Where were you during the 1986 EDSA Revolution?

8

I was in second year college, but I only have vague memories of what happened during that time. All I remember was classes were suspended and I had nothing to do at home, remember, it was before the time of internet, cellphones, ipods,  ipad, and other gadgets which make life easier as it is now.  It was also a sad moment for my family because during this time, my mother had to go to the province to take care of her younger brother who was sick, who unfortunately died while she was still on her way.  He was my favorite Read More

Watch your Bones, Not the Scale

1

Some dieters are at higher risk for osteoporosis. Obsessing over those last 5 to 10 lb may be hurting your bones. Healthy weight women who were weight cyclers (losing, then regaining 10 lb or more) had 10% more fractures and lower bone mineral density than nondieters, according to recent research. In another study, normal weight women who rigidly structured every meal had higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that is thought to negatively affect bone formation, calcium absorption, and estrogen levels.  So, if you’re at a healthy weight but are dieting to reach some magic number on  the scale Read More
