FOOD-THE BODY'S FUEL

Along with rest and relaxation, a nutritious diet is one of the essential sources of fuel the body requires to maintain optimum health. On the never-ending quest to eat right, most people set out with the best intentions, only to discover that, after weeks of cutting out the foods they love, excess body weight is not disappearing as quickly as desired. Most people have every reason to fear the word "diet". "People equate the word "diet" with deprivation. That's not a good motivator" says John P Foreyt, author of Living Without Dieting. Complicated weight loss strategies do not work. Nutritionists universally agree that the most effective weight-loss plan, and the most beneficial strategy for the body, is to personally develop lifelong healthy eating habits.
"Trends in nutrition come and go", adds Teresa Hale. "What's more, nutritional science can often contradict itelf". Hale's advice is sound and simple. "'The im…

HEALTHY BREAKFAST

OATMEAL: Easily digestible, oatmeal is also a good source of fibre.

CEREAL: High-fibre varieties of cereal can help to prevent constipation and, according to some doctors, they may also prevent cancer.


HALF-FAT OR SKIMMED MILK: Both types of milk are a rich source of vitamin D, calcium and protein.


FRESH FRUIT: Low in calories but high in vitamins, fruit contains a good source of soluble fibre. Fruit can also help to satisfy a sweet tooth in place of chocolate.


JUICE: Choose tomato and vegetable juices, as they are the best nutritional options. Low in calories, vegetable juice also provides vitamins A and C.


WATER: Drinking two glasses of water in the morning before a meal will wake up and rehydrate the body. But try to drink water consistently throughout the day and not just in the morning.


YOGURT: Choose either a plain or low-fat yogurt. A good source of calcium and protein, as well as a natural bacteria, yogurt helps to aid your digestive system.



STRESS &THE BODY

Everyone suffers from stress, but stress not necessarily have to be a negative factor. 
In the form of mental presure, stress can be a powerful force. It can be a motivator-urging us to carry out tasks or conquer problems and achieve certain goals in our lives. Ignoring stress, however, will lead to feelings of tension and fatigue. 

Chronic psychological stress can increase the chance of developing a number of harmful conditions, including migraine headaches, digestive disorders and impaired memory. Depression, premenstrual tension, sleep disorders and weight fluctuations are other possible side effects of unresolved stress

HOW TO CONQUER STRESS
Overcome stress should be the first step towards improving the body. Take some time out and begin to think about the sources of any stress and agitation in your life. Before jumping to conclusions or blaming other people or things, think positively. Look for solutions that could help to resolve the stress. Try to approach each day with a positiv…

BEAYTY&FASHION

Fashion is cyclical. Like economics and the weather, it is in perpetual motion hitting new highs and lows almost daily. The relationship between fashion and beauty is intrinsic. It always has been. 
 When Cecil Beaton, Horst P Horst and Irving Penn began photographing young models for the pages of Vogue in the 1950s, they knew instinctively that the look of elegance, refinement and chic they were after was not going to come from the clothes alone. 
The models were chosen for their elegant lines; they were not painfully thin, nor were they overtly sexual.
 Hair was always discreet and never daring enough to upstage the clothes. Make-up was artfully painted: the lips and nails rich and glossy, the complexion pale and powdered and the eyes carefully defined. Imagine those models in the same clothes, but the hair and the make-up of another era-perhaps with flat, matt panstick, Biba blackberry lips and huge painted eyelashes, or even extreme 1980s punk make-up. Would it have worked? Of cou…
