Understand Your Body Better with DEXA Scan

Everyday we wake up and might take a look at the mirror of how we look. And each time I look at myself, I wonder if I look slimmer or maybe gaining some weight. This question is almost on every woman's head when they look at their reflections. When I hear about DEXA Scan, I was intrigued. I've read that DEXA Scan provides Body Composition and Bone Density Scan, which will provide you a very important information about our body. So we can understand better and treat it in the best way possible.

Body Composition
Especially if you are on a weight loss program : DEXA helps you monitor your weight loss progress. An initial baseline scan lets you see exactly whee you are when you start, and then track how much body fat they are actually losing, and how much muscle you are gaining.
Just using scales often hides progress. Dieters combining diet with an exercise program often mistakenly think they are getting minimal results, because they are adding dense muscle at the same time they are losing fat. And dieters on crash diets, are often getting misleading results because they are losing lean muscle and along with fat.
DEXA Scan gives you the most precise information about your body fat, muscle, and bone composition, and lets you track changes in body composition over time. Fitness enthusiasts, athletes, and dieter often use body composition scans to get a baseline of where they are now, and to objectively measure their progress.

Bone Density

Women are 4 times more likely to develop osteoporosis due to their lighter, thinner bones and longer life spans. Statistically being asian or caucasian also puts you at higher risk. Or, if you have a narrow build.
Bone density peaks at age 30 and then decreases over time. This is why it’s important to do strength training, weight bearing exercise and to include enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet.
A Bone Densitometry test is used to measure how strong your bones are. It is commonly used to identify osteoporosis, a condition that causes a decrease in the density of bones resulting in fragility, and to determine a person’s risk for developing fractures. If you’re at risk, talk to your doctor about scheduling a bone density scan.

DEXA is today’s established standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD). If your doctor agrees you’re eligible, your insurance should cover the cost of the scan. Your health care provider will most likely recommend a Central-Machine test, which will scan over your spine, hips or your total body.
For 10 to 20 minutes, you’ll lie still on a table as a wand scans over your body. It’s painless, noninvasive and the radiation is low. You’ll need to schedule a follow up appointment with your doctor after you’ve been scanned to discuss your results.

The DEXA scanner uses two X-ray beams; one high energy and one low energy. It will measure the X-rays that pass through the bone from each beam. This will vary depending on how thick your bone is. Based on the difference between the two beams, the machine determines your bone density. 
I'm really looking forward to try DEXA Scan when it's available in my location. So let's have a healthier live. Not to miss !

Finally Found the Right Backpack for me from Gaston Luga

I always dream of a fashionable adventurist backpack which is a rare thing, because usually adventure means tough material and rough look on the macho side. My active style of traveling demands a balance of power and beauty which I finally found!

This backpack by Gaston Luga is both gorgeous looking and beautifully made yet tough enough to handle all of my traveling needs or my active daily activities as event organizer.

For me Praper - Navy & Brown is the most suitable one. It has a carefully selected combination of leather, metal and canvas. It is silky soft to your touch but uniquely very durable at the same time.

The lock system was design very carefully and precisely for being so easy to use. It's almost a no effort thing to open and close the bag. The size is big enough for being filled with all of my essentials such as my laptop, mirrorless camera, makeup bag, wallet and hat. They're all fit in a very secure way.

I choose the navy and brown color because it's so me, love the combination so much with an added benefit, it's not easy to look dirty. This color is also fit easily with my most used adventures outfits.

The other thing that is very special is this bag is so comfortable to my shoulder. I can carry it all day without having soar feeling on my shoulder.

If you're interested to buy these backpacks, you can buy it from Gaston Luga. Gaston Luga is a Swedish company that provide models for both men and women with optional colors.

One thing for sure when it came to my experience is the shipping was fast, they ship my bag only in about 3-4 days. Gaston Luga use DHL Express or Fedex as their courier service. I was worried at first that it would be an additional customs taxes when it arrived in Indonesia, but I was glad that it was all cleared.

The price for PRAPER backpack that I featured here is USD249.

And for the good news, for my audience, they offer FREE Worldwide shipping +20% OFF Tax rebate + 15% OFF with my code : liza15

For example, if you buy PRAPER - price USD249, you only have to pay USD169,32 after tax deduction and using my code.

It's not cheap but so worth an exclusive offering in my opinion. But one thing for sure, that it looks way more expensive than the price. 
You know me, really my thingy.

Black-Black is My Color

Hi everyone
Today I would like to share my impression of Uncle Jack Watches. In my opinion, watches nowadays are not only for telling about the time but mostly as an accessories to express our style. That's why I choose Uncle Jack as my arm candy because I love the unique look and the natural - fashionable style.

Uncle Jack Watches In a Glance
Uncle Jack is an Australian-based brand of watch. They create unisex watches with a Fresh, Modern and Unique style.

What I like about this Uncle Jack Watches

My personal favorite is the modern stylish Black-Black watch. It has black stainless steel case which I love, because it looks simply minimalist with a contemporary look. What I do love the most is the 42mm case size with a bit of masculine touch because of the big size. I'm always a fan of the wide case size to show more the aesthetic of that watch, so people can also enjoy the fabulous design easily. It gives me that 'tomboy' feeling while still being girly.

 The second thing that I love about this watch is the black strap that is made by high quality genuine leather. This Black-Black has a wide strap which is so flexible on your wrist that you will feel comfortable wearing this watch all day long. The beautiful combination of stainless steel case and black strap makes this Black-Black so perfect as an everyday watch. It really creates a very cool fashionable appearance for both the casual and the formal styles.

 Black-Black is one of Uncle Jack Watches's Best Sellers. You could browse their other best sellers here.

It's not often that I find such a comfortable watch for all venues. This is one of that rare opportunity to enjoy a beautifully made with a very reasonable price that could be within everyone's range.
I've experienced a way more pricier watch with less quality and not as cool looking design.

This Black-Black watch can simply represent the most bank for the bucks which is ideal for your personal collection or as a gift for your loved ones. I really recommend this beauty to all watch lover.
This one is truly a gem!
