Food Thoughts Help You Eat Less

Think FOOD, Eat less

Some of our smartest scientists at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that continuous thinking about eating a particular food, such as candy or cheese, resulted in the study dieters to eat less of those foods they craved when it was offered to them.

This goes along with the already well-known idea that thinking about a food can make your mouth water. These savvy researchers extended this idea to find that you can also think your way into being satisfied without actually eating the food.

The study used M&Ms and cheese cubes and learned that imagining eating a lot of a food caused the mind to subconsciously restrict how much of that food the dieters actually later ate.

In a nutshell, the study conclusion found that people who imagined eating more food ate less of that same food when it was set before them later on.

Eat Healthy By Cooking at Home

Prepare food ahead of timeWhy Cook at Home?

To make sure you know what you are eating, it’s best to be your own cook in your own kitchen. To do this, you’ll need to go food shopping.

before Shopping

Before shopping, it’s smart to create a menu for your week. Look through cookbooks, search for online menus such as ones at the Food Network or any other favorites you come across. Then make a shopping list so you buy what you need, instead of what tempts you as you innocently cruise the shelves.

Choose recipes that include some of the same ingredients. That way you can use all the ingredient you buy and won’t waste any food.

Shop Ahead of Time

Get your groceries in advance so you have a stocked fridge and pantry before the week begins. If you know it’s going to be a hectic week, buy some partially prepared food that requires only a little bit of work to make. Just read the ingredients to make sure they’re healthy.

Prepare Your food Ahead of Time

A great idea is to prepare as much food over the weekend for the week. You can chop vegetables, cook chicken for salads, hard boil eggs, chop vegetables , marinate meat for the next day, and make a batch of brown or wild rice. This will make is easy to  put together a meal during any day of the week.

Cook more than one meal at a time. If you’re already grilling or baking chicken, make  extra and freeze half or place meal-sized portions in air-tight containers for another day.

Freeze Food For Later

Freezing food is a one more way to have prepared food on hand. But be sure to label your containers and bags of food so you know what they contain. If you are one of those neat and tidy organized people, you can even keep a list so you can see exactly what is in your freezer. And remember to wrap food tightly and also leave some space between frozen items so cold air can circulate around them.

How I tried to Meet John Lennon

BeatlesPeace & Love For John

Back when the Beatles first came to the Bay Area in the early-mid 1960’s, I tried to meet them. Early on, I had a crush on Paul for his cuteness and an even bigger one on John for his lyrics.

I was 9-years old when a family friend, Kathy, and I devised a plan to meet the Fab Four inside the hotel we discovered they were staying.

We decided that we could pass ourselves off as an adult reporter if we dressed as a man in one of my dad’s suites. Kathy was a year older than me, so she wore the pants, while I put on the suit jacket and hat. I then sat on her shoulders, and when we looked in the mirror, we thought we looked like a full-grown man.

I was  tiny for my age, but that did not stop me. We practiced being an adult man for hours. We stood and spoke in front of a mirror, pretending we were a reporter. Being the top portion of the disguise, I got the speaking part and did my best to say, “I’m a reporter from the Palo Alto Recorder.” But no matter how hard I tried, I kept saying, “I’m a recorder from the Palo Alto Reporter.” I thought that was our biggest hurdle.

So the day came. Kathy and I packed our suit halves and set out to walk the 5-mile stretch to the hotel. Along the way we saw the helicopter flying above transporting the boys, urging us to walk faster.

A 5-mile walk carrying a suite and lunches turned into a long trek. About a mile or so before we neared the hotel, we realized it was going to get dark, we were tired, and hungry. I’m not sure who made the decision, but we ended up turning around and aborting out meet and greet. But, that sparked a life-long love of all things Beatles.

Now it’s 30 years since John’s death, a day I will always remember as one of those moments I could not perceive as true. His writing and voice and independent way of living was, and still is, embedded in my psyche. He taught me to be who I am, to write my way, to love myself, and make the most out of this short life.

In the words of John…

“I’m not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I’ve always been a freak. So I’ve been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I’m one of those people.”

I miss you John, and so does the 9-year old me standing tall as the Recorder from the Palo Alto Reporter.

Farmer Creates Hottest Chili Pepper Ever, The Naga Viper

Naga Viper Hottest Chili PepperHottest Round Food

This new breed of pepper, the Naga Viper, is not a snake, but is shares a snake-like name for a reason – a bite of this viper can make you want to die.

This blazing hot pepper ironically grows in a freezing climate, and is fierier than the hottest peppers grown in India and Mexico.

NoteThe Naga Viper now tops the hottest Round food list. It naturally grows in a Round shape, can be sliced into circles, making it a Super and Sliced Round scorching hot food, according to the Science of Roundology.

This new pepper is the creation of a chili farmer living in northwest England who crossed three of the hottest peppers in a greenhouse surrounded by snow to spawn the Naga Viper.

Pepper experts spout that this Naga Viper pepper is thousands of times hotter than chili peppers, claiming it to be the hottest pepper on our Round Earth. Okay, I added the Round part, but this is Roundorama and it is true — our Earth is Super Round, as is the moon, the sun and universe of planets.

Those who dared to taste the Viper say it is painful to eat. After it numbs your tongue, it continues by burning all the way down. How far down I do not know, but that burning sensation can last an hour. The funny thing is that although for that hour you are practically immobilized, you also supposedly feel great.

Warm Winter Workout

Warm Winter WorkoutsLayer up

When the weather is icy, frigid, cold, brisk or otherwise not warm, wear multiple layers of comfortable, breathable clothing. This will allow you to peel off layers as you get going and warm up, and layer them back on when you cool down. Wear warm hats, scarves, and gloves  to protect your skin. And don’t forget lip balm and SPF protection for your face–even if the sun is not shining.

Energy Up

Hot or cold, your body needs fuel for energy when you workout. Have a bowl of hot oatmeal an hour or two before setting out for a workout so you don’t run out of energy in the middle of whatever exercise you set out to do. The same goes for water–your body does not need to be in a sunny, sweltering climate to need hydration. Being  out in the shivering, dry air can suck the water right out of you. So drink water before, during, and after a workout, or at least before and after.

Start up

Before doing any exercise in the cold, find a warm spot to slowly stretch and get your circulation moving. Do the same when you cool down. This is especially a must in the chilly air, since cold muscles tend to become stiff muscles. The last thing you want is to pull a frozen muscle.

warm up

If you live in the Arctic or some other face-freezing, glacial climate, or you know a blizzard is heading your way, be prepared to switch it up and workout indoors. It won’t do you any good if you become a sickly ice-cube when your actual endeavor is to be a healthy and fit human being. Nobody will think you are a stud if you freeze body parts off, so grab a DVD, run up and down your stairs, or bounce on a rebounder or mini-trampoline and your get your sweat on the cozy warmth of the indoors!
