Mini-meals and why they are key to helping you lose weight May 2, 2016 Comments Off on Mini-meals and why they are key to helping you lose weight
There are a plethora of diet plans out there and only a handful of them are proven to be effective for a lot of people.
Some diet plans require you to eat only a few times a day while some diet plans encourage you to eat 6 times a day.
In this article, we will talk about the latter. Specifically, we are going to talk about “mini-meals” and why they are the key to helping you lose weight.
Now, it is (or was) common knowledge that you have to eat 3 large meals during the day. That is why it is subdivided into breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Although there really isn’t anything wrong when it comes to eating only three times a day, many people believe that it could be the culprit why they are gaining weight.
Then, diet plans that try to revamp this system have surfaced. There are now some diet plans that support eating more than three times a day, provided that you eat within your desired calorie range.
If you want to be healthy and you want to lose weight, you have to target a specific calorie limit. For men, it would be 1800 calories a day and for women, only 1500 calories. This should be the maximum number of calories you would want to consume in a given day.
Now that you know the healthy calorie limit per day, we will talk more about mini meals. The concept of mini meals is simple: eat 6 smaller meals all throughout the day so that you will not get hungry.
That is basically the idea of why mini meals are born. You see, some dietitians and even normal people agree that one of the main culprits of gaining weight is that people starve themselves (which is counterproductive by the way).
By starving yourself, you will fall into the trap of eating more calories than you should. Why is this the case? That is because your body needs food to fuel your metabolism. Without eating food, your body will go into “starvation” mode wherein your metabolism is the last thing your body wants to do.
By eating 6 smaller meals throughout the day, you will guarantee your body that it will get a steady supply of calories during the day. This also means that your body will constantly be burning fat in the process.
Now, this may sound counterintuitive to you, but it is actually true. It is one of the most effective ways to lose weight.
Do remember that your calorie limit should not exceed 1800 for men and 1500 for women, respectively. So, plan your meals ahead of time and if you can, get the help of a dietitian to help you plan your meals for the coming weeks or months.
Try eating 6 smaller meals and who knows, you might lose a lot more weight than starving yourself or eating just 3 meals a day.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua February 18, 2016 Comments Off on Sony Xperia M4 Aqua
It’s been a while since Sony released a mid-range mobile phone. The mobile phone company was busy creating flagship models that cater mobile phone enthusiasts.
Today, we’re going to talk about a new mobile phone from the company that is suitable for people who’re looking for good specs without the premium price tag.
Let’s talk about the design of the phone first. The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is akin to the Xperia Z3 in terms of the design. It still sports what the company calls their “Omnibalance” design in that it feels great no matter how you hold the phone.
Probably the only difference between the Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is that the former is made of metal while the latter is made of polycarbonate plastic. This isn’t to say that the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua’s durability is compromised; it just means that Sony has gone for a different material for this mobile phone.
On the front of the phone lies the screen, the front facing camera and an LED notification just beside it. One unique addition to this mobile phone is that it comes with a dedicated camera button. When pressed, the camera app will start and you can begin to snap some photos.
Now, you’re probably wondering why this mobile phone comes with an “Aqua” moniker to its name. Well, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a waterproof phone. Sony has made a lot of water-resistant phones over the past years, but this is a little different because the microSD and SIM slots are covered with plastic. This is to ensure that water cannot get past through. If you’re fond of bringing your mobile phone somewhere you’ll get wet (like in a pool or to the beach), then this phone is probably one of the best out there.
The display of the mobile phone is a little bit of a letdown. Whereas the Xperia Z3 has a 1080p screen, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua only comes with a 5-inch 720p screen resolution with a pixel density of 294ppip. The only redeeming quality of the screen is that it is an IPS display, so the viewing angles are fantastic. I just don’t like the resolution, though.
There is something that Sony boasts about the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua, however. The battery life of this mobile phone, at least, what Sony advertised, should last about 2 days. It comes with a 2,400 MaH and the phone also has the “STAMINA” technology where the phone will cut all power-sucking applications when needed to preserve the battery life.
I am a little bit skeptical about this because most other mid-range phones come with more than 2,400 MaH and yet their battery life does not last more than 2 days. Still, I think the STAMINA software does the job of preserving the battery so well.
As for the performance, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua does not disappoint as it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor with 4 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and the other 4 cores clocked at 1 GHz. I think part of why this mobile phone’s got a lengthy battery is because of the power-efficient processor.
Lastly, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua has a pretty okay camera with a 13-megapixel rear snapper and an aperture of f/2.0. It also has auto-focus and the camera app is the same as the one found in the Sony Xperia Z3.
With all of these being said, I believe that the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is one of the best mid-range phones on the market.
iOS 7 January 12, 2016 Comments Off on iOS 7
Mobile phones are awesome, right? From its inception up to now, mobile phones have saved quite a lot of our resources. From our time, and even to our lives, mobile phones are a Godsend.
The iPhone is an amazing phone, there’s no doubt about that. But, even with its hardware prowess, the mobile phone is useless without the operating system that powers every piece of hardware in it.
The first thing you will notice is the look and feel of the operating system. It now has a cleaner interface and the functions run a bit snappier than ever before. The icons also have a slimmer look now compared to other iOS versions.
The overall looks permeate through the entire iPhone ecosystem. For example, when you look at a photo before, the controls and panels will look exactly the same, which does not really highlight the actual photo.
But, with the iOS 7, the controls, panels, and lines will now blend with the overall color scheme of the photo you are looking at. It basically adapts to its environment, which is a pretty cool visual overhaul.
Now let’s take a look at a rather nice addition to the iPhone’s interface, the Control Center. Before, you need to dig deeper into the settings just to turn off the Bluetooth, for example. But with the iOS 7, there’s a new control center panel that has all the usual settings you wish to tweak.
These settings are Bluetooth, WiFi, “Do Not Disturb” option, Airplane Mode, Brightness slider, just to name a few. Gone are the days where you have to individually look for the items in the deepest darkest corners of the mobile phone.
Notifications and how they are perceived has been improved as well. The notifications panel now has a translucent look to match the overall feel of the operating system. Furthermore, you also have the option to view just the missed notifications or the notifications that are present today.
Another grand feature of the iOS 7 is the way it handles multi-tasking. When you multi-task using the iPhone, you will now have a preview of the applications, and they are arranged from the most recent to the last. Also, there is now an app tray situated at the bottom so that you can change from different apps immediately. Scrolling through the interface is also as smooth as silk.
The camera and photo album features have also been improved. The camera now has 4 additional accessing features: Photos, Videos, Panorama, and Photos in a square frame. There are also new filters for you to choose from.
The photos are also organized really well; the default being based on location and date. You can also pitch and zoom the photos to sort them out to different albums if you choose to do so.
The iOS 7 provides major overhauls, mainly focusing on its overall aesthetics and also adding some features like the camera and photo album organizing features and filters. The iOS 7 supports iPhone 4S phones and above.
Primaforce 10mg Syneburn Weight Loss Supplement November 20, 2015 Comments Off on Primaforce 10mg Syneburn Weight Loss Supplement
There are a lot of weight-loss agents out there that are clinically proven to help you lose weight. One weight-loss agent is the Syneprhine HCL, which pretty much acts like a stimulant that helps you burn fat.
Today, we’re going to take a look at the Primaforce 10mg Syneburn Weight Loss supplement. As the label indicates, the Syneburn contains 10mg of Synephrine HCL as its active ingredient.
Now, what separates the Syneprhine HCL among other weight-loss agents? Synephrine HCL has been known to increase both energy and metabolic levels. Some people report that they use Syneburn as their pre-workout supplement, because it provides them the much-needed energy to plow through their workout.
Here is the official Primaforce 10mg Syneburn Weight Loss Supplement product description:
PrimaForce Syneburn contains 100% Synephrine HCl and can help burn fat, suppress appetite and increase energy. Synephrine HCl is derived from the Citrus aurantium fruit, which is used for a variety of purposes in traditional Chinese medicine. Synephrine is a stimulant, similar to caffeine and ephedrine. It has similar effects in terms of providing an energy boost, suppressing appetite and increasing metabolic rate leading to the burning or more calories. It is used as a safer alternative to Ma Huang. It helps to stimulate fat metabolism without the negative cardiovascular side effects experienced by some people with Ma Huang.
Health Experts say that Synephrine HCL helps burn fat even if you’re resting. This is perfect for people who have 8-10 hour work shifts every day and they don’t have enough time, nor the energy to go to the gym and exercise.
Of course, you have to couple Syneburn with a proper diet if you want to have better and faster results. It is recommended that you eat a maximum 1800 calories per day for men, and 1,500 calories for women.
Furthermore, do not eat foods that are high in sugar and fat. Examples of such foods are Ice cream, Cookies, Cake, Pizza, just to name a few. These are filled with calories, and they are not very healthy at all. Just eat them from time to time, but not every day.
Is the Syneburn effective? Let’s find out what consumers have to say:
Lois: “I’m at 235 pounds, and have maintained muscle while dropping 15% body fat. Now I’m at about 8% body fat, this was with a month time .Pretty effective in terms of decreasing the appetite and losing the body fat.”
Carey: “I like the clean stimulant effect and appetite curb it has, since I cant buy real ephedrine anymore. I use Syneburn as my preworkout, as I am immune to a lot of products since been taking for so many years. I use it before morning cardio, and still have energy to go back to gym for weights, 6 hours later, and I come down very nicely, not agitated, like most stimulants.”
The Primaforce 10mg Syneburn weight loss supplements is priced at $15.60 for 180 capsules. If you want to have an effective Synephrine HCL supplement, this is a good choice.

Barefoot running is becoming increasingly popular. If you are a runner than you know that running shoes can sometimes be more of a hindrance than a help. Running shoes can force your foot to land in a manner that is unnatural.
The range of motion of your foot can also be limited when you wear running shoes. The proper running shoes can help you get you on your feet and moving better than ever. While there are some proponents that say that running barefoot should mean running without shoes, running completely without shoes is just not a great idea because you are opening yourself up to all sorts of injuries.

Stepping down gradually is far safer and makes the transition easier on your body. Nike Free Run Trainers offers a great system of shoes that will take you from old school to new school in a few easy steps.
Comfort is Key

What are R4i cards and why they are so popular April 12, 2012 Comments Off on What are R4i cards and why they are so popular
SD cards are small memory cards that can be used for things like phones, tablets, and cameras. However, these tiny memory cards are now able to be used in game systems. Though there are many memory cards available on the market, using an R4i card in a game console can give a game player a lot of advantages. Here is more information on the benefits of an R4i card.
Added benefits of an R4i card: The R4i card is for use with the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi. However, with this special card, the Nintendo unit can do more than just play games. The card will allow the game unit to be able to play music, read electronic books, send text messages, and send text messages to other Nintendo game players.
A better value than the specific game systems cards: The biggest advantage of an R4i card is that it is a lot less expensive than the cards that are actually made for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi. With the special Nintendo cards, there is a limit to the games that can be played with the card. If a person wants to play another game, they have to buy another Nintendo game card. The R4i card is the only card that is needed because it can hold many games on only the single card.
The card can be found anywhere: R4i cards are available from pretty much anywhere. There are many shops that carry R4i cards, and a person can order one and have it sent directly to their home. The cards for the Nintendo consoles themselves are not always easy to find, and sometimes the cards have to be special ordered. The memory cards that are made especially for the Nintendo consoles are also more expensive then the R4i cards, especially if a person has to buy more than one to play all of the games that they want.
Memory cards are used in things like tablets, phones, electronic book readers, and now game consoles. The R4i cards are very small, and they can fit inside the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi game units. By adding this special R4i card, the DS unit can do so much more than simply play games. With this little memory card, a game unit can be turned into a tablet with the ability to send text messages, watch movies, and listen to music. Nintendo game card are designed for only one game at a time, but a gamer that wants to do more than just play games should look into an R4i card.
What is the Nintendo DS console? July 12, 2011 No Comments
New game consoles are being released every year and there has been an increase in demand for portable game consoles. Nintendo heeded this call and the Nintendo DS was the result.Unlike the GameBoy Advance SP, this one is slightly larger so you might skip on the idea of keeping the DS in your pocket. Backpack yes, pocket no unless you have a cargo jeans with a large pocket space.
A feature that might be new to you is that it has a dual screen on which the bottom one is a touch screen. Behind the SP lays its stylus for you to navigate in addition to the navigation buttons you have accustomed with the previous GameBoy series. The new DS also sports 2 new buttons which is the X and Y button. Most DS games utilize the touch screen feature so there are more interactivity for users.
At the time of publishing, there are a lot of DS games available in the market for you to choose from. There are some famous titles such as The Sims and also Pokemon. However, those who would want a manlier game will have to bear with DS games catalog as there are not many games for that genre. A game that would be most familiar amongst gamers is the famous Call of Duty and we are happy to say that Activision has released the Call of Duty 5 on the DS.
Playing games is also a lot more fun in the DS with its microphone. When a game tells you to blow the candle, what do you do? You blow through the microphone. It might be rather embarrassing for some but to others, this might even be fun. All in all, there has been an increase in the user interactivity with the game from this feature and we can expect some very attractive games to be released.
Multiplayer gaming has never been as easy as it is on the DS. Before, you would have to use link cables to play amongst each other but now, you can do it wirelessly with the built in wireless feature. In addition to that, you may also use the wireless to chat amongst DS users within your proximity through the PictoChat program embedded with the DS.
Previous Advance SP users complained that they cannot see the game properly if it is front lit and Nintendo modified this and made both screen of the DS backlit. Users will have no problem in regard of playing game in a bright environment. In addition to that, recharging the battery gives you a game play of approximately 10 hours. How awesome is that? You can definitely satisfy your thirst for game in time before the battery dies off.
Nintendo DS is another superb invention by Nintendo Corporation and from its selling price of $149.99; you do not have to dig deep into your pocket. It is affordable to most families and can be played by people of all ages.
