Beating The Common Cold

We are feeling the cold again and doctors all over the world are advising the elderly, to come to their surgeries to receive an influenza vaccination (flu jab).

The immune system of many old people finds it hard to fight against viruses in general, not just the flu virus. Many people catch a cold and many call that flu, ( I admit to being guilty of this) males reportedly make this error more.

In a common cold you don’t suffer with a fever or headache, however it is usual for you to get a stuffy nose, and sore throat. In a lot of cases you will be sneezing and possibly suffer with mild chest discomfort.

When you get flu, you are in no doubt that you have it, you are pole axed with a high fever for days on end which is often accompanied with a nasty headache.

I know that when I had flu, I had pains in my neck and I felt absolutely ghastly. Not only that, I have spoken to others who have had the flu and they reported feeling weak and fatigued. For those with a low immune system, influenza can be dangerous.

A little bit of history for you here, in 1918 and 1919 a flu pandemic killed 70 million people, this actually claimed more lives than the four years of the First World War.

Whether you get the flu or not, is usually depends on how robust your immune system is. What makes the difference between you recovering from influenza or not is how (rapidly) your immune response develops.

I'd advise you not to wait until you get ill to find out just how fit you are. You need to start taking precautions now.

You can start getting fit by walking in the open air for 30 minutes 3x a week. Go to bed shortly after 10pm and some get som quality sleep. Eat properly, freshly made raw vegetables, fruits, smoothies, 2 immune system modulating capsules and 2,000mg of good quality vitamin C.

The Truth About Weight Loss

Most of us know that for a woman they have only got a daily allowance of 2,000 calories, compared to men who are allowed 2,500 calories. When asked what calories are, most of us wouldn't be able to give you an answer.

All most of us know is that too many calories can contribute to weight gain.

So what are calories? Calories are units of energy, which is used to raise your body temperature. For instance, one calorie equals the same amount of energy that is needed to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1 degree Celsius.

However you may be surprised to learn that calories are our way of measuring the energy content of the foods we eat.

Another metrical tool you need to know when you are losing weight, which you won’t traditionally find on a food label, is joules. These measure food energy too, but work on a higher setting. In this case, 1 calorie equals 4,184 joules (with such high figures it is easy to see why companies opt for calories).

Even when you measure it in kilojoules, one kilojoule is still 1,000 joules.

Still with me? Well here is the next secret, when it comes to losing weight, the number of calories you can have depends on your existing weight.

Imagine you've got 2 people who want to lose weight at a rate of 2lbs a week, but one of them is 2 stone heavier than the other, (more info in the link below).

In this scenario the person who is heavier is able to consume more calories whilst losing weight at the same rate as their friend.

This is because they are carrying extra weight, they need more energy to move it and keep their weight loss steady. If you reduce your calories too much you won't have enough energy to keep your body working properly.

Saying this, once the lbs begin to drop off the heavier person of this scenario would have to adapt and lower their calorie allowance to cope with their new weight.

As you can see, calories play a vital part on your road to weight loss. For instance, to lose just 1lb, you need to burn 3,500 calories – more than your daily allowance.

Now although this looks as though you need to starve yourself in order to lose weight, you don't. We recommend that by cutting your calorie consumption by 250-500 calories a day, you can effectively lose weight at a rate that will enable you to then keep it off.

PLEASE NOTE: you shouldn't cut your calories to below 1,200 a day as this can lead to increased health risks.

The next question is: how can you tell how many calories there are in food? A topic we shall discuss in my next post.

How to know if you are in a loving relationship

Most of us want to be loved and to love. Sometimes we are drawn to a person by looks and physical attraction, however as a relationship deepens there has to be more substance.

I know so many people who are in a relationship with somebody who they really can't stand. They refuse to leave the person because they aren't strong enough to go it alone, that is what unfortunately what it all comes down to.

Below are some points to consider:

1) In a loving relationship you feel supported.

2) There is fun in a loving relationship.

3) There is good communication in a loving relationship.

4) Making the other person in the relationship is your chief aim.

5) Points of views and boundaries are respected in a loving relationship.

6) There has to be compromise in a truly loving partnership.
