ACCELERATE YOUR SIXTH SENSE

HERE ARE A COUPLE TIPS TO ACCELERATE YOUR CHOICE AWARENESS:

1) Watch out for hidden calories. While most of us would know that a brownie packs a lot of calories, you may not realize the hidden calories in many popular selections. Take a look at a few examples below and start to use food labels to find out where your hidden calories may be.

DID YOU KNOW…?

Blended coffee drinks and ice blended drinks can have more than 1200 calories!

Low-fat muffins can have more than 500 calories

A six-inch bagel can have more than 400 calories

A 24oz soda has 350 calories!

An order of fries can have almost 700 calories

A chicken pot pie can have 1000 calories

And a five piece order of chicken strips from a fast food joint can have 630 calories (about the same as a burger)

2) Its easy to over look calories that we drink. For example, sodas, juices, alcoholic beverages and some popular coffee drinks contain a lot of calories. An alarming study reported two thirds of Americans drink enough soda and or sweet  drinks to provide them with a greater proportion of daily calories than any other food. And whats more alarming is that these sodas/sweet drinks were fatter than the non-soda/sweet drinkers. Were not saying you cant have soda,juice or coffee. Instead, “exercise” your choice awareness and recognize that what you drink contains calories too.

3) Exercise your awareness of foods that are delicious and that don’t pack a lot of calories. These are foods that are going to fill you up, without filling you out.
