Piranhas live in enormous packs, or shoals. They spend most of their time hunting for food.
Rivers are their primary habitat although, as a result of massive flooding, they may occasionally find
their way into lakes. But it is thought that they are unable to breed outside of rivers. Piranhas have
voracious appetites, and they seek river locations that have plentiful fish supplies. They are found
in any well-stocked river within their natural habitat.
The piranha hunts with speed and by surprise. The typical way in which the piranha attacks
is by swimming directly into a shoal of fish. The typical way in which the piranha attacks is by
swimming directly into a shoal of fish. The attacked shoal scatters in all directions, and the piranha
quickly overpowers individual fish. Small fish are swallowed whole. Larger prey have chunks ripped
out of them, which the piranha swallows instantly so it can immediately take another bite.

Grazing ? Thats right, grazing-- eating six or more small meals each day. This alternative
eating style may provide several benefits. Grazing can help to maintain a healthy weight, lower blood
cholesterol, and control blood sugar. This eating plan cal also help regulate appetite, increase metabolic
rate, and allow for better absorption of nutrients. Grazing also matches an active, on-the-go lifestyle.
Mini - meals are not snack eaten between larger meals. Instead they are a variety of small
portions eaten throughout the day. The real challenge with this eating style is eating enough servings
from each food group while not over-eating. Each mini-meal should be thought out and selected from
nutritious foods, just as you would with your other meals.
A few tips can help you master grazing. Keep each mini-meal about the same size to avoid
over-eating and yet satisfy your appetite. Appetiser-size portions in restaurants and at home are about
the right size for mini-meals. You dont have to plan six or more different little meals each day. You
could instead take the meals you eat now and divide them up throughout the day.
Grazing may not be for everyone. For some, frequent snacking could lead to overeating.
Obesity experts generally advise that overweight people not graze since it may promote mindless eating.
In addition, eating many times throughout the day may be inconvenient for some.
Remember that ultimately it is not how or when you eat that matters, but what you eat. The
most important thing is to choose an eating style that matches your personal needs and lifestyle and
helps you make the best food choices possible.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though :
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sounds the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
