5 Ways to Burn Belly Fat in 5 Days

Instructions for losing Belly Fat

1. Avoid drinking beer. This is a super easy way to gain stomach fat. As I'm sure plenty are aware of, "the beer gut". Beer is an easy way to just gain weight in general. If you're going to lose stomach fat, you must avoid drinking a lot of beer, if any at all.

2. Join in a sports club. Especially for younger people. Sports is one of the easiest ways to get into shape. There's a lot of recreation leagues for grownups. Sports like basketball are a the perfect way to definitely shed stomach fat.

3. Start running or jogging. Great way to lose stomach fat is being active. Running is an excellent way to shed belly fat off. Staying active and not sitting around is an important key. Stomach is one of the first plays you add fat.

4. Eat properly. Stop eating junk food and start eating foods that are healthy for. Like fruits and vegetables. Eat lean meats, and not so much food high in carbs. Also, do not eat before bed. That's a big no-no, eating then going to sleep. Great way to put on more weight. I was eating just cereal before bed and was gaining more fat. An apple probably won't kill you. Milk has fat calories, so that's not very good.

5. Drinking 8 glasses of cold water. Water flushes out toxin. It also increases your metabolism, so start drinking water! If you're going to lose weight, it's going to be hard doing so without drinking tons of water daily. 8 glasses at least everyday. Water in tea, or coffee does not count.

Practically proved so you can follow these steps..

How to Limit your PASSIONS

“It all depends on whether you have things, or they have you.” ~Robert A. Cook

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Barrie Davenport of Live Bold and Bloom.

Simplicity. It is a lovely ancient spiritual tradition that has seen a recent resurgence in popularity. As we try to make sense of our erratic economy and the accompanying financial anxiety, it is natural to leap to a less risky lifestyle extreme — stop spending, scale back, live lean.

If you are a regular reader of Zen Habits, you are probably intrigued by the idea of simplifying. In fact, you may have even given up many material things and actively live a very simple life. People who have adopted this level of simplicity, especially in the land of consumerism, are incredibly inspiring and fascinating.

But let’s be real here. In spite of embracing the concept of simplicity, most people really love their stuff, and they love acquiring more stuff. Like our attitudes about a healthy diet, our feelings about material things are complicated. We know what’s good for us, but we just don’t want to give up what we like. Our stuff makes us feel good.

Is it possible to live a simple life and still love stuff? How much letting go of stuff really counts toward simplifying anyway?

Living simply and detaching from material things will make you happier. There is real research and lots of anecdotal evidence to support the truth of this. But is it possible that some material things can add to our happiness, sense of contentment and joy in life? If so, how do you go about deciding what’s good stuff and what’s bad?

Perhaps the deciding factor is motivation. Do the things that you own or wish to buy support your ego, or do they enliven your soul? Some material things can afford you a sense of warmth, coziness, beauty, fond memories, or comfort. There are other things that offer only that fleeting rush of acquisition.

If you infuse mindfulness into your ideas and actions around material things, you can create a gentle balance between loving stuff and living simply.

Here are some thoughts that might be useful.

1. Look around your house now.

Walk from room to room. Do you see things that you never use and don’t really care about? Why not give them away or sell them? Clear physical and psychic space by removing the “dead wood” in your environment. Someone else might really need these things.

2. Examine why you are hanging on to something.

Is it truly useful or meaningful, or does it feed your ego in some way? Are you holding on to it just to impress others or to make yourself feel better or more important?

3. Look at how you spend your time.

Do you have things you own for hobbies that you never pursue? Do you have a kitchen full of gadgets but you rarely cook? If you truly think you will come back to a hobby or activity, box things up and put them out of sight until you do. Be realistic about how much time you have to use your extraneous stuff.

4. Are you in a career that is thing-focused?

Decorators, car dealers, retailers and others involved in creating, buying, selling and marketing merchandise, can have a hard time detaching from material things because they are always surrounded by the newest and best. There is beauty and art in many things, but consider this: you don’t have to own them all to appreciate them. Eckhart Tolle once suggested to Oprah Winfrey that she not buy everything she likes or wants — just savor it for the moment in the store.

5. Consider experiences rather than things.

On the whole, experiential purchases provide far more pleasure than material purchases. The memory of experiences improves with time, but material purchases are harder to think about abstractly. Experiences also encourage social relationships which provide long-lasting happiness. If you are itching to spend, spend on a great experience with someone you enjoy.

6. When you think about your things or want to purchase something new, consider these parameters:
•It brings beauty into your life and stirs your soul.
•It supports a passion or hobby.
•It helps bring family and friends together in a creative, meaningful way.
•It educates and enlightens.
•It makes life profoundly simpler so that you can pursue more meaningful things.
•It helps someone who is sick or incapacitated.
•It is useful and necessary for day-to-day life.
•It’s part of a meaningful tradition or a reminder of a special event.

7. You will know you are buying mindlessly if you:
•Buy on a whim.
•Buy to impress others.
•Buy because you feel you deserve it.
•Buy when you can’t afford it.
•Buy just to update something that still works or looks fine.
•Buy because someone else has it and you want it too.
•Buy because the advertisement seduced you.
•Buy because you are bored.
•It’s purchased because buying soothes you.

It is possible to balance a simpler life with owning and acquiring material things. You can enjoy stuff without living the life of an aesthetic. The exact balance you create is a matter of personal preference. But realize there is a diminishing point of return with accumulation and materialism that undermines authentic joy and fulfillment in life.

Apply mindful purging to your current lifestyle and belongings, as well as thoughtful consideration to your future purchases. Carefully examine your motivations for keeping possessions or buying new things. Once you allow things to serve your soul, rather than you being a slave to your things, your life will evolve into an artful harmony between what you have and who you are.

Diet Chart for Loosing Weight

Contents and information on your diet chart

Making your own diet chart for weight reduction is simple and it would be different from others since we all have our unique dietary requirements. There are several elements that your diet chart should have, but you can start by drawing a small food pyramid on a piece of paper. Add sections to your food pyramid for the following headings: "meat, fish, eggs and poultry", "vegetables", "fruits", "breads, cereals and rice", "dairy products- cheese, milk, yogurt", and so on. These food headings should be the foods that you are likely to eat or would eat during your weight loss program.

Write the nutrients from each of the food items listed on your chart. Write how much calories are burned by eating those foods. Include in the number of servings that you can have, serving size, fat content and foods that can enhance your cholesterol levels, improve your metabolism and energy, and so on.


With weight loss comes a huge amount of discipline for eating the right foods, avoiding the wrong foods and doing the right exercise. It is typical for weight loss diets to include fiber, vitamins, proteins and other essential nutrients to help your body shed off the pounds and build leaner muscles.

Include in your chart the goals you are capable of fulfilling and make sure that you stick with only the realistic ones.

* Some tips and guidelines:

- It is recommended for people who are trying to reduce their weights to eat 4 to 6 small meals and snacks per day to help control hunger and for the body to meet its nutritional requirements.

- Start out simple by keeping an eye on your calorie intake. You can ask your physician regarding calories and how much you should take per day.

- Your meals should be planned in advance to keep away from junk foods. And make sure that you have fresh and low fat foods in your pantry.

- Avoid foods that are high in calories, sugar and fat. You can make a wise choice by listing down the foods that your physician and/or nutritionist will recommend.

- Add variety to your healthy diet by always having fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish and lean meats. It's also best that you will learn how to prepare them.


If you need a single resource that can provide you with complete information about the right diet plan and weight reduction program that will suit you best, it's advisable that your check out Mike Geary's The Truth About Abs.

Money is a good servant to all

HTML clipboard
To attract abundance, see money as a flow of energy, not as a static quantity. See life as a flow also, not as a fixed pattern. Think of life as a glass, and of abundance as a flow of water. Water can fill the glass only in liquid form, not as a block of ice.

Money is a good servant but a poor master. People who work solely for money seldom go far. When your outgoings exceed your income, your upkeep is your downfall.

Your banker will lend you money if you can prove you don't need it. Fools and their money are welcome anywhere. Fools and their money are soon parted.

That money talks i will agree- it always says goodbye to me.

Winners and losers


Remember these sage words: 'A Loser sees a problem in every answer . A winner sees an answer in every problem', . Be a winner.

Monounsaturated fats reduce blood cholesterol and hence the potential for heart disease. These ' good' fats are found in salamon oil, linseed oil, cold-pressed oil, canola oil and olive oil. For good heart health, avoid heating these oils as their value is lost in the heating process.

10 Tips to prevent Breast Cancer -Health

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, aside from lung cancer. 1 in every 8 women are estimated to develop breast cancer in their lifetime. While there are certain risk factors like genetics we cannot change, there are many lifestyle changes we can make to aid in breast cancer prevention.

1. Pass on that last call for alcohol.

Studies have determined that women who drink alcoholic beverages develop cancer at a higher rate. How much is too much? Based on studies, ladies who consume 2 to 5 drinks daily have about 1½ times the risk of women who don't consume alcohol.
 

2. Quitters DO prosper - when it comes to smoking.

Although there has not been a direct link between smoking and breast cancer, studies suggest that smoking at an early age can increase a woman's risk. Not only can it be a risk for breast cancer, smoking is a definite risk factor for lung cancer. Need help quitting? Click on over to our http://Quitsmoking.about.com , where you will find everything you need to know to kick the habit.

3. Get physical.

Physical activity may reduce your risk of breast cancer. Studies by the Women's Health Initiative found that women who walked briskly 1.25 to 2.5 hours per week reduced a woman's breast cancer risk by 18%. Exercise doesn't always mean traditional gym exercises either. Check out the Top 10 Ways to Prevent Cancer Through Exercise for fun ideas.

4. Be aware of your family breast cancer history.

Having a family or personal history of breast cancer may increase your risk. If an immediate woman in your family has had breast cancer, it is important to let your doctor know. Studies have shown that breast cancer can be genetic. Genetic testing and counseling is available for those concerned with their risk. Keep in mind, that just because your mother or sister had breast cancer, it does not mean you will definitely develop breast cancer.

5. Avoid hormone replacement therapy if possible.

Studies have shown a link between long time hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer. This link suggests that combined HRT's (estrogen and progesterone) raise the risk factor. Five years after discontinuing HRT's the risk factor drops. HRT's also make mammograms less effective. If you need to take hormone replacement therapy, talk to your doctor about the risk and your personal condition.

6. Check your breasts every month.

Checking your breasts every month may not reduce your risk of developing breast cancer, but it may help detect breast cancer early. The earlier breast cancer is found, the less aggressive the treatment. Take a look at "How To Perform a Self Breast Exam" to learn how to do an exam, or to see if you are doing it correctly.

7. Try to keep a low fat diet.

A diet low in fat not only decreases the risk of obesity, it can reduce your risk of breast cancer. We know that estrogen plays a majot role in the development of breast cacner. Fat tissue contains small amounts of estrogen and may increase your risk. There have been conflicting studies about fat intake and breast cancer risk, however all studies have consluded that obesity plays a big part in breast cancer development.

8. Don't forget to get a mammogram - it's not a choice.

Like the breast self exam, a mammogram won't prevent the development of breast cancer, but it can detect cancer. Sometimes it can be difficult to feel a lump in the breast, and a mammogram is likely to detect any lumps that cannot be felt.

9. Have children earlier in life, if possible

Having no children or having your first child in your mid-thirties or later increases the risk.

10. Consider breastfeeding instead of formula feeding.

Researchers believe that the months without a period during pregnancy and breast feeding may reduce a woman's risk of breast cancer. This accompanies the data that suggests that early menopause lowers the risk factor, as well.

Resolove Conflits in Between Boy and Girl in LOVE

If you view conflict as something that shouldn't happen, something that harms relationships, it becomes negative. And then you avoid it and hope it will go away. But if you see conflict as a fact of life, an opportunity to strengthen relationships, you have a way of resolving conflict by turning it into something creative.


Try these "10 Ways to Resolve Conflict."

Agree on a mutually acceptable time and place to discuss the conflict.

State the problem as you see it and list your concerns.
Make "I" statements.
Withhold judgments, accusations, and absolute statements ("always" or "never").

  • Let the other person have his/her say.
  • Do not interrupt or contradict.
  • Do not allow name-calling, put-downs, threats, obscenities, yelling, or intimidating behavior.

Listen and ask questions.
Ask fact-based questions (who? what? where? when? how?) to make sure you understand the situation.
Ask exploratory questions (what if? what are you saying? is this the only solution to our problem? what if we did such and such? are there other alternatives to this situation?).
Avoid accusatory "why" questions (why are you like that?).
Use your own words to restate what you think the other person means and wants.
Acknowledge the person's feelings and perceptions.

Stick to one conflict at a time — to the issue at hand.
Do not change the subject or allow it to be changed.
"I understand your concern, but I'd like to finish what we're talking about before we discuss it."

Seek common ground.
What do you agree on?
What are your shared concerns?

Brainstorm solutions to the conflict that allow everyone to win.

Request behavior changes only.
Don't ask others to change their attitudes.
Don't ask them to "feel" differently about something.
Don't ask them to "be" different.
If you want them to "stop doing" something, suggest an alternative action.

Agree to the best way to resolve the conflict and to a timetable for implementing it.
Who will do what by when?

If the discussion breaks down, reschedule another time to meet. Consider bringing in a third party.

Know about Alcohol - Sip Slight



Wines are made from a variety of fruits, such as grapes,
peaches, plums or apricots. The most common wines are
produced from grapes. The soil in which the grapes are
grown and the weather conditions in the growing season
determine the quality and taste of the grapes which in
turn affects the taste and quality of wines. When ripe, the
grapes are crushed and fermented in large vats to produce
wine.

Beer is also made by the process of fermentation. A liquid
mix, called wort, is prepared by combining yeast and
malted cereal, such as corn, rye, wheat or barely.
Fermentation of this liquid mix produces alcohol and carbon
dioxide. The process of fermentation is stopped
before it is completed to limit the alcohol content. The
alcohol so produced is called beer. It contains 4 to 8 per
cent of alcohol.

Whisky is made by distilling the fermented juice of cereal
grains such as corn, rye or barley. Scotch whisky was originally
made in Scotland. The word "Scotch" has become
almost synonymous with whisky of good quality.
Rum is a distilled beverage made from fermented
molasses or sugarcane juice and is aged for at least three
years. Caramel is sometimes used for colouring.


Brandy is distilled from fermented fruit juices. Brandy is
usually aged in oak casks. The colour of brandy comes
either from the casks or from caramel that is added.



Gin is a distilled beverage. It is a combination of alcohol,
water and various flavours. Gin does not improve with
age, so it is not stored in wooden casks.

Liqueurs are made by adding sugar and flavouring such as
fruits, herbs or flowers to brandy or to a combination of
alcohol and water. Most liqueurs contain 20-65 per cent
alcohol. They are usually consumed in small quantities
after dinner.

Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams - Randy_Pausch

On September 18, 2007, computer science professor Randy Pausch stepped in front of an audience of 400 people at Carnegie Mellon University to deliver a last lecture called “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.” With slides of his CT scans beaming out to the audience, Randy told his audience about the cancer that is devouring his pancreas and that will claim his life in a matter of months. On the stage that day, Randy was youthful, energetic, handsome, often cheerfully, darkly funny. He seemed invincible. But this was a brief moment, as he himself acknowledged.

Randy’s lecture has become a phenomenon, as has the book he wrote based on the same principles, celebrating the dreams we all strive to make realities. Sadly, Randy lost his battle to pancreatic cancer on July 25th, 2008, but his legacy will continue to inspire us all, for generations to come.



This is amazing, he died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind…
In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow. May you be blessed by his insight.

10 Steps to fight with Melasma

About melasma -
Melasma, or brown spots, is a common skin condition in which the skin pigment melanin is unevenly distributed in the skin. Melasma can affect anyone, although women with brownish-skin complexions are at higher risk.

Melasma can be cured with the home made medicine and some measures which keeps skin brighter and illuminating..

Causes : - Exposure to Sunlight.
lack of melanin or vitamin-D in skin
Excessive usage of Birth Control pills.
Hormone Replacement therapy.
and some Genetic by genes from the ancestors.

Step 1

Gently massage the affected areas with aloe vera gel. Aloe vera contains a potent substance called mucilaginous polysaccharide (MPS), which softens and lightens brown spots and other discolorations. Apply the aloe vera gel to the affected areas and massage in circular motions for 15 minutes and leave on overnight. Aloe vera gel can be purchased at any health-food store near you.

Step 2

Rub an oatmeal-and-milk mixture to the affected areas every day. Oatmeal is a natural skin-exfoliating substance, which can lighten skin discolorations such as melasma. Mix one cup of uncooked oats and a 1/2 cup of milk and massage directly on the affected areas. Leave the oat-and-milk mixture on your skin for about 30 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Step 3

Apply turmeric paste to the affected areas every day. Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric spice, which has antioxidant and skin-lightening properties. Mix five-to-six tablespoons of turmeric powder to 10 tablespoons of milk. Add one tablespoon of gram flour to thicken the mixture so it’ll be easier to apply to the skin. Gently massage the paste into the affected areas and leave on for about 30 minutes; rinse off and pat dry.

Step 4

Massage honey-and-almond paste to the affected skin every day. The proteins contained in honey and almonds have a skin-lightening effect on the skin. Add one cup of raw unsalted almonds into a blender with a 1/2 cup of honey. Blend the mixture until it turns into a paste. Gently rub the mixture onto the affected skin and leave on for about 30 minutes; rinse off and pat dry.

Step 5

Apply lemon juice on the affected skin every day. Lemons contain citric acid, which can naturally lighten hair and skin. Wash your hands and squeeze a fresh lemon on the affected areas; gently rub and leave on for 20 minutes. You can apply lemon juice prior to applying any of the remedies mentioned above.

Step 6

Take seeds of onion and make a paste of them with water and apply this paste on effected area and wash it after it dries.

Step 7

Extract juice from fresh tulasi leaves and mix camphor powder in it.
Apply this thick juice on effected area and wash it after it dries.

Step 8

Take 2 spoons of Triphala Churnam and add it to 300 ml of water.
Let it soak overnight. Next morning boil this water till you get 100 ml of brown color water mixed with triphala churnam.
Now filter the powder below and use this warm water to clean the effected area gently and later apply above pastes.
Food to eat : 1.Take 1 spoon triphala churnam with honey every night before sleep and every morning on empty stomach.

2. Make juice of beetroot+carrrot+cucumber+honey and have 2 glasses (500 ml) before breakfast (atleast 1 hour after taking triphala churnam as said above)

Food to avoid : Tamarind, spicy and masala food, garlic, brinjal, green chillies, curd or yogurt, buffallow milk (should use only cow milk), liquour, sugarcane, eggs, fish, chicken.
Also avoid exercise in heat, birth control pills and stay away from sexual activities till it is cured.

Personality Development - Tips to Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is often characterized as a scientific, analytical way of thinking. It helps us form more knowledgeable opinions and make better decisions. That certainly seems like a beneficial skill to have, but how do you develop the ability to think critically?

Critical thinking doesn’t equal higher intelligence. In layman’s terms, it’s just a more logical way to think about solutions from all angles.

Some of us may have stronger critical thinking skills than others, but we can all learn how to improve and develop our mind.

Here are some suggestions that can help you strengthen your critical thinking skills:

1. Clarify. Make sure you have a clear understanding of the problem you’re trying to solve. You won’t be able to reasonably analyze a situation and locate a solution if you’re not completely clear on what you’re trying to accomplish!

* It’s also important that you place your own feelings about the situation aside. You cannot get a clear understanding of the issue if you have prejudiced opinions and biases about it.

2. Attempt to find a solution. Take some time with a pen and paper to define all possibilities. At this time you’ll also want to map out how you’ll be able to reach each of these solutions.

* Include the benefits and challenges of each solution. To learn how to improve and develop your critical thinking skills, you must be open to new ideas, so try and incorporate as much as you can into your list.

3. Information. Next, gather as much information as possible to support all the solutions you’re considering, as well as information you need to refute them.

* Considering your solutions from all angles will keep you from making a haphazard decision, which would not be classified in the realm of critical thinking.

4. Learn how to analyze. Now you have a problem, a list of solutions, and all the information you need to support or refute each of those decisions. So what do you do with it all?

* You’ll need time to analyze everything. Take everything into consideration and don’t assume anything. Make sure you have irrefutable evidence to back everything up. The more you practice this, the better you’ll ultimately get at it, so keep plugging away.

5. Conclude. Make an intelligent conclusion to your original problem. Make sure you have the documentation to back up and prove your decision. Always make sure this is a reasonable conclusion that is relatively simple to put into action.

* If you’ve put the time and effort into analyzing the problem and gathering the information, your conclusion should be able to support itself.

Final Thoughts on Critical Thinking

By following the steps explained here, you have just used your critical thinking skills! Though it may seem unnatural at first, as with everything, as you continue to practice these strategies, your critical thinking skills will continue to improve and develop.

Thinking critically can help you with many aspects in your life. Keep practicing these skills on a regular basis and soon you’ll enjoy the benefits of better decisions and superior choices!

Vitamin A - For better healthy and youthful Skin

For better health and skin glow read the article below.
Collagen is the key to healthy skin that tends to age well. The change in the pH level of the skin caused by just a few uses of a Vitamin A product such as Retin-A can help generate collagen. "Collagen is the skin's structural fiber," dermatologist Dennis Gross said in the October 2005 issue of O Magazine. "As we get older, it breaks down, creating lines and large pores."

The best way to keep collagen from breaking down is avoiding the sun at all costs. Dermatologists warn that up to 90 percent of wrinkles, dark spots and sun damage are caused by sun exposure. This is why they're always preaching the use of sunscreen. However, if the damage is done, you can try to recoup the gorgeous skin you once had. To find out your best option, read on.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A really cuts down on the wrinkles, perhaps better than any other type of skin product. I would recommend skipping the over-the-counter vitamin A products, which have not yet been proven to be as effective as prescription strength products. Ask your doctor for a prescription for Retin-A, Renova or Retin-A Micro (Retin-A can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico, Canada and some European countries, so if you live or are visiting there, you don't need a prescription). These contain the tretinoin, which is proven more effective on fine lines and wrinkles than retinol, found in most OTC products.

Keep in mind that you shouldn't expose skin to the sun when using Retin-A, Renova or Retin-A Micro. You'll want to cover up with sunscreen and a hat. Vitamin A makes skin very susceptible to skin damage. You should avoid tretinoin products if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant because it could cause birth defects. Also, start slowly with this product, which initially can cause redness, peeling and flaking. Too many women give up after just a couple weeks because they are alarmed by the initial effects of tretinoin. Start by using it twice a week, then slowly move to every other day until your skin adjusts.
