  • How Gluten Affects Your Diet

    Posted on January 30, 2013 @ 2:40 pm

    chicken sandwich

    Chicken breast, lettuce and tomato on wheat bread.  How about turkey and blue cheese on a rye bread?  The foods I mentioned not only sound delicious but they are healthy too, right?  Well, maybe. Research shows that a diet like that can still make you fat.  How is that?  Experts say, weight gain and the feeling of sluggishness can blamed on the substance hiding in wheat and other grains: gluten.

    Steering clear of gluten is now becoming a big business.  If you check the aisles for healthy food options, you’ll see a lot of gluten-free products available now.  Even the supermarket and grocery shelves are full of Gluten Free Bread, soups, drinks, condiments (ketchup, soy sauce, etc.) and even desserts.  You’ll be surprised to find a Gluten Free Chocolate Cake if you love sweets so much.

    If you have been working out and cutting back on food and you’re not seeing results, it could be because of gluten.  I won’t recommend going gluten-free all the way though because it will totally disrupt your diet.  If you really want to steer clear of gluten, I suggest you do it slowly.  It will also be best to go and ask your doc or dietician if a gluten-free diet is for you.

    Choosing to Live Like it Matters for Our Families

    Posted on January 28, 2013 @ 3:18 pm

    We live in a crazy world where technology seems to have taken over our lives more than people and community does. We are citizens of the world but we lack daily contact with people, choosing to socialize anonymously through social media sites such as facebook and twitter. We are hampered by frivolities that do not really matter and which makes us less involved in things that really matter to the global community to which we all belong.

    As a mother and a blogger who aims to make life better for my family and people in general, I am constantly in search of better ways to live life alternatively. In my search, I came across the deliberateLIFE magazine, one that is exclusively available on the iPad Newsstand that aims to inspire individuals to join a growing community of people who choose to live well and make deliberate choices. The magazine is based on the concept that living well and doing good go hand-in-hand, in paying it forward by giving and sharing their stories rather than opening their wallets. The people behind the project believe that building a better tomorrow starts with building a global community that works together, shares, and supports local artisans and businesses that espouse their shared values.

    deliberatelife

    This growing community, sharing their experiences and their stories through the magazine, believes that earth matters, community matters, people matter. These are advocacies which I strive to teach my children, and now my grandchildren, to stand by and live by every day. They believe in attaining a sustainable ecosystem by “simplifying, recycling and innovating” in order to reach these goals. I, too, teach my children that taking the public transport is a way of taking care of the environment; that riding a bike is not just a good form of exercise but also a deliberate choice that helps reduce pollution in our cities. I believe in green toys and I encourage my children to give their own children toys that are not harmful to the environment. I deliberately choose to buy organic foods to feed my family and support local farmers who do not use chemical fertilizers for their crops. I make deliberate choices because I believe there is a better way to live life.

    How to Get a Refund from Mylife.com

    Posted on @ 3:17 pm

    The brainchild of who met his wife during a high school reunion, MyLife.com is a social networking site which allows users to search for people in one’s past such as former classmates, old neighbors, family and past lovers. The idea of finding people in your past and reconnecting with them is pretty enticing and it is easy to understand why individuals would subscribe to such a site. Particularly enticing is the idea that there are people who are searching for you, that the website clearly promotes by providing a link on its homepage aptly titled “See Who’s Searching for You.” This idea is one of the major reasons why individuals are enticed to subscribe to the services provided by the website.

    There comes a time, however, when a member wants to unsubscribe. To do this effectively, one must call the customer service line of the web site and request that their subscription be ended. The call must be done before their initial anniversary date of sign-on to the membership website. If the member happens to be paying for the subscription through Paypal, he also needs to call Paypal directly to have the automatic payments cancelled. This step is required because all member subscriptions are set on auto-pay so PayPal must be told in advance to ensure that the membership is cancelled. The MyLife.com Refund cannot be processed if these conditions are not met. Thus, the subscriber must be very careful when he ends his subscription and must diligently perform the steps of cancellation to be eligible for a refund.

    Getting Tired of Down Times

    Posted on @ 12:00 am

    For the first time in 5 years, my websites have been experiencing a lot of down times. My webhost used to be very efficient and fast. Sure, there were down times before but they would only last for a few minutes and the sites are up again. It’s been different in the last 6 months. Aside from experiencing a lot of down times, my webhost service had become very slow. There were times that I even experienced waiting for hours just so my page would load. No, it wasn’t a slow connection because all the other pages I opened loaded in seconds.

    My friends and I have compared notes because we are all using the same webhost. They too, have experienced what I have experiencing. We tried contacting support but all we got was an assurance that they are doing everything to give us better service. I think 6 months are already long enough. All of us are considering switching to a better and Cheap Hosting Service. I’ve been reading reviews and AvaHost seems to be the most practical among all the other webhosts I’ve seen. $2.77 monthy is way too low than what I’m paying my present webhost. I’ll just finish my contract with the one I’m using now then switch to this cheap hosting service.
