    That is really cool. I have to say that food choices change once we learn how many calories they pack. Also puts in perspective how many calories we are eating when we are munching away at our regular snacks. It definitely makes it easier to chose healthier options when you see how little you get when you chose overly processed meals. The one thing that baffled me is that even though it is nice to have the nutritional value on the foods we buy, the one thing that is not so hot is that we are informed of the calories for a ‘serving size’, and myself for one, have never measured to see what a serving size really looks like. I am petrified to find out how many serving sizes I had in one sitting. I think seeing it in pictures is a great tool to make us more aware of what we are eating.

    Great post.

    Vitamin E is EXTREMELY important part of the diet. Every day I eat avocado which is high in it.

    I combine this intake with a ‘breakdown’ exercise and my BioAntler supplement.
    For those who aren’t familiar with the routine it’s where you set aside multiple weights (or use a machine) and start at your max weight, do 5-10 reps, drop down 5 lbs in weight, do 5-10 reps, drop down 5lbs..etc. until you get to the lowest weight in your arsenal. by the time you’re done 5lbs feels like 100. Great workout
