Zari gulps down smoothies after being fat shamed in Tanzania

 

When Zari landed in Tanzania early November to take her kids to visit baby daddy Diamond Platnumz, many noticed that she appeared bigger in person.

They remarked that she photo shopped alot to hide her weight.

Even Diamonds mother commented that she was noticeable bigger ‘amenona’.

Netizens shocked after huge difference in Zari’s appearance during Tanzania visit

“And you have grown so big,” Diamond Platnumz’s mother commented when she first saw Zari to which Zari said that quarantine had made her take a lot of trips to the fridge.

So as she was leaving Tanzania journalists from Wasafi Tv asked her about this and she said it is quarantine weight, adding that she will do something about it.

A week after going back to South Africa, Zari is sharing what she is doing about intentions to lose weight.

She shared a video in her kitchen making a green smoothie.

I thank God that I had kids with her- Diamond Platnumz’s high praise for Zari

“Angenimurder” Girl, 13 recalls dad beating her like a burukenge over bhangi

A 19-year old girl has recalled how drug use 6 years ago, nearly led to a brush with death after her father beat her like a dog.

She recounted how her use of bhangi at the tender age of 13 was like a path to destruction and how the beating helped her correct her ways.

She told Maina in a conversation about parents not disciplining kids these days that she was rebellious and regularly beaten.

“Wah let me tell you Maina. I was so rebellious, but ile kupigwa nimepigwa yani I don’t know I would just find myself doing wrong things. but ile kupigwa nilipigwa haipitangi 50 per cent,”

She turned to drugs because of peer pressure at 13 years and didn’t have a care in the world.

“I can remember in class 8 I tried something stupid, with boys and drugs and I was in class 8 at the time. in a public school. Weuh my dad found out and gave me kicks and blows, and remember I was 13, he didn’t beat me with a stick, he reigned kicks and blows, that beating Maina I vowed never to do drugs again coz of the beating, I can never do drugs again, bhangi ikae”

Husband-beats-4-months-pregnant-wife-to-deathShe added that that was a life lesson for her and what she will do going forward

“I am 19 like I said and I want a child by the time I turn 22 years, and I promise that I will discipline them. According to how I am planning my life I want to have a child in the next two years, but I haven’t identified the father yet, I’m still in school and I believe I will have a job and get a child, but huyo mtoto I will beat the daylights out of them asiniletee ujinga,”

4 relationship habits most people think are normal

 

Read about these habits that we mistake as healthy but are actually dangerous patterns we develop in our relationships.

1. Keeping score of who’s doing what

Some spouses find petty ways of upsetting their partner to justify complaining about the others behaviour.

Because it shows that you two are not comfortable communicating openly and clearly with one another. A person has no reason to be passive-aggressive if they feel safe expressing any anger or insecurity within the relationship. A person will never feel a need to drop “hints” if they feel like they won’t be judged or criticized for it.

sad-black-couple-in-bed
2. Holding the relationship hostage
Blackmailing your partner to stay in a relationship is pretty common behaviour that people don’t think alot about. When one person complains and blackmails the other person by threatening the commitment of the relationship, that is a problem.

Relationships

It’s emotional blackmail that brings about alot of unnecessary drama. Any small challenge in the relationship is used as an opportunity to tell the other person they are not committed. This ‘crisis’ results from negative thoughts and feelings that are not being communicated to each other, and so make it out to be a threat to the relationship.

Married

3. Blaming your partner for your own negative emotions
Let’s say you’re having a bad day most probably from work related stress, and your partner isn’t exactly being sympathetic or supportive at the moment. Yet you want them to pay attention to you.

So you lash out at them for being what you call insensitive.

young-couple-in-love-jealous-friend-horiz-640x431

4. Displaying a loving jealousy
When your spouse or partner gets mad when you talk, touche, call, text, hang out, with others and then takes the anger out on you, and attempt to control their behavior. This often leads to taking extreme action like hacking into your partner’s email account, looking through text messages while they’re in the shower or even following them around town and showing up unannounced when they’re not expecting you.

Looking at what the science says about Eric Omondi’s impressive muscle gains

Eric Omondi broke the internet last week after debuting a new look to his fans. When people described Eric’s physical appearance in the past, words like skinny and thin predominated.

But not anymore. The comedian’s new body has been giving many female fans sleepless nights with words like buff, muscles and hunk to now describe him.


View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Eric Omondi (@ericomondi)

And from before and after photos one can see that it isn’t hyperbole. The hype is well-earned. Eric, you see, used to weigh 48 kgs some 7 months ago.

That was until bosses from a local milk company challenged him to pack on more muscle, something he has since been able to accomplish. He revealed this through his Instagram page where he wrote;

So lato.milk gave me a challenge Seven months ago!!! I was only 48 KGs…Challenge was to build Mass and Muscles😊😎😎Challenge was accepted and the Journey is on!!! I am challenging myself to go further…

He still hasn’t revealed how much he weighs right now but I am willing to wager that he has gained between 10 and 15 kgs of muscle in his recent photos.

Jacque Maribe’s admission about Eric Omondi calls into question why she got a kid with him

The question is how did he do it? I know! I know! My question sounds redundant to some. He just went to the gym and ate more. True. But that is a simplistic answer.

Here’s the more in-depth one below

Eric’s body type from my scanning of his original photos is that he is an ectomorph. An ectomorph is a typical skinny guy, characterised by;

  • More narrow shoulders and hips in respect to height.
  • Relatively smaller muscles in respect to bone length.
  • Naturally fast metabolism makes it difficult for many to gain mass.

How to train for ectomorphs

Due to the numerous factors previously mentioned, most ectomorphic clients have developed bodies with highly active metabolisms and “lanky” bone structures, making it hard for them to put on mass and keep it on.

A post shared by Eric Omondi (@ericomondi)

For this reason, exercise techniques for hypertrophy and maximal strength should be prioritized, with a greatly-reduced focus on cardiorespiratory training to reduce overall energy utilization.

To accompany the mass gain-focused resistance training, ectomorphic bodies should eat a mass gain-focused diet. These individuals tend to burn through energy sources faster than most, so ample calories will be needed.

Low-carb, fat-loss focused diets are not recommended here, and in some cases, it may be prudent to recommend that ectomorphic clients even incorporate “mass gainer” nutritional shakes into their diets.

Ectomorphs need high levels of protein too. 1.2 to 1.6 grams per kilogram bodyweight of daily protein has been shown to be optimal for muscle growth, with some individuals requiring up to 2.2.

In short

  • Maximize muscle gain using lower-intensity hypertrophy and maximal strength resistance training with longer rest periods.
  • Consume a high-protein diet with balanced carbs and fats that maintains a positive energy balance.

So there you have it but I could be wrong and it was the milk Eric was drinking that made all the difference.

Do home pregnancy tests using salt actually work?

Nowadays there are many easy and over the counter pregnancy tests that are easy to use, accurate and affordable to use.

But there are other methods that were used in the past before modern pregnancy tests that are classified as more traditional. While their adherents swear by their efficacy, modern medicine doesn’t support the methods as much.

The salt pregnancy test is just one of these many DIY pregnancy tests that are experiencing a resurgence in popularity online.

Here’s how it’s done and whether you should give it a try.

The salt pregnancy test is a do it yourself(DIY) pregnancy test that requires two ingredients: salt and your urine, which you then mix together in a clear, clean bowl.

Those who swear by this test claim that if someone is actually pregnant, the salt will react with a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which enters your bloodstream and urine after an embryo implants in your uterus.

This is also the same hormone that is detected in home pregnancy tests, which you can buy at the chemist.

The procedure

All you have to do is combine a tablespoon or two of salt with a sample of your morning urine and wait a few minutes to a few hours.

If your urine turns “milky” or “cheesy,” then you’re supposedly pregnant. If the mixture doesn’t change appearance, then legend has it that you’re not pregnant.

11 common causes of bleeding during pregnancy you need to know about

But while its proponents might endorse the method saying that hCG will react with salt, causing the mixture to curdle or change texture, there’s no scientific explanation to back it up as there’s zero evidence backing up that theory, and no reason why salt and hCG would cause this reaction.

Conclusion

The pregnancy test with salt is not accurate at all, just as other DIY pregnancy tests aren’t accurate either.

There’s no reliable evidence — either from studies or major medical organizations — to suggest that the salt pregnancy test can accurately tell you if you’re expecting.

And for the women who say it worked for them, they got lucky. Why? There are only two results from a test-either positive or negative, a 50-50 split that can be explained in their results.

Mwanaisha Chidzuga was one of the darlings of Swahili news in her prime. She regaled us with her wit, verve and bubbliness as she delivered the news with consummate professionalism and class.

But that chapter came to a sudden end when she was fired from K24 in October 2019 in a mass axing that left 150 employees redundant.

But while some might have been wallowing, Mwanaisha hit the ground running and bounced back with an option B, her Swahili dishes restaurant, Aryanna Dishes.

Not only that, she officially launched her new show dubbed ‘Dada2DadaUncensored’. While it might have seemed that things were going swimmingly for her, what many didn’t know was that she was going through a tough period.

In a touching Instagram post, the lady who is married to politician Danson Mungantana revealed that she had suffered badly in her 37th year.

Thank you for being my pillar of strength – Mwanaisha Chidzuga’s message to Mungatana

The former news anchor opened up about getting fired, then getting involved in a car accident before becoming a COVID-19 patient.

“Yes I am a survivor of so many things..road accident early this year, Covid 19 that affected my business and myself getting infected but survived too.”

As she turned 38 the mother of 4 said that she still had lessons to take home. “Now I know that I had to go through all that so that I can stand tall today. So BYE Chapter 37. Cheers to Amazing Chapter 38🥂Inshallah. And yes I am aging gracefully and just right. To myself I need to be more kind and take care of myself more,” she sweetly wraps up.

The Do’s and Don’t’s of drinking and serving wine

Many women love to unwind by having a glass of wine.

But before you grab that glass and sip, do you know the etiquette for serving and drinking wine?

Fun facts to know about wine:

  1. Wine is made in virtually every country in the world.
  2. Intense fear or hatred of wine is called “oenophobia.”
  3. All wine is stored at the same temperature, regardless of its color. But reds and whites are consumed at completely different temperatures.
  4. One glass of wine consists of juice from one cluster of grapes.
  5. Red wine can only be made from blue or purple-skinned grapes. White wine can also come from these darker grapes, but only if the juice is separated from the skins.
  6. Rosé, which finds itself somewhere in between red and white, is most often crafted by allowing the juice limited and controlled contact with dark grape skins.

So when handling wine these are some of the Dos and Don’ts:

DOS

  • Consider decanting your wine – The real benefit of the process is that it gently exposes the wine to air, softening its acids and tannin, effectively smoothing out all the sharp edges and wrinkles. It can be particularly helpful in taming the funk that comes off so-called reductive wines.
  • Smell your glass before pouring in your wine – You wouldn’t want the wine fragrance coming in your way over a soapy glass or dust-covered glass. One of the best, most enjoyable parts about drinking wine is appreciating its fragrance.
  • Invest in a good opener – You wouldn’t want chunks of the cork going into your wine bottle.

DON’T’S

  • Serve your red wine too warm – Heat will exacerbate the alcohol content of a wine, making your nose hairs burn when you go in for a big whiff. Conventional wisdom generally dictates that light-to medium-bodied reds should be served around 13–15C, while fuller-bodied reds are better enjoyed in the 15–20C range.
  • Serve your white wines too cold – Why? Because you’ll taste less. Light-bodied, less-aromatic wines should be served colder, in the 4–8C range, whereas more expressive and fuller-bodied whites should ideally be served in the slightly-warmer-but-still technically cold range of 8–10C.
  • Overpour your glass: Seriously, no matter how rough the day. If the glass is too full and you try to do your best professional swirl-and-sniff, chances are you’re going to end up making a mess.
  • Let past-its-prime, open wine go to waste: See if you can’t find a recipe for a stew, or soup or sauce where it can be given a respectable second-chance at life.

Causes of premenstrual symptoms (PMS) and how to fix it

 Feelings of irritability, cravings and fatigue are as common around the time of your period but many don’t know how to deal with premenstrual symptoms

But what you might not know is what is causing your premenstrual symptoms (PMS) and how to deal with it.

Fertility specialist, Dr Nat Kringoudis, believes that stress is one of the major factors that contributes to PMS.

Classy gifts to buy your father this Father’s day to celebrate him

According to Daily Mail Dr Nat  shared the eight ways you can beat or at least relieve symptoms around your time of the month, and the one superfood that will help to balance your hormones.

Writing on her blog, Melbourne-based Dr Kringoudis explained exactly why a hard time at work or home might contribute to your PMS.

‘Stress in the body undermines pretty much every bodily function, and given our reproductive systems are the most sensitive, stress will definitely impact its function,’ she said.

RIP!!!!!Nyamira governor John Nyangarama’s son dies of menengitis

The specialist added that ‘during PMS, that stress can impact our body’s ability to regulate hormones effectively – the additional cortisol and other stress hormones can upset functioning levels of progesterone’.

Progesterone is the ‘feel good’ hormone, and Dr Kringoudis said that when it goes ‘too low, too quickly in our luteal phase, it can feel like PMS is getting the best of us’.

So how can you beat PMS, or at least relieve the symptoms when you’re feeling low?

First, there is one superfood that Dr Kringoudis believes we should all incorporate into our daily regimes: Maca powder.

‘Maca gets the title of a superfood because it delivers on the nutrition front,’ she said. ‘It’s totally full of vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes and amino acids… It’s full of B vitamins, which are good for energy, and magnesium – one of my favourite all-round period fixers.’

Cop Sammy Ngare nominated for Diaspora Awards for his charity work

Next, she said there are eight other things you can do to regulate your hormones and reduce feelings of nausea, bloating and irritability.

‘Drink chamomile tea, as it will help to keep you calm and can also help alleviate cramping associated with menstrual bleeding.’

Dr Kringoudis also recommends loading your plate up with Vegemite, which is ‘loaded with B vitamins which immediately balance out oestrogen and boost the feel good hormones, dopamine and serotonin’.

The eight things you should do to beat PMS

1. Drink chamomile tea.

2. Pull in the reins and go gently.

3. Eat Vegemite.

4. Take some gentle exercise.

5. Prioritise rest.

6. Get some sunshine in.

7. Bathe in lavender oil.

8. Stock up on Maca powder.

‘Ndukulu’ and other Sheng words for marijuana parents should know

 

As a parent, are you happy to have your kid home, or are you worried because they will be under your care?

Well, while most parents are going to be busy at work, their children will be in the estates, engaging with their peers, who are also on holiday, which is a good thing.

 

Bhang plant

 

I spoke to one parent who said although they are happy to have the children back home, these are the most dangerous seasons, as most children are now free and could meet bad people who introduce them to drugs.

 “The boyz and yengz in our estate are not all good?” I said, and the parent asked what I meant.
 As most parents concentrate on speaking English and Kiswahili at home, their children are out there, learning how to abuse drugs. What’s more, they could talk about them and even order them next to you, and you don’t understand what they are saying.
 Take, for example, this phone conversation between your son and maybe his friend. “Bruh! Jana nilikua maji singekam.” Kukua maji sounds simple to understand, but some parents will be baffled.

Parents, here are some Sheng words to pay keen attention to when your children are on holiday.

Image result for weed sheng names

Alcohol in sheng’ has several names, including tei, ndogogio and gauge. Tobacco is referred to as kuber, while bhang’ has the most synonyms such as,weed, ndom, ndukulu, tiree, vela, kush, mbichwa, ombidho, shash, shtundu, blunt, Mary J and ngwai.

Bhang can be in the form of edibles like cookies, chocolates, muffins, gummy bears, mabuyu and even in cakes. Cigarettes are also referred to as fuaka. Kama kawaida, parents kaeni rada, meaning be on the lookout!

Frankie tried to make it easier but I was just pushing him away – Corazon Kwamboka narrates

Yesterday marked Moi Day…ah sorry Huduma Day for Kenyans but in the rest of the world people commemorated World Mental Health Day.

This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health was ‘mental health for all’ and in the spirit of sharing, Corazon Kwamboka decided to share her own story dealing with mental issues.

View this post on Instagram

💝 @genio_sport

A post shared by Lilythegenie (@corazon_kwamboka) on

The curvaceous lawyer spoke about her experience after she gave birth a few months back. You see, it wasn’t easy for her as she suffered from that common post-pregnancy milieu-postnatal depression.

Corazon Kwamboka tells off Kenyan who told her that second wives don’t last

Corazon narrated that she went through some crazy extremes that left her wondering why she was crying uncontrollably without any good reason and often found herself banging on doors unprovoked.

‘I had my baby in August, no one tells you how hard it’s going to be, it was the best moment in my life but it was also the toughest moments for me.’

Corazon stated that the tiniest things would set her off and recalled being triggered by saltless food.  The socialite wrote.

“I found myself crying for no reason, banging doors and throwing myself on the floor, every small thing would trigger me to go nuts, like if the food did not have enough salt. I had such a hard time, Frankie tried, I mean he really tried to make it easier but I was just pushing him away.”

Adding, “One day I started driving in the middle of the night with my baby strapped on his seat. That’s when I realized I was endangering myself and my baby and I needed help.”

She finished off by saying,

“I had been embarrassed to ask for help, embarrassed to admit that I was having a hard time, it took a huge toll on me trying to deal with it alone. I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s okay to be stressed or to have blues. Share with me your hardest moments adjusting as moms.”
