wine on your dietRed wine eaten during a meal gives greater benefits to the circulatory system than beer or heavier alcohol. International Studies show a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease in countries where wine consumption is popular than those in which beer and more powerful spirits are being ruled.

Red wine contains more different ingredients than other alcohols; These ingredients can positively affect the clotting of blood. By reducing the degree of oxidation of LDL-cholesterol – one of the key stages of atherosclerotic plaque formation

Many sources praise the wine for it that contains resveratrol. Rightly, because it’s a golden ingredient! Everything looks nice in theory as it is in practice? Depending on the species, the wine contains only 1,47-4,39 mg resveratrol/litre. If you are not going to drink 505 liters of red wine (challenge accepted!), do not burn yourself to an effective dose of resveratrol (1g). However, it is nice to test the conclusions of the scientists on the;).

Unfortunately, the beneficial effect of healthy substances contained in wine is minimizeded by the presence of ethyl alcohol – which is that we deliver antioxidants, since the presence of alcohol in the diet intensifies the production of free radicals and increased stress?

All reports about the impact of the tendency of wine assume eating it in moderation (according to most scholars a moderate amount is 150-200 ml per day), and studies on diet śródziemnmorskiej stress that the more significant the impact on health are other features of the Mediterranean diet (high consumption of fish, olive oil and other sources of unsaturated fatty acids with positive effects on the cardiovascular system)

How does it end up being of low-income areas action? A little as if they eat potato chips with the addition of chilli, deluding himself that in this way we will improve myself;) metabolism.

Consumption of wine for better health, it is quite naïve. Despite all the red wine is pure alcohol, and no doubt is one of the least unhealthy. Impact of healthy wine consumption has been shown in the case of people drinking moderate amounts of (150-200 ml) red wine about 5 times a week.

How many calories has a wine?

Red wine calories-about 300 kcal/half bottle

Calorific value of red wine depends on the composition of that type. Syrah has 293 kcal/half bottle, and Red Zinfandel 310 kcal/half bottle. It can be assumed that a half bottle of red wine has 300 calories.

White wine calories-about 290 kcal/half bottle

White wine has a slightly less calories than red. For example, a half bottle of Pinot has 289 calories, and Riesling 284 kcal.

How many calories does a bottle of wine have? – About 600 calories (kilocalories)

As you can see, the calorific value of wine is not dramatic – you can plan your meals during the day to avoid excess calories. The biggest downside to drinking wine when you want to lose weight is the fact that wine increases your appetite. In addition, even small doses of alcohol reduce self-control, so it’s easier to eat something that is avoided every day. And here lies the crux of the problem: wine will be very fattening if eat much to wine;). It’s a good idea to plan healthy, low calorie snacks and take care not to go to a party with an empty stomach. Thus zapobiegniesz the generation of a positive energy balance.

The calorific value of wine depends on the composition of the ingredients that create them. The standard wine bottle has a capacity of 0.75 litres. To facilitate the calculation, it can be assumed that a bottle of wine provides 600 calories (technically kilocalories – kcal). You can hit a bottle that will have 550 calories and on the one with 650 also.

Who cares?!

If you already drink wine, enjoy it! Enjoy the taste, aroma and atmosphere of the surrounding. Do not lose your weight by the passion, do not give up all the pleasures you have practiced before the diet. There is really no diet or diet – either you change your lifestyle or nothing changes. I prefer this first option with little shortcomings than continuing with past habits of fear that a healthy lifestyle is too difficult.

It is not, if you do not make it difficult and you do not give yourself believe that your diet must be perfect to be effective and good for you.

Prayer points

The outcome of Niger’s recent elections has boosted hopes for a stable democracy. Despite fears of a flawed election process, Niger’s vote proved both credible and peaceful. However, the new government will face huge justice and poverty challenges. In 2010, the UN’s Human Development Index (using criteria of life expectancy, education and health) ranked Niger as 169th out of 171 countries. Less than half the population has access to safe water and communities often lack food for part of the year. Children are prone to diarrhoea, malnutrition and stunted growth. Pray that Niger’s new leaders will have the heart to rule with justice and determinedly tackle poverty. (Tearfund – April 2011)

Children and young adults forced to beg, sold into domestic service, used as labourers in mines and agriculture, and sexually exploited – this is the grim reality of trafficking in Niger and other countries in Africa. Students and graduates are not immune from these dangers and, sadly, young people who go against their parents’ beliefs and convert to Christianity are particularly at risk. Christian students in Niger long to respond to the injustices of society and to be part of helping others to see God’s kingdom come on earth. Please pray for them as they work to encourage church members to join with NGOs who are fighting people trafficking, inspire graduates to sustain this ministry, and equip students to help rescued children re-integrate into society. (IFES – March 2011)

Drought has turned to deluge in parts of Niger – and brought a load more trouble to many people weakened by hunger. For months, nearly half the country’s population has been left unable to feed themselves due to a lack of rain killing crops last year and vast amounts of livestock this year. Now a rain storm hitting the Azawak region has resulted in flash floods, killing many of the remaining animals. Drought and famine have also impacted neighbouring Chad, Mali, Burkina Faso and northern Nigeria. Pray for those in Niger reeling after the floods, that they receive help to get back on their feet. Give thanks for the much-needed rain but pray for regular weather patterns which are required for a good harvest and good pasture for the animals. (Tearfund – August 2010)

The Maures are a large people group spread across the semi-desert countries of North West Africa. They speak Hassaniya, a dialect of Arabic. There are marked social divisions within this people group, particularly between the Arab-Berber ‘white’ Maure, and the ‘black’ Maure, many of whom are descended from former slaves. In this totally Muslim society there has been little response to the gospel. Please pray for isolated believers to be encouraged as well as for radio, films and television programmes to be used as tools to lead people to ask more about the gospel. Finally, pray for opportunities for Christian workers to take the gospel message to villages and towns in the interior. (WEC International – September 2010)

In West Africa, millions are desperate for food. Bad harvests over a number of years mean that staple foods like grain have shot up in price by as much as 43 percent. At the same time, the value of cattle has plummeted. Families would normally trade their cattle for food but now they’re not worth enough. This means they have no money, and many people are eating just one meal a day. In Niger alone, a massive seven million people, half of the country’s population, need urgent help.

batheEspecially in autumn it is experienced by almost everyone: in the court dark and cold, and under a blanket warm and drowsy. In fact, you could just jump to bed and lie down to sleep. And then this stubborn thought appears: Do I need to wash today? The issue took a look at David Leffell, a head of dermatology at the Yale School of Medicine (USA).

about how often you need to take a shower, do not decide the rigid norm imposed by doctors, but rather targeting the social konwenansem intuition. In America and Europe the norm is one bath or a shower per day. As the Business insider gives, citing the data of Euromonitor International, the number of showers per month is increasing in the case of countries with a warm climate (an average of 11 baths a week in Brazil) and people who practise sports. Meanwhile, as Leffell convinces, so frequent baths are not a good idea.

How often do you take a shower?

One of the few guidelines for the number of weeks of bathing is recommendations for children. The American Dermatologic Society recommends one, two baths a week for children between 6. and 11. Years of age, unless the consolation came home very dirty and sweaty. It seems that this is not enough, but scientists argue that a small amount of dirt on the skin of a child will allow it to strengthen immunity.

Fortunately, the final judgement of doctors leaves parents who self-assess how their offspring need quick contact with water and soap.

What about adults?

Some dermatologists stand in the position that the shower twice a week is completely sufficient. Horror? Fortunately, doctors just add that the number of baths should depend on our sense of aesthetics and comfort. However, dermatologists (including the above-mentioned Leffell) hardly stand that kąpiemy a bit too often, which can negatively reflect on the condition of the skin.

How does the bath affect the skin?

The soap is made up of most of the fat and an alkaline substance which dissolves in water (e.g. salt or purified soda). These two components wipe off the skin with a layer of fat and oil that has accumulated since the last bath, dissolve it in water and drain dirt into the pipes with it. Likewise, the shampoo works, which flushes secreted by sebum sebaceous glands.

Therefore, according to Leffella, hair washing should also not be more frequent than every two to three days.

Rub in the fact that a long, hot shower with a decent scrubbing can be harmful to the skin. During its course not only do we deprive the skin of the protective layer, but also firmly wysuszamy it, which makes it susceptible to damage. What is more, a really hot bath and drying of the skin with a towel only enhances this undesirable effect.

As Leffell convinces, if we want to wash ourselves every day, we need to remember a few principles:

  1. Do not overdo it with hot water
  2. Do not kąp for more than 30 minutes (3 minutes fully enough)
  3. Use the lotion, especially just after leaving the shower, when the skin is still slightly moist.

Of course, the rules can safely approach Zdroworozsądkowo. After all, dry and slightly irritated skin (excluding cases of atopy) is not something specifically difficult to identify or cure. On the other hand, if someone does not feel like an evening shower… learning (within reasonable limits) is on its side!
