Do you need to repair your gut?

A possible explanation of your ongoing symptoms is that you actually have some work to do on your gut. Many times, clients complain that there is a long list of ingredients that bother them or that have come back on a food sensitivity test. When this is the case, it’s unlikely that every single food is truly a sensitivity; rather, it’s more likely that the gut is leaky and damaged and so is reacting to lots of different foods. 

Food Sensitivity Testing includes 95 common foods.

Green Salad with Dijon Red-wine Dressing

1 Tbs. red-wine vinegar
3/4 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
3 Tbs. water
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 head red or green romaine (3/4 to 1 lb.), trimmed, washed, dried, and torn into bite-size pieces (about 5 cups)

Leaves from 1 head celery
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (green or purple), torn into small pieces
1/2 cup fresh chervil sprigs

Combine the vinegar with the mustard and garlic in a small bowl and whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Just before serving, toss the romaine, mâche, oak leaf lettuce, mizuna or spinach, celery leaves, and herbs in a large bowl with just enough of the dressing to lightly coat them (you may not need it all). Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

This is "free" so have a large serving with lunch and dinner!

Kino Wellness serves up Eggplant Rolls

Eggplant Rolls

Wash and cook the quinoa as per packet instructions, using water or stock. Drain and set aside.

Mix toasted cumin and salt in a bowl.

Trim the eggplant and slice lengthways into 4mm thick slices. Spray the slices generously with Pam and sprinkle with cumin and salt mixture.

Place a griddle pan or large frying pan over a medium heat and add spray PAM. Once hot, fry the eggplant slices for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side until soft and colored.

Once all the eggplant slices are cooked, set aside on kitchen towel to drain

For the paneer and quinoa filling, place a non-stick pan over a medium heat and add PAM. Once hot, add the onion and sauté until a light golden brown colour

Add the ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, salt and chilli powder and sauté for a further 2 minutes

Add the cooked quinoa and cook for a further 5-7 minutes, then add the grated paneer and remove from the heat. Finish with garam masala powder and chopped coriander

Pan-seared Mahimahi with garlic, lemon and thyme

Pan-seared Mahimahi with garlic, lemon and thyme

I’ve been wanting to use lemon zest in a recipe for awhile now and finally got my chance! The zest, coupled with the garlic and thyme gave this mahi mahi a mouth-watering flavor. There really is nothing like a flavorful piece of seared fish! Here’s what you’ll need:

3-4 mahi mahi fillets (3oz. each)
1/2 tbspn lemon zest (from 1-2 lemons)
1/2 tbspn fresh thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 medium sized onion
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
PAM

 

PREP:

1. Zesting a lemon is actually a lot about the tools you have in your kitchen. My cheese grater is a square with different sized grates on each side, so I just used the smallest grate to zest my lemon. To zest, simply rub your lemon against the grater, careful to turn the lemon as you grate through just the yellow rind.

2. Once you have your lemon zest, combine with salt and pepper in a bowl.

3. Add thyme to the zest/salt/pepper mix. When adding the thyme you want the leaves, not the stems. To get the leaves, pinch the stems and run your pinched fingers all the way down the length of the stem to remove thyme leaves. Discard the stems & add the leaves to the mix.

4. Pat dry your fish with a paper towel. Coat the fish with the spice mix. Set aside on a plate.

COOK:

1. Heat a pan on medium/high heat. Add spray PAM.

2. Once pan is searing hot (you can test with a small piece of fish), add onions.

3. Once your onions are a golden brown, add your fish to sear. Be sure not to move the fish once you set it down in the pan. Let the fish sear for 3-4minutes (depending on thickness).

4. Turn your fish over using a spatula. Let the fish sear for another 3-4minutes (depending on thickness).

5. Allow fish to completely sear on the other side, then lower heat and cover your pan so that the fish can cook all the way through. Add your garlic. Let fish cook for another 3-4minutes (depending on thickness).

6. Once fish is cooked through, remove from heat and serve.

This was great when paired with some roasted zucchini/squash and whole wheat couscous.

Cinco De Mayo made skinny with kino Wellness
Cinco de Mayo Made Skinny
Salsa
This recipe is so simple you’ll have difficulty believing it is just as good, if not better, than the real deal. Tomatoes, onions and jalapeno peppers are mixed with lemon juice, sea salt and cilantro. Enjoy
Quesadillas 
Not only are these quesadillas healthy, but they are so delicious. Whether chicken or beef and everyone’s favorite super food, kale, along with the main ingredients. Oregano, chili powder and cumin for all the flavor. 
Margarita chicken skewers
If you’re having a Cinco de Mayo celebration, these chicken skewers are going to be a real crowd pleaser. The chicken is marinated in a blend of margarita mix, tequila and cilantro. Grill the chicken to really get the flavors out or, if you prefer, bake them. Either way, they are going to be Cinco de Mayo delicious. (the sweetness and calories are low once cooked)

Chicken and Veggie Ravioli

Chicken and Veggie Ravioli

2-3 medium to large yellow squash
1.5 lbs. ground chicken
1 8 oz. bag frozen spinach, thawed( or fresh)
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
small handful fresh basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste

1. Cut ends of squash off and slice down the middle so you have two halves. Using the narrowest setting on your mandolin, slice the squash into long, flat strips. ( potato peeler will work)
2. In a large pan, small spray of PAM, heat onion and a pinch of salt and saute for about 5 minutes, until nearly translucent. Add garlic and saute until fragrant.
3. Add ground chicken to onion and garlic and saute until chicken is cooked all the way through.
4. Squeeze all the excess water out of the spinach, then ad chicken, spinach, salt, pepper, and mascarpone to a food processor or blender and puree until mixture reaches desired consistency (I like it relatively smooth).
5. Assemble the ravioli by just barely overlapping two strips of squash (pictured above). Do the same over the middle of the first two strips, but perpendicular, creating a cross or "t" shape. 
6. Spoon filling in the center of the cross, then bring the ends of the strips together, overlapping each other. If that doesn't make sense, just see the picture above.
7. Secure with a toothpick.
8. Before serving, steam raviolis for about 4 minutes, or until squash is tender and inside is warm. ( or bake in oven at 400 )

Kino Wellness would love to help you get healthy in 2015!

The Global Weight Loss Program is a safe, effective Doctor formulated & Doctor supervised method that can help you lose 10 - 40 lbs. in 40 days.

 

 

 

THE SCARY TRUTH:

Over the next few decades, Life Expectancy for the average American could decline by as much as 5 years unless aggressive efforts are made to slow rising rates of obesity.  In 2000, Obesity caused 400,000 U.S. deaths – That’s approx. 16% of all deaths nationwide!  That compares with 435,000 for tobacco, or 18%, as thetop underlying killer. Obesity is a very scary 2nd place winner.

 

It’s truly an American Epidemic and has proven to be a precursor to disease.  It seems we’ve been talking about this for years and unfortunately it’s getting worse, not better.

 

Here’s a look at some of the statistics, and they’re really not pretty…
  • 75% of Americans are Overweight.
  • 50% will be “Obese” by 2025.
  • 57 Million people are Pre-Diabetic due to weight related issues
  • $117 Billion spent on health related Obesity Problems
OVERWEIGHT people are 2X as likely to DIE early and OBESITY is linked to the TOP 3 Causes of DEATH and many other health problems:
  • Heart Disease and Stroke
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Gallbladder Dx /Gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Breathing Problems
  • Back Pain

Results reported:

 " Client 141 has lost 23.8 lbs. in 18 days " - Kino Wellness is thrilled to hear it! " 

 " At my check in today at the office I have lost 26 lbs in 34 days! Can't believe how many inches came off so far! "

 " 30 lbs in 6 weeks! I feel great. I was at a conference this week ad numerous people noticed I lost weight! I also have 5 new outfits in my closet that fit again! Thanks Kino and Sandy "

Foods you eat can play a role in increasing or decreasing body pH
Foods you eat can play a role in increasing or decreasing body pH, and some foods can be more alkalizing than others. An acidic body is a magnet for sickness, disease, cancer, and aging. Eating more alkaline foods helps shift your body’s pH and oxygenates your system, keeping your body healthy and functioning correctly, preventing cancer, among many other diseases.

Kale Salad with Chicken, Roasted Veggies & Orange Sesame Vinaigrette
Kale Salad with Chicken, Roasted Veggies & Orange Sesame Vinaigrette

For the Orange Sesame Vinaigrette you’ll need:

1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice 
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar 
3 Tbs Tamari Soy sauce
2 packets or more stevia 
1 Tbs ground flax seeds ( not if on program )
5 Tbs toasted sesame oil ( omit if on program )
1/4 cup of diced chives (optional but adds great taste)
Place all ingredients in a mason jar with lid and shake vigorously. Adjust flavors to taste. Tamari will make it saltier, stevia will make it sweeter.

Let sit for an hour in the fridge or overnight. The ground flax will naturally thicken the dressing so it is not so watery.

For the chicken: 

4 organic chicken breasts
1/4 cup Orange sesame Vinaigrette from above
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin powder
Place chicken breasts in a glass baking dish. Pour dressing over breasts then sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, and sea salt. For best flavor, let sit in the fridge overnight to marinate. If you don’t have time, don’t worry.

Bake chicken at 425 for about 20mins or until cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool then cut into slices.

For the kale salad: 

2 heads of kale, stems removed and torn into small pieces
Toss kale with dressing until fully coated. Then top with roasted veggies of choice.

I roasted the veggies in this dish using the same method as the brussels sprouts in this recipe and added fennel, rainbow colored carrots, broccoli, and brussels sprouts. Any veggies will do, even steamed frozen veggies will work in a pinch!

Next top your kale & roasted veggies with sliced chicken and another small drizzle of the orange sesame dressing.

1 large bunch kale, any kind, cut into thin ribbons
zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic, smashed and minced
sea salt to taste
Spray PAM
1 shallot, peeled and sliced
4 crisp apples, cored and cut into 1/2 inch slices

Do You Know What’s Really In Your Tea?
Tea is something I drink every single day. It’s sacred at my house – I even have a whole drawer devoted to it! I drink it because it is amazing for your health. There are so many varieties of tea that can improve digestion, metabolism and even prevent certain diseases. This investigation into tea ingredients has been in the making for a long time. What I’m about to share with you totally rocked my world forever and I’ll never look at tea in the same way again. Do you really want to know what’s in your tea?…Then read on.
The ancient Chinese tradition of drinking tea dates back thousand of years to the early Chinese dynasties and aristocrats who drank the beverage for its medicinal properties. In ancient times, leaves from the Camellia Sinensis (the tea plant) were either ground into a powder or placed as loose leaves directly into water to infuse it with herbal essence. Unfortunately, modern day tea is nothing like the unadulterated version of old tea. Many of today’s tea brands are operating under the guise of providing health benefits and promoting clean living, but are actually laden with pesticides, toxins, artificial ingredients, added flavors and GMOs.
Conventional Teas – An Abundance of Pesticides
Did you know that most tea is not washed before it is put it into bags? That means if the tea was sprayed with cancer-causing pesticides, those pesticides go directly into your cup. And this is the reason why tea is on my organic shopping priority list. To prove this point, here are some shocking facts about one of the most well-known tea brands – Celestial Seasonings.
A recent third-party analysis by Glaucus Research and discussed here found that 91 percent of Celestial Seasonings tea tested had pesticide residues exceeding the U.S. limits. For example, Sleepytime Kids Goodnight Grape Herbal contained 0.26 ppm of propachlor, which is a known carcinogen under California’s Propsition 65.
The “Wellness” tea line was found to contain traces of propargite, also a known carcinogen and developmental toxin. The FDA has already issued two warning letters to Celestial Seasonings in regard to poor quality control according to this source. Imagine what happens when pesticide-laden tea is steeped in boiling water.
If grocery store brands don’t provide a clean option for you, perhaps a high-end loose leaf tea would circumvent some of the issues of grocery store brands. Right? Wrong! Take Teavana, which is found in malls across North America for example. Teavana taps into tea culture with the “Teavana Experience.” Convincing their employees to take customers on a sensory journey – they open a huge canister of loose leaf tea and wave the top of the canister so you can smell the tea – touting all of the wonderful health benefits of tea complete with samples and manipulative demonstrations that end in an expensive visit to the tea shop. Is all the extra money worth it? Are customers getting a superior tea product? No.
Teavana tea was tested by an independent lab and 100 percent of it was found to contain pesticides. One tea in particular, Monkey Picked Oolong, contained 23 pesticides. 77 percent of the teas would fail European Union pesticide import standards, and would be banned from import. 62 percent of the teas tested contained traces of endosulfan, a pesticide that has been banned by the U.S., China, the E.U., and 144 other countries because it has been linked to impaired fertility and could harm unborn babies.
UPDATE (May 27, 2014): Glaucus Research funded the research done by Eurofins Scientific (an independent lab) and admits on their disclaimer that they are biased because they would make money if Hain’s stock declines. However – I am not sure that Eurofins’ research should be completely discounted on this point alone. Since I wrote this post, Celestial has been sued in a class-action lawsuit based on the pesticides that Eurofins found in their teas and for mislabeling of them as “100% Natural”.  The jury is still out on whether Eurofins’ research will be considered legit, as this case is still active in California.  The Plaintiffs contend that Celestial’s teas contain “pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, carcinogens, and/or developmental toxins (collectively, “Contaminants”)” and Celestial “did not dispute – and has never disputed – that the tea Products contained Contaminants. Nor has (Celestial) challenged the results of the Eurofins Tests” and “has not claimed that Eurofins was biased or that the Eurofins Tests were not, in fact, accurate”.   Even if it is determined that Eurofins’ research was not accurate – it’s important to note that Celestial’s tea that was tested is NOT organic and some of this tea is sourced from China.  Greenpeace issued a report on the alarming amount of pesticides found on tea from China, followed up by a detailed report on Lipton brand tea from China – in which they recommend only purchasing certified organic tea to avoid these pesticides. Reference law documents: Complaint; Plaintiff’s Memo in Opposition to Motion to Dismiss. Case 8:13-cv-01757-AG-AN
 
Teas Can Contain Artificial Flavoring, Natural Flavors, and Hidden GMOs
Furthermore, a majority of Teavana teas contain added flavor – specifically “artificial flavoring.” If their tea is so high end, why would they be adding ingredients produced by fractional distillation and chemical manipulation of various chemicals like crude oil or coal tar? Coal tar in my tea? No, thanks.
PopularTeaBrandIngredients
Many popular tea brands get away with using the ingredient “natural flavors” to trick the consumer into thinking they are buying better, cleaner ingredients; however companies are just covering up the inferior taste and low quality of their tea. Fortunately, there are brands that are putting the kibash on the use of natural flavors and using all real ingredients. I was happy to learn that Ahmed Rahim, CEO of Numi Tea is just as disgusted by this ingredient as I am. He said to me “You can breakdown anything that is found in nature and if it ends up tasting like the flavor you wish to use – you can add it to any product and call it NATURAL FLAVOR on the ingredient label. It could come from a stone in the ground and you’d never know.” This is why when I see the words “natural flavor” listed on a label – I put the product down and run far far away. I want to know what I am eating! Don’t you?
Additionally, the added risk of consuming possible GMOs is not something many people think about when consuming teas. Before this investigation and witnessing tea companies using modified corn starch and soy lecithin in tea (additives likely made from genetically engineered corn and soy), I didn’t think about it either! I can’t imagine having a serious soy allergy, considering all the places companies try to hide it.
TjsTea
Why The Tea Bag & Packaging Matters
A recent article in The Atlantic discusses the “silky sachet” and “luxurious mesh bags” that hold loose leaf teas (like in brands Tea Forte and Mighty Leaf). Turns out, these modern day bags meant to showcase the tea leaves, are made of plastic.
PLA (polylactic acid) is a (likely GMO) corn-based tea bag material that has attracted major tea companies due to its nice look and its claims of biodegradability. Terms like “silky sachets” and “corn-based biodegradable tea bags” mislead customers into believing a product is more natural and sustainable than it really is. While the processing for PLA removes all traces of genetic material, it is still made with genetically modified corn. Although the actual tea bag is not an ingredient like teas and herbs, it is an element that is put into boiling water.
According to The Atlantic, tea bags are most commonly made from food grade nylon or polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which are two of what’s considered the safest plastics on the scale of harmful leaching potential. However, Dr. Mercola disagrees, he states:
“While these plastics are generally considered among the safest in terms of leaching potential, the molecules in these plastic tea bags may still in fact break down and leach out when steeped in boiling water…” Well, isn’t that how tea is prepared?
Another temperature consumers need to worry about in tea is the “glass transition” temperature. Here’s the science behind the glass transition temperature or, Tg, and why it becomes dangerous according to The Atlantic:
“That is the temperature at which the molecule in certain materials such as polymers begin to break down. As a rule, the Tg of a material is always lower than the melting point. In the case of PET and food grade nylon (either nylon 6 or nylon 6-6), all have a Tg lower than the temperature of boiling water. For example, while the melting point of PET is 482 degrees Fahrenheit, the Tg is about 169 degrees. Both nylons have a lower glass transition temperature than PET. (Remember that water boils at 212 degrees.) This means the molecules that make up these plastic tea bags begin to break down in hot water.”
 
So, while the plastic itself won’t melt in your tea, the glass transition temperature could potentially leak out harmful phthalates if there are such things in your tea. Another thing to worry about is that some of the newer tea bags are made with a variety of plastics. Some plastics are nylon, some are made of viscose rayon, and others are made of thermoplastic, PVC or polypropylene.
Beware of paper tea bags too, which can be worse than plastic tea bags.
GET THIS: Also according to Dr. Mercola, many “paper tea bags are treated with epichlorohydrin, a compound mainly used in the production of epoxy resins. Considered a potential carcinogen by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health2 (NIOSH), epichlorohydrin is also used as a pesticide. When epichlorohydrin comes in contact with water, it hydrolyzes to 3-MCPD, which has been shown to cause cancer in animals. It has also been implicated in infertility (it has a spermatoxic effect in male rats) and suppressed immune function.”
So what do you do the next time you want a cup of tea? Antioxidant rich teas aren’t going to do much to counterbalance the chemicals, additives and artificial flavorings in today’s modern teas.
First, I recommend looking at this chart below to see how your favorite tea brand stacks up:
Tea Comparison Updated 7 2014
And then when brewing and picking out the safest tea remember these tips:
1. Choose an organic & non-GMO certified brand of tea. (My favorites are Numi, Traditional Medicinals, and Rishi Tea (loose leaf)).
2. Check the ingredient list on the back of the tea package to make sure there are no added flavors, GMO ingredients like soy lecithin and corn starch added to the tea leaves.
3. Make sure the brand you buy uses a safe form of packaging material or buy loose leaf tea and use a stainless steel or glass tea strainer. Have the company verify that bags do not contain epichlorophydrin, and avoid plastic tea bags all together. (Numi and Traditional Medicinals are some of the only brands I trust in this category because they have publicly stated they do not use this harmful ingredient or GMO packaging and are Non-GMO Project verified.)
4. The majority of restaurants use some of the most pesticide ridden tea and brands that have harmful packaging like Celestial Seasonings, Lipton, Bigelow, etc. Don’t fall victim to this. Bring your own tea when eating out or going to restaurants and ask for pot or cup of boiling water (remember to leave a good tip if you do this). I even do this at Starbucks because I like to vote with my dollars and not buy tea brands that are harmful. If you drink iced tea, brew your own at home and carry an insulated water bottle with you.
5. Remember these temps and times for brewing the perfect cup of tea

You won't believe what's in your Yogurt!
While all of these practices and controversial additives have completely ruined yogurt, what I found most disturbing in the report are the eye-opening claims about what might be in yogurt that isn’t as obvious – and may not even be on the label. Cornucopia was shocked by their own findings and filed a formal complaint with the FDA, asking them to investigate some yogurts on the market because they don’t appear to even meet the legal definition of yogurt!

Surprising Things That Can Be In Yogurt:

HFCS-90 - This variation of high fructose corn syrup contains way more fructose than regular high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). When HFCS-90 is used, the ingredient label won’t indicate that high fructose corn syrup is an ingredient, rather it can be deceptively listed as simply “fructose” or “fructose syrup” without any reference to corn syrup. Regular HFCS contains up to 55% fructose, whereas HFCS-90 has 90% fructose by weight. That’s 9 times more fructose than the average fruit! An overload of fructose in the diet isn’t healthy because diets that are high in fructose are associated with obesity and cardiovascular disease. HFCS-90 is derived from corn starch, which is likely GMO. It’s totally misleading when companies say that fructose is natural and comes from fruit, when it’s a processed additive typically derived from GMO corn. 
Neosugar – This is a highly processed form of sugar made by hydrolyzing liquid GMO sugar beets or sugar cane. It’s so heavily processed that your body can’t digest it and it just passes through you like a fiber. It’s also marketed as a prebiotic, but there isn’t much evidence out there that neosugar is more beneficial than real food and it appears to just be a marketing ploy. Natural prebiotics are found naturally in raw fruits and vegetables. According to Dr. Michael Blaut, “It is questionable whether a wholesome diet rich in fruit and vegetables needs to be supplemented with prebiotics for optimal health effects”. Some names used by industry for neosugar are “Nutraflora” and “Fructan”, which is how you may see it listed on the ingredient label. Beware that neosugar is allowed in organic yogurt. Thankfully, the only organic company that is currently known to use neosugar is Horizon, so it’s pretty easy to avoid. 
Dimethylpolysiloxane - You’ve heard me refer to this chemical in the past as the silly putty ingredient that’s widely used as a defoamer in oil fryers at restaurants, and famously used in McDonalds french fries and soda fountains. Turns out that it can also be used during the processing of yogurt - and it’s not labeled, even if residues remain in the final product. One of the biggest issues I’ve got with dimethylpolysiloxane is that the FDA allows it to be preserved with formaldehyde, one of the most highly toxic substances on earth. As Cornucopia highlights in their report, most of the safety studies that have been done on dimethylpolysiloxane were conducted or paid for by the chemical companies, and not enough independent research has been done. Every yogurt company I called – Dannon, Chobani, Zoi, Greek Gods - emphatically denied that they use any anti-foaming chemicals, except for one. Yoplait (General Mills) told us it was proprietary information and “We’re sorry, but we don’t share processing information”
Nanoparticles – There’s a big controversy surrounding the results of a 2012 study that found titanium dioxide in Dannon yogurt. In May, Mother Jones reported that Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt contained the nanoparticle titanium dioxide, but have since retracted this from their article following Dannon’s claims that, “We don’t use any ingredients in Dannon plain yogurt that contain titanium dioxide. In the event we use an added color in our products we label it as an added ingredient”. I also contacted Dannon, and they confirmed this information. However, microscopic particles of titanium dioxide (nanoparticles) can be used as an artificial color to make white foods whiter and brighter. According to Friends of the Earth, there’s been “a tenfold increase in unregulated, unlabeled “nanofood” products on the American market since 2008… made by major companies including Kraft, General Mills, Hershey, Nestle, Mars, Unilever, Smucker’s and Albertsons. But due to a lack of labeling and disclosure, a far greater number of food products with undisclosed nanomaterials are likely currently on the market”. This concerns me because nanoparticles have been shown to carry risks to human health and the environment, and nanoparticles of titanium dioxide are specifically linked to gastrointestinal inflammation
Synthetic PesticidesYogurts that contain fruit likely contain synthetic pesticide residues unless they are organic. Berries are the most popular fruits found in yogurts, and they’re also on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen List of the most contaminated produce. The pectin that is added to some yogurts may also contain another dose of pesticides, as it’s made from conventional fruit. The National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the President’s Cancer Panel all warn about the health dangers of consuming pesticides found on conventional produce.

4 Reasons to LOVE your body and keep it healthy!
4 Reasons to love your body and keep it healthy!
 
#1 Most Americans don’t think carrying extra pounds is a health risk. But the harsh reality is that being obese can lop as many as 20 years off your life.
Fortunately, losing even a small amount of weight can reduce and sometimes reverse the risks. 
 
#2 Studies have linked the risk of asthma with obesity. Researchers at National Jewish Health in Denver reported that glucocorticoids (meds that control wheezing) are 40 percent less effective in overweight patients than in those of normal weight.
Make one change: Increase your vitamin D intake—which can help improve lung function.
Did you know? Obesity is the No. 1 risk factor for sleep apnea. Extra body fat in the chest and neck can restrict air passages, causing you to wake up frequently to help catch your breath.
 
#3 Overweight women have four times the endometrial cancer risk, probably for the same reason they’re at increased risk for breast cancer: Body fat produces estrogen, a hormone linked to both diseases, says a recent study at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Likewise, University of Minnesota researchers found that leptin, a hormone associated with weight gain, enhanced the proliferation of both normal and cancerous breast cells.
 
#4 Swedish researchers have reported that being overweight triples the risk of chronic renal failure (CRF), a gradual, irreversible loss of kidney function. The researchers estimate that obesity causes 11 percent of CRF cases in women. Likewise, having a higher BMI increases the risk of gallbladder disease, according to researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California.
Make one change: To keep kidneys healthy, swap sodas for sparkling water flavored with lime or lemon.
 
Are you ready to make the final change to a healthy rest of your life?
