Summer Time: The Top Five Items You Need For Summer Weather

Posted by Saito on May 8, 2009

Hey guys! I believe it’s time to start preparing for summer weather.

Let’s see…The Top Five Items You Need For Summer Weather are:

1. The most important item to have with you is a water bottle!

No need for too much input, just keep a water around whether it’s outside or inside, temperatures cause your body to sweat more often and if your body is low on water that causes dehydration.

2. Sunscreen is a must

sunscreen

You always need at least a little bit of sunscreen when walking outside and absorbing the sunny rays. If you don’t use sunscreen and tend to burn your skin often, that can cause you Skin Cancer later on in life…so try to avoid that if possible 🙂

I also would like to recommend that you buy an Organic brand of sunscreen so that you don’t get any bad chemicals in your system which may cause you more harm then good.

3. A pair of sunglasses (as a normal thing) is even more useful in the summer time

We have to protect our eyes from damage right? So protecting our eyes from UV rays which come from sunlight is in our best interest when playing outside or just being outside for the sake of it.

4. Extra deodorant in the summer time is also very helpful

K when you sweat more often in summer time you tend to stink a lot more too. Being extra thorough would serve you well :).

5. In case of burns having some Aloe Vera gel on hand would really help

It really helps when you use Aloe Vera over a burnt area of skin that needs to heal properly, I HIGHLY recommend Aloe Vera gel since I use it often to help heal my skin when it comes to Acne and if I have a burn that’s the first item I reach for :).

How To Combat The Swine Flu: Part 1

Posted by Saito on April 28, 2009

Well guys, guess what? Pigs have taken their revenge on the human race, they have released a new virus…the Swine Flu.

Q & A

I know I heard about that on the news, what should I do?

I read up on the BBC that there are simple ways to protect yourself from the new virus that seems to be attacking at every part of the globe. Here take a look at this list:

What you should do in the current situation at hand.

1. Keep your hands clean. Take a bottle of hand sanitizer with you as an extra precaution.

2. Invest in one of those surgical masks you see doctors wear. Check your local pharmacy. NOTE: If you have the Swine Flu, have someone pick up a mask for you so you don’t spread the virus.

3. Stay in your own zone. Try to avoid too much contact with people.

4. Be careful where you eat and what you eat. I would trust my own food more then food from a fast food restaurant. If you have fresh vegetables, be sure to give them an extra good rinse off before you eat anything.

5. Another thing, try to avoid contact with animals. Especially animals that live near or on farms.

This is a terrible tragedy, so many have already died because of this virus. I wish you all luck and hope you don’t catch the virus. And above all things right now…be careful.

Balanced Diet: How To Start A Balanced Diet…

Posted by Saito on March 3, 2009

Food Pyramid

I’m sure most of you have heard about the Food Pyramid, it shows you the best way to start a balanced diet and keep a balanced for the rest of your life.

Q & A

Okay then, what do I do first?

By starting a balanced diet you are taking a big step in life, you have to break some bad habits. Like eating unhealthy snacks when your hungry, or having multiple deserts (I’m sure you can think up some unusual eating habits on your own). Give your self time to make the transition, have your parents start buying you healthy natural foods. That is what you do to start…


Do you have a schedule I can use? What should I eat at what times?

Okay I’ll start:

Breakfast:

Start your breakfast with energizing food, full of protein and Vitamin C. I suggest eggs (protein) you can make them anyway you like, for bread I suggest Toast and last but not least for a drink try milk (calcium)/orange juice(Vitamin C) (you probably have more then one glass of orange juice/milk, try them both; have one glass of milk and one glass of orange juice)

Time between Breakfast and Lunch:

Sometimes most people have a snack before lunchtime, try munching on some cheerios (your daily grains) or have vegetable/fruit something healthy.

Lunchtime:

For lunch were all normally at school, so I suggest when you pack your lunch you should take food items that will last through the entire school day. I normally have a tuna sandwich, with a banana (protein again). For a drink I have water, cool and refreshing…try something balanced and nutritional like that (I’m sure you can think of something).

Time between lunch and dinner:

If you’ve just come home from school and want another snack, try crackers with peanut butter (or cheese, you know something edible like that =D). For a drink to go with it try having some more milk.

Dinner:

Normally as teens were not in charge of dinner (mom or dad takes care of that), why not ask them to make a balanced meal? I would suggest you ask them to make a pasta dish, or a rice dish; something with plenty of grains. You could also suggest a meat/poultry dish (chicken, beef or ham). On the side you would want a vegetable group, try broccoli or cauliflower. For desert try dark chocolate (just plain dark chocolate, its good a very good for you), or try a fruit dish.

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

That’s the schedule I recommend, of course its normally you can’t keep a perfect schedule this is just an example. Try making up your own balanced meal schedule, stick to the Food Pyramid rules and you’ll be fine :D.
