. . . At Ibronto, Mayor
Croll will give the people the
same sterling representation
he has given them as chief
magistrate of this city. He can
be depended upon 24 hours of
the day to battle for the rights
of his district and of humani-

Good nutrition for your heart

(AHA) points out that sound nutrition
habits can contribute to good heart
The human body requires a certain
amount of food each day to carry out
normal physical activities. The food we
eat is metabolized by the body and be-
comes a sort of energy fuel. Food energy
is measured in units called kilocalories

Police Fight
Road Deaths

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel,
with the world's highest per-
capita rate of traffic
fatalities, will establish a
special National Traffic
Police unit to try to reduce
carnage on the highways,
which has taken more lives
than all of the wars since the
country's founding.
The new unit will begin
-operations on Aug. 1 for a
21-month trial period, Fi-
nance Minister Yitzhak
Moda'i announced at a news
conference. He said $17 mill-
ion from the transportation
and police budgets has been
allocated for the experiment.
It is "a relatively small
sum in view of the impor-
tance of saving lives," Mr.
Moda'i said.
Police Inspector-General
Ya'acov Terner said 150 spe-
cially trained traffic police
officers will be assigned to
the new unit. With 30 patrol
cars, 20 motorcycles and two
helicopters, they will enforce
traffic regulations.

If the body burns up more calories
than are eaten, the result will be weight
loss. Conversely, if a person eats more
calories than they burn off in physical
activity, the extra calories are stored in
the form of fat. Approximately 3,500 ex-

cess calories will result in one pound of
fat. If a person habitually consumes
more food than their body burns they
will become overweight.
As an example, if a person requires
2,300 calories per day to maintain their
ideal weight, and if they consume 2,550
each day, and do not increase their
physical activity, they could add one
pound to their body weight in two
weeks. This eating pattern, coupled with
no change in exercise routine, continued
throughout a year could result in a
weight gain of approximately 25 pounds.
Being overweight puts an extra strain
on the heart. The heart of a very over-
weight (obese) person works almost
twice as hard as the heart of a slender
person. According to the AHA, over-
weight people tend to develop high
blood pressure more readily than people
of ideal weight. They frequently have a
more elevated blood cholesterol level.
And they are also more prone toward
developing diabetes, a disease caused by
the body's inability to use sugar
A person who wants to lose weight,
particularly if he or she thinks he needs
to lose more than 10 pounds, should
consult a physician before beginning a
weight reduction program. The physi-
cian will evaluate the person's overall
health, and make recommendations for
a sensible diet. The doctor might suggest
that a patient consult a dietitian for
more specific advice or long-term nutri-
tion counseling and assessment.
On a nutritionally sound diet, weight
loss will usually be slow but steady. The
AHA recommends that no more than
two to three pounds be lost each week.
This regulated weight loss allows the
body to adjust, and the dieter will find
they can more effectively incorporate
good eating habits into their life-style.
It's important to remember that once
ideal weight is reached, a person should
continue to eat a wholesome, balanced
diet to maintain their weight.
The American Heart Association offers
an assortment of materials on diet and
weight loss.
