Although fat is twice as kilojoule-dense as carbohydrates and protein, it’s brainless to avoid it altogether because you’ll just want to eat a whole horse, saddle and all. Fats keep you fuller for longer because they stop your stomach from emptying too quickly. Your body must get some fats to function properly. About a third of our kilojoule intake should come from fat. Too little fat in the diet can result in dry skin, wounds not healing properly, reduced immunity function and vitamin deficiencies. Plant fats (found in olive oil, nuts and avocados) and omega-3 fats (from oily fish like sardines, mackerel and salmon) are good sources of essential fats. There’s even evidence suggesting that omega-3s can help with weight loss.
The real reason people quit their businesses is that they cannot stand hearing the word “No.” And they will hear “No” more than any other word in the language (no matter what language they’re speaking).
When you clear the main course, offer desert, coffee and cordials. Again, be specific by describing your favorite desert briefly but in detail. Also, know your audience. If your guests are a family with small children, desert is almost a guaranteed sell and the parents may enjoy an after-dinner cordial, glass of wine or coffee while the kids destroy the cake and ice cream. Again, knowledge of your bar items is a must because if somebody asks for a glass of port or a liqueur such as Sambuca, you should know whether or not your restaurant carries it. Also, you can’t recommend it if you don’t know that you have it!
Children of course look forward to gifts at their own party, but if you think your child can handle what you going to suggest by way of presents, then explain to her what you are going to do. Ask the child if he or she feel comfortable about ‘sharing’ the gift with unfortunate people. It is difficult to suggest to the child to give all the presents away, so the idea is to ‘share’ with others. You would include on the invite your child’s intention to share, so request a gift that costs only half the amount that was initially decided by the parent who is giving the gift but he has to buy a matching gift for charity. Insist that parents only spend the amount of money on the two gifts as they would have spend on one. That way no parent feels compelled to spend more than they feel comfortable with.
“No”, sucks the excitement and enthusiasm out of your most promising prospects. It destroys new distributors faster than a ,219.00 monthly PV qualification. “No” is Public Enemy #1 in the previously undetected world-wide conspiracy to render 90 percent of all network marketing hopefuls, loser-quitter-failures who drop out before payday.
Don’t buy comfort foods. If you don’t have junk food in your house it is easier to avoid it. If someone brings it for a party make sure someone else takes it home. Stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables.
We all know clowns are a party favorite with the smaller kids. Kids love playing pretend and a birthday party is the perfect place to do it. You can even hire people to come to the party as a fairytale character complete with costumes, dress-up items for the kids and, of course, magic wands.
Then you’ve got your vegetarian bunch: a random smattering of eggs-but-no chicken, milk-but-no-beef, fish-but-no-other-meat-with-a-face (as if fish don’t have faces!); fish-AND-chicken-but-no-other-meat-with-a-face. I do wish they’d MAKE UP THEIR Minds!
