Complete Proteins and amino acids


I have run across Susans Weblog which is a nutrition weblog produced by a Vegan in New York City. Although I eat a fair amount of red meat it is interesting to see how others eat and this weblog article tackles one of the big issues of vegitarian eating which is incomplete proteins.

I just wanted to make a quick link to the Abs diet here. I will put up a more extensive review later but wanted to pop this up for everyones benefit.

The Abs diet seems to be a modification of Fit For Life which is a great diet/exercise/lifestyle plan that has been popular for a couple of years at least and is great for getting results because of the perfect schedule that you keep for your eating and exercise.


Eating tips for a healthier lifestyle


Here is a list of great health tips from a great site, Renee Gets Fit

  1. Add just one fruit or veggie serving daily. Get comfortable with that, then add an extra serving until you reach 8 to 10 a day.
  2. Eat at least two servings of a fruit or veggie at every meal.
  3. Resolve never to supersize your food portions–unless you want to superize your clothes.
  4. Make eating purposeful, not mindless. Whenever you put food in your mouth, peel it, unwrap it, plate it, and sit. Engage all of the senses in the pleasure of nourishing your body.
  5. Start eating a big breakfast. It helps you eat fewer total calories throughout the day.
  6. Make sure your plate is half veggies and/or fruit at both lunch and dinner.
  7. Eating out? Halve it, and bag the rest. A typical restaurant entree has 1,000 to 2,000 calories, not even counting the bread, appetizer, beverage, and dessert.
  8. When dining out, make it automatic: Order one dessert to share.
  9. Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate.
  10. See what you eat. Plate your food instead of eating out of the jar or bag.
  11. Eat the low-cal items on your plate first, then graduate. Start with salads, veggies, and broth soups, and eat meats and starches last. By the time you get to them, you’ll be full enough to be content with smaller portions of the high-calorie choices.
  12. Instead of whole milk, switch to 1 percent. If you drink one 8-oz glass a day, you’ll lose 5 lb in a year.
  13. Juice has as many calories, ounce for ounce, as soda. Set a limit of one 8-oz glass of fruit juice a day.
  14. Get calories from foods you chew, not beverages. Have fresh fruit instead of fruit juice.
  15. Keep a food journal. It really works wonders.
  16. Follow the Chinese saying: “Eat until you are eight-tenths full.”
  17. Use mustard instead of mayo.
  18. Eat more soup. The noncreamy ones are filling but low-cal.
  19. Cut back on or cut out caloric drinks such as soda, sweet tea, lemonade, etc. People have lost weight by making just this one change. If you have a 20-oz bottle of Coca-Cola every day, switch to Diet Coke. You should lose 25 lb in a year.
  20. Take your lunch to work.
  21. Sit when you eat.
  22. Dilute juice with water.
  23. Have mostly veggies for lunch.
  24. Eat at home.
  25. Limit alcohol to weekends.
