Special training with Dr Heber at Heathrow Airport.

I have for today’s blog drawn directly from our super Dr David Heber, who has always been the greatest motivator of my thirst for knowledge in eating the correct foods.
I look forward to attending his trainings as the content is so clear and you leave with a full picture of the subject, so this can be passed on to empower people to change their lives and health forever, there is much of his wisdom on the web site http://www.giftofhealth.co.uk Dr Heber is my inspiration to carry the knowledge on to others..

“Diet Foods: Healthy Foods That Help You Lose Weight and Combat Aging”, red/purples, orange, orange/yellow, green/yellow, green and white green. Dr. David Heber, director of the UCLA Collaborative Centres for Integrative Medicine, Chairman of the Herbalife Medical advisory board, Voted the number 1 doctor by the worlds doctors, who on this subject wisely pointed out: “Each colour group represents a set of phytonutrients: special chemicals the plants make to protect themselves from pests,” Heber said. “There are 100,000 colourful substances or more in edible plant species including fruits and vegetables. Each of the chemicals has unique characteristics — it’s the mixture of a variety of different colours that make the diet healthy.”

The following is an excerpt of Dr. Heber’s “superhero foods” with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that not only prevent you from getting the deadly Buddha Belly, but they will also slow down, and in some cases reverse the aging process as well fighting of the free radicals that are constantly attacking our bodies, they are in the air, the food we eat, and are constantly looking for an opportunity to develop and make us sick.

Try to eat at least one piece of fruit and vegetable from the colour groups to give your body the tools to fight back.

RED: Lycopene is what gives tomatoes and watermelon its red hue, as well as its antioxidant properties. The substance has been linked to lowering stroke risk and preventing heart disease.

ORANGE: The beta-carotene found in sweet potatoes, squash, carrots and corn have antioxidant properties, protecting your body from cell damage wrecked by free radicals.

ORANGE-YELLOW: You can reduce inflammation in your body thanks to the flavonoids found in citrus fruits, Dr. Heber said. The anti-inflammatory substance has also been linked to repairing cell damage and keeping arteries healthy. Also the vitamin C found in these fruits helps produce more collagen in your skin to help with the outer signs of aging: wrinkles.

YELLOW-GREEN: Load up on avocado, spinach and other yellow-green vegetables, Heber say. “These foods have lupene, which goes to the macula, the part of the retina that is exposed to the most ultraviolet lights. A common cause of blindness for people over 65 is age-related macular degeneration. It’s believed the antioxidant [lupene] localizing there prevents further damage to the eye.”

GREEN: Vegetables like broccoli, brussel sprouts, bok choy, mustard, wasabi and horseradish are in this family, according to Heber. “They have isothiocyanates in them, which have a lot of preventative and detoxifying effects in the body.”

WHITE-GREEN: Onion, garlic’s, chives, asparagus, etc. They’re all rich with the antioxidant allyl sulphide, says Dr. Heber.

RED-PURPLE: Grapes, blackberries, blueberries, pomegranates’ and cranberries are rich in polyphenol’s, which are anti-inflammatory.
