HELPFUL FOOD & CALORIE SUGGESTIONS

Meats: The following meats are low in fat and have approximately 120-150 calories, per

3 ounce serving.

Fish

Lean roast beef

Lean ham

Lean ground beef - (Rinse ground beef to reduce the fat content)

Skinless, white chicken

Skinless, white turkey

Water-packed tuna

When cooking meat, it should be broiled, baked, or grilled to keep the fat content to a

minimum. Choosing leaner cuts of meat will help in keeping the fat content low.

Breads: The following breads have approximately 50-100 calories per serving.

1 biscuit 5 saltine cracker squares

1 slice bread 1-6" corn tortilla

½ English muffin 1-4" pancake

½ hamburger or hot dog bun 1-4" waffle

1 dinner roll

Adding butter, mayonnaise, or margarine greatly increases the calorie content.

Honey, jam, or low-fat peanut butter are a better choice.

Calorie content of various spreads:

Butter (hard) - 34 calories per teaspoon Margarine - 34 calories per teaspoon

Butter (whipped) - 27 calories per teaspoon Mayonnaise - 33 calories per teaspoon

Catsup - 10 calories per teaspoon Mustard - 4 calories per teaspoon

Honey - 21 calories per teaspoon Peanut butter - 31 calories per teaspoon

Jelly/jam - 17 calories per teaspoon

 

Fruits and vegetables vary greatly in calories, but they are all low in calories compared

to most other foods. They are also fat free, with the exception of avocados, unless they

are topped with margarine, butter, or high calorie dressings. They are very high in

nutrients.

HEALTHY CHOICES WHEN EATING OUT:

Baked potato with low-fat toppings

Bean or chicken burrito

Cheese or vegetable pizza

Chicken sandwich, with low-fat mayonnaise, barbecue sauce, or honey mustard

10 Commandments for Parents of Wrestlers

Posted by Rudy Martinez Jr at Jul 29, 2013 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

1. You should be sure that your child knows that – win or lose, scared or heroic – you love him/her, appreciate his/her efforts and that you are not disappointed in him/her.  

2. You should try your best to be completely honest about your child’s athletic capability, his/her competitive attitude, his/her sportsmanship – and his/her actual skill level.  

3. You should be helpful – but don’t coach him/her on the way to practice and competition – or on the way back home.

4. You should teach your child to enjoy competition for competition’s sake, remembering that there are lessons to be learned in winning as well as in losing.

5. You should not try to relive your athletic life through your child or try to create an athletic career to replace the one that you never had.

6. You should not compete with the coach – remember, in many cases, the coach becomes a hero to the athletes, a person who can do no wrong.

7. You should not compare the skill, courage or attitudes of your child with that of other members of the squad or team – at least not in his/her hearing.

8. You should get to know the coach so that you can be sure that his/her philosophy, attitudes, ethics and knowledge are such that you are happy to expose your child to him/her.

9. You should always remember that children tend to exaggerate, both when praised and when criticized. Temper your reactions when they bring home tales of woe or tales of heroics.

10. You should make a point of understanding courage and the fact that it is relative. Some of us climb mountains but fear flight – some of us will want to fight but turn to jelly if a spider crawls nearby. A child must learn: courage is not absence of fear, but rather doing something in spite of fear.
