Having 3g of plant sterols can help lower your cholesterol by 10-15% and I regularly see this being the most effective thing people can do to lower their cholesterol in my practice.
The trouble for some is cheese, milk and vegetable spread are not always something people eat and to get 2-3 serves a day having more choices to get plant sterols from like the new Jalna Proheart Yoghurt makes it easier with more choices.
It tastes great and is in a cute tub that looks strong enough to carry in you bag to work for a snack. Was not the cheapest yoghurt.
Check it out and let me know what you think of the taste and price?
If you want to get less sugar would you really drink this? Most soft drinks are 9-10% sugar this is 7% sugar and gatorade is 6% sugar and diet softdrink is <1% sugar. Seems like a very small reduction in sugar (14g less sugar than normal pepsi) and calories (50 calories less per can than regular pepsi) when you still get 100calories a can and you compromise on taste.
I think you should only drink non diet softdrink occasionally if it is one of your favourite foods. Otherwise give it a miss and stick to your favourites if you can not have them all the time.
It tasted a little less syrupy than real pepsi but not as fake as pepsi max so the calories are like the taste 30% less.
Remember this is not a diet softdrink treat it like real soft drink at 100 calories a can and do not drink it daily.
I would love to hear what you think about reduced sugar vs sugar free? did you like the taste?
This is a presentation on appetite and how its more than your food but also your environment and plate size!

Here are 3 ways I see people unintentionally gain weight over time or regain weight. Imagine of course we want to do the opposite of these to have good health and a healthy weight.
1 Do not calorie bargain
Calorie bargaining means to do more than your normal weekly exercise when you eat or drink more calories from Extras foods than you normally do. An example would be 20min walking, 15min jogging and 10min running to burn off an extra glass of wine. Calorie bargaining is great because you can enjoy your lifestyle with out gaining weight and feeling guilty. Remember you can do this a little like once a week but its not a magic ticket to eat what you want. It also gives you the ability to stick to healthy eating most of the time.
2 Stop drinking alcohol
I always see people stop their favourite foods which is the last thing you should do. Cutting down on excess calories from non healthy foods is always important when trying to manage your weight, but having none of your favourite foods ever again is not sustainable. Moderation is key to weight loss so try and have less not none.
3 Do not use the scales
People who use the scales (even though they will fluctuate up and down a kilogram daily with food and fluid) know when they are regaining or losing. This helps be motivated when losing weight and aware when regaining. Taking action when you are 1kg above your goal weight in weight maintaenace is easy, but with no scales you may gain 5kg before your clothes let you know. Also weighting weekly helps you know if you can stay on auto pilot in your lifestyle or you need to add some focus again for a while.
The last thing we want to do at the Nutrition Experts is tell you to stop your favourite foods. If you are struggling to find a balence though or want to know how to calorie bargain for your metabolism we would love to help you out face to face.
