It is possible to lose a large amount of weight in a short amount of time. The way to do it is a combination of many things - diet, exercise, calorie deficit, etc. There are many weight loss diets that show results fast. But the one diet synonymous with quick weight loss is the Military Diet. The military diet One of the most successful quick weight loss diets, the military diet promises fast results in the quickest possible time. We are speaking of ten pounds in seven days! That’s astounding indeed. The week is broken up into two phases. Both have calorie deprivation as their goal. The first three days is 1400 calories. The next four days, the calorie count stays at 1400-1500 and no higher. There’s also a lowest point the calories can go to and no lower; 1200 for women and 1250 for men. 2200 for women is the number of calories your body needs to stay energetic, emotionally stable and not suffer from hunger pangs.

Morning And Evening Meals In Ipoh Food Town

MORNING AND EVENING FOOD... I always look for the first meal of the day outside... no home food in the mornings.  I will feed myself up to the brim and that is it for the whole day till sun sets.  The moment I open my eyes in the morning, I will think of what to eat for breakfast.  LOL... But before going out, I will drink a water followed by a mug of fruit juice... *provided I am not lazy and fruits are available*.... then after doing the normal household chores and freshening up, the car will zoom to where I want to go.  If I do not have anyone to eat with me, my breakfast will be "tar-pau-ed" *takeaway*... I still cannot take a meal eating alone in a shop, all by myself.... If possible, I want COMPANY!  LOL.. Yes, this morning I have company...  We went for Hakka noodles near Ali Pitchay Road, just next to the Methodist Kindergarten...  With a couple of these fish balls to go with the noodles...  A big bowl of noodles and these can last me one whole day

Seafood Dishes At Soo Hak Yee, Bercham, Ipoh

AT HIS SERVICE.... They arrived early morning at 10am, driving all the way from Johor at 4am in the morning.  Though the traffic was not heavy, the long drive still takes six hours to reach Ipoh.  I have not seen them for nearly two months, time really flies.  And the first thing they did when they arrived at the doorstep was to go for a good breakfast!  LOL... After breakfast we went shopping for pomeloes and Ipoh famous biscuits... by then it was almost afternoon.  Told them to take a good rest before going for dinner.  There is one place I have planned to take them for dinner, it is called Soo Hak Yee in Bercham.  I have been there several times and the food was not bad though it was a bit pricey especially when it comes to Crabs!! Wanted them to try this Freshly made giant bread... 3 choices of fillings... curry chicken, crabs or prawns... We opted for crabs! And here it goes...  Inside the bread, there are two big crabs...  This alone cost around RM170!

Beauty In Hairstyles

There is a saying that the most important feature on a human is the hair when it comes to looking beautiful.  Needless to say most of us are born with beautiful and natural hair and we do want to look even better especially for ladies.  The best option to have a better look and beauty is to don some pretty full lace wigs and changing our current hairstyles to be more sophisticated.   When it comes to choosing wigs, you should take your complexion and the style of your clothes. For example, if your skin is white and your clothes are of classic style, you might as well take the black straight full lace wig as your best choices because it can perfectly let you look extremely elegant and will without doubt help you showcase your unique charm in an appealing manner. But if your skin is brown and your clothes are of sparkling style, you can have a try on the ombre weave wig to make you become much more shining and help you catch all the people’s eyes at the first time they see you.  

Glamorous Wigs For Ladies

In today’s modern fashion world, wigs are increasingly becoming an important part of a person’s fashion accessories. No longer are wigs look upon as something someone has to wear to hide or cover up his or her thinning hair or baldness due to natural shedding of hair or medical reasons. Gone were the days where wigs were awkward in appearance. With just one look, everyone knows that it was a wig on the wearer’s head. Not only were wigs very obvious, they were hot, causing much discomfort and itchiness to the wearer’s scalp and many have to endure the discomfort and suffering of wearing the old fashioned wigs.  Try frontal closure for more comfort and natural wave and the wide selection of designs. Wigs are here to stay because wigs are making a mark in today’s fashion world. More men and women are owning wigs like they own clothing, shoes and accessories. In today’s modern trend, men and women are willing to spend their money on wigs just like they are willing to spend on
