See Some Untold Health Risk of Waist Training

We do it for the glamour, we do it for the attention, we do it for the selfies and we do it to get an hour glass figure, but unfortunately our health is paying the price for it. We totally understand the struggle with weight loss; it could be downright difficult. Lowering your calorie intakes, reading nutrition labels for deceptive ingredients, exercising, yet when you look into the mirror, you see no improvement.  So of course, when we hear you can actually loose stomach fat and have an hour glass figure without changing your lifestyle by simply wearing a piece of cloth, your natural instinct would be to jump at it. Though it sounds too good to be true, that’s the basis for the newest trend in weight loss called waist training.

For a long time, women have always worn tight undergarments to contour their bodies for a desired, shapely appearance. It recently exploded into popularity after popular celebrities attributed their toned body to its consistent use. This has caused a high demand in latex and non-latex corsets to attain an unnatural hourglass figure.

This practice involves wearing a corset-like device for hours at a time to compress your core, which is supposed to decrease the size of your waist over time. The hope is that the body will maintain that shape and inches will be lost, creating a leaner and slimmer appearance. However, there is no evidence to show that this change will remain permanent without wearing the garment. There is also the theory that the stomach will be squeezed into a smaller shape, causing to become less hungry and reduce your calorie intake. There is no clinical proof that this is effective or beneficial to a woman, and in fact, it may be harmful to a woman’s body over time.
According to health experts, when you wear a corset, it doesn’t just squeeze you on the outside to look thin, it is also squeezes your internal organs. This pressure on the internal organs causes serious health concerns. If the lungs are prevented from properly expanding, it can increase the risk of pneumonia. As the stomach and colon are prevented from moving its contents, heartburn and chronic constipation can occur. Forcing the ribs and muscles into a tight and restrictive garment can cause chronic pain and bruising. The corset can also prevent the return of blood flow to the heart, which can affect blood pressure and may result in dizziness and even fainting.

While some people can get away with wearing the waist trainer without any real harm done, for a real, long-term weight-loss plan, you must think otherwise. It has not been medically proven that cinching your waist tightly will make it permanently smaller. Once you take the garment off, your body will return to its usual shape. It's also uncomfortable, restricts your movements, and if you wear it really tight, it can even make it difficult to breathe and could cause rib damage. Also, wearing a waist-cinching device for a workout isn’t a good idea either, especially if it restricts your mobility or your ability to take full, deep breaths. It can really affect your ability to work hard.

Dr. Caroline Apovian, a professor of medicine says that waist trainers won’t have any lasting effect on waist size, shape, or appearance. They’ll make you look slimmer while you wear them, but you may have to put up with some discomfort and maybe even some health risks in return.Not that waist training is completely bad, moderation is key.  If you’re going out and want to look really thin, there is no problem wearing a waist training corset. It may even help boost your confidence and encourage you to exercise and eat healthy. But if you are looking for something permanent, waist training is not the way to go.

What you need to do to shed calories around your belly is to eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis.Twist crunches, skipping, jogging  can help define those stomach muscles and to really lose inches around your waist. It's not trendy, but it's the one thing that works, whether you want to drop baby weight or just a few stubborn fat. There is no cheating or quick fix to fitness.What’s important to remember is that there is no perfect body, but there is a healthy body for each one of us.

Nicki Minaj’s Ex, Safaree,Comes For Her In New Song

Nicki’s ex, Safaree, who she has credited in the past for jumpstarting her career, is clearly not going on with the future without sharing some few words or in this case, lines about the past.
In his new song released by TMZ, the song titled, Love The Most, discusses Nicki’s alleged infidelity, her refusal to carry his baby and watching from the sidelines while she became huge all the while refusing to claim him.
He also talks about her kiss with rapper Nas in the video of her 2012 hit song, Right By My Side, which clearly hurt him;
Had to watch you kiss Nas and pretend it’s all cool / Inside I was feeling like a motha f**king fool.”
We wonder what Nicki has to say to this.

Tinubu is a local champion - Bode George

Chief Bode George has taken a swipe at APC Leader, Bola Tinubu after Bukola Saraki's emergence as the Senate President..The former deputy chairman of the PDP who also promised to go on exile when Buhari became president says Tinubu has five minutes to the end of his political career.Speaking to Punch from London,he said

 The APC would discipline Saraki? Is Saraki a child? They probably think they are playing local politics like the one they play in Lagos State. I welcome them to the real world,” he said.
“You know I predicted weeks ago that the APC is just a congregation of strange bedfellows. The most beautiful thing about what has happened is that Bola Tinubu’s political influence in Nigeria is coming to a sunset and it is about five minutes to midnight for him.
“If he cannot see this now, then it will be foolish of him. He brought in the APC national chairman and the vice-president and he thinks Nigeria belongs to him.
So, he thought what he did in Lagos was what he could replicate at the national level and they have shown him that he cannot continue to be the lord of the manor.
“So, if he is wise, he will slow down. President Muhammadu Buhari, as an army general, has fought more battles than him and has an understanding of things.”
 The PDP was never dead. We were only given a bloodied nose, not a technical knockout. So, this is an opportunity to start regrouping and getting ready for 2019. I want to salute the dexterity and perfect political manoeuvres for which the PDP is well known.
“People like Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande in Osun have always been local champions. Now, they have come to the national level of politics and they are now learning the tricks that all that glitters is not gold.“I congratulate Saraki and Ekweremadu. They understand what Nigeria is all about.”

The mother, Mrs Nwadike held the teacher, pulled her cloth and ordered the sons to cut her hair.

The intervention of another teacher, Mrs Osuagwu provoked the sons and one of them, Uche almost strangled her.

Mrs Nwadike and children were arrested and detained at the Obehie police station, in Asa.

Woman tortured for stealing iPad writes police commissioner

Karamat Eleha, a trader at the Balogun Market, Lagos State, who was tortured by four policemen, has petitioned the state Commissioner of Police, Kayode Aderanti, to get justice for her.

Eleha, in the letter dated June 2, 2015, and made available to PUNCH Metro, urged the commissioner to investigate the assault and sanction the cops accordingly. She said she could identify her tormentors.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, had said “there was no issue of torture.”

But the petition read in part, “On May 14, 2015, One Shola Ogunbayo, one Kemi (Iya Ibeji) and I were arrested by men from SARS, Ikeja, on the allegation that a tracker revealed that one iPad that was stolen from a woman in Ajah was in our building in Idumagbo. We were subsequently taken to SARS, Ikeja and detained.
I was subjected to extreme torture, degrading and inhuman treatment after I was stripped naked. As a result, severe injuries were inflicted on my back and buttocks by the policemen.
“I hold the view that the action of these policemen was reckless, high-handed and oppressive. It is repressive to the extreme and shows a total disregard for the standard set up by the law and the office of the Inspector General of Police. I implore you to use your good offices to order an immediate and thorough investigation into this matter and mete necessary sanction to serve as a deterrent to others. I can identify all of them if seen.”
