My New Beginning

I am a teacher, wife and mother if two (21/2 and 5). I want to lose 40 pounds. My biggest obstacle is I love reasons to celebrate and food is often, always involved. I know what I have to do...but motivation is low. I am ready!!

In case you are wondering where I came from, I am a friend of Daughter of Twin. I added you as a spark friend and hope you will do the same with me. I am one of those sparkers who has over 100# to lose and love sweets so eating good instead of naughty is challenging. Need I say more?

Hey, I just found this information on heart healthy foods. Specifically whole grains:

3. Whole Grains
People who eat plenty of whole grains tend to be leaner and have a lower risk of heart disease than those who don’t. This is probably because whole grains contain antioxidants, phytoestrogens and phytosterols that are protective against coronary disease.

The fiber in whole grains also has its benefits: various studies link a high-fiber diet with a lower risk of heart disease. In a Harvard study of female health professionals, people who ate a high-fiber diet had a 40 percent lower risk of heart disease than those who ate a low-fiber diet.

Aim to include plenty of foods that are rich in soluble fiber, which, studies show, can help lower “bad” LDL. Soluble fiber binds bile acid, a key component in fat digestion that our bodies make from cholesterol. We can’t digest fiber, so when bile acids are bound to it, they get ushered out of the body as waste. This causes the body to convert more cholesterol into bile acids, which ultimately has the effect of lowering circulating cholesterol levels. Foods high in soluble fiber include oatmeal, barley, beans, okra and eggplant, and citrus fruit, such as oranges.

Hey there! How are you doing? I haven't heard from you in a while. You've been on my mind.
