Citrus fruits like lemon, orange and tomatoes are acidic. But they form alkaline blood when digested, which is interesting considering the alkaline ph of a carp s gut. (Each of these fruits contain salicylic acid...) additional hints 5. Our fifth diet tip is to avoid weight loss pills and prescription diet pills that may be unsafe or even deadly. Although some diet drugs are completely safe and effective, others (like Meridia and Phen-Fen) have surprised users with serious side effects. The promise of fast weight loss isn t worth the risk to your health, so be cautious with weight loss drugs and other weight loss supplements. balloon weight loss Supplementing your diet with L-Carnitine can release the stored energy the body needs to build new muscle tissue, increase your energy and accelerate natural weight loss. There s no unwanted effects of prolonged supplementation of L-Carnitine because it s natural and readily found in our bodies. Starting off with at the very least 1,500mg of L-Carnitine daily is a good place to start. For those who have metabolic resistance anywhere from 3,000-7,000mg daily is necessary. I personally like to take 2,000-3,500mg daily, I ve got fantastic results doing this. best fat loss pill Lacking of sleep will make you feel tired and become lazy to do anything.

There are three simple ways to tell. First, check that they follow the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. Next, they must have an FDA-registered manufacturing facility. And last, they need to have a serious guarantee. Don t go with the first provider with the word guarantee on their website. Make sure the guarantee doesn t have any troublesome restrictions that will discourage you from making a claim. Once you ve found a company that meets the three conditions above, you can often feel good about your decision to buy HCG drops from them. fat loss 4 idiots free download Small Town Morning | Photo District Jakarta (PD-JKT)

Yashica TL electro- by Rick Drawbridge-

I’d been looking for a tidy Yashica TL Electro SLR for some months. The only ones on offer seemed to be more suitable for parts than for use or even decoration, so when this one appeared I grabbed it, along with a load of weird lenses and stuff I had to sell off promptly to maintain my domestic harmony. This one came with the Yashinon DS 50mm f/1.9 lens, one I’ve not seen very often, the camera usually having been sold with the f/1.7 attached. I have that lens on an earlier Yashica SLR and have found it up to the usual Yashinon standards, though I have a personal opinion that the Yashinon DS lenses aren’t quite as punchy as the earlier DX, and certainly not as well built.

I took the camera out very early one morning, along with a nice little DX 35mm f/2.8 lens, and took a stroll around one of our local towns. Not much was happening at 6.30 am, and I had the place pretty much to myself. The camera handled well, though I prefer the swinging needle metering of the TL Super to the diodes of the Electro; diodes are great if they’re telling you something, but just “up and down” doesn’t do a lot for me. And I still think Yashica got it wrong with the meter switch; as with the Spotmatics, I find the left-hand positioning awkward, compared to the right-hand position on the Prakticas. I find it much more natural to focus with the left, meter and shoot with the right. But overall it’s a nice solid camera with a really well-built feel; I was sorry to see it lacks the “mirror-up” feature of the TL Super and I don’t think it will be replacing that camera in my “favourites” list.

I’ll post a few pics. They were shot on Kodak Gold 200 instead of my usual Fuji, mainly because I found a couple of rolls in the back of the ‘fridge that had just gone out of date. They’re not great works of art, but you may be interested to see what a small New Zealand town looks like in the early dawn. I’ve straightened a few verticals and perspectives in Photoshop, mainly because I enjoy doing it and also because quite a few years spent doing architectural pics behind a 5×4 Sinar view camera engrains some hard-to-shake habits!
