Long slow distance is running at a moderate pace in which you can carry on a conversation and in which you aren’t grasping for a breath. Running LSD means that you’re using moderation in your training and not pushing your body to extreme stress levels.
I’m addicted to long slow distance running. For me it’s the time to enter into a deep state of meditation and contemplation, a time to let the dust settle and gather my thoughts. I can head to the woods knowing without a shadow of a doubt that I’ll be a different person when I’m finished. LSD run is one of the best psychological healers I have ever known.
Long distance running: the key to developing aerobic resistance
While many workouts are aimed at improving speed and strength- the long slow distance run is intended to Buy MDMA Ecstasy Online do just one thing: to develop aerobic resistance. This aerobic resistance developed by long slow runs is the fundamental building block on which your ability to run long distance at a sustained pace is built. The long run is also a perfect opportunity to spend lots of time working on your running form. And keep relaxing your body at the same time.
And with longer runs, you are using the stored glycogen in your muscles, but at a certain point, this runs out and the muscles start to use fat as fuel. So LSD trains your muscles to burn fat more efficiently, which is good for the body – especially if you are carrying some extra pounds.
How long LSD run should be?
As long as you want, given your current physical condition. If you are beginner runner, your long slow distance run might be nothing more than 30 or 40 minutes per session. I have been running for a while, my LSD run ranges from 2 hours to 3 hours. Your long run should not be so long as to leave you wiped out. You should end your run feeling pleasantly tired.
One thing I’ve found to make a huge difference in the first messages you write when online dating, and your responses from them, is being in a good mood when you go online. Women are crazy like that…they just have a sixth sense when it comes to knowing what is going on with you…even if it’s through the internet. Of course the better the mood you’re in, the better your ideas will be when it comes to what you’re writing in your first email to a woman. Now I’ve discovered when I’m in these types of upbeat states many things happen while browsing my favorite online dating site.
For one thing I come up with better messages to send to women at a much faster rate. Good emails just come to me a lot of times. For another, I find it easier to let some of the potentially frustrating things roll off my back; like women who list 8000 pet peeves in their profile, or tell me they like going to the movies AND blockbuster nights in their profile. Yeah, like I’ve never heard that one before!
This isn’t to say of course that a good message xanax online will always get a response. There are way too many other factors involved in getting a response besides your message, some within your control and some not.
A lot of times women meet a man they’re interested in, but keep their profile up just in case it doesn’t work out. In the meantime, they just don’t respond to anybody. Other times they get fed up with the ton of perverted sexual requests they get.
However I think being in a good mood and writing messages could get you four or five messages out of ten. Compare that to getting none, or one if you’re lucky, if you’re just sending silly messages she will never respond to.
I wish I had a magic pill that could make you in a great mood all the time. Of course there’s always Xanax, but I wouldn’t recommend that route.
Very few of us are in a good mood all the time, and the few that are can probably be found off meditating in a cave somewhere in India. So it’s OK if you’re not always Mr. Upbeat.
I think it’s a great strategy though to send the majority of your emails to women on dating sites when you are in these positive moods. If you do I’m confident you’ll spend more of your time responding to a first reply from a woman than you were before…
…and I bet that will extend the period of time you’re in that good mood.

Relocating from one place to another is always a very stressful and expensive experience with all the packing and handling. That’s where the moving companies come in. These companies not only provide services in the relocation of homes, but also businesses and international moving.
Choosing a moving company isn’t easy. When relocating, there are a number of things one has to keep in mind when deciding on a company. The safety of items is an extremely important factor which is why an unreliable set of movers is not a good choice. The higher the quality of the service, the more money you pay for it. These moving companies also provide tips on how to start packing belongings at home by providing packing boxes for items like paintings and china. Pianos and grandfather clocks are usually moved by professionals with special trolleys that umzughilfe ensure there are no damages to the finish or excessive force being applied to the item. They also give tips to pack using labels, cartons, plastic bags, etc so it is easier to unpack when you reach the new location.
Moving companies offer various solutions to transporting your belongings to the new place. Some companies provide full service including packing and transport. Some provide truck and equipment services where the customer does the packing themselves. There are also companies which provide movers which provide the physical labor services of moving heavy objects. In the past few years, most people order a container, and once the container is packed, it is moved to its destination place. The services by moving company are far less expensive compared to those companies which offer full service. The only difference is that the responsibility of damages falls on the customer in the former case from improper packing or loading. The carrier is liable for damages only in the case of traffic accidents.
The price estimates depend on what kind of moving it is depending on whether it is intrastate, interstate or international together with the mode of transport being used for the moving; via road, airplane or ship. For moving locally, the cost depends on the number of hours it takes to move the items while for moving over long distances, the cost is determined by the distance and the size or weight or size of the items to be moved.
People move during all times of the year but it is during spring and early summer when moving traffic is at its peak. People who plan to move should be careful in choosing the moving company of their choice in order to avoid moving scams. Choosing the right, reliable moving company is also a dilemma for most people because if precautions are not taken, it can turn into a complete nightmare. Legitimate moving companies are licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) which is a part of the Federal Department of Transportation (DOT).
People that follow my stuff know I generally write about nutrition, supplements, training, and other topics that are more science based than subjective topics, such as what is covered in this article. I decided to shuck my science geek persona, and write on a topic I know will be helpful to thousands of would be and want to be fitness models.
As well a known “hard core” science based no BS writer, why I am writing what some will perceive as a “fluff” article? Over the years I have gotten hundreds, perhaps thousands, of gals that ask me via email, letters, or in person “how do I become a fitness model Will? You have been in the business a long time, surly you of all people should know.” I get this from newbies and I get this from women that have been at it a while but have been unable to “break in” effectively.
The fact is, I have been in the fitness, health, and bodybuilding biz a long time, and though I am known as a science and nutrition based “guru” type, I have trained many a fitness athlete, and judged fitness and figure/bikini shows for the NPC, Fitness America, Fitness USA, and other federations as well as given marketing and business advice to all sorts of athletes, including fitness models. So, it’s not as far fetched as it might seem that I am going to use this space to cover a non scientific topic, which is, how one goes about being a fitness model. happy hemp cbd gummies
This article will be useful to both experienced and novice types looking to “break in” to the biz. If you are already a professional and successful fitness model, I am sure you may still glean some useful information from this article.
First the bad news, there is no one way to become a successful fitness model. There is no single path or magic secret. There are however some key things a person can do to greatly improve their chances of “making it” in the fitness biz as a model, and perhaps using that success as a launching pad to greater things, such as movies, TV, etc.
Several of the top fitness models (Trish Stratus and Vicki Pratt come to mind but there are many others) have gone onto careers in entertainment of all kinds. Bottom line, though there is no magic secret to being successful as a fitness model, this article will be about as close to a blueprint for success as you will find.
“Do I need to compete?”
This is a question I get asked all the time and it’s not an easy one to answer. In fact, the answer is (drum roll) yes and no. The person has to deicide why they are competing in the first place to answer that question. For example, do you need to compete if your goal is to be a successful fitness model?
The answer is no. Many of today’s well-known fitness models have never competed, or they competed in a few small shows and it was clearly not part of their success as fitness models. However, competing does have its potential uses.
One of them is exposure. At the upper level shows, there will often be editors, publishers, photographers, supplement company owners, and other business people. So, competing can improve your exposure. Also, competing can make sense if you are trying to build a business that is related to your competing or will benefit from you winning a show.
For example, say you have a private training gym you are trying to build. Sure, having the title of say Ms Fitness America, or winning the happy hemp cbd gummies NPC Nationals and being an IFBB pro, will help your reputation and the notoriety of your business. There are many scenarios were it would help to have won a show for a business or other endeavors.
On the other hand, it must be realized that winning a show does not in any way guarantee success in the business end (and it really is a business) of being a fitness model. The phone wont ring off the hook with big offers for contracts. Also, it’s very important to realize that it’s common that the 4th or 6th or 8th place finisher in a fitness or figure show will get more press than the winner. Why? Though the winner might have what it took to win that show, it’s often other gals the editor, publishers, supplement companies etc, feel is more marketable.
I have seen it many times where the winner was shocked to find she didn’t get nearly the attention she expected and other girls who placed lower have gotten attention in the form of photos shoots, magazine coverage, etc. Something to keep in mind when you ask yourself the important question “do I need to compete and if so, why am I competing?” Answer that question, and you will know the answer to the heading of this section. Winning a title of some sort can be a stepping stone, but it is not in itself any guarantee of success in the fitness industry. It’s like a college degree; it’s what you do with it.
Now. If you compete for the fun of it, then by all means go for it, but the above is focusing on competing as it relates to the business aspect of being a fitness model.
Right body, wrong federation?
Ok, so after reading the above you have decided you are going to compete, or will compete again. If you don’t plan to compete, you can skip this section. The biggest mistake I see here is so many gals have the right body for the wrong federation. Each federation has its own judging criteria and a competitor will do poorly simply because they didn’t bother to research which show would be best suited for them.
I will give you a perfect real world example of this. Recently I judged a show whose criteria for the figure round was the women should be more on the curvy softer side with some tone, vs. being more muscular and athletic with less bodyfat that other federations might allow. At this show one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen came out. She was very proportional, great muscle tone, lean, and athletically shaped with narrow hips and waist and wider shoulders. How did she do at this show? She didn’t even place in the top ten!
Why? Because she was not what we were instructed to look for and didn’t fit the criteria. After the show I informed her that she looked great, but this may not the federation for her. I told her she had much more of an NPC type body, where a little more muscle, athletic build, and less bodyfat is rewarded.
The following week I was judging an NPC fitness, figure, and bodybuilding show and there she was. How did she do? She won the entire show with all judges voting her number one unanimously.
Conversely, if your body type tends to be more rounded and toned, but with a little more bodyfat, wider (but not fat!) hips, you may be better off competing in say the Fitness America Pageants. If you are going to compete:
(1) find out exactly what the judging criteria is for that federation and
(2) go see those shows as a spectator for several different federations and see which one your physique, style, etc will fit into best.
(3) You have to decide if you truly have the athletic abilities to compete in a fitness competition (which requires a routine) or a figure/bikini competition.
I often see women who would do well in a figure show but really don’t have the athletic abilities do the routines required to be competitive with other athletes in the show. Some shows will allow you to do both competitions and some wont.
Networking 101: dos and don’ts…
In so many respects, this is the area that will make or break you in any business, and yet, people in the fitness industry do an amazingly poor job at it. If you don’t network and market yourself properly, you can pretty much forget about having any real success as a fitness model, or a success in virtually any business. For the sake of space, we will stick to fitness.
When I first started out, I was a self marketing machine. I could be found at every show I thought might be an opportunity, walking the isles of trade shows, bodybuilding, shows, fitness show, and others. I gave out a zillion cards and I took a million home with me, and followed up on each and every one. I went to as many industry related meetings, outings, parties, etc. as I could get into. I now have the reputation and experience in the industry that I don’t have to go to such a show unless I feel like it, or have meetings, but they were quite helpful in the beginning.
I am always amazed at the number of fitness models who contact me who have never even been to the Arnold Classic Fitness Weekend, or the Mr. Olympia, or the trade shows like the NNFA Expo West and others. If you want to make it in the fitness business you sure as hell had better treat it like a business.
I have seen many a pretty girl who wants to be a fitness model who thinks if they stand there looking pretty long enough, someone is going to offer to put their face on the cover of a magazine. News flash, there are millions of beautiful women out there and to be noticed, you have to hussle to get that business like everyone else by networking your butt off, or having a good agent (if you can afford such a thing) who is doing it for you.
Pick a few major industry shows to attend (some of which were mentioned above) and go to them every year. Have a plan of attack of exactly how you plan to market yourself and network. Many fitness models, bodybuilders, etc see a show as one big party. If that’s you, then have fun at the party, but don’t think you are really marketing yourself as a serous business person or athlete.
Another thing that always amazes me is the number of fitness models who either have no business cards, or have some cards they printed up on their bubble jet printer at home! They ask me to help them or what ever and I say “give me your card” and they look at me like “I am so pretty I should not need a card you fool.” This attitude turns off editors, photographers, writers, and industry people faster then if they found out you were really a transvestite. Don’t do it. For every pretty girl out there who thinks the world owes them a favor, there are 100 who are ready to act like professionals.
Ever wonder why some fitness model you know is doing better than you are even though you know you are prettier than her? That may be why…never ever go to a show to network without good cards, bios, and professionally done head and body shots you can give to said editors, publishers, photographers, industry types, etc. Don’t stand around looking pretty assuming they will find you, find them first and introduce yourself. And of course it should go without saying you should be in good condition and have something of a tan to look your best.
You want to go to the shows and party? Fine, but do it in private after the work is done and don’t make a fool out of yourself at some industry sponsored get together. Hell, I was virtually poured into a cab at last years Arnold Classic after going to a sushi place with some well know industry types and companies owners (you know who you are!) but at least no one saw me! We had our own little private get together after the show to let loose.
Let me give you one final real world example of how NOT to market yourself. Last year I was on retainer as a consultant to a mid sized supplement company. The owner of the company asked me if I knew a couple of fitness model types that could work his booth for a trade show. In fact, he requested “unknowns, some new faces people had not seen yet but had real potential to grow with the company.” I went and found him two such gals I thought fit the bill.
He offered to pay their flights, room, and food plus a thousand dollars each for the days work. The two girls were told to be at the booth 9am sharp. The night before at the hotel, I saw the two girls getting in a cab at 11pm or so dressed to kill, clearly on their way out to party. The next day they showed up at the booth an hour and a half late and hung over! What was the result of this? (1) it embarrassed me to no end as I had recommended them to the company owner (2) they would never get work from that company again (3) they would never get any work from me again and (4) they would not get a reference from either of us for other jobs.
I see this type of thing all the time in the fitness biz, and it’s not limited to fitness models. Amazingly, a few weeks after the show they emailed me and the company owner wanting to know when their next job would be! Amazing…
Who loves you baby?
If there is one universal truth, it’s that the camera either loves you or it does not. Any professional photographers will tell you this. For some unknown reason, some people are very photogenic and some are not. Truth be known, there are some well known fitness models (who shall remain nameless as they would probably smack me the next time they saw me) who are not all that attractive in person. It’s just that the camera loves them and they are very photogenic, but not terribly pretty in person.
Conversely, I have seen the reverse many times; a girl who is much better looking in person than in photographs. Such is the fate of the person who wants to be a model of any kind, including a fitness model. If you find you are not very photogenic, keep working with different photographers until you find one that really captures you well and pay that photographer handsomely!
Now, to be bluntly honest, there are also some want to be fitness models who are not “unphotogenic”, they’re just “fugly”! There are some people out there who have no business trying to be fitness models. It does not make them bad people, it just means they need to snap out of their delusions and find a profession they are better suited for, like radio personality….
“How do I get in the magazines?”
This section sort of incorporates everything I have covered above, and adds in a few additional strategies. For example, as I mentioned before, competing in fitness shows and or figure/bikini shows can increase your exposure, thus getting the attention of some magazine publisher or photographer. Networking correctly at the various trade shows may also have the same effect, and of course having a good portfolio done by a photographer that really captures your look, a good web site, etc., will all increase your potential for getting into the magazines, or getting ad work, and so on.
However, all of these strategies are still somewhat passive versus active in my opinion. It’s still the fitness model waiting to be “discovered.” As far as I am concerned, waiting is for bus stops and pregnancy tests. Success waits for no man…or woman as the case me be. So, after all the above advice is taken into consideration as having an added effect to getting you magazine coverage, what else can be done?
For one thing, you should read and be familiar with all the magazines you want to be in so you know who is who and what the style of the different magazines are. I can tell you right now, if say the Editor-in-Chief of a good sized fitness or bodybuilding publications and says “hi, I am the Bob Smith what’s your name?” and the fitness model has no idea who Bob Smith is, Bob will not take kindly to that. Why should he? You should know who the major players are in the publications you want to be seen in. He is doing you the favor, not the other way around. You should know who the major players are and actively seek them out, don’t wait for them to “discover” you.
If you look at the masthead inside any magazine, it will tell you who the publisher is, who the Editor-in-Chief is and so forth. The mailing address for that magazine, and often the web site and email, can also be found. What is to stop you from looking up those names and mailing them your pictures and resume directly? Nothing, that’s what. If you see a photo spread you think is really well done, what is to stop you from finding out who the photographer is and contacting them directly and sending them your pics? Nothing, that’s what.
My point being, you want a get a break in the business, make the break, don’t sit there thinking it’s looking for you, because it’s not. Be proactive, not reactive! Luck is the residue of design. Be successful by design. As my older brother used to say to me as a kid when I told him I was too scared to ask out a pretty girl “what’s the worst that can happen Will? All she can say is no.” That’s the worst that can happen to you also.
Beware of web idiots, schlubs, morons, perverts, scum bags, and sleazoids!
This part is sort of self-explanatory but worth mentioning. As with all industries that deal in entertainment based media (e.g., television, theater, modeling, etc.), the fitness industry attracts its far share of web idiots, schlubs, morons, perverts, scum bags, and sleazoids, to name just a few.
There is also the class of person known as the schmoe, but we will leave that for another place and time. Point is you want to meet the right people while not getting involved with that group of worthless types who will only drag you down, delay you, or just flat out screw you up and over.
For example, a guy comes up and says he wants to “shoot you” for the magazines, but what do you really know of this guy? He has a camera and some business cards, so that makes him a photographer right? Wrong! If someone want to shoot you and they are not a well-known name (and you should know who the well known photographers are because you researched that already!), find out who they are. Do they have references you can call? Girls you can contact he has shot before and were happy with the work? Discount Code What magazines has he published in? Does he do it professionally or as a hobby? That type of thing.
Another thing I see is the big web scam. I’m amazed how many girls get scammed by these web idiots. Lesson here is you get what you pay for, so when some person wants to build you a web site for free, you are getting what you pay for. Yes, there is good money to be made on the ‘net, and the net can be great for marketing yourself and making contacts, but most of it’s a scam.
You are better off paying a good web designer and web master who has experience with other fitness model types and has references you can talk to. I can’t tell you the number of girls who have been screwed over by some internet thing that went to hell, like the “fan” who volunteers to build a free web site and either runs off with any money made from the site or puts their picks on porn sites and any number of other things that made them regret like hell ever agreeing to the site in the first place.
Clearly, I can’t go down the list of all the possible pitfalls of the web idiots, schlubs, morons, perverts, scum bags, and sleazoids out there to be found in the entertainment business, but you get the idea. Be careful!
Well that pretty much concludes my down and dirty guide to the basics of “making it” as a fitness model. Of course there are tons of business related issues I could cover and tricks I could give, but the above is the best advice you are going to find in s small space and will do more for you-if properly followed-than you may realize.
It’s funny how if we give just a little something extra, we make a lot more sales. Let me explain…
The other day, a friend who recently returned to grad school for an advanced degree wrote on Facebook that she “has spent longer on Amazon trying to find $2.03 worth of something to bump her up to free shipping than she did buying all her books for the semester.”
The sad part is that not long ago, I was doing precisely the same thing. Truth be told, I don’t even remember what item I was buying on Amazon, but I remember spending far too much time trying to find something to bump me over that magical $25 threshold that would allow me free shipping. Eventually, I found it: some Japanese gummy candy. The funny thing is that the gummy candy cost me more than the price of shipping, and I never would have purchased that gummy candy if it weren’t for Amazon offering the free shipping. where to buy hemp bombs cbd gummies
But this shows just how powerful it is to offer a little something extra. By simply offering me a little something extra (free shipping), Amazon got me to pay more for something that I never would have bought otherwise. And sure enough, they made more sales off of me as a result of it.
So, what are some nice little extras that you can add with sales of your product or service?
Can you offer free shipping with your sales? Can you offer an unconditional money-back guarantee? Can you offer individualized, personalized attention? Can you offer services to a very specific client type or segment? Can you offer additional, complementary products or services (e.g., a handbook that helps the client get the most out of a new product they just bought)? Can you create a special club and give your clients membership to it? Can you offer after-the-sale support or consultation?
Whatever you offer as a free bonus when prospects purchase your product or service, it will go a long way in attracting sales from new clients. These free little extras will pay for themselves many times over. Not only will people want the extras that you offer, but these extras will also differentiate you from other salespeople, giving people a reason to give you their sales instead of any number of other salespeople out there.
As you consider what bonuses you can offer to make your sales soar, let me just offer you one last caution: sometimes even if you do offer something as a bonus, where can you buy cbd gummies in anderson, sc your clients won’t perceive it as a bonus.
A simple example: consider the numerous airlines that you can purchase a flight from. All of them offer you frequent flier miles, but do you consider that a bonus?
Likely not. The reason is that you’re expecting your frequent flier miles! All the airlines offer frequent flier miles, and it’s not really special when an airline gives you your miles. The frequent flier miles are not something airlines give you over and beyond what you already expect.
Make sure that if you’re providing a little something extra, it genuinely is something that your competitors cannot or will not offer. Make it something that your prospects don’t expect, make it something special to them, and they will return the favor by giving you lots of sales.

Thousands of people buy engagement rings online every year. Mainly because of the savings, numerous options and expanded inventory that online jewelry stores provide to their shoppers. But many women, married or not, wear diamond rings as a fashion accessory. engagement ring So how do you shop for an item that’s made of non-certified stones, 1,000’s of different designs and no way to try on any of the styles you are interested in?
Here are a few steps you can take to insure you find and buy exactly what you are looking for:
1. You should try to have an idea of the type of diamond ring you are looking for. Cluster rings, eternity rings, solitaire rings, three-stone rings and various designer rings come in many different styles. The better image you have in your mind of what you are looking for, the easier and faster it will be for you to browse through different jewelry sites and find your perfect ring.
2. Once you find a ring you are interested in, make sure you view alternate images that show the underbelly of the ring, the shaft of the ring and most importantly the diamonds in the ring. These are critical design elements that will give you an idea of how well the ring has been constructed, how the diamonds are set in the ring and the overall style and appeal the ring has.
3. Dig into the details:
o clarity and color of the diamonds used in the ring (If the don’t list color and clarity, don’t buy it. They could be selling you anything. If the color and clarity is too general (i.e. SI clarity, no color) don’t buy it. If they give you a wide range of color and clarity (i.e. SI1 – VS2, F – H color) don’t buy it. Diamond clarity and color ranges should stay within the same range (i.e. SI1-SI2, E/F color).
o gold quality (don’t buy anything less than 14k unless you absolutely have to because of budget constraints).
o any good jewelry website will have a ring sizer that you can download, print and use to insure proper fitting. Rings sizes are standard within the industry. It’s not like jean sizes where you have some variation between brands or designers. A size 7 ring from one designer to the next should be almost identical.
4. Check site policies, gold / diamond quality guarantees and return policies before you buy. Most sites will give you between 15 – 30 days for a return, unless you customize the ring, in which case you will not be eligible for a return. There are not many stores that will guarantee the quality of their diamonds in jewelry that does not use certified stones, but the few that are will say as much.
If you follow these steps, remain patient and do your research, you can find some excellent diamond rings jewelry online and at great prices.
There are only two main sites that users can choose from to play daily fantasy, DraftKings and FanDuel. Both sites share similarities but at the same time are drastically different. Both are similar in popularity and have been around since the beginning of daily fantasy sports. 토토사이트 Both sites offer hundreds of contests and pay out millions of dollars every day. The sites pay out at an identical rate and the contests offer the same rewards on both sites. So how do you choose which one to use?
The answer is pretty simple; try both of them out and choose which one you like more. Both sites will pay out the same. So, profitability and your chances of winning are basically undistinguishable between the two. The difference between the sites is how you build your lineup for your daily contests. For example, in daily NBA contests, on DraftKings you choose eight players and on FanDuel you choose nine players. DraftKings gives you a salary cap of $50,000, allowing you to choose eight players with combined salaries of $50,000 or less. On FanDuel, you have a $60,000 salary cap to choose nine players to fit into your lineup. Salaries of each player are different on each site. A popular opinion is that you can have more superstars or more higher salaried players on FanDuel because of the higher salary cap. This may be true, but everyone else you are competing against also gets more superstars or better players so it does not really make a difference.
FanDuel’s lineups are constructed of two point guards, two shooting guards, two small forwards, two power forwards, but only one center. DraftKings’ lineups are constructed of one of each of the five positions (PG, SG, SF, PF, C) and then one guard, so you must choose a point or shooting guard, one forward, either a small or power forward, and then finally a “Utility” player (this mean you can choose any player at any position) So the main difference between the sites is the strategy you use to construct your lineups. I suggest going and playing around on both sites and seeing which one you like better.
I would suggest choosing one site and playing that one only, not both. The strategies are different for both sites so once you choose you will want to stick with one and perfect your own strategy of building daily lineups. Bouncing back and fourth between sites will just be more challenging and require more time and research. Once you figure out which site you want to use, use it everyday and perfect your own strategy. The more times you play and the more experience you gain in creating lineups, the better you will become. There is a skill in building these lineups daily and with all skills you have to practice them to get better.
In the past, consumers all over the world were at risk of picking up all sorts of food-borne illnesses purely because there was no legitimate and effective food safety management system in place. But that has all changed with the implementation of the HACCP.
Formulated for NASA’s astronauts
The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) was formulated in the 1970’s in an effort to supply food that was totally safe 먹튀검증 and untainted by pathogens or bacteria to the men on the outer limits of space – NASA’s astronauts.
With the hefty clout of both NASA and the US Army behind it, HACCP quickly developed into the preferred food safety mechanism the world over and, today, virtually every country on the planet prescribes to the principles of this proactive system.
Food safety was traditionally reactive
Food manufacturers, from the farm to the fork, traditionally used to rely on end product testing, snapshot inspections of compliance by the relevant governmental bodies and the simplicity of ‘shelf life’ to determine food safety.
Once a problem was pinpointed, the industry would react. The food safety process was therefore simply a reactive one that, in effect, was merely closing the stable door once the horse had already bolted…and kicked a number of hapless victims in the head on its way out!
The simple steps of HACCP
Through a process of steps, the HACCP simply
* Identifies all significant hazards associated with a specific food production and looks at effective ways of controlling these risks
* Determines the critical control points (CCP)where these hazards can either be effectively controlled or totally eliminated
* Sets up systems to monitor these CCPs
* Establishes relevant corrective activities, if necessary
* Establishes verification procedures to confirm that the HACCP system is being properly implemented
* Implements a system of record-keeping, including sanitation logs, shipping documentation and supplier agreements so that the entire food process can be followed and scrutinised.
Each industry will have different identifiable hazards, critical control points and effective procedures to deal with its specific hazards. So each industry has its own dedicated food safety system that simply follows the procedures laid out by the HACCP system.
Only HACCP-approved chemicals and industrial cleaning equipment will suffice for this mandatory process, with hot high-pressure cleaners, steam cleaners and other specialist equipment earmarked to do the job.
Thankfully, the consumer can now rest a little easier in the knowledge that the food processing sector is being properly managed and controlled by an effective and proactive food safety management system – in short, the pre-emptive power of HACCP.
