Would Your Teen Eat These Soy Snacks?

teen-soyWith the obesity epidemic taking hold on youths, researchers have found perks for teens who snack on soy protein. A study found that teens who opt to snack on soy protein in the afternoon were shown to have better cognitive performance, mood, and overall eating habits throughout the day. Kids tend to eat less nutritious meals and grab high fat and sugar snacks. Tempting their taste buds with soy protein snacks may be like teaching a fish to ride a bicycle. For tips to temp your teens with soy snacks, watch this video. If edamame doesn’t do it for them, Soy Crisps, or Soy Nuts might ring their bell. For the love of a healthy body, would your teen eat these soy snacks?

How Far Would You Go For Chimp Bone Strength?

chimp-bonesOur convenience-driven ways of living have weakened the strength of our bones. Chimps are our closest living relatives and their bones are structured like brick houses, compared to the feeble twigs that makeup our skeleton. Blame it on your living situation. The weakening of our bones began when our lifestyle shifted from the hunt-and-gather phase to the less physical, more sedentary way of life. Diet had little to do with this change. it was mostly movement. Bone strength is dependent on use. Grabbing your stuff and reintroducing the nomadic life isn’t feasible for most of us. How far would you go for chimp bone strength? A nearby gym satisfies the commitment for regular weight-bearing exercises or simply walking down the block fits the bill.

How Many Skipped Meals Stockpile Belly Fat?

belly-fatThe idea of restricting calories is eating less to consume fewer calories and lose weight. Sounds good. However, skipping meals can lead to insulin resistance and T2D. The liver is the brain of the metabolic operation. When a meal is skipped, the liver is confused because it’s ready to release glycogen for energy and store more glycogen for future use. When the raw materials aren’t received, the liver is reacting to a small-scale trauma. That’s how the body heads down the rabbit hole of T2D. This brings us back to belly fat, which is a telltale symbol for metabolic syndrome. Yes, skipping meals is shown to spur insulin resistance and increase abdominal fat. How many skipped meals stockpile belly fat? Even the most consistent eaters skip a meal, here and there. The body is forgiving to a point. What’s the boiling point for skipped meals to foster insulin resistance?

Is A ‘Dad Bod’ Sexy To You?

man-bodPeter Holley takes the liberty to cite himself, his friends, and life experiences to support the notion that women covet the ‘dad bod’. By  mansplaining, he deductively reasoned why sophisticated women are seeking men who are stable, confident, and trustworthy. It sounds like women take to men who don’t wear a machismo cape. For example, these are disarming, comfortable but not cocky men, who are secure in their convictions with life. The ‘dad bod’ is not a physical thing. It’s a mindset. Do you agree a ‘dad bod’ is sexy?

Can Makeup Give The Wrong Impression?

makeupSome women feel naked without makeup, while others consider makeup an albatross to their daily grind. The funny thing about women wearing makeup is that men perceive these women as hotter but also less trustworthy. That’s confusing. Despite the red flag of a femme fatale, men were okay with it. Hair, makeup, and the proper lighting makes everybody look better. If you’re looking to start a family with a ‘swipe right’ contender, deep down you know you want to ask your date to bring a few references. Can makeup give the wrong impression?

Isn’t Donated Blood Tested Before Added To The Bank?

donatebloodWhen it comes to donating blood, the stipulations on who your sexual partners have been in the last 12-months is more invasive than the needle drawing the blood. The FDA is seeing the light and is now considering lifting the ban on gay men from donating blood. A man who’s had sex with another man in the last year is deemed a “deferred” donors and can be reconsidered for blood donation at a later date. This unsubstantiated ban was put into effect in 1985. The threat of HIV and AIDS is real but the threat of infusing contaminated blood is as real as getting sunburned, if precautions like SPF are not applied. Isn’t donated blood tested before added to the bank? Students need to pass a test to qualify for the next level of schooling. Our banked blood should be no different.
