Proud "parent moments!"

We loved seeing Evan Lysecek win gold medal in the Olympics last night! It was the first gold for the USA in men's figure skating since 1988! Favorite moment? Mama crying during the medal ceremony! What a proud moment for her! What is your favorite "proud parent" moment?

EATING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE

New findings from the Mayo study, which were published in the European Heart Journal, suggest that reducing heart risk requires increasing the percentage of lean muscle mass at the expense of body fat.

Eating a healthy diet is important in reducing body fat, too, but Mayo Clinic researchers observe that if you only restrict calories, you risk losing an equal amount of body fat and lean muscle tissue and thus you could end up weighing less without significantly reducing the percentage of body fat.

The best way to avoid this is by consuming a diet that is a healthful balance of proteins, carbs and fats.  Beware of extreme calorie restriction or low carb diets…they usually cause muscle breakdown.  As the above referenced study indicates….it’s dangerous to lose weight at the expense of losing lean muscle tissue.  

 

335 calories and 5 grams of fat!
