Vitamin D is Essential

Vitamin D: Essential for Health and Proper Weight.

We will explore the 3 reasons why most Americans are deficient in vitamin D and the 5 things you must do to raise your vitamin D to healthy levels.

Healthy levels of vitamin D help us fight disease by increasing calcium absorption, by protecting bone, and improving muscle function including your heart. Healthy vitamin D levels also help boost weight loss by being an essential part of a healthy metabolism that can burn fat as needed. Vitamin D also helps to prevent depression. Some of the best food sources a vitamin D would be fatty fish. It is estimated that over 1 billion people worldwide are deficient in vitamin D and the World Health Organization has claimed that if every person on the planet consumed just 1000 international units of vitamin D each day, the mortality age would increase by two years per person.

The Benefits of Healthy & Delicious Dark Cocoa or Chocolate

Dr. Hoody's Rule of 3s

Doctor Hoody’s Secret Diet to Survive the Modern World – The Rule of Threes

We have access to food 24 hours a day, which humans have never had. The result has been detrimental to our health. For the first time in human history more of us die from obesity than starvation.

Our diets must be reimagined. A diet that enables the body to build, rebuild and adapt in a healthy way is not the diet that most of us eat. Yet there is a simple guideline to follow for a healthy diet that will help us meet the challenges of today. It is my The Rule of Threes.

If we do nothing else but adopt my Rule of Threes, we can change the trajectory of humanity towards a healthier, happier, and active lifestyle. My Rule of Three Diet simply consists of 3 times more vegetables than proteins, and 3 times more protein than grains (including root vegetables). This is a diet that doesn’t require counting calories or relying on supplements. It is easy and will reset your metabolism and help you lose weight.
