For more than 50 years, doctors have observed that Mediterranean people are very healthy. They are much less likely, than those in more industrialized countries, to suffer from heart diseases or strokes. They have amongst the lowest rates of chronic diseases and the highest adult life expectancy. Mediterranean diet is said to be very heart healthy. What are their secrets?

 

The Mediterranean Diet Pyramid

The Mediterranean food pyramid is recognized as the “gold standard” eating pattern that promotes life long good health. In 1993, the Oldways Preservation and Exchange Trust, the Harvard School of Public Health, and the European Office of the World Health Organization made the Mediterranean diet even more popular when they came up with the food pyramid called The Mediterranean Diet Pyramid.

Mediterranean Diet Pyramid – Guidelines

1. They eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains

 

The people living in the Mediterranean eat a lot of food from plant sources: fruits, vegetables, potatoes, breads and grains, beans, nuts and seeds. They try to avoid processed food and prefer seasonally fresh and locally grown foods. By doing this, they get most of the healthy micronutrient and antioxidant.

 

Legumes, tomatoes and tomato products are a staple food in the Mediterranean diet. Tomatoes contain lycopene, important in the fight against heart disease and cancer. Mediterranean’s don’t get majority of their calcium from dairy like in the US. Instead they consume most of their calcium from plant foods like dark green vegetables, figs, seeds, almonds, tofu and white beans.

 

Some of the popular vegetables in the Mediterranean diet are: Spinach, Eggplants, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Peppers, Mushrooms, Garlic and Capers Beans.

 

The Mediterranean’s eat fruit for desert instead of cake. Olives, Avocados, Grapes are only some of the fruits that are very much enjoyed in the Mediterranean. If you eat 3-4 fruits every day you will get the antioxidants, crucial in the fight against heart disease and cancer.

 

2.They have nuts for snack

Nuts are a staple food in Mediterranean diet. They are high in healthy monounsaturated fat, the one that does not get stuck in our arteries. Scientific studies have found that almonds and walnuts are the most beneficial for our health. Have a handful of nuts as a snack in your morning break.

 

3. They spice their food with garlic, onions and aromatic herbs

 

Mediterranean herbs flavor everything from meats, soups and stews, to pizza and spaghetti. You can replace salt with garlic and aromatic herbs. Garlic has been found to be a major contributor to the low incidence of high blood pressure in Mediterranean countries. Recent studies have shown that garlic reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, lowers blood pressure and prevents the formation of blood clots and protects our bodies through its antioxidant properties. Onions and other aromatic herbs work very similar to garlic. They contain about 25 active compounds that appear to help combat heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure and cholesterol.

 

4. They eat less of fat cheese, yogurt, eggs and red meat

 

Dairy is not as big a part of the Mediterranean diet as it is of the typical American diet. Sure, yogurt and cheeses are an important part of the Mediterranean cuisine, but still they don’t eat as much because they use it more sparingly as an appetizer or dessert, or in a salad.

 

But cheese and yogurt can be really good for you. They contain a lot of calcium. The downside is that they have a high cholesterol level, but if you choose the low-fat or non-fat versions you will get a lot of the good calcium without the bad fat. The Mediterranean diet recommends 2 servings (or more depending on your needs) per day of dairy foods. A serving equals 1 cup of low-fat or nonfat milk or yogurt or 1 ounce of low-fat cheese.

 

Eggs are consumed moderately in the Mediterranean diet. They only eat 0-4 eggs per week and that includes the amount used in cooking and baking.

 

They prefer fish and poultry over red meat. In fact, they only eat red meat a few times per month. Have fish and sea food two or three times a week. You should try to eat more of salmon, trout and herring because they are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your health. Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids may help against: cardiovascular and heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, inflammation, acne, depression, anxiety, birth defects and miscarriages.

 

5. They prefer olive oil

They don’t eat a lot of butter and margarine. Instead they replace all that saturated fat with olive oil, rich in unsaturated fat and anti-oxidative substances. They really love their olive oil and that is really good since it has many beneficial health effects. It offers protection against heart disease by controlling cholesterol levels and has a beneficial effect on ulcers and gastritis and also lowers the incidence of gallstone formation. In other words, if you want to stay healthy, switch to olive oil!

 

6. They enjoy a glass of wine

They are known to take a glass of wine with meals and studies show that, in some cases, it might be good for your health. If you drink moderately (one glass of wine per day) it may improve your heart, help you lose weight, reduce forgetfulness, boost your immunity and help prevent bone loss. Be aware though, that drinking alcohol should be avoided when it puts the individual or others at risk.

 

7. Their life style is relaxed and sociable

Another important thing to consider, that actually contributes to good health, is their life style. In the Mediterranean, mealtime is not rushed. People usually relax at the table. They share food and conversation with family and friends. All this helps to reduce stress and improve the body’s ability to digest food and absorb nutrients. Stress will slow your metabolism and will make you eat more. More stress means more stored fat in your body. This is why a relaxed life style is so important for your health.

 

Another good habit amongst the Mediterranean’s is their afternoon naps. Scientific studies have showed that taking a nap is very good for you health. Your nap should not be longer than 20 minutes, or you may wake up with a headache. A 15 minute nap at midday will help keep stress away.

 

8. They walk or take their bike

 

Eating a Mediterranean diet and following national recommendations for physical activity are each associated with a reduced risk of death over a five-year period, according to two reports in the Archives of Internal Medicine. The Mediterranean’s enjoy walking, swimming, playing soccer, basketball and tennis. The easiest way of exercise is when you integrate it into your daily activities. For example, walking and bicycling are typical methods of getting from place to place in many parts of the Mediterranean but not so common in the US. There are ways to get around that, though. Get up early and go for a 20-minute walk before breakfast, or try to go for a short walk during your lunch break. Other ways may be to park your car a walking distance from stores, or jump off one bus/train stop earlier, or take the stairs. There are many ways, be creative!

 

To summarize

Focus primarily on eating fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains with daily servings of dried beans, nuts or seeds. Consume fish regularly and only small amounts of red meat. Use garlic, onion and herbs to spice your food and reduce the salt. Olive oil should be your main source of fat, instead of butter or margarine. When you crave for a dessert don’t go for the high-fat, high-sugar desserts and bakery products, choose fruits. Eat slow with friends and family and take a short nap. Enjoy your daily walks!

Glaucoma is a medical condition in which your optic nerve gets damaged. The damage to your vision is most often caused by abnormally high pressure in your eye. This increase in pressure can cause irreversible damage to the optic nerve, which is responsible for sending visual signals to your brain. If the injury worsens over time, glaucoma may end up causing permanent vision loss or even total blindness within a few years. As it is not yet possible to reverse vision loss from glaucoma, early detection and treatment are crucial.

 

Glaucoma Causes

As stated above, glaucoma is a condition that manifests as a result of the optic nerve injury caused by the increased intraocular pressure. As the optic nerve gradually deteriorates, potential blind spots may begin to develop in your visual field, which ultimately worsens your vision. The elevated intraocular pressure is caused by the excess buildup of a fluid that continuously flows in your eye, known as aqueous humor. Usually, this fluid flows out of your eyeball through a mesh-like channel and drains out of your eye through a specialized tissue called the trabecular meshwork. This structure is present at the angle where the cornea and iris meet. Two phenomena can cause an increase in the intraocular pressure, either fluid itself is being overproduced, or the drainage system of the aqueous humor isn’t working efficiently. Consequently, the liquid is unable to flow out of the eye at a standard rate and leads to an abnormal increase in eye pressure.

glaucoma diagram

Glaucoma appears to have a hereditary component. In other words, a family history of glaucoma generally puts one at a higher risk of developing the disease. You usually don’t get its symptoms until later in life.

Other potential but less-common causes of glaucoma include a chemical or direct blunt injury to your eye, blocked blood vessels in your eye, severe eye infection, and inflammatory conditions. Also, eye surgery to improve other medical conditions can aggravate glaucoma in your eye, but it is very rare.

 

Risk Factors

Glaucoma is a condition that mostly affects people over 40, although children and even infants can have it. Below, we have listed some of the potential risk factors known to be associated with a high incidence of developing glaucoma. You are more likely to be affected by it if you:

  • Are over 40
  • Have already a poor vision
  • Have diabetes
  • Have a family history of glaucoma
  • Have had an injury to your eye
  • Use cortisone (steroids)
  • Already have a high eye pressure
  • Nearsightedness (high degree of myopia)
  • Have thinner corneas
  • Black racial ancestry
  • Are already suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure, sickle cell anemia, or diabetes

 

Types of Glaucoma

Open-Angle Glaucoma

Open-angle glaucoma is the popular form of the disease. The drainage angle between iris and cornea remains open, but the trabecular meshwork gets partially blocked. As a result, the eye pressure gradually increases, which ultimately puts a strain on the optic nerve. Once the pressure exceeds a specific safety limit, the optic nerve starts to deteriorate. This whole process happens very slowly, and you may end up losing your sight before being aware of the problem.

Close-Angle Glaucoma

Closed-angle glaucoma develops when the drainage angle formed by the iris and cornea gets blocked by the forward bulging of iris. Consequently, the aqueous humor is unable to circulate through the eyeball freely and thus increasing the pressure. Some people may naturally have narrow drainage angles; this can significantly increase the risk of developing close-angle glaucoma. This type of glaucoma may occur suddenly, and acute close-angle glaucoma is considered a medical emergency.

Normal-Tension Glaucoma

In this version of glaucoma, the optic nerve is damaged even though your eyeball pressure is normal. The exact cause behind it is still unknown. A likely reason can be that your optic nerve is highly sensitive, or your optic nerve has a limited supply of blood. The less blood flow to your optic nerve may cause atherosclerosis – a condition in which arteries get fatty deposits (plaque) and impair normal blood flow.

Low-Tension Glaucoma

In low-tension glaucoma, patients suffer from optic nerve damage and vision loss even when their intraocular optic pressure is within a healthy range. A potential risk factor for this type of glaucoma may be low blood pressure.

Congenital Glaucoma

The congenital type of glaucoma is present in infants born with defects in the drainage angle. As a result, the aqueous fluid is prevented from draining properly and exiting from the eye normally. The usual manifestation of congenital glaucoma is the cloudy cornea, severe light sensitivity, and watery eyes.

Secondary Glaucoma

This variant of glaucoma develops as a result of complications due to certain medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Other eye conditions like uveitis and cataracts also pose a significant risk for the development of secondary glaucoma. Moreover, the side effects of other medications or trauma to the eye may also play a role in the potential development of secondary glaucoma.

Pigmentary glaucoma

In some cases, pigment granules from the iris detach and build up in the drainage channels. As a result, this buildup of pigment granules gradually blocks or slows down the fluid exiting the eye. This can significantly elevate the intraocular pressure and cause similar symptoms like glaucoma. Physical activities like running and jogging can aggravate this condition and facilitate the deposition of the pigment granules in the drainage angle, resulting in the intermittent intraocular pressure elevations.

Exfoliative Glaucoma

This is another type of glaucoma that can occur in either closed-angle or open-angle glaucoma. Deposits of flaky materials on the lens surface and in the drainage angle of the eye characterize exfoliative glaucoma. As a result of this accumulation, the drainage system is blocked, which slows down or completely cuts of the exit of aqueous fluid from the eye. Thus, raising the intraocular pressure. This type of glaucoma is more prevalent in older adults and people of Scandinavian descent.

 

Symptoms

Many glaucoma patients have no apparent symptoms, especially in the early stages of the disease. Hence, regular visits to your eye doctor are crucial as they can diagnose and treat your glaucoma before you have a long-term vision loss. However, if a patient suffers from a severe or advanced form of glaucoma, like acute closed-angle glaucoma – it may manifest as:

  • Severe throbbing eye pain
  • Tunnel vision
  • Eye redness
  • Halos around lights
  • Patchy vision
  • Dilated pupils
  • Blurred or foggy vision
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting

 

Glaucoma test and diagnosis

Glaucoma screening is a part of a standard, regular eye examinations. Ophthalmologists use intraocular pressure testing and evaluation of the optic nerves to diagnose glaucoma. A complete personal medical history and family history are also crucial for an accurate diagnosis of glaucoma. Your doctor may perform several tests, including:

  • Visual Field Test – it checks for areas of vision loss in your eye
  • Gonioscopy – inspection of the drainage angle in the eye
  • Tonometry – it measures the intraocular pressure of the eyes
  • Pachymetry – it measures the corneal thickness
  • Imaging Tests & Dilated Eye Examination – this tests for the optic nerve damage

Treatment

Conservative treatment for glaucoma typically consists of eye pressure-reducing medications, usually in the form of eye drops. If a patient does not respond to this therapy, or if their glaucoma is particularly severe, surgery may be used. The primary aim of surgery is to bring down the intraocular pressure inside the eye. There are numerous surgical treatment options available:

  1. Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS): This procedure reduces or eliminates the need for glaucoma medications. It requires only tiny surgical incisions and causes very little trauma to eye as compared to conventional glaucoma surgical methods. The target is to increase the outflow of the aqueous humor from the eye to decrease the intraocular pressure and minimize the risk of damage to the optic nerve.
  2. Trabeculoplasty: A laser beam is used to clear the clogged drainage angle so that the fluid can quickly exit the eye without raising the intraocular pressure.
  3. Viscocanalostomy (Filtering Surgery): This procedure is opted for when all other treatment options fail, including laser surgery. Channels within the eyeball are opened up through surgery to improve the drainage of fluid.
  4. Aqueous Shunt Implant: This method is used for children or those with secondary glaucoma. To facilitate the fluid drainage, a small silicone tube is inserted into the eye to prevent the intraocular pressure from raising to abnormal limits.

PREVENTION

The following steps can help you detect glaucoma in the early stages; this is very important in preventing the disease or slowing down its progress:

  1. Regular Eye Examinations: Comprehensive routine eye examination in the detection of glaucoma in its early stages, even before it has caused significant damage to your optic nerve. The frequency of proper eye examination increases as the age increases because of the higher risk of the disease.
  2. Know your family’s eye health history: Family history plays a significant role in this disease. Glaucoma tends to run in families. If your family member suffers from this disease, you are automatically at an increased risk of developing this disease. You will need to visit for frequent screening tests to ensure you’re safe.
  3. Exercise safely: Regular exercise is essential for everyone. However, if you are prone to developing glaucoma, moderate, and regular exercise, can help prevent glaucoma by lowering the intraocular pressure.
  4. Take prescribed eye drops regularly: The use of prescription eye drops is very crucial for the treatment and management of glaucoma. The eye drops can significantly reduce eye pressure. To ensure maximal efficacy, strictly follow the medication plan your ophthalmologist prescribed you.
  5. Wear eye protection: Another significant cause of glaucoma is external trauma. So ensure that your eyes are protected at all times. Wear eye protection equipment if you are in a place where you can expect potential eye injury, i.e., using power tools, high-risk sports like in enclosed courts, etc.

This article is designed to give readers guidelines on how they can improve their life activities to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It includes major aspects that are considered to be part of a lifestyle that leads to good health. In addition to the guidelines about what people should do for healthy living, the article mentions some of the suggestions about avoiding some activities (the don’ts) that lead to an unhealthy life.

 “Healthy living” means both mental health as well as physical health when kept in equilibrium in a person. In many cases, mental health states and physical health states correlate with each other, so that a change in any state directly has an impact on the other. So, some of the guidelines will include suggestions for psychological “healthy living.”

Eat Healthy and Complete your Nutrition Levels.

Healthy Diet
Healthy Diet

We all should eat healthy food to maintain our body’s health as we all have different nutrition requirements, which depend on our age, sex, and physical activity. For example, a newborn requires four-hourly feeding until they grow because of the massive need for nutrition and eventually start taking solid food. Within a few years, they develop normal patterns of eating three times per day. If we want to make our life healthy, we should eat healthy items that fulfill our required nutrition levels.

Eat three times a day breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a calculated amount of calories; it is very important to remember that dinner shouldn’t be the heaviest among these three meals.

Mostly the food consists of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat milk products or fat-free products. Meats like fish and chicken are a good protein that should be added to your diet in a required quantity. Avoid having high fats, cholesterol, and sugar as much as you can. Divide your food into portions and control the size of portions; eat small portions first, which can barely satisfy your hunger and then stop eating and, after some time, start with another portion.

Healthy snacks can be added to your meal plans if they consist of fruits, grains, and nuts. Try to avoid soda bottles and especially those containing high sugars because of unwanted massive calories in them, and “Diet Drinks” do also not consider right for your health as they make you hungry and can increase your food consumption. Avoid taking large meals just before sleeping; it will cause Gastrointestinal disturbances and can because of weight gain.

If your angry and in depression eating more is not a solution for that, you should consider this. Avoid giving children snacks with high sugar value in them. In hot weather, especially in summers, try to eat less and organized. Vegetarian life should be promoted in order to lose weight. Vegetarians are at high risk of being nutrition deficient, especially iron deficiency, so they should visit their physician to have alternative methods.

Stop eating undercooked food and keep monitoring your fat and glucose levels in daily routine.

People who have a busy schedule and unpredictable workload should have their breakfast, lunch, and dinner in routine and, if not possible, have to have proper healthy snacks.

Exercise and Physical Activity

Exercise and physical activity are the key factors in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and have the energy for your work. Lack of physical activity or exercise is the route of obesity, which is the main factor of an unhealthy lifestyle. On the other hand, proper physical exercise will help your body to have a strength in it and prevent age-related muscle weaknesses, improve your balance, flexibility, and endurance, and decrease the risk of falls in the elderly. Regular exercise can help prevent CHD (coronary heart disease), stroke, diabetes, obesity, and hypertension. The weight-bearing exercises will help you to strengthen your bones and prevent osteoporosis.

Some exercises can be helpful in chronic arthritis and improve your capacity to perform daily work like driving your car, lifting things, and opening jars. Exercise in a routine will help you build more confidence and increase self-esteem, decrease your stress and anxiety, make your mood better, and improve mental health.

At least thirty to sixty minutes of moderate exercise is recommended, generally including walking and running 3-5 days a week. Most desirable health benefits come from exercising every day of the week. Exercise can be done in further smaller sections of 10-15 minutes each for convince.

Physical Activity and Exercise
Physical Activity and Exercise

Always start the exercise with less amount of workload and then gradually increase its load or time. For example, start with 10 minutes of running and increase 1 minute every day. A gradual increase in exercise won’t affect your muscles and will strengthen them instead of the sudden load that may tear your muscles and leads to muscular injuries and spasms. There are no age limits to start exercise; in fact, in extreme ages like in the 70s, you can start an exercise, and it will help you keep your body strong. Any kind of exercise resistance-based, aerobics, simple walking, swimming, weight lifting, yoga, etc. are helpful for everybody. Children also need exercise; for them, they should play outside and must take part in extracurricular activities like sports and dancing. Many types of sports are there for children, which helps them to increase their metabolism and keep them energetic, but the only precaution for them is don’t overdo any sport; it may cause injuries. Parents should do observe their children during sports events to minimize any chance of injuries. People should consult doctors before starting any hardcore exercise, or they can start walking without any consultations because men over 40 years and women over 50 are in wear and tear stage of their life they should special care of it.

People who have certain diseases like asthma, diabetes, MI, and epilepsy should always consult their physicians before starting any exercise. People who do rough exercises with these diseases may develop chest pain or angina and breathlessness. People who are at high risk of developing myocardial infarction having a positive family history, high cholesterol levels, high age, and smoking history should always consult their doctors because heavy exercise will increase chances of worsening their condition to hospitalization but on the other hand physical activity and moderate exercise with proper prescription will decrease their chances of having extreme results.

Physical activity is also very helpful in controlling diabetes type II and obesity. Physical inactivity will lead to weight gain, which is known to be the mother of all illnesses.

 

Mental health

A healthy lifestyle is actually formed by the health of both the physical and mental components of the body. So, mental health as a whole is equally significant in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I am going to discuss a few points which will help you maintain mental health which will automatically lead you to a healthy lifestyle:

Mental Health
Mental Health
  • Get enough sleep regularly studies suggest that the following by age groups that is 14-18 hours for a newborn till the age of 2 months, 13-14 hours for a baby of age 3-11 months, 13-17 hours for a child of age 1-3 years, 12-13 hours for a child of 3-5 years, 10-11 hours for a child of 5-10 years, 8-10 hours for the age of 10-17 years. Those who are older than this age should sleep 7-9.5 hours daily, including elderly groups of people, including naps.
  • Try something new to energize yourself and get a break of your calculated daily schedule and eat new things, use a different route to work, and attend events and gathering to relax.
  • Just like your body, your mind also needs to work out, try to do mind exercises with puzzle games, readings, etc. Focus on something intensely and complete that segment of it over some time and repeat it in a few hours, then take a break and do something relaxing to cheer you up.
  • Try to involve people from other categories and spend some time with them and discuss with them.
  • Have a pleasant time in your busy routine in which you can do whatever you want to do and relax your mind properly.
  • The most important thing is to try to say “NO” when you actually don’t want to do and saying no can actually save you from many problems and build confidence inside you.
  • Always have a bundle of friends around you and develop a habit of making new friends and discuss your problems openly with then and reach out to help others.

Smoking Caseation

If you want to quit smoking, first set a date for caseation. If possible, plan it with your friend to quit smoking with you. It’s the best method, if applicable. If you choose a date that’s too far will discourage you from attaining the goal, try to set dare Notice when and why you smoke. Change the routine of your smoking by keeping your cigarettes in a different spot, change the hand of your smoking. Don’t do other things when you’re smoking. Think about the adverse effects of smoking when you smoke.

Has the quarantine got you down but, your weight up? Are you tired of hearing your friends constantly talk about keto? Does it look like your beach-body might not make it this year?

Well, if the answer to most of those questions is yes, then you my friend are in the right place. We’re listing down all the latest fitness trends aimed at getting you back to your healthy, happy self!

First things first. What even is a healthy weight or the ideal weight? If you ever google the word BMI Calculator, you will find multiple websites giving you a chance to calculate your ideal weight for yourself.

BMI or Body Mass Index states your ideal weight by using your weight and height. Having a BMI in the range of 18.5 – 24.9 is usually considered healthy and, anything above 25 is considered overweight1.

As the whole world undergoes a shift in their lifestyle, here’s what people everywhere are doing to shed all that quarantine weight!

1. Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been around for centuries and it’s believed it was used as a wound cleaner by Hippocrates some 2,000 years ago. In recent years, apple cider vinegar has gained popularity for its fat-dissolving property. The Acetic Acid in Apple Cider Vinegar is believed to help reduce belly weight, increase metabolism2, reduce appetite3, and prevent obesity2. Doctors recommend taking 1-2 teaspoons or 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water daily to aid weight loss.

However, the benefits don’t come without a few drawbacks. Other than the rotten apples like smell and vinegar taste, there’s also a risk of tooth enamel erosion. Nausea, reflux, and an upset stomach are also symptoms people are known to experience from consuming ACV.

However, the apple cider vinegar gummies are a complete game-changer as they bypass these drawbacks. The gummies are believed to contain antioxidants and are infused with superfoods like pomegranates and beetroots. 2 gummies are believed to be equal to 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and contain all the benefits of ACV.

2. Chloe Ting

Chloe Ting 1

Watch out Jillian Michaels, there’s a new fitness instructor in town and she promises rock hard abs in just 2 weeks. Chloe Ting is the latest fitness instructor to have people hooked to at-home workouts. The 34-year-old fitness enthusiast has a staggering 10.5 million subscribers on YouTube and promises her free workout program will help you shred all that belly fat in just 2 weeks4.

With hundreds of positive reviews, it seems this is the perfect workout routine for those of us stuck in isolation with no access to gyms or spin classes. Surviving a pandemic is not an easy task and can take a toll on both your mental and physical health. The disruption in your normal everyday routine and the work-from-home situation definitely does not make maintaining a healthy weight easy. Thus, it seems like the best we can do is grab our yoga mats, put on YouTube, and get our sweat on with Chloe Ting!

3. HILIT

High-Intensity Interval Training, better known as HIIT, has been known to be an effective workout routine practiced by multiple celebrities such as David Beckham, Britney Spears, and many more worldwide. The 20 to 30-minute-long sessions are believed to cause weight loss, build muscle, and, boost the cardio-respiratory health of an individual5. However, these sessions tend to involve lots of jumping which can cause extra pressure on your joints and make people prone to injuries. Moreover, this is not the best-suited workout routine for those with back and knee pains due to the high-intensity exercises.

It seems there might be a lighter, more joint-friendlier version of HIIT called High-Intensity Low-Impact Training or, HILIT. Similar to HIIT the sessions are 20 to 30 minutes long comprising of low-impact exercises that achieve the same result without any added pressure on the joints. Hence, HILIT is also safe for people with knee or back pains.

A typical HILIT session involves performing a certain exercise for 20-30 seconds, then taking a 10-15 second break and repeating this for eight or more sets. This steady-state workout helps keep your heart rate in the fat-burning zone and ensures maximum calories burnt. However, HILIT cases aren’t easier than the more famous HIIT classes but, they don’t require you to do multiple burpees and we can totally get down with that.

 

4. Barre Workouts

As a child, did you ever dream of being a ballerina? Did you practice walking on your tiptoes and imagined to be dancing on stage? Did you ever want to take up ballet lessons, but your parents never let you? Well, it looks like you might have a chance of pursuing those dreams with the help of barre workouts.

Barre workouts are named after the basic ballet equipment, the ballet ‘barre’, or bar. It seems to be all the rage right now for its fun, slow-paced, low-intensity sessions perfect for beginners looking to maintain a healthy weight while imagining themselves as ballerinas.

The workout combines Ballet, Pilates, and yoga exercises to help you achieve toned muscles, an improved posture and, a stronger core. While holding on to the barre for balance, students are instructed to perform strength exercises focusing on a specific group of muscles. While the movements may be small, they require one to tighten or contract their muscles to help improve endurance.

While traditional barre sessions are carried out in ballet studios, virtual classes require the use of a chair, some light weights, or, in most cases, no equipment at all. We can’t promise you’ll become the ultimate ballet dancer after the sessions, but what we can promise is a leaner, more flexible you.

 

5. Intermittent Fasting

 

It seems as technology gets smarter by the day, humans are getting lazier and lazier. Everyone seems to be in search of the ultimate shortcut to achieving maximum weight loss with zero physical movements. The ultimate dream! And, it seemed people had found their answer in the form of Keto, a low-carb, high-fat diet believed to show results within days. However, Keto can have quite a lot of side effects such as constipation, hair loss, and in rare cases, pancreatitis6. Moreover, it’s hard to fit in a diet with so many restrictions onto a busy work schedule.

Intermittent fasting (IF) is, however, less of a diet and more of an eating pattern, that’s been slowly gaining popularity among the masses for helping them achieve results at a slow but steady pace without any crazy diet restrictions, calorie counting or hardcore exercises.

Intermittent fasting requires that you stay in a fasted state for over 12 hours and only eat during your eating window. A typical eating window in intermittent fasting can last anywhere between 4-12 hours depending on whether you’re a beginner or an expert. It is believed that a body burns more fat when in a fasting state. During the fasting period individuals can consume water, green tea, black tea, or coffee but, should avoid any sugar or creamers.

The 16/8 method is the simplest IF method mostly followed by beginners. It involves fasting for 16 hours and having an 8-hour long eating window.

Other fasting patterns commonly followed are

  • 18/6 method – 18 hour fast with a 6-hour eating window
  • 20/4 method – 20 hour fast with a 4-hour long eating window, mostly practiced by people who have been doing intermittent fasting for a while
  • OMAD – One Meal a Day, where people fast throughout the day and only have a single meal which is usually scheduled around dinner time

Intermittent fasting is believed to aid weight loss7 due to lowered insulin levels, increased growth hormone levels, and an overall lower intake of calories.

While people on IF don’t need to stick to any dietary restrictions during the eating window, it’s important to note that it only shows results when an individual consumes a healthy, balanced diet and does not go over their calorie requirement.

Being overweight makes us look chubby and reduces our overall look. But if you are overall good and have fatty tummy then it is also something annoying.

Now, you don’t have to worry anymore as here I am going to tell you in detail how to lose belly fat in 3 days naturally without exercise.

All the tips or ways which I am going to share with you are 100% safe and have no side effects and you can implement them right away.

Watch this beautiful infographic before learning my cool tips.

7 Strategies To Lose Weight Without Counting Calories

How to Lose Belly Fat in 3 Days Naturally Without Exercise?

Read them one by one to understand properly.

1. Stay Motivated

Motivation is the first thing that you need to get before you start. Every time you look at your belly and see unpleasant results, you need to get motivated so that you can change something that you are taking too long to deal with and achieve the right results.

What you are seeing in the mirror is likely influenced by food intake, water, and your perception. Your motivation can accelerate the process of burning belly fat and eventually have better results.

Losing belly fat is not a one-day process and therefore if you don’t have a source of motivation, you are destined to fail.

Measure your body fat every other day to see whether you are proceeding well. The other thing is that you should measure your waist from time to time. Take pictures and usually ask your friends if they notice any changes in your belly.

2. Avoid Distractors while you are Eating

The fact is that if you are distracted when eating, you’ll not be able to gauge how much food you have eaten. For this reason, avoid eating while you are watching TVs or watching a movie on your computer. It is very difficult to keep track of the amount of food you have eaten at each point.

If you are one of those people who take their meals while watching TVs or getting entertainment from other electronic distractors, then you have to give this up first.

One review that was conducted to analyze existing studies on this matter found that people who eat while watching are likely to overeat. It also established that absent-mildness when eating can influence your food intake for the rest of the day. People who are distracted while eating end up consuming 25% more calories than those who pay closer attention when taking their meals.

3. Peppermint Tea

Peppermint tea has several benefits that you shouldn’t miss at all cost. The first reason why you are advised to take peppermint tea on your move to reduce belly fat is that it helps digestion and also has some positive impacts on the body’s metabolism.

Peppermint also reduces the likelihood of getting stomach gas build-up. Prepare peppermint tea and drink one or two cups every morning until there are some visible results.

4. Eat smaller Portions more Often

One mistake that people make is taking large amounts of foods all at once. Although this is sometimes inevitable, it is likely to impact directly on your belly size.

Instead of taking large amounts of foods all at once, you can just spread out your foods into several smaller portions throughout the day. It is likely to keep your metabolism up and at the same time reduce blood sugars. It will also reduce the temptation of eating more.

5. Never Skip Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is a good way to kick-start your metabolism in the morning. It will also keep you fuller for longer until you are ready for the next meal. Taking a rich breakfast can be beneficial even when you are trying to lose weight. Just focus on Lean Protein such as Eggs and Low –fat Greek Yoghurt.

6. Replace your usual snack with Pineapple or Papaya

Pineapples have a very useful enzyme which is known as Bromelain which aids in the digestion process by breaking down proteins in the stomach. It can as well help to break down fat in the process of producing energy.

If you are not comfortable with Pineapple, then you can replace it with Papaya. It is also a very great way of activating your body to burn more belly fat.

7. Watch Your Sodium Intake

Sometimes we eat too much salt and it can have some impacts on the metabolism process. What this means is that you should closely monitor your sodium intake. You should either reduce the amount of salt you put in your food and at the same time avoid processed foods.

Most of the processed foods contain too much salt. Too much of it is regarded as the first culprits of bloating. If you want your belly fat to reduce significantly within 3 days, then ensure your sodium intake doesn’t exceed 6 grams per day.

8. Stop Chewing Gums

There are several benefits of chewing gums especially if you don’t want to concentrate too much on a situation that distracts your mind and also when you want to keep your breath minty fresh.

Although everyone will agree that chewing gums have the above and many more benefits, there is evidence that it can impact on your move to eliminate belly fat. Most of the gums contain sugars and alcohol which can lead to bloating.

9. Drink Water Regularly

Water has uncountable benefits to the human body. It can keep you hydrated and also help you eat less and lose some weight. If you drink enough water before your meals, then you will minimize the quantity of food you are likely to eat.

Studies show that drinking half a litter minutes before your foods will reduce hunger and reduce calorie intake. All that you are supposed to do is to replace calorie-rich drinks such as:

  • Juices
  • Porridge
  • Sodas with water

Do it more often to get significant results.

10. Get Enough Sleep

One mistake that most of the people make is to neglect the benefits of getting enough sleep. When it comes to health, sleeping for the recommended time is a good way of giving your body enough time to rest and reconstruct.

The fact is that lack of sleep can distract the functionality of leptin which is the appetite-regulating hormone. Chronic sleep deprivation may also lead to cancer and several other complications.

What this means for you is that you are going to have irregular eating patterns which will directly impact on your weight. For this reason, you have to get enough sleep every day. Sleep for at least 8 hours every day.

11. Avoid Stress

Excess stress may also distract several appetite-regulating hormones and cause more trouble. Although there’s no satisfactory evidence that stress can cause weight gain, it is one of the culprits.

There is evidence that most of the people become overeaters when they feel a lot of pressure. This happens due to your fight-and-flight response.

The reality of the matter is that when your body reaches a certain stress level, it does want it feels like doing and overeating is one of them. What this means is that you should be able to manage your stress if you want to lose belly fat in 3 days naturally without exercise.

12. Avoid Alcohol

Most of the people in the world won’t go for a week or two without taking one or two bottles of beer or whiskey. Although this is one of the best ways of releasing your work stress on a weekend, alcohol can lead to a couple of health problems especially if consumed in large amounts. There’s satisfactory evidence that excessive consumption of alcohol and belly fat have a close correlation.

There are some of the researches that link excessive consumption of alcohol to increased risk of central obesity which means that you’ll have excessive fat storage in the waist.

What you are supposed to do in case you want to lose belly fat within a very short period of time is to cut on alcohol consumption. This doesn’t mean that you have to give it up altogether but if you can be able to do that, well and good.

13. Eat Healthily

You are what you eat! True, if you eat a lot of junk food, then you should expect the results to show within a very short period of time.

There’s a very common saying that:

Abs are built in the kitchen!

What you prepare in your kitchen is what you are going to eat and the results will show brightly within a short period of time. If you want to lose belly fat without exercise, then at least avoid processed foods and opt for whole, unprocessed foods.

14. Eat More Protein

Protein is necessary for the human body for growth and development. The fact that I mentioned earlier, you should avoid some foods doesn’t mean you have to depreciate your body some of the nutrients.

Most of the scientists argue that proteins have a higher thermic effect than any other food. Your body has an easy time burning energy-producing proteins than it does to carbs and fat. I bet this is the reason why high protein diets are beneficial in burning belly fat.

15. Drink Hot Water and Lemon

It is also recommended that you try hot water and lemon in the morning. It is a good way to revive your metabolism process and the digestive system.

Lemon juice also gives you an energy boost. It can help you greatly when you want to boost the energy metabolism process. It will initiate your body to burn more fat. What this means is that you should swap your morning coffees with lemon juice or drinking hot water and lemon.

Final Words!

If you follow the above-mentioned tips you will see some amazing improvements and you will be able to lose belly fat in 3 days naturally without exercise.

For some of us who don’t get good terms with long hair or even those that already chopped their hair into lobs, bobs or even to full shave, hair extensions are the only way to get that long hair.

In fact, hair extension is a very common thing for celebrities all over the world. Because it’s a good way to change your way the way you want or even depending on the occasion, you also have to get a few extensions even if you are not a famous folk.

Though, before you get to this extent, there are few things you should know. Additionally, there are several options that are available in the market today and hence you should be extra careful when shopping for a perfect hair extension.

Here are some of the things you should know.

hair extensions

1. There are Permanent and Non-Permanent Hair Extensions

Actually, this is the first thing that you should know. It will help you determine the amount of money you want to spend on this and at the same time make you fully aware of the pros and cons of what you are going for.

However, the right hair extensions will depend on several factors including the final look you want, the type of your hair and of course your budget. This comes into play because a permanent hair extension should be fitted by a specialist while your non-permanent ones can be easily fitted at home using tape in hair extensions.

2. Watch Out for Fake and Real Hair

The other thing I thought you should know is that you can end up getting real or fake hair in the market. Actually, hair extensions are made from either human hair or synthetic hair. This difference also impacts the price of each type.

If you want a hair extension that will really enhance your looks and at the same time stay longer, then you should go for real human hair. If otherwise, you should go for cheaper synthetic hair extensions.

3. Their Prices Vary

The prices of hair extensions vary greatly depending on several factors. This depends on the quality of the hair you are going for and eventually the method of fitting you choose.

The prices may range from a few hundred dollars to even a thousand dollar. However, in most of the cases, their prices may range from $75 to $300 on average.

4. Hair Extensions Need Some Maintenance

The fact is that hair extension needs some care to keep them looking natural. The level of maintenance will depend on the style and kind of hair extensions you go for.

However, everybody should have a hair care regimen to take care of the scalp under the extension and the natural hair. It needs washing but still, it needs enough time before you wash it. The wisest decision to make here is to wait for two days after the fitting to wash them.

5. Color Match

When you are buying hair extensions, you should make sure you are getting the perfect color match. What this means is that you should get the right color for your hair extensions.

In this case, you need to color match with the ends of your locks and not the roots. You should as well go for a color that is most prominent in your natural hair color.

6. Good Extensions shouldn’t Cause any Damage

Lastly, if you have good hair extensions, they will not cause any damage to your natural hair. This is one of the things that people don’t know.

If you notice that the hair extensions you have are causing any damages, then you should let them go.

D-Drol is one of the currently available prohormones in the market. However, over the course, a question comes up whether this prohormone works or not or whether it is better than several other similar products available in the market today. For this reason, we spent enough time trying to research and find answers to the above questions.

Although there are varying results and claims about its effectiveness, there’s still some of the people out there who needs more information about it.

This pre-workout supplement was manufactured by 4Everfit super DrolCompany which is a trusted manufacturer of safe and effective prohormones. The manufacturer claims that this is the best prohormone available in the market today and I have several reasons to believe that. They also encourage the users to expect muscle gain in terms of size and strength after they use it.

D-Drol Review

According to the manufacturer, this prohormone is associated with various benefits. Some of them include:

  • Facilitating the growth of lean muscles
  • Enhances muscle endurance
  • They also claim that this prohormone increases energy levels and strength.
  • It also enhances protein synthesis
  • And lastly helps to boost appetite.

Although the product has several associated benefits, there are a few drawbacks which are listed below.

  • Limited availability
  • The other thing is that there are fewer customer reviews on the site. For this reason, most of the people are still not convinced by the manufacturer’s opinions.
  • There are also a couple of side effects with some of them being severe and others minor. You may encounter stomach upsets and hypersensitivity reactions and allergies to the ingredients used.

However, the majority of the people who have used this prohormone claims that they saw significant results early enough. This shows that D-Drol is a quality product with assured effectiveness.

Compared to other prohormones available in the market today, this product is better in terms of effectiveness and the reduced side effects. It provides an effective pre-workout formula. The other thing is that this product is manufactured by a recognized company that has for the years been providing safer and effective prohormones to the market.

The product also comes with a liver support complex in its ingredients. This is what makes it stand out among other similar products in the market.

We have also spent some time to check customer reviews in other five prohormones available today and found out that although some others may be effective, their results take a longer time to be visible. Some other people also report severe side effects when using some of the other prohormones that are available today.

Key Takeaway…

Although there are limited reviews in D-Drol official website, there is enough evidence that this product works better. In my opinion, D-Drol is the most effective prohormone available in the market today.
