Nutrition Label Mistakes
When you read nutrition labels, make sure you think about what you're reading. Sometimes the information shown there is simply wrong. Here's a clear example, from a Price Chopper spaghetti sauce jar!
The Myth of 270g Carb Days
Occasionally a visitor writes in to inform me that all human beings should be eating exactly 270g of carbs every day to be healthy. Where does this absolute knowledge come from? The answer is that it's a myth.
Peasant Diet vs Modern Diet
Traditionally peasant workers would thrive on diets full of potatoes (Ireland), pasta (Italy) and other similar foods. Shouldn't that mean we should be really healthy on those diets today? Only if we actually had the workload they labored under as well.
Meatloaf with Gravy Frozen Dinner
As far as frozen dinners go, the South Beach Living Meatloaf with Gravy is rather tasty! Only 13g of net carbs, 16g of protein, 0g of trans fats, and a tasty flavor. You get the meatloaf, gravy, green beans and red peppers!
Ethnic Gourmet Palak Paneer
Frozen dinners don't have to be boring or full of chemicals. Ethnic Gourmet has a palak paneer - spinach with cheese cubes - which is tasty and full of healthy nutrition.
One Can of Coke a Day
Studies show that teenagers often drink seven or more cans of Coke a day. Some of my visitors write to say they drink "only" one can of Coke a day - and how much could it really be impacting their health? My suggestion - switch to water!
Unsweetened Juice Health
Many people drink unsweetened juice with the thought that it is healthy. However, usually making a fruit or vegetable into juice means they strip out all the fiber and many of the nutrients, leaving behind the natural sugars.
Fitness magazine is aimed at women who are interested in living a healthy life. Yes, some of it is a bit "fluffy" - like listing reasons to exercise. They also mix in practical advice - how to exercise to get a flatter stomach, to get stronger legs.
Amount Sugar Eaten a Year
If you think you're not a candidate for a low carb / low sugar diet, look at the statistics. The average American eats a whopping 160 pounds of sugar and corn syrup each year - PLUS another 24 pounds of artificial sweeteners. That's just the average!
Weight Milestone Signs
If your goal is to lose some weight, I *highly* recommend getting yourself a weight milestone sign. It is quite amazing how much these free signs help you achieve your goals!
