18 dicas para melhorar a sua alimentação

 

Alimentacao metododerose antas
 
  1. Não misture sal com açúcar na mesma refeição. Portanto, nada de sobremesas.
  2. De preferência, não use nem o sal nem o açúcar. Procure reduzir esses dois impostores. A redução drástica do sal ajuda muito o aumento de flexibilidade. O sal também torna a pessoa menos sensível, cortando as percepções sutis.
  3. Não misture alho com cebola, nem em pratos diferentes, na mesma refeição.
  4. Não misture frutas ácidas com frutas doces.
  5. Não tome líquidos às refeições. Só meia hora antes ou meia hora depois. (Quando convidados a comer, os índios guaranis da Argentina, costumam responder: “Obrigado. Já bebi.”) Longe das refeições, beber muita água mineral.
  6. Faça rodízio das marcas de água mineral.
  7. Use água mineral até para chás e para cozinhar os alimentos.
  8. Não jogue fora a água que sobrar da cozedura de legumes. Ela é rica em sais minerais e pode ser usada para cozinhar outra coisa como, por exemplo, o arroz. Além da vantagem nutricional, o outro prato fica mais saboroso.
  9. Restrinja o uso de maioneses, ovos, natas, manteiga e gorduras de origem animal e outras que fiquem em estado sólido sob temperatura ambiente.
  10. Em algumas receitas, as natas podem ser substituído por yoghurt; noutras, por pasta de gergelim (tahine).
  11. Reduza os laticínios ao mínimo possível.
  12. A manteiga, quase sempre, pode ser substituída por azeite de oliva extra-virgem, extração mecânica, a frio.
  13. O estado do seu prato pode indicar o grau de limpeza ou sujeira que a comida produziu no seu organismo. Se o prato estiver tão limpo que não precise ser lavado, seu corpo também o estará. Se o seu prato precisar de detergente e água quente para ficar limpo, imagine o estado dos seus órgãos internos após digeri-la.
  14. Adote especiarias, pois além de realçar o sabor ajudam a digestão, auxiliam a processar gorduras, beneficiam o fígado, vesícula, intestinos, dão vitalidade, aumentam a energia sexual e tonificam todo o organismo. São elas: gengibre, cravo, canela, orégano, cominho, tomilho, açafrão, coentro, caril, noz moscada, cardamomo, manjerona, manjericão, salsa e cebolinha, alho ou cebola e mais umas quarenta variedades que se encontram com relativa facilidade nos supermercados.
  15. Adote fibras, alimentos integrais, levedura de cerveja, ginseng, alho. Cuidado para não brindar seus amigos com o bafo de alho. A melhor coisa é engolir cápsulas de óleo de alho ou dentes inteiros de alho à noite, antes de dormir. Assim, pela manhã você já processou e eliminou uma boa parte do “odor-afugenta-parceiro”. Aí, escove os dentes, tome um banho, coma alguma coisa e, para garantir, saia de casa mascando cravo!
  16. Elimine urgentemente as panelas de alumínio. Adote as de vidro, ferro, aço, ágata, barro, pedra, etc. Evite as películas anti-aderentes: há uma séria suspeita de que sejam cancerígenas.
  17. Olhe e veja o alimento. Não o ingira lendo ou distraindo-se com outra coisa. Você vai notar que o alimento passará a dar mais prazer e satisfará mais com menos quantidade.
  18. A monodieta é curativa e faz perder peso. Consiste em comer uma coisa só. Alimentos compostos, é claro, estão fora deste conceito. Pizza, por exemplo, não é uma coisa só, pois leva uma quantidade de ingredientes. Monodieta é alimentar-se durante um dia ou alguns dias só com papaia, só com banana, só com manga, só com batata, só com arroz, etc. Não vale regar com azeite ou manteiga. Tampouco colocar pimenta e outros artifícios. É mono mesmo. Mas cuidado para não exagerar, pois é inquestionável que a monodieta deixa o corpo carente de nutrientes. É para fazer por um período curto e depois parar.
Nossa recomendação é sempre evitar o fanatismo. Mas onde fica a fronteira entre o fanatismo e a seriedade? Para dedicar-nos a alguma coisa com seriedade é preciso um coeficiente de determinação que os não-comprometidos com o mesmo ideal geralmente tacham de fanatismo. Só o bom senso de cada um poderá julgar.

Ricardo Santos no Masters de Portugal

A jogar em casa, o golfista português Ricardo Santos disse que vai fazer o possível para conseguir mais um "top 10" na VII edição do Portugal Masters, que classificou como "a melhor semana da época". "Tudo é possível. Gostaria imenso de fazer um top 10, mas, obviamente, não vou pensar nisso, nem estar a pressionar-me nesse sentido. Quero desfrutar o momento e desfrutar cada dia, cada pancada. Para mim, é a melhor semana da época", acentuou o golfista algarvio, a propósito da VII edição do maior torneio de golfe português.

Ricardo Santos, que habita "a dois minutos" do Oceânico Victoria de Vilamoura, o seu "home club", prometeu "dar o máximo para obter o melhor resultado possível", embora reconheça que o golfe tem "coisas que não se controlam". O golfista de Vilamoura admitiu existir uma "pressão acrescida" por "jogar em casa", o que pode ser positivo, se as coisas estiverem a correr bem, mas também "pode prejudicar", quando se entra mal no jogo. "Quando as coisas correm menos bem, o jogador sente-se mais pressionado. É uma coisa que temos de controlar e saber lidar com ela", sustentou o melhor jogador de todos os tempos, cuja mulher trabalha no próprio Oceânico Victoria de Vilamoura. Santos admitiu que gostaria de seguir as pisadas de Rui Costa, no ciclismo, ou de João Sousa, no ténis, e dar "um impulso" ao golfe nacional, mas recusou-se a colocar a fasquia tão alta, até porque "o futuro a Deus pertence". O "objetivo principal" já foi atingido, que era manter o cartão para continuar na primeira divisão do golfe europeu, o "European Tour". O outro é ficar classificado entre os 60 melhores golfistas da Europa para poder disputar, em novembro, o World Tour Championship do Dubai, o torneio que marca o encerramento da temporada e distribui prémios recorde de oito milhões de dólares (5,9 milhões de euros). Contudo, uma vitória no Masters do Algarve "daria um impulso enorme ao golfe português, porque o que falta é, realmente, um ídolo, uma referência para os jovens, para se perceber que o golfe não é elitista e que não é só torneios cor-de-rosa".

Na entrevista à Lusa, o melhor golfista português de sempre afiançou que os seus companheiros do Tour "estão ansiosos por vir jogar a Portugal". "(O Victoria) é um campo que não parte muito a cabeça aos jogadores, tem muitas oportunidades de birdie, tem buracos competitivos e é um campo agradável para jogar. Tem uma atmosfera bastante boa, além do clima, da gastronomia e da envolvente. Para mim, é sem dúvida a melhor semana da época", frisou. Ricardo Santos classifica o Portugal Masters como "um grande evento", para mais no seu clube, com a sua família e os seus amigos a apoiarem. "Acho que vou ter muitos portugueses a apoiarem-me e isso é muito bom para mim", concluiu o golfista português mais bem cotado da atualidade.   Lusa

Swing tempo

YOUR TEMPO MAKES CHARLES BARKLEY LOOK LIKE ERNIE ELS
"For better tempo, soften your grip pressure," says Top 100 Teacher and Golf Channel guy Michael Breed. "Imagine you're in your car holding a lidless cup of coffee. To accelerate to 60 mph without spilling the coffee, you'd hold the cup gently and accelerate gradually. This is the combination you want in your swing."

Special lag-putt technique to roll the ball closer

Dave Pelz

Angus Murray

A taller, more open address improves your depth perception and distance control so you can roll long putts this close.

Three-putting. Ugh! It’s an absolute waste of strokes, and so discouraging that it can ruin not only your scores, but also your attitude. (Ever meet a happy three-putter?) While three-putting is nearly impossible to avoid completely, especially on today’s faster greens, most amateurs do it far more often than they should. With the help of the PGA Tour’s ShotLink tracking system, the Pelz Golf Institute has found that weekend players drop a stroke by three-putting up to six times as often as professionals do (see table, below).

Even scratch amateurs three-putt more than once every 10 holes and, as you can guess, the frequency of three-putting increases with handicap. Hmmm... wonder if there’s a relationship there? If you’re a 30-handicapper, you’re literally throwing away three or four strokes every round you play.

It’s interesting to compare your three-putt percentage to that of the best players in the world. The difference is crazy! ShotLink data from this season (through the Canadian Open) tells us that PGA Tour pros three-putt an average of 2.4 times—per event! And so far this year there have been eight tournament winners who didn’t three-putt once en route to victory.

If pros can avoid three-putting, so can you, because you don’t need a ton of athletic ability to get down in two. Avoiding three-putting doesn’t even require a ton of practice. You just have to get your first putts to stop a little closer to the hole than they have in the past.

My advice is to change your approach on long lags, which amateurs typically leave too short, for an easy two-putt. Try the following two changes:

1 Stand closer to the ball and with an open stance. This allows you to look out at the putt with binocular vision, which helps with depth perception. Looking at the putt like this also frees up your motion to provide more power to the ball.

2 Putt with a chipping stroke, not a putting stroke. 
 Add a little wrist hinge both back and through. Again, this will help you avoid hitting the ball too softly and coming up short.

Next time you play, give these two lag-putt keys a try. They’ll help you drastically reduce the number of times you three-putt during a round. Strokes are precious, and avoiding three-putting is an easy way to save them.

The Right amount of Thoughts

NewImage

 

The average person has more than 2,000 thoughts per day. Champions have half that. They focus on what they want, not their fears. I may not have you hitting it like Luke Donald in two days, but I'll have you thinking like him -- like a world class player.

Wrists drill

I call it the Golf Wrist-Cock Exercise. Here's what you do:

 

  1. Stand with your arm hanging at your side. 
  2. Grab a golf club (pitching wedge if you're just beginning, long iron if you have strong wrists already) in one hand towards the end of grip.
  3. Raise the club only by cocking your wrist and keeping your arm at side.
  4. The club will have the toe pointing up to the sky straight out in front of you.
  5. Raise as high as you can, which will probably be just above parallel to the ground with your shaft.
  6. Then lower and repeat until a set of 15 repetitions is done.
  7. Switch arms and do the same thing.

     

Do one or two sets per wrist, 3-4 times per week (every other day or Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday).

If you do this exercise correctly you will get a burning sensation in your forearms. If so, that's great! If not, you may need a longer iron; or you are using more than just your wrist for the movement.

What is concentration?

What is concentration?:

What is concentration?

And what do I gain by increasing it?

According to the dictionary, concentration is to give full attention and energy to something.

Everyday I hear people say that if only they were interrupted less during their daily activities, their productivity and focus would greatly increase.

But what do I gain from increasing my concentration?

You gain increased productivity and more energy to get things done. This is because a well-trained mind makes everything easier and more efficient. You will not have to do the same things over again because you had not noticed small mistakes in the first place. Increased productivity often means more free time for you, for your children, family, sports etc …

When was the last time you trained your concentration?

Most people do not train their concentration. This is because it is still an unknown discipline and perhaps somewhat obscure to us.

But I assure you, a little dedication in your routine and you will feel your productivity soar.

There is nothing more powerful than a well-trained mind.

When you combine concentration + discipline + focus, you are unstoppable. This clearly defines those that succeed in life and those who do not. Those who haven’t this powerful tool in their hands invariably share the same self talk: “it’s because he is lucky”, “God is with him”, “it looks like he was made for it”, “the stars help” and a bunch of further excuses.

A well-trained mind produces wealth and harmony around you, driving emotional stability and happiness.

Do I need to spend 6 months in Tibet or India dressed in strange clothes?

These things described above have a name: prejudice, fantasy, myth. Increasing your ability to concentrate depends uniquely and exclusively on whether you train, engage and direct your attention to such a thing. Nothing else makes excellent exercise of concentration, as it does to keep working where you work, live where you live and with whom you live.

What does what I eat, drink and smoke have to do with my concentration?

With much experience working in this area, we can guarantee that these are things known to really “drain” your attention and your body. This happens when the body is not well maintained, with excellent maintenance, when you keep ignoring it and do not exercise it, when you keep eating poorly, drinking, and pretending that back pain has gone after all). However disciplined you are, you will not have the same productivity, as it the body hasn’t got any outlet.

A McLaren running with diesel?

Ever imagined a Formula 1 car, racing with a flat tyre, or working with diesel instead of petrol?

Yeah, your body is not much different. And, quite simply, if badly maintained, the most developed machine in this universe will yield 30, 40 and even 70% less than it should. You know what I’m talking about, when you have those days when you simply cannot concentrate. When the work does not get done. When it seems that everything is out of order for no apparent reason.

And why are you not looking at what you did during the day or days earlier – such as sleep less, eat more at dinner, inject caffeine into the body and allow stress to dominate your day.

Alcohol, the silent villain

 

This is a taboo subject in our society, wherever you go in the world the human being makes use of narcotics (from ancient Greek ναρκῶ Närko, ‘Ι benumb’), yet the body always pays a price. The seat of consciousness exists in our brain, and to receive any amount of alcohol, however small, will create alterations, causing decreased concentration and small lapses of consciousness, imperceptible to the individual, but increasing the reduction of concentration.

 

Very far from your reality?

That lapse of a few minutes lost when you had to remember those passwords or keys or mobile phone that you lost during the day, all these minutes add up to a few days of work in one year’s time. Time that you could have spent with family, friends, doing sports etc …

 

I do not want to become a ninja or a Karate Kid

Again, these myths created by Hollywood films deter people with excellent development potential, to whom it would be natural to increase concentration, gain memory and clarity of thought. And with nothing more than closing the eyes and train a simple technique of concentration for a few minutes.

 

I do not believe any of these things

 

Provided you are executing them well, the wonder of these techniques is that you do not need to believe in them. You can tell a massage therapist you do not believe in his or her techniques, but if he or she is good, the techniques will surely produce the effects. You could also say that you do not believe in anesthesia from a dentist, but I do not believe that you would undergo a dental filling without such an injection, even if you do not believe in it.


Attention is the cognitive process of selectively concentrating on one aspect of the environment while ignoring other things. Attention has also been referred to the allocation of the processing of resources.
Alcohol That is the principle given to ardent spirit and wine. Their intoxicating power, while the narcotic principle to opium and tobacco imparts similar properties. In popular language, alcohol is classed among the stimulants, and opium and tobacco among the narcotics; which substances are whose ultimate effect upon the beast system is to produce torpor and insensibility, but taken in small quantities they exhilarate at first. And since alcohol does the same, most medical writers, at the present day, class it among the narcotics.

- Edward Hitchcock, American Temperance Society (1830)
