Desire : Reduce weight, prevent high blood, reduce cholesterol, relieve pain

Remedy : Kissing 3 times a day, 20 seconds each

A Russian newspaper quoted a scientific research saying that kissing can stablize heart artery behavior, prevent high blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and in the long run can result in weight loss. No details given.

The research also reported that during kissing, the massive saliva released in the mouth which is high in calcium and phosphorus can protect against tooth decay as well as reduce the probability of gum inflammation. I wonder who is cleaning who ?

On the other hand, kissing is good for facial beauty as passionate kissing exercises 30 muscles on the face, promotes blood circulation, thus resulting in smoother skin. Is that how those skin beauty equipments were simulating ?

Kissing relieve pain as the saliva contains pain relieving properties and the more passionate the kissing, the more saliva will be released. The researcher joked that if ever pain is unbearable, try kissing instead of pain killer medicine. Are the manufacturers of Panadol, Tylenol, Aspirin, etc. laughing away ?

For those who buy in this research, please share the result. For those who are not taking the chance on kissing or weight loss pills, try tea.

Is it true Singaporeans never weigh themselves?

From the recent global survey of 9,000 people across 13 countries (UK, USA, UAE, France, Czech Republic, Romania, Canada, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia) by a global market research firm, Synovate, Singaporeans are the least weight-obsessed people in the world as compared to the American and the French :-

  • 37% of Singaporeans saying that they never weigh themselves
  • 29% said their weight never change
  • 60% eat whatever they want, whenever they wantbathroom-scale.jpg

15% of Hong Kong people weigh themselves once or more every week and 60% only weigh when they remember.

Americans and French are most weight-obsessed, 15% of French people and 12% of Americans weigh themselves every single day and 50% of them will weigh at least once a week or more.

French attributed this to the fact that “French people take care of their image as a matter of course. Being thin is part of our culture and a point of pride. We are known for it. On top of this, there is increasing awareness of the devastation that obesity can cause to one’s health.

So, is it true that Singaporeans never weigh themselves?

Most homes do not have a weighing scale even though the price is so affordable now and they comes with digital meter (more accurate), all kinds of colors and design. Are we too busy to weigh or we are like the 29% who really believed that our weight never change or there a no necessity to weigh since we believed we are healthy or weight change doesn’t matter.

Some feedbacks are that they are afraid to see their weight fluctuate, especially when it has increased. Some felt weighing scale is quite a silly gadget to buy, a waste of money. Some Chinese old folks joked that Chinese don’t weigh themselves except to animals for sale (butcher’s family!?).

Going by the sprouting of health fitness and slimming centers, etc. around the island, weighing scales are everywhere. Moreover, all medical clinics will have it too. Those who are consuming weight-loss medicine, traditional herbal weight reduction beverages, etc should be weighing prior and after the dosage period to assess its effectiveness. So, most people would have themselves weighed.

I really wonder for those 29% who said that their weight never change, are they those who frequent the fitness center or exercise regularly themselves or resort to weight control medicine or supplements? In addition, for those 37% who do not weigh, do they eat whatever they want and whenever they want?
