So you did it again and you feel like ....!

what about the kids around you ? do they got the same message of party and indulgence on candy, cup cakes and soda?

What are you going to do about it... cause the holidays just began and if you're not wise you can end up like our friend on the picture plus as a human your body will get lots of other after party health issues....

For many people, holidays and family get togethers are a time for celebration. These celebrations often involve foods that are high in fat, sugar and calories and short on nutrition. With a few minor changes, however, special occasion foods can be both delicious and nutritious.

Dairy Products ...
Many holiday foods include dairy products. Enjoy these foods during your celebrations, but use skimmed milk and other 'low' or 'no' fat dairy products in your recipes whenever possible. Look for the growing assortment of low fat cheeses, cheese slices and cheese spreads that are now available in your grocery store. For example, use light or ultra-light cream cheese or cheddar cheese with only 7% fat. If you use spreads or other products that are high in fat, such as butter, mayonnaise, sour cream, spread them very thinly or use only a small amount.

The meat dish ...

choose leaner cuts of meat for your holiday gatherings whenever possible. Turkey is one of the leanest types of meat. As a general rule, white meat is leaner than dark meat - so choose the breast meat of a chicken or turkey rather than the drumstick.
trim the visible fat off of meats.
remove skin from poultry.
choose fish more often. Cold water fatty fish such as tuna and salmon have 'heart healthy' types of fat in them.
prepare meats in ways that reduce the fat content, like broiling, stewing, or baking.
drain the excess fat off of meats after cooking.
cook meats on a rack so fat can drip away.
cool soups, gravies, stews, etc. before serving and then remove the hardened fat that has collected at the top.
use vegetable cooking sprays to prevent foods from sticking.
when preparing a roast, baste with low fat broth instead of the drippings from the pan.

Vegetables ...

Fortunately, most vegetables contain little or no fat. It is what we add to the vegetables that increase their fat content.
Avoid smothering your vegetables with thick creamy sauces or butter. Potatoes, for example, contain no fat. They also contain very little salt and are good sources of Vitamins B and C and potassium. Potato skins are a good source of fibre (fibre may help lower cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of colon cancer). Try leaving the skins on the potatoes when you mash them. When mashing potatoes, rather than adding butter or sour cream, try whipping the potatoes with skim or 1% milk or low / no fat sour cream or yogurt.
Feel free to include two or three vegetables with your meal as long as they have been prepared with little or no fat. This can often be done by steaming, baking or cooking them in the microwave. Flavor can be added by using seasonings such as spices and herbs. Dark green vegetables (such as broccoli) and bright orange vegetables (such as carrots and sweet potatoes) are high in the antioxidant vitamins, folic acid and fibre. Antioxidants (as Vitamins A, C, and E) can be protective agents against heart disease and cancer. Folic acid may play a role in helping to reduce the risk of heart attacks and stroke. When choosing vegetables, pick the ones that are the darkest in color to ensure maximum nutrition.
Salads are a great addition to any holiday meal. Be sure to choose a low fat dressing or ask your host to let you add your own so that you can control the amount.
Cooking Tip: To prevent loss of flavor and vitamins when cooking vegetables, try steaming vegetables in less water or using a steaming rack. If you do boil vegetables in water, save the water to make gravy.


If you have stuffing with your meat dish and the recipe calls for meat or giblets, replace half of the meat with dried fruits such as cranberries, raisins or apricots. This turns an everyday recipe into a colorful and seasonal dish.
Cooking Tip: Rather than cooking stuffing inside of poultry or a roast, cook the stuffing in a casserole dish or aluminum foil in the oven. This will reduce the amount of fat in the stuffing considerably.


Making gravy from a low fat broth rather than the drippings from poultry or a roast is a good way to reduce fat. If your gravy recipe calls for milk, make sure to use skim milk.
Cooking Tip: If you choose to use drippings for your gravy, pour or skim the fat off the top of the drippings before using. This can be done easily by letting the drippings get cold and, when the fat has become hard, take it off with a spoon. Or, when the drippings are cool, you can also add ice cubes, to which the fat will stick. Remove the ice cubes before making the gravy.

Cranberry Sauce ...

Cranberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C. Unfortunately much of the Vitamin C content is lost in the canning process. Luckily homemade cranberry sauce is easy to prepare and the nutrients are retained. Try using cranberry sauce on your turkey instead of gravy.
Cooking Tip: When making cranberry sauce, add sugar after cooking the cranberries to maintain the tenderness of the skin. You may also want to substitute some artificial sweetener for some of the sugar in your cranberry sauce recipe.


Dinner may be very filling, but what is a holiday feast without dessert? Here are some healthier suggestions:
mix applesauce with mincemeat to reduce the amount of fat and serve with frozen low fat or fat free yogurt.

angel food cake contains little or no fat and can make a great dessert when served with fruits such as strawberries, raspberries or a fresh fruit salad.

if making pumpkin pie – use evaporated skim milk and top with low fat or fat free ice cream or frozen yogurt. Also try our "crustless pumpkin pie"

try to make 'wise' dessert choices rather than deny yourself, have a smaller portion and savor every mouthful when you have choices, opt for desserts that are lower in fat and sugar. For example, if faced with a plate of cookies, you may decide to choose the sugar cookies or gingerbread cookies over shortbread cookies as they tend to be lower in fat.

Beverages ...

mulled cider or our lowfat eggnog are a good alternative to high fat eggnog. If you choose to have egg nog, have a smaller amount and dilute it with skim milk or use low fat or fat free egg nog. Diet carbonated sodas can make a very festive drink when added to your favorite fruit juice -- try cranberry or grape juice with soda. Nonalcoholic or de-alcoholized wines are improving all the time and make a great alternative for the holidays.

Every day of during holidays will have a bit of excuses on why not to exercises to keep the body balance, have more energy to enjoy this seasons. That’s why I got this bits of info. For you to enjoy them as well to share it with friends and family.

To your salud… 

In the mind time I will keep you posted of a simple tips to get you out of the cycle of seasonal weight gain....

Worst Restaurant Breakfasts in America

Remember when Britney Spears was a baby-faced singer with some cute dance moves? Remember when Lindsay Lohan was a funny actress who made neat movies? Remember when Tiger Woods was a great golfer who never made a wrong move?

Remember when breakfast was the healthiest meal of the day?

Food marketers didn’t shave Britney’s head, or sneak rum into Lindsay’s Coke, or teach Tiger how to text message. But they sure have done a job on breakfast. And that’s too bad, because a smart breakfast ought to be the most important meal of the day. And eating a good one ought to be easy. Studies show that people who take time for a morning meal consume fewer calories over the course of the day, have stronger cognitive skills, and are 30 percent less likely to be overweight or obese.

But when food marketers get their hands on it, “a hearty breakfast” turns into something more like “a heart-unhealthy breakfast.” Because an unhealthy heart is exactly what many of the country’s most popular breakfast joints are setting you up for, by peddling fatty scrambles, misguided muffin missiles, and pancakes that look like manhole covers. These foods are loaded with unhealthy fats, added sugars, and refined carbohydrates, which catapult your blood sugar, sap your energy levels, and tell your body to store fat. Start your day this way and you’ll be ready for a second breakfast—and a nap—before 11 a.m. To help you avoid the morning mishaps, we searched out the good, the bad, and the greasy and uncovered some of the best and worst breakfast foods in America.

Starbucks Iced Peppermint Mocha#6: Worst Breakfast Beverage
Starbucks Iced Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha with whole milk and whipped cream (venti, 24 oz)
720 calories
27 g fat (17 g saturated)
103 g sugars

Pure black coffee is one of the world's most potent elixirs. In fact, research shows that a morning cup can help decrease your risk of Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and type-2 diabetes. That’s good news, since 77 percent of U.S. adults over 18 years of age drink coffee on a daily or occasional basis. But here’s the problem: There's a big difference between an untainted cup of joe and the souped-up, sugar-loaded blends (this particular drink contains 26 scoops of sugar) that list coffee as one of the ingredients. And this Iced Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha is the definition of caffeinated indulgence. You can switch to an equally delicious and refreshing drink (Starbucks has plenty, such as the caffe mocha, which is still coffee with chocolate in it, after all), and cut 520 calories in the process!

Drink This Instead!
Iced Caffe Mocha (16 oz, no whipped cream)
200 calories
6 g fat (2.5 g saturated)
26 g sugars

Cinnabon Pecanbun#5: Worst Pastry Breakfast
Cinnabon Regular Caramel Pecanbun
1,100 calories
56 g fat (10 g saturated, 5 g trans)
47 g sugars

This isn’t breakfast—this is dessert. And an atrocious one at that. The only speck of nutrition to be found in the bun comes from the nuts. Too bad they’re coated in sugar. This dangerously bloated bun contains nearly an entire day’s worth of fat and more than half of your daily allotment of calories. That’s as much as you’ll find in 8 White Castle hamburgers. The Cinnabon Stix below are far from a healthy breakfast, but they're better than nothing (albeit barely).

Eat This Instead!
Cinnabon Stix
379 calories
21 g fat (6 g saturated, 4 g trans)
14 g sugars

Bob Evans Border Scramble#4: Worst Scrambled Eggs Breakfast
Bob Evans Border Scramble Biscuit Bowl
1,028 calories
57 g fat (25 g saturated)
3,055 mg sodium

Bob Evans also offers a Border Scramble Omelet, which contains nearly 400 fewer calories than this overflowing biscuit bowl. The difference in is the bowl itself (several hundred calories of carbohydrate-loaded dough) and the cheese sauce—this biscuit bowl boasts a Queso sauce that no one in his or her right mind would consider a healthy topping. Instead of switching to the Border Scramble Omelet, however, cut another hundred calories by choosing the Garden Harvest, which is also loaded with vegetables.

Eat This Instead!
Garden Harvest Omelet
542 calories
38 g fat (17 g saturated)
1,762 mg sodium

Denny's Grand Slamwich#3: Worst Breakfast Sandwich
Denny’s Grand Slamwich
1,320 calories
90 g fat (42 g saturated, 1 g trans)
3,070 mg sodium

Word to the wise: If a restaurant menu item is named for its monstrous size, there’s not a chance it’s good for you. Words like “Grand” and “Big” and “Double” are all tip-offs: Steer clear of this Frankenfood at all costs. This ginormous breakfast sandwich comes with a day and a half worth of sodium, as much saturated fat as you’ll find in 42 strips of bacon, and the caloric equivalent of four and a half cheeseburgers from McDonald’s.

Eat This Instead!

Veggie-Cheese Omelette
500 calories
37 g fat (12 g saturated, 0 g trans)
940 mg sodium

Friendly's Apple Caramel Walnut Pancakes#2: Worst Pancakes
Friendly’s Apple Caramel Walnut Pancakes
1,540 calories
30 g fat (11 g saturated)
2,290 mg sodium

Friendly’s has one of the worst breakfast menus of any restaurant we’ve seen—we had to customize the “Eat This Instead” order below to make it even worth considering. Quick tip: When eating at Friendly’s, never order anything sweet or pastry-like, like these pancakes. No matter what you’ve ordered, you’re guaranteed at least 900 calories. And that’s before you get to the sides. For the best breakfast meal, choose protein-rich foods, like eggs, and skip all sugar- and carbohydrate-laden sides, like toast, muffins, or pancakes.

Eat This Instead!

Super Sizzlin’ Bacon Combo (with 3 scrambled Egg Beaters, hold the toast)
570 calories
29 g fat (5 g saturated)
1,310 mg sodium

Cheesecake Factory French Toast Napoleon#1: The Worst Breakfast in America
Cheesecake Factory French Toast Napoleon
2,460 calories
61 g saturated fat
1,769 mg sodium
246 g carbohydrates

The Cheesecake Factory never fails to amaze us. This outrageous restaurant consistently earns the title of “Worst” on nearly every list we create. Their French Toast Napoleon is no exception—it contains well over a day’s worth of calories (that’s about the equivalent of 19 bowls of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, to give you some idea). It also has 61 grams of saturated fat (three times your daily limit). The only saving grace here is that not all of Cheesecake’s breakfast items are inedible. You’ll be safe if you stick to the healthy (and healthy sounding) scramble, below.

Eat This Instead!

Shiitake Mushroom, Spinach and Goat Cheese Scramble
570 calories
16g saturated fat
994 mg sodium
13 g carbohydrates

Low blood sugar?

Q. I have a lot of trouble with low blood sugar. Any tips for what I should or shouldn't be eating to help manage this?

A. My first question would be whether low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is really the problem.

Several years ago, my sister told me she had problems with low blood sugar. She hadn't actually been to see a doctor. But she'd noticed that when she felt head-achy, queasy, or shaky (which was fairly often), drinking some juice or eating some crackers usually made her feel better--for a little while. She started carrying little boxes of raisins and animal crackers around in her purse and eating them throughout the day to keep her blood sugar from dipping.

As she told me all of this, I wondered if her "treatment plan" was actually part of the problem.
I suggested that she try replacing the raisins with a similar-sized portion of peanuts. When she tried it, she found that the recurring symptoms she associated with "hypoglycemia" largely want away. (What are big sisters for?)

Although hypoglycemia is a real (and potentially serious) thing, most people who self-diagnose themselves with the condition are not actually suffering from hypoglycemia. Often, the problem is not that their blood sugar is too low but that it has been too high. Compare, for example, hopping down off a curb with jumping down from a 5-foot wall. You end up on the ground either way, but bigger the jump down, the more you're going to feel it in your joints.

Eating foods that are high in sugar and refined carbohydrates can cause a sudden, steep rise in blood sugar levels followed by a "crash." Foods that that are lower in sugar and/or contain protein, fiber, and healthy fats cause a more gradual, sustained rise in blood sugar, followed by a gentler return to baseline. As was the case with my sister, "low blood sugar" problems can often be solved simply by getting off the blood sugar roller coaster.

Try cutting down on sugar (don't forget sweetened beverages) and adding protein and fiber to your meals and snacks and see if you feel better. If you don't, it might be time to check in with your doctor.

I have a BAD news for you,
Snacks are fattening :(

This is a great article that I want to share with!
I know we all have some kind of sweet tooth an just because they say is fat free or sugar free or organic or healthy that will not have any bad stuff right. Well think about what you eat next time.

1. Flavored Yogurt

Brace yourself for culture shock. Plain yogurt naturally contains about 16 grams of sugar per cup. But if you eat flavored yogurt, you could be downing 15 or more additional grams of sugar, which is like shoveling in four extra teaspoonfuls.
What to eat instead: Choose plain, low-fat yogurt and stir in a teaspoon of honey, maple syrup, or all-fruit spread for a hint of sweetness. Or opt for fat-free Greek yogurt, which is lower in sugar than even regular plain yogurt but often has double the protein to keep you satisfied longer.

2. Sugar-Free Cookies and Candy

Don't fall for the no-sugar scam: When manufacturers remove the sweet stuff, they often add fat. One popular brand offers chocolate-chip cookies that each contain 160 calories and 9 grams of fat, so why not eat the real thing? You might save calories with sugar-free candy, but many contain sorbitol, which can cause bloating and diarrhea.
What to eat instead: Get your cookie fix with graham crackers, which have almost a teaspoon less sugar per serving than many other packaged cookies. Or find a 100-calorie snack pack of your favorite (try Keebler Fudge Shoppe Mini Fudge Stripes). Taking a trip to candy land? Grab a 60-calorie Tootsie Pop or a York Peppermint Pattie (140 calories and 2.5 grams of fat).

3. Trail Mix

Store-bought versions of this hiking staple should take a hike. A 1-ounce handful of banana chips packs 10 grams of fat (they're usually deep-fried), and yogurt-covered raisins are coated with partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, which contains saturated and trans fats.
What to eat instead: Toss your own trail mix with nuts, dried fruit (raisins or chopped apricots), whole-grain cereal, mini pretzels, and a few chocolate chips. Limit your portion to one cup.

4. Veggie Chips

The rainbow-hued chips are no better than their potato counterparts. While both may boast a little vitamin A or C, your hips won't know the difference: The salty snacks have about 150 calories and 9 or 10 grams of fat per handful. And that bag may contain plain old chips in disguise; sometimes manufacturers simply add food coloring to potato flour.
What to eat instead: Be sure your chips list a vegetable, not potato flour or corn flour, as the first ingredient (we like Terra Chips) and stick with just one portion. Or skip them in favor of baked tortilla chips: Pair a serving (about 12 chips) with 1/2 cup of salsa; you'll quell your crunch craving and get a full serving of veggies with only 153 nearly fat-free calories.

5. Granola

Pancakes drowned in syrup, eggs swimming in hollandaise sauce -- is there a healthy option on the brunch menu? Granola seems harmless, but it's no breakfast of champions. One cup contains up to 560 calories and 28 grams of fat before you add milk.
What to eat instead: Reluctant to give up that sweet, nutty taste? Skip granola at restaurants, where you can't control your portion. Enjoy it at home by mixing a quarter cup into a cup of low-cal, whole-grain cereal, such as All-Bran Complete Wheat Flakes, or sprinkle a tablespoon on oatmeal.

6. Ground Turkey

It seems like a no-brainer for burgers and lasagna, but ground turkey often includes fat and skin. A 3-ounce serving can contain 13 grams of fat -- almost triple the amount in lean ground beef. With 40-plus percent of your day's worth of cholesterol, regular ground chicken is no better.

What to eat instead: Look closely at labels. Extra-lean turkey is your best bet, with 1 gram of fat and no saturated fat per serving. Can't find it? Buy at least 92 percent lean ground beef.
-- Sally Kuzemchak, RD

I always make sure I have a good balance and most of all research from trusted sources, I believed that if you have in your mind that a healthy life style is not a Fashion statement and to become healthy has to come from within making small changes everyday and learn that our bodies for the most part, work great when with think on the right way to treat them and no with emotions!

Easter commemorates Jesus Christ's resurrection and is often associated with popular symbols such as eggs, candy, bunnies and parades.

Greeks will be ready to break fasts with their favorite, traditional dishes.

Restaurant Catches Heat for Serving Easter Rabbit Feast

Easter is just a few days away and there's a big debate over rabbits.

A local restaurant is hosting a rabbit Easter dinner and the idea is not sitting well with some animal lovers.

Some of the comments posted on Caffe Boa's Facebook page:

"Your Easter menu is disgusting! I am a bunny mom and along with fighting day and night to raise awareness of the beauty & grace of rabbits I will work just has hard to spread the word to stay away from establishments that serve domestic animals as food!"

"You're not serious... rabbits for Easter dinner? I am absolutely appalled! How sacrilegious! I will also be warning everyone to stay away from places that serve PETS as CUISINE! Horrifying!"

We made some phone calls before doing this story and found that there are quite a few restaurants in the Phoenix-metro area that serve rabbit. It's a lot more common than you might believe.

We also spoke to Caffe Boa about their Sunday rabbit special. They say the rabbits served at the restaurant are not domesticated bunnies - they're all-natural, free-range rabbits raised in safe conditions.

"I understand that there are some people who may not be enjoying rabbit on Easter or any other day of the year for that matter, but the fact is that's their choice and their prerogative." said Caffe Boa owner Jay Wisniewski. "These are different breeds, they are northern California whites and New Zealand whites, 100-percent different breed than what people are raising for pets. I don't have a rabbit as a pet.. our general manager had a pig as a pet, but she still eats pork chops."

Most people lost the Valentine's spirit due to the fact that media is flooded with adds to spend and get a image that this day is far from.

What can you do to spend quality time vs $$$$ and just a fake date?

Valentine's Day opens the door for romance and gives you a chance to show your love in a special way. What you do on this special day is not as important as making sure you take time to be with the one you love. So make plans to go that extra mile and find a way to celebrate your love that will last a lifetime.

Plan a Romantic Evening at Home - Plan to spend the evening together at home watching movies, eating pizza and simply doing the things you love together. This could turn out to be the most romantic way to celebrate your love.

Write a Poem - Write your loved one a poem and put it in a handmade card expressing how much love you have for them. This is romantic and means so much because the words come straight from the heart.

Exercises Together

This can actually be a great way to spend time doing something physical that can lead to a great healthy dinner and a way to extend the date to a great and meaningful meal!


With all protein sources (especially animal protein), you must be
very careful. Why?

Because some foods contain more fat than protein, adding too many
calories to a tiny portion of protein.

So here are my favorite veggie protein sources.

Food Type: Protein / Carbohydrates / Fats

* Tofu 4 oz.: 8 gr / 4 gr / 4 gr

* Black Beans ½ cup: 7.5 gr / 20gr / 5 gr

* Peanut Butter 1 Tbl.: 4 gr / 3.5 gr / 8 gr

* Almond Butter 1 Tbl.: 2 gr / 3 gr / 9 gr

* Cashew Nuts ¼ cup: 5 gr / 9 gr / 12 gr

* Seitan 3 ounces: 20 gr / 8 gr / 2 gr

* Tempeh 4 ounces: 16 gr / 14 gr / 6 gr

* Sunflower seeds raw ¼ cup: 6 gr / 6 gr / 14 gr.

* Soybeans ½ cup: 16 gr / 14 gr / 8 gr

And if you still want to get all the nutrients in place but have no time to buy them prepare them and eat them all.
Is 100% organic, natural and you get 3 days FREE

All the Best and have a blast on that special day!
I know I will..... :)

Your 2nd Week 2010 Resolution

Second Week Of Your New Years Resolution right?

Tell me how's going and what have you encounter on your way to health & fitness in this couple of week?

* This year adults also seem to be more resolved to make changes, with 29 percent planning to make resolutions for 2010, compared to only 17 percent in 2009, a year-over-year increase of 12 percent. , * While it is common among resolution makers to talk about their goals the reality is only one in four U.S. adults have ever made resolutions (24%), of whom even less always keep them (6%);,,Just in time for New Year's resolution makers, in early January 2010 will unveil its planning tool that will appeal to the nine out of ten online adults (92%) who searched the Internet for ways to stick with their New Year's resolution and who are at least somewhat likely to use a free online service to help them maintain their New Year's resolutions. ,Thousands of Americans engage in the annual tradition of making New Year's resolutions and survey results show that in 2010 the majority of resolution makers will be focused on health, fitness and their finances. ,The second annual New Year's Resolution Poll found that:,,The passing of a year often signifies a new beginning.

But, instead what People do?

Eating is a vital process for humans and any living creatures and the way we do it can make a big difference in how our bodies respond to it and make incredible changes, lose weight, tone up,increase energy,focus and happiness.
Out of the food that we eat, Vitamins and Minerals are the key for the food to help the body to make the right reactions.

Bottom line: Many people just aren't meeting the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of vitamins and minerals. And even people that eat plenty of fruits and veggies don't either, thanks to current farming practices and mass food production.

And here's a really interesting study from the Journal of the American Medical Association that states, "it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements."

Vitamin deficiency syndromes such as scurvy and beriberi are uncommon in Western societies. However, suboptimal intake of some vitamins, above levels causing classic vitamin deficiency, is a risk factor for chronic diseases and common in the general population, especially the elderly. Suboptimal folic acid levels, along with suboptimal levels of vitamins B6 and B12, are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, neural tube defects, and colon and breast cancer; low levels of vitamin D contribute to osteopenia and fractures; and low levels of the antioxidant vitamins (vitamins A, E, and C) may increase risk for several chronic diseases. Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements. The evidence base for tailoring the contents of multivitamins to specific characteristics of patients such as age, sex, and physical activity and for testing vitamin levels to guide specific supplementation practices is limited. Physicians should make specific efforts to learn about their patients' use of vitamins to ensure that they are taking vitamins they should, such as folate supplementation for women in the childbearing years, and avoiding dangerous practices such as high doses of vitamin A during pregnancy or massive doses of fat-soluble vitamins at any age.

I found that in order to get the right amount of NATURAL nutrients in food I would have to spend lost of money and lots of time eating the large amounts of food to get the right number of nutrients in my body.
I chose this 100% NATURAL ORGANIC source of nutrients in a powder form from the very whole food that my body needs every day. It's called LIVE, check it out for free and give me your input,
My wife and children are ripping the benefits of it and I honestly recommend it to all my clients and friends, why not try real nutrients for are real bodies!
