  • Gut bacteria promote obesity in mice

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:06 am
    A species of gut bacteria called Clostridium ramosum, coupled with a high-fat diet, may cause animals to gain weight, researchers report. They observed that mice harboring human gut bacteria including C. ramosum gained weight when fed a high-fat diet. Mice that did not have C. ramosum were less obese even when consuming a high-fat diet, and mice that had C. ramosum but consumed a low-fat diet also stayed lean.
  • Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids linked to reduced risk of coronary heart disease

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:04 am
    Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, a recent study has found. The sources of polyunsaturated fatty acids include fish, vegetable oils, and nuts. The present study shows, in line with earlier research, that the risk of cardiovascular diseases can be reduced by replacing saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats.
  • Development models put to the test: Low birth weight children are particularly vulnerable to environmental influences

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:03 am
    Low birth weight children are more vulnerable to environmental influences than infants born with normal weight. When brought up with a great deal of sensitivity, they will be able to catch up in school, but on average they will not become better students than normal birth weight children. This result, provided by an international psychologist team, has confirmed the so-called diathesis-stress model of development for low birth weight populations.

Research has found that this self-compassion might be an important means to increase positive body image and protect girls and young women against unhealthy weight-control practices and eating disorders.

  • Getting my groove...

    26 Sep 2014 | 4:49 pm
    This is been a week full of highs and lows on this weight-loss journey. Some days I feel so snacky and I feel like I just want to binge all over the place. But other times, like today, I feel very strong and full of resolve.   I must admit that it's an amazing feeling to fit in a pair of pants that didn't fit you last month and also wear a hand-me-down shirt that belonged to my
  • 21 days...

    22 Sep 2014 | 7:29 pm
    2 lbs down this week... 14 lbs total since Sept. 1. I'm officially back in my 'normal' range of 258-265. But trust me, I'm trying to blow past that.  I was scrolling through pictures tonight and ran across two pictures that were taken exactly 2 weeks apart.  Look at the difference in belly fat since I started the Personal Trainer Food! I can really tell a difference in my clothes

    Two major things of been on my mind this morning. Just rambling thoughts really... First thing: I was really nervous when I ordered the personal trainer food because it was such a big financial commitment. But at the time I was desperate to get back on track. I just went for it. And now I'm really glad I did. Yesterday was a huge struggle food wise. I don't know why, but the cravings were

    Almost at the end of week 3 of low-carb and I feel like I'm doing well! Still no cheats, and still doing the Personal Trainer Food. It's starting to feel 'normal' but certain things make me know I'll never be normal when it comes to food. One of my students brought donuts yesterday from my favorite local bakery for his birthday. I felt like my life would END of I didn't have just one. I could

You can't ask for meals that are more easy to prepare and convenient. I pack my insulated lunch box and a microwavable dish with me at all times and so far, I've been able to eat whenever I feel hungry. (Which is not as

  • I Like to Eat

    29 Sep 2014 | 10:09 pm
    My last three posts were about my experiences with Binge Eating Disorder and the associated obsessive food thoughts and anxiety. Today I wanted to share another "eating problem" that I've had, that is *not* an eating disorder or anxiety issue... and that's the fact that I really like to eat yummy things.Sound obvious? It's not, really. I find that sometimes people want to stick their issues in a box, name it, categorize it... maybe blame it a little bit. Sometimes when we have a difficult problem, like an eating disorder, it can be easy to just say "I am fat because I have this problem and it…
  • Two Kinds of Binges

    28 Sep 2014 | 6:01 pm
    The other day I wrote about how it looks like there may be a connection between obsessive-compulsive disorder and binge eating disorders... about how anxiety is common to both and how obsessive thoughts can lead to the binge. It's like other incarnations of OCD in that a specific thought gets stuck in your head, rotating, playing over and over and over, and one feels compelled to act on it. The trigger may be the sight of a certain food or even just the mention of it, and it doesn't even have to be a food that one particularly craves or likes. But that idea of a specific food just gets stuck.
  • On Shame and Guilt for the Binge

    24 Sep 2014 | 6:44 pm
    Driving to the store, I had the same thoughts as always. Will this be my last binge run? It has to be. I'll *make* it my last binge run. I'll get everything I have been obsessing about, all the things I could want or crave, and I'll eat them, and when they are gone I will never do this again. It has to stop. I can't keep doing this. I'll be 400 pounds in a year if I don't quit this. And this is no way to behave. I'm ashamed of myself. What if I get in a car accident on the way to the grocery store, and die? I will have died for food, for a donut, for a junk run. Even worse... the horror...
  • The Insanity of Binge Eating Disorder, and the Long Path to Recovery

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:05 pm
    A long time ago, I developed Binge Eating Disorder. I'm not even sure exactly how that happened; I started out a normal weight, with normal eating habits. I know I began comfort eating when I lost a much-wanted pregnancy at 21. I probably ate too much in general in my early 20's just because I was a good cook, loved to bake, and enjoyed eating those things with my family. I put on an extra 20 - 25 pounds after three pregnancies and two losses in a short period of time. I ate sometimes to feel better. To stuff down the awful grief. A piece of pumpkin loaf was a nice distraction; a cinnamon…
  • AIP Breakfast: Summer Squash Hash

    15 Sep 2014 | 9:38 am
    This morning I wanted to share a breakfast that I enjoy many days, especially during the summer months when summer squash is abundant. A breakfast "hash" is usually made from potatoes, and while I've made breakfast hash from sweet potatoes on AIP, sometimes I want a less starchy, lighter option for breakfast. Thus was born the summer squash hash.My favorite squash for this is patty pan squash. It is colorful and sweet and seems to release less liquid than other varieties. But I've also made hash from zucchini and yellow crookneck squash with success.First, get your bacon started in the pan. I…

    Tish sent me the funniest video the other day, and it was so great that I knew I just had to share it. I mean, how many times have you talked to your girlfriends about just how annoying it can be at the gym with dudes staring, striking up a conversation or just generally getting you out of your workout zone to flirt? Yes, most guys at the gym are cool. But sometimes, it can feel like a meat market. Where, um, you’re the meat.

We’ve done it at my gym The Fit Pit a few times as a warm-up, but it also makes for a super quick and good exercise to squeeze in your day when you can’t get to the gym or don’t have time for a full workout. Plus, I guarantee that by the end you’ll be cracking up! As the graphic shows (feel free to save and share by the way!), the gist of this burpee challenge is…

    You know how when you get home after being away for several days? You might think, ‘Gee, it’s good to be home.’ Yeah, well, I’m still waiting for that feeling. “Relaxed” isn’t exactly my middle name, so when Jim suggested we go to the beach because he wanted to relax, I said I probably wouldn’t like that. I need to be busy to have fun. Hiking, sightseeing, shopping, going to a play. THAT’S fun. Sitting around doing nothing? Capital B boring. Then I saw the ocean from the balcony of our 12th floor hotel room at North Myrtle Beach and I didn’t care if I did anything else all…

    Seven months ago today, my boyfriend Jim’s garage burned down, taking with it 70 percent of all he owned in the world. Second only to the pain of personally losing something or someone we love is watching someone we care about lose something they love. Conversely, the same is true when we witness their Phoenix moment, when they rise above the loss. Some people – including me – wondered if Jim would sell his place and move away from the memory of that night in February. But he meant what he said when the fire still smoldered: “I’ll rebuild.”I bought this bracelet yesterday: When I…

  • Where Have I Been All My Life?

    22 Jul 2014 | 6:54 am
    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…

  • Too Much of a Good Thing?

    Ami Spencer
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:52 am
    If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Losing weight ultimately comes down to a simple formula: calories eaten are less than calories burned. Whether you’re eating 2500 calories worth of junk food or 2500 calories worth of fruit, vegetables, whole…

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. Like having a workout buddy who motivates you to get (and keep) moving, having a…

    A short post.You know those counters in the supermarket where you can buy prepared meals?Well I've met quite a few folks over the years who believe because supermarket meals are prepared in an actual supermarket that somehow they're healthier than restaurant meals.Sad to tell them (and you), that take-out's take-out, no matter where it's made. And chances are those supposedly healthier supermarket offerings are just as salty, sugary, and calorific as anything you'd buy in a restaurant.

And it would seem much of the world has swallowed it.

Too much fat around the waist is associated with a significantly increased risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and death. However, before discussing that study, I though we should look at the current king of fat indices, the BMI, and the various other obesity index contenders.

First of all, anyone who starts, and, most important, continues a program of regular physical activity should be congratulated. Even if it doesn’t lead to weight loss, regular physical activity improves virtually every aspect of health, reducing risk of cancer and other major chronic diseases. Lack of weight loss is frustrating, if that was the goal for exercising. But it’s not surprising: To lose weight, most…

  • Do you Need an Umbrella Insurance Policy?

    First, let’s try and understand what an umbrella insurance policy provides. This type of policy is an excess policy that provides additional liability coverage that sits on top of your current (or primary) auto policy, homeowner’s policy or boat policy. It will also add some additional liability coverage’s that your primary policy may not cover. The key here is to fill as many gaps as may occur when and if you require protection against legal action. In other words, If you are sued, and the amount of your primary liability policy is exhausted, your umbrella insurance policy will kick…

    8 Sep 2014 | 4:06 pm
    I’m zipping along here, still going a half dozen different ways but in a mostly controlled manner. I had a work trip to the Nashville area last week, which was quite enjoyable because I got to stay in the Opryland area. Not that I care anything about Opryland, but I do LOVE the miles of paved walking trails in the area. After taking a couple of days off all exercise to try to get my back straightened out, I was more than ready to MOVE. On the drive over I had some BBQ Tofu Bites for sustenance. And to keep from gnawing off my arm. These things are tasty travel snacks, let me tell you,…
  • Q & A: The Labor Day Edition

    1 Sep 2014 | 5:53 pm
    Did you have a labor-filled Labor Day? I did…until my sciatica (self-diagnosed) started up, and then I had a s-l-o-w, and largely horizontal, weekend. As I was reclining on my heating pad and watching the Cardinals reclaim first place in the National League Central (yay!), the announcers mentioned a Q&A with…well, somebody I’ve forgotten. But it did prompt me to create a new Q & A post here. I just love learning more about y’all! So here we go: To tie in with Labor Day, I’m wondering what was your favorite job ever? In case you can’t think of one,…

    Despite appearances to the contrary, The Tippy Toe diet has NOT become a monthly or semi-monthly blog. Things just keep coming up! But it’s quiet right now, so I’m going to sneak in my next installment of Alphabet Soup, the series in which I explore–alphabetically–the words and concepts that help me with weight management. “H”, as it turns out, was/is a very helpful letter for me in dealing with matters of weight. First and foremost, the concept of making healthier choices, even if not always the healthiEST choice, helped me transition from a mostly…

  • Pinkwashing: How Companies Profit Off Your Charity While Breast Cancer Still Kills

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:01 pm
    It’s October again, which means it’s time for everything to start turning pink. From soup labels to sports player’s gear, the color pink surrounds us everywhere we look, informing us that it’s breast cancer awareness month. Are you aware that 1 out of every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her life in the U.S.? These high numbers are frightening. Can women protect themselves from getting breast cancer, or are we all at risk from becoming a statistic? Pinkwashing in the U.S. Many causes of breast cancer are environmental, which means we have a chance to prevent it.
  • Eggs: Wholesome Source of Protein or Toxic Danger?

    Now that the kids are back to school, everyone has healthy morning breakfasts and easy, homemade dinners on their mind. Eggs are a great way to provide a protein-packed school breakfast or an easy dinner solution but before you start whipping up omelets, you may want to know why eggs in America may be not the healthiest choice for your child’s growing body – and what you can do about it.

  • Three Organic Flavorful Fall Meals under $25

    29 Sep 2014 | 12:05 pm
    As we get into the heart of fall, I always crave warm, rich meals, and those signature fall flavors. I wanted to create a menu that incorporated these comfort foods while still being budget friendly and organic. Last week’s menu was meat free, which is a great way to save money. However, meat is a big part of most people’s diets, so I was sure to incorporate some dishes that will satisfy the carnivore as well. I purchased the grass fed beef during a sale and tossed it in the freezer until I was ready to use it. This is a great way to always have some quality meat ready to go, and…
  • Mini Eggplant Pizzas with Pasta

    26 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Just because you’ve chosen to feed your family healthier food, doesn’t mean you have to give up things like pizza and pasta. I married an Italian, there is no way he would be on board if I didn’t keep feeding him these staples. Delivery and frozen pizzas are usually far from healthy or organic, and they are also costly. This at home version is my solution to keep my family, wallet, and waistline happy. Mini Eggplant Pizzas are made with all the sauce and melty cheese you’d expect on a pizza, but slices of eggplant make up the crust. You won’t miss the carbs…
  • Organic Fiesta Salad

    25 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    When I think of eating organic, my first thought is a salad. Not simply because organic vegetables are more nutritious. but because they taste better too. I just want to eat a big plate of delicious organic greens and know I’m making my tastebuds and body happy. This Organic Fiesta Salad is simple, but showcases the strong flavors of the ingredients. The soft black beans and creamy avocado are a welcome contrast to the crisp greens and tangy citrus of the lime. The generous portion will keep you full and satisfied, all under 300 calories. This budget friendly meal comes out to just…

  • Skinny Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars

    These cookie bars are the perfect Fall dessert – moist and chewy, made lighter with pumpkin puree and studded with butterscotch chips.

  • Buffalo Chicken and Bean Chili

    24 Sep 2014 | 9:44 am
    This is chili with a buffalo chicken twist! So easy to make and SOOOO good – perfect for game watching or any night of the week!And the best part is it doesn't need to simmer all day. This is ready in about 40 minutes, and most of that time is unattended. To thicken the chili and give you that texture like it's been simmering for hours, I added refried pinto beans to the mix which always works like a charm!I like to serve mine with a handful of chips like Beanitos which are made from white beans, but any baked chip is great and of course, some carrot sticks and celery on the side.

They literally fall of the bone when they come out of the slow cooker!I love to serve them with just a little brown rice on the side, but totally optional!My house was a little divided on this recipe. My husband thought it was good but not great, but my oldest daughter Karina thought it was AMAZING as she put it.

  • The Poor Artichoke: Shunned, Dissed & So Misunderstood! (by Chef Isabella)

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:43 am
    My heart aches for the artichoke. This edible thistle plant is shunned, dissed and misunderstand.  I get it. 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. If you’re one that strolls on by with your nose in the air,  quit hating! You’ll thank me! First off, purchase some. (easy enough, right? Secondly, once you get them home, prep them.

Wow, as ubiquitous as salt is, why is there so much disagreement over salt in our daily lives?Without salt, we will die. That establishes something of a "lower bound" on how much salt to eat.

    What a difference a week makes!  This is why I say “Quitting Is Never an Option!”  You are going to have a bad week here and there throughout your weight loss journey but if you let one bad week ruin all of your efforts, you will never know what might have been.  I was feeling really down after last week’s weigh-in but certainly not down enough to give up.  Thank goodness! I decided to dig my heels in and just keep pushing this past week and I am so glad I did!  As I keep saying, follow the Weight Watchers plan because IT WORKS!  Following the plan, I was able to lose 5 lbs. this…
  • Where There’s a Will There’s a Weigh

    8 Sep 2014 | 7:03 pm
    I could not write this post on Friday because I was not in the right frame of mind and I knew it.  When I started this blog, the idea was to encourage all of you and I definitely did not have anything encouraging to say on Friday.  I am ashamed to say that I let my frustrations get the better of me and I had two crying melt-downs before Noon.  Now that my pity party is over, I feel like its safe to tell you about my weigh-in. For the third week in a row my weight was up and this time it was bad.  I went up 3.6 lbs. and the worst part was that I had truly committed to sticking to plan and…

The best part of being honest with myself is how…

    Steak is full of nutrients and can be included in moderation as part of a healthy diet. Packed with protein, iron and vitamin B12, steak supports your immune system. Although steak is healthy to eat in moderation, too much saturated fat can lead to obesity, high cholesterol and heart disease. I usually limit to no more than once or twice a week due to steak’s risk of saturated fat. It’s important to limit your intake of saturated fat to lower your health risks.

  • Protein Banana Oatmeal

    You don’t need instant oats to make a quick oatmeal breakfast. You can cook protein banana oatmeal on your stove in less than 10 minutes! In fact, I encourage you to stay away from instant oats as they are highly processed (precooked and dried) and often contain added sugar. My rule of thumb is to avoid processed foods as much as possible. Old-fashioned oats, also known as rolled oats, are much less processed because they are only steamed and then rolled flat. Ingredients (1 Serving): 1/2 cup rolled oats 1 cup water 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1 banana Handful of sliced almonds…

This comes from watching videos from bodybuilding.com (NOT people at your gym) and practicing these moves in front of the mirror. To find the videos, visit bodybuilding.com and type in the exercise you want to see in the search bar. Teaching your body proper form is much easier to do with ligher weights as opposed to heavier weights. It is for this reason that I always recommend starting off weight lifting with higher reps (reps of 12 is recommended) and lighter weights…
