What Organ Causes Your Fatigue?
Your lungs can cause your fatigue, something no one would expect. If you’re easily fatigued, you can tell if it’s the lungs by this easy test: Every year at your birthday, put 10 candles on a cake, and see how many you can blow out at one time. If you can’t get two, there’s a concern. Here are a few tips: when you wake up, one deep breath, blow into a balloon. Next, when you’re driving, roll the windows up when you’re sitting in traffic. Air pollution is worse in the evening than morning.
Best Carbs To Drop A Dress Size
Carbs make you tired, and make you gain weight, but if you swap a few, you can drop a dress size.
For pasta lovers, swap for shirataki noodles and you can drop 11 pounds a year.
For potato lovers, use the purple potatoes, because you won’t gain any weight, unlike real potatoes. If you swap that, you can use 3 pounds a year.
For white rice lovers, use pearl barley instead. It has 4 grams of fiber, so it’ll keep you regular and help you lose 3 pounds a year.
For potato chip lovers, use pretzels, but the thinner ones, not the bigger pretzel rods. If you swap those, it’ll help you lose 6 pounds a year.
