So my bad.
Out of curiousity.

admin answers:

United, BMI, BA, Virgin Atlantic, TAP, Easyjet, FlyBE, Spanair, KLM, Swiss, Lufthansa, SAS, Austrian, Air NZ, Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Malaysian and that doesn’t include those that no longer exist.

Richard asks…

cancelling a bmi flight?

I have a flight booked and if I was to press the cancel button would i my money back?

admin answers:

You would only get a refund on a ticket issued by bmi (or any airline, for that matter) if you specifically purchased a refundable ticket. Note that these tickets are usually considerably more expensive than non-refundable tickets, so if you bought the cheapest available ticket at the time of purchase, the chances are good that you bought a non-refundable ticket (as most airline tickets sold today are not refundable).

The only ones who can tell you whether your specific ticket can be refunded are bmi themselves, as the refund conditions are located within the fare rules unique to your ticket.

Donald asks…

baggage allowance for bmi?

admin answers:

BMI is an airport- however many bags you are allowed is determined by which airline you are flying with. Find out which airline you will be using, and then check their website for baggage information.

Your Questions About Physical Fitness Careers

Helen asks…

What does a physical therapist do exactly?

I’m looking into career paths and was interested in physical therapy. I like details. And also do they work in a specific hospital or move around to different ones?

admin answers:

The national jPT accociation: the APTA can say it better than I can.


Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility – in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.

PTs examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

Physical therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, and nursing homes. State licensure is required in each state in which a physical therapist practices.

All PTs must receive a graduate degree from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice. The majority of programs offer the doctor of physical therapy (DPT) degree.


More than 175,000 physical therapists are licensed in the U.S. Today. The median salary for a physical therapist is $80,000 depending on position, years of experience, degree of education, geographic location, and practice setting.


Although many physical therapists practice in hospitals, over 80 percent practice in:

Outpatient clinics or offices
Inpatient rehabilitation facilities
Skilled nursing, extended care, or subacute facilities
Education or research centers
Industrial, workplace, or other occupational environments
Fitness centers and sports training facilities

The minimum educational requirement is a post-baccalaureate degree from an accredited education program. While some programs offer a master’s degree, a growing majority of programs offer the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. Currently, 199 colleges and universities nationwide support 212 accredited professional physical therapist education programs; 96% now offer the DPT and the remaining programs are planning to convert.


After graduation, candidates must pass a state-administered national exam. Other requirements for physical therapy practice vary from state to state according to physical therapy practice acts or state regulations governing physical therapy.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of physical therapists is expected to grow by 30 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations. According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), with just a 0.2 percent unemployment rate, physical therapists are now experiencing the best employment conditions since enactment of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997.

For more information on a career in physical therapy, click here, or contact APTA Public Relations, 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314-1488, telephone: 703/706-3248, fax: 703/706-8578.

Sharon asks…

What type of tests do you have to pass to be a corrections officer?

can you give me some examples of the questions and what the physical agilities part consists of?

admin answers:

It actually depends on the state in which you are applying, but you can expect a psychological exam, polygraph, physical fitness, and perhaps a written exam to test your grammar and punctuation skills. This is becoming more important as correctional officers have to do LOTS of paperwork. Good luck, it’s a rewarding career that I wouldn’t trade for the world!

Thomas asks…

What are the procedures to becoming a firefighter?

I am currently completing my last year of high school, and I have decided that as soon as I graduate I will be enrolling in a community college that has a fire service career center, and a basic fire academy. but after I complete this what is the next step, is it looking for a fire dept? and applying there? and what happens if I get accepted? will I have to go through their fire academy? I just really dont know what happens after I complete the basic fire academy with my EMT certificate.

admin answers:

It helps if you have an AS degree in Fire Science along with paramedic training or experience. Find out the requirements in your local fire department so as to gain both insights and training. You can start off as a volunteer there before turning pro.

Since a lot of your career progression depends on physical fitness, agility and testing, complete your Firefighter 1 at your local community college soon after you graduate high school. You also need to pass the firefighter oral board interview.

Carol asks…

What careers are similar to Physical Therapy?

I thought about becoming a physical therapist, but I don’t want to be in school for 6 years. What other jobs in the health field would be similar or interesting?

admin answers:

Hi Madison! There are lots of great career options in the health care field! According to this site related careers to physical therapy are:

“Fitness trainers can often perform tasks similar to physical therapists, particularly because both are often asked to provide advice and counsel on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyles. Fitness trainers often work with those who are injured or recovering from injuries and surgeries, seeking to improve the function of their bodies. Unlike physical therapists, fitness and personal trainers do not have to complete extensive education, and can usually work with only certification.

A health educator is a person responsible for providing information and counsel on issues regarding nutrition, fitness, and disease control. Increasingly, public and private schools are hiring health educators who typically have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree to help keep students informed on healthy living choices. However, health educators usually work as consultants for hospitals, clinics, or private agencies.

Nutritionists are essentially a specific type of health educator. They are responsible for providing guidance for people in regards to their food choices, which is a service that those recovering from injuries and surgeries are often in need of. Nutritionists may have an associate degree, but a bachelor’s degree is typically preferred.”

You can find information about each of those careers and how to become each of those things on this page: Additional careers that are similar to physical therapy that you may enjoy are occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistant. Good luck with your choice! :)

Your Questions About Healthy Foods For Weight Loss

Laura asks…

How can I add calories but still eat healthy for weight loss?

My usual calorie intake while dieting is around 800, and YES, I know that’s too low. I really want to increase it to 1200 but I’m really struggling to get that high while eating only low-carb and healthy. Before when I was not dieting and ate freely, I easily ate 2200-2600 a day but that’s because I ate so much bread and peanut butter and desserts etc. Now that I’m strict with myself to only eat healthy/nutritious food that will aid my weight loss, I have to really work to get even 1100.

And I only eat 3 meals, no snacks (because I know from unfortunate experience that snacks become another meal for me and I end up grazing uncontrollably), so they have to fit in with 3 meals

admin answers:

Don’t know your low carb limit but what about tuna with tomato slices or with cucumber slices…chicken salad…turkey with brocolli / cauliflower / arugula….

Maria asks…

How did Ashton Kutcher lose weight by eating one meal a day?

He ate one meal a day and lost weight for the movie Spread. I eat one meal a day because I really don’t get hungry a lot but I’m still overweight! I do eat the healthy foods. I love fruits and vegetables. But no weight loss, why? How do you do it?

**Don’t tell me to cut out sweets because I already do that. I do drink a lot of water I almost never drink anything else! I used to eat a lot of sweets but I cut down a LOT!

admin answers:

He was already thin to begin with.

Nancy asks…

What is a fast effective way to lose weight?

Yes I know eat right and exercise.. but I want to know some tricks and certain foods and exercises to shred off the pounds without spending money on healthy foods and killing myself trying to work out everyday. Or even some weight loss pills?

admin answers:

It mostly depends on how much weight you need to lose, and your current level of fitness.

Definitely avoid pills, fad workouts, diets, and other ‘tricks’.

Do cardio – walk/jog/run or use an elliptical machine, treadmill, stair-stepper or exercise bike.

Do exercise (it doesn’t have to be every day – but it does have to be consistent). Use less weight and do more reps and/or do resistance exercises like pilates/yoga.

Steven asks…

I am on a diet,and am hungry a lot,What healthy foods can fulfill my appetite?

I have been on a diet for a few weeks now. I have lost weight. I eat lots of vegies/fruits grains and some chicken.However, I find myself hungry lately.I cannot work when hungry.I am getting bored of salads,etc. I feel hunger pangs a lot. Can anyone recommend a healthy way to satisfy my appetite? In the beginning of my diet I did not feel hungry,but after a few weeks and weight loss I now feel hungry a lot even with the healthy foods I am eating.

admin answers:

My sister has this thing that you put in a drink at lunch or anytime and it is supposed to make you not hungry until its actually time to eat again. It cuts down your snacking. You could look into that.

Michael asks…

Do I need to change my diet if start an intense workout routine?

I already eat a pretty healthy diet that I am slowly loosing weight from without exercise. Less than 1lb per week, but consistent weight loss none the less. I’m not on a crazy diet, just eating healthy foods and not eating junk and fast food. Can I just continue on with my diet or do I need to add more protein and calories. How would I calculate how much more to eat?

admin answers:

Make sure you eat at least 1200 calories per day. I work with a dietitian and she constantly says don’t eat less than 1200 calories per day because it is unsafe and very unhealthy.

If you start an intensive workout you do need more protein. There are ways to calculate how to lose weight. You need to understand your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and Basal Metabolic Rate BMR are. These will tell you how many calories you need just to live. Here is an article on RMR, BMR and BMI

There are places that can test you to determine these for you and tell you exactly how many calories you need to eat per day. A dietitian/nutritionist can tell you this and some gyms will tell you as well.

We have a dietitian that is also a personal trainer. She can help you figure out how many calories to eat and tell you based on how many calories you are burning in your intense workout exactly how many additional calories you need to build muscle, stay healthy and lose weight. Sometimes eating is the best approach but there’s no real way to know for sure until you get these factors evaluated.

You can post a question in our forum under weight loss and I can get her to answer a question for you or give you information on how to arrange for a counseling session with her.

Good Luck.

AAA.Good cholesterol, bad cholesterol: what’s the difference? Is there a “naughty and nice” list for cholesterol?

HDL cholesterol is the well-behaved “good cholesterol.” This friendly scavenger cruises the bloodstream. As it does, it removes harmful bad cholesterol from where it doesn’t belong. High HDL levels reduce the risk for heart disease — but low levels increase the risk.

Related MedicationsMore information on common Cholesterol drugs from RxList:


What Makes HDL Cholesterol so Good?
HDL is short for high-density lipoprotein. Each bit of HDL cholesterol is a microscopic blob that consists of a rim of lipoprotein surrounding a cholesterol center. The HDL cholesterol particle is dense compared to other types of cholesterol particles, so it’s called high-density.

Cholesterol isn’t all bad. In fact, cholesterol is an essential fat. It provides stability in every cell of your body.

To travel through the bloodstream, cholesterol has to be transported by helper molecules called lipoproteins. Each lipoprotein has its own preferences for cholesterol, and each acts differently with the cholesterol it carries.

Experts believe HDL cholesterol may act in a variety of helpful ways that tend to reduce the risk for heart disease:

HDL cholesterol scavenges and removes LDL — or “bad” — cholesterol.
HDL reduces, reuses, and recycles LDL cholesterol by transporting it to the liver where it can be reprocessed.
HDL cholesterol acts as a maintenance crew for the inner walls of blood vessels (endothelium). Damage to the endothelium is the first step in the process of atherosclerosis, which causes heart attacks and strokes. HDL chemically scrubs the endothelium clean and keeps it healthy.

What Are Good Levels for the HDL Cholesterol?
A cholesterol test or lipid panel tells the level of HDL cholesterol. What do the numbers mean?

HDL cholesterol levels greater than 60 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) are high. That’s good.
HDL cholesterol levels less than 40 mg/dL are low. That’s bad.
In general, people with high HDL are at lower risk for heart disease. People with low HDL are at higher risk.

What Can I Do if my HDL Cholesterol Level Is Low?
If your HDL is low, you can take several steps to boost your HDL level and reduce your heart disease risk:

Exercise. Aerobic exercise for 30 to 60 minutes on most days of the week can help pump up HDL.
Quit smoking . Tobacco smoke lowers HDL, and quitting can increase HDL levels.
Keep a healthy weight. Besides improving HDL levels, avoiding obesity reduces risk for heart disease and multiple other health conditions.
In certain cases, your doctor may recommend medication to improve your cholesterol level. Remember that multiple factors besides cholesterol contribute to heart disease. Diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, and genetics are all important as well.

Because so many factors contribute to heart disease, cholesterol isn’t destiny. People with normal HDL cholesterol can have heart disease. And people with low HDL levels can have healthy hearts. Overall, though, people who have low HDL cholesterol will have greater risk of developing heart disease than people with high HDL levels.

Experts recommend follow-up cholesterol testing every five years for most people. People with abnormal lipid panels, or who have other risk factors, may need more frequent cholesterol tests.

If you have high cholesterol or low HDL levels, take steps to increase HDL cholesterol such as eating right, exercising regularly, and not smoking. Lifestyle changes can make a big difference for most people and may prevent heart disease and stroke.

Thomas asks…

Is there bad cholesterol in fish fats?

admin answers:

Technically there is no such thing as good or bad cholesterol, it is the carrier of cholesterol that differs. The good carrier of cholesterol are high density lipoproteins (HDL) and the bad carrier are low density lipoproteins (LDL). LDL is found only in saturated fats which are not found in high amounts in fish. Generally white fish is low fat and the darker fish types like salmon, mackerel, etc. Are much higher in healthy fats with a small percentage of that being saturated.

Betty asks…

Which fish has the lowest bad cholesterol ?

admin answers:

Don’t be concerned about cholesterol from fish. All of the fat and cholesterol in fish will improve your good HDL cholesterol far more than it will adversely affect your bad LDL cholesterol. Fish is one of the healthiest things you can eat.

Besides, even foods like eggs, nuts, and red meat will improve your HDL more than harm your LDL.

Avoiding any of these foods is actually detrimental to your cholesterol.

Laura asks…

Do peanuts contain bad LDL Cholesterol ?

Do they contain the bad or LDL Cholesterol ?

Your Questions About Physical Fitness Careers

Linda asks…

Why is physical fitness important to the human body?How does physical exercise help or hurt the human body?

Please explain to me in full detail and please include all websites if you know of any. Thanks!!!

admin answers:

Moderate exercise (talking about all kind – aerobical, strength, flexibility) helps to keep healthy weight, enhances cardiovascular performance, increases bone density, helps not to lose muscle mass with age, helps with glucose regulation, lowers “bad” cholesterol, enhances brain function etc, enhances natural anti-free radical defense etc.
Very strenuous exercise (at the level of profesional athletes) is, however, harmful. It makes joints wear off too fast, makes arteries too pliable, so blood pressure is not sufficient to ensure normal circulation in the brain in the upright position. Most importantly, it keeps the body in the state of high aerobic metabolism, so a lot of free radicals are produced and more oxidative damage is done to cells. It translates into various health problems later in life.
Of course, if sports is not your career, you are far away from this level. Just don’t go into extremes – too sedentary or super active lifestyle are not beneficial.

Related Occupations
Police and detectives maintain law and order, collect evidence and information, and conduct investigations and surveillance. Workers in related occupations include correctional officers, private detectives and investigators, and security guards and gaming surveillance officers.

FBI Special Agent
Typical Day:There is no such thing as a typical day for an FBI Special Agent. Every day is different. One day you could be testifying in federal court, the next day you could be conducting a search warrant and gathering evidence, the next day you could be executing an arrest warrant, and the next day you could be back in the office catching up on all the paperwork. As crimes occur, FBI Special Agents respond. This is definitely not a 9-to-5 career. FBI Special Agents are required to work a minimum of 10 hours per day. Basically 50 hours per week. The usual hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 till 5 with two hours of overtime every day.

Average Salaries:
Starting salary for an FBI agent is approximately $48,000 per year. You receive yearly salary increases. A senior grade Special Agent with 12 years in the FBI makes approximately $87,000 per year. You could make more, depending where you live because of locality pay.

According to Wendy Osborne, “My advice to individuals interested in a career with the FBI is to make yourself diverse. Learn to speak a foreign language fluently. Take up a trade or develop a skill which would make you different from everyone else. Obtain an advanced college degree and gain some supervisory work experience.”

Donald asks…

What should I be doing to work a civil service career?

Don’t know what I should do to make some good money and have an enjoyable lifestyle. Police Work? ATF? FBI? If so what should I study in college and how should I get in peak physical condition?

admin answers:

If you want to do the job, take exams and apply. All of the agencies you have listed are law enforcement agencies and they are all fine. For federal positions, they may want a specific area of study and a degree. The requirements will vary by agency. Most local and state law enforcement do not require any specific area of study, just the minimum credits.

Run, do sit-ups and do push-ups. Google “cooper standards for physical fitness” to get an idea of the standards that law enforcement agencies look for.

Mary asks…

How fit was Rocky Marciano long after his retirement?

There are so many lists containing Rocky Marciano as among the top 5 “most disciplined” boxers of all time. Indeed even the Marciano haters respect this ATG for his grueling training regime, praising it as one of the sole reasons Marciano was able to make become the HW champ despite starting late in his boxing career.

I already read some of his training regime and indeed it is gruesome and I would daresay it is comparable to Army Infantry School at the very least (surpassing some aspects of AIS in difficulty).

So considering all his praise for his discipline and training regime, was Marciano a fit man even years after his retirement? Did he continue training physically to at least appear lean?

I am looking for an champ to model my own personal training after. With all the praise towards Marciano, he seems like the current choice to follow as far as my own training regime goes but I want to know if he was the kind of man who remained in shape even after retiring. Because a truly disciplined person would maintain his physical fitness as best as he could even long after he’s been in retirement (which sadly many champs don’t).

admin answers:

In short, not very fit after retirement. I’m not a Marciano hater, but I am a boxing historian…the truth is that Marciano let his health go due south after his retirement. He gained a considerable amount of weight, he was a drinker, and he also had a reputation as a “ladies’ man” and “womanizer” – this is ironic since he is often portrayed as being the “all-American” hero and family man of 1950s white Americana (the reality was quite different). Read the biography “The Rock of His times” by Kevin Sullivan for more information. Marciano was asked to fight an exhibition but against Ali in the mid-1960s after Ali beat Liston, and Marciano had to lose significant weight and wear a wig in order to appear “credible” for this match. He died in a plane crash in 1969.

Here’s a video of Marciano’s boxing training days:

There is a higher % of players that get delisted. than players who see out their playing career. which sees them in the motorcade,with all the other retired players. on grand final day.

What do you see as being a major cause to these types of players. whats the most common factor in bowing out of the game prematurely. other than injury.

Sorry Big Kev. but this is a spin off from one of your current questions. cheers mate.

admin answers:

An extremely complex Q and worthy of a book length answer, but instead I’ll tackle it this way.

At the elite AFL level the priority must be a 100% commitment of body, mind and soul to the game. Rookies are selected on their POTENTIAL to rise from the part-time footballer ranks to this level and players bought on the belief that the new club can better assimilate this commitment level ( often just plastering over the cracks ) to bring a player to the preset potential required.

1. Body – this is the physical fitness and skills dept. & includes daily gym work, diet , energy etc
2. Mind – is the second by second think set that constantly and consciously weighs and controls every split second decision both on & off field against the AFL career barometer.
3. Soul – Heart, personality and deep-rooted convictions which subconsciously direct the mind & body.

Now your Q is easy ! Any player who, at ANY TIME or for ANY REASON fails to attain or drops below a club’s preset “potential level” in any of these 3 areas risks de-listing. The interaction between these 3 areas plus team mates and employers become the plethora of reasons for de-listing, with as many combinations and permutations as players involved, so it is best to just stay with the above list.

Yes, we may be the most powerful country in the world, but individually we can be stupid. The cost of doing business has risen sharply, and a lot of that is frivolous lawsuits. The litigious nature of our society is so bad, some people have great ideas and technological advancements.

But they have been hampered by legal implications and insurance rates if someone does something stupid. So we don’t get the device or product. The person or company doesn’t think it’s worth the hassle and trouble. Insurance implications alone kill off innovative products.

Your Questions About Why Is A Healthy Lifestyle Important

Chris asks…

How does one go about picking a type of yoga and getting started?

With the growing interest in healthy lifestyles, more Americans are looking for ways to achieve balance—and stay fit. Practicing yoga is an excellent way to do both of those things, but with so many disciplines to choose from it’s important to pick the one that’s right for you. Tell us how you discovered your perfect yoga style, and why you chose it.

admin answers:

I started by researching yoga styles online and decided to start with absolute beginners DVDs that are designed to introduce people to the basics, such as yoga history, proper breathing, and basic techniques. I did this just as a sample to see what classes I might want to take, as actual instruction by a qualified teacher is really valuable, especially in making sure that you have proper form and guidance from someone that can observe you.

I really like Kundalini yoga because it strengthens my spine and really energizes me. The first time I tried spinal exercises in this style, I noticed a big difference. I didn’t even realize how much pressure and tension there was in my back until it was gone!

Internet research, DVDS and books can be a great supplement to yoga classes. Although one should use careful judgment with things found online, the internet is an excellent source for finding yoga texts and info.

Maria asks…

Really need help with a conclusion for a reasearch paper?

We can’t use the words I, me, or you. I wrote the most awful conclusion about health. My whole paper is strong apart from the conclusion. I really need tips on how to write a good conclusion. Here is my awful piece of garbage:

So, why is healthy diet and exercise so important in maintaining an all over healthy lifestyle? Those two things come with many benefits to good health, they prevent diseases and can improve diseases that already exist, they improve mental health, and they extend the years of people’s lives on Earth. If exercise and proper diet are avoided, the person avoiding them will be more likely to have diseases, and shorter life expectancy. In order to have optimal health, one must exercise and eat right.

admin answers:

Here is a conclusion. In conclusion people should maintain healthy diets and exercise because and then list your points. And then have a slogan or up beat statement like stay healthy to live longer!

William asks…

Why do some women (and men, lol) have all these different diets when they can just follow the “Sunnah Diet”?

Salamulaykoum, hope your all well Insha Allah.

I have noticed that some women (and some men) say they’re on diets and then when I ask them, “how’s your diet?”, they always end up saying:

a) “I’ve put on more weight!!”
b) “I’ve changed my diet…”
c) “I’ve come to a conclusion that diets just don’t work for me!”
or d) “What diet? I said I was a on diet? Girl, I must have been high!” lol. And then an hour later, they look in the mirror and remember their diet :P haha

I used to be one of those women but Insha Allah not anymore, lol. I’ve changed my diet to the ‘Sunnah diet’.

Allah ta’ala says in the Qur’an:

Aouthubiallah Minashaytanirajeem
Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

O children of Adam, take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess. [7:31]

[Saying], “Eat from the good things with which We have provided you and do not transgress [or oppress others] therein, lest My anger should descend upon you. And he upon whom My anger descends has certainly fallen.” [20:81]

Now some sayings of Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him):

On the authority of Al-Miqdaam ibn Maadiy-Karib who said: I heard the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) saying:
“No human ever filled a vessel worse than the stomach. Sufficient for any son of Adam are some morsels to keep his back straight. But if it must be, then one third for his food, one third for his drink and one third for his breath.”
[Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasaa'I, Ibn Majah – Hadith sahih]

On seeing a fat man, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him said:
“If you did not have a paunch (belly fat), it would be better for you. He also said: Overeating does not go with good health.”

The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“Food for one is enough for two and food for two is enough for three and food for three is enough for four.”
[Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasaa'I, Ibn Majah – Hadith sahih]
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -
At the end of the day, Allah ta’ala would not have willed for the Qur’an ayats to be revealed or the ahadith to be said if our diet was not important. Diet does not mean necessarily to lose weight but rather to maintain a healthy lifestyle and doing what’s best for your body. We are the caretakers of our bodies and we must keep them in good shape because Allah ta’ala owns our bodies. Think of it like this, if a friend lent you their favourite item and you gave it back to them in a horrid state, think about how your friend would feel…

So my sisters and brothers, let us not indulge in all these scam diets. They’re just wasting your time and efforts. I mean c’mon some “slimming programmes” don’t come cheap and they’re not that effective, are they? Why use a money making scam when you can follow a free, halal and part of your faith, diet? :) Alhamdulillahi Rabilalamin.

All the best everyone and Insha Allah I hope someone gets inspired to start eating according to the Sunnah.

Honestly, you don’t need to deprive yourself from food, just try to eat only when you need to. Don’t eat too much. This might start out hard (I’ll be honest, it’s quite hard for me since I’m a greedy so and so :P ) but subhnallah, in a week I already have felt like I’ve achieved something. I feel more active and I feel less heavy just by using the 1/3 rule. :)

I’ve also started to sit on the floor. When I sit on the floor I also press my stomach against my leg, (I can’t describe the position properly, if someone can find the hadith, I’d be grateful) just so that I feel fuller quicker :) So I eat less anyway. :P

Anyways, take care

Oh gosh, sorry that it’s a bit long. :P

Jenny asks…

Why spend your whole life preparing for your death?

Why do some people focus their whole lives on getting into those pearly gates, and put it before a fun and healthy lifestyle? I’m not talking about people who go to church on a Sunday, I’m talking about proper religious fanatics, the people who post indecipherable bull**** on forums, people who preach Armageddon in the street, people who focus every part of their life on their religion.

The fact is, God, Heaven, Jesus… probably don’t exist. There’s more than enough evidence to suggest these things are merely outdated manmade ideas. If you want to believe in it, then go ahead, but why spend every moment of your life with your face in a Bible, preparing to be disappointed when you die. Is it not more important to enjoy life? Cause you only get one I’m afraid.

If God does exist, and is truly all loving, and morally perfect, then why is it vital in some people’s minds to live their lives by a set of rules supposedly dictated by a delusional caveman millennia ago? Surely an omnibenevolent God wouldn’t care how you live your life.

What I’m saying is surely it’s better to enjoy the life you have than to constantly live in fear – lets be honest, whether or not there is a god, you must be pretty stupid to believe you’ll burn for eternity in hell because you smoked a joint, or had sex before marriage, or forgot to give money so the church could buy another statue of Jesus.

Discuss. And none of the crazy preachy crap, because I fell sorry for you guys.

admin answers:

I don’t think your question is stupid or crazy. I think you just haven’t taken into account the fact that life with Christ is better – here and now – than without. A lot of people think the New Testament is all about rules…no smoking pot, no sex, no drunkeness, etc. It isn’t. In fact, that is one of Jesus’ main points, i.e., the old Jewish laws which were so detailed and so extreme, are missing the point. The point is love your neighbor, do things that are good for you and the world, don’t worry, trust God. Those things make for a better life here and now. You don’t have to wait around for heaven.

Jesus said, “I gave to give you life more abundantly”. Jesus wants people’s lives to be full and rich. He isn’t as concerned about the rules you have listed, i.e., smoking joints, having sex before marriage, etc., as He is about telling you what will make your life better and more full. People who go day to day, sleeping with a new person each day, feeling like life is short and each day that you live is just a day lost…they don’t have the same experience as people who live with an eye toward love and spirituality.

My advice is for you not to take for granted what you believe Christianity is. Humans have skewed Christianity a lot. Just read the words of Jesus, maybe start with Luke. It may change your mind.

Helen asks…

Why is child abuse used as an excuse for homosexuality?

if one asks a homosexual why they are different,many would say they were born like this,others would say they were sexually abused.many people had a difficult childhood that made a deep impact on their mind psychologically.unstable home environment,divorce,child abuse,alcoholist parents,domestic violence,abusive parent, among others are the causes for which a person lead certain type of lifestyles.
it’s really important for a child to grow in a healthy,stable home environment so he or she may grow free of all of these problems mentioned above.usually,a person who was deprived of love and
affection as a child,is affected in both ways emotionally and mentally.people who did not have a happy childhood seek solace in harmful things like drug,alcohol and sex addictions that ruin a lifestyle
and a healthy state of body and mind.

Your Questions About Most Fattening Foods To Gain Weight

How to not feel guilty after eating fattening food?

Donna asks…

What food helps you gain weight fast?

I am really trying to gain weight on my legs and arms whats the best way to do this. I am aware that i should work out to build muscle but im not too keen on this is there anything else?

admin answers:

Lots of monounsaturated fats are good. Fattening, squishy, not unhealthy. Avocados, potatoes, sunflower seeds etc. Also, drink drinks with calories more often. Cola, fruit juice, milkshakes. Lots of cola might make you burp more, but girls who can proudly burp loud are pretty cool. Too much milkshake is bad… No more than one a day. Never brush teeth immediately after fruit juice, as it softens enamel and you’d brush it off. Give it at least fifteen minutes, a half hour, maybe.

Eat just about anything you like. Eat something (or many things) until you are in pain. Then eat a few more bites, so you feel pretty bloated and fat. Wait a few minutes. Go bathroom, pass wind, loosen clothes -all to make room. Then when you’re ready, eat just as much food again, so it really hurts again. You’ll be gassy. You’ll be bloated. You’ll have a massive food baby (pregnant looking tummy from food) and might have to waddle. But it improves you appetite, and doing this now and again will make you able to eat much more monounsaturated fats than you otherwise could. You’ll be able to have seconds on everything, not feel full. It’s great. Once your tummy is totally stuffed, and actually visibly bloated, go to bed, and sleep it off. In the night, you’ll digest it all, and the food baby will go away. You might be left with a teensy layer of fat, just enough to pinch out a bit, like I did. The time I did this, I ate a personal pizza, two bowls of salad, and one big bowl of ice cream for supper. Pretty good deal, at pizza hut happy hour. I also had to walk for several hours… But it was fun. Good luck getting thicker. A BMI of 25/26 lives longest, so if you’re unsure of how much to gain… That’d be a good place to stop by.

Ruth asks…

How can I gain weight in my thighs?

My legs and thighs are super skinny and don’t touch in the middle at all. I am pretty skinny overall, but if I try to eat to get fat, all of it will go to my stomach. Is there any way I can only gain weight in my thighs? Thanks!

admin answers:


Consume more calories than you burn. Consuming more calories than you burn is a good way to gain weight in general, though by doing so you won’t be gaining weight to your thighs alone.

Eat a diet rich in proteins and healthy fats. Some people think that to gain weight you should increase your intake of snacks and other fattening foods. Yes, doing so will make you gain weight, but the weight that you gain will not be healthy. Instead, increase your intake of proteins by eating lean meats, fish and poultry, or by drinking protein shakes. You should also increase your intake of omega-3 rich fats found in foods such as flax and walnuts.

Do sets of simple squats while holding weights. Holding dumbbells in each hand, stand with your feet hip distance apart and your knees and hips in a straight line. Contract your abdominal muscles and slowly lower your body like you are sitting down in a chair. Hold for three seconds and then slowly raise your body back up to the starting position. If you’re new to doing squats, start by doing three sets of 15 squats, giving yourself a minute to rest between each set.

Add lunges to your fitness routine to increase thigh mass. Stand up straight with one leg forward in front of you and the other leg back behind you. Bend your knees to lower your body into a lunge position, making sure to keep both your front and back knees at ninety degree angles. Hold for three seconds, and then slowly return to the starting position. Add three sets of 12 lunges to your routine three times a week to see results.

Go for a bike ride or hit the stationary bike at the gym. As far as exercises go, cycling is great because it is both fun and beneficial. Cycling for just a few minutes each day can help tone and add muscle mass to your thighs and butt.

Nancy asks…

What soft foods can I eat to gain weight?

I have a reallyyyyyyyyyyy fast matabolism. I weighed 108 pounds but I got jaw surgery so I’m on a liquid diet till Wednesday, but on Wednesday I can eat soft foods only. So not really aloud to chew. I’ve already gotten down to 100 pounds since last Monday and I really want to start gaining weight towards Wednesday. Do you have any soft food suggestions for me? :D

admin answers:

I had jaw surgery 10 years ago and had a similar problem. It’s really hard to keep weight on when you have to liquefy your food. I had to do it for almost 3 months. To this day, I’m still sick of applesauce, yogurt and cream of wheat.

I used to have to drink 2-3 cans of Ensure every day, plus eat all the creamed veggies I could stand. I even started blending steaks, (it looks like a chocolate shake, and is really weird the first time you drink one) because I was soooo hungry all the time. Chewing meat is just impossible after jaw surgery.

Drink lots of milk shakes, eat ice cream and cut up pasta really small with alfredo sauce, those are all pretty fattening! Make sure you eat enough fruits and veggies now too, just blend them and make it like applesauce.

Charles asks…

What are some healthy foods to eat daily to lose weight / diet?

I wanna know some healthy foods I can eat daily ; breakfast , lunch , and dinner.
For a diet and to lose weight?
Can you give me some ideas on a healthy food to eat and also foods that has less calories.
(besides vegetables >.<)

I'm 14. Female. 108 lbs.
And I wanna go on a diet
Oh I'm 5'2 tall btw

admin answers:

How tall are you?..because that’s important to your weight/height..if you’re 5’5 108 you sound like you’ll be a twig. Now if you’re like 5’2 108 that’s a little different, but regardless, 108 is not much..I could bench you :/. Focus on being healthy instead of just losing weight. Sometimes it’s not what you eat but how much of it you eat. For breakfast, granola, oatmeal, eggs, muesli cereal, 2% milk, glass of OJ. Lunch, rice, vegetables, fruit, meat (chicken seafood), tea, or just a protein shake. Dinner, rice, vegetables, meat (chicken seafood), pasta, protein shake, tea, 2% milk. For snacks, nuts, seeds, fruit/veggies, protein shakes, small things that are low-fat/low-cat, like a stringed cheese, a yogurt, handful or two of nuts. For most dairy things, milk, cream cheese, butter, etc, just look for low/reduced-fat, added olive oil/canola oil, low-calorie things.

Your Questions About Foods That Fatten You Up

Chris asks…

Is Indian food fattening/high in calories?

I’m in college and there’s always an Indian food station in the food place. I really like chicken samosas and like chicken masala w/ rice or whatever it’s called. They all taste really good and fill me up, but are they high in calories? The sauce always seems really creamy and fattening so I don’t know if I should get it all the time.

admin answers:

The answer is yes, the Indian food that you like is high in fat and calories.

Samosas are deep fried curry puffs, both the nature of the cooking process and the structure of the samosa will inevitably make it high in fat due to the retained oil.

Most curries served in restaurants are high in fat due to the ingredients used. In India, energy comes from staples such as rice and chapati (unlevened flatbread), lentils and beans…all of which are rich in carbohydrates and are cheap. Curries are not used to provide nutritional energy in the average Indian’s diet as some have suggested. They are traditionally more token foods consumed in small amounts (more like a condiment) with much larger quantities of bland filler such as rice.

Curries eaten in Western countries tend to be direct copies or adaptaions of traditional Indian dishes and these are often high in fat, especially the meat dishes. We also tend to eat them in far larger portions than what is traditional.

Traditionally in India, fat in a dish such as a curry is seen as a sign of affluence and wealth and a layer of fat or oil on top of a freshly presented dish was regarded as a good thing, especially when entertaining guests. This means that many Indian dishes are high in fat by nature. Ingredients used include:

1) Ghee (clarrified butter),
2) Thick rich yoghurt (similar to Greek yoghurt)
3) Mustard oil (which is simply fat like any other oil)
4) Cocoanut milk (high in fat by nature),
5) Cocoanut cream (extremely high in fat),
6) Cream (not common but occasionally)

As you can see, the above ingredients do not make low fat or low calorie eating but it gets worse. Western restaurants and take-aways tend to use the cheapest ingredients possible and these are often the least beneficial to the health. In India, lean meat is generally preferred for cooking, but a restuarant will substitute fattier cuts of meat to reduce costs. This means a Western curry tends to be even fattier than one from India.

Basically, regard the curry you see in the take-away or the restaurant as having evolved from a celebratory dish, something extravagant served at special occasions or maybe once or twice a week in the homes of wealthier families. Anything made as a special treat tends to be unhealthy because the richness and texture comes from the use of fat.

In your own home, should you wish to cook curries yourself, you can actually make Indian food one of the healthiest cuisines to prepare, but naturally this is only because you add all the ingredients yourself.

Steven asks…

Why did God make some food fattening?

And some ‘food’ like berries or fruits poisonous? (Of course, theyre not actually food if they are poisonous to humans, but why did God do that?)

Im trying to lose weight, and I think it’s pretty damn cruel of God to have made cabbage not taste like lemon cake *cries*.

Also: Merry what-ever-you-celebrate!

admin answers:

Try this. Try camping without purchasing your campfire wood, without being in warm weather, without chainsaws, and without instant meals. I did this recently and was stunned by how fast my body burned calories.
You need fatty foods to survive in the wilderness.
It takes a lot more calories to cut down a tree, cut it into burnable pieces, cut off the limbs, split the wood, and stack it. Then your body burns a lot of calories just trying to stay warm. No matter how much food I ate at night, I’d wake up starving.
As far as fruits being poisonous. Some are only poisonous to humans or to certain animals. Usually if you just eat one or two you just get a bad stomach ache. God had to have some food for other animals, so he made them poisonous to people but not to animals. Actually I don’t know why they’re poisonous, but it sounded good to me.

Note: At least God made chocolate super high in antioxidants. That’s pretty awesome.

Laura asks…

is chinese take out food fattening?

i absolutely LOVE Chinese Take-Out. I have it at least once a month. But lately ive been looking at a bunch of diet plans in order to lose some weight. My only problem now is to cut down on my favorite fattening foods. Does my delicious monthly Chinese Take-Out dish have to go bye-bye? D=

admin answers:

I wish I could eat Chinese food as often. I’ts not as fattening as say
McDonald’s, Domino’s Popeye’s or any other fast food place is. At least Chinese restaurants have a wide variety of vegetables. As long as you order your meal instead of fixing a go-plate off the bar it’s better that way. Freshly cooked much better than food that’ s been sitting in the same oil & what not for how ever long. If your worried, eat more of the vegetables & steamed or stir fried meat & less of the rice, noodles, & fried foods.

Carol asks…

most fattening food?

admin answers:

The most fattening foods are foods which are deep fried, like Frenchfries and such.
Basically all the fast food products are about as fattening as fattening gets.

Lisa asks…

Gluten free baby food? Fattening?

My youngest daughter is almost 8 months old, she’s been referred to a paediatrician for her slow weight gain/growth.
They have advised me to keep her on a gluten free diet as she is still very small and if she did have a gluten intolerance it could be very serious, It is hard to know what i can give her other than rice, she has gluten free bread etc but i was wondering if anyone could reccommend some high calorie foods/recipies that i could feed her. She is on textured food already and will finger feed herself,
Thanks xx

admin answers:

All fruit, all vegetable, all dairy products (except perhaps commercially prepared and sweetened yoghurts) and all meat is gluten free. You can buy gluten free noodles at almost any large grocery store and health food store.

At 8 months of age, the most calorie and nutrient dense food that you can give her is breastmilk or formula, and that should be the bulk of her diet. If you prepare your own food for her, you can add a bit of olive oil to it. You can give her many of the food that you prepare for the rest of the family as long as it is prepared without gluten.

There is a wealth of information about gluten free food and diets on the internet.
