Eat Fat and Loose Weight

One teaspoon of FAT!

When you are on a diet to loose weight the fear of hunger and the reality of poor nutrition is a concern. A first practice for dieting is eating less. This is a good thing if the quality of nutrition is very high and the absorption rate is effective for good health and energy.

If 1 teaspoon of fat is eaten with every meal the delay in digestion will give less hunger time before the next meal. Fat takes a longer time to digest than other foods. Eaten in combination with other foods delays digestion.

Savoring the taste of fat is pleasurable and will also add to the time taken to eat. It takes about twenty minutes for the brain to get the message of satiety so this slower eating practice will lessen the amount taken in. If you eat without realizing your need you will take in food that is unnecessary. Eat slowly with thoughtful awareness of your need.

Fat is a crucial solvent for Vitamins A, D, E and K. This is not a complete list as there are other nutrients that need the presence of fat to be absorbed and digested. If fat is present then more nutrients are accessible by the body systems and good health is a result. Less food will give good health because of the higher efficiency of digestion. Fat is the key.

One teaspoon of peanut butter is one serving of fat for an average adult. Other nut butters such as almond, sesame (in the form of tahini), walnut, sunflower seeds are good choices also. Some may prefer grape seed or sesame seed oils and saturated fats such as coconut and avocado.

Eat fat and loose weight. Savor the valuable servings of fat.…

Golfing Handicap System – The Basics

Golfing Handicap System – The Basics

What is the handicap system?

When buying golf equipment, it is recommended to ask the supplier what level of handicap the club is best suited for. Some golfing equipment is specifically tailored for scratch players whilst some is more suitable for higher handicap players. For optimum playing it is recommended that golfers find out what their handicap is and find a golf club to suit. This is why understanding the handicap system is so important in the world of golf.

In golf, the handicap system is used to establish fair play between different levels of golfers in tournaments or friendly play. The handicap system is copyrighted by the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU) and is a recognised system within the UK and Ireland. It basically measures an amateur golfer’s current standard of play. It also stands as a great way of measuring whether a golfer is making progress and highlights areas of a golfer’s technique requiring improvement. The higher the handicap of the golfer, the lower their golfing ability is considered to be.

How does a handicap work?

The extra shots a handicap player is allowed to take ensures that all golfers of different ability levels can play together as equals using a fair system and makes the game more interesting. The number of handicaps is deducted from the handicap golfer’s score on certain holes. Handicap scores range from 1 to 28 for men and 1 to 36 for women.

A golfer’s handicap score represents how many strokes are allowed to be deducted on particular holes. A scratch player is a person with zero handicaps and is expected to complete the course with the same score as the standard scratch score (SSS) of the course. The scratch score of a course isn’t necessarily the sum of par. The County Union calculates the scratch score by taking the length of the course and naturally difficult conditions into account and bases the SSS on that.

What are the methods of applying for a handicap?

Only golf clubs affiliated with CONGU may administer handicaps to amateur golfers. In order to obtain a handicap, golfers have to become a member of an affiliated club and submit 3 or more score cards to the club for calculation. The club will then assess a suitable handicap score using the golfer’s lowest score and calculating the difference between that and the scratch score of the course.

How are handicaps applied to different games?

Handicaps are used differently in match play and stroke play. In match play the handicap score is calculated using the difference between the players/teams’ handicaps and is distributed over the holes to be played. For example on an 18 hole course, if player A has a handicap of 18 and player B has a handicap of 24 then player B is allowed 6 strokes over the six hardest holes with no stroke allowance on the remaining 12. Player A would be regarded as the scratch player. Once …
