VERY CHEAP WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT: Anyone Can Easily Afford This

itgirlcode.com
Here's a super cheap way to lose weight which anyone can easily afford--avoid eating out as much as you can. The daily cheap lunch you eat at a popular fastfood store which your budget can easily shoulder keeps adding extra weight and fat to your body.

Even food you eat at your favorite cheap street-corner eatery or karinderia on a daily basis makes you gain weight as well without you noticing it. One day you just see yourself in the mirror or in a picture posted on FB looking fatter, and you wonder what happened. Well, it's the meals you eat at the fastfood store or karinderia.

What's wrong wrong with these foods?

They contain more preservatives, artificial flavors, salts and probably cooked in recycled cooking oil. To make food tasty, most of their recipes contain a lot of pork and fattening mixtures, like flour for thickening sauces. You never know how they cook food inside their kitchens. And we often think that popular fastfoods are good foods cooked properly--that's one of the pitfalls to being overweight.

We assume fastfood companies are concerned about our health.

Moreover, fastfoods and restaurants offer fattening beverages, pastries and sundaes that are hard to ignore. Even if you try them just 3 times a week, they do damage to your weight. A lot of people fail in their weight loss efforts not realizing it's due to their eat-outs.

So, what can you do about this?

Avoid eating out.

Eat home-cooked food most of the time to get health and fitness with middle income budget. Home-cooking is when you can control what goes into your food--and control the cost, too. You can have everything fresh without any preservatives or artificial this and that. You can opt to always use oil in minimal amount and always use fresh cooking oil.

You can also opt to bring packed lunch to school or work to make sure you eat good food daily. But if you really can't avoid eating out in cheap eateries--as majority of us middle income folks do--then at least prefer cheap karinderias to fastfoods. There are karinderias that do home-cooked meals. All you have to do is take note of what they serve. If they look and taste like your good food at home, then go for them.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

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…
