How to: Understand Fats Carbs and Protein (simple and easy)

Fats…? Eww no, I’m gonna get fat.

Carbs…? Eww hell no, I don’t wanna get like Fatty Brittany

Protein…? Eww NOO I don’t wanna look like a huge buff guy (GIRLS)

Protein…? Fuck yeah bro, I’m gonna get huge as hell (BOYS)

 

These are the 3 main nutrients that’s needed so the human body can function properly. I’ll make sure you understand the main aspect of the GOODS AND BADS OF ALL 3 AND WHAT THEY ARE USED FOR

  • Fats

Fats are broken down into 3 categories: Saturated, Polyunsaturated, Monounsaturated.

Saturated: This is an important fat because the liver uses it to make cholesterol which involves the production of hormones like testosterone. Eating a good amount of saturated fat helps keep your hormones balanced out.

Polyunsaturated: This type of fat is not the best, because it can lower total cholesterol levels which is sorta good but that means it can lower your good cholesterol also (good cholesterol is HDL and bad cholesterol is LDL). So it’s always advised to limit your polyunsaturated fat intake.

Monounsaturated: This is the good fat you would want to ingest. It lowers bad cholesterol (LDL) without lowering good cholesterol (HDL)

 

**There’s also trans fat but I hate trans fat and its an evil thing to even mention so I won’t mention it **:):):)

 

 

  • Carbs

Carbohydrates or Carbs has gotten a bad rep due to the low carb diet.. Being on a low carb diet benefits your physical appearance to loose weight since you don’t have much carbs in your body to be stored as fat. Problem is, carbs are essential for a person to function mentally and also physically. Most people are concerned about gaining weight because of the amount of carbs that’ll be ingested. The thing to understand is that too much of anything is bad, and typically, with carbs, you just need to ingest enough for your body and not too much it needs.

Carbs is considered your fuel which lets you get through your workouts at the gym and also through a long day at work. If you’ve ever done a no carb/low carb diet, you would feel that your weak and tired constantly…. Especially when you’re working out at the bed. Ingesting the right amount of carbs is that trick…. HOW?? If you ingest the right amount or just enough for your body, you’ll basically burn all the carbs you ingested (your fuel) which will leave you with little to no carbs in your system…. WHICH MEANS?? you won’t have carbs left to be stored as fat.

 

  • Protein

Protein is important for healing and repairing. When you workout at the gym, you put strain on your muscles because you’re doing exaggerated movements with resistance and weight added. Your muscles are made up of small strings called muscle fibers, then after awhile of working out at the gym, your muscle fibers start to tear apart. This is why you feel soar the next day or so. They way protein works is that; it’ll come into your body and go straight to your muscles to repair and heal the ripped up muscle fibers. After awhile of ripping apart your muscles fibers and repairing them with protein products or lean meat, your muscles start to grow in size. This is when guys use the term “Getting them gainz” when they’ve been going to the gym for awhile

 

  • Conclusion

Fats: Are good, and essential for a person. It is stored as prolonged energy to be used as fuel for later use and regulates hormones

Carbs: Are good and essential for a person. It is stored as fat whenever you lack physical activity or ingest to much your body needs. It’s used as energy and fuel the day its ingested

Protein: Are good and essential for a person. It’s main role is to repair and heal. Lacking protein will cause your muscles to shrink or basically breakdown. Nobody doesn’t want that:)

How to: Approach That One PERSON – M2W and W2M

nervous1
Nervousness

Every single person suffers from nervousness at some point of there lives. Whether it be a job interview, approaching your crush, or about to take an exam.

Being nervous is a good thing. It shows you that “You really want to do it but you don’t know what to expect or you’re just probably scared”. Also nervousness can get really bad, which in some people, it would be classified as anxiety that can cause them to hyperventilate (the act of breathing to fast). In movies, you would usually see people who get anxiety use a doggy bag or something and breath in and out in it. Reason for this is because when you hyperventilate like that, you tend to loose CO2 (carbon dioxide) which wouldn’t be good. So using the doggy bag helps the person retain more CO2. Enough of science stuff, let’s get back to the topic…..

Now… I’ll simply tell you how to approach that one PERSON. First I’ll do “Male approaching Female”, and I’ll give tips and men advice to Women to help them approach Men when needed.

Men approaching women

Men approaching women

There are many factors involved when approaching a lady, but choosing the right one is critical. Many men are afraid of rejection but it is rejection that makes you stronger. You learn from trial and error so to be great at something, you need to mess up a couple of times. So first thing first, BE YOURSELF. Lol we all hear this everyday blah blah blah, I know, but this is your front line offense, women can sense akwardness, lies, and when you’re not who you are, I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT WOMEN ARE CREEPY. So you can’t fail at being yourself, and if you approach someone and they actually like you for you rather than liking you for what you are NOT, then this is gonna be easy from this point on. Simple as that. Can’t stress this enough but just know, women like different things, some may like good guys, bad guys, nerds, geeks, freaks, creepy pervs (I’ve met some that admitted it lol), etc. So if you’re a Good guy-Nerd Hybrid, well so be it, you’re the best at being you and if she likes you for you, YOU’RE DONE BRO !

How-to-get-over-anxiety-to-approach-women
So nervous, you end up having a full meal in your tummy consisting of nails. YUM:)

Now, when you are about to talk to this lovely lady of yours, be very friendly, and throw some info about yourself here and there and get her to do the same too. Then tell her it was great meeting her, and it would be nice to see her again some time. Exchange contact info, this can be your phone number, snapchat, instagram, or e-mail, whatever. You want to make sure you have some time of contact to be able to get a hold of her if you know you won’t be seeing her any time soon depending on where you met her, University campus for example. I’ll give you a brief scenario:

I’m at school and just came from class. Decided to grab something to eat in the food court/cafeteria. As I sit down, I see one girl whose eating alone herself. She seems very approachable because she’s 1. Eating slow so she is not in a rush 2. My type and I know I at least have a chance 3. Lastly, she’s alone in a very public area. So I finish up my food real quick to prevent bringing it to her table so she doesn’t get the first idea of “What does this guy think he’s doing? Bringing his damn food to eat with me…??” So I time it correctly to approach her when she is NOT taking a bite to prevent a moment of silence of her trying to talk with a full mouth. Sooo…. I approach, and simply say “Hey, I’ve seen you around a couple of times, I was wondering, what program are you in? (This is a scenario based of a community college, or university). Most likely, she’s simply answer with a direct answer, stating “The Dentist Program” without adding a “and what about you or anything”. Why? because I made the question so straight forward and direct to the point where I’ll be forced to ask another question off the bat. **Acting like a FBI questioning a girl is not a good thing** So, instead I’ll say “I’m very curious of the program you’re in because I’ve never met a person with black uniform scrubs”. I made the question more open because now, since she found out I’m curious, it’ll be a higher chance of her asking me more questions than usual. Soooooo…… after that question, I’ll basically lead the conversation and keep it very friendly, brief, and about something we share which is going to the same college. I’ll throw in simple info about myself, and hopefully get her to throw some info also. After awhile of talking, I’ll tell her “It was nice meeting you”, obviously from a well conversation that was held, she’ll reply with either “Yes it was a pleasure”, “It was nice talking to you”, “It was nice meeting you too”. I’ll introduce myself at the end, but if you want, you can do it either or. Then I’ll say “Well we should grab lunch next time when you’re on a lunch break”. I wouldn’t get her number because I know I’ll run into her on campus at a point. I would attempt to get a contact info if I knew I wouldn’t be seeing her anytime soon, like if she’ll be graduating, or if she’s from another college eating in another college, or whatever.

Every time I approach a girl, it won’t go the same every single time, I may come across a girl that likes a specific race, maybe married/taken, or just doesn’t give off a good vibe. Just keep being friendly and be yourself. We’re men, take charge, chase, and talk. Don’t come off aggressive obviously but also don’t come off too passive. But like I said, many different women like different things. You might be passive and a women might like passive guys, who knows. Just don’t bring yourself down when you fail one at a time.

Women Approaching Men

I’m not gonna demonstrate, or teach a lady how to approach a guy because I’m not a lady. **Biology fact** – The human brain of a female and male works completely different. Women process information different than men.

What I can do is give women pointers, tips, and advice. Basically a point of view of the other side of the wall. There are women who are aggressive and just go get what they want, but not every girl is like that. There are men that are aggressive and just go get what they want, but a lot of guys get too nervous. A lady’s job is to just sit there, look pretty, and chill and the guy just chases. But sometimes things can go wrong. You can get approached by a dude and actually like him, obviously if he approaches you, then he’s some what interested in you…. AND out of nowhere he just stops chasing, or he just stop pursuing and become more distant, blah blah, whatever. This would confuse a girl and she’ll be like “What the [BEEP] was that? I thought he liked me…… Wow guys are weird”… Well no, his actions are based off your actions. If you give off a bad vibe, he’ll probably sense it and choose to back away. Maybe you showed you were NOT interested, and he realized it and chose to back away. OR EVEN… you probably didn’t show any sign of “I’m interested in you also, c’mon, keep going with what you’re doing”. As a guy we always look for signs, like body language for example. But we won’t be able to catch every sign women throw out, thus giving us an idea of like either”I’m not interested” or we we’ll sense a bad vibe and think she’s mentally saying “Leave me alone you goblin looking MOFO!”  So in our defense, we will choose to back away. To prevent any misconceptions, as a lady, you can approach a dude you see you like and just talk to him, don’t be shy because the only thing that’s going to be in the dude’s head is “Wow, she just came out of nowhere and spoke to me…. I guess she’s interested”. This will be more effective if you catch eyes with him a couple of times and smile. If you guys catch eye contact a couple of times and you come out of nowhere and speak to him, he’s gonna know you’re interested on the spot and you can let the guy lead from that point. Some women wouldn’t really ever approach a guy first because they could be shy themselves or just don’t feel right doing it…. That’s fine, what you can do is show obvious signs of interest, don’t go overboard with “playing hard to get”, and help the dude out if he’s having trouble a little with trying to keep the conversation, if you like him and obviously if he likes you, then do him a favor and lead the conversation for him for a bit. Who knows, the guy who approached you that was so nervous and shy became the Boyfriend/Husband you always wanted.

 

Conclusion

To conclude, being yourself is the key in approaching any girl. Be friendly, don’t worry if you get rejected, you learn from trial and error my friend. You may get rejected because you done something wrong on many girls and realized it and fixed it. Just go talk to a girl, if you think she’s approachable, then go for it. Women, don’t be afraid to approach a dude, let alone lead the conversion.

How to: Begin Going to The Gym (goes for exercising, working out, etc)

While starting going to the gym may be your life changing decision, it is fairly easy to make the decision and JUST DO IT:)

Usually when you are a “noob” or “fresh-meat” to the gym life, you tend to get discourage because you’ll see a guy 3 times your size walking around like a Gorilla-Bear Hybrid or a super toned well defined women that’ll make your words slur and your legs quiver😉 This is one of the main reasons why people tend to go to the gym and just decide to stop going. You have to remember, every single person you see that’s either huge with over-sized veins on their arms or super toned, they were just like you… They could’ve started off as a skinny uncoordinated person and became this “Hot Guy with the nice abs“. Or even,  a “flappy wings on my arms like I’m an eagle-never touched a dumbbell-never set foot in the gym or ran for exercise” and became this super toned, super tight lady with washboard abs.

All it took for them was some hard work and dedication. Everything we do in life is all mental, you control the outcome of everything. I have a famous slogan that I always say, “Life is Life, BUT, You Can Control That Life” and it’s true. If you chose to continue hitting the gym/exercise/workout as needed, you’ll end up having great results at the end. If you choose not to, well… you pretty much know the outcome:)

One last thing, Always… and I mean always, go workout as a group (group of friends, group of co-workers, etc.), or at least go workout with a partner (spouse, best friend, family member, etc). It spikes up motivation big time !!😀Working-Out

How to: Stick With Your New Years Resolution

Getting to the end of the year, people make up New Years resolution plans to be great the next year. Some people may get through the challenge they put in front of them, and some probably gave up on New Years Eve, because they probably was scared of the fact that they might give up on their challenge. Your better off getting wasted on New Years Eve and claim you’ll get through a New Years Resolution because you won’t even remember it😉

Well I’ll tell you this, a New Years Resolution is all mental. Whatever you set your mind to, you can do it. You should also know your limits. You can’t say my New Years Resolution will be “I will swim across the Atlantic in a heart beat.” Be more realistic. Choose something that you know will be a challenge but also a good chance of you accomplishing it. This can be eating healthy for 3 months, or loosing weight, or even going to church with your parents every Sunday or Saturday (depending on your religion) for 5 months.

Now when you have your Resolution all set, simply remember, every new year you face or will be facing is an amazing opportunity. With that being said, it’s only right to set a goal to get the year started off right. If 10,000,000 people can set a New Year Resolution goal and ace it, you can too.. Be that +1 to that 10,000,000. JOIN ME ! I’m in that 10,000,000 list, it’s not so hard😉

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYBODY:)

How to: Sleep at Night (easier than you think)

We, as humans, were trained to work during the day and rest during the night. This goes way back into the Caveman times (I have no clue what that day in age is called lol).

Your typical Cavemen /Neanderthal would hunt when the sun is up and rest when the sun is down. As years and years…and years…… and… years….and…….. (yawns) years….. gone by, we adapted to work during the day and rest at night. That’s exactly how we were built to function.

In our brain, we have something that regulates and controls our sleeping pattern. It activates when you’re exposed to dim lighting and deactivates when you’re exposed to sunlight.

To activate this sleeping mechanism of yours, you’ll need to follow these simple rules of mine below

  1. Expose yourself to dim lighting – When it’s time for you to go to bed because you have work or class in the morning, it is a MUST, that you get your room as dim as you can. This means, TV off, cellphone off, no facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat, whatever. If you can manage to keep your room dim while you lay in bed relaxed, you’ll activate your sleeping mechanism.
  2. Take a hot/warm shower – Before bed time, if you take a nice, warm, steamy shower, it’ll relax and soothe you from head to toe. This will relax your tense muscles and open up your pores. When this happens and you lay in bed, you’ll knockout like a baby.
  3. Read a book – Reading a book can help you out by a lot. If you find either a boring book or an excited book, it’ll soon knock you out like a lightweight at a frat party.
  4. Eat a light simple snack – Get an apple in your system, or a banana. You don’t want to go to bed hungry with your tummy gurgling like a Sasquatch. Get something light in your system before bed, it won’t hurt you, it’ll help you. I’m not talking about eating 4 slices of cake (correlates with my healthy lifestyle blog), but rather something simple, and healthy.

 

Conclusion

Simply follow my rules and you’ll be asleep in NO TIME. This might happen tonight or tomorrow night as you read my blog. If there are any other tactics you have that helps you sleep, you can post them in the comments below to help out other viewers:)x_tdy_parental_sleep_150415.today-inline-vid-featured-desktop

How to: Make money when you’re broke (not Bill Gates type of money)

You might be in school studying like a maniac or just as lazy as a sloth on a Tuesday afternoon. Despite what you’re doing or how you’re spending you’re time, you always seem to want just a tad bit cash coming your way in the most simplest way ever.

There’s a trend out right now, of people taking surveys and sharing their opinion and they’re earning cash for that. I’m not talking “Bill Gates, using $100.00 bills to clean his bathroom (lord knows it might be hell on earth in that room)”. But more like something you would call “Side money”, or “Side income”.

I don’t think you can necessarily live off Survey Taking Money (rent, car insurance, school tuition, child support… I hope not) but it can be helpful for extra necessities like: Car gas, groceries, personal items, make-up, Going-out money, etc.

It’s totally free to register and upon signing up, you earn $5.00. Doesn’t that sound good? I mean… I can go real far with just $5.00:) If you’re interested in signing up, be my guest. The website is below:
