DRINK YOUR MILK
If you’re on a New Year’s diet right now, make sure you drink your milk. That is the best way to lose weight – along with a calorie-restricted diet that is high in protein from dairy foods, low in carbohydrates, and coupled with daily exercise. That's the word from researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, who have determined that this type of diet not only helps overweight and obese women lose weight, but also maintain bone health, which is important.
CHUBBY = LONGER LIFE
If you are a little overweight, and are trying to lose that last 5 or 10 pounds, you might want to re-think that New Year diet. A very large and sophisticated international analysis that included almost 3 million adults worldwide found that having a little extra weight actually helps you live longer. When compared with those of normal weight, slightly overweight people had a six percent lower risk of death. Those few extra pounds HELP you if you get sick – and could actually extend your life. Now if you’re obese, the effect goes away and you LOSE years, but slightly overweight turns out is good for you.
PHILLY CHEESE PURISTS
Around here, we know what to put on a cheesesteak. But last week in Florida, a man ordered one at Subway and asked for ketchup. Now, Subway isn’t known for making super-authentic cheesesteaks, but the Subway worker was a bit of a purist, and thought it was blasphemy to request ketchup. So he refused, got in a fight with the customer, and the cops ended up coming. The Subway worker wasn't arrested, but he did lose his job, poor guy. The moral of the story? In food service, as painful as it may be, the customer is always right.
If all the loose coins you have lost behind the sofa cushions and in the bottom of your purse were added up, the total would surprise you. A new study by Halifax Savings estimates that the loose change in your house and car adds up to about $63 million dollars nationwide. Obviously, most loose change is in your pockets. Here are the Top 3 most common places to find loose change:
1) Bottom of a purse, 36%
2) The car, 27%
3) Under the sofa cushions, 23%
And in case you’re wondering, the average amount of loose change behind the sofa cushions is about $2.50.
See you tomorrow!
