facts

*Iodine, a trace mineral in a very small quantity in your body controls the speed of your metabolism by affecting the production of the thyroid hormone thyroxine.
*Eat an apple everyday, a year-round source of pectin, which is a food fiber that traps cholesterol (oat bran does the same.)
*Vitamin B1 Thiamin is essential for carbohydrate metabolism, growth and muscle tone, the nervous system, and stabolizes the appetite.
*Drinking tea with your meals decreases iron absorption.
*Almonds and pistachios are rich in protein and contain key trace minerals, zinc and boron, that stimulates brain activity.
*Vitamin C is an important agent in wound healing. Vitamine C is needed for the formation of collegen.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Most of us would succeed in small things if we weren't so troubled with blind ambition. H.W.L.

I heard somewhere on TV a couple of weeks ago that chocolate candy would be changing. It would go from butter to oils, something like that? I love my chocolate, which I crave often. They keep changing it to the point of feeling waxy and lacking a cocoa taste and too much sugar. Now take out the buttery taste, keep it up and maybe I just won't like it and will lose weight by not enjoying the tase at all anymore!
