5 Addictive Foods That Make You Gain Weight
Not sure about which of the many food items will qualify as addictive foods? When it comes to losing weight, people are always eager to know what ought to be done. But they are oblivious that what they put in their mouth is the most important thing to pay attention to, regardless if it is a fat burning food or weight gain food. It is important to be careful of what we put in our mouth unconsciously. This is because majority of what we consume are calories based.

Chocolates: they are high in fat and added sugar and rank high on the list of addictive foods. The more you consume chocolates, the more your body craves for more. Chocolates are very easy and sometimes filling to snack on, and very easy to gain weight as well. Do you know that a bar of chocolate (45) grams contains about 240 calories with 25 grams of sugar?
Soft drinks: oh yes! Our daily sweetened soft drink is equivalent to our daily weight gain. It is very easy to take a bottle of soft drink to quench our thirst, but hard to substitute a bottle of soft drink for water. Most soft drinks have high concentration of sugar and contain empty nutrients. Study shows that people who consume soft drinks are prone to weight gain than those that don’t. Also, there is also an increase in type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Cookies and doughnuts: who doesn’t like a yummy bite of cookies and doughnuts? They can be extremely delicious and yummy, but they are high in refined flour and added sugar.

Ice – cream: if you a fan of ice- cream, I am sorry to bust your bust your bubble, it is totally one of the addictive foods. Ice – cream bought out there are high in sugar content and a lot of people eat it as part of a meal on a daily basis. This can even add a lot of calories to meal ate already.

3 Hygiene Hacks You Should Know
Good hygiene is a critical part of staying healthy, so it’s important to learn how to keep your home clean.
One tip is to do chores and cleaning on a daily basis rather than wait for an accumulation of dirt and clutter in the house. Cleaning hard surfaces like door handles, counters and toilets regularly with disinfectant solutions can help prevent the spread of germs that cause illness.
Vacuuming carpets or mopping floors weekly can also eliminate dust, pet dander and other harmful particles from your living environment. By following these simple tips, you should be able to improve the hygiene inside your home.
1. Regular vacuuming will not only reduce dirt but will remove dust mites which are known to contribute towards allergies amongst family members. Immediate washing up after meals should be done as soon as possible so food doesn’t spoil on plates and cutlery; remember that germs thrive when there’s moisture around too.
2. Ensure all surfaces in the kitchen are thoroughly cleaned every day with a suitable antibacterial solution; this will also require disinfecting door handles and other regularly touched areas two or more times a week.
3. Vacuum and dust twice a week; deep-clean carpets every six months; wash curtains regularly, about once a month; mop floors every day, especially in the kitchen where bacteria can build up quickly; use natural cleaners such as baking soda or vinegar instead of chemicals whenever possible, wipe surfaces with disinfectant wipes nightly to help kill germs; declutter often to reduce places for dirt and grime to hide.
