East Indian Foods
Better choices for east Indian food?
Although I love the tastes, I found that eating east Indian food at a restaurant last night was very hard on my system. Too much oil in the preparation. I'm sure there are better choices on the menu but I don't know which ones to pick. Any advice cause I love the spices and the tastes!

Dr. Perricone's 7 secrets to Beauty, Health and Longevity is an excellent book. One section called "Ten Minutes to Turn Back Time", an anti-aging T-Tapp workout, looks promising. Has anyone tried Teresa Tapp's program? Let me know how effective it is.

Sexy Muscles
Not sure where I found this info, but I thought I'd share it with the community.
Here are nine ways to get sexier muscles:
1. Move very slowly. Take at least two seconds to lift and two to lower. Move slowly through every inch of motion.
2. Go deep. Use deep, full ranges of motion whereever possible. If it bothers your joints, shorten your range.
3. Watch your posture. good posture helps keep you in proper alignment, and it looks good too. Keep your shoulders down, belly in, chest up, and back just slightly arched.
4. Do it as long as it feels good. If you can't hold the right posture, stop or continue with lighter weight.
5. Stop talking; start doing. don't break the mood of your lifting experience by stopping to chat.
6. Tell yourself how good you are. Maintain an inner dialogue, like, "come on, no. focus. Shoulders down. Belly in. You can do another one. Yes!"
7. Set the mood. If you listen to music under your headsets, find music that encourages you to feel. Avoid heavy metal, acid rock and other nerve-numbing music.
8. Go for quality over quantity. Two slow workouts a week equal three fast, sloppy ones.
9. Size matters. Do more reps (9-12) of exercises like lunges that work larger muscle groups. Do fewer reps (5-6) or exercises designed to work smaller muscles like the shoulders and biceps.
Hope this helps - I am training now (goal focused), instead of exercising.Confused

Fiber, dietary
Very Happy
In my own Dr. Morris' diet, I thought it would be a good idea to share how this diet was developed so that others can benefit from its anti-cancer components. Some of the following information was found on the internet, so please ask if you want the source information.

Today, I'll 'tout' Dietary fiber. It is very important for health promotion and disease prevention. Dietary fiber reduces cholesterol levels, normalizes blood sugar levels, and promotes bowel regularity.

Here are some of the common categories of Dietary Fiber:
Cellulose, found in bran, legumes, peas, root vegetables, cabbage family, outer covering of seeds and apples
Hemicellulose, found in bran and whole grains
Gums, found oatmeal, barley and legumes
found in apples, strawberries and citrus fruits
Lignin, found in root vegetables, wheat, fruits with edible sees (such as strawberries)
Resistant Starches, found in ripe bananas, potatoes

Practically speaking, I usually open a can of mixed beans, drain them well, then pack 1/2 cup portions into zip lock bags, freeze them. I try to put some beans on whatever, daily!
To health!

Breast cancer, anyone?
I've joined this community today and realized that it would be a good idea to post in the "special dieting situations" area as well.
I'm in the "survivorship" mode of this disease now, after going through what I needed to do.
Fortunately, I can now focus on lifestyle changes which will hopefully give me a healthy, fit, and longer life.
Check out my Dr. Morris cancer prevention diet - I have spent many hours researching a total body plan which also incorporates a sense of aliveness and awareness in everyday life.
