Lets Have Fun with Food

Diet Facts

A diet is a weigh of life.

It's not the minutes spent at the table that put on weight, it's the seconds.

It's something most of us do religiously: We eat what we want and pray we don't gain weight.

The problem with curbing our appetites is that most of us do it at the drive in window of McDonalds.

The most fattening thing you can put in an ice cream sundae is a spoon.

The biggest drawback to fasting for seven days is that it makes one weak.

Sweets are the destiny that shapes our ends.

Diets are for people who are thick and tired of it.

The toughest part of a diet isn't watching what you eat. It's watching what other people eat.

Diets are for women who not only kept their girlish figure bit doubled it.

A diet is when you have to go to some length to change your width.

I hope you had a belly laugh

How to Tame Temptation

Hello, its Monday again and there was the temptation to cheat this weekend with the wrong foods. I don't eat out much but when I do I look at all the yummy fattening foods. I turn into this sinful person.
Consider eating a soup for your starter instead of a salad. The soup makes my fuller and then I don't want fries or a heavy meal for my main meal. Make sure you don't have the bread with your soup either.
This is fun. Make up your own menu of the healthiest food from the restaurant menu of your favorite place to eat. Then you choose from the menu that works for you.

Here's to the carrots, celery that we can stay sleek and sexy

How to keep the Stomach Flat

How, is to keep that colon cleaned out. I have been taking the flush pills in the core4nutrition package and at one point I stopped because I thought, there cant be anymore back up. Well a couple of days goes past and I notice my stomach getting a little bloated, so that evening I took one of the flush pills.
Yes the next day after a few trips to the bathroom my bloating had gone down. Its remarkable when I eat a fairly good diet that my system is not working at its full potential.
So take care of the colon and it will take care of your bloating.

Have a fun, fabulous weekend.

This Will Blow Your Mind

First she talked about a few of the body’s different systems and how they
worked. Then she gave a visual demonstration of the digestive system using a
nylon stocking to represent the colon.With an apron and some latex gloves on, she began cramming the average American diet into the “large intestine.” Hamburgers, fries, a can of Dinty Moore, a jelly donut… even some Coke and a milkshake. Almost immediately the
stocking began to clog up as the food clumped together and stuck to the sides. It
looked like a boa constrictor that had just swallowed an animal three times its
own width. In order to get it to pass through she had to constantly work it and
knead it with her hands.
It wasn’t a pretty picture – enough to scare anyone into giving up fast food
forever. And a lot of people did.
Then she started over with a brand-new, fresh stocking (if only it was that easy,
right?). This time she began dumping apple slices, grapes, pineapple chunks,
carrots, celery and all kinds of other fruits and vegetables down the tube. They all
slid right through without a single hangup.

Time To Sell The Gym Equipment

I remember when I had a residential cleaning business and the amount of houses I went into that exercise equipment holding the laundry!!! Have any of that going on in your house?
Is the time or the commitment or the distraction of living at home that stops you from using it? Well a couple of years ago I came across someone who has put a 4 minute workout together. Now he has about 12 different 4 min work outs on the DVD. You may think to your self well what good is 4 mins going to do. Let me tell you I could hardly walk into the next room after finishing one of them. It is powerful and such little time commitment. Quatro Fitness is the name of the company. Look them up on line. Combine this with a good eating plan and the cheat and flush from www.core4nutrition.com and what a body.

Have a wonderful healthy day

Healthy Shopping

  • Fresh vegetables and fruits should make up the largest part of your healthy foods grocery list. Vegetables and fruits have vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and they are usually low in calories. We all need at least five or more servings of vegetables and fruits every day. Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables that everyone in your family will enjoy.
  • Most of your grain and cereal products should be made from whole grains, not from refined flours. This part of your list includes whole grain breads, whole grain pastas, and whole grain breakfast cereals. Whole grains are important for vitamins, minerals, and for fiber, which is often lacking in modern diets. Read labels to look for 100% whole-grain or 100% whole-wheat to be sure you are getting whole grain products.
  • Your protein and meat choices should consist mostly of fish, poultry and lean meats. Eggs, nuts, seeds and legumes are also good protein choices. Choose fresh and frozen unbreaded meats and fish. Avoid breaded, deep-fried convenience foods that you put in the oven. They are high in fats and sodium.

Nine Reasons Why We Gain Weight

1. Poor eating habits and lack of exercise
2. Emotional tension & Subconcious Beliefs
3. High levels of stress
4. Thyroid imbalance
5. Liver malfunction and cellulite
6. Poor circulation and low metabolism
7. Poor elimination and toxic build up
8. Pancreas imbalance and sugar cravings
9. Allergies to foods and substances

All of the above listed health challenges often have weight gain as one of the symptoms of the imbalance going on. Dr Robert O Young Ph.D., author of The pH Miracle, said that part of why fat is created by the body is to save our lives by storing the toxins away from our blood and vital organs. To select the latest weight loss diet is to set ourselves up for discouragement as we do the yo-yo diet of loosing and gaining weight. This is also an unhealthy cycle for our bodies. It further stresses it because it is taxing to an already imbalanced system. If we get to the root cause then our bodies can be given what they need so that they easily and effortlessly release fat. I highly recommend finding a good Naturopathic Physician, Nutritionist or Health Practitioner of choice to guide any one who is thinking about dealing with health challenges that lead to weight gain
