...And an inspiring response from Rachel's friend:
I have discovered the wonderful world of burgers, which are neither fast-food junk or gourmet, but dripping of grease!
This low-fat turkey burger is a great weekend dinner: 498 kcal and 34.5g protein (but a lot depends on the ingredients you choose).
I like soups unless they are thick, heavy and creamy - in my opinion, those are sauces!
This quick and easy meatball soup recipe will blow your mind: it's simple, healthy and unbelievably filling.
Only 245 kcal per portion packed with 28g of protein.
Ingredients (serves 2):
Fit as Hel would like to raise awareness of the dangers of the very popular juicing diets. This post series will make you think twice before starting a juicing fast - and will also make you to avoid them for good!
Juicing diets claim to be healthy, because you include more fruit and veg in your diet and thus you increase your vitamin intake as well.
This is a big fat lie.
Consuming nothing else but fruit and veg juices will cause over-consumption of certain vitamins and completely missing out others, such vitamin D, which is important for healthy skin, nails and hair.
Faded and broken hair.
But this is not the end:
If you do not get the nutrition your body needs, it will stop processes which are not essential for life, like hair production!
Could this get any worse?
This will not happen straight away. It will take you weeks, maybe months to notice it.
You will not even think about blaming your juice diet, because you will have long forgotten about it.
Love your hair - give it the vitamins it needs from natural resources, such as: fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines), egg yolks, liver etc. and most importantly: sunshine!
