New Happening

The typical fast food diet is a major factor in weakening bones.

Hot Fitness Tip of the week

Taking diet pills may help you to lose weight at least in the short term but they can have serious side effects. Most over-the-counter diet pills contain a diuretic drug. All these diuretic drug increase the output of urine so that you lose water from your system temporarily. These drugs can also cause loss of essential minerals. On the other hand, diet pills based on bran and other types of fibre swell up and help you feel full but will not burn extra fat. They have also been known to cause blockage in the throat or intestine if consumed with inadequate quantities of liquid. The drugs most commonly used to suppress appetite are similar to amphetamines and have many disadvantages such as disturbed sleep depression and weight gain when you eventually stop taking them. They can also be addictive. Diet foods and drinks may help you to eat fewer calories and less fat but it will still be your overall calorie intake that counts. The best way to lose weight and keep it off is to exercise regularly and choose a low fat low sugar diet.
 

 
Words of Inspiration

Enjoy a healthy self image

 

Maintaining a strong healthy self esteem is not always easy in a society that has high expectations for performance and attractiveness.

Enjoy who you are. Look at your finger prints you are unique. No one else is exactly like you. The way you laugh and smile, the way you view the world, the way you think are uniquely yours.

Believe that your uniqueness is important. If all of us looked the same, thought the same and dressed the same the world would be a boring place indeed. Your uniqueness contributes to the vast and beautiful tapestry of our world and as such you are a valuable member of humanity. Accept your uniqueness . Accept who you are as you are right now, while preparing and planning for change and growth in the future.

Enhance your uniqueness. Cultivate an interesting personality. Experience life. Seek out adventure or take on a new challenge.

Article of the Week

Fast Food & Bone Health

Fast food constitutes high content of fat, sodium, and sugar and have been categorized as bone robbers. The main reason that you should avoid fast food is that it doesn't maintain nutritional balance as it is not easy to have control over how they are cooked. Some fast foods are with lots of oil and butter (without any guarantee of purity) and there may be no option if you want this selection with reduced fat. Fast food generally tends to be short on fresh fruits and vegetables. Soda pop and cola drinks contain considerable amounts of phosphorus, an acid-forming mineral in the body. Research has shown that phosphorus can interfere with the skeletonís ability to absorb calcium. A recent study reported in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine suggests that teenage girls who drink lots of soda may increase their risk of developing bone fractures and osteoporosis. These drinks also contain large amounts of refined sugar or equally dangerous sugar substitutes, which further encourage bone loss. During the teenage years, when 40 to 60 per cent of peak bone mass is built, a natural whole foods diet, free of bone-robbing soft drinks, is most important.
