Importance of Exercise
Exercise and nutrition always go hand in hand for optimal health and general well being. Exercise increases your metabolism, the process of burning calories obtained from food. Exercise, especially aerobic exercise, plays a major role in the weight management process. Of course, one should not just rely on exercise for weight loss and overlook the power of balanced nutrition. Exercise and balanced nutrition complement each other by increasing each other’s effect synergistically.
With moderate exercise, the blood circulation is improved and that results into proper distribution of the nutrients to all the body organs for their proper growth. Exercise also helps the body with the elasticity of the muscles. A lack of exercise may result into tissue injuries, such as pain in the lower back, neck and shoulder areas. Lack of exercise due to the busy and stressful lifestyle in the western world is the second biggest factor leading to weight gain and obesity, after excess calorie and fat intake. Therefore, cutting down on total calorie and fat intake, incorporating moderate exercise in daily schedule, and consuming a diet balanced in macro and micro nutrients would lead to a healthy weight management.
How much physical activity do adults (18 to 64 years of age) need?
Below are the exercise guidelines for adults from Center for Disease Control and Prevention:
Adults need at least:
• 2 hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (i.e., brisk walking) every week, and
• muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms).
Here is the good news: 10 minutes at a time is fine.
We know 150 minutes each week sounds like a lot of time, but you don’t have to do it all at once. Not only is it best to spread your activity out during the week, but you can break it up into smaller chunks of time during the day. As long as you’re doing your activity at a moderate or vigorous effort for at least 10 minutes at a time.
Now, here is the type of exercise you can easily do during your day to lose unwanted weight. Give it a try:
1. Try going for a 10-minute brisk walk, 3 times a day, 5 days a week. This will give you a total of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity.
2. Find the farthest parking spot when you go out shopping in the mall or grocery store and walk back.
3. Instead of taking elevator or escalator next time, challenge yourself with taking stairs.…
Importance of Exercise
When I married my wife, I weighed 165, I was in great shape and extremely active, but I started to work more and more and work out less and less, I would pay less attention to the foods that I would eat. Over the course of 15 months and I ended gaining 60 pounds. My job doesn’t require much physical activity (I sit in a chair and stare at a computer all day long), so it was hard to lose the weight and keep it off. I love food and at one point in my life, I could eat anything that I wanted and not gain a pound, I failed to realize that my body wasn’t burning off the calories that I was bringing in. It wasn’t until I started to feel embarrassed going swimming or feeling tired all of time that I decided to make a change. I tried all of the different programs out there, but none of them worked. I was looking for the “become thin in 24 hours” perfect solution, it wasn’t until trying and failing multiple times that I realized there is no such thing. Don’t waste the time with the magic weight loss pills, stick with what has been proven to work, diet and exercise. There are some great programs that will teach you correct and effective dieting and exercising techniques.
Over time, I have learned some different techniques that help in losing weight and keeping it off. It all starts with effective dieting and exercise. Here are some tips that have helped me in losing weight.
Tips for weight loss
1) Fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are very healthy for you. They have a lot of fiber and antioxidants. In addition to this, eating raw fruits and vegetables will make you feel fuller, faster! The amounts of calories that fruit and vegetables have are really low. So be sure to eat plenty of them!
2) Eat in Proportions
Never overfill yourself. Eat until you are satisfied but do not overeat. Remember, you can always pack food up and save it for later. Remember this tip when you got out to eat at a restaurant or fast food!
Instead of three big meals a day, eat less but more frequently. Doing so will keep your blood sugar levels in check. It will help avoid a calorie overload. Try to eat 5-6 small meals in a day.
4) Better Choices
Avoid fast food and processed food, they have more sodium and fat. You can lose weight just by eating home cooked meals.
5) Be Consistent
Do not jump into eating healthy right away. Allow yourself time to eat some of the foods you really like. A consistent change will give you more hope than a quick change and failure. A slow progression will give you faith about your overall progress.
6) Understand Food Nutrition
Fat free claims on products do not necessarily mean that the product is low in calories. Read the nutrition facts on the label to avoid foods that are high in sugar and fat. Do not be fooled by misleading labels that can be put on any product.
Try to drink 8 glasses of water a day. It helps to avoid pop,coffee, and anything else loaded with sugar.
Exercise for 30 min 60 minutes each day to burn off calories. This is one great way to lose a lot of body fat.…

Hair that lacks volume is often referred to as fine, limp, flat or dull. This can be due to many different reasons: lack of moisture, improper diet, poorly chosen hair products, and a multitude of other reasons. To be able to add volume to your hair, one must follow a strict hair care regimen, use proper shampoos and conditioners, and consider making changes in diet. There are many at-home tips and remedies that can also help to add volume to your hair.
Hair Care Regimen
Wash your hair as needed: Washing daily is generally not recommended, but if you insist it is probably ok during colder weather when humidity is low. But when the weather warms up, you should wash it only 2-3 times each week. Also, warm water should be used instead of hot water, which tends to dry out the scalp.
Regular trims: Trimming the spit ends of your hair will make it appear thicker; therefore, a regular trim is necessary. Short, layered hairstyles help to create the illusion of volume and provide better manageability.
Use of Proper Shampoos
Use volumizing shampoos: These types of shampoos add moisture and fullness to the hair.
Use clarifying shampoos: To add volume to your hair, any build-up must be removed via a clarifying shampoo. This type of shampoo should be used twice and then rinsed out. This treatment should be completed every so often to prevent future build up in the hair
Consume foods that are protein rich, such as beans, fish, eggs and spinach, to contribute to healthy hair. Drinking between 8 and 10 glasses of water every day hydrates the hair as well as the scalp which removes excess oil that can cause hair to become flat.
At-Home Tips and Remedies
Vinegar rinse: Hair products or excess oil can build up in the hair. A vinegar rinse performs a deep cleansing and gives the hair life and body. The vinegar will strip the hair of any type of buildup, stimulate the scalp and encourage the hair to have more body.
Egg mask: Eggs contain a large amount of protein which helps to thicken strands. The mixture (2 to 4 eggs, AÃ¯Â¿Â½ tsp olive oil, AÃ¯Â¿Â½ tsp lemon juice) should be applied and massaged into the scalp and pulled through the hair, left on for 30 minutes, and rinsed out with cold water.
Baking soda: Baking soda attaches to oil and dirt to cleanse the hair and add body. Simply add 1 tablespoon to your shampoo, and massage it into the scalp. Rinse with warm water and shampoo your hair once again.
Proper use of a blow dryer: To quickly add volume to your hair, use your blow dryer on a cool setting. Slide your fingers in your hair and lift it up approximately 2 inches away from the roots. Pull the hair in the direction opposite of the way you want it to lay, and dry the underside of the hair. This should give it more volume and vibrancy when you release.…

Often women will find it much harder to lose weight than men; there are so many reasons for this not just those related to the individual body and metabolism. Certainly it seems to be the case that a number of women quickly regain the weight they have lost and in some case can actually gain weight. This is also true of men but women seem to find it the hardest.
So how does a busy women lose weight, you see often it is not that they don’t want to exercise they just don’t have time. Many modern women juggle family home and career and whilst the modern man will help out I think in most case the biggest burden of family and home rests with the woman.
May seem strange to say that one is too busy doing things to exercise properly but it is true little benefit is gained from doing the housework but it sure takes a lot of time.
My tips for the busy woman:
1. Make time get the family to agree that they will do a day of chores and you will rest and do some good cardio exercise a proper workout, get help to plan this and if possible consult a gym.
2. Running, find time to just run the block 20 minutes a day would be great but even two or three times a week would help. You may get some company on this after a while and get to spend some time with the neighbours.
3. Drink lots of water and cut out the fizzy drinks, this will increase energy and motivate you for the little runs round the block.
4. Music, turn the music on when doing the vacuuming you may find a little step here and there will increase your natural energy levels.
5. Walk faster, perhaps you have slowed right down as you walk with the children, those daily places you walk to just do it a bit quicker.
6. Stick to the diet programme you have selected, no adjustments substitutions or excuses stick with it for the recommended time and see the difference. Of course this does not apply if it is giving you physical difficulties and of course consult your doctor.
Of course these sound very simple and basic they are, but they will help and this must be a journey where every little thing we do helps reduce weight after all we did not sit down one day and just become the weight we are it was gradual and it was little things that built up and got us there.
Fastest weight Loss should be about the fastest time you can achieve your goal it is about combining time and speed with a continuity and longevity of weight loss.…
Coloring your hair can add lots of pizazz to your look, but it needs to be done carefully to avoid too much damage to your hair – during and after dying. Here are some of the essential things you should think about when you’re dying your hair.
First, look into the chemicals you’re using to dye your hair, especially if you’re dying it at home. New hair dyes without peroxide and ammonia are starting to go on the market, which means you can dye your hair with gentler chemicals that won’tdo as much damage or cause as many split ends.
It’s not a good idea to chemically straighten or perm your hair when it’s colored, or to color it right after perming or straightening it. The interaction between the chemicals can not only damage your hair, but may also change the color you get, making some colors look brassy. Piling on all of the chemicals will almost certainly result in more fragile hair that breaks easily and is hard to style.
It’s important to trim your hair often to get rid of split ends and keep your hair looking healthy. This is especially true when your hair is treated with chemicals, as it will likely break more often.
Make sure that you use a gentle shampoo made for color-treated hair, and that you rinse it thoroughly to get rid of any film that will attract dirt and minimize shine.
You may consider using a micro-fiber towel, which will absorb more water so that you don’t have to put as much heat on the hair to dry it.
Use a wide-tooth comb to deal with tangles, which will minimize breakage from brushes.
Whenever you can, avoid curlers and curling irons. Instead try to style your hair with a round brush and a blow dryer. Curled hair is more sensitive to heat and will become more fragile if it is subjected to heat every day.
When you’re freshening up your color, don’t recolor all of your hair. Apply color to the roots and pull it out to the ends, but don’t subject all of your hair to the full strength of the chemicals every time you color it.
Colored hair can look great, but it will look better if you pay the price of taking special care of your colored hair to make sure it doesn’t self-destruct.…
