For a couple of months now, I’ve been hearing the painfully repeated adage that comes up when any ‘fad’ diet goes into ‘non-fad’ mode. THE KETO DIET IS UNSUSTAINABLE Bullshit. My view is that it’s not just untrue, but an intentionally concocted ‘scare’ aimed at introducing some new fad diet. That’s all there is to […]
I’ll start with the basics of a Ketogenic diet. The logic is simple: Your body can burn glucose OR ketones for energy Eliminating glucose from your diet results in the body switching to Ketones as an alternate energy source Ketones come from fats – thus this results in rapid burning of the fats in case […]
Many of our readers are women who are expecting or have delivered naturally in the past 4-6 months, so I wanted to put up something for them. You will likely return to your earlier weight in 6 to 12 months after delivery. Most women lose half of their baby fat in 5-6 weeks (roughly a […]
Today I write about how high-acid fruits – specifically the Star Fruit – which I absolutely love the flavour of (and usually buy by the dozen when it’s in season). Here’s what Food Facts has to say on this topic : The greatest amount of nutrients in star fruit is derived from vitamin C, providing […]
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2018. I’m not posting anything now for a bit at least – so have a relaxed Christmas and New Year! Thanks for reading my stuff on Wellness Tree. I’m truly glad to have people who benefit from and enjoy my work.
If you said “big” or “small” or “red” or “white” – you’re only half right. I want to introduce to you the concept of “pink” muscle and how to build it…. But he’s some background about the body first .
So the body has 2 primary muscle types: Red and White.
Red muscles also have lots of mitochondria. This too gives them a darker colour. And they also have lots of capillaries – these are small blood vessels which supply oxygen-filled blood to the muscle fibers. These red muscles are also known as “slow twitch fibers”.
These muscle fibres contract slowly – and can continue working hard for a long time without fatiguing. If you haven’t figured it out yet, these are the ‘Aerobic Muscles’ (ones you use during aerobic exercise). These are the muscles that use mostly oxygen to make their energy.
When you walk long distances, lift light weights for long periods of time, or even just do your daily sit-ups and crunches – you’re activating mostly red muscles.
Been experimenting with Honey for hair and skin care this the past week. 1. Moisturizing Mask Honey moisture from the air into the skin and ensures it’s retained it in the layers where it’s needed most for penetrating, long-lasting hydration. The Beewax Balm in our store works wonders – it has a full 5% honey […]
I’d written this mid-October, but didn’t post because too many of my articles around the time were on a similar subject 🙂
So, I have a cold. But it’s so well under control, I’m able to work almost normally. I wanted to share what I’m doing to keep it under control and maybe it’ll help you workaholics continue to function. Note: If you have a fever, TAKE REST – none of this will work for you.
Keep the respiratory tract warm
The common cold is an upper respiratory tract (URT) infection, and the cold virus dies quicker if kept warm.
- Use a scarf to ensure the hollow of the throat and the area around it are kept warm.
- Wear a jacket if the weather is cool and roll the collar up if needed.
Today I’m examining a post written on Draxe.com – basically I’ll look at various premises they have introduced, and explore it to a deeper level. For a number of reasons, plant-based diets have become increasingly popular in developing countries. Whether for ethical or health-conscious reasons, people are increasingly hungry for high-quality plant-based protein foods. (1) Quality protein foods are essential […]
People don’t believe it when I tell them that drinking the right amount of water per day can help weight loss. I guess that’s because its such an obvious and simple remedy, people simply want to run away from it… Drink before a meal Because water is an appetite suppressant, drinking it before meals can make […]
