Yet another super cool post by Clinical Dietitian, and Friend, Maryam AlHamad!

“Did you know that the more colorful your plate is, the more years you can add to your life? …. my advice to you is pretty simple: for a healthy variety, think color!” – Maryam AlHamad, Khaleejesque

Way to go Maryam! Keep it up 🙂


My good friend Dg, who blogs @ KCAL, forwarded very insightful and somewhat eye opening info @ P0ach:

“I stumbled across this public-awareness campaign launched by the New York Health Department. Basically, it is encouraging people to not drink themselves fat, to cut back on soda and other sugary beverages and go with water, seltzer or low fat milk instead (something we oh so dearly need here in our beloved country)” – Dg. of KCAL @ P0ach

It’s shocking to tell you the truth to find out about these numbers and figures!! So please watch what you’re drinking 🙂 Boy I don’t want to know how much sugar I had after breaking my fast in Ramadan!!

G’Job DG 🙂 Keep up the awesome blogging and awareness spreading!

“the recommended dietary intake of fat is 30% of your daily total calorie intake. Use good healthy fats such as the omega 3 fatty acids to fullfill these calories. DO NOT use refined sugar ( which I personally call white poison).” Dg, KCAL

Great Reminder DG! An interesting post regarding weight-loss and fat-less diets 🙂 Boy do we need this to be practiced during Ramadan.

A good friend of mine, Dg, an MSc graduate in nutrition, just posted an interesting entry about brown vs. white sugar.

Brown rice is more nutritious than white rice – TRUE
Brown bread is more nutritious than white bread- TRUE

Brown sugar is more nutritious than white sugar- FALSE
” – Dg, KCAL

Read up the rest of the article and you’ll know why it’s FALSE :d

Keep it up Dg .. All the way up 🙂

“UTS Diabetes for iPhone is an application that allows you to keep track of your diabetes records and optionally to share your results with your doctor, relatives, and friends via the online service.” – Universal Tracking Systems

This great iPhone application was one of the submissions to the Diabetes Mine Design Contest. Such application can be a catalyst for behavioral change in a diabetic lifestyle!

Seeing the demo and the functionality it has, i think it would be a great application for managing diabetes. I wonder if they’ll have an Android and WinMo versions in the future 🙂 I think they should to make it universal and accessible.

Another great article by Maryam AlHamad! Keep it up Maryoom 🙂

“Eat well and stay hydrated and you will look pretty. So before you reach for all the cleansers, moisturizers, and toners in your bathroom, add these foods to your diet to clear the way for a fairer complexion. Bad skin has ruined many people who would otherwise look stunning. So don’t take this personally, but you can probably look a whole lot better than you do right now. Healthy skin is just a simple diet away.” – Maryam AlHamad,
