Cheap Eats in Toronto

Cheap Eats in Toronto | Health Care | Scoop.it
This is your guide on where to find the best cheap eats that Toronto has to offer.
Francois Marry's insight:

It’s back to school time, and that means plenty of teens and twenty-somethings have arrived in Toronto for the first time, ready to start their post-secondary career. Getting to class on time and finding the right textbooks is on you, but how to have an (affordable) good time in the city is something we can handle! Check out our selection of near-campus hangouts, student discounts and more ways to make the most of your time in the city.

If you’re a student, the phrase “back to school” can be cringe-worthy. But being in school isn’t all bad. Tons of perks and discounts at the city’s most popular attractions are at your fingertips. We’ve compiled a list of Toronto attractions that slash prices for students.
 
ROM
Catch the ROM’s favourite displays, including dinosaurs, mammals, the cultures of South and Central Asia, Africa, American continents and the Asia-Pacific region, along with international textiles and costumes. Students with ID can get in for $14.50. General admission to the museum is free every Tuesday for students attending a post-secondary institution with student ID. Half-price admission remains on Fridays, from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., for general admission only.
 
CN Tower
Check out Toronto’s tallest and most defining landmarks. Summon your courage and walk across the 113-story glass floor, or take the two-and-a-half inch glass elevator 342 meters in the air. When students present their International Student Identity Card, Hostelling International Card, or International Student Exchange card, they receive a 15 percent discount on the adult ticket price for the Observation Experience, including the Look Out and Glass Floor.
 
AGO
The AGO features an open layout with floor to ceiling glass windows with magnificent views of the city. More than 5,000 works of art are complemented by natural light and cherry wood. Full-time students with a valid ID pay $11, and if you have no spare cash, Wednesday nights are free between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
 
Ontario Science Centre
Making science fun and accessible for forty years, the Ontario Science Centre continues to be one of Canada’s most visited attractions. With its cool exhibits and educational IMAX films, the centre is a great place to visit at any age. Students with valid ID pay $16 for admission.
 
Bata Shoe Museum
No need to be a shoe-a-holic to find this attraction interesting. The museum contains a variety of collections including moccasin’s worn by North American Indigenous people, pumps representing every age of Western fashion, footwear from every corner of the world and even gear from the ‘Walk of Fame’ worn by everyone from John Lennon and Marilyn Monroe to Donovan Bailey and Pablo Picasso. Students with ID get in for $8, plus admission is pay-what-you-can (suggested donation: $5) every Thursday between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
 
Royal Botanical Gardens
Get off the concrete and embrace Mother Nature. The Royal Botanical Gardens, with its flowering plants, hedges, roses, magnolias and abundant wildlife provide much needed horticultural therapy. Students and youth get in for $10.50.
 
Textile Museum of Canada
Since 1975, this unique museum displays exhibits that are dedicated to promoting the trade and importance of the textile arts throughout the world. Not only are fabric swatches, quilts, garments carpets, ceremonial objects and artist’s workmanships on display, but the museum gives insight into other cultures and personal perspectives. Students pay $6.
 
Centre Island
Toronto’s Islands serve as a staycation for many Torontonians. It’s just a ferry ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and a perfect place to visit during those hot, late summer months. Nestled between Ward’s Island and Hanlan’s Point, there’s lots to do and see. Students under 19 get a discount off the ferry ride with student ID. Admission to the Island is free.
 
St. Lawrence Market
This 19th Century brick building is home to several dozen meats and deli stands, produce shops and fish stands, and is one of the city’s largest markets. Urban shoppers have access to a large abundance of gourmet foods, cheese and dairy products, dry goods and organic health foods. Throughout the year, the market hosts various free events including Woofstock, the largest festival for dogs. It’s free to visit, but chances are you won’t leave without a little something.
 
The Distillery District
This national historic site is very popular among Torontonians who enjoy the arts. The Distillery is home to galleries, theatres, restaurants, cafes and boutique retailers. Ambience is free, but if something catches your eye, you may need to doll out some cash.
 
Black Creek Pioneer Village
Step back into 19th century Ontario with Black Creek Village’s restored homes, workshops, public buildings, and farms. Students get $1 off the $15 general admission ticket.
 
Museum of Inuit Art
The museum is dedicated to Canada’s most celebrated artistic achievements, known as Inuit Art. The space is home to a large display of prehistoric art, early post-contact art and early works of the modernist period. Students get in for $3.
 
Toronto Aerospace Museum
The Aerospace Museum presents the history of local aviation and aerospace with collections, exhibits, artefacts and technology. As a local participant in co-operative education, the museum gives kids hands-on experience in technical training, aviation programs, industries and schools. Students get in for $5.
 
Kensington Market
With its colourful street art, fresh produce, thrift stores and eateries, Kensington Market is a meeting place for people from all walks of life. One Sunday every month, the streets are blocked off for a day of drums, dance and music. It doesn’t cost a thing to tour around this truly unique Toronto neighbourhood.
 
Allan Gardens
These beautiful botanical gardens serve as a peaceful escape year-round, featuring six greenhouses with more than 16,000 square feet of vibrant seasonal pants. Admission is free.

Top 3 Exercise Machine Myths the Media is Hiding From You

Top 3 Exercise Machine Myths the Media is Hiding From You | Health Care | Scoop.it

Body shaping is a hot topic, especially in recent years, due to more people being overweight now than ever. Being in great shape is not only attractive to others, but also makes a person feel good about themselves, gives them more energy and confidence in themselves.

Mass media plays a big part in developing myths around body shaping. They focus on selling their exercise machines to people who want to look and feel better. By advertising various machines to the public, stressing their methods of increasing muscle tone and healthier lifestyles, their claim to fame comes from the actors, movie stars and athletes who are paid handsomely to make the public believe the machine they are selling put them in their current shape.

Instead of seeking the truth, eager consumers buy the machines in hopes of developing the muscle-bound bodies that are portrayed in the commercials. To get the body of your life, you need to know some facts about three of the primary myths behind these theories.

Myth #1 - Many of the machines and exercise advertisements on TV really work as advertised, endorsed by movie stars and professional athletes.

Facts: This is very important. If you see any exercise machine advertised on T.V., or anywhere for that matter, that uses resistance created from some type of bow, gas piston, air shocks, rubber bands, springs, electric shock, magnetic resistance, negative leverage arms or rams, they are merely creating isometric tension resistance, and NOT pure gravitational resistance. These two types of resistance are completely different physiological forms of resistance in feel, action and results. Isometric tension, which all of the above mentioned exercise machine types create, is no different than placing one hand against the other and pressing, while varying your pressure. This form of resistance is your WORST ENEMY in body transforming. It is a deceiver. It will never give you anywhere near the amazing results of pure continuous resistance created by gravity and iron. You need some form of free iron weights or an extremely high quality cable and iron weight stack machine, which is basically free weights, which gives you pure continuous iron resistance from gravity to make your best gains. This type of resistance is your BEST FRIEND in body transformation. Most exercise equipment you see on T.V. is just a sales gimmick!

Myth #2 - The individuals advertising exercise machines on TV really used the machines to achieve the results they show.

Facts: Most are simply hired models paid to endorse the product even if it had nothing to do with the way they look; even if they’ve never used the product. If you’ll notice the fine print, the commercial actually has to disclose this.

Myth #3 - Some people created their championship physiques using isometric tension, variable resistance exercise machines.

Facts: There has never been a physique champion (male or female) made from using any of these isometric tension, variable resistance machines. All physique champions have used some form of pure gravitational weight resistance. Notice that you will NEVER see a bowflex in a professional gym!

Editorial Review - About the Author

After many years of incorrect, misleading and downright intentionally false information regarding body transformation, Liberty has begun to set the record straight. The mass marketers are merely interested in financial gain. They don't care if the exercise program or piece of equipment they are marketing really works; only that it sells!

This book dispels the lies and establishes truth; with over 101 myths. As you read this book, it will resound truth and light within you. This is a must read for anyone!

This book will do for you what no other training or exercise book will do. It will show you the "Laws of Nature" as related to training programs and exercise equipment, so that you will never again be ripped off, conned, cheated or deceived by scams relating to body transformation!

"Liberty"Blake Hancock was a 6 ft. tall, 98 lb. wrestler in high school when he began his seemingly impossible body transformation quest. Today he has almost 40 years of experience with physique transformation training.

Realizing that the mind transformation must come before the body, Liberty worked with a Master Certified Hypnotherapist for over five years, researching and developing a process for positively transforming the mind. As a result of many more years of refining and perfecting this unique mind transformation process, Liberty is ready to introduce these proven, life-changing processes to the world.

He is the author of The Art of Positive Transformation of the Mind. To complement this book, Liberty wrote and recorded a Dream Body Life self-hypnosis CD. Liberty also wrote the book, The Art of Positive Transformation of the Body, which includes the Dream Body Fat Burn Perfection diet. Liberty finished addressing fundamental principles of body transformation with his book, Body Transformation Myths and Deceptions FINALLY EXPOSED!, for men and women of all ages.

By utilizing his own program, Liberty became the Mr. Utah Masters Champion at age 45. He was featured in an article in the October 2001 issue of Muscle Mag International Magazine, titled Heavenly Transformation. Liberty successfully trained his sister, Cheryl Brown, to win the Mrs. Utah Women’s Masters Champion and eventually become Mrs. Utah overall body building champion.

Sandy Hancock was also trained by Liberty, winning the Mrs. Utah Masters Figure Champion and overall Mrs. Utah Figure Champion. Liberty also trained Tali Peterson and Holly Dolgerackis, who both won figure championships. Liberty has successfully trained, and continues to train countless other mind and body transformation enthusiasts.

Liberty trained one of the most notable competitors, Art Waller, in the Body for Life contest, who lost over 50 pounds of fat and gained over 25 pounds of muscle in just 12 weeks. Utilizing his own program, Liberty has been able to realize some additional goals and dreams.

He used his program to become a licensed real estate agent, licensed mortgage loan officer, amateur photographer, song-writer and singer, and author of his aforementioned books. Liberty was salesman of the year for Global Travel Network in 2007. Launching his Dream Body Life Transformations business is the realization of his biggest life-long dream.
