friend gave me a kitten. At the time, beef heart was both cheap and easy to find in the market, so Francesca dined on raw beef heart, or raw chicken giblets. She thrived and flourished on that diet and never needed to visit the veterinarian from one year to the next.
Decades later, information began circulating about the inadvisability of feeding raw food to cats. I remembered Francesca, and wondered why she had been so healthy for so long even though she ate “the wrong food.” Nevertheless, when I adopted two young neutered tabbies from a shelters, I fed them a premium cat food that prided itself on provided a balanced diet of meat, grains and vegetables.
Happily, my new cats were only fed this stuff about two weeks when I discovered two books almost simultaneously that were serious discussions about cat nutrition. The first was by a veterinarian, the second by a woman who had years of practical experience with feline health. Both convinced me to stop feeding my own cats anything containing grain of any form. The results have been gratifying. The cats are frisky and vital, and now have beautiful clean fur that never gets oily or odorous.
If you care about your cats the way I know you do, you will immediately dump any remaining cat food with grain in it and replace it with a food that is all animal protein (if it has some vegetables or berries in the recipe, that is fine for now.) I know this is an expensive action to take. But think of it this way: replacing your cat food now is not as expensive as paying the insulin costs of a diabetic cat.

Sanjay Raja’s new book The Food Talk offers advice on how you can talk about food with your children and change their eating habits for the better. In the book, he makes the excellent point that talking about food with your children is just as important as talking to them about sex-food and sex are both very pleasurable but there is always risk involved. He also points out that if your children are able to say “macaroni and cheese” or “chicken tenders,” they’re able to say “carbohydrates” and “protein” and know what those words mean. We all want our children to eat better, more nutritious and healthier food. We just don’t know how to make that happen, and there are many culprits that try to sabotage us along the way.
Raja offers step-by-step instructions in this book for parents so they can do everything from beginning to have the food talk with their children to getting them to read food labels and to eliminate sugar from their diets. He is not delusional-yes, children are bound to eat sugar-but we can also teach them about the effects sugar has on the body and teach them to cultivate tastes for nutritious foods-even broccoli and cauliflower.
Raja also has advice for navigating around those culprits that would sabotage you and your kids-the birthday parties full of sugary cake and brownies, the grandparents who want to treat the grandkids, and the school lunch that offers cheese pizza and chicken tenders instead of green vegetables. Based on Raja’s advice, you’ll be able to create a plan for dealing with each of these situations and get your kids to learn how to make the right decisions for themselves.
You’ll also be surprised by many of the myths about food and children’s eating habits that Raja exposes and that we, too often, accept without second thought. For example, one myth or belief we may not give a second thought to is “Kids shouldn’t eat off the adult menu.” In response to this, Raja states: “What a crock. While the portions might be smaller, children shouldn’t be limited to what is routinely offered on kids’ menus: pasta with butter, grilled cheese sandwiches, fried chicken fingers, pizza, hot dogs, corn dogs, and fried foods in general.” None of these foods are really nutritious. Instead, kids should be taught to eat what adults are eating and to be adventurous in their food choices. Raja offers advice on how to make that sense of adventure prevalent.
As Raja explains, every meal is actually an opportunity to talk to your kids about food and the nutrients that the meal is offering to their bodies. Based on his own experience, Raja states, “Knowing more and more about the food they eat has become increasingly interesting to my twins. When we buy ginger, we talk about the fact that ginger is a spice that’s good for you because it helps reduce soreness in muscles. When a recipe calls for cinnamon, we remind one another that cinnamon helps keep the blood healthy by reducing sugar-and that, yes, sugar is bad. My kids understand that pod vegetables-like green beans and wax beans and snap peas-and fruit vegetables-like zucchini and eggplant and tomatoes-are low in calories and have fiber and other vitamins. They understand that seed vegetables-like lentils-are a little higher in calories because they contain carbohydrates, and are very high in fiber, iron, and magnesium. They also know the difference between a seed vegetable and a flower vegetable and what vitamins they’re individually packed with.”
You may be thinking: “What are these, miracle children? My kids would never do that,” but as Raja states, “There’s a fallacy in the American mindset that nutrition is a challenging and tough subject, best left to scientists with multiple degrees in biology and chemistry-certainly not a topic for children! Nothing could be further from the truth. These aren’t tough concepts. They are things your child needs to know in order to begin making informed decisions-and to start eating smartly with no excuse. No parent would be upset if his or her children started learning the ABCs or numbers before they even started school-they would have a head start! We expect our kids to learn the fundamentals of math and reading at an early age because everything they do is based on these concepts. Even more so with nutrition! It is literally the building block of your child’s body and mind. So there should be no hesitation about teaching our kids the basics of good nutrition and healthy eating.”
With each chapter of The Food Talk, I found myself agreeing more and more with Raja. Is talking about food with children really that difficult, or have we just never given enough thought to doing it? I think The Food Talk is the perfect book to get parents started on having these educational talks with their kids. I also suspect parents will realize they have to practice what they preach, meaning they’ll be eliminating some of their bad food choices and making better ones for themselves. If you read this book and start implementing its advice, soon you and your children will be happier, healthier, and able to pass up those candy bars in the checkout aisle. It’s not a dream that can’t come true. Make it happen by beginning with this book.
Type 2 Diabetes may very well be the least understood and most over-treated common disease in America. That was my “walk-away” conclusion after reading “Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual” by Daryl Wein.
Wein, who himself has Type 2 Diabetes, is a medical professional who began personal research on the disease after contracting it. The result is a very informative guide that has a lot of valuable information for patients and doctors alike. I don’t have Type 2 Diabetes but I learned a lot of valuable tips that will help in my weight loss efforts.
The treatment regimen Daryl has come up with, if followed, means for many Type 2 patients that they won’t have to take medication but can control the disease and live a normal lifestyle simply by eating healthy and living a healthier lifestyle.
Wein’s biggest advice is to avoid all starches. Starches, which convert to sugar in the body, is public enemy number one for diabetics. More than once in his book Wein hammers home the point – “The single most important thing to do to manage Type 2 Diabetes is to avoid eating carbohydrates.”
Of course, all of us should avoid sugary foods. Diabetics should avoid all breakfast cereal, all breads, rice, potatoes, corn, tortillas, and all chips and crackers. It doesn’t matter much, stresses Wein, whether the rice or bread is white or brown. Foods lowest in carbohydrates that can be used for healthy meals include eggs, meat, fish, cheeses, green salads, nuts and beans in moderation, some condiments, any sugar-free beverage, and even pork rinds!
The back of the book contains very extensive tables of many foods and how many grams of carbs enter the body for specific volume sizes – cups, ounces, pieces, tablespoons, packets, etc.
“Type 2 Diabetes: The Owner’s Manual” opened my eyes not only regarding diabetes but also to the real impact carbs of all kinds have on my body and my general health. Many readers can experience major improvements in their health simply by reading and understand, and then applying, the principles discussed in this book.
In Business Brilliant, journalist and entrepreneur Lewis Schiff reveals what keeps the majority of the middle class from becoming rich: their belief in conventional success myths. They lack what the self-made rich have, “Business Brilliance,” or an innate understanding of how money is made. Through a survey of self-made millionaires and middle-class workers, Schiff has identified and distilled the “Business Brilliant” mindset into seven synergistic principles. Business Brilliant provides an in-depth guide to each principle as well as a four-step program that allows people of all backgrounds to integrate the principles into their lives, further their careers, and accumulate wealth faster.
What sets self-made millionaires apart is not work ethic or innovative ideas, but their subscription to a unique set of priorities. Advancing a career and accumulating wealth faster requires an understanding of these priorities. Lewis Schiff recommends professionals consider the following concepts:
• Question conventional ideas about business and wealth. It is impossible to break out of the middle class by adhering to ubiquitous ideas of how to achieve financial success.
• Acquire a substantial ownership stake in one’s work. “Business Brilliant” people continuously angle for an ownership stake in their work. By chasing equity opportunities whenever possible, they are increasing their opportunities for wealth.
• Focus on increasing income rather than decreasing spending. The middle class tends to believe the misinformation of popular frugality gurus that achieving wealth is only possible by scrimping and saving. Business Brilliant people understand that the only way to get rich is to earn more.
• Do not innovate; instead execute an established idea well. Innovation comes with a lot of risk and consequently does not make good business sense. It is more profitable to imitate an existing idea and execute it better than it has been executed before.
• Build a strategic, tight-knit network of people. Bankrolling a venture alone is foolish. By developing a strategic social network, it becomes possible to fund business pursuits with other people’s money and supports.
• Negotiate using the “win-win or no deal” approach. To avoid being taken advantage of in a negotiation, it is necessary to inform the other negotiating party that it is a win-win deal or no deal at all. To achieve this requires writing down the negotiation goals beforehand, researching what the other bargaining party is likely to ask for, and determining the point at which one is willing to walk away from the deal altogether.
• Delegate responsibility to others. Business Brilliant people focus on their strengths and delegate the tasks that involve their weaknesses to others. This prevents them from wasting the energy they need to become extraordinary.
• Learn from failure. Failed endeavors offer a wellspring of lessons and opportunities for the future. Business Brilliant people accept that failure is an inevitable part of the road to success and learn from it whenever possible.
• Master Business Brilliance by integrating it into every aspect of professional life. Despite the fact that Business Brilliance is an innate quality many people are born with, it can be learned. This requires people to master the four areas of Business Brilliance: learning, earning, assistance, and persistence.

Patience, perseverance, and personality are just three of the tips you need to be fully equipped with if your wish to become successful in life.
And although it might not be too ideal to become too materialistic, there is still no denying the importance of money, and a fluid inflow of cash in our lives at that. If you wish to improve your cash flow enabling you to provide a comfortable life, then here are some of the things you need to take into consideration.
Estimation and Forecast
One of the best tricks to help improve your situation is to become smart when handling cash Thus, it is important to always estimate and forecast the cash that you have at the moment and the cash that you expect to get in the coming days. This way, you will get a relatively good idea on whether or not your savings and expenses are still within budget.
Terms for Businesses
If your cash flow woes have to do with your business earnings, then one of the things you need to take into consideration would have to be your business terms. You have to be able to gauge whether or not your customer terms are beneficial and if you find out that it’s not, immediately change it to something more workable.
Another great way of improving cash inflow would be to practice discipline especially when it comes to spending. You need to always allot a bigger percentage of your budget to savings rather than expenditure. Although some circumstances might be unavoidable, doing this consistently can help prepare you for what is to come.
Segmentation for Business
Managing your cash flow from a general perspective is a very tedious process. This is why it is best to practice segmentation and divide different groups into different categories, making it easier to track your ups and downs. Allot a segment for your buyers or customers, suppliers, and necessary inventory as deemed possible.
Set Your Priorities Straight
Another great way of improving your cash flow can be done through carefully setting your priorities. Make sure that if you own a business, no matter how huge or small it is, you prioritize a solid and consistently growing cash flow because when this becomes a culture in the business, everybody will realize its importance. After all, if your cash flow improves, your people will also benefit from it.
Now that you have some of the most important ways to help improve your financial position, whether this may be for business or for your personal gains, make sure to employ every single time and it will truly benefit you in more ways than one. In the beginning, doing these tips might be a little difficult because you’re fairly new but when you get the hang of it and start to incorporate it as part of your system, then there shouldn’t be any worries anymore.

Everybody in this universe wants to lead a healthy life. Most of us are not successful in achieving a normalized body health. Obesity is the main problem for many of us. It is not needed to waste time in gym sweating with the heavy objects. Simply boosting our levels of general daily activity can improve our health to a greater extent. Diet and fitness form a main part of our daily activity. When it comes to diet we have to be cautious about the type of food we intake and the extent of nutrition our body consumes. A proper proportion of the food intake and nutrients level are the causes for boosting our health.
When it comes to eating habits, all of us are designed to eat fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and animals. This is the ultimate secret (which is not really a secret) to optimal health, losing weight, staying lean, improved performance, reduced risk of injury and faster recovery and healing.
After many trials and errors, I finally discovered that it is always better and safe to go by nature. Honestly speaking, I am not a good cook. Once I purchased the Paleo cookbooks, I found the recipes and instructions to be very simple and I was able to cook tasty meals. I found that my diet was just about the opposite of what everybody ate. I even spent less time thinking about food and more time just enjoying a healthy and vibrant life. I was able to create many interesting recipes that helped me to stay away from sweets and fried foods. My BMI (Body Mass Index) reduced to a greater extent within a month. I realized that I was smart in making the right changes in my life to achieve great health.
The Paleo Cookbooks introduced many delicious recipes which is a diet designed by nature. These books have shown positive results to many of us like good weight loss results, increased energy levels, bright & soft skin and a strong immune system. Eating natural foods that make up the Paleo diet promote such wonderful results.
The main reason to follow this cookbook is that it is always safe to follow a Paleo diet. The Paleo Diet is based on what our prehistoric human ancestors consumed. During the paleolithic age, our ancestors used to eat the food from nature. They didn’t suffer from diabetes, obesity, heart diseases, cancer, auto-immune system and other chronic disorders. Their natural way of living made them healthy, fit and strong. It is interesting to know that the mortality rates were very low in places like Japan and Mediterranean compared to other places. This is because their dietary habits were paleolithic.
In this cookbook we don’t find processed foods, preservatives, vegetable oils, sodas, legumes and dairy products. Instead there are a lot of recipes for egg, fish, fruits, vegetables, shell fish, seafood and nuts. For our convenience they have included guide to cook a healthy diet, easy cooking time charts, a guide to cook fats and meat charts to help us understand the Paleo diet and keep us on the path to follow a healthier diet and enjoying improved health. It is not too late to change our habits and establish a healthy lifestyle. So don’t waste your time breaking your heads, making a hell lot of trial and errors in searching for a healthy recipe. My best suggestion for the recipe that fits your body in all ways is the Paleo cookbooks.
