Dangers of Food Dyes and Food Coloring

Posted by Jennifer Gebbie on November 11, 2014 | 0 Comments

Three years ago I was guilty of consuming food dyes and coloring. I never gave much thought to them and I had no idea how dangerous they were. My days spent in my stressed out corporate job, I'd snack on handfuls of Skittles and Mike & Ikes. I loved the vitamin gummies- I treated them like candy. I used to take One A Day Women's and sometimes almost puked if I ate them on an empty stomach.... and now I know why!

How To Read Labels On Your Dietary Supplements

Supplementation is key not only for weight loss, but also to maintain a healthy body. Just as it is important to know your farmer and understand your food quality, it is also important to understand the manufacturing practices of your supplements and only buy from companies  that you can trust.

Fastest Way To Lose Weight: Supplement More!

I've come to the hard realization that no matter how hard you try, you can NOT out train a bad diet. I was talking with my Postman this week (who I love dearly) and asked him how many miles he walked a day. I was shocked when he said his route was 6-7 miles. I thought to myself- "How is it possible that a guy that walks 6-7 miles, 5 days a week has a HUGE belly." I quickly reminded myself that it is just another example that we can truly never out run a bad diet.

What do white spots on fingernails mean?

Posted by Jennifer Gebbie on March 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

Growing up I always had white spots on my nails and I never knew what it meant. 
Today I now know that my entire life I was always zinc deficient. 

Dr. Osborne of GlutenFreeSocity.org talks about zinc deficiency and how it is common among gluten sensitive people. 

Due to my leaky gut, zinc was a mineral I became deficient in, so I started taking Dr. Osborne's zinc supplement. The great thing about his supplements is that they are #TrueGlutenFree. There are no gluten fillers with wheat or corn that you have to worry about.

Recommended Daily Supplements + Gluten Free Supplements

While I do believe that people can overdo it with supplements or take levels their body's do not need, I do think there are 4 supplemets that everyone should consider taking. Remember, taking supplements isn't your pass to eating unhealthy, processed foods. I still want to see you eating your 5-7 fruits and vegetables a day, at a MINIMUM!!!! 
It is also important that you are buying quality supplements. I personally would not buy anything from your regular drug store (i.e. CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid). Many of those supplements are produced by companies who don't typically follow best practices when it comes to food standards. They also fill their supplements with unnecessary additives, color dyes, and sugars.

Alternative Medicine = Organic, Whole Food

My boyfriend and I have differing opinions when it comes taking OTC drugs. He grew up in a household that was readily stocked with medications and always had the biggest bottle of ibuprofen you could find. Perfect example - yesterday he was complaining of a headache after being in the sun all afternoon. Instead of grabbing a glass of water (as I knew he was just dehydrated), he goes for the bottle of ibuprofen.

We take medicine and expect results. Why is it wrong to think we can't eat the right foods and expect similar results? Somewhere between the paradigm shift of our hunting and gathering days to mass industrialization of "food" we forgot what it is like to eat real, whole, pure food. 

We have come to accept that we go to the grocery and buy foods that are so processed that they have to be fortified with vitamins and minerals to make them "safe" to consume again. Did you know that when grains were first introduced to the market, the government made manufactures fortify them with vitamins and minerals because they realized grains were making people sick? Dr. Peter Osborne talks more about the fortification process and the detrimental qualities of grains
