I should point this out to my dad who is paranoid about developing alzheimers -- he's in his 70s and doesn't exercise at all and nor has he for about 20 years!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

TIP #46 RANDOM TIPS


Be concerned with the fat levels and sugar levels of foods. Some foods that display 'low fat' on their packaging tend to be high in sugar, which can be just as bad for someone trying to lose weight.
Consider portion size. Many people are now eating low fat diets but they are eating larger portions. You need to get the balance right between calories consumed and calories burnt.
Don't do the shopping when you are hungry. You will be more inclined to by the high sugar and high fat snacks.
Write down your shopping list before you get to the shops and don't buy anything that is not on that list.
Keep an accurate diary of food and exercise. This will help to expose weaknesses. You can then design strategies to overcome them.
Only eat at the dinner table. Never whilst watching TV or reading.

Arrgh I always eat while watching TV! I always have it on for company as I live alone. I should turn it off or at least turn the volume down and concentrate on what I am eating :oops:

Thanks again Kate, I know this to be my problem and I am trying to change it.

Yeah Kate it is a real problem with the "low fat" stuff, we were told that they have to make up the content with something, so it is generally sugar!! How wrong is that! According to the calorie counter book, you should also go very careful with the nutritional panel as sometimes the grams might say 100g net weight on the packet , but there is actually 130g net weight.....which means if you eat whatever the serving size is meant to be in the packet.. you are eating more!!!

I do that Kim, when I'm at work I have my morning snack at 10:30 and my afternoon snack at 3pm while I'm working away on the computer. I have to say that it is very distracting.

TIP # 47 BOOST YOUR METABOLISM

1.lift weights: by toning and firming up you'll boost your metabolism. you'll then burn kilojoules even when resting because the body is constantly working to maintain the muscles.

2. eat more protein: foods high in protein require more energy to burn helping you to boody your metabolism and lose weight.

3. exercise when its cool: the body burns kilojoules which stimulates the metabolism as the body's working hard to keep warm.

Only snack on low fat, high fibre foods such as fruit and vegetables.

Hmm I think mayo was a bad one for me, I'd have it with just about everything I love the flavour... Haven't had it for ages, but when I did move to a 'light' mayonnaise the normal one tasted so oily I couldn't even have it.

TIP # 50 BEST FUEL FOR BUSY BODIES

Q: What's the best fuel (ie. food) for our busy bodies? A: Busy people who do not have much time to be physically active need to be careful that kilojoule-dense foods such as chips, rice crackers, lollies, biscuits and chocolates do not creep into the day too often or weight will creep on. Ideally, small regular meals with a good balance of carbohydrates and protein help to increase metabolism and also help to keep you full for a good couple of hours after eating them. Great options include wholegrain crackers with cheese or tuna, low-fat dairy in skim coffees, low-fat yoghurt, flavoured milks, nut-based snack packs, corn crackers with spread and low-fat wholegrain cookies.
