Fasting And Losing Weight

Restricting one’s food intake forces the body to start burning stored fat, but complete fasting is not recommended by Scientists, who advise on intermittent fasting, where only 500 to 800 calories are consumed for 2 days in a week, with the rest of the days on a normal diet.

Fasting for longer periods is not recommended without medical supervision.

Anxiety Due To Climate Change

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines Eco-Anxiety as a mental health issue due to climate change. This and other existential threats are processed in the anterior cingulate cortex(ACC), a region of our brain that is also responsible for our behaviour.

Eco-Anxiety cannot be treated as it is not a specific mental health problem (yet), and we need to calm our mind by taking affirmative action. We need to concentrate on what can be controlled, taking step-by-step action, no matter how small it is, like recycling or buying second-hand, to minimize our environmental impact on the planet.

Steps To Overcome Eco-Anxiety
  • Restrict our news consumption.
  • Spend more time with nature
  • Read a diverse range of material.
  • Spend time with friends and loved ones.
  • Be aware of the effects of constant worry on your health.
  • Eat healthily.
  • Sleep well.
  • Get adequate exercise.

Adding flavour molecules

The solvents used to obtain decaf coffee also remove some of the flavour molecules. These are then added back.

One way is to perform a first extraction with water, then shake up the water with a small volume of methylene chloride, or pass it through a charcoal filter. Both processes selectively remove the caffeine from the water but leave most of the flavour molecules.
