Nutrition for Your Hair

Is your hair getting a healthy, well balanced diet?  Enough water, vitamins, minerals and proteins to keep it growing strong, without breaking, falling out or splitting?  

In order to be at its best, your hair needs a good selection of vitamins to add strength and shine.  Proteins, such as keratin are part of the natural structure of your hair as well.  Protein gives it strength and bounce, prevents if from becoming stretchy or rubbery and also helps your hair grow properly.  Water stops your hair from becoming brittle and prone to breakage.  

If you notice your hair is thinning, breaking or falling out more than a few strands at a time, it could be a sign that your hair diet is not right.  Of-course, lack of nutrition in your hair usually indicates a deficiency for the rest of your body too.  

A good way to balance the needs of your hair is by adding a multi-vitamin to your daily routine.  Your hair and your body will benefit from Vitamins B & A.  It also needs minerals such as zinc, magnesium and calcium to help it grow.  

Protein comes from a wide variety of sources.  The most common is meat, but you can also find protein in fruits and vegetables.  Kiwi fruits are a great source of protein as well as Vitamin C.  Many dairy products are also high in protein.  It's the protein in your diet that give your hair the majority of its strength.  Lack of protein is usually evident in thin or damaged hair, or an abundance of hair loss.  

Drinking lots of water every day, or eating foods with high water content is also great for your hair.  Just like the rest of your body, hydration balance is extremely important for your hair.  Lacking this, your scalp will become dry and attempt to compensate by producing sebum, a naturally occuring oil designed to hydrate and protect your hair.  Not drinking enough water can cause this gland to overproduce, leaving you with oily hair.  

Providing proper nutrition to your hair is important to keep it growing strong and healthy and prevent hair loss.  Visit your doctor to be tested for a vitamin deficiency if you can't get your hair in good shape, as this is often a sign of undernourishment.

Attention – Massive Fasting Weight Lost on Intermittent Fasting Program!

Attention - Massive Fasting Weight Lost on Intermittent Fasting Program!

The combined intermittent fasting weight lost over the centuries far outstrips all other forms of diet combined! Can this be true? You bet it can! Not to mention that the weight lost on a proper fasting diet is just the icing on the cake of the most enjoyable and effective diet on the planet.

Intermittent fasting for weight loss has been around as long a man...and way beyond all other modern formal and complicated diets came into being.

You see, until the 20th century, people practiced intermittent fasting all their lives. Why? Because they had to hunt for their food. Food was not always readily available like it is today. In early times, the hunters would catch their food, everyone would eat well for a while, then the hunters would go out and catch some more. Until they brought home more food they would live off the fat on their bodies (while they fasted) as they waited for more food. Of course they were slimmer and healthier than our overfed overweight society is today.

I believe that our natural biology was not designed to have food consistently; therefore intermittent fasting is a very natural and healthy way to diet.

However, many people believe that fasting is a bad way to try to lose weight. Why is this? Because long-term fasting simply is not a good weight-loss approach...but we are not talking about long-term fasting. We are talking about the fasting weight lost by intermittent short-term fasting.

Long-term fasting is not sustainable over a lifetime, is very hard to endure, and will slow down your metabolism, causing you to gain your weight back (usually plus some) when you start eating again. Short-term intermittent fasting, done properly, has none of these negative characteristics.

Fasting properly will not only keep your metabolism up for efficient fat burning, but it will help your body to cleanse itself of toxins.

What happens is that you fast for a short period, which causes a huge calorie deficit, and then you eat what you enjoy for a period of days.

Doing this will cause you to burn more calories than you take in, thus you will lose weight while enjoying all your favorite foods.

The fasting weight lost on a proper fasting diet is the icing on the cake of the most pleasurable and affective diet on the planet. This system can be enjoyed and sustained for life without becoming bored with it.

Combine intermittent fasting with a good exercise program and you have the perfect, weight loss system. But it must be done correctly, which actually is very simple to do. If done correctly you will have no trouble maintaining your exercise regime.

Once you learn more about intermittent fasting and weight loss, you will be amazed at how easily, inexpensively, and pleasurably they work together.
