Benefits Of Pineapple

pinIt wasn’t this common and cheap in Nigeria before.Not that Nigerians don’t like pineapple but ,it was not easily available and also affordable as it is now even in the cities.
I think the aggressive agricultural revolution is the reason behind this.Well,enough of that.Lets talk about what we can benefit from taking pineapple either whole or juice.I will also tell you how to prepare the juice and make it so refreshing.

BENEFITS
Pineapples have exceptional juiciness and a vibrant tropical flavor that balances the tastes of sweet and tart.Pineapple juice contains enzymes that can help digest proteins and offer anti-inflammatory benefits. Depending on whether you buy natural juice, or it has extra vitamin C added, just one serving of pineapple juice provides 30 to over 100 percent of your daily vitamin C. For the best health benefits, look for fresh ONES.

Tips For Handling Belly Fat

bfThis is a serious issue for many people and I am giving out the tips in my desire to have my readers get something of value they can do to get back in shape.One of the most common questions I get is how to lose belly fat and how to lose weight and have a flat tummy.

Belly fat is actually the most dangerous type of fat –apart from the cosmetic importance of a normal shaped body, large waist lines are indicators of disease.Nobody wants that,

Abdominal obesity, also known as beer belly, beer gut, pot belly or clinically as central obesity, is when excessive abdominal fat around the stomach and abdomen has built up to the extent that it is likely to have a negative impact on health.
There is a strong correlation between central obesity and cardiovascular disease. Abdominal obesity is not confined only to the elderly and obese subjects.
Abdominal obesity has been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease as well as other metabolic and vascular diseases.

Below are some tips:

1.Replace high calorie foods with low calorie alternatives.

2.Monitor portion sizes.Means you should mind the quantity of food you consume at a sitting.Like other body fat,they are the product of excessive carbohydrate consumption.

3.Perform a low intensity cardio workout at least four to five days a week for body fat reduction. Lower intensity aerobic workouts burn calories from fat, which results in an overall decrease in body fat. Aim to exercise for a minimum of 45 minutes each cardio workout session.

4.Follow a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, healthy fats and vegetables. Whole grains contain a higher fiber content which creates a full sensation in your stomach for longer periods of time. Heart-healthy monounsaturated fats found in foods like cashew nuts(Please check out our post about cashew nuts),Avocadoes,and salmon have been reported to assist in reducing body fat. Eating fruits and vegetables prevent you from overeating higher calorie foods to help keep your calorie consumption in control.

5.Learn how to manage stress.I know that this may sound out of order for some but i will explain it more in my coming report about how to beat belly fat.

I wrote a short report on hard core belly exercises anyone can do to have a flatter well toned abdomen in the shortest time.WATCH OUT on this page from Monday to grab your own copy if you need it.

pregJulie and her husband have been married for 4 years now but  not yet able to have a child.

Women Who Want To Lose Weight Should Eat Like This.

imagesWomen who want to lose weight do not need to eat special diet foods, but rather should include healthy foods in the right amounts. To slowly and steadily lose the excess weight, as recommended by the American Academy of Family Physicians, a daily reduction of 250 to 1,000 calories is advised, which should lead to a loss of 0.5 to 2 lbs. To avoid feeling hungry while lowering the amount of calories consumed, it is important that women choose the right foods to feel the most satisfied with the fewest calories.
VEGETABLES
Any diet plan should be based on nonstarchy vegetables, which have a low energy density and are more filling as a result, but contain very few calories because of their high water and fiber content, according to the July 2005 issue of the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.” It is recommended to fill at least half of the plate at lunch and dinner with nonstarchy vegetables and to use low-fat cooking methods and low-calorie seasonings to facilitate the weight loss process.
WHOLE FRUITS
Fresh fruits, including apples, pears, berries, grapes, citrus, peaches and plums, should also be part of any woman’s weight loss program. Two to three servings a day, whether consumed with meals or at snack time, not only provides an array of health-protective phytonutrients, but also adds filling water and fiber, which helps keep hunger away between meals.Canned fruits and drinks should be limited or kept away from the diets.

Stress Causes Aging:
Everyone undergoes certain kinds and degrees of stress in some ways, sometime daily or once in a while. These stressors are usually necessitated by the type of work we do. Stress produces free radicals. Free radicals injure the good cells of the body thereby causing their death or weakness. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by mitochondria of the cell, or from other sites within or outside the cell, cause damage to mitochondrial components and initiate degradative processes. Such toxic reactions contribute significantly to the aging process and form the central dogma of “The Free Radical Theory of Aging.” Protein is the body’s building blocks that also repairs worn out tissues. Stress and free radicals harm each of us by diminishing our health and energy. They create the imbalances that result in disease.

How To Lose 20 Lbs (10kg) In 30 Days.

belly fat1Nigerians are increasingly having a large population of overweight/obese people.

To me It simply shows that there is improved standard of living especially among the elites and the middle class.

(Yes, the higher and middle class because even though we are told that our economy is now the largest in Africa, it doesn’t yet translate to the practical stage where the common man can feel it; most of the wealth is trapped by the higher and middle class groups).
