Food For Weight Loss – 8 Surprisingly Good Options


Just one or two bites of rich, satisfying chocolate can not only reduce stress levels, but help curb cravings for other sugar-loaded treats, too. High stress levels can lead to cortisol hormone spikes, which increase the appetite and emotional eating behaviors.

The benefits of chocolate are specific to the concentration of cocoa flavonoids, which have been shown in studies to have multiple health benefits, such as improving blood flow to the brain and reducing the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels, blood sugar and blood pressure. The higher the percentage of cacao, the greater the benefits.

Buying tip: Skip the convenience store and check-out lane chocolate bars, which contain a lot of added fats and sugars — which can counteract some of cocoa’s health benefits. Look for bars with at least 70% cacao or higher, with a short, simple ingredient list … and indulge in just an ounce or two. Eating too much will work against you.

Best Breakfast Food For Weight Loss – 7 Great Choices

Ready to see the best breakfast food for weight loss?  Try these seven nutritious foods.



Eating greens is an important part of any healthy diet, although they might not be your first choice for breakfast. Spinach contains not only plenty of iron, it also provides phytonutrients called thylakoids, which can help ward off hunger. Thylakoids help increase the production of satiety hormones. One three-month study showed that having a green drink containing thylakoids, from 5 grams of spinach before breakfast reduced cravings. What’s more, the control group lost an average of 3.5 kilograms while the group that was given thylakoids lost 5 kilograms, while also experiencing decreases in cravings. Start your morning with greens— blend spinach with your favorite berries for a hunger-reducing green smoothie, and get one of the best breakfast food for weight loss!

4 Health & Fitness Tips For Success

4Cheating Is OK

If you are working hard to eat healthy and exercise consistently, then you don’t need to feel guilty about straying.  Setting aside one day a week as your “cheat” day can allow you to indulge without guilt.  Don’t worry…if you are like most people, they you will rarely go overboard on your cheat day as you won’t want to offset all the gains you made that week.



Simple Diet And Fitness Tips

5Buy For Comfort

There is no reason to buy shoes that hurt your feet; especially for exercising.  Shop for athletic shoes in the evening (your feet swell during the day so shop when they are their largest).  The shoes should feel comfortable from the start; you should not have to “break in” any pair of shoes.


4 Mistakes With Life Insurance

4Mistake #4 – Guessing How Much You Need

Many people have no idea how much life insurance is appropriate.  There are many variables that factor into the appropriate amount (i.e. outstanding debt, lifestyle costs, inflation, other income, etc.).   A common “rule of thumb” is to have 10 times your annual gross income (i.e. if your annual gross income is $50,000 then a life insurance policy for $500,000 would be a reasonable goal).  However, it is prudent to speak with a professioinal retirement financial adviser to assess your specific situation, and then to adjust as you age and as your financial situation changes.
