Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Nutrition Tips For Actors

Here Are Some Nutrition Tips For Actors: Consuming Fewer Calories When Eating Out

Frequent restaurant goers consume far more calories, fat, saturated fat and sodium than people who eat most of their meals at home. There are ways to avoid overeating and gaining weight by having a plan. For some people this plan includes drinking specific beverages, while for other people this plan means choosing specific low-calorie, high fiber meals one hour before going to dinner. For everyone, it means learning how “to order” your favorite restaurant meals so that they get to you without all the fat and calories. The Nutrition Twins provide nutrition tips for actors that can help you to find out what, specifically, you should do to prevent overeating when dining out and they can teach you how to order your meals so that they arrive at your seat healthfully, yet still tasting great.

Nutriton Tips For Actors: Finding A Healthy Snack

Want a healthy snack that will fill you up without filling you out? Try air-popped popcorn. With a great crunch, plenty of fiber and low in calories (only 31 calories per cup!), it’s sure to keep you satisfied without adding on the pounds. Try seasoning with a dash of cinnamon, or for a flare, add paprika. Want the flavor of butter without the calories and fat? Try “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” spray. (Just make sure to stick to the spray, it is calorie-free, sodium-free, and full of flavor).

Nutrition Twins The Nutrition Twins can help you to find other great snacks that you will love without hating your waistline in the morning.

Dealing With A Food Craving

Researchers show that cravings are like a wave in the ocean. The craving starts and escalates, but then it peaks and subsides. Know that it will subside. When a food craving strikes, imagine yourself like a surfer. Ride the wave until it vanishes. Distract yourself from the craving: Ideally, do something unrelated to eating. Try taking a walk, or a hot bath. Practice yoga, take a nap, or give/get a massage.

In 20 minutes, reevaluate the situation. The craving has probably diminished. So, now what are you going to do about it? You can more rationally decide what, if anything, you are going to eat, and how much of it you’re going to eat. As in surfing, practice makes perfect; the more you practice riding the wave, the easier it becomes.
