Strange BUT true
Crazy health tips that really work….
Many methods to improve your health are really straight forward: to lose weight eat less and exercise more, to boost your energy get more sleep, however the following health tips below really work but they may leave you scratching your head! Let’s get started……
1. HEALTHY TEETH, DON’T BRUSH AFTER EATING
Don’t brush your teeth immediately after meals and drinks especially if they were acidic! Acidic foods- citrus, soy beans, most fresh vegetables, unsweetened yoghourt etc. acidic food can soften tooth enamel, brushing your teeth at this point can speed up acid’s effect on the enamel, and erode the layer underneath! Therefore it is advisable to wait 30-60 minutes before brushing!
2. TO EAT LESS, EAT MORE
Grabbing a 100-calorie snack pack of cookies may seem virtuous, but it’s more likely to make you hungrier than if you ate something more substantial. Eating small amounts of carbohydrates does nothing but spike your blood sugar and leave you wanting more carbs. Choosing a protein such as peanut butter or string cheese with an apple. They are higher in calories per serving, but the protein and fat helps you get full faster and stay full longer—and you end up eating fewer calories overall.
3. SKIP ENERGY DRINKS WHEN YOU’RE TIRED
Energy drinks contain up to five times more caffeine than coffee, but the boost they provide is fleeting and comes with unpleasant side effects like nervousness, irritability, and rapid heartbeat. Plus, energy drinks often contain high levels of taurine, a central nervous system stimulant, and upwards of 50 grams of sugar per can (that’s 13 teaspoons worth!). The sweet stuff spikes blood sugar temporarily, only to crash soon after, leaving you sluggish and foggyheaded—and reaching for another energy drink.
4. TO IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP, SPEND LESS TIME TOGETHER
Jumping frrom one social event to another without any time to come up for air could sacrifice the quality of your relationships. Spending time alone allows you to process your thoughts rather than act impulsively and, as a result, you get to know yourself better. Alone time enables you to be more in touch with yourself and can better give and receive. In addition, it reduces stress and anxiety, which could also contribute to relationship strains. Meditate, go for a walk, sit in a café and people watch, or even clean out your closet.
