Freezer Spells

Written by Sam Stevens

Forrepparttar most part, I think that spells can be a valuable way to "act" out your anger, resentment, bitterness or jealousy. The very act of doing a spell can make a person who feels powerless or victimized, feel at least briefly, for at time that they are somehow in control ofrepparttar 105978 situation again. I have foundrepparttar 105979 following "freezer" spells to be quite satisfying to do, if you find yourself somehow dumped, oppressed or just plain wishing for some kind of psychological torture to stop. I am not completely sure if these spells or not, but when someone does me wrong,repparttar 105980 first thing that pops into mind isrepparttar 105981 frosty insides of my refrigerator. I love these spells because they fall underrepparttar 105982 category of corny spells, trailer trash wiccanary and because they originate from such an emotional, passionate and old style of witchcraft. Yet atrepparttar 105983 same time they are very modern because they make use ofrepparttar 105984 fridge. Technically too, they fall underrepparttar 105985 category of black magic because they are revenge spells, and representrepparttar 105986 desire to control another person. Being somewhat of a collector and connoisseur of corny spells, trailer trash wiccanary and any ritual that allows you to "act out your feelings" without necessarily hurting anyone, I thought I'd share them with you because they are a few of my favourites. Some of them have been sourced from Lexa Rosean, author ofrepparttar 105987 Supermarket Sorceress who is a master of Kitchen Witchery. Still I thinkrepparttar 105988 important thing about a freezer spell is to start withrepparttar 105989 basics and then make it your own. I know one natural witch, (a famous Canadian singer in fact) who knows nothing about freezer spells, yet every time she gets mad at someone, she writes their name on a little piece of paper, twists it up and throws it inrepparttar 105990 freezer to "make it stop!" I discovered this one day when I was groping through her freezer for some ice cream and a flutter of little pieces of paper fell out torepparttar 105991 floor. When I asked her about it, she told me her intuition had told her to putrepparttar 105992 people "on ice." The essence of a freezer spell is about time. The idea is to stop something in its tracks. Freezer spells also fall intorepparttar 105993 category of binding spells, as often their purpose is to paralyse an offender. They are used for protection, but mainly for REVENGE! Here are a few of my favourites. THE BASIC ICE CUBE TRAY SPELL: This is all-purpose and what I like about it is that you can use magickal ingredients to sweeten or sourrepparttar 105994 mix before you chuck it inrepparttar 105995 freezer. Basically, you take twelve small pieces of paper and write downrepparttar 105996 names twelve people or situations who have not been very nice to you or who have irked you or done you wrong. Think of twelve people who have been hostile to you, or who have a bad attitude towards you or who have behaved as obstacles to what you want in your life or career. Now stick these twelve pieces of paper inrepparttar 105997 ice cube tray compartments and add a little sugar, or honey to sweeten up their attitude towards you. You could also add a few other things as well if you wanted - a little dill or parsley powder for improved communication, orange water for joy or rose water to increase loving vibrations. Then you fillrepparttar 105998 rest ofrepparttar 105999 tray with water and stick inrepparttar 106000 freezer. I like this spell because it is relatively innocent and is persuading others to think of you kindly and not to harm you. A more vengeful version of this spell would be to add substances like vinegar (to sour their experiences) cigarette ashes (to cause depression) or horseradish (to cause arguments.)

Your Metabolism and Fat Loss

Written by Anthony Ellis

If you know someone that has been trying to lose weight and get into shape, you have probably heard words such as, "I just eat one meal a day to lose weight" or "I'm afraid if I eat, I'll gain weight" but sadly, this misnomer is why so many people are inrepparttar "battle ofrepparttar 105977 bulge". People all overrepparttar 105978 world still believe that eating breakfast, or even three meals a day will cause them to gain weight. In truth, as long as they are eatingrepparttar 105979 right types of foods and exercising, then three normal meals or six small meals a day will actually work better with their metabolism than eatingrepparttar 105980 wrong quantities or not eating often enough.

With more than half of Americans overrepparttar 105981 age of 20 now being considered "overweight", now more than ever, we need to understand how metabolism works in relation to losing weight. Why risk having a heart attack, a stroke, developing cancer, or diabetes when all you have to do is make a few minor changes and live a healthy life? First, a person's metabolic rate is determined byrepparttar 105982 number and size of respiring cells that compromiserepparttar 105983 body's tissue, andrepparttar 105984 intensity ofrepparttar 105985 metabolism in these cells. These two factors combined are what makeuprepparttar 105986 physiological foundation ofrepparttar 105987 amount of energy (calories) in which a body uses.

Keep in mind that energy cannot be created or destroyed, just changed. As we know, potential energy comes fromrepparttar 105988 foods we eat. When talking about weight loss, there are three components of balanced energy, which include calorie intake, calories stored, and calories expended. The way it works is that ifrepparttar 105989 amount of calories taken in equalsrepparttar 105990 amount of calories being expended (burned), then there is balance andrepparttar 105991 body's weight is stable.

Onrepparttar 105992 other hand, ifrepparttar 105993 balance becomes positive, caused by more food being eaten than is burned, energy is destroyed or in better terms, stored as body fat. It is important to remember that you can be eating a diet considered low-fat and still gain weight. The reason is that most dietary fat is stored whilerepparttar 105994 body is burning carbohydrates and proteins for energy. The problem isrepparttar 105995 when a person gains weight,repparttar 105996 increased level of fat becomes stored energy untilrepparttar 105997 calorie balance is negative. For that to happen,repparttar 105998 amount of calories burned needs to exceedrepparttar 105999 number of calories being consumed, no matter whatrepparttar 106000 macronutrient content.

Metabolism isrepparttar 106001 rate at whichrepparttar 106002 body uses energy to supportrepparttar 106003 basic functions essential to sustain life. This metabolism is comprised of three parts, which include physical activity (20%), Thermic Effect of Food, also called TEF (10%), and Resting Metabolism Rate or REM (70%). Physical activity isrepparttar 106004 amount of energy your body burns up during normal, daily activities to include housework, recreation, work, exercise, and so on. Obviously, someone that is physically active will burn more energy than a sedentary person will. TEF accounts forrepparttar 106005 energy used in digesting and absorbing nutrients, which would vary depending onrepparttar 106006 meal's composition. When a person overeats, TEF is increased because more food must be digested. Here is where metabolism becomes very interesting and what causes so much confusion.

One pound is equal to 3,500 calories, so let us say a person consumes 3,500 more calories than normal. That individual would not gain one pound becauserepparttar 106007 TED is accounted for but if 3,500 calories were cut trying to lose weight, then TEF decreases since there would be fewer nutrients to process. The result is that with energy expenditure would decrease, meaning thatrepparttar 106008 individual would lose less than one pound in weight. In other words, by cutting out too much food, TEF cannot work as it was designed to do. Now keep in mind that you cannot go around eating a bunch of junk food. After all,repparttar 106009 calories you do consume need to be healthy foods but what this does mean is that when you do not eat, you are actually working against your body in fighting weight gain, notrepparttar 106010 other way around.
