An hour of tough workout and a carefully planned nutritional diet goes a long way in assuring a good physique.Instead of frying food items, begin roasting and steaming. Go for skinless chicken or turkey, instead of high fat meats. Processed foods and junk foods are strict no-no for bodybuilders.

Food for a Healthy Heart - Choosing foods that look after your heart can be easier than you might think, and taste good too. Here are five simple steps to get you started.

Step 1. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables
It’s always nice to be able to recommend people eat more of something, so here goes: eat more fruit and veg, in fact, eat lots. They’re full of good stuff.

Step 2. If choosing meat, make it lean; include fish as an alternative
Choosing lean meats and poultry lets you enjoy your meat but keep your heart happy too.

Step 3. Choose low-fat milk
Milk is one of our staple foods, and it can be found in most fridges around the country. Choosing lower fat milk is a great choice for your heart.

Step 4. Replace butter with margarines and healthy oils
Butter or margarine? We get asked this question all the time, and the answer is simple – margarine.

Step 5. Reduce salt; check sodium on food labels
There are so many wonderful flavours in food to be enjoyed - do we really need to use so much salt?

I THINK YOU NEED TO START YOUR HEALTH PROGRAM WITH A HEALTHY HEART, BECAUSE YOU WON'T GET VERY FAR IN LIFE WITHOUT IT.

Dark chocolate .. Reservatrol and cocoa phenols (flavonoids). A truffle a day lowers blood pressure, but choose 70% or higher cocoa content. Marry XMAS


...I love chocolate but have cut down on it dramatically and have started to nibble and I emphasize nibble because I have been finding it hard to eat dark chocolate with the 70% or higher value because the taste isn't the same.......so I substituted it for a small tub of chocolate yoghurt which is pretty good per serving and it fixes that chocolate craving.....so I have less of dark chocolate and more of yoghurt.....


Energy Chocolate is my favourite, just as a treat mind you.


...darker chocolate with higher grades are suppose to be really beneficial to ones health but of cause portion control is a must....

You know what all you/we need is a real meal plans, self discipline, take risks & find reasons to love our life.

"Energy" chocolate implies some sort of beneficial attribute whereas chocolate is chocolate and we should never eat as much as BJ.


I'm talking about real ENERGY chocolate here the stuff you buy from supermarkets, not those chocolate flavoured Viagra pills, lol

#17

yap here comes XMAS, most easy thing to gift to anyone is chocolate.

#18

plenty of water...to wash out all the toxins!

#19

I've always thought "everything in moderation" was a good common sense approach. It's too easy to get caught up in the should and should nots. Every culture has their own lifestyle and diet pros and cons. We have the best lamb, lots of almost the best beef, fantastic dairy if you shop around, fresh seafood 50 k's from everywhere, fruit and veges available to everyone (food in schools programmes included), plus loads of fresh air and outdoor living.

To lose weight we should avoid the following:
Fried foods, Hamburgers & French fries, Table sugar, Plain Jam, Salted nuts, Smoked nuts, Refried beans, Baked Beans, Chocolate Fudge, Candy, Toffee, Gums, Boiled sweets, Mint Sweets, Liquorice, Soft drinks, Tinned fruits, Chutney, Pickle, Bacon, Sausage, Cured meats, Ham, Fatty cuts of steak like T-bone & rib-eye, Puddings, Corn syrup, Cake, Bread made with white flour, Soda pop (such as Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, etc.), All baked goods made with white flour, Coffee, Biscuits, Fast foods, Pasta made with white flour, Canned fruits w/added sugar, Most packaged cereals, Alcohol can slow your metabolism down by 73%, Potato chips, Popcorn, Cookies, Ice cream, Cakes, Pies, All deserts, Artificial sweeteners, Honey which has minimal nutritional value & has the same calorie content as sugar, Fruit juice - It's better to eat raw fruit instead of fruit juice because fruits contain more fibre and the juice will always contain more sugar than the actual fruit, Most bottled green teas have more ingredients in it to help you gain weight than the actual green tea itself to help you lose weight.

Anything that’s not on the list either sneaked past or is safe to eat. Never saw cat or dog biscuits so l suppose you are safe with those. Hell what are we allowed to eat, each other? This list l found is not going to give me a better or happy life.
