What is Atkins Diet
Since it’s introduction in the middle
1970’s, the Atkins Protein Diet has grown to be one of the
most popular methods of weight loss. It requires a large
of self-discipline and dedication but if done properly it
seems that people can lose a tremendous amount of weight in
short period of time. There are also claims that Atkins
dieters will experience other health benefits as well. The
Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine is confident that
their diet is the most successful means of weight loss
around as they teach patients to determine their personal
sensitivity to carbohydrates and manage their weight and
health for life. They have successfully treated over 60,000
patients who followed their diet, which each subject
experiencing some of the beneficial health effects as well.
researchers argue that this diet is incredibly bad for the
human body and is not a means of losing weight and
especially keeping it off.

...What is the Atkins Diet?
The idea of the Atkins Diet is to cut
carbohydrates out of one’s diet in order to lose a
significant amount of weight. An Atkins dieter is not to
consume starchy foods such as bread, pasta, potatoes,
cereal, any foods containing sugar, high sugar fruits and
vegetables, and even fruit juices; Thus eliminating many
foods one would normally need as a part of the four food
groups to stay healthy. A dieter is allowed no more than 30
carbohydrates a day; the equivalent of a few pieces of
lettuce or less than one apple, which is drastically less
than the suggested servings for fruits and vegetables. An
Atkins dieter is restricted to eat only meat and dairy
products, including chicken, fish, and milk, and even bacon,
eggs, cheese, and butter. In other words, one can live on
the most fattening foods, eating all the steak and rib
dinners that they want, and still lose weight.
Contradiction: How does a person get thin living on fatty foods?
The Atkins Diet works in two main
1) Since carbohydrates are the first forms of energy
burned in the body, the body goes into ketosis and learns to
burn the fat as energy because it has no more carbohydrates
to use. Ketosis is when there are no glycogen reserves in
the liver so the body breaks down muscle mass in order to
make energy that are necessary for brain function.
2) Because carbohydrates are digested quicker than
protein and fat, one can become hungry soon after eating a
huge plate of pasta or huge bowl of fruit. By eating only
protein, one will feel fuller, longer, and will have less of
an urge to snack in between meals.
Consult your doctor
before going for any diet plan - Not all the diet plans are
for every one. Atkins diet plan is NOT for Cholesterol
Computer Friendly Tips
A more enjoyable computer lifestyle is possible
by adjusting your computing habits. These PC tips will help
you find out what the best solutions to common problems are.
Many of the tips deal with making computing a more comfortable

caused from resting the "heel" of your palm on a hard surface
while operating your mouse for an extended duration. A mouse
pad with a gel wrist support has worked very well for me and
has certainly made my long term computing sessions much more
enjoyable. The gel pad keeps your hand in a more upright
position while redistributing the pressure points within the
soft gel. There are also keyboard wrist supports available for
the heavy duty typist.
may be caused from staring at your monitor for a long period
of time. I am not a Doctor these are merely suggestions...
• lower the contrast and brightness settings of your monitor
to reduce the bright glare effect of white screens.
• increase the size of the text you are reading, purchase a
larger monitor, or reduce your screen to a lower resolution as
described in the previous page.
• purchase anti-glare/anti-radiation screens that you place
over your monitor that help to protect you from radiation and
• occasionally take a break away from your computer to walk
around in the real world. If you're at home - do those
agonizing little chores like taking the garbage out. If you're
in the office - try to work away from your computer if
possible. Don't start using these breaks to start raiding the
fridge or you might create another problem ; )

inform you that I myself developed Pakistan Embassy forms for
Passport Renewal or addition. Please publish in the website so
people can download and print as and when they need.
Regards, Shafiq Ahmad
Dear Bhai, we appreciate your efforts
and are proud of you that you spent your time to help the
community and thought of saving resources of our beloved
country. Unfortunately your forms can not be put online.
Since 2001 we have been trying our best to convince the
officials of the embassy to allow us to put public forms (free
to obtain) online. This would have not only saved the limited
resources of our Pakistan but would have provided convenience
to all those who travel all the way to the embassy just to get
forms and to know what else they require to renew their
passport etc. But we are not even given a reason why every
time we were refused.
Give a call to the embassy and if you find someone who could
answer then ask the question we have been asking for years...
What really stops the embassy to put forms online when
Pakistan embassy in the US has given permission to publish
such forms even to a commercial site? We have absolutely no

AROMATHERAPY– NATURAL HEALING GOUTY ARTHRITIS
Gout is a very painful condition of the joints, especially
affecting the joint of the large toe. Excess of uric acid in
the body causes the formation of needle- like crystals around
the joints. The joints get inflamed making walking and finger
movements very painful. The condition, when worsens, leads to
swelling and kidney damage. There can be several causes of
Gout. It can be a hereditary condition. Intake of foods
containing purines like root veggies, potatoes, tomatoes,
grapefruits, lemons, limes, dried peas, beans and peanuts, red
meats, some seafoods and dairy foods etc., can all raise the
body’s uric acid. Another natural reason for Gout can be the
body’s malfunction to produce excess uric acid on its own. As
I have always recommended, before we begin the Aroma regime, a
dietician and a physician must be consulted to bring the
necessary changes in diet and to provide the right
Aromatherapy can help in many ways to ease the condition.
Appropriate essential oils can help reduce inflammation,
swelling, fluid retention and pain. These essential oils can
also help reduce toxins from the joints and help cleanse the
blood. They can encourage circulation and mobility of the
joints. Essential oils to consider are: Cajeput, Lemon,
Rosemary, Pine, Juniper berry, Black Pepper, Fennel, Basil,
Thyme and Hyssop. Methods of application can be through baths,
foot soaks, compresses, massages or through addition to creams
and ointments. When used in baths, the aroma oils dissolve the
crystalline formations around the joints. These toxins are
then passed out of the body through urine and feces.
Before using any of the above-mentioned essential oils, please
consider the contraindications of each oil.

Eid-Ul-Azha Reminds Us Of
A hearty Salam to all my dear friends. It is time
for some, long desired vacations from school to celebrate the
festival of Eid-ul-Azha and Haj. Along with the celebrations
of this Eid, comes the reminder of our pledge to Allah AMIGHTY.
Eid ul Azha is celebrated as a reminder of the sacrifice which
Allah's Apostle, Hazrat Ibrahim made. Hazrat Ibrahim was
blessed with a son, named Hazrat Ismial, after many years of
his marriage with Hazrat Hajra. No doubt, the pious parents
were very attached with their dear son. Of all Allah's men,
His apostles are the ones who underwent most tests from Lord.
For three nights, Hazrat Ibrahim dreamt that Allah desires
from him, the sacrifice of His beloved son. Since Hazrat
Ismial, after Allah, was the dearer thing to Hazrat Ibrahim,
so he hesitated. But as the dream continued to repeat for
three nights, he finally shared his dream with his son. The
obedient son replied that this is Allah's commandment and
shall be executed without delay. He further told his father
that this test is meant to check our devotion to Allah and
Holy purpose, and Allah will surely bless them. Hazrat Ibrahim
tied a cloth around his eyes so that he may not see his son
while moving the knife over his neck, lest the love of father
for his child may tempt him to leave Allah's order
unperformed. Just as the knife was about to cut through the
skin of the son, by Allah's order, a lamb took the place of
Hazrat Ismial and it was the lamb that got slaughtered leaving
Hazrat Ibrahim unscratched. Allah liked the devotion of the
two great apostles so much that he made the act of
slaughtering cattle in the path of Allah, a duty for all
affording Muslims and hence Eid Ul Azha, a festival for all
Muslims to come, till The Final Day.
Islam is a religion of peace. It wants its followers to spread
harmony. Since only affordable can manage to sacrifice animal
on Eid day, it would mean that poor ones will be left out with
nothing to enjoy. Islam has ordered the meat of slaughtered
animal to be divided into three equal shares with one meant
for home and family, other for relatives and third one for
poor. This way, by extending help towards the needy we show
them our concern for them and also provide them with a chance
to enjoy the day.
So while enjoying the celebrations of big Eid, keep in mind
the main idea that is behind it- devotion to Allah with no
"Buts" and "Ifs". It means, what is Allah's order
has to be performed, whether we find ourselves willing or not,
whether the social norms side it or not, whether the social
status permit or not. We shall be totally and wholly committed
Hope that you have a fun-filled Eid and aroma filled barbeques
in this pleasant weather of the year.
See you after a fortnight. Ma'salama.
