Making Money From Home

I have seen a lot of postings from people saying that network marketing is a scam. Well as in any other business there are people who will succeed and those who will fail. Usually the failures are screaming scam. It may be that they didn't do their due diligence or they were looking for pie in the sky, and bought into the idea that work wouldn't be required of them for them to make all kinds of money.

We all know that in the real world some kind of exchange must happen to really make any money, and you must have a product that people want and need. The Feast from Uri International is such a product. It is full of organic whole food and nutrition that the body is needing to remain or become healthy again.

So how does one market this product? Urilife is putting together the best marketing systems. They will be doing radio infomercials starting this month, print ads also. Beginning next year they will start TV infomercials also. And all of this will be avaliable in a co-op form so everyone can pool their money to get the best advertising available.

This is going to boom Urilife and the Feast and make it a household name. If you see the potential, you should find out more at www.urilife.com/lbeattie

Diabetes Epidemic

Today I was reading the front page of the Pittsburgh Pa. newspaper, The Post-Gazette and there was an article about diabetes being an epidemic in western Pa. I too, have been diagnosed with diabetes type two for several years so it caught my eye. In the article it talked about a women recently diagnosed with diabetes who had no symptoms of the disease. Symptoms include frequent urination, excessive thirst,being hungry, headaches and fatigue. She also has no family history of the disease. The article further explains treatment options and what can be done about diabetes. One of these things is good nutrition. Go to http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07238/812240-398.stm to read the article.

Actually the epidemic of diabetes is blamed on poor eating habits, too many carbohydrates and lack of exercise, but when considering the poor quality of food we get these days when we eat vegetables and fruits that are purchased in the grocery stores, I wonder if this may also be a contributing factor.

I'm not pretending to be any type of professional in this, but it does make me wonder.

My plan is to keep using the The Feast and keep feeling better! Go to www.urilife.net/lbeattie to see if The Feast could benefit you and your family.

The Body Knows

I have been drinking The Feast everyday for nearly a month now, and as you may know already I travel a lot and eat out very often. I was doing that actually the other day and I stopped at a fairly well known restaurant that served the traditional American breakfast. Eggs, pancakes, breakfast meats, the usual. I was looking forward to my food coming as I was hungry and it looked very good on arrival, but that's when things changed.

As I bit into the whole wheat pancakes I notices a blah sort of chemical taste to it. I shrugged it off, my taste buds must be changing I thought. So I took a bite of the sausage. There was a distinctive taste of chemicals there. Well my taste buds must be changing as I have eaten at this restaurant in the past and liked the food.

When I left the restaurant all I wanted was a Feast and drank that down immediately.

My opinion on this is that the body is responding to the nutritionally sound food that it receives in the feast and is no longer just happy with anything I may wish to put into it. It is no longer starving and wants the full nutrition and is actually craving the feast.

I am happy with this change and I know that my body will continue to flourish with The Feast.

You should try this too. Try the Feast for a month and see if you do not feel a difference in your own body. You can't lose either as the Feast comes with a 90 day money back guarantee! go to www.urilife.net/lbeattie to find out more.

What's The Vitamin Content?

The biggest question I get when I talk to people about The Feast(TM) is how much vitamin a, b,c etc. is in a serving. It's a natural question since we have all been indoctrinated into this way of viewing nutrition from the pharmaceutical companies which manufacture synthetic vitamins. We are used to seeing claims of there being so many mg. of vitamin c in our pasteurized orange juice all the time, and if you read further down the label you will find the name ascorbic acid which is a synthetic form of vitamin c. We never think to wonder why orange juice which is rich in vitamin c has to have any added to it. Well the packers of the orange juice who had it pasteurized, (essentially cooked) know that their product no longer contains any nutrition (that's why they add sugar to it to make it taste good) so they have to add synthetic nutrients. The reason why they have pasteurized it? Well they give long explanations as to how non pasteurized juices have salmonella and other germs in them that might make us sick, but the bottom line is shelf life.

Fresh fruit juice has a very short shelf life if it is not pasteurized. You can check this out for yourself by squeezing some fresh orange juice and then leaving it in the refrigerator for a couple of days. It goes bad quick, unlike pasteurized orange juice, heck you can leave that in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks and it won't smell or taste horrible. And if you take into consideration that the distributors of orange juice had to have shipped all that juice to you and the time it took for that, you will understand why they pasteurize juice.

Have you ever been to Florida in January when the oranges are being picked and taken to the juice producing plants. There is a most horrible smell as the juice is being pasteurized. When you squeeze orange juice at home, it has a very wholesome aroma. It makes your salivary glands perk up.

Anyways getting back to the original question as to how one judges how much vitamins are in a package of The Feast(TM). There have been studies done on various fruits and vegetable to determine what the nutrient contents of each fruit and vegetable are. You can find a partial chart at http://www.healthalternatives2000.com/ It is done by a Chiropractor and he has a link there to the FDA site where you can find out even more.

Ninety-five percent of fruits and vegetables are grown using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. I found a comparison study of fertilizers vs organic farming methods at http://www.nutrition4health.org/nohanews/NNSp02NutQualOrganicVsConv.htm and it is an eye opener as to what happens when non organic farming is used. Organic farming practices substantially increases the nutrients in foods along with vitamin content.

These sites are good places to find out more about the natural occurring amounts of vitamins and nutrients which are available in fruits and vegetables. Also go to www.urilife.net/lbeattie to find out how The Feast is a convenient and delicious solution to getting all of your fruits and vegetables everyday!

How are ORAC Values and Antioxidants Related?

Until recently I was not aware of the meaning of ORAC values. According to Wilkepedia it is "Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities of different foods. It was developed at the National Institute on Aging in Baltimore, Maryland. High scoring foods include Acai, Cerasus (Montmorency tart cherries) prunes, raisins, blueberries, kale, spinach, spices and cocoa. Foods with moderately high ORAC values include wild blueberries, pomegranates and black raspberries." You can find out more by going to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxygen_radical_absorbance_capacity.

Radicals have to do with the atoms in the body, usually with bodies we think of them as having cells as their basic building blocks and not generally do we view them as actually having atoms, electrons, neutrons and protons, but they do. When we are talking about free radical we are actually talking about electrons that have broken away from their atom and are floating around. Because they are floating around, they can attach to other atoms and cause changes to the atom and thereby the cell. This is what can start the process of disease, especially if too many of these free radicals attach to other atoms. Foods that contain high antioxidants slow or even stop these free radicals from occurring, maintaining the integrity of the atoms. For that reason foods with high ORAC values are being linked to better health, disease control and longevity by scientists.

So what can you do to maintain better health for you and your family? Consume produce, all kinds which are either organically grown or as naturally as possible. The latest recommendations by the government is for us to eat 5-9 fruits and vegetables a day.

I know that can be hard to eat all those servings a day so I would recommend The Feast(tm) by Uri International. Go to www.urilife.net/lbeattie to find out more about a delicious alternative that is convenient for any lifestyle.

What do I mean by whole foods?

You may be wondering what I mean by whole foods. It certainly is not a new concept, after all we have been eating whole foods throughout the centuries. It's just that today we cook, process, genetically engineer, modify and change our food in many different ways. For example when we cook our foods we leach out the nutients from the food into the water. That's why it is much better to steam our vegetables, so we do not loose these important nutrients. Steaming them until they are a bright color and still have a little crunch to them leaves some of the nutrients there for our bodies to use.

Raw foods are best for us. I'm not talking about meat but the veges, fruits and nuts. We do not eat nearly the amount of raw fruit and vegetable that our bodies need. Actually eating raw fruits and vegetables is very time consuming. Have you ever noticed that it takes a long time to eat a salad?

Yesterday when we were having dinner my husband ordered some fish and potatoes, (he had already eaten his small side salad) I had ordered a nice cobb salad. I was happily putting on the dressing and picking out the onions when I looked up to see him taking his last two bites of fish.

Well that's a strange story but true, how many times have you ladies ordered a salad to be the only one left eating while everyone at the table is looking at you? This could be one of the reasons people don't eat enough raw food, we are all very busy.

Today while looking at the internet, I found a great site on whole foods and what they do for the body. Go to http://curezone.com/blogs/m.asp?f=573&i=55and see what things like broccoli, apples and beets actually do for you.

There is also a lot of information about juicing there. Juicing is the best way to get your fruit and vegetables if you have the time. Just be sure you use organic produce that has not been irradiated.

Personally, the best way I have found to get all of my vegetables and fruits in every day is The Feast(tm), a delicious and easy powder I put right into water and drink. To find out more go to www.urilife.net/lbeattie

How do I know it works?

That's the question every one wants answered before they put their hard earned money into something, right? When I look on the Internet it seems everyone has something to sell. But how does one separate the good from the bad?

Nutritional supplements are coming out constantly and are promising to cure people of just about any disease imaginable. The latest fruit based product or vitamin or even drug are all being touted as the cure all, end all. Most of these products are effective to a point, and that is because they do not cover the entire spectrum of what the body needs to be completely nourished.

Our bodies are like engines, you could call them meat engines and like any other engine they need fuel. However as I discussed in the first part of my blog, the fuel we are being offered today is of little value to our bodies. So what happens? In many cases people start to over eat, trying to get enough fuel in their bodies to make up for the deficiency. Sugar cravings start because it an easy energy source for the body. But sugar has a big downfall, it is devoid of nutrients and so the body never gets fed and it craves more sugar just to keep it operating.

Have you noticed the numbers of people becoming obese in the society? I have noticed it as I travel a lot and go to a lot of restaurants. I am seeing more and more obese men and women at very young ages.I have watched how they eat and have seen people at buffets filling an entire dinner plate with the desserts offered on the bar. Not just one but two and even six different desserts.

Now what if the foods these people were consuming actually had some nutrient content in them? Bodies which are well nourished do not need to over eat. They become satisfied, the body has the energy to get up and move.

There is another aspect to this non nutritious food we are being sold and that is toxins. Foods that can't be assimilated into the body become waste and waste produces toxins, especially if it can not be gotten rid of properly by the body. If you look at it logically a body which doesn't want to move and is eating food that has very little nutrients in it will hold on to the food in an attempt to leach out what nutrition it can from the food consumed. It has to in order to stay alive. Conversely a body which is being fed good nutrition will utilize those nutrients and dispose of any unusable waste.

Is there a solution? Yes. How about a nutritional product that has been minimally processed and contains all the nutrients in an assimilable form and is good tasting to boot? Look at the sample page there and get youself some inexpensive samples to see how this product tastes and works. Find out more at www.urilife.net/lbeattie
