    Diets for diebetics – read this to learn more

    Are diabetics supposed to stick to diets different to other people?

    Not really. Yes, they may face challenges due to their bodies’ lack of ability to produce insulin, but it is possible to eat a normal, balanced diet – one that controls blood sugar levels, which reduces the need for top-up insulin.

    The problem is that diabetics are bombarded with -diabetes safe foods’ which are mostly packed with unhealthy sweeteners, artificial flavours and pure junk.

    How should diabetics go about planning their diet then?

    Short answer: The same rules really apply to diabetics and non diabetics alike: Start with low GI foods, make sure your meals contain plenty essential proteins; add food with a high biological value (containing all essential amino acids), complex carbs and plenty of fresh vegetables

    The aim is reducing the body’s need for insulin, through eating less food containing refined carbohydrates and sugars. No-one needs these sugars, whether you suffer from diabetes or not. It is not a food and has NO nutritional value, it contains empty, unnecessary calories – we can obtain more than enough energy from foods not laden with sugars

    What do others say?

    I recently read an interesting article published in a South African medical journal by Prof Pankaj Joshi, director of Diabetes Care Centre in Pretoria, South Africa. The medical profession, according to Prof Joshi, is guilty of conveying mixed messages relating to losing weight and healthy living. One example he mentions is that unhealthy lunches are frequently served at world-wide diabetes seminars.

    I quote: -If medical professionals and health workers are not committed to the ideas that they propagate to patients, and if our hearts are not in it, then it is

Even non sports stars are embracing the bracelets to bring balance and calm to a hectic modern lifestyle.

    Magnetic Sports bracelets are understood to balance the ions in your body which in turn means nothing can interfere with your best performance. Made of a band of silicone inset with magnets or holograms, the bracelets emit negative ions balancing the over exposure to positive ions that surround us in our every day environment. Positive ions come from mobile phones, cars and modern technology. Negative ions come from trees, water and nature. Bodies that lack negative ions are unable to perform to their best capability.

    Sports bracelets are designed to resonate with and respond to energy fields in the body balancing the ions so that your perfect balance of focus, concentration, stamina and flexibility is achieved and you can reach the top of your game.

    Un-magnetised sports bracelets are often used for charity campaigns and ID such as the yellow Nike sports bracelet for the Lance Armstrong ‘LiveStrong’ campaign.

    Ayres Hotels is a family collection of European Boutique Hotels located throughout southern California, setting a new standard in comfortable, inviting accommodations and warm, personalized service for business and leisure travelers at an affordable price. Since 1985, business and leisure travelers alike have experienced the comfortable elegance, rich amenities and attention to detail that are hallmarks of every Ayres Family European-style hotel. Anticipating the customers every need, Ayres offers the very best locations, impeccable service and creature comforts like living room-style lobbies that make its properties seem more like homes than hotels.

The goal was to make its fitness offering a more contemporary and higher-quality experience, and be consistent across each of its Southern California-area locations.

    Ayres previous fitness centers had been simplistic, with little emphasis on the unique nuances of design, spatial layout and equipment selection that is inherent to a safe and efficient fitness environment. The existing fitness rooms were not devoted fitness “environments” but simply guest rooms converted to house a selection of basic fitness equipment.

    With the hotels targeting overnight business travelers, improvements to their fitness facilities would only increase traffic and general use and revenue potential for the hotel.

    Before any new equipment was brought in, AFP reviewed the fitness rooms across all 18 of Ayres current Southern California locations to develop a consistent streamlined look for each of them. AFP then provided Ayres with a fitness center layout plan and recommendations on the types of commercial exercise equipment that would work best within the available space. Finally, AFP suggested alternate locations to relocate the fitness rooms altogether where it made sense to do so.
