8 Solutions If Your Child Refuses To Eat

Every mother knows that for proper growth and development of her child needs healthy and versatile food. But after some unwritten rule that what is healthy and beneficial for a young child knows to be repulsive and distasteful…. Usually when your kid(s) refuses to eat and some parents may even blackmail their children: “if you do not eat Swiss chard you will not get chocolate!” 1. Let your child help you in the preparation of the meal. Two years old children enjoy making a mess in the kitchen, and if so let them do it during preparation and not during the meal. 2. If your kids make “Circus” on the table is credence to any great importance. Besides it does not look right in the eyes, but the point of view something else. You see, since a narrow focus on something else interesting to relax and have a real chance to eat some bites. 3. Do not insist the child to eat if he/she is too tired. First let’s take a break and then offer him/her a meal. 4. If he/she stubbornly refuses food, remove the bowl forcing him to sit for hours at the table. It has a counter-effect that makes your child irritable, and you mommy. 5. Try your culinary skills to show before the taster. Arrange the vegetables of different colors and different shapes because kids love out of the ordinary. 6. If the child does not want to eat mashed broccoli, do not immediately offer him the most beloved dish, because he/she will learn to manipulate you. 7. Mothers always be persistent and consistent. Only in this way you will achieve the desired goal. For that you do need great patience, but it pays. 8. Finally, try to turn the meal time into sweet fun. That doesn’t mean to bring a lot of toys on the table, instead fill the period with stories, songs and good fellowship with your little one and as reward you’ll get many kisses and sweet smiles that will make your day unique and irreplaceable. Enjoy !

What is amazing about it is that during this period, you are allowed to eat as much of the soup as you want, whenever you feel hungry. The more you eat of this soup, the more calories you will lose since this soup won’t add any calories. Actually, it works as a meal with “negative calories”, so it will speed up your metabolism and as a result you will burn more calories than the ones you take in. In addition, you will also succeed to detoxify and slim down your body. Take care not to skip a day, if you plan to travel or be somewhere else during the day, fill a thermos with your fat-burning soup and consume it as required in the diet plan explained below. “This diet is derived from one given at the Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital for overweight heart patients to lose weight rapidly, usually before surgery, and by Ed Kasper L.Ac, Acupuncturist and Herbalist.” (Food, by Rita, 7 Day Diet Fat Burning Cabbage Soup) However, if eaten alone for indefinite periods, it may lead to malnutrition. During the course of this diet, you should drink plenty of fresh water, that is, ½ of your body weight in ounces of water. Optionally, you can also add kombucha to your diet for beneficial yeasts and bacteria for your digestive system. The Recipe: This soup can be prepared in several ways, but this article offers you two, the original diet cabbage soup and one other, which is a modified version, but amazing one, for it is all organic, and does not include soup mixes or canned vegetables. Original Diet Cabbage Soup Ingredients: 1 large head of cabbage, small chunks 2 (8 ounces) cans green beans 2 green peppers, sliced bite size 6 large green onions, chopped bite size 1 (1 ounce) envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix 1 bunch celery, sliced bite size 3 lbs carrots, sliced bite size 1 (16 ounces) can of diced tomatoes salt and pepper Optional: beef bouillon, tabasco sauce, curry powder, chopped parsley, cayenne pepper, Preparation: The preparation of this remarkable soup is simple, just put all the vegetables in a pot, add the spices, cover with water and bring to a fast boil for ten minutes and then reduce to a simmer. The vegetables should be cooked until they become tender. Organic Diet Cabbage Soup Ingredients: 1 large head cabbage, shredded 1 large onion, diced 1 poblano chile, diced 1 bell pepper, diced 1 garlic bulb, sliced 1 lb shiitake mushroom, sliced fresh and pure water, no chlorine, or mineral-rich bone 1 kombu seaweed, rinsed and sliced 1 leek, rinsed and sliced 2 lbs tomatoes, crushed broth pepper lots of herbs salt (optional) In a small amount of vegetable or coconut oil saute all vegetables, except for tomatoes and cabbage. Next, put them in a pot, add the tomatoes and the cabbage. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables become tender and then add some fresh or dried herbs and simmer for 5 minutes. Season to taste. Also, you can prepare this soup in a crock pot for 6-8 hours. 7 Day Diet Plan: Day 1: Eat soup and fruits only. You can also consume pure water, unsweetened tea, kombucha, or cranberry juice. All fruits can be consumed, but avoid bananas. You can eat more watermelon and cantaloupe a lot, since they are low in calories. Day 2: Eat soup and vegetables only, and eat the vegetables along with the soup. Avoid dry beans, peas and corn and eat green, leafy vegetables. For dinner, you can reward yourself with a big buttered potato. No fruits are allowed. Day 3: Eat all the soup, vegetables, and fruits you want, but you can have no baked potato for dinner. If you’ve followed the diet for three days, you can expect to have lost 5-7 lbs. Day 4: The fourth day is banana and skim milk day! Both bananas and milk are high in calories and carbohydrates, but on this particular day your body will be in need of potassium, carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen cravings for sweets. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can along with the soup. Day 5: up to 6 organic tomatoes, 10-20 ounces of beef, lamb, wheat gluten (seitan), aduki beans, chicken (no skin), or fish. Take note to consume a high-quality range fed animal protein free of antibiotics or hormones. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water in order to flush the uric acid out of your body. Eat the soup at least once during this day. Day 6: You can eat as much as you want of beef, lamb, wheat gluten (seitan), aduki beans, chicken (no skin), or fish in combination with vegetables on day six. In addition, you can also have 2 or 3 steaks with green leafy vegetables. No baked potatoes today. Once again, be sure to eat the soup at least once during this day. Day 7: Unsweetened fruit, vegetables and brown rice. There is no limit of the consumption of fruits and vegetables, but eat the soup at least once today. Provided that you have followed all rules of the diet program, by the end of the 7th day you will have lost 10-17 pounds. In case you have lost more than 15 pounds, make a 2- day pause and then resume the diet again from day 1. Always consider the fact that everyone’s digestive system is different and, therefore, this diet will affect everyone differently and can give different results. If you follow it correctly, the Cabbage Soup diet will perfectly cleanse your organism of impurities. Furthermore, it will make you will feel lighter, more energetic, and healthier than ever before. What is great about it is that it can be used as often as you like. Continue this diet plan as long as you feel the difference both mentally and physically.

7 Habits That Build Resilience

Challenging situations are opportunities for growth and improvement. You learn a lot about yourself when the going gets tough and these situations are lessons that help you succeed in business and life. What you build along the way is resiliency, an important character trait for your success. Resilience is defined as the ability to adapt to and overcome stressful situations. By that definition, an entrepreneur's life is an exercise in resiliency. Every day there are challenges that must be faced and overcome. But how you approach your life and build resiliency can make the difference between it feeling manageable or chaotic. The tips below will help you conduct your day with greater equanimity while helping you build your perseverance.
  1. Eat a sound diet: 
Studies repeatedly show that highly nutritious diets maximize energy, stamina, improve brain cognition, help mitigate the effects of stress and prevent disease. Evaluate your diet, making sure you're leaning heavily on plant-based foods such as vegetables, beans, fruit and nuts for their optimal nutrition and antioxidant benefits. Include lean protein for enhanced muscle tone and healthy brain function, particularly wild Alaskan salmon and eggs. The Omega-3 essential fats in salmon have been shown to be particularly good for brain health and egg yolks contain lecithin, which has been shown to enhance acetylcholine production, a neurotransmitter that allows for greater focus and concentration. 
2. Eliminate junk food: 
 If your go-to snacks are cookies, candy, chips or soda it may signal out of control stress levels. It is well documented that a diet high in processed, refined and sugary foods makes you prone to depression and anxiety, neither of which will help you rebound in tough situations. Once you start down the path of junk food for a fleeting boost in energy levels, you are eroding your resiliency, setting yourself up to be chronically overwhelmed. Make your office a junk-food-free zone and keep fruit, nuts, nut butters, sparkling water and green juice on hand instead. 
3. Exercise: 
 It's clearly established that exercise is better for managing mood disorders than anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medications. There is no greater neutralizer than a good sweat at the gym. Make exercise a non-negotiable part of your life and schedule it at least three times a week. For a greater bump in resiliency, make time for the gym on particularly busy days. This builds enormous mental strength and tenacity because you are essentially pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, letting yourself know that even with a demanding day, you are committed to your well-being. 
4. Plan ahead: 
 In addition to meetings and work load, plan your workouts and what you will eat every day. Taking a few minutes to plan your flow, will go a long way towards helping you stay on track, both in the office and at home. This small habit can make you as much as 90% more successful at hitting your mark. Think about it, if you've had a bad day and only quasi-committed to going to the gym, do you think you'll make it there? Writing it down will help you follow through, building resiliency. 
5. Manage stress: 
Stress is unavoidable, part and parcel of being human. But for an entrepreneur who is trying to build a business while managing a personal life, stress can feel out of control. This can lead to anxiety which in turn can lead to depression or other mood disorders, none of which are helpful. Eating well and regular exercise are enormously beneficial for stress management, so putting those two practices in place are priority number one. But if your stress level is out of control and the gym is just not cutting it, consider options like Yoga, Tai Chi, meditation or even just a 20 minute walk in nature if it's available to you. While you may think that stress is a fuel that drives you, it is actually fanning the flames of burnout. 
 6. Cultivate gratitude: 
When success is at hand, it is tempting to keep shooting higher, setting your sites on ever greater goals. While I completely encourage you to keep setting the bar higher, it is also important to stop and smell the roses sometimes and be grateful for all that you have achieved thus far. Gratitude can fuel even greater success. When you are thankful for your life as it is, everything beyond that is gravy, helping to cultivate a sense of contentment. This, in turn can help alleviate stress. Not only that, studies show that those who spend a little time in gratitude every day tend to be happier, sleep better and manage challenging times better. So give thanks for all you have and are right now... It might just lead to even greater success! 
7. See challenges as opportunities: 
 In his book, Business Brilliance by Lewis Schiff, (a must-read for entrepreneurs), he writes how extremely successful entrepreneurs possess a strong conviction that allows them to see every set back as an opportunity to learn something that they simply would not have learned any other way. Most super successful people have suffered some sort of major setback in their career. Rather than give up, they learned from it, went back to the drawing board and tried again, using their newfound understanding to make them even more successful. When you come up against adversity, take a minute to evaluate the situation, learn what you did wrong so you can make better decisions next time, and create a new plan to help you achieve your intended goal. There is no better way to build resiliency.

Do You Want Change Your Life?

Are you aging faster than your years? If you don't like what you see in the mirror. Why do most people fail to stick to something challenging, like losing weight or getting in better shape? They don't start small. They immediately go all in. it may be time to evaluate some of your daily routines and change everything, which pretty soon results in not changing anything. So for now just make these five changes: 1. Drink a glass of water before every meal.
Everyone needs to drink more water. That's a given. Plus when you drink a glass of water before you eat you'll already feel a little more full and won't be as tempted to eat past the point of hunger. 2. Eat one really healthy meal.
Pick one meal. Just one. Then change what you eat. If it's lunch, eat one portion of protein that fits in the palm of your hand, a vegetable or fruit, and four or five almonds. I know that's not a lot of food, but it's healthier than what you're eating now and, just as important, it lets you take small steps toward better controlling your portions at every meal. Other examples: Pack a can of tuna and two apples. Or bring a skinless chicken breast and some cucumbers. Just make sure you prepare it ahead of time--that way you won't have to decide to eat healthy. You just will. 3. Use your lunch to be active. It doesn't take 30 minutes or an hour to eat. So make your lunch break productive. Go for a walk. (Better yet, find a walking buddy or do like LinkedIn's Jeff Weiner and have walking meetings.) Or stretch. Or do some push-ups or sit-ups. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you do something. You'll burn a few calories, burn off some stress, and feel better when you climb back into the work saddle. And you'll start to make fitness a part of your daily lifestyle without having to add to your already busy schedule. 4. Eat one meal-replacement bar. OK, so most protein bars taste like flavored sawdust. But most are also nutritious and low in calories, and they make it easy to stave off the midafternoon hunger pangs you'll inevitably feel after having eaten, say, a light lunch. Don't get too hung up on nutritional values; just pick a bar that includes 10 or 15 grams of protein (think protein bar, not energy bar) and you'll be fine. Eating a midmorning or midafternoon meal replacement bar doesn't just bridge the gap between meals; it's an easy way to get in the habit of eating smaller meals more frequently, another habit you'll eventually want to adopt. And, finally, a bonus habit to toss in once a week: 5. Have fun completing a physical challenge. It would be great if you could consistently hit the gym four to five days a week, but if you're starting from zero instantly transforming yourself into a gym rat isn't realistic. Instead, once a week pick something challenging to do. Take a really long walk. Take a long bike ride. Take a testing hike. Good Luck
