Diet Thoughts for Your Simple Diet

When dieting, our brain waves travel on different routes. They may be extremely confused about all of these troubling Diet Thoughts hanging around the Diet Jungle these days. At this point, dieting becomes very difficult.

To help simplify, thumb through the following diet wise articles that will clarify how food should be viewed on any diet plan (actually when dieting or not dieting).


Much emphasis is placed on activity and weight loss. Adding physical activity to your diet not only strengthens and tones your body during the weight loss process, the dieter will lose more weight.

You know the routine by now - warm up a few minutes before heading off to exercise, then take a few minutes to do a cool down. Be sure to have necessary H2O in sight. Click below for information related to exercise, body toning and calorie burns.

Facts About Ostrich Eggs

Remember the old Tarzan movies? One of my favorite parts of the movie was watching Jane crack open those huge ostrich eggs. The following is some fun information on ostrich eggs - in honor of Jane's cookery, of course!

1 ostrich egg is equivalent to about 2 dozen chicken eggs & weighs about 3 pounds! That's about the size of a medium-sized melon or head of cabbage! That's a lot of yolks!

One ostrich egg contains about 2,000 calories and is packed with protein. (no kidding)

1 ostrich egg would take you about 40 minutes to hard boil!

An ostrich weighs from 300 - 400 pounds and lives up to 60 years. Babies grow about 1 foot per year.

Adults stand at about 8 feet tall with males being a bit taller than the females. The neck accounts for nearly half of the ostrich's height!

The male ostrich is called a rooster and makes a noise that sounds like a BIG boom!

The females are called hens. Laying season generally beings in the middle of March and ends in the middle of August. During this time, the female will lay 1 egg every two days.

The ostrich can run up to 40 mph, just a tab faster than a Geo!

Ostrich meat is red and contains less cholesterol than beef, skinned chicken & skinned turkey!

The eyes of an ostrich are 2 times larger than its brain. That brain? Well, it weighs about the same as the egg it lays.

Fried Foods & Dieting

Foods in their natural states tend to be low in calories. It's not until we dip them in batter, butter, sugar and oil that the calorie count shoots to sometimes astronomical levels.

Establishing Your Diet Game Plan

The greatest impact on the numbers on your weight loss scales does not come from exercise. Your weight loss scales will be most effected by the types and amounts of the foods that you eat each day. Each bite, each tidbit, each morsel of food contains calories.

In many of the other sections at the Diet Jungle, an emphasis has been placed on exercise because it works with your diet in creating 'The Most-Fit You'.
