Stop Drinking Alcohol And Lose Weight

Your body isn’t able to store the alcohol that you drink. It slows down its metabolism and stops processing fats and sugars. To further complicate matters, alcohol is full of empty calories. These calories average 7 per gram of alcohol. Over the course of time these calories add up and begin to weigh on you, literally.

Food Comparables

That rum and soda or whiskey and soda are comparable to a large sized muffin. Now picture how many drinks you had and focus on how many muffins you would have just eaten.

A glass of wine would be equivalent to a piece of cake.

A beer would be equivalent to a huge slice of pizza.

This gives you an idea of the empty calories that you’re consuming while obtaining no nutritional value.

Mixed Drinks

That juice that you’re mixing your drink with is laden with sugar and empty calories. Add that to the empty calories in your alcohol and you’re likely to consumer over half of your daily calorie allotment in two single drinks. That’s a lot of calories and if you continue in this fashion on a daily basis you’re likely to be gaining weight now.

Snacking

Most bars have snacks readily available. Most of these snacks are laden with sugar or salt or both. Salt and sugar can help make you thirstier and they can also pack on more weight. Sugar is an addiction in and of itself and it can pack on a lot of calories. Add that to the alcohol and you’re likely consuming your daily allotment of calories in one evening.

Salt can make you retain water which will also pack on the weight. Left unchecked you could pack on an additional several pounds in an evening of munching on pretzels or popcorn while drinking.

Curbing The Calories

So how do you curb the calories while still enjoying a night out? It’s easy if you follow these tips:

Eat a healthy meal before you go out to party. You won’t be as likely to overindulge.

Instead of drinking a Margarita for example try ordering the vodka in club soda or a light fruit juice. You might save up to 400 calories.

Opt for a veggie platter in lieu of sugary or salty snacks. Avoid the dips however, they can be heavy with salt and fats.

Instead of slugging down drink after drink, force yourself to drink a glass of water between each alcoholic beverage that you consume. This will help your body to metabolize the alcohol and other foods that you’ve recently eaten.

Most people drink to unwind after a hectic day at work. Be mindful of the amount of alcohol consumed. Opt for lighter versions of your favourite spirits. Mix your drinks with lighter versions of fruit juices in lieu of sugary mixers that will pack on the pounds. If you make this your habit you can avoid those excess pounds.

Mother To Child Transmission Of Cancer Possible, But Extremely Rare


During pregnancy a lot of different, harmful substances can pass to the child. Smoking, alcohol, and drugs are among the variety of different substances that can cause devastating effects to the unborn child. The baby be born with a wide array of disorders, from congenital disorders, to drug addiction, to fetal alcohol syndrome. The result can be very damaging and may even cause the death of the child. However, among the numerous different things that can effect an unborn child, cancer originating from the mother has been talked about, argued about, but only now are there definitive answers.

Researches have discovered the cancer can be transmitted to the child, from the mother during pregnancy. A 28-year-old Japanese woman gave birth to a baby girl. Everything appeared fine until a month after the birth. The mother developed vaginal bleeding and would be diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Although she began chemotherapy she would die only 19 days later after developing encephalitis. To make matters worse the baby would be taken to hospital at only 11 months of age, after she developed a large swell in her right cheek. The child had a tumor in her jaw and cancer that spread to her lungs. After DNA tests from the mother and child researchers found the cancer in the child and mother shared the same mutated gene. Also, the cancer found in the baby had spread before birth.

However, before mothers start becoming alarmed, the chances of cancer being given to a developing fetus if extremely low. The cancer in the case of the Japanese mother and child was caused because of a mutation that allowed the cancer to spread to the baby undetected. So just remember that the chance is very remote at best.

Regardless it still does seem a little bit scary that something as devastating as cancer is able to spread like that. I’m looking for the day when cancer isn’t an issue, when “the cure” will be available, and many lives are saved all around the world.

8 Things That Will Lower Your Sex Drive


Have you and your partner hit a road block in the bedroom? Well there are a number of things that could have caused things type of problem. Some of these problems can be caused by some psychological problem while others may be the result of our bodies aging. Here are some of the most frequent causes of decreased sex drive.

1.Stress– Stress is probably the most common reason for a low sex drive. Some people become stressed out at work, especially if there is a big, important proposal due next week. Some people (especially now) have been faced with stress due to financial problems. Try to look online or talk to your doctor about some stress management techniques.


2.Relationship problems– If there are problems in the relationship odds are there will be problems in the bedroom. Try talking some things out with your significant other. Communication is very important in a relationship. If there’s been a betrayal of trust, such as a cheating spouse well then some people may not get over that and find out it’s time to move on.

3.Alcohol– A few drinks to loosen you up might not really loosen you up. Alcohol actually numbs your sex drive and may cause you to forget about sex (if only for a little while). If it doesn’t the chances are your partner isn’t going to be too “in the mood” by your sexy slurring of words, and inability to stand up. You’ll have to worry about getting the bedroom before you even think about performing in the bedroom at that point.

4.Lack of Sleep– If you are waking up too early or going to bed too late then chances are you’re going to be extremely tired. Being fatigued severely lowers your sex drive. Try going to bed much earlier. If you suffer from insomnia talk to your doctor about some medications that will help you sleep.

5.Parenting– Although parenting does not LOWER sex drive it does make it extremely hard to find the time to become intimate. Try setting some dates where a relative or babysitter can watch your child while you and your partner have a “date night” where you can go out or just be alone at home.


6.Negative Body Image
– When you don’t think you look good, you feel even worse. Low self-esteem is a major cause for low sex drive. Some people convince themselves that they are overweight even if they aren’t and it plays negatively in their love life and can even lead to serious problems with their health. Try to remind your partner that you love the way they look. If that doesn’t work ask them to work out with you. Working out boosts self-confidence and boosts sex drive.

7.Obesity– For those that are actually overweight, problems in the bedroom are likely to follow. Although doctors are not positive as to why obesity leads to low sex drive many can guess. Most assume that low sex drive caused by obesity is due to low self-esteem, psychological problems, and relationship problems.


8.Too Little Intimacy
– Some times the intimacy tends to go away. This generally happens when two people are in a relationship for a lengthy period of time. Try to take some time to really enhance the mood. Watch a romantic movie together, cuddle, maybe take a bath together. As the excitement builds so will your sex drive.

Now these are not the only things that lower sex drive, but they are some of the most common reasons and most of them can be fixed. There are some biological factors that will lower sex drive that no one can really control such as menopause, and lower testosterone (testosterone levels decrease as we age). However, erectile dysfunction is now very manageable with treatment such as Viagra and Cialis. Hopefully some of this information helps you bring that spark back into the bedroom.

How To Prevent Excess Sweating


Sweating is a natural process that everyone does, but some people tend to sweat a lot more than others. This is called Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. It isn’t cancer and it probably won’t kill you, but it can be very embarrassing. There are ways to help limit or even prevent excessive sweating. Some of them are easy and natural, while others can be expensive and even dangerous.

Start by wearing some looser fitting clothes. I don’t mean loose like those idiot people that walk around with their pants down to their knees and t-shirts that are sized XXXXXXXXXXL. Just a side note to the morons that actually dress like that, it isn’t cool. You actually look stupid. Just because 50 cent or some other crappy rapper does it does not mean it’s cool… or even practical. If you are in some sort of gang what happens when you get into a fight or have to run from the cops (not saying you should get into a gang fight or run from the cops)? Anyway, back on topic, wearing loose fitting clothes. Tight shirts prevent air flow and can cause your body to get sweaty even faster.

Try drinking a lot of water. This one seems kind of obvious, but so many people forget this one. By drinking a lot of water you can keep yourself hydrated and also detox’s your body at the same time. However, avoid large amounts of caffeine and alcohol as these will cause you to sweat more (NOOOO not my coffee >:O )

Botox treatment has been known to help excessive sweating. However, this kind of treatment is extremely expensive and must be continually repeated for the benefits to stay. Some people have complained about the side effects of botox such as pain.

Another option that I find quite radical and dangerous is to have surgery. Surgery is the most dangerous of the options listed, but it may be the most effective. However, surgery may not fix everything. Obviously with the risks there are some other things that many people must know. Occasionally patients will experience excessive sweating in other parts of the body which is called compensatory sweating.

Oh I forgot to mention earlier, if you aren’t using an antiperspirant try that. Some people experience itching and rashes, but for most people antiperspirant works well. Make sure what you use says antiperspirant not just deodorant, there is a difference. Best of luck whatever you do.

Alcohols Effect on Unborn Babies


Most people know that drinking alcohol while pregnant is extremely harmful to the baby. However, do you know exactly what alcohol can do to your child? Well truth is, many people don’t and even though most women try to avoid alcohol when they become pregnant, some will consume alcohol before they are aware they have become pregnant.

Alcohol consumption during pregnancy is the leading cause of preventable birth defects and developmental difficulties in children. Some growth deficits include: mental retardation, heart, lung, and kidney defects, specific facial characteristics, hyperactivity and behavior problems, attention and memory problems, and learning disabilities.

The most horrific part about all the defects is, if they are caused by alcohol, they can be totally avoided. Many people need to really be aware of what they could possibly be doing. Now I’m not saying don’t ever drink alcohol, but if you are trying to become pregnant, might have accidentally become pregnant, or are in the prime child bearing years pay attention.

For anyone that doesn’t believe that alcohol causes horrible birth defects, go read a book. Seriously, you might learn something. Alcohol isn’t a horrible thing, but if used without any sort of thought horrible things may happen.
