According to the Natural Food Series, here are the some of the things that you can do to gain weight:


1. Eat regularly
Decide what time will you eat. Eating during the same hours each day decreases the risk of missing out on a meal due to lack of time or forgetfulness.

“One way to go about this could be to aim for six meals/day, including: (1) breakfast, (2) snack, (3) lunch, (4) snack, (5) dinner, and (6) snack. Eating accordingly, with a meal at every third hour, is an approach that works great for tons of people. Experiment and find a schedule that suits your needs and daily life,” it was noted.

2. Eat more calories

To gain weight, one of the first things you need to do is to create a positive energy balance. 

“This basically means that the energy you get from your food intake needs to be higher than the amount of energy that you burn (by moving and exercising),” it was explained. 

3. Add more fat to your diet
Fat is the most energy dense out of all nutrients, containing as much as nine calories per one gram. 

“In other words, eating more fat is a great way to boost your total caloric intake and thus, help you gain weight…. Start by topping your meals with olive oil. Use full-fat dairy products instead of the low-fat choices. Fill out your stews with seeds, nuts, or cheese. Other great fat sources are eggs, avocado, almonds, walnuts, peanut-butter, and yogurt – which also suits perfectly as snacks,” it was disclosed. 


4. Enjoy your meal
While eating, one must avoid stress or rushing.

“Take time to sit down and actually enjoy your food. Add different flavors and spices from what you normally use when you cook. Or get inspired by trying a completely new recipe. Another way to that could help you to gain weight is by eating in company with others,” it was advised.

Housemaid Jailed For Having Sex With Lover At Sponsors House

Many Filipinos especially those in the remote areas of the country.   They can only avail of medical attention once in a blue moon through medical missions coming from non-government organizations (NGO's) and other health advocacy groups. Instances also happen where citizens, even at the heart of the city suffer illnesses and just succumb to their deaths without having treated due to expensive medications and hospitalization. Soon, all Filipinos will have access to free health services including the families of the overseas Filipino workers (OFW).   This situation is about to change as the new universal health bill was already approved and soon to be enacted as a law. The Senate passed on third and final reading a bill that seeks to provide adequate health care services to Filipinos. The senators unanimously voted for the approval of Senate Bill #1986 also known as the "Universal Health Care Bill."   President Rodrigo Duterte wanted it to be certified urgent and called for the proposed measure's passage at the Senate.       Ads     Sponsored Links     With this law being enacted, Filipinos will be given health care coverage and benefits under the National Health Security Program, which replaces the National Health Insurance Program or Philhealth.  Under the universal health care law, "contributors" or those who have the capacity to pay will have to pay for their premiums while the government will shoulder the contributions of non-contributors. Funds for the subsidy will be included in the annual General Appropriations Act as well as sin taxes from cigarettes will also be a major source of funding for the policy.  Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, who authored the bill when he was still a party-list representative, thanked the Senate for passing what he considers to be a "groundbreaking" law.  The House of Representative had previously passed a version of the bill (House Bill No 5784) in September 2017.     The President's move in certifying the bill as urgent shows the administration's "unrelenting commitment to provide the marginalized and disadvantaged with sufficient and better health care services," Roque said.

More often, families with overseas Filipino workers (OFW) rely on their OFW breadwinner in providing their needs and without doing any efforts to have extra income. They use the money they receive to pay their bills, rents, mortgages, etc. They tend to spend the remittances they receive and wait for the next remittance when the money is over without any savings. This is the reason why no matter how long the OFWs exhaust themselves working overseas, they are still coming home broke and without any savings.

Many Filipinos especially those in the remote areas of the country.   They can only avail of medical attention once in a blue moon through medical missions coming from non-government organizations (NGO's) and other health advocacy groups. Instances also happen where citizens, even at the heart of the city suffer illnesses and just succumb to their deaths without having treated due to expensive medications and hospitalization. Soon, all Filipinos will have access to free health services including the families of the overseas Filipino workers (OFW).   This situation is about to change as the new universal health bill was already approved and soon to be enacted as a law. The Senate passed on third and final reading a bill that seeks to provide adequate health care services to Filipinos. The senators unanimously voted for the approval of Senate Bill #1986 also known as the "Universal Health Care Bill."   President Rodrigo Duterte wanted it to be certified urgent and called for the proposed measure's passage at the Senate.       Ads     Sponsored Links     With this law being enacted, Filipinos will be given health care coverage and benefits under the National Health Security Program, which replaces the National Health Insurance Program or Philhealth.  Under the universal health care law, "contributors" or those who have the capacity to pay will have to pay for their premiums while the government will shoulder the contributions of non-contributors. Funds for the subsidy will be included in the annual General Appropriations Act as well as sin taxes from cigarettes will also be a major source of funding for the policy.  Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, who authored the bill when he was still a party-list representative, thanked the Senate for passing what he considers to be a "groundbreaking" law.  The House of Representative had previously passed a version of the bill (House Bill No 5784) in September 2017.     The President's move in certifying the bill as urgent shows the administration's "unrelenting commitment to provide the marginalized and disadvantaged with sufficient and better health care services," Roque said.

As overseas Filipino workers (OFW) working in an unfamiliar territory, we feel comfortable whenever we see a compatriot or a fellow Filipino abroad. In some instances, very unfortunate things happen like getting into a trouble because of a fellow Filipino. The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Consulate General in Saudi Arabia confirmed that an OFW was stabbed and killed by a fellow OFW in Jeddah, KSA.      Ads     Sponsored Links    A Filipino was stabbed and killed by a fellow Filipino in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, according to the confirmation of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).  The victim (name withheld) was a 29-year-old from Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao, who worked as a family driver in Jeddah.

The two "allegedly engaged in a fistfight in front of the house of their employer that ended in the victim getting fatally stabbed by his fellow driver." The motive of the stabbing is still unknown.  The Consulate General and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Jeddah will extend full assistance to both Filipinos as well as their families.    The victim is set for a vacation to the Philippines soon but the incident turned out to be unfortunate that he will come home inside a box.  Consul General Edgar Badajos said that the suspect is facing a death sentence as per Saudi Sharia law.

More often, families with overseas Filipino workers (OFW) rely on their OFW breadwinner in providing their needs and without doing any efforts to have extra income. They use the money they receive to pay their bills, rents, mortgages, etc. They tend to spend the remittances they receive and wait for the next remittance when the money is over without any savings. This is the reason why no matter how long the OFWs exhaust themselves working overseas, they are still coming home broke and without any savings.

Warning: Cheese Can Put Your Health At Risk



Despite being beneficial to your body, eating cheese can also put your health at risk.

According to the University of California’s Berkeley Wellness, despite being rich in calcium and other nutrients, cheese can also be unhealthy.

“Cheese has merits, including its bone-building calcium. But the way we usually eat it—slathered on pizza, poured over nachos, stacked on crackers—cancels out any health benefits. After all, cheese is high in calories (about 100 per ounce, on average) and fat (six to nine grams per ounce, most of which is saturated), and it often contains a lot of sodium,” it noted.

Here are the things that you must be aware of when it comes to cheese:

1. Cheese provides calcium and protein—as well as vitamin A, B12, riboflavin, zinc, and phosphorus—and is a source of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which may have anti-cancer, weight-reducing, and heart-protective effects. However, one must eat a lot of cheese first before he/she can get meaningful amounts of CLA; which also means that he/she will also be getting lots of unhealthy saturated fat and calories. To note, low-fat cheese contains less CLA while nonfat cheese contains none.

2. A 2009 study in Nutrition & Metabolism, which was funded by the National Dairy Council, found that cheese and other dairy food may help prevent weight gain after dieting; while another study found that regular cheese eaters gained less weight over time than those who ate cheese less often. On the other hand, other studies—including one from Johns Hopkins in 2008—revealed that people who eat more cheese tend to be more overweight.


3. Cheese may not be especially good for your heart—but some research suggests that it may not be so bad for it either, at least when it’s part of an overall healthy diet. To note, the Mediterranean diet, which is associated with many health benefits—such as lowered risk of cardiovascular disease—allows moderate amounts of cheese. More over, cheese and other dairy food are an important part of the anti-hypertension DASH diet.

4. A large Swedish study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found a link between cheese (at least two ounces a day) and reduced risk of colorectal cancer in women. Other studies, however, have not found this benefit; few even linked dairy products such as cheese to increased prostate and ovarian cancer.

5. Reduced-fat, low-fat and non-fat cheeses are good choices if you eat more than an ounce a day, or if a recipe calls for large amounts of cheese.
