Front Bias, Left Bias, and Cross Weight: Suspension Tuning with Weight Adjustments

When making weight distribution adjustments, you must consider the weight transitions that the car experiences while you are driving. For example, when you accelerate, weight shifts toward the back of the car onto the rear wheels. When you turn right, weight shifts to the left side of the car. You can feel these weight transfers on your body while you are driving.

Weight Loss

The mechanics of weight loss is simple; energy lost must be greater than energy gained. You gain energy from the various foods and other nutritional supplements you consume; you lose energy through regular everyday activities, even breathing. The problem is a body at rest or doing regular activities does not utilize most of the energy that is consumed from the average American diet. The result is weight gain. All that extra energy is converted to fat and stored for later use, the problem is, that fat will sit there and keep building up and it has nowhere to go.

Basically, we want to increase how much work our …

Winter Weight

Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Jennifer Gillan who works for A.Vogel.

Serotonin is what is technically known as a neurotransmitter which in plain English means it helps messages pass down nerves to the muscles or organs they are meant for. Your internal communication network, when fired with plenty of serotonin, will be fully functional and your body will be a generally happier and more efficient place to hang out in. Lack of serotonin is associated with low mood, SAD syndrome and disturbed sleeping patterns. It can also, bizarre as it may sound, affect your weight.

Carbohydrate consumption can boost serotonin levels, so your body may crave …

It can be painful and is almost always a relatively expensive option. The main surgical method used to remove body fat is liposuction. This is not a cheap option and can cost anywhere between £1500 and £5000, depending on where in the UK the treatment is carried out and on what part of the body. Cheaper surgery is available in countries such as Spain and Hungary, but of course there will be extra costs to factor in …
