Does Turkey Make You Sleepy?

You’ve heard it said a dozen times – it’s all the tryptophan in the turkey that makes people feel sleepy on Thanksgiving afternoon.  Well, it was a good theory, but I think it’s time to send it gobbling off into urban legend land.  Here’s how it went: tryptophan (which is high in turkey), gets converted into serotonin that is not only the “mood elevator” compound, but also induces sleepiness. Nice idea, but let’s carve down into the idea and see if it holds dressing, er, water. First of all, there is a tiny bit more tryptophan in turkey than in other meats, but not THAT much.   Second, it has to compete for absorption with all the other amino acids that form protein (that’s what meat is, folks: muscles).  Third, tryptophan is more effective taken on an empty stomach.  So it’s certainly not the tryptophan. What could it possibly be . . . ?  Well . . . let’s look at what else is usually on that plate, and what’s in it:
  • Dressing – mostly simple carbs
  • Potatoes – mostly simple carbs
  • Cranberry jelly – mostly simple carbs
  • Sweet potatoes – mostly simple carbs
  • Corn bread – mostly simple carbs
  • Apple pie – mostly simple carbs 
  • Pumpkin pie – mostly simple carbs
  • Candy – mostly simple carbs 
  • Apple cider – mostly simple carbs
  • Plus, of course, alcohol – carbs and ethanol (in the early afternoon)
Think we might have found a culprit or two?  Yessiree . . . an enormous consumption of simple carbs floods the body with sugars to which the pancreas has to respond with elevated insulin production.  The insulin at some point overshoots the mark, and down you go!!  Add some alcohol into the mix and it’s no surprise that a snooze quickly follows. So next time someone tries on that old tryptophan tale, you can set them straight.  Funny thing is, the turkey is without question the LEAST sleep-inducing part of the whole meal!!!  Gobble that one for size!!

Let's watch those carbs this Thanksgiving, let's try to stay as healthy as we can..for our spouses, our children, ourselves

Get Fit with David Banner

After regaining control of his spiraling health in 2008, rapper David Banner has teamed up with interactive fitness company PumpOne to concoct a new iPhone/iPod weight loss application. The new app, called 'David Banner's Work Out or Die,' will provide subscribers with workout regimens and weight loss advice Banner found effective during his struggle to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Banner, after clocking in at 225 lbs, put himself on a fitness regimen that allowed him to drop 57 lbs in three months time. Pressing health concerns, which included sleep apnea, high blood pressure and the threat of diabetes made weight loss an urgent situation for the Southern rapper.

"People are really interested in how I lost weight," Banner told AllHipHop. Banner says that the number of friends and fans who sought out his advice on successful weight loss tips prompted him to create a program to effectively share his strategies. "One of my friends that works at Apple said, 'You need to take it to your people and stop talking about it. You're helping people's lives. That's a way for you to continue that moveme

Today's Blog in special appreciation for our Veterans and those currently risking their lives

God Bless and protect them and God Bless America!

PJs (a nickname pronounced 'pee jays'), are United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and Air Combat Command (ACC) operatives tasked with recovery and medical treatment of personnel in humanitarian and combat environments. They are the only members of the DoD specifically organized, trained and equipped to conduct personnel recovery operations in hostile or denied areas as a primary mission. PJs are also used to support NASA missions and have been used to recover astronauts after water landings.

It is my duty as a Pararescueman to save life and to aid the injured. I will be prepared at all times to perform my assigned duties quickly and efficiently, placing these duties before personal desires and comforts. These things I do, that others may live.

Do You want to Take Part in this Recession?

A yөar agο this week, Thө American people elөcted а President who had promiѕed during thө camрaign hө would "сut taxes for 95% οf workөrs аnd their families," expаnd thө Army Ьy 65,000 and the Marines Ьy 27,000, and enact а net spөnding сut" fοr the federal government. Lower Taxes, strong defense, and а ѕhrinking sіze οf tһe Government.

Since Ьeing ѕworn into οffice, Presіdent Obаma hаs raised taxes, weakenөd ouг Defensөs and overseөn arguably thө largest expanѕion of goveгnment іn history.

Our future аs аn economy іsn't coming oυt of Washington. Our futuгe рrosperity іs coming οut of the hoрes, dreаms and individual freedοms of the Aмerican People.

When left alone, we tend to prosper.

You haνe to make yοur decision if you aгe gοing to take part in the recession.

As fοr ouг new President, if yοur not а fan..pray foг һim, һe's yoυr President. If you arө а fan, praү for hіm. He's үour рresident, not yοur savior Your hope wіll bө crυshed if yοu waіt for him аnd hіs administration--or anyone else -- to fiх your life аnd giνe yοu money.

Now is the tіme to start planning fοr үour fυture.Everyone want tο achieve financial indepөndence, Ьut мost do nοt possess the discipline and viѕion tο gөt theм there.You neөd а concrete, realіstic plаn for financial freedom.

Network Marketing with my Team - Are you right for us?

Before you read on, Ask yourself these questions.

Why and How Much?

Why are you looking for a business opportunity like the one I have to offer?

It's great you may want to make an extra $100-$200 a month, but then this just isn't the right fit.

You want to make $2000 $5000 $10000 a month?

If your gonna think about it, you may as well think big

Finally, close your eyes, can you see yourself making that kind of money. 
If you can't see it, it ain't gonna happen

There are 3 things you need to understand that most people miss these.

1. You underestimate the number of people you need to talk to.
    You are going to talk to a lot of people.

2. Learn the 4 S's

       Some will
       Some won't
       So What
       Somebody is always waiting

3. Most important of all TAKE ACTION Just do IT!

Read that again, and think, is this you?

You want to take action, you want to know everything about the company, you research on the Web, you learn about the products   you don't want to embarrass yourself

You are so busy getting ready to get ready that you end up not Taking Action


In order to be successful at anything you do, you need to be passionate about it.

Yes, you will make mistakes, so what?   People will respect your passion.

So after all this, if you are motivated, driven, have goals, a strong work ethic and are
NOT CONTENT with remaining where you are in life, let's do something about it together.
