Healthy food for me. I need to lose weight and I want to start eating healthy.?

Answer by Glazbinator
– Every meal and snack should contain some protein and fiber to help fill you up & keep you full.

– Your protein sources should be lean (e.g. fish, chicken, beans & legumes (also a source of fiber), tofu, nuts & seeds…)

– You should eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables… in their whole form is best. Also, keep in mind that they lose nutrients the longer they sit after being picked, so sometimes frozen is a better option. and be careful for pesticides… always wash your fruits & veggies before eating them!

– If you consume dairy products, make sure to keep them low fat or fat-free. You could also substitute milk alternatives such as soy, almond, or rice milk (and cheese, yogurt, etc…)

– The majority, if not all, of your grain products should be whole-grain. This can be whole wheat, oatmeal, quinoa, bulgur, amaranth, barley, brown rice, etc… the possibilities are virtually endless! Don’t eat refined grains! This is one of the biggest downfalls for people trying to lose weight. They spike your blood sugar and make you hungry again in an hour. Not to mention they have much fewer nutrients than whole grains, and the ones that are there are added in artificially… yuck!

Hope I helped & good luck!

How do I get a six pack? I want answers from people who never had it before and was able to work to get one..?

Answer by CW
Alright man, many things factor into obtaining a six-pack. The fact is though, you already have a six-pack (everyone does). It’s just covered by fat (either a thin layer, or a huge stack).

So, the first important aspect is diet. You MUST eat right to obtain the best results. No more greasy, fast food shit. You need alot of whole grain foods (wheat, cereals, oats, ect.), next you will need to eat more vegetables and fruits, and of course good quality protein (chicken, nuts, fish, hell even a protein shake), and NO SODAS whatsoever… water, water, and more water. Try to eat 6 small meals a day (this will boost your metabolism and help you loose that layer of fat over your abs)

Next, Fitness. You will need to do alot of cardio exercise to help you loose some weight around the waist. Run, treadmill, stair climber, ect. Along with that you will need good core workouts (body planks, sit ups, push ups, and crunches. Remember sit ups alone won’t get you anywhere. You have to do alot more workouts than just sit ups.

Keep up with the exercise routine and diet, and please be patient. Results won’t happen over night.

Best of luck! 🙂

How can I eat healthy when my family eats so unhealthy (want recipes)?

Question by ℬℓỉѕѕƒυℓdяεąmsღ: How can I eat healthy when my family eats so unhealthy (want recipes)?
I’m concerned about my health. I want to eat healthier but my family brings home too much junk food for my 3 siblings. I do have willpower but I never have anything else to eat for dinner or when I get hungry, so I turn to the unhealthy food. I do have fruits and vegetables but I don’t like eating them by itself. Any tips on how to eat healthy? Also anyone know any recipes with healthy food that taste good? (I like avocados.)

Answer by Emma
I’m impressed! Good for you in desiring/seeking a healthy alternative..

One of the simplest remedies, for when you are depending on someone else to provide the ingredients for your meals, is a ‘chef salad’ of sorts:

1) put lettuce in a bowl (spring greens are awesome and can be purchased pre-packaged; romaine lasts a long time..simply moisten a paper towel or two, squeeze dry and wrap the lettuce with it, then place in a plastic bag in the fridge)

2) pile on cooked shredded/chopped meat of any sort you have in the fridge

3) chopped hard boiled eggs

4) cooked pasta or rice

5) any fresh or canned vegies you like

6) sprinkle with shredded or diced cheese of your choice (including parmesan/romano/asiago types)

7) add your favorite dressing or salt/pepper/oil/vinegar & croutons or crumbled crackers or bacon or toasted sunflower seeds

Mix or match or add additional ingredients to your liking.

This quick meal includes fiber, protein, carbohydrates, etc and can be quite filling and healthy…

edited to add: perhaps you could add to the family grocery list so that you have some of these ingredients on hand?

A Tipping Point Is Nearing
By Jeff T. Allen
We are facing a tipping point. There will soon be a crisis affecting US citizens beyond any experienced since the Great Depression. And it may happen within the year. This past week three awful developments put a dagger into the hope for a growth-led recovery, which held promise of possibly averting a debt and currency implosion crushing the American economy.

The first was a little-noticed, but tragic, series of events in the newly elected House of Representatives. The speaker, Mr. Boehner, had given the task of fashioning the majority’s spending cut agenda to Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), a rising conservative star representing the vocal wing of fiscal conservatives in the House. Promising to cut 0 billion of government spending, Mr. Boehner spoke before the elections of the urgency to produce immediately when Republicans took control.

Out of a .8 trillion government spending agenda, the wonkish Mr. Ryan, considered by many to be the best hope for fiscal conservatives, revealed proposed cuts of a whopping billion. After some tense meetings, (referred to as a "revolt" by some media) newly elected conservative congressmen convinced the leadership to commit to unspecified cuts of an additional billion. The actual "cuts" from any such legislation will, of course, be less once the appropriate political log rolling and deal-making are done- let’s call it billion (while the deficit grows by billion during the week it takes to discuss it). So go the hopes for serious spending restraint from our newly elected wave of rabid, anti-big government Republicans. They may deliver cuts 1.3% of total spending that is itself approximately 90% greater than collected taxes. Let’s mark this spending reduction effort as an epic fail, at a time when epic success is almost required for survival.

The second awful development to occur last week was the employment report from the Labor Department, describing employment conditions in the U.S. economy in January, 2011. The report was packed with statistics, all pointing to anemic growth with a modest pickup in manufacturing employment. The little-noticed (not by the bond market) aspect of the report was the "benchmark" revisions, an attempt to get the total picture more accurate each year than simply adding up all the monthly change numbers. This year’s benchmark revisions showed two alarming things: a decline from previously reported employment in December 2010 of nearly 500,000 jobs, and a reduction in the workforce of a similar amount.

Coupled with insistence from the Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that the Fed intended to continue "quantitative easing" (a euphemism for monetizing the bonded debt of the federal government), the employment data caused bond holders to assume there will be no end to the red ink. Ten-year U.S. bonds lost a full percent of their value, declining a total of 18% since Bernanke announced the acceleration of Fed policy in August 2010. The yield on these bonds has increased from an ultra-low 2.4% in August to 3.65% today, as the Fed repeatedly describes inflation in the U.S. as too low.

In context, a 3.7% yield does not appear high by historical standards. In our current predicament, however, it is heading toward Armageddon. If interest rates on our debt rise by 1% it means our interest payments rise by more than 0 billion dollars annually (not including the interest payments owed to the Social Security Trust Fund–see below). As global liquidity and deficit spending have accelerated, food and commodity prices have skyrocketed, sending many prices up 25-50% worldwide since August. In some countries (Tunisia and Egypt among them) rice prices and cooking oil have doubled. Copper is up 40% in that time. If global inflation expectations take hold with tenacity, as they have many times in past periods of "easy money" by our Fed and Congress, interest rates may easily rise to 5-6%, an event which will blow an additional 0-500 billion hole in a budget already beyond sanity. Can our creditors give the U.S. a nod on trillion of new debt each year without any plan to fix it? Remember, there is plenty of past experience with U.S. debt yielding 7-8%, a potential expenditure on our current debt of nearly 100% of tax receipts to pay interest alone should yields go there.

The third development of the last week which received much less press than the Egyptian crisis is the "new normal" in Social Security. The CBO released a report disclosing that the net cash flow for the Social Security trust fund — excluding interest received from the book entry bonds it holds in U.S. debt — will be negative billion in 2011, and for every year hence even more so. This is the train wreck that was supposed to happen in 2020. It is upon us now. Any limp action by conservatives to bring this program into solvency can be expected only to slow the raging river of red ink this behemoth program (along with its twin Godzilla, Medicare) spills on U.S. citizens. With no political will to fix them, these "entitlements" will obligate Americans to borrow more and more money from China–to honor promises we simply refuse to admit we can’t keep.

So why do these developments argue for a crisis of Great Depression proportions? Because they speak unequivocally of our pathway to insolvency, and the potential of currency failure via hyperinflation, despite the hopes of conservatives and market participants to see a halt of such direction. Housing prices, the foundation of so much of private citizen debt loads, are destined for stagnation — not inflation — as the supply of homes is far greater than the demand — 11% of the nation’s homes stand empty today. When the world begins to recognize that there is no fix for America’s borrowings, a fast and brutal exodus from our currency and bonds can send us a shock in mere weeks or months.

Unlike the Great Depression, however, we will enter such a shock in a weakened state, with few producers among us and record mountains of debt. More cataclysmic is the specter of inadequate food, as less than 4% of us farm, and those that do may cease to be as productive or may not accept devalued currency as payment, should the tipping point be crossed. Corn and wheat prices in the U.S. have nearly doubled in less than 12 months, using our rapidly evaporating currency as the medium of exchange.

The time for action has passed, which may only become apparent as the "aid" of easy money becomes seen as the harm that it is. May we all be spared the worst, but I offer no such prayers for those responsible. The harm that comes will be swifter, and more severe, than most of them thought possible.
