Low Carb Dieting Tip
Your rate of metabolism dictates how many calories you burn. Heredity, gender, age, body size. diet and nutrition, activity level, and your overall health factor in on determining how high or low your metabolism is. It is normal for metabolism levels to lower as a person ages. Because of this it is important to begin stepping up your exercise routines in your thirties and forties.

Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

Eat Regularly - Eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day will give you energy throughout the day--helping you to burn calories. Whereas, calories eaten during larger meals tend to get stored as fat.
Maintain a Balanced Diet - Not only how often you eat is important, but your food choices are equally as important. Nurture you body with the appropriate balance of protein and carbs.

Eating whole foods rather than processed food gives your digestive system a workout that burns calories. For example: choose an apple over apple juice.
Workout with Weights - Building muscle mass will replace stored fat. As you build muscle tissue your metabolism increases.
Don't Forget Cardio - You need to get that heart rate up and breathe a little heavier. Twenty to thirty minutes of cardiovascular activity 5 days a week is recommended. Brisk walking or swimming are good. Or utilize exercise equipment (exercise bike, treadmill, or elliptical trainer)
Fruits and vegetables are clearly an important part of a good diet. Almost everyone can benefit from eating more of them, but variety is as important as quantity. No single fruit or vegetable provides all of the nutrients you need to be healthy. The key lies in the variety of different fruits and vegetables that you eat.
Some basic fruit and vegetable tips:
•Try to eat more fruits and vegetables. If you need 2,000 calories a day to maintain your weight and health, aim for at least nine servings (4½ cups) a day.
•Choose a variety of different fruits and vegetables. It's easy to get into a rut when it comes to the food you eat. Break out and try a wider variety - include dark-green, leafy vegetables; yellow, orange, and red fruits and vegetables; cooked tomatoes; and citrus fruits.  (+ info)

How can you tell if someone has Munchausen Syndrome?

I have a friend who is constantly complaining about irrational things, she always thinks that she's sick and the only thing she will talk about (besides the complaining) are her doctors. Is it possible that she has Munchausen Syndrome?
I forgot to add that she deliberately causes harm to herself and tries to makes people think it's from some sort of physical ailment. She's always diagnosing herself with random diseases or conditions.

Munchausens isn't necessarily making someone else ill - if you make someone else ill, it's actually munchausens by proxy. I did a bit of research a while back because I'm convinced this girl displays symptoms of it - she's always in and out of hospital for something, but oddly enough seems fine the rest of the time. Plus she's a renowned liar anyway.
Your friend needs help, but are you positive that she doesn't have any of things she says she does? I wouldn't say abandon her - she's obviously troubled and needs your support. It could be Munchausens, but it could be something less complex like depression or an anxiety disorder. Obviously only a doctor would be able to assess her properly.  (+ info)

How long would Guillain–Barré syndrome take to show up in someone after an injection?

How long would Guillain–Barré syndrome take to show up in someone after an injection?
So lets say someone got a swine flu shot, and they contracted GB syndrome, would they be able to be diagnosed right away? or would GB take a while to take effect?

Guillain-Barré syndrome is rare. Usually Guillain-Barré occurs a few days or weeks after a person has had symptoms of a respiratory or gastrointestinal viral infection. Occasionally, surgery or vaccinations (any vaccinations) will trigger the syndrome. It can develop over the course of hours or days, or it may take up to 3 to 4 weeks. Most people, however, recover from even the most severe cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, although some continue to have some degree of weakness.  (+ info)

How do they determine Down Syndrome while pregnant?

I just seen a question on here about the blood test they offer you to take. My doctor asked me if I wanted to do it but I asked her for some time to think about it. But how exactly do they determine a baby having down syndrome? And what causes a child to have down syndrome?

Sorry if it seems like a stupid question but this is my first child and I am really curious.

there are 2 ways.

the first calculates the probabilty of down. an ultrasound is done at 13weeks which measures the nuchal translucency (thickness) of the babys neck, this along with a blood test and family history, calculates a probability of downs.

the second, give a clear yes or no answer. its called amniocentesis. a needle is passed into the amniotic sac and a sample of fluid is taken, tested and gives a resulted of the chromosomes, downs is identified by 1 extra chromosome to a 'normal' sample. this test is fairly invasive, and carries a 1% chance of miscarriage.  (+ info)

What happens when two down syndrome people have a baby?

I know downs syndrome is caused by an extra chromosome 21, I want to know if when two people with downs syndrome have a baby if the extra chromosome match up and the baby doesn't have it or has special abilities or something.

The first of the X-men is born.  (+ info)

Where do I start if I want to interview someone with Down Syndrome?

I have a school project on Down Syndrome and one of the requirements is interviewing someone with the disease or the caretaker of someone with that disease. I have chosen Down Syndrome. I'd like to find someone but have no idea where to start. I know doctors can't tell me because of doctor-patient confedentiality but does anyone have any ideas where or how I can find someone?

Call Easter Seals. Also, a local school may allow you to talk to a parent if they tell the parent that someone needs to do an interview and if it is OK with them, then they can call you. You also might put a wanted advertisement on Craigslist, but just do it on the phone and don't be going to their house by yourself. Your school guidance counselor might be able to help you get in touch with a parent by asking them if they would call you.  (+ info)

How do you deal with a person with Downs Syndrome correctly?

At my school we have a program called 'Peer Support' in which the students in their final year 'support' the new students coming to the school for a term. Well, in the class I am taking, one student has Downs syndrome, and as i've heard it's a mild case (not that I know what is considered severe/mild), anyway, does anyone have any tips or some information that can make it easier to work with this person? Thanks.

A person with mild Down's syndrome is simply a slow learner. But he does learn.
Basically, treat him with the same friendliness and respect that you would any other student. Just be a little bit alert for signs that he doesn't understand, maybe you were going too fast for him, so slow down a little. You could say something like, "If I'm going too fast for you, just stop me and let me know. Sometimes I talk too fast." "Don't be shy about asking questions!"
Also, don't be afraid to ask him questions to find out what he needs from you. You'll get a feel for him after a little while. Like non-Downs people, each individual has his/her own personality.  (+ info)
