Can I substitute fruits & vegetables with juices?

Six oz of fruit or vegetable juice is considered one serving - but only if it is 100% juice. While juice can supply many of the vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals found in whole fruits and vegetables, it:

  • Does not supply the fiber or complete nutrient load found in solid fruit.
  • Has the calories that can add up quickly and won't pacify hunger.
  • Needs to be limited to 1 servings a day.

Its important to be sure to choose carefully: a "juice cocktail" or "juice beverage" label means it is not 100% juice.

June - Survivor Month!

The pretty Syura tagged me in tulipspeaks to post about this Breast Cancer Site. I thought it is more appropriate to be featured here instead.

When you click this button below, you will be directly to site which has the button "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" you are helping to fund free mammograms for women in need — low-income, inner-city and minority women whose awareness of breast cancer and opportunity for help is often limited. Yea, seriously. if they receive 8000 clicks this month, their premier sponsor will donate 10K for the free mammograms.

Very high calorie Malaysian foods

Wonder why you are still not losing that weight (or even worse, putting more weight) lately? Consumption of very high calorie food maybe the reason and these are some of the culprit:

1. Fried rice (>600kcal)

2. Fried chicken 'dinner plate' (>600kcal)

3. Fried chicken 'snack plate' (>600kcal)

4. Mysore Pak (Indian) (>300kcal)

5. Laddu (Indian) (>300kcal)

6. Papadam (>300kcal)

Slides: Cancer

Sharing with you all a slide presentation of mine. It was meant to be used in educational talks to those with high risk for cancer and/or colorectal cancer. This is just a part of a lecture series. You may be seeing the rest of the slides as time goes by.
