A Calorie Burning Drink That Gives you Energy and Focus

If someone told me that a drink that gives me focus, I would’ve been like yeah I already heard about it, Red Bull or Monster.  I’d probably think it’s pure bull.  But I never thought there was a drink made for calorie burning that gives me focus.

So what happened was I was walking by the water bottle isle in Jewel-Osco in Chicago and I saw a drink that was not hyped up, however it looks as if a lot of people bought it because there were few cans left.  The drink is called Aspire.  After drinking 1 can I noticed my mind is a bit calm and I was able to focus on my studies.  It doesn’t act like a stimulant, the feeling is subtle.
Now I don’t know if it burns calories like it claims; however it surely does something.  It has two factors that research shows that do burn calories: L-Carnitine and Green Tea Extract. 

I was curious of their claim and they decided to give a 2-weeks challenge of drinking two cans a day.  Their Try it and let me know what you experience.

Why Halal and Kosher Meat is Medically Healthy for You

For most of you, you may not know what is Kosher or Halal meat.  The Jewish people call it kosher and the Muslims call it Halal, but they prepare meat about the same way. It is a fact that the quality of meat from being slaughtered for halal or kosher certification is far better than your traditional mainstream meat.  If you watch the movie Food, Inc., it’ll give you a visual explanation of how bad the meat in America has gotten with inhumane practice of slaughtering the animals. The same practice is probably conducted in parts of Europe and China as well, but I’m not quite sure about that so, don’t quote me on that.
What’s So Special About Halal/Kosher Meat
Imagine you are going to get some blood tests done. A doctor will initially ask for a blood test when they are evaluating the status of your health. Why the blood test you may ask? For us doctors, we know that the blood carries the toxins, cholesterol, diseases, ions, etc.  Blood measurements can give tremendous amount of health information in humans. The same goes for animals as well.  Halal/Kosher meats must have its blood drained in order for the the meat to be certified. Also the animals must be healthy, not be diseased, not contaminated, and it cannot be partially eaten by other animals. 
Halal/Kosher Meat Are Slaughtered in Humane Way
When slaughtering the animal, it must be done the most humane way, as in it must be done with the most minimum pain possible.  This is done by swiftly cutting arteries of the neck. Opposition ignorant people claim it’s not humane, but as a doctor I can tell you that it is the best method based on my studies. In mainstream American slaughter houses, the animal is usually beaten to death or and electrical rod is jabbed into their skulls to kills them; that’s not humane. If you think it through, when you cut of the blood supply to the brain in any mammals, the animal will loose consciousness, because the brain needs constant blood supply in order to function.  Think about it, when a human goes into cardiac arrest, we do CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) to save the person, we press against the chest to manually pump blood to the brain, because our goal is to preserve the brain initially. The same concept applies to chickens or beef or goat; cutting off their brain’s blood supply leads to them loosing the feeling of pain.

Educate Yourself 
The health industry in our once beloved America is not as clean as you may think. Corporate greed has taken over without the health risk considerations. With wide practice of injecting hormones in animals to grow bigger and fatter and fast, has unlimited potential harm to us humans who consume it. Before you go to fast food restaurants, find out where they get their meat from.  Meats mau not cause any harm right away other than a one-way trip to the bathroom, but in the long-term, it will debilitate your health when you are older.

Remember Who You Are

As you we progress to reach our goal to be a medical doctor, we may be given a lot of things that we wouldn’t receive if we were not doctors. I hear stories of doctors being snobby and acting as if they are the center of the world; well, I’m against that. Honestly, I don’t really feel as if I’m all that despite of all the obstacles I’ve overcome to be where I am. I’m writing this post because when you reach near the end or at the end, you will be given a lot of priority and a lot of attention, and for that don’t let it get to your head.
I remember when I and a bunch of my boys and their wives and girl friends decided to go to the theater. They all sat down and I ended up with a seat at the end. I like sitting in the middle because it’s comfortable so I went the row behind them. They insisted that I sit on the same row as them but I was stubborn and I sat in the middle of the row behind them. So one of the guys got everyone up and got them to sit in the same row as me. His wife got up and told me, “you know we’re only doing this because you’re a doctor”. That was not my intention and nor did I want them to do that, but that’s society.
When you are making that 6-figure salary or more, just remember these points:
  • Be humble, don’t be arrogant
  • Be grateful
  • Always remember the people who helped you, such as your parents, siblings, and friends
  • Always try to help others
  • Don’t be too flashy with superficial stuff
  • Be generous; give a descent amount of charity because you are in a better place than most people in the world
  • Treat everyone with respect regardless of how they look or what they own or where they come from
  • Be open-minded and tolerable to everyone
Unfortunately, society is very biased on how you dress or what car you drive, because your appearance and what you have seems to define your worth. This is an inspirational video of how society sees you:
Moral of the story and the video, don’t like the woman in the black dress. Treat others with respect regardless if they are a plumber or a janitor, because everyone matters.
