Keep to consume 400 calories per meal

You can still eat 4 times a day but with a dose of 400 calories per meal. You should comply with the 1600 calorie per day diet because of the amount that is needed by women with high body size, as well as the average activity in order to continue to have an ideal body weight.

Do not let your stomach empty more than 4 hours

Therefore, eat 4 hours. Waiting too long to eat can make you very hungry so it will be hard to think clearly. That means, you will not have enough energy and patience to choose healthy foods. You will eat what you first see (chips, dry cereal, pastries, and other foods), and you may be eating with very hurry.

Snacks are very important, but when the right time to consume depends on you. You may want to consume it while working on assignment in the afternoon at the office or when overtime at night.

According to the time of India pages, taking sleeping pills can cause harm. Physician specialist in, Dr. Mursalin Sheikh explained, medically, barbiturate sedatives and hypnotics contain substances which include drugs such as opium, benzodizepam and barbiturates. Sedatives subduce will give a sense of calm on the subject without inducing sleep, although drowsiness can be present. While hypnotics may maintain sleep. Both are approximately the center of the depression.

He appealed, before deciding to take medication to sleep, it helps you think about the impact of hazards. There are a number of harmful side effects caused, such as drowsiness, impaired learning ability, headaches, sleep prolonged, unusual dreams,respiratory depression, changes in appetite, drunkenness, dizziness, confusion, short term memory loss, and so on.

4 Everyday Habits that Cause Skin Fast Old

January 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Old skin is not only caused age. Many people do not think that the common practice of everyday also makes the skin wrinkles and look older. What?

“Many people do not think that the habits which they say okay it is a cause of premature aging,” says Mary P. Lupo, MD, a dermatologist from New Orleans, as reported by Health.com.

Here it is bad habits that can accelerate aging:

1. Wearing facial cleansing scrubcontaining

 

During this time people thought that the scrub can remove the dirtin the face better, but according to Lupo, cleaners that containscrub makes your skin irritated and eroded. In the end, the skin will look older.

“We recommend using a cleanser without soap scrub, or if you have time could use a little baking soda and warm water as a facial cleanser to remove dead skin cells,” advises Lupo.

2. Frequent bathing with warm water

 

The habit of bathing in warm water causes the fat layer that protects the skin cells become damaged and reduce humidity. Body fat will indeed restore the damaged was a few hours later,but as long as the fat is gone, the body continues to release moisture so that the symptoms appear wrinkled.

For that, Lupo suggests if you want to shower with warm water, do not get more than 10 minutes. Bathing with warm water does feel very comfortable and convenient, but if over time is not good for the skin.

3. Direct to comb the hair after a shower

Normally after a shower, the next habit to do is comb my hair. Apparently, according to Lupo habits can damage skin cells and makes hair fall out even faster bald. We recommend that you trim the hair first before bathing and better yet use a toner to strengthen hair.

4. Sleeping face down or face to the stomach

Be careful with your sleeping position. If your face while sleeping face down (the stomach), get ready for faster wrinkled. “The force of gravity makes the blood flow pulled down, and the eyes will looks well.

If this happens every night, skin can lose elasticity and collagen formed eye bags that make a person look older, “said Lupo. Better try to sleep with a flat pillow. Using a pillow of satin and silk materials can also reduce the risk of wrinkles.
