  1. Think plant-based meals: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans) and nuts / seeds.
  2. Instead of adding salt to your favorite meals, substitute herbs and spices to give your meals punch without the sodium content.
  3. Eat no more than 1-2 servings of red meat per month, and eat at least two servings of poultry and fish (preferably wild, not farmed) a week.
  4. Replace butter with "good" oils (olive, canola, etc.), which are high in monounsaturated fat, helping clear cholesterol from the body.
  5. Limit dairy intake and choose low-fat / fat-free options when it comes to milk, cheese and yogurt. That way, you can enjoy some of the health benefits of dairy (calcium, protein, healthy bacteria) without the high fat / cholesterol.

Blue Jays win MLB charity award

The Toronto Blue Jays have won an award for their grassroots charitable work to promote amateur baseball across the country.

The organization was recognized Thursday with Major League Baseball’s Commissioner’s Award for Philanthropic Excellence, handed out annually since 2010.

The Jays won the award for a series of youth programs provided across Canada and collectively known as the “Blue Jays Baseball Academy.”

Programming includes baseball leagues in low-income neighbourhoods, the refurbishment of baseball fields and recreational centres, and instructional clinics for kids.

Team president and CEO Paul Beeston said the organization, as Canada’s only major-league team, made a decision several years ago to reach out to communities beyond Toronto.

“The support we have received from all provinces has been overwhelming and it was imperative that our programs reflected that passion,” he said.

Beeston also thanked the charity’s partners: Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, Baseball Canada, Little League Canada and Toronto Community Housing.

Starting out 2013 with a plan to get in the best shape you can is tough.  Regular exercise, healthy diet, decreased stress, and better sleeping habits are all important.  Over the holidays I read "WHEAT BELLY", and have changed my eating habits accordingly.  Here is another article I came across that explains the benefits of ALA, or alpha lipoic acid.

Shed Belly Fat With Alpha Lipoic Acid
ALA is a potent antioxidant capable of enhancing the activity of other antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione and coenzyme Q10. ALA is known to assist with diabetes, blood sugar control and cellular energy. Often referred to as R+ lipoic acid, ALA plays a key role in the processing of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It also influences the balancing of blood sugar levels by enhancing glucose uptake. In type 2 diabetics, ALA has been shown to inhibit glycosylation (the abnormal attachment of sugar to protein) and has been used to improve diabetic nerve damage. Basically, ALA acts as a coenzyme, or partner, in the production of energy by converting carbohydrates into energy. A study published in Hypertension (2002) investigated the effects of ALA on insulin resistance, hypertension and free radical stress. Researchers found that ALA reduced blood pressure and prevented insulin resistance in rats who were fed sugar water by preventing an increase in oxidative stress (which is typical after a high-sugar or-carb meal). As an extra bonus ALA has been shown to improve energy metabolism and decrease oxidative stress associated with aging. I recommend taking one sachet of the Metabolic Repair Pack twice daily for optimal results.
