Instead of eating Ice Cream eat Sherbet

Instead eat Sherbet as it has a fruit juice base but often contains some milk, egg whites or gelatin to thicken and richer it. It's a creamy version of sorbet. Very delicious on your lips, as ice cream consist of lots of fat and it is too hot for ice cream, it would add more weight gain on you. So say No to ice cream.

Beware of white sugar

Cut back on your sugar especially white sugar. Avoid it as much as possible it is not good for your heart and liver. Once you must have sugar use brown sugar and very little. I do not use sugar in my hot milk, cold milk, hot tea or hot coffee. Also cut back on your sweet tooth cakes which consist of sugar.

Helping others

I sometime would meet over weight people and I would strike up a conversation, then get straight to point and ask 'Do you mind if I could you some advice on weight loss?' Sometime they say 'Yes' and sometime 'No'. Once the answer is 'Yes" I would tell them what I am doing and the way I cook my meals. People are glad and seeking advice when it comes to weight loss and eating healthy. You should try it especially in the Supermarkets.

Get More Sleep

When there is no electrical power, you can't do much without a generator. So go to bed early and take advantage of the extra sleep you can get. Your body need it, so when you get into bed you will fall asleep quickly. That is when I had been going the last two nights without electrical power. I used lanterns and candles., but still got lots of sleep. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Dessie.

Get as much sleep as possible

Part of staying healthy is getting lots of sleep. I try to get a nap each day. Once you can't get enough sleep during the night, make sure you get some sleep during the day. Even if you intended for it to be a nap and it ended up being a sleep. It is better. Getting you sleep renews you mind and you are able to think better. emoticon emoticon

Drink water and eat fresh fruits

With the heat wave remember to keep drinking your water and eating lots of fresh watered fruits. I eat lots of watermelon, dew melon, cantaloupes and drink more than 12 glasses of water daily. You will feel better emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Staying busy

Once you are at home always find something to do inside or outside of your home. Stay active and don't be a TV couch potato.

Drink lots of water and stay cool.

Due to this heat wave which we are experiencing, it is best to drink lots of water and stay cool. Avoid soda as much as possible. Water will quench your thirst, but soda will make you thirsty. Go for that big glass or bottle of water.
