Healthy Recipes that are also filling?
I’ve been working all summer on improving my diet, limiting how much I eat, and working out more. Until the recent flood (in Toronto) I was running several times a week and I’ve lost a bit of weight. But my BMI is still in the High Zone so there is room for improvement.
I’m working full-time so there’s not a lot of time left for food preparation. I also take a bagged lunch with a lunchmeat-sandwich every day, so if I could find a better option I’d use that. I also eat a Fibre cereal for breakfast and supper is wildcard depending on what my parent’s cook.
I’m also using an app that tracks my Nutritional information based on foods I eat, and I’m quite concerned about my Sodium intake. Health Canada recommends 1,500 mg of salt a day and I’m usually in the 4,500 range. Another concern, I never get enough Protein in my diet.
I’m looking for healthy, tasty foods that I can incorporate or replace my staples with. Basically I need:
-Recipes or link to recipes
-Low sodium, High protein
-I cannot eat Fish, Grapefruit, Pineapple, or Tropical fruits
Cookinglight.com & theskinnyconfidential.com have some good recipes.
What is the nutritional information for fresh fruit juice?
I am on a juicing diet, and I cant seem to find the nutritional amounts of fresh fruit juice (calories, carbs, sugars, ect.) on Google! So what are the amounts for an apple, an orange, pineapple, strawberries, carrots, celery, and grapes? Thankx 🙂
That info is out there what you need to look up is ‘health benefits of apple juice’ or carrot juice etc…you will find some great websites like livestrong.com.
Secondly the vitamins and minerals in fresh juice is excellent for you but that’s not why we juice..We juice for enzymes…yes enzymes…Enzymes have no nutritional benefit to your body, yes you read that right. Instead these are things your body needs and they are fuel for your body to heal itself and digest and fight cancer and disease. The more you understand about juicing the better. I can never go back to store bought juice because its just sugar water that has no enzymes and barely any vitamins anyway. Enzymes die when they are heated and all store juice is heated. Pasteurized.

I BELIEVED THAT NO TWO PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH
WERE ALIKE; NO TWO PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME FINGERPRINTS, LIP PRINTS, OR VOICE PRINTS. NO TWO BLADES OF GRASS OR SNOWFLAKES ARE ALIKE. BECAUSE I FELT THAT ALL PEOPLE WERE DIFFERENT FROM ONE ANOTHER, I DID NOT THINK IT WAS LOGICAL THAT THEY SHOULD EAT THE SAME FOODS. IT BECAME CLEAR TO ME THAT SINCE EACH PERSON WAS HOUSED IN A SPECIAL BODY WITH DIFFERENT STRENGTHS, WEAKNESSES AND NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS, THE ONLY WAY TO MAINTAIN HEALTH OR CURE ILLNESS WAS TO ACCOMMODATE TO THAT PARTICULAR PATIENT’S SPECIFIC NEEDS.
The dynamics of weight loss are related to the changes your body makes when you follow your genetically tailored diet. There are two factors.
1) First, as your body makes the dramatic shift of eliminating foods that are poorly digested or toxic, the first thing it does is try flush out the toxins that are already there.
Those toxins are mainly deposited in the fat tissue, so the process of eliminating toxins also means eliminating fat.
2) The second factor is the effects that specific foods have on the bodily systems that control weight. Depending on your blood type, the lectin activity of certain foods may do the following:
__ Interfere with the digestive process.
__ Slow down the rate of food metabolism, so you don’t efficiently burn calories
__ Compromise the production of insulin.
__ Upset the hormonal balance, causing water retention (oedema), thyroid
disorders and other problems.
Our blood contains aeons of genetic memory–bits and pieces of specific programming, passed on from our ancestors in codes we are still attempting to comprehend. One such code rests within our blood type. Perhaps it is the most important code we can decipher in our attempt to unravel the mysteries of blood and its vital role in
__ When you use the individualized characteristics of your blood type as a guide for eating and living you will be healthier, you will easily reach your ideal weight and you will slow the process of ageing.
__ Your blood type is a more reliable measure of your identity than race, culture or geography. It is a genetic blueprint for who you are, a guide to how you can live most fully.

“FOODS ENCOURAGE WEIGHT LOSS”Liv 52
The appearance of our Cro-Magnon ancestors around 40,000 BC propelled the human species to the top of the food chain, making them the most dangerous predators on earth. They began to hunt in organized packs; in a short time, they were able to make weapons and use tools. These major advances gave them strength and superiority beyond their natural physical abilities

The first immigrants, forced by the necessity of migration to adapt to a more agrarian diet and lifestyle–and a more cooperative personality to get along in crowded communities.
Type A blood initially appeared somewhere in Asia or the Middle East between 25,000 and 15,000 BC in response to new environmental conditions. It emerged at the peak of the Neolithic Period, or New Stone Age, which followed the Old Stone Age, or Paleolithic period, of the Cro-Magnon hunters. Agriculture and animal domestication
were the hallmarks of its culture.
Blood Type A had mutated from Type O in response to the myriad infections provoked by an increased populace and major dietary changes.

The assimilator, adapting to new climates and the mingling of populations; representing nature’s quest for a more balanced force between the tensions of the mind and the demands of the immune system.
Blood Type B developed sometime between 10,000 and 15,000 BC, in the area of the Himalayan highlands–now part of Pakistan and India.
Pushed from the hot, lush savannahs of eastern Africa to the cold, unyielding highlands of the Himalayas, Blood Type B may have initially mutated in response to climactic changes. It first appeared in India or the Ural region of Asia among a mix of Caucasian and Mongolian tribes. This new blood type was soon characteristic of the great tribes of steppe dwellers, who by this time dominated the Eurasian plains.

-AB is for Modern.-
Type AB blood is rare. Emerging from the intermingling of Type A Caucasians with Type B Mongolians, it is found in less than 5 per cent of the population, and it is the newest of the blood types.

Do the nutrition facts on the label of a can of fruit include the juice it is packed in?
I’m trying to keep track of my calorie intake for dietary purposes. When I read the can of pineapple chunks that I just ate to get an idea about how many calories it had, it said it has 70 calories per serving. Does that amount include the juice that it is packed in, or am I eating an unknown amount of extra calories if I also drink the juice in the can along with eating the fruit?
Calorie counts and nutritional information on packages are determined for the entire contents of the can. Fruit packed in juice has a higher calorie content than that packed in water, for this reason. So you can eat the fruit and drink the juice based on the information listed on the side. If you want to figure your intact most accurately, you would need to pour off the liquid and measure it out in servings according to the number listed on the can, and then combine that with the fruit, also divided into the correct number of servings. Both juice and fruit are accounted for, because the sugar in the juice would alter the caloric and carbohydrate content of the fruit.
