The Handful Diet

The Handful Diet

From 2017 to 2018, the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ National Health Survey found that two-thirds of Australian adults were either overweight or obese. The food we’re eating, the unhealthy recipes we’re cooking with, and even the wine, beer, and other alcohol we’re consuming could all play a part.

If you feel like you’ve put on a few extra pounds, then you may be trying to find a way to get rid of them. Diet and exercise can be a recipe for success. For some, the diet revolving around handfuls of food has proven to be an ideal way to shed those extra pounds.

The handful diet, known as the Scandi Sense Diet, was formed by a Danish dietitian and biotech company CEO, Suzy Wengel. Rather than use complicated measuring and calorie counting methods, she used a “handful” approach, which allowed her to lose 88 pounds (39.9 kilograms) in just ten months.

How Long Until You See Results with a Waist Trainer 

How Long Until You See Results with a Waist Trainer 

One of the most common questions people ask when they buy waist trainers is how long will it be until I see results? No matter which reputable company you buy your waist trainer from, there is no single answer. Instead, many things can contribute to how long you can expect to wait.

Instant Slimming with a Waist Trainer

You can see results instantly with a waist trainer, but that’s because of the high-compression latex with which the waist trainer is made. When you put it on, it can slim down your waistline by even as much as four inches.

However, it’s not realistic to wear your waist trainer 24 hours per day, seven days a week. So, what about results that come about from the use of a waist trainer along with exercise and a healthy diet?

The Facts and Fiction of Botox 

The Facts and Fiction of Botox 

Unless you’ve spoken to a health professional – such as www.botoxonline.net – about Botox before, you may not be aware of what’s right and what isn’t. There is a lot of misinformation in the public arena, so it can take plenty of research from reputable sources to get to the bottom of it. Read on to learn some of the more common myths that can clear up some pressing questions you may have had.

Botox Isn’t Safe

Many people may believe that Botox isn’t safe because it’s derived from the botulinum toxin that’s poisonous in food. Yes, the botulinum toxin can indeed make you sick, but the same isn’t true about Botox.

Botox stays in the injection site in which it’s administered, and it doesn’t move around. What’s more, it’s had FDA approval since 1989 for treating eye spasms. Then, by 2002, it was approved for cosmetic use. Since then, tens of thousands of people have benefited from Botox as a form of treatment

Botox is Addictive

It’s easy to believe that Botox is addictive when you hear of people getting more than one treatment. In reality, Botox is only a temporary treatment, which means anyone who sees its benefits will get it every three to four months.

Botox is not something that offers a high nor promotes a physical addiction. Therefore, it’s not something to which you can become addicted.

Moving Home

How To Make Moving Home As Stress-Free For Your Pets As Possible

Moving home can be a stressful event for all the family, especially on the day, although you can mitigate some of that stress by planning everything well in advance and employing a professional removalists company.

Despite taking these steps, there is one (or possibly more than one) member of the family who is often overlooked when it comes to stress reduction during a house move, and that is the family pet. This is especially so when that pet is a dog or cat, who are both creatures of habit.

The upheaval of them moving to completely new surroundings, inside and outside, can be incredibly stressful for pets. While family members might be able to communicate how they are feeling, our pets often cannot, and thus we are unaware that they are in any way upset or even in distress.

So, assuming you love your pet and want to make your house move as stress-free as possible for them, here are some simple tips to help you, and your beloved animal.

The first step should be on any occasion you are visiting your new home prior to the move. When there, try to do a bit of a recce, but with your pet in mind and so look for anything that might be a problem for them such as loose writing or splintered wood panels indoors, and check the garden too for any dangers.

You should prepare a ‘first-night’ bag for your pet, that includes their food, bowls, some toys, and treats so that if the rest of their stuff is packed away in boxes, you at least have the basics for them that evening. Obviously, the specific items will vary depending on the type of pet.

On the day of the move, especially when your removalists arrive and start loading the removal van, it is best that you keep your pet well out of the way. This also applies at the other end when they are unloading.

Apraxia

For any parent with a child with apraxia, or waiting for an apraxia diagnosis, there is much unknown information. How do you know what to expect? How do you know what to look out for? How can a speech pathologist help? Read on to find out more about apraxia and your child.

Laser Eye Surgery

When Should I Consider Laser Eye Surgery?

If you have problems with your vision – such as astigmatism, long-sightedness or short-sightedness – you might have thought about getting LASIK eye surgery. It’s an extremely attractive option with the potential to improve your vision dramatically.

To put it simply, laser surgery generally involves reshaping the surface of the eye to correct vision problems. Although a lot of people end up with 20/20 vision following the procedure, this is by no means guaranteed. And, laser surgery is expensive.

Because of this, we decided to put together this short guide to help you decide when to think about getting laser eye surgery. Consider surgery if:

You Can’t Wear Contact Lenses and Don’t Like Glasses

Although they are quite convenient and generally effective, some people are unable to wear contact lenses due to underlying medical conditions or eye problems. Because of this, they have to wear glasses – and as most of us know, not everyone likes this.

Fortunately, laser eye surgery presents a viable alternative to both contacts and glasses. If successful, you shouldn’t need to use any corrective eye wear.

Yoga

How Yoga Can Help You to Lose Those Extra Kilos

It can be strange to think that yoga, which is not exactly a high-intensity exercise, can help with your fitness and weight loss. While it’s not the most conventional method for weight loss, that doesn’t mean it can’t have some surprising benefits. But possibly not in the way you might think.

If you love yoga, or you have been thinking about giving it a try, then you may be surprised to find out about the following.

It Can Help You Burn Calories

Everyone knows that a calorie deficit is essential for weight loss, which is why burning calories and eating less is usually a recipe for success when it comes to weight loss. In the traditional sense, yoga doesn’t often make you burn a lot of calories. However, it can help you burn some.

Active yoga classes, such as power yoga, for example, make you move far more than traditional yoga. Restorative yoga, too, has seen some promising results for overweight women who may struggle with different exercises.

It Helps You Sleep Better

The practice of yoga promotes better and deeper sleep, which is promising if you often run on empty throughout the day. So, how does that relate to weight loss?
