Fwd: Dr. Oz on eating fruit!!!! and three habits of successful people

Three Simple Habits of Remarkably Efficient People

Anyone else out there have a “to-do” list longer than the circumference of their home? I used to have one just like that, too.

Here’s the good news—it’s not about getting it all done. Truly. It is about strategically getting the most effective items done that will yield the best results. As Pirkei Avot (2:16) teaches, Lo alecha ha-melachah ligmor—it’s really not about finishing all the work, but about doing our part.

Many of us want to have magic time-management makeovers that will make us become 100% efficient overnight. You would be totally forgiven if you thought you also needed to revamp and track your every action. Don’t worry: in reality, if you can implement a few key items, you can really increase your productivity.

If you can implement a few key items, you can really increase your productivity

These cherry-picked tips are tried and tested to give you a quick route to über-efficiency. By incorporating the following tips, you can turn your productivity on its head and join the ranks of the relaxed and efficient.

1. Write it Down!

You will thank me profusely for this one, and when I take the time (most days) to do this, I thank myself too. Here’s the trick: Write down the 5–8 tasks you must get done the following day. Use a fresh sheet in your notepad, the notepad on your iPhone, or stick a Post-It note on your forehead. Bottom line, à la Peter Drucker: “What gets measured, gets managed.”

2. Leverage Your Work Time

The creator of Dilbert once commented that he is an early bird and gets the bulk of his work done between 5 AM and 8 AM, and his creativity would be seriously stifled if he had to work around any other schedule.

Figure out when you get your best work done, and leverage the bulk of your work around that time. As the saying goes, “It’s so easy when I want to, and so hard when I have to.” Stop working around someone else’s schedule, and be the master of your own efficiency.

3. “Next Step” Homework

Often, after interacting with people via e‑mail, text, phone, or even (shock, horror!) in person, there is a “next step” that needs to be taken care of. It can be anything from scheduling a coffee meeting on Tuesday, e‑mailing them your latest blog post, ordering a book they had recommended, writing them a thank-you note, or any other type of “homework.” Don’t be tempted to remember it “later.” Write it down right away, or if it can be done in two minutes or less, take care of business right then and there. Yes, I am Take care of business right then and therechallenging you to order a new book from Amazon, enter a coffee date into your Google calendar, and send a thank-you text in two minutes or less.

By incorporating these three habits into your everyday life, you will notice more efficient living and less “stuff” falling through the cracks. Instantly. Thank me later; first write down the “next step” homework from that phone meeting you just had. 

Wow. This is truly enlightening.
I thought it was going to be funny.

But there are some very interesting healthy facts

included here.

This is informative!


We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and popping it into our mouths. It's not that easy. It's important to know how and when to eat fruit.
Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

 Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so.

 In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.
Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas. Hence, you bloat!
There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT the concentrated juice from the cans. Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't get the nutrients at all. You get only the taste. Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.
Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how radiant you look!
KIWI: Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E and fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!

AN APPLE a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants and flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attack and stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits and protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

EATING 2 - 4 ORANGES a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent and dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant. Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C and Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your eyes.

 Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!

 Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed, which slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

 A serious note about heart attacks.


 Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they're asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Be careful, and be aware. The more we know, the better our chance to survive.

A cardiologist said if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.

It can even be your life!
"Life is a gift-Unwrap it".
