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.

What’s Their Secret?

What’s The Best Way to Lose Weight and Build Confidence!

Do You Really Want to Know?

Well, Read On!

Take a look at Madonna, Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Tina Turner, Chris Brown, Ciara, and even the late Michael Jackson, “They All Know the Real Secret.” You must have wondered how these performers get their Charisma, Stamina, Confidence, Strut, Style, Grace, and above all those Toned Sculpted Bodies.

Have You Ever Said to Yourself, “What do they know that I don’t?

Well, Now You Can!

What Is It?

They Dance!

In fact, they not only dance, it’s their main physical fitness inspirational source for getting into tip-top shape. Some may even refer to as “Dance Fitness”. Dance Fitness is the new craze that’s rocking the nation; it’s deemed as a fun sexy way to get down those unwanted pounds. Not only is it beneficial for your heart, but it lowers your cholesterol, reduces your blood pressure and builds stronger bones while improving flexibility.

These Stars know that consistency yields results and dancing’s physical fitness benefits help them reach their “Peak Performance.” Yet we all know that people will only exercise regularly if they are having fun. Maybe your dream isn’t to be a star, or even to be in the music/entertainment business but you can still learn from their successes.

No matter what your age, dancing or exercise ability, “Dance Fitness is for all.”

You can “Dance Like A Star”, or just simply have a blast trying as you get whipped into shape.

Have Fun!
