An easy way to send your metabolism soaring: Trade vegetable oil for medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. Vegetable oil promotes the formation of advanced glycation end products, rogue molecules that speed aging and the stockpiling of extra pounds. But MCT oil can help you look and feel younger by improving blood sugar, ending cravings, lifting brain fog and boosting metabolism. In fact, Columbia University scientists found that women in their 50s who incorporated MCT oil into their daily diet lost 600% more belly fat than those who didn’t.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
