Regular: By the Numbers</strong></p> <p>Greek yogurt has surged in popularity in recent years, and with good reason. Straining out the extra whey in yogurt makes Greek yogurt thick, creamy and tangy. The plain variety has less sugar and more protein than typical yogurt. But regular yogurt delivers twice the bone-strengthening mineral calcium. Greek yogurt also tends to be more expensive than regular yogurt, because more milk goes into making each cup.</p> <p>Pictured Recipe: <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/apple_oatmeal.html">Apple Oatmeal</a></p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/which_is_healthier_greek_yogurt_or_regular_yogurt#comments Food Blog Diet Food & health news Health Lisa D'Agrosa Nutrition Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 17 Mar 2014 16:35:22 +0000 Nifer 282212 at http://www.eatingwell.com Our Picks for the Best Healthy Pasta Sauces http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/our_picks_for_the_best_healthy_pasta_sauces <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/our_picks_for_the_best_healthy_pasta_sauces" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/23368.jpg" alt="Our Picks for the Best Healthy Pasta Sauces Blog Post" title="Our Picks for the Best Healthy Pasta Sauces Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>It’s hard to beat the ease of opening a jar (unless, of course, it’s screwed on super-tight) to help bring pasta night together in a flash.

Our challenge is coming to a close, but you can and should continue with your healthy eating and exercise habits to meet and maintain your long-term weight-loss goals. One strategy for continued success is to practice eating mindfully, which is about paying attention to how you feel as you eat and focusing on your food . One way to do this is to eat more slowly. It takes your body about 20 minutes to register feeling full, and eating more slowly may help you lose weight.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/week_4_practice_eating_mindfully#comments Diet Blog Diet Good choices Health Lisa D'Agrosa Weight loss Weight-Loss Challenge Wellness Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 30 Dec 2013 19:33:47 +0000 Stefan_20 280772 at http://www.eatingwell.com Week 3: Get Social Support to Make Losing Weight Fun http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/week_3_get_social_support_to_make_losing_weight_fun <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/week_3_get_social_support_to_make_losing_weight_fun" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MCL_102167800_women_walking_Ardito_300_0.jpg" alt="Week 3: Get Social Support to Make Losing Weight Fun Blog Post" title="Week 3: Get Social Support to Make Losing Weight Fun Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Your social connections—family, friends, coworkers, online buddies—can help you slim down, so use them to to your advantage! When friends participated in a weight-loss program together, they lost more weight—and were more successful at keeping it off—than people who did the same program on their own, says research. Plus, dieting with others can be fun and make you more likely to stick to your commitments. You’ll share successes and challenges, help support each other’s goals, eat healthy meals and exercise together. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/week_3_get_social_support_to_make_losing_weight_fun#comments Diet Blog Diet Good choices Health Lisa D'Agrosa Weight loss Weight-Loss Challenge Wellness Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 30 Dec 2013 19:11:28 +0000 Stefan_20 280771 at http://www.eatingwell.com Day 12: Get right back on track when you slip up http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_12_get_right_back_on_track_when_you_slip_up <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_12_get_right_back_on_track_when_you_slip_up" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/BG7538_1.JPG" alt="Day 12: Get right back on track when you slip up Blog Post" title="Day 12: Get right back on track when you slip up Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Did a coworker bring in homemade brownies and you sampled one (OK, three)?

Eating foods that are low in calories, like vegetables, lets you increase the size of your portions. But it’s not just extra veggies; there are other ways to help you pump up the volume of your food as well. Try adding liquids (think: bean soup instead of a smaller portion of just beans) and eating airy foods (snacking on popcorn or choosing large tubular pasta shapes instead of denser shapes). </p> <p><strong>Pictured Recipe: <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/salmon_roasted_vegetable_salad.html">Salmon & Roasted Vegetable Salad</a></strong></p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_14_how_to_eat_more_and_still_lose_weight#comments Diet Blog Diet Good choices Health Lisa D'Agrosa Weight loss Weight-Loss Challenge Wellness Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Sun, 29 Dec 2013 18:27:16 +0000 Stefan_20 280753 at http://www.eatingwell.com Day 13: Small Changes Add Up to Big Weight Loss http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_13_small_changes_add_up_to_big_weight_loss <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_13_small_changes_add_up_to_big_weight_loss" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/BR8269_Krasner_0.JPG" alt="Day 13: Small Changes Add Up to Big Weight Loss Blog Post" title="Day 13: Small Changes Add Up to Big Weight Loss Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Forget embarking on a dramatic diet shake-up (read: cutting out all carbs or having cabbage soup every day).

Try carrots and hummus, nonfat cottage cheese and orange slices, plain nonfat yogurt and diced pear, almonds and raisins, or an apple with almond butter. </p> <p><strong>Pictured Recipe: <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chocolate_cherry_snack_bars.html">Chocolate-Cherry Snack Bars</a></strong></p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_11_be_a_slim_snacker#comments Diet Blog Diet Good choices Health Lisa D'Agrosa Weight loss Weight-Loss Challenge Wellness Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Sun, 29 Dec 2013 14:20:07 +0000 Stefan_20 280750 at http://www.eatingwell.com Day 2: Plan Your Meals and Snacks http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_2_plan_your_meals_and_snacks <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/day_2_plan_your_meals_and_snacks" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MF8225_Ardito_2.JPG" alt="Day 2: Plan Your Meals and Snacks Blog Post" title="Day 2: Plan Your Meals and Snacks Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Having a plan helps you reach for healthy foods when you arrive home ravenous or need a snack in a pinch when you’re on the go, instead of relying on convenience foods or vending machines.
