Yummy Honey as Medicine – Prevent Infection, Kill Bacteria, Promote Healing

Just another reason for me to love honey. I’m determined to try making those cough drops! If anyone tries it, please leave a comment and tell me how they turned out.

“Did you know you can use honey as medicine?  If I had to choose only one medicine I could have in stock, I think it would be honey. These days, specialty wound-care centers might agree.
Honey has become a staple for those hard-to-heal wounds, such as diabetic leg ulcers, burns, even wounds with gangrene. It kills bacteria resistant to other antibiotics and actually heals tissue, nursing the skin back to health. Not only that, but it can decrease the pain.
But here’s the catch. Some types of honey work better than others. Before we get into that, let’s go over the basics, like …”

5 Reasons Your Belly Fat Won’t Budge

I’d like to thank the lovely Stacy for sharing this article with me:

You work out regularly and follow a clean, healthy diet, so why is your belly fat refusing to budge?

Firstly it’s important to understand that there are 3 types of abdominal fat:
  1. Visceral fat: This protects and supports the organs within the body and makes up the majority of your belly fat. It is the type of fat that, in excess, can lead to cardiovascular disease.
  2. Subcutaneous fat: This is deep below the skin; usually found in large amounts on the hips, thighs and buttocks. This is the second most dangerous fat as it poses a much lower risk of chronic health problems than visceral fat.
  3. Intramuscular fat: This is not common in the abdominal area, but can be found within the abdominal muscles. Excessive amounts of this can be linked to a higher risk of diabetes.”

Bad Weight-Loss Technique…

Exercising on an Empty Stomach

It’s embarrassing to admit, but I used to exercise in the morning on an empty stomach. Not only did I worry about getting cramps if I ate, but I also thought it could speed up weight loss. The idea seems logical — if you don’t have any food in your belly, your body will start using up stores of fat as its energy source. I’m not the only one. “

Steer Clear of These Foods

Okay, I’m upset about the Prego.  Anyone have a good, easy recipe for spaghetti sauce?

Unfortunately, there are dozens of foods that are so bad for you that they should be permanentlyeliminated from your diet.In many cases, the key problem is that these foods contain ingredients that encourage your body to store fat and stop you from losing weight.
However, it is not always easy to spot these unhealthy foods just by looking at them, as clever advertising may be used to make the foods appear innocent.
By removing the following meals and snacks from your kitchen cupboards, you will maximize your chances of staying fit and healthy for as long as possible.
