Keshi says countries waiting to hire him

Again, coach Stephen Keshi has said that he has several countries waiting to hire him should he be asked to quit by Nigeria. Keshi has come under heavy criticisms as his team have recorded a mere point from an available nine in the AFCON 2015 qualifiers. The former Eagles captain, who is on the job without a contract, told AfricanFootball.com , "It's not about the game, it's about other personal stuff. So, if tomorrow they say Keshi leave, there is no shaking because other two, three countries are waiting (for me). "My job is about hire and fire. "Right now I have been to other places I have coached before I have not been fired. If it comes down to Nigeria, I have been here before, qualified Nigeria for 2002 World Cup with Amodu Shaibu, we were asked to leave." Keshi has also handled Togo and Mali. And recently his agent claimed oil-rich Gabon, Angola and Equatorial Guinea have tabled offers for him. The Nigerian coach has said many times that he had offers

How to cut down on sugar in your diet

We Britons really do eat too much sugar: 700g of the sweet stuff a week – that's an average of 140 teaspoons per person. Our love affair with sugar can mean that many of us are getting too many calories, which is one of the causes behind our ever-expanding waistlines. Most of us could do with eating less sugar, particularly added sugar. But many habits, especially ones we like, are so hard to kick. Dietitian Alison Hornby says: "Identify the sources of sugar in your diet, and decide what to cut out completely and what to cut down on. "You don't need to cut down on sugars found in fruit or dairy products because these foods contain lots of nutrients that are good for us. "It's the food high in added sugar, such as fizzy drinks, which contain lots of calories but few other nutrients that we should be trying to consume less of." Added sugars shouldn't make up more than 10% of the energy (calorie intake) you get from food and drink each d

The facts about sugar

Most adults and children in the UK eat too much sugar. Cut down by eating fewer sugary foods, such as sweets, cakes and biscuits, and drinking fewer sugary soft drinks. Sugars occur naturally in foods such as fruit and milk, but we don't need to cut down on these types of sugars. Sugars are also added to a wide range of foods, such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, and some fizzy drinks and juice drinks. These are the sugary foods that we should cut down on. Why cut down on sugars? Evidence from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey shows that most adults and children eat more sugar than is recommended as part of a healthy balanced diet. Many foods that contain added sugars (and often have few other nutrients) are also high in energy, which is measured in either kilojoules (kJ) or calories (kcal). Eating these foods often can contribute to you becoming overweight. Being overweight can increase your risk of health conditions such as: heart disease type 2

9 Foods to Help You Lose Weight

Delicious foods that help you diet? It sounds too good to be true. No doubt: Weight loss comes down to simple math. You have to eat fewer calories than you burn. "Certain foods can help you shed body weight," says Heather Mangieri, RD, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, "because they help you feel full longer and help curb cravings." Some even kick up your metabolism. So take this list when you go to the supermarket: Continue reading below... 1. Beans Inexpensive, filling, and versatile, beans are a great source of protein . Beans are also high in fiber and slow to digest. That means you feel full longer, which may stop you from eating more. 2. Soup Start a meal with a cup of soup, and you may end up eating less. It doesn't matter if the soup is chunky or pureed, as long as it's broth-based. You want to keep the soup to 100 to 150 calories a serving. So skip the dollops of cream and butter. 3. Dark Chocolate Want to enjoy chocolate bet

Beyond Willpower: Diet Quality and Quantity Matter

It's no secret that the amount of calories people eat and drink has a direct impact on their weight: Consume the same number of calories that the body burns over time, and weight stays stable. Consume more than the body burns, weight goes up. Less, weight goes down. But what about the type of calories: Does it matter whether they come from specific nutrients—fat, protein, or carbohydrate? Specific foods—whole grains or potato chips? Specific diets—the Mediterranean diet or the "Twinkie" diet? And what about when or where people consume their calories: Does eating breakfast make it easier to control weight? Does eating at fast-food restaurants make it harder? There's ample research on foods and diet patterns that protect against heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. The good news is that many of the foods that help prevent disease also seem to help with weight control—foods like whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. And many of the food

Macronutrients and Weight: Do Carbs, Protein, or Fat Matter?

When people eat controlled diets in laboratory studies, the percentage of calories from fat, protein, and carbohydrate do not seem to matter for weight loss. In studies where people can freely choose what they eat, there may be some benefits to a higher protein, lower carbohydrate approach. For chronic disease prevention, though, the quality and food sources of these nutrients matters more than their relative quantity in the diet. And the latest research suggests that the same diet quality message applies for weight control. --   Would you like to be part of this segment?   OR   DO YOU WANT TO   DONATE   TO SUPPORT ,??
