Ellen: OH my misunderstanding. I trust you will find what you are seeking. "If you have a need or desire, the opportunity to fulfill that need or desire is also present in your life. The same is true of any problem you’re having. Its solution is already in your life. That’s the promise of the Law of Polarity. … So the question is, where is it? … in opportunities. To help you choose wisely among your opportunities, remember this: Every opportunity has at least one challenge associated with it."

Late Bedtimes Linked To #WeightGain In #Healthy People

Late Bedtimes Linked To #WeightGain In #Healthy People | Health, Fitness and Well-being | Scoop.it

"If you are healthy and go to bed late regularly and you do not sleep enough, your risk of gaining weight is significantly greater than if you go to bed earlier and have a good night's sleep every night, says a new study published in the journal Sleep.

 

If you also eat late at night, you will probably put on even more weight, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania added. In fact, they say it is the extra eating among sleep-deprived individuals that appears to be the main reason for the weight gain." http://bit.ly/1cEwiUQ

Calories aside, certain foods have been proven to give you more bang for your buck — at the gym, that is. Foods with a low glycemic index, or GI, have been directly correlated with how many cals are burned in your gym session.

The lowest-GI foods to digest prior to a workout include whole grains, porridge, some cereals, soy, and linseed bread. Because it's important to always have a well-balanced meal, here's a list of the lowest-GI foods in every major food category:
