Exercising and eating right is the key to staying in shape. however, too much strenuous activity and unhealthy eating habits in a short amount of time is harmful to the body. Crash dieting is a popular way for college students preparing for warmer temperatures.
Mandy Wray, a nutrition consultant, says researchers are seeing an increase in eating and exercise disorders. according to Wray, exercise bulimia is a new disorder that affects college students.
“People are exercising to the point of exercising every calorie, they intake in excess,” said Wray, a doctoral student in the University of Oklahoma’s Health and Exercise Science Department.
when people push their bodies to these limits, it’s often more harmful in the end. People see quick results with crash dieting, but the pounds they lose often resurface once they revert to normal eating habits. This yo-yo diet can be harmful to the body in the long run. Common side effects include dehydration and muscle glycogen depletion, which is the way our body stores energy.
“We see that yo-yo dieting effect, where people lose a lot of weight and then they gain it right back. Then they get back on this crash diet and they lose it all again. so, that can start to build up to become a disorder,” Wray said.
Societal pressures are making disorders like exercise bulimia, bulimia and anorexia popular. Research conducted by the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and associated Disorders found that 8 million Americans are suffering from an eating disorder; of that number, only 10 percent are receiving treatment.
OU senior, Sierra Wald, is making a trip to Destin, Florida for spring break. she says she has watched her friends push their bodies to extremes to be thin.
“One of my friends did an oatmeal diet. she made it up. she just ate oatmeal for the whole week,” Wald said.
Wray advises that health and fitness is a progression and it is important to start slow.
“You need to develop a plan and develop some long-term goals, as well as some short-term goals and get yourself in a regiment,” Wray said.

You’d be amazed at how social networking can affect your healthy eating plan. A healthy eating plan is not about a strict diet, depriving yourself of the foods you love. It’s about feeling great, having more energy, getting that essential support from communities, all of which can be achieved by social networking.
Learn How to Eat
Healthy eating begins with learning how to eat, which can defend you against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and depression, and can boost your energy, sharpen your memory and stabilize your mood. You can find people on health related social networking sites discussing a range of healthy food choices and you can learn how to plan ahead to create and maintain a satisfying, healthy diet. Such topics discussed include healthy eating tips.
- Eating with others has many social and emotional benefits than eating in front of the TV or computer.
- Take time to chew your food slowly and enjoy mealtimes.
- Ask yourself if you are really hungry or actually really thirsty. have a glass of water to see whether you are only thirsty instead of hungry. during a meal, stop eating before you feel full.
- Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, be sure to eat breakfast, and eat smaller meals throughout the day.
Drink More Water
People found on health related social networking sites advise others to drink more water. Water helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many people go through life dehydrated, causing tiredness, low energy, and headaches. It’s common to mistake thirst for hunger, so staying well hydrated leads to a healthier lifestyle.
What About Exercise?
When it comes to preventing, controlling, or reversing diabetes, consider exercising. Regular exercise maintains your weight and can improve your insulin sensitivity. One of the easiest moderate-intensity activities is walking for 30 minutes five or more times a week, swimming or riding a bike. You can discuss with others on social networking sites your exercise achievements and compare results.
Eat In Moderation
The most common advice seen on social networking sites is not to deprive yourself of the foods you love, but eat them in moderation. Try not to think of certain foods as off-limits. When you ban certain foods or food groups, it is natural to want those foods more, and then feel like a failure if you give in to temptation. think smaller portions. if you are drawn towards sweet, salty, or unhealthy foods, start by reducing portion sizes and not eating them as often. You may find that you are craving them less or thinking of them as only occasional indulgences.
Eat The Rainbow
Eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Colorful and deeply colored fruits and vegetables contain higher concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and different colors provide different benefits.
- Greens, such as broccoli, and Chinese cabbage are just a few of the options, all packed with calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, zinc, and vitamins A, C, E, and K.
- Sweet vegetables, such as corn, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, yams, onions, and squash
- Fruit such as berries, apples, oranges and mangos, are satisfying way to fill up on fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Healthy Carb Options
Healthy carbs are digested slowly, helping you feel fuller for longer, while keeping your blood sugar and insulin levels stable. Healthy carbs include whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables.
Unhealthy carbs digest quickly and cause spikes in blood sugar levels and energy. these include white flour, refined sugar, and white rice that have been stripped of all bran, fiber, and nutrients. Blogs found on social networking sites document peoples experience on carb intake.
Eat Healthy Fats
Eating healthy fat nourish your brain, heart, hair, skin, and nails. Foods rich in certain omega-3 fats can reduce cardiovascular disease, improve your mood, and help prevent dementia. Unhealthy fats like saturated fats and trans fats should be reduced or eliminated from your diet. there are various healthy fats to consider and remain in your diet, and these include:
▪ Monounsaturated fats that are derived from plant oils like canola oil, peanut oil, and olive oil, as well as avocados, nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans, and seeds such as pumpkin, sesame.
▪ Polyunsaturated fats, including Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, found in fatty fish such as salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovies and sardines oil supplements. other sources of polyunsaturated fats are unheated sunflower oil, corn oil, soybean oil, flaxseed oil, and walnuts.
Guidelines to Protein
Protein aids to the building blocks of our body that provides growth and energy, while maintaining cells, tissues, and organs. A lack of protein can slow growth, reduce muscle mass, lower immunity, and weaken the heart and respiratory system. The different types of protein include beans such as black beans and lentils, nuts such as almonds and walnuts, and soy products such as tofu and soy milk.
Calcium Equals Healthy Bones
Calcium-rich foods are one of the key nutrients that your body needs in order to stay strong and healthy. The recommended calcium levels are 1000 mg per day, 1200 mg if you are over 50 years old. good sources of calcium-rich foods include dairy products such as milk and cheese, vegetables such as leafy greens and celery, and beans such as black beans and kidney beans.

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman has been arrested and is being charged with second-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.
Special prosecutor Angela Corey announced the charge at a news conference Wednesday, seven weeks after the homicide took place.
Trayvon Martin’s parents, civil rights leaders and other people have portrayed the case as racially charged, saying Zimmerman would have been arrested immediately had he been black and the victim white. Martin was black.
The case has raised a multitude of questions, some of which remain unanswered.
Q: WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG FOR ZIMMERMAN TO BE ARRESTED?
A: Special prosecutor Angela Corey says that probable cause had to be determined before authorities could arrest Zimmerman. She said there was only a slight delay, when she took it over from the previous prosecutor, who recused himself from the case.
Zimmerman told police he acted in self-defense after Martin pursued and attacked him. Florida is among 21 states with a “stand your ground law,” which gives people wide latitude to use deadly force rather than retreat during a fight. the Florida law lets police on the scene decide whether they believe the self-defense claim.
In many cases, the officers make an arrest and leave it to the courts to work out whether the deadly force is justified. In this case, however, police have said they are confident they did the right thing by not charging Zimmerman.
Q: ON WHAT EVIDENCE IS THE PROSECUTOR BASING THE CHARGE OF SECOND-DEGREE MURDER?
A: Corey did not disclose how she arrived at the charge, saying that was information to be revealed in court.
A: Zimmerman will appear in court within 24 hours, Corey said.
Q: DOES ZIMMERMAN HAVE LEGAL COUNSEL?
A: yes, Mark O’Mara of Orlando, who became Zimmerman’s new attorney after his former lawyers announced Tuesday that they were dropping the case. They said they couldn’t keep representing Zimmerman because he had stopped communicating with them.
A: Martin, 17, was shot and killed by a single gunshot wound to the chest Feb. 26 during a confrontation with Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer in a gated community of townhomes in Sanford, Fla., about 20 miles northeast of Orlando.
Zimmerman was driving through the neighborhood when he spotted Martin, who was unarmed and walking to the home of his father’s fiancee. She lived in the same gated community as Zimmerman.
Martin was returning from a trip to the convenience store with an iced tea and a bag of Skittles. It was raining, and Martin was walking with the hood of his sweatshirt pulled over his head. He talked to his girlfriend on a cellphone moments before the shooting, according to Martin’s family’s attorney.

Kevin Ray was at a crossroads.
For three summers, he’d worked with Eighth Day Sound out of Cleveland, touring the U.S. and Europe with national recording acts such as Tool and Whitney Houston, making sure their live sound was just right.
But now, on the heels of his 2009 graduation from Ball State with a degree in music, the Upper Arlington native was starting to think more about his own sound.
As a guitarist and songwriter, Ray had played around town a bit with his longtime friend from Arlington, drummer Sean Waugaman. They’d formed their first band together as peach-fuzzed adolescents at Jones Middle School. Then, as older teens, they’d started to branch out, playing a few university-area frat houses and small clubs as the Bourbon Kings, “a pretty bad cover band,” Ray said.
It was at his college graduation party, however, that Ray started to realize just what might be possible. there, he was reunited with a childhood friend, Nick Petricca, whose Cincinnati band—Walk the Moon—was starting to generate buzz.
“I hadn’t seen him in like 15 years,” Ray said, but the two quickly realized they were kindred spirits. Petricca, too, had recently graduated with a music degree from Kenyon College.
“He said, ‘Hey, you should come down and see my band.’”
Ray took him up on the offer, and brought Waugaman with him. “We sat in with them a few times,” Ray said. “It was fun.”
But work called again, and Ray was off to help other bands fine-tune their sound. making his own music, however, was starting to occupy more of his attention.
“Kevin’s mother and I went to pick him up at the airport,” recalled Frank Ray, Kevin’s dad. “He’d been at Lollapalooza doing sound for Tool (in August 2009). On the way home, I remember him saying, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore.’”
Petricca’s band had already released a couple of independently produced EPs, and as 2009 spilled into 2010, Ray and Waugaman were beginning to become more frequent Cincinnati visitors and onstage guests.
Never in his wildest dreams did Kevin Ray think that in just two short years, he’d play at Lollapalooza with his friends Petricca and Waugaman as Walk the Moon, one of the hottest new bands in the country.
“My head was spinning,” said Ray.
Though they weren’t really aware of it, the lives of Kevin Ray and Nick Petricca seemed to unfold on parallel tracks.
Their mothers—both named Pat—had grown up as best friends in St. Louis. Kevin’s mom eventually married Frank Ray and moved to Ohio, continuing to keep in touch with her friend Patty—who had married Joe Petricca—back in St. Louis.
In 1986, Pat Ray gave birth to a son, Kevin. Three months later, Patty Petricca gave birth to a son of her own, Nicholas.
The Rays visited the Petriccas to celebrate the occasion. but while the mothers kept in touch via mail and phone calls, the boys only knew of each other as acquaintances. until music brought them back together.
After learning of their shared love of music in 2009, the friendship between Petricca and Ray grew quickly. Petricca’s band—named after the Police song “Walking on the Moon”—was already experiencing its share of early success. In 2008, it was the only North American band selected to play City Showcase in London. Petricca also had made some inroads with small but influential clubs in New York City, and the band was starting get some attention on blogs and social media. Industry insiders were beginning to notice.
The video, filmed at the historic Mockbee in the Over the Rhine region of Cincinnati, was essentially one continuous shot of Petricca walking through the building, passing exotic-looking folks lining the hallways, breaking out in dance at times, all the while wearing fluorescent stripes of body paint on their faces, a la the Lost Boys from the movie Hook.
Petricca had invited his newfound friends from Upper Arlington down for the video shoot.
The face paint stuck after the band began to notice fans striping their faces at shows following the video’s release. Ever since, it’s become a Walk the Moon trademark.
“It’s become a great way to get in touch with our fans,” Ray said. “They come to the show, have a good time and wake up in the morning—maybe there’s a little face paint on their pillow. it reminds them of the fun they had.”
Brian Penick, owner of a small Cincinnati management company, did the publicity for I want! I want!
“Walk the Moon has always been Nick’s baby. but I don’t think he ever considered it a viable project until he found Kevin and Sean—his rhythm section,” said Penick. “Before that, it was kind of Nick’s side and there were so many members in and out.”
In the months following the album’s release, life changed dramatically for Walk the Moon. Petricca had scheduled a short 12-stop tour for January 2011 in support of I want! I want! by the sixth stop, according to Penick, word was out.
“They played Pianos on Jan. 24,” he said, referring to a famed Manhattan venue. “It’s a tiny room on the Lower East Side. it holds maybe 100 people. but it’s a hot spot. and on that night, probably three-quarters of the crowd were industry people.”
“Once the industry folks realized they were all in the same room together, they had what we call in the industry a freakout. ‘If they’re here, and they’re interested, we need to move on this.’”
A week later, during a tour stop at Butler University, a major management company was pursuing them. Mick Management handles acts such as John Mayer, Ray Lamontagne, Sarah McLachlan and Justin Townes Earle. In fact, the company owner had Mayer call the band one night, just to talk up Mick Management.
Under Mick Management’s care, things progressed even faster, ignited by a profile slot at the influential South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, in March, which led quickly to an appearance on the late-night television show last Call With Carson Daly.
In June, the band played the massive Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee, preceded by its inclusion in a Spin magazine article titled “25 Must-Hear Artists at Bonnaroo.”
Lesley James’s introduction to Walk the Moon occurred at that 2011 Lollapalooza show in Chicago.
“I’d heard their name but didn’t know anything about them,” said James, CD101’s program director. “They were the first band on the Main Stage on Saturday, so they came on around noon. what I remember is they covered David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance.” it was such an energetic show, so much fun.”
She quickly booked them for the CD101 Day show at the Newport the following November, opening for Fitz and the Tantrums. “As soon as we announced, we got calls to start spinning “Anna Sun” (the single from their independently released 2010 album I want! I want!),” said James. “I thought, ‘Wow. People already know all about this band.’”
Their popularity has continued to soar. MTV named them one of its “Bands We like,” and Esquire magazine named “Anna Sun” “our official song of the summer” in its big music issue of 2011.
Columbus, is catching on, too, thanks in part to CD101’s heavy rotation of “Anna Sun.”
The band’s local popularity was evident in February, when Walk the Moon returned to Columbus just three months after its CD101 show at the Newport. it was touring as an opener for a Young the Giant show originally scheduled to be held back at the Newport, but the show sold out so quickly that it was moved to the larger Lifestyle Communities Pavilion, which sold out as well.
They return again Saturday to the LC for another CD101 show with the Naked and Famous, as well as the Features and Reptar. The show was recently moved from the inside space to the outside amphitheater.
Tonight the band makes its debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and summer appearances are allegedly in the works for The Late Show With David Letterman and Conan O’Brien’s TBS show, as well as a possible fall appearance rumored for Saturday Night Live.
The band is also putting finishing touches on a second full-length record that’s scheduled to be released in June.
“It’s hard to believe,” said Ray. “Two years ago, we were more worried about finals than anything else. We’ve all spent years in and out of bands, trying to get someone to notice. Suddenly, now we have this force behind us—a management team, booking agents, lawyers.”
“It really did kind of explode, but so far, it’s been a pleasure. it doesn’t feel like work. We were just doing what everybody else is doing on their way to doing this.”

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Social-media policies aren’t just for big companies. Owners of small- and medium-sized firms should think about flexibility and nuance when crafting rules for their workers.
“Even with just two employees, it helps everyone be on the same page,” said Jennifer McClure, president of Unbridled Talent, a recruiting consultancy in the Cincinnati area. “Helping people understand where the lines are is very important.”
to start, employers should be clear about expectations, and avoid being too restrictive and intrusive.
“Inform your employees about the rules of the road, but don’t try to be big Brother,” said Gerald Maatman Jr., an employment lawyer at Seyfarth Shaw.
when crafting social-media policies, leaders should look to get employees on board. Companies that are open about using social media can take advantage of internal talent and human capital.
“Would you tell employees not to talk about work at a cocktail party?” said Philip Gordon, an employment lawyer with littler Mendelson. “Don’t have a policy that is honored in the breach. You want to develop rules of conduct that are justifiable and reasonable and more likely than not to be followed.”
asking for workers’ Facebook passwords crosses a line, human-resource experts say. But it could be reasonable to request that posts use a respectful tone, and don’t negatively impact the workplace. Meanwhile, the National Labor Relations Board, a federal agency focusing on workplace rights, says employers should not limit employees’ posts about their working conditions based on U.S. law that protects workers’ rights to organize.
There is cause for employers to be concerned about how workers use social media. for example, Gordon noted a food manufacturer that disciplined a worker for posting a photo in which the worker is seen picking his nose while wearing his company’s uniform by a company truck.
“The employee’s conduct would force an association of unsanitary conditions with the company,” Gordon said.
a smart policy is instructive — illustrating good social-media posts and focusing on the company’s strategy for social-media use, said Curtis Midkiff, director of social engagement for the Society for Human Resource Management, an Alexandria, Va.-based professional group.
“Focus less on penalties and more on what you would like employees to do…provide education,” Midkiff said. “Many times your employees don’t make mistakes on purpose. It’s more of a lack of understanding.”
There will always be some employees who make poor decisions about what they post. And some employers may be concerned that social media is too time-consuming. that said, tapping into social-media best practices can help small-business owners save money on marketing efforts.
“I always point out to my clients the possibility of employees posting good things about the economy, showing them examples of where employees said this is the best company I ever worked for,” McClure said.
However, businesses with workplace problems could open themselves up to negative publicity.

Jon Hamm and Mad Men co-star John Slattery appeared on Anderson (airing today) to promote season five’s premiere on Sunday night. while he was a struggling actor, Hamm agreed to take a rather special job somewhere in the San Fernando Valley.
“I was not a set designer, in fact I was a set dresser,” Hamm told the journalist. ”I guess the most politic term is sort of like Skin-emax movies.” Clarifying that it was a soft core porn, Hamm corrected Cooper, who suggested that it “soft filtered,” Hamm stopped it. ”there was nothing tasteful about it. It was depressing.”
Ah, the stories Don Draper has to tell of his climb to the top.
“So it was a couple of weeks and it was a pretty depressing way to make a couple hundred bucks a day. Yeah, it was a learning experience”
See the clip after the jump.

It’s the age-old conundrum in the NHL.
The Presidents’ Trophy, given to the team with the most regular-season points, is a nice honor, and an achievement to note. But with only seven winners having moved on to a Stanley Cup title after snaring the award, it often begs the question:
Does anyone really want it?
Well, Vancouver answered that on Saturday, as the Canucks played with a purpose, posted a 3-0 win over Edmonton in the regular-season finale, won the Presidents’ Trophy and will be the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs that begin later this week.
Vancouver, which finished with 111 points and outlasted the St. Louis Blues (109) and the new York Rangers (109) for the regular-season’s top prize, will play Los Angeles in round 1. The Kings fell to the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference as a result of a 3-2 overtime loss in San Jose on Saturday.
The Los Angeles-San Jose game also finalized the entire West playoff picture. The No. 2 seed Blues will meet the No. 7 Sharks, while the No. 3 Phoenix Coyotes take on the No. 6 Chicago Blackhawks, and the No. 4 Nashville Predators collide with the No. 5 Detroit Red Wings.
It is the Canucks’ second-straight Presidents’ Trophy. Vancouver advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals last season before losing to the Boston Bruins in seven games.
The NHL will announce the entire first-round schedule on Sunday.
A few time zones away from Vancouver, the East postseason mix was completed earlier in the night, when the Panthers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-1, securing the Southeast Division crown and the No. 3 postseason seed. They will meet the No. 6 new Jersey Devils in round 1.
It’ll be a reunion of sorts for several parties in both franchises. Florida center John Madden, who scored Saturday vs. the Hurricanes, began his career in new Jersey and won two Stanley Cup titles there. and Panthers goaltender Scott Clemmensen was once a backup to new Jersey’s Martin Brodeur.
On the other side, Devils coach Peter DeBoer held the same title with Florida just last season.
"Certainly I’ve been thinking about it, but we’re not worried about that. we know what (DeBoer) brings and what type of style they play," Florida center Stephen Weiss said. "They’re going to be tight defensively, you’re not going to have a lot of ice and we’re going to have to earn all of our chances. That’s the way it’s going to be in the playoffs throughout.
"But we’re excited."
New Jersey, which missed the postseason for the first time since 1996 last year, won six straight games to close the regular season.
"It’s one of the things we talked about. we wanted to get into the playoffs playing well. We’ve played as good of hockey as anyone else in the league," Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur said. "now, the regular season is over.
"we will try to concentrate on the things we have to do. we did a good job staying focused. You never know what’s going to happen. now, we’ll roll the dice, coming in hot."
The Rangers, who reserved the East top seed on Tuesday, will meet the No. 8 Ottawa Senators, who drifted down to the last seed after losing three in a row to close the year. new York will have home-ice advantage against any team not named Vancouver the entire postseason.
"I think we will look forward to starting the new season here. It’s always a long year and a big grind. I can speak for myself, it’s extremely satisfying being in the playoffs again. I am really looking forward to it," Senators forward Daniel Alfredsson said. "We’ll have three or four days to get ready and get our legs going a little more. I think we’ll bounce back and play some better hockey."
The other two East series feature the No. 4 Pittsburgh Penguins meeting the No. 5 Philadelphia Flyers, and the No. 2 Boston Bruins, the defending Stanley Cup champions, taking on the No. 7 Washington Capitals.
The Penguins and Flyers played twice in Pittsburgh in the regular-season’s final seven days, splitting the pair.
"I think it’s going to be a rough series. it won’t be easy. They want to win as bad as us," Flyers forward Claude Giroux said. "We’re a young team with a lot of injuries and we’ve got to make sure we go out there and outwork the Penguins. It’s going to be a tough one."
And it will include Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who played in just 22 regular-season games. Crosby scored his eighth goal of the season Saturday, in the Penguins’ 4-2 win over the Flyers.
"I expect a pretty intense series. If anything prior to this is any indication, that’s pretty fair to say," Crosby said. "those are the kind of series you want to be a part of."
The Bruins _ who raised the Stanley Cup last season after playing three seven-game series _ again won the Northeast Division this year, and seemed headed toward a date with Ottawa until the Senators slid. Instead, they get Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals, who were the No. 1 seed in the East last season.
"our number one goal is the same it’s been every year, and that’s to make the playoffs. and, I always keep saying the same thing over and over, that making the playoffs is a tough thing to do on a consistent basis," Boston coach Claude Julien said. "We’ve seen teams that have won the Cup and failed to make the playoffs the next year. We’ve seen teams win the Cup and just barely make it in.
"for us, to win our division and get another season of over 100 points, I think it’s a credit to those guys in there because it was a tough grind. we had ups and downs, but now we start that new season that everybody gets excited about, and we’ve got as good a chance as anybody else to win."

Infrastructure works are underway at a 187 acre mixed use development site in Taunton which has been purchased by Redrow South West.
The house builder is working in partnership with Persimmon at the site, which has outline planning permission for up to 900 new homes.
The first phase of building will get underway in early summer, providing 120 new homes. In additional to housing, the scheme on Bridgwater Road will provide community facilities including a local centre with 600 sq m of retail space, employment land, a primary school, public playing pitches, green spaces and play areas.
The site is situated just outside the village of Monkton Heathfield in the Somerset countryside, providing easy access to Taunton Town Centre and the M5 motorway.
Redrow is planning to build 360 new homes in total, with a mix of private and affordable dwellings.
Lee Hawker, land director for Redrow (South West), said: “we are delighted to have secured this key strategic site in Taunton, it is a beautiful part of the country and our priority is to deliver a high quality development.”
