Tips On Ironing Shirt

* After washing, give the shirt a quick shake & ideally put it on hanger so that it falls into its natural shape as it dries. Avoid it just spreading on the clothesline.

* Before ironing, spray the shirt liberally with water & begin by ironing the collar on the "wrong" side, starting from the outer corner. Repeat on the right side, pulling the corner up as it's ironed inwards- this will create a neat curve.

* Next, the yoke should be ironed - first on the wrong side, & then on the right side. She should then go on to the cuffs, again starting the ironing from the outer edge.

* The backs should be tackled on the wrong side. And then, the sleeves need to be ironed. They should be smoothed on the ironing board while ironing. Careful attention should be paid to the gathers around the cuffs & the seams around the armholes. Sleeves can be ironed with or without creases.

* Finally the two front sections need to be ironed. Your help should move the iron around buttons & flatten out any creases along the armhole seams.

* The shirt should be left to air on a hanger for a while before turning to the wardrobe.

Want that Flat Tummy

Everybody knows the mantra for losing weight : Eat less, Exercise more. But to get flat abs, u have to do some extra work & also have to change ur eating strategies:

Concentrate on whole grain:
I will favour multi grains. Bran, rice, finger millet, oats & pearl millet have a low glycaemic index (GI), its perfect for weight loss. The soluble fibre in these grains slows down the entry of sugars & fats into ur bloodstream. Obese adults who ate a diet rich in whole grains for 12 weeks lost more ab fat than those who ate refined grains.

Have right fat:
Good sources of healthy fats: Olive or canola oil, avocados, walnuts & flax seed.

Eat water:
The more water rich foods u eat- tomatoes, cucumbers, squashes, gourds, papaya, lettuce, melon & oranges - the smaller ur waist. Calories are low & u feel fuller.

Sip Green Tea:
According to a study, Overweight people who exercised for 3 hours every week lost 8 percent more ab fat by adding a green tea extract to their regimen.

Its increase in body discard water to enter in blood...& our heart has to make more efforts to work efficiently.
