A Time to Cleanse

Don’t eat anything after 7pm.

I heard that tip on Oprah. The rationale had something to do with losing weight and the fact that it’s easier to burn calories during the day rather than at night when we’re watching TV, reading, or sitting around talking. Part of it sounded reasonable (I guess), but another part of it sounded like a silly rule or restriction that may or may not be good for a person’s particular body. After the show, I forget the tip completely and ate past 7pm a lot.

When I began Clean Eating, I started thinking about that suggestion again. Gradually, I made dinner my final meal of the day and stopped mindless snacking afterwards. My husband and I usually don’t eat until 8pm anyway, but there was another reason why I stuck to the plan: I finally understood the rationale behind Oprah’s tip. Marilyn Polk sums it up nicely in one of the cookbooks I’m reading:

“Our bodies need a chance to cleanse, heal, and rest. Most Americans are so busy poking food into their mouths throughout the day and night that their bodies do not have a chance to cleanse, heal, or rest.”

It’s like the Eagles song based on the bible verse: There is a time for everything. A time to live and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to uproot. The idea of giving my body a time eat – and then later a time to cleanse – made so much sense. Simple. Good. Common sense. And of course, it’s only a guideline. If I’m ravenous after 8pm by all means I will eat something! That makes sense too. Š

Blue Zones

Blue Zones are places in the world where people live “astoundingly long lives” – for example, reaching the age of 100 three times the rate of Americans. And suffering a fifth the rate of heart disease. Imagine being able to hold your great-great-grandchild one day . . .

I first learned of Blue Zones when one of the editors I work with went on a “Quest” to the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica, one of the four Blue Zones (the others are Okinawa, Japan, Loma Linda, California, and Sardinia, Italy).

Dan Buettner, a journalist who worked extensively on researching these communities, has come out with a book titled The Blue Zone. I want to read the book in context, so I’m refraining from skipping ahead, but based on the Blue Zones website and other articles I’ve read, I know some of the lifestyle practices of centurions are (1) plant based diets (not necessarily vegetarian, but plant-based); (2) laughter; (3) spirituality; (4) family; and (5) physically active lives (like gardening and laboring).

Just because Washington DC isn’t a Blue Zone doesn’t mean my body and my house can’t be one.

It’s Easier to Find Vardenafil HCL for Sale Online

One of the most embarrassing situations a man could ever have is being unable to produce an erection during sexual intercourse.  This not only insults the female partner, but it also questions the man’s erectile functions.  If this situation occurs frequently for the man, it is not only frustrating for him, but it may also trigger fear as the possibility that he is now impotent is becoming much clearer.  Erectile dysfunction (ED) is perhaps the most undesirable sexual condition a man could ever have as this condition not only prevents him from having successful sexual intercourses, but also psychologically torments him because the main aspect of what makes him a man is no longer in functioning order.

Fortunately, there are now PDE5 inhibitor drugs like vardenafil hcl that can help him achieve the erection he needs for sex.   These ED medications are very effective because they facilitate effective transport of blood towards the cavities inside the penis.  The best thing about PDE5 inhibitor drugs is that using such drug does not give you an instant erection but the capacity to produce one.  This means that as long as the drug is in effect in your system, you will be capable of producing an erection when sexually stimulated.

Vardenafil hcl is the generic version of the popular and very effective ED medication, Levitra.  However, due to the high cost of branded ED medications, most men with ED who cannot afford such luxury, especially if they frequently need to take the medication on a daily basis due to an active sex life, prefer to use Levitra’s generic alternative because both drugs basically have the same overall effect.  The problem though is finding vardenafil hcl for sale.  There are hardly any pharmacies that have vardenafil hcl for sale on their shops.  And those that do have vardenafil hcl for sale in their shops may not even be in your locality, thus making it hard for you to locate these stores with vardenafil hcl for sale.

If you are looking for vardenafil hcl for sale, your best bet will be to look for it online.  It is actually easier to find vardenafil hcl for sale online because you allow the search engine to do the search work for you.  The truth is that there are many online merchants that have vardenafil hcl for sale among their list of products.  There are even online merchants with websites particular to having just vardenafil 20mg for sale.  With the number of websites to choose from, all you need to do is find the right one that makes the best offer in terms of price per pill along with shipping costs.

Most men with ED these days actually buy their ED medications online.  It is not only convenient buying such products online, but you are able to maintain secrecy over your embarrassing situation as well.  The truth is, most men will not discuss their erectile issues with other men or even their friends.  This makes the ability to buy ED treatment products online a great relief because you are safe from prying eyes over the products you are buying, as is the case when you buy at your local pharmacy.
