    One needs to examine sleep hygiene as well as adrenal imbalances.

    One needs to examine the proper pathology...
    Again its about sleep hygiene not that you actually just sleep.

    Yea what the heck is "sleep hygiene" ???
    Wash his face before bed?

    If I eat a salty meal the night before (like Chinese food) then the next morning I have bags under my eyes

  11. i havent had them but for the last 2 yrs or so, some days are worse than others, around the same time i noticed i was always tired no matter how much sleep i got..

  12. But, are you washing your face and eyes before bed? That seems to be the question!! LOL :P

  13. yuppp..

  14. in reference to sleep hygiene, i do the same routine before bed everyday, very seldom do i wake up in the middle of the night

  15. How does washing your face reduce bags under the eyes?

  16. it doesnt...sleep hygiene refers to pre sleep habits

    Here's the actual definition:

    sleep hygiene- controlling of all behavioural and environmental factors that precede sleep and may interfere with sleep

  23. so i found a few things that has helped my sleep hygiene. one, staying off the pc later in the night, two, sitting further away from the tv. i started sitting 15-20 feet from tv and noticed my over all vision seems to be better. im going to increase my pc monitor from 13" to 19", ive noticed i squint trying to read the small screen.

  24. Kiehls makes an awesome eye treatment balm, that looks like chapstick that you rub on your eyes

  25. looking into now, thanks

  26. I found that nutrition has fixed my bags. Now that I eat more organic foods. More fruit less grains. Salad n fresh veggies every meal and I juice once a day. Feel like a new person. I wont rant on about how amazing I feel but I suggest every one else look into this aspect of there diet.

  27. how is "juicing" healthy......lol, ive started to become alot healthier in my diet in the last few weeks, veggies, fruits, and such

    Yea that's what were all taught. I think the truth is coming forward that as far a body composition is conserned its the quantity of macro that mattesr not the source. I'm not saying eat candy instead if yams Cuz its the same marcos but I saying if you juice 2 apples half lemon some carrots n greens the fructose isnt going to make u any fatter than a yam would. Try it out if you don't believe me. As far as health n nutrition goes I its all about the source of your food rather than quantity.

    Well the thing is the insulin Spikes from the rapid absorption,,, it lacks the fiber

  32. Trust me, I'm a big fan of juicing and will juice fruit on purpose for the sugar high and the insulin pump, preworkout

    Yea same I love it.. I totally understand the whole insuline spike stuff I just think some times people take it to far like by thinking fruit is going to make them fat so they eat yams and brown rice all day for carbs. Which is not the best way to diet IMO. I guess that's all I was trying to say.

    I guess I was speaking to the opposite crowd who think that by juicing they don't need to eat whole fruit

    In certain cases I have people alter their eating to put them more into an alkaline state. Again it depends on multiple factors if this the proper recommendation to make to Dr for their patients. This is why one needs a complete detailed medical history, and diet journal to know where adjustments need to be made.

  36. I read somewhere that eating carbs two hours before bed can help induce better sleep

    Having proper glyocogen levels will help this as it helps to produce serotonin. This is why when prepping people for contest, i montor there neurotransmitter and make suggestion to support proper balance to prevent them going purely dopamamine/NE dominant which is not a good thing. It really becomes an art form of science when getting the desired results.

    Is it a good idea to have my own glucometer even if I'm not diabetic?? Was thinking about getting one for the hell of it,, can get it with my flex spending card

  39. If you dab a warm caffeinated tea bag under your eyes it will serve as an astringent, causing them to shrink. Also if you elevate your head slightly when you sleep.
