    Yet another “brand” pops up with ridiculous claims, and deceptive, illegal advertising tactics. Of course, they use the hit and run approach common with these sort of scams – advertising on websites that don’t take the time to check how dishonest their advertisers are, and disappearing in a few months only to pop back up with a new “brand” name. Rinse and repeat. Ridiculous Claims Take this image above – Think about it… Do you REALLY believe this person lost that huge belly in 26 days, and turned into the obvious gym fanatic at the right, all…

    Berberine has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine and by Native American Indians, yet has only recently been “discovered” by western medicine. With our heavy emphasis on corporate profits driven by man-made, patented medicines, we often are late in learning about natural products such as Berberine, but rest assured you will be hearing about it more in the future. Berberine is now being studied extensively and has been proven to lower blood sugar as well as the most commonly prescribed prescription drug metformin (1, 2), aid in weight loss, improve heart health, and…

    Hi all. So, it's summer. During the summer I work a summer camp for 5/6 year olds (I'm an elementary school teacher). Summer camp has me stressed and exhausted. Plus, I'm tutoring two hours a day. So I'm working ten hour days, I'm stressed, and I'm exhausted. I cannot find the energy to exercise at all and I find myself binge eating a lot. Somehow I've only gained two pounds, but I've worked so hard and it kills me to as the pounds creeping back. Any advice?

    Hello all. I have been a part of this group for more than 10 years but have never managed to make significant strides in my weight loss efforts. So, I'm scheduled to have the gastric sleeve operation on 7/15. I'm nervous but excited to take this huge step toward better health! So, my question to you is this: what did you eat during your liquid diet phase that kept you satisfied? I'm drinking 3-4 Premier Protein shakes, an egg, a cheese stick, sf Popsicles and sf jello.

We all know that this is day symbolized independence, freedom, bravery, and so much more, but lets be real. For a lot of people, myself included, the first thing I think of when I think of the 4th of July is BBQ. Hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, potato salad......over indulgence. Today I am smoking a brisket and some ribs. I don't think I'll be eating much of it. But I just wanted to know how people are handling this holiday, like…

    Today is July 1, 2015 and we are now six months into the year. Halfway through... two quarters. So it's time for another quarterly report. I posted my State of the Body address for Quarter 1 here. Looking back, I have to say the progress for Quarter 2 was sorely lacking.  In the first quarter, I lost six pounds (nine if you count from my high of 248) and got down to 239. In quarter 2, I gained one pound in the past 3 months (today's weight: 240 pounds... up three from last month). My clothing sizes, appearance, meds, and health is about the same as it was three months ago. My eating has…

So excited!My weight has been stable at 240 pounds, even with counting calories most of the week (1200-1250).

    Yoga Gear for Beginners to Get You Started I know, I know, I’m a yoga junkie. Yoga offers more than increased flexibility and muscle strength. Practitioners quickly discover that it clears the mind, strengthens the lungs, improves posture and promotes deeper calm and an inner sense of centeredness. When you choose to begin practicing yoga, finding the right gear will help you commit to this healthy lifestyle for the long haul. But let me make it clear. You do not need ANYTHING to participate in yoga. The most important thing you need is commitment. Anyone can do yoga, from rich to poor.

    High temps coupled with high humidity can make it pretty unbearable for your workouts. It's not only uncomfortable, but overheating could lead to cramping or even heatstroke. Here are some ways you can use the power of water to keep cool. Wet head: Before heading out, take a quick cold shower to cool down your skin. Soak your hair, leave it dripping wet, and stick it in a tight bun. As you run, the wind will feel amazing on your cool head. If your hair is short, sport a wet bandana instead. Bring along a bottle of water and periodically pour some on your head to keep up the cooling effects.

    It's amazing what a public health NGO can do when it divorces itself from the food industry. Canada's Heart and Stroke Foundation, just a few short years ago, was happily in bed with the food industry, selling it their "Health Check" front of package seal of approval and partnering with multiple fast food restaurants. But then last year, the Health Check program was shuttered and since then, the Heart and Stroke Foundation has forged a course that their prior partnerships would have undoubtedly prevented. First they published the most rigorous sugar recommendations in North America. Next they…

You probably also considered it one of the easiest to answer. But it turns out to be a trickier question than it seems. If we’re talking simple chronological age, of course, there’s no problem. You are the number of years you’ve been alive. But chronological age is not necessarily biological age. If it were, everyone would die by the time they hit a universal sell-by mortality date, say, 83.5 years or so. And…

    (CC BY 2.0) Kirybabe/Flickr Proper food and fluid are important not only to get more out of your exercise, but also to feel better during and after it. But you need to watch that you don’t overdo it on the calories. What and how much you need depend on how long and intense your activity is and whether you want to gain, maintain or lose weight. The key is to give your body what is right for you. Water is the ideal beverage for most people. Drink enough before (and during) exercise to prevent dehydration, and then after to replace fluid lost in sweat. Most recreational athletes do well…

    (CC BY 2.0) Shaheen Lakhan/Flickr You have probably heard the adage, “Listen to your body.” Well, your body has likely lost its way a long time ago. If you really want to be healthy, you better learn to listen to your brain. Humans are an interesting species. We have a large complex brain, but we have an animal’s body. Our brains can think, reason, and make important decisions to help us. Our bodies are controlled by a complicated neuro-endocrine system of numerous chemical transmitters and hormones. How we work with this throughout our lives will determine our health. The…

The takeaway message, at least according to most news articles about the JAMA findings, is along the lines of “Medical marijuana not shown to be effective for many problems it’s prescribed to help.” And one reality: research is still at square one A number of interesting Facts And Observations (FAO) are contained in the JAMA reports, but beyond the bare…

    (CC BY 2.0) Chris Connelly/Flickr The beginning of summer is a great time to begin a new health and fitness program. There are many ways to achieve this goal, and making these choices can be challenging, and it is common for beginners to seek counsel from those who know “the way.” Well, let me give you some practical advice on this. Never eat or exercise like someone crazier than you. I’m might be going out on a limb here, but I would say you do not want to exercise like this guy: And you do not want to eat like Takeru Kobayashi: What you do want to do: 1. Engage in…

    A friend recently shared this thought with me: You need an intermission to reconnect with your mission. More than growing defensive (a reaction I’ve *finally* learned indicates someone has completely captured something about me I wish to avoid)–I immediately realized she was right. These next few days will be my intermission of sorts. Stuff to sift through. Musings to be pondered. Mission statements to be revisited and revamped. A pausing to finally unpack my mental crap. A metaphorical decluttering of all contained in my cranium. An intermission to reconnect with my mission. The…

Almost 45 years ago I made the best decision of my life by marrying Du, the man who is my love, my best friend, my protector, my “safe person.” We have been through much through the years, tragedies, (deaths of three of our parents), joy (birth of 3 sons, and 4 grandchildren), and agony (diagnosis of his stage 4 cancer two and a half years ago), but through it all my Du has been my safe person.

The older I get the more I realize there’s nothing new under the sun.) Our initial YES! Day was born out of the realization I’d been on a NO-rampage.

    I told you in another post that I learned many things from my first Spartan Race. I have to say the most valuable thing is that I am capable of even more than I thought. Along with this, I want to say that what you are capable of has more to do with your mind, than your physical capabilities. A Positive Mind Set My strategy throughout the Spartan Race, obstacles and miles was to tell myself that I could do it.  Sounds simple,right? A lie, maybe? I had to have faith in knowing that I could do it, if I really wanted it. Could I climb an 8 foot wall by myself? No, but I had my team behind me.

    Melatonin, Sleep Enhancement, And ADHD Submitted by: Anthony Kane, MD Overview Melatonin is a natural hormone, which is produced and secreted by the pineal gland. Melatonin plays an important role in the regulation of many hormones in the body. Among its key roles, melatonin controls the body's circadian rhythm, an internal 24-hour time-keeping system that controls when we fall asleep and when we wake up.

    One of the consequences of being overweight or obese is that things other people take for granted, like travelling on a plane, or buying a pair of trousers is suddenly fraught with problems. Take, for example, getting an MRI scan. It might be that you’ve damaged your knee, twisted your ankle or you have a problem with your shoulder or back – an MRI scan could tell you what’s what and get you the right treatment. But have you ever seen an MRI machine that’s designed for bigger blokes? The picture on the right is of a conventional MRI scanner. The eagle-eyed among you might have…

  • Can I spot reduce fat?

    13 Jun 2015 | 12:06 am
    The short answer is no. But it's not that simple.  Here's a better answer: Your body stores fat where it stores fat. So maybe the back of your arms or thighs or stomach is where you notice you are pretty soft. Well, don't be distraught. Because while you can not technically spot reduce fat; you can focus more training on that area. If you want a muscle to grow then work it more. Why is this helpful? In order to get rid of all that softness you will need a two part strategy: 1- Lose body fat 2 - Gain muscle. #1 Train your body and build muscle. Why? Building muscle creates those nice…

    We all eat foods we realize probably are not the healthiest options. I once had a client say she used too much creamer in her coffee and that’s probably why she was gaining weight. 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
    Many times eggs are put on the bad foods list due to their high cholesterol content. 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…

When traveling you don’t often have the opportunity to cook your own food and snacks that travel well will only hold someone over for so long. I used to prepare all my food ahead of time when I was traveling and take it all with me. I had to call ahead to hotels and ensure they had refrigerators and carry one or two extra bags with me for all my food. If I had to fly somewhere it was even worse because I had no choice but to eat out while traveling. I found this the hardest time to…

    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.

    About one-sixth of our body weight comes from proteins, so it is essential to know ways to add protein to meals . Proteins compose our vital organs and are necessary to our growth and movement. 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.
