  • AIP Travelling

    Escape from Obesity
    24 Jul 2014 | 9:40 pm
    Today I was on the road most of the day. I left after 11 am and got home around 8 pm. The past few times I've done this, I have just stopped along the way for food: first, an iced decaf Americano with sugar free chocolate syrup and cream. Then lunch might be a chef salad with turkey, ham, egg, cheese, and Ranch dressing on the side. In the afternoon I'd have a pack of almonds and another Americano to tide me over for dinner, which would be the usual lower-carb meat and veggies (baked chicken and broccoli, or steak and mixed steamed veggies). Being on AIP, a lot of the things I used to enjoy…

    This seems to be the new catch-phrase in my life lately. As much as I wanted it to be the answer, the Whole 30 didn't last long for me. I tried to even ease out of it into a Paleo-style way of eating. That hasn't seemed to work, either. I think it's the restriction. When I start restricting my mind goes crazy. Like a switch goes off and I have an insatiable urge for everything I'm supposed to

  • Strategy proposed for preventing diseases of aging

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:12 am
    Researchers argue that medicine focuses too much on fighting diseases individually instead of concentrating on interventions that prevent multiple chronic diseases and extend healthy lifespan. They call for moving forward with strategies that have been shown to delay aging in animals. In addition to promoting a healthy diet and regular exercise, these strategies include manipulating molecular pathways that slow aging and promote healthy longevity.
  • Brown fat protects against diabetes, obesity in humans

    23 Jul 2014 | 9:39 am
    People with higher levels of brown fat, or brown adipose tissue, in their bodies have better blood sugar control, higher insulin sensitivity and a better metabolism for burning fat stores, researchers have shown for the first time. The findings suggest that, because of the brown fat's ability to better regulate blood sugar, this could be a potential medical weapon against diabetes.
  • Therapeutic bacteria prevent obesity in mice, study finds

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:25 am
    A probiotic that prevents obesity could be on the horizon. Bacteria that produce a therapeutic compound in the gut inhibit weight gain, insulin resistance and other adverse effects of a high-fat diet in mice, investigators have discovered. Regulatory issues must be addressed before moving to human studies, but the findings suggest that it may be possible to manipulate the bacterial residents of the gut -- the gut microbiota -- to treat obesity and other chronic diseases.
  • High-salt diet doubles threat of cardiovascular disease in people with diabetes

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:25 am
    People with Type 2 diabetes who eat a diet high in salt face twice the risk of developing cardiovascular disease as those who consume less sodium, according to a new study. Diabetes occurs when there is too much sugar in the bloodstream. People develop Type 2 diabetes when their bodies become resistant to the hormone insulin, which carries sugar from the blood to cells.

    3 Fat Chicks on a Diet Weight Loss Community

  • I fit!

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:12 am
    Today I met a mini goal I didn't even know I had. I fit in an amusement park ride that I wouldn't have been able to ride 2 months ago! It's an old school amusement park that doesn't necessarily accommodate bigger people. So I'm waiting for this ride with my kids, the operator couldn't get the bar to close on two people ahead of us, they weren't all that big, even. So they have to get off and we're next in line, we get in and the bar closes on me, just barely, a really tight fit but I fit! I see it as a sign of things to come, hopefully! Just taking this victory as the goal I didn't know…
  • Realizing you're still obese

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:10 am
    Hi. I'll try to make this as quick as possible. I have been feeling very worthless lately, mostly because of my weight. I know weight loss doesn't solve everything, but what I have lost has certainly helped. And I'm proud of that, well.... Just needed a place to turn because everyone around me is skinny, and they don't make me feel bad on purpose. Maybe I'm rushing things too soon? Because for the longest time I saw myself as skinny even though I wasn't, and it's like a slap in the face from reality when you realize you're still huge. And so the other day I was looking at pictures of myself…

  • Kale chips in the microwave

    This is the best thing since the potatoe chip ;) If your like me and like something with that satisfying crunch take some pieces of kale, A Small amount of olive oil ( just enough to coat the leaves) and some salt (or any other yummy spice you like, Onion salt is really good!). Put in the microwave for 3 minutes or until crisp and crunchy. Make sure not to over crowd leaves on plate. SOOOO good, Great movie snack without the guilt. They actually do get crisp and crunchy! Just as good as the ones at whole foods at 1/4 the price.

  • A Tough Day on AIP

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:57 pm
    Today was a tough day on the Autoimmune Protocol. Funny how yesterday was my best day yet... I had energy, was happy, and felt 'normal' for the first time in ages. Yesterday I biked 25 minutes, lifted weights for 35 minutes, swam for an hour straight, and walked a mile and a half, and I still felt great. I slept very well last night but today was not like yesterday. I had a headache, felt blah and tired, and had brain fog. I have been 100% on AIP all week, including today, but I really struggled this afternoon. At one point I felt like I HAD TO HAVE some coffee or some chocolate. I was…
  • AIP Compliance and How I Feel

    21 Jul 2014 | 12:22 pm
    When I first started the Autoimmune Protocol, as you can see from my last post, I felt pretty crappy. It seemed impossible, and I felt so foggy and had a constant headache and couldn't even seem to gather myself to make a meal plan or pick out some recipes to try. I was pretty much winging it all last week, just throwing whatever AIP-compliant foods I had in the fridge and freezer into the oven or on a plate when I was hungry. I poached some wild salmon earlier in the week and whenever I was hungry and couldn't think of what to have, I'd just eat a piece of it cold. Before AIP, if I needed a…
  • Hashimoto's Thyroid and the Autoimmune Protocol Elimination Diet

    19 Jul 2014 | 3:22 pm
    As I mentioned in my update post a week ago, I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. I was kind of relieved when I got that diagnosis, because I've had symptoms of thyroid disease for a long time, but all my TSH blood tests were coming back normal. My regular doctor ordered the TSH every year: in 2012 it was 2.13, in 2013 it was 2.03, and this year it was 2.12 (standard range is 0.45 to 5.10). But some blog readers have, in the past, tipped me off in the comments by telling me there were more detailed, accurate thyroid function tests and that many people who have thyroid…

I think the cat must have sensed all the adoration coming its way as he’s been extra aloof this week. No interest in affection; too busy trying to catch insects and snoozing on the shed roof.

They don’t seem to care if you’re alive or dead, as long as they’re being fed. But then the black and white fluffball above moved in to the little house on our left. It immediately started a turf war with the evil green-eyed cat that lives to our right. The battle ground? Our tiny back yard. Both of these cats share their humans with a dog, so I can understand why they’d fight for the right to lounge peacefully in neutral…

    If there is a lesson I learn over and over again it is that nothing is permanent. Nothing stays super awesome, nothing stays super bad, and nothing stays just OK, especially if we choose them not to be. I’ve been wandering in a haze of OKness since finishing a nutrition certification program last year. I’d spent two years training for something I thought I wanted to do, only to find out it wasn’t what I wanted to do. While I’m still committed to my own nutritional health and wellness, my heart isn’t in counseling others about theirs. My first and true love are words, and while I…

I can imagine what a room would look like in a different color. But usually that’s where my motivation ends. Until this week.

Now there’s research that having a dog could help you get fit and improve your overall health. A recent study presented at this year’s annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine suggested that people who walked a dog on a regular basis sat less during the day, had a lower body mass index (BMI), smoked less, had fewer chronic illnesses, and were less depressed.

    It was a beautiful day yesterday so I did not want to spend my night inside.  I needed something without a lot of preparation that I could throw on the grill. I marinated the pork when I got home from work.  The marinate was a combination of lime juice, cumin, pepper, fresh garlic-finely  chopped.  I let it marinate for about 2 hours before grilling it.  I grilled it over medium heat for about 20 minutes. I choose to pair it with red quiona so there would be nice color on my plate.  The quiona is cooked similar to rice.  1 cup quiona and 2 cups water, bring to a boil and then cover and…

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:05 am
    Want to make sure you're not wasting your time at the gym? Keep these tips in mind to maximize calorie burn and help you get in and out. Have caffeine before: A little bit of caffeine can help improve your stamina, strength, and speed, studies show. Go for one milligram of caffeine per kilo of body weight (for example, a 130-pound woman should consume 59 milligrams of caffeine, or about five ounces of coffee) to reap the benefits. Make sure you warm up: You want to get in and get out, but if you want to maximize what your body can do during your workout, you've got to take a few minutes to…

    Looks like Zoe Saldana is having a good year! The Guardians of the Galaxy actress celebrated her 36th birthday last month and is now reportedly pregnant with twins. Zoe may be used to playing out-of-this-world characters, but her healthy outlook is more down-to-earth. Here's how the laid-back star stays strong and healthy. She mixes it up: The Pilates devotee and former ballerina doesn't like to keep things the same. "I get bored really easily," she told Women's Health. So she goes to the experts to help motivate her.

    Nutrition is anything but a set-in-stone science. It's staggeringly difficult to study as it's near impossible to control for the myriad of confounding variables that might influence outcomes, study durations are too short, and dietary self-reporting is abysmal.As a consequence attitudes and opinions change.It's not an academic crime to have a mind open to change, on the contrary, it's an academic crime if you don't.         
  • Did You See the One About Low-Carb Diets Being No Better than Others?

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:30 am
    There is a study that has been making the rounds the past few days. It touts itself as a meta-analysis designed to answer the question of whether or not low-carb diets are better for weight loss, and also whether low-carb diets are safe. I'll cut to the chase. The study concludes low-carb diets are no better for weight loss and yes they're safe.....but, the authors bizarrely used a carb cutoff of 45% to define "low". A diet with 45% of calories coming from carbs is not a low-carb diet and certainly isn't usefully comparable to one containing 20% carbs (and yet the authors did). So sadly this…

    Preparting for a Doubly Labeled Water Test – (CC BY-NC 2.0) Michael Wyszomierski I’ve written in the past about how important it is to do the calorie math to control our weight, calories available versus calories used. Calorie availability refers to intake, uptake and distribution of calories, i.e., eating, and calorie use to activity level and the burning of calories. This way, you’re able to account for factors such as metabolic rate, the influence of disease, hormonal levels, drug usage, and the intensity and timing of exercise activity.

    I’ve lost well over 100 pounds.  I wear a large shirt — the days of XXXXL are long gone.  I can fit into restaurant booths.  I don’t feel like I’m being gawked at every time I leave the house.  I’m already married, so I don’t need to worry about attracting the ladies. So, why should I continue to lose weight?

  • Why is Auto Insurance So Expensive in Ontario?

    Tim Currie
    16 Jul 2014 | 9:05 am
    There are really two main reasons why auto insurance is so expensive in Ontario as compared to the other provinces in Canada. First, Ontario has the highest density of drivers in Canada. The higher density of drivers means the more likelihood of an automobile accident or injury claim. For example, there is a greater chance of an auto accident in Toronto, than there is in Winnipeg. This possibility and greater likelihood you may have an accident in Ontario, drives higher collision premiums. Big city environments also have a higher claims ratio for theft related losses. People are not as…

    With snow long gone and summer in full swing it is important to remember to share the road and leave extra room for motorcycles and bicycles. Due to their size, these vehicles can easily be lost in a blind spot or remain unseen in low visibility conditions. These riders are inherently more exposed to danger on the road. Regardless of who is at fault, the rider will end up with the bigger injuries in a collision with a heavier, more protected vehicle. There are a few simple steps motorcyclists and car drivers can follow to reduce the risk of collision. Drivers Need to Share and Be Aware As a…

    You may have been hearing a lot lately about usage- based auto insurance and telematics. So what is it? Telematics is the technology that combines telecommunications, your vehicle and the driver. A communication device is simply installed into your vehicle and it sends out pre-determined information about your driving habits. At this time, the small “black box” is installed in the diagnostic port of your vehicle. The unit is a little bigger than a pack of matches. The installed device or black box sends information to a centralized collection company and the information is analyzed, which…

  • The Last Rose of Summer

    Cammy Chapel
    16 Jul 2014 | 1:30 pm
    “The Last Rose of Summer” by Thomas Moore ‘Tis the last rose of summer, Left blooming alone; All her lovely companions Are faded and gone; No flower of her kindred, No rosebud is nigh, To reflect back her blushes, Or give sigh for sigh. I’ll not leave thee, thou lone one! To pine on the stem; Since the lovely are sleeping, Go, sleep thou with them. Thus kindly I scatter, Thy leaves o’er the bed, Where thy mates of the garden Lie scentless and dead. So soon may I follow, When friendships decay, And from Love’s shining circle The gems drop away. When true…
  • Alphabet Soup: Give Me a ‘G’

    9 Jul 2014 | 7:58 pm
    Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve played with the alphabet. If I recall correctly, ‘G’ is the next letter up in my series exploring different words and phrases that have helped me lose and maintain my weight. I don’t think anyone will be surprised by my first ‘G’ word: gratitude. At some point early in this process, I realized that in the past, I hadn’t been applying my usual ‘gratitude in all things’ philosophy to weight loss. I focused on what I couldn’t eat instead of the abundance of healthy foods to which I had access. I…
  • AIM: Food – It’s All in a Day

    Cammy Chapel
    7 Jul 2014 | 2:38 am
    The idea for this month’s AIM post comes courtesy of a reader who asked us to share ideas and recipes for meals. Rather than focus on a single meal, we decided to spread it out a little and cover the whole day by each taking a different meal or snack. If you want to read the day in order, start with Shelley, who is feeding us breakfast. Then hop back over here for lunch! Now, y’all know my recipes are mostly of the chop-and-stir variety, and this is especially so in summer, when even looking at the oven or stove makes me hot. So I eat a lot of cold food in the summer–yogurt…

    Big holiday weekend coming up in the US, and boy am I glad. This week is kicking my butt! With so much going on, I can’t get my mind around any serious topics. Or even semi-serious ones, for that matter. What better time for a little Q&A? Your responses are always so much fun to read, and I find myself in need of some FUN!

    When I woke up yesterday morning, I thought it was going to be just an ordinary day. I had to work a few hours in the morning, and then I planned to walk over to the gym in the afternoon, and then…just ordinary errands and stuff. Until I opened my front door: Oh my, what could this be? My long anticipated Asics have arrived! I think I know a little bit how expectant parents feel now! Twins! And they fit! You can guess how long it took me to get these babies laced up and head out the door. Uh-oh, stormy weather imminent. Oh well. My shoes fit the gas pedal nicely and got me to the gym…

  • Toxic Tap Water: Top 7 Reasons To Get A Home Water Filtration System

    Gina Badalaty
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:12 pm
    The water that comes from your tap should be a life-giving substance but all too often, it is treated with processes, exposed to chemicals, and may actually do more harm than good. Earlier this year, the residents of Charleston, West Virginia, discovered just how toxic water can be when a chemical spill from a nearby plant shut down the drinking water supply of 300,000 residents. While the water was deemed “safe” by officials shortly after, there was a hotbed of controversy surrounding the issue.  Weeks later, many residents still chose not to use their tap water for drinking.

  • A New Resistance Facebook Party Sponsored by Earth Mama Angel Baby

    21 Jul 2014 | 11:07 am
    When I think about being part of A New Resistance it’s reminiscent to me of being part of the Rebel Alliance with Star Wars and I’m Princess Leia. I look great in buns, but my hair is red. But the difference is Star Wars was only a movie and A New Resistance is very real. And the second differences is this is less about getting yourself shot by the Galactic Empire, but more about them killing us slowly over time. Glyphosate has recently been detected in breastmilk all over the US suggesting it is bio-accumulative and that is VERY VERY BAD because it’s a poison. And just as…
  • Pregnancy Life with Gestational Diabetes

    21 Jul 2014 | 3:21 am
    I’ve had a fantastic pregnancy. I have loved every moment of this (my) first pregnancy, and I wish everyone had the same experience as me. Everything was awesome until Week 30 when I was tested for gestational diabetes. My world of eating whatever I wanted (within reason) died the day I received the call with results. What Is Gestational Diabetes? If you’re not familiar, gestational diabetes occurs when your pancreas works hard to create insulin but the placenta produces pregnancy hormones that block it from countering your blood sugar and it also can’t pass through the placenta to…

  • Steak & Caramelized Onions with Arugula and Quinoa Penne

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:16 am
    Grilled steak with sweet balsamic caramelized onions are tossed with baby arugula, gluten-free quinoa, amaranth and brown rice penne pasta (you can use whatever pasta you like) topped with fresh shaved parmesan – I'm a sucker for a good steak salad, and this one is AWESOME! Packed with protein, it's made with lean sirloin, which I cooked on the grill pan, but you can cook it outside on the grill, or in a large skillet. The gluten-free quinoa pasta was from Tru Roots, it cooks al dente and tastes just like regular pasta, I was very impressed! You can also make this with whole wheat…

It's also vegan, high in fiber, protein and only about 100 calories per serving.I've LOVE making my chicken and lentil soup, but I was never really a fan of using lentils in a salad (I'm a picky legume eater).

These thin and lean thin pork chops are pan seared and served topped with julienned summer squash, roasted tomatoes, lemon juice, olives and Feta cheese. So much flavor and color in this dish!And it's hard to believe how light this is! One serving is two thin chops with a generous amount of vegetables on top for only 230 calories (or 6 Weight Watcher Points) I had to actually double check that to see if I was wrong because it sounded too good to be true. If you have a spiralizer, you can use that instead of a mandolin to cut the zucchini and…

    15 Jul 2014 | 9:41 am
    This is by far the best recipe you'll ever try for Minestrone soup – a classic, hearty Italian soup with tomatoes, white beans, vegetables and pasta. You can use Swiss chard or baby kale instead of spinach if you wish and you can omit the pasta if you don't want the carbs – honestly you won't miss it with everything else in this soup.It's just my preference, but I like to puree the beans in this soup, it thickens it and you don't even know they are in there (great for picky eaters). What makes this soup extra special, is using the rind from a wedge of parmesan or…

  • Fewer strokes for older Americans – experts concerned

    18 Jul 2014 | 8:08 am
    The number of older Americans who suffer strokes and the number of younger Americans who die from strokes is on the decline, but the growing rates of obesity threaten to reverse the trend, experts say. A recent study found a 24 percent overall decline in first-time strokes in each of the last two decades and a 20 percent overall drop per decade in deaths after stroke. The decline in stroke risk was concentrated mainly in the over-65 set, however, with little progress in reducing strokes among younger people. “We can congratulate ourselves that we are doing well, but stroke is still the No.

    18 Jul 2014 | 7:54 am
    A new study in women suggests that experiencing one or more stressful events the day before eating a single high-fat meal can slow the body’s metabolism, potentially contributing to weight gain. Researchers questioned study participants about the previous day’s stressors before giving them a meal consisting of 930 calories and 60 grams of fat. The scientists then measured their metabolic rate – how long it took the women to burn calories and fat – and took measures of blood sugar, triglycerides, insulin and the stress hormone cortisol. On average, the women in the…

Besides being a little on the ugly-side, a lot of people push their carts right past them in the produce section for two other reasons: 1) they don’t know how to clean and prep them and 2) they don’t know how to prepare or use them.

Every week, he has to fill hours of air time within a very narrow range of subjects. The subject that gets the best ratings is, of course, weight loss. But how many diets…

New research has identified new tools for screening people who may be at increased risk.The arteries of the brain sometimes develop tiny bulges, called cerebral aneurysms. Most of the time, these bulges are harmless. Only when a bulge breaks are there severe problems. The ruptured aneurysm floods the brain with blood and deprives the brain tissue normally served by that artery of nourishment. This type of stroke can be debilitating…

I love running in general, but taking it to the trails has turned up my love for running a notch or two. Trails offer a few things that road running cannot deliver. First and foremost is the scenery; there is nothing better than running a trail and seeing amazing views or seeing parts of the city that I’ve never seen before. When I’m running on the road, and I generally run the same routes, the road never…

  • Your Current Body Shape Comes Down To This One Thing…

    Rohan Thompson
    5 Jul 2014 | 4:52 am
    Got too much fat? Check your standards… I just stumbled across this quote from a popular self-help guru named Tony Robbins:  “Our bodies are a reflection of our physical standards. They are not a reflection of our desires. Most people have a desire for more energy or a better body or a fitter body. We don’t get our goals. We get our musts.” So true. In the end, most things come down to one thing: your standards… Here’s how I currently make sense of it.  How Your Current Standards Work Your standards are rules that govern the results of…

    With increasing numbers of fatties lugging their bellies around the planet, I was presently surprised when my client Olivia sent me these weights gain ads from 1940s-1970s and 1908-1984. Can you believe it? Advertisements pitching women on gaining fat and avoiding the “skinny” look? Before the invention of fast food, Mars bars, and Doritos, folks had a harder time packing on the pounds.
