Weight Lifting: Protein Powder

Posted by Saito on March 27, 2009

I have been taking this protein powder for about four months now and I am seeing some surprising results, it really works!!

Q & A

Really? It works? How does it work?

The protein powder I have been taking for the past four months is called “Night Trainer”. It’s a special chocolate flavored drink your only supposed to take before bed time. Its supposed to help you regain energy after a work out, you don’t tire as easy when you lift weights.

Alright I’ll take your word on that, how do I take it?

It comes with a special scooper already, you take a single heaping amount of Night Trainer into your cup. Add some milk stir it in and drink it. Its a really sticky mixture and can freeze like cement on your spoon, so just be aware =D.

– – – – – – – –

It has great flavor, I have not been disappointed with it the benefits have been great!! You may start to see better results after about two weeks (and a bit more definition with your muscles)

You can get it here: Night Trainer

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

The Benefits of Fruits and Vegetables: Part 1

Posted by Saito on March 24, 2009

I’m dedicating this post to the benefits of fruits and vegetables, since there are so many different types of fruits and vegetables I will only be discussing about the most common fruits and vegetables.

Fruits and Veggies

Q & A

What do you mean by benefits exactly?

By benefits I mean as what they can actually do, how do they effect your body?

Lets start with a few common veggies:

Celery

Celery targets your bones, notice they appear to look like your bones inside and out already. It sends nutrients to your bones to keep them healthy and strong. When your body is running low on sodium it takes sodium from your bones, making them weak. So celery and other vegetables like bok choy and rhubarb revive your bones keeping them strong.

Carrot

If you look on the inside of a carrot (after you take a bite) you will notice the odd rings on the inside, almost transforming into the shape of an eye. As a matter of fact it greatly effects the human eye, it greatly enhances blood flow and funtions of the human eye.

Tomato

The tomato has four chambers on the inside, the tomato is red. That is exactly what our hearts look like inside and out! All research says that the tomato is pure heart and blood food.

– – – – – – –

Okay, we have seen the benefits of some vegetables, now lets take a look at the fruit section:

Grapes

Grapes hang in a cluster in the shape of the human heart, every grape appears to look like a blood cell. Research shows that grapes are food for the heart and our blood. (grapes are also a great source of Resveratrol)

Bananas

Bananas are a great source of potassium, it helps to regulate your blood pressure. The potassium in the bananas can also help your muscles contract properly while doing exercises and it reduces cramping. bananas can also help lower sugar cravings.

Oranges

Oranges are extremely beneficial, they help you fight asthma, it helps with proper brain development, it also brings Betacarotene into your body which protects your cells from damage and viruses.

– – – – – – – –

These are just a few fruits and vegetables, imagine the benefits of ALL fruits and vegetables! I think everyone should try to maintain a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, the benefits are worth it :D.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update :D.

Weight Losing Tips: Step 11

Posted by Saito on March 23, 2009

This post will be focused on the determination and focus you will need to make out a weight losing schedule:

^ See how determined she is to climb up the face of that cliff, well that’s the same determination you need to get up every morning and work out.

I admit it, its not fun at first. You feel worn out and dragged out when you first start a work out schedule to burn off those pounds.

But once you get at it, and find your niche for these work out routines you will began to get used to it. So will your body and that will help you get those pounds off.

You can’t quit on what you start, you have to force yourself to workout. But you will enjoy the results if you keep at it, you can even see results within two week…but it depends on your schedule.

Q & A

Wow this sounds rough. What should I do to work off these pounds?

Everybody is in their own situation in life, it’s hard to recommend what exactly to do or what to use when everyone has their own unique lifestyle and home life. But I have to recommend the basic’s, and here they are:

Treadmill

The treadmill is one of the most recommended workout machines out their, it’s a standard issue workout machine.

Stair Steps

You can either use the machine, or you can actually go up and down your stair for ten minutes (when you start out) I am actually going up and down my stairs for twenty-five minutes and I am seeing incredible results so I highly recommend doing this :D.

Bicycling (machine)

You can either use the machine or you can really go bicycling. Its fun my dad loves to bicycle ride and I do as well, I highly recommend this work out routine =D.

Basic Aerobics

This is one of the best ways to lose weight, just basic workout routines. You can learn all about the right routines like jumping jacks, squats etc. here: Turnstep.com

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

I have personally done all of these workout routines, I recommend them all but you don’t need to do them all, just choose the one you think will work best =D.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

How To Deal With Spring Time Allergies

Posted by Saito on March 19, 2009

Normally in spring time allergies are common for most people (I happen to be one of them). Sneezing, irritated eyes, itchy throat etc. these are all apart of spring times allergy reactions and I have only mentioned a few…and I’m dedicating this post to helping you fight spring time allergies.

Q & A

Okay, what should I do first?

When you have a serious allergy problem you should drink plenty of water as a start (to flush out any pollen or substance in your body that is causing you a problem). Next I would suggest that you stay indoors more then spending too much time outside (you will only keep agitating your allergies further by exposing them).


Okay I can deal with that, would you suggest that I take anything? Some form of medicine?

Yes definitely, I would suggest you should take Benadryl:

Benadryl is a great product that really does work. I would suggest you take the liquid children’s Benadryl (my family and I always take liquid childrens benadryl), its easy to take and you only need about a teaspoon worth of it. The only problem with it is that benadryl makes you drowsy, but you’d have to cope with it since it is helping you deal with your allergies.

– – – – – – – – – –

That’s really all I can say for dealing with spring time allergies. Allergies suck and I know its a pain to deal with them, but I like to look at the bright side; I keep telling myself hang in there summer’s coming!! XD

Well guys post a comment and let me know if you have any suggestions on how to deal with allergies 😀
Stay tuned for the next update =D.

Acne: How To Fight Acne…

Posted by Saito on March 16, 2009

I’ve been dealing with acne as long as I can remember, through the years I have found useful items that help me combat acne and they actually work.

Q & A

Okay what do you suggest? What have you found exactly?
1. Well for starters I found using Aloe Vera Gel seems to really help with the process of healing my skin:

Aloe Vera is typically used to heal burns and sooth your skin, I found it can also quickly heal my skin after taking out some of my acne. This is my first technique.

2. My second technique has to deal with baking soda:

Just normal baking soda, take wet baking soda and spread it over the area in need and it should clear it up =D.

3. The one I find the best above all is the sun:

Good old sun exposure is the best way to clear up acne hands down. Just go outside whenever you can for at least 30 minutes, you’ll get some color while your at too =D.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

My skin has pores that are large in comparison to other people, so Acne is a very common thing for me. But I know someday after puberty it won’t be as much of a problem. So I wait and use these techniques, post a comment and let me know your own techniques on how to get rid of Acne =D.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update 😀

Stay Away From STRESS: Part 3

Posted by Saito on March 10, 2009

Teen Girl Stressed

The big “how can I stay away from stress” question is becoming far more popular everyday, especially since the economy is in a down slide. The pressure is really set in on us teens since “we are the future” (pressure, pressure, pressure…). How can we simply avoid stress? It’s not like we can’t turn it off, it’s in our faces everyday. We need something to help us get out of it…and I have a few idea’s.

Q & A

Alright if you know what to do, then tell me what should I do?

If you have seen my previous post’s (part 1 and part 2) you’ll see I have already had some good advice that works…but is it enough? I know there is even more that you can do right now!

1. First off try to let your problems slide off your shoulders (sound familiar?), if you ponder over something too much you’ll burn out and your stress levels will increase.

2. Second, find help. Some things you don’t need to keep to yourself, if you know someone who can help then you should ask…keeping it to yourself will only increase your anxiety and worries…

3. Next you have to find a place to chill. Even if it’s just for a few minutes try and find time for yourself.

4. Lastly do not let anyone push you over the edge, ignore incoming insults or problems trying to throw you off guard.

– – – – – – – – – – – –

Since I can’t be with you and try to help you maybe my advice can. Life can be extremely annoying and privacy can often be invaded…the best thing you can do is to try and set things straight; don’t let it get to you. Stress can also cause health problems if your under it’s influence for too long, you have to find your chill time.

Stay tuned for the next update :D.

Resveratrol: Wait What’s Resveratrol?

Posted by Saito on February 23, 2009

Grapes full of Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a special nutrient that is normally found in red grapes. Grapes use Resveratrol to heal a bruise or a burn from the sun anything that damages the grape, it uses it so it may return back to normal form and shape.

Q & A

Ok great well it helps the grapes…but what has this to do with me and my health?

Well not only is Resveratrol found in grapes but it’s also found in animals. When an animal is starving, near death, Resveratrol is released throughout the animals body; Resveratrol keeps the animal from catching deadly diseases till it finds the proper food source. It keeps the animal alive! This also pertains to us, if we take Resveratrol as a supplement it will protect us from diseases-protecting us from every disease as a matter of fact!

Ok that’s cool, but is that all it can do for me?

No, that was just the beginning; there is so much more it can do. Resveratrol tricks your body into making every possible move to preserve your body as you get older, it boosts your defenses (protecting you from disease) and keeps you in top physical condition. In order for Resveratrol to work at it’s best you need a good diet; eating balanced meals and such. As I said before, it preserves your body as you get older and it helps you live healthier, longer. It also helps your brain-it keeps your mind clear and focused.

Wow, where can I get this and how do I take Resveratrol?

I suggest you take it in veggie capsule form:

Click the following link and you can get Resveratrol in veggie capsule form. It’s recommended that you take two a day, one in the morning and one at night: Eresveratrol.com

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I’ve been taking Resveratrol for several months now and I’m enjoying it’s benefits, you know my mind is clear and focused :D. I enjoy it, my mind does not feel cluttered as it use to…how cool is that :D!! Now my mom is taking Resveratrol, and she is also enjoying its bountiful benefits!! She says it has helped her with her memory and her mind is clearer then it has been in a long while 😀

Well that’s all for now, stay tuned for the next update 😀

Posted by Saito on February 6, 2009

D Chocolate

Q & A

Wait what? It can benefit your health? I’ve heard so many rumors, what exactly can you benefit from it?

1. Dark Chocolate contains Phenyl Ethylamine, a mild mood elevator.

2. Having a cup of Hot Chocolate can reduce your appetite (sweet!)

Stay Away From STRESS: Part 2

Posted by Saito on February 4, 2009

Alright then, time for part 2! This time lets talk about a machine called the Chi Machine!

The Chi Machine

K the Chi Machine looks incredibly weird I know, but it is one of the best ways of getting stress off of your shoulders! I use it when I feel overburdened and stressed, I feel so relaxed afterwords I sometimes don’t know what was stressing me out…

Q & A

What does the Chi Machine actually do?

The Chi Machine is an oxygenator, it cleanses your body of toxins that don’t belong in your body.

Ok so we know what it does, how do you use it?

The Chi Machine is easy to use, its light and portable (so beneficial that way too =D). You plug it into an outlet in your wall. Turn the Chi Machine opposite of the handle bar, lay down on the floor. Place your ankles in the two slots on top of the Chi Machine, lay perfectly straight with the Chi Machine. Then take the controller in your hand and turn the knob up to five minutes (just for starting out, don’t work your way up the amount of time too quickly, take it easy I really only Chi now for eleven minutes). As soon as you turn it on you will feel your ankles wiggle from side to side. You’re body will normally stiffen up when this occurs, just relax and let you’re body wiggle, its very important and the whole part of the Chi Machine effects. After the Chi Machine stops, stay still and lift you’re ankles off of the two slots. Stay that way for around two minutes (you don’t need a timer or anything you can judge what you think is two minutes). Then afterwords lift both you’re legs up to your chest, then with you’re legs lean to the left and then lean to the right. Then when you have accomplished all of this your done!! You should feel a buzzing going through your body, that is called the Chi Buzz it’s completely normal :D. (NOTE: Only use the Chi Machine once a day, doing it twice or thrice may over do it, its always recommended to it only once a day)

So you say it can relieve me of my stress, what else does it do besides that?

Well actually the list for the Chi Machine benefits is huge, so I’ll just name the important basic benefits for you guys:

1. It can help you lose weight (correcting your weight actually, if you are either under or over it does not matter)

2. Ten minutes on the Chi Machine is like taking a walk outside for an hour (:O)

3. If you have a problem with low energy, the Chi Machine will help you gain you’re energy back! So you won’t feel tired or lethargic anymore!

Those are only three small things that the Chi Machine is capable of! If you want to learn more click the following link: Chi Machine Benefits

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Well my entire family uses the Chi Machine once every day, its a really cool machine and I hope you guys will enjoy using it too!

Green Tea Extract: Part 2 Aftermath

Posted by Saito on January 23, 2009

Hey guys! A month ago I made a post about an item called Green Tea Extract, it’s supposed to help clean out your body (and that includes flushing out extra fat!). Here are my results after taking Green Tea Extract for a month and a half:

Green Tea Extract

1. My energy levels boosted up dramatically.

2. I can sleep a full eight hours at nighttime (which means my human growth hormones kick in without any interruption)

3. I’ve lost about a half an inch around my waist line (my gut is practically gone now!)

4. Not only do I notice differences in my health that are good, but I feel better. I feel very clean and energized.

Now THAT is pretty good for only a month and a half’s worth of Green Tea Extract.

Now that you have read my results, I’d like to tell what exactly it is and how you use it.
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Q & A

What exactly is Green Tea Extract?

It’s a concentrated form of the Herb called Green Tea, it comes in a bottle and you place it in your water.

Does it taste good?

You know it really does taste good :D, its even sweet in its own way…

How much should I put in my water?

The bottle comes with a dropper, you simply extract two full droppers of Green Tea Extract and place it in a glass full of water.

When will I began to see results?

Give it about two weeks, you should began to feel and see good results 😀

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
I enjoy taking Green Tea Extract and hope you will too! My mom and sister were watching me take it everyday for a month and a half, they saw my results and wanted to try it with me; I hope they get the same great results as I did 😀
