Delta Children's Heart Disease Risk

A growing number of BC children are developing high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and type 2 diabetes which are all risk factors for heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, there is credible evidence that cholesterol buildup in arteries begins in childhood.

A recent Australian study claims that lifestyle changes made before adulthood, such as healthy eating habits, exercise, and weight management are likely to reduce the risk for heart disease later in life.

The three main risk factors for Vancouver children in developing high cholesterol are heredity, diet, and obesity. Visit with your Vancouver doctor to have your own cholesterol checked to make sure your kids aren’t at risk.

When shopping at your Vancouver grocery store, stock up on healthy snacks like nuts, dried fruit, and yogurt. Helping Vancouver kids and Richmond make healthy lifestyle choices now prepares them to have healthy lifestyles as adults.

As a health and wellness business owner and Delta children’s advocate, I would love to share more information about children’s nutrition and healthy snacking. Please call or email me today.

Vancouver Chocolate Milkshake Diet I love the taste of the Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, however, sometimes I like to mix things up a bit and try new flavors. In Vancouver, I use the Xocai weight loss shake as a base for making healthy high-antioxidant Delta diet smoothies. You can download additional Xocai ProteinMeal recipes from the MXI Chocolate website.

Here are some of the Weight Loss Smoothie recipes and my local Delta Xocai chocolate shake review. Each recipe needs to be blended thoroughly in a blender or food processor.

The Xo and Tell: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup X ProteinMeal Shake, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup chopped ice. Tastes like a seven dollar Delta juice bar smoothie but much healthier.

X Mocha Frappe: 1 cup cold black coffee, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, 1 cup chopped ice, 2 fresh mint leaves. Surrey coffee lovers will enjoy this high antioxidant version. The mint gives it an interesting twist.

The X Monkey: 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup Xocai ProteinMeal Shake, 1 TB chunky peanut butter, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup chopped ice. If you are a Delta PB fan, you’ll this concoction. You can find Vancouver almond milk at Langley health food stores or at Richmond grocery stores with large health food sections.

The Chocolate Orange Cream-sicle: 6 ounces water, 1/2 cup MXI Chocolate ProteinMeal Shake, 2 ounces almond milk, 1 banana, 1 cup chopped ice, 2 drops orange essential oil. Tastes like a Vancouver Roxberry Orange Creamsicle smoothie. This flavor made me very nostalgic–I used to live on creamsicles all summer long as a child. The banana boosts the potassium content.

Xo-Good: 1/2 cup water, 1/2 orange juice, 4 chunks frozen mango, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup Xocai Weight Loss Shake. If you are a Delta mango freak, you will find this mango-licious.

Give me a call if you are interested in losing weight without feeling empty or hungry. The Xocai Protein Shake is a terrific way to do it!

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them — Walt Disney!

Richmond Low Start-Up Cost Business The Vancouver health industry includes Delta doctors, Richmond hospitals, health insurance providers, drug companies and Langley pharmacies. The BC medical community focuses mainly on treating illnesses after they are diagnosed.

For example, Delta oncologists administer chemo and radiation treatment to Richmond cancer patients, Surrey primary care doctors write prescriptions for antibiotics, Langley cardiologists prescribe beta-blockers for patients with high blood pressure, and Vancouver endocrinologists treat diabetics.

The BC health and wellness market is a related industry with an important difference. The health and wellness industry aims to prevent illness and disease.

The best selling health and wellness products/services in Vancouver are nutritional supplements, chiropractic care, osteopathic doctors, holistic health services, and exercise facilities.

The Vancouver health and wellness industry has experienced significant growth in the past few years, despite the global recession. Part of the reason is directly related to the weak BC economy. When Delta people lose their jobs, they lose their health insurance and COBRA premiums are often too expensive. Even insured Richmond people have less money to pay co-pays. A lot of Surrey people use health and wellness products in an effort to avoid expensive Langley professional medical care.

The Xocai Healthy Chocolate business opportunity is one of the easiest and quickest ways to profit from the booming Delta health and wellness industry. Xocai antioxidant chocolate helps prevent illness; no prescription required.

With minimal start-up costs, you can own your own home-based Vancouver business. If you have never been a small business owner/operator, don’t worry. I can show you how to succeed with MXI healthy chocolate.

Since most everyone already buys chocolate regularly, all you need to do is introduce people to Xocai antioxidant dark chocolate.

They readily understand the importance of replacing the bad chocolate with the good Xocai chocolate. Educating prospects about the health benefits is easy; you are more of a consultant than a salesperson.

During tough economic times, take control by creating your own Delta job. A Vancouver Xocai healthy chocolate business provides financial reward, a flexible schedule, and the satisfaction of helping people improve their health. (Another sweet fringe benefit is that you get paid to eat chocolate!)

      Fish Oil or Chocolate For Delta BC?

         Posted by: Phil

      Delta Xocai Chocolate Omega 3 has been the subject of considerable attention in the Vancouver medical community in the past few years.

      “It not only plays a vital role in the health of the membrane of every cell in our body, it also helps protect us from a number of key health threats” says Laurie Tansman, a nutritionist at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.

      Because our bodies cannot manufacture Omega 3, we have to get it from the foods we eat in Richmond. Gleaning enough Omega 3 from the average Surrey diet is difficult and there is another tricky challenge to the Omega 3 dilemma; maintaining the proper balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6. These essential fatty acids work in tandem to perform important physiological functions and guard against many chronic conditions.

      Vancouver dietitians recommend a ratio of 4 parts Omega 3 to 1 part Omega 6. The typical Langley diet contains 20 times more Omega 6 than Omega 3! Clearly, most Richmond people have a long way to go to correct the imbalance.

      If your great-grandmother gave each of her children a spoonful of cod liver oil every day, she instinctively understood the critical necessity of Omega 3. If you want your Richmond family to get enough Omega 3, you could give them fish oil in liquid or capsules (-Keep a few tins of Altoids on hand) or, you could give them Xocai Chocolate Omega Squares.

      Xocai Omega Squares have 200mg of DHA and EPA per three 11 gram squares. If you enjoy Richmond Xocai Chocolate Omega Squares daily, you will eventually correct the Omega 3-Omega 6 imbalance in your body.

      The following information about Omega 3 is from the Harvard School of Public Health:

      “Omega 3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

      I am Phil Hoskins, an independent Xocai Chocolate distributor. Call me at 604.943.8598 if you would you like to join me for some Xocai healthy chocolate,… or fish oil; your choice. 😉

      Vancouver MLM Secrets Are you trying to lose weight in Richmond or Langley? Have you tried Vancouver Weight Watchers, Delta HCG, and Surrey Jenny Craig?

      Do any of those weight-loss plans advise eating chocolate every day? Did I hear you say; “Now we’re talking?”

      Hundreds of people have lost weight on the Delta Xocai chocolate diet. The Xocai chocolate weight-loss plan is simple:

      • Replace 2 meals with X-ProteinMeal Shake (A delicious, filling chocolate shake.)
      • Eat one sensible meal
      • Eat 2-4 X Power Squares (solid chocolate)
      • Exercise 3-5 times per week

      No tasteless dehydrated diet meals, no ‘points’, no ‘pregnant woman hormones’. If HCG tasted like chocolate, perhaps Langley dieters wouldn’t need to inject it.

      The Richmond Xocai plan utilizes your chocolate habit as a weight loss tool. (If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!)

      With Xocai antioxidant chocolate, your Langley weight loss success depends upon you maintaining your regular chocolate consumption. That’s the beauty of the Richmond Xocai chocolate diet!

      Delta Probiotics for Lactose Intolerant People in Delta may be amazed, but it’s true that our gastrointestinal tract is home to hundreds of different types of bacteria, each of which is constantly trying to divide and conquer.

      The ‘good’ bacteria help us absorb nutrients from the food we eat. The ‘bad’ bacteria trigger a variety of intestinal miseries like constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, heartburn, stomach ulcers and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

      IBS is a common ailment among Richmond women and men and a leading cause of workplace absenteeism.

      Bacterial imbalances in Vancouver adults are also linked to conditions such as allergies, depression, fibromyalgia, and chronic yeast infections.

      Probiotics are the key to a healthy GI tract for Delta people concerned about intestinal health. Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria that are able to survive the stomach acids and bile salts on their way to the intestines where they can grow and devour the ‘bad’ bacteria. There are relatively few foods that can successfully deliver probiotics to the intestines; aged cheeses, live-culture yogurt, kefir (a beverage consisting of fermented milk and kefir grains), and miso are some of them.

      MXI Corp, producers of Delta Xocai chocolate have developed the most effective probiotic delivery system; Xocai healthy chocolate. An 11 gram Xocai XoBiotic Square delivers one billion friendly microorganisms to the GI tract.

      Xocai XoBiotic Squares are one of the only probiotic foods that can be eaten by Surrey people who suffer from lactose intolerance.

      Many Richmond people who have started eating Xocai XoBiotic Squares not only have noticed improvement in their digestion, they feel more energetic and seem to be more resistant to catching colds.

      I am Delta Xocai distributor Phil Hoskins. If you are suffering from health problems that have eluded diagnosis and successful treatment, I suggest you try Xocai XoBiotic Squares. Xocai XoBiotic Squares the most delicious way to maintain GI health. To order Xocai XoBiotic Squares or any other Xocai antioxidant chocolate product, call 604.943.8598.

        Delta Weight-Loss Shake Folks in Delta may only think about fiber when they are feeling constipated. Keeping you regular is one of the benefits of a high-fiber diet, but not the only one.

        Fiber is important for heart health. Vancouver area people who eat a high-fiber diet are less likely to have high cholesterol levels. Numerous studies has shown the link between fiber and LDL levels. Check out the Nutrition Journal for information on one of the studies.

        An increase in fiber consumption can help Langley folks who want to lose weight. Richmond high-fiber meals have lower calorie-volume ratios; in other words, a high-fiber meal is more satisfying and you feel full longer. The Mayo Clinic says dietary fiber is essential for a healthy diet.

        Richmond and Surrey diabetics can benefit from a high-fiber diet according to the Mayo Clinic article; fiber can slow the absorption of sugar, which can improve blood sugar levels.

        The majority of Vancouver people do not get enough fiber in their diets. Highly-processed white flour products, convenience foods and fast food meals have very little fiber. It takes time effort to locate and purchase Langley fiber rich foods.

        The American Dietetic Association reports that most of us don’t even come close to the recommended intake of 20 grams to 35 grams of fiber a day.

        The Xocai X Protein Meal Shake and Activ Beverage are two delicious sources of fiber. The Xocai X Protein Meal Shake has 8 grams of fiber per serving. Xocai Activ provides 28 percent of the daily recommended value for dietary fiber.
