We all know that a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables is ideal for good health.  However, it is not always easy to store fruit and vegetables correctly to prolong their life and keep them fresh for the maximum time.
Remember that the time that fresh fruit lasts will vary a lot with the climate, in some areas, fruits that are normally stored at room temperature may need to be stored in the fridge due to high temperatures and vice versa. Beware of tricks used by supermarkets to make produce look fresher.  Fruit and vegetables are often sprayed with a fine mist of water to appear ‘dewy’ and fresh, and whilst market vegetables may be imperfect to look at, chances are they are actually fresher. Different fruits require different storage techniques to keep them fresh for the longest time possible.  Fruit should be kept unwashed and gently rinsed in cold water before eating, unless they are very dirty, in which case they should be washed carefully and completely dried before storage. In general fruits that are stored in the fridge should be covered in a plastic bag or wrapped in plastic to protect from contamination from other foods and avoid contact with oxygen. Berries also freeze well, but should be places spread out on a tray to freeze initially, to prevent the berries freezing together.  Once they are frozen they can be stored together in a freezer bag. Grapes: These should be stored in a plastic bag unwashed in the refrigerator crisper and can last around five days. Apples: these can be stored in the refrigerator or in a cool dark place and can last up to four months under the right conditions. Many of the fruits we buy are under ripe, and so require ripening before we can eat them.  This is best done at room temperature. Lemons and limes:  These can absorb flavours from the fridge and last a long time at room temperature anyway. Oranges: These should also be stored at room temperature, and will usually last up to two weeks when ambient temperature isn’t too high.
As with fruit, vegetables should be stored unwashed in plastic bags and then rinsed before eating. Corn:  For best results leave corn in husks and eat as soon as possible as even in the crisper, these will only last one to two days.
We have all been in the situation when we have a large quantity of fruit or vegetables on our hands that is reaching the end of its days and if left longer will be inedible.  Rather than waste this food, there are numerous ways to use up produce if there is simply too much to eat before it goes off.
Omelettes:  Any vegetable can be thrown into a omelette for a quick, nutritious lunch or dinner. Ice cream or frozen yogurt:  Ripe fruit is ideal in as an ingredient in a frozen dessert as they give more flavour and add nutritional value.
Pickles:  Pickling vegetables is a great way to use up a surplus of stock and the finished product will last for ages. Soups:  Cook up a quick vegetables soup to use up an excess of stock, then freeze to eat as a quick healthy meal later. Frozen vegetables are great to have on hand for a quick nutritious meal and eliminate the worry of using up food that is going to go off. In this article we have gathered 5 exercises which they use your own body’s weight but they can still provide a fat burning and muscle building workout.
These exercises are not the only ‘best’ exercises you can do as there is a plethora of exercises which will deliver good results.
The exercises below are placed in an order in which they could be performed as a little circuit workout and alternate the muscle groups they target. Push up or press ups as they may also be called, target the muscles on the chest, shoulders, arms, and back.
Easier variations include push ups against the wall (if you are really unfit) or the keeping the legs bend (on fours). Rear leg raises target the muscles at the back of the legs (hamstrings), and buttocks (gluteal).
The stick up exercise works the upper back, and shoulder muscles and also those muscles located in the shoulder blades (scapula). There are variations in which you perform the exercise against the wall or lying on the floor. Sticking to a weight loss regime can be a hard job especially if it involves losing the weight in long period of time.
If you slipped out of your goals and had a bit more than you should don’t go back thinking that you have to make up for it. Do you find yourself slipping up all the time and it is hard to stay on your weight loss goals? Go back to the beginning and think what makes you slip up, what is hard about it and why it doesn’t work.
One way to start in motivating yourself is by thinking how much you have achieved so far and concentrate on the positive. If you have hit the dreaded plateau point and you are not sure how to get going again try being more physically active.
It is time to stop being negative about yourself and start loving what you see in the mirror every day. Change that attitude towards to a more positive and loving way, your body is something precious and it does deserve the best you can give to it.
It is all good and well to say you need to lose the weight but it won’t come off by talking. If you leave it to an abstract ‘I am going to start’ it may never happen or there may 100s of excuses why it should be tomorrow. People often have a reason why they slip off their goals or why they find it hard to get back on. There are ways to work around busy lifestyles when ‘dieting’, or opt for weight loss regimes which are flexible and suit your taste and lifestyle rather than strict weight loss plans, or little tricks you can do to cut down on the biscuits and sweets (see also how to control your desire for food). The Pilates technique was introduced by Joseph Pilates as a form of exercise in America (1926) and ever since they have grown into popularity and are now accepted in their use. The supporters and developers of different Pilates techniques claim a number of benefits to their name from improving posture and balance to losing weight, and those who use them will vouch that miracles do happen. Although the different Pilates methods developed can vary in their technique, they are all based in the ‘classic’ technique created by Joseph Pilates. Research in Pilates in general tends to be of poor quality and has been a controversial subject. There is very little research which has looked into Pilates in weight loss and is not of high quality.
In theory it is a form of physical activity, and as with any kind of physical activity some energy expenditure and some fitness gains will be achieved.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to lose weight with pilates and generally what you need to have in mind when choosing Pilates for weight loss. Pilates is not the appropriate exercise choice if you are looking to increase calorie expenditure radically or you need to achieve large improvements in aerobic and strength components. For those who are in general inactive and do not exercise at all Pilates will provide a challenge to the muscles and could result in higher energy expenditure (in very simple terms calorie burning). Regulations on Pilates certifications are not strict or very clear cut and a number of instructors may have just completed a weekend course which in some cases does not provide them with the appropriate skills. They could also help with reducing fat deposition in the abdominal and waist area (what some people can refer to as ‘love handles’) and the hips.
This article will look into some basic metabolic principles and how does energy expenditure (calorie burning) work so as to understand better how to lose weight if you have a slow metabolism. In order to understand what ‘slow’ or ‘fast’ metabolism is and how it affects weight gain, we will first explain some basic metabolic principles.
The rate in which the cells break food into energy (or simplified the rate in which we burn calories) is the metabolic rate. Each person’s metabolic rate depends on genetics, hereditary factors and amount of lean body mass (i.e. An important thing to understand here is that regulation of energy metabolism and body weight takes place by highly complex systems and is not as simple as ‘slow’ and ‘fast’ metabolism. A second step is to look into which factors can cause substantial changes in the metabolic regulation and affect the metabolic rate and what makes some people to burn calories slower or faster.
Some of the factors are summarised in table1 below; for the purposes of this article we will concentrate only at the aspects which can cause the metabolism to slow down. Hypothyroidism: in simple words is when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones.
There are a number of different conditions and these can range in the way they affect metabolism and weight gain. This could include very low calorie diets, fasting for religious or other purposes, anorexia etc. During menopause a number of hormonal changes take place some of which influence metabolism. You could try every trick on the book for metabolism or weight loss but if not appropriate you could actually be harming yourself and worsening a condition. Any form of physical activity will increase the rate in which we burn calories so you don’t necessarily have to join the gym, simple things such as going for a walk, taking the kids swimming, or cleaning the house can help. These are just guidelines and calorie intake does depend on individual factors such as levels of physical activity, age and body build.
There are healthy ways of decreasing calories or increasing energy expenditure instead for losing weight without having to resolve into very low calorie diets. Although in cold weather we do burn more calories, chronic exposure to cold can actually lead into weakening of the immune system and being ill. Answer: (b) Fried foods often add unwanted inches to the abdominal area as the majority of their calories come from saturated fat. Answer: (c) Cranberries are specifically helpful in flushing any impurities from the kidneys. Used in conjunction with resistance trainingor an anaerobic exercise such as weightlifting, you will indeed lose weight in the abdominal area.
Answer: (a) Believe it or not, it’s been found that you can eat a small amount of dark chocolate without any adverse effects.
If you do not have a personal goal and are unsure how much weight loss to aim for, there are ways to work it out. Below we have summarised some of the methods, most commonly used to classify people according to their weight and body measurements. Regardless of how much weight you want to lose don’t aim in losing more than 1-1.5 kg per week.
You may be on your ideal weight or even slightly underweight but you know that there is a bit of a tummy, or an annoying big bottom etc. You may need to lose 200 lbs in order to reach your ideal weight but you don’t particularly want to be America’s next top model. Firstly being obsessed may not be a good place to be, secondly all these numbers are guides and not a setting stone. Here we have summarized the following, body mass index (BMI) measurement, waist-to-hip ratio and waist circumference. For example, you may be within your ideal weight range but you may have a high waist circumference which could indicate a high risk to specific health conditions.
Ideally you can have direct body composition measurements, such as bioelectrical impedance, which can determine the percentage of fat, lean mass, and water in the body. BMI is a simple way to classify individuals within ranges according to their weight and height. Once you have calculated your current BMI then you can look on the table below to see at which category you are. Once you have calculated your WHR you can look at the table below to see if you are within a range which increases risk of developing health conditions.
For example if you are on a normal range BMI but have a high WHR you could be looking at losing weight from your abdominal area (belly). The table below shows the classifications of waist circumference in relation to the health risk.
I know that sometimes physician may tell you that you must lose weight for your health but often don’t tell you how or how much. In this article I am going to present 5 foods to avoid while dieting or at least reduce their consumption to a minimum in order to succeed in your weight lost and reach an optimum health. All the following foods can have some harmful effects, so try to avoid all of them and start eating healthier today. Many people who are committed to having a healthy life style have been convinced in believing that processed unfermented soy products are good for health. Soy contains natural toxins (anti-nutrients) which interfere with enzymes needed for protein digestion. Moreover, majority of soy on US market is genetically modified (GMO) (European soy should be “GMO  clean”, but there is no guarantee due to contamination through natural pollination).
Scientific theories suggest that in nature foods would not normally contain large amounts of fructose.
One theory of how this happens suggests that fructose has a greater potential in turning into fat in the liver in comparison to glucose (ordinary sugar). Everybody needs some fat in their diet, however, the chemical structure of fat plays an important role in the way is processed in the body and the health implications it can have.
In brief it is suggested by studies that trans fats can cause more health problems than saturated fats.
I think, these days, just about everybody is aware about the harmful effects of sugar in both the waistline and health. In addition, to the high calorific properties of sugar it can also increase health risks such as development of insulin resistance and diabetes. In addition sugar can make insulin to rise in the body sharply and fall sharply which amongst others it can make you feel hungry, irritable, and tired.
Moreover, you can replace the morning cereal with a protein based breakfast which can make you feel full for longer and can provide a better insulin response. If you are experiencing any issues or health complaints with any of the above mentioned is always recommended to consult a health professional before making any changes to your diet. Some of the contaminants studies refer to are concentrations of dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB),3 polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and some pesticides.
Some studies have argued that the level of contaminants in farmed salmon depend on the region it has been raised.
A solution to the issue could be to aim for either wild salmon or chose farmed salmon which could be less contaminated.
In summary the 5 foods to avoid while dieting are: unfermented soy products, fructose, trans-fats, sugar and farmed salmon.
In China the dominant Han dynasty had given to China a highly developed central government, a state-embraced Confucianism, and nation-wide unity (the major ethnic group in China today calls itself the Han). In Continental Europe for a host of reasons the Western Roman Empire was falling into decline and by about 400 B.C.
In Mesoamerica the first highly organized civilization, the Olmec, emerged around 400-500 B.C.
In Constantinople, as if he had supernatural insight, Constantine took important steps in 312-330 A.D. Some writers in the Renaissance referred to the middle ages as the a€?dark agesa€? because with the disintegration of the Pax Roman, Europe fell into a time of disorder. Feudalism developed as a means for surviving against barbarians invading from the north and from North Africa in the south.
When the feared war-like Huns in the fourth century moved westward into German areas from Mongolia, many of the Goths were subdued and became vassals of the Huns, but a large group fled for safety to the Romans.
Valensa€™ first condition was that all Goths (Thervingi) would have to leave their weapons behind when they crossed the Danube.
One escaped, Fritigern, who declared war on the Romans and sent word throughout the Gothic world, calling on all the Goths for revenge. The Visigoths, who were their other allies and inhabitants of the western country, were terrified as their kinsmen had been, and knew not how to plan for safety against the race of the Huns.
When Valens learned this, he gladly and promptly granted what he had himself intended to ask. Moreover, from the love they bore them, they preached the gospel both to the Ostrogoths and to their kinsmen the Gepidae, teaching them to reverence this heresy, and they invited all people of their speech everywhere to attach themselves to this sect. Soon famine and want came upon them, as often happens to a people not yet well settled in a country.
When their goods and chattels failed, the greedy trader demanded their sons in return for the necessities of life.
Now it came to pass in that troublous time that Lupicinus, the Roman general, invited Fritigern, a chieftain of the Goths, to a feast and, as the event revealed, devised a plot against him. Thus these valiant men gained the chance they had longed for--to be free to die in battle rather than to perish of hunger-- and immediately took arms to kill the generals Lupicinus and Maximus. When the Emperor Valens heard of this at Antioch, he made ready an army at once and set out for the country of Thrace. Now in the place of Valens, his uncle, the Emperor Gratian established Theodosius the Spaniard in the Eastern Empire. The Visigoths had earlier migrated down through France into Spain where they had established up a kingdom and ruled Spain until they were overcome by the Islamic invasion from North Africa in 711 A.D. This marked the end of the Roman Empire in the West and the city of Rome ceased as a military and political center. The Byzantines considered themselves to be the legitimate continuation of the Roman Empire. Locating the capitol of the empire in Constantinople (see map above) had a positive impact on governing the empire.
Because it was located at the Hellespont, which was the front door to the Black Sea to the north and Mediterranean Ocean on the south. Its location also enabled Constantinople to be missionary hub to the peoples of the Balkans, Russia, and Ukraine. Its location in Euro-Asia likely also enabled the Gospel to be more readily received than from Europeans from Italian Rome.
Theodosius I and his son Theodosius II were key leaders in the early stage of the Byzantine Empire.
All persons under the jurisdiction of the Empire were required to adhere to the Nicene faith. The Code protected and supported the institution of marriage, and increased the rights of wives and legitimate children. The Code was based upon the principle of Peoplea€™s Law and provided the equality of all citizens before the law.
The Byzantine Empire and Church sent missionaries throughout northern Europe and the Balkans. Relocating the governmental power base to Constantinople enabled the empire to take advantage of the high levels of civilization and trade routes that had been established for centuries in the eastern Mediterranean area.
In the early years of the Eastern Empire doctrinal division threatened to destroy the unity of the Church.
In 451 the Council of Chalcedon divided Christendom into five patriarchies, each overseen by a patriarch or major bishop -- Constantinople, Rome, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem. When Islam two hundred years later overran Alexandria, Jerusalem, and Damascus in the 7th century, Constantinople became the dominant center of the Eastern Church.
This greatly weakened the Byzantine Empire that had already been in bitter battles with Islam all along its shrinking borders. The Byzantine Empire served as a blockade against Islama€™s expansion into Europe for over 400 years. The bishop at Rome saw this as an opportunity to gain power and force submission of the Orthodox Church to Rome and refused to mobilize assistance.
When the Ottomans broke through the walls in 1453, the last emperor, Constantine XI, was killed in the battle to defend the city. After the conquest of Constantinople, the Ottomans were victorious in their sweep through the Balkans and Eastern Europe.
Sharia Law required that the a€?people of the Booka€? (Jews and Christians) pay heavy taxes, not look an Islamic person in the eye, not ride horses (donkeys were permitted!), were required to cross the street when approached by an oncoming Muslim, and pay the a€?tax of children.a€? Every four years the Ottomans required a taxation payment in the form of sons and daughters of the Orthodox Christians. After the fall of Constantinople, the Russian Church assumed the title of a€?the New Rome,a€? viewing themselves now as the major preservers of the Orthodox faith.
The Orthodox Church maintains that it is the only true Christian Church and that it alone possesses and preserves the traditions and teachings of the Apostles. The Orthodox Church views Protestants as a€?departeda€? younger brothers who err in leaving the true Church.
It has a worship tradition filled with incense, mystery, icons, and frescos depicting stories from the Scriptures. It centers on the doctrine of a€?theosisa€? wherein a believer is united to the resurrection life of Christ at baptism and the union continues throughout this life and into eternity. A true believer, one who is baptized into the Orthodox Church and who adheres to the Churcha€™s teaching, can become in this lifetime more and more like God. Orthodox Christians believe that the Scriptures were revealed by the Holy Spirit to its inspired human authors.
Historically the Orthodox Church has maintained monasteries primarily in Greece and in Palestine. Describe the consolidation of the Byzantine state after the breakup of the Roman Empire and assess how Byzantium transmitted ancient Christian traditions and created a new Christian civilization in its domains. Analyze the rejection by the four other Patriarchies of the Church of the claims of superiority issued by the patriarchy of Rome.
Describe the activity of missionaries sent from Constantinople to Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, and other portions of Eastern Europe. Describe the difficulties encountered by the Byzantines in maintaining trade with Euro-Asia and Asia while surrounded by Islam. What is the primary issue that separates the Orthodox or Byzantine Church from the Roman Catholic Church? What is the primary issue that separates the Orthodox Church from Protestant Christian churches? What theosis means, and what its relationship is to a€?conversiona€? and a€?sanctificationa€? in Protestant churches. Constantine XI (1449-1453) -- last Byzantine emperor who died in defense of Constantinople. In 376 AD the Thervingi crossed over the Danube into Moecia, in present-day Bulgaria, a territory that had been brought into the empire by the emperor Claudius.
Because it was located at the Hellespont, which was the front door to the Black Sea to the north and Mediterranean Ocean on the south.A  The empire could now control major shipping lanes from the Mediterranean ports to Europe, and control trade routes between Europe and Asia, including the important Silk Road.
All calories are either stored as fat inside the body or converted into physical energy, according to the Mayo Clinic. A lot of people would be happy to know a handful of exercises which they can do at home and still have the fat burning benefits.
I don’t believe in absolute statements such as ‘the very best of exercises’ or ‘the only exercises’. You can use these in combination to another workout or pick the ones you like and use them with others you may have in your list.
When you are exercising your body will use calories (energy) to fuel the exercise, no matter what exercise it is. In very simple terms, the exercise must place some considerable challenge in your body and muscles in order to ‘build muscle’. The more muscle mass you have the more calories and fat you will burn even when you’re resting. You can buy ‘special’ skipping ropes but in my opinion any rope which is suitable for your height is fine. Perform for 3 min at the start of your workout to get your muscles and cardiopulmonary systems going, and then for another 5 min at the end. There are a number of variations in performance and when performed on the floor with straight legs then they also work leg tummy and buttocks as stabilisers. Extended legs and toes tacked in to the floor (raise on to your toes), keep your back straight. A good exercise which can offer some relief from upper back stiffness especially if cause from sitting in a desk for a long time. The first few weeks it is easy to keep motivated especially if you can see the pounds falling off. It is unlikely that one day’s overeating will tip the scales, but if you give up now it will be even harder to start again. Your body keeps adjusting to losing weight and it can slow down in the speed it loses weight.
Following a specific diet for a couple of weeks can be easy, but following the same all diet for months can be like a prison sentence and no surprise people want to just escape from it.
I have already mentioned above about re-evaluating your regime and whether it works for you. Plateaus and slowdown can generate a lot of frustration and you can easily give up on your goals. Maybe you have a few or a lot of extra pounds and it could be that you are fed up with the way you look. Losing the extra weight is not about punishing yourself for all the takeaways and binges of the last years but more like looking after ‘you’. Having someone to do it together can provide the drive and the motivation to start again and stick to a weight loss regime. This reason can be different for each one and could range from not being able to resist a chocolate to I haven’t got time to cook.


If you want to follow a relatively low calorie diet, and lose a lot of weight fast, but without giving up sweets or chips it may not be possible. In its essence the ‘Pilates method’ is a series of exercises which use the body’s own weight and resistance. The little research that has been carried out does suggest that Pilates exercises can help to lower the Body Mass Index (BMI)and achieve weight loss. Pilates exercises, especially those for beginners, are a more ‘gentle’ form of exercise and will not result in burning huge amounts of calories.
The apparatus provide resistance, and increase the difficulty of the exercise and in result the effort made to carry out the exercise.
If any exercise is not performed properly and to the appropriate difficulty level, it can lead to back injuries, muscle strains, joint and ligament injuries etc. If a muscle becomes more conditioned and works more efficiently it will in return burn fat more efficiently. Results of Pilates on weight loss may be more prominent in terms of losing ‘inces’ in and around the areas conditioned (see previous point) rather than in kilos lost.
It could be more suitable for people who to start off can’t sustain heavy or intense exercise or prefer classes rather than gym sessions.
For more radical results in achieving weight loss is best combined with other forms of exercise and physical activity.
As with every exercise, for muscular effects to take place it can take approximately 4 weeks. Muscles need an appropriate amount of challenge for fitness gains, and a good fitness professional should be able to provide you with the correct level, program and routine for your individual needs.
Firstly metabolism is the combination of processes that take place in the body in order to function and maintain life. Some of these can affect directly the metabolic rate and others can affect hormones or organs which are involved in metabolic regulation and result in dysfunctional metabolism.
One of the effects of hypothyroidism is decreased metabolic rate, and changes in the metabolic regulation. It affects production of some hormones which are involved in metabolic and appetite regulation. Menopause has been associated with low energy expenditure at rest and exercise and increase in central fat deposit and fasting insulin levels. Some scientist will argue that the decrease in the metabolic rate starts as early as 25 years of age. Increase your muscle mass: Probably one of the most important ways of increasing the metabolic rate.
Avoid very low calorie diets: As mentioned above very low calorie diets can decrease the metabolic rate (see table 1). For a sedentary person who consumes 3000 calories a day is safe to aim reducing the calories within the recommended ranges.
Do not skip meals: Delaying having breakfast will actually help in burning more fat as fuel.
In other words avoid loads of small meals and snacks (healthy or not) but aim to have all the meals in a day (i.e.
Increase protein intake: Some studies have shown that protein does help in increasing the metabolic rate. Caffeine: Caffeine is considered to increase the metabolic rate and the use of fat as fuel. Sleep well: As mentioned earlier sleep deprivation can affect the body’s metabolic processes. Cold: Cold does increase metabolic rate as the body works harder in order to sustain its body temperature. So torturing yourselves with a T-shirt in the snow or with iced baths is definitely not recommended.
Take the following multiple choice quiz and see if you know all there is to know about how to shrink you waistline and keep the inches off.
This type of fat is made from animal products and is also known to raise the level of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Low-fat dairy foods, such as yogurt or skim milk are actually helpful in getting rid of belly fat as they release fat from fat cells in the abdominals and therefore reduce the amount of fat that is absorbed. Hot peppers of any kind contain capsaicin which increases the capacity for the body to burn calories by as much as five to ten percent. Combined, all of the above approaches work as they speed up the body’s ability to burn calories and therefore reduce belly fat. Therefore, by simply doubling your fiber intake, how much weight, on average, can you lose in a year? It’s been shown that if you simply alter your eating habits and include foods that contain more fiber, you will also see a lower number on the bathroom scale.
Although crunches are good for toning and strengthening the abdominal area, they will not necessarily reduce the fat. That’s because resistance training causes you to keep burning calories even after you’ve completed your session of exercise. All of the foods listed are rich in fiber and can help you lose weight if consumed in conservative portions.
These methods can help you determine if you are overweight, obese or even within a healthy weight range. Have the weight you feel comfortable with and happy with even if slightly over the line, as long as this does not affect your health.
Don’t get obsessed with numbers such as your weight, your body mass index (see below), calories etc.
As mentioned earlier in the case where you need to lose abdominal fat, a healthy balance dietmay be most adequate.
Even 2 people who appear to have the same height do not necessarily mean that they would have the same weight.
Once you have an idea of your body measurements you can start planning on what you need to concentrate on. This brings us to the point of don’t just look at finding an exact weight goal from day one.
It takes about 2 weeks for your body to make long term changes and adapt (this can vary depending on each individual). If your weight loss is for mainly health reasons then it is also advisable to consult an appropriate medical professional. In that matter it is always recommended to advise a medical professional before taking any exercise or diet regime, especially if you there are pre-existing health complaints. I am sure you are familiar with several foods which are detrimental for your health and I may cover some of them, but I hope I will introduce something new for you. Soy is seen as miracle healthy food of 21st century.  The soy industry is a huge business and its popularity and success was the result of a massive investment in marketing.
This form of soy is resistant to toxic herbicides Roundup; therefore it is loaded with this toxic pesticide. In other words when you consume fructose it is more likely to be turned into fat and stored than if you were consuming ordinary sugar.
The amount of fructose contained in fruit does not really translate in high amounts unless your diet consists of just fruit. Often people connect saturated fats with health risks and conditions, but if there is one fat to really watch is the trans-fat. They are believed to increase the risk for coronary heart disease and components of the metabolic syndrome. When it comes to trying to avoid trans fats it can be a mind field as most food labels do not list the amount of trans fats they contain. It does make me sad to say that sugar has to go as I do love cakes, chocolate, sweets, cheesecakes…the list goes on. If your aim is weight loss then sugar is your number 1 enemy and it is definitely one of the foods to avoid while dieting.
In simple words when sugar enters the system, your body produces a hormone called insulin which one of its roles is to signal to the cells to absorb sugar. When the cells are chronically stimulated by insulin they can become kind of insensitive to it which can then lead to what is called insulin resistance and diabetes. A few studies have looked into the level of contaminants contained in farmed salmon and the health risks these can impose. These names may not make much sense for a lot of people; however, the main argument about all these contaminants is mainly that they increase the risk of cancer amongst some other health issues. For example Chilean and South American farmed raised salmon is believed to contain less contaminant than European farmed raised salmon. In addition, why not try other oily fish which can taste as good and still contain all the necessary nutrients beneficial for health? Ia€™m talking about those times when you are thrown into a state of panic about things that concern you a€” such as your family, your friendships, your business, or your finances. The Romans were expert at demolishing traditional government processes in territories they had conquered. Local chieftains (lords) and their body-guards (knights) emerged to rule small regions and to dominate a peasant class.
They appealed to the emperor Valens for permission to cross the Danube to the safety of the empire, but Valens set certain terms.
The Romans treated them badly, made food available only at extremely high prices, or required the remaining children to be sold as slaves. After long deliberation by common consent they finally sent ambassadors into Romania to the Emperor Valens, brother of Valentinian, the elder Emperor, to say that if he would give them part of Thrace or Moesia to keep, they would submit themselves to his laws and commands. He received the Getae into the region of Moesia and placed them there as a wall of defense for his kingdom against other tribes.
Their princes and the leaders who ruled them in place of kings, that is Fritigern, Alatheus and Safrac, began to lament the plight of their army and begged Lupicinus and Maximus, the Roman commanders, to open a market. And the parents consented even to this, in order to provide for the safety of their children, arguing that it was better to lose liberty than life; and indeed it is better that one be sold, if he will be mercifully fed, than that he should be kept free only to die. While he was dining in the praetorium he heard the dying cries of his ill-fated men, for, by order of the general, the soldiers were slaying his companions who were shut up in another part of the house.
Thus that day put an end to the famine of the Goths and the safety of the Romans, for the Goths no longer as strangers and pilgrims, but as citizens and lords, began to rule the inhabitants and to hold in their own right all the northern country as far as the Danube.
Military discipline was soon restored to a high level, and the Goth, perceiving that the cowardice and sloth of former princes was ended, became afraid.
They were Arian Christians and were in constant conflict in North Africa with their neighbors, the Romans, who were Nicene Christians. They were a€?true Romans.a€? They viewed themselves to be in their Christian faith what the Roman Empire should have been all along, but was prevented from being due to their paganism.
Constantinople was situated on an easily defended peninsula at the Hellespont, close to Asia, and able to respond to crises in Asia faster than when the capitol was located in Rome.
Constantinople now made it possible to bring a show of strength, power, and quick response on its borders with Persia and the rest of Asia. It ultimately shaped the cultures and faith of Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Cypress, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and Georgia.
Both were intent on a policy of abolishing paganism and reclaiming territories lost after the death of Constantine. Theodosius issued an edict proclaiming Christianity as the only official religion of the Empire and banned pagan worship, sacrifices, places of worship, holidays, and priesthood.
When thinking a€?Byzantinea€? also think a€?Justinian.a€? He is remembered together with his very capable wife, Theodora, for several major undertakings. This was illustrated by the central role of his wife, Theodora, in overseeing several important programs in the empire.
This was directly aimed at heresies and in particular the Arians who still survived in North Africa and other remote parts of the empire. Jews could not testify against Christians in court and were disqualified from holding a public office. They especially targeted the Rus and the kingdom of Kiev, that vast population living in present-day Ukraine and Russia.
The patriarch was the dominant bishop over other bishops in a particular region or patriarchy. Increasingly the empire was reduced to Constantinople, its surrounding areas, and a number of smaller area throughout the region. By his actions he demonstrated that he would rather see Constantinople under the rule of the Islamic Ottomans than to remain the center of the a€?heretica€? Orthodox Church.
The Christian defenders and their families fled to the Hagia Sophia for safety but were butchered by the Moslem invaders. His death marked the end of the Roman Empire in the East which had continued for 977 years after the fall of the Western Empire in 476 A.D. However, in virtually every country the Orthodox Christians refused to bend the knee to Islam during centuries of occupation. The young boys were sent to Constantinople (Istabul) to be trained as militant defenders of Islam, forming the Janissairies, the special body guards of the Sultans. The Orthodox Church is the national church of Russia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Armenia, and Ukraine. God became man so that man can become like God -- not completely in this earthly life, but more and more through faithful participation in the Orthodox Church and faithful following its teachings and liturgy. As the worshippers enter the church the altar is at the front and behind it are paintings depicting the life and death of Jesus. They themselves as we have said, crossed the Danube and settled Dacia Ripensis, Moesia and Thrace by permission of the Emperor. Unless it is burned off, the excess fat that develops due to the consumption of excessive calories will continue to build.
The type of fuel, whether it is fat, sugar or other will depend on the type of exercise, the intensity, the meal consumed before and when and a number of other reasons.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should jump to intermediate level when you never exercised before in your life so you get maximum results. The one I usually use to train is a children’s one which I bought from a shop for a couple of dollars. Keep the elbows tacked in your body and the turning of the rope should come from the wrists.
Skipping is more of an aerobic exercise and for maximising the fat you burn it is better if you perform resistance exercises 1st and aerobic exercise at the end. Lay prone on the floor with palms flat on the floor placed slightly wider under your shoulders. However, do consult a doctor if you have any previous complaints in that area and don’t take it for granted that every treatment fits everybody.
As time progress, weight loss can slow down, maybe hit a plateau, hit a few parties, or simply lose interest and perspective. It is common for people to say I had that chocolate at dinner so I will skip supper, or I had a bit extra last night I will eat less today. Firstly is best to opt for weight loss regimes which promote a healthy balance diet rather than restrictive diets. Physical activity whether is structured exercise or just going for a walk can increase the amount of calories you burn and kick start the weight loss again. However, if you are always negative about your weight you will only make yourself feel bad and struggle through ‘must do’ weight loss diets. STOT Pilates, modified Pilates APPI technique, contemporary Pilates and so on) using apparatus such as the reformer, with books written about them, and DVDs for people to take home and practice. In theory, it teaches the body how to use its own mechanisms to recruit the ‘core’ muscles throughout the body.
However, due to the limited amount of good quality studies available there is no strong scientific evidence to support a statement such as ‘Pilates will lead to weight loss’. Some mat-based techniques tend to use apparatus such as gym balls and thera-bands (resistance elastic bands) which can similarly increase resistance and muscular effort. At a beginners levels exercises may not appear as they provide any muscular benefits or may seem very easy.
As with every form with exercise if you have any medical conditions consult a medical professional before starting. Additionally, it may be more suitable for those who just want a light firming form of exercise to top up their weight loss or just sustain a firm body shape.
Moreover, any gains will depend on the intensity, duration and frequency of the exercise i.e.
Is there such a thing as slow metabolism and if so what can someone do in order to lose weight? The means in which we take in nutrients and deliver energy as required is called metabolic regulation.
However, it must be noted that in the general healthy population these differences are very small and metabolic rate on its own will not necessarily lead to measurable weight changes. Weight gain can be common in hypothyroidism, not only due to the slowing down of the metabolic rate and the hormonal changes but also as a result of other symptoms. It is important to receive the appropriate medical treatment for any medical conditions, as these could have serious implications to health if not treated properly. In order to lose weight decreasing the calorie intake may be necessary and metabolic rate may show some decrease in order for the body to adapt.
For a sedentary person whose calorie intake is within the upper recommended limits then a small decrease up to 500 calories should be sufficient and safe.
However, you do need to include carbohydrates as well as very low carbohydrate intake can have negative effects in thyroid hormone production.
However, caffeine is a stimulant and can induce a stress response among other negative effects. If you are actually one of those people who lose weight when under stress you may be tempted to think that is not a bad thing.
Some people have gone as far to create the ‘cold diets’ in which they recommend to drink iced water and turn the heating off in the winter.
Therefore, fried foods are not only bad for your waistline but for the health of your heart as well. Any low-fat dairy product is helpful in lowering the amount of absorbed fat in the abdominal region and therefore reduces any accumulation of fat. Dark chocolate contains monounsaturated fat, which is produced from plants and is an acceptable food to eat provided you consume only a small portion as it’s also dense calorically. Regardless of your score, remember to keep a healthy perspective, which is the best way to lose belly fat.
For some people it may be a matter of losing a couple of pounds for others it may be a lot more. These classifications are only a guide and they do come with their flaws so do use them as they intended; as a guide. Maybe just eating the right foods, or adding some exercise to firm the areas which bother you could be the answer. Or on the other hand you could be exercising and carrying a lot of muscle which can lead to a high BMI (i.e.
WHR is another simple way of categorising individuals’ health risk according to the circumference of their waist and hip. Waist Circumference it is often used to determine overall health risks in relation to the circumference of a person‘s waist. Are you overweight, in a risk of having a lot of abdominal fat, within normal weight range? This could be just losing a couple of pounds to feel more comfortable in yourself, or losing some inches of your tummy or losing more weight to get within a normal range of weight. Keep in mind that you did not put on the weight in one day so it is unlikely that you will lose it in one day. A medical professional should provide you with the guidance you need regarding your health and weight. It also contains genes from bacteria that produce a protein which has never been part of the human food supply.
Moreover, some scientists have implicated HFCS as a possible contributor in excess energy consumption (eating too many calories). In addition, studies suggest that trans fats may exacerbate diabetes as they can increase insulin resistance (in simple words the cells resist the effects of insulin and respond slower or not at all). In general is best to try and avoid processed food, fast food, margarines, and deep fried food.
The studies are more or less in agreement that the level of contaminants is higher in farmed salmon than in wild salmon; the question however is what does that mean in terms of health? A lot of these points, as well as the argument of whether the benefits of consuming salmon outweigh the risk, have not been fully explored and answered.
Very often this state of panic is caused by the mere thought of a problem that doesna€™t even exist and is unlikely ever to come to pass. However, the Greeks and the Romans had given to Western Civilization art, poetry, civil government patterns, language, and philosophy upon which future generations could build. He (1) moved the center of government away from the aged and decrepit Rome, (2) moved it to a geographic region that provided an intellectual and cultural revival, and (3) embraced Christianity, the most dynamic and fastest growing religion of the world, and used it to shape a revived Empire. When the Romans were gone, little traditional patterns for leadership remained which the Europe peoples could fall back on. Education, literature, art, drama, and music that grew in the previous classical period fell into decline. Wulfia lived in Greece during the Arian controversy, and finding himself on the losing side in the debate settled at the Council of Nicea in 325 AD, Wulfia gained permission from Constantius II to move with his followers to present-day Bulgaria and there began his missionary activity. And since at that time the Emperor Valens, who was infected with the Arian perfidy, had closed all the churches of our party, he sent as preachers to them those who favored his sect. The loud cries of the dying fell upon ears already suspicious, and Fritigern at once perceived the treacherous trick. However, upon the death of Theodocius, his sons proved to be faithless, untrustworthy leaders. The Vandals, Suebi, Alamanns, Burgundians, and non-Germanic Alans stampeded across the Rhine River at present-day Mainz, Germany. As the result of an internal dispute between the Roman commander in North Africa and the military leaders in Rome, the Vandals were recruited to cross the Mediterranean into Italy. Because Constantinople was located in Byzantium, it became increasingly known as the Byzantine Empire, an entity that carried both a political and a religious connotation.
The Orthodox Church, born within the Eastern Empire, today remains the major Christian church in these countries and is the official national church in Russia, Ukraine, Serbia, and Ukraine.
Named, Hagia Sophia (a€?Holy Wisdoma€?), the church became the spotlight of the Christian empire. Doing so, however, in addition to the constructions costs of the Hagia Sophia, placed the empire in financial hardship. Proof that they did not desire to turn everyone into little Greeks and Italians is shown in the work of the two brothers, Cyril and Methodius, who were sent in 862 A.D. They were permitted in most instances to keep their religious and cultural distinctiveness, yet were required to live as second-class citizens under Islamic Sharia Law. They were often sent mockingly as shock troopers against European Christian nations (a€?Wea€™ll defeat you using your own sons!a€?) The young girls were taken as wives and members of harems. Icons are painted images of Jesus, Mary, or the saints on small pieces of wood that can be placed on mantles, tables, or shelves to remind the believer of the presence of Christ throughout the day. To their Islamic neighbors, this is viewed as the deification of a human (Jesus) and is therefore blasphemy.
When the worshippers turn to exit, the back walls contain paintings depicting the resurrection and present throne of Christ in heaven--reminding them of Christa€™s present rule as the resurrected Christ.
Upon reaching the a€?heretica€? city, the crusaders destroyed and plundered the city, believing Byzantium to be a€?apostatea€? due to its refusal to submit to the supremacy of the Bishop of Rome. The Mayo Clinic suggests using a calorie counter to track the number of calories consumed, avoiding high-calorie, low-nutrient foods, and increasing physical activity to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
It is always best to train muscles in balance and throughout the body to avoid muscle imbalances and injuries in the long term. The 3 and 5 min may not seem as much but trust me if you never skipped before (being a child was the last time) you will find that is not as easy.

If you keep dithering about that meal last night, or the party last week and how much you eaten or drank, then you will be spending your energy on things you cannot change.
Cycling calories through the days can have a benefit, but torturing or starving yourself to make up for calories will only feel hard and you are likely to give up altogether. Even if a regime worked for a period of time it may be good to re-evaluate and see what you could change, add, remove adapt.

In that sense he was both the emperor that lived during the closing years of the old Roman Empire and yet became the emperor that brought it new life. In addition to the conversion of many of the Goths to Arian Christianity, Wulfia also created an alphabet for the Goths, began to teach literacy among them, and translated the Bible from Greek into the Gothic language. The Goths, also known as the Thervingi, had for many decades fought ferociously against the Romans. They came and straightway filled a rude and ignorant people with the poison of their heresy.
The generals, swayed by avarice, sold them at a high price not only the flesh of sheep and oxen, but even the carcasses of dogs and unclean animals, so that a slave would be bartered for a loaf of bread or ten pounds of meat. He drew his sword and with great courage dashed quickly from the banqueting-hall, rescued his men from their threatening doom and incited them to slay the Romans. The Goths, not knowing that an emperor lay hidden in so poor a hut, set fire to it (as is customary in dealing with a cruel foe) , and thus he was cremated in royal splendor.
The Roman army could not stem the tide people and they poured into France for many months on end.
Besides, the Germans had been providing military and government leadership in the Western empire for a long time.
And Christians are heirs to Judaism and therefore are now the carriers of this wisdom, was the idea of the early Church. It was known for its architectural magnificence and for the murals and frescoes in its interior. Several earlier attempts to conquer the city failed but in 1450-1453 the Ottoman Turks laid heavy siege to Constantinople.The Byzantines used their unique weapon called a€?Greek firea€? composed of oil and phosphorus which they poured down over their walls onto the Ottoman attackers. The Goths, also known as the Thervingi,A  had for many decades fought ferociously against the Romans.
By stern commands and by generosity and kindness he encouraged a demoralized army to deeds of daring. Several earlier attempts to conquer the city failed but in 1450-1453 the Ottoman Turks laid heavy siege to Constantinople.The Byzantines used their unique weapon called a€?Greek firea€? composed of oil and phosphorus whichA  they poured down over their walls onto the Ottoman attackers.
One inch of ice in 3 days !!!It wasreal windy most of the day and I spent more time in the EskimoQuick Fish 3.The two holes in the shelter provided some steady action for perch and bluegills. However, the length is important, as if it is too short for your height you will be tripping yourself with it. If you are fit and can do a couple of sets or more push up by all means judge it and go for it. Easier variation includes assuming the plank position with placing your elbows bend under your shoulders and resting your forearms on the floor. Maybe the regime you are following has worked for thousands of people or it was great 2 years ago when you did it but this time it may not be what you need. An example is Mediterranean style diets which tend to include foods from all categories and have a vast amount of recipes and menus. Some ideas are: start a class like dancing or Pilates, start swimming possibly as a family activity, join a sport or see if there are running groups in your area. Set a day for planning, a day for choosing your regime, a day for getting all ready (shopping, clearing cupboards etc) and a day for starting.

Are you too busy, don’t like weight loss diets, or are there too many biscuit tins in work? However, one of the principles in which Pilates exercises are based on is precision and this is for a reason.
Pilates exercises concentrate on the deep and superficial muscles of the abdomen (tummy), back and gluts (hips).
In the average healthy person what makes the difference in having a ‘lower’ or ‘faster’ metabolism is muscle mass (more specifically what is called lean body mass which is the muscle mass and organs). This could help in improving metabolic flexibility which is the ability of the body to adapt easily in utilizing carbohydrates (sugar) and fats as a fuel and transition between them. On the other hand, coffee dehydrates the system and is not a good choice if you want to lose weight in the abdominal area. If you are however borderline underweight or your goals bring you to an underweight range do reconsider. It may be that one week you lose 1lb and one week you lose 3lbs but overall you have reached your monthly goal.
Soon you find yourself sinking into such a strong state of worry and anxiety that it literally takes you emotionally hostage!A An example would be a wife or mother who worries endlessly about the health of her husband or children. The Teothihuacans developed a system of hierogpyphic writing, the making of adobe bricks, extensive agriculture, ceramics, fortified towns, and provided a form of central government in the region. When the Goths moved later into other areas of Europe and North Africa, their Arian beliefs set them apart from the Nicene or Orthodox (Catholic) majority.
Finally, Valens offered a two-part condition: (1) all Gothic children were to be taken to Constantinople to be raised in the orthodox (Nicene) faith, and (2) the Goths were required to provide soldiers for the Roman legions. Plainly it was a direct judgment of God that he should be burned with fire by the very men whom he had perfidiously led astray when they sought the true faith, turning them aside from the flame of love into the fire of hell. It was also known as the Eastern Roman Empire, in distinction from the Western European Empire with its central power located in Rome.
Hence, Christians a€?are truer to Romea€™s original heritage than are polytheistic pagans.a€? (Paraphrase of Tertullian, Christian apologist of the later second century, by Leithart, In Defense of Constantine, p. The desire was to give to new converts not the Greek Bible but one in their own Slavic language. The attackers were burned to death since there is no way to extinguish the burning phosphorus. Its main presence in the United States is the Greek Orthodox Church, although there are also Armenia, Syrian, and Russian Orthodox churches in the USA. Frescoes are heavily used, harkening back to the time when many of the believers were illiterate and who learned the Gospel and Bible stories through the painted images.
The loot and booty from Constantinople was more valuable than fighting the Turks, so they returned home to Europe.
The average woman requires approximately 2,000 calories a day, while the average man needs about 2,600.

They tend to give a flat tummy effect by conditioning the abdominal muscles and improving posture.
For example if you are a dress size 18 and want to just go down to a size 16 your goal could be losing 1-2 stones. Aiming for a healthy body state, a change towards a healthier diet and lifestyle rather than stressing about how many pounds you should be is probably a better thing to do.
Although in reality they are as healthy as can be, the devil constantly pounds thewomana€™s mind with fear-filled thoughts about her loved ones getting sick or dying prematurely. From this time the Visigoths, in consequence of their glorious victory, possessed Thrace and Dacia Ripensis as if it were their native land. The bishop at Rome proved to be theA  catalyst that provided whatever cohesion that remained in Europe.
The death lull kicked in around1230 and fishing picked back up again at 3pm.I landed the usual residents of the lake-- a few trout, afew nice crappies, perch and gills. ThisA fear acts like a stranglehold that gradually chokes off her life, paralyzing her until she can no longer function normally in her daily responsibilities.A Or have you ever known a successful businessman who lives in constant terror that he is going to lose his money? It was a€?middlea€? between the classical period of Greece and Rome and the outbreak of the Renaissance in Italy. Although under the control of the Islamic Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years, Serbia Bulgaria, Romania, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, and Greece remained faithful to the Orthodox faith, even under great persecution. Several European Christian states sent token ships and troops to assist the Byzantines but to no avail.
On the walls in the front are frescoes telling the story of Christa€™s birth, stories about the apostles, and containing the crucifixion of Christ.
On the walls at the rear are frescoes depicting the resurrection of Christ, so that in leaving the church building the people are reminded that they belong to and serve a resurrected Christ. But because the devil struck their minds with worry and anxiety about losing it all, they werena€™t able to enjoy the success God had given them. Nothing Comes Easy!!!!    2. I ate 4 small meals a day 4 hours a part from the food groups diagram at the top. Instead of enjoying Goda€™s goodness and His many blessings in their lives, they often lived like beggars, afraid that if they used what they had, theymight lose it. Plenty ofpanfish with a few perch hitting the 9-inch mark and a crappie thatwas almost 10 inches.I caught trout sporadically throughout the day, ending with 9. I must admit that Ia€™ve had moments in my own life when Ia€™ve prayed more out of fretfulness than out of faith. One donut or a piece of cake will destroy all the work , effort and sacrifice that you have made during the day. I tried to eat only foods that were easily digested and that  moved through my digestive system rapidly, such as raw fruits , veggies, chicken , salmon and tuna . Following my plan,  you must count your calories and realize that the more calories you eat , the more exercise you must do to burn those calories.
The word a€?chokea€? is the Greek wordA sumpnigo, which meansA to suffocate, to smother, to asphyxiate, to choke, or to throttle. The Green Tea has sodium which will help prevent cramps that may occur because of  excessive perspiration during your workout. This time, however, it is used in connection with the word a€?life,a€? which is the Greek wordA biotikos.
With a treadmill , I can  walk or Jog  3-4 miles per day without worrying about the weather or other elements that  may present a problem . But when it becomes the word biotikos, it describes the things of life a€” pertaining primarily to the events, incidents, and episodes that occur in onea€™s life.A Thus, this phrase could be understood to mean that we should not allow ourselves to worryA and fret about the events, incidents, or episodes that occur in life. Inorder  not  to  over work your muscles by doing too much at one time , you can break-up your 3 miles in intervals , half in the mornings and half before bed time . I exercised  15-20 minutes ,  using rope exercises for stretching  to stay toned. Also , I do 100 to  200  abdominal  crunches  to tighten the  stomach muscles. Paul is also tellingA us not to let the events of life get to us and throw us into a state of anxiety or panic. Teddy told me the lake is completed covered and the ice might be about 1 inch orso.Teddy has patrolled and lived next toAntietam Lakealmostall his life and he knows the lake. Being a retired Health and Physical Education Teacher for over 30 years , exercising and working out tends to come natural for me. Can you think of a single time when worry and fretfulness ever helped make a situation better? Doesna€™t worry serve only to keep you emotionallytorn up and in a state of panic?A I urge you to put an end to worry today, once and for all.
If you let worry start operating in you even for a moment, it will try to become a habitual part of your thought life, turning you intoa a€?worriera€? who never knows a moment of peace.A Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father right now, interceding for you continually. Jesus understands every emotion, every frustration, and every temptation you could ever face (Hebrews 2:18). RatherA than try to manage those anxieties and needs all by yourself, go to Him and surrender everythingA into His loving, capable hands. I am tired of livingA in this continual state of worry and fear about bad things that might happen. What is the one area in your life where Satan most often strikes your mind and emotions with fear, fretfulness, and anxiety? For you to get out of fear and to walk in peace, what steps do you need to take in your life?
In other words, what do you need to do differently than you are doing right now in order for you to move into a place of constant peace?A 3. There isplenty of rainfall predicted for that area.Most of the fish sitting in the estuary should be entering the river as I type this. Anglers tend to give you space, the scenery is beautiful and the Osprey's always put on a show. IF I CAN DO IT , SO CAN YOU.                                                                                    GOOD LUCK                         LOSE 6-8 POUNDS  With proper exercise the loss of 6- to 8 pounds can reduce your   chance of Diabetes risk by 30% or more. Wednesday was spent in the upper fly zone and wasslow in the morning but pretty consistent in the afternoon. Also , the reduction of 10 to 12 pounds will reduce excessive back problems.                          LOSE 13-15 POUNDS  Will have a signicant affect on your blood pressure. Your Corvette is a special purchase, and you want it to be a decision you can look back on with pride .
Ialso landed a smallmouth bass, a few small brown trout, afew small rainbows (steelhead smolts ?), a fallfishand a baby AtlanticSalmon. The Mohawk egg pattern accounted for many smaller fish and the salmon sized Light Spruce fly produced a few hookups. Ultimately, you'll have to attend to practical matters but right now, just let your imagination run free. Last years--One Day Trip-- hot fly,Olive bugger with White marabou tail and redcrystal flash also received plenty of attention and did account for 2 fish.
Get yourself a book about Corvettes or read the Corvette history pages here and around the Internet.
The guyI was fishing withused plenty of flies with smaller bucktail flies doing most of the damage. Chances are good that you've already got a good idea of your dream Corvette, or you will find that one era of  Corvette speaks to you more than the others. He didhook-up with a few fish while usingmy Death Stonefly, landing one nice Coho.I can tell you this---the next few weeks will provide some serious action. The point of the exercise is to narrow down your search to a range of several year corvette and a  certain corvette body style - maybe with a list of desired features. There are fish in the system at this moment and with the water release at 1800 CFS and the rain.
Ask yourself if you really want an automatic or manual transmission corvette  , do you want a car to modify and race, or just a classic corvette cruiser?
Perhaps most importantly, do you plan to do a lot of restoration work to make this Corvette truly your own creation, or do you want a turn-key corvette "new car" experience? The pool we were fishing was loaded with suckers and chubs and I did see a few trout and a couple of nice sized smallmouth bass.
Any questions as to what to tie, just shoot me an email or use the Contact 2Bonthewater page.
All that cold water coming from a quarry and the creek itself in that area is near lifeless. The bridge is now being painted a Hunter Green color.Most of the creeks in the OleyValley are really low. Even with the rain, the creeks remain very low.A I have a trip scheduled to the Salmon River planned inlate September thanks to Jack. Without Jack's kindness and awesomeness, I would not be going salmon fishing.A I have startedtyingflies for the upcoming salmon trip. Zoe competed in a National Beauty pageant and won honorable mention in the beauty competition (FYI -- Zoe wears no make-up, fake hairor fake teethand she competes in the natural division--she is my little girl and I would never DRESS HER UP like all those crazy folks you see on TV).
We dressed as fishermen, answered a question about each other and then Zoe did some fly casting on stage. Zoe was crowned Little Queen when she won the Pennsylvania state pageant back in 2006 while competing in a Sunburst pageant. There are plenty of out of the way smaller streams that are teeming with Smallmouths, Carp and a variety of Panfish. Perkiomen Creek -- air temp 89 degrees, checked the temperature at two spots, temps were 70 and 69 degrees -- Taken between 415-425 pmA Manatawny Creek -- air temp was 88 degrees, checked the temperature at three spots, temps were 76 degrees at Red Covered Bridge, 74 degrees above TIKI bar and 76 degrees below the Rt. This heatwave has made most ofthe local trout streams too warm to fishfor the catch and release angler. Maiden Creek below Ontelaunee Lake should provide anglers with some fishthat are willing to bite. You can find Carp, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bassand a wide assortment of panfish to keep you busy. Take some cold water with you !!!Your best way to keep the water cool is to freeze a bottle or two of water the night before you head out.
As the day heats up, the water bottles will slowly melt, leaving you with nice cold waterto drink throughout the day.
I fished for 30-minutes on Manatawny and landed 2 wild browns on a tan caddis dry fly in the area where the water temp was 68 degrees. Temperature wise, if it is 90 degrees outside, pretty sure most, if not all of the local trout waters will be at 70 degrees or higher. We don't wantto kill the trout.The trout that survive through the summer will offerus great fishing in the fall. I have not made a trip to the Schuylkill River as of yet, but I'd bet the house that the smallie action should be pretty darn good.
You can also takeyour watercraft outbefore Epler atCross Keys Road or at Muhlenburg Township park which is below the PFBC Epler Access.
There is little room to fish, unless you don't mind walking the shoreline that is covered with all types of vegetation, including Poison Ivy. Pleny of fish to be caught in this body of water, that is if you can get to them.A Manatawny Creek fished OK. This stretch used to provide some very nice smallmouth action, but the last few trips here have been poor.
Switched to a spent spinner pattern and hooked up twice--snapped one off and landed a nice stocker brown.
The water is up from recent rains inthe valley, but the stream was clear and in perfect condition.
The Schuylkill River and a few tribs shouldprovide any cat or carp angler with a few bites each nite.
Channel catfish prefer dead baits andsmaller live bait, while the Flatheads prefer larger live bait. Carp will eatsmaller live bait including minnows andcrayfish along with the standard fare of homemade MUSH bait or whole kernel corn.The bottom line is--It doesn't really matter what bait you areusing.
But, by now it was pitch black and it was raining pretty good and thelightning made it look like the 4th of July came early.I managed to land 2 fish on my emerger pattern androll 2 other trout.
Started out at the mouth of Sacony Creek but there was some serious bridge work going on, so I left after a few casts. Caught some nice bluegills, onebrown trout, pumpkinseeds, green sunfish, agolden shiner and I almost hooked into a very nice largemouth bass.
Kids and water mean plenty of noise,lots of splashing and lots offun.Normally, 750pm is about the timethe sulphurs start popping off. I saw some Iso's and huge stoneflies coming off and flying around.I caught a trophy Bluegill, no kidding check out the picture, almost 9 inches. I left my headlamp in the truck so I had to walkout before it got too dark and miss the potential spinner fall.
I then drove to another stretch of the crick and hooked up a few times fishing a brown spent spinner. I lost them at the bank.A Fish the mornings with a brown or white spent spinner and you might get a few takes on the surface. My favorite is a "John's Spring Creek Pupa" tied in size 18 and 20 (Trout Flies of The East--page 93). I caught two brookies on a CDC sulphur dry fly and the rest of the fish were caught with nymphs. What an amazing fish, especially on a 2 wt bamboo fly rod with a fly reel that is dated to the 1930's or 1940's. What a specimen.He looked like a submarine swimming in the water !!My first impression of the leviathan is that it was a wild fish. Tonights fishing provided a mixed bag of fish, a few smallwild brown trout, along with a few stocker browns, stockerrainbows and the brook trout. I topped it all off with a visit to Ted's house to show off the bamboo fly rod and talk shop.
It was about 40 degrees and raining.I didroll a larger fish on a midge, but aside from that, it was a very slow night.
Cast down and across and hop the flies upoff the bottom with quick upward lifts of the fly rod.The fish would really strike hard. I still have not figured out whyone day I will catch all browns, one day I will catch all rainbows and some days, you will catch a little of everything.
Calorie deficits force the body to use non-food sources of energy, and the body generally taps into its fat stores to get the energy it needs.
