Health Tip of the Day

The Outwit-Your-Brain Diet

  • Avoid starvation diets. They simply don't work. Instead, eat balanced meals, avoid binges and limit snacks.

  • Eat slowly. It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it's full.

  • Skip the bread served at restaurants before a meal. The bread will leave you hungrier. Eat a salad instead.

  • Drink water. Water can fill you up and leave you with less of an appetite.

  • Swap fiber for fat. Fiber can make you feel bloated so you'll eat less at dinner. Choose celery or carrot sticks for snacks.

Healthy Living

Cholesterol
There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
