10 Tips To Reduce Fat In Your Diet
by Kathy Thompson

1. Steam, boil, broil, or microwave vegetables, or
stir-fry them in a small amount of vegetable oil.

2. Season vegetables with herbs and spices rather than
sauces, butter, or margarine.

3. Try lemon juice or fat-free dressing on salad, or
use a yogurt based dressing instead of mayonnaise or
sour cream dressing.

4. To reduce saturated fat, use vegetable oil or tub
margarine instead of butter or stick margarine when

5. Replace whole milk with skim or low-fat milk in
puddings, soups, and baked products. Substitute plain
non-fat yogurt, blender-whipped cottage cheese, low-fat
sour cream, or buttermilk in recipes that call for sour

6. Choose lean cuts of meat, and trim any visible fat
from meat before and after cooking. Remove skin from
poultry before or after cooking. Monitor portion sizes.
(Lean meats end in "loin".)

7. Roast, bake, or broil meat, poultry, or fish, so
that fat drains away as the food cooks.

8. Use a non-stick pan for cooking so added fat will
be unnecessary, use a vegetable spray for frying.

9. Chill broths from meat or poultry until the fat
becomes solid. Spoon off the fat before using the

10. Eat a low-fat vegetarian main dish at least once
a week.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

Did you know there are at least four great reasons to eat more fruits
and vegetables?

1) It is easy to do.

2) Almost all are low in calories and fat.

3) They are a good source of vitamins and minerals and provide fiber.

4) They may help reduce cancer risk.

Here are some actions to get you started and keep you going. Try two
or three actions now and try more later.

Buy many kinds of fruits and vegetables when you shop, so you have
plenty of choices, and you don't run out. Buy frozen, dried, and
canned as well as fresh fruits and vegetables.

First, use the fruits and vegetables that go bad easily (peaches,
asparagus). Save hardier varieties (apples, acorn squash) or frozen
and canned types for later in the week.

Use the salad bar to buy cut-up fruits/vegetables if you're in a

Keep a fruit bowl, small packs of applesauce, raisins or other
dried fruit on the kitchen counter, table, or in the office.

Pack a piece of fruit or some cut-up vegetables in your briefcase
or backpack; carry moist towelettes for easy cleanup.

Keep a bowl of cut-up vegetables on the top shelf of the

Add fruit to breakfast by drinking 6 oz of 100 percent fruit juice
or by having fruit on cereal.

Add fruits and vegetables to lunch by having them in soup, salad,
or cut-up raw.

Add fruits and vegetables to dinner by microwaving or steaming
vegetables and having a special fruit desert.

Increase portions when you serve vegetables and fruits. Season
them the low-fat way with herbs, spices, and lemon juice. If sauce
is used, choose a nonfat or low-fat sauce.

Choose fruit for dessert. For a special dessert, try a fruit
parfait with low-fat yogurt or sherbet topped with berries.

Add extra varieties of vegetables when you prepare soups, sauces,
and casseroles (for example, grate carrot and zucchini into
spaghetti sauce.

Gabe Davis Physique Transformation Rapid Muscle Growth Story Bodybuilding Before After Photos

Please read and be informed...knowledge is power...This information is vital to you, your finances, your health and your freedom!

***Please read this in it's entirety. It is imperative that we all begin reading these warnings. This doctor took the time from his schedule to read the entire (1900 pages) of the current Health Care Bill being pushed through Congress and the Senate. Its passage will have dire consequences to our country and to each of us and our children

Everyone should read this and pay close attention.

An Indianapolis doctor's letter to Sen. Bayh about the Bill (Note: Dr. Stephen E. Frazer, MD practices as an anesthesiologist in Indianapolis , IN )

Here is a letter I sent to Senator Bayh. Feel free to copy it and send it around to all other representatives. -- Stephen Fraser

July 23, 2009

Senator Bayh,

As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the health care bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the government's proposed involvement in the patient-physician relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a health care system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our health care system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through congress will be a disaster if passed.

I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow citizens.

Page 22 of the HC Bill: Mandates that the Govt will audit books of all employers that self-insure!!

Page 30 Sec 123 of HC bill: THERE WILL BE A GOVT COMMITTEE that decides what treatments/benefits you get.

Page 29 lines 4-16 in the HC bill: YOUR HEALTH CARE IS RATIONED!!!

Page 42 of HC Bill: The Health Choices Commissioner will choose your HC benefits for you. You have no choice!

Page 50 Section 152 in HC bill: HC will be provided to ALL non-US citizens, illegal or otherwise.

Page 58 HC Bill: Govt will have real-time access to individuals' finances & a 'National ID Health card' will be issued!

Page 59 HC Bill lines 21-24: Govt will have direct access to your bank accounts for elective funds transfer.

Page 65 Sec 164: Is a payoff subsidized plan for retirees and their families in unions & community organizations: (ACORN).

Page 84 Sec 203 HC bill: Govt mandates ALL benefit packages for private HC plans in the 'Exchange.'

Page 85 Line 7 HC Bill: Specifications of Benefit Levels for Plans -- The Govt will ration your health care!

Page 91 Lines 4-7 HC Bill: Govt mandates linguistic appropriate services. (Translation: illegal aliens.)

Page 95 HC Bill Lines 8-18: The Govt will use groups (i.e. ACORN & Americorps to sign up individuals for Govt HC plan.

Page 85 Line 7 HC Bill: Specifications of Benefit Levels for Plans. (AARP members - your health care WILL be rationed!)

Page 102 Lines 12-18 HC Bill: Medicaid eligible individuals will be automatically enrolled in Medicaid. (No choice.)

Page 12 4 lines 24-25 HC: No company can sue GOVT on price fixing. No "judicial review" against Govt monopoly.

Page 127 Lines 1-16 HC Bill: Doctors/ American Medical Association - The Govt will tell YOU what salary you can make.

Page 145 Line 15-17: An Employer MUST auto-enroll employees into public option plan. (NO choice!)

Page 126 Lines 22-25: Employers MUST pay for HC for part-time employees AND their families. (Employees shouldn't get excited about this as employers will be forced to reduce its work force, benefits, and wages/salaries to cover such a huge expense.)

Page 149 Lines 16-24: ANY Employer with payroll 401k & above who does not provide public option will pay 8% tax on all payroll! (See the last comment in parenthesis.)

Page 150 Lines 9-13: A business with payroll between $251K & $401K who doesn't provide public option will pay 2-6% tax on all payroll.

Page 167 Lines 18-23: ANY individual who doesn't have acceptable HC according to Govt will be taxed 2.5% of income.

Page 170 Lines 1-3 HC Bill: Any NONRESIDENT Alien is exempt from individual taxes. (Americans will pay.)

Page 195 HC Bill: Officers & employees of the GOVT HC Admin.. will have access to ALL Americans' finances and personal records.

Page 203 Line 14-15 HC: "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax." (Yes, it really says that!)

Page 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill: Govt will reduce physician services for Medicaid Seniors. (Low-income and the poor are affected.)

Page 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors: It doesn't matter what specialty you have trained yourself in -- you will all be paid the same! (Just TRY to tell me that's not Socialism!)

Page 253 Line 10-18: The Govt sets the value of a doctor's time, profession, judgment, etc. (Literally-- the value of humans.)

Page 265 Sec 1131: The Govt mandates and controls productivity for "private" HC industries.

Page 268 Sec 1141: The federal Govt regulates the rental and purchase of power driven wheelchairs.

Page 272 SEC. 1145: TREATMENT OF CERTAIN CANCER HOSPITALS - Cancer patients - welcome to rationing!

Page 280 Sec 1151: The Govt will penalize hospitals for whatever the Govt deems preventable (i.e...re-admissions).

Page 298 Lines 9-11: Doctors: If you treat a patient during initial admission that results in a re-admission -- the Govt will penalize you.

Page 317 L 13-20: PROHIBITION on ownership/investment. (The Govt tells doctors what and how much they can own!)

Page 317-318 lines 21-25, 1-3: PROHIBITION on expansion. (The Govt is mandating that hospitals cannot expand.)

Page 335 L 16-25 Pg 336-339: The Govt mandates establishment of=2 outcome-based measures. (HC the way they want -- rationing.)

Page 341 Lines 3-9: The Govt has authority to disqualify Medicare Advance Plans, HMOs, etc. (Forcing people into the Govt plan)

Page 354 Sec 1177: The Govt will RESTRICT enrollment of 'special needs people!' Unbelievable!

Page 379 Sec 1191: The Govt creates more bureaucracy via a "Tele-Health Advisory Committee." (Can you say HC by phone?)

Page 425 Lines 4-12: The Govt mandates "Advance-Care Planning Consult." (Think senior citizens end-of-life patients.)

Page 425 Lines 17-19: The Govt will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. (And it's mandatory!)

Page 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3: The Govt provides an "approved" list of end-of-life resources; & nbsp;guiding you in death.. (Also called 'assisted suicide.')

Page 427 Lines 15-24: The Govt mandates a program for orders on "end-of-life." (The Govt has a say in how your life ends!)

Page 429 Lines 1-9: An "advanced-care planning consultant" will be used frequently as a patient's health deteriorates.

Page 429 Lines 10-12: An "advanced care consultation" may include an ORDER for end-of-life plans. (AN ORDER TO DIE FROM THE GOVERNMENT?!?)

Page 429 Lines 13-25: The GOVT will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order. (I wouldn't want to stand before God after getting paid for THAT job!)

Page 430 Lines 11-15: The Govt will decide what level of treatment you will have at end-of-life! (Again -- no choice!)

Page 469: Community-Based Home Medical Services = Non-Profit Organizations. (Hello? ACORN Medical Services here!?!)

Page 489 Sec 1308: The Govt will cover marriage and family therapy. (Which means Govt will insert itself into your marriage even.)

Page 494-498: Govt will cover Mental Health Services including defining, creating, and rationing those services.

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.

Furthermore, if you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on the country and destroys the doctor-patient relationship, I will do everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next election.

Why Warmup Before Working Out?

1. Proper warmup helps prevent injuries. You need to sweat a little,
but don't get fatigued by the warmup.

2. Increases the removal of lactic acid accumulated during previous

3. Increases the efficiency of contracting muscles. Some light
stretching is good to get limbered up.

4. Research suggests neuromuscular coordination is enhanced by
warming up.

5. Improves coordination of individual exercises. (doing a warmup
set of an exercise before hitting the heavy weights)

6. Increases heart rate and speeds blood circulation.

7. Increases oxygen reserves to the muscles.

Be careful not to warm up too long because you don't want to use up your
energy for warming up instead of getting an intense workout. A good rule
of thumb is to elevate your heart rate, sweat lightly, and have an elevated
body temperature. 10-15 minutes on the treadmill is good to get your
body warmed up. Perform one light set of each exercise before you start
adding heavy weight to the exercise. This will help with your form.

Stretching is another important part of warming up and cooling down.
Stretching will help you get a full range of motion for the exercises that
you are about to perform. Stretching also helps after the workout by
stretching out the muscles that you just pumped up.

Good Nutrition

Make sure that you get all the essential nutrients for good
health. Eating a wide variety of foods from all the food groups will
help you get the vitamins and minerals you need. If you eat less
than 1,200 calories per day, you may benefit from taking a daily
vitamin and mineral supplement. Adequate protein is important
because it prevents muscle tissue from breaking down and repairs
all body tissues such as skin and teeth. To get adequate protein in
your diet, make sure you eat Meat, Poultry, Fish, Dry Beans, Eggs,
and Nuts every day. These foods are all good sources of protein.

A daily fiber intake of 20 to 30 grams. Adequate fiber helps with
proper bowel function. If you were to eat 1 cup of bran cereal, 1/2
cup of carrots, 1/2 cup of kidney beans, a medium-sized pear, and
a medium-sized apple together in 1 day, you would get about 30
grams of fiber.

No more than 30 percent of calories, on average, from fat per day,
with less than 10 percent of calories from saturated fat (such as
fat from meat, butter, and eggs). Limiting fat to these levels
reduces your risk for heart disease and may help you lose
weight. In addition, you should limit the amount of cholesterol
in your diet. Cholesterol is a fat-like substance found in animal
products such as meat and eggs. Your diet should include no
more than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day (one egg
contains about 215 milligrams of cholesterol, and 3.5 ounces of
cooked hamburger contain 100 milligrams of cholesterol).

At least 8 to 10 glasses, 8 ounces each, of water or water-based
beverages, per day. You need more water if you exercise a lot.

These nutrients should come from a variety of low-calorie,
nutrient-rich foods. One way to get variety -- and with it, an
enjoyable and nutritious diet -- is to choose foods each day
from the food groups.
