The best 4 Way to Deal With Boredom

Hey guys! It’s summer, so a lot of us are out of school. I’ve noticed I have a habit of getting bored and feeling unproductive when I’m on break, which really doesn’t help  anxiety/depression. I’ve learned a few things over the years to help myself get out of the rut.

1. Make Plans. Even going  to get coffee with a friend for 30 minutes can help me feel productive, and it gets me out of he house. Leaving the house is often half the battle.

2. Get Ready. I’ve found dressing somewhat nicely helps me to feel better in general. If hair and makeup  is your thing, doing beauty  tutorials off of Youtube is fun and time consuming (and gets your mind focused on something).

3. Clean out something. Cleaning things out really gets my mind on something and stops me from feeling gross like I do after a day of Netflix. It’s also nice because something gets done.

4. Go somewhere by yourself. Even just bringing my laptop to a coffee shop and going on Tumblr makes me feel better than doing it alone in my room. Also, I’m more likely to get work done (applications, emails, etc) if I’m not in my houseUntitled

Important Weight Loss Tips & Exapmles

Fact 1: Whether you lose weight or not depends almost entirely on whether you’re eating less calories than you need to maintain your weight. The number of calories needed to maintain your weight depends on your metabolism. Eating less calories than you need is called ‘calorie deficit.’

Example 1: If Jill has a 1500 calorie a day metabolism, then eating less than 1500 calories a day will usually make Jill lose weight, and eating more than 1500 calories a day will make Jill gain weight. If Jill eats 1200 calories in a day, Jill will have a 300 calorie deficit.

Fact 2: Your body has two main sources of stored energy; fat and glycogen. Glycogen is a form of carbohydrate, and it provides four calories per gram. It also soaks up more than its own weight in water. When you first start cutting calories (or carbs), you will consume your glycogen stores and they will steadily be diminished. This will cause rapid weight loss – which will continue for a few days (or over a week if you’re only cutting calories slightly). This rapid weight loss will give you a buzz of satisfaction – but very little actual body fat will be lost during this phase.

Example 2: If Jack weighs 75 kg and has a 2500 calorie a day metabolism, and his body has 500 grams of stored glycogen, and Jack cuts down to 1500 calories a day, then Jack will consume all of his glycogen stores within two days and lose 500 grams of stored carbohydrates and about a kilogram of water. After two days on diet, Jack will be down to 73.5 kg. But Jack will have just as much body fat as when he started, and when he starts eating more and his glycogen stores recover, he’ll put those 1.5 kg back on as soon as he’s gone 2000 calories over his maintenance intake.

Fact 3: Every kilogram of body fat has about 7700 calories. In other words, you have to burn 7700 calories more than you eat to lose a kilogram of body fat. And once your glycogen stores are eliminated, body fat will be your primary fuel source. This will make weight loss excruciatingly slow for people who expect the same results during prolonged dieting that they expected during the initial phase.

Example 3: Jack is still eating 1500 calories a day and is having a 1000 calorie a day deficit because he needs 1000 more to maintain. He’s eating 40% less food than he needs. But it’s going to take Jack nearly 8 days to get from 73.5 kg down to 72.5 kg, because that’s how long it will take for his 1000 calorie a day deficit to add up to 7700. Jack is only going to lose 130 grams of fat a day.

Fact 4: Most nutritionists recommend a calorie intake of 2000 a day for females and 2500 a day for males. This is arbitrary and based on averages; your need may be lower or higher.

Example 4: Jez has an eating disorder and regularly posts on MPA. Jez has a 4000 calorie a day metabolism, for reasons which he has never been able to ascertain, but he loses weight on anything less than 3700 a day and usually takes about 4300+ a day to gain anything. Jez burns 1500 calories a day more than an average adult male. However, Jez’s girlfriend only has a 1200 calorie a day metabolism, eats much smaller meals than he does, and burns 800 calories a day less than an average adult female. Both are atypical, but prove that there are extreme ends of both scales.

Fact 5: Once your glycogen deposits are depleted and it takes a 770 calorie deficit to lose 100 grams of fat, water and poop weight have more of an effect on your daily scale results than how much or how little you’re eating.

Example 5: Jane has a 1700 calorie a day metabolism, and she only ate 550 calories yesterday. She lost 150 grams of body fat, but drank about 200 grams more water than she peed out before weighing herself this morning. She also didn’t poop today, and has about 100 grams of poop in her digestive tract. So even after starving all day yesterday, Jane weighs 150 grams more on the scale. She is incredibly disappointed, and starts a thread on MPA asking what’s wrong.

Fact 6: Once you’ve depleted your fat stores, your body has one last ditch energy source to keep itself from shutting down; the protein that makes up your muscles and internal organs. This protein provides about 4 calories per gram – processed inefficiently – and carries water with it. At this point, weight loss once again becomes rapid and body tissues begin to waste away very quickly. Death usually occurs within a week or two unless calorie deficit ceases.

Example 6: Karen suffers from anorexia nervosa. Karen has a 1000 calorie a day metabolism, and is unable to eat due to the severity of her eating disorder. Karen ran out of stored fat tissue a week ago, and to provide her 1000 calories a day she has had to metabolise 250 grams a day of her own muscles and vital organs. Karen died today of heart failure because the tissues that made up her cardiac had been digested in lieu of food.

Please apply some of this information to your diets, avoid making too many unnecessary tip threads and consider the effects of long term starvation.

Smoothie Recipes For Everything

Smoothie Recipes For Everything infographic

Who knew that the solution to most our problems could be solved with a smoothie?! Smoothie Recipes For Everythinginfographic from Super Skinny Me gives you the ingredients and visually represents the amount of each that should put in. Trying to lose weight? Want to de-stress? Or maybe just want a bedtime drink. This infographic has it all.

Is there anything as versatile, adaptable and convenient as a smoothie? I doubt it. Nor are there many things as universally beloved.  Smoothies are scrumptious, indulgent concoctions that tickle the taste buds and, inexplicably, with every sip make you feel just a little bit happier and make the world a little bit friendlier. The smoothie is so much greater than the sum of it’s parts. And just to prove the smoothie can do no wrong, it can actually make you more awesome too.

Smoothies contain a smorgasbord of ingredients, and depending on what you throw in, smoothies can ascend from mere flavorsome delight and sweet-tooth satisfier to the dizzying heights of muscle-building, energizing, health-enhancing superdrink. Why eat just one superfood, when you can combine a load of goodness into one easily digestible drink? Plus, it’s super quick and absurdly easy to prepare, making it weirdly efficient not just nutritionally, but generally. Created in the 1940’s, but perfectly designed for 21st century living.

Smoothies can be tailored to suit your own needs. And while the flavors are virtually limitless, don’t just think about taste, but also why you’re making it. Do you want to lose weight or perhaps build muscle? Do you need a pick-me up or extra energy to power through an intense workout? Had a bad day and want to wind down? Or maybe you can’t get to sleep. With a little smoothie science, you can easily make a smoothie that doesn’t just taste good (or look pretty), but actually does something.

The major issue I have with this design is that the proportions visualized for each smoothie aren’t accurate to the recipe.  The sections are sized to fit the text, and have no relationship to the data.  Big mistake!

Also, the actual amounts of each ingredient aren’t shown.  The recipes are on the infographic landing page in the text portion, but aren’t included in the infographic itself.  The issue with infographics is that they need to include the complete information because they are shared all by themselves, without any accompanying description text.

THE SCIENTIFIC 7-MINUTE WORKOUT

The hour we usually spend at the gym is not that efficient. Sure we lift some weights and get in some cardio, but we also watch whatever is on TV, scroll around on our iPhones, and generally don’t push ourselves all that hard. Not only is this Scientific 7-Minute Workout quicker, you don’t need anything besides a chair and a wall to do it. Originally published in the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal, the workout is tough, but it’s also over in less time than it takes to even get to the gym in the first place. Each move should be done at a high intensity for 30 seconds with a 10 second break in between.
