Forget all the glitzy adverts for the latest must have diet product. The only way to lose weight successfully is by following the calorie reduction diet.
Fluctuations in your body weight are caused by consuming more energy than you use up. Our system converts extra food energy (calories)
to fat and we put on pounds. Our body is actually protecting itself by storing food to prevent starvation if we do not have enough to eat. Worked quite well in the old days when people often went hungry but these days, the result is a nation suffering from obesity.

Some vegetables have a natural sweetness, like carrots, but you can’t detect it in the canned variety. The canning process not only preserves the food but also removes some of the nutrients.Click here to continue reading

Saw this today and thought I would share.
Just as you were starting to feel virtuous for having switched from sugary sodas to low- or no-calorie substitutes, a new study comes along suggesting that diet sodas might be bad for your head and your heart.
The study, which followed more than 2,500 New Yorkers for nine or more years, found that people who drank diet soda every day had a 61 percent higher risk of vascular events, including stroke and heart attack, than those who completely eschewed the diet drinks, according to researchers who presented their results today at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles.
Makes you think…is diet soda really that much better?
