Leo: the Hero: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Virgo: the Innocent: “Free to be you and me.”

Libra: the Lover: “You’re the only one.”

I really wish people on the internet didn’t throw around mental disorder diagnoses without actually understanding them like…mislabeling something on a site like this just misleads a ton of other impressionable ppl, and it’s irritating to see someone wrongly label symptoms or justify a mislabeling with this front of infallible authority when they’re just…wrong haha

It’s better to be cautious with labeling something a disorder when you don’t actually know if that’s what it is. That includes your favorite character or someone else’s symptoms…like it’s one thing to recommend researching a disorder/asking a professional about it or having a headcanon or something, but just, remember to be humble about it

WHAT THE HELL ARE MACROS?!

Now, if you didn’t already know, I’m a firm believer in IIFYM. IIFYM, or If It Fits Your Macros, is a diet plan that’s gained popularity over the last decade or so. 

Macros, though. What the fuck are those?!

Originally posted by kasugano

Basically, there are two major types of nutrients your body derives from food:
Macronutrients (aka Macros) - where your energy that keeps your body going comes from.
Micronutrients - vitamins and minerals that your body also needs to survive, but not as much. Like. volume wise.

So, if you look on a nutrition label, you’ll see three big things that people watch out for: Total fat, Carbohydrates, & Protein.

From carbs and protein, you get 4 calories per gram, but from fat, you get 9 calories per gram.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!

An increased daily intake of protein is necessary for people who pursue fitness. We eat it to build muscle, and stay full when we’re dieting down. Satiety means staying full, when we’re constantly hungry. (and honestly, I have no idea how @jaxblade does it but when you have an appetite like Luffy or Goku… just saying.)

From your carbohydrates, you should get at least 10-15 grams of FIBER per 1000 calories you eat a day. YOU NEED CARBS TO FUNCTION OH MY WORD. Those “carb free diets” are lowkey bullshit. Carbs are in absolutely everything and they’re a key component to how your body gets energy. Your brain can only really function on carbs, and the whole problem with Type 2 diabetes is that your body can’t take in the glucose from your bloodstream.

Just be smart. Don’t completely cut out rice or pasta or bread because that shit is delicious

oh yeah. Sugars are carbs. really simple ones, don’t eat them too often. That’s bad.

Last but ABSOLUTELY NOT LEAST, we’re talking about fats. Do not, abso-fucking-loutely DO NOT CUT OUT FATS COMPLETELY. That is NOT how you cut weight oH MY GOD

Fats *also* help with satiety. Your body *needs* them to make hormones. Every single one of your cells is made up of a *lipid bilayer* which meaaaans, there are fats. making up your cell membranes. Your brain needs them because *oh my god it’s made up of 60% fat*. The reason why it gives us 9 calories per gram (more than twice as much as proteins and carbs!!!) is because of the chemical structure. It’s broken down in the mitochondria. Now… I wonder why the mitochondria is called the powerhouse of the cell….

Now, of course, there are healthy fats and REALLY UNHEALTHY FATS, but I’ll cover that in another post really soon. <3

Basically, the key to IIFYM is balance. You don’t get a gold star for eating super clean 100% of the time. If you do, and enter this “diet” mentality, you as SO much more likely to fall off the fitness wagon.

This is a lifestyle change, not a temporary quick fix to lose a couple pounds.

“Did you know… you were my first kiss?”

It takes a moment to properly process what Sansa says and once he does, Jon gives her a curious look.

“Really?”

They had been rescued, after hours of running and hunting dinosaurs and trying to stay alive, after being bruised and battered and generally reconsidering if a more boring job was in order. They’d been rescued and were currently waiting for the Starks to arrive at the shelter.

7 Benefits of Exercise

1. Promotes work-life balance 
In theory, trying to find time to fit exercise into your already busy day should make you feel even more stressed out, and yet the opposite is true. Getting regular exercise actually helps people to feel like they have a better work-life balance. People who find time to exercise regularly say they are more confident in their ability to handle the balance between work and home life, and they report having less stress at work. 

2. Increases energy
 
Even though it might seem that exercise would zap you of all your energy, the truth is that a regular exercise routine can give you more energy throughout the day. Exercise stimulates the mitochondria cell components in your body, which produce the chemical that creates energy. And it is not only physical energy, but exercise can increase your mental energy as well.

3. Helps you heal faster 
Certain exercises can be beneficial for healing tendonitis, muscle tears, and even bone fractures. It might be hard to believe, but aerobic exercise may even help restore normal cognitive function in people who have suffered from a concussion. Be sure to talk with your doctor or therapist before starting any post-injury fitness to make certain that you are doing the most helpful exercises and using proper form.

4. Fights disease 
We have been told many times that a healthy diet is important for preventing cancer. More fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains with less saturated fats and fewer sugars should be helpful in building up our immune function. Research now shows that exercise can also help aid in cancer prevention by changing the body’s immune system. 

5. Helps you sleep
 
If you suffer from insomnia, you might want to consider getting more morning exercise. (This one I can tell you from personal experience is true). Plus, more vigorous exercisers are almost twice as likely as non-exercisers to consistently have a good night’s rest, and they are the least likely group to have sleep problems. 

6. Boosts immunity
 
Lots of people avoid the gym during cold and flu season for fear of picking up those nasty germs. While you might still want to avoid that treadmill that sneezy, wheezy guy just walked away from, do not abandon your workout entirely or you could end up sick anyway. According to the National Institutes of Health, moderate regular exercise can help your immune system fight off simple bacterial and viral infections.

7. Boosts your mood 
… well, that is, unless you are absolutely determined to be a grump. In that case, you are on your own. One study out of the University of Vermont found that your mood can be improved for to 12 hours post exercise. So if you want to have a happy day, consider hitting the gym. Exercise has been shown to improve the mood of pregnant women, who report significant improvements in their mood after taking up a regular exercise program. People who suffer from depression can also see improvement with regular exercise.

HOW TO NOT OVEREAT

- Take your time (eat slowly, you should be in no rush).  Give yourself 30 minutes to eat

- Drink water before you eat, and after every few bites.

- Eat the unhealthiest food on your plate last

- Stop eating when you are no longer hungry, this does not mean eat till you are full.  There is a difference.  Listen to your body.

- If you are eating out, either ask for a smaller portion or put half of your food in a to-go box before you start eating (or share food with someone)
