2 foods you thought were healthy but actually are not

I consider the path into being really healthy a long journey. Why? Because there are clearly hits and misses along the way to getting healthy. I honestly consider this to be normal.

The problem is when you identify you are doing something wrong and actually do not do anything to fix it so, since I want you to actually fix the issues you may find along the path to getting healthy, I want to show you which are some of the foods that are actually sabotaging you instead of making you healthier.

Some foods may actually deceit you into thinking they are healthy when they actually aren’t and here is where I want to help you in sorting out the good from the bad and actually make choices that are truly helping your health instead of harming it.

Avoid all those low fat foods at all costs!

You may think that just because you are buying something that is low fat you are actually avoiding getting fat at all right? Well, think again because you might be achieving the opposite thing.

Think about it, you might be getting a product that is indeed fat free as they are advertised but, the problem is that food cannot be tasteless because otherwise, people will probably not get it so, people that make these products need to find a way to make their food taste better. This is done by adding a bunch of stuff to compensate and one of them is sugar!

Fruit Juice

You might think you are doing everything right by eating fruits and veggies at all times but, there is something you need to watch out when it comes to fruits.

If you are actually thinking of making all those juice fruits, unless they are sugar free, you are actually sabotaging your healthy eating routine.

So, I am not saying you should avoid fruits but, you definitely need to eat them smartly.

 

How do I know if I am dehydrated? Here are some signs you need to look for!

There are some signs that are clearly seen by anyone when it comes to our body. We need to learn to listen to our bodies in order for us to take all the necessary steps if there is anything wrong with our body!

Now, I can understand that sometimes, we are too full handling all the curve balls that life throws at us and we can sometimes overlook stuff that are wrong with our body.

But, we need to start hearing and seeing the signs our body gives us to prevent any disease we may have from getting worse and if you also want to save a bit of money, treating any issues your health may have ahead of time will definitely guarantee this.

If you start feeling a bit light headed, then…

You are probably and most likely dehydrated. This is one of the clearest ways our body talks to us. Why? You cannot just overlook feeling dizzy and keep going with your life like nothing happened.

So, if you start feeling light headed a lot, and you already had breakfast for example, this might be a sign your water intake is not where it should be.

Your urine is really yellow

Ok even though urine is supposed to be yellow, there is a limit as to how yellow it should be. If you go to the bathroom and start to notice your urine is getting darker and darker by the passing days, you are probably dehydrated as usually the color of urine should be like a light yellow.

Your mouth feels as dry as ever

This one is kind of obvious. I mean if you are not getting enough water, how do you expect your mouth to feel the way it should which is wet? All jokes aside, truly, if you mouth feels this way, then you are probably once again, not getting enough water.

Usually doctors recommend that our water intake is around 8 glasses of water per day and remember, do not over do it because this can affect you as well.

What happens if I do not do proper maintenance of my house’s gutter?

I know, being an adult is not the greatest thing sometimes but, we all need to suck it up and go with the flow. If you own a house, you already know that lots of maintenance needs to be done and if you forget the smallest detail when it comes to maintenance, you may have some serious consequences because of that!

So, one of the things that definitely has consequences if you do not clean it is: your gutter. Why? I will show you just that in the following post so you better keep reading!

Your roof will probably start to leak

What could be worse than you sleeping and getting woken up in the middle of the night by a constant water leakage coming from your roof? This is what happens when you do not do something as simple as removing leaves from your gutter to keep it as clean as it can possibly be.

So, if you want to avoid spending lots of money having to get your roof fixed and probably remodeled since there is so much damage to it, get up your butt and start doing something as simple as cleaning your gutter!

Your landscape will probably start to suffer some damage as well

Your gutter is supposed to be keeping too much water away from your beautiful garden as it is retaining water so, do you actually think your backyard is not going to get flooded if you are not keeping your gutter clean? Well, think again because you could not be more wrong!

You will get nasty insects and animals in your roof and gutter

This one is kind of obvious. At least according to my point of view. Birds are always looking for places to settle so, if they see a dirty, nasty roof then, how can you not expect for birds to see this as their potential house. So, unless you want your house and your roof to be filled with noisy birds, keep your gutter clean using any type of gutter cleaners.

Top 3 hairstyles for weddings in 2017

If you are ever planning a wedding or maybe thinking of attending one, you just KNOW having a hairstyle that is on point is key for you to successfully take the best pictures and update all our profile pics on social media.

But, this is not easily achieved if you do not do your homework correctly. And since usually people only get married once (at least according to my Cinderella way of thinking) you need to get the hairstyle you want right as you only get one chance!

So, if you are planning on having a wedding or attending one this year, these are the hairstyles you should be trying so that you can be as trendy and fashionable as you can be without looking like an 80s teenager with a perm in all your wedding pictures!

1.Keep it messy and floral

I just love this wedding trend and I hope it lasts as long as it can. A few years ago, the slicker the hair, the better it was but now, the messier it looks, the better.

And the best part of this style is that you get that tangled princess vibe adding a bunch of flowers and cute things that come from Mother Nature as a gift for you on your wedding day.

So, get your princess moon with this super trendy and fashionable hairstyle as you will definitely NOT regret it!

2.The classic bun is still in but with certain twists

Ok so I think if you are the bride and you go for the classic bun you are surely taking the safe path down the aisle and there is nothing wrong with that if you ask me!

But, try giving it a twist so that people don’t find your hairstyle as boring as it can be. You can add some flowers or diamonds to make it look more stylish.

3.Make sure you throw some braids into that flower hairstyle you want!

Yes, the trend is to keep it messy but, it is something like an organized mess you know?

One way to get this super awesome trend right is by doing some messy mermaid braids and adding some flowers to it. You will be rocking 2 trends in one hairstyle!

 

These are the best countries to retire in

If you want things in life to go as well as they can, you should plan. I know, some things are better when they are unplanned but others require you to do some adult planning if you want to make the most out of them.

Now, part of aging is considering where and when to retire. By now, you should have figured out what to do with the money you accumulate over the passing years, so, did you already decide where you want to spend your golden years?

Some like spending them living near the woods, others, near the beach and others just like spending their retired years taking care and playing with their grandchildren. All of these goals are good but, in this post I want to hint the best countries to retire in if you want to live somewhere else during your golden years.

Brazil

If you happen to love the beach, dancing and making lots of new friends on a daily basis, then this country is definitely the top choice for you!

People in Brazil are so welcoming and warm hearted you will feel like you have family away from home as you will not get that cold shoulder you might feel you are getting in other countries.

Colombia

South America has so many countries to choose from when it comes to retiring actually but, I consider this country to be at the top of the list of the South American countries you can retire in. Also, if you happen to have saved all your incomes in dollars, you will notice that Colombia is a cheap country to live in as you will only need a couple of thousands to live in a very comfortable way.

So basically, you only need to have a minimum wage salary on a monthly basis to live like a king in this awesome and very warm country.

Spain

I will not lie about this country. Not all Spaniards are very nice but, there is so much to like about this country when it comes to the food and its beautiful sceneries!

3 facts you need to know about protein and bulking up

Making the decision to work out might be really hard for some but once this choice is made, other hard things follow.

For example, if you are already way in the fitness journey then you may have been faced with issues like you becoming too skinny or manly looking if you happen to be a girl or, if you happen to be a guy, maybe you don’t seem to be getting all those muscles where you want them to grow.

So, here is where I come in with this post. We know that if we want to gain muscle and bulk up, we need to get as much protein as we can get but, do we really have as much information as we can get on protein? Well, you do now!

1.Where does it come from?

Ok, so you made the decision to bulk up but, do you really know all the sources of protein? Just in case you are not familiarized with the food chain, protein comes from fish, meat, eggs and poultry.

Also, if you happen to be a vegetarian but you can still eat some stuff, you can get your source of protein from eggs, grains and cereal. Although I consider you will have your biggest source of protein from meats and fish. But at the end of the day, where the source of your protein intake comes from is entirely up to you.

2.You can also get your protein from supplements and whey protein

I think this is meant a lot more for people that are seriously into bulking up and working out. Because there can be such a thing as too much protein, your protein intake should be proportional to the amount of time you spend working out.

3.Now, how do I know how much protein I should be taking?

There are ways to calculate this. Like I said there can be such a thing as too much protein so, you should calculate your protein intake based on your body weight. Take around 0.6 to 0.8 grams of protein for each pound you weight.

Is drinking wine good or bad for you? Here is what I think!

Some people take drinking wine very seriously, a bit too serious if you ask me! But all jokes aside, although some people might defend wine drinking vigorously, some might disagree with this.

So, in this post I want to show you when wine is actually representing a benefit for you and when is it actually harming your health. Remember, there can be such a thing as too much of a good thing.

Whether people agree with this or not, it is proven that wine lowers cholesterol levels

For some people having really bad cholesterol levels can affect their overall health and most of the time, they will need to adjust to making some lifestyle changes if they want to lower that cholesterol and live longer.

Some of these changes include working out and eating well but, does that mean you have to sacrifice drinking? No, my friend.

You can still enjoy a glass of wine from time to time to help keep your cholesterol levels on the good side of things and keep your health in optimal condition.

Want to keep your brain as focused as it can be? Well, I got great news for you!

I really do think wine helps your overall health. Imagine, not only is it making your body be as great and in optimal conditions as it can possibly be but also, it is making your brain function to its fullest potential.

I do not know about you but, I want to be as smart as I can be and know everything and anything there is to know in this world and if wine is going to help me with that, then why the heck not?

Now, how much wine is too much?

Some people might consider normal to drink wine throughout the day others, once a week and others just once per day.

Obviously, if you over do it, you are not being healthy but rather, an alcoholic. So, make sure you keep your wine drinking as moderate as it can be.

 

Looking into taking a well-deserved break? Here are the best vacation countries!

Part of being an adult is realizing when there is too much going on work wise. We are not robots and we get tired. That means that even though we want to make as much money as we could, we will eventually get tired and need a break from life and making money to rest this temple of ours called the body.

But, taking a good relaxing break also comes with planning if you want to make the most of these vacations. You need to ask yourself questions such as: what hotel you want to go to or what country do you want to visit?

So, here you go! Here are the best vacations countries according to my views.

The top of the list begins with Brazil!

How could you not even consider Brazil when this country is well known for its exotic places, beautiful people and non-stop partying?

You can go there to get your party on but, you also have the option of going there to relax

Taking the last comment into consideration, you have many options in Brazil. You can go there to get your party on but, you also have the option of going there to relax. You just have to make the choice based on what are your vacation needs.

Italy and its romantic scenarios

I find Italy to be such a great country when it comes to traveling. You know how some people travel based solely on the food some countries have? Well, this is definitely one of those times that happen. Everyone knows Italy is known for having the best dishes but not only that, there are so many places to go to when it comes to walking around as tourists.

I can surely say without a doubt that Italy will not disappoint.

Take a beach vacation to Bermuda

Some people like to go for beach resorts and places like that to take their much needed breaks. Going to the Bermuda will definitely not disappoint you. There are so many beautiful beaches to go to, so many activities to do, so many romantic breaks to take. The options are just endless.
