    It's been 4 days since I tried that "natural" hot dog, and everything seems back to normal. I felt fine the next day after the migraine went away, so I am considering doing an actual, controlled reintroduction in a day or two. It's kind of fun to think about what to add, but I also feel very cautious. I don't want to mess up what I have going here with the feeling great and the weight loss. I just would like a little more healthy variety and convenience in my diet.There are several really good articles online about how to do reintroductions on AIP. Here are a couple of links for those of you…

  • Adherence to diet can be measured from blood

    21 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    New results show that it's possible to assess dietary compliance from a blood sample. This is especially useful in controlled dietary intervention studies investigating the health benefits of specific diets. So far, such studies have mainly relied on the participants' self-reported dietary intake, which is often biased, making it more difficult to assess the real health benefits.

    Teenagers who don't get enough sleep may wake up to worse consequences than nodding off during chemistry class. According to new research, risk of being obese by age 21 was 20 percent higher among 16-year-olds who got less than six hours of sleep a night, compared with their peers who slumbered more than eight hours.

    19 Aug 2014 | 5:02 pm
    The way parents balance their work schedules may affect their adolescent children's eating habits, according to researchers. For example, parents who spend time with their adolescent kids after school may increase the likelihood that those children will eat regular dinners, according to the researchers. Adolescents having mothers who stay home before school are more likely to eat breakfast. Regular meals at home can help children and adolescents avoid weight problems.

My center has me on a schedule where I'll be weighing in midday. I hate that time, but that's what they have. So I feel my weight always going to be higher there because I have eaten and had a few glasses of water by the time I go weigh in. Grrr.

    Lyn
    19 Aug 2014 | 10:54 pm
    I think I have a valuable lesson here. As I mentioned the other day, after 30+ days of strict AIP I added in a new, non-AIP food (as an act of protein desperation): a hot dog. And afterwards, I got a splitting migraine. I *do* believe that something in the hot dog triggered the migraine; I hadn't gotten a migraine in months, and all the rest of my food was the same old AIP-friendly veggies, fruits, and fats. The only thing different was the hot dog. So what ingredient, exactly, caused this? That's the biggest part of why we do an elimination diet: to figure out what foods make us feel unwell…

    Last night I got back from our fun, relaxing vacation on the beach! We had a wonderful time in the sun and sand, did plenty of beach combing, visited a lighthouse and walked through acres of coastal forests. I'm happy to say that while I supervised the roasting of marshmallows over a fire for smores and broke up the chocolate and graham crackers, I did not partake and I was okay with that. In fact, I was happier with my eating on this trip than I thought I'd be. I had only occasional, fleeting desires to stop and get ice cream or go to new restaurants, but overall it was a *great* feeling to…

    We're heading out on vacation today for some beach and camping fun! I am *very* close to the end of my 30 days of AIP (today is day 29!) and it was quite tempting for a moment to "reintroduce" some things so I could eat more leniently on our trip. But you know, I am somehow calmer about food on this diet, and I quickly realized that it's not the time to be doing that. I'll be busy and distracted and might not notice any subtle changes in how I feel when adding a food... plus, I really want to take this slowly. So I'll stick to my strict AIP for awhile longer, bringing along most of the food I…

I went to see my counselor, who was on vacation last week so I hadn't seen her in 2 weeks. As soon as she saw me she said, "Wow, you look great! You look *so* much better! You really look good!" and so on. I hadn't told her anything about the diet yet, and these completely unsolicited compliments made me stop and think about the changes that have gradually been taking place over the last three and a half weeks.I'm sleeping better... not waking up in the night as…

The pool’s outer wall was designed to be fractionally below high-tide level, so the waves could roll in over the edge, refilling it with clean sea water twice a day. In its heyday it was the place to be, but it closed in 1996 after the impact of indoor heated pools and cheap overseas holidays took hold. The pool then fell into decay.

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.

    Source: Under Armour If there's one thing we know about skier and Under Armour athlete Lindsey Vonn, it's that she refuses to quit. The gold medal Olympian is currently training for a comeback after partially retearing her reconstructed ACL during a training run earlier this year, which forced her to drop out of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Now, Lindsey is working hard, spending four to six hours a day in the gym to meet her goal of "being the best skier of all time," she recently told us - after all, she's only four World Cup titles away from holding the world record in wins.

  • Visionary Quotes from 1929 Obesity Textbook - On BMI and Ideal Weight

    21 Aug 2014 | 2:30 am
    Why don't doctors and other health professionals know this yet? This is the concept that both underlies Dr. Sharma's EOSS staging system and plagues BMI's individual application."It is often difficult to answer the question: How much ought I to weight? It is far more important to know how the weight is changing. If a person's weight has long been stationary, and he is able to do effective work; if he has no obvious disease, and, if, especially, his build is like that of other members of his family, he may conclude that his weight is normal for him.".

No, the reason that you are still fat is not a virus, genetics, medications, unlucky metabolism, or a bad childhood, boss, or relationship.

    (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) David Wright/Flickr You may have heard that coffee might lower cancer risk. And you may be wondering whether the type of coffee roast or the way it’s prepared might make a difference in how it affects cancer. Let’s take a look at the research. The clearest link between coffee and cancer risk is seen in the latest scientific report on preventing endometrial cancer from AICR/WCRF showing that coffee probably reduces risk of that cancer. That link was seen regardless of whether coffee was regular or decaf. Other analyses that have pulled together multiple studies…

    Wendy Wood, Ph.D., Provost Professor of Psychology and Business at the University of Southern California, has researched the way that we make and break habits. “My interest in habits comes from observing how difficult it is to change repeated behaviors in daily life,” says Wood. People associate a place or person with a response, explains Wood, and the habitual response “does not require a supporting goal, [so they] thus repeat good and bad habits.” I continually write about how important it is to make a lifestyle change rather than just going on a diet or exercising…

    Lately, to most anyone who will listen, I’ve yammered about how anxious I feel. “I know why,” I share to people who’ve most often already stopped listening. “It’s because I’m living in the future.  I have lots looming ahead and I’m continually trying to figure out how it will unfold while simultaneously trying to be PRESENT.” I’m super-anxious and this is NOT a state I have familiarity with. I don’t find calm in chaos.  I find calm in….calm. I don’t find relief in constant motion.  I find relief in staying still.

  • 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…

A few tomatoes, a bit of watermelon, lots of strawberries–and that’s about it. Fortunately, I had time to make a decent grocery run last weekend and picked up some fresh produce, including the subject of today’s post: fresh green beans! Even better, I actually had an opportunity to prepare them tonight! As you might expect, this is…
  • AIM: Changing the Plan

    Cammy Chapel
    4 Aug 2014 | 2:41 am
    Change is an inevitable part of life, but it takes on a tricky note when it comes to weight management. When we want to lose weight, we’re all change! change! change!, but once we reach our desired weight, the dialog shifts to stay the same! stay the same! stay the same! But life has a tendency to get in the way of that, and that’s the subject of this month’s AIM post: how our maintenance plans have changed over time. When I began losing weight, I focused on building a plan that would carry me through maintenance. Not TO maintenance, but THROUGH maintenance. Previous…

    “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…

  • What To Do if You Suspect Asbestos

    Elizabeth
    20 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    This week, on Mamavation TV, we heard a touching story from our guest, Heather Von St. James. She is a survivor of a rare form of cancer, malignant pleural mesothelioma. What makes her story unique, is how she was exposed to the cancer causing asbestos. Heather’s childhood memories of greeting her father after work and wearing his coat that was “like wearing a hug” are now known as moments of exposure. Her father was a construction worker and volunteer firefighter. He would come home in car full of dust, in clothes covered in dust, and kiss his family while his beard was…

It's commonly found in the supermarket in small envelopes that you add to stews, beans, rice, etc. It gives yellow rice that yellow color and basically makes anything taste good! Goya is the most popular brand, but I stopped buying it years ago when I realized it had MSG, and started using Badia Sazon, but it's not easy to find so now I make my own which I keep stored in a small spice jar, so instead of using a packet of sazon, I use one and a…

    According to the United States Labor Department, 16.1 percent of millenials, also known as Gen Y (or young adults born between the years 1980 and 2000), are unemployed, while a Harvard study found that only six in 10 millenials have a job. Unemployment is said to be one of the three most stressful events in life, along with death and divorce—perhaps this explains why one study found that millenials are currently the most stressed out generation. The fact is, millenials came of age during one of the worst economic slumps in history. But according to Jason Dorsey, an outspoken millennial and…

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.

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.

That means eat quality foods, sleep deeply, move around more and exercise more for starters....Testosterone is an anabolic steroid, which means it helps to build up muscle size and muscle strength. It also aids sexual function, energy levels and many other body structures.Research done by Vermeulan et al. concluded…

    There are many different components of overall health and wellness. Mosts of my posts are about physical well-being, with the occasional post about mental health and positive mindset.

    So a few weeks ago I had it up to here with panty lines.  I know, I know, it’s not that big of a deal, but I hate them. And for a girl who also hates thongs and refuses to go commando my options seemed limited UNTIL… I blogged about it — click here to see a photo journey through my underwear drawer — then everyone and their mother had a suggestion. So I picked up a few pairs and dug around on Amazon to see what I could find based on the comments I received.

The Husband and I kicked off the evening with a game before guests arrived. It was so nice to spend time with friends and just relax, especially knowing our only plans Saturday were to watch movies ALL day. And that’s exactly what we did. I’m proud of myself.

    I’m never been super into animal prints. Perhaps it stems from the bogus fashion rules that say you shouldn’t wear allover prints, but I’m so glad I got over that. You all know how much I love a good maxi dress, and when I saw this leopard print maxi from IGIGI’s latest collection, I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. When I first put it on, I wasn’t quite sure. It was comfortable – there’s stretch, it’s lightweight, and has a generous cut – but I hadn’t ever been in head-to-toe animal print. Inspired by fall, I added some new…

    When I think of delicious summertime treats, milkshakes are right up there at the top of my list.  As all of us on weight loss journeys know, a milkshake has the power to completely derail your efforts in the few short moments it takes to enjoy it. Fast food chocolate milkshakes range anywhere between 12 and 23 Points Plus® and I found some that were 850 calories and 23 grams of fat.   I don’t know about you but for me, there is no milkshake out there that tastes good enough to warrant sacrificing that many of my points.  I have a great alternative for you and mine is only 4 Points…

    Experience has taught me that it’s best to not go into my Weight Watchers meetings with specific expectations.  I always go in feeling confident and that doesn’t change whether I am up or down, but I don’t go in feeling dead set that I am going to be down that week because then I feel really defeated if I’m not.  Michael asked me this morning how I thought I was going to do and my response was “I was down yesterday, so I hope I am down, but who knows?” I am happy to report that I was in fact down today; 3.2 lbs. to be exact.  Needless to say, I was extremely happy.  After…

    Do you ever find yourself feeling guilty if you think about eating a food that isn’t on your normal eating plan?  Do you think of certain foods as absolutely forbidden?  I always tell people that the great thing about Weight Watchers is that you can eat whatever you want as long as you account for it.  I have to be honest and say that I very rarely take advantage of this fact. When I started my weight loss journey, even though I knew that Weight Watchers allowed me to eat any food I wanted, I developed the mindset that there were certain foods I would just never be able to have again. …

I thought I would share a recipe with you today for a very healthy snack that I enjoy just about every day and it is hearty enough that it can also be used for a meal if you like.  Those of you who know me know that I am a volume eater.  In other words, I want to know how much food I can have for…

This past week went really well.  I was able to fit in plenty of activity and I stayed on plan with my eating all week.  No BLT’s (bites, licks, and tastes), no closet eating, and no eating food and not accounting for it on my tracker.  So needless to say, it was all the more disappointing when the scale did not reflect…
