4 Rules to Eating Clean

Processed and contaminated foods could be clogging your arteries and saturating you with harmful hormones and chemicals. Ditch these "frankenfoods" for whole, clean foods that nourish your body the way nature intended. Nutrition expert Tosca Reno, author of the Eat Clean Diet, has developed these four rules to help you eat clean and revitalize your health.

Rule 1: No Processed Food


Our bodies are designed to eat foods in their whole, natural state. Eating tons of foods that have been refined and heavily processed, often with added preservatives, coloring and other chemicals, can damage your health, zap your energy and pack on pounds. Get rid of packaged, processed foods and opt instead for whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, unprocessed meats and dairy.

Exactly How to De-Escalate Aggression From a Stranger

Follow security Expert Bill Staton's important advice to keep yourself safe.

Have you ever had a tense interaction with a stranger in public? Perhaps your shopping carts accidentally knocked into each other or there was a misunderstanding in communication and the other person gets angry. You may wonder how you can de-escalate the aggression and exit the situation safely. So security expert Bill Stanton has your go-to advice for staying alert and protecting yourself in the face of verbal aggression and physical attacks.

THE INITIAL INTERACTION

Bill Stanton: "It always starts with something small, like someone being too close to you, or even more common, you get bumped by a shopping cart. You want to look at their eyes first -it may reveal emotional changes. But you can't rely on just that. Look at what their trunk is doing; a person's torso will reveal their intent. Body language like raising hands, heightened expression, tense shoulders — these are natural responses to a person who is feeling threatened and will escalate. They may begin to zero in on the space between you and them, and their voice will get louder and louder. You want to read this before it gets further and becomes explosive."
