A head cold is actually the very same thing as the common cold, and affects the upper respiratory tract of patients.

The biggest challenging problem to be learned about the American children is about obesity, the number of clinically obese children has doubled in the last two decades, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Obesity Problem in Children
Obese children are also developing diseases like Type 2 Diabetes that used to only occur in adults. And overweight kids tend to become overweight adults, continuing to put them at greater risk for heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke.
Perhaps potentially more devastating is that children who are teased a lot can develop low self-esteem and depression.
There are many households in which not only one or more children are obese, but frequently one or both parents are also obese. Many parents are also at risk for Type 2 Diabetes.
Even members of a household who do not have these problems will benefit from a low carb lifestyle because all Americans are far too dependent on processed sugar and carbohydrates, putting all of us at risk for obesity and myriad other health problems. Does any of this sound like you?
Weight Loss Program – The Five Keys to Low Carb Success
Adopt The Five Keys to Low Carb Success for your whole family. I sincerely hope you know by now that the :
First is “Information”. Find ways for whole family learn the principles of health according to low carb, including even the members of your household who may not be obese. At least those needing a lifestyle change should learn as much as they can about low carb.
The Second Key is “Motivation”. We advise our members to find ways to motivate themselves when the going gets tough. Motivation helps us answer important internal questions for ourselves, such as, “Why am I really doing this – what’s the payoff?” “Why do I need to stay the course?” “Who benefits from my being healthy, trim and peaceful besides me – do I have a responsibility to anyone else?” In a household setting you can go through this process and then show your children how to do the same. Then the whole family can pledge their goals to each other at a special family meeting.
The Third Key is, “Nutrition”. While seemingly simple, keeping a varied menu that the whole family looks forward to eating every day is not easy. Having effective diet for weight loss is important. Many low carb recipe books are turning up these days; Use them to entice your whole household into a low carb lifestyle!
The Fourth Key is, “Fitness”. We can exercise with our significant other and children – “the family that exercises together…” But it is a wonderful thing to know workout for obese beginners to exercise together, even just you and one child. You can go together for walking, jogging, bicycling, tennis, golf, basketball and so on. There are numerous possibilities. The best part is, while you are building a healthy low carb lifestyle, you are also building your relationship with your child.
The Fifth Key is, “Support”. Build a support network in online forums and by emailing each other inside the community, your family is a natural support base! Act on the previous four Keys in your family, and your home will become your support base. Fantastic!
If you implement even one of the Five Keys in your home life, your will see definite results in a very short time, for your physical health and also for the emotional and spiritual health of your family.

Let’s talk about home dieting. An easy and efficient way to help with weight loss and living healthy is to buy the right food. The good news here is that in many cases you can just modify the items you buy rather than buying something completely different. Some of this information may not be completely new to you, but I hope to get some awareness out there.
High Fiber Diet And Weight Loss
Fiber content is mostly indigestible fully in the body because we don’t contain the enzymes to do so. What Fiber does is compact our food and moisture and clear out our intestines on the way down.
The regularity that Fiber gives to the bowel movement has many benefits. First, I would like to define regular- I mean have a bowel movement AT LEAST 1 time daily.
What doctors consider normal is the national average, that’s why blood pressure normality seems to raise every couple years. So if you were told that going every 3 days is okay, its not.
Regular bowel movements keep your intestinal muscles healthy, toxins out of your body; regulate proper water weight, and nutrition absorption (all of these can also help with your complexion).
Secondly Fiber just so happens to be in foods that are all good for you! Fiber is found in Whole Wheat, Brown Rice, Seeds, Whole Grains, etc… When you are eating ‘Whole’ foods you get the benefit of the Fiber and many B-Vitamins (energy), protein, and iron.
Fiber and ‘whole’ foods are denser. You just can’t simply eat as much as you would. This helps you on your goal of losing weight as one of the things you need to do is learn portion control.
Fiber is a great snack before meals as well. A slice of whole wheat bread in your system some time before meals will greatly reduce your appetite.
The whole wheat portion is a natural part of food that related with obesity. It is processed off of the grain when you it is purchased in a non-whole wheat fashion.
When you take in the whole grain your body must use more energy (work off calories) to break off this ‘capsule’ of the wheat.
Fiber Diet Food – Flax Seed
Now I would like to talk about what I think as the greatest of all fiber foods- Flax Seed. Flax Seed, like many other seeds, are an excellent source of oils along with protein and iron and such.
The oils of nuts and seeds are quite healthy and Flax Seed is not only no exception but the king of all oils. Flax Seed is high in Omega 3 fatty acids; an essential fatty acid that our body cannot produce on its own it must be outsourced.
Flax Seed has a high content of fiber and it’s a ‘moist laxative’. Flax seed needs to be ground up prior to use for full effect, but I like to buy it pre ground from say Uncle Bob’s.
What is the usage you say? It can be used at every meal if you wanted to, but specifically- Sprinkle on your cereal, cook in with hot cereal, goes great on peanut butter sandwiches, add to soups, add to crock pot meals, add to chili, wok it in to meals early when you are sautéing just to name a few.
Flax Seed has a very subtle taste and usually won’t be tasted. Its taste is sorta nutty when you can taste it so it’s especially great with anything that would have peanut butter or where that taste would compliment the dish.
Diet Foods And Meals Shopping List
Here’s a little sample shopping list to give you some ideas for diet:
- Flax Seed
- Multi Grain Hot Cereal
- Whole Wheat Bread (Double fiber or Whole Grain)
- Whole Grain Pastas
- Whole Wheat crackers
- Fiber One Cereal
- Whole Wheat Waffles (Eggo’s Cinnamon Whole Grain Waffles are great!)
- Brown Rice
- Buy Wheat Flower and use instead of White
There are many whole wheat pasta sides available
- Eat the fruit, not the fruit juice
- Buy fresh vegetables
- Have side salads at as many meals as possible (easy and light dressings!!)
- When you’re out getting a salad load up on the green vegetables
- Whole Wheat tortilla chips
- And much more!
Keep an open mind about it and look for a whole wheat alternative to what you normally buy.
