Effective Diet without Compromising Your Health

It is so difficult to lose weight. That's one fact that anyone who has tried every means possible to shed those extra pounds will definitely agree. And I am sure some of us did a crash diet at least once. In the end, we just find ourselves giving up because it does not only make us irritable and weak but it also makes us crave for food even more.

The main purpose why we go on diet is to lose weight and make us feel good about ourselves. But most of the time, the diet plan that we use either does not help us achieve anything or we might lose just a few pounds but after a few days or weeks, gain all of them back or worse, twice as much as what we've lost. Most of us even combine their diet plans with exercise which should be the best way but without proper nutrition, you will not even have enough stamina to go to the gym.

There is, however, another way to help lose weight without food deprivation that has gained popularity and that is HCG diet. HCG is a hormone produced by placenta during pregnancy. Its weight loss effect was discovered by a British physician, Dr. Simeon in mid-1950's while treating patients with pituitary problems. For weight loss program, it given either orally or through injection.

HCG does not only help you lose weight but also help you maintain it through self-discipline. After all, in order for it to work, it will require restricted diet. Hence, the success of this diet will depend on you and how you follow your diet plan thus giving you a chance to practice self-discipline when it comes to eating. Once you're off the restricted diet, that self-discipline will help you in maintaining your new weight.

Because of its effectiveness, most beauty centers and specialty clinics are already offering these services. But why pay additional fees if you can buy HCG and do it yourself?

Online Shopping for Christmas Gifts

One of the things that people look forward to during Christmas season is the shopping spree. If you notice, malls are usually packed with shoppers going from one boutique to another. But for someone like me who usually works at night and sleeps during the day, I prefer to do my shopping online. Most of the things I bought are from knowing that it is one of the leading buy and sell websites in the Philippines. Most of the products are cheap and still brand new. Now I am just waiting for Christmas.

Losing weight the natural way

One of the things that women worry about is weight gain. We have heard some women complain about how they can't seem to get rid of the extra bulges no matter what weight loss program they try or what slimming pills they take. The sad part is that most of these slimming pills have side-effects. Some of them dries your skin, makes you lose your appetite which in turn could lead to headache if you don't eat but worse are the side effects that might put your life in danger.

Some also prefer doing exercise which is a good way to lose weight without the scare of losing your life. But not everyone has the time to do that. In this fast pacing world, women must find some alternative to exercise in losing weight without losing quality time with their family.

If you are one of those girls who have been sweating it out but end up with the same weight after months of exercise or those who don't want to cut their time with their kids, then maybe you want to try adding supplements to your regimen or diet. There are supplements that can help lose weight naturally like resveratrol.

Resveratrol is a substance produced by several plants when attacked by bacteria or fungi. For years, experts have been studying its effect on human body. It has anti-oxidant which will benefit our skin and reverse aging, reduces cholesterol and lower blood sugar. But most importantly it has the ability to even reduce the risk of cancer. Resveratrol supplement is made with Japanese knotweed and has already helped a lot of women in dealing with their weight problems. It can also help increase stamina so you can take it as it is or combine it with exercise using your p90x resistance bands. Either way, you will still benefit from it.

The choice is yours. You can opt to take those slimming pills that might cause cancer or buy resveratrol which can reduce the risk of cancer. It is not that difficult to decide, is it?

My father always makes sure we have bananas available at home so I got used to eating at least one banana “finger” a day.

What are the common benefits of eating banana?
Bananas contain vitamin C, B6, and potassium. It is said that banana helps reduce the risk of colorectal cancer, breast cancer and renal cell carcinoma. If properly prepared, it can also help treat kidney stones and high blood pressure. It also contains folic acid wherein its naturally occurring form, Folate, helps prevent anemia during pregnancy and also prevent congenital malformation.

Banana also contains dietary fibers which aids in digestion and may be useful for people who want to lose weight the natural way.

There are other ways to use banana as beauty regimen or health supplement. But whether you’re pregnant or just trying to stay beautiful, banana should always be included in your daily diet.

REVIEW: Red is Marose

This is a blog review entry for Yuuki's Twin Blogversary Contest.

Red is Marose is Marose’ (or better known as redamethyst to her online friends) personal blog where she writes all about her “simple life in a world that rocks”.

Since it is a personal blog, the topics range from diet pills to blog memes. Just like any other personal blogs, it is about anything under the sun.

The layout is in a combination of red, gray and yellow with header picture of a girl with a guitar which is explained by its tagline “Simple Pero Rock”. It has 3 columns which houses the common elements in a blog in an orderly manner. The loading time is relatively fast which means you’ll easily find them.

More than anything else, what caught my attention was the “Novena to God’s Love” at the upper part of the sidebar which denotes that the author is a religious person and who would put God first before anything.

REVIEW: The Tsinay Writes

This is a blog review entry for Yuuki's Twin Blogversary Contest.

The Tsinay Writes

Sam is someone I know who will say what she thinks and this is where she put them. As the title suggests, The Tsinay Writes (The Not So Random Thoughts of a Not So Random Tsinay) is all about a Chinese-Filipina lady’s opinion on just about anything and in almost everything.

The layout is a combination of pastel pink (yay!) and green and if you look at the header picture, you’ll see a “tsinay” looking back at you. The layout was personally made by the author and it is neatly created that you’d think it was done by a professional web designer (and she claimed she didn’t have any formal training! That makes her a smart and very creative girl, right?). Sam is a member of several bloggers’ group which you can see neatly organized at the far right sidebar of her website. The fact that it only has limited number of advertisement made it load really fast which makes blog hopping a pleasant experience.

Pantene Pro-V Total Care

I just love Pantene's Total Care products. I have very long hair (sorry I don't have picture right now) and the ends tend to break. There was a certain product that I was scared of letting go because at that time it was the only thing that worked for me. Just recently, my mom bought Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner so I tried it and I'm really happy with the result - my hair is now much softer.

*I'm supposed to upload a picture. Unfortunately, my camera doesn't want to cooperate. 
Just when I was about to give up, my camera started working *lol* So here's the conditioner I'm using and my hair after drying it without combing (seriously!):

Breast Cancer Awareness

I was bloghopping, entrecard dropping and adgitizing when I found myself staring at this very elegant necklace.

It's a necklace designed by Lois Hill for supporters of Pretty neat, huh?
