Metabolic Typing History And Evolution

By Ben Wilson

The theory took its first steps in the 1920's when a dentist, Dr Weston a Price travelled the world chart the nutrition, health and lifestyle of the different ethnic tribes around the world. He compared the effect of western food compared to their traditional food.

He found that the there was a large variance in types of diet eaten. He saw the Eskimos ate a diet of almost exclusively protein and aft, from seal, fish etc. opposite to this was tribal groups in South America who had an almost meat free diet. The two groups, and many in between these extremes had no cancer, heart disease, mental illness, very little tooth decay and were what could be said to be 'very good health'. When subjected to western foods these groups would succumb to the same degenerative conditions prevalent in the west. He went on to conclude that people had evolved to live off the foods before them through natural succession.

The different and individual nutritional needs were backed up by Dr Roger Williams in the 1950's in his book Biochemical individuality. His work reviewed thousands of medical studies. He found that there was a large variety in almost every measure of the human body from organ size and shape to enzyme and blood concentrations and effectiveness. Through his own studies and in review he showed how vitamin and mineral requirements for individuals varied considerably.
From this he coined the term, the Genotrophic approach to health. This states that if you fulfil your genetically inherited nutritional requirements you will optimize your health.

Biochemical individuality is expressed in the way we look. We all have eyes, ears and a nose yet none of us look identical. This is exactly what happens inside. We all have the same enzymes, organs and structures but they vary greatly in size, shape and efficiency. Hence do not handle the food he same.

The theory then took began to develop with two scientist each creating a system to treat patients. Dr William Kelly used the autonomic nervous system to classify and treat his patients while Dr George Watson used the Speed of oxidizing carbohydrates for his treatment protocols.
Both very effective systems they did not produce complete success and more strangely were complete contradictions off each other. Where one said a nutrient would do this, the other would say it would do the opposite.

This lead to the biggest break thought in nutrition to be made by William Wollcott in 1984. He is the founder of metabolic typing and who trained and allowed me to use his theory today.

The breakthrough was called the dominance factor and stated "In every person either the Autonomic system or oxidation system would influence the behavior of your whole body"
In simple terms the same food could have the complete opposite biochemical affect in two people. So an apple could send my body alkaline, but your body acidic. This means no food can be deemed healthy in its own right but only in relation to your body.

Subsequent to this various different scientific researcher and theories have been included within the theory in a quest for the true solution and bring us to where we are today with metabolic typing being the most complete and powerful nutrition system in the world

Metabolic typing today recognizes 10 systems within your body that need to be balanced for true health to occur. First you need to discover where your ten systems lie at the moment. Then consume the foods and nutrients that seek to balance these while avoiding any nutrients or external causes that will disrupt the systems. Using metabolic typing you can therefore answer the fundamental questions of nutrition: What to eat, how much to eat, what to avoid and all other surrounding issues, e.g. supplements, food quality etc.

Discount Wedding Invitations - Easy Option For Saving Money

By Madonna Jeffries

Every bride and groom want the occasion of their wedding to be an absolutely special and beautiful memory. If you are currently planning your wedding day it is highly likely that you and your partner will be spending a small fortune on getting all the little things right. There are a number of ways that you can be thrifty with your budget and organizing the printing of discount wedding invitations is a perfect place to start.

It is possible to get your discount wedding invitations from a variety of sources and in a number of different ways, however, we will share with you some tried and true options that reduce the risk of getting the wrong invitations or getting them too late. Remember you need to start thinking about the printing of your invitations at least three months prior to when you intend sending them out. The reason you need this fairly long lead-time is as your insurance against anything going wrong.

You have to remember that the printing company you use know that printing the discount wedding invitations is a once off job, so in reality they probably will not treat you as well as a customer for whom they will possibly be doing more work in the future. Bearing this in mind, and not wanting your print job to be put at the bottom of the pile, it is important that you stay in regular contact with the printer. By staying in touch you can get regular updates as to when the job of printing your discount wedding invitations is likely to be finished. The fact that the invitations are being provided at a discount cost does not diminish your rights as a consumer and you should still expect to get what you paid for.

If possible the best way to source discount wedding invitations is to use any connections your family and friends might have with printers. The majority of printers rely on referrals and return business as a major source of income for their businesses. As with any business their philosophy is that if they do a good job for you then the chances are high that you too will recommend them to your own contacts.

Even though you may have been referred to the printer by a family member or friend you should always double check their price for your discount wedding invitations by getting quotes from other print suppliers. Take the time to do this to ensure that you are receiving a true discount.

Another great option is to go online to get source your invitations. To tell you the truth you will be absolutely amazed at the number of printing companies who offer their services through their own website or via eBay. There are just a few things you have to remember when dealing with online print suppliers. '
  1. Stay in constant contact to make sure your order is being done in a timely manner.
  2. Don't rely purely on contact via email - make sure that they have a telephone number so that you can contact them via phone if necessary.
  3. If you decide to proceed with one of the Printers who are advertising their services via eBay, then never do business with anyone who has a bad eBay feedback rating. Usually a rating of below 95% of positive feedbacks should ring alarm bells and you should completely avoid them.
  4. Request a proof copy be emailed to your prior to the commencement of printing.
Always give the discount printer a lot of time in case there are delays in getting you the invitations or, in the worst case scenario, that they make a mistake. If they do make a mistake you want to have enough time for the problem to be rectified. Remember to allow yourself plenty of time and order your discount wedding invitations at least three months prior to sending them out.

How Much Would You Invest In A New Partner?

By Juliet Johnson

A 32-year-old graphic designer from Brisbane recently offered $40,000 to anyone who could find her a life partner.

"I did it as a bit of a joke, but there is a serious side to it," she explained.

"I'm getting older and, to be honest, I'd rather spend my Saturday mornings at open for inspections with a partner than getting over another Friday night with all the other singles from work."

Her proposition seems to stack up financially too. Studies around the world show that marriage makes you richer, not to mention happier and healthier (and having a long term partner also means you're more likely to live long enough to qualify for a birthday card from the Queen).

One study found that workers who are married earn between 10% and 20% more than singles.
And they can split plenty of big ticket costs with their partner like a mortgage and the latest 33 inch plasma TV too.

It's easy to sympathise with Sex and the City's Carrie, who indignantly presented her smug married friend with a compensation claim for the thousands of dollars she'd spent on the engagement present, the wedding, the baby showers and all of her friend's other major life events.

Forget for a moment that a long term partner can lead to long term financial commitments - like children, a bigger house and a massive car - and marriage seems to stack up.

If a financial planner came and offered you a return of hundreds of thousands of dollars - and a few bonus years on earth - in return for an investment of just $40,000, wouldn't you be crazy not to sign up?

"It just seems a bit too crass and desperate to me," said Toby, a self-confessed romantic (who nevertheless joined an introduction agency in a bid to find a new partner).

But is it really such a radical idea? After all, in many cultures there is nothing wrong with offering a dowry to your unmarried daughter's prospective new family.

And women (and increasingly men) can spend thousands in just a few years of dating on the obligatory waxing and primping - not to mention hundreds of nights at pricey singles bars - in their quest to find a partner.

In an increasingly rushed world, why not just cut to the chase?

Does the Peacock Always Get the Girl?

By Juliet Johnson

So how much of your look contributes to your partners interest? Can you sway the dating game by a bit of hair dye and excessive accessories? How far will you push eyeliner to catch the date of your dreams?

But peacocking - as it's been dubbed by Mystery, the controversial host of the US reality TV show The Pick Up Artist - is spreading to the mere mortals in the male population.

Mystery, who has bright red lips tattooed on his neck, heavy black kohl, flouncy white shirts and old-style aviation goggles, explains his look as a way of seducing and ultimately, sleeping with the women he dates.

On his show, Mystery schools bookish, date-less blokes in the art of picking up - starting with dyeing their hair and dressing them in fur jackets and floppy Great Gatsby hats.

The Queer Eye for the Straight Guy team gave a light spit and polish - usually involving a bottle of moisturiser - to men who were looking either to impress on a first date or revive a flagging relationship. Mystery, on the other hand, is all about helping his protégés bed women on the first date.

'It's a mating jungle out there' is his message, and the only way to win is to don plumage brighter and crazier than all the others.

But does it really work? Not surprisingly, peacocking has its fair share of critics,
"If you're not congruent with your look, what you wear will signal insecurity and a need for attention/validation, which will make women avoid you like the plague," says one male blogger on

"Nothing's worse than getting a girl and then having her wonder why you have so many articles of female clothing in your closet," he adds.

Amy, a 24-year-old flight attendant, said that while a peacock might be the first man to catch her eye at a party - and she wouldn't rule out sleeping with one - ultimately the idea of fighting over the bathroom mirror or her make-up bag didn't turn her on.

Xanthe, a 29-year-old chef, said: "My first serious date wore black nail polish, eyeliner and a Mohawk. He was masculine in every other way, but it was the combination of his muscular body and deep sexy voice with those feminine touches that made him irresistible to me. Now when I date someone I do wonder if they're the kind of guy I can picture myself walking down the aisle with. Or pushing a baby stroller without worrying about chipping their nail polish."

So go for it guys. If you're a rock star, a Peter Pan, or if you're just after a casual date or a one-night stand, then feather up. But if it's a lasting relationship you're after, hold off on the eye shadow and leave the lip gloss to the girls.

Meat Eaters Versus Vegetarians

By Julie Eden

The first humans populating the Earth ate a diet of fresh fruit and vegetables according to the Old Testament. Humans had neither fangs nor claws to kill, nor the swiftness to catch animals.
According to Dr. Josiah Oldfield writes;

"Today there is Scientific fact assured - Man belongs not to flesh eaters, but to the fruit and vegetable greens, sprouts and seed eaters."

Take a look at Dr. Josiah Oldfields web site:

It is a known fact that eating flesh of dead animals is hard to digest and some of it rots in the gut before elimination can take place and this putrefying residue is absorbed into the blood stream and it poisons the entire system.

Flesh eating animals have a much shorter colon for faster elimination where as humans do not. In humans some of the putrefying residue in the gut causes premature aging, fatigue, toxicity and worms feasting on this waste. The cells of the body must be supplied with the proper nourishment to efficiently eliminate this waste and when something blocks this process, the cells and organs deteriorate and die.

By the time meat eaters reach the age of 50 years they will have accumulated a lot of undigested meat rotting in their gut.

Some human beings- inflict pain on one another, eat their own kind, murders, abuses its offspring and subjects cruelty towards their fellow creatures. Can you tell me what animal does all this, to its own kind or that of others?

Is this type of behaviour in humans influenced by a diet of eating meat? Does it play a role in brain degeneration, insanity, aggresiveness, and general health problems?

I have met groups of Vegetarians and have noticed that they do not display this form of behaviour, they are easier to get along with, well balanced, harmonious with their family and friends.

As meat eaters, how can you, on one hand, support against the slaughter of whales, dolphins, seals and all the other oceans creatures when you support eating meat regardless of whether it swims, flies, or walks. Your against eating Dog or Cat, but support eating Cows, Chickens, Fish, Rabbits and Sheep, these animals are all living entities and have as much right to be here as we have.

Meat eating was never intended to play a part in human nutrition. It is considered barbaric that the humans who still enjoy eating meat have no idea on the pain and suffering inflicted on these animals.

Windows XP Registry Problems - How To Deal

By Cynthia Blake

Windows XP registry problems can be annoying and difficult to deal with. There are several causes for registry errors. A few of the most common ones are:
  • Slow Bootups
  • Sluggish Performance
  • Frequent Error Messages (runtime, .dll, activex, etc)
  • Freezes
  • Crashes
The Blue Screen Of Death
If you're having any of those problems, you likely have errors in the Windows XP registry.

Fortunately there is an incredibly fast and easy way to fix these problems and get your computer running like new again.

What Is The Windows XP Registry?
The registry is like the central nervous system of your computer. It is filled with highly important files that store the preferences and settings of software and hardware. Windows reads these files constantly as you use your computer so it knows how to run your programs and hardware correctly.

All these files are stored in folders called HKEY hives. It can get extremely complicated, and it is not recommended that you try to tinker with the registry by hand.

How Does The Registry Get Damaged?
Since it's made up of regular files and folders, the registry is vulnerable to lots of things. Viruses and spyware are often the culprit of damaged registry keys, since they can cause corruption and remove important entries.

Another extremely common cause of problems is the incomplete uninstallation of hardware and software. When you uninstall a program, very often the uninstaller will leave behind remnants in the registry. This can cause problems, especially if this happens a lot.

Since Windows needs to read the registry in order to run properly, corrupted and orphaned entries begin to impede access to the "good" entries.

What's The Best Way To Fix Windows XP Registry Problems?
The best way to fix these problems is to use a professional registry cleaner. These software programs are incredibly easy to run and very cost effective. They will save you a trip to the repair technician, and get your PC running like new again.

Most of these software programs offer a free download and scan so you can determine if you have critical errors in your computer.

Postcard Printing Need Not Be Expensive

By Lynne A Saarte

I know. This has always been the problem when you are in business, especially if you're a small one at that. Budget. Finances. Resources. Call them in any other name you want, you still have a limited amount to consider when doing your marketing campaign. You're probably thinking how the hell you'd be able to stretch your money to accommodate the best marketing strategy ever to grow your business.

But here's the trick. Even with a very limited budget, you can always have marketing tools that can work to accomplish your goals. With a constricting financial resource, you can have successful promotional materials that can help you generate leads and increase your sales to what you have imagined it to be.

Postcards. The solution is to use postcard marketing campaign so you can stretch your dollars and still effectively promote your business.

So you have this much budget and this much time. A postcard printing campaign would help you cut your costs by getting an almost free service where you can put the addresses in, and still automate the mailing process.

Even if you can finish off your list yourself, you know the process is too tedious that you wouldn't want to go back there and write the addresses and then lick each envelope again. And to think that you have to do this every single time you do your postcard marketing campaign. Because even if you dread it, you know you have to do it several times before you'll be able to get the response to your ads. If only someone, somebody or even something can do your mailing for you and you just have to sit back and wait for your postcards to go out on time, that would be heaven!

Well there is a way. You just work on what is already out there to manage your time effectively and maintain your costs according to the budget you have.

First of all, you need to have an efficient system that can automatically operate without you. Yes, there is such a system. And the US Postal Service can do it for you. In fact, the system has been in operation ever since. With the advent of digital technology, it became even more efficient because you don't even have to go out to do your mailing. There's a mailing online site where you can save your postcard file and mailing list. From there, you can now do your mailing tasks every time you need to.

Second and last, you finally just have to sit back and relax. Because when it's time for you to do your postcard marketing campaign again, you don't need to worry as you can do it online every time.

Lynne Saarte is a writer that hails from Texas. She has been in the Internet business for some years now, specializing in Internet marketing and other online business strategies.

How To Pick The Best Coffee Maker For Your Needs

By Alice Morgan

Nearly every coffee lover would like to have the best coffee maker in their own home and office. For the serious coffee lover, even the RV must have a perfect machine. But different machines fit different people and different locations. For those interested in aesthetics, nearly any finish, color, and style of a machine can be found.

More pragmatic variations exist in coffee machines. You can get automatic coffee machines, espresso, French presses, vacuum, drip, pods, and stove top types. Additionally, nearly all of these machines can specialize in producing hot or cold brewed coffee. Many of these machines also do the coffee grinding for you.

There are hundreds of companies that have their brands on at least one type of machine. Among the most common types of makers are Sunbeam, Senseo, Saeco, Breville, Delonghi, and Jura.
In addition to coming in a variety of colors, these machines can be made of a variety of materials. Plastic, stainless steal, and glass are the most common materials composing coffee machines. The main material to be aware of is shatterproof glass. You want your carafe to be shatterproof glass.

If you have a giant kitchen or a large office coffee room, you will want to get a commercial type that can make twenty or more cups of coffee at one time. Many of these commercial machines will also include some very nice extra features such as a thermostat, warming plate, filter, timer, and frothing system. As you might guess, a machine with most of these features can be quite expensive. The main thing to remember is that the price can be adjusted downward by doing without various features. Some have found the price reasonable enough to buy one of these models for the home.

Which brings us to the closing concept of shopping within your budget among your options. If the machine doesn't make the kind of coffee you drink the most, you probably don't want to spend much money on it. For example, if you mostly drink cappuccino, how often will you really use the machine instead of an instant cappuccino or going to the coffee shop for cappuccino? Save up and shop for a good cappuccino maker in this case as you'll be much happier with it. You should always shop around until you can find the best coffee maker that makes the perfect coffee for you within your budget.

Are you looking for the Best Coffee Maker? Are you confused with what to look for? Read this article to find out more about choosing a coffee maker that is best for you:

Learn Spanish Free Online

By Kevin McNally

Why studying online is a great way to learn Spanish?

There are many reasons as to why studying online is a great way to learn Spanish. Probably one of the best reasons is that there are plenty of websites around which offer people to learn Spanish free online.

By being able to learn Spanish free online this gives people a chance to take part in interactive lessons which will really teach them how to speak Spanish. Certainly many of the free courses now available online can be both fun and easy to use. There are specific courses which are available to those who are complete novices where the Spanish language is concerned and there are courses for those who are looking for something a little more intensive.

However, when looking for a free online Spanish course it is important to look at the quality and quantity of the material that they providing to you. In some cases the course that you may be taking will need your internet to have a browser facility which allows you to read the language that you are learning.

For some people they find that the easiest way of learning Spanish online is by listening and they believe that once they have learnt enough Spanish then they will be able to try beginning to speak it. However, unfortunately learning Spanish online in this way does not work for everybody.

What you also need to accept is that the grammar of the Spanish language is completely different from that found in the English language. So it is important that you focus on the objective of the language as then you will find it much more easier to communicate effectively when using it.
Therefore it is necessary that you should understand each and every grammatical facet of the Spanish language and certainly by taking a free online Spanish course you should be able to achieve this.

Probably one of the biggest reasons as to why more and more people learn Spanish free online is that it allows them to study when they want and at their own pace. Many people are using this method for learning Spanish as it means that they work their course around their own schedules.
No longer do you need to organize your life around attending a school or meeting up with a private tutor at specific times or days in order to have your lessons. In fact with free online Spanish lessons you could actually be doing it anywhere, for example you can be doing it whilst waiting to see the doctor all you need to do is download the lesson on to your MP3 player and you are away.

Proper Linking Startegies Boosts Your Page Rank

By Chronis Tsemplis

Major search engines, including Google, AOL, MSN and Yahoo!, will look at both the number of pages linking to your site and the quality of those pages to determine your site's relevancy.

Having good quality and quantity of links going to your site will drive the search engines to spider your site and also help improve your rankings for keyword phrases. Therefore, one of the most important things you can work on to gain higher rankings in the search engines is your site's own "link popularity".

Link Popularity is necessary for any website to do well in the search engines. Building links requires experience, motivation, a lot of communication, and a lot of work. The best linking strategy you could possibly have for your website's quality of incoming traffic and your search engine rankings is to seek out solid, permanent links on related pages.

This is known as reciprocal linking or "link exchange."

You agree to link to another site, in exchange for them linking to you. As a strategy for increasing the quantity of sites linking to you, it is very popular. You may be contacted by other sites if you have your email address posted somewhere on your site. Or, you can go out on the Web yourself and find some sites to trade links with.

First, create a custom HTML page for linking, and link to it from your site's homepage.

Key facts to consider:

1)A quality link from a high-ranking site will benefit your site more than a large amount of links from only low ranking sites.

2)Links from site to site should be text-based (not images) using one of your main targeted keyword phrases.

3) Link popularity is not effective when used single-handedly as a marketing technique. You will need to work significantly on your site's text content and researching keyword phrases. Remember to develop and use targeted, popular keyword phrases throughout the text on your site, or have it professionally optimized.

Second, decide what keyword phrases you will use for the links pointing to your site. Links should always be keyword rich text, so use your best performing search terms according to what is getting the most searches in the major engines. You can use our keyword suggestion tool to discover which keyword phrases are getting high traffic.

Third, contact other site owners to discuss trading links. Because you have already established a relationship and rapport with certain people, they will be more inclined to want to link to your site. This will become reciprocal linking if you propose to list a text link to their site if they will in turn list a text link to yours.

Procedure of link building

(1.) Reciprocal Link Exchange = In this case we have to submit our site URL in the appropriate site in the submission page mentioned and In exchange we must have to put the Site's URL in any of our Site page.

Some time we have to submit the URL according to PR of the respective site. If we are submitting their URL in PR-4 page of our site then it's necessary that they should also put our URL in PR-4 page.

(2.)1-Way Link Exchange = There are some sites which are providing the facility to submit our URL but in exchange they do not need any Link to be submitted in exchange.

(3.) 3-way Link Exchange = This way of Link Exchange is little bit different from Reciprocal Exchange. In this category we have to submit the URL of a site in any of our PR page and in exchange to this the Site Owner will include our URL in any 3rd Domain .

The 7 Things You Can Do to Grab Life's Joystick - You Don't Have to Be Miserable!

By Jackie Lapin

Good news! You didn't come into this life to be miserable! That's something I've told people most of my life -- something I knew innately. But while researching my book, The Art of Conscious Creation, How You Can Transform the World, my beliefs were reinforced.

Great spiritual leaders of the New Age believe we arrive on Earth in a state of joy, and then proceed to screw it up. Our souls are blissful -- looking to love and enjoy our lives and everything that we attract to us. The Universe is constructed to confer to us all we desire; to "download" goodwill, happiness and peace upon us.

So why do so many people insist on wallowing in misery? It's because they can't believe their good fortune, refuse to trust, doubt themselves, let egos get in the way, deny reality, and ultimately sink into negative thinking. The Law of Attraction supports the reasoning that negative thoughts attract those things that reinforce unhappiness.

We can choose to not be miserable! Just Grab Life's Joystick and Consciously Create happiness and bliss! Quantum physics has validated the belief that thoughts and emotions are energies capable of changing reality. Create positive, joyful thoughts and emotions; you'll bring to the world happy and wonderful experiences.

So how do you Grab Life's Joystick?

1. Think positively. If a wave of negativity comes over you, consciously rearrange the thought to something optimistic and hopeful. When you do this, be confident that your words will generate a happy, positive outcome.

2. List the things you want to come your way. Cut from magazines the pictures that emulate your desires. Put those photos in a special box, with words on the cover that state: "Thank you for granting me these wonderful things." Then trust that the Universe is working to bring you these wishes.

3. Spend time envisioning what you want from life and how life should be. This scene you envision, put yourself in it. Feel the real joy, wonderment and excitement of being there. Taste the scene, smell it, observe the details. This should hasten your vision's arrival!

4. Don't think less of yourself. Love yourself, pat yourself on the back, and pamper yourself more. Focus on your strengths, not your shortcomings. Enjoy who you are. Allow yourself to be proud of what you've accomplished.

5. Do one thing wonderful each day. Indulge in a favorite book or ice cream cone. Exercise until the endorphins spring forth! Hike with friends or take your dog to a park. Cuddle your children and read to them. Etc ....

6. Be nice and help someone -- or someones -- in need. Lend a hand to somebody. Put a smile on your face and light up a room. Give a kind word to a person who doesn't receive a lot of recognition for their good work.

7. Go into nature. Feel the energy that comes from being outdoors. Swim in a lake, walk on a beach, rest under a tree, smell the daisies, feel the wind, roll in the grass. The act of sopping up nature's positive energy always raises a person's energy and outlook.

These are just a few ways you can start living a cheery, fulfilled existence. It only takes the commitment to start Consciously Creating. Take responsibility for your own bliss! Don't look to anyone or anything to manifest joy for you. You can open the door and invite joy into your life. Grab Life's Joystick!

Three Ways to Lose Post Pregnancy Weight - Post Pregnancy Weight Loss

By Ivonna Boss

There are few things you can do! Here are some basic ways you can try to lose post pregnancy weight. It comes down to nursing, diet change and exercising. The best off all, without starving diets!

The first one is the easiest one. If you are nursing, the pounds should be coming off as long as you are eating healthy. Avoid junk food and you should be o.k. On average women can lose from a pound to four per month just with breast feeding. If you add light exercise to that, it may be even faster. However, if you are nursing and making any extreme changes to your diet, you should really discuss this with your Dr. and baby pediatrician. Both you and the baby have to get enough nutrition.

If you have stopped nursing, then changes in your diet are a must. During our pregnancy if we had a sweet tooth, we filled it. That actually has to stop. I love chocolate, but sugar is really the worse food to eat if you are hoping to lose weight. Replacing your sweet tooth with fruit and vegetables will actually help your body recover faster, and you will have more energy.

When it comes to exercise. After your pregnancy you have to start slowly with your exercise.
The reason is that your body is still recovering. I personally have hurt my joints starting out too fast. I really wanted to lose that post pregnancy weight, but it did take nine months to gain it, so we have to take it easy. As a mom, finding time to exercise is hard, but possible. Try going for a walk with your little one, or just dancing in your living room. Kids do get kick out of it, and you do burn your calories and fat.

However, if you have tried and was unable to lose pregnancy weight with any of these, and are still struggling, you can try carb rotation diet. I managed to lose 20 pounds without any diet, but I had to stop nursing and I could not lose any more. I was really getting depressed and than I came across carb rotation diet. It really thought me a lot about nutrition, what food to eat that burns more calories and which food to avoid at all times.

Losing post pregnancy weight is difficult, but it is doable! Do not go on starving diets because most likely you will gain the weight back.

Lose Weight for the Last Time

By Jessica Bergkvist

You can cut calories and lose weight. It is simple take in less calories than your body burns and that equals weight loss. Add exercise and the results are even better. So why does it seem so hard to lose weight and keep it off? Why is it that the diet industry brings in BILLIONS of dollars per year, and about 95% is repeat business?

Answer: Diets simply don't work. If they did, you would never have to diet again. Sensible eating habits and exercise DO work, so why doesn't everyone who wants to lose weight just eat right and exercise?

The answer to that question may be found in how you think. When you picture your body, what do you see? Do you see a naturally thin person who is getting better everyday? Or do you see "fat?" When you think of your body, what thoughts come up most often? Do you think more thoughts of having the healthy, lean body you want, or do you think mostly of what you don't want?

Your body cannot do anything without your brain telling it what to do. What the mind sees and thinks, the body tends to follow. If you constantly think about and picture yourself being "fat," then your body automatically does what it is told, so chances are that you will have a difficult time losing weight and keeping it off. If you train yourself to think of and imagine yourself the way you want to be, chances are that your body will follow those directions and help you to create new habits that will allow you to lose weight and keep it off.

If you want to lose weight and you imagine yourself as fit, lean, and healthy, it helps to subconsciously and automatically motivate you toward that goal. If you imagine yourself as fat, you actually become motivated toward exactly what you do not want.

So just how do you change what may be a lifetime of "fat thinking?" First, it takes awareness and practice. Awareness of your thoughts and then practicing replacing them with new, healthier thoughts. Sounds easy enough, right? Not always. The subconscious (or unconscious) mind contains these "programs" of old thinking and behaviors...and remember, these took years to create, so simply trying to think different thoughts may not be enough to create the change you want.

Using hypnosis, you can communicate directly with the subconscious mind and "reprogram" old thinking and behaviors into new, permanent, positive thoughts, images, and actions that will help you lose the weight and keep it off for good.

Fast World Of Warcraft Gold - Grinding & Chinese Farmer Tips

By Calvin Loh

Here are two sets of tips to help you make fast World Of Warcraft gold:

A) Grinding tips

Here are some rules of thumb to help you factor the risk to reward ratio when grinding to make some fast gold:

1) If the mobs die easily, they are worth grinding.
2) If they drop money, they are worth grinding.
3) If they have good stackable vendor fodder, they are worth grinding.
4) If they have good world drops, they are worth grinding.

If they are hard to kill, don't waste your time.

The starter zones seem to be good places where you can just skin corpses over and over without ever having to kill anything yourself. One of the best places in the Alliance is Elwyn Forest (one of the human starter zones). Most people who go to the farms for quests will butcher a few pigs on their way through. So there are always boar corpses abandoned on the ground, just waiting for you to skin them.

B) Profiting from the chinese farmers' shift changes

1) These are the typical times the chinese gold farmers change shifts (server time) - 6 AM, 6 PM, 4:30 AM, 4:30 PM
2) About half-an-hour before shift change, monitor the IF trade channel. Take note of items you are interested in. You did check the AH for high-selling items, right?
3) About 10 or 15 minutes before shift change, whisper to the sellers with a lower offer. If they reject it, whisper again 1 or 2 minutes before shift change. They'll probably accept it now.
4) Resell the stuff you bought at the AH and make a tidy profit.

A good World of Warcraft gold guide (like Luke Brown's or Derek Bleacher's) will teach you the fastest ways to make gold in World Of Warcraft. If you are a typical part-time player, being able to quickly make gold in World of Warcraft will let you enjoy the game more. You will be able to buy more powerful equipment, which will let you defeat stronger enemies and complete harder quests.

I am a part-time gamer who needs to schedule my playing time around real-life activities. I am always looking for better ways to have more fun in less time. Look for some of the tactics and strategies I have collected in my blog Fast World Of Warcraft Gold and squidoo lens.

Dating Again After A Partner Dies

By Elaine Williams

When a relationship ends due to one partner dying, what is the correct time period to begin dating again? Grief is such a funny, unpredictable animal. Many people in years' past think a year is a suitable time to wait before incorporating life changes, and yet for many of us, a year into our loss - we're barely getting started on our grief journey. My experience has been that people and perhaps society as a whole, do not allow enough time or thought to the actual grief process. There is no quick fix or "getting over it" and moving on. We all move through grief in our own ways and means. There is nothing by formula that we can follow or hope to happen.
Talking with others who have experienced a similar loss is definitely a plus.

Some days the road is more difficult than others days. At times, you feel enveloped in a mist of uncertainty. Even small decisions can sometimes stretch past your point of coping.

Personal decisions are just that, personal. What is suitable for anyone must be decided individually. Sometimes you have to let go of preconceived notions of the correct way to act and grieve.

I began dating too early, about a year after my husband passed away. I was incredibly lonely and in a real oxymoron, I was determined to be happy again, at any cost to myself. So, I started dating through online sites and I kept attracting the wrong type of man. Takers, emotionally unavailable, surface daters, serial daters, men who mirrored my own uncertainty about my readiness to date again.

None of these connections turned out to be anything substantial. In a fog of grief, I yearned to find someone to love, and yet I knew these men were wrong for me. They were just a short ride on a ferry to nowhere special. It was brought home to me gradually, through my dating experiences, that I had to value myself more than what I was doing. I couldn't settle with a partner just to have someone in my life. I deserved more. My dates deserved more than someone still traveling through grief.

In those early days, I was as unavailable as the men I dated. If I had realized this, perhaps I would have run fast in the opposite direction, but in two instances I hung on to a flagging relationship, hoping things would change. Of course they did not.

Gradually, I came to realize that I had to stop setting myself up for disappointment in relationships. How could I attract the right partner, unless I was equally ready for a commitment?

I made the decision to bring my standards up to a new level and part of this process involved not dating for over a year. Only then did I start meeting the quality of man that my higher consciousness demanded. I was no longer wasting my time, or theirs, in surface dating, where both of us knows after one date there is no chemistry or real interest.

We all deserve better for ourselves than settling in a relationship just to alleviate the loneliness. It is difficult being alone when you are used to so much more, but I have chosen to remain so until the right partner comes along. It's a personal decision and for me, there is no other choice.
