See the coolest facts about weight loss
The chewing diet
During the 19th century, a diet called “Fletcherism” became popular. Introduced by the American Horace Fletcher (“The Great Chewer”), the diet prompted chewing a lot of food at least 32 times, or until they turned into liquid. He argued that his method of eating could help people avoid diseases and lose weight. Even the King of Rock had his diet.
Elvis Presley was a famous fan of the “Sleep Beauty Diet,” or a diet where a person is sedated for days. The rationale behind the diet was that a sleeping person could not eat.
Better brain activity
Losing weight alters brain activity. For example, after following a weight-loss program for 6 months, women achieved better memory test results. The research also linked obesity to poor memory, especially in obese, pear-shaped women.
And so, they are replaced.
Fat cell lives for about 7 years. When a fat cell dies, a new one grows to replace it. The body keeps track of how many fat cells it has, as well as the amount of fat in each cell. If fat cells are removed by liposuction, for example, the body compensates by growing new fat cells in other areas of the body.
The danger of inflammation
Obesity has been linked to several types of cancer. Specifically, being overweight cause’s inflammation that causes cellular changes in the body. However, only by losing 5% of your body weight can significantly reduce the dangerous levels of inflammation.

The 100 types of fat

There is no better aid.
In the first half of the 20th century, cigarette manufacturers regularly promoted their products as a weight-loss aid.
Studies in twins
Studies conducted on twins reveal that fat cells in a heavier twin underwent metabolic changes, which made it more difficult for it to burn fat. Even earning as little as 11 pounds slows down a person’s metabolism – which, in turn, leads to even more weight gains.
Be more “relax”
Stress can make it difficult to lose weight. Stress hormones can also increase fat storage. In addition to physical exercise, relaxation techniques can help control weight.
Get out of bed and go to sleep.
Sleep deprivation can make it harder to lose weight. Inadequate sleep disrupts a person’s hormonal balance, which lowers leptin (a hormone that makes a person feel full) and increase Ghrelin (which triggers hunger). Scientists argue that getting enough sleep is the cheapest and easiest obesity medicine, there is.

According to the National Institute of Health Clinical Center, people who slept in a room at 18 ° C burned 7% of calories during sleep than those who slept in a warmer room. The colder sleepers burned more calories probably because their bodies were working harder to maintain a stable body temperature of 37 °.

If you have not taken the flu vaccine, then you may want to read our article. As Influenza viruses are everywhere, we tell you what to do so your paths will never cross.
Basic, simple rule for the whole family to comply with: when you get home, after taking off and undressing ‘street clothes’, you should wash your hands with soap and water. This remains the most effective way to prevent microbes that are harmful to our health from spreading (in and out of the house).
If someone gets sick at home, they should ‘isolate’ the area of contamination and avoid contacting with other family members, share towels, dishes, cutlery, toys. Influenza viruses can survive for 24 to 48 hours on metal and plastic surfaces and about 12 hours on tissues.
Always wash your hands with soap and water whenever you cook or clean the dishes in the cupboards.
Sleeping at recommended times and eating healthily (zinc-rich foods, for example – shellfish and vitamin C help fight infections) are also weapons that strengthen our immunity.
Flu Escape Plan
In public places
You have to worry especially about the closed places, where many people circulate, such as commercial centers (crowded at this time of year) and public transport. Be careful where you put your hands (do not take them to your face) and the sneezing and coughing around you. Do like the Japanese, use mask to minimize the risk of contagion. Be careful with handshakes because the habit of sneezing or coughing inside the elbow has not caught on and what most do is cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough … by hand. Multibanks are also a breeding ground for microbes, not to mention money.
Did you know that supermarket trolleys, and baskets are dirtier than many bathrooms? A study done in the USA showed that they may have, in addition to influenza viruses, salmonella bacteria, E. coli and even … fecal bacteria. This has made many supermarkets put disinfectant products at the disposal of their customers. The next time you go shopping, take an antibacterial spray or a disinfectant wipes to help get rid of unwanted germs.
Reduced care in the lounges of the airports and airplanes, especially with the trays, support to the arms, and bags where the magazines are kept. Carrying disinfectant wipes to clean your space may be a good idea, and you even have to wash your hands before mealtime. Remember that influenza viruses remain active 24 to 48 hours on metal and plastic surfaces and up to 12 hours on tissues.
In the pediatrician’s office
It is not by chance that many people say that they go into the hospital or health center with a health problem and leave with two. In the colder months during the year, there are probably more viruses per square meter. Do not be ashamed to wear a mask, and if you go to a pediatric office remember that the toys that are there have been handled by countless children. Take your favorite stuffed animal home (and then wash it in the machine). Take your pen (in case you fill something) and also your magazine ACTIVA so you do not have to get close to the pile that is in the office.
Attention to door knobs, keyboards, the microwave, the coffee machine … and the tons of germs there. Whenever you leave the toilet, do not touch the handle without protecting your hands on a piece of paper.
In the gym
Doing exercise strengthens the immune system, but beware: if your gym does not give you a towel you should bring it from home to put it on the devices, you have to play. To clean sweat use another, so there is no transfer of the microbes from the towel to your face … which is the half way to get sick. Ever try to use tennis players’ wrists to wipe away sweat? And remember to drink lots of fluids. Bring a bottle of the house, do not fill the water dispenser because there is someone who touches the bottleneck of the bottle of the water, and guesses where the germs are from the mouths of other people.

If there is a post-vacation regret, your hair knows what it is: leaving the care with the wires aside and just remembering them on the way, home brings a lot of problems. Greenish tonality, dryness, dandruff and even hair losses are some of the effects brought about by inattention to beauty. The salt and sand on the beach, besides the chlorine in the swimming pool and the most frequent washes do away with the wires. If you are looking for a recipe to reverse the havoc of days away from home, take advantage of tips from hairdressers and dermatologists and enjoy yourself without a crisis the rest of the season.
The greenish appearance of the strands is typical of those who spend their summer in the pool. The risk increases even more when the hair is dry – more porous, it absorbs the chemicals present in the water. Maria Aldenir from Nuance Beauty Salon recommends shampoos and conditioners with violet pigment that neutralize the greenish and protect the wires from oxidation. “It is also important to make hydrations every ten days, to mitigate the effect,” he says. And abandon the idea of dying your hair to hide the green. “The dye does not remove the chemicals that have damaged the hair. It will only dry out even more. Hydration remains the best solution.”
A tip from the colorist Juha Antero, from MG Hair Salon, in São Paulo, is to wet his hair in the shower just before entering the pool, without applying any type of product. “That way, your hair will already be saturated with water when you enter the pool, reducing the absorption of water and chlorine and making the effects less harmful.”
Just like the skin, the scalp suffers from sun exposure and becomes red, sore and may even peel. Although it is more common in bald people, the incident also happens with those who have very little hair or very thin strands. The dermatologist Cristiane Dal Magro, of the Renova Clinic, reinforces the need for hats or caps, as well as capillary products with sunscreen. “If the skin is already damaged and peeling, products based on calamine, a soothing and refreshing substance can be used,” he says. In more severe cases, with very intense redness or blistering, the best thing to do is to seek a dermatologist.
Waste sand, salt and chlorine
You’ve probably had trouble combing your hair after spending a lot of time on the sea or in the pool. This is because the wires absorb the typical waste of summer – such as pool chlorine, beach sand and sea salt.
Before anything else, you need to wash your hair with fresh water as soon as you get out of the water, taking as much waste out and leaving the lavage during the bath easier – you can take a bottle of fresh water from the house for this or use the shower’s community policies.
According to the hairdresser Maria Aldenir, the anti-solid shampoo is indicated for weekly use in these cases. “You can also use a specific post-sun shampoo, which eliminates chlorine and sodium chloride residues, balances the hair’s natural pH and protects the color and lightness of the hair,” says the hairdresser. It approves the daily use with the product.
Although the sea water also leaves the wires dry, the pool is the biggest cause of this effect, because of the chemistry used for the treatment of water. Constant contact with chlorine and other compounds in the pool weakens the hair, leaving them dry and even brittle.
Dermatologist Carolina Ferolla of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology says that the ideal hair protection is to hydrate with silicone-based products before the season into the pool, forming a film that protects the hair against chlorine damage.
“The use of leave-in, with UV factor and active moisturizing, prevents hair dryness during the summer,” says hairdresser Maria Aldenir. However, if they are already dry, make a weekly moisturizing program in the salon or at home and apply non-rinse cream after bathing.
Sweating increases during the summer and with it may appear seborrhea and dandruff. Hair damp for longer and waste products left in the threads also contribute – a lot! – for that table. According to Maria Aldenir, good hygiene prevents and helps in treatment. “Exfoliation of the scalp and massage with ampoules of vitamins, which renew and strengthen the region, eliminates dandruff, redness and itching,” says the hairdresser.
She also says that these treatments return the natural defenses of the strands and strengthen the hair bulb, avoiding the fall. Just avoid doing it at home, at the risk of further damaging your hair – talk to your hairdresser and visit a dermatologist if the problem persists.
The hair loses its structure when it is wet, making the wires more malleable. “This is why binding the wet wires ends up marking the region where the elastic band or the bandage passes. If this happens several times in the same place, the hair tends to break,” says the hairdresser. Another negative effect of holding on to damp hair is lacked of glow – when they get stuck dry, they look dull, lifeless. Furthermore, avoid locking the hair right after the brush – it is over-extended and may break more easily.
Wind, heat and humidity are common summer situations and are the biggest cause of frizz, especially in curly or curly hair. Maria Aldenir says that the recipe to avoid this drama is simple: keep the wires hydrated and do not let go of the leave-in, which protects the hair against sun damage and moisture.
