Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2014 by JJgroove01

 You Don’t Have to Compromise Your Good Figure, or Your Good Health?

  Can you believe the holidays are here again already? It seems like we just had them, don’t you think? Well, maybe that’s a good thing. Why? Because if you are like so many million of people who have good intentions each year not to overeat, or to be more physically active during the holiday, but some how each year you seem to blow it, keep reading.

There’s good news for you. What is it? This year can be different. How can it be? It’s because this time you’re not just wishing, or hoping those things will happen. “You Are Making Them Happen.” The reason is now you have a plan. What kind of a plan? It’s a plan of execution to follow my Great 8 Healthy Holiday Helpings.

These tips will help you to Eat, Drink, and be Very Aware of how to do it without compromising your good figure or your good health. Now, are ready for your helpings?

Helping #1. Don’t starve yourself. Don’t go without food all day before eating your big Holiday meal. Eat something continually every three or four hours like (a small piece of fruit, or a few things from the veggie tray, a hand full of nuts, small cup of yogurt, a few whole grain crackers, or a slice of whole grain bread.

Helping #2. Eat Breakfast. It’s simple; it will fuel your body and make you less hungry later.

Helping #3. Put everything on one plate. It will make you more aware of what, and how much you’re eating. The goal is to try not to go back for seconds.

Remember: Portion side is the key; it’ll help you prevent over doing it. *Here’s another important point. Sure, it’s okay to have some turkey and dressing but also make sure you load up on fruits and veggies. Why? They will make you feel full, as well as provide your body with the desired nutrients it needs.

Helping #4. Eat slowly. It’s a great way to help you savor all the good food combinations, and it too will help you eat less.

Helping #5. Stay active. Can I say, it’s the perfect way to keep your body in motion. So why not indulge in a good old fashion snow ball fight, or be daring and head on out to practice your skate boarding/roller blading skills.

Helping #6. Dance UP A Storm, the holiday’s are the perfect time to get together with your family, or friends, and put on your favorites tunes. Then show off your hot new dance moves, or perhaps have a dance contest! Know that it’s a great way to exercise, a cool way to work up a sweat, and to work off a few calories.

Helping # 7. Get Some REST. It’s no secret, we all know what getting enough (6, 7 hrs) of some good old happy shut eye will do. Doing so will make you feel more refreshed, and energized for all the festivities you’ll be encountering.

Helping # 8. Group Up. Why not go the extra mile? Group up and give each other a nice back message. It’s a fun way to start, or to end, a day full of continuous mayhem.

Enjoy your Happy Holiday Helpings!

Joey L. Dowdy’s “KNOW YOUR OPTIONS!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2013 by JJgroove01

MAKE IT A FEAT.

Here’s how you can keep the burgers and fries off your thighs. You can do this by turning a potentially unhealthy feat into a pleasant and healthy treat. Here’s how! What you need to know, and do, when you’re eating out is how to act on your options.

You can still enjoy a good meal minus all the extra calories, sodium, sugar and fat. Especially if you’re trying to lose weight, or just maintain your great shape.

So listed below are your options for a large burger, large fries and large soda.

*Down Size Your Portions.

But first, before I share them with you, I think the first thing you should do is down size all three items. Go for smaller versions. Why? It’s all about portion control. You really don’t need to have the large version of these items in order to fill up your tank. Plus, you can make better and more valuable choices using healthier options. Remember: when you eat out don’t be afraid to resort to doing this.

*Execute the Golden Rule.

When eating out don’t be afraid to ask for healthier options, or for your food to be prepared differently. Don’t forget you’re paying for it anyway, plus, you might encourage the restaurant to start a new thing.

Be A Trend Setter!”

Now here are my BFS options.

Burger (Try It Protein Style)

Here’s what so many people are unaware of and most places don’t advertise but there is a lower calorie, fat, sodium burger option. It’s called a protein burger. What is it? It is grilled burger meat (ask for it with no or slightly salted) without the bun wrapped in lettuce, tomato, onions, or whatever other veggies (spinach, sprouts, avocado etc) you’d like. Please feel free to pile them on. Note: Including more veggies will give you the fiber you need, and it’ll make you feel fuller.

Next, try adding mustard and possibly a dash of ketchup for favor instead mayo or the restaurants high fat sauce version. Doing all these things will help you to save big on Calories, Sodium, and Fat.

*Fries (Go Baked or Grilled)

Go for the baked version if possible, or a baked potato (don’t forget most places grill, or cook their burgers so why not ask them to do the same with your fries. Don’t forget they usually have microwaves too, and a baked potato only takes about five to eight minutes.

*Soda (Make a Different Choice)

Sorry, I hate to bring you the bad news, but soda simply isn’t good for you at all. Yes, that means diet soda too. Why is it? For one, it has no nutritional value, and two, I’m sure you’ve heard; it turns into fat. So if you’re trying to trim down your waistline, and who isn’t, you should by pass it.

*Get Your Fizz On!

A better option is water. No, it doesn’t have to be boring. What you should do is try it different ways like flavored, sparkling, or mineral. Just make sure neither contains any form of sugar. Sure, they won’t taste as sweet as soda. But they’ll still provide (especially sparkling or mineral water) that fizzy and or refreshing taste just the same. The difference is minus all the calories and the sugar. If by chance the restaurant doesn’t have either then just drink plain water, and garnish it with strips of lemon, lime, or orange slices.

Now, That You Know Your Options.

You Can “Turn a Potentially Unhealthy Feat Into A Pleasant and Healthy Treat.”

Joey L. Dowdy’s “BURGERS, FRIES & THIGHS,

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2013 by JJgroove01

OH MY!”

Can’t lose those extra pounds? Well, this could be one reason why.

Did you know that research studies show that fifty percent of the American population consumes a meal that consists of a large burger, large fries and a large soda at least once a week?  So, what about you? Are you doing it too and probably thinking, okay, what’s wrong with once a week? Well, let’s do the math.

Check This Out!

  Here are the stats on how many calories, sodium, fat and sugar content you consume eating just one large burger, fries & soda.

 1,360 calories (Two thirds of a standard day’s allotment of 2,000 calories)

Sodium 1,380 milligrams (almost an entire day’s allotment which is, 2000 milligram)

Fat content 38 percent of calories (60-65 grams day’s allotment)

<Sugar content for all three>
 95 grams, or 19 teaspoons, or 390 calories which is more than double what the American heart association recommends for one day. WOW! These figures are just for once a week, double them for twice a week; triple them for three times a week.  

SO, I ask again, could this be one reason why you can’t lose those extra pounds?  It could be very likely.

What can you do about? How can you keep the burgers, soda, and fries, off your thighs?

WANNA KNOW?

More Soon.
