Diet is not prohibited but make sure that the body still gets the intake of vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients.

To lose or maintain weight, apart from exercise, what we eat or don’t have a very important role. Because, a good weight loss diet is a diet that is not only good for our belly or waist circumference, but also for other parts of our body.

Don’t Forget These 3 Nutrients When Dieting

In addition, a good diet should also offer many healthy options and not require an expensive and varied list of supplements or food additives. And even though we’re on a desperate diet, try to keep these various nutrients into our bodies.

1. Calcium

Everyone must consume calcium. This one mineral helps in building strong bones and teeth, ensures normal blood clotting, and regulates muscle contractions (including heart rate).

Unfortunately, when we are on a diet, the body is at risk of not getting enough calcium intake. In fact, one study showed products rich in calcium, but low in fat can help reduce body fat, although it is still not considered effective in reducing weight. There are also other studies showing that calcium can prevent overweight and obesity.

What foods contain calcium? In addition to milk and cheese, we can get calcium from yogurt, green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, tofu, soybeans, and sardines.

2. Fiber

Eating more fiber is claimed to be able to lose weight in a healthy way. Until now it was believed that those who consumed more fiber tended to have a healthy weight. It is even believed that eating more fiber (without changing the other components of the diet), can lose almost as much weight as a heart-friendly low-fat diet. This diet is recommended by the American Heart Association.

Did you know that high-fiber foods tend to be more filling than low-fiber foods? This way, you will feel full longer and tend to eat less. In addition, high-fiber foods tend to be low in calories. That means you don’t have to worry about getting fat.

Well, if you want to slim down by eating fiber, go close to corn, kidney beans, peanuts, avocado, edamame beans, brown rice, whole grains, pears, oatmeal, apples, and broccoli.

3. Protein

Foods high in protein can actually help control our weight. According to a Harvard study, eating a serving of protein-rich snacks such as peas, chickpeas, or lentils can fill you up. Weight can be more easily controlled.

But, carefully choose foods that contain protein. Do not eat too much or too often red meat or processed meat, because even though these foods also contain protein, we can actually gain weight. It is recommended that we consume protein from nuts, seeds, eggs, low-fat milk, soy, legumes, seafood, and lean meats.

Losing weight is fine, but never forget the body’s need for healthy and balanced nutrition. Moreover, some of the nutrients as above are believed to be able to help your diet.

Do you like to eat red meat, such as beef steak, mutton satay, or beef sausage? Be careful, too often eating this type of meat can increase the risk of various diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and colon cancer.

As the name implies, red meat is meat that is red when it is not cooked. This meat can be processed and preserved into smoked meat, sausage, rendang, ham, beef meatballs, or burger stuffed meat (patty).

Red meat is actually a good source of protein, iron, vitamins and minerals for the body. However, if consumed too often, red meat can actually pose a risk to health. Many diseases can arise due to frequent consumption of red meat, including appendicitis, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Selecting the Type and Changing the Processing Method

Eating too much red meat can indeed have a negative impact on health, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat red meat at all. Red meat can still be consumed, it’s just that you need to pay attention to the portion and how it is processed.

Please note that 100 grams of red meat is the maximum amount that can be consumed per day. As an estimate, 100 grams of red meat is about the size of half a slice of white bread. Meanwhile, for processed red meat, such as sausage and ham, the recommended consumption is not to exceed 70 grams per day. In addition, choose meat that contains less fat.

If you like to eat red meat, here are some ways to process red meat to keep it healthy for consumption:

  1. Eat lean red meat, especially meat that ends in ‘loin’, such as tenderloin or sirloin.
  2. Replace beef or mutton with chicken or seafood.
  3. When cooking a meal using beef sausage, multiply the vegetables and replace some of the sausage with chunks of chicken.
  4. Remove the fat from the meat before cooking.
  5. Processing red meat at high temperatures can cause the food to release substances that increase the risk of cancer. Therefore, avoid grilling and frying red meat with too high a heat. Use medium heat, but cook a little longer.
  6. Turn the meat frequently when grilling or frying.
  7. Make sure the meat is cooked long enough to kill the germs inside, but avoid overcooking it. Overcooked red meat actually contains more cancer-causing ingredients.
  8. Process red meat by roasting, sauteing, steaming, or making soup. Remove the fat once the meat is browned.
  9. Remove skin and fat under the skin before processing.

Eating red meat is fine, but you have to pay attention to the portion and how to cook it, especially if you do have a history of gout and cholesterol. In order to keep your body healthy, in addition to adopting a healthy diet, you are also encouraged to exercise regularly, get enough rest, and stop smoking.

The race between Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos for control of space through their companies, SpaceX and Blue Origin, is getting tighter. But according to physicist Michio Kaku, the clear winner of this race is SpaceX.

Kaku made this comment in an interview with Fox Business some time ago. Kaku said SpaceX was far superior to Blue Origin and brought Musk the winner of the rivalry between the two billionaires.

“They (SpaceX) have circled the Earth several times, they went to the space station. In fact, their last launch even surpassed the Hubble Space Telescope; that’s how far they went into space,” said Kaku, as quoted by Interesting Engineering, Monday. (18/10/2021).

“In addition, Elon Musk sold tickets to go to the Moon, and the Japanese billionaire actually bought all the tickets for the first flight to the Moon.”

Kaku’s statement is true. SpaceX has several times launched payloads and manned missions to the international space station (ISS) using Falcon 9 rockets and Dragon capsules.

They recently launched the Inspiration4 mission, which consisted of four amateur astronauts. The three-day mission reached an altitude of 589 km, much higher than the positions of the ISS and Hubble in orbit.

On the other hand, Blue Origin has just launched two manned flights to sub-orbital altitude. Unlike SpaceX, which has already reached outer space, Blue Origin’s flight only reaches an altitude of about 100 km, which is the outer limit of Earth’s atmosphere.

On its last manned flight on October 13, Blue Origin launched four civilians, one of whom was actor William Shatner. In this flight, Shatner and his friends only spent about 3 minutes and 30 seconds in zero gravity before returning to Earth.

When compared to the Inspiration4 mission which lasted three days in space, the Blue Origin mission certainly looks inferior to SpaceX.

“So it’s no longer about flying for three minutes and coming back down. No, we’re talking about the Moon now,” said Kaku.

The competition between Musk and Bezos doesn’t stop there. Both SpaceX and Blue Origin are currently vying for a NASA contract to build a lander that will take astronauts to the Moon by 2024.

In addition, the two richest people in the world also have a satellite internet business. Musk owns the satellite internet business Starlink, which is part of SpaceX, while Bezos owns Project Kuiper, developed by Amazon.

Jeddah – Saudi Arabia is increasingly relaxing the rules for its citizens. Now, local tourists are allowed to go to the beach with their girlfriends.

For Asma, a citizen of Saudi Arabia, spending the day with her lover on the beaches in Saudi Arabia is unthinkable. But now, the 32-year-old woman can dance with her partner on the white sand by the Red Sea to the accompaniment of music from loudspeakers.

Asma and her boyfriend only need to pay the entrance ticket to Pure Beach near Jeddah of 300 Saudi riyals per person. They are not the only couple. A man and a woman holding hands on a beach that has the words “Saudi Arabia” in English when viewed from above.

“I’m glad I can now go to the nearest beach to enjoy my time,” said Asma.

In addition to being able to come with a lover and put on music with loudspeakers, now female tourists are also allowed to wear bikinis in the beach area. Some of them relax while smoking Shisha.

The music that is played is not only local music, but western songs. They talk, cuddle, hug, make out.

In many countries, this practice is not a strange sight, but it is different for Saudi Arabia.

Music was banned in public places until 2017. Women can go to the beach, but the area is separated from men. In fact, women are prohibited from driving until 2018.

The pair of tourists were also spotted outside the Jeddah area, which is known as the country’s most laid-back area. Pure Beach is in King Abdullah Economic City, about 125 kilometers north of downtown Jeddah.

“I grew up here, and a few years ago we weren’t even allowed to listen to music, so it’s like heaven,” said Hadeel Omar from Egypt.

Bilal Saudi, head of events at King Abdullah Economic City, said the beach targeted local visitors and foreign tourists alike.

“I feel that I no longer have to travel (abroad) to have fun, because everything is here,” said Dima, a young Saudi businessman, swaying to the music.

Officials at the beach said they did not know whether the couple was married or not. It was only two years ago that unmarried foreign couples were allowed to share hotel rooms.

For the sake of ‘privacy’, as the staff put it, the phones were confiscated and kept in plastic bags.

“I was surprised by the freedom and openness on the beach, something only experienced in the United States,” said the beachgoer.

Furthermore, Saleh said that what was still lacking was the ban on cocktails. Yes, the ban on alcoholic beverages still applies nationally.

“Life like this is normal in Saudi Arabia. Before, it was not normal,” said Asma.

Riyadh – Saudi Arabia is increasingly attracting tourists. Most recently, the world’s largest offshore tourist attraction will be built.

As of last Saturday (16/10/2021), the Arab Public Investment Fund announced the launch of The Rig or the offshore area to be the largest tourist spot in the world.

The construction of The Rig cannot be separated from the ambition of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) who is trying to realize the dream of Saudi Arabia’s economic transformation. To realize that dream, the Arab Public Investment Fund is said to be managing funds amounting to USD 400 billion or equivalent to Rp 5,625 trillion.

Saudi Arabia hopes this project can boost investment and the country’s economy.

Beautiful and healthy skin is everyone’s dream. But the desire to have beautiful skin has obstacles too. Poor environmental factors can damage skin health, of course, in addition to natural factors, namely aging. A healthy skin expert states that beautiful and healthy skin is in line with proper and natural skin care habits every day.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body with an outer layer called the epidermis. The epidermis is an important part in protecting the skin from damaging factors outside the body. Behind the epidermis is a dermis layer which is also called the middle layer of the skin.

In the epidermis tissue itself there are three supporting cells, including:

  • Keratinocyte cells, producing keratin proteins become a major part of the epidermis.
  • Melanocyte cells, produce skin pigment or called melanin.
  • Langerhans cells prevent foreign matter from entering the skin.

While in the dermis layer, there are collagen and elastin proteins that provide structure and help the skin’s elasticity so it looks healthy.

The skin regenerates every 27 days. Even so, throughout human life, the condition of the skin will change constantly for the better or worse depending on various factors. Therefore, it is very important to maintain the health and vitality of this protective organ by carrying out routine skin care.

Factors That Cause Skin Damage

In addition to age, environmental factors influence skin changes, especially its impact on the natural process of skin aging. The healthy dermatologist also said that sunlight is the main cause of skin damage due to the presence of ultraviolet rays and free radicals. Excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun is basically destructive as the effect can damage collagen and elastin. Elastin is a protein in skin tissue that makes it feel soft and supple.

UV light also impacts the skin pigmentation process. In this case, the negative effects of UV rays can trigger the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, even the risk of skin cancer. Not to mention, the high free radicals contribute to the growth of skin cancer. On the other hand, smoking and air pollution can reduce collagen and result in premature skin aging processes, as well as the effects of sun’s UV rays.

Healthy dermatologists also state that there are still other environmental factors that can cause skin damage, such as exposure to chemicals that cause irritation and allergies to the skin. There are more than 3,000 allergens and irritative substances scattered around us. This is especially so for people with sensitive skin. As a result, the skin turns red. The easiest way to protect the skin is to avoid contact with these allergen ingredients, for example by wearing body armor and replacing care products that do not cause irritation to the skin.

Naturally Healthy Skin Care

Natural healthy skin care can be done by eating fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants, such as berries, broccoli, carrots, and spinach. In addition, products with antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E are also good for maintaining healthy skin.

Furthermore, in order to avoid skin damage due to bad environmental factors, it is necessary to do skin care efforts with skin care products that also support to stay healthy and shine. Some things to consider in carrying out routine skin care are:

Routinely clean your face, at least twice a day. Make sure to remove makeup at night before going to bed. Use a gentle cleanser that does not contain detergent and fragrance. Also prioritize facial cleansers made from natural.
Use moisturizing products. Not only for owners of dry skin, but use this product also for those of you with oily skin.
Always use sunscreen every day even if you don’t often do outdoor activities. In fact, this treatment step is the most important for protecting the skin. Choose sunscreen with natural ingredients and contains a minimum SPF of 15 or 30 to protect the skin from UV A and UV B.

Eat healthy foods and avoid prolonged stress.

To get more effective protection, choose a lotion product that is suitable for your skin type. For example to deal with oily skin, use skin care products specifically aimed at reducing oil levels in the skin to avoid acne problems. But whatever our skin type, healthy skin experts claim beautiful and glowing skin is the result of healthy habits and natural and simple skin care.
