The History Guy remembers the war over a slice of watermelon. It is history that deserves to be remembered.

The History Guy uses images that are in the Public Domain. As photographs of actual events are often not available, I will sometimes use photographs of similar events or objects for illustration.

When picking a watermelon from your local fruit and vegetable market the only decision you will need to make is the size. Many small markets only offer one type of watermelon. This has led us to believe that there is only one type although just like apples, watermelons come in a number of varieties.

Differentiating Between Watermelons
We tend to use five different terms to differentiate between watermelon varieties. These five terms refer to the characteristics of the melon rather than the direct variety. This allows us to combine multiple watermelon varieties under one category. The five terms used to describe watermelons are:

A Seeded watermelon –
Used to describe a basic watermelon that is round or oblong and weighs between 15 t0 45 pounds. These watermelons contains noticeable black seeds.

A Seedless Watermelon –
Hybrid watermelons that are the most popular due to their seedless nature. These watermelons are generally around the 15 pound mark. Seedless watermelons often have small and easily edible white seeds.

Some varieties of watermelon that fall into this category include:

Crimson
Bijou
Jack of Hearts
King of Hearts
Millionaire
Nova
Queen of Hearts
Trio
A Miniature Watermelon –
The smaller variety of watermelons that has a thin rind.

Watermelon varieties such as the Sugar Baby and the Tiger Baby fall under this category.

An Orange or Yellow Watermelon –
Varieties of watermelon that lack lycopene often fall under the orange or yellow watermelon category.

Some watermelon varieties that fall under this category include:

Desert King
Tender-gold
Yellow Baby
Yellow Doll..”

Diabetes – Watermelon Board watermelon.org
‘…Watermelon is a great inclusion in the diabetic diet. It is a source of vitamins, such as vitamins A and C; minerals, such as potassium; and fiber. It’s low in calories, since 92% of watermelon is just good-for-you water, so it’s a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth without overindulging in excess sugar and calories.

Granted, watermelon has a high glycemic index (GI) score of 72, but this natural, unprocessed fruit remains a healthful food because of another factor called the “glycemic load.” This factor compares a food’s GI score with the amount of calories and carbs in the food,. The glycemic load is a much better indicator of a food’s ability to prevent or contribute to disease, since a food that has a large amount of carbs AND dramatically raises blood sugar levels obviously increases the chances of weight gain more than a food that might temporarily raise blood sugar levels, but has few calories. For example, a potato has a high glycemic score and it packs a bunch of carbs, while watermelon has a high GI score, but few calories or carbs. The former will increase the chances of those extra calories being funneled into fat cells, but watermelon just fills you up, without filling you out. (Ever hear of anyone getting fat on watermelon? Not!)..”

Watermelon – The World’s Healthiest Foods whfoods.com

“..These cyclists were participating in 15.5-mile time trial on a mountainous course and they consumed about one quart of watermelon puree every 15 minutes while riding in the trial. (A control group of riders consumed a sports beverage containing a similar level of total carbs.) The researchers determined that the antioxidant capacity in the riders’ bloodstreams was significantly increased post-exercise through consumption of the watermelon puree. ..

between 3–6 cups of watermelon juice per day over a period of several weeks. What the researchers found was a steady and well-maintained level of citrulline in the bloodstream of the participants, yet an increased level of arginine. They concluded from these findings that citrulline from the watermelon juice had undergone conversion into arginine, while still leaving plenty of citrulline to stabilize blood levels in the study participants. This conversion provides us with even more evidence for watermelon as a fruit that can lower our risk of high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes since arginine deficiency—especially chronic moderate or temporarily serve deficiency—has been linked to increase risk of both health problems. ..”

Tasty Solutions for Diabetes Breakfast Menu part 1 – YouTube

What to Eat for Breakfast When You Have Diabetes By Debra Manzella, RN | Medically reviewed by Richard N. Fogoros, MD Updated April 27, 2018 verywellhealth.com
“..Studies have shown that eating a larger, higher fat and higher protein breakfast may actually help to reduce blood sugars and weight. The likely reason is that these types of breakfast choices are lower in carbohydrate. Some people with diabetes experience higher blood sugars in the morning because the liver breaks down sugar overnight and the cells can also be a bit more resistant to insulin at this time…

Also, studies have shown that blood sugars tend to rise after breakfast meals, two times higher than after lunch. High post prandial (after meal) blood sugars can result in carbohydrate cravings because, instead of using sugar for fuel, it is remaining in the blood stream and the body thinks it needs to eat sugar (or carbohydrates) to fuel itself. Another study found that healthy adults who consumed a standard 50 g carbohydrate (for example, 3/4 cup cereal with 1 cup milk and a 1/2 banana) meal had their highest peak glucose (sugar) after breakfast, lowest after lunch, and moderate after dinner.

Perhaps this is a good reason to try a lower carbohydrate breakfast. It’s worth a shot. So, ditch the bagels, cereal, muffins, and pancakes, and try one of these best breakfast picks.

Meat Spotlight: Chicken of All Sorts

Chicken, meat, Spotlight, Uncategorized

Which Part of the Chicken is the Healthiest to Eat and the Best Way to Cook It? By Holly Klamer, RD caloriesecrets.net
“..Even though chicken is shed in a positive light, keep in mind different parts of the chicken can vary nutritionally.

Wings and darker meat are higher in calories and fat compared to the leaner white chicken breast.

How you cook your chicken can also greatly vary the nutrition of chicken. Frying and leaving the skin on increase the energy density, but taking the skin off and roasting chicken can provide lower energy density…

Leanest part of the chicken

Skinless boneless chicken breast is considered the leanest part of the chicken. Buying bone in cuts of meat can be a cheaper option, and according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (2) eating bone in chicken doesn’t affect nutrition value and may actually help you eat smaller portions.

According to the National Chicken Council (3), a 3.5 ounce of skinless chicken breast provides about 165 calories from 31 grams of protein and about 3.5 grams of fat. Keeping the skin on the breast bumps the calories up to just under 200 calories.

Thigh meat without the skin provides just over 200 calories with higher fat content at about 11 grams. Leaving the skin on the thigh bumps the calories up to about 230 calories.

The highest calorie density cut of chicken is wings with the skin on. A 3.5 ounce serving provides about 290 calories and 19.5 grams of fat…”

Chicken and Cholesterol

The American Heart Association recommends you limit your cholesterol intake to 300 mg per day. If you have high cholesterol already, limit your cholesterol intake to 200 mg per day.

This is about 25 percent of your recommended cholesterol for the day…”

The Healthiest Way to Eat Chicken Marion Nestle Mar 23, 2012 theatlantic.com
“..A good source of protein, chicken is best for you when baked in the oven or stir fried with your favorite vegetables. Note that the dark meat has a bit more saturated fat and cholesterol…

Buy whole chickens so you aren’t paying someone else to cut it up for you. Cutting a chicken is easy and YouTube has plenty of videos that explain how to do it.

The cheapest chicken is industrially produced, meaning that the chickens are raised in huge flocks indoors under crowded conditions, treated with antibiotics to prevent illness and promote rapid growth, and are ready to slaughter six weeks after hatching.

If you don’t want to eat chicken raised this way, you should look for birds that were raised free-range without antibiotics and are Certified Organic, kosher, or halal — if you value such things. You will have to pay more for such meat but it will taste better. ..”

7 High-Cholesterol Foods to Avoid draxe.com
“..What High-Cholesterol Foods Should You Keep Eating?

1. Eggs

Although the majority of dietary cholesterol in the U.S. diet comes from eggs and egg mixed dishes, research shows that egg consumption has little effect on LDL cholesterol and may actually improve HDL cholesterol levels. (14)

In a 2008 study published in the Journal of Nutrition, 28 overweight or obese male participants aged 40–70 years were instructed to reduce calorie intake by consuming a low-carbohydrate diet, and they were randomly assigned to supplement this diet with three eggs per day (640 milligrams of cholesterol) or a cholesterol-free egg substitute, which was provided to them for 12 weeks. The intervention resulted in significant reductions in body weight. LDL and triglyceride concentrations were similar between the two intervention groups, but HDL cholesterol concentrations were higher in the egg-supplemented group. (15)

It turns out that there are plenty of health benefits of eggs, and they can be consumed without worry…

What Is High Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that’s found in all cells of the body. Our bodies need cholesterol to make hormones that protect the body, vitamin D and bile salts that are necessary for the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Plus, the brain and nervous system depend on cholesterol for the creation of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine.

Our bodies make the cholesterol that we need, but we get cholesterol from our food too. If you have too much cholesterol, it starts to build up in your arteries and may lead to atherosclerosis, or the hardening of the arteries. Eventually, high cholesterol levels may cause heart and blood flow problems, leading to dangerous blood clots and inflammation that can cause heart attacks and strokes. High cholesterol levels alone do not determine if you are at risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Other factors include your blood pressure, whether or not you smoke, whether or not you have diabetes, and your age, sex and race. (18)..”

“..At first glance, health-conscious folks may think that picking up a chicken sandwich from a fast food joint is a safe bet. After all, poultry is known to be leaner than the mystery beef served in those double-stacked hamburgers. But just because chicken holds a star reputation as the low-calorie, low-fat option on your dinner table, it doesn’t mean a chicken sandwich is your best option when dining out or zipping through the drive-thru. You think you’d be able to rely on this star protein, but once it’s injected with solutions of chemicals, preservatives, and additives and then coated, breaded, and deep fried, many of these chicken sandwiches can set you back just as badly as a burger and fries…”

How Many Calories Are in Thanksgiving Dinner?
A dish-by-dish guide to eating healthier—and lighter—this holiday

By Consumer Reports Last updated: November 20, 2017 consumerreports.org
“..According to the Calorie Control Council, Americans may consume more than 4,500 calories at their Thanksgiving dinner. The meal we created contains less than half that, yet still provides plenty of food. …

“Be mindful of how much you serve yourself,” says Maxine Siegel, R.D., who heads Consumer Reports’ food lab. “That way you can sample many foods without going overboard. But double or triple your portions—which is easy to do—and you could consume a sky-high number of calories.”

Depending on age, weight, and gender, most people should have somewhere between 1,600 and 2,800 calories daily. So at around 2,000 calories in our Thanksgiving dinner, even the CR spread has more than a daily allowance..”

Health Benefits of Thanksgiving Dinner Karen Borsari shape.com
“…Just 5oz of turkey provides half the recommended daily allowance of folic acid and 32g of protein.

A half-cup serving of sweet potatoes provides 330% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin A!…

..1/8th of a 9” pumpkin pie packs 4.2g of fiber and 288mg of potassium, which helps counteract the high levels of sodium in a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

“..So, what’s the best way to avoid overeating on Turkey Day and control your calorie count? Don’t skip breakfast, says Kathleen M. Zelman at WebMD. Although many people avoid eating to “save room” for the big feast, eating something small in the morning means you won’t be starving by the time the turkey is carved. It also helps to be aware of the foods that pack the most calories, and modify your portion size accordingly. If this is the year you’re finally going to keep your winter waistline in check, take a look at how your dinner plate breaks down nutritionally:..”

High Blood Pressure

Salt…in your pumpkin pie? Thanksgiving heightens sodium onslaught By LAURAN NEERGAARD Associated Press nseattletimes.com
“…Government guidelines set 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day as the safe upper limit. We don’t need that much: The Institute of Medicine says just 1,500 mg a day, a little less for older adults, is enough to regulate the body’s fluid balance, the mineral’s job…

Thanksgiving dinner alone can easily reach those limits: Stuffing can harbor up to 600 mg of sodium a serving, plus 300 for gravy. If you bought the salt-added turkey, plan on 490 mg. A biscuit can mean 350, although a dinner roll might have half that. Pumpkin pie doesn’t seem salty, but one popular brand has 300 mg a slice…
Thanksgiving feast loaded with salt: Reason for concern? cbsnews.com

“..If you do chose to cut back, Thayer, the dietitian, has some tips for Thanksgiving:

All bread contains sodium, but homemade cornbread for stuffing could cut a few hundred milligrams
Use low-sodium broth for the gravy, and choose low-sodium soups
Try onion, garlic and other herbs in place of salt. Lemon and citrus can stand in for salt in some foods
Check your spice bottles. Combination seasonings can contain salt.
Fresh or frozen vegetables have little if any sodium, unless you choose the frozen kind with sauce
People tend to heavily salt mashed potatoes while sweet potatoes contain very little sodium..”
