Conscious about How You Look? Don't be. You'd be Shocked to Know Why
When I was in college, I was hopelessly conscious about how I looked. I'd go to the men's room now and then to check how my face looked because I had oily face and a couple of acnes. I even secretly brought a small mirror once for this purpose.

I thought the world was always interested about how I looked.

Admittedly, it's important how you look. But not everyone is interested about how you look all the time. Well, for the first times they see you they probably would give you second or third sizing up looks. But after that, they won't bother with you anymore. You're not that important to people.

Remember, "you're not that important to people."

So don't act like people around you have nothing better to do than to see how you look. Believe me, they have more important things to do. When I realized this, I started acting confidently. Knowing you're not important to people gives you some kind of confidence--confidence derived from being set free from the idea that daily you're the center of attraction.

And anyway, this other knowledge adds to your confidence--that not everyone has been gifted with creativity and imagination, so God made the majority look good. But the few remaining were especially and uniquely designed so that God can display his genius through their creativity. God intended to give them a challenging look so they can apply their unique talents to it.

The talent I'm talking about is the extaordinary ability to create attraction where there is none. And all who are given a challenging look have this gift in them. They only need to hone the gift.

I did.

You see, after overcoming the paranoia that people are interested about your ugly looks, you can now channel your energies to creating an aura (or illusion?) of attractiveness. You'd be surprised that suddenly, a lot from the opposite gender are falling madly for you despite your looks.

People endowed with challenging looks develop an air of simple yet attractive confidence in them once they overcome their delusions that people watch them all the time and laugh at the way they look. Well, that happens sometimes, but once you overcome your conscious awareness of it, you begin to metamorphose. You transform into something--well, not exactly beautiful--but unique.

You develop strong character and a powerful mature disposition that make all the good looking guys look "weak, ordinary and pathetic" in comparison. And then all eyes are on you with admiration--despite the fact that you aren't good looking--that you are ugly, in fact.

More so if you couple this transformation with practical smartness and a nonchalant attitude towards the opposite sex.

When you have mastered this, I promise you, looks won't be so important anymore. You take the contest to a new arena, to a higher level where good looking guys won't be able to compete in.

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…
