Classic diner breakfast delivers dietary bomb

The peameal bacon and egg breakfast at Wimpy’s Diner, which they label a “Classic” with three exclamation points, doesn’t stray from the familiar look and taste.

The piled-high plate comes with three eggs, four pieces of peameal-style bacon, two slices of buttered toast and a mound of home fries. For our test, we chose the eggs over easy and toasted rye.

We know that nutrition numbers won’t steer people away from this favourite breakfast. But still, we thought it good to know what we’re digging into so early in the day.

It’s not pretty.

The Classic clocks in with 969 calories, 50 grams of fat and 2,223 mg of sodium. A lot to ingest before lunch.

Kindergarten Lunches Get Failing Grade

“When dietitian Shannon Crocker went into four kindergarten classrooms in two Ontario elementary schools to check the contents of the children’s lunch boxes, she was dismayed by what she found.

“Many were packed with poor food and drink choices such as cold hot dogs, gummy treats, sugary fruit beverages and packaged cookies,” says the Ancaster, Ont., mother of two.

Kindergarten classes were chosen because Ontario began introducing its new Early Learning Program in September, which means thousands of four- and five-year-olds now attend school for a full day.

Crocker adds that many lunches did not provide enough food for the long day the children were at school…..” Click here to read the rest!

Bottled Teas Low On Antioxidants

“Bottled teas may be refreshing on a hot summer day, but most do not provide the health benefits of a single cup of steeped tea, according to a new study.

More than half of 49 bottled teas tested by researchers at a U.S. dietary supplement company contained less than 10 milligrams (mg) of antioxidant polyphenols. A typical cup of steeped tea has 50 to 100 mg. Research has shown a minimum of 125 mg daily is needed to provide health benefits.”

Quit Yo-Yo Dieting

Yo-yo dieting is bad and habit-forming.  From EverydayHealth.com, here’s how to avoid it:

Skipping meals. “Are you eating small, frequent meals throughout the day, or are you skipping meals and having long gaps between meals?” Gans asks. “That only makes you hungrier, and you’ll tend to overeat at your next meal.”

Eating out without thought. “Do you dine out all the time and use that as an excuse not to make healthy choices at a restaurant?” Gans asks. “Even when you’re dining out, you can make healthier choices. Order broiled food, not fried. Say no to desserts. Have a bowl of berries instead of pie. Order sauces on the side.”

Keeping unhealthy foods in your house. As part of a smart weight-loss program, you should clear out all the junk food and make sure you have a wealth of healthy options available for snacking and dining. “You need to keep fruit, vegetables, low-fat dairy in the house so it’s there for you to make meals out of,” Gans says. Simply limiting some foods, such as soft drinks, that are high in sugars may help you significantly reduce calories.

Keep your portions small. One quick way to control weight is to cut back on the size of your portions. Many personal weight-loss programs fail because people ladle out way too much food for themselves and then feel compelled to clean their plates.
