The Best Fat Burning Foods for Weight Loss

Published

on

Fat burning foods are so important for weight loss.

Because certain foods have what is called a “thermogenic effect”.
It means that your body will burn calories with the process of digesting your foods.

If you eat 100 calories worth of protein (25g of protein),
your body will use between 20 and 35 calories of them just in digestion.

So what are the best fat burning foods ?

 

1- Lean Meats are good fat burning foods

As I evoke it a bit before, proteins have a very high thermogenic effect,
by burning around 30% of the calories during digestion.

You can begin to eat more lean meats to get a good themogenic effect in your body.

 

2- Drink Green Tea

Green tea contains something called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) that speeds up your metabolism after drinking it.

A study in an issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that green tea activates the body’s thermogenic fat-burning activity.

Moreover, green tea contains caffeine in it, and the association with the EGCG increase even more your metabolic rate.

 

3- Hot Peppers: little known fat burning foods

Hot peppers contains something called capsaicin that will heat your body up, making you burn more calories.

Eat these the way you prefer: dried, cooked, raw, in powder….

 

4- Coffee

The higher is your metabolic rate, the easier it is for you to burn fat and eat what you desire.

Coffee contains a lot of caffeine, which  can increase the metabolic rate up to 11%.

Coffee will also offer you a lot of benefits

 

5- Whole Grains

If you know me, you then know I am against a crazy carbs consumption.

But I admit that digesting whole grains burn almost twice as many calories than digesting processed foods.

So whole grains are good fat burning foods, if you consume them reasonably

Avoid These 3 Mistakes if You Really Want to Build Muscle

Published

on

By

build muscle

Even if it is often a taboo topic, a lot of people just don’t want to admit that deep inside them, they would like to have more muscles.

Having more muscle is not just an aesthetic thing: if you have a good back and good legs, you will be more apt to age peacefully, because body’s health is extremely important when you get old.

Here are 3 things to absolutely avoid if you want to have a strong and muscular body.

 

1 –  Not Eating Enough Protein


This is a huge mistake: proteins are the building blocks of muscle. It is like if you want to build a house, but you don’t have cement to do it, this makes absolutely no sense.

You should aim to get at least 1.5g per pounds of your body weight.

What are the best protein sources ?

You can eat meat (beef, chicken), fish and of course eggs.

 

2 – Skipping Meals During The Day

If you truly want to build muscle fast, one of the most important thing you can do is to eat every 3 hours.

Even if this concept has not been totally proven, the most muscular people in the world are doing that. So why changing this habit, if it is working very good for all of them ?

Just start to take the habit of eating every 3 or every 4 hours. If you don’t have time to have a meal, even a small one, you can just drink a protein shake, and it will be alright.

3 – Eating Junk Food

If you think eating junk food will give you a muscular body, you are clearly in the wrong path.

Excess carb intakes won’t help you to build muscle, but rather to pack on some fat.

Same thing with trans fats. Just stick to natural foods: green veggies, organic fruits, lean meats..
The simpler, the better.

That doesn’t mean you can’t have a cheat meal sometimes, but please don’t do it too often if you want to stay in good health and build muscle fast.

Don’t Cheat too Often: What to do When You are Having a Cheat Meal

Published

on

By

cheat meal

Most of us like to eat. And sometimes, when we are invited a tour friends’ house we don’t know what to do in front of all this food.

Should we eat a lot ? Should we respect our diet ?

Whatever your choice is, they are some key principles concerning cheat meals, if you do not want to get fat or be in a bad health.


1 – Do Not Eat Too Much of It

 

When you are having a cheat meal, the key is not to eat to eat. Yes, of course you can eat whatever you want. But this doesn’t mean you can eat as much as you want. There is a big difference between the diversity and the quantity

And unfortunately, as we often like to eat in large quantity, the limit can be reached easily, especially if you are drinking sugar beverages, like fruit juice or sodas.

What i do recommend you is : eat what you want, but try at least not to fill your plate completely.

 

2 – Don’t Have Cheat Meals Everyday

 

What I am telling you seems obvious, and yet more and more people tend to have cheat meals every day. Some even have a cheat week.

It is not just about getting fatter. It is also related about your health. Being fat and being healthy are two separate things, even if of course they can be linked together.

You can be slim and still be in a very bad health. So pay attention.

Also, the more cheat meals you have, the more you will crave for it.  Sugar is, for example, one of the brain’s favorite drugs. The more sugar you eat, the more reward mechanism you send to your brain, the more it will crave for it.

 

3 – Eat very little (or do fasting) for the Following Meal


If you had a very good meal, full of calories, you really have to pay attention for the meal that follows it.

Don’t eat like a lion or a caveman all day long, or you will definitely pack a lot of fat.

The best thing you can do, is intermittent fasting. Just eat your cheat day, and then fast for at least a 12 hour period. Drink a lot of water during the whole day.

3 Tricks to Improve your Sleep and to Never Feel Tired Anymore During Your Day

Published

on

improve your sleep

We are often losing one third of our life just by sleeping.

And yet, a lot of people complain that they don’t get enough sleep. When the alarm clock is ringing, some of us just don’t want to hear it, and we are doing everything to win some more minutes.

So how to improve your sleep ?

But first: why do we care so much about sleeping ?

Mainly because sleeping deprivation triggers low energy, low performance, bad decision making capacities, more fat storage…

You definitely want to improve your sleep.

Here are 3 tips you can start doing right now

1 – Sleep by 90 min Period Cycle

A full and complete sleep pattern is 90 minutes. Your mind and body need to accomplish several 90-minute cycles.

Have you ever felt tired even after 10 hours of sleeping ? It is because you may have woken up during a 90-minute cycles and not after finishing it. You would have slept 10 hours and 30 minutes if it was the case, doing 7 cycles of 90 minutes

Choose your number of 90-minute cycles that you want to accomplish and stick to it. Generally doing 4 or 5 cycles is what is best for you.

 

2 – Don’t Eat just before Sleeping

This is one of the biggest mistake you can make. If you eat before sleeping, your body will trigger all your digestion mechanisms and you will spend a lot of energy to digest the aliments you just ate.

But it is even worse than that…

Your body is not made to digest food in a laying position. You will consume extra energy to do so.

So what is the point of sleeping to have your energy back, if you spend it during your whole night ?

Think about it and don’t eat anything at least 1 hour before you sleep.


3 – Empty Your Mind Before Your Sleep

 

Right before sleeping, it will be very good for you to calm down, to relax your body and your mind, and to start to empty your mind.

So how do you empty your mind ?

I know it can be hard for some people. To enter in this form of meditation, if you have some trouble doing it, all you have to do is focus on your inner sensations.

Feel your head against your pillow. Really feel your legs on your bed. Feel every sensation you have at the present moment, and it will help you to drift into your wonderful dreams.

Don’t Miss these 3 Secrets to Get Up Early Every Morning (and Easily!)

Published

get up early

I know. We tend to have trouble to wake up early.

The alarm clock is ringing…and yet you don’t move. You want to stay in bed.
Yet you are losing a lot of opportunities that life offers you.

Early risers rule the world.

Do you want to know how to do it ?

 

1- Have Your Alarm Clock Away From You

Here is the most important advice I can offer you.

Put your alarm clock at least at 5 meters from you. Because you will have to get up to turn it off.

And by standing up, your brain is awaking itself, and you instantly change your state.

Then you have to go further and enter in an other room to further the process of awaking.

 

2 – Keep a Positive Attitude Whatever the Hours of Sleeping  You are Having

You can sleep as many hours as you want: if you are thinking that
when you wake up you won’t have enough sleep, get what ? You will
wake up tired.

Even if you sleep 12 hours and you tell yourself: “it is not enough”,
the law of attraction accomplished your desire: you feel tired when you wake up.

You just have to tell yourself that you will be alright whatever the hours of sleep you are getting.  Stay always positive

 

3 – Choose How to Fill your Morning Hours

What do you want to do when you wake up ? Do you want to meditate ? Do you want to do sports ? Do you want to read ?

Time is precious. And you will FEEL excited from then on when you wake up, because you will have a lot of things to do.

And the good news is: nobody will bother you! Because everyone is sleeping!

Avoid to Eat These 3 Things Right After your Training

Published

on

food to avoid

Nutrient timing and partitioning is essential to have a very good body and to feel great about yourself.

Many people, especially newbies, don’t really know what to take after a good workout.

And If it is your case, you may want to read what will be indicated below, to optimize your training.

1-Don’t Eat Solid Aliments

You need to eat foods that are very easy to digest. To go even further, having is liquid meal is the best thing you can do for nutrient targeting.

Of course you will be able after to eat a solid meal. Don’t get me wrong. But you will have at least to wait 1 hour before doing so.

If you truly want to eat something solid after your training because you don’t want to have a liquid meal (protein shake, raw eggs…) eat simple foods that will digest very fast, like white eggs and fruits.

 

2-Don’t Eat only Carbs

Carbs are good for replenishing your glycogen stores.
But if you want to have a good recovery, you absolutely need to eat proteins. Period.

Carbs won’t build new muscle tissues. Proteins will.

Having at least 30 grams of proteins after your training is very important, inasmuch as without proteins, it would be impossible for you to repair, maintain and build new muscle tissue.

Proteins will also help you to be in a positive nitrogen balance state, allowing you to be in an anabolic state.

You will then be able to build more muscle.

 

3 – Don’t Eat Fats Right After your Training

Fat intake will slow your digestion and your absorption of proteins and carbs. Your muscles will take more time to recover.

Studies have shown that eating fat after your training will reduce your human growth hormone levels by half of what levels were after fasting.

And this will occur as soon as you ingest more than 5 grams of fat after your workout.

So next time, only eat proteins and carbs, and everything will be alright for you.

3 Reasons Why Eating Sugar is Destroying your Health

Published

on

sugar

The worst ingredient to your meals is added sugar.

It can have detrimental impacts on your health and triggers all kinds of diseases.

Here are 3 reasons why you have to avoid added sugar at all costs:

1 – Sugar is a terrible drug : your brain is extremely addictive to sugar intake

 

Each time you are eating sugar, you brain will release a large amount of dopamine.

This dopamine spike is very addictive and some people just can’t fight this addiction.

Each time you are eating foods that are not natural (like for example, junk foods), you will release much more dopamine than foods coming from nature.

You may think it is not important, but you have to realize that every single drug acts in the reward center of the brain, and sugar makes no exception whatsoever.

 

2 – Sugar is one of the Precursor to Cancer

 

Unfortunately, nowadays cancer is one of the major causes of death in the world and is characterized by a constant and uncontrolled multiplication and growth and of cells.

Insulin is a hormone that regulates this kind of growth: the less insulin spikes you have, the more the growth will be regulated and controlled.

Eating sugar constantly will raise a lot your insulin levels, and this fact can ease the cancer development.

Moreover, all the problems associated with a high sugar consumption often trigger inflammations: another important cause of cancer.

 

3 – Added Sugar has Anti Fat-Burning Properties

 

Sugar intakes can have different effects on your brains and above all on the hormones that are controling your food intake

Even if it tastes good, added sugar won’t cause satiety in your brain or lower your hunger hormones (such as ghrelin)

Therefore over time, this can result into an increased calorie intake, simply because the calories coming from sugar aren’t as fulfilling as proteins or fats.

So stay away from added sugar. Period.

4 Advice to Start Your Exercise Routine When You Are Already Overweight

Published

on

overweight

Although some people, those who are already skinny to begin with, say that healthy living is the easiest thing to do in your life, this isn’t true for those who are already overweight to begin with. One thing is for sure, when you are overweight and intend on going on a diet and starting an exercise routine, you don’t want to jump in with both feet. By doing this, you can not only hate your life because of the diet and exercise routine you started too fast, but you could hurt yourself as well. Jumping into something like this too fast can be bad for your health. Keep reading to learn the do’s and the don’ts of starting your exercise routine when you are already overweight.

 

1 – Do Cut Yourself Some Slack

 

Cutting yourself some slack is something you want to do before you even start on the road to weight loss. This means, don’t beat yourself up over how you got overweight or why. Show yourself some compassion if you want to be successful at losing the weight you want to lose. Don’t feel sorry for yourself or even blame yourself or this will set you up for failure right from the beginning.

 

2 – Do Think of Healthy Living as a Skill Set You Can Improve at Instead of Just Something You Do Right from the Beginning

 

Think of healthy living as a skill you can improve at instead of something you just jump right into knowing how to do it from the beginning. For example; think of living healthy like learning how to ride a bike. You get on the bike and if you fall off of it, you don’t cry and give up but instead you jump right back on and try again. Thinking of it as a learning curve will bring you greater success than just getting it right from the beginning.

 

3 – Do Find Something You Enjoy Doing

 

Do you enjoy swimming, riding a bike, running or jogging, or walking with friends and family? Find something you can have fun with or relax while doing it and you will be successful better than going to the gym if you hate the gym. Finding something you enjoy doing and starting with that will put you on the road to a successful weight loss journey.

 

4 – Don’t Focus on the End Result

 

Instead of focusing on the finish line or the end result, focus on what can be done right now. Try to achieve little goals while trying to lose weight. For example, you can start out with a goal of losing 10 pounds in three months or something similar to that. You can’t see the future so don’t go looking ahead of schedule. Instead, concentrate on those little goals you can achieve right now.

 

By using the tips above, you WILL lose the weight you want to lose. Stay positive and happy about your weight loss journey and you will be as successful as you want to be.

5 Tips to Keep the Communication Going in a Relationship

Published

on

By

communication

When it comes to being in a relationship, open and honest communication is very important to keep the relationship healthy and going strong. If you live together but lie to your partner every chance you get or ignore him or her, disaster is heading your way. Everyone wants to be in a healthy and strong relationship, so remember, if you want to keep yours going, keep the following tips in mind.

1 – Find the Right Time

 

Is something bothering you and you need to let your partner know about it? If you have something nagging at you constantly and need to get it off your chest to your partner, you should find the right time to talk first. This means making sure either of you are not busy or in a hurry. You also want to make sure either of you are distracted by anything else so as to be able to sit down and talk to each other without having anything stopping you from talking and without having anything stopping them from listening. If you have to schedule a time to talk to them, this would be better to do than to have to rush around and not get the results you are looking for.

 

2 – Talk Face-to-Face

 

If you have something serious to discuss with your partner, you will be better off doing so face-to-face rather than on the phone or in a text. Face-to-face is better for you both so you can both see each other’s honest reaction. Not only this, but having a serious discussion through email or by text on the phone could lead to a misunderstanding because one of you, or even both of you, could misunderstand what the other is trying to say.

 

3 – Avoid Attacking Your Partner

 

When you have something you want to say to your partner, and you get into an argument, avoid attacking your partner. You don’t want this to happen because you could unintentionally hurt your partner and they can put you in jail. They could also end up really hurt too and no one wants this to happen

 

4 – Stay Honest

 

Remaining honest with your partner during your conversation is always best. No one likes to be lied to. Think about it; you don’t like to be lied to so why would you want to put anyone else through that? Always stay honest with him or her and the relationship will keep going strong.

 

5 – Try the 48-Hour Rule

 

If you and your partner get into an argument and they have made you mad or the other way around, you should speak up. However, you can and should wait for at least 48-hours to allow it to blow over. If you are still upset after the 48-hours are up, then you should speak up and let them know how you feel. The waiting period can allow you both to cool off and get over it without the argument escalating into something dangerous for either of you.

 

Using the tips above will allow you to grow your relationship into something strong and beautiful.

Yes, that’s right! Some negative emotions are good for you. Although you wouldn’t think that thinking bad thoughts would be good for you, it is a good thing to think negative at times. How? Having some negative feelings and emotions can warn you of something bad that is coming your way. Negative emotions warn you of a threat. But, how is this possible?

 

Let’s talk a little about fear. No one wants to experience fear but it is a normal part of life and a natural way of thinking and feeling. The emotion and feeling of fear can warn you of something dangerous letting you know you need to do something to protect yourself.

 

What about anger? You may experience anger when someone or something makes you mad. Did someone step on your toes and take something from you by jumping in front of you for a job? If this has happened to you at one time in your life, this can cause you to feel angry which then means you need to stand up for yourself and act on your own behalf to stick up for yourself.

 

What about sadness? Did something bad happen that made you sad? Did someone die or get sick in your family and you are really sad? This is also a healthy negative emotion and when or if this happens to you, let the tears stream down. You will actually feel better after you have a good cry for yourself.

 

Although these emotions are a normal part of life, get them out and don’t dwell on them too much. If you do, you will start to feel negative more often and this can cause negative things to happen to you. Negative thinking causes negative things to happen and you don’t want that, do you?

How Positive Thinking Can be Good for you

 

Now, we are finally at the happy part and we are discussing the positive side of things.Positive thinking can make you happy. However, don’t be overly positive because this can cause you to irritate others. No one likes an overly happy person that acts like nothing in this world can bother them!

 

Positive thinking has a lot of power, however, and a healthy balance between the two ways of feeling and thinking will be good for you overall emotionally and physically. A healthy dose of positive thinking can increase your awareness, your attention, and improve your memory.

Diet or Exercise: Which is More Important for Weight Loss?

Diet or Exercise Which is More Important for Weight Loss

Some people say living healthy is easy while others say it is the hardest thing they have ever done in their lives. Whatever side you agree with, one thing is for sure. Living healthy is better than living unhealthy. While this is true, what if your fitness coach told you that you had to choose between diet or exercise? Which one would you choose to lose the weight? Although you would want to choose the easiest way, it is better to choose the healthiest way or the more important way. Keep reading to learn which one is better for weight loss than the other one.

 

1 – Dieting: Which One is the Best?

 

When you start your diet, you probably think you should choose which diet is best; low calories, low fats, or low carbs. Which one is the king here? The answer is none of them because if done right, they all three can bring some great results. It really depends on the individual and how they go about their diet. It truly depends on how much they eat and if they eat smaller portions every day or if they eat healthier food every day.

 

2 – Exercise: Is it Effective Alone?

 

According to a research study that was done on exercise alone, without cutting calories, fat, or carbs, it was found that exercising without changing your diet is not as effective as just changing your diet.

3 – Exercising and Diet: Should You Do Both?

 

Now, let’s decide on whether you should include changing your diet with exercise and see how effective doing both together is. According to another research study that was done, it suggests that doing both together isn’t as effective as just diet alone. The reason for this is because people are terrible at calculating calories in versus calories burned. This was found during the research study when people were asked to go to the gym and do some exercises. They were then asked to go to a buffet and eat the same number of calories they just burned. What they did was ate two to three times as much food as the calories they burned in the gym. Because of this, they didn’t lose the weight they should have since they didn’t calculate calories burned versus calories taken in the way they should have to lose the weight they could have and should have lost.

 

So, what did we get with this information? Changing your diet is better for weight loss than exercising is. Although, this may be true, according to the research studies that were done to find this answer, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t also exercise while dieting to achieve our weight loss goals. Think of it this way, which makes you happier and releases more endorphins making your happier? Going to the gym and exercising or cooking in the kitchen and counting calories? Going to the gym does because physical activity is what causes the brain to release the endorphins to make us happier. This just means that by adding exercise to our changes in diet will make it easier to change our diets.

5 Tips to Make a Long Distance Relationship Work

Published

on

By

long distance relationship

Being in a long distance relationship may be hard for you both. Your family and friends may discourage you from being in one because they are afraid you will be hurt in the end. Although, you may feel lonely at times if you are in a long distance relationship, think of how much sweeter everything that closer distance relationships take for granted will be for you both. Things like holding hands, kissing, hugging, and just seeing each other after being apart for so long. Here are a few tips to make your long distance relationship work.

 

1 – Avoid Too Much Communication

 

Although you do want to talk to each other as often as you want, you shouldn’t communicate too much. The reason for this is because if you call your long distance partner too much throughout the day and night, you will look to them as you are too needy and possessive. The same goes for them calling you too much throughout the day, they will start to think of you as too needy and possessive. Coming off as too needy and possessive can end a relationship as fast as it even started. Try talking several times per week and that is it. This will give you something to look forward to anyway.

 

2 – Think of the Relationship as a Test

 

You can view your long distance relationship in a positive way instead of a bad way by thinking of it being a test for you both. Being in a long distance relationship can be hard and this is why many of them don’t last. However, viewing it as a test for you both to see how strong willed the two of you are is a good way to think of it.

 

3 – Set Some Ground Rules

 

By setting some ground rules from the beginning of the relationship, you will be managing your expectations of what you expect from the relationship. If you expect them to not date anyone else while the two of you are apart, make this clear in the beginning. This way they can decide if they want to move forward with the long distance relationship.

 

4 – Talk Dirty to Each Other

 

When you call them or they call you, why not talk a little sexy to them? This can also build up the momentum and make you both go crazy for seeing each other. Once you talk dirty to them and they do the same for you, you won’t be able to be apart for one more minute without going crazy.

 

5 – Do Things Together Virtually

 

This means when you are playing a game, ask them to play it with you online. When you are doing something fun, have them do the same thing at the same time. By doing this, you will both be laughing and having a blast “together” and won’t be able to wait much longer until you see each other again.

 

Using the tips above will help you keep your long distance relationship going strong for as long as you both decide to keep it going.

4 Secrets on How to Learn to Love Yourself

Published

on

By

love yourself

When it comes to being in relationships with other people, you first need to learn to love yourself before you can love anyone else or be loved by anyone else. Too many times, we look in our reflection in the mirror and see our flaws before our beauty. You need to learn to turn that thinking around and see your beauty before your flaws. Just like how a mother loves her children unconditionally no matter what they look like and no matter what they do in their lives,. We too need to learn how to do this with ourselves without reservation. Here are some ways you can learn to love yourself so that you can love others and be loved too.

 

1 – Make Contact With Your Inner Self

 

Making contact with your inner self first means to pay more attention to your self-care. This can be done through meditation, self-reflection, contemplation, and experiencing a few minutes of quiet time for yourself every day. Once you learn how to do these things, you will be able to get in touch with your inner-self, learning to appreciate yourself and enjoy yourself more.

 

2 – Being Honest With Yourself Enough to Face Your Inner Obstacles and Resistance

 

One thing you need to do at one point in your life is to face your inner obstacles, or inner demons as they say, and face the resistance you have against yourself. You can do this by really being honest with yourself and facing your past by coming to terms with that past. Once you come to terms and be honest with yourself about the stress and anxiety from  your past, you can learn to release that stress and anxiety once and for all. Coming to terms with it is the first part of allowing it to be released. Let the releasing begin for yourself.

 

3 – Dealing With Your Past Wounds

 

If you have ever been really hurt by someone from your past, you know what it means to deal with those past wounds. Although you may not have dealt with those old wounds yet or have not forgiven the people in your past yet, maybe the time is now. If you find yourself stuck with old resentments, scars, and pain that someone you used to love has caused you, it is time to forgive them and let it go. Holding on to these old wounds will just eat you up inside and life will be bad for you now and in the future.

 

4 – Accept the Place Your Life is at Now

 

There are some things you can’t change in your life. For example, if you have always wanted children but you have a medical condition that causes infertility, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, knowing you can’t change it and that you gave it your best shot at trying, let it go and accept where you are now in your life. Be happy with what you have and don’t worry about what you don’t have. Maybe you weren’t meant to have children after all. If you have stepchildren, be thankful for them and accept everything in your life for what it is now. Doing this will make you a happy person and will help you to learn to love yourself.

 

Once you have done these things, you will be in a place where you can finally love yourself, love others, and be loved by others all unconditionally.

Why Eating Too Fast Can Stop you From Losing Fat Fast

Published

on

By

eating too fast

Eating too fast is a really issue. Indeed, sometimes we focus too much on what we eat, and about how much we eat.

Yes, we have to eat a mix of proteins, carbs and fats.

But we rarely focus on how we eat. And that’s too bad, because controlling the ingestion of food can have a profound impact on your body and health

You definitely need to eat slowly,and here are some advice to keep in mind:

 

1 – Have Small Bites and Really Chew Slowly

The best thing you can start to do right now, is to begin to really chew your aliments, by taking only small bites of it.

Chewing slowly has a lot of advantages. It will not only help you to be less hungry, but it will also enable you to absorb and digest better all the nutrients.

It can take you some time to learn. It can be frustrating. But it is highly rewarding, especially is you want to have a better health and body.

 

2 – Drink Tons of Water Between Your Meals

Your stomach is not a calorie counter, but a volume one.  You can eat a lot of things without being full, and still being so much hungry.

And there’s come a little secret. You can use water (0 calorie) at your advantage. If you drink water, your stomach will perceive it as high volume foods, and will triggers a quick fullness sensation.

The same thing happens with vegetables, because they often contain more than 90% of water.

So instead of eating bread or chips… you know what you can do if you want to burn fat.

 

3 – Let the time Needed for Your Food Signals to Attain your Brain

When you eat fast, even if you eat a lot, you will be hungrier sooner after your meal than the ones that are eating slower

Because when food enter your month, it sends signals to your brain.

The problem is that: if you are eating too fast, you don’t let the time for the signals to reach your brain. Don’t get me wrong: signals will be sent. The things is that by eating slower, satiety signals come faster to your brain and you just want to stop eating sooner. Think about it if you want to lose weight fast.

Why is Sexual Health so Important?

Published

on

By

sexual health

When it comes to trying to determine a definition of sexual health, it can be a hard thing to do. The reason for this is because every person is different and their sexual health is just as different as they are. Although some people believe that being sexually healthy means staying clean from sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy, these factors are not the only things that keep a person from being and staying sexually healthy. There are more ways to stay healthy sexually.

 

However, preventing sexual diseases and preventing pregnancies are good ways to stay sexually healthy. It is worth mentioning this more than once to keep people from getting sexual diseases and preventing young teens from getting pregnant.

 

So, Just What is Sexual Health?

 

According to the American Sexual Health Association, sexual health is embracing your sexuality throughout your life. It also means enjoying your sexuality throughout your life. However, there is more to it than just that. ASHA says that sexual health also means:

 

  • To understand and keep in mind that sex is a natural part of life and there is more to sex than just sexual behavior.
  • Respecting and realizing that we all share the same sexual rights.
  • Having the access you need for sexual education, sexual health, and sexual care.
  • Making the effort to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs but knowing how to get the treatment and care you need if they do happen.
  • Being able to enjoy sex and intimacy when you want to.
  • The ability to speak up about your sexual health with your partner(s) and health care providers.

 

Although being sexually healthy means to have safe sex to prevent diseases and pregnancy, you also need to remain positive and keep all of the above in mind when thinking about your sexual health.

 

It is important to understand that you should be able to speak up about your thoughts and feelings about your sexual health, desires, and the intimacy you share with your partner(s). It is also a good idea to ensure you speak to your doctor about how you feel about your sexual health.

 

What if I don’t Want Sex?

 

Having sex with your partner(s) is a natural part of life and everyone desires it at one or more times in their lives. Some people, more than others. However, if you don’t want sex, you need to speak to your doctor to determine the problem causing this. You are a normal person, don’t think you aren’t because you are not the only one that goes through the problem of not having the desire to have sex. However, something is causing this in your life. It could be a trauma that happened in your life such as a sexual assault.

 

If you don’t want sex very often or not at all, it could also be the medication you are on. Many different medications, prescribed or not, can cause loss of libido. If this is the case, your doctor will help you find a solution to your problem.

 

Speak to your partner too. Let them know there is something wrong and you are going to get the help you need to ensure you will be able to desire sex again. Speak up as much as you can. No one can read your mind!

food supplements

Although you may be on a diet and think you are getting the vitamins and nutrients you need for your best health, you are wrong! No diet is perfect and to be completely honest, many diets do not provide you with the nutrients your body really needs to live a healthy life. Although there are good diets that you can try, it is better to also take food supplements to help with the nutrition you need. Here are some of the best supplements you need for your best health.

 

1 – Multivitamin

 

Multivitamins are good to take to get the essential vitamins you need on a daily basis. By taking a multivitamin, you can enjoy the benefits of taking just one pill every day instead of taking many pills every day. Many of us are already on a lot of prescribed medications and take five pills or more per day already so why would you want to take more when you can take just one to get the nutrients you need? Make sure, when choosing a multivitamin, that you choose one that contains the nutrients you need for your health. You can choose one by reading the label and making sure it contains what you need most for your health.

 

2 – Fish Oil

 

Although there has been some negative studies done on fish oil supplements, you can still benefit from taking them on a daily basis. The studies that were done did not find any real facts on their research. Fish oil is a really good source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids which is not only good for your mental health but it also good for your heart health.  Also, because fish oil supplements are an excellent source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, they can help you absorb other supplements better for optimal health. They also help your good cholesterol and improve your metabolism.

 

3 – Vitamin D

 

If you haven’t figured it out yet, Vitamin D is great for your health. When your body is low in Vitamin D, you are more prone to different types of cancer, weight gain, depression, and being low in this very important vitamin can even cause your body to not absorb the nutrients you need for your best health. You can easily get Vitamin D just by spending time outside when the sun is shining. Getting out in the sun is really the easiest and best way to obtain this vitamin in your body.

 

4 – Folic Acid

 

You may already be familiar with Folic Acid and how good it is for women who are pregnant to take it. The reason for this is because it can prevent your baby from being born with spinal cord problems as well as brain disorders. However, this very essential vitamin is also great for both men and women because it is a great source of Vitamin B which is good for preventing Alzheimer’s Disease. It is also great for controlling high blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease, and improving your blood flow.

 

These vitamins and many more are essential for your best health. Living your best health can allow you to live longer and live a happier life. Live your life to your fullest potential by taking these best supplements for health.

Having a healthy relationship is something everyone wants to have. It is something everyone deserves to have. No one wants to have a toxic relationship with abuse or neglect. No one deserves that either. This is why you need to know the requirements of a healthy relationship. Here are a few things you need to have in order to have a healthy relationship that will last for a long time.

1 – Self-Love

 

First, before you can have a healthy relationship, you need to love yourself before you can love anyone else or be loved by anyone else. You need to believe in yourself and nurture yourself as much as you can. Loving yourself can also make you stronger and being strong can lead to a healthy relationship that is full of love.

 

2 – Trust in One Another

 

The next thing you need to have a healthy relationship is to have trust in the person you are with. They have to be able to trust you too. This means being open and truthful with them and they you, about everything from the beginning. Without trust in one another, you don’t have a relationship.

 

3 – Honesty

 

This goes hand-in-hand with trust, but it is something worth mentioning anyway. You should always be open and honest with your partner to have the healthy relationship you have always dreamed of and deserve to have. From the very beginning, as long as you are honest with each other, you will trust each other always and this leads to a healthy and a very happy relationship for you both.

4 – Communication With Each Other

 

Make sure the line of communication is open with each of you. Tell them everything and talk about everything with them and they will do the same with you and for you. Having an open line of communication whether it is face-to-face, on the phone often, or online, or even in letters, will open up the future for you both to have a great relationship with each other.

 

5 – Connect with Each Other

 

Connecting with each other instantly is something that comes with true happiness in a healthy relationship. If you connect instantly, everything else will fall into place like it should. Make sure you are always connected with each other in some way. This also goes in place with communication. The reason for this is because it is easy to get wrapped up in the busy lifestyles that we all have that if we are not connected all the time with those we are in a relationship, something can come around and instantly tear us apart. Some ways to be connected with each other is by messaging each other through texts, talking on the phone, or sending each other emails. Stop and take five minutes out of your busy day and connect with your partner.

 

Once you understand these requirements for a healthy relationship, and you put them altogether, you won’t just have a healthy relationship, but a happy one as well.

If you suffer from insomnia every night or almost every night, you aren’t the only one who has trouble sleeping. Many people are having the same problem as you are. In fact, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, those who suffer from insomnia also suffer from stress, depression, jet lag, and being on certain diets can cause you to not be able to sleep at night. However, there are ways to beat this all too common problem. Here are a few things you can do to prevent insomnia and sleep better every night.

 

1 – Keep a Schedule

 

Keeping a schedule is something we all do every day as it is so it is not something hard to do when it comes to a sleep schedule. What you can do is, try to go to bed at a certain time at night and do this every night. You should also wake up at the same time every morning. Try to do this on the weekends as well, although you would prefer to sleep longer during your time off, it is better to keep a set schedule every single day of the week. It is best not to stay in bed for too long because then you will get lazy.

 

2 – Let the Sunshine in

 

Sunshine is good for everyone not just because of the Vitamin D it provides but also because it can help you get the natural energy you need to get through your day easier. As soon as you wake up in the morning, open the blinds and let the sun shine into your bedroom. Go outside while drinking your morning coffee and let the sun hit  your face for a little while. Although too much sun on the body can cause a sunburn, and not to mention skin cancer, getting sunshine on your body in moderation is good for you.

 

3 – Eat Better Every Day

 

Everyone knows eating right is good for the body. This is why we all should eat right every day to enjoy the health benefits from it. Make sure to consume enough fruits and vegetables all throughout the day, every day. Not only are they good for you but they taste great too. Make sure to get the right amount of nutrition on a daily basis to live your healthiest life.

 

4 – Cut Caffeine, Alcohol, and Nicotine

 

Try not to consume caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine  a few hours before you go to bed at night. Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants and will just keep you awake at night. Although alcohol is a depressant and can help you relax and sleep, it doesn’t allow you to get the rest you need when sleeping. You will also wake up feeling awful, especially if you consumed way too much of it the night before.

 

5 – Try Yoga

 

Try yoga to help relax your body. Not only this, but you can do this in bed because of the easy poses. Some different types of yoga you can do in bed include meditation, the reclining twist, and the cross-legged bend. Try these poses before bed and see how well you fall asleep at night.

 

Trying these different things to help you sleep will allow you to not only finally beat that nasty insomnia but it will also help you sleep better than you ever have before. Waking up well-rested in the morning will give you the energy you need to get through your busy day.
