Quinoa is often called a “superfood,” but you can think of it as a hard-working everyday staple for your healthy recipes.

Quinoa (say it “keen-wah”) is considered a whole grain, although it’s technically a seed. Like other SmartCarbs, it’s high in fiber and low in calories. According to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a half-cup serving also fuels you up with four grams of protein—in fact, it’s one of the few plant foods that’s a “complete” protein, including all nine essential amino acids.1

Quinoa has a chewy texture and a lightly nutty flavor that blends well with many other ingredients. It comes in different colors, including red, white, yellow and even black.

Quinoa is the perfect swap for rice in your recipes. However, it’s so versatile that we keep discovering new ways to enjoy it! We’ve gathered this list of two dozen fresh recipes for putting quinoa to work for you, from breakfast to dinner and everything in between.

This frog ate too much, and need to get back on track.

 

 

Ate too Much?

 

 

Remember last year when you wake up the morning after the annual family holiday party feeling bloated; stuffed, and sluggish? because you ate too much.

Well, not this year! I’m telling you right now that you can splurge without gaining weight you just need to follow this five-step detox plan to a T to flush out the sugary evidence in 24 hours flat.

According to Nutrition Expert and Best-Selling Author  Joy Bauer’s ate too much.

Read it, memorize it, and follow it anytime you’ve had one too many helpings.

 

 

STEP 1:

GET IN THE RIGHT MINDSET.

The last thing you probably want to do is exercising but starting your day with a 45-minute brisk walk is key.

You’ll sweat off uncomfortable bloat. And, thanks to those mood-boosting chemicals that your body makes when you exercise, you’ll be in the right frame of mind to make healthy food choices the rest of the day.

Taking charge and exercising first thing will also help stop one day of overdoing it from turning into a week of overeating-which is one of the main ways a splurge leads to weight gain.

 

 

STEP 2:

EAT PROTEIN AND POTASSIUM AT BREAKFAST.

Having a solid morning meal helps prevent overeating the rest of the day, but not all breakfasts are created equal.

Research has consistently shown that including protein is key. That’s because protein (think eggs, low-fat cheese, yogurt) has the most staying power, so you stay fuller longer and wind up eating less overall.

One study found that dieters who ate eggs for breakfast lost more weight and had more energy than those who had a starchy bagel with the same calorie count.

Potassium (in most fruits and vegetables) is equally important in getting rid of the day-after puff since this mineral offsets the bloating effects of sodium.

 

 

healthy_breakfast_meals

 

 

A few of my favorite protein -potassium powerhouses:

  • Waffle with Ricotta Cheese and
    Banana Top a whole-grain waffle with
    112 cup part-skim ricotta cheese and 1 sliced banana.
  • Cottage Cheese with Cantaloupe
    Stuff 1/2 cantaloupe with 1/2 cup low-fat
    cottage cheese.
  • Smoothie Combine 1/2 cup nonfat
    yogurt, 1/2 cup milk (skim, soy or
    almond), 3;4 cup fruit (any kind), and 3
    to 5 ice cubes.

 

 

STEP 3:

GO GREEN.

One recent study by Swedish researchers found that unsweetened, caffeinated green tea is very effective at helping satisfy your appetite.

Like water, it fills you up with liquid volume, which will take the edge off your hunger.

So, sip a warm mug or chilled glass of plain green tea with breakfast, lunch, and dinner (for a total of three a day).

Green tea can also slightly rev up your metabolism, so you eat less and burn more!

 

 

STEP 4:

KICK UP THE HEAT.

Time to whip out the hot sauce. That’s because new research out of Purdue University suggests that adding spicy seasonings and condiments like cayenne pepper; fresh and jarred hot peppers and hot sauce to meals helps suppress your appetite and slightly boosts your metabolism.

When dieters who weren’t used to eating spicy foods enjoyed soup seasoned with l/2 tsp of cayenne pepper, they ate 60 fewer calories at their next meal and burned an extra 10 calories (every little bit count!).

So, try sprinkling chopped hot peppers into salads or mixing hot sauce into low-fat mayo or hummus to make a spicy spread.

You can also add minced jalapenos or chipotle peppers to omelets, low-fat chicken or tuna salad, stir-fries, and marinades.

 

 

STEPS 5:

LOAD UP ON VEGGIES.

Non-starchy ones like broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, spinach, and bell peppers are rich in fiber and water, which means they fill you up with fewer calories.

Try to have 1 cup of veggies at breakfast and/or snack time and 2 cups at lunch and dinner. (Avoid starchy veggies, including peas, potatoes, corn, and winter squash, which can add to the bloat.)

 

 

pregnancy-tip-7

 

 

Dos and Don’ts. when you ate too much.

  • DON’T weigh yourself until the next week. Water retention from salty, fatty, heavy foods can cause

a 3- to 5-lb increase for up to 2 days afterward, so hold off on the weigh-in until 5 days post-splurge.

  • DON’T use artificial sweeteners. They can trigger a sweet craving. Skip them for a day or two until you’re back to your healthy eating routine.
  • DO give yourself a pep talk. Try something short that you can repeat to yourself when that leftover pumpkin pie is staring you down.

For example, One day of splurging is not the end of the world. I can and will get back on track. Nutrition Expert and Best-Selling Author  Joy Bauer’s ate too much.

 

 

 

 

Researchers now say there is a link between lung cancer proton therapy

 

 

Lung cancer new study suggests proton therapy.

 

When treating lung cancer with radiation therapy. There is a significant concern that the treatment dose will expose the heart to excess radiation. One way to avoid this unnecessary radiation is by using proton therapy, a more precise form of radiation therapy as compared to traditional radiation therapy (x-rays/photons).

Researchers now say there is a link between lung cancer proton therapy. And a reduced risk of certain heart diseases, including mini-strokes and heart attacks.

 

 

ABOUT THE STUDY.

 

The findings of a new study from Penn Medicine. Have presented at the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) annual meeting in October by Timothy Kegelman, MD, Ph.D., chief resident in the Department of Radiation Oncology in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, Kegelman and his team of researchers followed more than 200 patients. Who underwent either proton therapy or traditional radiation therapy for locally advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.

 

The retrospective trial specifically looked at the percentage of patients who experienced cardiac side effects. Including transient ischemic attacks (mini-strokes), myocardial infarctions (heart attacks), atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, heart failure, and stroke.

 

 

PROMISING RESULTS FOR LUNG CANCER PROTON THERAPY.

 

With a median follow-up period of just under two a half years, the study found a significant difference in the incidence of mini-strokes. Just 1.1 percent of patients treated with proton therapy experienced a mini-stroke, compared to 8.2 percent of patients treated with traditional radiation therapy.

“This shows us another potential benefit of proton therapy for lung cancer patients,” Kegelman said. “We know proton has the ability to minimize radiation doses to surrounding organs like the heart. And these latest findings suggest that sparing correlates with fewer cardiac problems compared to conventional therapy.”

The authors of the study also pointed out a reduction in the incidence of heart attacks for proton therapy patients; although they were careful to note it’s not a statistically significant difference. Furthermore, Nine percent of traditional radiation therapy patients experienced heart attacks during the follow-up period, compared to just 2.3 percent for the proton therapy group.

Researchers say there was no difference in the number of cases of atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, heart failure, or stroke.

 

 

FUTURE RESEARCH WILL SHED MORE LIGHT.

 

The Penn Medicine study is the first of its kind to suggest proton therapy is more beneficial than intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), a widely-used form of traditional x-ray radiation therapy when it comes to reducing the effects of radiation to the heart.

It provides a promising starting point on which researchers can build. Kegelman and his team continue to compare the effects of protons and photons on cardiac events by looking more closely at the severity of heart-related side effects, as well as the radiation dose to specific parts of the heart.

“ While these findings are promising and add to growing evidence. Therefore, more research will help us better determine and understand how treating with protons may reduce cardiac event risk,” noted Kegelman.

Much of that research is expected to come within the next two years when an ongoing prospective trial is completed. A large, international phase III clinical trial comparing proton therapy to photon therapy for lung cancer patients has been underway since 2014.

 

 

Finally.

 

The authors of the Penn Medicine study expect this trial. Which is scheduled to end in 2022, to show that protons reduce heart-related disease and death. Therefore, will translate into a higher cure rate.

Ultimately, the findings of this new study, along with future research including the phase III trial. Will allow radiation oncologists to better understand how to maximize radiation doses to lung cancer cells. While minimizing the risk of exposing the heart to unnecessary radiation.

Intimate Health and Obesity, How Obesity Can Sabotage a Healthy Manhood. 

 

 

 

 

Intimate Health and Obesity.

By Man Health

 

When talking about obesity, experts and armchair experts alike focus on the major diseases brought on by obesity and the surface issues of beauty and belonging.

There’s a lot of discussion and information out there about diabetes, heart disease, and other issues related to obesity.

But what about intimate health? Shouldn’t that conversation be happening, too? We think so. So, let’s talk about obesity, intimate health, and what people need to know.

 

 

Intimate Health and Obesity: What Are the Risk Factors?

 

Many men suffering from obesity may also find themselves dealing with a diagnosed medical male organ dysfunction or a psychological issue with having intimate relations.

That’s not to say that all obese men have these problems; however, obesity certainly raises their risk.

 

 

Relations Stoppers: Medical.

 

Men who have diseases such as high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes often experience issues with intimate health.

In fact, men who have diabetes are 50 percent more likely to have member dysfunction (MD) than other men.

Obesity contributes to excess narrowing and hardening of the blood flow. Which makes it more difficult to swirl around a larger body and down to the member in the vigor that causes the hardness.

These diseases all contribute in some way to the prevention of either getting hard or maintaining the firmness.

They damage the inner linings of the blood vessels of the member, which then causes a restriction in blood flow due to lack of dilation.

Obesity can also happen as the result of, and reduce, the amount of androgen in the body (it’s the original double-edged sword here).

Androgen starts taking a dip in men between ages 40 and 50. Androgen starts the whole hardness problem off and without it, or with less of it, drive diminishes.

Finally, the inevitable cause: age. With age, stamina decreases. The entire body ages, so it’s natural that a man who was used to getting hard four times in one day in his 20s may only have the urge or ability three times a week in his 60s.

 

 

Relations Stoppers: Psychological.

 

Often overlooked, psychological reasons can cause huge waves in a man’s intimate health. Of course, issues such as depression and anxiety can physically manifest as MD. However, there are much more nefarious effects than MD.

An obese man may be able to produce and maintain hardness without trouble, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he isn’t having problems.

Poor self-image is another reason an obese man may shy away from intimacy with a partner. Potential rejection, fear of another person’s unkind judgment; or a demoralizing sense of self can also lead an obese man to ignore his intimate health.

 

 

An Easy Reversal.

 

Thankfully, research has shown that 95 percent of male organ dysfunction can be easily treated. First and foremost, a man must address the root cause of his problem, be that medical or mental.

After that, he needs to take doctor recommendations and make lifestyle changes.

Things such as adopting a healthy diet, bringing more movement into each day; getting adequate sleep, and not smoking are all critical parts of reversing intimate dysfunction.

Doctors also say that a weight reduction of as little as ten percent within a two-month period will vastly improve the issue.

Mental health interventions such as therapy and medication may also be part of a treatment plan.

While making these changes, give the member a little extra care. Use an expressly formulated male organ health crème. (Health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to strengthen and protect the member.

Look for creams that list L-carnitine as an ingredient, as it is a science-backed guardian against peripheral nerve damage.

Find a crème with vitamins A and C to ward off bacteria that can result from sweating, and to boost collagen production while fighting against agents of early aging.

How Obesity Can Sabotage a Healthy Manhood.

By Man Health

 

Obesity is quickly becoming a serious public health crisis. But while many people know that obesity can lead to certain problems. Such as diabetes and heart disease, many aren’t aware of some of the other, more hidden dangers of being overweight.

While many men who are carrying extra pounds still have a quite satisfying sensual life and run into no problems with member care. There are also those who have encountered more than a few male organ problems.

Here’s what a man needs to know about maintaining healthy manhood in the face of obesity.

 

 

Ways obesity can affect member health.

 

Though it’s obvious by now that obesity affects several body functions, including the heart, just how does it affect a man’s time in the sack? Here’s how.

 

1) He doesn’t have as much stamina.

A man who is carrying extra weight can often become fatigued faster than a guy of the proper weight; that is never more obvious than in the bedroom.

A guy might notice that as he puts on the pounds. He has more trouble breathing during heavy sensual activity; and he might need to stop an enjoyable session before he wants to, just because his body can’t quite keep up the pace.

 

2) He might develop skin problems.

When someone is obese, he might have “rolls” of skin that rub together.

Those areas can lead to redness, rashes, and even infection if he’s not extremely careful about hygiene.

In addition, skin problems are common among those who have underlying problems; such as uncontrolled diabetes, as they make certain infections more common.

 

3) He might suffer from nerve damage.

The nerves of the member – and the rest of the body, for that matter – are very delicate and ready to respond to the slightest touch or sensation.

But for those with obesity, the excess weight can put too much pressure on the nerves, leading to a deadening of sensation or even some measure of pain.

Those who have problems with blood flow as a result of the pressure might also suffer from loss of sensation.

 

4) He might not be able to get it up.

Everyone knows heart problems are the norm with obesity. But many men don’t think about the fact that a healthy heart is required for healthy manhood – specifically, that great blood flow is a must to get and maintain tumescence.

Those who are too heavy might notice that their hardness is no longer as strong as it once was, or that they don’t last if they once did.

 

5) He might seem to be “smaller” than he used to be.

No, the member doesn’t get smaller, but it can certainly look like it has. Why? Because every man has a “fat pad” right above his manhood.

When a guy is fit, he doesn’t notice this area at all. But as a guy gains weight, that fat pad becomes bigger, and eventually, it protrudes enough to make the member look smaller.

This can affect what a partner thinks the first time she lays eyes on the equipment.

 

6) He might get depressed.

Self-esteem is vitally important for anyone, and a guy who is suffering in that area might suffer in other ways, too.

When a man starts to feel trapped by the extra weight and feels as though losing it is hopeless or will take far too long. He might become depressed, anxious, withdrawn, and a whole host of other things that don’t bode well for his relationships.

When a man is dealing with too much weight, keeping healthy manhood might be enough incentive to help a man start losing it.

To avoid male organ problems in the meantime, a guy should reach for a great member health crème(Health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) every day.

The right crème will contain amino acids like L-carnitine and L-arginine, which work together to help improve blood flow as well as protect nerve function.

A traditional Japanese diet is well balanced

 

 

Japanese Diet

By Chie Sanjo

 

The Most Effective Meal Plan for Weight Loss –

 

Japanese food is known to be a highly effective diet for weight loss. It is extremely low fat, low calorie, and high protein diet suitable for people of all ages. In this article, the author discusses a perfect Japanese meal plan for weight loss from various viewpoints.

 

 

The Healthiest Diet to Lose Weight.

 

If you want to lose weight healthily and keep it off, then a Japanese diet is the way to go. Aiming simply to lose weight despite the method you use leads to rebounding and ends up being ineffective. If you are serious about losing weight, you should make a long-term plan which gets your body in shape in a healthy way. Japanese food is one of the effective diets you can follow and has recently become a worldwide phenomenon. It is the healthiest meal plan for weight loss with an extremely high success rate.

 

 

Japanese Food as a World Heritage.

 

In December 2013, Japanese food has been listed as an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). Particularly acclaimed was the excellent nutritional balance of fresh foods with a wide variety of ingredients and its ability to express the changing of the four seasons.

 

If you look at the world’s healthiest country ranking by WHO (World Health Organization), Japan has ranked in the top 5 for the last 50 years! Being extremely low fat, low calorie, and high protein, changing your daily diet to a Japanese style will bring a positive effect on your body.

 

 

5 Benefits of Eating Japanese Food.

 

Successful Weight Reduction

Relieve Constipation

Prevent Lifestyle Diseases

Improve Dental Problems

Nutritious and Balanced Diet for Beautiful Skin

 

  1. Successful Weight Reduction.

 

The first thing to keep in mind when making a weight loss program is calorie intake. A traditional Japanese meal set which consists of rice, miso soup, and dishes such as grilled fish, boiled vegetables, seaweed, and soybeans is low in calories and high in protein, yet still satisfying. It is a whole-foods-based diet with minimal amounts of animal protein, added sugars, and fast, so you can avoid high-calorie, processed foods.

 

  1. Relieve Constipation.

 

Japanese diet generally contains enough vegetables and is rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Fiber is particularly an important nutrient for dieters as it helps regulate the intestinal environment. Japanese food is a weight-loss-friendly meal as you can consciously consume these essential nutrients without being aware of it.

 

  1. Prevent Lifestyle Diseases.

 

Too much fat intake can lead to excessive consumption of saturated fatty acids such as meat and butter. If you continue this eating habit, your cholesterol levels and triglycerides will eventually rise. Cholesterol and triglycerides interfere with smooth blood flow and make the bloodthirsty, which causes a variety of diseases including arteriosclerosis, so you must take an early improvement. This is where the Japanese diet rich in fish and seafood comes in as a countermeasure.

 

Seafood, especially bluefish, is high in unsaturated fatty acids and activates brain cells due to its high levels of DHA, in addition to thinning the blood. Not only does it prevent the intake of too much fat, but it also works on other organs while supplying protein, so be sure to include it in your menu.

 

  1. Improve Dental Problems.

 

Sugar and processed foods can cause tooth decay. Japanese cuisine which focuses on raw and crunchy foods encourages the behavior of chewing. Chewing food is an important activity that helps your body produce saliva to aid in digestion and promote tooth and bone development. Chewing also stimulates your satiety center which helps you feel satisfied at an earlier stage of your meal, and as a result, you will not overeat more than you need to.

 

  1. Nutritious and Balanced Diet for Beautiful Skin.

 

Japanese food contains many ingredients and is a great source of fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Adding a side dish to your daily diet, especially one with plenty of vegetables, will balance your nutrition without strain. Keep an eye on your nutritional balance to maintain your skin condition and your health.

 

 

How to Start the Japanese Diet?

 

If you are newcomers, switching all your meals to Japanese style will not be easy, so start with replacing one of your daily meals with Japanese food.

 

The Basis of the Japanese Diet “1 Soup + 3 Dishes”

 

The basis of a Japanese diet is a balance of one soup and three dishes.

 

1 Staple Food: Supplies carbohydrates as a source of energy.

1 Soup: Rehydrates your body.

3 Dishes: Make up for the lack of nutrients in the staple food and soup.

3 Tips for “1 Soup + 3 Dishes”

 

Be Efficient in Meal Prep and Last Long

Use Low-Calorie Ingredients

Avoid Deep-Fried Foods for Dinner

 

  1. Be Efficient in Meal Prep and Last Long.

 

One main dish and two side dishes may seem like a lot of work. When you are short on time, choose a simple menu such as grilled fish as the main dish. You can use commercial products such as tofu or seaweed for side dishes, or a salad with raw vegetables can be an alternative. If you are not comfortable making side dishes every day, prepare them in advance or use the freezing technique.

 

  1. Use Low-Calorie Ingredients.

 

An advantage of the Japanese diet is bulking low-calorie foods that increase the volume of your meals. Try to include okara (tofu), konnyaku (konjac), and mushrooms which are all low in calories. For example, incorporate mushroom soup and tofu side dishes, as well as miso soup with lots of vegetables.

 

  1. Avoid Deep-Fried Foods for Dinner.

 

It will be better if you keep a balance of three daily meals. Breakfast acts as a source of energy. Even if you eat high-calorie foods in the morning, they are less likely to turn into fat because of the long period of activity that follows. On the other hand, try to avoid fried foods and take a light meal for dinner. You can cut down on calories by selecting raw or boiled ingredients rather than fried or stir-fried foods.

Want to know the fastest way to lose weight? The article talks about the most effective time of the day to lose weight and simple tips to start the program!

 

 

Burn Fat in the Morning and Accelerated your Weight Loss Velocity!

 

Morning weight loss program? You may be thinking, “I’m busy in the morning…” but if it only takes 10 minutes to make you lose weight, would you be interested? Exercise is essential for getting the body you want and there are indeed certain times of the day that are more suitable for workouts. So, let us talk about the most efficient way to lose weight. Here are some benefits and tips for the best time of the day to take exercise and how to improve its efficiency.

 

 

3 Benefits of Morning Workouts

 

Increased Metabolism

Regulates your Lifestyle and Feel Better

Easier to Burn Fat

 

  1. Increased Metabolism

 

One of the benefits of exercising in the morning is an increase in metabolism, and this is related to the autonomic nervous system. Fat is burned at any time of the day, but it is particularly easy to burn when the sympathetic nervous system is active. When you relax, the parasympathetic nerves are dominant, but in the daytime, the sympathetic nerves become dominant and your body temperature goes up. You can accelerate this activity by exercising in the morning, and your basal metabolism is increased by 10%.

 

  1. Regulates your Lifestyle and Feel Better

 

The sympathetic nerves become dominant through morning activities, which switches the body into daytime mode. Once the body awakens, serotonin, known as happy hormones, gets released and you will be able to greet a crisp morning. The brain also goes into an active mode which regulates the body rhythm and spreads more serotonin, making the mind even healthier. You will be able to spend a refreshing day and improve your work efficiency.

 

  1. Easier to Burn Fat

 

The energy used in activities is generally consumed in the order of carbohydrates to fat. However, the food you eat is digested while you sleep at night, and in the morning, you wake up with a hungry body with low blood sugar levels, and you automatically use fat as a source of energy. Therefore, if you exercise at that time, fat is easily burned.

 

Exercising on an empty stomach right after waking up can hurt your body, so drink a glass of water first and preferably take a light sip of something easily digestible such as a banana or a jelly before you do it. Also, remember to hydrate frequently during your workout.

 

 

How to Start a Morning Wight Loss Program?

 

Get up 20 minutes earlier than usual.

Drink a glass of warm water.

Eat fruit.

Stretch your body.

Take simple workouts.

 

  1. Get up 20 minutes earlier than usual.

 

One hour or two in the morning sounds like a high wall, so let us start by waking up 20~30 minutes early.

 

  1. Drink a glass of warm water.

 

When you wake up, drink a glass of warm water to rehydrate your body. Avoid taking cold or pungent drinks first thing in the morning, as they may overstimulate your stomach. The key to drinking is to take it in small sips, little by little. Let the water soak into your body slowly.

 

  1. Eat fruit.

 

When time is short in the morning, you tend to eat quick bread or leave the house without any food, right? The fruit is one of the recommended options you can eat as your breakfast. The enzymes in the fruit will promote elimination which helps your body to metabolize better. Fruit also contains the right amount of sugar, vitamins, and minerals that the body can easily absorb, and it keeps you hydrated.

 

  1. Stretch your body.

 

When you just wake up from your deep sleep, your body is not yet awake and is lacking in water and energy. Strenuous exercise in this state can be overloading on the body, so start by stretching your body which is not too painful to get yourself out of bed to turn on your body switch. Activating your body in the morning is also a great way to boost your metabolism, and the benefits are endless.

 

  1. Take simple workouts.

 

Once you complete the stretching sequence and your body turns into an active mode, some easy strength training you can do at homes such as squats and tiptoe lift will be the next step. Stimulating the lower body muscles can reduce swelling and firm the entire body. Start from 5~10 times each day if you do not take a regular based exercise.

 

The weight loss program in the early morning may be hard at first, but you will soon begin to enjoy it once you get used to it. Morning workouts are one of the most effective ways to lose weight fast. Why don’t you have a go tomorrow?

 

 

 

 

 

Weight loss, fitness, losing weight bright colorful tone concept

 

 

Losing Weight goals.

 

Losing weight is more than just losing the fat, flab, and extra pounds on your body.

Of course, by putting in the hard work of exercising and dieting, you will be able to create a slimmer, leaner, and sexier physique.

 

While it is your body that will perform all the hard work, the hard work actually begins in your mind.

Without dedication, determination, and the willpower to reach your weight loss goal,  you are unlikely to reach your goal.

 

So, you should start losing weight by setting realistic goals that your mind can easily focus on and work towards. Take a look at these three tips that will help you.

 

 

Losing Weight: Short-term goals must be set.

 

Your progress needs to calculate in a short time like a week or two. Until the completion of the program, this process can repeat over and over while you are losing weight.

 

In this type of plan, you won’t frustrate at your lack of progress because you will be keeping goals that you can realize.

When you look at a diet and exercise program that only lasts a week, think about how possible that is to do, and then just do it another week.

 

Basically, all you need to do is change your mentality from a month to a week, such as lose 2 pounds a week rather than 10 pounds a month. Thinking about only seven days is a much better way.

Instead of saying that you will exercise every day, you can aim for a 15-minute walk after dinner each day.

 

 

Energizing pursuits:

 

Whatever you are most passionate about should become your aim.

To continue with your goals no matter how tough things become, will only happen by setting goals close to your heart.

 

You might think that it won’t happen to you, but it will get tough. Weight loss demands are tough to keep up since there will come a time when the physical work will be too hard, or the mental determination will fall away.

 

Being happy is important to most people, and quite often the passionate desire to be happy is their reason for wanting to lose weight.

Weight loss is personal, so you need your own reason for losing weight. Lose weight because you want to, period.

 

 

No postponing:

 

Get the job done,  there is no time like the present. Once you have a plan of action, start without delay.

Walking off some of your Meals is a good idea. Sit-ups can finish while watching your T.V. in the evening. You could amend your meals to include more healthy options.

 

Empty your kitchen of any foods that might tempt you. Anytime you can expend a little energy in your day, you are that much closer to achieving a rewarding finish.

To keep yourself from overeating, measure up smaller portions. Even the seemingly trivial matters have value when looking at the whole scheme of things.

 

Certainly, the more decisive the strategy, the better the odds you will have to be triumphant. Write down your goals, get a buddy to help you achieve these goals, and get working on those goals now.

 

 

 

15 Things Not to Say to a Someone Who Just Lost Weight

 

 

 

Losing Weight – Factors to Consider

By Paul D Kennedy

There are many reasons why being overweight is bad for your health. It can, for example, cause or aggravate type 2 diabetes. Obesity is also a risk factor for heart disease and other cardiovascular problems.

 

So, what do you have to do to lose weight?

 

Eat less and move more is the trite answer usually received by someone who is overweight.

 

Of course, you can lose weight by reducing the food you eat (energy intake) or increasing the amount of exercise you get (energy output).

 

But the problem of effective weight loss is much more complex than simply changing the balance between the calories you consume and the calories you expend in your daily activities.

 

The search for an effective weight-loss formula requires answers to these four questions:

 

Does genetics play a role in your weight problems and, if so, what can you do about it?

How many calories do you need to cut from your diet to lose one pound or kilogram?

What are the best types of foods (carbs, fats, or proteins) to cut for losing weight?

Is exercise much good in helping you lose weight or for keeping weight off?

 

 

How genes affect your weight.

 

Many people do their utmost to lose weight without much success. Once they have lost a few kilos, they find it extremely difficult to keep their weight down… it just rises back up again.

 

This suggests that the problem is genetic.

 

In fact, more than 30 genes have been linked to obesity. The one with the strongest link in the fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO).

 

The obesity-risk variant of the FTO gene affects one in six of the population. Studies suggest that persons who have this gene are 70% more likely to become obese.

 

According to research published in the UK in 2013 in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, people with this gene have higher levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone, in their blood. This means they start to feel hungry again soon after eating a meal.

 

In addition, real-time brain imaging shows that the FTO gene variation changes the way the brain responds to ghrelin and images of food in the regions of the brain linked to the control of eating and reward.

 

 

FTO Genetic Cause.

 

These findings explain why people with the obesity-risk variant of the FTO gene eat more and prefer higher calorie foods… even before they become overweight… compared with those with the low-risk version of the gene.

 

The FTO gene is not the only genetic cause of obesity, which is likely to be due to the sum of several genes working together.

 

If you have these ‘bad’ genes, however, you are not necessarily destined to become overweight… but you are more likely to end up obese if you over-eat.

 

Having these genes also means that you will need to exercise greater discipline over your diet throughout your life, especially when you have managed to shred a few pounds and want to keep them off.

 

 

How many calories should you cut to lose weight?

 

The big question for dieters has always been… how many calories do I need to cut out of my diet to reduce my weight by a set amount, e.g. one pound or kilogram?

 

Once upon a time, there was a clear-cut answer to this question.

 

In 1958 Max Wishnofsky, a New York doctor. Wrote a paper that summed up everything known at that time about how calories are stored in our bodies. He concluded that, if your weight is being held steady, it would take a deficit of 3,500 calories to lose one pound (454 grams) in weight.

 

You could create the calorie deficit either by eating less or exercising more (to use up more calories).

 

For example, if your weight is holding steady on a diet of 2,000 calories a day and you reduce your intake to 1,500 calories a day, you will lose one pound (nearly half a kilo) in one week, i.e. 52 pounds or 24kg a year.

 

Alternatively, you could burn an extra 500 calories a day (through exercise) to lose the same amounts of weight over the same time periods.

 

For years, the Wishnofsky rule was accepted as a verified fact. It underpinned a wide variety of diets.

 

The only problem is that the rule is wrong. It fails to consider the changes in metabolism that take place when you go on a weight-reducing diet.

 

 

Doe’s The Wishnofsky rule works initially.

 

The Wishnofsky rule works initially. But after a week or two, your weight reaches its minimal level, much to the frustration of myriads of dieters, as your metabolism adjusts to the decrease in your body mass and your reduced intake of food.

 

Until recently there was no way to predict how consuming fewer calories affects the rate at which you will lose weight, especially when your goal is to lose more than just a few pounds or kilograms.

 

There are now, however, new complex weight-loss formulas that factor in the drop in metabolic rate that occurs over time as body mass decreases. One example is the Body Weight Planner from the National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney and Digestive Diseases in the USA.

 

 

What types of foods should you cut to lose weight?

 

What types of foods should you cut to lose weight?

 

Should you reduce your calories from your fat, carbohydrate, or protein intake? Which will help you lose weight faster?

 

The numbers of calories in one gram of each of the basic food types are as follows:

 

Fat… 9 calories per gram

 

Drinking Alcohol… 7 calories per gram

 

Proteins… 4 calories per gram

 

Carbohydrates… 4 calories per gram

 

Dietary Fiber… 2 calories per gram

 

As fats contain more than twice as many calories as carbs and proteins. Reducing the fats you eat will work twice as quickly as a reduction in either of the other two types of foods, gram for gram.

 

 

Beating Diabetes Diet. 

 

Therefore, diets that concentrate on reducing the fat you eat. As the Beating Diabetes Diet and the Mediterranean Diet are effective in reducing weight.

 

But if you want to cut your calorie intake by a fixed amount a day (say 500 calories). Will it make any difference as to which type of food you cut down on?

 

For example, will it make any difference to the amount of weight you lose if you cut 55.6 grams of fat (500 calories) or 125g of carbs (500 calories), or 125g of protein (500 calories) from your diet?

 

The answer is that there is little difference in the number of weight people lose whether they cut their calories from carbs or fat.

 

But calories from proteins are different… according to researchers, high-protein diets tend to increase the number of calories you burn. Why this is so is not clear.

 

However, when people lose weight, they lose muscle as well as fat. The more muscle you lose the more your metabolism slows down which reduces the rate at which you lose weight.

 

Because it preserves muscle, a protein-based diet may reduce the rate at which your metabolism slows down.

 

The problem is that, if you eat too much protein, you could end up damaging your kidneys. The generally accepted recommendation is that you limit your protein intake to a maximum of 35% of your total daily intake of calories.

 

So, provided you don’t eat too much protein, it is best to reduce weight by cutting down on fats. (For the sake of your heart, etc.) and refined carbs that spike blood glucose levels (especially if you have diabetes).

 

 

Does exercise help you lose weight or keep it off?

 

Cutting down on the food you eat is the best way to lose weight. Exercise is less important, at least in the initial stages.

 

Exercising when you are trying to lose weight can be tricky. It burns calories for sure but not nearly as many as not eating those calories in the first place.

 

And exercise increases your appetite. So it is easy to eat back on all the calories you burn during an intense workout.

 

The recommendation, when you are cutting your food intake to lose weight, is to focus on moderate physical activities. Such as gardening or brisk walking, rather than going to the gym.

 

But once you have shed those extra pounds and are down to your ideal weight, exercise becomes important for maintaining your weight at its new healthier level.

 

Researchers have found that most people lose weight and manage to keep it off. For at least a year exercise regularly for up to an hour every day.

 

Paul D Kennedy used his skills as an international consultant and researcher. To find a way to control his diabetes using diet alone and, about seven years ago, he stopped taking medications to control his blood glucose levels.

Acid Reflux.

By Li Zheng 

 

Acid reflux, also known as heartburn. Is the result of the lower esophageal sphincter either not closing at all? Or closing inadequately and allowing the acid produced; by the stomach to go up into the esophagus.

Common causes of acid reflux include. The presence of a hiatal hernia, being overweight, and having unhealthy eating habits.

The common symptoms experienced during acid reflux include. A sensation of bloating, burping, nausea, and dysphagia or narrowing of the esophagus.

Acid reflux can be treated with lifestyle changes; such as adopting a healthier style of eating. As well as a healthy choice of foods. This acupuncture is also known to provide relief and target at the root cause of acid reflux.

 

 

Treatment of the Root Cause.

 

People suffering from GERD often have indigestion along with symptoms. Such as acid regurgitation and frequent burping.

Medications offer some symptomatic relief, but over a period, it may worsen symptoms. Or the patient may suffer side effects such as headaches and muscle cramps.

Treating the root cause is the only way to rid the patient of this problem. Failure to treat it can lead to an increased risk of esophageal cancer, Barrett’s esophagus, or chronic coughing.

The increasing presence of this disease in the population. Has led to intensive research to find definite causes for its appearance. As well as possible alternative treatments including acid reflux acupuncture.

 

 

Conditions That Cause.

 

The presence of a hiatal hernia causes acid to escape into the esophagus. As a result of the upper part of the stomach protruding over the diaphragm.

Additionally, malabsorption of food is also known to be a factor of acid reflux. As a result of this, there is a build-up of stomach pressure. Which causes the opening of the sphincter between the esophagus and stomach.

Aging is another factor that causes acid reflux. Aging also causes a decrease in the production of stomach acid which leads to less efficient digestion.

Unhealthy food habits such as snacking or eating big or spicy meals close to bedtime. It does not allow the food to digest adequately and exerts pressure on the diaphragm.

While medications help to relieve the immediate effects of acid reflux. They can also cause malabsorption of vitamins and minerals.

Furthermore, long-term use of antacids can cause anxiety, panic attack, heart problems, and neuropathy.

 

 

Treating with Acupuncture.

 

Acupuncture focuses on the roles of the pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, and liver in the digestion of food.

A disruption in the function of any of these organs can cause acid reflux and other digestive problems.

Acupuncture uses fine needles to stimulate these acupuncture points. To help restore the normal function of the digestive system.

Acupuncture can also help tone the sphincter muscles between the stomach and the esophagus. As a result of treatment, you will be able to digest food; with normal movements of the stomach and intestine.

Since emotional distress can also upset the digestive pattern. The acupuncturist also formulates a therapy program. That helps the patient reduce stress and strengthen their digestive function.

Dr. Li Zheng, Ph.D. is a licensed acupuncturist & herbalist with a Ph.D. in medical science. A graduate of the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. Who practiced as a physician in China, she has 26 years of experience?

In addition, she is also a professor. And clinical supervisor of the New England School of Acupuncture; a consultant for Health Grid Inc. And the author of two books, “Acupuncture and Hormone Balance” and “Chinese Acupuncture, and, Herbs for Common Diseases”.

How Stress Is Causing Your Digestive Problems.

By Nick Kowalski

 

Most of us have direct experience of how chronic. Or intense psychological stress can affect the digestive system.

Ancient practitioners of Chinese Medicine. It also theorized that the gut (particularly the Liver) was the seat of emotions.

Modern science explains this phenomenon, discovering that up to 90%. Of our neurotransmitters and hormone are produced in the gut.

 

 

What Happens to Digestion When We’re Stressed?

 

Something not many of us knows, at least logically, is that the digestive system. Is in fact governed by the Central Nervous System. Namely, a sub-branch of the nervous system referred to as the “parasympathetic nervous system”.

The parasympathetic system is our “rest and digest” state. Only when we are relaxed and free of stress. Do the parasympathetic system and therefore digestion, activate?

When we enter a state of stress, the counterpart to the parasympathetic system; the sympathetic system, activates.

This stress state or the “flight or fight” response shuts down digestion by reducing blood flow. To the digestive organs, it inhibits digestive fluid secretion. And instead sends the blood and biological energy to the muscular-skeletal system, to prepare for battle.

When the sympathetic system is chronically stimulated by prolonged stress. It can lead to gastrointestinal disorders, inflammation, and weaken the immune system.

 

 

One example of how stress can cause common digestive issues.

 

Is by causing the esophagus to spasm and altering stomach acid secretion.

This leads to heartburn, acid reflux and can make you feel nauseous. Another example is the effects stress has on the colon. Intense stress increases the secretion of stress hormones cortisol, prolactin, and serotonin. Which can cause the colon to become hyperactive or tense, which leads to diarrhea or constipation?

When any of these conditions become persistent. The inflammation and overall poor functioning of the digestive system can eventually lead to stomach ulcers, IBS, and inflammatory bowel disease.

 

 

How to Manage Stress for Better Digestion.

 

Reducing total stress is not a quick-fix job, it requires a holistic, multi-factorial approach. However, psychological stress is one of the primary, dominant stressors; that negatively affect the digestive system.

While getting a handle on the causes of psychological stress can take time. There are some simple things you can do to mitigate their effects.

One simple way to de-stress is to engage in fun, moderate exercise. Physical exercise relieves tension, gets us out of our heads. It improves our mood by releasing endorphins but also helps with the elimination of stress hormones.

Some of the healthiest forms of exercise include. Walking, hiking, biking, swimming, dancing, yoga, Thai qi, and weightlifting.

 

 

Other great ways to reduce stress include:

 

Relaxation – People with digestive issues are often overly stressed and do not relax enough. Getting authentic, deep relaxation is more challenging in today’s world. But can be achieved through yoga, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation. Visualization, cognitive therapy, biofeedback, good music, spending time in nature, camping, lovemaking. And working on an enjoyable project or hobby.

 

 

Communication therapy – A major source of psychological stress dwells in the world of communication.

 

In fact, most stress and problems in life have their roots in communication trouble. If you’ve ever been in a situation where you didn’t know what to say. Someone wasn’t talking to you; you know the stress associated with poor communication.

Taking courses or reading books communications can be helpful for improving. Our quality of life, relationships, and reducing a great source of stress.

However, simply having a good friend or loved one you can talk to freely about your stress. It can be a major stress reliever. Personally, I have found cognitive therapy to be a major help in relieving chronic stress in my life.

There are even studies that have demos rated a 70 percent improvement. In stress symptoms after 12 weeks of cognitive therapy.

 

Nutrition –

 

A bad diet can ruin a good digestive system. Poor nutrition can be a source of biological stress, but also, eating the right foods can help curb the effects of stress.

In general, it is helpful to eat more protein and salt when stressed. In fact, soldiers in the army are required to eat a higher protein diet to mitigate the catabolic effects of combat.

So, it is best to take a two-sided approach nutritionally, where you avoid junk foods. That adds to your stress and eat nutrient-dense, wholesome foods that help replenish a stressed body.

 

Choose your battles –

 

An interesting thing about life is that problems seem to be valuable. If we had no problems at all, we’d be existentially bored.

So, the goal is not to eliminate all problems and stress from our lives. Instead, we need to pick our problems wisely.

For example, starting a new fulfilling relationship will have its challenges. But in the end, the problems are usually worth it.

The same goes for starting a new project or goal. A good rule of thumb is that any given condition in life would ideally be 80% pleasure with 20% pain.

The pain is the optimal amount of stress that just makes like interesting and helps us grow.

 

 

In Conclusion

 

Mental and emotional stress can cause a lot of problems for an otherwise healthy digestive system.

Stress all together is unavoidable, it seems to be a natural part of the game of life.

What’s important is how we react to our stress and problems. And that we ultimately avoid it from becoming chronic.

If you know you are under too much stress and/or have symptoms of digestive stress. Then, these tips will help.

If stress management is the problem, there are cognitive therapists. Yoga, and meditation instructors who can provide verified help.

Eczema-Dermatitis is a condition which affects the skin which can affect anyone.

 

 

 

Eczema and Dermatitis.

By Zubair A

 

What is eczema?

 

There are two main types of eczema, atopic and contact. Atopic eczema is usually found in folds of skin, such as armpits, behind kneecaps in on the joints of your arm. Atopic eczema is common in individuals who have either a personal. Or the family history of hay fever or asthma as “atopy” often runs in families. The second type is called contact eczema, and this most commonly occurs on the hands and feet.

Eczema affects the skin and is inflammatory. Causing the skin to become dry, red, itchy, and cracked which in turn can lead to further problems and discomfort. See the symptoms below for more information.

Eczema commonly affects young children at an early age. But will often disappear within a year or so, or perhaps as the child reaches the teenage years.

It can also persist for a longer period and in some cases, sufferers may not have any symptoms until they reach adulthood. In some cases, individuals develop eczema in later years.

For some, however, the condition will be with them long-term, possibly for the duration of their life. And can lead to a lot of discomfort and frustration.

A study in 2009 suggested that cases of eczema were on the rise, increasing by some 40% in the previous four years. It is still not known what exactly causes eczema. Nor is there an outright cure for the condition. Atopic eczema often passes on through generations of a family. And sufferers of atopic conditions will often have others in addition to eczema.

 

 

What are the symptoms of eczema/dermatitis?

 

The predominant symptom associated with eczema or dermatitis is itching. And the areas of skin affected will also become red, dry, flaky, and often cracked. The itching may be limited to just one area of the body, such as an arm or hand, or it may be widespread on feet, legs, hands, and other areas.

The symptoms will also differ from person-to-person in terms of severity. With some having only minor irritation from the itches and subsequent skin damage. While others will have particularly distressing and long-lasting symptoms.

One of the issues with eczema is that the more the sufferer itches the affected area, the worse condition that the skin will then be in.

Eczema can be further mess up due to the deterioration effect of the area of skin. If a sufferer itches a lot, skin can become cracked and open which can lead to infected eczema – which typically requires doctor-prescribed treatment.

 

 

Non-medical treatment of eczema

In addition to purchasing specialist creams and seeing your GP. There are other steps that you can take to relieve symptoms of eczema. Additionally, it may be possible for you to identify things that trigger your eczema, in which case you can take preventative action.

Areas to concentration on that may make a difference include:

 

 

Hydration.

Dehydration can cause the skin to become drier than usual. There is evidence to suggest that a lack of hydration can affect cells in your body and trigger eczema. So you may find that keeping yourself hydrated throughout the day can help with your skin condition.

 

 

Clothing.

Clothing can also further irritate a sufferer’s skin. Especially if it causes them to become too hot or the fabric itself irritates the skin (e.g. woolen jumpers). Additionally, if you wear gloves at home or at work for tasks such as washing dishes or doing gardening, then be careful which type you use. Rubber gloves, for example, have been known to irritate skin and thus worsen eczema.

 

 

Soaps and shower gels.

Pay attention to the soaps, hand wash, and shower gels that you use each day. Many mainstream soaps and cosmetics cause the skin to become drier than before using them, despite sometimes claiming to the contrary.

Again, it can differ person-to-person, so if you find your skin is regularly dry in the hours after taking a shower. Then look for alternative and perhaps medicated alternatives from your local pharmacy.

 

 

Daily activities.

Finally, beware of the impact of routine daily activities can have. If you wash your hands at work after going to the toilet, for example, ensure you dry your hands properly. Also, frequent washing and drying of hands can make eczema on the hands worse so it is important to use a soap substitute.

 

 

Medical treatment of eczema.

 

If you notice that you have symptoms of eczema, at first you should seek help from your pharmacist who can offer over-the-counter creams and ointments from your local pharmacy. There are many creams available to help moisturize your skin and thus relieve the symptoms of eczema.

However, the effectiveness of each will differ from one patient to the next. So you may need to prepare to try several before you find one which works best for you. These emollient creams should use at least 3-4 times per day – ensuring that your skin is kept well hydrated throughout the day.

Some creams can also double up as a soap substitute for showering and washing your hands with. Many flare-ups of eczema happen when individuals do not use enough of these creams often enough and this is one of the first things that your doctor will recommend for you to do.

 

If your symptoms are quite bad, do not go away within a couple of weeks, or over-the-counter medications have not worked, then it is advisable to see a GP. A GP will first confirm whether you do have eczema and then possibly prescribe a steroid cream to use on your eczema when it is particularly troublesome.

The GP will normally recommend that you keep on using copious amounts of the emollient creams in addition to any prescribed steroid cream. Very rarely, a GP may have to refer you to a specialist if your eczema is particularly troublesome and not responding to the normal treatment.

Introduction to Six Effects of Enzymes in the Human Body.

From birth to death, enzymes have been active in our human body. After the cells’ nutrients are gradually lost to death, the enzyme will lose its effectiveness. The organs that make enzymes are the digestive organs and internal organs.

Do you know when enzymes begin to produce in the human body? The answer is that they existed during the egg and sperm period. It is also because of the activity of the enzyme that the egg and sperm can be combined.

Cell division must use enzyme as the medium so that the egg and sperm can combine in the mother body to produce new life. From birth to death, enzymes have been active in the human body. After the cells’ nutrients are gradually lost to death, the enzyme will lose its effectiveness.

The organs that make enzymes are the digestive organs and internal organs. The enzymes produced are mix in the blood and flow to various work positions to carry out their own work.

 

 

Eating.

 

When we eat, saliva immediately produces an enzyme called sialidase, which breaks down the starch in rice into maltose. Secondly, when food enters the stomach, an enzyme called gastrin appears immediately, decomposing proteins such as meat to some extent.

Next is the small intestine, which contains enzymes such as an intestinal enzyme, amylase, lipase, etc., which can decompose protein and fat. After these procedures, food is decomposed into a form that can be easily digested and absorbed. These nutrients convert into energy and substances that constitute cells.

 

It can be seen from the above digestion process that the smooth operation of enzymes can make the various functions of the human body function normally. Without enzymes, the human body immediately died. Therefore, we believe that enzymes are the source of life.

 

 

Our way of life and diet is constantly changing.

To increase the shelf life of foods, more and more foods have been specially processed. As a result, many of the digestive enzymes inherent in the food itself that help the body absorb nutrients may have been exhausted during this process. To make food consumption safer, our bodies must work harder to break down and digest food.

 

Enzymes can provide these important digestive enzymes and beneficial microorganisms for your body recovery so that you can fully absorb the nutrition of food and make up for the defects of processed food. The six functions of enzymes are below:

 

 

Maintain good physical condition

This function is to keep the blood weakly alkaline, maintain a balanced bacterium in the intestine, strengthen cells to promote digestion and strengthen the resistance to pathogenic bacteria.

 

 

Anti-inflammatory effect.

It is also a conditioning function of the internal environment. The so-called inflammation refers to inflammation caused by local cell damage and destruction. In fact, the enzyme has no healing power, but it can transport a large number of white blood cells to give the cells the power to heal wounds.

No matter what kind of disease, the most basic treatment still depends on the body’s self-healing ability. Even special effects drugs and antibiotics can only destroy pathogenic bacteria.

 

 

Antibacterial effect.

 

In addition to promoting the fungus-eating effect of white blood cells, the enzyme also has an antibacterial effect, which is eliminating the original bacteria. On the other hand, enzymes have a role in promoting cell regeneration and can fundamentally treat diseases.

 

 

Decomposition.

This is an important function of enzymes. Decompose and eliminate the pus and dirt in the affected area or remaining in the blood vessel and restore the body to a normal state. In addition, promoting the digestion and absorption of food is also one of the decomposition effects.

 

Blood purification.

Decompose and excrete waste products in the blood and viruses produced by inflammation. In addition, it can break down cholesterol, keep the blood weakly alkaline, promote blood circulation, and at the same time treat diseases such as baldness, shoulder pain, and bruises.

The importance of keywords used in any content that is placed on the Web.

 

 

Keywords and Content.

By Bob Edwards

 

 

The Importance of Keywords in Your Online Business

 

There is no denying the importance of keywords used in any content that is placed on the Web. Keywords allow you and everyone else who uses the Web the ability to find what you are looking for. If you need just one bit of information. You likely will spend countless hours in research trying to find it if it was not for keywords.

 

As an Internet marketing professional, how do keywords relate to your own business? Usually, if you are using the Web as a marketing tool in any way, keywords are an important component.

 

We also compare it to the importance of quality content. Is it possible to have great content and still have great keywords in your final copy? It is possible, and in fact, it is necessary to do this if you wish to have a successful website or blog. Before getting into these details, let us start at the beginning.

 

 

What are Keywords and Where to Use Them-

 

What are the keywords? These are words individuals will type into a search box when they are looking for something online. For example, let us say you are looking to purchase a table. You get online, go to the search box, and type in the word “table” into the search box.

The search engines start looking for websites that relate to your search. Within seconds, there is a long list of results in front of you (called the search engine results page) that you can choose from.

 

Now, on the flip side of the coin, if you owned a website selling tables, you would want to attract this person to your website. To do so, you need to have your website displayed on the search engine results page.

To do this, you need to have the most appropriate keywords on your website. So, for example, you need to have the world “table” used properly on your website for the search engine results to see your website as valuable to this search.

 

 

SEO-

 

Using keywords will help you prove your value to the search engines. The key is to know what helps you to rank well and what may not help you. Less than a decade ago, people took advantage of the keywords. Pages and pages of websites had virtually nothing but keywords on them. The problem is, when a website is packed with just keywords, it is likely not to be packed with information.

 

Here is an example to consider: John designs a website to attract visitors who he hopes will visit the affiliate pages he is linking to. So, he plans to put lots of keywords on his page. That way, his website will rank well, right?

 

There are two problems with this process. First, there is little chance that anyone who comes to such a page will feel it valuable enough to stick around and click onto affiliate links.

 

Second, Google and other search engines have made significant changes to their complex algorithms. Websites that have too many keywords on them will be ranked lower in the search engine results pages.

 

The key is to know what the actual best percentages are. Of course, Google is not going to tell you just how many keywords to use. They do offer a lot of in-depth information that you can use, though. It is this information that you want to rely on to get the results you are looking for. Google is not the bad guy: They want to provide individuals who use their search engines with the best websites online to solve their inquiries.

 

 

Where to Place/Use Keywords –

 

Where should you use keywords? Keywords should be found in virtually anything you place online. Here are some places to use them.

 

Always place them into each article on your website. Place them on your home page and sales pages. Place keywords in your blog posts. Therefore, use keywords in your product descriptions. Use keywords on your website and in your blog tags and headings. Use them on contact pages, FAQ pages, and just about any page on your website.

 

Doing this is essential to getting a high page ranking in the search engine result pages. Yet, you do not have to make this a complex process. In fact, it is often best to put keywords in the back of your mind while writing content for your website. Write what really matters and then come back to keywords later.

 

 

Content is King –

 

One of the earliest phrases used still stands true. “Content is king” when it comes to Internet marketing. If you are putting up a page on your website, you want the person who visits your website to say, “Wow, this is great. I’m bookmarking this page to come back here often.”

 

The best way to do this is to include quality information on each of the pages of content you provide to your readers. In a few minutes, we will go through the process of providing quality content. Before doing so, consider what would happen if you did not have good information on your website.

 

Used keywords where and how.

  1. You use keywords on your pages but fill them with fluff content. Your reader gets to your page and thinks, “this does not help me,” and moves on.

 

  1. The reader gets to your website and finds errors. You can no longer be trusted, and they leave your site.

 

  1. The affiliate programs you are working to earn money from visiting your website. They find it poorly designed with little information. Also, decide that you are not a good fit for their company. They no longer offer you membership in the affiliate program.

 

  1. You get no inbound links to your website. Inbound links are those which are pointing to your website. Google finds these to be valuable when ranking websites. If another website (or several of them) find your website to be a good resource, they will rank your website higher. But other websites will not do this if your content is poor in quality.

 

  1. You make little to no money at your website since it is poorly ranked and is not attracting any repeat visitors.

 

Content for your website needs to be well-written and organized. It needs to be informative and useful to anyone who will visit and read it.

 

Best Strategies Keywords and Content.

 

Now that you have the basics about keyword usage and the importance of content, how do you bring the two things together so that your website will prosper?

 

There is no direct formula for doing so, but you can find some real results if you implement several known methods to help you. Google itself often provides a lot of suggestions in terms of keyword usage. In your balancing act for quality content and keyword ranking, keep the following strategies in mind.

 

 

Go with Quality Content First.

 

First things first, write quality content for your website. Nothing else will be as important to the success of your business has to have quality content on it. There are several ways you can do this successfully.

 

Information.

  1. Use information You want individuals to come to your website knowing that what you have to say is real and valuable to them. Therefore, each page should contain information. Before you post a blog post or an article, verify the information you are going to present. For example, going back to the example of the table search, be sure that you are providing information on the wood type, size, history, or other topics.

 

Interest.

  1. Make it interesting Coming to a website filled with lines and lines of information that is boring is going to be so dull people will leave. Without spending too much time in the process, add some statistics. Use descriptive language that paints the picture for the reader, “these mahogany tables are designed in the style used by Ancient Romans… “

 

Resource.

  1. Become a resource One of the best ways to ensure you have quality information on your website is to make your website the one-stop-shop for all information on that niche. For the reader, a website that contains all the information they need is going to be highly valuable. You may provide information about the history of tables, how to use tables… tips for staining them… and so on, for example. These items help you to become the resource these individuals need to have.

 

Be the Expert

  1. Be the expert for those who play a role in your website (and this is a very good thing) be sure that people who visit your website know that you are the expert in the field. You should stand out as being the authority. You do this when you provide valuable content to them. Do the hard research and find those interesting subjects to talk about. Answer questions. Relate to your customer base.

 

When you put these items together, the result is very simple. You have a website that is packed with great content that people can naturally benefit from reading.

 

Chances are also good that you also have a website that is filled with quality keywords. After all, if you are writing about your topic and exploring all areas of it, you likely are using the most important words related to it. Still, you should still do some research and get better quality keywords into your work.

 

 

 

Powerful Keywords You Can Use to Frame Striking SEO Strategy

 

 

Using Keywords Properly –

 

There is no better way to rank your quality content in the search engines than to use keywords properly. It is often the case that website owners see this as a step they can skip. Instead of doing the research to find the right keywords for their websites, they think they already know what they are. This is often not the case.

 

Finding the Right Keywords –

 

Finding the right keywords is a process that often involves researching using any of the free keyword search tools available. You can also use Google’s service to help you to do this.

 

Once you use these services, you are likely to get a list of keywords associated with your primary keyword. In our case, the keyword we plugged in is the word “tables.” As you are creating your table website, you have likely used several words that describe this product. But did you include all the most important words?

 

—–>”Jaaxy is the industry’s only keyword and research platform that was developed by affiliate marketers FOR affiliate marketers” Check Out Jaaxy Here <——

 

The top keywords, those used most often by users who are searching for the topic you have, should be included on your website. They do not have to be the only words that you use, though. These first words are heavily used and should be used at least somewhat in your website’s content where it is appropriate to do so.

 

For example, with the word “table,” the top five keywords used included:

 

Tables, Pub Table, Pedestal Table, Dining Table, and Glass Table

 

These words are going to be mentioned on your website because they are commonly used words for your niche.

 

 

What about those other keywords on the list?

 

If you look down the list, you will see other words that could relate to your website. They look good, but fewer people are using them to find information online. Often, it is best to include some of these too.

The reason for doing so is very simple. Most other website owners who are targeting keywords for their websites are using those top-tier words as well.

There is a lot of competition out there for those words. Therefore, even with a great website, there are likely others fighting right along with you. Since other words have less competition, you are more likely to rank well in the search page results for those keywords.

 

In the table example, the words “pedestal dining table,” “modern dining table,” Glass coffee table,” and “square tables” got far fewer hits than those top-tier keywords. The lower competition still makes them valuable.

 

Use a combination of those top-tier words and those that are far more specific if they relate to your website. This unique combination will ultimately give you better results in the long term.

 

 

Where to Use Keywords –

 

Now that you know which keywords you should have on your website; the next step is to consider the placement of keywords on your website. As mentioned earlier, there are various locations on your website that you can use keywords. Use all these locations for keywords.

 

Within each of those documents, you need to place keywords in the right locations. There are several things to keep in mind in the case of blogs and articles/web content. The following guidelines can help you to place keywords into these mediums appropriately.

 

Placement of keywords.

  1. Place keywords in the title of each page or article the best way to place keywords in the title is in the following format. “KEYWORD GOES HERE: Interesting Content Goes Here.” An example of the table website might be, “Pedestal Dining Table: 3 Tips for Buying the Right Dining Table.” This shows the search engines the importance of this word.

 

  1. Within the first 90 characters of the first paragraph, be sure your keyword appears again Also, it is important to note that you can use a mixture of keywords, but do consider having one or two primary keywords per article. Primary keywords should be in these locations. Again, this early positioning helps to show the importance of the keyword to that page.

 

  1. Use keywords in each of the paragraphs that you write on each page Do not overdo it, though. For example, you do not want your primary keyword to show up more than one or two times in each paragraph, depending on their length.

 

  1. Break up text using subheadings Use secondary keywords in your subheadings. These will be position between paragraphs. Not every paragraph needs them, but sections of the article can divide this way for easy reading benefits and keyword boosts.

 

  1. Use keywords in the HTML for your website too This includes using them in each individual blog post/article that you post. This also helps with page ranking.

 

Combination of keywords.

Use a combination of keywords in each of your articles, but do not put too many into them. If that sounds confusing, it is because there is no hard and fast rule. What you want to do is to divide up the pages on your website or in your blog posts so that over the course of all of the pages, you use all the keywords you would like to use.

 

Do not try to put all your keywords for your website into every article you write. It will not work and will deflate the quality of each page considerably. For example, one blog post may include the keyword “dining table”; in that article, words like “dining room table” and “square table” may include but not many more than that.

 

 

What is 'keywords density' in ASO (App Store optimization)? - Quora

 

 

Keyword Density –

 

Keyword density is the number of keywords on any one page in comparison to the number of words on this page. A few years back, it was common for the “less than expert” Internet marketers to try and work in high keyword density numbers. More keywords sounded horrible, but many thought that this would boost their search engine results pages significantly.

 

The problem is that this does not work. It hurts your page ranking and causes you to have awkward-sounding content on your website. Content is king, though, remember, and therefore, you need to make changes to this significantly.

 

The question is, then, how much density should you go for? This is up to you to decide since each page will be different, but most experts agree that you want a density that is under 5 percent. In most cases, only 2 to 3 percent of keyword density is best.

 

To compute keyword density, you simply need to take the number of times that the keyword appears in the page’s text and divide that by the number of words on the page.

 

For example, if the word “dining table” appears 8 times in our 400-word blog post, you would divide 8 by 400 words and get 0.02 or 2 percent. Do take the time to do this for your articles. You do want to ensure that there are plenty of keywords but not too many.

 

If you would rather not waste your time on calculating density, there are free and paid software programs available online that will calculate the density for you. These are helpful when they are accurate. You do not have to be 100 percent accurate here.

 

 

Keep in Mind –

 

Quality content is vitally important to the success of your website. Write your content to be quality content first.

 

Go back and insert keywords as they fit into the content you have written.

 

Do base topics and blog posts around keywords that are important. For example, choose a top ten list of tips for repairing dining room tables… this makes keyword usage easier and more effective. Plus, the reader gets it.

 

Do not obsess about keywords. You do not have to have a lot of them on the website to see results. Choose a good mix and include them in each article, but only as they fit with your topic appropriately.

 

Finally, take the time to stay up to date on the changes that search engine companies make to their methods. This will ultimately enable your website to grow and stretch as the times change. It is very rare that you must redo the entire site. Plus, if you do not want to do the work of all this “fixing,” you can hire someone to do it for you.

 

The bottom line is that content is still king, but keywords are sitting right next to content as an equal heir to the throne. If you would like to get full access to some high quality, DONE FOR YOU, content, I will drop a link below.

 

 

Done for You Content.

 

I hope this helps you get a better understanding of how to use keywords in your content and to greatly improve your chances of getting your business seen online.

SEO, boost your e-commerce.

When its viewers come from different regions, it should have standard and/or metric measurements. The images of these products should match the physical items. To make sure their color and size are accurate.

There are sellers who only display the prices of their products. When these are added to the cart of users. Perhaps this is because they either have a special promotion. Or are trying to avail of the minimum pricing of the advertising policy.

However, even if hiding prices do not directly affect SEO, shoppers tend to leave at once, when the product page does not show the pricing details. This can lead to a higher bounce rate, which will be discussed in the following section.

 

 

Design Thinking About Shoppers.

 

A website and product page should be designed. In such a way that will provide a great shopping experience. Granting that businesses offer the best products.

Design is also an essential part of SEO. When search engines discover that a website has an exceptionally high bounce rate. Wherein visitors leave as soon as they land on its web page, the site’s rankings will begin to plummet.

A website that is designed well can lower bounce rates. And let visitors browse several pages even though they do not easily find the information they need or want.

For an eCommerce website to become successful, it should be easy to find. And navigate, have reasonable menus and navigation options. That lets visitors know the information they will see once they click a link.

Images should only be used sparingly because loading them can take time. Which can make shoppers impatient and hit the back button. In this regard, load time is also a ranking factor. Therefore, it is best to have web pages that load fast.

 

 

Do Not Add Cluttered or Complex URLs

 

Visitors can access a webpage. On an online shop by means of an address, which is called URL. This includes a lot of information squeezed into a small space. It can contain product names, category names, types of files, and/or actions. Such as “_blank” to allow users to open a new link in another window

Based on SEO standards, URLs should be possibly clear and easy to read, with keywords that are relevant to the text on the resulting page.

Search engines can obtain many, different pieces of information. From a URL like lawnmowers for sale or offers of green and gas-powered variety. At first glance, users should be able to see what a URL leads to.

When they send the link to others, the recipient will see that the site is about lawnmowers and click to view the products.

A complicated URL such as the first example could confuse people, who would not know where it would lead to.
