Fat Attack

Strictly speaking from a health standpoint, 40% of our kids 5 to 8 years old show at least one heart-risk factor: physical inactivity, obesity, high cholesterol or high blood pressure. The President's Council on Physical Fitness has recognized the urgent need to help our youngsters understand and learn the need for exercise. As parents, we truly need to encourage our kids to become more active and to participate in sports.

One out of almost every ten American adults are 30% overweight. Let's cut through the maze of confusion and bring up a few tips that might simplify things. Eat lean and leafy. Educate yourself on which foods have a high fat content. Avoid animal fats as much as possible, as they are a major source of cholesterol. 100% of fat you eat is stored in your body as fat...not as lean muscle tissue. Fat cannot be converted to muscle, nor can muscle be converted into fat because tissue types don't change. One gram of fat is equal to 9 calories. Always consider this, and add up the calories you plan to eat. then compute what percentage of the calories come from fat. If it is above 30% of the total caloric value, avoid it! One piece of chicken without skin is nearly 50% lower in calories and fat than with the skin on. (never mind adding frying to the mix!) Read all the food labels, first check the fat content, then the caloric content and compute. You'll be amazed how quicklyyou learn and how lean you can get, without all the confusion.
