HAPPY DAYS

Friday, June 03, 2011

Remember how you felt in the summer as a kid - joyfully unself-conscious and liberated from adult rules? Recapture that special sense of wonder and savor it this season: Every day the sun shines, get out and do something that exhilarates you.

Eating a half cup of baby carrots (one serving) a day can help give your skin a sun-kissed appearance that people perceive as healthier, finds a study from the University of Nottingham. Apparently, carotenoids-the nutrients that lend carrots and red peppers their tint-make your complexion glow. It's a 40-calorie skin treat!

GRAB SOME SUPERFRUIT

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

The USDA recommends that you eat about 2 cups of fresh fruit per day. These summer berries are packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber and are delicious in smoothies, mixed with yogurt and sprinkled over cereal:

BLUEBERRIES: Half a cup of these berries will get you about 18% of your daily vitamin K, a vitamin that helps keep bones healhy & strong.

STRAWBERRIES: Just half a cup of strawberries contains 40% of your daily vitamin C needs. Not only does vitamin C boost your immune system, but it helps to maintain strong bones, teeth and cartilage.

RASPBERRIES: These are a rich source of manganese, a mineral that helps guard against anemia and PMS symptoms. A half-cup of raspberries contains roughly 20% of your daily manganese needs.

BLACKBERRIES: A half-cup of blackberries will supply nearly 20% of your daily fiber needs. Dietary fiber helps control weight by making you feel full longer, and may also reduce your risk for heart problems.

COMPETITION

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Do you feel as if you're in competition with every woman's body you see? How do you stop this negative thinking?

Think of your body as an instrument, not an ornament. Focus on what it does for you: breathe, run and keep blood flowing. If you're truly stuck in comparison mode, repeating a mantra like "I am I; you are you" can help break the habit.

QUICK CALORIE CUT

Monday, May 30, 2011

A simple way to keep yourself from going for seconds or more at family meals? Fill your plate in the kitchen and keep the serving platters there-not on the dining table. In one study, researchers videotaped people eating family-style. When asked how many servings they'd consumed, all study subjects thought they'd eaten one or two. But most had polished off three or four servings without realizing it.

    For me, family style eating only happens on holidays. And holidays are famous for adding on the pounds! That ought to tell us something. Most people have the serving dishes on the table I think. Chris
