VERY CHEAP WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT: Anyone Can Easily Afford This

itgirlcode.com
Here's a super cheap way to lose weight which anyone can easily afford--avoid eating out as much as you can. The daily cheap lunch you eat at a popular fastfood store which your budget can easily shoulder keeps adding extra weight and fat to your body.

Even food you eat at your favorite cheap street-corner eatery or karinderia on a daily basis makes you gain weight as well without you noticing it. One day you just see yourself in the mirror or in a picture posted on FB looking fatter, and you wonder what happened. Well, it's the meals you eat at the fastfood store or karinderia.

What's wrong wrong with these foods?

They contain more preservatives, artificial flavors, salts and probably cooked in recycled cooking oil. To make food tasty, most of their recipes contain a lot of pork and fattening mixtures, like flour for thickening sauces. You never know how they cook food inside their kitchens. And we often think that popular fastfoods are good foods cooked properly--that's one of the pitfalls to being overweight.

We assume fastfood companies are concerned about our health.

Moreover, fastfoods and restaurants offer fattening beverages, pastries and sundaes that are hard to ignore. Even if you try them just 3 times a week, they do damage to your weight. A lot of people fail in their weight loss efforts not realizing it's due to their eat-outs.

So, what can you do about this?

Avoid eating out.

Eat home-cooked food most of the time to get health and fitness with middle income budget. Home-cooking is when you can control what goes into your food--and control the cost, too. You can have everything fresh without any preservatives or artificial this and that. You can opt to always use oil in minimal amount and always use fresh cooking oil.

You can also opt to bring packed lunch to school or work to make sure you eat good food daily. But if you really can't avoid eating out in cheap eateries--as majority of us middle income folks do--then at least prefer cheap karinderias to fastfoods. There are karinderias that do home-cooked meals. All you have to do is take note of what they serve. If they look and taste like your good food at home, then go for them.

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&#…
