Testing the Cabbage Soup Diet – Day 1

Today, as promised, is my first day on the legendary cage soup diet. I've been meaning to try it for many years, but somehow the time was never right (translation: I was unable to find excuses). It's a short-term crash diet, based on eating unlimited quantities of a cabin-based soup which costs more calories to digest than it provides, so you can eat enough to feel full but keep losing weight quickly.

The diet is augmented by different added foods on each day. You eat as much of the soup as you want, and as much as you want of the other foods for the day – in my case, Day 1: Fruit (except bananas). In theory the selection of additional foods is carefully chosen to maintain your levels of vital chemicals so you do not get sick. I'm told the diet was originally developed by doctors to cleanse the system and reduce weight before heart surgery, but I have not been able to find evidence or a listing of the "original" diet. There are a whole bunch of variations floating around on the basic recipe and schedule.

So this morning I went down to my fantastic Italian greengrocers, and came back with a carrier bag stuffed full of green things. After a lot of chopping, peeling and simmering, here's what it looks like: The bulk of my diet for the next week.

Actually, it's not bad at all. With loads of onion, celery and tomato in, it's got the base of a good stock mixture (and some of my own vegetable stock cubes in for a boost), and it's well seasoned with thyme, basil, bay and black pepper. It's really pretty tasty, although I've quickly found myself adding a bit of salt to each bowl or it really is bland.

Obviously there's not much in the way of effects today, though I have felt a bit up and down energy-wise, particularly as I missed breakfast (since I did not have anything allowed by the diet in the house to eat) and then ate a lot at lunchtime. With heavy-digesting foods like this, it's important to spread them out through the day rather than eating big meals, as anything hard to digest brings your energy levels down for a while (the reason why people get sluggish in the afternoon when they eat big lunches).

My brain is already at work trying to screw things up, and I keep imagining that I'm craving chocolate or meat, very unilaterally since my last "normal" meal was last night and that's really not time for your body to feel deprived. I have been enjoying the fruit enthusiastically, experiencing the intense flavors and sweetness much more than I normally would have, but I think that's very much psychological too. I've been drinking a lot of water and green tea, and the digestive workout seems to be making me quite stormy. Otherwise I feel as good as ever, really. I'm even looking forward to a supper of fruit tonight when I settle in to watch a new episode of House.

Obviously, a crash diet is not a longterm solution to weight loss. Right now my normal diet is pretty good – I'm mostly off the overprocessed rubbish foods, I eat a fair bit of veg and fruit, very little out of the freezer (except things I've cooked and frozen myself) and I'mm reasonably good about sweets. Week on week I am losing a little bit of weight. It's just that the mountainous task (and stomach) ahead of me are making me feel pretty demotivated. Hopefully this quick boost will help me feel more motivated to be strict with myself and stick with the exercise.

What Do I Do If I Receive a Notice of Deposition?

If you have just received Notice of Deposition, it is important to take it seriously. There are certain responsibilities expected of you, under law. Continue reading to learn what it means to receive this type of notice, what is expected of you, and what you need to do. Take comfort in knowing that you are not in any trouble, and you are already in the right place.

Understand the Meaning

A Notice of Deposition is simply a legal phrase that describes a formal meeting that involves a recorded interview under oath. If you received one, it means that you are being asked to provide answers under oath as a witness to a case. It is an official interview session that is used for two primary reasons: to learn what you know pertaining to the case in question, and as evidence for later use. Even if you have nothing to do with the lawsuit or parties involved, you can still be asked to come in for a deposition. The Indiana Rules of Trial Procedure allows it. Either parties in a lawsuit can have anyone provide a deposition 20 days after the lawsuit is filed.

What to Expect

During a deposition, you will be asked questions by a person called an examiner. They will ask you a succession of questions to see if you have any useful knowledge that they can use as evidence to help their client win their case. This part may feel uncomfortable since some people describe it as an interrogation, but with the right knowledge, you can get through your deposition smoothly. Here are some important tips to remember to help you with your upcoming deposition date:

Get Prepared – You may want to think about hiring an attorney to protect your rights during the deposition. Even if you are not part of the lawsuit and simply a witness. They can also give you a mock session prior to the meeting that will help you prepare for what's to come.

Stick to the Truth – Since you are under oath, it is important that you remain entirely truthful during the entire deposition process. Furthermore, be sure to only answer the question asked, and only answer what you know. Sticking to the truth will also make it easier to answer the examiner's questions and reduce any anxiety.

Remain Calm and Cooperative – Never get defensive, combative, angry, or emotional during a deposition. Remain calm and professional, and refrain from raising your voice or arguing with the examiner.

HS Foods From the Beyond Calories Diet – How Do They Work?

The new 10 day diet plan from the creators of the famous Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet is called Beyond Calories. This diet is based on HS foods.

What are HS foods and how can they help you lose weight?

HS foods are High Satiety foods, that is foods which naturally make you feel full after you eat a small portion of them.

You see, one of the reasons so many people become overweight is that they eat a lot of low satiety foods. These are foods which make you crave more and more foods both physically and mentally when you eat them. This leads you to eat more and more food, much more than you need, and you end up gaining fat and excess pounds.

There's more to creating a High Satiety menu than simply sticking a bunch of HS foods into it. That's where the Beyond Calories diet comes into play in a most effective way. This is a 10 day diet based on HS foods and the correct combination of them. By combining

HS foods in an optimal way, which is what the Beyond Calories diet does, you create a high satiety menu. In this way, you eat nutritionally rich food which keeps you full through the day.

By eating a high satiety menu, you naturally consume less empty calories. HS foods diet makes it easier to avoid food cravings and binging. It also makes your weight loss much more easy to attain.

Beyond Calories can only be gotten by ordering the Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet. These 2 diets are highly effective either together or by themselves. They both produce a fast and continuous weight loss.

Important Plastics Used in 3D Printing

In the last few years, we have witnessed the magical world of 3D printed clothing. From high-fashion to high-technology, the 3D printed clothing is amazing to marvel at. More than the marvellous design capabilities available under 3D printing, the engineering used behind printing fabric like materials is simply astonishing.

Most of the 3D printed clothes look interesting but many of them are less comfortable and much less wearable. However, this does not mean that all 3D printed products are non-wearable. The 3D printed textiles made from FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printers can be worn. Some pretty good 3D printed neckties are already available in the market.

The basic thing that makes 3D printing so amazing is the material used to create designs. Although now we have metal, ceramic, sugar or styrofoam to virtually create anything in 3D printing, it all started with the 'plastic', which is still the prime raw material in 3D printing. So, here we describe the main plastic used in 3D printing in the textile industry:

PLA (Polylactic Acid): This is a bio-plastic that is dominating the world of 3D printing. PLA is made from a renewable organic resource such as cornstarch or sugarcane. In the textile industry, the PLA-based filaments show great adhesion to PLA fabrics. As it can be reinforced with all types of materials, it is used in the manufacturing of smart fabrics that helps in enhancing the functionality of the textile products.

This is a tough resistant material with a matte and opaque quality. There are no toxic vapors or odours when heated. This bio-plastic is great for 3D printing because it is environment-friendly, available in a variety of colors and can be used as a resin or filament. The material does not get shrink after 3D printing. All these properties make PLA a good component for developing sustainable textiles.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene): It is a terpolymer made by polymerising styrene and acrylonitrile with polybutadiene. This is another widely used bio-plastic in 3D printing. It can form filaments easily and is durable, strong, heat-resistant, flexible and cost-effective. A drawback if ABS is that it creates a slightly unpleasant smell when heated and its vapors contain nasty chemicals. Therefore, one needs good ventilation to get off these irritating fumes. Because of this drawback, 3D hobbyists prefer PLA over ABS.

PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol): This is a synthetic polymer and is water-soluble. PVA is a new class of 3D printing materials that are used to make supports that hold 3D prints in place. This is not used for making finished products but create support for portions of a product. Once the product is finished, you can immerse it in water and PVA support structures will dissolve leaving rest of the insoluble print behind. In 3D printing, this is mainly used as glue, thickener or a packaging film.

Although the range of materials used in 3-dimensional printing technology may evolve with time and rising interest of customers, these are the three mainstream plastics currently popular for all 3D printing applications.

Negative Calorie Diet Review

You may have heard of a new diet plan called the negative calorie diet plan . What is a negative calorie, you might ask? Is that supposed to be the opposite of a calorie, you might wonder?

As you go through each day, your body expends energy in measurable units of calories . So if you eat a slice of bread, your body now has seventy calories more of energy at its disposal to use. As you go through the day, every activity you perform, whether it is something active like walking, talking, jumping, running, working, or playing, your body will burn those calories. If you burn more calories than you intake, you will lose weight. If you burn fewer calories than you intake, you end up gaining weight. If you burn as many calories as you take in, you will maintain your weight.

But did you know that your body burns calories passively, even when you are not doing anything? Even when you are sleeping, your body is burning calories. That is because your body expends energy even to perform the passive, involuntary bodily functions like breathing, digesting food, and pumping blood through your veins and arteries.

Once you grasp this concept that your body consumes energy in order to perform passive activities, it becomes very easy to understand the concept of "negative calories".

What if you could eat a food that takes more energy for your body to digest than the actual number of calories itself ? For example, if you could eat an apple that contains sixty-five calories. But your body may expend one hundred calories just to be able to digest it . So, these results in a "negative calorie intake" of thirty-five calories. By eating an apple, you actually burned thirty-five calories

On the other hand, a slice of pie that contains five hundred calories that takes your body one hundred calories to digest results in a four hundred calorie gain for your body.

The negative calorie diet plan involves integrating these negative calorie foods into your daily intake. You do not need to starve in order to follow this diet. When followed properly, you can lose at least fourteen pounds in two weeks on the negative calorie diet plan.

Chicken Soup Recipe – Making Your Own

This article is not so much about my own Chicken Soup Recipe, but more about how you can develop your own unique version. I think everyone who likes to cook chicken should be able to make a good soup with it. It's a great way to use up leftovers, and an even better way to make sure you get enough vegetables in your diet.

While there are countless variations of techniques and ingredients in chicken soup, there is one constant that no one can do without: a good stock or broth. Without this your soup will have a watery taste, and that is no fun to eat. Also, a tasty broth is more likely to be healthier for you, since where there is flavor there is usually also nutrients. A good stock typically contains some gelatin, which comes from dissolved collagen from bones and connective tissue. Gelatin is great for carrying both flavor and nutrients because it can interact with organic molecules better than water can.

So does that mean you have to make your own chicken stock in order to have a good chicken soup recipe? Not necessarily, as there are many good chicken stocks available at grocery stores. I prefer the kind you get in boxes, but the canned stuff is usually good too. I'll use the powdered or cubed stuff in a pinch, but I find they have too much salt and other flavor enhancers for my liking. I'm also not sure how much gelatin they contain, if any.

However, if you do prefer to make your own stock, there are many excellent Web sites available that give instructions. Basically all you have to do is simmer chicken bones along with some comments, carrots and celery for an hour or two. Regardless of how you make it, there is one piece of advice I can give you that will always work: after the stock is made, remove the solid ingredients, and boil off some of the water to reduce the amount to half. Concentrating the stock will intensify the flavor, making everything you use it in that much more flavorful.

After the stock, your next choice is which vegetables to use. I've already mentioned the classic onion, carrot and celery mix, but there are so many other choices available. From time to time I enjoy some chopped spinach in my chicken soup, or any other leafy green I happen to have on hand. Frozen peas are another great option, but remember to add them about 5 minutes before the soup is done cooking, unless you prefer your peas mushy. Tomatoes are another great vegetable to use in chicken soup, and they have the added benefit of bolstering a weak-tasting stock. You can also use "substitute" vegetables to replace some of the classics: fennel in place of celery, leeks or shallots for the onions, parsnips for carrots, etc. And let's not forget about all the peppers out there, both hot and mild!

When it comes to vegetables, I usually just add whatever I have in my refrigerator. Any leftovers or veggies that are about to expire become candidates. I usually avoid root vegetables as they take longer to cook through, but if they are already cooked then they are fair game too. If not, then just chop them up into small pieces so they cook more quickly.

Next in the list of ingredients to select is the type of starch to add. There are so many to choose from that there is no way I could list them all, but one thing to think of is how much the starch you choose will thicken the broth. This will depend on how quickly it dissolves into the broth and how long you will be cooking it for. Most people do not want to thicken their chicken soup too much, so pasta is the usual choice for most people. If there is one variant of chicken soup that is more famous than all the others, it would definitely be chicken noodle soup.

But noodles are far from being the only choice. Brown rice is my go-to starch for chicken soup. Like barley, it will thicken a broth given time, but it typically takes more than an hour for that to happen. I like how it swells in the liquid of the soup, and how it adds just a touch of viscosity to it. It helps the flavor of the soup cling to the tongue for just a little bit, enhancing the taste experience.

Lentils are a very healthy starch to use, and there are a lot of varieties to choose from. Red lentils will practically dissolve into the soup, while the little green gems known as Puy lentils will keep their shape almost forever. At the other end of the spectrum are potatoes, which given sufficient time will thicken a soup enough to stand your spoon in it.

If you want to go for big-time comfort food, then dumplings should be your selection. Personally I have never made dumplings, but I know some people that swear by it.

Lastly, you need to decide what spices and herbs to go for. Chicken has such a neutral flavor that you should pay more attention to matching your spices to your vegetables you used. The basic spices that are considered "classic" would be parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme … just as in the song. These work very well when you use the classic veggies. But when you use other vegetables, then there are some really good combinations available. For instance, if you used tomatoes then you would be making a mistake to leave out the basil. Spinach and marjoram work very well together, while tarragon and fennel make a good pair.

But do not think just about spice and herbs. If you want a really refreshing flavor, add a bit of lemon juice. Do not forget about the garlic either, as it works with almost all other ingredients. And lastly, do not be afraid to add a bit of spice. You do not need to add so much that it burns the palate; just a little will heighten all the other flavors.

Of course, I'd be remiss if I left chicken itself out of the discussion. Any cooked or raw chicken will do, but you'll find that white meat is the best in soups. Dark meat, while tastier, has a much higher fat content and bids to make a soup feel greasy. White meat for soups and pastas, dark meat for everything else is the rule that I go by.

I hope you are not disappointed that there was not a recipe that you could follow to the letter in this article. The truth is I do not usually cook that way anymore. I found I made much better meals once I understood the basics of whatever meal I was making I could improvise and make improvements and substitutions based on my tastes, who I was cooking for, and what I had in stock.

A Healthy Pregnancy Diet For A Healthy Baby

It's an old belief that you should be eating for two when you are pregnant. Pregnancy is absolutely no excuse for you to gorge on food. The essence of the adage is that you should eat for two in terms of the amount of required nutrients you're passing on to your child.

Zinc and calcium intake should increase by 50%, and folic acid and iron intake should be doubled. A healthy pregnancy diet differs from a non-pregnant woman's diet in that a pregnant woman is required to increase her intake by as much as 150 calories during the first trimester, and up to 250-300 calories beginning every day thereafter.

The pregnancy diet plan

Your diet during pregnancy must be well-rounded – that is, it must include representative foods from all food groups. Use the USDA food pyramid as your guide in planning your daily meals.

An ideal pregnancy diet must include 4 or more servings of protein, veggies, and dairy; 2-4 servings of your favorite fruits; 6-11 servings of grains; and a minimum of 3 servings of protein. Consume high-fiber foods and those rich in minerals such as iron and zinc.

You may still use salt and sugar but you have to use them sparingly. Avoid foods rich in preservatives. They would not do you and the baby any good. The importance of folic acid, likewise, could never be overemphasized.

The lack of folate in the pregnancy diet has been linked to neural tube defects such as spina bifida. The most critical stages are the first weeks after conception. Women who are planning to conceive are advised to consume 800 micrograms of folate everyday.

If you are a vegetarian, have certain health problems, or have been on weight-control pills, it is likely that your folic acid reserves are depleted – requiring the need for supplements. Vegetarians, especially, should consult with an expert to review their entitlement diet.

What to avoid

To stay on the safe side, eliminate foods that have been known to cause harm to you or the baby from your pregnancy diet. Raw seafood such as sushi, sashimi, oysters, squid, and the like must be avoided. Raw meat should likewise be avoided, so keep rare steaks and meat that's undercooked.

A healthy pregnancy diet also should not include milk that has not undergone the pasteurization process, as well as soft cheeses. You can include deep-sea fish such as tuna in your pregnancy diet, but these can not be consumed daily. One important rule of thumb is to eat everything in moderation.

Alcohol and caffeine should be avoided from the earliest moment possible until even months after childbirth. If you need a caffeine fix, then one cup of coffee a day would suffice.

It goes without saying that prohibited drugs are a no-no for all pregnant women. There have been hundreds of research proving how much damage these drugs can cause to both mothers and their babies. In many cases, take of these harmful substitutes has led to stillbirths.


Although there is no definitive scientific explanation to cravings, researchers claim that they are our bodies' natural way of taking in the substances our systems need at that time. If those that you crave for are inherently good for your pregnancy diet, then it's okay to indulge.

Dog Food – The Right Diet For Your Dog

When you buy food for your dog, its easy to be overwhelmed by all the choices you have, and on top of that you have to worry about all the negative things you hear and read about commercial dog food products. This has left many dog ​​owners confused and stuck when it comes to picking a good diet for their pets, and it makes them wonder about the perfect healthy diet for their furry family members … is there one?

Is it as simply as knowing what should go into your dog? Yes it is, and it's nutrients. A dog needs a mix of protein, carbohydrates, good fat, vitamins, minerals and water. You can check this on the label of a dog food product or you can make the meal right at home on your own. As long as your dog is getting these important nutrients, its close to the safe side.

The next step is to make a decision on the ingredients. You can get enough nutrients from meat, vegetables, starch and fruit. Your good choices of meat are lamb, poultry, fish, lean beef and pork, depending on what's available. Also depending on your budget, you can choose organic vegetables or what is easy to find.

For your starch, the browns are good. Brown rice, brown pasta oatmeal and potatoes are okay, but stay away from grains. Dogs can not digest grains well, and grains have unnecessary nutrients. It's best to pick whole-wheat products for your dogs so they get the extra fiber, vitamins, and minerals that they need.

Some commercial dog food brands have the above in a cute little package. Some commercial dog food brands on the other hand may not be too good for your dogs. This is because they mix byproducts in the food such as bird beaks and feathers, meat organs, and other undesirable ingredients. The rule that most dog owners have followed and continue to follow is not to feed your dog something that you would not eat.

The rule though does not work the other way around; your dog can not and should not eat everything that you can. Some of the things you eat can be toxic to your dogs, such as chocolate, raisins, grapes, garlic and onions, so do not go feeding your dog your left over food or share your midnight snacks with it. Your dog may beg and plead, but it's in his best interests not to take in what could be toxic to his health.

So now that you have learned the 101 on feeding your dog, next is the type of food diet your dog will be following. You have 3 choices. The first is commercial dog food, which is what you will find in the pet shop or on display in the supermarket. These are usually cooked up to fit your dogs' stages of life, kind of like babies milk. A choice of organic commercial food is also available (for a price of course), but this is expected since the cheap brands of dog food do not always have the right healthy ingredients you're looking for your dog.

BARF is up next. This stands for Bones And Raw Food. The fact here is that that's what dogs in the wild have to eat and some people will insist on it. They have a point, but having a point does not convince everyone. If this is your pick, just be careful, and get all your facts straight.

Lastly, you can choose a homemade diet for your dog. Here you can feed your dog cooked meat, fresh veggies, some starch, and fruit. Its pretty much what we ourselves would eat. This does not have any certificate of proof behind it, but some dog owners who prefer giving their dog a natural food diet will tell you that their dogs are in good shape, happy and also live longer lives.

These tips, along with your good judgment, should keep your dogs at their prime.

Gout vs Diet

The cause of gout is a high blood level of uric acids which is a waste product. The waste product is a breakdown of purines which are substances naturally found in your body. Purines are also found in several types of food.

The treatment of gout, in times past, included very strict dietary regimens but because of medications that are used to combat gout the regiments are not as harsh as they once were.

There still are some recommended dietary modifications though as they can greatly help your chances of avoiding gout flare-ups. Many medications for gout cause many, potentially serious, side effects so dietary modifications can be a better option than the medications.

Some of the foods that are high in purines and should be avoided are liver, brain, kidney, sweetbread, anchovies, peas, beans, mackerel, mincemeat, scallops, muscles, and herring. Other foods such as poultry, meat, and fish have lesser amounts of purines so it is suggested that they are eaten in moderation.

Other ways that you can lower the risk of gout naturally are:

1.Avoiding alcohol altogether or only drinking it in moderation, sometimes saving yourself for special occasions only. Drinking a lot of alcohol increases the risk of hyperuricemia, as the alcohol gets in the way of the natural removal of uric acids from the body. If you have gout and especially if you are having a gout attack alcohol should be avoided completely.

2.Make sure to drink plenty of fluids to flush the system of uric acids. Aim for around 2 liters of water a day, more if you are exercising or have a physical job.

3.Try to maintain a healthy weight. The more excess weight you are holding the more stress is then put on your joints increasing the likelihood of gout.

4.Try to lose excess weight but do not do so by rapid weight loss diets as they can increase uric acid levels in the blood. In weight loss also avoid low-carb diets as they are high in fat and protein. Consuming too much of these types of foods can increase your chances of developing hyperuricemia.

Foods that are low in purines will help in keeping gout at bay. Below is a list of foods which are low in purines.

1.Breakfast – Cereals and eggs, coffee, tea, oatmeal, eggs, fruits, juices, cheese (low fat), milk, and peanut butter.

2.Lunch – Nuts and peanut butter, pasta macaroni, soups, cream style soups, cheeses (low fat) and broths

3.Dinner – Pasta, macaroni, eggs, vegetables, exports and cereals, low-fat cheeses and soups.

Other foods and food items low in purines are gelatin, fats and oils (in small amounts), soda, sugar, syrups, and other sweets in moderation.

As with anything, moderation is the key to a low purine diet. Some foods which have a moderate purine level are: beef, lamb, pork, vegetables such as mushrooms, asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, wheat germ, all types of yeast and gravies.
It is OK to have these foods as long is it is in moderation. Even foods that are high in purines can be eaten occasionally unless you have gout or are having an attack of gout.
