Top 9 Deadliest Foods! You won't believe it!

Today I had this crazy idea! To scare you!! Boo! Haha! Not like that of course.. but even worse! I'm going to tell you the top 9 Deadliest Food according to HealthMad. It is the list in which I agree 100%!
Let's start counting!
9. Grilled or roasted Foods! Surprised?? What if I told you that eating a steak that came from your own barbeque could cause you gastric cancer or it was equivalent to the toxin of as much as 60 cigarettes?? I'm pretty sure that your first thought would be "You are a crazy bitch!! Get out of my house!!" Well, I'm not that crazy! When Triphenyl Sibing Topiramate (a carcinogenetic substance that we find in a high proportion in this type of food) comes to contact with the gastric mucosa, the possibility of getting gastric cancer is very high!
8. Frozen Dessert Products! I think you know that! Come on!! Obesity and diabetes is the more likely thing that will happen to you in case you put them in your dining table for the proper meal!
7. Junk food! That really heart! Who doesn't love junk food?? In my opinion, we all know and we all eat it! Hypertantion is the one of the things we can win over this!
6. Canned foods! Because of the aluminium many nutritional value is destroyed. In high proportion could cause Altzheimer's.
5. Instant foods! Simple, prolong intake may cause cancer, hypertantion, obesity etc. So no little packages in your kitchen!
4. Soft drinks! I was so miserable when I learned about it at school! Love soft drinks! I can't enjoy my food without it! Half of my joy went away! Sacrifices! This is big! Soft drinks contain phosphate, carbonate and these 2 evil things steal our calcium from our bones!
3. Processed Meat! Kidney problems!
2. Deep-fried foods! Impair memory, nerve and brain cells, depression. We find these chemicals into potato chips as well!
1. Pickled foods! I must say that I wasn't upset when I found about this! I hate pickled food! Cancer and harms your stomach! Microbes during the food process.
And for those that you 'll say "Just because this crazy stupid girl in a random blog says it so, it doesn't mean it's true! Well, people here is my source http://healthmad.com/nutrition/top-10-deadliest-foods/  !

Have fun people! Hope you learned something from this scary article! Always smile and remember amount counts on everything!

The pasta misunderstanding!

Who doesn't adore pasta!! With any sause or just cheese!! I'm fed up listening over and over again the same shit by clients! For example: "Oh! I don't eat carbs when I'm on a diet", huge mistake! You must know that carbs are a necessity! You won't have energy and many many other stuff! Another example: "Carbs make us fat", nooooooooooo!! The thing that makes you fat isn't the carbs, is the amount that you consume!!

So, I'm here to tell you a little secret! When I give a diet to a client (doesn't matter the weight he or she wants to loose) I always give them pasta and bread! Shocked?? They always loose weight and they don't get their weight back! At least not easily!

Pasta provides us vitamins B1, B2 and B3 and some minerals, such as phosphorus, magnesium, iron, calcium etc!! Pasta are low in fat and low in protein that's the reason we put sause on them! And in order to prove it check this out! 100g delivers your system 350 kcal. I'm sure you were expecting for more, which contains less than 1% fat!

To sum up, eat your pasta with a healthy sause or fish or vegetables! You can trick your kids and you will feel the taste of food back in your mouth!! Give your self a break!! A good and healthy portion for an average person is 1 cup! Once a week or once every two weeks will gain no weight to your body!

A happy client have more patience and more strength to go on! You eat and you loose weight! Your nutritionist isn't crazy and unreliable because gives you food! Remember that if a nutritionist gives a lower than 1200kcal per day, doesn't care for the maintenance of your lost weight.

Have fun and stay healthy!! Love you!

Quick solutions!

Helloooooooooooooooo guys!!! Hope you had fun the past few days! Easter is far gone and I get back to work! 

Today, I will give you some quick tips! You returned home after work, tired and the only thing you want to do is eat something and fall asleep! Understood! You are right!! But don't buy fast food or pizza! Just use your imagination!!

Make a smoothie! A blender, some fruits, yogurt, ice. Shake them up and you are ready! Will give you energy and will cool you during summer! Another thing you can do is the classic sandwich! 2 slices of bread, cheese, tomato, salami, egg and mustard! Healthy and easy!

If you are too tired and your fridge is half empty, you may enjoy a "poor" salad. Tuna can, lettuce, mustard sauce (1 ts olive oil, 1 ts vinegar, 1 ts mustard) Mix them all together and enjoy!! 

230 kcal per sandwich and 160 kcal per smoothie! But be carefull! Low fat yogurt, grainy bread, low fat cheese! 

Eat healthy in order to stay healthy!!

Easter is here! Let's talk about eggs!

Easter is here and I thought about eggs! Not chocolate eggs! Just the benefits of an egg! A single egg can help you in so many ways!! It's cheap, it's healthy and it has only 70 calories! Pay attention people!

Protein! An egg contains a highly quality of protein which means that gives energy and helps you feel full longer! Also, helps you build muscle strength!

Choline! Helps the brain function, prevents birth defects!

Lutein and zeaxanthin (antioxidants)! Helps your eyes stay healthy and also prevents the macular degeneration, a cause of age-related blindness!

In simple words! Remember this! Brain function, eye health, healthy pregnacy, muscle strength, weight management!

But you must be careful! Not more than 1 egg per day and if you are having cholesterol issues consult your doctor for the amount!

Happy Easter!! Have fun and be safe!

Menu board calories! Conspiracy?

This is a very weird stuff! The law enforced restaurants but junk food diners in their majority to have the calories of each dish on the menu. Nutritionists thought that this would help us! But it didn't!

It's pretty weird but it's true! In my oponion, the businesses gained from all this! You can't sue them because you gained weight (remember scandal that came with a movie). They saved money but we still eat these shit! Why?

Many theories have been developed by scientists but a few things have been actually proved. The only thing that is true is the huge amount of salt! Just like potato chips! More salt, more taste, more we want to eat! The thing we can do is read the ingredients and see the salt percentage.

Other theories seemed like conspiracy! People love conspiracy theories but don't love their bodies and their health! Don't try to translate the labels and see the calories! Junk is junk! We eat it because of its taste but we have to learn a way of controlling it! Eat junk food once per month or even better once per six months!

You can cook your own potato chips, your own burger and your own fast food! The taste will be better! I promise! Just try it one time! Just a few minutes for the preparation! Watch a movie with your own homemade pop corn! Especially if kids are involved!

Have fun and stay healthy!!

Summer time! Ice cream!

Hey world! Who doesn't love ice cream?? Whooooo??? I must say that the one who might say no.. is just a liar! Terrible liar! So, I will tell you the best choices in order not to lie to yourself! And eat it with no guilt! 

First! Not all ice creams have the same incredients. Many include added sugar, stabilizers, emulsifiers, flavorins and NONE of which contains nutrients (except from home made of course!). 

The nutritional value of each ice cream depends of the amount of cream or milk that contains!

A cup of ice cream (small one) contains 200 calories. Reduced fat ice cream contains 120 calories more or less. As far as nutrition is concerned numbers are disappointing.. a cup of ice cream contains 32g of carbs, 16g of fat which half of it is saturated and 5g protein. 

But don't get upset! Typically.. and when I say typically.. I mean typically.. an ice cream may contain vitamin A, B2, B12. But, I don't count on it!

Best choice! Ice cream with no cookies and syrup are the ones with lower calories. Go out there! Eat an ice cream with chocolate and enjoy it! You will need only half hour walking to burn it! It worths it!! Have fun!!

Coffee!! Yeah!!

Well, sorry for not posting anything these couple of days but I was really busy! But today I went to the beach and I enjoyed a cold coffee! So, I desided to write about coffee, pros and cons of course!

Because of April Fool's day, I have to declare that everything I am about to write is the truth and nothing but the truth!!
I 'll make it quick, I don't want to tire you! Sooooooooooo!

Pros------> antioxidants (I have already told you about these!!), parkinson's disease? No, thanks!, diabetes type 2? No, thanks (drinking coffee without sugar of course!), liver cirrhosis? No, thanks!, gallstones? Nooo!, kidney stones? Noooo!, increase information processing!, Alzheimers? Nooooo!, Asthma? Noooooo!


Cons-----> Dependence! (We all know that, but we like it), dehydration (we have to pee a lot!), lack of sleep, osteoporosis (coffee loves calcium :(, but you may drink a cup of milk two hours before or after your cup of coffee), blood pressure,  cholesterol.


I must add that the pros and cons are under certain circumstances. More than 4 cups per day for the cons and less than 3 cups per day for pros :) Remember our first principle! Amount counts!

Enjoy the rest of your day and have fun!!
