Is it ok to skip breakfast?

NO!

While eating breakfast is important for all ages, breakfast is especially important for children and adolescents. According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast are more likely to have better concentration, problem-solving skills and eye-hand coordination. They may also be more alert and creative, and less likely to miss days of school.

While eating breakfast is important for all ages, breakfast is especially important for children and adolescents. According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast are more likely to have better concentration, problem-solving skills and eye-hand coordination. They may also be more alert and creative, and less likely to miss days of school.

They believe skipping the first meal of the day increases the chances of becoming obese, developing diabetes or even having a heart attack.

Their study found that people who eat whole-grain cereals every morning are among those most likely to see the health benefits.

Dr Mark Pereira and colleagues at Harvard Medical School analysed the eating habits of 1,198 black people and 1,633 white participants.

Overall, 47% of whites and 22% of blacks said they ate breakfast every morning.

Health benefits

They found that people who ate breakfast every day were a third less likely to be obese compared to those who skipped the meal.

In addition, they were half as likely to have blood-sugar problems, which increase the risk of developing diabetes or having high cholesterol, which is a known risk factor for heart disease.

The researchers believe that eating first thing in the morning may help to stabilise blood sugar levels, which regulate appetite and energy.

They suggest people who eat breakfast are less likely to be hungry during the rest of the day and are, therefore, less likely to overeat.

"Our results suggest that breakfast may really be the most important meal of the day," said Dr Periera.

"It appears that breakfast may play an important role in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease."

The researchers have recently started to examine what those involved in the study ate for breakfast, to see if certain foods were more likely to help them stay healthy.

Initial results have suggested that whole-grain cereals may be of benefit.

They found that people who ate these were 15% less likely to have blood sugar problems but Dr Pereira said: "We need to do more research."

Growing evidence

The British Dietetic Association said the findings added to the growing body of evidence in support of eating breakfast every morning.

"There is a lot of scientific evidence behind this," spokeswoman Catherine Collins told BBC News Online.

"Obviously the traditional fry-up is too fat and calorie rich to aid weight control, but cereals and toast are of benefit.

"Breakfast can be a very good source of vitamins. Many processed cereals are fortified with vitamins and minerals which people can find it difficult to get elsewhere if they are just having two meals a day."

can diabetic people live normally?

can diabetic people live normally?

A diabetic who does this can usually lead a normal life, engage in everyday activities, choose nearly any career (a few do have restrictions), have a family, travel and so forth:

# Plan a food, medication and activity plan that works for you.

# Speak with a dietitian about a diet that you can follow.

# Buy low-fat cookbooks, sugar-free cookbooks and cookbooks written specifically for diabetics.

# Lose weight if you are overweight. Losing weight can make a big difference in your treatment plan.

# Join a gym, join a softball team, sign up for karate: Exercise and activity are essential to all of us and extremely important for a diabetic

# Take care to plan your eating and medication around your exercise. Some people find that eating a light carbohydrate snack about half an hour before exercising is a good idea.

# Make your life more active. Get up and walk around at work if your job is sedentary, climb the stairs, walk to the store.

# Wear a medic alert bracelet. It is vital that you be identified as a diabetic in case of a medical emergency.

# Speak to your doctor if you are planning a long trip. Crossing time zones can throw your medication/eating schedule out of whack.

# Be prepared. Always carry a snack with you. Carry concentrated sources of glucose such as hard candy.

# Keep a separate blood glucose meter at your place of work or school. This will make it easier to monitor your blood sugar when you are away from home.

# Feel free to eat out in restaurants, but watch what you are eating. Avoid huge portions. Share a dessert rather than eat a whole one yourself.

# Drink a glass of wine if you enjoy it, but don't overdo it. The American Diabetes Association recommends only one alcoholic drink per day for women and two for men.

# Avoid smoking and secondhand smoke. Diabetics have twice the risk of heart disease as the rest of the population and can't afford the extra risk of smoking.

#. Keep abreast of medical developments. Contact the American Diabetes Association for updates in research, new monitoring devices, and so on.

Breathing Problem?

Breathing Problem?

I've received an email a couple of weeks ago that said that Aspartame poisoning has right many side effects. Aspartame is in all diet drinks and hundreds of foods that are lower in calorie. Some of the schools are taking out fruit drinks because they are high in calorie and substituting Aspartame which is lower in calorie but has so many bad side effects. Some are:

Multiple scerosis symptoms, lupus symptoms, vision loss, hearing loss, tinnitus, fibromyalgia, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, join pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss. And others.

The good part is: It is reversible. Just STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame in food labels! Many products are fortified with Aspartame. The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance. Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.

Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet. So called "behavior modification prescription drugs".

Diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed y men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome. Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy. etc.

100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Sadly MONSANTOS patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED! There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a "piece of the Aspartame pie." I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is. And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Assocition, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians? This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. These organizations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products. Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants. The bill would also institute independent studies on the know n dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms. The bill was killed. It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed now! YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW. Please print this out and/or email to your family and friends. They have a right to know too.

We the people can do a lot if we talk about this to anyone who will listen. Our congressmen, our doctors, anybody that you know who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and lupus, etc.ADD, ADHD. Find out if these people drink any diet sodas. If so, tell them to stop immediately and to check other foods for Aspartame. Millions are suffering a slow death unnecessarily; and they don't know it.

You can also look up Aspartame on line. There are many sites full of information.

Please pass this on.

God Bless. Please excuse any errors in spelling in this.
