Do I have to give up desserts?

Can't Give Up Desserts?

It isn't necessary to permanently give up desserts. To do so might jeopardize the best of intentions, so instead of giving up everything you love, make a deal with yourself. Dessert just once a day. You get to choose when is most appropriate for your lifestyle.

   
Is snacking at night a bad thing?

Doesn't Matter When You Eat

According to Penny Kris-Etherton, a nutrition expert at Penn State University, it doesn't really matter when you eat as long you are aware of HOW MUCH you eat.
Yes, calories still count but if you want to snack at night, apparently, it doesn't really matter.

   
What can I do to change my bad snacking habits?

Watch what you eat

It's easy to chow down on a supersized fast food meal for lunch every day, but your body won't thank you for it. Resist weight gain, high blood pressure, and increased cholesterol by introducing heart-healthy foods into your diet. Swap your donut for a fruit salad with low-fat yogurt and your burger with lean chicken or fish and a salad. Small changes every day will add up to decreased likeliness of disease, more energy, and a smaller figure.

   
How can I maintain my diet when snack attacks occur?

Sharing

Here is a quick trick if you find yourself with nightly snack attacks. Stock up on LARGE oranges and then eat half. The other half can go to your significant other. They don't know it, but you just helped control their calorie intake as well as your own. And yes, half an orange usually will be enough to satisfy most snack attacks.

   
Are you drinking enough water each day?

Drink Up

Eight glasses of water a day may seem like a lot, but if you fill a water bottle and carry it around with you throughout the day, you will be amazed at how fast it disappears.

   

5 Tricks to Combat Aging with Essential Vitamins and Nutrients

Birthdays come every year whether you want to celebrate the day or not, but that's no reason to toddle off into your golden years without putting up a fight. Wrinkles, stiff knees, and general fatigue tend to plague us as we get older, but there are a few foods and vitamins that will help make that next birthday easier to bear.

1. Calcium

Broken hips, weak bones, and skeletal fragility are common with low calcium intake. With at least one in every three adults over the age of 65 experiencing a fall each year, hefty calcium intake might be the only way to avoid a broken bone or serious infection.

2. Vitamin D

Bones don't absorb calcium if there's no vitamin D in the body. Older adults don't process this essential micronutrient well, so vitamin D supplements are something to consider. Get more vitamin D from a daily walk in the sun.

3. Vitamins C & E

The word "antioxidant" is a popular label on today's anti-aging creams, and with good reason. Cells aren't damaged as easily and don't age as fast when vitamins C and E are on the case.

4. Olive Oil

Mediterranean cultures enjoy a low rate of heart disease, and scientists believe it's the olive oil in their diet. Try using olive oil to fry food instead of vegetable oil.

5. Fish

Fish is the best source of omega-3 and may be one of the best ways to prevent heart disease. In the U.S., cardiovascular disease kills more people than any other disease. If you don't like fish, try finding some omega-3 supplements.
