Celery Diet

Posted by editor On June - 13 - 2008

I’m digging more info on celery diet due to that confusing part of celery on my celebrity diet post last time which is commented by chikwendu. Some people refer to taking celery as giving you negative calories intake. Here’s more information on celery diet, whether you should go ahead on doing it or not, read more and find out:

Something you shouldn’t go on. Celery has next to no nutritional value… people eat celery because they actually get “negative” calories. Celery itself doesn’t contain many calories, and in the process of chewing the celery, you actually burn off more calories than you take in. If you’re thinking about dieting, diet sensibly with proportion control and adequate cardio.

The reason a celery diet works is because celery does not give you any nutrition but by digesting it you burn calories so you could call it a workout with out pain.

more to read:

Celery is much more than a traditional summer salad ingredient. Available throughout the year, a little research on celery shows this versatile vegetable has very real health benefits and is worth adding to your weekly diet.

Research has shown that celery contains blood pressure reducing properties. Celery contains active compounds called Pthalides which relax the muscles of the arteries that regulate blood pressure allowing these vessels to dilate. Pthalides also reduce stress hormones which can cause blood vessels to constrict.

Celery is an excellent source of Vitamin C with all its health benefits. Vitamin C can help to reduce cold symptoms or the severity of cold symptoms during the winter months. This important Vitamin helps to support the immune system and is a cold fighter!

Celery also provides fibre (see High Fibre Diet), and essential minerals such as Folacin and Potassium.

Nor surprising then that Celery has a long history of use, first as a medicine and then later as a food.

Celery can obviously be eaten on its own but is also a tasty addition to many cooked dishes: stir fry dishes, soups, stews and casseroles.

How to calm an “angry” wife?

Posted by editor On May - 22 - 2008

Calm angry wife

Women in general tend to be more emotional and reactive than men. Especially in a household, husband and wife can get entangled over issues of little or non-critical importance. Not only this is detrimental to the marriage and unnecessary stress, it can also leave you bitter with one another.

So the question is: “How could you calm an ‘angry’ wife?”

Apparently this is quite a common issue in husband and wife relationship, and here are some tips and suggestions to calm an “angry” wife:

Here goes the list:

  • wash the dishes
  • flowers
  • be kind and sweet to her. Apologize for any wrong doings.
  • just agree with her, even if you don’t, be calm yourself. Two angry people only is going to end up in a big mess. Once the situation is calmed down then approach her carefully and let her know how you really felt. Good Luck to you and God Bless
  • If she said ” leave me alone” LEAVE HER ALONE. Do not force her to talk by asking the same questions over and over. She may just answer. And you won’t like the answer. Give her space and let her be angry. It is ok and healthy to be mad. She will calm down when she is done being angry. ( It has taken me a couple of days to get over being mad at my husband) be patient.
  • When a woman is angry: run. Run like the wind. I am not kidding.
