• On this page, you will hopefully find information on:

  • what to eat, how to eat, and when to eat.

  • And natural sources for amino acids (bottom of page)

Please note:

Nutrition:

After careful consideration, and a lot of research, I concluded that, if the following items were taken regularly, then the daily content of Vitamins, Minerals and Proteins can be achieved.  However, this is a guide line only, and must not be trusted 100%.  You are all free to your own opinion.

Carrots

Yellow Vegetables

Peanuts

Peas

Fish

Beef

Cheese

Potatoes

Almonds

6-8 Glasses of Water per day.

The above information is extracted from the journals in this website.  And should be used as a reference only.  If you use all the above contents somewhere or the other, within your diet, then you should be better off.

Children are often told by their parents: “You have to eat everything on your plate if you want to grow big and strong!”.  This sentence has some basis of truth in it.  Food does influence your growth.

Your can find hundreds of books that teach the subject of nutrition in depth.  But in this chapter, I will limit myself to the main substances necessary for growth:  The proteins , vitamins and minerals.  It would be wise to note that the last word on nutrition has not yet been written.

1. Elements Which Help You Grow

PROTEINS.

Proteins are essential for growth because it is required for cartilage tissues and bones.  Proteins are a nutritious substance, composed of twenty-two (22) amino acids.  Fourteen (14) of these produced by our own organism.  The others must be supplied SIMULTANEOUSLY to our body.  Here is the list of some of them:

(1) Tryptophane (considered to be a soporific or sleep inducing)

(2) Leucine

(3) Isoleucine

(4) Lysine

(5) Valine

SOURCES FOR CALCIUM:

Apricots, celery, lemon, cabbage, endives, spinach, figs, halibut. Cheese, sweet-lime, blackberries, onions, oranges, prunes, radishes, salmon, bran, yoghurt, etc.

PHOSPHORUS is necessary for bones.

SOURCES FOR PHOSPHORUS:

Garlic, lamb, almonds, asparagus, carrots, celery, cereals, mushrooms, crustaceans, cabbage, cucumbers, squash, spinach, figs, cheese, wheat germ, milk, corn, turnips, nuts, eggs, onions, parsnips, leeks, peas, fish, prunes, raisins, bran, tomatoes, etc.

Apricots, almonds, asparagus, beets, wheat, cereals, cabbage, watercress, dates, spinach, strawberries, lettuce, lentils, molasses, potatoes, blackberries, hazel-nuts, eggs, onions, parsley, prunes, currants, roast veal, tomatoes, etc.

COPPER develops your bones

SOURCES FOR COPPER:

Banana’s whole cereals, mushrooms, dates, eggs, etc.

MAGNESIUM is another necessary mineral for growth

SOURCES FOR MAGNESIUM:

Almonds, banana’s, beets, carrots, cerely, mushrooms, cabbage, dates, spinach, black figs, raspberries, roquefort cheese, wheat germ, green beans, milk, lettuce, corn, honey, onions, oranges, grapefruit, , peaches, dandelions, pears, pollen, prunes, apples, radishes, dried raisins, greens, etc.

ZINC also influences growth.

IODINE is needed for the thyroid gland.

SOURCES FOR IODINE:

Sea-weed, pineapple, asparagus, carrots, mushrooms, cabbage, watercress, crustaceans, spinach, strawberries, lettuce, onions, turnips, potato peelings, peas, fish, radishes, tomatoes, etc.

PROTEINS, VITAMINS, and MINERALS are very important for the development of your body and its good health.  Make sure you aren’t missing any.

2. Saying “NO!”

  • Know how to say ‘NO’ to self destructive drugs.

  • Know how to say ‘NO’ to intoxicating alcohol

  • Know how to say ‘NO’ to poisonous cigaretters.

Personally, I have never smoked.  I became interested in physical culture at the age of twelve, so I read a lot of Ben Weider’s articles, which warned against the use of tobacco.  He convinced me never to start smoking .  In all honesty, when someone offers me a cigarette, its as if that person were asking me to eat a mouse, or a worm, or a spider…

I believe that factual information about drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes avoid criticism and errors in judgement.  Young people especially must be warned and well informed. Donald Pollock, an ex-con, alcoholic and drug addict tells us;

“The biggest crime ever committed against me was that everyone always protected me from the truth”. (From Call Me a Good Theif)

Don’t waste your money or your health on drugs, alcohol or cigarettes.  Invest your money on nutritious foods or good quality food supplements.

  • Say ‘YES’ to healthy living.
  • Say ‘YES’ to natural products which provide, health, strength, endurance, energy, and all round well-being.
  • Say ‘YES’ to pollen, sea-weed, wheat germs, etc.
