The Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is considered one of the most balanced and healhty diets out there. Find out the basics of the Mediterranean diet and how to introduce their components into your daily diet for a healthier lifestyle.

The Mediterranean diet is originally from Italy and Greece. This diet is based on using olive oil for cooking, eating lots of fish, fruits, vegetables and consuming one glass of red wine a day with your meals and 6 glasses of water.

Wine is consumed in small amounts and because red wine is rich in antioxidants, protects against heart disease and blood clotting it is extremely healhty. Drinking large amounts of red wine can cause certain health problems so the recommended amount must be respected.

Olive oil contains vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D, E, K, iron, 85 % unsaturated fatty acids and 15 % saturated fatty acids. Because of it’s high content of unsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants it is very beneficial for numerous health problems like: heart disease, colon cancer, ulcer, gallstones, it softens skin, delays the aging process and helps regain skins elasticity.

Fish also plays an important role in the Mediterranean diet.

Oily fish (salmon, trout, sardines, tuna) is very high in Omega 3 fatty acids which lower the bad cholesterol. It is highly recommended that we consume at least two servings of fish weekly.How to be Healthy and to look Beautiful:The Mediterranean Diet

Fruits and vegetables are high in fiber and antioxidants. We all know that antioxidants are beneficial for the heart and protects us from heart disease, cancer and acts as an anti-aging.

Daily physical activities are highly recommended in order to burn calories and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Regular exercises will also prevent heat disease, stimulate blood circulation and harden certain muscle groups.

People who are living their lives following the Mediterranean diet are less likely to

Get Smooth and Healthy Skin With Loofah

I am sure that every woman wants smooth and perfect skin. And no cellulite of course.

For that one should eat healthy food, drink a lot. Exercise and go for a walks when it’s possible. One can also use different creams and serums etc.  But  probably you won’t get any good results without massage.  You can go to a massage centre or spa and pay a  lot of money for the course of massage.  I tried one programm and it was really great but it was also expensive. Plus the result will not last the whole life!

You should also make massage yourself.  I know that a lot of ladies use honey to massage their hips and butt. But here is what I do. I buy products

Jennifer Aniston’s Hair Secrets

Chris McMillan, the star’s longtime friend and stylist, spills

What was Jennifer’s hair like when she first came to your salon?

I’ve been doing Jennifer’s hair forever. When I first met her, she had long, one-length hair with bangs, and she was like, “Don’t cut my hair—I want my hair long.” But I’m a hairdresser, so I obviously cut her hair and told her she needed to grow her bangs out. I cut a couple inches off and layered it from her bangs down to the ends. Then I taught her how to pin the bangs over with a bobby pin and make them flat—remember how everyone was doing that on the first year of Friends? Six weeks later, she came back to the salon for another haircut—her bangs were longer, and we just cut a little bit more off her length. The next thing you know, her bangs were down to her chin, and the rest of her hair was at her shoulders in these long, loose layers that sort of flipped out—and that’s what we called the Rachel.

What was the Friends hairstyle inspired by?

I’m always inspired by other hairdressers, models, fashion, and magazines like ELLE. For the Rachel, I was inspired by a model named Beri Smither—Ward Stegerhoek did her hair at the time. She was wearing this really great shag haircut—it wasn’t the Rachel, but it inspired me. These days, though, Jen likes her hair on the longer side with her layers grown out.

What’s Jennifer’s natural hair texture?

She has naturally wavy, medium-texture hair, and she has what you would call good hair—it goes curly really easily if you scrunch it, and if you blow-dry it straight, it stays straight but with body.

What shampoo and conditioner does she use?

She loves having her hair shampooed fresh and clean. She shampoos and conditions pretty much every day—if she’s going for the day-old-hair look, she prefers to create it using products. The shampoo and conditioner she’s using right now are my shampoo and conditioner. I used her and Courteney Cox as my guinea pigs. Jennifer uses the products every day. She also loves deep conditioners—I’ll do professional treatments at my salon using Shu Uemura products.

What hair products did she use before she came to you?

Oh, God, we used to laugh—she loved Aussie 3 Minute Miracle back in the day. We would use that stuff. We loved the smell of it. They also have that Aussie Sprunch Hairspray—we’d use that, too.

How does Jennifer keep her hair looking great between salon visits?
