The Top Five Common Eating Mistakes…

Posted by Saito on July 6, 2009

There are five common mistakes people think actually help them lose weight and stay healthy…they couldn’t have made a worse “mistake”; this completely effects “us teens” and our life style, we have to let our parents know what they are mistakenly doing:

1. Truthfully, we can’t tell the good fats from the bad fats.

Alice Lichtenstein, DSc, an American Heart Association spokesperson says, “Most people still don’t get that some fats are actually good for you, You want to avoid saturated and trans fats, but you need more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Good sources are fish, nuts, avocados, and soybean and canola oils.”I know, half of that seems to be just a bunch of “yadyada” but still it’s a great source of info all the same.

2. To save money…most adults stoop down to take out.

Now I know it’s just necessary to have take out from a fast restaurant, it’s so convenient. But truthfully, calorie-wise, this fattening-pricey mistake can cost you more then you realize. Karen Weber Cullen, DPH, RD, research nutritionist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston *pant* says, “People think that supersizing a restaurant meal is a money saver, but it’s not a health bargain if it has way too many calories.” My suggesting…rethink fast-food restaurant strategies =D.

3. Lol some people “imagine” that anything liquid doesn’t have any calories whatsoever…ooo that’s one BIG mistake.

You have to realize (or rather adults realize) that most liquid products DO have some kind of sugar within them…
Judith Stern, ScD, RD, professor of nutrition and internal medicine at the University of California, Davis *GASP* says, “What freaks me out is the amount of sugared soda and juice we drink. I’d like to see all the sugared drinks sent out into space, where they could orbit the Earth forever.” …yeah I know, she is “enthusiastic” about her work LOL. BUT I have to agree with her, ’cause it’s true…sugary soda and juice is not the right choice for any of us =)

4. K THIS is scary…we can’t really tell if were hungry…or not.

Elisabetta Politi, RD, nutrition manager of the Duke University Diet & Fitness Center in Durham, NC says, “If you don’t know when you’re hungry, you don’t know when you’re full, so you won’t know when to stop eating.” Too true, most of us really don’t know what “truly hungry” is…but as teens of course I’m sure we can decipher whether were hungry or just eating for pleasure…=P. Consult your doctor if you have though, a problem, deciphering whether your hungry or not.

5. Most American’s have what is called “Microwave Addiction”…

It means we rely heavily on processed microwavable goods…Jo Ann Hattner, RD, clinical dietitian at Stanford University Medical Center says, “Eating too many heavily processed foods can leave you short on fiber and antioxidants such as vitamin C.” You don’t want to be “missing something” like vitamin C in your diet, especially since we are still just teens and need all the help we can get <.<.

Helping your parents correct these "mistakes" will not only help you now, but obviously, later on in your life =D.

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

Summer Time: The Top Five Items You Need For Summer Weather

Posted by Saito on May 8, 2009

Hey guys! I believe it’s time to start preparing for summer weather.

Let’s see…The Top Five Items You Need For Summer Weather are:

1. The most important item to have with you is a water bottle!

water

No need for too much input, just keep a water around whether it’s outside or inside, temperatures cause your body to sweat more often and if your body is low on water that causes dehydration.

2. Sunscreen is a must

sunscreen

You always need at least a little bit of sunscreen when walking outside and absorbing the sunny rays. If you don’t use sunscreen and tend to burn your skin often, that can cause you Skin Cancer later on in life…so try to avoid that if possible 🙂

I also would like to recommend that you buy an Organic brand of sunscreen so that you don’t get any bad chemicals in your system which may cause you more harm then good.

3. A pair of sunglasses (as a normal thing) is even more useful in the summer time

We have to protect our eyes from damage right? So protecting our eyes from UV rays which come from sunlight is in our best interest when playing outside or just being outside for the sake of it.

4. Extra deodorant in the summer time is also very helpful

LiquidDeodorant

K when you sweat more often in summer time you tend to stink a lot more too. Being extra thorough would serve you well :).

5. In case of burns having some Aloe Vera gel on hand would really help

aloe-vera

It really helps when you use Aloe Vera over a burnt area of skin that needs to heal properly, I HIGHLY recommend Aloe Vera gel since I use it often to help heal my skin when it comes to Acne and if I have a burn that’s the first item I reach for :).

Well guys summer is an awesome time (and so is summer vacation!). I wish all of you guys a great summer and to also ask you guys to keep checking This Teens Weight Loss Plan.com for more updates.

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 😀

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? 😀

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 😀


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. 😦

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

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