Minutes.......

Posted on June 13

There are 1,440 minutes in one day. If you sleep for 8 hours (480 minutes), you are left with 960 minutes.
If you just walk 30 minutes per day, you are left with 930 minutes.
The simple act of walking helps with pain management, bone density, mood, sleep, muscle tone, balance, lowering blood sugars and weight control.IMG 0267

Frozen Yogurt vs. Ice Cream: Which is Healthier?

Posted on May 23

Ice cream is made from milk and cream, where as yogurt is made from yogurt, milk and sometimes cream.

To be labeled ice cream, it must contain 10% milk fat. There is no requirement for frozen yogurt.

Let's compare vanilla ice cream to frozen yogurt:

Ice cream: 130 calories, 7 grams of fat, 16 grams of carbs and 2 grams of protein.

Frozen yogurt: 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbs and 3 grams of protein.

*In yogurt there is friendly bacteria, but this benefit is lost as they are killed during the freezing process.

So.....when reading the nutrition facts label, it is important to look at the whole picture..... calories, carbs, fat and protein.

Personally, I would chose the ice cream here as the difference in calories is minimal but there is less sugar and more fat for better blood sugar balance.18581630 1885260565022003 8279477798411253824 n

Fasting Diet

Posted on May 10

In the perfect world, we would eat at 9:00 am, 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm. This would allow your dinner to be digested by 9:00 pm and the fat burning mechanism would turn on. This would allow you 12 hours of fat burning to help weight loss, weight control and longevity. Over feeding is not only an issue with weight gain, but also sickness, disease and a shortened life span. This is a simple way to fast or you can skip a breakfast or dinner once in awhile to trigger your fat burning.d9228b8bb91122b
