Body Talk - 13th July 2010

Do you have trouble geting to sleep at night? Try these healthy tips to chill out before bedtime and release some of that tension. A good night's rest will make you feel better and look younger.

Try a bowl of porridge with sliced banana. Sleep is triggered by the release of melatonin, but stress or excitement can prohibit it's production. This tasty snack is rich in melatonin and should help to soothe your body. Or a handful of pretzels, they are a good source of carbohydrates which make you sleepy. Try a glass of cherry juice which is also high in carbs.

How do you keep cool in this hot summer sun? Make sure you ar wearing loose clothing, ideally cotton or linen. Run cold water over your wrists for an instant cooler. Have smaller meals and eat more often. Big meals foce your body into raising it's metabolic rate. Try putting some iced water into a hot water bottle, a cold water bottle instead!

Lastly a few tips for beating the bulge. Tomatoes in your sandwiches will keep you feeling fuller for longer. Vinegar based dressings contain acetic acid which will speed up the rate that your body burns fat. Avoid energy drinks, the energy is released too quickly and if it isn't used up your body will store it instead.
