A Diet Myth

Diet Myths
Does eating lots of grapefruit, celery or hot peppers melt away body fat?

There are no foods that burn away body fat.

The healthiest way to decrease body fat is to eat a balanced diet and expend more calories through exercise. Magic bullets and quick fixes typically lead to disappointment, as
they thin your wallet rather than your waistline.

Dealing with Fun Food

The following tip came to me the other day from Eastman's Health and Wellness program. I am sharing with you again...

Summer Festivals & Fun Food From peach cobbler topped with ice cream to fried everything you can imagine, summer festivals and all of their interesting foods can be a fun and memorable part of summer. But, how do you have a great time at summer outdoor events and still eat healthfully?

Here are a few tips for enjoying without overindulging:
  • Look at all food options before choosing your favorites;
  • share with a friend;
  • choose smaller portions when possible;
  • put it all on one plate rather than munching as you go;
  • and sit down, eat slowly and enjoy!

Eat Like A Pig?


You ever feel like that pig above?
Maybe the following tip will help.

Tip for Eating Healthy: Listen to Your Hunger Cues

How often do you eat because you are hungry? What about for other reasons, such as boredom, anger, stress, or for social reasons? Try eating when you feel hungry and stopping as you begin to become full. For some people, it helps to keep a food journal where they jot down their hunger level every time they eat. Many people are surprised at how often they eat for reasons other than physical hunger. According to our registered dietitian, identifying your eating patterns is often an early step to improving your diet.
