Story of Jeff Berwick

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Accessible Media Inc. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.



This is a truly inspiring story of Jeff Berwick and displays many challenges and obstacle he was faced with on a day-to-day basis.  He overcame all challenges with his willpower and determination and did not let his visual impairment get in the way of living his everyday life.  

    He utilized Accessible Media to be able to spend time with the family watching television programs.

AMI(Accessibel Media Inc. is a  great tool for anyone with impairments or disabilities.  It is a non profit organization that operates two broadcast services such as Voice Print  and Accessible Channel for anyone with impairments such as being blind, deaf, or learning impairment etc.

   I think that television watching has come a long way in technology and is growing and this is an awesome organization that keeps all individuals involved.  Individuals gain access to these services provided by AMI so that they are not alienated and it helps gains more involvement in this society in  which we live in. It is also a great tool to help gain stronger relationships within the  family unit as the children all love to watch television together with mom and dad.

What are your thoughts on this video?  Did you find it encouraging, inspiring etc?  Did you know anything about AMI before today?  Share your thoughts with me.

Rating Diet Plans: Which Ones Stack Up? | Video - ABC News

Check out this Video-Rating Diet Plans: Which Ones Stack Up? | Video - ABC News

Which Diet is the Best?

Some suggest that Weight Watchers is the best.
I am interested in the new diet called the "Dash Diet" as I have high blood pressure and this diet is good for people with high blood pressure and hypertension.

A low salt (or low sodium) plan, the DASH diet provides additional benefits to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol. It is based on an eating plan rich in fruits and vegetables, and low-fat or non-fat dairy, with whole grains. It is a high fiber, low to moderate fat diet, and is rich in potasium, calcium, and magnesium.

The DASH eating plan has been proven to lower blood pressure in just 14 days, even without lowering sodium intake

New research shows that following the DASH diet over time will reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease, as well as kidney stones. The benefits of the DASH diet have also been seen in teens with hypertension. The DASH diet truly is the diet for everyone.

The typical DASH diet is low in cholesterol, and rich in potassium, calcium and magnesium as well as protein and fiber: in a 2000 calorie diet you will get about 4700mg potassium, 500mg of magnesium and 1240mg of calcium. The table below gives you a brief overview of how much of each food group an individual on a 2000 calorie DASH diet eating plan needs to consume:
Food GroupServingsExamplesBenefits
Whole Grains6-8 per dayoatmeal, whole meal bread, cerealsCarbohydrates and fiber
Fruits and Vegetables4-6 per daybroccoli, collards, spinach, beans, tomatoesPotassium, magnesium and fiber
Fat free or low fat dairy3-4 per daylow fat milk, yoghurt and cheeseCalcium, potassium, magnesium and protein
Lean Meats, poultry and fish2 or less per daylean cuts of meat, preferably white meat and fishProtein and magnesium
Nuts, seeds and beans4-5 per weekkidney beans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, lentils, almondsMagnesium, potassium, protein and fiber
Fats and Oils2-3 per dayolive and canola oil, avocadosEssential fats
Since the hypertension diet is higher in fiber than you may normally be used to, it may cause bloating and gas and individuals are advised to switch over gradually to this diet.

I would love to try this diet out !
