How Not To Get Drunk Easily? 10 Tips To Help You To Drink More Without Getting Drunk.

posted on June 10th, 2011 ·


I do not encourage people drinking. However, once in a while, you may give yourself a break for a drinking sessions with friends. Here are 10 tips of not getting drunk easily:

  1. Make sure you have something in your stomach before you drink. I found out the eating big meal will improve tolerance level. Eat food high in carbohydrates and fat as they slow down the alcohol absorption rate into your body. However, please remember that eating before drinking does not stop you from getting drunk, just that it delay it from happening. I read that Russian eat a couple of boiled potatoes, drinks one or two raw eggs then drink another one teaspoons of olive/sunflower oil before they go for vodka fest. I haven’t tried this method, but I believe that it works based on the same concept – food high in carbohydrates and fat. (more…)

posted on June 6th, 2011 ·

Shin Splints: How To Prevent Them And How To Treat Them

posted on May 28th, 2011 ·

Mun’s Note:  This guest post is contributed by Kitty Holman


It was my freshman year in college. I was excited to be on the cross country team as a young freshman. My times were fast enough from my high school years to put me in the top five scorers of my Division III squad; however, there was a problem. I had developed shin splints in the month before our first race, probably due to the high mileage my legs had suffered that first season.


At some point or another, most runners deal with a very painful injury in their lower legs called shin splints. Shin splints is a general term that refers to any sort of pain in the front of the lower leg around the tibia. Since my freshman year has come and gone, I still remember the pain. The causes of the pain can vary from very mild to very severe injuries. (more…)

Unlike water, alcohol has calories.  One gram of alcohol contains 7 calories.  So, if you thought that you are safe by not drinking soda or eating burger, not really.  You will still gain weight if you drink a lot of beer, wine or hard liquor.  In fact, not only alcoholic drinks have calories, they also increase your appetite and reduce your will power.
