Realistic Weight Loss Breakfast for the Lower Middle Income Group
They always say breakfast is the priority and crucial meal of all, so make sure never to miss it. And then they give us samples of a healthy, balanced, and slimming breakfast guaranteed to trim our waists and lower our weights down.

Question is, who can afford them? Only the rich. And you know who needs health and fitness more these days? Folks who belong to the middle income--particularly the lower middle income. Why? Because they make up most of the working class in this country--people who move the economy up. If they get sick, imagine what happens to the economy, even with billionaire capitalists around.

So one day, I thought of formulating a realistic weight loss breakfast for the lower middle income group--something very affordable, common, but healthy. Most folks on FB fall under this income category so spread the word around and tell them of this new health finding--a definite good news to all.

Here's what I gathered. I made a weekly breakfast schedule. After taking 3 glasses of water with one piece squeezed kalamansi (water therapy), eat:

Monday: Two boiled eggs, 3 bananas, a cup of milk, and 3 slices of wheat bread. That costs roughly P25 to P30 per person. You have protein, carbs, fibers, vitamins and minerals. That should keep you energetic and healthy.

Tuesday: Fried dilis and half cup fried rice (okay, one third cup fried rice), sliced half tomato, green tea, half boiled eggplant with crushed garlic. That costs roughly P25 per person. You get your calcium, carb, fibers, vitamins and minerals, and antioxidant,

Wednesday: A small bowl of oatmeal with some milk (no sugar), 3 slices of wheat bread, 3 bananas, and 2 small pieces dried fish. That costs about P25. You get your carbs, fibers, protein, vitamins and minerals, and calcium.

Thursday: 3 boiled sweet potatoes, 3 bananas, and a cup of Ovaltine or Milo. That's about P25. You get your protein, carbs, fibers, and vitamins and minerals.

Then repeat Monday breakfast for Friday, and so on.

What do you think? This is my personal breakfast sched.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.

Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
