Natural sugar can be found in most nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables, and if you're looking for added sugar, it goes by 61 different names and it's quite hard to memorize them all.
The two most common sources for processed food sugars are sugarcane and sugar beets, but the cheapest to produce is corn syrup. Due to the desire for sweet-tasting food, there is now an overproduction of corn to satisfy the need for cheap sweets.
Margarine is marketed as a healthier alternative to butter, which is not true. It may seem like butter but is mainly manufactured using vegetable oils, salt, emulsifiers and trans-fats. Most of it isn’t healthy.
Butter, on the other hand, is made from milk, which is a topic of a lot of health debates but has been used without any problem for thousands of years. It is a good source of vitamins and calcium while being high in fats.
Many people continue to practice the same diet fad or routine to lose weight even after the effort is proven to be ineffective. This mentality of dieters is called the False Hope Syndrome and happens due to:
Okinawa, an island in southern Japan is known for the longevity of its population and has an extremely low rate of heart disease issues. The elderly are active and happy in the 80s and 90s.

Feeling and identifying the signs of job burnout is a powerful way to arm yourself with the strategies and resources needed to prevent it from bringing you down. So if it’s time to sit down with your manager or HR team, set up that meeting.
Explain that working longer hours is not leading to your most productive and happiest self. Most companies rather make a small adjustment than having to hire somebody else.
Look at your full day to identify the causes of insomnia, not just the hours before you go to bed.
For example, setting too many meetings or not permitting yourself to take a break can leave you too wound up to fall asleep later at night. Instead, schedule your most intense work in the morning, and do more mundane tasks in the afternoon.
