WEEK OF AUGUST 29 â€“ SEPTEMBER 4, 2010
Tip Of The Week
Did you know...Eating frequently can help you lose weight? Restrictive diets can result in hunger pains and binge eating. Eating small meals throughout the day helps boost your metabolism and keeps you from feeling hungry. Eating every 2-3 hours tells your body that you are giving it energy and it does not need to store calories as fat. Skipping meals, however, will hinder weight loss because your body will store the fat. Eating frequently will make you feel full and keep hunger at bay.

Myth of the Week(Is it True or False?)
â€œLow-fat or fat-free means no calories."
Fact: A low-fat or fat-free food isoften lower in calories than the same size portion of the full-fat product. But many processed low-fat or fat-free foods have just as many calories as the full-fat version of the same foodâ€”or even morecalories. They may contain added sugar, flour, or starch thickeners to improve flavor and texture after fat is removed. These ingredients add calories.
