kewl question #1:
Help! I know I’m supposed to exercise, but I don’t belong to a gym. What can I do
to get started on my own?
-Derek from Wisconsin
kewl answer #1:
It’s awesome that you want to exercise! There are so many
choices that are easily available on your own! Here are some ideas!
- Walking: Lace up and get out! I always bring music with me–it gets my mind off of every step I’m taking and helps pass the time! Check out some of my favorite songs on the playlist in the kitchen here at KewlBites.com! They might motivate you too!
- Activity: Do you like to play basketball or tennis? Pick an activity you have fun with & call a friend to join you! It’s a great way to see your friends and play a game you enjoy!
Take it one step at a time and let me know how it goes!
kewl question #2:
MOVIE SNACK MELTDOWN! I love going to the movies and I love
eating the snacks but most of them are SUPER-sized. Do you have any ideas for how I can snack safely as opposed to SUPER-sizing?

kewl answer #2:
The smell of movie theatre popcorn is crazy yummy! And all of those tempting snacks sitting in the concession stand window… ugh…
It’s hard to combat a meltdown (I get them too!) from the minute you walk in, leading you to the snack counter filled with anything but kewl choices!
My Guide to Meltdown Resistance
I avoid the path to the scary snack counter at all costs. I bring my own snacks!
- I pop my own microwave popcorn at home (100-Calorie serving)
- I bring a handful of almonds and dried cranberries

kewl question #3:
I get home from school and I’m starving! I can’t eat enough to fill me
up so I am grabbing at everything. I raid the fridge and the pantry for anything I can find.
What can I do to help myself so I am not gorging all afternoon?

I’ve been there myself a million times!
It feels like your stomach is an empty pit & you can’t seem to satisfy it.
Now, I try not to go more than 2-3 hours without a snack. I avoid getting to the
starving point before eating something.
Here’s what I suggest:
- If you had lunch at school midday, pack a snack in your backpack like sliced carrots and celery that will take the edge off the feeling of starvation.
- When you get home, choose a snack that has protein. For me, string cheese and whole-wheat crackers work really well!
Remember to plan the snack the night before so you don’t forget to take it to
school with you!
