Dangerous Bubbles?

Many people who are aware of the dangers of soda and other sugary drinks look to carbonated or “fizzy” water as a healthier alternative to stay hydrated. But is it truly healthier?

A recent study raised alarm bells in the media by suggesting that fizzy water, even the kinds without added sugar, may make us hungrier, leading to weight gain.

 

5 Tips for making healthier food choices

  • Don’t eat past 7 p.m.  It’s better for your digestion and metabolism. If you start feeling hungry later, have a healthy snack such as nuts or fruit.
  • Low-carb your burger. Get rid of the bottom bun and eat the burger open-faced. “That one little change slashes the amount of empty carbs.”
  • Keep nuts in your glove compartment. Stuck in traffic and feeling hungry? High-protein nuts will keep you from stopping for junk food.
  • Do the avocado mash. Spread it instead of mayo on whole wheat bread for healthy fat, fiber and vitamins.
  • Mix the noodles in your chicken soup. Add quinoa or barley to boost protein and fiber. Serve with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley, a squirt of lime juice and a little hot pepper.
