Is There Really Brain Food?

For those of you who missed it, here is the April 2nd news spot on San Diego Living, Channel 6

 (see the video here)

We’ve all had those days when we just feel like our brain is in a fog.  And while there’s no magic pill (or is there?) to bring us back to the height of our cognitive powers, there are some foods and nutrients that have been shown to improve brain function, protect against age-associated cognitive decline and encourage focus and clarity.  But before you dismiss the diet-brain connection let me tell you there has been study after study that has found a relationship between what we put in our mouths and how well we can perform important thinking and memory tasks. While certain nutrients may specifically assist brain function, there is also the totality of our diets to consider. Also, several well-regarded studies have shown that meal timing is an important predictor of performance.

For example, research shows that eating breakfast can improve the memory and acquisition skills of schoolchildren. In a finding sure to fuel the debate over the harms of saturated fat, researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital published a study last year suggesting that saturated fats — found in red meat and full-fat dairy products — causes the brain to age more rapidly than other kinds of fat. Olive oil, avocado, and other monounsaturated fats appear to slow brain aging.

I’ve put together the top brain foods — tell me Friday if any have made a difference for you. We all could use a little extra oomph up there?

·         Walnuts help promote blood flow, which in turn allows for efficient delivery of oxygen to the brain.

·         Olive oil is a great source of monounsaturated fat, which has been shown to actually slow brain aging.

·         Berries –  Neuro-research found that a diet high in blueberries, strawberries and others were linked to a slower mental decline in areas like memory and focus in a large sample of middle-aged women.

·         Fatty fish like sardines and salmon are a well-known brain booster, thanks to the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which have been linked to lower risk of dementia, improved focus and memory.

·         Spinach is rich in the antioxidant lutein, which is thought to help protect against cognitive decline, according to researchers from Tufts University.

·         Avocados are full of monounsaturated fats that improve vascular health and blood flow, making them another brain food.

·         Water – When a person becomes dehydrated, their brain tissue actually shrinks. And several studies have shown that dehydration can affect cognitive function.  Dehydration can impair short-term memory, focus and decision making.

·         Garlic may help stave off some forms of brain cancer, according to research published in Cancer, the medical journal of the American Cancer Society. Investigators found that the organo-sulfur compounds in garlic actually worked to kill brain cancer cells.

The key to successfully implementing these foods for effectiveness is in balancing them.  Remember, too much of a good thing is a bad thing.  At the Seminar Friday, we will talk about how to combine these foods and other herbs and botanicals for optimal brain function.

Over decades of study and working with thousands of clients, I’ve developed a single product that has a key all-natural combination affecting Mood. Metabolism and Recovery as it says on the bottle

It all starts on my birthday, this Friday, April 5th at a FREE seminar in San Diego where San Diego 6 viewers can get a chance to enter to receive all of this free.  All views have to do is register at www.trisystem.info/san-diego-6. That enters you in a drawing to be announced at the seminar.  More information about the location is on that page.  It starts at 6:30. I hope to see you there!

I NEED Your Prayers and Support

This has become very personal for me.  My dad, Robert Kotterman, just got diagnosed with a melanoma skin cancer on his abdomen and has a consultation with an oncologist this week.  The mole is about a centimeter big.  Tina, my wife just had to go back yesterday to get an ultra sound on her breast after a mammogram showed a 2 inch cyst in her breast.  She is still mourning the recent death of her mother from cancer.  She has a family history of breast cancer.  Her uncle had it!

I need your help in this Cancer Fight!

I'm not special.  Statistics show that cancer has touched everyone's family.  I know if you are reading this, you know several people who have had it.  You know people who have died from it.  A lot of people think that exercise and eating right is just for vanity.  They think of fitness as a luxury for those who have more time, money and energy.  It's not.  Of course I'm going to say that, I'm biased.  Yes, I have a continual urge to help people get fit, but it is not just so they can feel more sexy,  its much more than that!

  • My father-in-law died of throat cancer before I had a chance to meet him.
  • My mother-in-law recently died of lung cancer.
  • My mother has had basil cell cancers removed.
  • I had an aggressive, rare form of melanoma that needed surgery.
  • I've found melanoma on my clients while doing body fat testing.
  • Clients have had several surgeries, lost body parts and even died as a result of cancer.
  • In our church, we have lost close friends, young children, teenagers and parents to this disease

I have personally worked with clients with cancers of the;

  • skin
  • breast
  • prostate
  • liver
  • lung
  • stomach
  • blood
  • brain
  • muscle
  • bone

Research shows that cancer deaths are 80% preventable!

A Really Good Source for Vegan Recipes

As a sports nutritionist, the subject of vegetarianism is quite controversial.  Validated as an alternative therapy to treat forms of inflammation, heart disease and even cancer, various degrees of vegetarianism have been shown to be effective.  Viewed as extreme by some, especially those meat lovers, vegetarians have their place among environmentalists and alternative practitioners.

My question is:  Can someone maintain optimal performance or body composition on a vegan diet?  Is it possible to maintain or even increase skeletal muscle mass without animal protein in the diet?  As a practicing master sports nutritionist, I have found it to be challenging to write menus that stay within targeted macronutrient and calorie ranges without foods that are mostly protein.

None the less, in a back-to-the basics interview with one of my mentors, the grandfather of fitness, the late, great Jack LaLane, I was asked by Jack, "Do you eat the recommended 3-5 services of vegetables a day?"  I did not.  In the latest NASN Personal Training textbook it recommends replacing meat, including fish and chicken with fruits, veggies and whole grains as main dishes.  So even for fitness and performance, it is now becoming widely accepted that  the meat on your plate should be more like a side than the main dish.

So the question remains:  how do we get all these veggies in and make them delicious.  Steamed broccoli every night just does not sound like a good time.

Problem solved.  My good friend and colleague, Liz Eddy has created a great contemporary website of vegan recipes that gets updated regularly with new ideas from her juice to her desserts, I'm sure you'll find something you like, I know I did. 

Check it out: http://fitfoods.com

and whether your vegan or not, Eat your veggies!

Letter to a Smoker :(

Mary, I send this to you out of brotherly love!

My mother-in-law was just diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She has lived with us for close to fifteen years and now, she is on hospice in our home.  She has lost 25 pounds in recent months and can't stand on her own anymore.  She is in a lot of pain, has no appetite and struggles with going to the bathroom.
 
 
I'm begging you, from the bottom of my heart that you would do everything you could to prevent this from happening to you.
 
She is angry!  She is mad that this happened to her.  She has been smoking for more than 50 years.  When she started, no one knew what it lead to.  Now we know.  I'm experiencing it first hand, watching my wife's mother die a painful, miserable death.  She is starting to cough more.  She feels so weak.  I don't want anyone to experience this, especially those I love.  What can I do to prevent this from happening to you?
 
Well, I can plead with you to stop smoking.  Cold turkey is best but, will you at least cut down? 
 
We can start exercising again to help heal your lungs and push the tar and nicotine out. You could even do it on your own.  I can help you, and hold you accountable.
 
Take my new anti-oxidant.  Research shows that this combination of herbs is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants on the planet.  I can drop some by or mail it to you for free.  This is that important to me.
 
Eat your fruits and veggies.  Veggies, veggies, veggies. 
 
 
Mary:  too many people depend on you.  Too many people love you and need you in there lives.  Please take the "loaded gun" out of your mouth and let me help you.  I want to save you from this inevitably painful death.
 
With HIS love,
 
Jeff <><

The problem with a healthy lifestyle program is…

The problem with a healthy lifestyle program is that if you ask most people if they follow a healthy lifestyle, they would say YES! And they're not even close.

 

We are just fooling ourselves.  For the first time in history, if the statistics are not changed, this generation may outlive their children.  Did you comprehend that last sentence?  We may soon be burying our children from epidemic diseases like diabetes, obesity and heart disease.  We are already seeing it from cancer!  Visit a children's hospital.  Ask St. Jude's Cancer Center for Children.  You can stand by and let it happen, or you can do something about it right now!

  • Do the hard thing!  Get the right eating plan…and follow it!

  • Get on a progressive fitness plan that you will do most days…and do it!

  • Take high nutrient, low calorie anti-oxidants to help clean the free radicals out of our bodies!

 

Oh, yeah, that's the TriSystem Program.  It's been around for almost 20 years and it has radically changed the lives of those who are committed to change.  It keeps changing everyday.  If you've been on the program before, you better get an update because, things have… radically changed!

The Choice is yours: Heart Disease or Cancer:  Pick one!  or NOT.

Heart Disease or Cancer: Pick one! or NOT!

Let's forget about the economy or the election or gas prices for one minute.  Don't you realize that there is something much more important going on here? All these other things are distractions.  They may even be distracting you to the point of death.  Yes, death!  Sound extreme? Well it isn't.  Take a moment to receive this reality check.  Regardless of all the medical advancements, research, new medications and treatments, the American lifespan has decreased by as much as 5 years. (references for this article provided at the end).

Here are the facts:

  • heart disease is the leading cause of death in America

  • cancer is the second leading cause of death in America

  • cancer is the leading cause of death in American children, ages 1-14

 

 

Get ready!  If you haven't mourned the premature lose of a friend or family member, the odds are, you will in the near future.  I've dealt with cancer myself in 1998.  Between my family, my clients and my church, I deal with several people a day fighting the battle against these two leading killers.  It's simply overwhelming.  The damage these diseases are causing is widespread.  A solution to these health problems would have such an economic, social and even spiritual impact, it would change the world. 

What would the world be like with no Heart Disease or Cancer?

We already spend millions and millions of dollars in treatment and research for the cure.  What can we do more?  What if it was already out there?  Well It is!  Yes, I said… it is.  No this is not some magic pill.  No it's not from a late night infomercial or multi-level–marketing company.  This is REAL!

The Facts:

  • 80% of all heart disease deaths can be prevented through this method!

  • 80% of all cancer deaths can be prevented through this method!

That's right.  Most of the deaths in American can be prevented if we just implement this method today.  The problem with the method is that it is difficult to do and, even if you implement this protocol, there are still 20% who will still get these diseases.  So what if you or a member of your family are part of that 20%?  Is it still worth trying something difficult to do in order to prevent suffering and premature death?  You tell me!  I'd hate to be one of those people with regrets.  What's worse than dying from a degenerative disease is facing the fact that you may have prevented it.  That is much harder than doing what it takes to keep these diseases away.

The answer…

The method…

The protocol…

Is radically changing the way you eat.  It is committing to vigorous exercise most days a week.  It is being conscious of your environment and what you expose yourself to.  It is paying attention to the water you drink, the air you breath and the sleep you get.  It is being conscious of what you expose your body to, inside and out.   The main problem with this solution is that it is summed up in an easy answer called a healthy lifestyle program.

The problem with a healthy lifestyle program is that if you ask most people if they follow a healthy lifestyle, they would say YES! And they're not even close.

We are just fooling ourselves.  For the first time in history, if the statistics are not changed, this generation may outlive their children.  Did you comprehend that last sentence?  We may soon be burying our children from epidemic diseases like diabetes, obesity and heart disease.  We are already seeing it from cancer!  Visit a children's hospital.  Ask St. Jude's Cancer Center for Children.  You can stand by and let it happen, or you can do something about it right now!
