2023.06.01 09:46 MagnusJakobsson After drinking for 15 years and being a complete alcoholic my brain got rewired so I quit drinking overnight. Over 2,5 years sober now and will never drink again.

Wrote this on my Facebook when I passed one year alcohol free (now 2,5) , thought I'd share it here also for those that might need it.
Last year during a dinner with two of my closest friends, was the moment when I finally realized what a slave to alcohol I was.
I sat there with two people I love to death, and I hated every second of it.
Because we weren't drinking...
The entire evening was unbearable to me.
I felt so uncomfortable, unease, and couldn't for the life of me relax or stop checking my phone.
Even during a moment with two people I love, the situation was completely insufferable for me, with a constant internal nagging for a drink that would never stop.
"We can have just one drink tonight and then call it a day, so we don't fuck up all day tomorrow."
Sure. I don't know how many times I've heard that before.
The voice inside my head would "reason with me like a lawyer and then stab me in the back as soon as it got the chance." / Steven Pressfield
It would never be just one drink.
After the first, there was always a much better argument for the second.
And if I opened that door and got started with the first one, it was impossible to stop. I'd continue alone long after everybody else and most likely the next day as well. We both knew that.
The whole fight was about letting the first one in. Whoever won that round would win the battle of the day.
And until I took the first, the arguments would hit me from every angle imaginable and tell me ANYTHING to get started.
"Just one drink won't hurt."
"You have worked really hard lately, so you deserve to relax and enjoy yourself."
"You'll feel much better after a vodka shot."
"Imagine how good it would taste with a vodka diet coke right now."
"It doesn't have to be so boring here. You can have a drink right now and feel better within seconds."
"They have happy hour on this drink, so you can save 10€ on it."
"If you drink, you can probably get the number from that girl over there."
And on and on and on…
If this didn't work, it would show me fun memories I've had when I was drunk and how I could have the same now if I just took… one drink, which could be mine in an instant…
After hours of arguing and fighting "it", I would eventually get worn down and completely exhaust myself with no more energy to fight it. (Roy Baumeister talks about this in his book Willpower)
That's sometimes when I would get started, it was just a question of time…
It would never give up and stop trying.
From the outset, It probably looked like I just sat there miserable and hated everything. I might even have been considered anti-social, shy, or even insecure, or that I just didn't like talking to people when I was sober.
Internally, I was battling the darkness inside my head with everything I had.
Looking back at most social situations over the last couple of years, that's what happened every single time.
I hated all social occasions and couldn't for the life of me be anything other than absolutely miserable.
Even at a simple Christmas with my family, small birthday parties, or hangouts with only my closest friends were hell to go through for me.
My brain wouldn't let me enjoy them.
I couldn't do it without alcohol it was impossible.
By making me feel miserable, uncomfortable and hating every second of being sober - it would increase the likelihood of me drinking again. Because I'd want it more.
It knew exactly what it was doing. It was all part of the plan.
It's brilliant and absolutely terrifying. Because I'm so NOT in control anymore. The poison is consuming my brain from the inside and making my entire life dark, grey and miserable without any meaning to anything.
The only time I'll feel good and be happy, is when I'm consuming alcohol.
It's not just a belief or a mindset anymore. It's now who I am as a person down in the deepest level and the core of my entire personality.
Here's how it was making me feel inside:
Unless I'm drinking - I'm worthlessUnless I'm drinking - My friends don't like meUnless I'm drinking - girls are not interested and I shouldn't even try talking to themUnless I'm drinking - I can't have fun or enjoy any social situationUnless I'm drinking - I'm not charismatic or able to "let myself go" (I won't have access to that fun and outgoing personality)Unless I'm drinking - I always feel like something is missing.
And there was no escape from it. I was trapped living like this day in and day out. Drinking was always the solution to everything.
No matter how much I drank, how drunk I got, or how bad the poison was making my body feel...
I always wanted more.
The worst part of it is that it didn't matter what I did to try and feel better.
It didn't matter if I exercised, did a fun activity, ate healthily, took supplements, spent time in the sun, had sex, or did anything else to boost my dopamine, serotonin, or oxytocin.
It hit me on such a deep level that NOTHING I did would make me feel any better… I felt so incredibly powerless.
I don't know exactly when it got this bad, and I went from just being a party guy to becoming an alcoholic.
But I know it's entirely self-made, and it was a gradual step-by-step process that came from more than a decade of severe alcohol abuse, one drink at the time.
It started so subtly, I turned 18 in 2004 and I just wanted to go out and party and have fun with my friends. It's what Swedish people do. Drinking is heavily integrated into our culture and is something you do once you become an adult.
Fast forward to 2016 I can remember that I felt great and strong mentally. I was happy and optimistic all the time and had no problems going to social events or situations sober and be confident and happy.
One year later in 2017 I quit going out and was mostly drinking at home once a week or a couple of times a month. The glamour of alcohol was long gone, and now I was just consuming it out of habit.
I was even sober for 116 days without alcohol that year. But the damage had already been done. During my sober period, I can clearly remember that I hated socializing and couldn't wait for this period to be over.
In other words, nothing had internally changed. I was still an alcoholic who just happened to be able to resist it longer that time.
I kept telling myself I had it under control because I was only drinking once a week, a couple of times a month or could have a break at any time.
But it was what I needed to hear to rationalize it. I'd say anything to fool myself and not face the obvious truth.
On top of that...
From 2017-2019 I was battling depression, alcoholism, loneliness, struggling financially, and tried to run a business - all at the same time for about 2 years.
I also managed to crash my dad's 60th surprise dinner in March 2019.
My dad is and will forever be my hero.
He's such a kindhearted, selfless and straight-out great man towards everyone.
Still... On his 60th birthday at his surprise dinner, I turned into a drunk monster and more or less crashed the whole thing.
I didn't mean for that to happen and I actually never thought I could do that, especially to him whom I admire and love so much.
But I did.
And I will forever be remembered and associated on his 60th birthday for how I more or less ruined it.
Once again, I'm sorry dad, it was never my intention. I was in a very dark place then. And it might have been like you said "a cry for help", I don't know. Still, no excuses. I accept everything I did that day and I'm truly sorry.
It's the darkest period of my entire life and the only escape from the situation was drinking. It was something that could make me think of something else, or feel something else for a moment.
But it was always short-lived. It would make me feel good for about 4 hours only to make me feel absolutely terrible for 5 days, at least.
My hangovers have always been bad, even since I was 18 I have had to spend the whole next day in bed.
Fun fact: At the age of 33 I had spent more than ONE YEAR in bed, being hungover. Must be some kind of accomplishment?
15 years later in 2018 they became unbearable and turned life into a living hell.
One evening of drinking would result in me being completely exhausted in bed all day, the next with anxiety and a big feeling of emptiness inside me. Then for the next four days, the mental torture would start with overwhelming anxiety, suicidal thoughts, severe depression, and a complete meaninglessness of everything in life.
It's like living in a dark cloud for 4 days where there is no point in doing anything. Everything was meaningless and nothing I did would give any joy.
If I drank on a Saturday I'd feel okay again mentally on Thursday evening. I could time it with a watch.
Nothing would get me out of it. I tried everything.
Or there was one thing that always worked, that would instantly remove the anxiety and make me feel better immediately…
A drink.
One zip of alcohol would make me feel absolutely amazing right away. Almost like my brain got reactivated again in the area that generates positive emotions.
Even after a night of drinking and I'm completely destroyed, I would still crave alcohol over food and water the next day, even if it was the one thing that would make the whole situation worse.
Every single hangover was a battle, and I lost it more times than I can count because I couldn't stand the absolute hell in the days that followed (which would of course only reset the clock for another 4 days of mental torture to actually feel good again, and make the next hangover even worse).
And of course I didn't tell anyone how I felt or what I was dealing with.
My ex-girlfriend was the only person that knew how bad it really was. I don't think I would have made it through this without her enormous strength, love, and constant support.
But I even pulled away or closed myself off to her.
Sometimes I would mistakenly let my guard down and openly showcase how much pain I was in.
For a second, there was a window where you could see how much pain I was in, a moment behind the mask when I wasn't pretending.
But of course, I told her I was fine and didn't let her in.
Men don't talk about their feelings or show any weakness to anyone ever, even to their partners.
Feelings are something you bury as deep as you can and never speak about.
So why am I dropping this bomb out of the blue today?
Because today it's 1 year (now 2,5) since I quit drinking alcohol forever, and I became happier than I have been since I was a kid.
Because I have already lost 4 friends who were depressed, abused drugs or alcohol and eventually took their own lives.
And last year I lost another friend in an accident.
He texted me just a few weeks before he died out of the blue.
He said "he was good".
I mean, of course he did… What else would a depressed person say?
But I have a feeling he wasn't feeling okay and I should've asked more about it.
But I didn't and will never be able to.
It's so heartbreaking. We're losing these amazing human beings much too soon.
And my loved ones don't know how close the darkness was to take me down as well. Alcohol poisoned my entire brain and made me want to kill myself just to get rid of it.
That's what it does to you over time.
I truly understand my friends and other people who took their own lives, because I was right there on the edge also.
One step away from not being here today. (Making it 6 total close encounters with death so far)
In fact, thinking about committing suicide gave me a deep sense of relief and a way to make the pain stop.
I could imagine it and truly wish for it to happen.
"Imagine… to not be in pain anymore"
I can end it.
And the thought of going through with it felt amazing.
A gigantic sense of relief.
"But it's so selfish, think about your loved ones." Yes, but if every day is torture for you, then eventually you just wish for the pain to stop. That's all you want.
Not saying it's right, but it's understandable.
My point is this...
You never know who's dealing with depression, alcoholism, mental health or worse... is thinking about taking their own lives.
I have done my best to try and give you the brutal honest truth of the hell I went through during this time and what was really happening inside my mind.
It is really dark and absolutely terrifying, I know.
But do you want to know the scariest thing about this?
What me, my dead friends, and many other people who committed suicide all share together...
We (men especially) would rather kill ourselves than talk about our problems and reveal how we really feel.
We'd rather hide in the shadows than to tell our loved ones that we're going through something difficult.
That's why I have decided to step into the light and share this with you today. Regardless of how hard it is for me to write this, how it will make me look, or what people will say about me from this point onwards.
You don't understand how difficult this has been to write. I broke down crying right after publishing it and couldn't believe what I just did.
I'm an introvert who likes to be alone, and I hate to be in the center of attention. I have had problems opening up and expressing my feelings my entire life.
All year I have been dreading this day and tried to find the courage to finally start sharing my story.
For one reason only:
Because I believe it can help others who are going through what I did.
Getting help to beating my alcoholism is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life because of how deep in its grip it had me and how it affected my entire mental state deep down in my core.
I was absolutely terrified of letting go of alcohol and become a person that could somehow exist without it.
My whole identity was wrapped around this thing, and it's all I have ever known since I was 18.
Who would I even be without it?
Alcohol kills 3 million people a year and many others commit suicide rather than getting help.
And it's breaking my heart.
During my darkest times I never asked for help or spoke to anyone about it, because I didn't know how to do it as I have never opened up and talked about my feelings.
At the same time, I didn't want to bother anyone with it. Not even my loved ones.
In fact, I'd lie to them if they asked me how I was doing and knew exactly how I could maneuver the conversation away from the topic and into something else, so I didn't have to talk about it.
So I kept fighting it alone.
But after a few years I got so tired of being unhappy living every single day in darkness that it left me with only two choices:
I can't take this anymore.
Ether I get help, or I'm going to kill myself. There is no other ending to this.
And that's ultimately how I overcame it.
I got help.
I tried something called Ayahuasca.
What is Ayahuasca? Ayahuasca is a South American (pan-Amazonian) psychoactive brew used both socially and as ceremonial spiritual medicine among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon basin.
Here's what Healthline describes it as:
"May help treat addiction, anxiety, treatment-resistant depression, and PTSD. Some research suggests that Ayahuasca may benefit those with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and addiction disorders"
You can read more on Wikipedia if you are interested.
Long story short…
It's the best thing I have ever done and nothing short of a miracle. I still can't believe it worked as well as it did.
My deep unquenching thirst to drink and the voice inside my head that had such a deep grip on me for over 15 years disappeared permanently overnight along with my depression!
I instantly became happier, stronger, and more confident than I have been in years (Plus many other things that I might share with you some other time.)
I have visited many restaurants, bars and been around plenty of drunk people over the past 2 years.
What used to be a constant nag for a drink in my head is just now complete silence without any pull whatsoever to alcohol.
Gone. Permanently. Overnight.
How is that even possible? It's a miracle.
My friends instantly noticed my transformation as well.
"You have never looked better. You look 10 years younger"
"Before you were always miserable. Now you seem so cool, calm and collected"
"You never used to make jokes unless you were drinking"
Yeah, I didn't have access to that "charismatic personality" without alcohol. I couldn't even make jokes unless I had a drink. Read that sentence again. I got locked out of my own brain somehow and wasn't allowed to be charismatic.
It's insane.
So if you're currently feeling like shit because you:
Then listen to me very carefully when I say this.
It's not your fault.
It's the addiction inside you that that makes you want to drink.
It's not you.
You can notice this if you look within yourself and see if alcohol is controlling you, and not the other way around.
The voice inside your head will tell you the exact opposite though and that "you can stop drinking at any time", or that "you have it under control".
In fact, it will tell you anything to keep you from looking at it objectively and realize you have a drinking problem.
I used to absolutely hate myself and beat myself up over how weak I was who couldn't even resist a simple thing like the urge to drink:
"Why can't you stop after 2 drinks like everyone else".
"Why can't you stay sober for once"
"How hard can it be to just not drink?"
Well freaking impossible. Because of how badly it hijacks your brain and tells you everything you wanna hear.
But I had absolutely 0 understanding or compassion for what I was going through or that I was an alcoholic.
In fact, beating my alcoholism is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life because of how deep in its grip it had me, and how badly it affected my entire mental state deep down in my core.
I was absolutely terrified of letting go of alcohol and become a person that could somehow exist without it.
My whole identity was wrapped around this thing, and it's all I have ever known since I was 18.
I didn't even know who I would be without alcohol in my life.
It was my way to finally overcome it for good and it can be the same for you.
And let me be clear, I'm not suggesting that you must do Ayahuasca to stop drinking, but that you find the way that works best for you.
Whether that means talking to your parents, a friend, a therapist, or share a post on reddit... it doesn't matter.
Whatever works best for you.
But I promise you that you have a family who loves you that would glady help you to carry your burden and take some of your load off, if you'd just let them.
They are often more understanding, loving and helpful than you could've ever imagined.
As long as do just do something and decide to get some kind of support to help you.
Because you don't need to fight it alone.
You are already brave to have found your way to this stop drinking group.
So give yourself a pat on the back because you've already taking one action towards beating your alcohol habits.
As long as your heart is still beating, you can overcome it and come out happier, stronger, healthier and have a better life than you've ever had.
The only thing I want to end this book post with is this...
I'm just so incredibly happy and grateful that I can enjoy life again without alcohol. It literally brings tears of joy to my eyes sometimes when I think about it because I can't believe that I'm actually free of alcohol and will never drink again.
So now I want to share what I know and do what I can to help others do the same.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
Best of luck to you on your sober journey!
PS: If you are curious to know how good or bad your relationship to alcohol is, here is a very simple test you can do to find out exactly where you stand:
Go to an environment where you normally drink (party, bar or restaurant) where other people are consuming alcohol around you, and don't drink any alcohol for the first 60 minutes of arriving.
Set a timer on your phone for 30 minutes and just socialize sober. Then pay close attention to what's happening inside of your body and mind.
How are you feeling? Are you still able to relax, feel good and enjoy the moment? Or are you feeling bored, uncomfortable, and not able to "let yourself go"?
What are your thoughts telling you? Remember, it will say anything to get what it wants.
Can you even let 30 minutes pass without you having to constantly check your phone for how much time is left on the clock before you can drink?
Be honest with yourself. You are the only one who can know the truth.

2023.06.01 09:21 Ayle-m21 PCOS Diet Plan to Lose Weight

A well-balanced diet is essential for managing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and promoting weight loss. PCOS diet plan to lose weight aims to stabilize blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and support hormonal balance. To lose weight with PCOS, it is recommended to focus on nutrient-dense foods while minimizing processed and high-glycemic-index foods. Incorporating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats is beneficial. Including fiber-rich foods helps regulate blood sugar levels and promotes satiety. Additionally, choosing complex carbohydrates over refined ones can help manage insulin levels. It is also important to limit sugar and sugary drinks, as they can disrupt hormone balance. Including lean proteins like fish, chicken, tofu, and legumes can aid in weight loss. Healthy fats from sources like avocados, nuts, and olive oil provide satiety and support hormone regulation. Regular physical activity, such as aerobic exercises and strength training, is also crucial for weight management. Consulting a registered dietitian can provide personalized guidance and support in developing a PCOS-specific diet plan tailored to individual needs.

2023.06.01 09:21 ImANuckleChut The feelings of guilt from defending myself years ago are starting to come back

TL;DR - A homeless man threatened me with a knife and I feel guilty for beating him to a pulp.
Years and years ago I (32M) used to live in a larger city and would go hang out at the gas station cattycorner from my house late at night when I couldn't sleep (I've always had insomnia) and talk to my now girlfriend's brother when he was working (I met him when he worked there long before her and I got together). Fountain drinks were usually less than a buck, so I'd get a few drinks and stay up talking to him late at night before having to go home, grab my stuff, and head off to high school or just go home and sleep if it was the weekend.
This story took place when I was about 16/17ish. I was planning on heading to the gas station, so I got dressed and grabbed this wooden nightstick I had before heading off. I've always been super paranoid of other people, and at that time I wasn't very strong, so I used to carry this police baton on me and kept it tucked in my belt against my back whenever I went out at night, whether it was a nightly excursion or just for a quick drink run and back to the house.
To get to the gas station you had to leave the back of my house and hop the fence before making a sharp turn to walk through an alleyway. There would be a drug store on your right as you walked towards the main road, and diagonally from that drug store across the street would be the gas station. The walk there was uneventful that night. It was spring and kinda chilly, but just an uneventful walk there.
I stood with my girlfriend's brother and talked with him for a few hours. Some people came and went, but we mostly just stood around shooting the shit while he did his gas station attendant duties. I had (I think) three bucks on me and that was it. Around 2 in the morning I decided to get a final drink before I walked home, so I refilled my cup, paid for it, and started the less-than-five-minute walk home.
This is where the story starts. I was walking through the alleyway back to my house. It was quiet like the walk there, with no car noises from the roads, no random cats or other animals, just the hum of the lights from the store. However, when I approached the end of the alleyway I looked to my left and saw this man sitting on the ground leaning back against the dumpster. He was slouched against it, but his head was drooped down and looked like he was sleeping. It was weird because, when I left the house around 10, there wasn't a sign of anyone around and he CERTAINLY wasn't there before.
I got nervous as I went walking past, but I kept looking at him until I was about level with him. He then rolled his head back (NOT just moved his head to look at me, but he ROLLED it along his shoulder and looked at me with his neck bent at an angle) and looked at me and I just about shit a brick. I slowed down a little bit and almost stopped from how bad this dude spooked me, but I tried to not show it by giving him a "sup" nod and saying "Sup?"
He looks at me and goes "Hey man, y'all got any money?" I shook my head and said "No, I spent the last of it on my drink here" and pointed to my cup. He then pushes himself up from the ground. He was a few inches taller than I am, about 5'10" to 6 foot, his clothes were all dirty but not holey or raggedy looking, and his hair was all matted and dirty and stringy looking. He started walking towards me and he yelled "Gimme your fuckin' money". I started backing up a little bit and I told him "I swear I don't have any money on me, man".
I couldn't run toward the end of the alley. I could see it, but I fucked my position up so now my back was facing toward the fence that separated our yard from the alley. It was a tall, wooden plank fence and there was no way in Hell I could have climbed that without him grabbing me. He just kept walking towards me and I was still locked up in fear. That's when he pulled a busted steak knife out of his pants and pointed it at me. He yelled at me again "I SAID GIVE ME YOUR FUCKIN' MONEY!" I'm not really sure how I was able to, given how pants-shittingly terrified I was, but I hatched this plan in my head. My soda was in my left hand. As he was walking towards me with the busted steak knife, my right was slowly making its way to the handle of my nightstick. I don't know if he saw it or thought I was reaching for my wallet or what, but I death-gripped the handle in my palm and chucked my soda at him.
Thankfully the soda cup made contact with his face/chest/chin/SOMETHING and splattered all over him and blinded him. The next part was kind of a blur, but somehow I whipped my nightstick out and busted him in the side of the head with it as he was wiping the Diet Mountain Dew out of his eyes. He crumpled to the ground and dropped his weapon (which I could now clearly see was a busted steak knife in the light of the parking lot), but he kept trying to get back up and I was terrified he was going to hurt me if he did, so I just stood over him with the nightstick and just wailed him repeatedly. Any opened part I could reach, I'd hit it. I don't know how many times I hit him, I don't know how long I hit him for, but I do remember busting his head a few times, busting his hands and arms and shoulders and elbows, I think smacked him in the ribs a few times... I don't know how long I stood over him and beat the shit out of him, but I know I was tired and drenched in sweat when I finally stopped... And he wasn't moving. He was breathing, but he wasn't moving.
I don't remember running and jumping the fence back into my yard, nor do I really remember much of getting back into my room, but I know when I got back upstairs I locked my bedroom door, I was soaked in sweat, I was shaking really bad, I was hyperventilating, and I didn't realize it at the time but I clearly pissed my pants out of fear. I couldn't sleep well for weeks after it. Every time I'd close my eyes I'd just see his angry face screaming at me for money and him waving that knife at me. At that moment I thought I killed this guy and now I thought the cops were going to come after me, but nothing ever really came of it. No dead body in a parking lot, no cops, no follow-up in the news, nothing. When I did sleep, I had nightmares about it for months and I didn't leave the house at night for a long, long, long time.
I could justify everything in that moment. It was all from a place of primal fear. I really thought he was going to hurt me or kill me. I should have just given him what little pocket change I did have (it was somewhere between a nickel and thirty cents, I really don't remember how much but it wasn't a lot at all). I should have just ran away. Maybe if I just hit him with my soda to blind him and took off... I don't know. It was either me or him, and I guess I decided I didn't want to be gutted in a CVS alleyway. Thanks to him I've been even more paranoid of people, especially at night, and I refuse to leave my house unless I'm armed. Recently the memory resurfaced and that guilt I'd felt when I was a teenager came welling up again and thought I should come to confess.

From Farm to Table: Harvesting Vitamin A-Rich Vegetables for Optimal Health
stack carrots in the bowl
When it comes to maintaining optimal health, a well-balanced diet is key. One essential nutrient that plays a vital role in supporting various bodily functions is Vitamin A. While many people associate this nutrient with carrots alone, there is a wide range of vitamin A-rich vegetables that can be incorporated into your daily meals. In this article, we will explore the journey of these vegetables from the farm to your table, highlighting their cultivation, harvesting, and the health benefits they offer.

Understanding Vitamin A:

Before delving into vegetable sources, it's important to understand the significance of Vitamin A. This fat-soluble vitamin is crucial for vision, immune function, cell growth, and overall health. It exists in two forms: retinoids, which are found in animal products, and carotenoids, primarily present in plant-based foods.

Cultivating Vitamin A-Rich Vegetables:

Farmers play a crucial role in cultivating vitamin A-rich vegetables. They employ sustainable farming practices to ensure the nutritional value of the crops. From selecting the right seeds to optimizing soil conditions and irrigation, farmers strive to maximize the vitamin content of these vegetables.

Harvesting Techniques for Optimal Vitamin A Retention:

The timing and techniques employed during the harvesting process greatly impact the vitamin A content of vegetables. We explore the best practices that farmers use to retain the maximum nutritional value. Factors such as maturity stage, post-harvest handling, and storage conditions are all taken into consideration to preserve the vitamin A content effectively.
  1. Carrots: The Classic Vitamin A Powerhouse: Carrots are undoubtedly the most well-known vitamin A-rich vegetable. We delve into the reasons behind their vibrant orange color and how it indicates their high beta-carotene content. Additionally, we explore the best ways to cook and consume carrots to maximize their vitamin A absorption.
  2. Beyond Carrots: Exploring a Rainbow of Vitamin A Sources: While carrots are undeniably nutritious, there is a whole spectrum of colorful vegetables that can boost your vitamin A intake. We showcase vegetables such as sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, butternut squash, and red peppers, which all contain substantial amounts of this vital nutrient. Readers will learn about their unique nutritional profiles and cooking methods, and how to incorporate them into their diet for optimal health benefits.
  3. Enhancing Absorption with Healthy Fats: Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning it requires the presence of healthy fats for optimal absorption. We discuss the importance of pairing vitamin A-rich vegetables with good sources of dietary fat, such as olive oil or avocado, to enhance the nutrient's bioavailability and maximize its benefits.
  4. Health Benefits of Vitamin A-Rich Vegetables: In this section, we highlight the remarkable health benefits that vitamin A-rich vegetables offer. From promoting healthy eyesight and supporting the immune system to contributing to vibrant skin and promoting cellular growth, readers will gain a deeper understanding of how these vegetables positively impact overall well-being.
  5. Tips for Meal Planning and Recipes: To wrap up the article, we provide practical tips for incorporating vitamin A-rich vegetables into daily meal planning. Additionally, we share a selection of delicious and nutritious recipes featuring these vegetables, appealing to both novice and seasoned cooks alike.


Embracing a diet rich in vitamin A is a smart choice for supporting optimal health. By understanding the journey of these vegetables from the farm to our table, we can appreciate the efforts put into cultivating and harvesting them while reaping the numerous health benefits they provide. So, let's embrace the diverse range of vitamin A-rich vegetables available and elevate our well-being one colorful plate at a time.

Don't keep your routine the same all the time. After you have been working out for a bit of time, you might find that you are bored with your routine. This Red Boost Powder Reviews can cause you to lose motivation and even stop working out all together. Change your routine regularly to work on different groups of muscles and keep things challenging enough. By doing this you will remain motivated and help to prevent plateaus in progress too.
If you want to optimize your muscle building ability, make sure to eat something after a workout. Eat within an hour of finishing your workout. Ideally, your snack or meal should contain a protein and a carbohydrate. This food will get your body started doing the things it needs to do to start building muscle.
How does Red Boost Powder work?
If you are on a program to build muscle, try losing any excess weight you are carrying first. You must consume fewer calories than you burn. Any activity such as mowing the lawn, bike riding or swimming will create a caloric deficit. As you lose weight, you will begin to see your muscles appear. Then it's time to work them!
To supplement your muscle building in the gym, make sure your diet includes high protein foods. Protein is essential to building muscle, and not eating enough protein can actually make you lose muscle mass. You should eat one gram of protein for each pound you weigh.
Make sure that you are eating healthy foods every 3 hours. Figure out how many calories you will need to consume every day, and then divide that by six. The number that you get will tell you how many calories you will need to consume while you are eating your meals.
Mix your weight training up with some high volume intensity and medium volume intensity as well. This means how many reps you do, and also male enhancement how hard you have to work. Lactic acid will be released while you are working out, and that will stimulate your muscles to grow.

  • Nettle Root
When you are trying to build muscle to improve your health and fitness, it is essential to recognize that rest is just as important as the exercise in encouraging muscle growth. Muscles need recovery time to repair damage and build new fibers. Working out too frequently or too aggressively can work against you in the long run.
If your muscle building routine is working, it should be making you stronger. Focus on strength training and try lifting more weight from one workout to another. If you look at when you are just beginning, you should Red Boost Reviews see yourself lifting five percent more than you have two workout sessions ago. This trend should be continual. If you are having difficulty meeting your goals, it may be necessary to rethink your current plan of action. If you feel weaker than your previous workout session, perhaps you have not yet fully recovered.
If you really want to build some significant muscle mass, you should consider using a creatine supplement. Not everyone benefits from the use of these products, but they may lead to increased muscle growth and are worth trying. If they do not work for you, then it is no loss.
You might want to try something for your back, like mixing the grip. Grip the weight bar with a staged or mixed grip position when performing deadlifts and rack pulls, to achieve a varied workout and better overall results. This sort of grip assists you in twisting the bar in one direction, so your underhand grip starts twisting the bar in the opposite direction. This stops the bar from rolling all over your hands.
The benefits of Red Boost:
Complete those exercises that work more than one muscle group first, and then work on the ones that require the use of an isolated muscle. Doing this will allow you to complete the exercises that use the most energy first, while you are still feeling fresh and energetic. You will complete a more effective workout and put focus on working your entire body, rather than just one muscle group.
Make sure that you keep on increasing the number of weights that you lift. In order to build big, strong muscles, you need to constantly extend your current muscles to their limit. If your muscles are not intensively worked out, they will not grow. You could also increase the number of repetitions that you do to increase the intensity of your workout.
Try to find a friend to workout with. By having someone there, you will have someone who can push your limits a bit when you need it. This is especially nice if your workout buddy is at the same level that you are. Having a friend to workout with is also helps since certain weightlifting exercises do require a spotter.

Using what you've learned here will be key in creating a muscle building strategy which works for you. You'll be able to reach goals more quickly by avoiding common mistakes, and build your mass beyond your peers as you'll know the techniques which work best. All it will take is determination!

2023.06.01 07:22 Aggressive_Text2210 Possible foreign body obstruction. Advice, please. Don't know what to do next.

Species: Dog Age: around 5 years Sex/Neuter status: M Neutered Breed: German Shepard, Large breed mix Body weight: 89lbs / 40kg History: Torn ligaments in hind legs. No further hx Clinical signs: N/V, Shaking/Shivering, Fatigue/Lathargy Duration: 2 days N/V and shivering. 1 day fatigue/lethargy Your general location: Tempe, AZ Links to test results, vet reports, X-rays etc. XRay
Concise story time... Just got back from the vet. My dog seems to be doing ok for now. Still some intermittent shaking. Yesterday the pup had N/V that lasted through the night. Not uncommon for him to have some n/v. Every few months he will throw up pale yellow mucusy fluid. He usually recovers after a chicken and rice diet.
Today 8AM He drank a bowl of water (about 1L) and did not eat dry food breakfast. Within the next few hours he had vomited the water. Almost completely clear fluid with some mucusy bubbles.
Noon Shaking continues, lethargy increases. He drinks another bowl of water.
2PM Vomits more clear fluid w/ less mucus and more volume. I add salmon fat from my lunch to his dry food. He is completely disinterested.
5PM I tossed the dry food. He did not eat the rice and salmon (I was out of chicken) I prepared for him. He drinks another bowl of water.
6PM His shaking is increased and seems to be dry heaving. Quite lethargic with his tail between his legs and a look of concern on his face.
630PM As I open the front door to leav for the emergency vet, he vomits the largest amount of perfectly clear fluid yet. We hop in the car.
The vet does the xray (-$600) which they explain vaguely. They didn't say much about his vitals at the vet. Could be a blockage and might not be. They want to keep him overnight. I can't afford that let alone a follow up xray or surgery. We try to give him oral antiemetics but that fails. He was bitey about shoving the pill to the back of the throat and hiding the pill in two different treats didn't work either. They refuse to try rectal administration. They sold me a 1L bag of LR and the supplies to administer sq at home. I do that and now we're here.
He's currently shaking intermittently. The hump from the LR I gave him is pretty big. His breathing seems a little deep. I could be anxious about the breathing part. He wags his tail when he looks at me. He does walk around a little bit before doing his usual plop to a more comfortable spot.
The plan is to take him to a more affordable clinic that allows payment plans tomorrow morning.

Acne: Causes, Treatment Options, Tips And Advice


Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It not only impacts physical appearance but can also have a significant impact on self-esteem and overall well-being. In this blog, we will explore the causes of acne, various treatment options available, and offer some valuable tips and advice for managing this bothersome condition.

Causes of Acne:

Acne is primarily caused by the overproduction of oil (sebum) by the sebaceous glands in the skin. This excess oil, combined with dead skin cells, can clog the pores, leading to the formation of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and even more severe forms like cysts and nodules. Some common factors contributing to acne include:
Hormonal changes: Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, menstrual cycles, pregnancy, or hormonal disorders can trigger acne breakouts.
Genetics: A family history of acne can increase the likelihood of experiencing it.
Poor skincare habits: Using harsh products, not properly cleansing the skin, or failing to remove makeup can contribute to acne development.
Diet: Consuming a diet high in refined sugars, processed foods, and dairy products has been associated with increased acne incidence.
Stress: High-stress levels can worsen existing acne or provoke new breakouts.
Environmental factors: Exposure to pollutants, humidity, or certain chemicals can aggravate acne symptoms.

Treatment Options:

The good news is that acne can be effectively managed and treated. The choice of treatment depends on the severity of the condition. Here are some common options:
Topical treatments: Over-the-counter creams, gels, or lotions containing ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or retinoids can help unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and kill acne-causing bacteria.
Prescription medications: In more severe cases, a Best skin clinic In Jaipur may prescribe oral antibiotics, hormonal treatments (such as birth control pills), or isotretinoin (a powerful acne medication).
Professional procedures: Dermatological procedures like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser therapy can help improve acne symptoms and minimize scarring.
Lifestyle changes: Adopting a healthier lifestyle can greatly impact acne. This includes maintaining a balanced diet, staying hydrated, managing stress levels, avoiding touching or picking at the skin, and using non-comedogenic (non-pore-clogging) skincare products.

Tips and Advice for Managing Acne:

In addition to the treatment options mentioned above, here are some valuable tips and advice for managing acne:
Cleanse gently: Use a mild, non-abrasive cleanser to wash your face twice a day. Avoid scrubbing or using harsh products, as they can irritate the skin and worsen acne.
Moisturize: Use an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated without clogging pores.
Hands off: Avoid touching your face or picking at your acne, as this can introduce more bacteria and lead to scarring.
Sun protection: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by using a non-comedogenic sunscreen.
Healthy diet: Opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Limit your intake of sugary, greasy, and processed foods.
Hydration: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and help flush out toxins.
Stress management: Engage in stress-relieving activities like exercise, meditation, or hobbies to reduce stress levels and prevent acne flare-ups.


Acne is a common skin condition that can be distressing, but with the right knowledge and treatment options, it can be effectively managed. Understanding the causes, seeking appropriate treatment, and adopting a healthy skincare routine can greatly improve the appearance and health of your skin. Remember to be patient, as consistent effort and a comprehensive approach are key to achieving long-term acne control. Consult with a dermatologist Acne treatment/ acne scars in Jaipur to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, and embrace self-care practices that contribute to your overall well-being.

2023.06.01 06:50 adr223 Snoring?

I found out I started snoring within the last year, and it’s getting worse (as loud as humanly possible, according to my boyfriend recently). My EGD was yesterday, I have a small hiatal hernia and an irregular z-line, awaiting biopsy results. I asked the doctor about my snoring and he doesn’t think it’s caused by these issues, at least not solely. I’m not convinced and wanted to hear if others have had experiences of new or increased snoring with worsened symptoms.
My other symptoms include vomiting and heartburn. I’ve had sleep studies in the past, 7 and 4 years ago, and didn’t have any apnea or anything then. I have gained some weight over the past few years due to my anxiety medication.
I plan to ask another doctor, and am willing to undergo another sleep study if recommended and if my symptoms don’t improve with diet changes and elevating my head while sleeping.
What’s been your snoring history? Thanks for sharing!

2023.06.01 06:33 shivamiswriting The many reasons you should eat chickpeas

Chickpeas – the food that has been a staple of many cultures for centuries. Be it the Greek land, ancient India, or the Middle East, this food is always loved. And while we do eat them sometimes, we don’t understand why we eat them. Of course, one big reason is that it is delicious. But even a pizza is delicious. No? Well, chickpeas are healthy as well, unlike fast food. In fact, they are so healthy that there is not one but many reasons you should make them your staple. Let’s dive in and see what benefits these tiny legumes offer.

They offer a healthy punch of nutrients

Many people think that the vegetarian diet is a bland diet, not only bland but that it also lacks nutrition. But did you know that a vegetarian diet is an excellent source of nutrition? The longest-living people in the world, the people of Ogimi village, say that they eat at least 20 different types of vegetables each day.
Know that chickpeas are an excellent source of plant-based protein, fiber, iron, and other essential vitamins and minerals. What more? They're also low in fat and calories. This makes them a heaven for calorie-conscious people. Include it in your diet and see the change in your weight happening.

Your guts love them

Fiber is one of those things that help heal our guts. First of all, they provide bulk to the food in our guts. This means that food moves slowly through your guts, giving our bodies enough time to absorb nutrients. Also, fiber also increases the number of healthy bacteria in our guts. This means better digestion. And know what? Chickpeas are rich in fiber.
Thanks to the high fiber content in chickpeas, they can help keep your digestive system healthy and regular. Not also this, fiber can also help you feel full for longer periods. This makes it a great food to include in your diet if you are looking for a weight loss plan.
If your diet doesn’t include enough fiber, you must consume it in supplement form. There are various sites like Shopify where you may easily get health and beauty products at wonderful prices.

Helps you fight chronic diseases

Another great thing about chickpeas is that they help you fight many diseases. Studies have shown that a diet rich in legumes, including chickpeas, can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Having it included in your diet may help you prevent diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Not only this, chickpeas are also known to help regulate blood sugar levels. This is because of the fibre content in them. Those with diabetes should cherish this delicacy.

A heaven for the taste buds

If you love delicious food, which of course you do, then try out chickpeas. Health is not the only reason this dish is cherished throughout the world. It is also because it is tasty. Chickpeas can be used in a variety of dishes. Be it soups, stews, curries, salads, or even dips, chickpeas can be used to make everything. They can be roasted for a crunchy snack, pureed into hummus, or added to curries and other spicy dishes for a tasty and filling meal.
The modern world has made us compromise our diet. The food we eat today is either processed or contains bad calories. Chickpeas come as a refuge in these scenarios. Not only is this nutritious but can make one swoon as well for its taste. So go ahead and give them a try – your taste buds and your body will thank you!

How To Get Secured Ayurvedic Treatment For Mental Illness?

Ayurvedic treatment for mental illness
Ayurveda, an ancient holistic system of medicine originating in India, offers a comprehensive approach to treating mental illnesses. Ayurvedic treatment for mental illness aims to restore balance and harmony to the mind, body, and spirit, promoting overall well-being and mental health. In Ayurveda, mental illnesses are seen as imbalances or disturbances in the doshas, which are the fundamental energies that govern our physical and mental processes. The three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—each have unique qualities and when they are out of balance, it can lead to various psychological disorders. The treatment of mental illness in Ayurveda involves a personalized approach that takes into account the individual's unique constitution, known as the Prakriti, and the specific imbalances present. Ayurvedic practitioners assess the person's physical and mental symptoms, lifestyle, diet, and emotional state to develop a customized treatment plan.

2023.06.01 06:10 Myrxes I thought my breeder was reputable but I'm concerned...

We vetted several different breeders and went to one with a great pedigree, the location was amazing, we met the parents, they showed us around, showed us the health certificates, and everything.
When we picked our pup up we noticed her eyes weren't clear but not a bother. They assured us they looked normal and we took her to our vet who also said everything looked normal - except she had a small/hooded vulva.
A week later blisters started forming in her ears, around her nose, mouth, and eyes. She has green gunk coming out of her eyes. The vet confirmed she had puppy strangles. That lead us down a four month treatment plan of Prednisone.
Meanwhile, she's always been a bit unstable, especially when pooping. Now she has a weird hind end gait when she walks. Our vet is concerned about hip dysplasia.
That's not all. She has horrible digestive issues and a lot of diarrhea. She's on a special diet, probiotics, and fiber.
We maintain contact with the breeder and talk on at least a weekly basis. When we first learned she had puppy strangles the breeder called us crying and offered our money back or a puppy from the next litter and they'll take her back. I understand why they offered this, but that was never an option for us. We love our girl, and we understand that biology is complicated and not everything can be predicted. But damn... It feels like we have the one with all of the issues - like this doesn't feel normal. I've raised puppies since I was a kid with my parents. I don't remember anything like this.
