Angie Andrade – 3 Harmful Ingredients You May Not Know About

Published

on

Did you know that the same box of cereal in the US has more harmful ingredients than the same cereal in the UK?

Based on a 2017 article published on the business insider, the United States has different health regulation rules from other countries when it comes to dangerous chemicals added to the food. Many of these ingredients have been banned and deemed illegal in Europe and are still allowed in the US. Some reasons why there are chemicals in our food are for longer shelf life, more flavor, and coloring to make your food more visually appealing.

The fact is that most of the packaged foods we eat whether they’re candies, cereal or tomato sauce could be detrimental to our health. But how bad can it be? Yes, the obvious reason for many is weight gain. But what we may not always be aware of is that the list of issues is longer than just that.

Symptoms of bad chemicals in your food can range anywhere between random headaches, digestive problems, hormonal issues, and even cancer. Yes, many of the foods you might be consuming can cause cancer. Before we start dissecting labels, know that if your cereal, cookies, or any other product you have in your kitchen or snacking pantry has more than 10 ingredients then it’s not worth the try. Also, watch out for hard to pronounce ingredients. When in doubt don’t eat it. 

Before we go into dissecting ingredients, let’s talk about junk food.

Well, you must have heard the Pringle’s slogan “once you pop you can’t stop” and this slogan is not wrong. Junk food is addicting and this is no accident. This type of “food” is loaded with sodium, sugar, additives & preservatives.

Too much sodium leads to heart and blood pressure problems. Too much sugar leads to weight issues, inflammation, and behavioral problems.

Here are 3 top “no-no” ingredients in food labels to avoid:

  1. Artificial colorings: Would you ever eat Play-Doh, or chew on a Crayola? If your answer is no, then perhaps reading the words yellow #40, red #12 and so on are probably a no-no also. Know that when coloring and numbers are found in your food it translates to synthetic ingredients which can cause, skin rashes, nausea, and other unwanted side effects. 
  2. Artificial sweeteners: Such as Splenda, Sucralose, Aspartame, Nutrasweet, Truvia, and Sweet ’n Low. Chances are that all of these are still offered at your local coffee shop or they are in those, diet sodas, and  “sugar-free” cookies. Want a better sweetener option? Look for coconut sugar, maple syrup, or honey. The use of artificial sweeteners has been linked to cancer, seizures, and metabolic disorders as some people may not be able to metabolize the artificial sweeteners. In some instances, it can lead to overeating and blood sugar issues.
  3. Sodium Nitrate: Used in red meats to preserve color and flavor. The chemical make- up of this product causes cancer in the stomach, other effects are headaches, vomiting, nausea, and dizziness.

Now that you have this important list, take notice of how your body reacts through the day. The best way is to make a food diary. There are times in which a weird mood or allergic reaction may be related more to the food you consume than just a seasonal allergic reaction.

Meet Andrew Evans: The Serial Entrepreneur With The Secret To Success

Published

on

Serial entrepreneur Andrew Evans is the host of the Ace Weekly Podcast, one of the top 100 podcasts on Apple Podcasts. He currently owns and operates four separate companies: AI Powered Forex Trading Software, Student Development Company, Ace Weekly Podcast, and a Social Media Marketing Agency.

For as long as he could remember, Andrew has had a heart and desire for entrepreneurship.

“Whether it was starting a landscaping company, performing magic at restaurants or starting an e-commerce site, I always was attracted to the idea of getting paid based on the value that I deliver to others. My perspective is that entrepreneurs are the people that change the world and I love that my work each day has the opportunity to impact so many others,” he says.

At a young age, Andrew was already fueling his entrepreneurial drive with his success in sales. He developed his work ethic, speaking skills, and learned to connect with others by building numerous small businesses, but he always knew that he had a deeper calling to serve and impact others. After breaking sales records at his company throughout the years, Andrew decided that he wanted to equip other young people with the same skills and habits that he’d developed.

In 2018, he began working on the Ace Weekly Podcast where he would be teaching other aspiring leaders how to gain the mentality needed to be successful.

“Ace Weekly teaches people the skills, habits and the mentality that is needed to succeed today. I show others how to dominate their field, and find fulfillment in the process by interviewing high-profile entrepreneurs, CEOs, athletes, and other influencers,” he shares. 

Andrew’s Spartan organization works with more students than any other organization in Miami-Dade County. His mission is to empower young people and transform the way that they show up in our world and in our communities. The reason why he opened his original sales office in Miami is because of the great impact that Vector Marketing had on his life at a young age and he wanted to be able to provide that same opportunity to other young people in his community. They work with more students than any other organization in Miami-Dade county.

“Young people are the future of our country and world, and because of this, I know that when I am able to positively impact and change the trajectory of many students lives and careers, I am subsequently impacting and changing the world,” he says. 

Aside from his podcast and sales office, Andrew is also passionate about creating a financial revolution for individuals across the world. Powered by Artificial Intelligence, his corporation Ace Trading Enterprises is helping provide software that allows the average person to have an easier and more successful experience in the world of trading and investing.

His future goals involve transforming the broken education system by building a non- profit college in Miami. Andrew wants to create a modern curriculum that advances human consciousness and teaches students the information and skills that are most important for young people to learn, all while creating a placement program that ensures that students are graduating with job offers and equipped to be valuable in the industry that they desire. 

When Andrew started the Ace Weekly Podcast, his main goal was to help provide and equip people with the mindset that is required to succeed. As someone with the habits and mentality needed to be successful in life, he is a role model for people who wish to find success.

The 10X Ladies Conference Is Declaring 2020 The Decade For Women

Published

on

The next ten years are meant for women to continue growing their potential and succeeding in multiple areas, including business. To help achieve this, the iconic Elena Cardone is launching 10X Ladies.

10X Ladies is a conference designed for women who want it all. It will take place on February 24-25 in Las Vegas, with 10 amazing speakers and more. Some of the invited women are fashion designer Rebeca Minkoff, social media influencer Lisa Morales, and business coach Danelle Delgado.

The idea behind the conference is to expand on the 10X Growth Conference headed by her husband, Grant Cardone, which has been voted the #1 conference for marketing by Forbes, and has taken place every year since 2016.

“I decided to do 10X Ladies because I really wanted women to have the opportunity to be introduced to everything that we do over at Cardone Enterprises, Cardone Capital, Cardone Ventures.” Elena shares.

Grant Cardone runs an empire that includes a sales training University, Grant Cardone TV, a real estate company and more. This is why both Grant and Elena’s vision has always been to build an empire. For years, Grant has been organizing conferences and attended public speaking opportunities to share his ideas and tools with people.

“I feel that some of the ladies might not gravitate towards Grant, but they could come to the ecosystem through me. I didn’t want ladies to be left out of all the information Grant has and now I have as well.” Elena says. 

10X Ladies looks precisely to close the gap that exists between entrepreneurship and business-driven women who want to build an empire, and all the necessary resources to do so.

“Fifteen years ago when I was trying to figure all of this out, there wasn’t a successful couple [in business] that would have the curtains open to show how they do things. Grant and I found that if we hit a certain level, we would keep the doors open so that everyone could see and learn to fastrack their way to success.” Elena says.

It is because of the sense of responsibility that Elena feels now that she is in a position to help others, that she has gone all in into the planning of 10X Ladies, where speakers of the likes of Shay Rowbotton and Maria Conceicao will be sharing their experiences.

“I am very excited. 2020 is self declared the decade of the woman. 10X Ladies comes right on time for that, with amazing speakers and incredible women who can share their stories on how women develop who they are and help women develop their potential.” Elena stresses.

Elena, who first came to prominence as an actress, who starred in Two and a Half Men and Days of Our Lives, married Grant Cardone in 2004. She eventually got involved in business, which had always been Grant’s ballpark, and both began to build their brands in support of each other and their common brand. But her role is mostly to support what Grant does while raising their two kids, which some people see as too traditional.

“I would never tell any couple to do something because it is the woman-way or the man-way. It just happens I married a man who is amazing at business and you would have to be an extreme baller to keep up with him anyway. That was not my forte. I was an actress, I came from a different world. I am a creative person who does things in a visionary way. And what we try to do is divide and conquer and do what we are both good at. He happens to be very good at business, and I support him and give him my visions and ideas.” Elena says.

With 10X Ladies, Elena is creating the perfect platform to share the tools and resources she has had access to, with other women like her who are willing to build and grow their own empire, in whatever industry interests them. 

“The more I have created an empire the more I feel responsible to help women fastrack their way to success.” Elena emphasizes.

There are only 500 spots to attend this fantastic one-of-a-kind conference is Las Vegas, which promises to be the first of many. To find out more about Elena’s work and 10X Ladies, go here.
