Nutrition Tips?

I always take nutrition tips with a grain of salt. Some of them are indeed valid. Others are a little hinky, because studies show this 'could' benefit you. Here were a couple of interesting ones that yahoo took from a Men's Health magazine.

" Drink a second cup of coffee. It might lower your risk of adult-onset diabetes, according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition."

 "Keep serving dishes off the table. Researchers have found that when people are served individual plates, as opposed to empty plates with a platter of food in the middle of the table, they eat up to 35 percent less!"

 "Eat protein at every meal. Dieters who eat the most protein tend to lose more weight while feeling less deprived than those who eat the least protein. It appears that protein is the best nutrient for jumpstarting your metabolism, squashing your appetite, and helping you eat less at subsequent meals."
