Something Really Helpful For All Of Us!

I feel like sharing this here... Please read thoroughly.

We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it,and just popping it into our mouths. It's not so easy as you think.
It's important to know how, and when to eat fruits.
What is the correct way of eating fruits? IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS!
FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH. If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss, and other life activities. FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight to the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.In the meantime the whole meal rots, ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil. So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining - every time I eat watermelon I burp; when I eat 'durian' my stomach bloats-up; when I eat bananas, I feel like running to the toilet etc. Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying of the other food, and produces gas. Hence you will bloat! Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes... all these will not happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach. There is no such thing as fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did a research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the 'secret' of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness, and normal weight. When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT drink mixes in bottles or cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits, because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get the taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins. But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits, and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look! KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, Vitamin E & fiber. Its Vitamin C content is twice that of an orange. APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low Vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of Vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke. STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessels-clogging free radicals. ORANGE: Sweetest medicine. Taking 2 -4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer. WATERMELON: Coolest Thirst Quencher composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene - the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are Vitamin C & Potassium. GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for Vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high Vitamin C content.. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.
Drinking cold water after meal = Cancer! Can you believe this??? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.
It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down, and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats, and lead to cancer.
It is best to drink hot soup, HOT TEA or warm water after a meal. Serious notes for women on HEART ATTACKS:Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea, and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware.
The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

This is a very long over due blog I made for a friend having been with a terribly liar boyfriend which she loves blindedly... *Sigh!

10 Ways to Tell He’s Lying

We’re all guilty of a little white lie here and there, but when it comes to major dishonesty, there are a few telltale signs every woman should look for. Our experts help you separate the fibs from the facts.
by Ranya Fattouh

1. Your gut tells you something is wrong.

If you feel like something is off, it probably is. “It may not be exactly what your imagination is suggesting, but we don’t experience knots for no reason,” says Brenda Della Casa, author of Cinderella Was a Liar: The Real Reason You Cant Find (or Keep) a Prince.
Most women know they’re being lied to long before they actually admit it, but they don’t immediately act on their intuition. “Women tolerate a lot of excuses,” says comedian Steve Harvey, author of Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. “A guy that always has an excuse or lie as to why it didn’t happen, why it couldn’t happen, why it won’t happen, is no good.”

2. The details don’t add up.

“Generally, liars mess up and change a detail in their story,” says Ian Kerner, Ph.D., a New York City-based clinical sexologist.
Ask yourself: “Does this really make sense?” says Robert Feldman, author of The Liar in Your Life: The Way to Truthful Relationships. “Look beyond what he’s saying and try to be an objective observer of his behavior.”

3. He suffers from TMI (or TLI—that’s Too Little Information!).

Guys who lie tend to give too much information or keep very quiet—be cautious of both. “You know your guy and you know when he’s not acting like himself. If your guy is chatty and suddenly he’s not, something’s up. If your guy is very quiet and suddenly he’s giving you too many details, something’s up,” says Jenny Lee, coauthor of Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid.

4. He refuses to get personal.

Most people who are comfortable in a relationship are open to sharing details of their lives. If a guy is unusually distant and keeps almost everything about himself secret, he’s probably holding something back. “Don’t be fooled by a guy who says ‘that’s too deep; I don’t want to discuss that.’ Good guys will appreciate the depth of your questions; liars will run from them,” says Harvey .

5. He starts covering his tracks.

If your guy is constantly deleting his browser history or shutting down his e-mail, or if there are numerous occasions where it’s impossible to reach him, you might want to get out of there—fast. “If you’re with a guy who carries two cell phones, but one of them never rings, or if he only pays in cash or immediately heads for the shower when he gets home, those are all major red flags,” says Nancy Dreyfus, author of Talk to Me Like I’m Someone You Love: Relationship Repair in a Flash.

6. He’s super defensive.

“If you find that he pauses a lot when responding to your questions, becomes overly fidgety and defensive or can’t look you in the eye, be suspicious that he might not be telling you the truth,” says Kerner.

7. He repeats his story.

“Men tend to say the truth just once,” says Howard J. Morris, coauthor of Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid. “It’s the truth, after all. It doesn’t need to be repeated three times.”

8. He constantly blames you.

Although it’s natural for a guy to be a little testy when interrogated, if you notice that he’s always shifting the blame so that you look like the guilty party, question his motives. “If every concern you have gets twisted around and thrown back at you, he’s pulling a classic guilty-man move. Keeping you on the defensive keeps him out of trouble,” says Della Casa.

9. He has an answer for everything.

Watch out for excuses that are very buttoned up, a little too perfect and rehearsed. “If you find yourself making sense of something that doesn’t make sense or making exceptions, stop yourself,” says Dreyfus.

10. He makes the lies seem like no big deal.

Liars have an advantage because what they say is what we want to hear, and they know it. Even if he’s feeding you little lies that make you feel good about yourself, remember that they are lies. “It’s hard to constantly be thinking, Is this the truth, is this not the truth? Even if it seems innocent enough, someone who lies about little things is going to lie about big things,” says Feldman. “If you do stay in the relationship, rebuild trust slowly and be clear that if he lies again, it’s over.”

Its pretty easy to write, research and say something about the issues of the heart and the likes and dislikes of it. But personally, the real deal is YOU. All along after the summation of pain and with divine intervention, anything uncomfortable and tormenting isnt a good deal afterall. Yes we will learn something from all the odds we encounter in life but we constantly will have it each time. If things and relationship does not work and no one is willing to compromise to making things right. Then I must say, it has to be freed. Life is so good to be wasted. We can only live one day at a time. Happiness is still a choice.

Way to go Amiga!

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: A time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
There is really nothing that I would like to share today. No problems to ask for an advice from nor gossips to flare around. This is just one of those days that is tormenting enough that you do not know what you feel and you do not know what to think either. My friends call it "winter blues" though there ain't no snow or heavy rain involve. *wink.
Have you had days like this too? Its kind of frustrating how your focus and determination on something to wear off just like that, much more if you are aspiring for a long forgotten goal or wanting to accomplish an overdue i-need-to-do-this list. Some of my colleagues share the same emotion as I have too and I think I'm normal. LOL! I notice during this time that spiritual journey is also at its latency, people tend to just sit back on whatever they feel and withdraw themselves unto the One pruning them to be better. I must say I'm lucky when I have friends to tell me that " simba ra kulang ana" ( church visit ) when I feel "blue" though I go to church on Sundays.
But more than anything else these "winter blues" gave me so much gratification for the one responsible for my being because when I had these blues, it'll made me cry, it'll made me realize what are really important to me, it made me think what is there that needs to be done, and finally it'll just make me feel better after all those crying mode. Funny yet people never realize the goodness this will bring us.
So therefore I conclude that "winter blues" were made to set forth on going emotions and rekindle those which are soon to be gone. And that crying even for men isn't at all something we have to hide.
Cry if its necessary. Then smile! Celebrate life.

Closing Cycles

One always has to know when a stage comes to an end. If we insist on staying longer than the necessary time, we lose the happiness and the meaning of the other stages we have to go through. Closing cycles, shutting doors, ending chapters - whatever name we give it, what matters is to leave in the past the moments of life that have finished.
Did you lose your job? Has a loving relationship come to an end? Did you leave your parents' house? Gone to live abroad? Has a long-lasting friendship ended all of a sudden? You can spend a long time wondering why this has happened. You can tell yourself you won't take another step until you find out why certain things that were so important and so solid in your life have turned into dust, just like that.
But such an attitude will be awfully stressing for everyone involved: your parents, your husband or wife, your friends, your children, your sister, everyone will be finishing chapters, turning over new leaves, getting on with life, and they will all feel bad seeing you at a standstill.
None of us can be in the present and the past at the same time, not even when we try to understand the things that happen to us. What has passed will not return: we cannot for ever be children, late adolescents, sons that feel guilt or rancor towards our parents, lovers who day and night relive an affair with someone who has gone away and has not the least intention of coming back.
Things pass, and the best we can do is to let them REALLY GO AWAY.
That is why it is so important (however painful it may be!) to destroy souvenirs, move, give lots of things away to orphanages, sell or donate the books you have at home. Everything in this visible world is a manifestation of the invisible world, of what is going on in our hearts - and getting rid of certain memories also means making some room for other memories to take their place. Let things go. Release them. Detach yourself from them.
Nobody plays this life with marked cards, so sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Do not expect anything in return, do not expect your efforts to be appreciated, your genius to be discovered, your love to be understood. Stop turning on your emotional television to watch the same program over and over again, the one that shows how much you suffered from a certain loss: that is only poisoning you, nothing else.
Nothing is more dangerous than not accepting love relationships that are broken off, work that is promised but there is no starting date, decisions that are always put off waiting for the "ideal moment."
Before a new chapter is begun, the old one has to be finished: tell yourself that what has passed will never come back. Remember that there was a time when you could live without that thing or that person - nothing is irreplaceable, a habit is not a need. This may sound so obvious, it may even be difficult, but it is very important.
Closing cycles. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because that no longer fits your life. Shut the door, change the record,clean the house, shake off the dust. Stop being who you were, and change into who you are.
"Love is a commitment of the heart that will stand the test of wavering emotions, intellectual rationalizing, circumstantial allure, hormonal infatuation, and even the wounds of your lover. Anything less is not true love."

"Quarter-life Crisis."

They call it the "Quarter-life Crisis." It is when you stop going along With the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are right now.
You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.
You look at your job... and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.
Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure.
You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly,change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved so much could do such damage to you. Relationships have ended causing you to lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but also love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. At other times you are looking for that special guy or girl and don't even realize their right in front of you. One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap.
Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, and the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender!
What you may not realize is that everyone reading this relates to it. We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out.
