TNMValentinesGifts-588x260A day to show the people we love just how much we love them, Valentine’s Day is definitely special. It’s one of those days where you don’t really want to spend a ton on a gift, but you want to get the right gift. And that’s really what it’s all about – knowing your lover well enough to get them the right gift.

And what do I mean by the right gift? I like to think of the right gift as whatever will make the recipient’s heart smile. The right gift is important because giving a gift is a chance to show someone that you love and appreciate them and all that they do for you. The best gifts can be anything from a piece of jewelry to an experience together. It’s not about how much money you spend, but rather it’s about how much time you spend selecting a gift that will make the one you love happy.

Here are a few Valentine’s Day gift ideas that I think do a great job of expressing true love and appreciation. Obviously you can make your final decision based on what you know about the love in your life, but I think at least one thing on this list is guaranteed to bring a smile to their face and make your Valentine’s Day one to remember.

1. Romantic Movie Night
Fellas, this is a chance for you to make her happy. Get two of her favorite chick flicks, some popcorn, chocolate, and her favorite beverage (maybe some bubbly). Then, sit back and actually try to enjoy the movies with her. She will appreciate the gesture more than you know.

2. Hot Air Balloon Ride

This is definitely on the pricey side. But if you are in a position to splurge, not many things are more romantic than a hot air balloon ride with your boo. You just can’t go wrong

3. Scratch Map
This is a cute gift if you both are into traveling, or you have big plans to travel together in the coming years. This scratch map is a fun way to keep track of the places you’ll go… together.

4. A Love Letter
Sometimes, the best gifts are free! In today’s age of technology, there is something so special about getting a love letter. You really can’t go wrong with this. And if writing a long letter isn’t your thing, take a shot at poetry. It’s just as romantic. And, be sure to deliver the letter creatively to add to the romance.

5. Spa at Home
Have you ever thought about replicating the spa experience in the comfort of your home? Candles, soothing music, and massage oil can get you started, but I would also add some wine, and a few unexpected spa treatments, like a pedicure. This is a great gift for him or her.

6. Dinner and Dancing
Cook your honey a special dinner. And after you enjoy it, just dance the night away. And be sure to dance the night away to a few old school tunes because the feelings brought on by those songs just can be brought on by today’s music.

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. Research shows it has many health benefits, such as lowering blood sugar levels.
