Bishop Oyedepo’s Wise Counsel On INSULTS

The founder of Winners Chapel said:

Don’t get angry because you’re insulted. I was insulted by other pastors on National Tv for 7 years but I was too busy forging ahead and getting bigger.

Someone asked if we should settle the fight; I said there was no fight. If one boxer enters the ring and there is no opponent, he will go home.

7 Foods You Think Are Healthy But Actually Aren’t

Unhealthy foods are one of the major reasons people fall sick, gain an alarming amount of weight and have weight gain issues. Jumia Travel shares 7 foods you think are healthy but actually aren’t. Please don’t be fooled by these misleading healthy foods…

Diet Soda
Drinking soda often, increases your risk of heart attack, stroke and prostate cancer; it also makes you eat more which can lead to obesity. You would think diet soda is better but it’s potentially worse. The artificial sweeteners in diet soda fool your body into thinking you’re eating real food, disrupts the body’s natural ability to regulate calorie intake and cause a spike in your insulin levels (because these sweeteners are actually much sweeter than actual sugar) which can lead to obesity, diabetes and heart problems.

Packaged Meat
Packaged meats are usually loaded with salt and preservatives, as a result they are basically a well-packaged sodium-saturated disaster. It’s best to avoid them and opt for fresh meat. However, if you need to buy packaged meat choose brands that don’t have more than 350mg of sodium per 2 oz serving.
