    Does weather affect metabolism at all? 

    http://caloriecount.about.com/different-calorie-requirements-winter-q21374

    Do I need more (or fewer) calories in the winter
    compared to what I ate in the warmer months?  Does weather affect
    metabolism at all?

    Answer

    Your calorie requirements do not change with the
    seasons.  Shivering does increase the calories you burn actually spent
    shivering, but as long as you have a source of heat and clothing to keep
    body temperature normal, you will not burn extra calories to generate
    heat.  When people spend time outdoors in very cold weather, any extra
    calories they may burn keeping warm are offset by the reduction of
    calories burned in activity, which is usually hampered by heavy
    clothing.

    Good night’s sleep helps in avoiding obesity 

    Wikipedia reports:

    Scientists have uncovered an inverse relationship between the hours of
    sleep and blood plasma concentrations of ghrelin; as the hours of sleep
    increase, ghrelin concentrations were considerably lower, thereby
    potentially reducing appetite and avoiding potential obesity.

      the best solution for obesity is none other than Exercise and Proper diet. i would try to avoid slimming pills or fat burning food supplements

    Mother diary’s probiotic milk 

    Well after a year of its launch, Mother Diary’s probiotic milk has finally made it to the shop in my apartment complex.

    A bottle sells at Rs.10, is 100 ml and is based on the symbiotic combination of LA-5 and BB-12 which Yoplait has done long ago. Though presence of BB-12 is written on the bottle itself, curiously, Mother Diary’s own website does not mention BB-12.

    The website also only mentions “billions of bacteria” without exactly specifying “how many billions of what” in each serving.

    Each serving (of Mango flavour) is loaded with 12.3 grams of sugar for 100 ml and some fruit pulp, but it sure doesnt taste as “addictive” as Yakult. The date of packaging is printed on the cap of each bottle and you will need to add 21 days to determine whether or not you can consume it.

    I clearly felt as if Rs. 10 bought more with Mother Dairy than with Yakult- there is 50% more milk per bottle!

    Will Smith, a role model to look up to 

    “I will NOT be outworked. Period… You might have more talent than me,
    you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be
    all of those things. You got it on me in nine categories. But if we get
    on the treadmill together, there’s two things:  Either you’re getting
    off first, or I’m gonna die. It’s really that simple.”

    -Will Smith, on his work ethic

    On probiotic drinks 

    I have been using Probiotic products for about a year now. I started with Yakult, but later went on to try several other brands. The four probiotic drinks that I’ve had extensively are:

    1. Yakult with Lactobacillus casei Shirota
    2. Mother Dairy Probiotic Dahi with Bifidobacterium BB-12®
    3. Danon Danimals with L Bulgaricus, S Thermophilus and Lactobacilus GG
    4. Danon Danactive with L Bulgaricus, S Thermophilus and L Casei Immunitas

    I can say that having probiotic drinks has helped my digestive system and Yakult seems to be the best for me. I’d like to know from others about other brands and strains and which cultures seemed to have benefitted others.

      BEING A SUBJECT MATTER SPECIALIST IN FERMENTED /PROBIOTIC DAIRY PRODUCTS , I TASTED YAKULT AND LIKED IT VERY MUCH IN ALL ASPECTS. I ALSO RECOMMEND TO OTHERS TO TAKE YAKULT AND KEEP YOURSELF FIT.AS IT IS KNOWN THAT A CUP OF FERMENTED MILK A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY.
