7 Best Protein Sources for Losing Weight


Weight loss is one of the hottest topics in the Health and Fitness Industry. Those who are blessed with fame and money don’t bother spending huge money on costly products that stimulate weight loss hormones, while those who are still away from good fortune follow an affordable path to lose weight i.e. dieting. You might have read it before that eating only one meal a day doesn’t help losing weight, instead binge eating is considered a disorder that makes a person even more ill. You tell yourself you’re only going to have a small treat but then you can’t help yourself stop eating. In my opinion, the calorie count doesn’t matter, what matters is the type of food you choose for your 3-time meal. Yes! This is true. You can lose weight while maintaining your regular diet. The weight loss is not just about calories, but about how your body uses those calories. Eating enough protein-rich foods of low energy density [calories per portion] is a good strategy for losing considerable weight within a few days.

Another Great SHIP Activity

I visited Ms. Crosby’s class again last week.  Ms. Crosby and her 5th grade class keep me busy, being the class I visit the most often and I LOVE IT!!!  They are always excited to see me and have such a great time.

On this day, we were working on recognizing and differentiating between commutative, associative, distributive and identity properties.  The weather was great even though it was November so we were able to get outside!!

SPS, Suffolk Partnership and Target- Build-a-Bike

On Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, a group of volunteers from the Suffolk Fire Department- Station 3, Birdsong Peanuts, Western Tidewater Medical Reserve Corps, and a local antique car club gathered to help us give twelve bikes to deserving students at Booker T. Washington Elementary School.  The bicycles were donated through a grant from Target.  The students were surprised that morning over the announcements that they would be receiving the bikes.  The volunteers were teamed up with a student and together they built the bikes.  Once, completed the students were able to take their bicycles for a test drive but not before being fitted for a helmet.  Each student also received a free bicycle helmet through The Lynn A. Chiaverotti Memorial Fund.  The students were also fed lunch and recognized in front of all the volunteers.  It was a very rewarding day for all involved.
