The Biggest Benefits of the HCG Diet

The Biggest Benefits of the HCG Diet

Health
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – HCG – is a hormone. It is one of the many hormones that is found in both men and women that helps in the regulation of the body’s basic metabolic functions. When it is injected, HCG will force your body to begin burning adipose fat. When this is paired with a very low-calorie diet, HCG will help to promote weight loss that ranges between one half to one pound each day. For many people, this is very appealing. Some of the other benefits offered by the HCG diet can be found here.   It Helps Improve Metabolic Function With most dieting programs, when you reduce your caloric intake, it will increase your hunger.

Hair thinning or hair loss? Gary V has a tip

Hair thinning or hair loss? Gary V has a tip

Beauty, Fashion, Features, Fitness, Health, Mindanaoan Update
Known for his moniker, "Mr. Pure Energy," Gary Valenciano or Gary V is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband and dependable father. Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. “I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary. NOVUHAIR is a topic...

It's probably not just mere coincidence that my first ever fun run in my entire life was dubbed "Freedom Run 2015." In a way, me joining Freedom Run CDO 2015 does depict freedom --- freedom or breaking free from taking my health for granted, from thinking that crash and fancy diets work and even from a silly plan to just save up and undergo lipo procedures in the future. This may even sound curious but after years of promoting running events on a few of my blogs, it was only this time that I've finally, FINALLY resolved to join one. Of course, my recent interest in doing weights, going to the gym and doing CrossFit has something to do with this, too. So, yes, Freedom Run 2015 CDO really did, in many ways than one, mean freedom for me and my "new lease in life." Through the gen...
