Did you know?!

Most people THINK that they are making healthier choices in their diet…when actually…not always the case.  Check out these surprising facts….and see if YOU KNEW:

  1. A bagel is equal to how many slices of bread?
    a. 3     b.5    c. 6      d. 8

  2. How long would you have to walk to burn off one soda?
    a. 40 min      b. 50 min      c. 1 hr 15 min     d.  1 hr 30 min

  3. How big should your dinner plate be?
    a. 9 inches   b. 12 inches  c. any size  d. platter

 

1. Answer b…since most bagels are made from refined carbs — yep, usually even the wheat ones — you’ll be hungry again soon after eating one.  Spread a tablespoon of peanut butter (about the size of your thumb) on your bagel,. The protein will increase the time it takes for your body to process the bagel, so you’ll be energized and satisfied for longer.

2. Answer c….One 20-ounce cola has 250 calories. Soda is the biggest single source of calories in the U.S. diet. We drink more than 49 gallons of the stuff per person per year, research shows.

3. Answer a…Although some now measure 12 inches or more, a dinner plate should be the size of a salad plate. Seriously. A bigger plate means bigger portions, which make it easy to overeat without realizing it. At restaurants, a good guideline is to eat half of what you’re served, or to leave three generous bites of everything — except the veggies.
