Posted by Saito on June 11, 2009

K guys this topic is important, popular restaurants with bad food makes a bad combination. But they have their good sides…you just have to know exactly what’s crap and what’s good to eat. Let’s mark The Top 6 Restaurants To Watch Out For:

1. Applebees

Your typical “Grilled Steak Caesar Salad with toast” may appear light and friendly to your waste line at first…but note that this is a Caesar Salad! (Seen my other posts? Caesar Salad had become toxic!! They have ruined a great salad…stay away unless it’s your own creation of the tasty salad.) Now for the statics…the Caesar salad at Applebees has about 1,296 calories, 83 grams and worst of all 2,200 milligrams of sodium.

Conclusion: Avoid if all possible.

2. Cheese Factory

“Stuffed Chicken Tortillas” are one of those killers that seriously pack on the pounds, statistics: 1,097 calories, 43 grams of fat and last but not in any way the least 2,647 milligrams of sodium…

Conclusion:
*Appetite has been ruined*

3. Chili’s

They have a meal that can really make your waste line fill in, their “Onion String Crispy Jalapeno Stack” appetizer is an incredible waste product for your body, statistics: 2,130 calories, 213 grams of fat and 1,320 milligrams of sodium.

Conclusion: Are we talking about normal food here?! Why ruin so much good food 😦

4. T.G.I. Friday’s

Yuck already as we look at the “Pecan-Crusted Chicken Salad”…this little number has about 750 calories and 10 pats of butter!!

Conclusion:
That’s way too much butter how can people choke it down…

5. Outback Steakhouse

“Aussie-tizers Kookaburra Wings with Sauce” are not the best appetizers out there…you eat this mini-meal and you’ll be getting 1,160 calories and 75 grams of fat!!

Conclusion: I like my main meal, the appetizer’s really aren’t necessary unless you want to fatten up!

6. Ruby Tuesdays

“Ruby Minis” are the killers in this restaurant, they pack on 1,122 calories and about 14 pats!!

Conclusion: STAY AWAY FROM APPETIZERS IN GENERAL…unless it’s fruit (lol) or just veggies.

Well guys, if ever you go to these restaurants or any restaurant for that matter…ask around. Find the info for the food your eating, be sure your not eating crap. Try to find the right food’s 😉

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

This Teens Weight Loss Plan Holiday Special: Aftermath

Posted by Saito on December 29, 2008

Whoa! That was a great Christmas! I’m sure everybody had great quality time with family and friends, but we still have one holiday left AND leftovers.

Now I don’t know about you guys but I would LOVE some of the sugary treats from a Christmas feast, and I know I can do it the smart way. I just simply balance my intake :D. We had pre-made cheesecake (just to warn you guys, normally if you buy something from a store that is pre-made it could very much so have High Fructose Corn Syrup mixed in, so be careful how much cheese cake you have and try to have it plain since the pre-made cherry dressing normally contains HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) as a sweetener yuck) this time for Christmas, I see a slice AND I WANT IT! But I know it’s just processed sugar…what can I do to balance the bad sugar with?

Well I take an orange or strawberry and I eat it with my cheesecake, I eat the cheesecake and gain a lot of sugar…but if I balance it with NATURAL sugar it seems to dilute the other bad sugar. Afterwords I make a nice microwaved ham sandwich, I don’t put cheese on my sandwich I put other things I like on it and with it; like mushrooms or avocado’s after it’s done cooking, with a dill pickle on the side. After eating that I wash it all down with fresh, cold milk (or water or tea)…yum…

That’s ONE scenario, that is not the only sugary treat I have after Christmas…

I have three other treats I’d like to discuss: Chocolate Pudding Pie, Apricot Scones and Hot Chocolate (very good)

1. I enjoy Chocolate Pudding Pie, it’s fantastic!

When I see a pie slice of Chocolate Pudding Pie I have to have it! So when I take out a slice I like to dilute my sugar intake. I have a glass of milk so it runs down smoothly, then I have some eggs over easy to go with it. It’s very nice and warm when I have eggs over easy and it’s pretty simple to cook up. I feel satisfied and healthy after eating both the Chocolate Pudding Pie and the eggs over easy it settles well.

2. Apricot Scones are one of the best breakfast treats you could have in the morning…

But they are also very fattening lol. So with my Apricot Scones I make oatmeal. I normally pour some brown sugar on top of it (I suggest if you have a Trader Joe’s In you’re area try and get Brown Sugar from there, it’s organic and natural :D) it just gives it that kick you need to have a great oatmeal breakfast, after eating all of that I wash it down either with Orange Juice or Milk (both will work and if your Lactose Intolerant just take the Orange Juice)

3. Last but not least HOT CHOCOLATE!

I don’t know what everybody normally uses to make Hot Chocolate, and I know it’s pretty convenient to make from a packet, but that normally contains unhealthy processed sugar and other ingredients that our body’s don’t need…my mother though has found a way to avoid all of that. She makes homemade Hot Chocolate with Hershey’s Cocoa Powder (the instructions are normally on the side of the tin container), she set’s it in a pan and cooks it over our stove . She adds her own ingredients that are healthy for us, the sugar she uses for one thing is from Trader Joe’s and is completely organic and natural when we buy it from there (it’s called Organic Evaporated Sugar Cane just for the record :D); it makes our Hot Chocolate tastier and we feel guilt free after having a homemade sugary treat. After it’s done broiling we can enjoy our treats guilt free…

Now these are just my personal experiences after Christmas, try to follow my example; just balance your sugary treats with a healthy snack on the side and you will avoid all the aftermath.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the next update :D.

Weight Losing tips: Second Step

Posted by Saito on December 8, 2008

Check out the next update called Third Step

Stay away from cheese, let me explain why.

Cheese is concentrated milk, so whatever amount of fat you had in your milk was doubled in your cheese…it’s eating chunks of starchy food oil :(. Since cheese is so fatty I tend to stay away from it, but having it in small amounts is fine, just don’t have it in everything you choose to eat.

I go to Taco Bell often with my family to get a tasty cheap lunch, but everything there mostly has cheese in everything. So how do you avoid it, still get great flavor and stay healthy in one meal? Here is what I do…I normally order 3 soft taco’s with lettuce and ground beef, I also ask the taco’s to be without cheese. To get the great flavor in a soft taco I just add their Taco Bell sauce inside all three soft taco’s and I get a great lasting flavor throughout all three taco’s. If I want chips and dip on the side I don’t take the cheese dip and I have my chips with Taco Bell sauce, lol still tasty with a spicy tang :D. This is just one location I go with my family for food, I also go to a few other places…

Round Table. Yeah, sometimes my family and I can’t resist the awesome flavor of cheesy pizza. Having pizza every now and then is ok and since I live in America I get it modern style lol. When I walk up to the counter with my parents they order an extra large pizza with extra sauce and we find our spot to sit waiting for the pizza. Normally they hand us cups for soda or water and I now always get the water, Round Table usually has a salad bar, so with it they had a few lemons by the soda fountain, I squeezed some lemons in my water and the flavor was great, perfect replacement for soda :D. I go back to sit down and the pizza is done and brought over for us to enjoy, I grab my slice of pizza, but before I eat I get up and go to the salad bar and grab a large amount of salad so I won’t eat to much pizza. After that I go back and have two slices of pizza (if you can try to keep your amount of pizza to two slices) and then my salad, it’s great and I get whatever healthy thing I want on it that appeals to me. Then afterwards we get up and leave, I feel pretty good about my self when we go and energized because I had a great balanced diet without to much cheese, I don’t have to feel guilty at all, just healthy 😀

Now you know what I do to avoid too much cheese, in some places like Taco Bell I avoid it completely, but in places like Round Table I balance the cheese I have on my pizza with lemon water and a healthy salad, it’s not that hard to avoid cheese. Just take simple steps to avoid it, if your having a sandwich and normally have cheese replace it with a layer of lettuce/tomatoes instead or if you still want cheese on your sandwich only add a small amount and have a healthy snack on the side, it’s that easy and simple to do :D.

Stay posted for the next step 😀
