  1. I'm really loving the discussions on skincare, so I'm curious to hear everybody's lifestyle around healthy eating.  Are you vegan? Paleo? Pescetarian? How do you meal plan and are there any super health foods you recommend?
    Disclaimer: I put healthy in parenthesis to emphasize this is about consistent healthy eating and not crash yo-yo dieting that is bad for your skin, health and mind!
    Mine is a working-progress but here is what I have so far.
    Current meal routine:
    Wake up; One glass water and one cup coffee (I know, coffee bad ;~;)
    Breakfast; Protein, carb and fruit (usually omelette, one slice wheat bread and avocado)
    In between; homemade fruit and spinach smoothie
    Lunch; Non-meat protein, carb, veggies
    In between; Oolong tea/walnuts/seaweed
    Dinner; Protein, veggies, few glasses of water
    Super foods I incorporate: *click links for articles on the benefits
    Seaweed
    Kimchi
    Avocado
    Tomato
    Oolong tea
    Walnuts
    Salmon
    Foods I avoid:
    Red meats
    Desserts
    Oil
    Butter
    Cow milk (I replace with hemp, almond, soy, coconut, many alternatives!)
    How about everybody else? Would love to hear anything food-related! 
  2. Post on Fasting in Health & Wellbeing

    By Mega Milk, posted
    (Not sure if there's topic already but I guess not! )
    So I was wondering if anyone of you all was ever (non-religious) fasting for few days/weeks or even months? 
    In last time I've read a lot about it and that many people are doing it (usually water fasting) two times a year. They're telling that after few days fasting they feel already really good inside their skin. Also being happy about their weight loss, skin gets "prettier" and its much easier to end eating habits after. 
    I thought this would be a good start for summer and to feel even more comfortable on the beach in a swimsuit. 
    What's your experience about it?
  3. So I decided to finally lose weight after years. I want to lose 50-60 pounds. I am 154 lbs and i want to be around 100 ideally. But realistically I want to be 115-120 by May. Can any of you put any exercise routines or healthy recipes/tips to lose weight. I can't go run everyday  because I live in an "unsafe" neighbourhood, but I do play soccer on the weekdays. Do you have any exercises you can do in small cramped spaces that actually work?
    Anyway I kind of wanted to create this thread to help eachother out show how we lost weight. I lost 10 pounds in less than a week by starving ( i know very bad, won't do it again ever) though but now I just binge eat and i gained it all back. I plan on just skipping dinner since one of my relatives told me thats how she dropped so much weight. she doesn't eat past 2pm.
  4. Post on ignore in Beauty & Fashion

    Hello everyone!
    I'm new here at PULL so this is actually my first post lol. I've been a long time lurker but finally decided to make an account c:
    Since middle school I have always had bad acne outbreaks, but I never started following a skincare routine because i just never got into all the beauty stuff. i was wondering if anyone could share their routine for clear and healthy skin; it would be greatly appreciated and helpful! 
    My skin type is greasy (? i think) but it also tends to get flaky/dry in some areas of my face (under/around my nose mostly).
    Thanks for the help! 
    I just realized theres a subtopic for skincare so i'm gonna repost under that lol

  6. Hi!
    I thought it might be a good idea to start a new "topic" about health, weight and studies about human nutrition/the effects of different foods and environmental elements on our health because many people are misinformed about topics such as diet and exercise.
    Most people also don't seem to care about what they ingest anymore, yes, there are trends like eating only organic food, eating plant based etc but even people who follow those trends are often not really informed about them.
    I would also like to discuss different "traditional" diets (traditional = believes about the diet in different cultures) and the effects of foods on our bodies (since not every body works the same, this might help people with certain conditions).
    Thanks for joining this discussion! 
  7. Hey so a couple years ago i had a back surgery in my lower back, but i LOVE working out so i was wandering if anyone has suggestions on some low impact exercising that i may be able to do while still taking it easy on my lower back. the only ones the doctors told me about was walking a swimming. and yes i have been cleared for physical activity.

  8. Post on Toned (11) abs in Health & Wellbeing

    By ash, posted
    Hello! There is a thread for a flat stomach but I want to know how to get toned or also known as 11 abs. Maybe also to get rid of excess fat.
    There’s only so few articles I can find, and I’m wondering if there is anyone that could help. 
    Here are some examples below:


    (Sorry if the pictures are big...)
  9. Hello, this is such a weird thread to propose but I thought it’d be useful to some users who suffer from (repeated) urinary track infections. This might help relieve the symptoms and help you recover quicker when you’re using antibiotics. I have also found these practices, if involved in a daily routine have significantly reduced the occurrence of UTIs for me.
    Tip #1
    Drink the recommended minimum of water and then some. This assists in keeping the urinary track active and flushes out any foreign bacteria.
    Tip #2
    Cranberry juice is good for detoxing and releasing any toxins in the liver and urinary track. But the taste is a bit offensive to a lot of us, if you suffer from easily contracted UTIs I would recommend sucking it up. Literally haha, what I do is I fill a gal glass with 1/2 chilled water 1/2 cranberry juice and using a straw, drink the juice quickly so the bitter taste doesn’t stay in my mouth for too long. Cranberry juice is also known to rot your teeth so keeping the straw at the back of your mouth away from most of the teeth can reduce any of the side effects of this.
    Tip #3
    D-Monnose, D-Monnose, D-Monnose!
    this natural UTI relief is a god send for girls who suffer from chronic or repeated UTIs. Many girls, including myself have seen that this capsule if taken daily can assist in preventing UTIs. If you’re currently suffering from one, you can also take up to 9 a day (3x morning, midday, night) and they do assist in making it easier to pee and keeping he urinary track in optimal health. This supplement also comes in powder form and many girls find it tasteless and easy to sprinkle over a bowl of porridge in the morning. Both options can be found on iHerb and are decently priced IMO.
    Tip #4
    “Pee after sex!”, everyone tells us, we do, still get a UTI. How I’ve found to assist this is, yes peeing after sex, but then getting a bottle of water or cranberry juice and downing it within the next half hour while my partner and I cuddle. 
    Tip #5
    Dont use scented soaps and stay away from soaking in bath bomb water.... in my experience these two are serious culprits for sensitive girls and uncomfortableness down there. I recommended using warm water, your hand and an unscented non-soap like Cetaphil. Also, don’t buy fancy Fem-Fresh soaps, wash no more than daily, don’t douche and wipe front to back.
    Tip #6
    Diet can also assist. I have always found since eating less processed foods and oils that my urinary track is healthier. Consume water dense foods and stay away from consuming too many citrusy fruits.
    Conclusion, I’m not a doctor nor gyno and I always recommend going to a dr when you have a UTI or alone symptoms. But if you’re sensitive and prone like me, practising these tips have resulted in being less prone to contracting UTIs following sex. As well as sped up recovery from UTIs.
    i hope this helped xx
  10. Hello not sure if this is allowed or not... ;/ but basically,
  11. people with a fast metabolism, how do you gain weight? i just gained weight recently like 3kg (i was 40kg for several years). i want to know how do you all manage to have more weight.
    im sorry if i sound lazy, its 5 am here
  12. idfk who else to ask, i havent been outside in 2 weeks and my best friend is ignoring me or something fuckin pog moment
    today I slept around 16 hours, only waking up each hour or so, checking to see if she responded to me since her last message was kind of worrying?
    I only woke up to play minecraft, now its almost 2am and I'm not even sure if i will sleep at all today. I haven't eaten either. My appetite has kinda gone downhill and since quarantine started i lost around 2kgs (from 53kg to 51kg) out of nowhere, even though I've stopped workout, since my body has no energy from not eating.
    I don't know. Am i like, okay lmao???
