If sometimes you feel that mercury dawned on you and that nothing you do helps loose those extra pounds, then try the so-called Moon Diet.

Based on chronobiology, a science that studies the rhythms and biological cycles of the human being, this diet is based on the influence that the lunar phases have on the water the human body contains, that is why the liquid fast is its fundamental component.

It is about fasting (abstain from eating) in the lunar phases known as New Moon and Full Moon: spend those two days only ingesting plenty of water, some infusions without sugar or natural fruit juices with fructose sweeteners.

On the days of Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent, “fasting means”  it should be made in addition to liquids, some low-fat soups, fruit or dietary gelatins should be included. It seems like a great astrological sacrifice, but it really is only four days a month that can make a big difference.

Sentence yourself 12 years older

An unhealthy habits make you look older

A US study has found personally guilty, those of us who commit the following four crimes in their lives: smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not exercising and eating badly. The sentence is to look 12 years older than you really are.

Very strange for eating and loving

Drinking a cup of cobra blood can be an exotic experience for many, even completely unthinkable, but for men in China, it is much less than extravagant: it is an aphrodisiac.

Traditional oriental medicine has a large and historical repertoire of consumables that enhance sexual activity; the slime that the eel secretes when touched or the duck eggs that contain a partially formed fetus, are consumed in Asia almost like if it were popcorn!

The Spanish fly, the blowfish (careful, it is poisonous if not processed), the flesh of the wolf, the penis of the tiger and the horns of the rhino are other of the rarest aphrodisiacs in the world. So, when you`re relaxing on a Venezuelan beach and hear the traditional eating offers of  “mattress breaker “, “come back to life”, “tent raiser” and “mother-in-law killer”, do not think it twice and go to the good and very well-known Creole aphrodisiac experience.
