MAIN CAUSES OF LIVER DAMAGE

Liver

Weighting in at around 3 pounds, the liver is the body’s second largest organ; only the skin is larger and heavier. The liver performs many essential functions related to digestion, metabolism, immunity, and the storage of nutrients within the body. In order to maintain a healthy liver, it is important to know what daily activities we should avoid. Here are the main causes of liver damage.

  1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
  2. Not urinating in the morning.
  3. Too much eating
  4. Skipping breakfast
  5. Consuming too much medication
  6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring and artificial sweetener
  7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible, reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
  8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of the liver. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store. We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to ‘schedule’
  9. Alcohol.

One Exercise without Movement Tightens Every Muscle and Helps You Get Rid of the Extra Weight!

Only-One-Exercise-without-Movement-Tightens-Every-Muscle-and-Helps-You-Get-Rid-of-the-Extra-Weight

 

Plank” is one of the most effective exercises around the world. It affects not only the abs, but also the muscles of the whole body. Always give it five minutes a day and you will be surprised by the results.

The essence of the exercise is that, you should at least once a day like “float” above the floor for several minutes, relying only on the hands and feet. Undoubtedly, to be in such a position even 2 minutes – is not an easy task. At this point a large number of muscles are activated. But, as a result of this exercise, you will have a strong back, tight ass with no cellulite, shaped legs, flat stomach and beautiful hands.

How to exercise the “Plank”:

“Plank” is a static exercise. It does not require movement, so it is important to keep the body properly.

Lie on the floor on your stomach down. Bend your elbows 90 degrees and set in the lying position on your elbows. The body should form a straight line from head to heels. Rely only on your forearms and the fingertips on your feet. The elbows should be directly under your shoulders. Keep your body as flat as possible, strain the abdominal muscles and do not relax. Try not to lower your hips toward the floor.

Feet. Assemble them. It will be difficult to keep the balance that will increase pressure on the abdominal muscles.

Legs. They should be straight and tight, otherwise, the pressure in the right abdominal muscle, which reserves the lumbar spine, will also be reduced.

Buttocks. Stretch and do not relax until the end of the exercise, as this increases the activation of all muscles of the lower torso.

Lower back. The most important moment. For proper execution of the exercise, your lower back should be flat. This means that it must not be curved or dented. Imagine that your back adheres tightly to the wall.

Stomach. Bring it in, and in such a position, try to even tuck it under the ribs. During the exercise hold your stomach in such a position, but do not hold your breath.

Elbows. To avoid unnecessary burden on your shoulders, put your elbows directly below the shoulder joints.

Hold this position as long as you can. To begin with, is enough for 10 seconds. As a rule, people with different physical readiness maintain this posture for 10 seconds to 2 minutes. After a break of 2 minutes, repeat the exercise. 5 repetitions will be enough. If you are a beginner, do not try to break the record, start slowly.

EASY WEIGHT LOSS TIPS IN THE NIGERIAN EVIRONMENT

eviron weight loss

There has always been a misconception of the secrets to looking good. Some say its skipping meals or going on a strict diet ,others say it is only strenuous exercise. But thinking about these secrets, how long can one skip meals for?how long can one be on a strict diet for?What happens when one is unable to exercise?                                                                                                                                                                                                            Loosing/gaining weight is about the body metabolism.A high body metabolism means that food(calories) is burnt faster and so reduces weight gain/ fat. While a  low metabolism means that food is burnt slower thus when food intake is more than the usual amount , the  excess food that could not be burnt stores as fat in the body. Having explained this, some of the do’s and don’t secrets to maintaining metabolism ( hence weight) are as follows.

 DOs

a) Have your normal 3 square meals daily but in small portions.

Why?

i) Eating in small portions makes it easier for food to be burnt.

ii)Skipping meals to loose weight  lowers the metabolism speed and so when one goes back to having 3 square meals, the body stores excess food the rest as fat. This explains the reason for the boom-bust-boom  observed in some people’s  weight.

 b)  Exercise at least 3 times weekly .Why?

Exercise boosts one’s body metabolism because one needs energy(from burning food) to perform them. Daily exercise is really recommended for those who are on the very big side and desire weight loss. Examples  of recommended exercises are cycling, running, walking, jogging.

c) Drink lots of water .Why?

i) Toxins are created while the body burns food slows down the speed of metabolism. Water flushes out these toxins out of the body thereby boosting metabolism.

ii) It suppresses appetite thus reducing calories intake.

d) Eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

 e) Have a proper night sleep.

 DONT’S

a) Don’t forget the saying that you are what you eat. So, avoid or reduce the intake of foods with high sugars and fat.These include, snacks, white rice, bread or pasta, pounded yam/eba,  fizzy drinks. Instead consume small quantity of white rice/brown rice (If you can), wholemeal/brown bread, brown pasta/spagetti, fruits and vegetables .Even if the temptation to snack is irresistible, snack on low fattening foods such as unflavoured popcorn.

 b) Don’t eat past 8/9pm depending on your sleeping time so that consumed food could digest properly  before going to bed or else it is stored as fat.

c) Don’t eat too much of carbohydrate or protein such as going on low carb or vegetarian diet.Try and eat a balanced diet but don’t forget in SMALL PORTIONS.

 d)Don’t give up and never say it is impossible. This is applicable to those  who want to lose alot of weight.Do not hesitate to pick up when you slack. It is all about hardwork, determination and relentlessness .Most importantly, commit all into God’s hand and ask for his Grace.

Finally, you have to be patient,consistent,and self motivated no matter how much you slack.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle and see results for yourself.                    Looking good is serious business. Cheers!
