Thanksgiving is a time when we spend time with our family eating turkey and ham with all the fixings. This holiday is notorious for excessive weight gain, cooler temperatures, and, of course, football. Many NFL teams play on this holiday because of the gain of viewership, since most people have the day off from work. Rival teams play to be crowned the winner while die-hard fans are screaming at their screens with excitement, anger, or a little bit of both. The first ever championship game on Turkey Day was between Yale University and Princeton in 1876, though college football is now held the day after on Black Friday. Spending time with your family watching football can create many memories, but getting out here and playing football with your family can determine whose house dinner will be at for next year!

It’s time to throw around the pigskin this Thanksgiving! What are some ways this fitness trend can provide health benefits?

Health Tips: Where Intermittent Fasting Goes Wrong

Nowadays, many fitness experts recommend ‘intermittent fasting’ as a star-spangled technique for burning your calories without having to go to the gym. What is intermittent fasting, you ask? It is not a diet per se, but more like a dieting pattern. You choose to consume food during a particular window of the day only, while staying hungry for the rest of it. This feasting-fasting mode allows you to torch excess fat (as the body’s fuel-source shifts from glucose to ketones), optimize your immune system, preserve muscle mass, and improve gut health, etc.

Though you might have seen multiple celebrities like the Kardashian clan adopting intermittent fasting, it’s not mandatory that you’ll have similar results. Each body is unique and gives off a different response to any fitness regime.

Coming back to the topic at hand, there are multiple downfalls to intermittent fasting if it’s not done right. You could be starving yourself and not know it, which is the more dangerous outcome. So, do watch out for the following obstacles when you begin your diet so that you can get the best out of it instead of the worst.

A recent health trend has been on the rise in 2019 in the form of tampon alternatives. You don’t need to limit yourself to only tampons. Tampons can hurt, depending on the brand, and they are packed with chemicals like rayon and bleached wood fibers that shouldn’t be anywhere near our bodies. You can find 100% cotton tampons but they won’t help you with the sustainability aspect of searching for tampon alternatives if that’s why you want something different for your monthly flow. Let’s forget about sleeping with a tampon in—that’s a big no-no because the average person gets 7 to 9 hours of sleep, and therefore going way past the recommended time it’s safe to leave a tampon in. You should use a pad instead. Pads aren’t any better either—it can feel like you’re walking around with a stinky diaper all day. Exploring tampon alternatives can not only help you toward sustainability but can also help ease the cost and discomfort of having your period. You’re also reducing the risk of potential illness with our health tips.

Okay, Ladies—let’s talk periods. Check out this new health trend for tampon alternatives!
