What if I told you there’s a diet on the market that could drastically change the way you look, feel and perform on a daily basis, would you be interested in learning about it?

Ketones are produced in the liver which is…

How To Lose Weight Without Exercise Or Starving Yourself

It’s that time of the year when we bid farewell to 2017 and welcome 2018 with open arms. If you’re part of the holiday crowd, I wouldn’t be surprised if you packed on a few pounds because it’s extremely difficult to eat healthily during the festive season. Let’s not waste precious time and energy hating ourselves for over indulging because what’s done is done and we should be focusing our energy towards is undoing the damage of the holiday binges. The great things about weight gain is that it can be reversed as soon as you make the decision to lose weight but in today’s article, I want to explore a system on how to lose weight without exercise or starving yourself. Perhaps you’re suffering from an injury, a chronic inflammatory disease, mobility issues or whatever it may, I want to share some of my opinions and insight on how…

6 Tips On How To Improve Your Child’s Health

Over the course of the last month, I decided to dig into the health of infants and young children in hopes of preparing myself for the day I have a little one of my own. The last thing I want for my child is to be exposed to the health conditions I experienced throughout my life. My parents did a wonderful job of taking care of me to the best of their abilities but what they couldn’t have foreseen was that food would play a vital role in destroying my health from the inside out. Bread, sugar, gluten and vegetable oil, these things played a massive role in how my health plummeted in my late teens and early 20’s. Two decades ago, my parent’s generation didn’t have access to the wealth of information the internet now has to offer. Although books were available, not even doctors were well equipped with…

What Is Flexible Dieting And Does It Work?

Every few years a brand new craze hits the market and people flock towards it in hopes of losing their belly and revealing a sexy six-pack. A few years ago, the paleo diet was the new craze and now it’s split between the ketogenic diet and flexible eating. Over here at Servedhealthy, our goal is to produce content that promotes health. I don’t advocate crash diets even though I’ve written about them. I’m not the kind of person who will shoot down a diet for no reason, especially if it provides great results for people. What I do have a problem with is diets that are dangerous, specifically starvation diets. However, it’s not every day that I encounter a diet where starvation isn’t even a factor anymore, on the contrary, there are little to no restrictions on flexible dieting and it piqued my interest! Without further ado, let’s dig into…

How To Lose 10 Pounds In A Week Without Killing Yourself

What if I told you that it was indeed possible to lose 10 pounds in a week, would you believe me?  It can be done. And no, there’s absolutely no magic pill that’s going to shed pounds for you. What I’m about to propose is an extreme way to lose up to 10 pounds in a week. Ordinarily, I would advise people to approacwh weight loss as a 6-month long journey because, in reality, 1 – 2 pounds of weight loss per week is usually the correct amount. But, perhaps you have an important event coming up within a week and you were unable to stick to your weight loss plans but still, you need to drop those unwanted pounds asap. In which case, this protocol will most likely work but I want you to be warned that it is extreme and I don’t believe it’s something people can maintain…

9 Foods That Cause And Worsen Leaky Gut

Over the course of 3 years, I have studied and learned as much as I possibly could about leaky gut because of how it affected my life. Ever since being diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses (autoimmune diseases like psoriatic arthritis), I’ve made myself more conscious and aware of how my gut affects the rest of my body. One of the leading causes of leaky gut (which is a condition known as intestinal permeability wherein the lining of the stomach develops small holes allowing food particles and more to seep into your bloodstream) is a bad diet. It shocks me how uninformed people are about food. We are led to believe that our bodies are capable of consuming and digesting any kind of foods available but that is far from the truth. Genetic modification has vastly altered the structure of foods we consumed for centuries. Pesticides and chemicals that are aimed…

They taste great but they are destructive to our health and well being. Ever since starting this blog, I’ve been experimenting with different food choices and recording how my body reacts to them.

The Simplest Guide To Good Carbs Vs Bad Carbs

Talking about carbohydrates these days is as good as placing a giant red X on my back because this topic can get really hot and hectic. But, I’m going to take my shot at it with the hopes of setting you up with something worth thinking about. Carbs get a bad rap in the fitness and diet world. I won’t say that I completely agree with the ideas and arguments presented by the groups of people who believe carbs are completely bad for you but I do see some concerning things about this food group. Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment, the carbs we consume from traditional stores and enterprises are not what they used to be. Genetic modification, new farming methods, pesticides and chemicals, added fillers and preservatives have completely changed the makeup and status of modern day grains which are used to as the main ingredients…
