The sad truth is that most people don't get enough fruit in their diet. Bananas are a great choice to help you increase your fruit intake. If we are honest with ourselves, eating more fruit and vegetables is probably one area that a lot of us could improve in. Plus, they're delicious! #bananas   #nutrition   #healthyeating

How to drink more water [Tips]
We often struggle to drink enough water. Although we know we should do it we often forget, or don’t feel like it or drink anything else but that. We get dehydrated which then leads to dizziness, headaches, sluggishness and confusion rendering us less than productive and unable to concentrate and get on with our day. All that could be avoided with something as trivial as a glass of H20 – if we don’t forget to drink it, that is. Here are few tips on how to make it easier to remember and make it less of a chore:

Make it accessible.

The first rule of turning something into a habit – make it easy to do. In order to drink more water have some – in a bottle or a glass on your desk always at hand and you’ll drink more naturally. 

Add flavour.

The easiest way to get yourself to drink more water is to make it taste good. It especially helps if you are trying to transition from sweet soft drinks into drinking something that has no taste whatsoever making it all that harder to get used to. You can use any flavour you like, make cucumber or lemon water – no sweet additives; just the natural juices are needed to make it taste good. Make it beforehand preferably the night before: slice up half a lemon or half a cucumber and add it to a glad jug, fill it up with 2lt of water and keep in the fridge overnight. You’ll have two liters of chilled flavoured water always at hand and you’ll be surprised what a difference the flavour will make to your water drinking habits – you’ll be reaching for a glass more often than you expect.

Get a straw.

We sip coffee and tea, wine and beer. We don’t sip water so much unless we are training or have to stay in the sun all day. Sipping water isn’t as enjoyable as sipping milkshakes so why would you reach out for it again and again? You will get distracted and you’ll forget and the lonely glass of water will just sit there on your desk and will be emptied into the sink once the meal is over. So what you want is to drink as much as possible the first time. Learn from the milkshakes – how fast can you drink one... if you drink it through a straw? Something as simple as a straw added to a glass of water will completely change how much water you drink in one go. Try it. 

Buy a pack of straws and you’ll have one on hand any time you need one. 

Log it.

Another way to keep your water intake high is to make yourself accountable and log it in. You don’t actually have to drink 2lt a day, you just need to drink every now and then but many of us fail to do even that. You will get water from food and other drinks like coffee and tea but the best source of water is still – water, so 2-3 large glasses extra will be more than enough. Set a time of the day when you have to drink a glass and keep the times the same every time, for example: 8am, 3pm and 9pm – these are your “water” hours. All you have to do is drink a glass when it’s time to drink. 

You can even get an app for that, you know. The water tracking apps can be a bit too tedious and add time, after all you want to make your life easier not harder by logging  every drop of liquid you drink during the day but it adds the gamification factor into the whole thing and it can work for some people, at least until the habit sticks.

Most of the time, it’s just getting used to drinking and drinking regularly until you no longer need to remind yourself to have a glass, you just have one.

#Dark chocolate Dark Chocolate good for the heart

Dark chocolate thought to promote relaxed arteries, also have biochemical effects that may discourage atherosclerosis suggests a report published in the March 2014 issue of the FASEB Journal.

In a randomized, double–blind study, eating dark chocolate—acutely and over weeks—not only improved objective measures of endovascular function, it also improved biochemical markers that reflect leukocyte activation, inflammation, and other signs of atherogenesis.

Changes in endothelial function were reflected in improved flow–mediated dilation (FMD), blood pressure, and augmentation index (AIX), while "changes in leukocyte–cell counts, plasma cytokines, and leukocyte adherence markers after chocolate consumption point toward a less–activated state of cellular adherence and, hence, a less atherogenic milieu, according to the authors, led by Dr Diederik Esser (Top Institute Food and Nutrition and Wageningen University, the Netherlands).

#Fever  Fever does not mean presence of infection. There are many situations where there may be fever without infection and hence needs no antibiotics.

Sepsis is a clinical syndrome, which results from the dysregulation of inflammatory response to an infection. The temperature is between 36°C to 38.30°C. Heart rate is often more than 90 per minute.
Symptomatic inflammatory response syndrome means a clinical syndrome, which results from dysregulated inflammatory response to any infections such as inflammation of the pancreas, inflammation of the vessels, clot formations in the veins.
Many antibiotics can cause fever; unless they are discontinued, fever will not subside.
Hyperthermia is a condition with elevated body temperature but it is not called fever. Examples are exposure to heat or heat stroke and in response to anesthetic drugs and anti-psychotic drugs.
Hyperthermia may not respond to anti–fever drugs.
When fever is more than 41.5°C, it is acute hyperpyrexia.
Hyperpyrexia is usually seen in patients with severe infections but it may also occur in brain hemorrhage. It responds to anti–fever drugs.
High temperature without infection is found in condition of hyperfunctioning of the thyroid gland.
Recreational drugs such as Ecstasy can also cause fever without any infection.
Mild fever can also occur after exertion
