In Excess of PortionWritten by Sherri L Dodd
Continued from page 1
veggies ranging from ½ cup to 1 cup per serving or cheese usually measuring 1 to 1½ ounces. For those who have difficulty remembering these technical measurements, McKinley Health Center has a website that features a clever rendition of accurately sizing up nourishment set before you at any dinner table. Portions are described in manner of “size of 9-volt battery” or “size of a checkbook” instead of textbook lingo you may have learned in cooking class. You can enjoy more of these silly comparisons at http://www.mckinley.uiuc.edu, click on Health Information, Nutrition and then Making Sense of Serving Sizes.
Even armed with knowledge of accurate portions, it will always come down to your own degree of self-discipline. I am definitely not a believer in suing successful corporations simply because someone ate themselves into a miserably obese physical condition or even an untimely heart attack. While it would be nice if we were less enticed into over-eating, just like a lot of other areas in life, we each have power to choose, especially when it comes down to just how much chow-mien to woof down during a road trip’s meal-time interruption.

You Have To Try This WorkoutWritten by Ryan Cote

My training partner and I use following Everlast punching mitts: http://store.everlastboxing.com/everlast-high-performance-mantis-punch-mitts.html. Only $45 dollars and they work great.
If you'd rather not workout with someone, you can get following punching bag from Everlast for only $160 dollars: http://store.everlastboxing.com/everlast-freestanding-heavy-bag.html. It'll last you a long time. If you think you're in tip top shape, try developing a workout that focuses around boxing. Like me, you may soon find yourself thinking "whoa!"
