Fat Burning Foods.

Fat burning foods sounds about as likely as screwing to become a virgin, but someone somewhere will believe anything it seems.
Grapefruit and Watermelon -very tasty, but full of sugar, which is something the body converts to fat to store -apparently this is not as well known as I thought.

Berries -sugar again. Berries are something birds eat to fattern up for winter. Silly birds would apparently put the pounds on if they left off on the berries.

Celery famously uses more calories to eat raw than it contains, but 75% of the world's population hate the taste. Putting celery in a meal without finding out if the person it is intended for is one of the majority makes you a very bad host. With so much of the world hungry should we grow something that has little food value and most of the world hates anyway?

Greek Yogurt. Just Greek Yogurt apparently, not any other yogurt, but it doesn't have to be low-fat greek yogurt. (most low fat yogurts have lots of sugar in instead so are still high calorie).

Eggs. Yup, nothing remotely fatty about them, obviously fat burners.

Fish. Fish never has any oil or fat in it at all. That is why Eskimos are so skinny.

Green Tea, Coffee and Water. Not sure about fat-burning, but probably low in fat and sugar. Unless you go for the double cream with syrup.

Quinola and Oatmeal. These are seeds and grains, yet another thing birds eat to get fat.

Hazing


                Hazing does not refer to institutionalized bullying but to category of defensive techniques called Kasumi in Japanese. “Haze” in this context refers to smoke, mist, or most accurately, the “fog of war”. Like the other form of Hazing it is also a form of harassment.

                Hazing covers a variety of different techniques that all have the same consequence:-they disrupt the victim’s ability to see. Seldom considered in the gym or practice hall, such techniques may be used against you in a real fight. Hazing techniques include:-
  • Throwing particulate matter. Ninja threw or blew special powders into an enemy’s eyes. In many environments dust, dirt, sand, gravel or snow is readily available for similar purposes. If a foe has a hand clenched this is a possible attack.
  • Throwing Weapons and other objects. Shuriken were often thrown towards the eyes as a distraction. Other Weapons or less overtly bellicose objects can also be used. Wallets or coins may be thrown in the instance of a robbery.
  • Throwing liquids. A drink can be thrown into the eyes as a distraction technique. Strong alcohol or hot drinks can have an added effect. The glass or cup may them be used as a Weapon. Repulsive though it may seem, spitting at the opponent has also been used.
  • Jabbing or flicking the fingers at the eyes is another hazing technique. If the fingers do not make contact they may still provoke a flinching reaction that can be exploited.
  • Cuts to the forehead that bleed into the eyes may be considered to act as hazing.
  • Blows to the nose that cause the eyes to water may also be considered to be a form of hazing.
