A Woman's Place in the World

Where is my place? I grew up in the Midwest, so that very familiar phrase rushes back to me like a crashing wave – “the woman’s place is in the home.” It washes over me and leaves me feeling small and ashamed that I was born a female. I can still see the many faces I’ve heard say it, even my own family. I can also still feel the gut-wrenching anger that would well up in my stomach each time I heard this stifling phrase. Even as a young girl I wondered why so little was expected from me in life while the future of all the little boys around me was looked upon with great expectation. It made me mad. I just couldn’t resign my life to such a mundane existence.

Junk food is not easier to eat.

There is something to be said about fast food being more convenient then healthy food that helps you be thin. I will give you that. But wait, how about this. Convenient when? It is definitely convenient now. How about later, when you don't have enough energy to do anything but go to sleep? Or when you cannot focus because all you feel like doing is taking a nap. Or is it more convenient when you have indigestion and heartburn and don't feel like doing anything?

Sinus blockages look out!

Sinus infection blockage generally happens when there is infection in the sinuses. The sinus cavities have small openings called the ostium that opens into the nasal passages for exchange of air and mucus. The cavities have a mucous lining that is connected with the linings in the nasal passages and these linings contain cilia are the one responsible in sweeping mucus from the sinus cavities down to the nasal passages for drainage. And sometimes the cilia fail to do its role properly because harmful bacteria get inside the sinuses and house themselves in there and causes irritation in the sinus linings. Thus, irritation results to the swelling of the membranes and causes sinus blockage.

Fat does Not Make You Fat

Fat does Not Make You Fat. One of the other huge myths is that fat makes you fat. It doesn’t. When you eat fat, your body has to break it down into its little building blocks and then absorb the pieces. The fat you have in your body is not the same as the fat you eat. In fact, the fat naturally found in whole foods is fat you actually need for your body to function properly.

Diet Food Stinks!

One big thing that can keep you from eating healthy is the idea of the food. People often think it sucks and doesn’t taste good. That is the best thing of not dieting, the food tastes great.
