It’s your choice! The ball is in your court!

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.

Day 25 – The Round 28-Day Diet

MONA_ON_A_ROLLToday is all about Roundercising.

By now you should be exercising regularly. If you not, you are only getting half the job done.

Many people  tell me that they run out of energy or time and therefore cannot workout.

So let’s get energized and figure out a way to motivate you so you can not just shrink your body, but reshape it.

Energize Yourself

Shoot for 30 minutes of  walking, five days a week.

Snack on nuts
Nuts are full of protein and sugar-free , and the protein in nuts digests slowly for lasting energy.

Eat a banana
Bananas are full of potassium, a mineral that is key to converting blood sugar into energy.01_banana_whole_sliced

Drink Green tea
Green tea contains caffeine (an energizer) and theanine (makes you feel calmer) — all while keeping your mind clear.

Go for a hike
Appreciate Mother Nature’s beauty, and while you do you will also be relieving stress that can be an energy zapper. Even studies suggest that people in offices who have views of nature have fewer stress-related symptoms.

MONA_WHINERS_NOT_ALLOWEDStay away from whiners
Avoid people, even friends, who call, text, email or whatnot — on a daily basis — just to whine and complain. They will ear you down and wear you out and you will have nothing left for yourself. You can give these whiners 5 minutes, and let them know ahead of time — and then keep to your 5-minute word and go about your own day.

Take a nap
According to a Harvard study,  a 30-minute midday nap prevents energy from getting further depleted, while an hour-long nap actually boosts energy and performance.

Roundercising Gym Alternatives that will make you feel like a child again


MONA_SKATINGRoller-skating is on par with jogging when it comes to calorie burning and leg strengthening, but has much less impact on your knees and ankles.

This is also a great exercise for the entire family. And I don’t need to tell you how important it is to get your kids moving so they do not become one of the many kids today that are fatter than they need to be. So take the kids to a nearby rink and enjoy yourselves!

Hula-hooping is a superb way to slim down your mid-section while improving your posture and balance. Good posture helps you stand up straighter so that you look and feel proud of yourself.

Bouncing on a mini-trampoline like a playful child. It’s great for your back, your lymphatic system,  and you can watch television while you jump and bounce.

Bouldering is a great cardio and strength builder, gets your blood pumping, and engages just about every muscle in your body! It will do wonders for your arms and legs , and the challenge of this sport is great for you self-esteem.REBOUNDER

Pole Dancing
Pole dancing or striptease pole dancing is a big hit with celebrities like Kate Hudson and Teri Hatcher.This sexy Roundercise (twirling in a circular spiral around a pole) are low-intensity cardio workouts that can help you let go of inhibitions while toning your upper body and stomach.

Working out at home

So dig deep and fit Roundercising into your day — and your life.


One day a week

For one meal, you can eat out, or eat something not on the diet, but keep portions in control. This will allow you to feel less deprived, along with letting you see just how unRound some of the foods you crave might be. This is of course an optional part of the diet and you don’t have to veer off by eating less Round food. Your own personal choice as is everything in life!

If you want to just eat healthy rather than lose pounds, you can eat the same foods as on the Round Holiday Diet, but increase your portions. If you choose this route, keep in mind that most of time you will be eating foods that either naturally grow  in a Round shape on a tree, a vine or in the ground or can be sliced into circles from their natural Round shape, like a banana or cucumber. This is also key to keeping your new body so that you can always wear your smaller jeans.

Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a tongue-twisting phenolic chemical compound commonly added to foods high in fat and oils and cereal to stabilize flavor, odor and/or color. These toxic preservatives can cause cancer and migraines by simply allowing their names to roll off your tongue: Imidazolidinyl urea, Diazolidinyl urea, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, bronopol (2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol), methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone.

“It would be nice if the Food and Drug Administration stopped issuing warnings about toxic substances and just gave me the names of one or two things still safe to eat.”
Robert Fuoss
