    More than millions of people worldwide suffer from joint and knee ache on a daily basis. Usually, this type of pain comes with age, although it can also be a consequence of wearing uncomfortable shoes and having a poor body posture.

    Luckily for those who have this health issue, there is a 100% effective and natural cure. The ingredients of this remedy are rich in magnesium and silicon, known as pain-soothing compounds that have the power to strengthen the tendons and ligaments as well.

    Let's take a look at the recipe for the so called gelatin treatment:

    2 tbsp of unflavored gelatin
    1 orange
    A ripe banana
    2 tbsp of honey

    First, squeeze the orange. Next, peel off the banana and mash it. Afterwards, add the honey to the mashed banana. Then, dissolve the gelatin in water. Use a double boiler to heat it and improve its consistency. After you do this, warm up the orange juice a bit, and add the gelatin to it. Stir the mixture to prevent lumps.

    Next, transfer the gelatin blend into molds and put them in the fridge for 20 minutes. Then, remove the gelatin from the molds, turning it upside down on a plate, and add the honey and banana mixture.

    Having a beautiful facial skin isn't always easy. This is often obstructed by the occurrence of acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, etc. Nevertheless, even though age spots and wrinkles are a naturally occurring consequence of the aging process, their prominence and appearance can actually be managed.

    You're probably wondering how to achieve this? one way, and probably the safest one is to use natural ingredients which have no side effects, both short and long term. For that purpose, take a look at some of the best facial homemade masks for a smooth and youthful skin.

    Cinnamon, lemon, and honey mask:
    Thanks to cinnamon, you will lower the effects of bacterial infections since it possesses anti-microbial properties. Furthermore, if you have problems with acne, they will soon disappear thanks to nutmeg, that is, its anti-inflammatory properties. Honey and lemon will disinfect the skin and promote quicker healing of the acne.

    The recipe Needed:
    1 tsp of organic honey
    1 tsp of lemon juice
    1 tsp of cinnamon
    1 tsp of nutmeg

    Preparation: mix all of the ingredients until you get a homogeneous mixture. If you have sensitive skin, dilute the mixture with some water or exclude the lemon juice. Next, apply the mask onto your face avoiding the mouth and eye area. Leave the mask to react for half an hour. Afterwards, rinse the face with warm water and apply some moisturizing cream.

    Turmeric and aloe-vera mask:
    Turmeric and aloe-vera are two ingredients rich in enzymes, nutrients, and polysaccharides. They will cleanse your skin and help you maintain the natural PH of the skin. Mix a tsp of aloe-vera pulp with some ground turmeric powder. Next, apply the mask onto your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Afterwards, rinse the face with warm water.

    Honey and milk mask:
    Mix honey and milk to make a mask that will soothe your facial skin if it's inflamed and irritated.

    The recipe Needed:
    1 tbsp of yogurt or milk
    1 tbsp of honey

    Preparation: mix the ingredients and then use a cotton ball to apply the mask onto your face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash off the face.

    Banana and avocado mask:

    Preparation: first, chop up the banana and avocado and then put them in the blender. If you have organic honey or olive oil, add a bit to the mixture. Blend it until you get a homogenous mixture. Next, apply the blend onto your face and leave it for 30 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water.

    Honey and papaya mask:
    Papaya is a highly recommendable ingredient for the skin because of its anti-aging properties. It will also strengthen the skin and make it look younger. It's full of enzymes known as papains-they prevent the formation of pus and lower inflammation.

    One of our most important physical attributes is definitely the hair. This is why we spend a lot of money and time on different treatments to make our hair more beautiful. However, if you're tired of spending too much money on hair products and treatments, there is a more alternative approach to this matter

    One of the main problems with the hair is its loss. Hair loss can be a consequence of stress, hormonal changes, etc. Moreover, newest studies show that food plays a major role in the hair loss process. That is, a person who leads a poor diet can experience excessive hair loss due to lack of nutrients. Adults have between 100000 and 150000 hairs which grow and fall continuously for a cycle, known as hair cycle.

    According to experts, the average daily shedding of hairs is 60 to 100 hairs. Everything that surpasses this number is a cause for concern.

    Hence, the natural remedy presented below will help you grow your hair really quick, without having to spend too much. Avoid the over-the-counter products against hair loss which come with dangerous side effects and, what's more, not everyone is able to afford them. Instead, follow this recipe and prepare your own, 100% effective remedy against hair loss:

    Half a banana
    One egg yolk
    A tbsp of organic honey
    Half a glass of beer

    For those who don't know, bunions are salt buildups caused by an inflammation in the body or by wearing tight and uncomfortable shoes. Statistically speaking, women are more prone to them than men, even though the male population also suffers from this health issue.

    Hence, although they're not necessarily painful, they do influence the quality of a person's life. That is, they're definitely unattractive and a real obstacle for finding the right shoes. One solution is surgery. However, if you don't want to go under the knife, you can always try out a more alternative approach.

    Painlessly, this remedy will solve your bunion problems once and for all and you will successfully restore the normal shape of your feet.

    The recipe

    300 ml of water
    A tbsp of crushed bay leaves

    First, boil the leaves for 5 minutes and then put them into a thermos. Leave the content overnight and strain it in the morning.

    Drink the tea in small sips during the entire day. Repeat the procedure for a whole week.

    Important to know:
    During this period, your urge for urination will significantly increase. Don't worry, as this is an indicator that the salt deposits are dissolving properly and are stimulating the bladder.

    Usually, baldness is associated with aging. However, there are a lot of other factors that can contribute to premature baldness like stress, weight loss, type of food, etc. Hair loss is a huge issue in both women and men, and, often times, losing hair leads to low self-esteem and loss of confidence.

    For this purpose, there are numerous store-bought products for treatment of hair loss, as well as hair transplantation- a rather expensive procedure. However, the problem is that not everyone who's struggling with baldness is able to afford it.

    Luckily, there are more alternative measures when it comes to hair loss. Namely, the recipe that you're about to see below is a very beneficial remedy for hair loss:

    2 tbsp of castor oil
    1 egg yolk
    1 tbsp of organic raw honey

    Mix all of the ingredients well until you get a homogenous mixture.

    Massage the content into your hair and then cover it with a shower cap. Leave it for 3 hours. Afterwards, rinse your hair as usually. Repeat this procedure twice per week for 2 months until you notice improvement.

    Smoking increases the risk of heart disease and lung cancer, but even before those potentially deadly diseases develop, regular smokers are more likely to begin losing their teeth. A new study from britain's university of birmingham and the german institute of human nutrition determined that men who smoke are 3.6 times more prone to lose their teeth than non-smokers, while among women smokers the risk is 2.5 times higher. The researchers based their conclusions on data gathered from 23, 376 participants in a long-term study in germany. Part of the problem is that smoking is a strong risk factor in promoting tooth decay and gum disease, both of which can lead to tooth loss. The investigators noted that smoking can mask bleeding gums, a key symptom of gum disease, so that a smoker's gums may look healthier than they actually are. The good news is that quitting smoking can reverse the increased risk of tooth loss, although the researchers wrote that it could take more than 10 years for the risk to equal that of someone who never smoked.

    I've always been a huge believer in exercise for treating depression. If I skip even two days of working out, my mood begins to dip and I feel much more fragile.

    Exercise is the one piece in my recovery from depression that has never failed me. Even on my sickest days, a hard workout will lift me from the weight of sadness and give me a respite for a small period of time following my swim or run.

    Back in 400 b. C, hippocrates wrote, eating alone will not keep a man well. He must also exercise

    But only 20 percent of americans get the recommended 150 minutes of strength and cardiovascular physical activity per week, and 80 million americans are entirely inactive.

    A recent time magazine cover story examined the new science of exercise and how it can be used as medicine for even the sickest patients. Time mandy oakland writers, if there were a drug that could do for human health everything that exercise can, it would likely be the most valuable pharmaceutical ever developed.

    How exercise changes the brain
    In the past, scientists found that exercise benefits the heart, muscles, lungs, and bones. New research, however, is focusing on how it improves the brain: less depression, better memory, and quicker learning. Studies suggest that exercise is the best way to prevent or delay the onset of alzheimer disease.

    It's an area of active research; in fact, next year, the national institutes of health (nih) will launch a six-year, $170 million study with a group of about 3, 000 sedentary people ranging in age from children to the elderly.

    For now, oaklander explains, scientists know that exercise improves blood flow to the brain, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and new brain cells. This is partly due to the protein bdnf (brain-derived neurotrophic factor).

    Writes oaklander, bdnf triggers the growth of new neurons and helps repair and protect brain cells from degeneration. marcas bamman, phd, an exercise physiologist interviewed in the article, believes exercise is regenerative medicine that is capable of restoring and repairing things that are broken.

    Exercise also increases levels of a molecule that protects telomeres: sections of dna or distinctive structures found at the ends of our chromosomes.

    As we get older, our cells divide over and over again, and our telomeres get shorter. Telomere length is a biomarker of cellular aging and, in some cases, can predict illness and death.

    In a study published in november 2015 in medicine science in sports & exercise, researchers from the university of mississippi in university and the university of california in san francisco gathered data from 6, 500 participants ranging in age from 20 to 84. They found clear associations between engaging in any type of exercise and lower odds of having unusually short telomeres.

    Exercise and depression:
    We've known for decades that exercise can decrease depression symptoms, but in a study published in february 2016 in the journal of neuroscience, investigators at the university of california davis medical center found that exercise increased the level of the neurotransmitters glutamate and gaba, both of which are depleted in the brains of people with depression and anxiety.

    The researchers evaluated 38 healthy volunteers who rode stationary bikes at a vigorous rate about 85 percent of their maximum heart rate for up to 20 minutes in three sessions, measuring gaba and glutamate levels in the brain immediately before and after the workouts.

    Post-exercise scans showed significant neurotransmitter increases in parts of the brain that regulate emotions and cognitive functions. Participants who had exercised three or four times in the week leading up to the study had longer lasting effects. The researchers also scanned the brains of six people who didn't exercise and saw no change in their neurotransmitter levels.

    The study showed that aerobic exercise activates the pathways that replenish these neurotransmitters, allowing the brain to communicate with the body.

    More exercise is not always better:
    In case all this research makes you want to go out and run a marathon, sit back down. You don't need to run five hours straight to reap the benefits. In fact, 10 minutes might be enough.

    Martin gibala, phd, an exercise physiologist at mcmaster university in hamilton, ontario, wanted to find out if it was possible to absorb the health gains of exercise in a small amount of time. So he and a team of researchers conducted a study, published in april 2016 in one, in which they compared the effects of a 10-minute workout to those of a standard 50-minute session.

    They measured the current aerobic fitness levels and bodies ability to use insulin properly in 25 out-of-shape young men. They then biopsied the men muscles to see how well they functioned on a cellular level.

    Half of the men did a 10-minute interval workout that involved one minute of intense exercise (three sets of 20-second sprints), and the other half did 50 minutes of continuous exercise. At the end of the 12 weeks, both groups showed identical gains: better endurance and cardiorespiratory fitness, improved insulin resistance, and better muscle health.

    Apparently, intense exercise even if it's a minute is more metabolically demanding on your body, so you continue to burn calories after your workout. These short bursts of intense activity can trigger the same physiological changes as longer workouts.

    One of the best pieces of news, writes oaklander in time, is that so much of what we already do counts as physical activity.

    We just have to make smart choices throughout our day, like choosing to take the stairs or parking the car far away, so we keep our bodies in motion and our brains working well.

    There's no doubt that eating fruit is important to our overall health and wellbeing. Fruit is healthy for you, we all know that, but, it's good to know that eating it should follow some general guidelines to fully benefit our health. It's just not as simple as putting it into our mouths whenever we feel like it. Learn about the proper ways to eat fruit and your whole body will thank you with less digestive problems and tons more energy.

    Incorporating fruit into our diet, the proper way, gives our digestive system more powerful benefits through vitamin intake and improved digestion. Looking at the nutrition of fruit, most fruits are a great source of fiber, potassium, vitamin c and folate and so much more. Their nutrients help guard against disease, lower rates of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure. However, eating fruit carelessly without any nutritional knowledge could bring on more problems to our health than benefits. Here is the major rule about eating fruit:

    Fruit should be eaten alone or with other fruit on an empty stomach.

    This is because when fruit is eaten, the digestive process works very quickly and our body uses different enzymes to digest the fruit. The simple sugars contained in fruit need time to be completely absorbed by your body. When fruits are eaten alone, your stomach can more easily process all of the nutrients, fibre and the simple sugars contained in the fruit. This is the optimal'proper way' to benefit from the fruit you eat. If you eat fruit close to a meal, especially right after a larger meal and combine with other foods, it's held in the stomach too long along with other foods and will rot and ferment in the gut. If you experience indigestion, heartburn, burping and and other digestive discomforts and you blame on the meal - it could be the combination of the food, the fermentation with fruit that causes your upset stomach. If left uncontrolled it could lead to other health problems that stem from the digestive tract.

    Applying this rule is very simple. We eat approximately 3 large meals a day, so space out your fruit servings in between. If this means you need to glance at the clock occasionally and calculate when you could eat the apple you brought along with you, then you do that. And aim to have it about 1 hour before a meal, or 2 hours after your meal. For heavier meals, like pasta or burgers, you need to let that food digest for even longer before you add fruit with all its acid into your stomach, about 3-4 hours. If you've just had a mixed green salad for lunch, same rules apply but for a much shorter time, about 1.5 hours.

    The best time to eat a bounty of fruit is either first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, or as a mid-morning snack (which I prefer) - in between breakfast and lunch. It's a good idea, to just eat more fruit at one time, whether it's fruit salad, an apple or a fruit smoothie. (3-4 servings of fruit is a proper daily requirement, that's 2 1/2 - 2 cups of fruit). If you feel very hungry after your fruit servings, pay attention to what you've had for breakfast and maybe your meal planning needs to be adjusted. You should be able to wait it out about 1-2 hours with success. That will ensure all the fruit is processed and gone into your body to do what it's supposed to do.

    Definitely avoid eating fruit close to bedtime as there's plenty of sugar in fruit to spike up your energy and keep you up when you need your sleep.

    Smoothie lovers! it is fine to consume nut milk or coconut milk with fruit, but in small amounts and not every time. Therefore, nut butters, nut milk, or non-dairy yogourt (such as soy) will not strain the digestive system too much. And adding a single serving of a low-glycemic fruit, such as an apple to your green smoothie will be fine and will not create a lot of problems for you as long as you keep the fruit serving to a minimum and it too is consumed apart from a larger meal. However, ideally it is best to stick with eating raw fruit alone - or leave alone!

    Dried fruit holds the same recommendations. Keep in mind it's also too sweet and too addictive. Limiting portions of the dried fruit you eat is essential - think of a date as a special occasion ;)

    If you do eat fruit on an empty stomach, you will gain the proper nutrients that fruit - nature's perfect gift - will offer to your health and well being. You will avoid most digestive problems, feel energized, promote weight loss and you'll look and feel fantastic because your body will be fully absorbing all the vitamins, fiber and healthy carbohydrates that it needs to function in good health.

    You know that eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly are important habits for a healthy heart. But did you know that you could still be undermining all your efforts with some surprisingly common bad habits?

    A number of activities that people don't think twice about can have a negative impact on heart health says Kevin R. Campbell, MD, a cardiac electrophysiologist at north carolina heart and vascular, unc health care in raleigh. Check out this list of heart-damaging habits to see if it's time to make changes to your routine:

    1. Sitting all day:
    Compared to people with an active lifestyle, those who don’t move enough and tend to sit for five hours or more each day have double the risk for heart failure, according to a study published in january 2014 in the american heart association (aha) journal circulation: heart failure.

    If your job requires sitting at a desk all day, get up and take a five-minute walk every hour. This small tweak in your routine can keep your arteries flexible and blood flowing properly, protecting against the negative effects of being sedentary, according to an indiana university study published in august 2014 in medicine science in sports exercise.

    2. Overindulging in alcohol
    Drinking too much alcohol can lead to high blood pressure, stroke, and obesity all of which increase your risk for heart disease. The aha reports that excessive drinking more than two drinks a day for men and one drink for women can interrupt your normal heart rhythm and cause heart failure. It's okay to enjoy the occasional cocktail or glass of wine, but you can protect your heart by sticking to the aha guidelines.

    3. Stressing too much
    Stress spurs the body to release adrenaline, which temporarily affects how your body functions your heart rate increases, and your blood pressure may rise. Over time, too much stress can damage blood vessels in the heart and increase your risk for heart attack and stroke, Dr. Campbell says.

    To minimize the harmful effects of stress, the aha recommends the following:
    Find a release. Share your feelings by talking with a trusted friend or family member.
    Exercise. Relieve mental tension by engaging in physical activity. Aim for about 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise on most days of the week.
    Plan your day. Prioritize tasks and plan ahead to help prevent rushing to get everything done.

    4. Not flossing
    Your dentist is right: flossing is important but not just for your teeth. A study published in may 2014 in the journal of periodontal research found that people with coronary heart disease who flossed experienced fewer cardiovascular problems. What's the connection? certain studies, including one published in july 2013 in international scholarly research notices, show that bacteria associated with gum disease promote inflammation in the body, and inflammation has been associated with increased risk for heart disease, campbell explains.

    A variety of flossing tools are available to make the task a little easier in hard-to-reach areas, from flossing picks to threaders that guide the floss.

    5. Overdoing it on salt
    Excessive sodium can lead to high blood pressure, a risk factor for heart disease, campbell says. Avoiding the saltshaker isn't too difficult, but what about hidden sodium? the national heart, lung, and blood institute (nhlbi) reports that processed foods including canned vegetables and soups lunch meats, frozen dinners, chips, and other salty snacks account for most of the salt americans consume. Be sure to read nutrition labels and compare products, choosing the one with the lowest percent daily value for sodium. A rule of thumb to follow: the aha recommends that most people consume less than 1, 500 mg of sodium per day.

    6. Not getting enough sleep
    Your heart works hard all day, and if you don't get enough sleep, your cardiovascular system doesn't get the rest it needs. Your heart rate and blood pressure dip during the first phase of sleep (the non-rem phase), then rise and fall in response to your dreams during the second phase (rem sleep). These changes throughout the night seem to promote cardiovascular health, according to the nhlbi.

    Chronic sleep deprivation can also lead to high resting cortisol and adrenaline levels, similar to levels that you experience in a stressful situation, campbell explains. He recommends that adults get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. Teens and young adults should aim for 9 to 10 hours, he says.

    Make your heart-healthy changes stick

    lifestyle changes are a process and do not occur quickly, says frank j. Sileo, phd, a psychologist at the center for psychological enhancement in ridgewood, n. J. In fact, according to a study that appeared in the british journal of general practice in 2012, it takes about 66 days for a practiced behavior to become a habit. So practice patience and follow these steps to make your heart-healthy changes stick:

    Write out a list of the changes you want to make. Putting goals down on paper makes them tangible and creates a guide you can follow, Dr. Sileo says. Just be sure you're as realistic and specific as possible.

    Break down your goals into manageable milestones. Don't try to make all the changes at once. most people run into difficulties and failure when they try to change too much too fast, he says. Make sure each milestone feels attainable.

    Gradually add new changes. When a change starts to become second nature, add another goal. Keep doing this until you reach the end of your list.

    If you experience a setback, don't give up. Remember that as changes turn into habits, you'll be on your way to the ultimate goal: maintaining a healthier heart.

    Butter is a beloved ingredient that plays a starring role in some of our favorite recipes from cakes to quick breads to pasta dishes. But too much of a good thing can pose a problem: the fat found in butter is mostly the saturated variety the kind that clogs arteries and raises ldl (bad) cholesterol, a contributing factor in heart disease.

    For those trying to lower their cholesterol, the american heart association recommends reducing saturated fat intake to 11 to 13 grams meaning that 2 tablespoons of butter has already put you over the daily limit. It's safe to say that butter should be an occasional treat, but what about all of our favorite everyday recipes that call for its luckily, there are a handful of ingredients that can easily stand in for butter in your favorite recipes. You'll still enjoy all the creamy texture and taste, but cut back on fat and up the nutritional value in the process. Whether you're topping a piece of toast or baking up a cake, these six healthy swaps will blend seamlessly into your dish and dare we say it's taste even better than butter.

    Avocado: Is buttered toast a breakfast staple in your house? Spreading avocado on your bread is just as delicious and provides a dose of fiber, vitamin K, and potassium. While high in fat, it's monounsaturated fat the heart-healthy kind which helps to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. And you can bake with avocado too: simply sub in equal parts pureed avocado for the amount of butter called for in your baked goods.

    Olive oil: Olive oil is a popular ingredient in salad dressings and stir fries but did you know that you can bake with it too? simply use 3/4 cup of olive oil for every cup of butter called for in a recipe. Olive oil is also an effective butter substitute in pasta sauces and mashed potatoes. Touted as a heart-healthy staple by the american heart association, olive oil is loaded with healthy unsaturated fats that are worth the extra calories.

    Greek yogurt: When you're looking to add protein and moisture to your baked goods, without a ton of extra calories and fat, greek yogurt is the answer. The popular health food lends an amazing velvety texture to breads and cakes, while adding a hefty dose of protein. Use cup of greek yogurt for every cup of butter required.

    Applesauce: Another way to ensure moist, delicious baked goods while saving tons of calories is opting for applesauce, which works particularly well in sweet recipes. Applesauce is a fabulous swap when baking sweets because it adds moisture and fiber to your baked goods while saving tons of calories. Use equal amounts applesauce for the butter called for in your recipe.

    Nut butter: Looking for the perfect topping for that bagel or muffin? make peanut or almond butter your spread of choice. Much like avocados, nut butters taste great spread on bread and toast, and offer up heart-healthy fats, potassium, and fiber unlike butter, which can boast very few nutritional benefits. Sprinkle on sliced strawberries or bananas for a tasty and satisfying breakfast.

    Pumpkin puree: Coffee cakes and muffins are a great place to swap in pumpkin puree. Not only will you benefit from added nutrients like vitamin k, potassium, and fiber, but you'll also infuse delicious flavor into your baked goods for very little extra calories. Use cup of pumpkin puree for every cup of butter called for. Bonus: you can also swap in equal amounts pumpkin puree for any oil called for in baked goods, too.

    1. Laugh more:
    There's a reason they say laughter is the best medicine. Studies from the university of maryland show that while relieving stress, laughter promotes a smooth blood flow and healthy blood vessels.

    2. Don't worry so much about calories:
    Calories aren't the enemy. Calories are energy. If you boil down everything you eat to meaningless math, it takes all the fun out of food. Nutrition isn't just simple numbers, but a commitment to knowing what's in what you eat and taking ownership of it.

    3. Get a dog:
    According to research, people who have dogs are twice as likely as those without to engage in regular exercise, probably because that adorable little mutt takes a half hour of schlepping before he shits.

    4. Eat actual food:
    If you can point to the food in cheetos, I'll give you a dollar. That doesn't mean you can't eat cheetos, just remember that it's empty calories, so you need to balance it out with something that has actual nutrients in it.

    5. Switch to water:
    Americans are chronic snackers, but routinely filling up with water instead not only helps you meet your daily needs (of up to a gallon a day) but cuts back on that constant craving for nosh.

    6. Eat more fish:
    Nutritionists have long argued for the merits of the mediterranean diet (high in white meat and fish), because fish is high in omega-3s. There's a reason that italians live longer. Having a healthy amount of fish can lower your risk of heart disease by up to 33%.

    7. Drink your wine, shelby:
    Although moderate alcohol consumption in general helps prevent blood clots and artery build up while lowering cholesterol, the antioxidants in wine are argued to have a particularly positive effect ; so long as your don't drink too much. The same goes for the antioxidants in coffee. Moderation is key.

    8. Be active in your downtime:
    You don't have to go on a 30-mile run, but switching that cafe date to a coffee walk-and-talk allows you to get outside and burn calories while you have your gossip session.

    9. Snack with fruit:
    But of course, we all love to snack anyway (because hummus) so just nosh healthier, and there's no better snack than nature's dessert. Grapes, bananas and strawberries are perfect replacements for those tasty-looking doritos.

    10. Or grab your nuts instead:
    Masturbation is great (and a wonderful form of cardio), but I'm talking about the food kind. Nuts are a great form of protein and a great substitute for snacks that are high in fat. It helps get rid of that bad cholesterol your doctor is always warning you about.

    11. Stop smoking:
    You won't gain weight. I quit six months ago, and I've never been healthier in my life. It helped me stay active, when I wasn't constantly gasping for breath, and promote a healthier mentality. When you're smoking, it's not just the cigarettes that are killing you. It's you.

    12. Take work breaks:
    In addition to being mind-numbing, sitting at a desk for hours on end has been shown to have a negative effect on overall health, while decreasing your life span and your will to live. Thus, get up and move around. Take a piss break. Refill your water. Go talk to the co-worker you have a crush on. Just get up and do something.

    13. Take your partner dancing:
    Guys, you know how she always wants to go out? take her. While satisfying her needs, dancing also burns an estimated 150 to 300 calories an hour, depending on if its slow dancing or a full-on twerk. Twerk for your heart.

    14. Floss:
    Statistics from the mayo clinic show that regular flossing can add up to three years onto your life, and data from past experience shows it makes you much better to make out with.

    15. Eat more earlier:
    There's a reason you should never skip breakfast: starting out with your heavier meals early gives your body time to burn those calories off throughout the day. Get a big breakfast, a smaller lunch and a light dinner. In spain, dinner is really just a glorified snack, so you don't take those calories to bed with you.

    16. Go for a walk after you eat:
    While helping burn calories, it's a great way to promote blood flow and healthy digestion. It also staves off that nasty food coma you get after eating way too much, which I almost always do.

    17. Exercise portion control:
    Americans are chronic buffeters, eating until you feel miserable. Try the french way instead. The french stop eating when you feel full satiated but not so full you want to puke. It also saves room for dessert, which we all love.

    18. Clean when you're angry:

    You know how your mom always washes dishes when she's mad? there's a reason. While promoting a clean living space (which is good for mental health), it's a low form of cardio and a nice stress-relief, lowering blood pressure by taking your mind off nagging problems. Don't dwell. Scrub.

    19. Throw some cardio into that lifting routine:
    Building muscle mass is great for your rate of heart disease, but a workout routine with variety helps promote overall fitness and cardio vascular health. Besides, working out is more enjoyable when you get to mix it up a bit. Sign up for a spin class or rumba. I don't know what rumba is, but it sounds fun, right?

    20. Knit:
    Research indicates that relaxing activities like knitting, sewing, crocheting or doing crossword puzzles, cryptograms and sudoku is good for your heart and overall wellness by lowering your heart rate and your stress level.

    21. Do it with friends:
    Having regular workout buddies isn't just good for spotting. You're more likely to stick to your fitness goals when you have other people holding you accountable. It's harder to skip a day if there's someone waiting to work out with you.

    22. Incentivize your goals:
    Last year when I started marathon training, I put ten cents into savings for every mile I ran, which I would use on a splurge. It's not much money, but it helps you be more intentional about your goals and makes the experience of training feel more real. Also, who doesn't love treating yourself?

    23. Make the switch from soda:
    This doesn't mean you can't have a coca-cola as a treat, but as a staple in your diet, switch to other healthier drinks that tickle your sweet tooth instead. I'm a gatorade or nake juice person's all the flavor, but with some pretense to being healthy.

    24. Eat chocolate:
    In addition to being delicious, dark chocolate has been shown to lower risks of heart disease, help stop blood clotting and prevent cancer. It also makes you a nicer person to be around.

    25. Get cardio in the bedroom:
    That's right: nookie isn't just good for your blue balls. It's also good for your heart, a form of both exercise and endorphins. (for why this is good: see legally blonde.) studies also show it lowers your risk of heart disease and helps you keep a healthiest blood pressure.

    26. Go for a protein smoothie instead of ice cream:
    Everyone loves desserts and you'll never hear me shame ben and jerry's, but a great alternative is to sneak something healthy into that sweet treat. Just because it's tasty doesn't mean it can't also be secretly good for you.

    27. Love your body, because it's yours:
    Working out doesn't have to be body negative. Real exercise is also fitness of the mind about choosing to be happier and healthier. It's easier to do than when you look at exercise as self-care instead of self-flagellating. Don't treat it like punishment. Just make the intention to start finally treating yourself right. There's no better love than the kind we give ourselves.

    1/11 your kitchen can help you lose weight
    So you've decided to get healthy and shed the extra weight. Now what? while making the decision to take control of your health is an important step, actually starting can be daunting. So make cleaning out your kitchen and restocking it for your new lifestyle your first goal. Start by tossing out processed foods, refined grains like white bread and rice, and freezer temptations like frozen meals and ice cream. Now you're ready to fill your kitchen with items that will make healthy meals and snacks simple to prepare: from your refrigerator to your spice rack, there are all kinds of foods you should keep on hand to set yourself up for weight-loss success.

    2/11 a fruit bowl on the counter
    The time period between when you arrive home and when dinner is served can be a tricky one for those on a diet. Having a bowl filled with fruit will encourage you to reach for an apple or banana over unhealthy and caloric, processed snacks. In fact, october 2015 study published in health education behavior found that those who kept a fruit bowl on the counter weighed 13 pounds less than their neighbors who didn't. On the flip side those who kept soda, cereal, and cookies on the counter weighed 26, 13, and 8 pounds more, respectively. So keep fruit front and center to encourage healthy snacking" all fresh fruits are great for us because they're excellent sources of vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber, palinski-wade says. Stock your kitchen with plenty of portable, easy-to-eat fruits like berries, apples, pears, clementines, bananas, and grapes.

    3/11 healthy oils (in an oil mister)
    Making over your pantry oil selection, and learning to swap in heart-healthy oil for butter or shortening, is one of the simplest ways to start cooking more healthfully. monounsaturated fats, such as olive and canola oil, are a great choice because they have been shown to lower ldl (bad) cholesterol, says ruth s. Pupo, rd, cde, nutritionist at white memorial medical center in los angeles. Polyunsaturated oils, such as corn and safflower, contain omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, and have been shown to decrease blood pressure and triglyceride levels because oils are calorie-dense, invest in an oil mister to spray oil on pans and food instead of pouring it straight from the bottle, which makes it hard to control how much you are using.

    4/11 a loaded spice rack
    Spices are essential for preparing healthy meals at home, as they provide calorie-free seasoning that adds great flavor to foods while eliminating the need for butter, cream, or excess oil. While it can be tempting to pick up salt and herb blends, many are high in sodium, so pick up a large variety of spices and create your own blends instead. Cayenne pepper is essential: not only does its spicy taste add a kick to bland recipes, but studies have also shown that it may provide a slight metabolism boost, which is critical in shedding those extra pounds, says in palinski-wade, rd, author of belly fat diet for dummies. Herbs such as basil, rosemary, and oregano are great for homemade sauces, baked potatoes, and roasted vegetables. Other healthy spices include garlic, which has been found to help reduce cholesterol levels, and cinnamon, which can help control blood sugar and curb sugar cravings.

    5/11 a well-stocked freezer
    While sometimes filled with unhealthy frozen meals and ice cream, your freezer can be your best friend when trying to lose weight if you stock it right. Frozen veggies are just as nutritious as fresh (and often cheaper) and can be defrosted, tossed with seasonings from your spice rack, and served up as an easy dinner side in minutes. Frozen berries are another smart freezer staple that can be blended into smoothiesor tossed into oatmeal for an instant antioxidant boost. And don't forget about lean protein: grilled chicken breasts, fish, and shrimp can all be stored in the freezer, ready to be cooked up for a filling weeknight dinner.

    6/11 cheap protein options
    Lean meats and fish are excellent sources of protein, but don't overlook the canned-foods aisle. Beans are an excellent source of soluble fiber, the type that helps to reduce bad cholesterol palinski-wade says. They are also a very inexpensive source of quality protein and can be added to everything from salads to chili to soups and more canned salmon (ideally wild, not farmed) and sardines are other good choices both deliver omega-3 fatty acids and calcium. Always read labels to make sure you're buying foods with the lowest amount of additives possible. Before you start cooking with canned foods, remember to rinse them whenever possible to rid them of the extra sodium that comes from the canning process.

    7/11 grab-and-go breakfast staples
    You've heard it time and time again breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And when embarking on a weight-loss plan, starting your day on a healthy foot with a satisfying meal will keep blood-sugar levels in check and encourage you to continue to make healthy choices. Many people use lack-of-time as an excuse for skipping breakfast. So that you don't fall into that trap, be sure to stock your kitchen with easy-to-prepare breakfast staples that will take minimal time for you to whip up in the morning. Oats are a fiber-rich option that can be cooked up in no time at all just add a swirl of nut butter for protein, fresh berries for a dose of antioxidants, or a dusting of cinnamon for a calorie-free punch of flavor. Other easy options that can be whipped up in minutes include greek yogurt with nuts and berries, whole-grain toast with nut butter, or a smoothie.

    8/11 plain nuts for snacking
    Nuts, like pistachios and almonds, are a healthy snack choice with high-protein content and healthy fats that can help facilitate weight loss and boost heart health, says pupo. When individuals consumed 15 to 20 almonds per day as part of a weight-loss diet, they increased weight loss 62 percent more than when following a standard weight-loss diet she adds. Keep in mind that nuts are fairly high in calories, so be sure to measure out proper portion sizes instead of grabbing them by the handful. A 1-ounce serving of almonds (23 nuts) and pistachios (49 kernels) both have about 160 calories. In moderation, they can be a great healthy snack or a crunchy salad topping to replace croutons.

    9/11 sliced veggies
    Another great standby to have on hand when hunger hits are sliced veggies, which have a satisfying crunch and provide a filling dose of fiber for minimal calories. Take time on the weekend to chop up a variety of fresh veggies carrots, celery, bell peppers, and radishes all hold up well once sliced and store them in baggies or containers in the fridge. Not only can you grab a handful between mealtimes or serve them up with a few tablespoons of hummus or salsa, but they'll also be ready to grab on your way out the door so that you always have a snack on hand to keep blood-sugar levels stable.

    10/11 an assortment of grains
    Whole grains provide an easy, nutrient-packed base for a variety of meals. And while brown rice may be the go-to, it's only scratching the surface. Ancient grains like quinoa, farro, bulgar, millet, amaranth, teff, and freekeh are all great options that offer up a unique taste and texture to help keep your meals interesting. Experiment with different grains, and choose three or four varieties to always have on hand in your pantry. Season with herbs and spices for a flavorful side dish, top with veggies and lean protein for a filling lunch or dinner, or use as the filling for a healthy burrito.

    11/11 a pitcher of flavored water
    For many, the hardest things to say goodbye to are sugary beverages like juice, sweetened teas and lemonades, and soda. But these are some of the most important things to toss out of your kitchen. Not only are they loaded with empty calories that don't fill you up, but frequent drinkers of sugary beverages are more likely to develop high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Plus, upping your water intake is key to staying hydrated, which keeps thirst from being misinterpreted as hunger, aiding in weight loss. To make water more interesting, experiment with a variety of calorie-free flavor boosters like lemons and limes, cucumbers, berries, and herbs like basil and mint. Keep a pitcher of flavored water in your fridge where it's easy to see, which will encourage you to drink water throughout the day.

    How much nutrition advice did your doctor dole out at your last checkup? chances are, none. Most appointments last less than 15 minutes, which doesn't leave time for a thorough diet assessment, but that doesn't mean that physicians shouldn't broach the subject at all. Here are 10 things your doctor may not tell you about nutrition, and what you need to know if they don't.

    1. Nutrition is important. Eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight are two of the most effective ways to prevent the most common chronic diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers, and good nutrition can also optimize treatment and reduce complications in people who already have these conditions. Yet, most doctors spend little to no time addressing these issues with patients. Although doctors need to prioritize their time during frustratingly brief office visits, spending just one to two minutes emphasizing nutrition and physical activity is feasible and much-deserved, given food's broad impact on health.

    2. I didn't receive professional training in nutrition. According to a 2010 survey, medical schools dedicate on average about 20 hours of student's 4-year training to nutrition education, and much of that instruction focuses on biochemical pathways (shockingly, memorizing the steps in glucose metabolism isn't all that useful when it comes time to counsel patients on foods that can lower cholesterol). Groups of dedicated physicians are now (finally) championing the issue of comprehensive nutrition education as part of doctors' medical training, but these changes are happening way too slowly. Doctors must get up to speed on basic nutrition science and guidelines in order to offer the best care possible.

    Has your doc asked how many of these you're eating a day?

    3. Calories aren't the only thing that matter. In the interest of efficiency, many physicians address nutrition and weight control using the simple mantra, calories in, calories out. energy balance is indeed essential, but the quality of calories is just as important as quantity. Choosing nutrient-dense, whole foods, including vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains will help you meet your micronutrient needs, improve digestive health, and feel full on fewer calories, among other benefits.

    4. There is no best diet. Some physicians advocate one particular diet because it has performed well in research studies or worked well for other patients (or even for themselves), and they can be pretty rigid in their beliefs. However, research shows that a multitude of different eating styles can be healthful, and the one-size-fits-all-approach often backfires. Nutrition counseling should be individualized in order to make lifestyle changes sustainable.

    5. Losing weight isn't easy, and I understand that. Behavior change, whether losing weight, modifying eating habits, or incorporating a fitness routine, takes tremendous effort and discipline. There is no simple solution, despite how matter-of-fact your physician's advice may be, and a little empathy from your doc can go a long way towards building rapport and trust. Doctors who recognize the challenges associated with healthy living and encourage and troubleshoot rather than scold are more likely to break through to patients.

    6. We need to set some nutrition goals. Your doctor may generically encourage you to eat more fruits and vegetables or eat less red meat, but blanket statements like that are easily forgotten. A better approach is to work together to set 1 to 2 specific health goals to conquer before your next visit, like eating 3 cups of vegetables a day or swapping your afternoon snack for a heart-friendly handful of nuts.

    7. Eating better can improve your mental and emotional health. Doctors tend to focus on the physiological benefits of a healthier diet, like lowering blood pressure or blood sugar, but the psychological rewards can be just as powerful. Making smart food choices can boost mood, energy, and mental focus.

    8. You're wasting your money on that multivitamin. Most physicians breeze over the topic of supplements, but some may suggest taking a multivitamin as a way to fill in nutritional gaps. However, if you are a generally healthy person who eats a relatively varied diet, a multivitamin is unlikely to provide any benefit. A growing body of research shows that that a prophylactic multivitamin doesn't reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, cognitive decline, or other chronic disease in the general population.

    9. Your diet is low in x you should eat more y. Your doctor may tell you to eat more foods high in calcium, folate, iron, or fiber to help with a particular health condition, but many (understandably) don't know which foods actually contain these nutrients in the highest amounts. You'll want to consult a reputable source or work with a registered dietitian to identify specific foods to increase in your diet.

    10. You're not drinking enough water. In serious and critical settings, doctors are laser-focused on patients' hydration status, but they rarely ask about it during routine visits. Chronic, low-grade dehydration can cause fatigue, headaches, and constipation and contribute to more serious problems like kidney stones and kidney disease, so make sure you're sipping enough water and other low-cal liquids to produce pale, straw-colored urine.

    Fiber has long been known to promote good digestive health and regularity, but those are only two of the many benefits fiber offers. Consider that a study published in theamerican journal of clinical nutrition found that people who ate a high-fiber diet of oats, barley, eggplant, okra, and other vegetables lowered their cholesterol by close to 30 percent after four weeks. In addition to improving digestive health and lowering cholesterol levels, a high-fiber diet can help you reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, and keep your weight in check. Here's a closer look at each benefit.

    Fiber and digestion

    As fiber passes through the stomach and intestines, it absorbs water, adding bulk to the stool. This promotes regularity and reduces constipation, says james anderson, m. D, chair of the national fiber council" insoluble fiber, found in wheat bran, whole grains, and vegetables, speeds the passage of food through the stomach and intestines" he says. For more high-fiber foods, read easy ways to add fiber to your diet.

    Fiber and cholesterol

    Fiber is undigested starch, says Dr. Anderson, and as such, it traps cholesterol and drags it out of the body through the digestive system. Soluble fiber, found in oat bran, barley, oranges, apples, carrots, and dried beans, turns into a gel during the digestive process and prevents cholesterol, fat, and sugars from being absorbed by the body.

    Fiber and heart disease

    " when it comes to heart health, the importance of fiber in your diet cannot be overstated" says kathy kastan, president of womenheart, the national coalition for women with heart disease. And the coauthor of womenheart's all heart family cookbook.

    Several studies have shown that fiber reduces the risk of heart disease. In addition to the above-mentioned cholesterol study in the american journal of clinical nutrition, a study published in the journal of the american college of cardiology foundation that followed 39, 876 women for six years found that those who ingested an average of 26.3 grams of fiber daily were at lower risk for developing heart disease or having a heart attack than those who ate less.

    Fiber and diabetes

    A high-fiber diet may lower a person's risk for diabetes. Fiber slows the absorption of sugars, which can reduce glucose levels in the blood and prevent blood sugar spikes, says Dr. Anderson. Results of a study published in the archives of internal medicinesuggest that whole-grain fiber (the kind found in some breakfast cereals, breads, and crackers) may be more beneficial in reducing blood sugar than fruits and vegetables.

    Fiber and weight loss

    Fiber expands in the stomach and intestines, which creates a feeling of fullness. This means that after eating a fiber-rich meal, you'll typically feel fuller longer and may eat less throughout the day. In addition, because soluble fiber turns into a gel in the stomach, it binds to sugars, cholesterol, and fats and carries them, largely unabsorbed, through the digestive tract, says anderson.

    What about fiber and colon cancer?

    Can a high-fiber diet help prevent colon cancer? it's still unknown. Early studies on fiber's ability to lower the risk of colon cancer were promising, and it seems logical to researchers that fiber may have protective properties against this cancer, but more recent studies have been inconclusive.

    One of the most frustrating things about ankylosing spondylitis (as) is experiencing pain not from exertion, but from doing nothing more than trying to get a good night's sleep.

    Back pain the most common symptom of as and stiffness get worse with rest, so you're probably at your worst in the morning, just when you want to get your day started. You might also have pain and stiffness in other areas of your body, such as your neck, shoulders, hips, or feet.

    While it's important to work with your doctor to find the best medications for as, there are also some natural pain-relief strategies to help manage back pain and other symptoms, and you can use many of them every day:

    1. Exercise and stretching. if you have ankylosing spondylitis, you need to stay active to maintain your flexibility" advises rochella ostrowski, md, an assistant professor of rheumatology at the loyola university health system in maywood, ill" the best exercises are those that avoid high impact" she suggests working with a physical therapist or a personal trainer to get started. A fitness professional can design the right exercise and stretching program for you, including when to work out. Later in the day when you're less stiff may be the best time.

    2. Good posture. check your posture frequently at home and at work" Dr. Ostrowski says" make sure you're well-aligned and that you do gentle range-of-motion exercises often to avoid long periods of immobility" reinforce good posture by regularly checking your alignment against a wall. You don't want your spine to stiffen into a bent position, so aim for tall and straight.

    3. Good posture in bed. sleep posture is also important" ostrowski says" you need a firm bed and a pillow that supports your neck properly. Avoid a pillow that's too high. Sleeping on your belly is best for your posture, but some people can only sleep on their side or back. if you're in that group, try spending a few minutes of your awake time lying facedown on your bed. For comfort, you can turn your head from side to side. This exercise helps promote better daily posture. Work up to 20-minute sessions to help with back pain relief.

    4. Warm soaks. a warm bath or shower is a natural way to relieve the pain and stiffness of ankylosing spondylitis" ostrowski says" stretching to relieve pain and stiffness is also better after a warm shower. Stretching with cold joints and muscles isn't best" alternating hot and cold compresses on painful spots is another natural pain-relief strategy you can try.

    5. Acupuncture. This ancient technique that involves inserting thin needles through the skin may stimulate your body's natural pain relievers. studies on acupuncture for back pain relief have had mixed results" ostrowski says" I don't discourage it, and it's helped some people with back pain. according to the spondylitis association of america (saa), there's enough research supporting acupuncture for chronic pain relief to try it. There is a caveat, though: you must go to a trained and licensed acupuncture professional.

    6. Massage. massage therapy, when performed by a therapist accustomed to working with ankylosing spondylitis, may be helpful, ostrowski says. Massage may not only help relieve the pain and stiffness of as but also ease the stress commonly brought on by having a chronic condition.

    7. Yoga. yoga is a great natural pain reliever for ankylosing spondylitis, ostrowski says" you need to start with very basic poses and be patient, but if you work with an instructor who can modify the yoga positions for you, you can really benefit from this form of exercise" a 2013 review of yoga for low-back painpublished in the clinical journal of pain looked at 10 controlled trials involving 967 people. The conclusion: there was strong evidence for short-term and moderate evidence for long-term back pain relief from yoga.

    8. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (tens): tens involves passing an electric current through the skin. It may work on the same principle as acupuncture by bringing about the release of the body's natural pain relievers. Although there have been some studies on tens for back pain, results are mixed. Ostrowski says that tens may be an option physical therapists use for pain that's not responding to exercise and stretching.

    Other tips for ankylosing spondylitis pain relief

    While some people with ankylosing spondylitis benefit from chiropractic sessions, according to the saa, chiropractic treatment is not recommended for as. chiropractic care isn't advised for this type of back pain because changes from ankylosing spondylitis may increase the risk of injury during manipulation, ostrowski says.

    But there are a few other small steps you can take to help manage as pain naturally. i also recommend lots of deep breathing to keep your rib cage flexible, and I strongly advise against smoking" ostrowski says" avoid physical and emotional stress as much as possible, have a good support system, and make sure to get enough rest. Sometimes with ankylosing spondylitis, you just need to take life a little slower.
