CHICAGO, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RightSize smoothies are ringing in the holidays with festive new smoothie recipes and tips on how to nibble and nosh one's way through the holiday season without adding extra pounds and inches.
Tempting foods seem to be everywhere, making the season a difficult time to count calories and avoid putting on that extra pound or two. The key to preventing overeating is to follow a party-smart eating plan, according to nutrition experts at RightSize (myrightsize.com), a leader in weight loss products.
"The goal should be to 'maintain, don't gain' over the holiday season," says Lynn Gunderson, Senior Product Developer at RightSize. "This is a more achievable goal than expecting to lose weight during the holidays. Best of all, if you can maintain your weight, it's still a 'win' that can make you feel positive about yourself and set you up for a strong start with your eating plan in the New Year."
Anyone can follow the "maintain, don't gain" eating plan to manage their holiday appetite. Substitute a RightSize smoothie for one or two meals on party day. If an evening gathering is on the calendar, have a smoothie for lunch a little later than usual. The smoothie is formulated to satisfy hunger and help curb one's appetite, making it easier to resist temptation later at the party.
RightSize meal replacement smoothies are made with a combination of nutrients to curb hunger and help with weight loss, including 15 grams of protein (when made with skim milk), 6 grams of fiber, over 20 essential vitamins and minerals, as well as natural ingredients such as green tea and ginger root extracts. RightSize smoothies have no added caffeine and are gluten-free.
Anyone can enjoy a smoothie, whether they're on a weight loss diet, eating to maintain their weight or just want a quick and delicious meal on the go. They taste like a rich and creamy shake and come in four flavors: Lean Cocoa Bean™, SkinniVanilli™, Slend-A-Berry™ and Leano Cappuccino™. RightSize products are available online at myrightsize.com and in select retail stores nationwide.
New RightSize holiday smoothie recipes also add a dash of fun to mealtime. From Pumpkin Spice Latte to Mint Mocha and Apple Pie, there's a smoothie for every taste. Here's a sample:

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
