In Katsina yeasterday, thousands of Muslims under the auspices of Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky took to the streets to stage a peaceful protest to express their anger over the blasphemous movie and cartoon made against the personality of the Holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (SAW). Similar protest was held in Kano last week.

The protesters commenced the peaceful procession from the Juma’at Mosque, Kofar-Soro in the state municipality around 9 am. They went round the state capital through Darma quarters to Rafin-Dadi through Mobil filing station to Sabuwar-Kasuwa to Kerau through General Hospital and back to Juma’at Mosque.

Addressing the protesters, the leader of the movement in Katsina, Sheikh Yaqub Yahaya Katsina condemned the movie and cartoon, saying “both the movie and the cartoon were made deliberately to provoke Muslims and therefore we condemned them entirely. Muslims would not fold their arms watching few individuals attacking the holy sanctity of the Prophet of Islam in the name of freedom of expression.”

“To Muslims, the integrity of Prophet Muhammad is above everything in this world and therefore no one in this world can attack him and go scot-free. Islam is a wise religion, and its followers are respecting other religions, hence followers of other religions should also respect Islam. Because of the existing cordial relationship between Muslims and Christians in Katsina, we have invited our Christian brothers to join us in the protest. I am sure those responsible for the production of the movie and cartoon were not true Christians.”

The anti-islam movie has stirred protests in many parts of the world with some ending ugly. So far in Nigeria, all related protests have been peaceful.

Being overweight or obese can be detrimental to your health. It is not advisable to have excess fat in the abdominal cavity because it can lead to some health issues. Getting your dream body will not be easy and you need to make some sacrifices to your diet. You will also need to turn a blind eye to some fatty foods.

If you’re ready to get rid of the belly fat, then stay put as Information Nigeria brings you some important tips that will help.

1. Avoid sugar and carbonated drinks

Did you know that consuming sugary substances like coke, fanta can lead to weight gain and a number of health problems like high blood pressure?. This is due to the high fructose content found in added sugars. Taking sugar-filled drinks may slow your metabolism and this in turn can make it harder for your body to burn fat. Fructose can only be metabolized by your liver. When you consume too much, you push your liver to its limit and it becomes overloaded, then it turns the fructose into fat and it ends up getting stored in your belly. To avoid putting yourself from risk, you should cut back on foods and drinks that contain huge amounts of sugar.

 

2. You also have to forgo junk foods like meat pie, cakes, rolls, candies, burgers, ice cream and cookies. You also need to do away with heavy foods like eba, akpu, pounded yam, rice among others. Switch up your eating habits and opt for a more balanced-diet if you want to burn your belly fat. Avoid consuming refined carbs like bread, pizza, potation chips etc. You should also stay away from processed and heavy foods because they contribute to stubborn belly fat. You should choose to eat proteinous foods like fish, eggs, and milk. starch contains fat, sugar and salt. They help a person feel fuller so you don’t end up looking for something to munch on after eating. It basically keeps hunger at bay.

3. Eat the right amount of fruits, vegetables, fibrous foods and whole grains – You can add vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your weight loss diet. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances that are good for your body. Examples of fibre rich foods include; beans, broccoli, avocados, apples, oatmeal brown rice and whole grain bread.

4. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily or weekly routine – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism and helps you shed weight. The bitter truth is that wearing just waist trainers and staying put in one position will not make you lose that stubborn belly fat. You should hit the gym.

5 Reduce alcohol intake – Excess intake of alcohol also leads to a host of health problems especially the build-up of fat in the belly area. Have you ever noticed that those who drink alcohol, especially men, often develop ‘pot-bellies’. Alcoholic drinks like beer provide your body with calories and very little nutrients. It can also increase your appetite. Replace the alcoholic drinks with water or alternate with low calorie, non-alcoholic beverages. Too much alcohol can cause liver damage and other serious health problems.

6. Try out apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. It is obtained from apples that have been crushed, distilled and fermented. Acetic acid is the main active component of apple cider vinegar. It is safe for consumption in small quantities and can be taken as a supplement. Do not also consume it straight from the bottle or in its pure form. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to water before you drink. You can also add honey or lemon. It is best to drink it before your meals.
