Triglycerides are found in body fat and from the fats you eat. Triglycerides levels in the blood reflect what you have eaten recently. HDL and LDL cholesterol levels show what you have been eating over a long period of time. If you eat a fatty meal your triglyceride levels will be elevated for a short period of time. If you continue to eat a diet high in fat your triglyceride levels will continue to rise. The liver transfers the triglycerides into body fat, or cholesterol, which raises LDL and lowers HDL levels in the blood.
Hello, I am transitioning and I really do not want to do a big chop, I have had chemicals in my hair for well over half of my life, while I know and understand this will not be an easy journey, is there anything you could give me advice wise that will shed some light while on this journey. I have seen people natural and its pretty, but most times they tell me that they have big chopped, I have a really nice length of hair and I do clip my ends often, but is there anything else that you could recommend that will help me along the way. My hair is a good mix of wiry and spongy if that makes sense, my mom has natural hair that is a little thick and curly and my dad has really fine curly hair and I guess I am the one in between with the spongy wiry combination. HELPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s also important not to use indulgences as a reward for eating healthy. It’s better to own the reality that you consumed an indulgent food and that it has an assigned place in your healthy life than to justify its consumption because you ate well all week long. If indulgent choices still elicit guilt, you might ask yourself if your eating plan is too restrictive.
Hello. I absolutely love this website. i think i’ve been through all your posts already and comments. lol! I have them all saved and i’ve made my own notes. I can’t even start by describing my hair texture. I’m a 21 year old white girl, leaving in Seychelles. I was born with beautiful curly blonde hair (they called me Goldilocks back in my youth days). I was still so young, my mum was the one who always combed by hair to go to school in the mornings, by the time i was 10, my hair was really long and she got fed up with detangling. She decided straight hair was more manageable so she had my beautiful hair relaxed without even thinking about the concequences. We live next to the beach and here in Seychelles the weather is very hot and sunny, so you can imagine what that contributed to my hair. My hair was ruined. After a while she had it cut really short, but it never went back to the way it was. So she kept taking me to hairdressers to have it relaxed. After a while everyone kept criticising my hair, especially my family who doesn’t understand the struggle of it cause they have straight silky hair. Everyone always has something to say. I stoppped relaxing my hair about five years ago or so, and a hairdresser suggested i try out a relaxer perm. It was okay when it was done but after two weeks or so my hair would simply go back to the way it was. And then they suggested i do Keratin. The last time i’ve been to the hairdresser was in December 2015. I was so fustrated with my hair and poeple who didn’t understand that my hair is just simply damaged and dry and that no matter what i do in it, it will not go back to the way it was .EVER! So i decided to just stop everything and go natural. Ofcourse i had no idea what that meant! I had never dyed my hair so i decided this was my last chance to ever have my hair dyed if i wanted to go natural,and i was thinking it would be easier to distinguish between the damaged parts to the new growth. My natural hair is about four inches long now. And theres alot of breakage and shredding. To tell you the truth i was so scared. I kept asking myself, WHAT THE H*LL WERE YOU THINKING? lol. i went to yet another hairdresser who is considered good here in Seychelles and he suggested i do Keratin ( Thats what i heard) and my mum heard ( Carotine) ???? He told me to come back this week to have it done. But i won’t. i don’t want to dissapoint myself again. I havn’t chopped my hair yet. the right side is bra lengh and the left side is somewhere shorter and at the top of my head, well, it’s really short. all of it is shredded. i have to pin in when i go to work or school.Im just too scared to cut my hair even though i know i should. I don’t have the courage yet. But i’m really very happy i’ve stumbled upon your website. I feel more confident about my hair. Finally, i can stop feeling bad about my hair. Sometimes i just feel like i don’t fit in especially with Family. They just don’t understand how my hair is now. But i’ve made peace with it. I accept it now, all thanks to this website. So thank you… ALOT! Pease keep the posts coming. I wish i could send you a picture. Could you please advice on natural hair treatments i can do at home. Here in Seychelles, they don’t have good hair products or if they do, i don’t know which ones are good. Would be great if you could advice me!
Gastrointestinal disorders are another common cause of unexplained weight loss – in fact they are the most common non-cancerous cause of idiopathic weight loss.[citation needed] Possible gastrointestinal etiologies of unexplained weight loss include: celiac disease, peptic ulcer disease, inflammatory bowel disease (crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), pancreatitis, gastritis, diarrhea and many other GI conditions.

Hi there – I would recommend using a clarifying shampoo to remove product buildup if any. Follow up with a moisturizing deep conditioner. From there, every 1-2 days, use the LOC or LOC method to moisturize your hair (try both to see which one works best for your hair). Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo and use a moisturizing deep conditioner every week. Follow the directions on the packaging. Avoid silicones. Examine your ends every 6-8 weeks and trim if needed. Use a gentle clarifying shampoo once a month or so. There is so much info out there about various routines, but this is a simple start that you can add to and adjust as you go. Keeping a journal to track what works and what doesn’t is great advice. Best of luck!

Virtual gastric band uses hypnosis to make the brain think the stomach is smaller than it really is and hence lower the amount of food ingested. This brings as a consequence weight reduction. This method is complemented with psychological treatment for anxiety management and with hypnopedia. Research has been conducted into the use of hypnosis as a weight management alternative.[17][18][19][20] In 1996 a study found that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) was more effective for weight reduction if reinforced with hypnosis.[18] Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT, a mindfulness approach to weight loss, has also in the last few years been demonstrating its usefulness.[21]
Weight loss starts with the brain, not the belly,” says psychotherapist Doris Wild Helmering, MSW, coauthor of Think Thin, Be Thin. For many people, achieving a healthy weight is possible only once certain mental and emotional issues have been addressed. Why? Because many of us overeat or avoid exercise for reasons we don’t entirely understand — or that we feel powerless to control.

Studies have found that couples who cohabitate before marriage are at a greater risk of divorce. I, personally, found these studies troubling. Or rather, I found the fact that people have flocked to them as proof that couples shouldn’t live together before marriage very troubling. It just isn’t practical or reasonable to state that living together before marriage wouldn’t give a couple some advantages. I’ll go so far as to say that not living together before marriage is dangerous (I’ll get to that later). It doesn’t matter how much time you spend with a partner—you don’t know what it’s like to live together until you live together. Some couples will say, “Well we practically live together.” No—you don’t. You always have your own place to escape to and the knowledge that you have that place. That changes everything. I’d like to dispute the dangerous belief that couples shouldn’t live together until marriage. Sure, couples who live together first are at higher risk of divorce, but I don’t think it has much to do with living together. Here are the actual probable causes.


Damage to the hair must be trimmed away or grown out. For example, there is not a permanent cure for split-ends. There are some conditioners that can essentially patch split-ends and make them less visible, but over a period of time those split-ends will reappear. The only way to permanently get rid of your split-ends is to trim them away. You should absolutely never burn away your split-ends.
Many patients will be in pain and have a loss of appetite after surgery.[26] Part of the body's response to surgery is to direct energy to wound healing, which increases the body's overall energy requirements.[26] Surgery affects nutritional status indirectly, particularly during the recovery period, as it can interfere with wound healing and other aspects of recovery.[26][30] Surgery directly affects nutritional status if a procedure permanently alters the digestive system.[26] Enteral nutrition (tube feeding) is often needed.[26] However a policy of 'nil by mouth' for all gastrointestinal surgery has not been shown to benefit, with some suggestion it might hinder recovery.[38]
