Kicking Your Diet To The Curb
4 tips on creating a healthy lifestyle
Whether you are a seasoned athlete or an average Joe or Joan that is looking to lose weight and get fit here are a few rules to make your quest and keep your health and sanity.
Drop That Diet
Living well isn't about being on a diet, it's about establishing sustainable patterns of good behavior. Restrictive diets don't work for adults because they collide with our all-too-human nature. As soon as you can't have the bread or the beef, you want it. For children, rigorous diets are a potential disaster. "They can set the stage for rebellion or serious diseases like anorexia," says Sylvia Rimm, Ph.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University and the author of Rescuing the Emotional Lives of Overweight Children.
Give Yourself A Break Today
Don't turn favorite foods into forbidden pleasures. Just don't eat them every day. Think about how often you're eating foods that may damage your diet. Then mitigate, have the sausage you love one day, and then have Canadian bacon or turkey sausage on other days. Moderation is key.
Be Nutrient Dense
Research from the University of California at Berkeley recently determined that nearly one-third of the average American's diet is pure junk. But a quick scan of the Nutrition Facts on food labels can turn all that trash into treasure, no degree required. Choose foods that are high in nutrient density-foods that deliver the most nutrients for the fewest calories. Toss the ones with top-heavy labels-high calories that aren't underpinned by vitamins and minerals.
Eat More Food
When you eat a well-rounded meal, you're more likely to be full. You could have a big bowl of pasta for dinner and still be hungry, or you could stuff yourself silly with a piece of grilled chicken tossed with vegetables and forget the pasta, along with a salad and maybe some fruit for dessert. You can work this balance across the day, as well. If lunch was a carb-heavy episode, eat a piece of grilled beef with vegetables for dinner to balance it out.
Have an excellent day.

Low Glycemic Sugar Free Almond Cocoa Angel Food Cake
Carbs Per Serving: 12.95 g
Prep Time:<45 minutes
Skill Level: Easy
Low-fat and yet so chocolaty, this light cake is made extra special with a peach and raspberry sauce. Use different fruit combinations, such as apricots and strawberries or nectarines and blueberries, for a nice change of pace. Makes 1 9-inch cake, which can be cut into 8 slices.
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons + 1/2 cup Steviva Brand Stevia Blend
6 egg whites, at room temperature
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a dash of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
2 peaches, pitted and sliced
1/2 pint raspberries
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
To make the cake: In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and 6 tablespoons of the Steviva Brand Stevia Blend.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and almond extract. Increase the mixer speed to high. Gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form and the Steviva Brand Stevia Blend dissolves.
Fold the flour mixture, one-third at a time, into the beaten whites. Place in an un greased Angel Food Cake pan (or equivalent) and bake for 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn upside down on a rack and cool for 30 minutes.
To make the fruit sauce: In a small saucepan, whisk together the orange juice, cornstarch, and Steviva Brand Stevia Blend. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the peaches and raspberries. Let cool.
