Chewing the Calories

To gain weight these should be my caloric numbers...

The calories, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate and protein are customized to calorie distribution and are adjusted according to weight goal (gain or lose) Note: the lowest calorie recommendation is 1,200 calories per day.

Something to Do:

Food labels contain the amount of calories and nutrients per serving of food. To achieve weight goals, subtract the calories and grams of fat on the labels of food eaten from the calories and grams of fat in Your Nutrition Facts as a maximum recommended daily amount.

For foods not labeled, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, the calories and grams of fat are low as long as you don’t add fat or deep fry these nutritious foods., Joanne Larsen, MS RD LD

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
