Are You Suffering from WAIT LOSS?

daughtersofgod.net
Procrastination costs a lot! In fact, it makes you lose a lot of opportunities and gain a lot of unwanted things--like extra body weight. Indeed, a lot of people suffer from WAIT LOSS. They wait a lot and suffer loss. Look at the following:

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. [Ecclesiastes 11.4]
It's good to wait--"They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength"--but too much waiting can destroy opportunities. If I had waited till I was old enough to get a job, I wouldn't have landed on a job while in college. I couldn't have helped my parents with household expenses and couldn't have helped them with the expenses of my sister's education. 

If I had waited till I felt perfectly OK in health before I started working out again, I probably would be tied to a sick bed by now, suffering more ailments. I had terrible anxiety attacks about 5 years ago after suffering severe muscle trauma that made me stop working out and gaining weight. Even if I did just 2 or 3 push-ups I felt so dizzy and had difficulty breathing.

That went on for almost a year, until finally I decided I couldn't go on like that--idle, kept in my room and afraid of exerting myself physically. I thought, probably when I felt OK already, I'd start all over again. All that waiting made me lose a lot of opportunities and time. Time is gold.

So gradually, I dismissed the anxiety and went back to working out. It was difficult, but I realized I had to start something and keep on. Gradually, I was able to brisk walk, run, and then workout completely. It took months to fully recover.

If you wait till everything's perfect, you will suffer WAIT LOSS. If you've studied and prayed for it thoroughly--and you're the right age--and you're sure she's the girl of your dreams, then go for it. Start courting her. Further waiting can result to disastrous losses. But then, you have to make sure you're the right age and you have God's approval. If not, you wait.

But don't stop at one thing just because you need to wait. Life must go on. Whatever you do, make sure you're not suffering from WAIT LOSS!

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
