Eating tips for endomorph body type:
1. Eats lots of good protein: lean meats like chicken, fish and eggs, peanut butter and low fat cheese are good sources of protein. Also beans and legumes are excellent if you don’t have a problem with a little gas now and then.
2. Lower your carbohydrate intake. Do not cut carbs out entirely, just make better choices by eating slower converting carbs like brown rice (in small quantities, 1/2 cup),green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and varieties of lettuce, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli, limit corn, peas and carrots because they contain more sugar when broken down in the system. The low glycemic index of vegetables can help you make good choices… The Glcemic Index Database
3. Eat more whole grains and cereals like oatmeal and bran and limit refined sugars. No soda, not even diet soda. Switch to flavored waters or unsweetened tea.
4. Eat 6 small meals a day instead of 3. Eating more frequently will help boost your metabolism and help you burn fat. This can be done easily by making your meals a little smaller and including 3 snacks a day between scheduled meals. Your typical day would go like this: breakfast, mid day snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and evening snack. The snacks can be a cup of raw vegetables, a piece of low- sugar fruit like ½ an apple or pear, a handful of nuts, a cup of low fat yogurt or a protein shake. Make your last meal and snack before 8 pm and try not to eat after that. Avoid fruits like bananas, oranges, and papayas. Choose berries like raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
5. Include daily exercise like walking, aerobic exercise like boxing or tai bo, light weights or a spin class. Aerobic exercise is any form of exercise that raises your heart rate.
6. This way of eating is a lifestyle and not a diet as permanently changing your eating habits is what will help you to keep the weight from coming back. Take it slow and do not be discouraged if you only lose 2 pounds a week because that is healthy and will not cause you to have lose hanging skin once the weight is gone.

I don’t know why, but I find Anders to be so adorable. Especially after seeing him on The Mindy Project. And shirtless.
A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume. A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.
An easy guide to carbohydrates!
Carbs are an essential part both of your daily diet and of giving your body the energy it needs. I hope this post helps you understand a bit more about the difference between types of carbs so that you can put your food to work for you and give your body what it needs! Personally, I always try to have multiple macro’s (macronutrients: fat, carbs, protein) at each meal so that my body gets a little of everything. For simple carbs my favorite is greek yogurt & forzen fruit smoothies. For complex carbs I usually go with 12 grain or rye bread, quiona and a small mountain of veggies! :)
