13 Essential Rules Every Diet Should Follow: It turns out apart from being physically attractive, being skinny is also good for our health and skinny people tend to have a strong immune system rather than chubby ones. After discovering transformation photos or fit moms on Instagram, we started to realize that losing weight is like running a marathon, rather than a 100-meter dash. You can slow down but you must never stop running. 1. There is no such thing is the perfect food, the things that will create perfection is your habits. Your health and weight is the result of your choices. 2. It doesn’t matter what you do – do something. Walk, swim, dance, run, climb, do Pilates. Choose either of them and make it your lifestyle. Keep doing that activity for the rest of your life, rather than only for summer or a couple of months. 3. Try to eat beans and legumes (as a salad or main course) for at least two days a week. They are easy to digest and most of them are considered as low-calorie foods. 4. Try to include a salad for every meal except breakfast. Instead of adding oil to your salad, try seasonings. Most of the ingredients you use for a salad (leafy greens) contain vitamins and antioxidants 5. Select 2 random meals every week to eat fish but instead of eating single or a couple types of fish, try a different kind of fishes for these two meals. Try frying fish without adding oil to cut some calories – fish would probably have enough fat anyway. 6. Try to eat your breakfast as soon as you wake up – that will boost your metabolism. 7. Eating 1 egg at breakfast will keep you full for a long time, but don’t overdo it – 1 egg is enough. 8. Don’t eat too many snacks after dinner and try to include snacks between lunch and dinner because if you don’t, you’ll end up getting hungry after dinner and you can’t digest high-calorie foods if you eat them after dinner. 9. Poor quality sleep increases the chance of putting on weight. Try to sleep the same time each night – the more habits you have, the less you have to think about. 10. Decide which meal is the most important one for you and spend more time to think about what you’re going to eat at that meal. If you consider the most important meal is dinner, take your time to cook something more meaningful than just preparing a sandwich. 11. Use smaller plates and spoons. The more time you spend on eating something, the more time you have to realize you are full. Also, being hungry or full may be a physiological fact but it is also highly related to psychology – I’m sure most of the time you visit your refrigerator, you are bored rather than you are hungry. So if you use smaller plates, the portion you eat is going to seem larger than eating it on a bigger plate. 12. Don’t consume more than 500-gram red meat per week because red meat contains saturated fat and it is not the healthiest thing to eat. Instead of eating red meat, prefer more innocent alternatives like chicken, fish or turkey. 13. Don’t afraid of eating fruits just because they contain sugar. The sugar that fruits contain is not the same thing as you add to your coffee. Fruits contain fructose, which is more natural than the white sugar you add to your coffee and fruits contain less fructose than most people think so it is safe to eat two portions of fruits after dinner – which will probably prevent you from eating high-calorie foods as an alternative.

Should You Really Burn Open Wounds To Stop Bleeding: Have you ever watched a movie where your favorite action hero takes a stab wound or loses a limb and decides to burn the open wound with fire to stop bleeding? Cauterization, sealing a wound with a red-hot instrument in an attempt to keep from bleeding to death, dates all the way back to 5th century BC and was widely popular in the middle ages to treat almost every wound, tumor and infection on medieval badasses. Before you play Rambo and choose to use this method, let’s talk about why it works and why you should probably never try it unless you find yourself bleeding to death in the middle of nowhere and there’s no other method of stopping the blood loss is working. When proteins in our skin and blood are exposed to extreme heat, they lose their original chemical structure, causing them to cease their normal cellular functions. The result is numerous abnormal characteristics – the two that help stop bleeding are the protein loss of solubility and the clustering together of what are known as hydrophobic proteins.

4 Reasons To Eat Eggs For Every Breakfast: It’s pretty incredible how good eggs are for you. One of the most nutritious foods on the planet, eggs, offer multiple benefits to anyone who eats them. While eggs were not always thought of in such a healthy way, doctors and nutritionists have cracked, poached and scrambled those old-school ways of thinking. Eggs are well-known source of protein, they can help with weight-loss and increase muscle mass and lower blood pressure. They contain all the essential amino acids the human body needs. Eating eggs can also lower your risk of heart disease, stroke and other health problems. Why? Eggs are high in HDL cholesterol – that’s the good kind your body needs. A single egg contains more than half the recommended daily cholesterol intake. Eggs contain choline, a nutrient that’s used to build cell membranes and produce signaling molecules in the brain. Just one egg can contain more than 100 milligrams of choline, a significant fraction of the national academy of sciences recommended intake of 550 milligrams for men and 425 milligrams for women.

Which Is Worse Chewing Tobacco Or Smoking: It used to be the case that if you were trying to quit smoking cigarettes, some health advocates would recommend that you replace the habit with smokeless tobacco, since it removes the whole cancer-y combustion part of the equation and supposedly causes less cancer. But there’s tons of evidence that it does, in fact, cause cancer and hey, a study came out this year that not only points to a cancer risk from smokeless tobacco but also the very real risk of a horrible bacterial infection. So those health advocates might want to rethink their chosen careers.

This 4-Week Diet Plan Will Keep Your Belly Flat This Winter: Even if you want to brisk walk and try to maintain an active lifestyle, bad weather may not allow you to do that – at least that’s the most common excuse. Some people don’t mind the weather, they just keep walking as always but some people – like me – may not have the immunity system to protect you from getting sick and it is kind of impossible to find free time to go to the gym as a working woman. So, our only option is to limit what we eat and eat wisely. Besides, we have to be patient for only 3 months and once weather gets back to normal and allows us to walk, we can bend or break some of those diet rules and get away with it just by walking 10 minutes more. Gizem Seber, the dietitian who created this 4-week diet plan, says “All you need to do is prefer foods with a low Glycemic Index (GI) score. These foods have a low impact on your blood sugar and don’t make you crave for more.” She also tells “Regular exercises are also vital” but let’s just skip that for now.

MIT Study Reveals The Disgusting Truth Behind Sneezing: A recent MIT study used high-speed video to track vigorous sneeze and coughs allowing us to see them for what they really are, respiratory explosions. Stick around much longer than 60 seconds and you’ll be surrounded by a sneeze nebula. We’re talking about multi-phase, turbulent, buoyant clouds with suspended droplets of various sizes. In other words, a violent sneeze is a microscopic spray of spittle and phlegm issuing forth like a mushroom cloud, sometimes even reaching air vents at ceiling heights within minutes. The team at MIT created a sneeze fallout model – yes, FALLOUT as in radioactive materials raining down after a nuclear explosion. The model was based on 50 sneezes produced by two people over several days, showing the trajectory of respiratory fluids.

Can A Disease Change The Way You Smell: Everybody smells, that’s just a fact of life but the question is: Can it be changed due to your health condition? The answer is yes. Not only can a disease change the way you smell but different diseases can cause different smells and when we say diseases, we’re not just talking about physical ailments. It is also possible to detect a mental illness through smell. This is not really deserving of a spoiler alert because our species has known about it for thousands of years. Even Hippocrates, apparently, used smell as a diagnostic tool when he would sniff the breath and urine (Ughhhh Gosh) of people to see if there was some sort of ailment going on in their body.
