"Curvy women are real women. Skinny women are real women. Women who have had boob jobs or lip enhancements or liposuction are still real women. Size 0 may make no sense mathematically, but a woman who wears that size is as real as the one who wears a size 16. What makes us “real” people is not the shape of our flesh but our basic humanity. And we lose our humanity when we judge – not when we lose weight, gain weight, or make the intensely personal decision to undergo cosmetic surgery."Hugo Schwyzer

Liqueur: Small but Potent
Sometimes the words "cordial" and "liqueur" are used interchangeably since both drinks are flavored, very sweet and often served as (or with) dessert. Liqueurs can be served alone, over ice, with coffee, or mixed with cream or other mixers. Adding mixers will increase the calorie and fat content of your drink. Whether served alone or in a cocktail, one liqueur serving is about 1.5 ounces. While tasty, liqueurs pack the most calories per ounce, so enjoy them sparingly.
Here is the nutritional information for common liqueurs, per one-ounce serving:
|Liqueur||Calories||Carbs||Per 1.5-oz Serving|
|Chocolate Liqueur||103||11 g||155 calories, 17 g carbs|
|Mint Liqueur||103||11 g||155 calories, 17 g carbs|
|Peppermint Liqueur||103||11 g||155 calories, 17 g carbs|
|Strawberry Liqueur||103||11 g||155 calories, 17 g carbs|
After an intense workout, what nutrient does your body need most?
ExplanationCarbohydrates. Roughly 60% of the calories you eat at this time should come from carbohydrates. Contrary to popular belief, your body needs more carbohydrates than protein after a workout, to replace the muscle fuel (glycogen) you used up and to prepare for your next exercise session. Moderate exercisers need about 30-40 grams of carbohydrates after an hour of exercise, but high-intensity exercisers need more—around 50-60 grams for each hour they exercised.
How big is ONE serving of COOKED grains (oats, rice, pasta, etc.)?
