Best Foods to Eat while You are Trying to Build Muscles

Muscle building is one of the most popular habits people form nowadays and this is truly one of the best ones. It is always good to see a fairly bulked body with beautiful cuts than a lean and thin person. There are a lot of ways you can gain muscles – like doing the right exercise, hitting the gym with intense workout sessions, using anabolic steroids and eating the right food. Although you might think that steroids are a good option, it is wise to go for the right food and the right exercise plan.

Here is a list of some of the best foods you can eat while you are trying to bulk up and look amazing—

  • Red meat – Red meat is one of the most important foods you must include in your meal. It is an amazing source of protein along with the right amount of fats and other important nutrients. Add lean beef and other sources of red meat on your daily diet.
  • Eggs – Eggs have a lot of protein and a great source of good cholesterol. You must eat at least 5-6 whole eggs daily in order to maintain your bulking cycle. A lot of people tend to ignore the habit of eating eggs thinking they are rich in fat and cholesterol but that is where they go wrong. Eggs have good cholesterol and healthy fats which are important for your body.
  • Oats – I know oats are the most boring foods but they are the healthiest foods of all. Oats have a lot of fiber, vitamin, protein and they are the best foods when you want to lose fats and boost your metabolism. There are a lot of complex carbohydrates in oats which helps you in your bulking and cutting cycle.
  • Dairy Products – When you are trying to lose weight, you should avoid dairy products; but during your bulking cycle, it is one o the most important foods. Add the right amount of cottage cheese, milk and other dairy products on your diet.
Forward or Rear Facing Pushchair or Pram? What is the Best Direction for Baby Stroller/Buggy Orientation?

Forward or Rear Facing Pushchair or Pram? What is the Best Direction for Baby Stroller/Buggy Orientation?

Pushchairs are generally used for babies, toddlers and young children up to the age of three and occasionally four years old. The overwhelming majority of baby transportation carriages available today are the stroller (U.S.) or buggy/ pushchair (U.K.) which place the child facing the direction of travel. This is a relatively new trend; only a couple of decades ago children were generally pushed in an old style pram, in which the baby would look at the person pushing, usually its parent.

Many parenting books have suggested that the rear-facing pram is better for the baby because of the opportunity for interaction with the parent; until recently, however, there was no specific research into this. “‘What’s life in a baby buggy like?’ The impact of buggy orientation on parent-infant interaction and infant stress” by Dr Suzanne Zeedyk was ground breaking being the first investigation by psychologists into children’s experience of pushchairs, as described by its subtitle.

The research was conducted throughout the U.K. in two parts. First, 2722 parent-child pairs were observed on High Streets in 54 towns, the social interactions were systematically documented and analysed. Second, 20 mother-infant pairs were closely monitored examining interactions and indicators of stress.

The research results were inline with existing knowledge. The report concludes that children benefit from facing and interacting with the person pushing them (usually the parent); that children facing forward may be emotionally impoverished and isolated.

Why are Forward Facing Strollers Prevalent?

  • Economical; they are generally, but not always, the     cheapest models

  • Compact; suitable for storage in small apartments and     car boots

  • Light weight; suitable for lifting into the car

  • Fashion; some models are marketed as extremely stylish     or funky

  • Stimulating; an idea that children will enjoy or     benefit from viewing the world

Are Forward Facing or Rear Facing Buggies Beneficial?

Infants facing forwards were twice as likely to be asleep, which contradicts any notion that children are enjoying looking at the world around them. The Zeedyk tentatively suggests sleeping may be an indication of stress. The children facing the parent are more likely to be awake, enjoying stimulation and experience quantitively more interaction with the adult. Furthermore, the report explains that children need to see the adult’s face to help understand the world around them.

The research was published by Talk to Your Baby, a campaign run by the National Literacy Trust which is based on the assumption that talking to young children will enhance their lives by improving their communication skills. Brain’s develop at the greatest rate during the first three years of human life; it is, therefore, suggested that people benefit greatly from interacting during infancy with adults
