Eggs and Cholesterol - How Many Eggs Can You Safely Eat? Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. Just imagine… a whole egg contains all the nutrients needed to turn a single cell into an entire baby chicken. However, eggs have gotten a bad reputation because the yolks are high in cholesterol. In fact, a single medium sized egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol, which is 62% of the recommended daily intake. People believed that if you ate cholesterol, that it would raise cholesterol in the blood and contribute to heart disease. But it turns out that it isn’t that simple. Let me explain how that works… How Your Body Regulates Cholesterol Levels Cholesterol is often seen as a negative word. When we hear it, we automatically start thinking of medication, heart attacks and early death. But the truth is that cholesterol is a very important part of the body. It is also used to make steroid hormones like testosterone, estrogen and cortisol. Without cholesterol, we wouldn’t even exist. Bottom Line: The liver produces large amounts of cholesterol.

10 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight on Paleo - Paleo Plan Tell me if this sounds familiar. You heard about Paleo from someone who lost weight effortlessly on Paleo. They told you Paleo was amazing, the food tasted great, you could eat bacon (omg!), and that they ate as much food as they wanted and they just…. LOST WEIGHT! So you decided to try it for yourself, and in the first week you lost 7 pounds… 7 freaking pounds. You figured you were on an easy peasy downhill ride to your optimal size. What the? Is this you? I’ve talked to a lot of Paleo people, and I’ve learned a lot from them (and myself) over the years about failing to lose fat, even on Paleo. A lot of this info is being borrowed from another similar post I wrote on this topic here. 1. I just had a conversation with my beautiful cousin, Meg about calories. I’ve had the same thing happen over and over in my own life. Then I usually end up going to and log what I eat for a few days to see the damage. So. 2. 3. I sleep with ear plugs in every night. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

How to Use Key Rings, Washers & Lace to Make Chic Accessories The bracelet is back. We're not sure that it went anywhere, but we've been seeing so many fun and creative takes on friendship bracelets, bangles, wrap bracelets, and more that we've decided that this summer is officially a DIY bracelet renaissance. Materials: - small washers - small key rings - lace trim or ribbon - scissors - tape The materials for this one couldn't be simpler. For this bracelet, we'll use 5 washers and about 12 inches of lace trim. Use tape to create a needle or shoelace end on one end of your trim. Now, pull your ribbon up over the second washer and weave it through the first washer. Pull it all the way through, and then weave back through your second washer. To fasten, simply tie an adorable bow around your wrist. Done! For the second bracelet, we used two pieces of lace trim and some extra small key rings leftover from our DIY Camera Strap. Use the tape to attach the two pieces of trim together, and repeat the steps above.

Scotland and rUK both successor states after independence says academic Sunday, 20 January 2013 11:42 By Bob Duncan A leading American professor of international law has said that Scotland and the remainder of the UK (rUK) will be treated as "co-equal successor states" in the event of independence. Speaking on BBC Radio Scotland, Professor David Scheffer suggested that both would be treated equally by the European Union in the event of a Yes vote in the independence referendum and that a "pathway" would be constructed to ensure continued membership of both with minimal upheaval. Professor Scheffer (pictured), who is a former Special Advisor to Madeleine Albright at the United Nations and the first US Ambassador-at-large for War Crimes Issues during Bill Clinton's second term in office, now lectures at North Western University School of Law. Speaking on Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme on Saturday he said that Scotland's transition into an independent member of the EU should be clear.

Scottish Independence: a Question of International Law or of the EU’s “New Legal Order”? (Part I) Monday, 11 February, may prove to be a decisive day in Holyrood’s quest for independence. David Cameron presented a prelude of sorts on Sunday evening, issuing a statement which proclaimed: “Britain works well. Why break it?” The Scottish Government responded quickly by releasing, first thing on Monday morning, a report prepared by the Fiscal Commission Working Group attesting to the economic viability of an independent Scotland. However, given the UK’s recurring refrain and the tone of their Report on “Devolution and the Implications of Scottish Independence”, released later that day, the Working Group’s recommendations and proposal to keep the pound sounded a discordant note. Crawford and Boyle’s legal opinion, “Referendum on the Independence of Scotland – International Law Aspects”, was published in annex to the Report. This is, in my view, the correct approach. Crawford and Boyle present three possible legal outcomes of Scottish independence: 1. 2. 3.

Chicken Cacciatore (Hunter Style Chicken) Recipe 1 Brown the chicken: Rinse chicken and pat dry. Season the chicken pieces on all sides with salt. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Working in batches so that you don't crowd the pan, place the chicken pieces skin side down in the pan. Remove chicken to a bowl, set aside. 2 Sauté the onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, garlic: Add the sliced onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms to the pan. Cook until the onions are translucent, and the mushrooms have given up most of their moisture, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic to the pan and cook a minute more. 3 Deglaze pan with wine, add tomatoes, spices: Add the wine and scrape up any browned bits at the bottom of the pan. Stir in the pepper, thyme, oregano, and about a teaspoon of salt. 4 Add chicken back to pan, partially cover, cook until tender: Place the chicken pieces on top of the tomatoes and onions, skin side up. Cook the chicken on a low simmer, turning and basting from time to time.

Do Short Men Stand A Chance? Heidi Muller Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Page 1 of 3 You were always the small guy of the bunch. However, just because your trousers are shorter and you need to look up to most of those around you, doesn't mean that you should also have short expectations when it comes to dating and life. What it means to be short Besides, what do we mean by short? Even the heights of the "shorter" Ryan Seacrest, Manny Pacquiao, Mark Ronson, and Kanye West have nothing to do with their power or presence. Does size matter to women? We rounded up a group of girlfriends in order to determine if short men stand a chance; you may or may not be surprised with the results. While Janine said: "As long as a man has a personality, his height doesn't matter," Stacey stated that "It's what a man does with his height that really counts." Let's not be naive, though. You've surely heard this before, but women look for the following in a man: Do short men stand a chance with women and in life?
