RED MEAT VS WHITE MEAT #Diamondtrut #diary

Red meat: Beef milks the energy out of other foods and gets it through to your muscles. The Department of Agriculture found 100g of beef - the equivalent of a slap-in-the-pan minute steak - gives you 17% of your RDA of vitamin B12 and 33% of B6. What do they do? Well, they release the oomph from carbs, with a study at Oregon State University, US, finding athletes who had sufficient levels of B vitamins had more energy for demanding sports. So next time you baulk at the price of beef, remember, it’s making the rest of your diet more effective.
White meat: You’ll get 197 calories from 100g of chicken meat which will give you more play than the measly 142 calories you’ll get from a 100g chunk of hide. Admittedly the fowl does have 2% less B vitamins than red meat but your energy supply will be revived with the extra 55 calories that make up for the bull’s calorie shortfall.

Muscle

Red meat: A 100g slab of steak give your hungry muscles 21g of protein which isn’t bad, but more is less with beef as your body can only absorb 74% of that in one sitting. You’ll enjoy eating it but over a quarter of the protein you’ve paid for will literally be flushed down the khazi.
White meat: Wing it for more muscle. Your body absorbs 80% of the protein in a chicken portion. Our feathered friends’ amino acids are also digested easier, too, which will help you build some wing-shaped lats of your own.

Recovery

Red meat: That 300g hunk of steak you scoff at your local gives you 90% of your RDA of zinc. A useful post-workout ally because endurance athletes were able to keep their immunity strong and fend off colds and illness when they kept their zinc levels up to scratch, found a study in Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews. Fight swine flu with your steak knife.
White meat: With 110mg of omega-3s, chicken weighs in with six times more of these beneficial fatty acids than beef. They’re a great post-workout performance booster because guys who took omega-3s and didn’t exercise improved their VO2 max by 4.5% more than those blokes who exercised but didn’t take the omega-3s, found a study at Western Washington University. This means you’ll do less huffing and puffing after your sprint and bedroom sessions, even if you finish one a lot quicker than the other.

And the winner is...

Chicken, for its superior muscle-building and recovery abilities. No bull.

List of youngest birth mothers( A Nigerian is on this list)

A Mexican girl has become one of the world’s youngest mothers after giving birth aged just NINE .

The youngster, named only as Dafne, gave birth to a 6lb baby girl on January 27 at the Zoquipan Hospital, in Mexico's western Jalisco state.

But the young girl is in fact four years older than the youngest mother in medical history, who was just FIVE when she gave birth.

Here is a run down of the 10 youngest mums…

1. Lina Medina, from Ticrapo in Peru, gave birth to a baby boy named Gerardo by caesarean section aged five years and seven months old in May 1939. Her parents thought she had a tumour but when she was taken to hospital, she was found to be seven months pregnant.

2. Yelizaveta "Liza" Gryshchenko had just turned six when she gave birth to a stillborn baby girl in the Soviet Union in August 1934. The infant’s father was Liza’s 69-year-old maternal grandfather. The family emigrated after the scandal.

3. A six-year-old girl, known only as ‘H’ gave birth to a daughter …

Prison Bae: This Model From Miami Might Have The Hottest Mugshot Of The Year (Photo)

There aren’t many things in this world more bittersweet than taking an attractive mugshot.Being able to look attractive at one of life’s lowest moments is a truly admirable feat, and anyone capable of turning heads while facing criminal charges certainly deserves credit for it.Unfortunately, there’s one major problem with having a hot mugshot: The fact that it’s a mugshot in the first place.I’m willing to guess that 22-year-old Angela Coates wasn’t exactly thrilled to be arrested for disorderly conduct back in August.However, something tells me that the model wasn’t too disappointed with the results of the picture she took while being processed.In the Year of the Attractive Mugshot, it’s not easy to set yourself apart, but showing up to jail looking like this is a pretty good strategy when it comes to getting everyone’s attention.
