EATING MAKES HIM INCREDIBLY LOSE WEIGHT: What If You Had His Body?

grub.gunaxin.com
Let's call him Darol or Dar for short. I knew him in college in our freshmen days and what you'd always remember about him is his appetite (and Jughead). I never saw him without food in his hand and mouth. We both had classes in the morning and the rest of our subjects began at 4 in the afternoon and ended at about 9 in the evening. So, in between, we would separately roam around the corridors of the Institute of Architecture in FEU or else stroll around the campus or nearby vicinity.

Well, I liked reading books most of the time, but Dar loved eating in his free time. He'd try this and that pastry or food dish specialty and bring some to the institute, sit in a desk lying idly along the corridor and start munching--sandwiches, crackling chicharon (crunchy and spicy fried pork skin), junk food, pies, dimsum, peanuts, cakes, rolls, burgers, chocolate bars--and then wash them all down with Coke or Magnolia chocolait.

Our school mates marveled at how he didn't gain weight with all that caloric snacks (in fact he remained skinny) but I marveled at where he got the money to buy them. Or how much was his daily allowance.

I'd sometimes sit beside him the few times we chanced upon each other at the corridor and we'd talk about food and how even at home he had the same appetite. "I've been waiting to gain weight, to no avail," he once told me. He would offer me some of his munchies--and I'd try some chicharon, which was my favorite then--and shared with me once how he'd sometimes cook his own meals and make sure they got plenty of fat and protein. He was desperate to gain weight.

Years later, when I became a health and wellness consultant, I learned that it all had to do with metabolism. Dar was not a physical workout enthusiast and never had any special diet (in fact, his eating seemed like the reason why he never gained weight) and yet his body kept burning lots of calories even if he was just sitting idly almost all day along our institute's corridor.

Now, what if you had that metabolism? Your metabolism may not be as hard working as Dar's, but you can make it work harder just a bit to lose significant amount of body fat--and lose weight even without dieting or punishing yourself with heavy workouts. Yup, there are ways to "manipulate" metabolism a bit.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
