    So yesterday, I did track my food. I generally track calories one or two days a week just to remind myself of portion sizes and quantities and how they add up, but it's not something I like to do on a daily basis. I know when I track, I tend to eat a bit less just because I am measuring and aware. I also know the last 2 weeks I have let more junk into my diet... not a lot in quantities or frequency, but enough to stall my weight loss. Just cutting the junk out and having a moderately active lifestyle is enough for me to lose a couple pounds a month; I am hoping that by tracking my activity…

    InsomniaMost of us are all too familiar with the effects of a poor night's sleep – irritability, low energy and "brain fog" the next day, to name a few. But for those who suffer from insomnia, the longer-term effects are more worrying.Studies have linked sleep problems to obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and depression, while recent research has found that sleeping too much, as well as too little, increases the risk of stroke.The US study suggested that for those with high blood pressure, regularly sleeping more than eight hours a night or fewer than five respectively…

Because you will end up with what you don't want--more weight gained than what you lost!If you try a "weight loss only diet," what are you going to do once that diet ends? Another diet?

  • 15 Healthier Treats That will Make Your Sweet Tooth Happy

    Three years ago satisfying my sugar fix meant eating my entire calorie recommendation for the day. In one “treat”. It left me feeling guilty. Angry. Annoyed. And worst of all, disappointed in myself. Sometimes I’d feel so ashamed and out of control, I’d try to “hide” my sweets from my husband. The sad part is that, unlike me, he wouldn’t have beaten me up over it. Today I don’t have to feel guilty about the times I give in to my cravings. I’ve learned to satisfy my sweet cravings with foods that nourish my body.

    I heard this song on the radio and wow! I have been a singer since I was 7 years old and music has been a huge part of me pretty much all my life. Gaining weight took that away from me for most of my adult life. After I graduated from high school I pretty much put that on the back burner because my self esteem went out the window as I gained weight. I tried several times to get back into it but I never could. One of my goals is to join a choir or two and get back into singing again. heck, I might even join a band. lol That being said, some songs just speak to me. They can motivate me to my…

I've heard about FitBits and thought about getting one before, but it seemed like maybe a waste of money... just another gadget that I'd use for a little while and then toss in the drawer with the old pedometer. But I guess I am kind of tired of not doing much about my weight situation. I figured maybe this will give me a little motivation to move more. You know I like to look at stats and reports, and this FitBit gives me plenty of that: steps taken, flights of stairs climbed, minutes of intense activity, hours sleeping (and minutes spent…

    As I've had a little time today to relax and think about the direction of my life re: weight loss, I came to the realization that most of the time, I am pretty happy and content despite my obesity. There are drawbacks, of course, to being this fat: health risks, sore knees, fatigue (which seems to have lifted dramatically with the arrival of good weather), slowness, bigger clothes. But most of the time I feel like I am doing what I want to do. I'm living a life I want to live. But then I wonder... am I just *forgetting* how much better it used to be when I was 50 pounds lighter? WAS it that…

Only a few of us may love to wake up early to attend their various tasks in the course of the day, let alone to workout or lift weights. How you get up in the morning and what you do afterwards can be essential to your health, and may set a good precedent for the rest of your day. There are many benefits to working out as soon as you wake up. First of, if you workout or lift weights before you eat breakfast, your body will be burning strictly stored fat as energy, which can result in a lot of quick weight loss.

One of the questions I ask during my first visit with a patient is, "Looking at your life - time, stress, health, work, home, kids, mood, etc. - is now a good time to try to affect change?"I think it's an important question because sometimes life justifiably gets in the way of great intentions. Given lifestyle change requires planning, concentration, organization, and effort, and given those qualities are at times realistically challenged by real-life, sometimes it might be better to not set yourself up for struggle, and instead, respect reality…

Here's the trailer, which for the record, has been viewed over 10 million times on YouTube, Maybe the movie somehow manages to not teach girls to hate themselves, but given I was alerted to the movie's existence by a high school teacher who informed me that the term had made its way to their school's hallways and lunchroom, I'm guessing not.

The change is not being made for purposes of improving the beverage’s nutritional content, which will remain approximately zero. And it’s not being made because the Pepsi people think aspartame is harmful. Pepsi has always claimed it to be utterly benign, and the federal…
  • Obesity Doesn’t Just Happen To Us

    (C BY 2.0) mst7022/Flickr To paraphrase the wonderful dearly departed comedian Phyllis Diller after her near-death experience from a heart attack: Don’t worry about dying, you can’t do anything about it, it just happens to you! From everything I’ve been reading about obesity, it’s the same thing, We can’t do anything about it, it just happens to us. Now before you feel I have just gone all Alfred E Newman with this “What Me Worry” attitude about it all, think about all the studies on the topic of obesity and where the blame always goes as well as the…

    United States government work If you’re fairly itching to send your Congressperson an angry email just on principle (the principle being the current unwillingness of Congress to accomplish absolutely anything), but you need a specific issue to use as a hook, let me humbly suggest something along the lines of the following. Dear (name of Representative who has been a waste of salary since 2004): Wise up and fully fund the damn Food Safety Modernization Act! Now! Cordially, (your name here).

  • Losing weight is simple.

    Carla
    28 May 2015 | 12:55 am
    “You need to stop saying that. It isn’t easy or simple. I know what you mean–others don’t.” My husband made that remark to me after I responded to a new friend’s question about losing weight. It was only then I realized how frequently, when asked about my journey to fit; I used the adjectives easy and simple. Once he pointed it out, however, I immediately saw his perspective. Weight loss, loss maintaining, and healthy living was all very simple…to explain. Carving my healthy living path, getting fit & remaining that way was all very easy …in theory. In no fashion…

    band geek FTW!! I am definitely not a sportswoman. I was born before the push for girls in sports. I claim (I think I read it somewhere?) it’s all because when there’s dyslexia in a family the non-dyslexic sibling will have poor athletic prowess. The bottom line is I’m not  traditionally athletic. I’ve discovered through trial & error, however, I enjoy moving my body and lifting heavy things/setting em back down. Most days the “heavy thing” I end up lifting is my body and I’m more than content with this fact. I think that was the reason I never…

I have a lot of thoughts on the topic of blogging. Even though I don’t write long “journalog”-type posts much, I still consider myself having been a blogger since April 2000.

  • 4 lessons weight training taught me about life.

    Carla
    20 May 2015 | 12:55 am
    Resistance training, for me, is bigger than something I do to stay fit as I age. It’s taught me more about life in general than anything else I’ve done and, paradoxically, helps me remain laser-focused on whats important to me outside fitness. I advocate resistance training for health, but am a resistance training evangelist because of what Ive learned from it about living fully. 1. If you wait for the perfect facility opportunity you’ll always find an excuse not to start. Ive trained in less than ideal conditions.  Central American gyms stocked with rusty dumbbells. …

    Do you ever go to reach for something and at the last second you’re distracted or focus on something else, so you end up missing your target? You’re off a fraction to the right or to the left. Or maybe too high or too low. You get it on the second try–or maybe the third–but you do get what you’re after. That, in a nutshell, is how my life is rolling right now. I start out with a semi-determined day, get distracted somewhere along the way, and then play as much catch-up as I can. Some things get done; some things don’t. (Obviously, blogging isn’t…

I should make some more of these soon. Next, I made a loaf of whole wheat bread and experimented with adding some of my Gamino’s olive salad to it. It tasted good, but it came out looking like meatloaf. Not the look I was going for. A friend and I rebranded it as vegan meatloaf.

After I grill them, I squeeze more lemon over them and top them with a little fresh grated parmesan – SO good!I put lemon slices in between the shrimp for presentation but it's totally optional. If you plan on doing this, it's best to double up on the skewers so the lemon and shrimp doesn't rotate around the stick when you're grilling. I actually forgot to…

    Who you sit down to enjoy a meal with and how much they eat can actually influence how much you consume , a UNSW Australia-led study concludes. This psychological effect, is known as social modeling. What it boils down to is that most people tend to eat less than they normally would if they dined alone when their companion consumes smaller portions of food. Study lead author, Associate Professor Lenny Vartanian of the UNSW School of Psychology, says, “Internal signals like hunger and feeling full can often be unreliable guides.

The sad part is that, unlike me, he wouldn’t have beaten me up over it. Today I don’t have to feel guilty about the times I give in to my cravings.

I reassured her that she could continue to put creamer in her coffee. I know I’ve said this before but let me say it again, “No one food is making you fat.” If you are eating something every day then chances are you really enjoy that food. For some people that may be creamer in their coffee, dressing on their salad, or whatever food that many articles have deemed “fattening”. So how do you know which of…

  • 3 "Bad" Foods that are Healthy

    22 Apr 2015 | 8:49 am

However, after more research it was found that the cholesterol in food is not the culprit behind high blood pressure in humans1. So, the cholesterol worry has been put to rest and we can focus on the benefits of eggs. First of all lets look at the macros in an egg2. Cal: 75 Carb: 0 Fat: 5 Pro: 7 These are pretty awesome macros. Of course, if you don’t have a lot of fat left for the day you can always discard the yolk and just eat the whites which cuts out almost all the fat and still has about 3.6g of…

    With so many diets these days it’s making it hard to know which foods are legitimately the right ones to eat.

My goal is to help you decide on the right carbs to eat by supplying you with nutritional facts on the different carbs out there and what their benefits are. From there you can decide for yourself what your favourites are. Carbohydrates are essential to a well balanced diet,…

    One of the worse ways to start your brand new day is eating foods that are “acid” forming. When you consume foods that are acid forming, you create a bad environment in your body. A bad environment in your body results in the slow functioning of your brain, loss of energy, depression, weak immune system, lack of enthusiasm and negative thinking. As a result, this makes it hard to get through the first half of your day and even through simple tasks.

Yes, that’s right from just a quick 20-30 minute workout your metabolism will skyrocket, meaning you will burn more calories throughout the day, even if you’re sitting for most of it.   A kettlebell workout is also a “not so” boring way to get cardio in, this is because you’re doing functional movements rather than…

    Metabolism-Boosting Foods To put it in the simplest terms, metabolism refers to the process by which the body breaks down the calories taken in into energy. It is a complex procedure during which oxygen in the blood cells is used to break down the food and drink to release energy. The fact is that the energy requirements of the body remain the same on any normal day. When a person takes in more number of calories than are required by the body, it results in fat as those calories are not converted into energy.

This makes protein as one of the important components of our system. So next time when you go on to have your meal give special attention to the amount of your protein consumption.

Food items which come under the category of healthy foods include fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and foods rich in proteins. On the other hand, foods that need to be cut back on include refined grains, foods with unhealthy fats and any food with high calorie content because of added sugars and salts.

    26 May 2015 | 7:07 pm
    InsomniaMost of us are all too familiar with the effects of a poor night's sleep – irritability, low energy and "brain fog" the next day, to name a few. But for those who suffer from insomnia, the longer-term effects are more worrying.Studies have linked sleep problems to obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and depression, while recent research has found that sleeping too much, as well as too little, increases the risk of stroke.The US study suggested that for those with high blood pressure, regularly sleeping more than eight hours a night or fewer than five respectively…

  • Vegan Diet Eases Nerve Pain of Diabetes

    25 May 2015 | 5:39 pm
    Plant-based dietFor people with diabetes, switching to a plant-based diet may ease the searing nerve pain that can come with the condition, and perhaps reduce their risk of losing a limb, a small pilot study has found.More than half of adults with Type 2 diabetes may develop diabetic neuropathy, a type of nerve damage resulting from poor blood circulation and high levels of glucose in the blood, previous studies have shown. Diabetic neuropathy can lead to ulcers and other infections on the legs and feet, and is the primary cause of limb amputation for people with diabetes.There's no cure for…

    Family's genetic disease risk?While you may have a family history of obesity, diabetes, heart disease or even cancer, studies on how environmental factors influence and regulate gene activity— epigenetics— suggest day-to-day choices can defy supposed genetic predispositions and fight disease.In 2000, a groundbreaking experiment at Duke University showed the large role that nutrition plays in gene expression. Mice that carried the agouti gene were diabetic, obese, yellow-haired, and at a high risk of developing cancer. But when they were fed a diet of methyl-rich foods— those high in…

  • PALEO

    Beran Parry
    26 May 2015 | 7:36 pm
    Do you feel you have enough energy to get through the day? Most people don’t seem to have enough energy to get out of bed in the morning! But what if the whole energy problem could be connected to diet? What if a simple change in diet could re-charge our batteries and give us the energy our bodies need to power us through the day? The answer is much easier than you might think. All we need to do is take a good look at how our bodies have developed over the past couple of hundred thousand years and understand how we evolved to choose foods that were super healthy for us, foods that our…
  • The PALEO Method as a protective measure

    21 May 2015 | 4:49 pm
    The revolutionary Paleo Diet concept has stirred up a great deal of controversy, challenging the old dietary orthodoxy of a grain-rich diet that valued whole-grains as an important source of dietary fibre. As the latest research programmes enter the public domain and offer evidence to inform the debate, we find that the habits and opinions of an older generation remain stubbornly attached to our food choices, as if the dietary views of yesteryear were somehow still valid. But time and science have moved on. Thanks to rigourous research we now have a much clearer and deeper understanding of…

    Would you like to improve your health and cut down the risk of future illness? The answer we’re expecting is a resounding ‘Yes!’ but is there a simple and effective way to boost your health, restore natural energy levels and reduce the risk of disease? One of the most helpful conclusions from the rapidly evolving science of Functional Medicine is that our intestinal health plays a much bigger role in our overall wellbeing than was ever previously imagined. The complex colonies of bacteria that exist in the gut are responsible for breaking down our food and ensuring our bodies…
  • Do you ever get a little confused around the subject of fats?

    Do you ever get a little confused around the subject of fats? It’s perfectly understandable because there’s a lot of potential confusion around the subject. For many years, the prevailing wisdom was that we were eating too much fat and that was why people were putting on weight. So the food industry responded with countless numbers of ‘Low Fat’ versions of pretty much everything we ate. And the obesity epidemic marched on unabated. The answer had to be more detailed than just cutting out all fats. Because our bodies need fat for a whole range of health reasons. But not just any fats.
  • Do you have a sweet tooth?

    Do you have a sweet tooth? Do you find sweet things irresistible? Most of us have a weakness for sugary flavours but there’s a small problem with this apparently innocent indulgence. Our bodies don’t have a cut-off switch to tell us when we’ve consumed enough. It makes sense because sugary foodstuffs were quite rare in the natural world. Our distant ancestors didn’t come across sugar-loaded foodstuffs very often. And when they did, they got an instant rush of energy from the small amounts they’d find. Sugar-rich food was rare. So our bodies didn’t develop a mechanism to stop us…
