    Over the last few years I’ve discovered that I hate winter. I just hate it. I struggle through the season every year. The worst period in my life was when I went through multiple fall/winter seasons due to moving back and forth between continents. While I’m not one to self-diagnose, I’ve often wondered if I have SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder, or simply just don’t do well during the winter (lower energy, oversleeping, etc.). While I’ve been diagnosed with PMDD, I’ve noticed that I struggle the most during the winter months when the light is low and the…

But with an internet full of misinformation and some “professionals” with little, if any, formal education in nutrition, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages everyone to seek their healthy eating information from educated, trained and qualified nutrition experts – registered dietitian nutritionists.

  • Family criticizing your weight? You might add more pounds

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:05 pm
    Women whose loved ones are critical of their weight tend to put on even more pounds, says a new study on the way people's comments affect our health. "When we feel bad about our bodies, we often turn to loved ones -- families, friends and romantic partners -- for support and advice. How they respond can have a bigger effect than we might think," said one author.

  • Merry Monday - December 22

    22 Dec 2014 | 2:46 am
    Good morning and welcome to "over the hump" - the days will get longer now as we move towards Spring. Lots to do today, particularly tree decorating. Unfortunately I can't find the missing parts of the Bling Tree so did not get it done yesterday. Can't decorate it if it isn't upright! I'm kind of hoping the stand pieces are in the box with the decorations. I remember making a mental note about location last year but it seems to have leaked out of my brain since January. Today is supposed to be an "at home" day of final wrapping, some cooking, laundry and decorating.

Alas, it's also time to avoid holiday cookies regardless of what one celebrates. Some broken pieces arrived in my life from a friend's baking - she didn't want to eat them all herself! My job today is to finish the two gifts that I have to have under the tree by Wednesday night.

  • Slimfast alternatives?

    21 Dec 2014 | 9:01 pm
    I have a difficult relationship with food. I find eating unpleasant unless I'm very hungry, so I skip breakfast and lunch, and then totally pig out at dinner once I'm ravenously hungry. Going to "cereal for breakfast, sandwich and salad for lunch, and a reasonable dinner" is not going to work -- I've tried, I've lost weight that way, then I've started finding excuses to miss breakfast and lunch and ended up back where I started. My therapist has suggested using meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch -- no handling/preparing food, no taking time out to "eat", just…

    Rishi Lost 110 Pounds in One YearRishi had been overweight all his life until age 25. Both his parents were also overweight. When he was in his early 20's he watched his father undergo triple bypass surgery. But at this time he was still not worried about his own obesity. He continued to eat lots of junk food and did not exercise. It was only when he turned 25 and got a serious health scare that he decided to change his lifestyle. He ended up in the emergency ward of the hospital and was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

    I went to see Cloe this morning and got some words. I spilled many of my own, too... mainly talking about my feeling that even though life is "good" right now, I don't *feel* "good." I had a rough last two years or so, some of which I blogged about and some of which I didn't. A lot of the hard stuff is now *past* (the death of my best friend, my being in chronic pain and unable to walk normally or at all, medical crises of family members, etc) and I feel I should be "over it"... but I'm not. I thought that when I was able to walk again and wasn't in pain every hour of every day, I would be so…

    When I posted last week with my regain pictures, I got some very thoughtful comments: some with support, some with suggestions, some asking what my plan is now. And that is the question that is sticking in my head: what's your plan? And my immediate answer is, I don't know. I am all planned out. I am highly resistant to starting any more plans, diets, regimens, etc. I hesitate to make anymore proclamations about what I am going to do and how determined I am to do it, because I am sick of doing that and then failing. I have spent YEARS now picking a plan, doing the plan... sometimes for a few…

Every ten pounds I took pictures. I was so excited, proud of how my hard work was paying off, and amazed at the transformation of my body.Seeing the pounds pile back on as I've regained weight has not been so fun.

It's going to be a wonderful day!Yesterday was so nice. As always, I did all the cooking and made the traditional dishes: roasted (fresh, free range) turkey, gravy, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls, gravy, corn, cranberry sauce, Snicker salad, and two kinds of pies. We ate and had sparkling cider and then had fun together visiting. My son brought over his new video game system and…

    Every year, the same holidays come and go. We have our traditional foods for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. Some years I have struggled because I was on some kind of a special diet and couldn't ("shouldn't") eat some of those traditional things. I still *wanted* them, but some years I made do with substitutes.When I was counting calories, I used low fat cream of mushroom soup in the green beans, made gravy without any fat drippings, ate only white meat, and didn't put butter in the stuffing. When I was low carbing, stuffing was completely off limits as were the sweet…

But this tiny little word has had a big impact on my life this year, and this video will tell you a little more about why. Now, I’m really curious: Do you have “no” confidence? Or does the thought of turning someone or something down make you feel squeamish? It’s taken…

I’ve dabbled across the islands, Highlands, Lowlands and Speyside and while the milder fellas taste less like punishment, it’s not exciting me like it would if it were 52 gins or 52 chocolate bars. It’s mostly likely because I just slurp about a teaspoon’s worth then declare, “Bleeeeurgh!”. And I’m still intrigued by the romance and history and…

So he has: one email account for family correspondence, one for online shopping, one for bird watching, one for the allotment, one for golf and one for photography.

One large egg clocks in at just 72 calories, but beyond the calorie count, there are so many healthy reasons you should always have a carton ready to go in your fridge. They're packed with protein: Doubling your protein intake can help you lose weight, and if you have a hard time eating a lot of meat, eggs are a great alternative. Just one large egg offers 6.3 grams of protein. They can help you lose weight: Due to the fact that they're high in protein and low in carbohydrates, eating a regular egg…
  • The Best Cereal For Weight Loss

    22 Dec 2014 | 1:43 am
    Can't get enough of cereal? We don't blame you. It's a quick, easy, and convenient food that makes breakfast a no-brainer. However, if your favorite variety is loaded up with the wrong ingredients, it's not supporting your weight-loss goals and healthy resolutions for 2015. Dietitian Julie Upton, MS, RD of Appetite For Health, recommends one and one-half cups of Post Great Grains Protein Blend served with low-fat or nonfat milk and one small banana sliced on top. If you're not a fan of that particular cereal, you still have options, but you'll need to closely read the back of the box.
  • Before and After: Lauren's New Year's Resolution Helped Her Go From a Size 14 to a 4

    22 Dec 2014 | 12:47 am
    Our next Before & After success story, Lauren, turned years of yo-yo dieting into a lifestyle that works. "I have struggled with my weight my whole life," she says on her blog, My Best Badi. "By the time I reached high school I was 6 feet tall and over 220 pounds. . . . For the next eight years I tried every diet and diet food out. I lost 40 lbs, gained 15 back. I lost 55 pounds, gained 25 back. It was a vicious cycle and ended up with me being back at 204 pounds on the eve of 2012. I was in bed, sick, and depressed."

    While I'll be taking a break from blogging for the next few weeks, I'll be posting some of my favourites from back in 2011.The other day I received a note from the Dr. Oz PR team informing me of his upcoming show (aired two days ago) on the HCG diet. For those of you who don't know, the HCG diet is one of those ridiculous injection diets. The kind where you see a physician who prescribes an insanely low number of daily calories (500) along with injections. Here in Canada those injections are usually B-vitamins , while in the States they're often Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG injections…

    18 Dec 2014 | 2:30 am
    Just a quickie on calories and diaries. As I've mentioned before, People are not walking math formulas whereby if they have 3,500 more or less calories than they burn they'll gain or lose a pound.3,500 calories of one food or type of food will likely have a different impact on health, hunger, thermic effect, and weight than 3,500 calories of another food or type of food.Different people have different caloric efficiencies whereby they are seemingly able to extract more calories from food or reserves than others and lose weight with more difficulty (and gain with greater ease).And yet here's…

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:30 am
    I do a lot of interviews with the media about fad diets - pretty much all of which with extremely reputable reporters and news outlets. I do understand the media's job is to sell media and that fad diets, regardless of their efficacy, sustainability or scientific underpinnings, can fairly be described as newsworthy - especially if wildly popular. I also understand that the public has a seemingly insatiable appetite for entertaining the promise of simple solutions to complex problems. But shouldn't there be a limit to the degree of bullshit a reporter will cover? Sure, reputable reporters and…

  • You Better Not Lie, Dr. J’s Telling You Why

    18 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    (CC BY 2.0) Richard Elzey/Flickr Most people feel it is bad to lie, and kids are told not to lie from birth. But studies–and common observations–show that children do lie. So given this, how can we encourage children to not lie as often? A study done at McGill’s Dept. of Educational and Counseling Psychology, looked at a couple of ways to encourage children not to lie. To half of the children, the experimenter invoked social approval by telling each child that the researcher would be happy if the child told the truth; to the other half the experimental invoked internal…

However, you might have notices that it can be pretty sweet, and that might have got you?wondering about the calories. That sweet taste comes from one or two teaspoons of sugar or honey added to each serving, usually along with a few tablespoons of milk.

    In the so-called developed world, millions are putting-off dental care because they simply can’t afford it. Dental procedures are expensive and lack of insurance means looking for solutions when faced with the prospect of a major treatment. This is when the idea of traveling abroad for cheaper dental care becomes an attractive alternative, with most people finding they can save, on average, 70% at a foreign destination.

This may be of particular importance to golf club insurance policy holders, as properties tend to be in communities that are fairly remote. A club may pose a certain amount of risk to their own property as well as neighbouring residential or commercial properties. The Fire Underwriters Survey analyzes data in order to arrive at a classification of individual communities across Canada. Where is your club located? This can affect a commercial…

    Dozens of private schools in Ontario have been given a failing grade by the Ministry of Education. What the data shows is that a number of institutions have been fraudulently handing out diplomas to their students. As well, the provincial auditor has accused some schools of handing out higher grades than deserved and course credits despite a lack of attendance. What has resulted is an increase in the oversight and a higher level of scrutiny of the inner workings of Ontario institutions. This means there is an increase in the need for improved private school insurance protection. The…

Holidays that are filled with lots of foods and drink everywhere. During this time, it is easy to say to yourself, “Don’t worry about the holidays, I will lose weight after the first of the year.” Most overweight people don’t want to hear what I am about to say next. However, it is important, and has to be said. This is a poor attitude, and although you may have good…
  • Is It Possible for Me to Lose Weight?

    Weight Loss Success - Lose Weight -> Get Healthier -> Live Longer George Diamond Is It Possible for Me to Lose Weight? Weight Loss Success Is It Possible for Me to Lose Weight? The answer for me is “yes,” but many people prefer the answer of “no.” The easy thing to do is to be content with what you’ve been given, and dealt with. When we accept this, the responsibility for our weight disappears because it is not our fault. I meet people who are eagerly willing to tell me that they can’t lose weight because of this or that. However, when I ask them what activities they…

    The Tippy Toe Diet

  • Bouncing Back, Sort Of

    Remember that cold I mentioned a while back? I’m pretty sure it was more than that. Maybe one of the flu strains. Maybe diptheria or malaria or typhoid. Whatever it was, it kicked my fanny quite nicely. But I’m back, almost, and feeling closer to my normal perky self. It helps that we had a few mild days, weather-wise, and I was able to get out and breathe some fresh air. While I was at it, I cleaned the gutters on my house and got all the leaves raked and bagged. It’s nice to have that to-do item to-done! I also played around in the kitchen over the weekend, and I’m…

    After what seems like months of traveling, I am at home for the near future. Unless, of course, I get called to cover someone else’s training appointments. My travels came to an end with a bang. My parents and I spent the Thanksgiving weekend on the coast. This was my brilliant idea, and one I regretted for a brief time on Thursday. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the wind was screaming through my clothes. I had checked the forecast before we left, but I hadn’t noticed that it was supposed to be windy. Brrrr, but only for the morning. By afternoon, I was able to get out for…

    I can’t let National Peanut Butter Lovers Month pass without paying homage to a dietary favorite. I was going to write a poem, but someone else already beat me to it. A wee excerpt: Oh, sweet legume that grows beneath the earth! Let me now proclaim your worth! May my lips your great praise utter Crunchy, munchy peanut butter Creamy, dreamy peanut butter. I do love peanut butter. In fact, let me count the ways: That scratches the surface anyway. Given the caloric nature of peanut butter, I don’t eat it with wild abandon. **pause for a moment of sadness** The most common way I eat…

    You’d think with all the traveling I’ve been doing lately that I’d be ready to stay at home for a while. And I thought I was until a friend who’d seen my Burgess Falls photos expressed an interest in seeing the falls herself. Since I’m living solo and working (mostly) virtually, we loaded up the car and headed out. It’s times like these I love my life. The only potential crimp in our plan was that my friend has a wonky knee and I’ve been dealing with some foot pain, probably something to do with plantar fasciitis and/or heel spurs and/or something…
  • Lessons from That Old House

    Cammy Chapel
    30 Oct 2014 | 12:04 pm
    There’s been a great deal of drama (and a fair share of comedy) in my neighborhood this week. We’ve had news crews camped out and helicopters circling overhead. Residents have set up lawn chairs to watch the story progress. Or not progress, as it turned out. And it’s all because of what everyone’s calling “that old house.” It seems the Wills family sold some property they owned in a commercial corridor. On that property was an old farmhouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places. To save the family home, they decided to move it onto a…

    Holiday season is crush time when it comes to cooking. So little time to cook so much – and too much junk that is just unhealthy for your family. As you shop for your holiday meals, you might grow weary from trying to pull together a dinner that can satisfy your family and meet your health objectives. The shelves are lined with preservative-laden, GMO-loaded artificially colored foods that no longer even appeal to your appetite but are cheap and easy for a busy holiday week!

  • Organic Stuffed Acorn Squash and Chicken Apple Sausage

    12 Dec 2014 | 11:57 am
    When the winter squash is in season I start to get excited. I love to experiment with new recipes and bring back some of my favorites too. Organic Stuffed Acorn Squash and Chicken Apple Sausage is one of those favorites. It pairs the sweet organic sausage with savory stuffed organic acorn squash that’s full of organic kale and garlic. It’s a delicious and healthy alternative to the normal side of rice or potatoes. I’ve seen conventional acorn squash go on sale a time or two, but the organic version never had, until now. It’s like the grocery store knew I had been…
  • Barley and Organic Caramelized Vegetable Salad

    11 Dec 2014 | 11:05 am
    When I was in Mamavation Bootcamp 18, I discovered alternative grains like quinoa, amaranth, and barley. These grains are low-glycemic (which means it they won’t spike your blood sugar) and gluten free. I love to incorporate them into dishes for added whole grains, a unique texture, and a more filling meal. I did just that with my Barley and Organic Caramelized Vegetable Salad. The crisp organic spring greens, sweet caramelized organic vegetables, and vibrant, organic basil vinaigrette would make a fine salad on their own. With the addition of barley, it adds a healthy carb and a…

    I’m pretty new to the whole “green smoothie” trend. I went into it thinking a green smoothie is just like a fruit smoothie, only you add greens. Well it’s not quite the same. You can’t just blend together any ingredients and make something that’s tasty, like with a traditional fruit smoothie. Nope. I learned this the hard way with trial, error, and some very ugly looking (and tasting) concoctions. In the end I found a good balance of flavor and nutrition to make this Organic Green Breakfast Smoothie. It’s packed full of foods that will get you going…

Despite its misleading name, this act would stop the GMO labeling movement that is gaining strength and popularity across the nation in its tracks. More aptly renamed the “Denying Americans the Right to Know Act,” or DARK Act, by organizations like the Center for Food Safety (CFS), this law would take away your right to know what is in your food. According to the CFS, DARK Act legislation would…

Topped with avocado and a squeeze of lime, it's the perfect balance of flavors and textures.This recipe is ever so slightly adapted from Martha Stewart's new cookbook, One Pot.

Junk food like chips, pastries, candy, donuts and sodas aren't nutritious and have loads of calories. They also have you wanting to eat more in just a short time. Control your eating with a sound nutrition plan.Hopefully, your nutrition plan includes protein with every meal. You don't need to do protein shakes...just eat the right foods. Research has proven that protein keeps blood sugar levels more steady and helps you feel fuller for a longer period (slower digestion).

The concept of healthy eating is not new, but what constitutes a healthy diet does change. 50 years ago a healthy diet would have looked rather different to that of one today.

    1 Dec 2014 | 8:09 am

In turn, this makes your body start to take calories from the protein in your muscle tissue. You’ll lose weight at first, but it’s muscle mass, not body fat. Restricting calories fools your body to protect you from going…

    Eating a meal at a restaurant can be challenging when your goal is to eat healthier. Don’t worry, though, there are plenty of healthy options that are available at a variety of restaurants. One important key to remember is that you don’t want to overeat just because “you can.” Also, try to stay away from those tempting excess carbohydrates such as the bread baskets and beer. Don’t be afraid to ask your waiter how your food will be cooked, either. Ask what oil they cook with, whether it’s fresh or frozen, and specify any changes you want to make. They are…
