7 DON'Ts after a meal


* Don't smoke-Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

* Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1 hr before meal.

* Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

* Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted &blocked.

* Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
* Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.
* Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

Some Facts on a Few Veggies

Postby CCMAR » Tue Jun 16, 2009 9:53 am

Some Facts on a Few Veggies:

Beets:
- One cup of beets has 58 calories.
- Beets are chock-full of two different antioxidants that help protect healthy cells against damage all over the body.

- And beets are good for heart health and for keeping blood pressure regulated, because they provide a nice amount of potassium.

Broccoli:

- One cup of broccoli has 30 calories.
- Along with all other veggies in the cruciferous family, broccoli is important because it contains natural substances that may help the body fight certain cancers.
- Broccoli also helps heal cuts and wounds—it's a particularly good source of vitamin C.
- And, for a vegetable, broccoli can't be beat in helping build strong bones and teeth (it's one of the best nondairy sources of calcium—better absorbed by the body than spinach).

Butternut Squash:

- Spinach is your best bet for folic acid, which helps keep cells all over the body growing and functioning well.
- And it's an incredible nonanimal protein source of iron, which delivers oxygen all over the body, providing much-needed energy to muscles.
- Spinach also helps regulate blood sugar and keeps your heart healthy for it's high in potassium and magnesium.


Pumpkin:

- Pumpkin helps build healthy hearts because it's high in potassium.
- Its pretty orange color also signals that pumpkin is a rich source of beta-carotene, which helps keep skin bright and eyesight sharp, and encourages overall good health.

Just a quick note on Honey: If you are looking to use honey to help with your allergies you need to go to a health food store a buy honey that is produced in the area in which you live. The way allergies work is that your body has an unwarrented over reaction to to what it thinks is a danger to itself. So by ingesting the pollen and other possible allergens that bees collect to make honey your body will then know that those particles are not a danger to the body and not have the reaction.


Good post.
