Choose wisely

Stouts and darker beers tend to be thicker and harder to chug. For a smoother sip that’s less likely to upset your stomach, reach for a lager or blond beer instead.

Gulp, don’t sip

Being speedy is great, but the real skill is rapidly tossing back those suds. “If it takes you a minute or longer than your competition, your lead will disappear quickly,” says Kent.

Pace yourself

Run your first lap 5 to 10 seconds more slowly than normal; you’ll be less out of breath and able to drink your second beer a lot more easily. If you hammer the first two laps, beers three and four are going to hurt.

What to Do If You Catch a Tummy Bug

http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Stomach-Bug-Symptoms-Treatment-7454914

There are so many unpleasant procedures (think dentist and ob-gyn visits) that seem like a party when compared to the symptoms of a stomach bug. From stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, to the muscle aches, headaches, and fever, these bugs are just dreadful.

Although the actual vomiting element only lasts a day, but sometimes up to three, a stomach virus can leave you feeling tired, achy, and with digestive and intestinal troubles for up to 10 days after. A stomach bug really wrecks a person, and it can take over a week until you begin to eating your normal diet.

Unfortunately the best thing you can do when downed by a virus is let nature take its course and let your body do what it needs to do. You probably won’t feel much like eating, so stick to clear fluids such as water, seltzer, ginger ale, ginger tea, and ice chips. If you do feel like eating a little, stick to bland foods like bread, crackers, broth, or white rice. Avoid dairy products, caffeine, and alcohol, since they’ll just aggravate your entire digestive system. Rest as much as you can (between visits to the bathroom), and if you’re really feeling awful, taking some Pepto Bismol, Tums, or other over-the-counter stomach-easing remedies may help.

You do need to watch out for dehydration caused by losing too many fluids. Not only will dehydration make you feel worse with symptoms including dizziness, dry mouth, and fatigue, but it could also lead to seizures or permanent brain damage if left untreated. Be sure to drink clear fluids often — even popsicles help. Sip small amounts, so they’re more likely to stay down. And just keep in mind that with time, you’ll be back to your old self.

Once you experience a stomach virus, you want to do everything in your power to prevent it from happening again. Since these viruses are highly contagious, wash your hands often, especially when you’re touching public items such as door handles and elevator buttons. Also, keeping up with your healthy diet and regular exercise routine will strengthen your immune system, so if you come in contact with a bug, your body can fight it off.

The Next Super Grain You Should Be Eating

http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Quinoa-vs-Farro-Health-Benefits-36729704

Thank You for visiting www.judgeweightloss.com. This is the spot for all of your fitness, workout, healthy lifestyle, supplement, and just general get healthy information. Enjoy

Quinoa used to get all the attention as one of the most nutritious whole grains, hailed as one of the best superfoods ever, but farro is quickly gaining popularity. A little softer and more tender in texture, it’s similar to rice, so people who can’t deal with the slightly nutty flavor and poppy texture of quinoa will love spooning into a bowl of farro. But is it healthier than quinoa? Check out the nutritional comparison below. For those who deal with any sort of wheat intolerance, it’s important to note that farro is not a gluten-free grain.

Are you surprised? Nutritionally speaking, both grains are pretty much exactly the same. While they’re both high in fiber and protein, farro has slightly more carbs but also offers more calcium than quinoa. If you’re new to farro, try this radish, kale, and farro salad.

Still obsessed with quinoa? Try it for the first meal of the day making this apple cinnamon breakfast bake. For an appetizer or dinner, whip up these Mexican quinoa burrito bites. And for dessert you’ll love these ginger molasses cookies made with homemade quinoa flour.

Can’t choose between these two delicious grains? Whip up this Tender Greens’ Happy Vegan Salad that includes a quinoa and beet salad as well as a farro cranberry kale salad. Yum!
