Vibrant fruits and vegetables have standout appeal, but recommendations to "eat the rainbow" can exclude one underappreciated category: white fruits and vegetables. These boast a variety of flavors and noteworthy nutrition accolades, according to research published in <em>Advances in Nutrition</em>.

But it’s easy enough for any average Joe, which is perhaps why it’s gone mainstream. When you cycle your carb intake, you vary how many carbs you eat throughout the week, with some days being low-carb (2½ to 5 servings) and others high-carb (10 to 20 servings). The thinking is that your low-carb days put you in a fat-burning state and eating high-carb boosts your metabolism. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/carb_cycling_to_lose_weight#comments Diet Blog Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D.

New research presented at the Obesity Society’s annual meeting found that women who ate a protein-packed breakfast (30 grams from eggs and sausage) felt more satisfied and ate about 100 calories less at lunch compared to those who ate a low-protein pancake breakfast. A high-protein morning meal also quelled evening snacking (by about 135 calories) in a small study of teenagers. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/how_a_high_protein_breakfast_can_help_you_lose_weight#comments Diet Blog Breakfast Christopher Mohr, Ph.D., R.D.
