Do It with Dukan Diet

Dukan diet is fast gaining grounds as one of the most effective diets to reduce weight. It was introduced by French dietician Pierre Dukan, from which the name of the diet was derived. In 2010, Dukan published his book I Don’t Know how to Get Slimmer, which chronicles his years of research in dietetics and nutrition. Ultimately, his book introduced the Dukan Diet in the general public. That was when the popularity of the Dukan Diet came into a jumpstart.

In a short period of time, Dukan Diet has already gained a huge following from diet aficionados. This is because this diet follows a systematic process which is easy to follow and does not need detailed understanding. Some people found the principles of the Dukan Diet very easy to grasp, thus very ideal for people who just don’t want to crack their head on plain things such as dieting. Moreover, Dukan Diet is perhaps the most “considerate” form of diet because it allows the consumption of a large variety of foods, unlike it some diet plans, which restrict their followers to few, sometimes unflattering, foods.

Dukan Diet has four phases: Attack Phase, Cruise Phase, Consolidation Phase, and Stabilization Phase. These phases are strategically designed to make sure that Dukan Diet followers gain weight the fastest, easiest and safest way.

In the Attack Phase, followers see a rapid loss of weight. Some followers reduced 2 to 3 kilograms from their weight after only a week. Some even report that they have lost 10 pounds in just a week! How is this done? Followers are allowed to eat only protein-rich foods. The plan provides a list of 72 foods which followers can only consume during the Attack Phase.

In the Cruise Phase, 32 more foods are added in the list of consumable foods by diet followers. Slight weight increase may be observed in this phase. Also, followers must now adhere to a stricter diet pattern which includes a schedule for protein food and fiber food consumptions.

The third phase, Consolidation Phase, is said to be the most crucial phase, because followers may gain weight rapidly if not proper diet is followed. Slowly by slowly, followers are allowed to consume previously forbidden food such as bread and cheese. Followers are also allowed to eat whatever they want (called Celebratory meals) on two occasions a week.

The last phase, Stabilization Phase, provides the diet plan followers must stick to for the rest of their lives. This includes the consumption of 3 tablespoons of oat bran per day, and one pure-protein meal per week. But of course, in this phase, followers are allowed to eat whatever food they want, provided they also consume the aforementioned diet. In this phase, followers must use the stairs as frequently as possible to avoid gaining weight.


More Than a Five Star Resort

Every now and then we feel the urge to get away for a while and recharge our batteries, away from the stress and anxiety of big cities. Very often we are overwhelmed with regret upon returning home and wish that we could have lingered for just a bit longer. Extending a vacation is one of the few dreams that people share, but for a select few this can turn them into reality for an undefined period of time. These are the ones who chose Cresswind At Lake Lanier as their getaway and purchased a property in one of the best active-adult communities in the country.

Conveniently located close to Lake Lanier, this place is the perfect place for active people who want to live the good life. Whether you prefer to play tennis, swim in large pools or simply take long walks in a beautiful area, this community is going to meet and exceed expectations.

Focus on the Return on Investment

Many people are assuming that if they are in need of a lawyer, losing something is inevitable and the only thing that can be done is to minimize the losses. It is of course only a misconception, but this doesn’t mean that self representation or hiring a rookie are good choices. North Palm Beach Estate Litigation lawyers are intimately familiar with the various circumstances that define these cases and know how to tackle them.

Most of the obstacles can be easily overcome, by a specialist who has dealt with similar cases in the past. Clients should pay attention to the manner in which they narrow down the search, because estate litigation is a rather broad area. Fiduciary removal and Surcharge, accounting disputes, will and trust contests and inheritance rights are just a few of the issues that can define the state litigation cases. For each case, there are multiple tactics and strategies that can be used for either defending or prosecuting.

Before jumping to conclusions and letting alleged high fees have a deterring effect on them, clients should schedule an appointment and contemplate all their options. The attorneys can suggest various fee arrangements, so that the initial expenses are kept in check and clients can enjoy the best defense. At the end of the day what really matters is the return on investment and with the stakes being as high as they are in estate litigation cases, the lawyers fee should be among the last concerns.

The Wonders of Cupping

Last week, I came across a very unique method of treatment. I went to a local spa only to have my feet pampered and treated, but then when I saw one of the spa masseurs using what I sensed were pieces of glass cups, I immediately got my nose into what I sensed as something interesting. I inquired about the treatment, and after a series of chitchat with the spa personnel, I learned that the unique treatment is called cupping.

And so, curious as I am, I surfed the Internet and researched about this treatment. And the more I learned about cupping, the more I got thrilled at trying this treatment on my next visit to the spa. So here is what I found about this exciting and unique method of treatment called cupping.

Originating from the Oriental Medical tradition, cupping is a century-old medical treatment that employs the use of cups made of thick glass (but plastic, bamboo, iron and clay-made cups are also used), and heat, which is derived from small candles or other flammable materials like cotton balls soaked in alcohol.

The small candles are placed in specific parts of the body. They are then lit up until the flames are strong. Next, the cups are turned upside down to cover the candles. You will then notice that the skin rise up until the flames died.

This is because this treatment works as a vacuum which sucks the skin up inside the cup. While this sounds very horrific, this method is very safe and painless. Sucking the skin up does a lot of health benefits for the body: it opens up pores to release toxins out from the body, it regulates and stimulates blood flow, and it balances the body’s qi, or in Chinese’s tradition, the energy innate in our body.

This method is said to target the body’s ‘meridians’, which are the channels throughout the body where energy immensely flows to reach every body organ and tissues. These meridians are located on the back, that’s is why cupping is usually done in that body part.

This method is said to cure different ailments, including headache, dizziness, asthma, bronchitis, flatulence, abdominal pain, arthritis, and congestion. Cupping is also used to treat patients suffering from depression and other psychological disorders.

Cupping is made more relaxing and enjoyable with the use of herbal oils and medicated oils. The fragrance from these oils surely completes the healing experience cupping provides to our body.


Save Twice When Buying a Car

It is never a good time to purchase a new vehicle when you have outstanding debts, and that’s why many people postpone this investment. The problem is that while they wait for better times to come, they spend a small fortune on keeping their old vehicles on the roads. Local autos online can help them make the right thing without spending a lot by providing them with a comprehensive list of new and used cars.

Those who land on their website will discover with satisfaction that the inventory includes some of the most popular domestic brands as well as exquisite import cars. It is only natural for those who want to purchase an exotic brand to pay considerably more than those with lower ambitions, but all of their customers enjoy a generous instant rebate. Those who are wondering how it works, should know that the 3% discount is applied to all the cars and all it takes is taking the brochure to the dealer or present him with the pricing information on the smartphone.

3% might not sound like a lot, but when you put things into perspective it is obvious that clients can save as much as $1000 with no strings attached. Those who have no misconceptions against purchasing a used car can save twice, because the sheer price of such vehicles is significantly lower. The advantage of working with registered dealers is that you can rest assured that the car you acquire is in good shape even if it had the previous owner.

Totally Tapas

Tapas, pinchos, banderillas, raciones, pulguitas, montaditos, cazuelitas. Before you think that those words are just the mere words you learn in Spanish 101, let me tell you that they are more than that. They are more delicious than what you think. Those words (yes, they’re Spanish words, so you’re right there) are just some of the most well-loved snacks from Spain. These are bite-sized foods, which are usually eaten with drinks such as beer or wine. They can all be collectively called as tapas alone.

Tapas is a favorite snack among our Hispanic friends, but it is just too good not to be shared to the whole country-nay, the whole world!

Tapas is a very interesting snack that gains the approval of every member of the family-from kids who get attracted by the snack’s colorfulness, to the grandparents who enjoy it because they can easily chew and bite it (read as dentures). This makes tapas really a food for the family, and thus is an ideal serving during family gatherings and occasions.

Practically, everything can make a good ingredient for tapas. However, the most-loved tapas is the one with tuna chunks and olives. Not only are these ingredients very delicious, they are also healthier ingredients that pork or beef.
Tapas also comes with sumptuous sauces and dips. These can be anything from simple tomato sauce to vinegar sauce to gravy. Sometimes, it’s the sauce which makes the snack more interesting and worth having a munch on.

As this snack became more popular, more recipes were also developed. But the classic tapas recipes would always be Spanish omelettes. These are omelettes in small-servings, which usually comes with a vinegar dip spiced with onions and pepper.

But tapas has now become more green, as vegetarian recipes are introduced. There is Patatas Bravas, which boasts of spicey fried potato sliced with matching brava sauce. There is also Stuffed Tomato Tapas, which are tomatoes creatively stuffed with delicious fillings. But vegetarians will surely love Green Asparagus with Salmon, which has the good mix of sweetness from fresh asparagus stalks and of saltiness from baked salmons.
