How to Pick the Best Pet

FamilyPetBringing home a pet of your choice doesn’t simply affect you. New pets have an impulsive effect to the whole family. They become our new families once we take them home. For this reason, it is imperative that the whole family ought to be involved in the discussion regarding the introduction of new pets.

Pets often become our friends and our best companions within a few moments once they are brought home. They learn very fast and understand who the members of the family are, and who are not. They are loving and very loyal to every member.

Here is How to Pick the Best Pet for Your Family.

First and foremost, it would be prudent to consider the ability of the family to take care of a pet. Take your time to assess your family and to comprehend the most precise factors about each member. For instance, ask yourself whether both adults are working or not. If they are not working, bringing a pet that accommodates a higher maintenance is vital as adults are round the clock to provide tender care and affection for the pet.

Secondly, consider the ages of your family members. Is your family comprised exclusively of children? Are they young and unable to provide care for your animal? Bear in your mind that small dogs and young children may not be a good combination. Depending on the extent of temperament for your kids and the animals, make objective decisions on whether you should introduce a dog in your home.

Match the pet of your choice to your personal lifestyle. Ask yourself whether you are a day person or a night owl. Some pets spend most of the day sleeping while others are active during the daytime. For instance, some pets like the ferrets and sugar gliders spend the better part of their day sleeping. They are however active at night.

Consider your home environment and the type of pet you would like to introduce. Do you have enough space for your pet? Is there a backyard? Remember, your pet should not stray into the neighbors’ yard and impact them negatively. For this reason, it is vital to take into consideration your pet choice and the environment in question.

Take into account some of the possible chances of allergies that your family may be exposed to. Choose a pet that won’t affect your life and that of your family in a negative way. For instance, scorpion bites can be dangerous to you and your children.

Discuss some of the fears of your family members as it would be imprudent to introduce a pet that would pose threats to the family. A pet should be friendly, should not be intimidating. For instance, if most members of your family fear snakes and lizards, cross those reptiles completely from your list of prospective pets.

Another key aspect is the money or your financial potential. Ensure that you have enough discretional income to pay for the supplies for your pet. Remember, your pet must eat healthy food and sleep in a nice place alongside meeting specific needs. Running out of cash may imply that caring for your pet is totally unmanageable.

Finally, avoid impulse shopping. Do not purchase a pet out of inspiration. It is wise to make your purchase deliberate and a thought-out action. Buying a pet simply because it looks attractive and adorable is not an impeccable way to add another long term member of your family. So, do not be impulsive. In fact, it is important to ask your closest friend of what kind of pet might fit you instead of rushing.

Top 3 Diets of 2014

DietsThe market for fad diets continues to expand. Atkins started it with his famous high protein, zero carbohydrate diet and the phenomenon has now spawned a range of imitators – all of them promising to deliver us from the curse of unwanted body fat. let us then take a look at the top 3 diets of 2014 and see how they stack up against each other.

Paleo Diet

Also known as the caveman diet, Google nominated Paleo diet as the most searched weight loss method last year and the trend has persisted in 2014 as well. The nature of this diet is made obvious from the name itself, it consists of foods that our ancestors supposedly survived upon – meats from hunting and fishing and other food items that they’d gather like fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and spices. Grains, dairy, sugars, processed foods and salts are strictly prohibited in this diet. In essence, this diet can be viewd as another variance of a high protein, low carbohydrate program with greater latitude provided for carbohydrate intake in the form of fruits and vegetables.

The proponents of this diet swear by its efficacy to ensure not only a permanent weight loss but also in reducing risks of several lifestyle diseases like heart problems, diabetes, and other related health conditions. While there is no long term research to validate this claim, the fact that this diet encourages you to significantly cut down on the intake of processed foods and substitutes them with fruits, vegetables and nuts lends credence to the aforesaid claim. On the other hand, this diet is big on meat consumption which runs counter to several advisories against eating an excessive amount of meat. Lastly, this diet may also be heavy on your wallet depending on your choice of meat cuts.

Alkaline Diet

We can safely blame Hollywood celebrities including Jennifer Aniston to have turned this diet into a Google phenomenon. The underlying theory behind this diet is that people consume large amounts of acidic food that ultimately turns into body fat and leads to weight gain. Consumption of acidic food is also held responsible for several ailments such as arthritis, osteoporosis, tiredness etc. This diet advocates that you radically cut down on your acidic food items such as meats, grains, dairy, and other processed foods and opt instead for alkaline foods – basically lots and lots of fruits and vegetables. As a general guide, the diet advocates an 80/20 principle – fruits and vegetables should constitute 80 per cent of your diet and the rest to be made up with meats and grains.

While this diet advocates plenty of good eating habits like a focus on fruits and vegetables, it also suggests eliminating an entire class of food item, for example, dairy products. Lack of sufficient protein intake is an inherent risk of this diet and should you choose it, you might want to make sure your nutritional balance is not upset.

5:2 Diet

This diet finds a place in the top 3 diets of 2014 on account of its ease to follow. The philosophy of this diet is simple, eat as you normally do for 5 days of the week and fast on the other two. The cheerleaders of this diet not only highlight its efficacy in cutting down excess fat but also insist on other positive benefits like improved lifespan and cognitive abilities.
Once again, while there is no long term study to validate the aforesaid claim, two days a week on fast or restricted diet can definitely lead to weight loss. On the other hand, many dieters may mistake two days fast with licence to feast on the other 5 days. Other downsides of this diet include a feeling of irritability, dizziness, and headache on the days of fasting. Fasting is not suitable for everyone and you should consult your health service provider before you go for this diet.
