Fat Burning Furnace- review

Designed by Rob Poulos, Fat Burning Furnace is a weight loss program that shows you how you can get slimmer and teaches you the 5 facts of permanent fat loss. Bob spent years trying to find a good fat loss program, and finally came up with his own based on his experiences.

The 128 page e-book has three different sections and is in digital format for instant download. The first section will give you some basic information about fat loss and introduces the program.

The second section covers the fitness aspect of the program and gives you relevant information about exercises and workouts. The last section of the book covers nutrition, so you know exactly what you need to eat with the exercise routine. You’ll also get many great bonuses and free tools, including email support. The book and bonuses cost $39.97 and you get a 60 day iron clad 100% money back guarantee in case you don’t like it.

Fat Burning Furnace System is basically a set of exercise routines combined with a basic eating plan, that aim to maintain pressure on your body to burn fat even when not exercising. The author does not believe in long workouts, or any sort of cardiovascular workouts, so his workouts involve just weights and can be completed in as little as 15 – 25 minutes a day.

The primary focus of the system is to perform some targeted exercises like curls for your arms, but perform them very slowly to maximize the impact they have. This also means you only have to do one set of the exercises, unlike the 3 sets most people are encouraged to do, which allows you to complete the workouts so quickly.

Since Fat Burning Furnace is not a crazy fad diet, you should expect to see more modest fat loss results. However, this doesn’t mean you won’t see great results quickly. Most customers show great results after only a week, losing around 3-5 pounds. After about a month, many lose 10-15 pounds. These seem to be pretty normal results for people following the Fat Burning Furnace program. While results depend on many different factors, you should see results close to these if you follow the program correctly.

The system could include more information on diet and nutrition, and it looks like this was added afterwards to complement the exercises as it is not as comprehensive as the information regarding the workouts.

Fat Burning Furnace is a fat loss guide that provides an easy to follow plan that is suitable for people with hectic lives. While it does focus on good nutrition and exercise, it won’t require you to make any dramatic changes to your life to see results. If you’re willing to put in the effort with this program, you should see great fat loss results.

Using The Brain to Improve Your Personal Life

When you use your mind, you set out to gain qualities that point you in the right direction.

Commitments:

We all have commitments. Commitments are a part of life. When you have commitments, you enter into promises that you’ll get something done. Start making commitments to you. I commit to change habits that obstruct me from accomplishing my goals, or bettering my personal life.

Skills:

Evaluate your skills to see how you are able to use them to better your life. While you’re evaluating your skills, search for new skills. Reach deep down, accept the discomforts, fears, or things you don’t like, look past them and find new skills.

Priorities:

Do you have your priorities straight? Do you have all your plans in perspective? Reassess your plans to make certain that you’re on the right path to improve your personal life. If you notice areas you can improve, do not be afraid to take action. Taking action is the last steps you’ll take in anything you do that helps to improve your life.

Failure:

How do you view failure? Failure is common and happens to all us every day. Failure helps us to learn how to develop and grow into a better person. If you sit around stressing failure, then you’re heading nowhere quick. Failure is a part of life. Learn from your failures, accept your blame and move to make things better for you.

Saying no:

Individuals hear the word no and fear it. No isn’t a rejection. When you say no I’m not going to the bar, you’re saying I have better things to do than waste my time in a building filled with drunks. Sometimes you have to tell somebody you love no. For example, you may have to tell your better half no when he or she asks you to watch TV when you know you have to hit the books. Do not let your mate hold you back. It’s ok to say no.

Rules:

We all follow rules. Rules are a part of life, which sometimes the rules are hard to digest. You have to learn to open up your passageway and digest them anyway unless you are willing to stand up and protest in a positive way. People complaining about rules they don’t like and not taking action is wasting everyone’s time. You have the power, yet it takes you to use that power.

Trial rides:

Life is filled with trail rides. Day-after-day we walk out our door we’re on a trial ride. Every day we have good trials and bad trials. How do you handle trials? If you’re willing to take risks in life, likely you handle trials well. On the other hand, if you fear changes, then you’ll need to find a way to deal with the trials in life. Regrettably, too many individuals deal with these trials by drinking excessively or drugging. Do not be one of these individuals.

You have many options in life. Good options and bad options will come your very daily. Sometimes you’ll choose bad options, yet when you make mistakes, do not dwell rather pull up your resources to see how you could have done things different, and do it different the next time.

Mind Secrets Exposed is a fantastic addition to any library and is a must-read for anyone who is interested in unlocking the mind’s full potential.

Spider Veins and their Treatment

How To Get Rid Of Varicose Veins Naturally.

 

Spider veins are those small blue, red and purplish looking vessels that are very close to the surface of the skin. They often cause the individual embarrassment and some discomfort. More women than men are at risk of developing spider veins.

Risk factors are obesity, pregnancy, hormonal changes and standing or sitting for long periods of time. People who have a genetic history where they  have family members who  suffer from spider veins or varicose veins will also have a higher risk for developing the same  problem.

While you may be more interested in how to treat this condition than in how it developed, if you  learn how they develop then you are able to decrease the likelihood that you will develop more.

The top method for treating spider veins is a procedure called sclerotherapy.  A 23% saline solution with lidocaine and heparin are injected into the vein using a very small needle. The saline solution will cause the blood to clot and the veins to collapse. Within about two to six weeks the body will have reabsorbed the veins and they will be no longer visible either on ultrasound or to the naked eye.

Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure that is done in the doctor’s office. Once the procedure is finished the patient can use ibuprofen or Tylenol for discomfort and will be encouraged to remain active during the day. It is a very minimally invasive process that will allow the patient to return to their daily activities on the first day. Most Patients  find that their symptoms from the spider veins are reduced or eliminated quickly.  Individuals who suffer from multiple spider veins will require multiple office visits to remove all of the offending veins.

Another procedure used for spider veins is laser treatment. Laser treatments direct a variety of wavelengths to the veins. This thermal energy from the laser causes damage to the blood vessels. After this  they will clot and eventually be reabsorbed into the body.

Laser treatment is the preferred method of treatment for individuals who suffer from spider veins on the face. While this method is slightly more expensive than sclerotherapy, it  is completely pain-free and allows the individual the ability to go through one process or one procedure in order to rid themselves of all spider veins.

The choice in treatment for spider veins is between the patient and the Doctor. The Doctor will inform the patient of the different options, and help them to make a decision that is  based on their overall general health, the position of the spider veins and the number of treatments they think will be necessary in order to successfully treat the condition.

Review of Mind Secrets Exposed

I am no stranger to self-help books. I’ve read dozens of them over the past few years and I’ve come to same conclusion most of you have – they don’t really work.

Well, that’s not quite true. There are some shining gems that actually give what they promise and actually provide quality content.

Mind Secrets Exposed is one of those few examples of a great self-help book that actually delivers on its promise.

Greg Frost is the brains behind Mind Secrets Exposed and his latest offering focuses on the enhancing the power of the mind so that it can accomplish great things. Mind Secrets Exposed is a comprehensive guide on harnessing the power of the mind and tapping into its hidden potential and channeling it into success and happiness.

With Mind Secrets Exposed, readers are promised the ability to gain success, wealth, happiness, peace and anything else they would like to accomplish or have. I am glad to say that it doesn’t disappoint. Mind Secrets Exposed comes in two formats – an e-book and an audiobook, the standard for self-help books.

The book is written in a personal and casual manner, such that even the most novice of readers can grasp the concepts easily. Each chapter ends with action steps that provide tips and advice on implementing the chapter’s lessons into the reader’s daily life. These action steps are a welcome addition to the book, as it provides impetus and direction for the reader to take action – this way, the lessons in the book become more than just words and concepts and is turned into actual results.

Mind Secrets Exposed does not provide a quick and dirty scheme for becoming a better person – those books generally deal in myth and are typically not worth your money. Instead, Mind Secrets Exposed can turn you in a better person and a success machine with some investment in time and effort.

Beyond the book itself, Greg Frost has also included Quick Wealth System, which is a fast and easy training program on creating wealth in your life and a monthly newsletter that provides even more content dealing with success, the workings of the brain as well as a motivational and success coaching program.

The monthly newsletter, known as Success Monthly, is another highlight of Mind Secrets Exposed. It is a comprehensive guide on success, motivation and becoming an achiever and its articles and videos cover a wide range of topics that self-help enthusiasts will find incredibly useful. Probably the best feature of Success Monthly is a coaching program that aims to harness and improve your ability to achieve success and greatness. The coaching program is a great addition and supplement to the book itself, adding a more immediate and constant guide for readers who want to accomplish their goals.

Success Monthly is offered via a monthly membership scheme, but the first month is free for anyone who buys Mind Secrets Exposed. While paying a monthly fee might sound like too much of an investment for some, the content provided in the first month is enough to convince me to maintain my membership.

All in all, Mind Secrets Exposed is a fantastic addition to any library and is a must-read for anyone who is interested in unlocking the mind’s full potential. The book promises to turn you into an achiever and a person capable of accomplishing anything and it delivers on that promise in spades.

I heartily recommend this book and it’s a great investment – don’t lose out on your chance to join the ranks of the elite!

Baldness Solutions To End The Hair Raising Story Of Hair Loss

Hair is a striking feature of human body. Hair loss, especially by female/male pattern baldness is matter of great concern. Pattern baldness is particularly is very troubling condition. In this type of baldness the hair is regularly lost at both the temples and at top of the skull. At last the person is left with a horseshoe pattern in the head.

Male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) is the chief devil that causes hair loss. With age one suffers from this disorder by acquiring the genetic predisposition and presence of male hormones. Contrary to the common perception, hereditary baldness is not a must in each generation. However, if one’s father is completely bald and one loses hair at an early stage, then he is said to be in male pattern baldness due to alopecia and 95% of complete baldness occurs by alopecia.

Excess amount of male hormone also causes hair loss. Besides, stress, improper nutrition and pollution together accelerate the baldness. One under stress will loss hair at double the speed of a normal human.

Taking dietary supplement and/or external application of cosmetics is fruitless to stop baldness. Fortunately, there are several baldness solutions, the most popular ones being hair transplantation surgery, scalp reduction surgery and scalp flap surgery.

There is no such thing as true hair transplant. Surgeons replace the bald area from some other hair-healthy area of the head. Hence, the name hair replacement transplant. Hair transplant works when there is enough donor hairs. Victims of female/male pattern balding are the best candidates for hair transplant. If you still have hair growing anywhere around the scalp flaps hair transplantation can be easy and effective.

Scalp reduction surgery is a popular balding solution to cure the baldness caused by flaking scalps. It can be done in conjunction with hair transplants and involves surgically removing of a portion of the balding area, which causes the bald spot to be smaller. This means that there are fewer areas to graft to the head during a hair transplant.

Scalp flap is an invasive procedure that involves surgically removing a portion of healthy scalp and hair from the back or sides of the head and transplanting it on the bald areas. This creates a new hairline for the males who suffer from male pattern baldness. Scalp flaps are usually performed on patients who have complete balding in the front area of the scalp. Those candidates whose hair is just beginning to thin or is thinning in patches in random areas spanning the head may want to choose a different type of treatment.

Homeopathic Treatments for Varicose Veins

 

The first sign of a varicose vein is swelling along the path the vein takes down the leg. After this most people notice bluish or reddish tinged coloring to the area as well as a swelling along the vein. Varicose veins are the result of damaged one way valves that help push the blood through the veins and forward to the heart. When the valves become damaged, the blood is able to pool within the veins and decreases the ability of the body to remove toxins and oxygenate the tissues. (1)

At this time, traditional Western medicine believes that sclerotherapy is the gold standard for treating varicose veins. However, some insurance companies do not cover this expense if there are no other underlying medical symptoms. And, some women would like to try other more natural remedies in order to treat their varicose veins and prevent any further from occurring.

Many women find their varicose veins have a genetic predisposition. In other words, there were other men or women in the family who suffered from varicose veins in years past. This meant that the valves in the veins were predisposed to being weaker and giving them trouble. However, by using some of the preventative measures outlined below many times men and women are able to significantly reduce their risk of developing spider veins or varicose veins.

Prior to trying any of these homeopathic alternative treatments it is important to check with your primary care physician to ensure that you will not negatively impact any other underlying medical condition.

One of the reasons that varicose veins and spider veins will form is because the muscle contractions required to move the blood through the venous system are not strong enough, and the blood begins to pool. In response to this, many women and men find that doing calf raises and other exercises for the lower extremities throughout the day will help to improve muscle strength and therefore the venous pump system.

Calf raises are done either on a stair or on a set of stacked books. Put your toes on the edge of the steps or the ball of your foot on a couple of stacked books and raise and lower your entire body using only the ball of your foot. This exercise works the calf muscle which plays a significant role in the venous pump system.

Try working up to 50 to 100 calf raises each day as well as raising up on the toes from time to time throughout the day. In response to the development of these calf muscles you must also stretch them. This can be accomplished by placing one leg behind the other approximately 6 to 8 inches from the solid wall. Place your hands on the wall, with your knee of the extended leg straight and your other knee bent, lean into the wall. You should feel the calf muscle begin to stretch.

Walking is another exercise that can be done, rain or shine, every single day, in order to improve the muscle development in the lower extremities. Walking aids the return of the venous blood, not only during the walk but also for several hours afterwards.

When you find you will be sitting or standing for any length of time be sure to make it a point to get up every 10 to 15 minutes and move around. If your job entails standing in one place, then be sure to do some calf raises and move your legs at least every 10 minutes. Once you get home, prop your legs up above the level of your heart for at least 30 minutes to help improve the flow of blood through the venous system.

Compression stockings are another means of improving circulation and have been the mainstay of treatment for varicose veins for decades. Compression stockings can also be used to prevent the formation of varicose veins, especially when you know there is a genetic predisposition to the condition. Individuals who suffer from varicose veins will also experience some relief from symptoms using compresison stockins. (2,3)

Excess weight is another risk factor that significantly changes the percentage of individuals who will develop varicose veins or spider veins. By exercising and controlling your weight you will also improve the circulation of blood in your legs and decrease the amount of pressure placed on the valves.

Another way of maintaining an appropriate weight is to eat a balanced diet. The nutrients may also help prevent varicose veins. For example, vitamin C and protein are both components of the production of collagen. Collagen, while a significant factor in anti-aging products, is also one part of the development of veins and valves. If you have enough collagen in your veins and valves and in good shape, you are more likely to be resilient to varicose veins.

While standing for too long can be an issue, so can sitting. Some experts theorize that even sitting for extended periods can contribute to the development of varicose veins. The theory is that the bending of knees and hips will slow the return of blood to the heart. So, it is very important that during any long car ride or plane ride or anytime you are sitting behind your desk you can also routinely move your legs, rotates your ankles and clench your toes.

While sitting can create greater pressure in the lower extremities, crossing your legs will slow the circulation even further. Remember that if you want to cross your legs, they should be crossed at the ankles only. Crossing at the knees not only causes increased pressure and increases the risk of closing the veins, but it also negatively impacts any problems with the knees and hips.

If you know you have a genetic predisposition to varicose veins, or have some chronic swelling in the lower legs already, it is helpful to sleep with a few pillows under your feet in order to keep them elevated above the level of your heart. Look for shoes that have lower heals that require the calf muscles to do more work. Some of the new tennis shoes, now being produced for women who want to increase their caloric burn while walking, are also helpful for women and men who want to treat and prevent varicose veins.

Don’t wear underwear that are tight at the waist or in the groin. This acts as a tourniquet that restricts blood flow and can not only increase your risk of developing varicose veins, but can also increase your risk of developing cellulite.

Some women find that the use of vitamin E, witch hazel or Apple cider vinegar can help reduce the effects of varicose veins or spider veins when applied to the skin in the morning or evening. The herb horse chestnut is another of the most widely used natural treatments for spider or varicose veins. The active compound appears to block the release of enzymes that damage the capillary walls.

Researchers in a 2006 study found that individuals who used horse chestnut had improvements in the signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency, including spider veins and varicose veins. There were some adverse events which were usually mild and infrequent and included nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache. Individuals who choose to take horse chestnut should do so from a reputable dealer since there is a toxic component which must be removed prior to sale and can cause circulatory and respiratory failure or even death. (4)

Grape seed extract and pine bark both contain anti-oxidants that appear to strengthen the connective tissue and reduce inflammation. The most common side effects are digestive complaints such as nausea and upset stomach. But people who have an autoimmune condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn’s disease, should not take either grape seed extract or pine bark because of its effects on the immune system. (5,6)

And lastly, Reflexology is a form of therapy that focuses primarily on the feet. This form of medical treatment was studying with pregnant women and showed significant reduction in leg swelling. Reflexology has little adverse side effects but must be applied by a a trained practitioner in order to receive maximum benefits.

Calories burned running vs walking

http://order0105.newimage11.hop.clickbank.net

People who exercise often want to know how many calories they are burning…..at least I  I do anyway!

Many of today’s machines have this function built right into the processor. In fact, even some of the older model machines  give the athlete a good indication of how many calories they’ve burned while doing their daily routines.

Athletes who don’t use machines though often have the same questions.

How many calories burned running vs. walking?

Some say that calories burned running vs walking is the same. ….But the truth is  different. ……and it isn’t what you may think.

The truth is this ….speed does matter; as well as how much weight is being carried and how much oxygen is burned.

It’s a combination that can work to your advantage to walk quickly or run slowly or run quickly.  

You can anticipate those numbers to give yourself the best advantage when working toward burning the most number of calories.

The calories burned running vs. walking has been studied from different angles and at different universities. In a study published in Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise researchers measured the actual calorie burn of 12 men and 12 women while running and walking. The results showed that the men, who weighed more, burned more calories and in both groups the running burned more calories than the walking.

Part of the explanation for these differences is based on oxygen consumption. For every liter of oxygen you consume you will burn 5 calories. And because running involves the consumption of more oxygen it stands to reason that it also burns more calories. However, when the body weight is great and the physical abilities of the body are limited walking also increases oxygen consumption.

In general, controlling for weight, physical abilities and oxygen consumption the differences between calories burned running vs walking is that runners burn an average of 10 calories each minute while walkers burn an average of 5 calories per minutes.

But, let’s look at this equation. If an obese man with poor physical abilities walks quickly his calorie burn will be greater because of the increased oxygen consumption and weight. But as his physical ability increases and weight decreases the number of calories burned for the same perceived effort will be less.

There is a distinct advantage to running when comparing calories burned running vs. walking. That advantage is the decreased amount of time needed to burn the same number of calories. This is an advantage that many runner find fits well in the fast paced, little off-time society in which we live. When an athlete has only 20 minutes to work out they can burn 200 calories as opposed to the 100 calories a walker will burn.

However, running has been known to increase the wear and tear on the cartilage and discs of the knee and hip joints. The increase amount of weight that lands on those joints throughout a run or jog puts added stress to the joints. Walking quickly may also increase the oxygen consumption and therefore the calories burned without adding stress to the knee and hip joints; a happy medium that may help athletes to continue working out when the knees and hips are complaining from the pounding.

Turmeric -the latest health craze

http://www.secretsofturmeric.com/thebenefits/?go=order0105

It is not made of gold, but it might as well be, given the raising popularity of “Golden milk” or a turmeric latte – a mixture of nut milk and juiced turmeric root – this is the drink of choice in 2016’s .
According to Google, searches for the spice turmeric increased by 56% from November 2015 to January 2016.

turmeric latt   Searches for the words “golden milk” is      among the top online searches associated      with the spice and Turmeric lattes are    now  being sold at cafes from Sydney to  San  Francisco and its popularity drink is  also  gaining in the UK.

 

 

 

Now lets get real…. it seems a little odd.

Turmeric is mostly known as a curry ingredient that leaves yellow stains everywhere even appliances and fingernails.
I grew up in Uganda where my father worked as a vet. Uganda had a large Asian population and my early memories are always conjured up with the smell of coconut oil that they used to use on their hair and turmeric that they used in their curry.

Now years later the west is wakening up to the benefits of this spice!

After ghee, homemade yogurt and coconut oil, turmeric is the latest health-food trend to originate from the south Asian pantry.
Turmeric and milk is a common drink in the Asian food culture, where it is used as a restorative. Turmeric is also part of Ayurvedic medicine –which is a holistic,all-natural approach to health that has been practiced in India for centuries.

Then of course it is a spice that has been used in curries and rice dishes for centuries also.
If we snoop around a south Asian recipe website like Khana Pakana, we will see that they describe a turmeric-and-milk combination, haldi doodh, as a drink women consume to lighten their skin. They also advocate turmeric spice to help with everything from cancer to a cough, and can be given to children with a fever.
Turmeric is promoted for its health benefits – it is as an anti-inflammatory and can be used as an alternative to Coffee.

I take 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric in my hot water and lemon drink in the morning. A quarter teaspoon is as much as I can take as I find it quite strong so I am not sure I am at the turmeric latte stage quite yet!

If you want to learn more about the benefits of Turmeric and how you can use this spice in your daily diet then take a look here where the top ten benefits of turmeric are listed and you can get recipes that include this spice
