Top 10 recommended work outs To Lose Weight At Home

Weight loss can be attained with a full-body exercise routine. You can shed your extra pounds by burning the excess calories that you consumed. Going to a gym to workout is a very good option to attain weight loss. But many people cannot afford all the fancy equipment of the gyms. Many body-weight exercises don’t require any gym equipment. These exercises that can be done anywhere and anytime, they are pushups, squats and many other moves that use your body weight. 

Top 10 Home Exercises To Lose Weight Quickly
These body weight exercises also help you in burning calories, building muscle and also help in boosting your metabolism. Though, sometimes using body weight alone to exercise can bring in stress instead of strength.

Generally a full body workout involves pushups, planks, leaps, squats, lunges and glute bridges.

1. Push-Ups:


Push-up is a basic exercise that is done by simply raising and lowering the body with the support of the arms.  Triceps pushups are done by placing your hands on the floor right below your shoulders, while holding your body straight.  Now lower your chest by bending your elbows and pushing back into the initial position. If you feel this exercise difficult, you can make it easier by placing your knees on the floor. This exercise trains the muscles of chest, shoulders and arms.

2. Bridge:


Bridge exercise usually strengthens the whole abdominal region, hamstrings, the lower back and the glutes. It is considered as the basic rehab exercise that improves spinal stabilization. Lie down on your back by putting your arms by your sides. Now bend your knees and raise your hips while maintain your back straight and keeping your feet on the floor. Let the hips be in a straight line with your shoulders and knees. Hold it there for 30 seconds and gently lower your hips back to the initial position and repeat the same for several minutes.

3. Leaps:


Leaps / skaters are leg strengthening exercises. This is a great exercise for sports persons, which improve speed and grace. In order to do perfect leaps, get into a semi-squat position and jump sideways and then land on your right foot. Repeat the same process in the opposite direction, now land on your left foot. You can perform these leaps regularly to strengthen your legs.

4. Plank Crawl:


One of the best plank variations involves crawling. This exercise routine helps you tone your abs, back, and shoulders. Crawls are designed to use the upper and lower body in unison. To do a plank crawl you need to get in a pushup position, then lowering yourself down into the plank position by balancing on your forearms, elbows and toes. Now balance on one arm the come back to your initial push-up position, repeat the process by alternating the arm. You have to maintain a straight body during the exercise routine. Plank is commonly practiced in Pilates and yoga. You can decrease the difficulty level by lowering your knees to the floor.

5. Squats:


Squats are really great exercises for your buttocks and legs. Squat is a position in which you couch or sit with knees bent close to the heels with your thighs parallel to the floor. It is a full body work out that primarily targets hips, thighs and buttocks. If you find this exercise routine difficult then try the same sitting on a chair and standing up, now repeat this process a number of times to tone your body and provide some benefit to it.

6. Walking Lunges:


Walking Lunges are very high intensity exercises that help in strengthening thighs and hips. Stand tall with your feet shoulder-width apart. Now step forward with your right foot the land on your left knee and then on forefoot. Make sure that you keep your knees at 90 degrees approximately. Stand on forward leg with the help of rear leg. Alter the leg and repeat it again. This exercise can be done by holding a pair of dumbbells in both your hands.

7. Single Leg Balance:


This is one of the hardcore exercises that targets leg power. The first thing you need to do in this exercise is to balance on your left leg and lean forward at the waist by keeping your body straight. Now extend your right leg towards the ceiling. You should maintain a slight bend in your left knee. Then raise your upper body to the initial position. Repeat it a few times for a better workout. If you found this balancing difficult, hold your back leg for support initially.

8. Superman Back Extension:


This exercise will help you increase the strength of the muscles along the lower back and gluteus.  In order to perform this exercise, Lie on your stomach and gently raise your legs and upper body at the same time. Always keep your head straight in this position. Hold it there for 2 - 3 seconds and repeat it for 10 – 12 times daily to increase your leg power.

9. Bird Dog:


Bird-dog is an excellent exercise to stabilize the lower back (spine) during extremity movement. It works on abs, back, hips and butt. Begin with a hands and knees position (downward dog) with your fingers pointing forward. Make sure that your hands are under your shoulders and knees are under your hips. Slowly stretch your opposite leg and arm almost parallel to the floor. Hold your balance for a few seconds without arching or sagging your back. Return to the initial position slowly and repeat the same alternating sides.

10. Side Plank Hip Drops:


Side plank is the best exercise that helps you build core strength. This exercise primarily targets on arms, legs and back. Begin this exercise routine by lying on one side with your elbow lined directly under your shoulder. Lift your hips off the floor by supporting your body with your forearm and keeping your feet stacked on top of one another on the floor. Hold your torso steady for 3 -5 seconds and then slowly lower your hips onto the floor repeat the same process by switching sides.

Why You Should Drink Warm Water & Lemon

1. Boosts you're immune system

Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain & nerve function and helps control blood pressure.

2. Balances pH

Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food, believe it or not. Yes, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they're alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized). As you wellness warriors know, an alkaline body is really the key to good health.

3. Helps with weight loss

Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster. And, my experience is that when I start the day off right, it's easier to make the best choices for myself the rest of the day.

4. Aids digestion

The warm water serves to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis—thewaves of muscle contractions within the intestinal walls that keep things moving. Lemons and limes are also high in minerals and vitamins and help loosen ama, or toxins, in the digestive tract.

5. Acts as a gentle, natural diuretic

Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

6. Clears skin

The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well.

7. Hydrates the lymph system

This cup of goodness helps start the day on a hydrated note, which helps prevent dehydration (obviously) and adrenal fatigue. When your body is dehydrated, or deeply dehydrated (adrenal fatigue) it can't perform all of it's proper functions, which leads to toxic buildup, stress, constipation, and the list goes on. Your adrenals happen to be two small glands that sit on top of your kidneys, and along with your thyroid, create energy. They also secrete important hormones, including aldosterone. Aldosterone is a hormone secreted by your adrenals that regulates water levels and the concentration of minerals, like sodium, in your body, helping you stay hydrated. Your adrenals are also responsible for regulating your stress response. So, the bottom line is that you really don't want to mess with a deep state of dehydration!

Taiwan Reports First Bird Flu Case Outside China

Taiwan Reports First Bird Flu Case Outside China

Taiwan has reported the first H7N9 bird flu case outside of mainland China. A 53-year-old businessman is in serious condition in the hospital.
The man recently returned from the Chinese city of Suzhou, according to health officials. China already has 108 confirmed cases of the new bird flu strain since it appeared in March.
The Taiwanese man was taken to the hospital three days after he arrived in the country from Suzhou via Shanghai. The country’s Health Minister Chiu Wen-ta assured that the ill man was not in contact with any poultry and did not eat any undercooked birds while in China.
The first bird flu case outside China is likely worrying to experts, who are still trying to learn more about the deadly H7N9 strain. The World Health Organization (WHO) has already said that the new strain appears to spread more easily from birds to humans than it does from human to human contact.
WHO flu expert Dr. Keji Fukuda stated at a news conference in Beijing, where new cases were reported last week, “This is definitely one of the most lethal influenza viruses we have seen so far. When we look at influenza viruses this is an unusually dangerous virus.”
Fukuda added that the WHO team has just started its investigation into how the H7N9 virus made the jump from birds to humans. He added that, based on the evidence, “this virus is more easily transmissible from poultry to humans than H5N1.” H5N1 is the previous strain spread in 2003.

Since the H5N1 strain was discovered 10 years ago, it has killed 360 people worldwide. Most of those who died came into contact with infected birds.
WHO officials added that they are continuing to monitor the new virus strain closely to see if it could spark a global pandemic. However, there is little evidence so far that it could spread easily between humans. Of the now 103 confirmed bird flu cases, 22 people have died.

Health Tips:Ten Tips To Help You Control Your High Blood Pressure

1. Make sure your blood pressure is under 140/90 mm Hg. If your systolic pressure (the top number) is over 140, ask your doctor what you can do to lower it.

2. Take your high blood pressure medicine, if prescribed, every day. If you have questions, talk to your doctor.

3. Aim for a healthy weight. If you are overweight or obese, carrying this extra weight increases your risk of high blood pressure. One way to determine if you need to lose weight is to find out your body mass index or BMI. If your BMI is above the healthy range (i.e., 25 or greater), or if your waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (women) or 40 inches (men) you probably have excess abdominal weight and you may benefit from weight loss especially if you have other risk factors. Talk to your doctor to see if you are at increased risk for high blood pressure and need to lose weight.

4. Increase your physical activity. Do at least 30 minutes of moderate activity, such as walking, most days of the week. You can do 30 minutes in three 10-minute segments.

5. Choose foods low in salt and sodium. Most Americans should consume no more than 2.4 grams (2,400 milligrams) of sodium a day. That equals 6 grams, about one teaspoon of table salt a day. For someone with high blood pressure, the doctor may advise less.

6. Read nutrition labels. Almost all packaged foods contain sodium. Every time you prepare or eat a packaged food, know how much sodium is in one serving.

7. Keep a sodium diary. You may be surprised at how much sodium you consume each day and the diary will help you decide which foods to decrease or eliminate.

8. Use spices and herbs instead of salt to season the food you prepare at home.

9. Eat more fruits, vegetables, grains, and low-fat dairy foods.

10. If you consume alcohol at all, consume moderate amount or restrict.

Improve your look:5 steps to supermodel skin

Get a flawless complexion

While most of us can only dream of having a supermodel figure, it is possible to get their flawless, glowing complexion by following their top beauty secrets. Here are five simple tricks to make sure your skin is ready for its close up.


Freshen up

American fashion model Karlie Kloss has revealed that she likes misting her face with rose water in the morning due to its refreshing and moisturising qualities. Rose water, which is created through the distillation of rose petals and water, is a natural and sweet-smelling beauty product that is great for freshening up skin throughout the day and which can also be used as a toner for dry skin types. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, so is great for reducing redness and soothing irritated skin.
Those with oily skins can also benefit from using a face mist to freshen up their skin throughout the day. Lavender water is particularly good for those with oily or acne-prone complexions. You could even try making your own face mist using purified water and essential oils. This can be stored in the fridge and used to tone and freshen up your skin when required.

Trust in Mother Nature

Natural skincare has become increasingly popular in recent years, due to the potentially harmful nature of many chemical ingredients used in synthetic beauty products, and many supermodels have cottoned on to this trend. Supermodel Lindsey Wixson is a big fan of natural beauty brand RMS Beauty, and both she and Lily Cole are fans of tea tree oil for helping to keep their complexions blemish-free. Miranda Kerr is also a big advocate of organic products and has even launched her own beauty line, KORA Organics.
If you don’t want to splash out on skin products, you could try making your own natural skincare products using ingredients found in your kitchen. Many common kitchen staples can double up as beauty products, such as olive oil – which makes a great natural body moisturiser – and brown sugar, which can be mixed with olive oil to make an exfoliator. Oatmeal is also a useful ingredient for those with dry or eczema-prone skin, either used as an exfoliating cleanser or added to bathwater.

Use an SPF

One of the most important steps for maintaining a supermodel-like complexion is to make sure you always apply sunscreen before you leave the house. Czech-born supermodel Paulina Porizkova, 47, puts her youthful complexion down to the fact that she started using a daily SPF on her face when she was in her 20s. Heidi Klum also advocates wearing a daily SPF and avoiding spending too long in the sun.
As these supermodels know, when it comes to wrinkles prevention is better than cure, so try making an effort now to ward off one of the leading causes of wrinkles. While many of us wait until summer to bring out the sun protection, the UV rays which cause premature ageing (as well as skin cancer) can penetrate through clouds and cause irreversible damage. To help delay signs of ageing, wear an SPF of at least factor 15 every day.

Go makeup-free

Many supermodels, including Adriana Lima and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, are regularly seen out and about without a stitch of makeup. In fact, many of them make a point of going makeup-free while they are away from work. Ranya Mordanova has revealed that she will only wear concealer on her days off, and Bar Refaeli has said she also likes to go make-up free while not working to allow her skin to breathe.
Going make-up free every now and then is good for your skin, and it can also be good for your confidence to know that you don’t need all the cosmetics. To look beautiful without your makeup, try exfoliating your skin and applying a good moisturiser for a natural glow, grooming your eyebrows to help shape your face and wearing colours that complement your natural complexion.

Eat beauty-boosting foods

To get clear and flawless skin it is important to pay attention to your diet as well as your skincare, as most supermodels know. Karolina Kurkova is said to drink green smoothies made from green vegetables and fruit juice as part of her healthy diet, while Mirte Maas has revealed that she eats a diet rich in healthy foods such as whole grains, fresh fruit and veg. Aminata Niaria also puts her glowing skin down to her high consumption of fish, which is rich in beauty-boosting omega-3 fatty acids.
To keep your skin in good condition, make sure you eat a well-balanced and varied diet rich in face-friendly foods, including nutritious fruits, vegetables and oily fish. Deficiencies in nutrients such as iron and vitamin B12 can lead to pale, sallow skin, so make sure you are getting enough of these nutrients in your diet. Nuts are also a great source of vitamin E, which can help the skin to retain its natural moisture levels and stay soft and hydrated.

10 Ways to Promote Kids' Healthy Eating Habits

If bad eating habits reign, they can be hard to change  especially when they've become comfortable routines. But by keeping unhealthy foods out of your home, and bringing healthy foods in, it's possible to promote better eating habits, even with the pickiest kids
.
Whether you're trying to cajole your toddler to give peas a chance, or attempting to persuade your tween into drinking something other than soda, these below healthy tips  might be worth a try.

  • Once kids get their first taste of crunchy, sweet or salty foods , it's hard to get them unhooked. Because of this, instead of banning these kinds of foods outright from the home, limit the number of treats that kids are allowed to eat each day. That way, kids won't be as tempted to want what they can't have because the food won't be completely forbidden.
  •  Banning a specific food is also a bad idea because if the food becomes available to your child outside your home, he or she might eat it despite feeling full. This can lead to a habit of overeating.
  • Rather than giving kids money for treats at school, make it clear the kids can instead save the money and spend it on non-food items.
  • If parents want to buy a treat or a kind of junk food and bring it into the home, buy the smallest possible package of that food instead of the economy bulk sized packages.
  • Encourage kids to drink zero-calorie beverages instead of sugary juices and soda . To help kids develop a healthy liquid calorie habit from an early age, give your toddler plenty of water and plain milk to avoid getting them used to sugary juice or chocolate milk. If you do give them juice, give them 100 percent fruit juice and water it down, mixing equal parts water and juice.
  • When cooking dinner , always make sure to have one item that the kid likes and will eat. Also, cook a limited amount of the starch dish (just enough for one meal) and cook extras of the fruits and vegetables to encourage seconds.
  •  Eat snacks and meals with your child whenever possible, so they see how much you enjoy eating fruits and vegetables, and make mealtime fun by trying new foods together.
  •  Encourage them to take one serving at a time and go back for seconds only if they are still hungry
  •  Allow your child to stop eating when they feel that they are full, even if you sometimes feel that they have not eaten enough
  •  Keeping to a regular meal and snack time schedule discourages kids from grazing throughout the day, or becoming too hungry in between meals.

Colic could be an early sign of migraine

If you’ve ever had a migraine, you probably felt like crying. And that may just be what’s going on with a colicky baby.Children and teens with serious migraine pain were far more likely to have had colic as infants than other, similar kids who did not suffer from migraines.Journal of the American Medical Association, may support something many pediatricians have suspected -- that colicky babies are suffering from the throbbing head pain and, possibly, nausea that make migraines so miserable.The colic may be an early form of migraine and that it could very well be head pain or stomach pain or it could be both.About 74 percent of the children and teens being treated for migraine were also colicky as babies, compared to 26 percent of the kids being seen for some other reason.

Children with other types of headaches, mostly stress-related headache, weren’t as likely to have had colic.The headache patients were more likely to have parents or siblings had a history of headaches, and to have been given formula as babies instead of breastmilk,.
The increased exposure to cow's milk proteins among formula-fed infants could partly explain our finding of a significant association between formula feeding and migraine. The other possibility is that breastfeeding protects children from migraine, but this hypothesis has to be confirmed.

One theory about colic is that the babies are allergic to something in cow’s milk. “The gastrointestinal tract has been suspected because of the infant's apparent abdominal discomfort, and many therapies target it.

Colic may cause stress in parents and it’s also common  as many as 20 percent of babies may have colic.It is usually diagnosed by crying and fussing for more than three hours per day, more than three days per week, and for more than three weeks in an otherwise healthy and well-fed infant

If colic is an early form of migraine, this suggests that migraine disorders may represent a continuum from colic in infancy to cyclic vomiting syndrome in young children to childhood and adult migraine
Monosodium glutamate, stress, and changes in sleep regimen are common triggers. Disrupted sleep, in particular, may be a critical trigger for migraine at any age.

That might be why colicky babies often do better when put into a dark, quiet room and parents trying to comfort colicky babies might think of what works with migraines.Keep them in a dark room. Make sure the environment is quiet. Don’t turn on those lights in the middle of the night just because they are crying. Use a dim light as well.

Babies are learning to sleep through the night at around two or three months, the same age as when colic starts to go away.  A lack of good, solid sleep is associated with migraine, so helping babies learn to sleep well could help with colic as well as being good for their overall health.

Colicky baby had higher numbers of bacteria from a group called Proteobacteria in their guts compared to babies without colic. Proteobacteria include bacteria known to produce gas, which may cause pain in infants and lead to crying.Colicky babies also had lower numbers of bacteria from other groups, called bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. The members of these groups can have anti-inflammatory effects, which may reduce gut inflammation and pain.Some babies with colic have gastric reflux problems or heartburn.

Health Tips: YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!!

I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!!

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 
>>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<<

Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is

'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this post share it to ur frnds ; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:
