Beachin' It With Kraft
Kraft is going to the beach. This fall, they're teaming up with Dr. Arthur Agaston and The South Beach Diet. Starting next month, a whole slew of popular Kraft foods will sport "South Beach Diet Recommended" badges. Some products that will proudly display these fancy "stamps of approval" are Boca Burgers, Oscar Mayer deli meats, Kraft 2% and Fat Free Singles (cheese) and more! By the way, if you're unfamiliar with the South Beach Diet, check it out online at southbeachdiet.com. Other than the two week fruit-free phase one (we heart fruit), it's a sensible plan.
NBC will debut the latest weight-loss related reality show on October 19th. "The Biggest Loser" tries to help overweight people lose weight the old fashioned way -- without surgery. There are, however, plenty of TV cameras, Hollywood trainers and fancy diet plans floating around. Caroline Rhea hosts this show, which will have all the elements of other reality shows -- gender-based teams, a weekly elimination, temptation (which on this show include cakes and pies, not oiled-up bikini-clad hotties). At the end of the competition, the biggest LOSER wins...$250,000, a newly slimmed-down physique and a lifetime supply of Häagen-Dazs. (Ok, we're kidding about the ice cream.)
Let's Hear It For the Soy!
A recent study suggests that eating soy-rich products can help prevent the spread of cancer cells in the body. The study found that isoflavones, found almost exclusively in soy foods, inhibited the invasion and spread of breast cancer cells. Long story short: soy is good. Some terrific sources of it are soy milk, soy meat-replacements, soy desserts and soy muffins & pasta!
