From my personal experience, I know that loose skin can be stubborn and hard to remove using traditional methods. For example, even though I lowered my body fat percentage and increased my lean muscle mass…

Our hormones have the final say for fat burning. My optimal solution was to fix my hormonal issues and use fat as fuel for sustainable weight management.

As a person struggling with weight management issues for decades, I want to share the most critical unlearning and relearning activity in my fitness and health improvement journey.

Despite many excessive workouts, mainly in cardio form and substantial calorie-cutting, I suffered a lot and miserably failed.

Didn’t they work?

This article is not a theoretical piece and not sugar-coated even though it has an inspirational and motivational aspect. I am not here to preach and repeat dull advice with nitty-gritty points. …

Working on autonomous systems developing immunity methods in artificial intelligence technology, I am also interested in self-healing mechanisms for the human body and the brain as a sensible transhumanist. I have strong interest in immunotherapy that is growing and evolving rapidly. …

I believe that most writers are also avid readers. However, I also believe that anyone who enjoys reading can also become a writer. This is because writing and reading go hand in hand. They are inseparable.

Writing looks like a daunting task to some readers. Some even see it as a pie in the sky occupation. However, I believe many would benefit from writing regardless of compensation.

I know innumerable writers on this platform who write for the sheer joy of it, whether they simply feel empowered or enjoy when they find out that something they wrote helped another person…

Why Vitamin D

I agree that we don’t have to supplement many vitamins as most of them are abundant in our food. However, a few critical vitamins play an essential role in our health, fitness, and well-being. Their deficiency matters. Vitamin D is one of them. It is unique and very different from other vitamins.

Even though it is called a vitamin, vitamin D is a steroid hormone. It is created from cholesterol when our skin is exposed to the sun.
