BMI chart 

 

Along the way we get out of shape. Often it creeps up on us unawares but we can manage our our situation to achieve Better Health and Wellness. We all know that the more weight we carry, the more we are at risk of diseases such as diabetes, cancer, stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease and joint deterioration, just to name a few. This alone should really motivate us to be with our loved ones as long as we can, placing minimal burdens on those we say we love.

 

To attain the best fitness and to control our weight is through following a good diet (good diet recipe books) and an exercise routine. Some of the best routines out there are aerobic exercises, done in the morning along with the help of a healthy diet of fruit, grains, nuts, vegetables and eggs with the options of non farmed scaled and finned fish, and free range white meats. Exercise routines should elevate your pulse rate to at least double and should be for at least 30 minutes. One of the pitfalls in our regular diet that contributes to weight gain is the over consumption of carbohydrates. Remember for sustained weight loss one needs to adopt a lifestyle change, not some fad diet. Also those who follow a vegan (vegetarian with no dairy or eggs) diet need to monitor their vitamin B12 levels so to maintain their health. Often those on vegan diets need to take vitamin B12 supplements to avoid health issues. 

 

Yes you also need to work on those areas of self control and discipline. For example some lifestyle strategies one can try in the quest for Weight Control are; reduce the plate size, do not eat between meals, minimise the use of energy dense foods such as those that contain refined sugar, be more active, substitute whole garden foods for processed foods and move away for high G.I. foods to low G.I. foods. We offer a range of fat burning supplements, electronics and books will also help you in your Weight Control goals. All our weight control items are chosen to help support you in your quest for a better looking and better feeling you.

The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook

 

Vegetables and grains play an important role in human nutrition. Eating a variety of plant foods such as these would highly contribute for human health benefits, and people know it well. People are drawn to vegetarianism by all sorts of motives. Some want to live longer, healthier lives or do their part to reduce pollution. A well-balanced vegetarian or vegan diet can provide many health benefits, such as a reduced risk of chronic diseases, including: obesity, coronary artery disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes and some types of cancer. Vegetarians and vegans also have lower rates of illness and death from a number of degenerative diseases. Their is now an abundance of scientific research that demonstrates that their are substantial health and environmental benefits in a plant-based diet. Importantly, we should consume most of our calories from grain products and vegetables.

 

Vegetarian diets are more healthful than the average diet, particularly in preventing, treating or reversing heart disease and reducing the risk of cancer. Keep in mind that the more restrictive your diet is, such as vegetarian or vegan, the more challenging it can be to get all the nutrients you need. Unfortunately, this belief can be intimidating with recipes that are often too complicated for everyday meals or lacking in fresh appeal or flavor. Now, the test kitchen has devoted its considerable resources to creating a vegetarian cookbook for the way we want to eat today. The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook is a wide-ranging collection of boldly flavorful vegetarian recipes covering hearty vegetable mains, rice and grains, beans and soy as well as soups, appetizers, snacks, and salads.

 

More than 300 recipes are fast (start to finish in 45 minutes or less), 500 are gluten-free, and 250 are vegan and are all highlighted with icons on the pages. The book contains stunning color photography throughout that shows the appeal of these veggie-packed dishes. In addition, almost 500 color photos illustrate vegetable preparation and tricky techniques as well as key steps within recipes.

 

This book has been tested, written, and edited by the test cooks, editors, food scientists, tasters, and cookware specialists at America’s Test Kitchen, a 2,500-square-foot kitchen located just outside Boston. It is the home of Cook’s Illustrated magazine and Cook’s Country magazine, the public television cooking shows America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country from America’s Test Kitchen, America’s Test Kitchen Radio, and the online America’s Test Kitchen Cooking School.

 

The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook paperback is the best-selling vegetarian cookbook destined to become a classic. Published March 1, 2015, 472p.
