Question: Over couple of years I’d found I’d somehow managed to accumulate a lot of fat around my waist, love handles ha ha ha. At 43, I suppose ‘middle-age’ spread might have had something to do with it. I have been a regular walker for years but now it’s not making much difference to my out of shape physique. Please help me.

 Answer: I recommend the following two main changes:

1. Cut almost all starchy carbohydrates like all sugars and grains from your diet, and eat mainly proteins and vegetables.

2. In addition to the regular walking, add just a few minutes  of resistance exercise each day.

The rationale for cutting down on sugar and grains is that these carbs produce insulin response and promote fat storage in your body.

The resistance exercise other than burning calories, speeds up your metabolism. High metabolism helps fat loss even when you are sleeping. Strength training also boosts strength (which helps your joints to work better) and improves the look of my physique. 

Ten Commandments for Avoiding Heart Disease:

  1. Don't smoke. If you find it impossible to quit, at least try to cut back and smoke only additive-free cigarettes. Smokers should avoid polyunsaturated oils at all costs. Saturated fats and vitamins A and D are particularly protective of the lungs.
  2. Exercise regularly but remember slow & steady wins the race. Go to a Gym or have a few exercise machines at home if you are short on time. A brisk daily walk or any sports are all appropriate.
  3. Avoid overweight by eating nutrient-dense foods and keeping sweets to a minimum, but avoid crash dieting.
  4. Don't stress yourself too much. Counteract stress by doing something that you love to do everyday. During periods of unavoidable hardship or loss, increase consumption of foods rich in protective nutrients.
  5. As much as possible, avoid exposure to fumes, chemicals, pollutants and pesticides.
  6. Avoid all processed foods labeled "lowfat" or that contain polyunsaturated vegetable oils, hydrogenated fats, white flour, refined sugar and additives.
  7. Consume high-quality animal products including a variety of seafood and milk, butter, cheese, eggs, meat, fats and organ meats from animals raised on green pasture.
  8. Consume a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits, preferably organically grown.
  9. Ensure sufficient mineral intake by using whole dairy products; bone broths; and whole grains, legumes and nuts that have been properly prepared to reduce phytic acid and other factors that block mineral absorption.41
  10. Supplement the diet with foods rich in protective factors including small amounts of cod liver oil (vitamins A and D); wheat germ oil (vitamin E); flax oil (omega-3 fatty acids); kelp (iodine); brewers yeast (B vitamins); desiccated liver (vitamin B12); rose hip or acerola powder (vitamin C); and coconut oil (antimicrobial fatty acids).
