Cereal is Bad for Weight Loss

Let’s repeat that again. Cereal is bad for weight loss.

Why?

A majority of cereals have a lot of sugar. When mixed with milk, it is a double whammy on your dieting goals.

If you are serious about losing weight, enjoy yourself a hard boiled egg instead of a bowl of cereal. Then when you are hungry, snack on some cashews and nuts.

Sure, the food choices are not exciting. You want to loss weight right? Then eat healthy.

Junk Food, Binge Drinking, and Lack of Exercise

Does the headline describe the lifestyle you grew up with? Then welcome to bulge generation that is contributing to record numbers being treated in hospitals for obesity. 18-30 year old’s don’t know how to live healthy anymore.

Change.

  1. Start by eating better. Cut out the fast food and junk food from your diet. Educate yourself on better nutrition.
  2. Stop drinking so much. The culture of Thirsty Thursdays, and pub crawling Fridays are getting out of hand.
  3. Pick up a real sport or activity. Gaming on your Xbox, or play WOW will only make your butt bigger.

There’s more to life than ice cream, beer / wine, and sitting in front of the television / computer.

Possible Junk Food Tax

Unhealthy eating and foods continue to contribute to the obesity epidemic the same way that smoking contributes to increase incidences of lung cancer. While food corporations make money off sugar water and snacks, they help to create a vicious cycle of obese consumers who cannot control themselves from opening a pack of potato chips or downing a couple of cheap carbonated sugar drinks.

Health experts want to curb the cost of obesity and diabetes by proposing a tax over junk food, and apply that extra money to subsidize and promote healthier foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables.

Kelly Clarkson Weight Fluctuations

Ever since winning American Idol, Kelly Clarkson has been comfortable with her weight, and being bigger than the other girls.

After becoming a mother, Kelly Clarkson put on some post-baby weight.

She admits that her weight issues may stem from having a little too much wine, since a glass of wine has as much calories as a can of coke.

Fruit Juice is As Fattening as Beer

Fruit juice may be advertised as healthy, but the number of calories are as much as beer. Next time you crave fruit juice, go for the whole fruit that is unprocessed with all the minerals and vitamins still intact. (You know fruit juice is not what it appears when manufacturers have to inject extra vitamins into the juices to make it more appealing.)

Replace fruit juice with water and whole fruits, then you are well on your way of losing weight.
