first_imgEx-Liverpool No1 James a fan of Man Utd keeper Romeroby Paul Vegas7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Liverpool goalkeeper David James admits he’s a fan of Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.Romero is expected to replace United No 1 David de Gea in goal for Sunday’s clash against rivals Liverpool after the Spaniard picked up an injury while on international duty.”I’ve analysed him and there are a few keepers who are highly-rated who just put the ball out there in a general area. But he’s as good as Ederson and Alisson using his left foot and right foot,” James told Goal.”David de Gea is, of course, the No 1, but I looked at Romero when Manchester United bought him and I was amazed at how good the guy is with his feet – then I saw an improvement in De Gea.”What you tend to find is when you’ve got two keepers or two players training with each other day in, day out, you start picking up positive habits from the other player.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Myths around coconut oil busted

first_imgIf consumed in moderation and accompanied by a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, coconut oil is great for the body, skin and hair, say experts. Myth: Coconut oil causes heart diseaseFact: Coconut oil is as far as possible from being harmful to your heart’s health. The reason this myth was perpetuated was because of its large percentage of saturated fat. Advanced research has proved that naturally occurring fats don’t damage your heart. Instead processed foods and those containing large quantities of refined sugars and high fructose corn syrup are making heart troubles widespread. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfMyth: It tastes coconutyFact: Coconut oil comes in two variants: Refined and virgin/cold pressed – and not all varieties have a coconuty flavour. Refined coconut oil has literally no taste or odour, these are often refined, bleached, and deodorised so that they can be consumed easily.However, hydrogenated coconut oil should be avoided at all costs as the process can create synthetic trans-fats. Go for coconut oil that has been refined using a natural and chemical-free process. And if a slight coconut flavour in your food doesn’t make it unpalatable for you then opt for the virgin variety. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveMyth: Coconut oil has high cholesterolFact: Coconut oil is made up of medium-chain triglycerides which are a super fuel used up by our bodies very efficiently. In fact, they contribute towards a better cholesterol profile. This means that either your overall cholesterol levels go down or your good cholesterol levels go up on substantial consumption. It’s the ratio of your total cholesterol to your good cholesterol that determines how healthy you really are.last_img read more
