Eat More, Weigh Less?

How to manage your weight without being hungry


Can you weigh less without eating less? 

540 calories Have you tried to lose weight by cutting down the amount of food you eat? Do you end up feeling hungry and not satisfied? Or have you avoided trying to lose weight because you're afraid of feeling hungry all the time? If so, you are not alone. Many people throw in the towel on weight loss because they feel deprived and hungry when they eat less. But there is another way. Aim for a slow, steady weight loss by decreasing calorie intake while maintaining an adequate nutrient intake and increasing physical activity. You can cut calories without eating less nutritious food. The key is to eat foods that will fill you up without eating a large amount of calories.


 If I cut calories, won't I be hungry?

 Research shows that people get full by the amount of food they eat, not the number of calories they take in. You can cut calories in your favourite foods by lowering the amount of fat and/or increasing the amount of fiber ­rich ingredients, such as vegetables or fruit. Let's take macaroni and cheese as an example. The original recipe uses whole milk, butter, and full ­fat cheese. This recipe has about 540 calories in one serving (1 cup).








What foods will fill me up?

In order to be able to cut calories without eating less and feeling hungry, you need to replace some higher calorie foods with foods that are lower in calories and fat and will fill you up. In general, this means foods with lots of water and fiber in them. The chart below will help you make smart food choices that are part of a healthy eating plan. 









Good things can come in big packages 

People eat more than they realize when faced with large portion sizes. This usually means eating too many calories. But, not all large portions are created equal. Larger portions of water­ and fiber ­rich foods, like fruits, vegetables, and broth­ based soups, can fill you up with less calories. 


Start with an appetizer 

Research shows that if you eat a low­ calorie appetizer before a meal, you will eat fewer total calories during the meal. Start your meals with a broth ­based soup or a green salad without a large amount of cheese, or croutons. 


Fruits and veggies: Keep it simple

Most fruits and veggies are low­ calorie and will fill you up, but the way you prepare them can change that. Breading and frying, and using high ­fat creams or butter with vegetables and fruit will add extra calories. Try steaming vegetables and using spices and low ­fat sauces for flavor. And enjoy the natural sweetness of raw fruit. 


What about beverages? 

While drinking beverages is important to good health, they don't help you feel full and satisfied the way food does. Choose drinks without calories, like water, sparkling water, or unsweetened iced tea. Drink fat­ free or low­ fat milk instead of 2% or whole milk.

#COVID-19 #Vaccines and #Vaccination

  Key Points Available evidence suggests the currently authorized mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) provide protection against a variety of strains, including B.1.1.7 (originally identified in the United Kingdom) and B.1.351 (originally identified in South Africa). Other vaccines show reduced efficacy against B.1.351 but may still protect against severe disease. Continued monitoring of vaccine effectiveness against variants is needed. A growing body of evidence indicates that people fully vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) are less likely to have asymptomatic infection or to transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others. Studies are underway to learn more about the benefits of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine. However, the risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus. At this time, there are limited data on vaccine effectiveness in people who

Frequently Asked Questions about #COVID-19 #Vaccination

If I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine? Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible—although rare—that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19. Learn more about why getting vaccinated is a safer way to build protection than getting infected. If you were treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you should wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure what treatments you received or if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine. If you or your child has a history of multisystem inflam

COVID 19 - Delta and Delta Plus Variant

SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant, also known as lineage B.1.617.2, is a variant of lineage B.1.617 of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It was first detected in India in late 2020. The World Health Organization (WHO) named it the Delta variant on 31 May 2021. It has mutations in the gene encoding the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein causing the substitutions T478K, P681R and L452R, which are known to affect the transmissibility of the virus as well as whether it can be neutralised by antibodies for previously circulating variants of the COVID-19 virus. Public Health England (PHE) in May 2021 observed secondary attack rates to be 51–67% higher than the alpha variant. On 7 May 2021, PHE changed their classification of lineage B.1.617.2 from a variant under investigation (VUI) to a variant of concern (VOC) based on an assessment of transmissibility being at least equivalent to B.1.1.7 (Alpha variant); the UK's SAGE subsequently estimated a "realistic" possibility of being 50% mor
