HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD Don't be "fooled" by weigt,t-loss myths Submitted by TOPS/Milwaukee, Wl April Fool's Day may be synonymous with pranks and practical jokes, but members of TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the nonprofit weight- loss support organization, know better than to be fooled when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. Ahmed Kissebah, M.D., Ph.D., director of the General Clinical Research Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and medical advisor for TOPS, offers the following information to dispel common weight-loss myths, separating fact from fiction. Myth #1 - Eating grapefruit burns fat. Dozens of diets based on eat- ing large quantities of grapefruit claim that grapefruit, grapefruit juices, or concentrates in the form of a pill, contain enzymes that help digest fats and then burn them away. There are no enzymes in grapefruit that are known to increase the speed or the quan- tity at which the body burns fat. In fact, there is no, food that can cause fat to be burned away. Adding grapefruit to a weight-control plan can be a good idea, since grapefruit has very few calories and creates a sensation of fullness. But there is nothing in grapefruit that will suppress appetite or cause calo- ries to be burned faster. Crash diets that sometimes recommend eat- ing grapefruit and eggs, grapefruit and bacon and eggs, or other high-fat, high-protein foods, could have a serious side effect• These may cause an increase in blood levels of cholesterol, which can predispose a person to a high risk of heart disease. Myth #2 - Potatoes are ex- t'remely fattening. Potatoes have no fat and no cholesterol. They are high in fi- ber, vitamin C, some forms of vi- tamin B (niacin), and a good source of complex carbohydrates. A 5-ounce potato baked in its skin provides about 130 calories, no more calories than a serving of cottage cheese of the same weight, and 20% fewer calories than a serving of brown rice. Po- tatoes can, however, become a problem food when fried in oil or covered with butter, sour cream, or melted cheese. Like other high-carbohydrate foods, such as pasta and bread, it's not the po- tato that's fattening, it's what you put on it. Myth #3 - Eating before bedtime will make you gain !

It doesn't make a difference what time a person eats food, as- suming that they eat the same foods and maintain the same ac- tivity' levels during a 24-hour period. There is no evidenco that when food is consumed at night, more calories are stored in the body than when the same foods are eaten during the day. The calories you eat at night will be burned when needed by the body. If, however, you eat at night as an add-on to your normal meals; you will gain weight. Myth #4 - Your stomach will shrink if you eat less food. When a person eats enor- mous amounts of food, the stom- ach can expand• However, once the stomach empties, it returns {o its normal size. If a person re- duces calorie intake for several days, the appetite level drops, but this has nothing to do with the size of the stomach. The stomach cannot shrink, no matter how little food you eat. The only way to physically de- crease the size of the stomach with the goal of interfe:ing with food consumption is through gastric bypass surgery. In this procedure, the stomach is reduced to ap- proximately 1/8 of its normal size. Therefore, the person is com- pe!led to consume smaller meals. Myth #5 - Chewing celery helps burn calories. Celery - as well as iceberg lettuce and cucumbers - is nearly calorie-free because of its high water content. An 8-inch stalk of celery contains only six calories. Chewing Celery or anything else burns about the same amount of calories per minute• Although celery is very low in calories, chewing it will not cause excess calories to be burned any faster. Myth #6 - You have to give up all sweets in order to lose weight. The key to losing weight and keeping it off is to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits that you can stay with for a lifetime, a sensible method that TOPS en- dorses Including reasonable amounts of sweets in a weight- loss plan may help to ensure that the person contiques on the sen- sible plan for the long-term. Your desired weight goal can then be achieved and maintained. It's unrealistic to e3pe, ct that you will never et a plce ot" chocolate or a shc of cake. A craving for sweets has a chemical basis in the brain. When a person responds to these cravings by eat- ing a controlled amount, the brain normally responds by re- leasing increased amounts of the hormone serotonin, which can suppress hunger. The person feels satisfied and can, therefore, be in control of the amount of'sweets consumed. You also can mini- mize caloric intake by using food sweetened with artificial sweet- eners rather than real sugar, since taste buds can't distinguish be- tween those and true sugar. TOPS Club Inc.

This bridge will be replaced be- ginning March 15, 2010. In or- der to replace the bridge, the Glenwood Ranger District, Gila National Forest, will tempo- rarily close Whitewater Canyon and the Catwalk National Rec- reation Trail # 207 between the one half and three quarter mile markers, beginning this coming Monday until the construction project is completed. Due to the terrain and lo- cation of the bridge replacement in Whitewater Canyon, safe pas- sage will not be possible along the affected section of trail and canyon until the new bridge is fully constructed• The Forest" expects to have the bridge re- placement project completed by April 12 th, 2010. The Whitewater Picnic Area and the first 0.5 mile of the Catwalk Recreation Trail, including the entire accessible trail, will remain open for pub- lic use while the bridge replace- ment project is ongoing. For those wishing to ex- plore Whitewater Canyon above the closed section of trafl and canyon, access can be obtained from the Gold Dust Trail # 41.

The Gold Dust Trailhead is located on Whitewater Mesa and is ac- cessed from Bursum Road, N.M. State Highway 159. : For other recreation to tenjoy on the Glenwood Ranger District, Mineral Creek Trail (#201), accessed from Catron County Road C007 in • Alma, has excellent vistas of rock spires especially in spring- time. The trail, maintained in fall of 2009, provides access to the former mining town of Cooney. The trailhead is 16- cated about one quarter mile past the  Cooney's Tomb monumen.t. Due to the above average winter moisture, a good to ex- cellent spring flower season is expected. 'Areas at lower ele,a- tions and south facing slopes such as the Gold Dust Trail (#41) switchbacks, Little Whitewater Trail (#214); ihd She,ridan Gulch Trail (#18i") will be among the first to green up and show flower displays:.
