20 Slimming Fruits Foods

20 Slimming Superfoods A lot has been said and written about so-called superfoods are nutritional powerhouses that help build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. But did you know new evidence suggests these foods can also help you get—and stay—slim? Not all calories are created equal. Different foods go through different metabolic pathways in the body. They can have vastly different effects on hunger, hormones and how many calories we burn. This write up will be looking at 20 of such supper foods and most weight loss friendly foods on earth, that are supported by science.   1. Whole Eggs Once feared for being high in cholesterol, whole eggs have been making a comeback. New studies now show that they don’t adversely affect blood cholesterol and don’t cause heart attacks. What’s more… they are among the best foods you can eat if you need to lose weight. They’re high in protein, healthy fats, and can make you feel full with a very low amount of calories. A study carried out for 8 weeks found out that eggs for breakfast increased weight loss on a calorie restricted diet compared to bagels Eggs are also incredibly nutrient dense and can help you get all the nutrients you need on a calorie restricted diet. Almost all the nutrients are found in the yolks.   2. Leafy Greens Leafy greens include kale, spinach, collards, Swiss chards and a few others. They have several properties that make them perfect for a weight loss diet. They are low in both calories and carbohydrates, but loaded with fiber.  Eating leafy greens is a great way to increase the volume of your meals, without increasing the calories. Numerous studies show that meals and diets with a low energy density make people eat fewer calories overall. Leafy greens are also incredibly nutritious and very high in all sorts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This includes calcium, which has been shown to aid fat burning in some studies   3. Salmon Oily fish like salmon is incredibly healthy. It is also very satisfying, keeping you full for many hours with relatively few calories. Salmon is loaded with high quality protein, healthy fats and also contains all sorts of important nutrients.  Fish, and seafood in general, supplies a significant amount of iodine. This nutrient is necessary for proper function of the thyroid, which is important to keep the metabolism running optimally Studies show that a huge number of people in the world aren’t getting all the iodine they need and Salmon which is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation, which is known to play a major role in obesity and metabolic disease.  Mackerel, Trout, Sardines, Herring and other types of oily fish are also excellent. 4. Cruciferous Vegetables Cruciferous vegetables include Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage and Brussels sprouts.  Just like other vegetables, they are high in fiber and tend to be incredibly fulfilling. What’s more these types of veggies also tend to contain decent amounts of protein. They’re not as high in protein as animal foods or legumes, but they’re high compared to most vegetables.  A combination of protein, fiber and low energy density makes cruciferous vegetables the perfect foods to include in your meals if you need to lose weight. They are also highly nutritious, and contain cancer fighting substances     5. Lean Beef and Chicken Breast  Meat has been unfairly demonized. It has been blamed for all sorts of health problems, despite no good evidence to back it up. Although processed meat is unhealthy, studies show that unprocessed red meat does NOT raise the risk of heart disease or diabetes According to two big review studies, red meat has only a very weak correlation with cancer in men, and no correlation at all in women The truth is… meat is a weight loss friendly food, because it’s high in protein. But moderation is the key word here. Protein is the most fulfilling nutrient, by far, and eating a high protein diet can make you burn up to 80 to 100 more calories per day Studies have shown that increasing your protein intake to 25-30% of calories can cut cravings by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and cause weight loss of almost a pound per week… just by adding protein to the diet

Namibia A Place to visit in Africa

I came to Namibia about 5 years ago, and it has been truly blissful for me since I came.  Before my arrival, I did a google search for location and where the country is located and the people. I found out that Namibia is on the south-western coast of Africa with the Atlantic Ocean on the west, Angola and Zambia in the north, South Africa in the south and Botswana in the east. Namibia received her independence On March 21st 1990 from South Africa; In fact the country was a part of South Africa before independence. The country has the Namib Desert, it’s one of the least densely populated countries in the world. It was one of the most scenic and vivid places I have ever been. To attest to this Hollywood came to the Namib Desert to shot the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, 10,000 years BC, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Beyond Boarders and a host of others. Namibia safaris experience is truly unique compared to any other that I have experienced. The country has it fare share of elephants, lions and giraffes and a white rhino at Etosha Park. In Namibia, it’s more natural beauty and the amazing tribes. First there is the Orange/red ancient tribes of Namibia, cave carvings dating back to 10-20 million years ago. The place is truly breath-taking One of the most remarkable sights in Namibia is Sand dunes – Dune 7 – at Walvis Bay.  The bright red/orange

What Goes Round Comes Round!

One day a man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her. Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you. He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.” Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt.

All that glitters is not gold

In a beautiful desert there lived a camel herder in a village. He had a herd of camels.The camel herder was a kind man and he looked after the camels very well. There was a camel in the herd who was very beautiful and had a red spot on his head which made him look different from other camels. He was the favorite of his master too.  The red headed camel was very popular among the people of the village. They called him''The camel with red head.''  There was a city near that village. Everyday  the camel used to pass by that city with his camels to reach his home from workplace. Each time the camel with red head saw the fast moving colorful vehicles,the wide roads and high buildings of the city he got so fascinated by the city's vibrance. One evening, when they returned home from that way, the camel got thrilled again on seeing the bright colorful lights of the city.  ''What a lovely and exciting place.The city looks so beautiful from here. How good it would be if I go to the city and see it by  myself.",the camel thought. One Day when the camel herder was passing by the city with the camels, the camel with red head escaped from there and reached the city.  He entered the city with great excitement.

African King - This is good!!

The story is told of a African King who had a close friend with whom he grew up. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life (positive or negative) and remarking, "This is good!" One day the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns, for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the situation, the friend remarked as usual, "This is good!" To which the king replied - "No, this is not good!" and proceeded to send his friend to jail.
