Eating in Moderation Makes You Fat

Eating in Moderation Makes You Fat

Many health guru’s will tell you that you can have all of your favorite foods in moderation, and you don’t have to count calories. Maybe you orderd something healthy at dinner only to have a friend or family member say you could have something else (unhealthy) if you only eat in moderation.

Review of Dr Siegal’s Cookie Diet

Mmmm, cookies. Who does not love cookies? They come in any shape, color and flavor imaginable. Without a doubt, there is a cookie tailored to the needs of even the pickiest of eaters.

Here are some suggestions to make those meals a bit easier chow down.

Never Starve While Losing Weight

Never Starve While Losing Weight

Have you ever heard a family member or friend talk about starting a new diet and eating only “healthy” food such as salads, fruits, and, non-fat yogurt only to find a short while later they are unable to keep on the diet plan because they feel as if they are starving? Perhaps you have experienced this yourself?

It’s generally considered common knowledge that we must cut calories in order to lose weight. It’s also common knowledge that salads, fruits, and non-fat yogurts have less calories than pizza, hamburgers, and ice cream.
