Basics On How To Lose Weight

Everyone can relate to the burden of wanting to lose a few pounds, Unfortunately, most of us have no problem gaining fat but trying to burn fat is a bigger problem ! All of us kown that best way to lose weight is with exercise. But that is incredibly vague! Before you go to loss weight, you’d better kown something about burning you fat.

 If you're trying to lose weight, you must kown how your body take calories for fuel could make a difference in how you approach your weight loss program. Fat, carbs and protein are our energy resource. Most people want to use fat for energy, which makes sense. The more fat we can use as fuel, the less fat we'll have in our bodies. However, using more fat doesn't automatically lead to losing more fat.

Firstly, you must kown some basic facts about how your body gets its energy:
  • The body primarily uses fat and carbs for fuel. A small amount of protein is used during exercise, but it's mainly used to repair the muscles after exercise.
  • The ratio of these fuels will shift depending on the activity you're doing.
  • For higher intensity exercise, such as fast-paced running, the body will rely more on carbs for fuel than fat. That's because the metabolic pathways available to break down carbs for energy are more efficient than the pathways available for fat breakdown.
  • For long, slower exercise, fat is used more for energy than carbs.
  • When it comes to weight loss, it doesn't matter what type of fuel you use. What matters is how many calories you burn as opposed to how many calories you take in.
When it comes to weight loss, what matters is burning more calories, not necessarily using more fat for energy. And, the harder you work, the more calories you'll burn overall. Think about it this way: When you sit or sleep, you're in your prime fat-burning mode. But, you've probably never contemplated the idea of sleeping more to lose weight, as lovely as that thought is. Here is a breakdown of the best exercises to burn the highest amount of calories and get you toned up in no time!
Spin/Cycle Classes: Every gym offers spin classes, and they are a great addition to any workout. Don’t have a gym membership, or prefer outdoor activities? Ride your bike rigorously outside for the exact same effect!

: The dreaded synonym of cardio! Even though this is most people’s least favorite part about working out, it is one of the easiest ways to lose the pounds quickly. It also tones your legs and butt! Run for as long as you can, and increase your time each time you step on the treadmill!

Step Aerobics :
Old school, but a classic weight loss tool! You can burn up to 800 calories in just one hour!  This exercise targets all parts of your body, especially the ones you can afford to lose a few from. Targeting your butt, hips, and legs (every woman’s problem areas) this is a create class to tone up!

Elliptical Machine :
This machine is a great cardio workout, without feeling like you’re about to keel over! They tone as well has give you an amazing cardio workout, with the possibility of burning upwards of 600 calories in an hour.

: This is one of the highest rated exercises to lose weight. It tones every muscle in your body, and at the same time you are getting a great cardio workout.

Yoga/Pilates: These classes/exercises should be used in addition to your extensive cardio routine. They are designed to tone and stretch the body, which everybody needs. But they alone will not aid in losing weight. Both exercises are great for after your cardio workout – you’ll feel great! It also helps with reducing soreness from your intense cardio routine!

Tips on Loss fat:
  • One thing we know is that exercising at lower intensities will use more fat for energy. This basic premise is what started the theory of the 'fat burning zone,' or the idea that working in a certain heart rate zone (around 55 to 65 of your maximum heart rate) will allow your body to burn more fat.
  • You’d better no take in protein and carborhydrates at one meal, It means you couldn’t eat meat and bread at the same time . Beacuse, sugar and protein easy to combine and pack into fat.
  • Keep warm and have more water per day. Plenty of water and body temperature would promote metabolism and burn more calories in your body.

How to Tie a Tie

Men's neckwear hasn't really changed all that much over the last century. Men's shirts have collars that are now sewn on, instead of buttoning onto a collarless shirt. Ties go through phases of getting a bit longer or shorter, or a tad wider or narrower, but overall, they don't change that much.
how much you konw about tie a tie? only one style all the year?
Here is a guide for both newbies just starting out with their first tie knot, as well as those more advanced students that would like to add some variety to their tie knots.  A few minutes of your time , choose a nice knot from here:

1.Windsor Knot


The Windsor Knot is the knot for special occasions. Typically English, it owes its name to the Duke of Windsor who made it popular. 
The knot is symmetrical, well balanced, and self-releasing. It is a large knot, which amply displays the fabric and design of the tie when wearing a closed jacket or coat, and helps keep the throat area warm during the colder winter months.

2.Pratt Knot

The Pratt knot is unusual in that its starting position is 'reverse side out', like the Nicky knot, a self-releasing variant of the Pratt. It uses less length than the Half Windsor or Windsor knots, and so is well suited to shorter ties or taller men. Unlike the Four in Hand knot, the Pratt method produces a symmetrical knot. It is of medium thickness.

 3.Bow Tie Knot


Although the necktie is more prominent in today's society, being seen at business meetings, formal functions, schools, and sometimes even at home, the bow tie is making a comeback with fun-formal events such as dinner, cocktail parties and nights out on the town. Bow ties, especially narrow "string ties," are still popular with men of all ages in the American South. After The Eleventh Doctor stated that "bowties are cool" on the hit TV series Doctor Who bowties have enjoyed a surge in popularity.
It is also much more common to wear a bow tie with a dinner jacket than it is to wear a necktie with one. Bow ties are also sometimes worn as an alternative to ascot ties when wearing a morning coat

4. Four in Hand Knot


The four-in-hand knot is a method of tying a necktie. Also known as a simple knot or schoolboy knot, the four-in-hand is believed to be the most popular method of tying ties due to its simplicity and style. Some reports state that carriage drivers tied their reins with a four-in-hand knot, while others claim that the carriage drivers wore their scarves in the manner of a four-in-hand, but the most likely etymology is that members of the Four-in-Hand Club in London began to wear the neckwear, making it fashionable. The knot produced by this method is on the narrow side, slightly asymmetric, and appropriate for most, but not all occasions.

5. Half Windsor Knot

The half-Windsor knot, also known as the single Windsor knot,[1] is a way of tying a necktie which produces a neat, triangular knot. It is larger than the four-in-hand knot and Pratt knot but smaller than the Windsor knot. The half-Windsor is derived from the full Windsor in that it is only brought up around the loop on one side rather than both. It works well with light- and medium-weight fabrics.
