Healthy Drinking And Eating
This is a 3-fer:
Question – I have a problem with triglycerides and my doctor said I needed to stop drinking, even though I don’t drink that much. What’s the relationship between triglycerides and drinking and are these some alcoholic beverages worse than others?
Alcohol is metabolized like sugar because it is a product of sugar fermentation. It has to do with physical activity (of the consumer!!); I mean the calories generated must be used for energy. If not, it is on its way to storage deposits pathway, which are TRI-GLYCERIDES.
Question – I love hot dogs and I only buy the ones that say “pure beef”. Are those legitimate and is there such a thing as a healthy hot dog?
There is NO such thing as Healthy Hot Dog. Hot dogs taste good because of its spice blend loaded with salt. Hot dogs are made from parts not fit for retail sale as prime cuts, ground beef, steak etc. Hope I am not making it sound graphically GROSS!?
Question – Are veggie burgers really a healthy alternative to eating meat, or are the health benefits overrated?
YES & NO. It depends on the ingredients used. Read the ingredient list all ready to eat foods (manufactured foods). Thanks to NLEA (The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990).
