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.

How To Deal With Spring Time Allergies

Posted by Saito on March 19, 2009

Normally in spring time allergies are common for most people (I happen to be one of them). Sneezing, irritated eyes, itchy throat etc. these are all apart of spring times allergy reactions and I have only mentioned a few…and I’m dedicating this post to helping you fight spring time allergies.

Q & A

Okay, what should I do first?

When you have a serious allergy problem you should drink plenty of water as a start (to flush out any pollen or substance in your body that is causing you a problem). Next I would suggest that you stay indoors more then spending too much time outside (you will only keep agitating your allergies further by exposing them).


Okay I can deal with that, would you suggest that I take anything? Some form of medicine?

Yes definitely, I would suggest you should take Benadryl:

Benadryl is a great product that really does work. I would suggest you take the liquid children’s Benadryl (my family and I always take liquid childrens benadryl), its easy to take and you only need about a teaspoon worth of it. The only problem with it is that benadryl makes you drowsy, but you’d have to cope with it since it is helping you deal with your allergies.

That’s really all I can say for dealing with spring time allergies. Allergies suck and I know its a pain to deal with them, but I like to look at the bright side; I keep telling myself hang in there summer’s coming!! XD

Well guys post a comment and let me know if you have any suggestions on how to deal with allergies 😀
Stay tuned for the next update =D.
