Mary L. Gavin (2018) remarks that preventing kids from becoming overweight means making choices in the way your family eats and exercises, and how you spend time together. Helping kids lead healthy lifestyles begins with parents who lead by example.
There are more and more women getting incorporated into the world of work. Lifestyle has become very hectic for both men and women, not being able to reach out everywhere. As a result, parents do not spend enough quality time with their children. A lack of attention and awareness can affect a child´s cognitive performance, as well as mental and emotional health.
We have a variety of very enriching teas that bring positivity to our body and mind. Among those, green tea is one of the best-known and most enjoyed teas in the world. Green tea is obtained from the leaves and buds of Camellia Sinensis but is has not subjected to the withering and oxidation process used to make other types of teas. Green tea is original from China, but its production and manufacture has been widely spread to other countries in Asia.
When you are trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy body weight, reading food labels properly is an essential skill. Reading a food label not only tells you how many calories you are consuming when you are eating a particular food, but it can also provide you with useful information about the food’s nutritional value. The food label is essentially a cheat-sheet for healthy eating. You do not need to recall the calorie counts of your favorite foods, or to remember how much protein, fat or carbohydrates are in every side item and snack you come across. Nutrition labels make all of this information accessible to you all the time. Once you know how to read a food label, and what information you are looking for on it, you can start making healthier food choices.
Follow the steps below to understand and utilize properly the information provided by food labels. This blog can be extremely useful for people aiming to reach a healthy weight status or losing weight by simply reading food labels.
Summer brings a lot of energy and positive vitamins from the sun and heat, as well as an enriching variety of exotic fruits. These fruits provide us with multiple benefits, helping us fight the heat and stay hydrated.
During the summer season, fruits are enjoyed in a special way because they give us freshness, vitality, and a particular well-being. The heat tends to keep us along with the fruit salad, obtaining all the antioxidant properties and the vitamins they contain.
Processed food often contains chemicals like preservatives, food coloring, chemical flavoring or texturing agents, and many more. These processed foods have become common in our day-to-day diets. Being present in food makes the food more delicious.
However, consuming processed foods in large amounts increases risks to our overall health.
There is a tremendous fear of the word "fat" and the foods that contain it. Fat is not bad nor will it make us gain weight. There is no food that owns its own helps us lose or gain weight. It is about finding the right balance, incorporating all the richness offered by the universe in suitable and stable portions.
It is summertime. Burning more calories than you eat, the so-called "calorie deficit", can help you lose weight. Thus, to achieve this goal, properly calculating a calorie deficit can help you decide how many calories you should eat and burn daily.
How to Create a Calorie Deficit?
You will simply have to eat fewer calories than you typically do, exercise more or, ideally, a combination of both strategies.
People use ginger in cooking and medicine since ancient ages. It is well known as a home remedy for health issues such as nausea, stomach pain, and others.

As the cases of the virus causing Monkeypox are expanding across the world and the scientific community still trying to understand what the cause might be, the current situation is raising concerns while bringing up the memories of early Coronavirus days.
Although the World Health Organization says that Monkeypox is not likely to cause another pandemic, since a) it is not a recently discovered new virus, and b) it is not spreading at the same speed as COVID-19, you might be wondering ... how protected am I from other epidemics/pandemics to come?.
Include it and enjoy it!
We always tend to hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we should not miss it at all. But... is it elemental for us?
Several studies highlight that eating breakfast daily can help maintain / lose weight. Each body is a world to discover and we all work differently. There might be a person, on one hand, who needs to eat as soon as he/she wakes up; however, on the other hand, another individual might not feel comfortable eating straight away and may need few more hours of fasting.
A meal or workout log is a piece of writing or note using a notebook, software, web tool or a mobile app that can help you to keep track of your daily meals and/or training habits. The diary can also help you and your doctor understand your eating and physical habits in order to plan a proper health, fitness or weight loss plan.
But most importantly, daily logs can allow you to achieve results quickly and also help you to manage and control your body weight in a long run.
Just because you are getting older does not mean you will have to face medical conditions or have a poor quality of life. What is important is to know how to age healthily. Aging well and gracefully does not mean that you will look like a teen or in your 20s but you will live with some fewer wrinkles and sagging.
You might be wondering, why for some people is quite difficult to lose weight while other people might find it not so complicated and some might even have a tendency to lose weight naturally. The reason behind this seems to be located in an area of the hypothalamus known as Lipostat, so-called "the Lipostat theory".
Think of this like a little “chip” implanted in our brain, which is in charge of controlling our body weight.
Every parent wants the best healthy and happy lifestyle for their kids. We are certain to this point that every family benefits from adopting healthy habits. As a parent, it’s our responsibility to set an example of a happy and healthy lifestyle as children look up to us, if we will have a habit of consuming junk food, same the kid will do.
There is a fear of giving the body too much rest and sleep, feeling this is wrong for the body and will make it lazy. Nevertheless, ghrelin is closely related to hunger, while leptin connects to the feeling of fullness and satisfaction. Lack of sleep has found to increase ghrelin levels, leading to the necessity to eat. But, what are ghrelin and leptin?
Leptin, a hormone made by our fat cells, minimizes our appetite. Ghrelin, on the other hand, is a hormone that increases appetite and plays a key role in body weight. Both hormones work in harmony, ensuring a balance between all the energy flowing around the body and mind.
We still need carbs. Do not fear them. Instead, love them!
Carbohydrates have been a fear factor in people's lives. I have heard a lot of statements such as "carbs make you fat", "carbs are not good after 7 pm", etc.
It is truly sad to hear that the main fuel of our engine is being declined and eliminated from the diet. Our body works like a car. It requires a specific power and contribution to work and give the best of it. Our leading and most promising fuels are CARBOHYDRATES. The quality of energy carbs can offer can not be replaced with protein or fats. Carbohydrates on their own can not make you gain weight. It always depends on the quality of food you incorporate into your diet. There is no magical food that will make you gain weight, as well as lose weight. It's all about having the right balance.
More than half of all the people making new year's resolutions fail, but making (and keeping) New Year's Resolutions is not impossible.
Below I will tell you how to succeeding, by identifying the right resolution, creating a plan to reach it, and becoming one of the few people that successfully achieve their planned goals, making your goals a reality.
Just as there is no single diet designed for all of us; there is not a specific or right way to exercise and train our body. However, many people enjoy their training with a certain type of music in the background, helping them feel motivated and wanting to give more of themselves.
Music creates a "rhythm response" says Scientific American.
Here is the idea: rather than thinking 24/7 about how many kgs/pounds I have gained this past Christmas season, as a new year resolution for 2022, how about I stop complaining and I immediately do something about it?
Wish just a few logical tips, I will tell you a new way to harness science, leading to a successful calorie (fat) burning that will finally get you back in shape.
