5 Reasons Why You're Still Fat Even If You Exercise
Everyday when I go out for a jog I see them--they've been exercising for years and yet they just seem to grow bigger and their tummies more bulging. And you're probably like that, too. Why can't some people lose weight? Well probably, here are 5 reasons why you're still fat even if you exercise:

1. You're not eating well. Eating less often does not make you lose weight. It will, probably for some time, but then you'd get overweight again and probably even worse. Imagine all that sacrifice with little to zero result. To get an idea why you need to eat enough and why you need to get rid of strict diets, see this article.

2. You eat the wrong foods. There are foods that worsen your metabolism. Some even destroy it. And foods that damage metabolism (tend to slow it down), like processed foods, have the most TV ads--even billboard and newspaper ads--telling you how they're supposed to be "fortified" with vitamins and minerals. Or probably you've been eating in fast food stores. Eat home-cooked meals so you can control your salt, fat and carb intake and make sure they have zero preservatives. 

3. Your body is probably toxic. Even with the right healthy foods and workouts. you won't lose weight if you are toxic. How does your body become toxic? Simple--stress. Unhealthy stress daily will make everything you do to lose weight useless. Then add to that the junk foods and drinks you take also everyday (and are added expense). Start living a really happy life, with less worries, and eating natural healthy foods.

4. Your body tends to store more fat. Some people tend to store more fat in their bodies especially around their bellies. Why? It's mostly about slow metabolism. Sometimes it runs in the family. How do you program a faster metabolism? For starters, eat a healthy breakfast daily and keep physically active. Eat fresh fruits before meals. Eat less for supper--and then take a snack 30 minutes before you go to bed at night. Why? It boosts metabolism in the morning, says two studies done at the Florida State University mentioned in an article on Health.Com. Eat before-bedtime snack limited to 150 calories.

5. Carb intolerance. Examine yourself--if you see your belly and hips growing bigger each time you eat carbs, then eat less carbs. Don't get rid of it totally, though. You also need carbs to lose weight. The trick here is to lessen. Eating 5 small meals a day instead of 3 large ones is highly recommended.

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 …

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…
