Managing weight ia as important as loosing weight.

Hi All

The world has recently grown into a twist of "healthy eating and weight lose". However, lots of different ideas have been evolving the system. The question here is, how achievable is this?
Weight loss is not an issue to starve, or to live a boring life. It is a "get up" and get your life back. Hence managing the weight gives you a whole new focus.

The cons of weight management makes me think it's therapeutic. This can be achieved in various; for instance Zomba, swimming, daily walks and mostly keeping tab of your intakes; eating what your body needs and more filling meals in small portion and often.

The idea of weight loss and managing weigh is not strictly for the good looks, it helps promote healthier lifestyle and prevents of most of the chronic health conditions. Relaxing regularly is a good therapy to build resilience towards craves and unnecessary urges to snack.

This may not be easy, a lot of hard work is required, but the three main things to help with weight loss and management are:

Building your metabolism; early breakfast and early dinners

Understanding food components; check the label, more fiber and and less carb.

Avoiding temptation; excessive snacking

Lets keep it going.

How stress can affect the unborn child: Pregnant women should be protective of their foetus

Being pregnant can be a thing of joy when you are ready for it. Whether married, in partnership, in a relationship, single or cohabiting, expecting a baby can add pressure to the relationship. How you handle this pressure would determine how the stress would affect you and the baby you are carrying.

Research has shown that a pregnant mother's stress can affect a foetus as early as 17 weeks old. This may sound stale, but how is this being put into consideration in relationships? The decision of making babies must be jointly don that way the couple are ready of the challenges when it comes. There would be no reason to back out and leave one party to carry on the responsibility.

The future and health of the baby would determine the structure of your family; compromising their health that early would mean compromising your family's joy and happiness. This is simple; a healthy mother produces a healthy child and health household.

Stress in pregnancy could lead to accumulated poor health conditions such as insufficient child development; hearing loss, cognitive impairment, delayed speech and more. Therefore this explain the connection between a mum and her foetus.

From my point of view, planning pregnancies could be a step closer to prevent early trauma in a child.

Let's say "NO" to trauma in early pregnancy and in pregnancy as a whole.
