How to Not Overeat™

Image
We all like to eat. Okay we all LOVE to eat. Our bodies need food to sustain life but our country has turned into a recreational sport. Studies have shown that 6 out of 10 people in the United States are overweight.The truth is we should enjoy eating but like all good things, we shouldn’t abuse it. Here are some tips on how to control your eating that won’t take any more extra effort than what you are doing now.• Eat more protein. It helps you feel full and digests slowly.

• Eat more fiber. Not only will it keep you regular but it digests slowly therefore making you feel fuller longer.

• Don’t value size. Sure, economically it makes sense. I mean twice as much food for less than half a buck. More food isn’t going to make you feel better, which brings us to my next point….

• Don’t fill up your plate. Studies have shown that people will eat whatever is on their plate, even if it is 10 bites after being full. Don’t let your food touch on your plate. You can even get smaller plates.

9 Tips to Stop Food Cravings and Help You With Your Diet™

Image
Most of us are "regular" people. We don't eat the perfect diet
all the time and have our struggles with food, same as everyone
else. But having an awareness of this fact and knowing a little
bit about our health and food nutrition can help when it comes to
making wise decisions.Many people struggle with food "cravings." Studies tell us that
it's fairly common for food cravings to happen at certain times,
quite often at around bedtime. Your guard may be down, you may
have had an unusually hard day, and off you go on your
not-so-merry way to find that tasty treat. Fatigue and stress
often combine to take their toll on the best of intentions.When food cravings are unconstrained, what starts out as a
bedtime snack quickly turns into a full blown feeding
frenzy...not something most of us fully understand or appreciate.
We head to kitchen and every other place where food can hide,
clearing a path as we go.Most food cravings are not about satisfying a nutritional need or

She was beautiful. She was popular. I wanted to walk up to her and say something clever so she would know that I liked her. I was different than all the jerks she went out with. So I walked up to Tina and told her that I liked her and that we should go out. She smiled and said "Why thank you. You would make any girl happy but you and I can only be friends."

Back then I just didn't get it. That was many years ago and today I can talk to any woman, anytime, and anywhere. I can also get a date whenever I want. I see men make the same mistakes over and over again. So here are 7 Common Dating Mistakes Men Make that get in the way of having better results with beautiful women.

The Fundamentals of a Great Marriage™

Image
There are two types of marriages. A marriage in which a couple is married and cares about each other and another in which the couple loves each other and supports the development of each emotionally and spiritually. I met my wife in Russia. Our romance was something of a whirlwind romance. There are times when you just know something is right. You do not know why you do it - you just know you must. When we first started talking about building a family, my wife was very careful about saying a family was the most important thing for her. She was quick to point out that she wanted to build a family as quickly as possible. Now consider this scenario. Imagine we had gone ahead and had children. I am sure she would have been happy. I am sure I would have been happy. We would have lived our lives happily together taking care of our children and eventually seeing them of to marriage. At the age of about 50, we would have begun our lives together. But that is not what happened. And the purpose…

Marriage & Infidelity: Cheating Spouses Can't Hide Their Extramarital Affairs From The Truth™

Image
We all lie. A world without little white lies would be uncivilized. But 99% of us have told bigger lies in our lifespan. For most of us, lies told in our personal life makes us feel bad. However, we still continue to lie and cheat. Few events cause as much turmoil in a marriage as infidelity, which can reduce a marriage to rubble, shatter trust and create a breeding ground for insecurity, mistrust and resentment. Most of us have witnessed affairs among people we know, and some of us even have had affairs ourselves. This kind of thing happens in the real world, and it happens all the time. One third of all married couples admit to having cheated on their mates. Let's not be naïve. That's quite a large number of people taking risks! Affairs begin with two people who find each other interesting and attractive. For whatever reason, the relationship escalates into romance and, finally, into sexual intimacy. People who seek romance and sexual intimacy outside of their primary relati…

Diet and exercise are the two main essentials in making and keeping the figure beautiful. No woman can reduce weight, improve a clumsy and ungainly figure, through exercise alone. Diet comes first. Comparatively few women need fattening. What most need is reduction. FIRST AID FOR THE THIN Yet for those whose figure needs building up and filling out, the following facts should be borned in mind. First, relax mentally. Worry and nervous tension use up calories — the calorie is the unit by which we measure heat and food — very rapidly, and tend to reduce weight below normal. Secondly, sleep enough and breathe fresh air in plenty. Third, exercise, to stimulate the appetite and aid all the organs of the body to do their work.

10 Ways To Extend The Life Of Fresh-Cut Flowers Like a Professional™

Image
1. Florists realize the virtue of cutting flower stems under water before transferring them from bucket to vase. When flower and foliage stems are exposed to air they will immediately begin to seal up inhibiting the absorption of much needed nutrients. Secondly, when fresh cut stems are exposed to air, bubbles of air become trapped in the stems, preventing the steady flow of water to uptake through the stem.

2. Florists and commercial growers use lukewarm water for their cut flowers. The water temperature should be comfortable to the wrist, approximately 100°F to 110°F. Theobject is to facilitate the water and nutrients to get to the head of the flower as quickly as possible. Warm water molecules move faster than cold water molecules and thus will greatly enhance the absorption process. The one exception to this rule is bulb flowers, such as tulips, tend to thrive in cooler water.

3. Florists know that a well balanced preservative solution drastically increases the longevity of cut flow…

Jewelry as a gift has always been a traditional favorite for women. Women love to wear jewelry and the more they have the better.

When you are buying a gift of jewelry, it may help to take along an already-owned piece to compare length. If this is not possible then select a princess length necklace (17- 19 inches in length). This is an excellent choice if you are not certain which strand length is most appropriate.
Another thing to consider before buying jewelry is whether she prefers to wear silver or gold-toned pieces. Sterling silver jewelry is affordable and very versatile.

Find if she is allergic to metal. Jewelry allergy is a common complaint from many people. The main cause of these allergies is the nickel content present in jewelry.
