Day 24 - Calories from Fat


Borrowed from asmellygirl

Green Tea

Finally, I started sipping Green Tea. It had been lying in my cupboard since last 6 months (No, hadn't expired!) but I never got around drinking it. The only times, I volunteered to sip-it, were at the Spa. It always seems the right thing to do there *guilt.speaks*! Psychologically, I think that the massage is going to get the toxins out, so might as well give them a little push and get them out 'completely'.

It tastes good (warm or chilled), has zero calories, helps burn fat, and is a natural antioxidant. Also, I recently found out it is one of the reasons why Japanese have great skin. Now I am wondering why I hadn't started sipping on it sooner ... Hmmmm ...

United States of Amazing-hood

I have been driving in the U.S. for a little less than 2 years now. One thing that always amuses and amazes me is their road discipline. There is this one 'freeway' experience I look forward to daily, but it doesn't always happen (and that disappoints me, sometimes). Every morning, when I am on the freeway, I have to change the lane in order to take my Exit. While, the people entering the freeway, have the to exchange their lane with mine. Every now and then, it so happens, that all the cars (in each lane) are moving from one lane to another in perfect alignment consecutively (Yes! It has happened more than once). That always catches my fancy and amuses me. I know, it's silly but I look forward to it.

Calories from Fat

I was asked this question yesterday, so I thought I might as well answer it here. It means the amount of fat in the food item in relation to total number of calories. Calories from fat in simpler terms is 'just that' - Calories from fat. For example, if a food item has 100 calories in total and 80 calories are from fat, then it is a BIG NO-NO! However, it has about 20 calories from fat then it is reasonable. Fat adds a lot more calories to the food, so preferably you want calories from fat to be low and from protein & fiber to be higher. Makes sense?!?!?!
