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.

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!

 

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.

4 not so good things that you may doing before bed that damage your sleeping routine

If you happen to be like me, then you know getting your good night sleep is key if you want to guarantee being a productive member of society for the rest of the day!

One way you can achieve this is by creating a sleeping routine. You might be thinking to yourself: does this mean I am an old prune? NO, it just means that you need to organize your schedule so that you can get enough sleep to function right throughout the day!

We all know there can be some serious consequences to our health if we don’t get as much sleep as we should. But, are we having certain habits that are sabotaging our sleeping routines? Here are some of the mistakes you may be making.

Having a not so light dinner

Don’t get me wrong. You should not go to bed without having dinner but, that does not mean you are going to have a gigantic T-bone steak 30 minutes before going to sleep right? You will probably stay up all night going from side to side in your bed as your body is trying to correctly digest all that dinner you had.

Smoking a cigarette before going to sleep

I honestly don’t know what else to say or do to get through to people. Smoking kills and it is simply JUST BAD. Why would you actually think that you are going to get a benefit out of a cigarette by smoking one right before going to bed to calm your nerves? Please!

You leave your T.V. on

Some people actually say that they cannot fall asleep unless they have their T.V. on but, I simply don’t understand this as that T.V. light actually makes the body stay awake and aware. So, in most cases, it would be recommended to turn off all lights and just leave whatever light it is necessary on as the body will understand it is time to get some much needed soul cleansing rest.

 

Best High Fiber Foods For Weight Loss

Do you associate dieting and weight loss with hunger? If so, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that eating high fiber foods can help you lose weight and keep your hunger at bay!

 

RASPBERRIES

There are fascinating recent researches on raspberries for managing obesity and type 2 diabetes. Raspberries contain a naturally occurring compound called ketone that can increase metabolism in our fat cells so that we may be less likely to deposit fat and also use up some of the fat that is already stored.

Red raspberries, along with a range of other berries, can help improve insulin balance, blood sugar balance, and blood fat balance in obese persons with type 2 diabetes.

 

COCONUT

Coconut is a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as folates, riboflavin, niacin, and thiamin, as well as minerals such as potassium, iron, and magnesium. It provides a significant portion of the daily recommendation of 25 grams of fiber from the American Heart Association.

 

PEARS

Pears are a good source of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients with its vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids content. Remember to keep the skin in tact though because that’s where most of the nutrient is concentrated.

 

GREEN PEAS

The majority of the fiber in green peas are insoluble fiber. It’s packed with powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and phytonutrients that promote overall health. Frozen peas are available year round and budget friendly, making them a practical addition to your diet. They are also easy to add to soups, salads and side dishes.

 

OKRA

Okra is a rich source of dietary fiber and several vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid, and zinc. It is high in antioxidants and may support improvement in heart diseases, type 2 diabetes, digestive diseases, and even some cancers.

 

BLACK BEANS

Not only are black beans an excellent source of fiber, they are also a very rich source of protein. Both fiber and protein can help regulate the passage of food through our digestive tract. This provides a steady digestive flow that can help to regulate blood sugar and promote overall digestive tract health.

Not only do we get to pick bold things when it comes to makeup eyeshadows and lipsticks but also, the way we use them. You can opt to look a little spacey or you can go for that warrior look. It is surely up to you but I assure you, don’t stop trying them out as you will be surprised by the hot results!
