Ever wondered what astronauts see when they return from the International Space Station at the end of their mission, tucked tightly into a Soyuz space capsule? Well, it's this.

EG returns FOR THE FINAL TIME to the Steinbeck Forum at the Monterey Conference Center. Very few passes and hotel rooms remain, but it may still be possible to register. Metaphors aren't adequate. It is a singular thrill to be immersed with the amazing and enthusiastic people at EG: a conference like no other.

السؤال: تخسيس منطقة البطن والارداف؟
عموماً يفضل ان يتم تنزيل الوزن بالتدريج حتى تستطيع ان تثبت الوزن بنجاح والا يحدث حالات ارتداد سلبية بعد فقدان الوزن الزائد..
المرحلة العمرية مهمة جداً لكي نعرف معدل الحرق؟
عموماً الرجيم الصحي هو الذي تستطيع تطبيقة عملياً وتستمر علية –أول خطوة بالنسبة لحضرتك :
 1- وضع خطة زمنية ( محتاجة تنزيل قد اية لتصلي للوزن المثالي) في مدة لا تقل عن ...... شهور.
2- ولازم تعرفي ما هي اسباب زيادة الوزن عندك؟ اكل كتير ولا مجهود قليل  ولا حالة مرضية، نفسية ، اجتماعية.......؟
3-عمل بعض التحليلات والكشف وذلك لمعرفة السببب الفعلي لزيادة الوزن ، وحتى لكي لا يحدث اي مضاعفات اثناء الرجيم (يوجد ضغط ، سكري ، هرمون الغدة! ، ........ )   
 4- لابد ان يتم الأكل 3 وجبات يومياً (إفطار وغذاء وعشاء) بإنتظام ، وافضل واامن رجيم هو اكل جميع ما يحتاجة الجسم (ألياف وبروتين وكربوهيدرات ودهون) ولكن بنسب وكميات معقولة 

بواسطة (رجيم سانكوم + المشي ) والمشي لابد بأن تبدائي الأسبوع الأول بساعة مشي متواصل ، ثم تزيد المدة ساعة وربع الأسبوع الثاني وهكذا حتى تثبت ساعة ونصف مشي متواصل يومياً، - (ونلاحظ لابد ان يكون المشي متواصل لان اول 40 دقيقة يتم حرق السكريات في الجسم والمدة المتبقية من المشي بعد ذلك يتم حرق الدهون فيها ).....يعتبر المشي اسهل وافضل رياضة لتخسيس منطقة الارداف وبالنسبة للبطن فيفضل عمل التمارين البسيطة لشد البطن بعد مدة من التخسيس (بعد الشهر الاول من الرجيم) واسهل وافضل التمارين هي الدوران لليمين واليسار اثناء المشي او يوجد جهاز رياضي بسيط (قرص الدوران) لذلك وسعرة رخيص حوالي 50 جنية وايضاً القفزفي المكان (خمسين قفزة خمس مرات في اليوم) اليدين في الوسط مع شفط البطن اثناء القفز.

(الرجيم مع سانكوم أسهل وصحي بحيث انها تعودك على تناول نصف كمية الغذاء ونصف كمية العشاء- سانكوم تعتمد على تناول الكمية المطلوبة والصحيحة فقط وتحفزك على الأستغناء عن الوجبات الخفيفة " السناكس" بين الوجبات)
ســانكوم .. متوفرة في الصيدليات الكبرى

Thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the #NepalEarthquake  
 
Violent thrusting of the plates that push the Himalayas ever upward produced a magnitude 7.8 #Earthquake   48 miles (77km) northwest of Kathmandu, Nepal today. This densely populated region of more than 2 million people last experienced this kind of destructive force in 1934, when the population was 200,000. Photo credit: NASA

Story
Tagline
I think we live on a pretty cool planet (and by "cool" - I mean awesome)
Introduction
Recently returned to Earth from 5 1/2 months onboard the International Space Station. I want to use Google+ to share the experience of living and working in space with as many people as possible. The "orbital perspective" has inspired me to help make the world a better place. I hope that by sharing this perspective of our Fragile Oasis, you will also be inspired.
