Are you getting enough proteins through your day?

February 16, 2018, Author: annalisa

Recently I had my blood exams done. I do a complete checkup usually every 6-8 months to see if everything is all right or I need to work on something. The last ones came up pretty good, and I just needed to adjust my proteins slightly. But first, what are proteins? Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells, and we all need them for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller units called amino acids, which are attached in long chains. Twenty different types of amino acids can be combined to make a protein. The sequence of amino acids determines each protein’s unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function. (U.S. National Library of Medicine) Why do we need these Nutrients in our everyday routine? First of all, they are vital to our body’s functioning and keep our muscles healthy and robust. How many times have you heard that proteins make us healthy? It is true! Just think that there is not one cell in our body that don’t require proteins. All our cells and organs, as also our muscles, connective tissues, and bones are held together thanks to the protein as a fundamental component. Regulatory hormones as insulin are also protein, and structural, immunoproteins, transport proteins or again enzymes, they all are necessary to maintain our body healthy. How much protein do […]

How about Juicing!

January 22, 2018, Author: annalisa

I recently came back to Miami after spending three amazing months in Italy. When I went there, middle of October, it was still sunny an warm, but I was wondering how it could have been spending the time during the winter there. It has been six long years since I didn’t stay in my country during the coldest time, and I was wondering if I could have escaped the flu and bacteria that this season usually generates. Since I changed the food I was eating, and I started to pay more attention in having the quality ones, my body responds so well, and juicing is a huge part of the benefits I get. What I do pretty much every day is drinking my favorite juice which is a mix of oranges, grapefruits, ginger, carrots, celery, green apple, lemon or lime, and grapes. The deliciousness of this potent drink is huge; this is what I call my “Elisir di Lunga Vita” which means “Long Life Elixir.” I believe it’s what saved me from catching a cold and flu while I was there, even if I was strictly in contact sometimes with sick people. How powerful! My health conditions are overall good, and in a healthy person juicing is salutary because the natural sugar contained in the fruit especially, is easy to digest and to assimilate from our body. People who have diabetes though have to be more careful. A wrong diet and crappy food can cause diabetes, so first adjust this […]

Nourish your inner child

November 7, 2017, Author: annalisa

Let’s not forget to nourish the child that is in us. While growing and becoming adults, life changes as we do, and we start to have different needs from when we were a child. It can be busy, and it can become complicated. Work, family, tasks, it’s hard to find some time to enjoy things. I have mentioned before the importance of living quality time, where we genuinely enjoy our ourselves in tranquillity, and this makes me think of one more important point. We often forget to listen to our inner child, the one that all of us carries inside since we are young. The characteristics I love the most when I think of a child are the honesty, the innocence, the spontaneity, the curiosity, that is naturally part of being a child. Once we grow up and our character develops, we tend to lose or forget these peculiarities, but to be honest, I’m always grateful when I still find these qualities in people. It’s what I truly love! That’s why in my opinion is essential to nourish such a beautiful qualities, and one way to do so could be remembering how we were when we were young. I remember that every time I look into my niece’s eyes for example, and the way she looks at things is a motivation for me. Just this last weekend we went together to the Luna Park. Nicole wanted to go there at any cost, so I said why not, and it was […]

Water: an Elixir of Beauty

October 24, 2017, Author: annalisa

Establish good habits that can help you to keep a healthy routine is essential, and a basic one is undoubtedly drinking water. As we start our new day, the very first thing we can do to ourselves is drinking a glass of purified water. Consider the fact we have slept for many hours and rest our system. We are sleeping, but our body is working on restoring the damaged cells. It works hard to itself to expel toxins. That’s why it is necessary to drink water as soon as we wake up, it will help the expulsion. Water has been for many years the second most popular beverage in the U.S. after soft drinks. That means that the average of people don’t consider that drinking water is an important action to do. So how much water should we drink daily? While I was studying to certified, I learned that drinking between 64 ounces and 0.67% of our body weight is the right amount of water intake to keep ourselves hydrated. For example, if our body weight is 150 pounds, then you need to drink anywhere between 64 ounces and 100 ounces of water per day. I like to think of water as a BEAUTY ELIXIR. It’s so good for many reasons: • IT REGULATES THE BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL Drinking water regularly will help our body flush some of the extra sugar when we go to the bathroom, through the urine. • IT KEEPS THE KIDNEYS HEALTHY Water is fundamental to […]

360 Health For Success – Why did I choose this as a business name?

February 13, 2017, Author: annalisa

Why did I choose the “360 Health For Success” name for my Health Coaching Business? When I first started to think about a name that could fit for me, I was so overwhelmed, but then things began clear out. I was asking for some feedback to my friends and my Coaching Tribe. One person mainly made my thoughts, giving me one valuable feedback, also creating many doubts in me. She made me think even more on the meaning of the business name I was about to choose. She said: “I like your name so much, but if you don’t mind I’d like to show my point of view. When you turn into 360 degrees, you come back exactly where you were, but you completely change when you turn upside down, and you move to 180 degrees. I think that is this the idea of your logo, isn’t it?” At first, when I read the message, I was confused and started to think about what I’m going to do now! I felt that the name I selected was the one that fit me, and I did some research. Get Yourself a Spin! If you look in the dictionary, the meaning of 360 degrees implies “complete – all around” – for instance: “His statement indicates a 360-degree change in his viewpoint”. If you do a complete 360-degree turn, you end up back where you started (360=0) TRUE! So if you want to face a different way, you do a 180. But that […]
