Top Ten Fertility Foods

One of the most difficult situations in a marriage is when a couple tries unsuccessfully for years to have children. However people often ask when is the right time to seek professional help? Medical advice states that a young couple who have been trying to conceive for over a year with no success should make an appointment with an infertility specialist. If you are over 40, then make an appointment after six months of trying. Infertility specialists will use a series of tests to determine just what the problem is. The tests will involve examining the woman’s fallopian tubes, uterus and studying the quality of your eggs. They will also investigate the quality and quantity of the man’s sperm.

Ten Top Diet Myths

The term dieting often gets a bad rap which is sometimes obvious in the sneers and giggles you may observe from friends when you inform them that you are on a diet. Some people’s negative reaction to the term dieting is partly because of their misunderstanding of what a diet is and partly because most people are unsuccessful at dieting. Dieting is an adjustment or regulation to a person’s intake of food to achieve a set goal either for medical reasons or cosmetic weight loss. Most people correlate dieting with losing weight but there are many different types of diets for many different aims. For example Olympic swimmers are some of the fittest and slimmest athletes but a male Olympic swimmer’s average daily calorie intake on their training diet is 8,000 to 10,000 calories per day. The average man consumes just north of 2,500 calories per day.  People go on diets for various reasons such as to reduce cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, lose baby fat, build muscle, shape out for their wedding day. However most people go on diets in order to lose weight, look and feel better about themselves. The problem with dieting for weight loss is that most […]

What happens to your body within an hour of drinking Coke

Is this what Coke does to your body? If it is, it isn’t pretty Drinking Coca-Cola is bad, really bad. Yet it tastes so good. Now someone has finally worked out exactly what happens to your body when you drink it. And it isn’t good news. Within 10 minutes of drinking one 330ml can, 10 teaspoons of sugar will hit your internal system, according to pharmacist Niraj, who runs a blog called The Renegade Pharmacist as well as writing for Truth Theory. The sugar hit is so intense, he says, that you would normally vomit, except the phosphoric acid inside the coke ‘cuts the flavour’ so you can keep the liquid down. In the next 40 minutes or so your pupils will dilate, your blood sugar will spike and you’ll get a huge caffeine hit. After 60 minutes and the ‘rave’ inside of you is complete, you will crash, need to pee, and become irritable. You’ll probably want another coke. The pharmacist said: ‘Coke is not just high in high fructose corn syrup, but it is also packed with refined salts and caffeine. ‘Regular consumption of these ingredients in the high quantities you find in Coke and other processed foods […]
