The best diet to get rid of visceral fat




Even though all kinds of fat are quite difficult to get rid of, but the fat located around one’s abdominal region has been observed to be prominently stubborn.

Also known as visceral fat, this fat wraps itself around the abdominal organs and isn’t always felt or seen.

Even though it may not be felt or seen initially, it is sure to become visible after a certain period of time and can pose as a threat to a healthy body.

Staying within the healthy weight range is imperative to maintain a healthy body and visceral fat can cause serious health hazards later in life. It is therefore necessary to cut it down as much as possible.



4 things that you should never ask your new boyfriend



rela spice

Just like certain things tend to upset girls in a new relationship, there are quite a few things that can upset boys, too.

So, if you are all excited to begin a new relationship, you should consider handling it with care and attention.

And by that we mean, there are a few things that you shouldn’t ask your new boyfriend at any cost because while they may not sound much of a deal to you, it can make your relationship sour already.

Here are 4 things that you should avoid asking.

1. How much does he earn?

While it’s imperative for you to know what your boyfriend does and how much he earns, there’s a time when you should ask it. Asking your new boyfriend about his pay scale might leave a bad impression of you on your boyfriend and he might even see you as someone who runs after money, even if you have asked the question without any bad intentions. So, when your relationship is still in a nascent stage, it’s best to avoid such questions that may add sourness to your relationship.

2. Asking for his ex’s pictures

This is the most uncomfortable situation you can put your boyfriend in. The way you won’t like your boyfriend asking for your ex or his pics, the same way it’s weird asking your boyfriend about his ex’s pictures. Maybe at a later stage, you might ask for it, it’s best to avoid asking that to your new boyfriend if you don’t want to lose your relationship.

3. Asking for gifts

While not many girls do this, exceptions are always there. So, even if that’s something you are doing on a funny note, avoid that. Don’t ask for gifts or expensive dates, as it will leave a bad impression on you on your boyfriend. Let him plan surprise dates or give him to adjust, don’t rush into things. When you are in a comfortable space with your boyfriend, ask for whatever you want, as long as you two are happy with it.

4. Asking him to introduce you to his friends

This, again, is an uncomfortable situation to be in. Many girls see this as a validation for a relationship, however, it’s not. If your new boyfriend isn’t introducing you to his boy gang, it’s not because he isn’t serious about you but there can be other reasons as well and he might just be waiting for the right time. So, instead of asking and insisting on your boyfriend introducing you to his gang, have patience and let him do it on his own if he wants to.

Here’s how you can naturally increase your hemoglobin levels at home




Deficiency of various elements tend to have a significant impact on human health. Low haemoglobin count is a common problem faced by millions of people across the globe, and most of them are not even aware of it.

Haemoglobin is an iron-rich protein found in red blood cells, responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body and maintain optimal metabolic functioning.

Severely low levels of haemoglobin can result into a condition known as anaemia, which is caused by iron-deficiency in the body.

In most cases, low haemoglobin levels can be treated with simple lifestyle changes.  Here are some ways you can increase haemoglobin levels in the body naturally at home.

1. Take good care of your diet

People with haemoglobin deficiency should consume foods rich in iron, vitamin C, and folic acid. Iron is an important mineral for the production of haemoglobin in the body. Some of the iron rich foods include green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, whole egg, chicken, seafood, dates, almonds, beans, whole grains, yoghurt, and seeds. Adequate levels of Vitamin C ensures the optimal absorption of iron in the body. Oranges, lemon, broccoli, grapefruit, tomatoes, papaya, and colored fruits are highly rich in Vitamin C.

Folic acid, a B vitamin complex, is required for the synthesis of heme, the pigmented portion of the hemoglobin. Deficiency of folic acid impairs the maturation of young red blood cells, and results in low haemoglobin levels. Thus, make sure to incorporate foods loaded with folic acid such as spinach, rice, peanuts, kidney beans, avocados, lettuce, etc.

2. Consume iron-rich herbal teas

Some herbal tea consist of potent ingredients that are a rich source of non-heme iron, a type found in plants. Dandelion, nettles, red raspberry leaf, and yellow dock are enriched with the goodness of iron and other nutrients like Vitamin A, C,K, calcium and potassium. Sufficient daily intake of these herbal teas would not only help calm your nerves but also boost the red blood cell production, leading to a good health.

3. Perform HIIT exercises

Engaging in high intensity exercises not only makes your body toned, but also improves blood circulation, which enables better absorption of nutrients and optimal body functioning. People with low levels of haemoglobin must engage in some form of physical activity of their choice and thus maintain healthy immune system.

4. Drink water in copper vessels

Drinking water stored in copper vessels for prolonged periods restores body with essential nutrients and boost iron levels. It is one of the ancient ayurveda practices known to have many positive impacts on our overall health, from boosting digestive health to boosting metabolism. Store water in a copper bottle or jug overnight and consume it first thing in the morning for excellent results.

5. Avoid iron blocking foods

Some types of foods can actually decrease or even block the absorption of iron. Avoid consuming too much dairy like milk and cheese, drinking too much caffeine in the form of tea, soda, coffee, or alcohol, and minimize the intake of gluten based products to maintain adequate levels of haemoglobin.

How to manage constipation during pregnancy



42007D78 C371 415F A337 CBE2B4951061

It’s so common that I know about 3 women that don’t want to get married for fear of suffering from this condition, among other things.

Constipation occurs when stools become difficult to pass or bowel movements slow down than usual resulting in infrequent emptying of the bowels which cause straining while passing stool.

Constipated people may feel bloated due crushing pressure from distended bowel loops against other organs compressing blood vessels; this causes abdominal pain/discomfort.

It’s not as bad as it sounds (since it’s not a fatal condition.) But for those who have never had to manage constipation before, here are a few tips.

It is important for pregnant women to drink plenty of fluids in order to stay hydrated and avoid constipation. Staying hydrated will also help keep the baby healthy. Women should aim to drink about eight glasses of water per day, in addition to other fluids like juice or milk.

2. Spice up your diet with high-fiber foods:

Eating high-fiber foods is another way to prevent and manage constipation. These foods help make stool soft and easy to pass. Some good high-fiber foods to eat during pregnancy include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.

Performing exercises is a great way to stay active and combat constipation. Exercising also helps improve digestion by promoting blood flow throughout the body. Additionally, exercising increases oxygen intake which can help keep stools soft and easy to pass.

4. Start taking probiotics:

A safe and effective way to manage constipation during pregnancy is by taking probiotics. Probiotics are living microorganisms that help keep the gut healthy and moving regularly by restoring the natural balance of good and bad bacteria. Probiotics can be found in supplement form or in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, and kimchi.

If all of the above methods do not work, then using a stool softener may be necessary. A stool softener is a medication that helps make stools softer and easier to pass. There are many different types of stool softeners available over-the-counter or by prescription. Talk to your doctor if you are interested in using a stool softener to manage constipation during pregnancy.

If you are experiencing constipation during pregnancy, try implementing these tips to help get relief. If the symptoms persist or worsen, please consult with your doctor for further advice.
