Get yourself screened for breast cancer, say survivors

7th Pink Caravan Ride will start on March 7 to offer free clinical examinations for breast cancer

Image Credit: Supplied

Jennifer Wright and Charlotte Robineau, breast cancer survivors, say a patient’s attitude can have a tangible effect on their recovery. But the first step is to get screened.
Dubai: People never think it’s going to happen to them, until it does.
But breast cancer doesn’t discriminate. It affects women and men, young and old, healthy and unhealthy individuals and without screening, there’s no way to know that the disease has struck until it’s too late.
“Without screening, people just don’t know whether everything is fine or not. You never think it is going to happen to you. You may have the early stages of breast cancer and not know it — it’s like chipping a nail, it doesn’t hurt,” Jennifer Wright, 51, a breast cancer survivor said. “The treatment makes you sick, not the initial cancer.”
Wright is among the scores of breast cancer survivors who will again be on horseback beginning March 7 to champion the message of early breast cancer detection based on their first-hand experience for the 7th pan-UAE Pink Caravan Ride.
The 10-day horseback expedition includes the equine route, the medical route that gives free screenings to everyone, fund-raising initiatives, and awareness events.
But breast cancer doesn’t discriminate. It affects women and men, young and old, healthy and unhealthy individuals and without screening, there’s no way to know that the disease has struck until it’s too late.

A Beginner's Guide to Paleo for Anyone Curious About Going Caveman

So you get the text: Can we go out for burgers (no buns!) tonight instead of pizza? Oh no, is she on this caveman diet everyone’s been raving about too? You don't know whether to be mad or happy for her, but you can't help but wonder why the Paleo diet is getting all this hype. You’re intrigued. We don’t blame you. What is Paleo, anyway? Is it for you? Let’s discuss.

WTF Is Paleo?

A Paleo-friendly diet puts the focus on eating real, natural, whole foods that have gone through little or no processing to get on your plate. Simply put: You eat plants and animals. We’re talking meats, fish, eggs, greens, veggies, fruits, and nuts.
Sounds easy, right? Maybe for cavemen it was… because they weren’t tempted by the thousands of packaged foods we have access to. If they couldn’t hunt it or gather it, they didn’t eat it. Today the only hunting we’re doing is for good deals on food we can gather into our grocery carts. In the cart goes bread, cheese, yogurt, rice, candy bars, milk, chips, cereal, etc.
Paleo experts took note of our modern-day behavior and thought, if obesity and disease rates are rising as quickly as processed foods are flying off shelves, maybe we should go back to our roots and eat like our early ancestors did?

A Modern-Day Caveman

Before you grab a spear to go after tonight’s dinner, simmer down. It’s 2017, and grocery stores and farmer's markets are there to do the work for you. How convenient! (Well, finding parking is a b*tch, but we guess it’s better than fighting a buffalo.)  
So your Paleo life can look something like this: Wake up in the morning to scrambled eggs with spinach, chicken sausage, and avocado, and a cup of coffee (yes, coffee is Paleo!) with a splash of almond milk. For lunch it’s all about the spaghetti squash and slow cooker Bolognese you made overnight. And oh, you can’t wait to dig your hands into shrimp stir-fry with cauliflower rice tonight. For dessert, it’s a few pieces of dark chocolate. Sounds good? That’s Paleo for ya. And that doesn’t even scratch the surface of the seriously good food that’s permitted on the plan.

What You Can Eat

  • Chicken. Probably already a staple in your diet.
  • Fish. BRB. Gone fishing to the fish market.
  • Red meat. So many meatballs.
  • Pork. Slow cooker Paleo pulled pork FTW.
  • Eggs. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Vegetables. As if you thought you couldn’t eat these.
  • Fruits. The less sugary ones (berries) are best.
  • Nuts. Peanuts aren’t allowed, but go nuts on almonds.
  • Natural oils. 'Cause ya gotta sauté the veg in something.
  • Healthy fats. Because avocados.
  • Natural sweeteners. Honey and maple syrup? YAS.
Pro tip: Prioritize organic, grass-fed meats and free-range eggs, and opt for wild-caught seafood and organic vegetables... when you can. 

What’s Off-Limits

  • Processed foods. Yes, even the natural, gluten-free, avocado oil-based chips.
  • Refined sugar. Good-bye, Snickers. We’ll be making a Paleo version of you soon.
  • Refined carbs. RIP Bagel Fridays.
  • Legumes. Silver lining: Maybe you’ll have less gas.
  • Dairy. But have you tried banana “ice cream”?
  • Grains. Not even brown rice.
  • Vegetable oils. Easy at home, tough when eating out.
Pro tip: Just like bad breakups, “out of sight, out of mind” works here too. Get these foods out of the house, and it’ll be easier to say good-bye.

What’s Up for Debate

There are tons of Paleo bloggers and experts out there, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned from them, it’s that there’s no such thing as perfect Paleo. Our friend Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo puts it well:
There isn’t just one definitive, monolithic, one-size-fits-all Paleo diet. Some Paleo eaters choose to go super low-carb, while others are happy to munch on a baked potato or a bowl of white rice every now and then. There are Paleo eaters who can’t imagine life without dairy, and more orthodox folks who refuse to touch even a pat of butter with a 10-foot pole.
So, really, there’s no debate. It’s finding the Paleo plan that works best for you. If that means adding a sprinkle of goat cheese to your baked sweet potato every now and then, or going out for ice cream on your birthday, we think that’s OK.

9 (Unofficial) Paleo Commandments 

Since there really isn’t a Paleo rule book set in stone (age), we collected guidelines that most experts and bloggers follow. These will help any Paleo newbie understand what to expect when you’re going full (or even halfsie) caveman.
  1. Eat plenty of whole foods.
    We can’t live without sweet potatoes, avocados, and eggs while eating Paleo.
     
  2. Eat less processed foods.
    Packaged chips, cookies, breads, etc. are a no. While it might seem hard at first, you might find it harder to add them back into your diet once you start feeling better.
     
  3. Just because it’s packaged doesn’t make it totally off-limits.
    We're definitely stocking our pantry with these Paleo-approved staples. And when we're on the road, we're bringing these travel-friendly snacks.
     
  4. Avoid foods that don’t make you feel good.
    Even if something is “Paleo approved,” that doesn’t mean you have to eat it. Bolognese recipe calls for red meat but you're not a "red meat" person? Go for lean turkey instead.
     
  5. Find what works for you.
    Some Paleo peeps eat rice on occasion (gasp!), while some won’t even say the word “rice” without flinching. Be your own caveman and create a plan that will help you succeed at feeling your best.
     
  6. Don’t be too strict.
    We like to follow the 80/20 rule: 80 percent of the time we’ll eat Paleo, but 20 percent of the time we’re not saying no to pizza, rice, cookies, or cheese. The leniency makes it easier to stick to the plan the majority of the time.
     
  7. Learn to love cooking.
    Since you’re eating less processed foods, you’ll be making more homemade meals. Don’t let it stress you out. Find easy recipes (like all of these), and ones you really love, so it becomes a joy, not a nuisance.
     
  8. Don’t entirely say good-bye to your favorite junk foods.
    Paleo allows you to still enjoy pancakes, chicken tenders, and chocolate… as long as they’re made with Paleo-approved ingredients. Think coconut flour flapjacks, almond-crusted tenders, and three-ingredient chocolate.
     
  9. If ya booze, ya don’t necessarily lose.
    Unless you and alcohol go together like oil and water, it’s hard completely giving it up. We’re not saying to drink three daiquiris at brunch, but wine, gluten-free beers, and hard ciders are OK on occasion. Even Paleo guru and author of The Paleo Solution Robb Wolf suggests a combo of soda water, lime, and 100 percent agave tequila for all of us lushes.  

Why Go Paleo?

To get a six-pack, amirite? Just kidding. While this plan is popular for helping you whittle your waist and bulge your biceps, it’s so much more than a CrossFitter’s dream diet. Anyone who wants to clean up their eating and lifestyle habits can give it a go. Although further research is still needed, a number of smaller trials have suggested benefits in the weight loss and metabolism departments.
Experts from the Paleo Plan suggest the following results are what Paleo-ers most commonly experience:
  • Weight loss
  • Feeling pleasantly full for longer
  • Less sugar cravings
  • Clearer skin
  • Increase in energy
  • Physically more muscular 
  • Improved digestion
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Healthier relationship with food

Is Paleo for Everyone?

If you’ve already found a way of eating that makes you feel your best, then you should probably stick to that. If you're still feeling kinda (or really) crappy on a daily basis, then you may want to give it a try. Going Paleo and taking a break from grains, dairy, and soy might be the stepping stone you need to find out if eating more animal proteins and less processed foods (and the occasional glass of wine; oops we said it) is what you’re body needs.
Happy caveman-ing!

How to Lose Weight Fast: 3 Simple Steps, Based on Science

By 

There are many ways to lose a lot of weight fast.
However, most of them will make you hungry and unsatisfied.
If you don’t have iron willpower, then hunger will cause you to give up on these plans quickly.
The plan outlined here will:
  • Reduce your appetite significantly.
  • Make you lose weight quickly, without hunger.
  • Improve your metabolic health at the same time.

Here is a simple 3-step plan to lose weight fast.

1. Cut Back on Sugars and Starches

The most important part is to cut back on sugars and starches (carbs).
These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.
When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs.
Another benefit of lowering insulin is that your kidneys shed excess sodium and water out of your body, which reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight (12).
It is not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds (sometimes more) in the first week of eating this way, both body fat and water weight.
This is a graph from a study comparing low-carb and low-fat diets in overweight/obese women (3).
Weight Loss Graph, Low Carb vs Low Fat
The low-carb group is eating until fullness, while the low-fat group is calorie restricted and hungry.
Cut the carbs, lower your insulin and you will start to eat less calories automatically and without hunger (4).
Put simply, lowering your insulin puts fat loss on “autopilot.
Bottom Line: Removing sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet will lower your insulin levels, kill your appetite and make you lose weight without hunger.

2. Eat Protein, Fat and Vegetables

Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20-50 grams per day.
Girl Eating Kebab
Protein Sources:

  • Meat – Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon, etc.
  • Fish and Seafood – Salmon, trout, shrimps, lobsters, etc.
  • Eggs – Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs are best.

The importance of eating plenty of protein can not be overstated.
This has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day (567).
High protein diets can also reduce obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and make you so full that you automatically eat 441 fewer calories per day… just by adding protein to your diet (89).
When it comes to losing weight, protein is the king of nutrients. Period.
Low-Carb Vegetables:
Vegetables

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Swiss Chard
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Celery

  • Full list here.
  • Don’t be afraid to load your plate with these low-carb vegetables. You can eat massive amounts of them without going over 20-50 net carbs per day.
    A diet based on meat and vegetables contains all the fiber, vitamins and minerals you need to be healthy. There is no physiological need for grains in the diet.
    Butter Curls
    Fat Sources:
  • Olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Butter
  • Tallow
    Eat 2-3 meals per day. If you find yourself hungry in the afternoon, add a 4th meal.
    Don’t be afraid of eating fat, trying to do both low-carb AND low-fat at the same time is a recipe for failure. It will make you feel miserable and abandon the plan.
    The best cooking fat to use is coconut oil. It is rich in fats called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). These fats are more fulfilling than others and can boost metabolism slightly (1011).
    There is no reason to fear these natural fats, new studies show that saturated fat doesn’t raise your heart disease risk at all (1213).
    To see how you can assemble your meals, check out this low carb meal plan and this list of low carb recipes.
    Bottom Line: Assemble each meal out of a protein source, a fat source and a low-carb vegetable. This will put you into the 20-50 gram carb range and drastically lower your insulin levels.

    3. Lift Weights 3 Times Per Week

    Dumbbells
    You don’t need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is recommended.
    The best option is to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a warm up, lift weights, then stretch.
    If you’re new to the gym, ask a trainer for some advice.
    By lifting weights, you will burn a few calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight (1415).
    Studies on low-carb diets show that you can even gain a bit of muscle while losing significant amounts of body fat (16).
    If lifting weights is not an option for you, then doing some easier cardio workouts like running, jogging, swimming or walking will suffice.
    Bottom Line: It is best to do some sort of resistance training like weight lifting. If that is not an option, cardio workouts work too.

    Optional – Do a “Carb Re-feed” Once Per Week

    Overweight Man Eating Cake
    You can take one day “off” per week where you eat more carbs. Many people prefer Saturday.
    It is important to try to stick to healthier carb sources like oats, rice, quinoa, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruits, etc.
    But only this one higher carb day, if you start doing it more often than once per week then you’re not going to see much success on this plan.
    If you must have a cheat meal and eat something unhealthy, then do it on this day.
    Be aware that cheat meals or carb refeeds are NOT necessary, but they can up-regulate some fat burning hormones like leptin and thyroid hormones (1718).
    You will gain some weight during your re-feed day, but most of it will be water weight and you will lose it again in the next 1-2 days.
    Bottom Line: Having one day of the week where you eat more carbs is perfectly acceptable, although not necessary.

          The 10 Healthiest Beverages (Other Than Water)

          There are only so many times you can say, “Just water for me, thanks,” when the waiter takes your beverage order before you start to get bored. Water is a healthy and safe bet, sure. In fact, it can’t be beat. So what do you do when you want more options but don’t want to stray from the healthy side of things? Luckily, there are actually several beverages that can do you one favor or another while spicing up your waterlogged palette.

           1. Pomegranate Juice



          Image: © Nitr/Fotolia.com

          The powerful pomegranate has been consistently praised recently for the hefty antioxidants it packs. Research has suggested that the red juice may help prevent inflammation, heart disease, and cancer. So having a glass every now and then is a good choice. Just make sure you look at what you are drinking, as some bottles are diluted with other liquids or have added sugars. You want pure pomegranate. Don’t accept anything less.

          2. Low Fat Milk



          Image: © Africa Studio/Fotolia.com

          Milk has always been there for you, hasn’t it? Touted as an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D since you were a child, it may seem like less of a grown-up drink than other options, but low fat and skim milk are still great sources of protein and other essential micronutrients. And these low-fat varieties are the best choices because they contain much less saturated fat than reduced-fat milk or whole milk.

          3. Green Tea



          Image: © efired - Fotolia.com

          A cup of green tea is a better choice than a cup of joe when that afternoon slump hits. You are jonesing for a caffeine buzz, so this will do the trick, with just enough caffeine to give you that energy boost but not so much that you crash later. And you'll also get a nice side of antioxidants with each cup.

          4. Orange Juice



          Image: © Brent Hofacker/Fotolia.com

          A glass of fresh squeezed OJ really hits the spot, but some feel it takes too much effort to make on a regular basis. If that is the case, save it for when it will be most handy, like come allergy season. Seasonal allergies have been shown to be soothed with both vitamin C and quercetin (a form of flavonol found in certain fruits and vegetables), both of which that freshly squeezed orange juice contains.

          5. Beet Juice



          Image: © Printemps/Fotolia.com

          Get ready to hear the intimidating resume of the beet. Beets have the ability to lower your blood pressure, increase your stamina, increase the blood flow to the brain in older adults (slowing the progression of dementia), and make for a healthy liver with their zero trans and saturated fats and high magnesium, calcium, and iron levels.

          The only down side? Beet juice is a little hard to find in most grocery stores, so you may need to make this one at home or order it from a juice bar.

          6. Hot Chocolate



          Image: © olyina/Fotolia.com

          Yes, cocoa has a place on this list. How could that possibly be? Well if it weren’t for your least favorite monthly friend, it might not have made it. But if you're dealing with menstrual cramps, one of the best natural ways to ease the pain is through drinking beverages with high magnesium content.

          In order to get that magnesium, you need make your own homemade hot chocolate with raw cocoa powder (not that powdered stuff). If you need to sweeten it up a bit, try almond milk and honey or a little bit of maple syrup.

          7. Kale Juice

          Image: © ckellyphoto/Fotolia.com


          Kale, kale, kale. Everybody loves kale. It might seem annoyingly trendy, but there are legitimate reasons why so many people are in love with this stuff. The dark, leafy green is packed with vitamins and minerals that help with everything from bone health to regulating your bowels.

          And drinking your veggies is an excellent way to get multiple servings in one drink. Just avoid buying bottled, as those varieties tend to be pretty high in sodium. It might not be a bad idea to invest in a juicer and start making kale juice, and other veggie juices, at home.

          8. Lemon Juice


          Image: © Andrzej Tokarski/Fotolia.com

          Yes, you read that right. Not lemonade, lemon juice. You should drink lemon juice. That’s gross right? Well, it certainly takes care of gross stuff for us, like cleansing the liver, stimulating bile production, and helping with digestion. Lemon also brings vitamin C to the party to boost your immune system.

          But no one was going to make you drink it on its own. Promise. Squeeze a half into a cool glass of water in the morning to get your day going right.


          And yes, this healthy beverage involves water, but water is really being used as a mixer here. So it still earns a place on this list.

          9. Ginger Tea



          Image: © olyina/Fotolia.com

          Ginger is an excellent natural remedy for all tummy troubles. It has been promoted as a way to sooth an upset stomach, relieve motion sickness and pregnancy related nausea, and ease digestion.


          If this sounds like something you might enjoy, brew a cup of fresh ginger tea yourself by steeping one or two thin slices of fresh gingerroot in a cup of hot water. Spoon in a little honey if the resulting brew turns out to be on the spicy side.

          10. Cranberry Juice



          Image: © bit24/Fotolia.com

          Nobody likes a UTI. And once you have one, it can take up to 2 days after treatment starts for your symptoms to go away. So let’s get on the proactive side of things and help prevent the UTI by drinking pure cranberry juice, which one study found can work “against infections and bacteria within 8 hours of consumption.”

          Now that study used cranberry juice cocktail, because it is the most popular cranberry beverage. But you can get the same benefits from pure cranberry juice and should choose it over cranberry juice cocktail. Why? One is loaded with added sugar. The other is not. Hint: The one with sugar is the one with cocktail in the name.
