There’s a very simple formula for losing weight. The total number of calories you consume from eating must just be less than the total number of calories you burn living and exercise. However, the problem with this is you need to eat enough to feel full so you don’t eat too much. Therefore, there are two key things to focus on when deciding what to eat:
To understand energy (calorie) density, look at the picture below. Both desserts have the same amount of energy (calories) but the one on the left is heavier and contains more mass (grams) which would make you feel full longer.

When you’re testing or developing a simple HTML-based website, you don’t need to go through the hassle of installing and configuring Apache or some other server. Following are two simple options:
If you’re on a Mac, then Python is probably already installed and you can just start up the server from the folder containing your website files using the command: python -m SimpleHTTPServer. If you’re on Windows, you can download Python and then run the command. Detailed instructions can be found on Mozilla’s website.
BrowserSync is another option that has the added benefit that it watches changes to your website files and if it detects a change, it’ll reload the browser for you.

If you want to learn a language, you will probably feel overwhelmed as there is a lot to understand and memorize and there are many different approaches to learning. Below is one approach that I’d argue makes sense and will allow you to be able to communicate as soon as possible.
Grammar is like a language’s formula. Understanding a language’s grammar will allow you to understand a language’s structure and build words and sentences based on a particular formula. There are many grammar resources available and you simply need to find one that you like.
When it comes to building your vocabulary, you don’t want to overwhelm yourself with thick vocabulary books as that will be discouraging and non necessarily useful. Instead, it’s more useful to initially focus on a language’s most popular words. For English, following are the most popular words grouped by part of speech.
Once you’ve reached this step, you can proceed to reading dialogues and essays. Reading dialogues is important because when you speak to people, you are having a dialogue with them. Reading essays such as short stories is also important because when you communicate with people, you will often be telling a story, whether written or verbal. One online resource that contains thousands of dialogues and essays is Zabuun.
