A SELF blogger is on week 3 of the Jump Start Diet. Here's what she has to say so far: "This is the first time I've ever tried an official diet, and the longer I stick with it, the easier it's getting...It really boils down to willpower. And, I've learned, it's easier to have willpower when you have two other important things: great, simple recipes (with the ingredients you need to make the recipes) AND a plan. I wrote about this last week, but I'll say it again -- planning ahead is the secret!" http://on.self.com/xMnmjE Are you signed up for the Jump Start Diet? How's it going so far? read more..

What's your fave frozen meal? Here's a coupon (it's progressive, so the more people you share it with, the higher it grows in value!) for Healthy Choice meals.Healthy ChoiceWith Healthy Choice, you can enjoy a more healthful lifestyle without giving up the flavorful foods you love. Our chefs create delicious foods that meet or exceed the highest nutritional standards, while using innovative cooking technologies like steaming to heighten flavor, optimize texture and maximize crispness. From savory soups to great-tasting meals and snacks, you can find Healthy Choice throughout the grocery store and feel confident that you’re making smart decisions about what you eat. Brands with “healthy” in their name are held to a higher nutrition standard set by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Healthy Choice is the only major brand in its category that can call 100% of its products “healthy” as approved by the FDA. This means that each meal must have: • Low fat • Low saturated fat • Controlled sodium and cholesterol • 10% of the daily value for three beneficial nutrients (e.g., calcium, protein, fiber, iron, vitamin A or vitamin C) Company History The Healthy Choice story began with former ConAgra Foods CEO Charles "Mike" Harper. While traveling through California on business, this hot-fudge-sundae lover suffered a mild heart attack. Although he made a full recovery, he needed to re-evaluate his eating habits. So he began a search for foods that satisfied both his taste and health needs. When his search proved unsuccessful, he took it upon himself to bring to market products that taste good and are good for you. And that's how Healthy Choice was born. read more..

OBESITY & HEALTH: Obesity today has grown in numbers and continues to grow at an alarming rate. From children to old people, all have adapted a sedentary style of life that requires minimum physical movement. Another factor that contributes obesity is the consumption of food high in fat content.... tinned preserved food has replaced the healthy home cooked food. The main reason for this is the busy schedule that do not permit us to cook fresh food. People literally live on junk food or ready to eat meals. The fresh fruits & vegetables have been replaced by burgers, ice creams, chocolates, non-veg pizzas & carbonated drinks etc. An obese person also runs a high risk of having serious diseases like heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, joint problems, breathing problems, cancer & gall stone etc, thus making it amply evident that these days most of the health problems are more or less related to excess weight of a person. It is very important to get rid of extra weight to remain away from fatal diseases. BALANCED DIET IS NO LONGER AN OPTION BUT A NEED.... NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS BEING THIN FEELS.

Foods Containing Carbohydrates-How Safe Are High Protein-Low Carbohydrate Diets

HOW SAFE ARE HIGH PROTEIN AND LOW CARBOHYDRATE DIETS: The theory behind high pro...

HOW SAFE ARE HIGH PROTEIN AND LOW CARBOHYDRATE DIETS: The theory behind high protein and low-carbohydrate diets is that if dieters avoid foods containing carbohydrates i.e. starches or sugars — they will shed pounds. Such diets eliminate or dramatically restrict the intake of fruit, fruit juice, starchy vegetables, beans, bread, rice, cereals, pasta and other grain products, and all other foods containing carbohydrate, leaving a limited diet of foods that contain primarily fat and protein viz. meat, cheese, nonstarchy vegetables, and very little else. As the diet proceeds, the carbohydrate restriction relaxes somewhat, but fatty, high-protein foods continue to dominate the dieter's platter. Low-carbohydrate diets typically include quantities of cholesterol, fat, saturated fat, and protein that exceeds the recommended safe limits set by the National Academy of Sciences, and are often low in fiber and other important dietary constituents. “High-protein diets are not recommended bcoz they restrict healthful foods that provide essential nutrients and do not provide the variety of foods needed to adequately meet nutritional needs. Individuals who follow these diets are therefore at risk for compromised vitamin and mineral intake, as well as potential cardiac, renal, bone, and liver abnormalities overall.” So one should follow the principle of healthy and balanced eating to lose weight. read more..

Positive Thinking-Positive Attitude-Immune System-Health Risk

POSITIVE THINKING AND YOUR HEALTH: “You can’t get much done in life if you only...

POSITIVE THINKING AND YOUR HEALTH: “You can’t get much done in life if you only work on the days when you feel good." While everyone seems to know that negative feelings can eventually damage your health, there’s a new theory that a positive attitude can help you sustain good health and maybe even make you feel a whole lot better. Can it chase away illness? It sure can. If a person has the ability to control good health, even a little bit, it’s worth looking into. In other words, If you don’t have anything to lose by maintaining a positive attitude, and all the good health to gain, then why not maintain that optimistic spirit? At the very least, you’ll be happy, contented, and able to handle anything life throws at you. According to a 15-year study by Dutch doctors, involving 545 men between the ages of 64 and 84, optimism and just an overall great positive attitude reduced the health risk by half! That even beats the “laughter is the best medicine” cliché. So, why is it that people with a negative attitude or a feeling of hopelessness seem to sicken, while people with a more positive attitude can recover more easily? Doctors have done studies on the human immune system trying to figure out exactly that. Unfortunately, the immune system cells of people who are hopeless and sad are unable to fight off diseases. When these people are given hope and are able to think in a more positive manner, they develop stronger immune systems. A healthy immune system stands a better chance of fighting off diseases and allowing the person to regain good health. Part of the reason for this is that positive thinking and emotions give a person more energy and stamina; and that helps the immune system. It makes perfect sense that if you can improve the mind, making it more hopeful and positive, it would then affect the entire bodily system, helping to cure what ails you. Unfortunately for us all, hope isn’t something your doctor can prescribe for you; you have to find it on your own. So, before you give in to that constant pity party, consider your health. And never trivialize the power of positive thinking. Prevention would seem to be the ideal way to go. Work on that attitude adjustment now, before you become ill. A change of attitude will help your immune system work at peak efficiency, effectively preventing most illnesses. Let that positive thinking and emotion energize you and make you happier right now. Then learn to maintain that positive flow. The life you save could be your own. Not only will positive attitude help you stay healthier, but it can even delay the aging process. In fact people who view life more positively show fewer signs of frailty than those who have a pessimistic outlook in life. Thus it won't be an exaggeration to say that “A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.” read more..
