Did you make a New Year's Resolution? Maybe to try to lose those pounds gained during the holidays, or to spend more time with your family?
Let's see what help we can gain from the Internet on meeting our goals.
To Lose Weight:
As much as we realize that fast food and dieting don't go hand in hand, it's difficult
in this fast-paced world to keep out of fast food restaurants, which is where Fast Food
Facts, Interactive Food Finder, comes in. This site features nutritional information on
more than 1000 fast-food items. Plug in your favorite restaurant, your usual meal, and see
if it fits into your diet plan.
Now here's a wonderful site that's one of the best for diet information: Diet &
Weight Loss/Fitness Home Page. Read their weight loss tips, get help on starting your
diet, or learn why we eat when we're not hungry. Calculate your body mass, discover the
importance of drinking water, or learn a "powerful but spooky technique" for
losing unwanted pounds. The site will tell you how many calories will get burned per
minute for various activities.
To Stop Smoking:
At the Smoke Free Collection, you'll find a discussion forum and daily facts and tips
to help you give up the habit, such as: Barbecue your food - Not your lungs. You'll also
find information on diseases related to smoking, long-term effects of smoking, and what
happens to your body when you stop smoking.
Kids--To Do Their Homework:
Kids, maybe you can find some help with your homework at B.J. Pinchbeck's Homework
Helper. B.J. is a 10-year old from Pennsylvania who has compiled a listing of 430 sites to
help you find any information you need.
To Back Up Your Hard Drive Files:
I know, I know. It's a difficult thing to remember to do. But the first time you lose
the entire contents of your hard drive, you'll be so relieved that you took the time to
back up. Visit Computer CPR+ to learn healthy computer habits.
To Be a Better Parent:
Yes, we live in a fast-paced world, and sometimes we forget to spend time with the most
important people in our lives, our family members. At Parents Place.Com, you can
participate in chat sessions with other parents, or read articles about marriage and the
family. Visit the Reading Room for Q&A's from parenting professionals.
