Fitness and Body Image Myths

by: Stefan Simonovic

No, you don’t need to look like the guy in the photo to get into biker dating. And yes, being obsessed with fitness can lead to your overall unhappiness. In this modern world we live in there are so many things negatively affecting our self-confidence that countless books, research papers, and articles have been written on the topic. Striving for perfection leads to misery in any sphere of life, plain and simple, and today we take a look at the body image myths that have no business being on anyone’s mind.

Myth #1: It’s best to accept myself the way I am

This is a very tricky body image myth because in certain cases, yes, accepting that you’re a size 12 and were meant to be a size 12, not a size 2, can be very helpful instead of trying to turn yourself into something you’re not. On the other hand, there are other issues with this ‘acceptance’ that should be questioned or downright changed, such as a personal addiction to sugar, junk food or heavy alcohol consumption. It’s perfectly fine to be a size 12, but it’s not fine to eat unhealthy food and rationalize it by accepting to be plus-size. Eating healthy and regularly working out should be a priority no matter what your body issues are because some negative effects of an unhealthy lifestyle are no longer reversible past a certain point in life.

Myth #2: It’s not what I look like that counts, but who I am as a person

Beware of another very problematic body image myth. Believing that the outside doesn’t count as long as you’ve got a beautiful inside can lead to neglecting not only your physical appearance but your physical health above anything else. Sure, it’s far more important to be a good person than to be hot, but that doesn’t mean you should let yourself go physically. Being in shape and eating healthy has nothing to do with what you look like on the outside or what size you’re wearing, and nobody should confuse the two. Self-development is crucial for happiness, but being physically active and having a proper diet means you get to stay healthy for longer. Healthy body, healthy mind, right?

Myth #3: I’m consumed with healthy eating and don’t need to worry about anything else

This is the other end of the spectrum or the other extreme that people can go to. Focusing too much on exercise and eating healthy all the time can turn into an obsession or worshiping your body. It’s a social insanity that we’ve seen way too many times that not only can be spiritually destructive and account for much of the unhappiness we see everywhere, but it can also be unhealthy for the body. Kudos to those who’re in good shape, don’t skip leg day at the gym, and get up at 6 every other morning to go for a jog, but your body needs time to heal after every workout, and not giving it that time can result in injury or too much wear and tear over the years.

A Short Guide to Intermittent Fasting

by: Stefan Simonovic

Source: Flickr

Nowadays, we can witness countless things going on around the world via the Internet, from political and economic changes on a global scale to less significant ones like Buzzfeed losing popularity as opposed to transgender dating trend which is currently on the rise, for example.

On the other hand, there are a lot of different diets online as well, all seemingly designed to help you lose weight, become healthier and maintain an optimal state of body and mind. With that said, we want to introduce you to the recent trend of intermittent fasting and how to properly utilize it to your benefit.

More than just a Fad

There are many diets that make sense nowadays. Unfortunately, there are a lot of fad eating plans that try to sell the idea of losing excess weight within ridiculously short amounts of time, too. Luckily, intermittent fasting is anything like that.

Namely, the IF eating plan is unique in a couple of ways. First, it’s not your regular diet that tells you exactly how much of which food you’re supposed to consume on each day. A person who is intermittently fasting isn’t restricting themselves in terms of which foods they have to eliminate completely from their diet. Instead, they’re just eating foods in a pre-determined manner.

Basically, IF means continuously switching between fasting and regular eating. Most people choose the path of fasting 24 hours twice per week, but you can choose any interval that may suit your needs better.

Interestingly enough, there’s actual science behind this. It has proven that our ancestors, who mostly hunted or gathered their food, didn’t have what to eat sometimes, which forced them into intermittent fasting whether they liked it or not. After some time, those same humans started developing a larger tolerance to hunger, which allowed them to last longer without food and made them physically healthier in the process.

Choose Your Way

As we've said before, there is more than one method of applying intermittent fasting to your eating plan. Since it’s more of an eating pattern than a diet, it offers a lot more freedom than some other modern diets out there.

The 16/8 method is the most basic way of utilizing IF. You should skip breakfast, eat only 8 hours after waking up, and then fast for the next 16 hours. This is repeated on a daily basis and is easiest to follow since it pretty much becomes routine after day three.

We have already mentioned the “fast for 24 hours twice per week” method above. This is the most popular one, as it doesn’t really require too much fasting – you should skip dinner twice a week and you’ll be good.

Lastly, we have the 5:2 method that promotes consuming 500-600 calories for two non-consecutive days in a single week, while you can eat normally for the rest of that same week.

Old Spice and Ducati Motorbike Honor Today’s Man with the Spice Up your Ride Raffle Promo

PRESS RELEASE


A man’s man is not a man who shies away from the crowd nor a man who hides when the going gets tough. He is someone who is loud, proud, and stands out from the crowd by being their absolute best in every aspect, even in their personal care. Old Spice, the manliest grooming brand on the planet, has recently launched the ‘Spice Up Your Ride’ raffle promo, where a lucky guy gets to win an exclusive Old Spice Edition of the equally confident and striking Ducati SuperSport motorbike.

“We want today’s man to not settle for the bland and the conventional. Today’s man should be able to stand out and be fully confident of themselves. With Old Spice, you get to spice up your ride, making you feel confident in whatever endeavor you are in to, whether it is about your career, your sport, your social life, or your personal life. We want you to take charge. And with our friends in Ducati, you get to do this by elevating your game with the limited edition Old Spice Ducati SuperSport”, shared Old Spice Philippines at the launch event in Social House, Circuit Makati, Makati City.

However, what does it means to be today’s man, a man’s man? Old Spice has scouted the nation in search for Filipinos who have spiced up their rides by going the extra mile in the things they are passionate about while looking good and feeling confident. Two standout men were recognized, Noel Agra, who is not just a well-trained chef but also an avid obstacle course racer, and Christian Busby, a model whose passions include blogging and going on adventures.


They were asked what drove them to confidently pursue the things they love. “As a fat kid, I have always loved food so I decided to become a chef. While for obstacle course racing, I did one with my dad two years ago and ever since, we got hooked and we wanted to share this love for obstacle course racing here in the Philippines”, explained Noel. Christian, a Filipino-English model and travel-oriented blogger shared, “Since I was young, I already love exploring new things, learning about new cultures. The thing that fascinates me is just seeing a different culture and trying to adapt.“

Now as guys who are not only pursuing what they love but excelling in them, they imparted meaningful pieces of advice for those who want to man-up and become a man’s man. Noel, recalls a memorable quote from Kung Fu Panda 3, “If you only do what you can, you will never be more than what you are now”. That, for him, has always kept him growing and has always challenged him. For Christian, he has two secrets for success. First, you have to set goals that are really high and then reach it. Second, he said, “You got to be confident in yourself. Groom yourself well, put Old Spice on you and smell good. Confidence is a huge key.”

L-R: Dante Robles, Market Manager of Old Spice Philippines; Model/blogger Christian Busby; Dulah Lipardo, General Manager of RPG Distribution Services, Inc.; Chef/obstacle course racer Noel Agra; and Kyle De Vera, Senior Marketing Specialist of RPG Distribution Services Inc.

The Importance of Exercise for Addiction Recovery

by: Stefan Simonovic

Source: Flickr

Addiction is never a good thing. Period.

Some individuals are addicted to seemingly harmless things like food or biker dating sites and don’t even consider themselves addicts, yet are still endangered by potential complications that might source later from their addiction. Differently put, there is no such thing as more and less harmful addictions - none of them should be taken lightly.

However, when it comes to recovering from an addiction, there are certain ways by which you can make that whole process much easier. In this light, we’re going to talk about how exercising affects addiction recovery in a positive way.

Something to Focus On

Exercising is most commonly used to lose excess weight and shape one’s body. When we’re talking about addiction recovery, working out has proven to be essential because it allows an addict to focus on something concrete during the recovery process. Namely, attempting to keep yourself in shape can occupy your mind just enough to help you forget about the problems. Moreover, you might even gain a fresh perspective on your addiction as well as the consequences it could have on your life should you continue to act irresponsibly.

Bettering Yourself

Another more obvious reason to exercise while recovering from addiction would be the actual betterment of ones' self, both physical and psychological. So, staying healthy and prolonging your life are just some of the many benefits exercising can bring to the table. On the other hand, working out can easily replace a former addict’s ruinous rituals and thus help them create a new and healthy routine. For example, those who had a food addiction will find it easier to overcome their cravings if they exercise, as they’ll have less time to eat. It doesn’t hurt to mention that one isn’t obliged to engage in heavy workouts immediately. Some studies have proven that doing even the most minor exercise like walking for half an hour a day can help reduce addiction-related anxiety and significantly improve one’s health.

No Time for Games

The last but not least benefit of exercising in regards to addiction recovery comes in the form of taking up time one would otherwise spend on thinking about the addiction, succumbing to cravings or losing mind over trying hard to overcome urges caused by an addiction.

First off, if you choose to exercise seriously, you’ll have to create a workout plan before you start doing anything. This will immediately take up a good chunk of your time and will help keep your mind off an addiction. Then, you can time your workouts in such a way so that you don’t have any “void” time whatsoever. Also, you can choose a type of workout and intensity of training that suits your needs best, especially if you haven’t been active and lived a sedentary lifestyle for quite some time.

Have you ever tried exercising to get rid of an addiction? Did it help you? We’d really like to hear all about it in the comment section below!

Sleep Apnea is More Serious than You Realize

by: Stefan Simonovic

Source: everydayhealth.com

While some of us worry if there’ll be enough sun to hit the beach tomorrow, others are wondering if they’ll ever find love online. And while these are both valid worries, there are still those among us who are fighting to experience one of the most basic human needs normally, which is sleep.

There’s no denying that sleep apnea is a real condition and that many, many people suffer from it. It might seem like it’s just a snoring problem that it isn’t that serious to begin with, but studies have proven not only that this condition is more common than what most people think, but also that it’s more dangerous than most of us realize.

No Sleep = More Need for Sleep

We’ll start things off with the most logical consequence of sleep apnea, which is basically sleepiness all around.

By definition, sleep apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder that most of us will describe as “really loud snoring.” However, it actually comes in two forms: obstructive and central sleep apnea.

The former is the most common form and revolves around an actual physical obstruction in the vascular system that’s preventing normal breathing, while the latter refers to failed signals from the brain to the muscle groups that are responsible for our breathing. Sometimes, a person can even have a combination of the two.

Now, considering that sleep apnea can easily prevent a person from sleeping normally, it often results in having a larger than usual need to sleep when you’re supposed to be wide awake. This can cause many different issues, most dangerous of which are related to driving. Just imagine falling asleep behind the steering wheel because you woke up about 10 times last night since you weren’t able to breathe properly.

Critical Failure

Still, we haven’t even mentioned the most dangerous risks of sleep apnea. Namely, most people will link their drowsiness with current stress or a depressive episode without being aware that their sleep apnea is actually causing these. More importantly, they won’t know that it can trigger some far more serious illnesses and conditions, too.

It’s been proven over and over again that sleep apnea more often than not affects the overall quality of one’s life. Differently put, you can’t perform your everyday tasks normally, your work performance falls off and you’re susceptible to having your emotional and mental health degraded.

However, the most serious risks of this condition come in the form of cardiovascular events. As it happens, sleep apnea can easily cause a person’s oxygen levels to drop, therefore endangering some of the more vital organs like the heart, brain, and lungs.

Studies have shown that those who suffer from sleep apnea have a much higher risk of stroke, cardiac arrest, arrhythmia, early memory change, pre-diabetes and even full-blown diabetes than those without the condition.

So, the next time you hear someone snore really loudly and roll restlessly in bed due to it, advise them to see a doctor about it and get proper treatment for their condition.

Obesity Rates Higher in Country than City

by: Stefan Simonovic

Source: Flickr

Apart from those interested in BBW dating, not many of us are aware of just how much obesity there is in the U.S. Moreover, it shouldn’t be strange at all that the obesity rates are pretty high across the country given how much junk food and candy we get into our system every day.

And even though the amount of obese people is more or less justified, we’re pretty sure that nobody knows that the percentage of obesity is higher in rural areas than in cities. With that said, let’s dive deeper into the matter and check what not one, but two analyses have concluded.

Obesity doesn’t care about Age

The study was helmed by Craig M. Hales, MD, Chery D. Fryar, MSPH, and Margaret D. Carrol, MSPH, who work at the National Center for Health Statistics, the US Public Health Service and the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, respectively.

They took two groups – adults and children – and compared their height, weight and living location over the course of 5 years, from 2001 to 2006. They have compiled the results and published them on the JAMA Network recently, pointing out to an unexpected fact: there are more obese people in the country than in the city.

For example, when it comes to women, about 38% of those who live within a population greater than a million were obese, while that number goes up to 42.5% in populations smaller than a million. On the other hand, the percentage of obese women in rural areas reaches stunning 47.2%.

The numbers for men are showing a similar pattern: 31.8% in large cities, 42.4 percent in small urban populations and 38.9% in country areas. The numbers for men and women repeat themselves when it comes to male and female children – more obese kids in the country than in the city, basically.

Other Factors

This study attempted to take into account age, race, ethnicity, smoking habits and education level. However, these factors didn’t show much.

Firstly, there was no real difference between white and black men, even though Hispanic men have shown a dramatically higher obesity rate than either of the previous two groups. Unlike this comparison, black women have a higher obesity percentage than white women (55.9% to 38.1%). Hispanic women have about 48% obesity rates, while this number goes down to 13.6% in Asian females.

The last significant factor was education. As it happens, there was no difference between obesity rates in males with a high school education and male college graduates. However, the obesity rates are raised significantly for women as their education levels get lower.

Bottom line, these new statistics are showing that obesity isn’t only more widespread than ever before, but also that it’s becoming a plague in the countryside even more than it is in the cities, despite the fact that city folk are proven to have a more sedentary lifestyle that includes high amounts of junk food.

Can I Drink Alcohol while Taking Antibiotics?

by: Stefan Simonovic

Source: Flickr

These days, we live quite hectic lives that are filled with intensive experiences. Now, we don’t want to imply this is a bad thing by default, as it lets us experience many different things, from learning to skydive to experimenting with transgender dating. On the other hand, we all know that the fast and excessive lifestyle that most of us practice can leave us physically drained, stressed out or with the considerably weakened immune system that is basically a free ticket to numerous infections.

Therefore, we wanted to look into the question that has been known to bother millennials, especially in situations where they’re trying to get over an illness but still want to party with their friends – can one drink alcohol safely while consuming antibiotics?

A Dangerous Mix

As you probably know, medication plus alcohol almost certainly equals a bad time. There’s a pretty good reason why most (if not all) drugs that doctors prescribe us have huge warning labels that say these shouldn’t be mixed with alcoholic beverages as well as with specific types of food.

You see, taking any kind of medication only to drink alcohol afterward pretty much renders the drug irrelevant. Namely, all doctor-prescribed drugs are used to help our organism while booze has a completely opposite effect, which means that the two counter each other with alcohol emerging as victor every time.

However, that’s not all of it. Mixing alcohol with medication also usually leads to negative side effects, some of which you certainly don’t want to experience. The worst part of this lies in the chance that alcohol will worsen the symptoms of the infection you’re trying to cure with antibiotics.

Possible Side Effects May Include…

Now, let’s take a quick look as to exactly which side effects you might experience when you chug down booze after taking a dose of antibiotics.

Most commonly, the side effects of antibiotics revolve around possibly decreased motor skills, but ultimately it all depends on the medication you’re taking. Other most common side effects involve but aren’t reduced to are sleepiness, dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, and diarrhea.

As far as alcohol goes, the effect it has on an average human is well-known to everyone. However, it can still have side effects. Usually, this involves digestive problems like diarrhea, ulcers, stomach pain, while sometimes it can also lead to tiredness.

Now it's getting really bad. Considering which side effects you can get from these two things separately, just imagine what kind of risk you’re running if you’re mixing alcohol with antibiotics. Some of the most serious side effects include vomiting, severe nausea and, once again, diarrhea.

Still, you might not feel even one of these. Some people never experience any side effects of any medication, but if you do need to mix infection meds with booze and you feel too warm, your skin becomes red for no reason, you get a massive headache or your heart rate suddenly goes through the roof, you’re probably experiencing a negative reaction to antibiotics mixed with alcohol.

So, to answer the titular question: yes, yes you can drink alcohol while taking antibiotics. Perhaps you won’t have any issues and you won’t experience any side effects, but it’s still not something that any doctor ever would recommend – unless they want you to have a really bad time.

6 Things Successful People Do Before 9 AM

by: Stefan Simonovic

Designed by Freepik

It doesn't matter if you're young, middle-aged, or a member of the senior dating niche, you probably want to lead a successful life. However, achieving this particular goal is not that easy. You need to establish certain rules and routines in order to reach a desired level of productivity. One of the ways to do that is by having a strict morning routine. Namely, starting every single day in a productive fashion can definitely improve the quality of your life. Therefore, we’ve decided to present you with some of the things successful people do before 9 am.

They Make Their Beds And Pick Their Outfits

Being organized is a crucial step towards productivity. Even the simplest things such as making a bed or choosing your work outfit can save you some precious time and motivate you to be more efficient. A lot of successful people have the need to tidy up their bedrooms before they leave for work. It gives them a sense of achievement which is always nice. Also, they tend to pick out the clothes they're going to wear right after they wake up. They do this to avoid potential time loss.

They Exercise Every Morning

One of the ways to be more productive in the morning is to engage in a regular morning exercise. This healthy habit can do wonders for your overall health and your daily routine. A morning exercise wakes a person up and provides them with better blood flow, which allows them to focus on their job better. A lot of businessmen and businesswomen jog every single morning before breakfast.

They Drink Coffee Or Refreshing Beverages

Despite what some people might say, one cup of coffee in the morning is something that helps everyone function normally during the day. However, besides this “love potion”, a lot of successful individuals tend to drink refreshing beverages such as lemon water or orange juice every morning. Citrus fruit is full of vitamin C which has a positive and refreshing effect on a person's mind and body.

They Have Breakfast With Their Loved Ones

Efficient people love to socialize right after they get up. It helps them wake up completely and focus on their daily agenda. They usually enjoy a breakfast with their loved ones, which provides them with positive energy for the day ahead.

They Set Their Priorities And Goals

Most people are successful simply because they know how to organize their life. They set their priorities and goals for the entire week. That is the very first thing they do on a Monday morning because knowing your goals is the first step towards achieving them.

They Make A Plan For The Day

After setting realistic goals, productive people usually make a plan for the day. Trying to accomplish certain goals without a proper and well-written plan is ill-advised. Instead, you should always put pen to paper and write down the steps you want to take. Make a good plan, stick to it, and you won't have anything to worry about.

Palarong Pinoy Fun Run

Note: This event has been cancelled.

For Filipinos who were born, raised, and experienced their childhood before the digital age, the words "online", "mobile", "tablet", "cellphone", and etc. were all unheard. But it was also these generations who all learned about competition and sportsmanship in the games we used to play on the streets. Neighbors used to be close-knit even if they are not blood-related, there were no strangers among the kids, getting sweaty and bruises are all normal and part of our childhood!

What about a chance to bring back those memories and show the younger generation what it was like playing piko or sipa during recess; exercise agility, strength and flexibility with hula-hoop, limbo rock, luksong-tinik; or even play by teams with patintero?

Once in our lifetime, a fun run comes, giving you the satisfaction of running as well as participating in game stops that can let your inner batang pinoy have his larong pinoy for the day!


Palarong Pinoy Fun Run will re-instill our old ways of "gaming" by reliving the traditional pinoy fun games along the route.

The rules of engagement are quite clear and simple:

• Every kilometer ends with a Pinoy game. Play that game to proceed running your race.
• Failure to play the game means a consequence is required. You can only move on by doing a burpee or jumping jack.

Finish your race unto the festival area with a haven of Pinoy delicacies and more gaming!

Have it all in the Palarong Pinoy Fun Run.

4 Ways to Break Your Phone Addiction So You Can Focus Better on Your Goals

by: Stefan Simonovic

Designed by Freepik

We live in a modern world in which technology and internet have crucial roles. This, of course, is a good thing, but ever since smartphones made an appearance, people became absolutely addicted to these little gadgets. We can't blame them, though. These new cellphones allow them to conduct their work, have fun on social media, and even find love online. Now, even though these phones can be rather practical and useful, the constant need to check your notifications and messages might interfere with your daily routine. So, if you feel addicted to your phone, here are 4 ways to break that addiction and focus better on your daily goals and assignments.

Keep It Out Of Your Reach

This is sort of an "out of sight, out of mind" strategy, but it works. Keeping your phone out of reach is definitely one of the best ways to break this nasty addiction. If your smartphone is constantly in your proximity, you won't be able to resist the temptation to check all those notifications and messages which will negatively affect your productivity. So, if you're not expecting an important call, make sure to keep your phone away from your work environment.

Delete The Time-Consuming Apps

Like we already said, checking your phone every 10 minutes has a negative effect on your routine and efficiency. However, there's a way to prevent that from happening. All you need to do is delete the most addictive and time-consuming apps on your device. If you tend to shift between Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, make sure to delete those three apps and you'll save yourself some precious time. By eliminating the social apps, you'll increase your productivity, be sure of it.

Turn Off The Notifications On Your Phone

If for some reason you can't delete those apps we mentioned above, you should find a way to keep them from breaking your concentration. Like you probably know, various alerts and notification sounds can be both distracting and annoying, so the best way to keep your focus is by turning off all the notifications except text messages and your main ringtone. You'll be able to concentrate on your assignments and you won't miss any of the important calls and messages.

Replace This Habit With Something Else

Breaking certain habits can be really tough and complicated, so if you can't do that, you can always replace the habit of checking your phone with a new, better habit. In order to do this, you need something that will be a substitute for your smartphone, like a book for example. All you need to do is keep your phone out of reach and keep a book close to you. So, when you feel the urge to check your phone, you can simply pick up a book and read a few pages. This way, you'll break this nasty phone addiction, save yourself some valuable time, and improve your overall knowledge.
