Stay Fit Feel Young with Honey

“5 cone of Black Current” I told the ice-cream parlor. Suddenly there was firm voice “no please make that four”. It was Ashley’s voice. He is also one of our society friends. Summers have already taken the life from all of us. So every day a night walk accompanied with an ice cream or goal had become a necessity.

But not forgetting to mention that Ashley though is overweight, still he will never compromise on food and especially on sweets. He loves them and so none of us have ever stopped him. All in one tone surprisingly asked “Why no ice cream for you”. To this Ashley answered that he is on crash diet.

We all were in a shock with his answer. Ashley doing a diet is like a nightmare and that to if he is on crash diet, was not acceptable at all.

“How can you do a crash diet, it is actually nutritionally unbalanced can lead to long-term poor health” said Sharon.

Then the discussion on Crash Diet started. Crash diet is very dangerous. It is definitely a method to lose weight really fast in a short period of time, but the side effects are enormous. You can reduce approx. 700 calories in a day. People who crash diet by missing out food or greatly cutting down on their daily calories tend to put weight back on quicker than those who follow a healthy, long-term diet plan.

Ashley was little scared hearing us. I was also tensed for him. But suddenly there was a new voice “Why don’t you go for Honey Diet”. We just checked that she was a young lady a dietitian.

She introduced herself and said that Dabur Honey has come up with something very interesting. You have a teaspoon of honey with warm water in the morning for weight management. Honey is a substitute for Sugar where the calorie content id less. On other hand contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which are good for health. 

Honey is known to be a good source of energy as its natural sugar and carbohydrates are easily digested by the body. Honey when used in your diet is known to aid in digestion. Also Honey is known to help in cough and throat irritation.

For girls especially honey is known to be useful for the skin because of its moisturizing and nourishing properties.

We were very impressed with her thoughts. So we asked her more about diet and ideas for losing weight.

With that she explained that exercise to body is like knowledge to mind. It is necessary for anyone – young or old, working or non-working, fat or fit. One should remove time for exercise.

She also explained us about healthy snacks and desserts. She gave us recipes for Honey Fruit salad, and Honey Berry Milk shake.

The information was helpful for not only Ashley but also to others also. Ashley finally decided to stop his crash diet and start a healthy honey diet along with exercise.

So stay fit with Honey diet J

Manage your time for Drinking Water

Water – a complete versatile liquid which makes you fit, beautifies your skin, cures many disease and the list can go on.
But ever wondered how much water do we have in entire day? I am sure most of our answers would be below the actual requirement. The reason behind is that we all are highly occupied with our day to day work. So we hardly keep a track for how much water we actually drink in a day.

Thanks to reward me site which has given a unique style for keeping track of the water we have.

What you need:
·         2 x 50cl plastic bottles
·         Masking tape (of different colours)
·         Scissors
·         Marker

Use masking tape to create 3 graduations on each bottle. This way you will obtain 5 equal volumes of water.

Drink one volume of water per hour.
Use the marker to write the time at which we should drink water.

With above steps I also added the liter with each time slot. This helps us to check how much liter of water we manage to have in that particular day. You can keep this bottle in your cubicle.

Thus reward me has given a unique idea which shall help us to consume maximum water in a day and be healthy.

Beauty of Cold Water Shower

Cold water bath …..For many it will be a nightmare. In fact I get cold just thinking about it, but recently I read an article from reward me and was surprised to read the title “Benefits of Cold water bath”.
The title was captivating that I was forced to read the full article. And found that it’s not the cold water that is benefiting you, on the contrary, it's the warmth that your body is producing while reacting to the cold water that is balancing your internal temperature.
This “thermic reaction” expels all the impurities we have in our skin, giving us great natural benefits.
But please remember that if you take a cold shower you should do it the right way so you don’t get sick.
You need to start very slowly and gradually. When you get in the shower you should first wet your toes and then the rest of your body until you get to your neck. It’s not necessary to wet your head. Do this for 2 minutes. If you rush into the water and stay for a longer period of time than suggested you could get sick or get a bad headache. Once you’ve finished your shower, make sure to cover yourself up quickly or move your feet and hands so you can generate heat in your body once again.

Check out some benefits of taking cold showers.
1.    Increase metabolism

When our body is exposed to cold water it produces energy in order to continuously re-regulate our internal temperature, burning many calories.
2.    Encourage Healthy hair

The rule goes like this: Hot water opens your hair cuticles while cold water closes them. So, if you wash your hair with hot water, make sure to lower the temperature before you finish showering so that your cuticles have a chance to close. Otherwise this could cause for your hair to fall out or get frizzy.

3.    Prevent Skin Impurities

When you take a cold shower your pores close. This prevents grease and other skin impurities from getting in. Remember also that if you take a very hot shower your skin will dry, making it vulnerable to dermatological problems like eczema.

4.    Soft feet

When you wash the bottom of your feet with cold water while massaging them, they’ll feel softer when you come out. This happens because you are stimulating better blood circulation with cold water.

Thus we see that cold water shower is real advantageous.

Lovely feet at no Spa cost

“Oh you need to do spa every time to beautify your legs”…God its dam expensive in terms of money as well as time.

In today’s busy schedule, we hardly get time for ourselves and then thinking for pedicure every time is just too much. But thanks to reward me site I found that pedicure can be also done in your free space on weekends. Which is not costly at all.
The best part of the pedicure in the article was not having to get out of your pajamas!

Check out the few important steps that shall give you the Spa Pedicure:
1.     Soak your feet

Prepare your feet by giving them a hot bath. Add a perfumed bath salt with one of your favorite scents. You can also add any of your shampoo into the bath tub for good foam. We can also add a few smooth pebbles to the water. These will provide a gentle massage as you place your feet on them. You can then just relax and lean back.

2.    Exfoliate

Once you are done with the foot bath, dry your feet and using a foot scrub remove all the dry and dead skin cells. Be firm but do not scrape too hard.
If you only have a few minutes, exfoliate quickly with a pumice stone or an exfoliating cleanser. Pay close attention to the heel and the base of the big toe.

3.    Right size of nails
maintain the length of your nails with a nail clipper and file them if you’re a fan of rounded tips. Remember: always file in the same direction, as back-and-forth movements can damage nails. Once you have finished filing, remove small spots and other traces present on nails using a nail buffer.

4.    Moisturize
Moisturizing helps soften, hydrate the skin and protects it from cracking. Rub a generous portion on your feet and massage well. Apply a good moisturizer to the base of your foot, especially on the driest parts.

5.    Finishing Touch
The finishing touch is obviously a lovely shiny coat of polish. Choose a shade you like. And plan enough drying time. Since you’re at home, it’s less complicated than getting it done at a spa.

Thus through this article of Reward me, I have lovely feet without any extra pain and extra money J
