Patient discussion about excess

Q. what do we need to do to burn excess fat from the body? Can anyone suggest particular exercise for burning excess fat from the body? and how to make six bag abs?

A. doing regular work outs and having a balanced nutrition will help your muscles to develop. muscles get bigger after they have been used repetitively over a certain period of time. that meant they will burn more energy while working and even while resting. then your fat layer will shrink over the time.

Q. What diet should I take on to reduce this excessive wrinkling? I am 34 and my skin looks much older. My facial skin is sagging. It is also very dry and dull. My face glow has reduced. Couple of years back I was healthy and I had a glowing skin and a very bright face. I have used some of the cosmetics but in vain and it exceeds my budget too. So I thought to try for good diet pattern to support my skin clarity. What diet should I take on to reduce this excessive wrinkling?

A. recovering damaged skin and collagen is not likely...sorry..but you can avoid more damage by doing a very simple thing- USE SUNBLOCK!!!
the most damaging thing to our skin is sun radiation. all those creams that supposedly protect your skin and revitalizing it- are much less affective then just using simple sun block.

Q. My child loves spinach and demands them a lot I wanted to know is there any problem to have them in excess?

A. HELL NO! REWARD THE HELL OUT OF HIM FOR EATING IT! You may also want to tweak it further by introducing him to other healthy dark green leafys like collards, kale, red Swiss chard which he might think is cool to look at; its actually similar in taste to spinach just less bitter! Good for you!
