I think there is in the world a person who does not like ice cream, exaggerated right? rs ... 😉

The truth is that ice cream is very good at any time of day, and even more in these days of summer heat is 24 hours, ice cream is a food that refreshes, quick and easy to eat, and the price is usually quite honest .

... But not everything is perfect, the ice cream of the problem is that it is a well-calorie food, and if you want to keep fit can not exaggerate and ice cream all day.

And so I will talk about the Diletto, a century-old brand that brings to Brazil the Ice Cream Gourmet, with very low calorie and an incomparable flavor ... I've tried the Chocolate flavors, Yogurt with Lemon, Coconut and Pistachio, and I was a fan of the brand.

Whenever I see the bear (brand logo) in any bakery, restaurant end up buying an ice cream.

The Diletto offers 12 flavors to the public, all made with selected products from various parts of the world, resulting in exceptional gelatos and sorbets gourmet unpublished in Brazil. The company currently has over 600 outlets in 11 Brazilian states and the Federal District.

#ficaadica, and who want to know more about the company and the ice cream visit and also has the official twittergelatodiletto

This Christmas I was curious to know what a Chester're a chicken modified in the laboratory? A chicken who takes anabolic? A chicken Obese?

I researched and found these pages here below:

"Both the Fiesta as Chester ® are birds, very similar to chicken derived special lines crosses with the aim of obtaining a product having higher levels of protein and lower fat, and concentrate 70% of its meat chest and thighs, on average common chicken has 45% in these parts. Genetic improvement allows from breeding matrices to obtain a product with desired characteristics, that is what these birds are rich in noble meats and ideal weight for the profile of Brazilian consumers.

Let's compare some data on the Chester ®, the Fiesta and a common chicken:

Nutritional information
(Approximate values ​​for 100g of product)
Common chicken Chester Fiesta
Calorie (kcal) 200 166 170
Carbohydrate (g) 0 1 0
Protein (g) 17 17 16
Total Fat (g) 15 11 12

Generally the nutritional values ​​of the common chicken is greater, it is more fat provides more calories while Chester ® and Fiesta are fewer calories and less fat, and although all three show very similar levels of protein. The difference between them lies in the fact that in two special chickens, they are not dispersed as in common, but concentrated in the chest and thigh, and the customer's taste!

And the customer is demanding. Knowing that Sadia offers in addition to the entire Fiesta, Fiesta breast stuffed with sausage and tender Fiesta, however Perdigão created a line of over 20 products derived from Chester: sausages, pizzas, lasagna, meatballs, as well as parts of variations, like smoked or cooked breast.

It is no coincidence that companies are committed to producing a range of products to chicken base, especially the sayings of convenience, as this is one of the reasons that lead to the second type of meat most consumed in the world, behind only swine. Other aspects that favor the good performance are its relatively low price.

The production of chicken has accompanied this increase in consumption, to give you an idea, in the 30s, the average time of slaughter a chicken was 105 days and their average weight, 1.50 kg. In the 70s, it went to 56 days and 1.70 kg and in 90 years, 45 days and 2,25kg. Increased production and consumption of chicken should be the improvement of health, nutrition and development of genetic techniques, and the Chester ® and the Fiesta examples. "

Chocolate is a source of tryptophan, theobromine (which has a stimulating effect) and magnesium (which improves mood), and aid in relaxation. Several studies show that magnesium helps relieve the symptoms of stress and bad mood, especially in women in the premenstrual phase. The ideal is not to consume more than 30 mg a day and prefer versions with 70% cocoa

Full of vitamin B6, tryptophan and magnesium, bananas provide energy and thanks to carbohydrates, potassium, magnesium and the biotin, food helps to decrease anxiety and increase good mood because it stimulates the body to produce serotonin. The pyridoxine (vitamin B6), also present in fruit, operates in the metabolic reactions of amino acids and proteins such as serotonin helping to prevent depression, anxiety and irritation

The coffee alleviates symptoms of depression by the action of caffeine in the limbic system but large doses can adversely affect mood, besides increasing the pressure and adrenaline. The recommended do you consume on average three cups a day (300mg of caffeine)

It's been a few years that creatine was forbidden to be sold in Brazil, and today I got the news that ANVISA (National Health Surveillance Agency) approved the use of creatine for athletes.

The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) announced on Tuesday (27) new rules for food of athletes who, among other things, releases the sale of creatine and caffeine supplements in the country. Until the issue of the new ordinance, to be published until next Monday (3), these substances were sold illegally to high-yield activities.


I am an advocate of creatine, I used this supplement for years and had great positive results and some negative.


  • Increases in lean body mass, strength, mood, setting.


  • Kidney stone

Of course, the positive results were not only effects of creatine, there is that lot of factors that need to follow to achieve the perfect body.

Anyway, I was happy with the release of the marketing of creatine, this year it will again make use of this supplement associated protein, I promise to publish here my results from before and after, and prepare as if I have the same results I had in the past and they will be significant and will motivate many people to ingest this supplement.

But here I am telling my personal experience, each body reacts in a way, always advise looking for a doctor / nutritionist to have the correct orientation.
