Friday! Tips, Tricks and Inspiration

Friday, February 24, 2012

Hello everyone. I am popping into post this blog: I am limiting my "online" time during lent but wrote a number of blogs in advance. Since Spark does not allow scheduled posting, as time allows, I'll pop into post them. Enjoy!

I have been reading a lot of studies lately that show that Omega 3 and Omega 6 are not only good for heart health and fighting cancer, but play a large role in brain health as well. So clearly I have been actively working to include more of these foods in my diet (need all the help I can get), but it is a lot of information to digest. I made a short list of foods I enjoy that are high in these foods so I can remember to incorporate them regularly. If you need some tips on getting in those Omega 3's, their "mystery" is unraveled here.

So it turns out that if your teen wants to lose weight, you should probably butt out! The trick to teen weight loss seems to be "going it alone." A handful of studies have shown that teens who took charge of their own weight loss were mores successful than those "helped" by their mothers. Given teens' need to individuate, it makes sense. [I'm sorry I lost the link on this one but when I find it, I'll come back and add it here.]

We all know my Friday title is a bit of wordplay, right? There really are no tricks to lasting weight loss. But we don't want to be tricked, either. So I bring you what we've all been waiting for, at last! What you eat doesn't matter as much as caloric intake; Here is a study to prove the obvious! It makes sense to me that certain styles of weight loss will be easier for certain personalities and body types. Pick the type of eating plan you think you can stick with for life, eat less than you do now, and while you're at it, make some choices to enhance your long-term health. www.foodpolitics.

Are you having trouble getting that water in each day? Here is some inspiration in and a couple of more good reasons to drink that water: It turns out that dehydration can affect your energy level and your mood as well. Try getting in a larger quantity of water next time you're feeling low and see if it helps. Check out the article for more information: healthland.time.c

Happy weekend, everyone!

    Liked to read that it is the calorie intake that matters - I am sometimes confused by all those strong believers in that certain foods makes miracles.
