Cookies & Dieting

A cookie certainly isn't going to destroy your diet.

On the other hand, a tough, untasty cookie lump is going to leave you totally unsatisfied which may mean trotting back to the cookie jar and grabbing not one, but a handful of  good-tasting cookies. See, we just saved over 300 calories in this one little sentence!

Fruit in the Daily Diet, a Wise & Healthy Choice for Dieters

Pomegranates are beautiful in salads and also make a luscious juice. Be careful of the dye as it may stain.

Pomegranate Calories - About 50 Calories per 3 ounces which is about 1/2 a medium pomegranate.

Fruit also helps fill up that empty spot in your tummy so you'll be feeling content while your co-worker hits the vending machine for that cupcake at mid-morning break.

Fat, Sugar, Calories & Carb Tips

Fats & Weight Loss

A large bucket of buttered popcorn at the movies contains about 1,650 calories - probably more calories that your diet plan contains for an entire day.

Cutting Sugar for Losing Excess Pounds

How many calories does a 32 ounce soda at the movies contain? About 450. Opt for the diet offerings instead. How many calories?   Zero.

Sensible Carbohydrates

Good Carbs vs Bad Carbs - When carb dieting opt for complex carbs over simple carbs.

Example of complex carb: brown rice
Example of simple carb: donut

Calories for Waist Trimming

Calories count - so count those calories! Counting calories is one of the most accurate ways (if not the most accurate way) of controlling and managing weight.
