Meal Prep

DIY Meal Prep for Weight Loss

by healthguru
If you’re anything like me, then you have a very busy lifestyle. That busy lifestyle cycle is also the single biggest detriment to keeping my weight loss plan intact. It is for this reason that I began focusing on meal prep. Regardless of how well you try to plan and schedule meals, a busy lifestyle will find a way to interfere with that schedule; business meetings run over, errands on the way home cause more delays, last minute corrections that cannot wait until the following day, etc. Rather than keep the diet plan and schedule intact, we run out and […]
9 Natural Beauty Tips

9 Natural Beauty Tips Every Woman Should Try

by healthguru
The beauty and cosmetics industry would have you believe that there aren’t any natural beauty products available. How do we know this? Because the entire beauty and cosmetics industry is a $300-billion-a-year mega-empire. This is because of advertising. Through advertising the cosmetics industry entices women around the world into purchasing products that do more harm to their skin than good. Yes, they might make you more aesthetically appealing right now, but the chemical contents of beauty products may not be so healthy for our skin in the long term. This amounts to a brainwashing campaign that suggests women need to […]

in News
We have known for quite some time that fish is rich in vitamins and Omega-3 fatty acids, and that fish is therefore considered healthier than red meat. The science behind our food suggests that eating fish keeps our heart and brain healthy and functioning properly. New studies now suggest that the consumption of fish may also be beneficial to weight loss. Scientists in Japan working with fish oil have recently discovered that it has an active role in converting cells that store fat into cells that burn fat. This might also have long term benefits in battling obesity as fat-burning […]

11 Home Remedies Our Grandparents Used

by healthguru
When I was younger my father was in the military, which meant we often traveled “home” for the holidays. It was on one of these trips to visit the grandparents that I got sick. Fortunately for me, my grandmother grew up on a homestead way out in the sticks; she knew more about natural remedies than most doctors did about western medicine. Grandma quickly took to the task of making me feel better. Although I do not remember much of the ordeal, I’ve been told that I was unconscious and burning up with fever shortly after we arrived; half a […]

We recommend using it for this purpose, or immediately before making a complete transition from OTC hair care products to DIY designs.

Every day we are inundated with advice from health-wise professionals on what we should be eating, what food groups should be in our diet plans, which exercises will benefit us the most, how bad somethings are for us, etc. For several years, doctors and “good food” gurus have advised the rest of the world to discard chicken skin, before eating the chicken itself.
