Diets are for quitters. At FitToDo, we don't believe in diets. Why starve and scrimp and deny yourself for a few weeks, lose the weight, and then pack it all back on the second you return to your normal eating habits? It's unhealthy, unnatural, and quite frankly, a waste of time. Not to mention, whenever I choose to go on a diet, I’m the crabbiest person on the planet – you’d better run for cover unless you've invented calorie-free donuts.

Our vision seems to be one of the most important senses of the body, which is why we have to protect and care for them every now and then. Most eye problems in children are due to accidents and trauma, whereas adults tend to experience eyestrain due to improper use of the eyes and exposure to harmful conditions. Read along to find out tips on taking good care of the eyes for various age brackets. Infants Because infants and toddlers are too young to take care for themselves, it is the guardian or the parent’s responsibility to protect the baby’s eyes. Babies do not know when to shut their eyes like during dusty conditions. Even while playing, rubbing the eyes with dirty hands may cause serious problems. Hence, when playing with babies, toys and mobiles must be held at least 30 centimeters away from the eyes. Babies’ eyes must not be directed to sunlight. When indoors, the crib must be positioned in such a way that the sun’s rays will not directly strike at the infant. Use a bonnet or a canopy over the head when going outdoors. Naturally, toddlers are prone to touching various objects around him, so parents should always keep an eye on them. The hands must be checked periodically as they may harbor dust and minute particles that can be introduced to the eyes whenever they rub it with their hands. Furthermore, the fingernails must be cut short to prevent the child from inflicting injury to his/her own eyes. Babies should wear mittens. Eye discharges or any eye abnormalities must be reported to the doctor immediately.

When it comes to healthy living, snacking is not necessarily the enemy. In fact, snacking can be your best friend, if you snack wisely. Snacking helps control your appetite and alleviates binging. It’s a good idea to eat a healthy snack before going out for a big dinner so you don’t over eat. In order to snack smart, you have to consider the source. Choose snacks that are natural, healthy and less than 100 calories. Avoid sugary snacks like soda, candy, ice cream and cake. Instead consume foods that satisfy hunger and keep you full for longer periods of time. Healthy suggestions include: a slice of whole wheat toast, fruit or yogurt. You will feel full longer if you combine lean protein, healthy fat and complex carbohydrates; for instance an apple with peanut butter or an avocado mashed and spread on a whole wheat bagel. By including healthy snacks into your diet and eating smaller meals throughout the day instead of just three your blood sugar levels will remain stable and you’ll be energized throughout the day.
