The Top Five Food Items You Need To Avoid

Posted by Saito on April 17, 2009

Looked it up and yahoo.com’s food section says these are five food items you should definitely avoid:

2% Milk
milk2
2% Milk really lives up to it’s name, there is only a 30 calorie difference between Whole Milk and 2% Milk. You’d be better off getting Skim Milk and that alone will save you 14,000 calories a year!

Whole Wheat Bagels

Whole Wheat Bagels have just as or more (350 calories more to be exact) as a bagel made with flour. If you want Whole Wheat products I suggest get it in bread and not bagel.

Chicken Caesar Salad

You know that Chicken Caesar Salad you get at Mcdonalds? Do yourself a favor and try a good old fashion cheeseburger :/ this little food item packs in as much calories as a Quarter Pound Burger…

Granola
Breakfast
Granola cereal used to be good for you, till it hit the 21st century. The Bear Naked cereal brand of Granola (as an example) packs in 140 calories per 1/4 cup, that’s about 280 calories per serving! So I suggest you avoid this morning breakfast and have something else…

Fruit Smoothies

Fruit Smoothies pack in a lot of calories, if you constantly drink Fruit Smoothies at Jamba Juice and are not choosing the “Jamba Light” option then you really are packing on a lot of weight. Jamba’s Peanut Butter Moo’dĀ® for example contains about 840 calories. That’s 160 calories more than a medium chocolate shake at Burger King!

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

All these food items have secret calories that you wouldn’t expect to find these are supposed to be HEALTH products! Be careful what you get nowadays and be especially careful about what you believe food products to be. Not everything is as great as what it says it is…

Weight Lifting: Protein Powder

Posted by Saito on March 27, 2009

I have been taking this protein powder for about four months now and I am seeing some surprising results, it really works!!

Q & A

Really? It works? How does it work?

The protein powder I have been taking for the past four months is called “Night Trainer”. It’s a special chocolate flavored drink your only supposed to take before bed time. Its supposed to help you regain energy after a work out, you don’t tire as easy when you lift weights.

Alright I’ll take your word on that, how do I take it?

It comes with a special scooper already, you take a single heaping amount of Night Trainer into your cup. Add some milk stir it in and drink it. Its a really sticky mixture and can freeze like cement on your spoon, so just be aware =D.

– – – – – – – –

It has great flavor, I have not been disappointed with it the benefits have been great!! You may start to see better results after about two weeks (and a bit more definition with your muscles)

You can get it here: Night Trainer

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Dark Chocolate Benefits Your Health?!!

Posted by Saito on February 6, 2009

D Chocolate

My gosh yes it DOES!! CELEBRATE buy a bar of Dark Chocolate while your at it :D!

Q & A

Wait what? It can benefit your health? I’ve heard so many rumors, what exactly can you benefit from it?

1. Dark Chocolate contains Phenyl Ethylamine, a mild mood elevator.

2. Having a cup of Hot Chocolate can reduce your appetite (sweet!)

3. Guys who consume Dark Chocolate are said to live an entire year longer then guys who don’t eat Dark Chocolate…(wow I’ll live one whole year longer…)

4. Dark Chocolate increases the amount of antioxidants in you’re blood!

5. The carbs in Dark Chocolate can raise your serotonin levels, it gives you a sense of well-being šŸ˜€

Ok now for the rumors, can you clear up some things said about Dark Chocolate? Like it might cause acne?

1. IT DOES NOT CAUSE ACNE *WOOT*

2. Dark Chocolate is NOT addictive, so if you just crave Dark Chocolate its out of pure pleasure.

3. Dark Chocolate does not cause you to go “high”. You know, loony um up in the clouds…get the picture? šŸ˜€

4. Just for the record, it does not raise bad cholesterol!!

So if I eat Dark Chocolate, I’m ok? No guilt?

Absolutely no guilt at all! Feel free to eat Dark Chocolate and enjoy every bite šŸ˜€


What about Milk Chocolate? Is it just as good?

Sadly no, its not good for you as Dark Chocolate is good for you. Milk Chocolate is high in calories, saturated fat and sugar. šŸ˜¦

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I’m glad that it actually benefits us!! Now we can enjoy Dark Chocolate and not feel guilty about anything šŸ˜€

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS NOT YOUR FRIEND: Part 2

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Hey here is another update for you guys out there concerning High Fructose Corn Syrup…

Right now, just for bringing out my personal experiences, I’m going to discuss different brands of food I used to intake all the time…

For starters Hienz Ketchup…yep that’s right my KETCHUP had unhealthy amounts of High Fructose Corn Syrup. I would always use it with my morning hash browns, burgers, french fries really ANYTHING that had to have ketchup to go with it…I now look back and I remember all that time I used this brand of ketchup and not realize the damage it caused my body…BUT there is so much more still to post it was in almost EVERYTHING me and my family owned!

The brand of Mayonnaise my parents used to buy was called Best Foods, and it was mostly High Fructose Corn Syrup. I was not as big on the Mayonnaise as I was Ketchup but my father loved it, including my entire family everybody consumed it…they also noted that they were looking a bit flabby in some area’s just like I HAVE and that was from the Mayonnaise!

Every lunch break after school I would eat one pickle, I use to think oh it’s just a cucumber dipped in a tasty brine…nothing wrong with that :D. I one day got curious after learning about HFCS and examined the back of the pickle jar…no it couldn’t be; yep it was HFCS was one of the main ingredients for the brine…

Well those three things were the basic food items I would daily consumed along with healthy products…and if I tried something something new out of the refrigerator I would continue to consume more HFCS we were completely unaware of the disgusting over dose…

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner HFCS…ever day it was like that. I remember most of the other odd things I would eat/drink that had High Fructose Corn Syrup…

Let’s start with drinks. My mom and I loved Coca Cola, we must have had at least two a day…when we were just discovering the harmful effects of HFCS we took a look at the ingredients our Coke’s were full of…not only did it have HFCS but it also had the equivalent of SEVEN teaspoons of sugar per can…yeah I know gross…

After that we got scared, what about are other juices/soft drinks? Well we would get a brand of guava juice made by Curns and so were thinking Oh it’s all natural, and so tasty it must be healthy…we took a look at the back of the juice box and found HFCS second to the top of all the ingredients. Oh great, now it’s in our juices we thought used to be completely natural…what is going on?

We examined the obvious items that would have HFCS…are sugary products. We had a brand of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, the ingredients they showed on the back had HFCS first on the list…yeah really disgusting, I always seemed to feel sick after having ice cream or chocolate milk…it was to sugary the HFCS was to much…

Well those were the products that I can recall the most as I used them often in my food…how disgusting everyday I would ingest so much extra fat! I now know what gave me obesity and health problems…like acne for an example :/

If you know about products that contain HFCS post a comment explaining what it is and it’s brand name so we can alert others who might have the same food products, I’ll post it in the list of HFCS products below:

Brand Food type
Hienz/Ketchup

Best foods/Mayonnaise

Kosher Dill/Pickles

Coca Cola Co./Soda

Curns/Guava

The Hershey Company/Chocolate Syrup
