Paris Hilton Diet - Diet Tips for Blondes?

paris Hilton - new diet - favourite food

Fad Diet - Fad Diets, Fun, and Weight Loss Tips

What is The Paris Hilton Diet? Is Paris Hilton a vegetarian or Vegan ? This headline suggests she is....'Paris Hilton Tells Dieters: Eat the Most Fabulous Food There Is!' - That sounds like a vegan diet to me.

In her book, Confessions of an Heiress Paris Hilton her blonde girl teen diet advice. A die-hard fan of McDonald’s and Taco Bell, she recommends eating chocolate, fast food, lasagna, and Coca Cola.

Maybe - thats all vegan hey? ( Vegan Chocolate, Vegan Fast Food, Vegan Lasagne and Coca Cola?)

The bleached blonde fashion junky also encourages girls to eat plenty of sushi, ( packed with antioxidant-rich veggies ?) seaweed and fish.

And as well as The Paris Hilton Diet tips, some domestic advice "Learning how to make healthy meals at home will save you both money and calories and will also impress your family! Paris also recommends staying away from diet sodas and artificial sweeteners, girls to drink the real version instead. Although drinking Coca-Cola may not seem like a diet tip that doctors would stand behind, the dippy diva is right in cautioning her audience to be wary of diet foods. Just because a food has “diet” in the name doesn’t mean that you should be eating it, so make sure that you don’t fall for these reduced fat food faux pas. (Go girl! many reduced fat items are laced with sugar!)

The heiress also believes that life is too short to deprive yourself of the foods you really love.

Thank goodness!

Milk: is it good or bad for us? MSN Exposes Dairy Truths

Milk: is it good or bad for us? We weigh up the evidence for and against - MSN Health UK:

"Milk has for years been lauded for its many health benefits, but recent research has also linked it to numerous health conditions. One study discovered that women who consumed more than two servings of skimmed milk were 44% more likely to develop severe acne, possibly due to the hormones present in milk."

Salad Eaters - Prove Vegan diet for health food

19/09/2006 - People who eat salads have higher serum levels of vitamins C and E, folic acid, and carotenoids, according to a large study of US adults that suggests these nutrients are well absorbed in the body from raw vegetables.

Researchers at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans based their findings on data from a federal health and nutrition survey of 17,688 US adults between 1988 and 1994. For the study, published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, salad consumption was assessed based on intakes of salad, raw vegetables and salad dressing.
The study contributes to the existing body of research showing Americans are not getting enough fruits and vegetables and could serve as a roadmap for supplement formulators to target specific populations not getting enough of the nutrients in question.

IQ Test a bit Fishy Says Nutritionist

Fish Oil IQ test a red herring says leading London nutritionist on ITN - Video

Founder of Foods For Life Yvonne Bishop-Weston tells ITV ITN reporter Chris Choi that Fish oil is not a long term solution for UK school children. "It's unsustainable both financially and environmentally"

ITN report microscopic sea plants ( Algae )may be a cheaper more environmentally friendly option to address the predicament of low levels of omega 3 long chain fatty acids DHA and EPA in childrens diets.

Meanwhile Jamie Oliver star of Jamies School Dinners on Channel 4 says parents who fail to properly feed their children are "a*******s and t******s"

Yvonne says parents should be more responsible but not blamed as the people who they look to for guidance such as Doctors and Schools have a limited understanding of nutrition themselves.

"When you have Burger King offering Hospital Catering (Croydon, Southampton, Cambridge) it's a bit harsh to start calling parents rude names - Mr Oliver needs to aim his fully loaded barrels a bit higher!" advises Yvonne.

New interim guidelines for caterers of school meals were released by DfES , SFT and Govt this week. Free water has to be made available, less fatty and sugary foods, and it's now illegal to feed school children testicles, rectum, udder, feet and other nasty smelly bits of animals often hidden in sausages, burgers and twizzlers.
