Break Free of Broken Resolutions

The New Year has arrived and with it a myriad of resolutions, many focused on improving one’s diet. However, by the middle of February, the resolution list can be found in the refuse, next to the Twinkie and potato chip wrappers. Resolutions are a part of the human experience, part of the life cycle to be continued every year, but one destined to fail. They fail because there is a failure in the resolutions to plan for the rest of the year. It is easy to stay on the diet from January to mid-February. However, once the newness of the recently set goals wears off, and business and social engagements rise to a maddening crescendo, it’s back to the habits of last year. Sadly, this happens every year.

Why Is Hot Food Important?

Hot food is important because it changes the food we eat. It has both historical and current significance.

The heat created during cooking is an agent of a chemical process called denaturation which changes the proteins in food, unravelling the molecules and altering their physical and chemical properties. Depending on the proteins cooked, this causes them to decrease solubility or to cause hydrophobic proteins to bond together to reduce the total area exposed to water. Denaturation affects what food feels like, tastes like, looks like and smells like. A fried egg quite clearly shows denaturation and is a good example – the runny, clear egg white (albumen) reaches a set consistency and turns opaque white when heated. As with many denatured proteins, the process cannot be reversed, i.e. you cannot go back to raw egg once it has cooled down.

How can diabetes affect hair loss? The fact is it really isn’t a matter of hair loss as much as it is a lack of hair replacement. The average human loses hair every day and will replace the hair at almost the same rate as they fall out. But diabetics do not replenish their hair follicles as quickly as they are falling out, giving the individual the impression they are actually losing their hair… even balding.
