Subject: Re: Your views on Calorie Counting and Weight loss

Forum: Your views on Calorie Counting and Weight loss

Hey there Adrea!

It is hard to say counting calories is a hype. From what I learned through my studies majoring in health science, there is definitely different types of calories and food macronutrients (fat, carbos, etc.). 400 calorires of bacon is a heck of a lot different than 400 calries of organic kale. While counting calories has its benefits for diet management, I don't think that is what was helping you lose weight. As someone already predisposed to want to lose weight, you proabaly ate more raw food and more vitamin enriched foods vs to fat and junk food like red meats and bacon.

I suggest taking up running as a method to lose weight. It will help you turn fat into muscle and speed up your muscle tone and metabolism. Plus you'll feel like a million bucks.

Forum: What method do you use to study effectivlely?

What do you use and do while studying?

I always preferred writing by hand in a notebook to study for tests and quizzes. IT just sticks in my head more. I use the app, Evernote, to help keep track of things, but I want to improve my study habits even more!

Looking forward to your comments!

Forum: Education and morality! Thanksgiving post!!

Recently I came across a dilemma in my educational journey. On one hand I have several assignments that are due this Monday along with a significant exam on that Monday as well with my final speech for SPCH 101 Tuesday. On the other hand, my family is traveling to see family. I ended up statying to get my work done and will be home for the thanksgiving holiday. What is your take on it!?! I want your input.

Subject: Re: Doctor?

Forum: Doctor?

When I think of the word "doctor" I think about high tuition rates as someone who's going to be a doctor. I also think about prescription meds and lots of study time. Honestly there is not much to it! Have a great holiday!!!

Subject: Re: Benefits of Art

Forum: Benefits of Art

I love music and visual art. I also like to write and poems! Other than that poetry does not have too much impact other than music. I can't go without it. To me, music is definitely art.

Subject: Re: How young should the death penalty be applied?

Forum: How young should the death penalty be applied?

This is a very disconcerting topic. I don't think the death penalty should be applied to anyone 18 or younger. If they do commit murder and those types of things, they need psychiatric help. We need to evaluate what we as a society can do to ensure stuff like this won't happen.

Good morning CollegeNET!

I read a very intriguing article about technology addiction. In our day to day lives in the year, 2014, it is so easy to just use our smartphones/tablets all day. I could easily zone out right now while writing this post to address this urgent issue. In fact, I already have. I just opened up a Facebook tab to comment what my friend posted. My name is P. Gittens and I have a cell phone addiction. Are you addicted? Leave a comment below if you are!

Have a great day folks and study hard as always!
