Gaining/Losing Weight

Anyone who has been to my blog before knows that I deal with problems gaining weight. However, I've figured out what I'm doing wrong, and how I can help others avoid my mistakes.


Now if you didn't know, three years ago, before I even turned vegetarian, I lost 15 pounds. I went from 105 to 90, and it quite frankly, scared the living hell out of me.


Again, as I always say, you must, must, must thoroughly educate yourselves. It is the most beneficial thing anyone can do for themselves. I realized the first thing I had done wrong. I didn't eat enough. I ate less than 2k calories everyday for 3 years, and now I decided to change my habits. In order for anyone to gain weight, you must eat more calories in a day. Up your intake by 500 each day until you notice yourself gaining weight. You don't have to force food down your own throat. Some bodies need different amounts. I need around 2k-3k calories in order to gain a pound every other day. My boyfriend on the other hand only needs a little around 2k or a little less and he can keep his weight like no problem.


BUT, you don't want to gain unhealthy weight. You shouldn't start eating tons of sugary foods just to gain weight. Incorporate more meals into your day. My day consists of 6 meals, each 500 calories. Those meals can include drinks to help achieve those 500 calories. You goal may be different, but you must find out what works for you. Do not eat 1k calorie meals though. I've tried, and it only ends up in constant belly aches. Anyone looking into gaining weight should also look into gaining muscle mass. This is the best form of gaining weight possible because muscle weighs more than fat plus it's healthier, much much healthier for everyone and anyone.




Same thing goes for people looking to lose weight. I don't care how much anyone tells you to exercise, blah blah blah. You know what I mean. Everyone is always saying exercise is the key to losing weight. Well, they were dead wrong. Even though you are losing calories by exercising, it may not be enough. Count your calories in a day. See how much you eat. Continue exercising BUT eat 500 calories less in your day. If that doesn't help, go another 500 calories less and spread your meals out and eat more fiber to feel full. The worst thing you can do is starve yourself, so don't believe in those crap diets everyone is talking about. They can only worsen your energy and body.  And diets will never work for losing weight. NEVER! They will help you lose some for a short period of time until you continue your old ways, so stick to a daily regime and you'll never be disappointed.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
